Kim Kardashian Attacks Tabloids

Kim Kardashian has had it with tabloid magazines. In a series of tweets, Kardashian passionately refuted the rumors that she has had butt implants and blasted OK magazine for photoshopping the color of one of her sweaters. These are the things Kardashian deals with so that you can enjoy a peaceful America.

A snippet of Kardashian’s butt rant (we trademarked that phrase):

I’m seeing all these nonsense tabloids claiming I have butt implants-injections. Get a life! Using pics of me 15lbs skinnier (before I had my baby) comparing to me now! I still have weight to lose. Anyone who has had a baby knows how hard it is to lose weight (especially the last bit of weight) & your body totally changes! Making fun of me pregnant & making fun of me trying to lose weight now shame on you… I’m not perfect but I will never conform to your skinny standards sorry! Not me.

You have to admit, she’s got a point. But it’s just so… Funny. At least try to make your moral stances coherent. Shortly after this, Kardashian lashed out at OK for their photoshop job:

Hey Editors, Did You Know You Can Get PR Flacks to Buy You a Puppy?

Last week Shauna Bass, entertainment director of OK! magazine, lost her beloved Pomeranian Simba to an unnamed illness. As often happens in these situations, Bass was stuck with a huge vet bill on top of her enormous grief. Maybe OK! mag doesn’t pay very well, because Bass then solicited $5k in donations to cover her costs via an IndieGoGo page. Additional donations “will also be put towards the costs of buying a new dog.”

As Gawker pointed out, most of the $5,125 raised to date came from PR people whose job it is to get their clients on the pages of magazines like OK! Gawker felt that was a pretty blatant violation of journalism ethics. Gawker was probably right.

Our biggest complaint, however, is that Bass, who clearly can not afford emergency veterinary care, is planning on BUYING another dog. For the cost of a new Pomeranian puppy, she could rescue a dog from a shelter and have plenty of cabbage left over for vet bills. A dog like little Bella, pictured left, a 2-year-old Pomeranian saved from euthanasia at the pound by One Dog Rescue in Calabasas and now desperately in need of a home.

Bella doesn’t have any fancy papers from a breeder, but she does have a lot of love to give, and we think that’s the better option.

“Hi, I’m Britney and I’m a rehaboholic.” “Hello Britney!”

Britney bounced out of rehab. Ray Richmond really lays down the law to the young lady.

Former boyfriend Justin Timberlake seems to have gotten his Brits confused at the Brit Awards, saying in his pre-recorded speech:

Stop drinking! You know who you are. I’m speaking to you! You are going to get sloppy! OK! Magazine is going to say something bad about you.

Was this some coded message? Or is he just programmed to say stuff like that whenever he hears the word Brit?
