John Legend REPLACES Lionel! Jumps On Board ABC's Duets!

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 01:20 PM PDT

Lionel Richie out, John Legend in!

Sounds like John will now be replacing Lionel on the upcoming ABC musical competition, Duets!

Back in March, Lionel announced he'd no longer be taking part in the show because of scheduling issues in promotion of his new album, Tuskegee.

In his place, John will star in the series alongside Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke, as they each scour America for the perfect duet partner!

Legend says:

"I'm thrilled to be part of Duets, and I'm looking forward to finding an undiscovered gem out there. This is going be a lot of fun."

Though we were looking forward to seeing Lionel, we think John's a pretty good fit for the show, as well!

Tune into Duets when it premieres on May 24 at 8pm!

"Sometimes I feel like I'm a bit sick of it. There's only so many times you can listen to the one song. I like the fact that people are still discovering it and I don't feel like it's a noose around my neck. But at the same time, I do wonder how many times you can listen to the same piece of music. I can't think of any song that's ever been picked up like this and I do feel like saying to people sometimes 'Come on guys, there are other songs out there."

GCB & Family Guy Explode With Ratings Juice, Rest Of TV Lies Flaccid

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 12:30 PM PDT

Last night, television watching was short to many participants for a good, old-fashioned viewing orgy!

That show with Kristin Chenoweth , GCB may finally be finding its good, Christian footing in the ratings, rising from the dead by 27%.

The only other show to gain audience members was Family Guy, which grew 12% (in viewership).

The rest of basic cable either stayed the same or lost some fellows - with The Amazing Race falling hardest by 11%.

We bid you adieu, traditional TV watching... Bonjour, future of streaming!

E! Picks Up A Singing Competition Reality Series From Idol Producer!

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 12:10 PM PDT

Cable is taking ova!!

With ratings for American Idol dropping, E! is attempting to jump on the bandwagon fill the singing competition void with a show of their very own!

The network just announced that they have picked up Opening Act: a talent competition reality show from American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance executive producer Nigel Lythgoe.

The show comes fully-equipt with judges -- Mary J. Blige, music producer/songwriter Antonina Armato, and Lythgoe himself -- AND a very unique prize: to go on tour with Nicki Minaj, Rod Stewart, LMFAO, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Jason Mraz or Gym Class Heroes as their opening act.

That is WAY better than money$!

Another odd thing about Opening Act -- there are NO auditions.

Nigel and his peeps will find contestants on the internet, then fly them to El Lay for some training and an amazing one-time performance.

This actually sounds like it could be worth watching! Good movie E!!

Mariah Carey brings her uncomfortable cameltoe to Austria: just embarrassing?

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 08:26 AM PDT

Here are some new photos of Mariah Carey performing the "closing concert" at an Austrian ski resort. First, you know Mariah got PAID. Big time. The past week has been all about Mariah and Nick's vow renewal, which they ended up doing in a paparazzi explosion in Paris. And then from Paris, Mariah flew to Austria to WORK? Of course she got paid. And I'm guessing it was in the eight-figures.

But really, can we talk about Mariah's cameltoe? Because it's making me uncomfortable and happy all at the same time. Like, I think I know HOW it happened. Mariah was all, "You guys, I'm totally going to wear this super-cute red ski outfit while I'm singing, and everyone will see how much weight I've lost and it will be amazing!!" And then she decided that underwear would ruin "the line" of the ski suit, so she went without. Thus, massive cameltoe. At least we know she got a Brazilian before her vow renewal? Too graphic? Good God, just look at her. Don't tell me that Mariah's Cameltoe of Doom isn't the thing that's too graphic. Mariah needs to let her girl breathe.

Incidentally, beyond the wardrobe malfunction, I think Mariah looks great here. Her hair looks especially awesome.

Bob Geldof hates his grandson’s name (LOL), begs Peaches to change it

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 07:44 AM PDT

Bob Geldof Peaches Geldof

While Bob Geldof has essentially looked the same for the past couple of decades, I feel the need to clarify that this is a very recent photo of Bob from 4/13 in Dublin. Not that it truly matters because I view photos of Bob Geldof in the same way that I see pictures of Rosie O’Donnell — if you’ve seen one photo, you’ve essentially seen them all.

Anyway, Bob is coming out of one of his quieter phases to raise hell again. As Kaiser reported about a week ago, Bob recently became a first-time grandfather after his middle daughter, Peaches, gave birth to a baby boy, which she and boyfriend Thomas Cohen named Astala Dylan Willow Cohen-Geldof. However, it’s not all sunshine and hippie roses for Bob, who has actually spoken out about how much he vehemently dislikes his grandson’s name, and he wants Peaches to come to her senses and change Astala’s name to something more masculine. This is pretty rich coming from the King of Bad Baby Names, right? While it seems strange for me to be defending Peaches in any way (other than to congratulate her on a healthy baby boy), I think it’s time for Bob to STFU:

Bob Geldof Peaches Geldof

He’s hardly one to talk about unusual baby names, having gone against the grain for all of his own three daughters. But Sir Bob Geldof has certainly been left less than impressed about his daughter Peaches’ taste in names. The Boomtown Rats legend hates his grandson’s title so much, he’s even been begging her to change it.

Peaches gave birth to her first child last week and named the little boy Astala Dylan Willow Cohen-Geldof – a name both herself and her fiance Thomas Cohen had picked out before he was even born.

But she clearly doesn’t have her father’s agreement, as he pokes fun at the bizarre name and reveals he has asked the couple to think again. He told The Sun: “Yuck! What’s he going to be called in school? Ass? Stella? It’s a girl’s name, let’s face it.”

Sir Bob could even be blamed for starting the trend of having unusual names in his family. He has a daughter, Fifi Trixibelle, 29, who they named Fifi after his aunt’s name and Trixibelle because his late ex-wife Paula Yates wanted a belle in the family. They then also had 23-year-old Peaches, who has the middle name Honeyblossom, as well as youngest daughter, Little Pixie, 21.

But Geldof has defended his own odd name choices because they all mean something and have special reasons for them. And although he is not a fan of the tot’s given name, Bob is ecstatic that he finally has a boy in the family, branding it “great.” He added to The Sun: “I’ve swam in oestrogen my entire life, and now finally a little chap comes along.”

Peaches announced the happy news she had given birth last week on her Twitter page. She wrote: “yes, it’s true – I’M A MUMMY!” And added: “My little boy is the most beautiful thing in this world. When he holds @tomfromscum’s finger with his hand its the sweetest thing ever.”

A few weeks before the birth, Peaches told Hello! magazine they had chosen out Astala’s name. She said: “We found Astala in a baby name book – quite an obscure one. This is going to be a very stylish baby. I wanted a Jewish name because my fiance is a Jew and the name is the male version of Esther.”

[From Daily Mail]

The way I see it, Bob had three shots at naming children, and he failed miserably on all occasions. While it could be argued that it may have been Paula Yates who came up with all these awful names (after all, she did name her subsequent daughter Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence with Michael Hutchence), Bob has always been a bit of a stubborn old man and would certainly never let someone else name his children without considerable input from himself. So what I’m saying is this — Bob totally named his kids Fifi Trixibelle, Peaches Honeyblossom, and Pixie. In comparison, Astala is not that bad at all. It’s not great, but it could be much worse.

Here’s a photo (from Peaches’ Twitter) of the customized cake at her baby shower. Yeah, the kid might get a little bit of hell for his name but nothing in comparison to what Peaches and her sisters have lived with for their entire lives.

January Jones actually holds her (ginger?) baby Xander Dane in public

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 07:30 AM PDT

Here are some photos of January Jones and her son Xander Dane Jones out and about yesterday in LA. Several sites (The Superficial!) have been teasing January about her ice-cold vanilla bitchery extending to her son, because she is so rarely photographed in candid shots with the baby. I'm not saying NEVER. Just rarely. There are some photos from a few months ago where she was carrying Xander, but these are the first we've had access to, where January is actually carrying Xander in her arms. Note: I'm not saying January is a bad mother at all. I actually think that she doesn't want too much attention drawn to her son, and she actively tries to avoid candid photo-ops with him. Maybe that's naïve of me, but that's how I read it.

As for little Xander Dane and his mysterious paternity… well, I've already analyzed that to the hilt last year. My theory (CAUTION: MERE SPECULATION!!) is that Matthew Vaughn is the father, and January isn't confirming it because Vaughn is married (to Claudia Schiffer) and he's already a father to three kids. Vaughn directed January in X-Men: First Class, and it was during filming that she became pregnant. So… people always assumed it was somebody working on that film, and we had such a great time guessing, didn't we? As I'm looking at these new photos of little Xander (January's little X-Man!), I have to wonder… is this baby a ginger?!?!? Dear God. What if Michael Fassbender was the father this whole time?! No, right? Fassy likes much darker girls – I can't see him fooling around with January. But if the Fassbender genes are present, we should be able to see them coming out in Xander soon enough. GAH.

Lindsay Lohan’s White House Corres. Dinner gown: busted or appropriate?

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 05:21 AM PDT

Yay! We have photos from the White House Correspondents Dinner!! HUZZAH BITCHES. I already covered the speeches and some highlights from the event yesterday, so now that we have photos, let's just talk about fashion and celebrity gossip from the event. And let's start with everybody's favorite traveling crackie, Lindsay Lohan.

After missing her first flight from LAX to DC, Lindsay eventually arrived in town and hit up a pre-party, and then made it on time to the Correspondents Dinner. Lindsay wore this full-on ball gown to the event, and while I have to give her credit for actually putting in some effort, it does seem like she was overdressed. Like, she thought she was going to the Oscars when most ladies were in much simpler gowns or cocktail dresses. I will also give The Cracken credit for taking a shower – she didn't look like she had been rolling around in a vat of orange spray tan. What I won't give her credit for: the lip injections, and looking like a middle-aged hooker.

Thus far, I haven't heard any stories about the Cracken at any of the post-dinner parties, but the day is just beginning, and I'm sure those stories are coming. By far the funniest story involving Lindsay in Washington also involves Rick Santorum:

Does Rick Santorum have a crush on Lindsay Lohan? The former presidential candidate reportedly asked the actress to pose for a photo at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, then awkwardly denied it.

Lohan was sitting with Greta Van Susteren, whose invitation to the star drew fire from Meghan McCain, at the annual event when Santorum approached. He reportedly asked Lindsay to take a picture of him with Van Susteren, then snapped a photo of Lohan. Not along with him, just a photo of Lohan. Alone.

Random? Sure. But probably harmless. The funny part is that when asked about this by a reporter shortly after, he dodged the question unnecessarily.

“I took a picture of a lot of people tonight,” the visibly uncomfortable politician said, as though he could not remember what happened minutes earlier.

[Via The Hollywood Gossip]

Sketchy? Of course. There's also a photo of Santorum looking down on a seated Lindsay… and it just feels gross. Creepy.

More photos of Lindsay… this is the crack face who will portray Elizabeth Taylor. Lindsay recently said, in response to criticism about her taking the Liz & Dick gig, that "I know that I’m great and I know that I know Liz Taylor really well." She knows she's great, y'all.

Anne Hathaway on a 500-calorie diet, gargling with egg whites for ‘Les Mis’

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 04:58 AM PDT

These are photos of Anne Hathaway on the London set of Les Miserables a few weeks ago. As you can see, this was when Anne was freshly shorn for her role as Fantine. I'm still not crazy about the cut, but at least Anne didn't do it to be trendy – she did it for the character, because she's THAT committed to the role. And she probably thinks the dramatic hair cut will help with her Oscar chances too. But I'm worried about Anne, Oscar campaign or no Oscar campaign. This hair cut does not look cute on her, and I worry that it's going to be really rough on her as she grows it out. I could be wrong, of course. But I don't think Anne will be able to pull off a gamine pixie cut.

Another thing that's worrying me about Anne: her weight loss. She looks thinner in these photos, and there have been several reports about the "crash diet" she's on so that she can look deathly for the role. The Mail reported a month ago that Anne was trying to lose 16 pounds in three weeks, and now The Mail claims that to keep the weight off (temporarily), Anne is subsisting on 500 calories a day:

Life really is miserable for Hollywood star Anne Hathaway. The 29-year-old, who is filming the musical Les Miserables in London, has been gargling with egg whites every morning to help her voice sound as smooth as possible.

This is on top of a miserly diet – she is reported to be on just 500 calories a day so she can look super-thin in the role of dying prostitute Fantine.

'Anne isn't a professional singer and is not used to pushing her voice. She's not talking for eight hours at a time when she isn't working and gargling with egg whites to coat her throat and keep her vocals silky-smooth,' says a source. 'She knows this is the ultimate test as to whether she's a credible musical star.'

[From The Mail]

Poor Anne. I wonder how much longer she has on the film. Probably only a few weeks more, I'd think. And then it's back to talking like a regular person and eating real food. I've never heard of the "gargling with egg whites" thing. Does that work? All I've heard is stuff about tea and honey.

You know what sucks for Anne? Next up for her is the promotion for The Dark Knight Rises. She's going to have to do a month full of red carpets and interviews with this hair. Poor Annie. Incidentally, at CinemaCon last week, the chairman of Universal debuted some footage of Les Mis, and it just happened to be Anne singing "I Dreamed A Dream". Yeah… the studio is totally making Anne the centerpiece of the Oscar campaign for Les Miserables. So… there's the payoff.

Beyonce on the “fake pregnancy” rumors: “It wasn’t hurtful, it was just crazy”

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 04:29 AM PDT

Beyonce's appointment as People Magazine's "Most Beautiful Person of 2012" is the gift that keeps on giving. As I said at the time, I'm cool with Beyonce being named the "Most Beautiful" – she's very beautiful, she's talented, she has a great work ethic, and I think it's nice that People Mag has gone back-to-back with women of color for the "Most Beautiful" issue. Now, all that being said, Beyonce's interview in the magazine is cray-cray. Beyonce is trying so hard to convince us of EVERYTHING, from her natural hair to her breastfeeding Blue Ivy to her "legacy." Was Bey always this try-hard? No, right? She used to be much more reticent. She didn't have to show us everything about her life. Personally, I blame Gwyneth Paltrow – but that's my default. I also think Bey's PR has gone to hell in a hand basket since Mathew Knowles, her dad, was pushed out as her Svengali-like manager. Since Mathew was pushed out, Beyonce seems like a different person. Which brings me to this - People Mag just released more excerpts of their cover story, and Beyonce tries to tackle the whole "did she fake her pregnancy?" issue.

From the moment she stepped into the spotlight, Beyoncé has been the center of her fair share of rumors. But even PEOPLE's 2012 Most Beautiful Woman was caught off guard when, while pregnant with her first child, whispers started swirling that she and husband Jay-Z had settled on a surrogate to carry their daughter.

"That was crazy. It wasn't hurtful, it was just crazy," the songstress, 30, tells PEOPLE. "[I thought] 'Where did they come up with this?'"

But perhaps the person most affected by the surrogacy speculation was not the expectant mom herself, but rather her own mother, Tina Knowles.

"I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months," she says. "As a mother it was painful for me to hear the crazy rumors. And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous."

Alluding to an Australian interview in which it was later suggested that Beyoncé had been sporting a prosthetic bump, Knowles says, "It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid."

Fortunately, the protective mom adds, her daughter's global fan following offered plenty of support. "There was so much love and well wishes from all over the world — it made it easier to deal with the stupid rumors."

But the dust didn't settle once the couple welcomed their baby girl.

Amidst the joy of welcoming Blue Ivy on Jan. 7, the new parents were said to have upset the hospital with their high list of security demands — a rumor that Beyoncé clarifies is "so crazy" and "ridiculous."

[From People]

Where did they come up with this? From your collapsible, pillowy bump, Beyonce. And beyond that, none of us ever claimed that she was "pretending" to be pregnant for nine months. When she "announced" her pregnancy at the MTV Music Awards in late August, she was allegedly well into her second trimester, and basically four and a half months away from "giving birth" ("naturally"). That's one of the main arguments for the conspiracy theorists – that Beyonce's pregnancy was very, very sudden and she was very far along so quickly.

By the way, do you notice how Beyonce carefully avoid explicit denials? She calls those conspiracy theorists "crazy" and she blasts all of the reports about all of the hospital drama as "so crazy" and "ridiculous." But she doesn't say, "We never shut down the whole maternity ward, of course not. We never had our bodyguards deny parents the ability to see their newborn babies. We never issued a huge payoff to the hospital to keep their mouths shut about what went down." But whatever. I guess we're all just crazy.

Christina Aguilera deemed “a total bitch” by the UK boy-band The Wanted

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 04:29 AM PDT

My mother watches The Voice, thus, I have to hear all of her thoughts on the judges. She says Cee Lo Green is "creepy" and she likes Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, but she always has harsh words for Christina Aguilera. Considering I've never watched the show, I only have one question: what did you expect? Christina is a well-known monster. Every story about her these days involves her narcissism, her boozing, her ridiculous makeup, hair and clothing issues, and her general bitchery. Anyway, a few weeks ago, The Voice had some guest stars on – the UK boy-band The Wanted. I don't know anything about The Wanted, so don't ask. I was just watching this video (below) of the boys being interviewed, and they seem just like normal British lads, nothing special, but nothing horrible either. Anyway, during the interview, The Wanted lads claimed that during their appearance on The Voice, Christina was a total bitch to them. Around the 3-minute mark, that's when they start talking about Christina.

Them’s fightin’ words! British boy band The Wanted performed their new single on The Voice last week–and didn’t hold back when asked about their experience in a recent interview with radio station 92.3 NOW FM.

Judge Christina Aguilera “is a total bitch,” the band’s Tom Parker ranted in the video. “She might not be a bitch in real life, but to us, she was a total bitch. She just sat there and didn’t speak to us. Wouldn’t even look at us.”

“She was quite rude,” his bandmate, Siva Kaneswaran, added. “Who does that?”

Max George–who shared a friendly backstage smooch with Jennifer Lopez when the group recently stopped by American Idol–agreed with his pals’ assessments. “She was a bit scary, to be honest.”

When asked to compare their time on the two shows, George explained, “J. Lo’s hot, Christina’s nothing special.”

The Wanted performed on The Voice the same night Justin Bieber showed up to debut a preview of his “Boyfriend” video–and say Aguilera was equally cold to the “Baby” crooner, making a face as Bieber went in for a hug and a kiss on the cheek.

Aguilera, for her part, denies she snubbed the 18-year-old.

“Haha,” the singer tweeted last Wednesday. “Can’t a girl have a little Bieber Fever after getting kissed by the Biebs?”

Part of this stuff (especially the Bieber thing) is that Christina is being pushed as "the bitchy judge" as a stereotype to get people to hate-watch the show just to see Christina's latest act of bitchery. Like, people used to watch American Idol just to see Simon Cowell be rude and mean. But another part of it is that Christina's default setting is pretty bitchy and monstrous. She just doesn't seem like a nice person. At all. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, and being nasty and rude (and drunk!) has obviously gotten her this far. So whatever. I doubt Christina is losing any sleep over this. And by “sleep” I mean “she passed out after doing two dozen tequila shots.”

George Clooney flew solo in DC, had a great time: is Stacy Keibler on the way out?

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 04:29 AM PDT

I mentioned this yesterday, in the post about the White House Correspondents Dinner, but it probably deserved its own post, so here you go. After tweeting about fittings and workouts in preparation for the dinner, Stacy Keibler was a no-show. George Clooney went to DC without his girlfriend, allegedly because Stacy had gotten a job. And she had to work on a Saturday night? Hmm…

Actor George Clooney attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday night without his girlfriend. Where was Stacy Keibler? The actress was expected to attend, having tweeted about getting fitted for her dress.

“She couldn’t make it. She’s working,” Clooney told POLITICO, explaining that Keibler just landed a pilot for a television show. (Indeed, she tweeted Friday about landing a role on the forthcoming TBS sitcom “Men at Work.”)

The actor, sipping on red wine, was seated at the very front of the Washington Hilton’s ballroom at the TIME table along with Steven Spielberg.

Asked if he was bummed about not sitting next to Michelle Obama again, Clooney looked up at the first lady — who was chatting with comedian Jimmy Kimmel — and remarked, “She’s got a pretty nice date.”

[From Politico]

Clooney spoke to several outlets while he was in Washington, joking about his ER buddy Noah Wyle being arrested (Clooney said he called Wyle and offered bail money), and talking politics with the Washington Post, saying: "Because I'm an old Democrat, I kind of try to stay out of the Republicans' primary and let them do their thing. Then during the general election, you have a conversation about it. That seems to be the fair thing to do." Clooney was also spotted partying with friends at the post-dinner Vanity Fair party. Page Six's source notes, "It was jam-packed, and Clooney was one of the last to leave."

So, basically, Clooney was reminding us that he can still have a good time without his official girlfriend with him. Which makes me wonder… is Stacy on the way out? Stacy and George were spotted together last Thursday, out to dinner with Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber. I thought their body language looked comfortable, and I predicted that Stacy would be around for a little while longer. But I may need to get a second opinion. George and Stacy are coming up on their year anniversary as a couple… when? Maybe late July, early August. He hired her (whatever, he totally hired her) late last summer, before the Toronto Film Festival. So… will Stacy make it a year?

Here are some pics of Clooney at Dulles International yesterday:

Sofia Vergara versus Kim Kardashian: who looked worse at the Corres. dinner?

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 04:27 AM PDT

More photos from this weekend's White House Correspondent's dinner. I'm going to cover Sofia Vergara and Kim Kardashian's fashion in this post. Kim wore a green velvet gown which – much like Lindsay Lohan's ensemble – seemed too fussy and over-the-top for the event. But… I have to give Kim credit. She was dressed conservatively and appropriately for the event. She didn't wear parachute pants or a too-small corset. She contained her curves and jacked up her kat-face for the event. Speaking of kat-faces…

Kim brought her mother along as her date. Is Kris Jenner just a cartoon at this point? Because her face is crazy. And I really don't understand Kris's hair here. Like, if Tilda had done this hair, I would love it. On Kris Jenner, it's a katastrophe. There were also some reports that Kim was upset after being the "butt" of several jokes by Jimmy Kimmel (who referred to her as "the biggest threat to America"). I don't know, though – Kim might play it up to get sympathy, but I doubt she was offended. She probably just enjoyed being name-checked. And yes, Kim (and Lindsay) were there by invitation of Fox News – Pres. Obama had nothing to do with these C-list famewhores at the event. Obama was a guest of the White House Press Corps Association (or whatever it's called), and he spoke at the event because presidents always speak at the event, every single year. Stop blaming Obama for the Kardashians and the crackheads! He didn't invite them.

I'm also including Sofia Vergara, who looked kind of rough, in my opinion. She looks kind of Botoxy, right? Maybe it's just bad lighting. Her boyfriend, Nick Loeb, is some kind of heavy-hitter in Florida Republican politics, and Nick was Sofia's date. Sofia also got name checked by Kimmel as an example of what Colombian women look like (in a joke about the Secret Service).

Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom are pulling the plug on their E! spinoff show

Posted: 30 Apr 2012 04:26 AM PDT

You know how I keep telling you guys that my mom watches crappy reality programming like The Voice and Ice Loves Coco? Not that Ice Loves Coco is a terrible show – at all. If a marathon of Ice Loves Coco is on, I'll totally watch it. I keep talking about this stuff because my mom always recaps her favorite shows whenever we go out to lunch, and she's admitted that Khloe & Lamar is one of her favorites too. She loves both Khloe and Lamar. I mean… I like them, but I don't feel the need to watch their show or anything. Still, I acknowledge that their spinoff show is popular, and it has a following, and some people are really rooting for this marriage to work out in the long run. So… this news is interesting. Khloe and Lamar have decided to pull the plug on their show!

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have decided to pull the plug on their spin-off show “Khloe & Lamar.”

Sources tell TMZ, the show’s second season will be its last … because Lamar wants to focus on reviving his fizzling NBA career.

As we previously reported, Lamar was relegated to the Dallas Mavericks’ inactive list after putting up career low numbers this season. If he’s lucky, he’ll be traded. If not, who knows …

But we’re told Lamar is determined to make a comeback — and he feels he should focus on only one project. Lamar will be living in L.A. full-time and he’s hired trainers to help him get his game back.

According to sources, Khloe and Lamar WILL make occasional appearances on the reality mother ship,”Keeping Up with the Kardashians” — but that’s it. No mas.

[From TMZ]

I'm going to choose to believe that this is a good thing. That Khloe has decided that her marriage is more important to her than being pimped out by her mother. I want to believe that somewhere deep inside, Khloe knows that putting so much of her life and her marriage out there for public consumption probably isn't the best idea, and she and Lamar made this decision together. Because somewhere deep inside, I've got to wonder if Lamar kind of blames Khloe and her family for his career slump, and I wonder if their marriage is struggling, big time. Whatever goes down between them, I do think it's a good call to have it go down in private, though.

You know Kris Jenner is going to be PISSED.
