Sawyer is “in the final stages of negotiating the interview” with Jenner, who reportedly is planning a docu-series on the E network about the gender transition, Jenner’s interview will air in May.

“He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing,” an unnamed source reportedly told People. “He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this.”

“It will air when he is ready to be open about his transition,” another source reportedly told People. “But he’s acting more and more confident and seems very happy.”

Jenner, who has not publicly confirmed the reports, divorced Kris Jenner, fellow star of the E! series “Keeping up With the Kardashians.”

Now it’s in God’s hands and I’m very comfortable with that right now.”

Flour Bomb Lands on Kim Kardashian’s Lack of Empathy for Animal Cruelty

Kim Kardashian got a bit of flour power as she was posing and doing TV interviews on the Red Carpet for her new True Reflection perfume.

A woman came from behind, yelled, “Fur hag,” and then dumped an entire bag of white flour on top of the reality star’s head to the shock of celebrity interviewers, publicists and her other handlers.

 

The embarrassing incident was captured by cameras and quickly went viral on social media.

The stinker of reality TV has been (big) butts of many jokes because she divorced her hubbie after 72 days of marriage bliss, has been accused of using child laborer in horrible conditions to make her clothing line and a laundry list of other Kardashian catastrophes.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals or PETA named her the worst dress celebrity in 2010 because she still wears fur.

But the 31-year-old celebrity may have jumped the proverbial shark with me. Kardashian laughed off the latest flour bombing indent, telling E! TV Thursday night: “That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me. Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that’s a whole lot of translucent powder right there.”

Security guards held the alleged flour bomber, described as a young Asian woman, until paramedics arrived at the London Hotel in West Hollywood and determined Kardashian was not harmed.

However, several days later, the fur-wearing Kardashian changed her tune and has indicated she is moving forward with pressing charges.

“I am just going to think about it, because I don’t want someone to think they can really get away with that,” she said. “So we are going to handle that.”

PETA immediately blasted Kardashian’s plan with with a statement released to TMZ. “If she presses charges, at least people will be constantly reminded of her selfish, callous disregard for the cruel deaths that she causes by wearing fur,” the animal rights group said. “How much better it would be if she decided to evolve and enhance her image by donating her vulgar furs and exotic-animal skins to the homeless. The activist acted from the heart, something Kim doesn’t seem to have. If anything, Kim should get a life, the very thing that she denies animals.”

The group was not involved in the flour dumping but said it is planning to help with the flour-bomber’s defense costs.

As a celebrity, Kardashian has a chance to help change the world. She and her family of Armenian decent have done some of it by bringing the Armenian genocide to greater awareness. Using her star power, she could help bring attention to needless animal cruelty in the fur fashion industry.

“PETA has tried everything from polite letters to public protests, but Kim Kardashian has not been moved by the news that animals are beaten, electrocuted and even skinned alive for real fur garments,” a PETA spokesman shared with TMZ. “Whoever threw that flour may reach her when our polite appeals did not.”

As a self-described animal lover and dog owner, how could she continue wearing fur — the very same fur from the slaughter of innocent animals? Not wearing fur would speak volumes and dispel the public’s notion of Kardashian’s beauty as only skin deep.

Kim Kardashian: Botox Goes To The Dogs

Kim Kardashian & Rocky

Pampered pooches are now getting nose jobs, eye lifts and even dental work to enhance their pearly whites as owners splurge on plastic surgery for their dogs.

One popular procedure Kim Kardashian had for her boxer Rocky is a neuticles which are bean-shaped silicone implants that replace the testicles of neutered dogs.

“It’s typically men who want them for their dogs,” said Idaho based veterinarian and author Dr. Marty Becker. ” And you can always tell when a dog has them because when he sits on the exam room table the clank.”

While most procedures seem to be unnecessary and frivolous most dog plastic surgery is to correct medical problems. Nose jobs are done to correct breathing problems for pugs, Boston terriers and boxers as, well as some cats. Eye lifts are popular for bloodhounds, bulldogs and mastiffs. These breeds suffer form a hereditary eye condition called entropion, which is a rolling in of the eyelid which can lead to blindness.

“I’ll do eye tacks to make droop eyes tighter and canthoplasty to make bulging eyes less likely to pop out-of-place,” said Dt. Patty Khuly a practicing veterinarian. Canine face-lifts help with drooping eyelids and Botox straightens out skin folds caused by wrinkles in share-peis.

“For dogs with crooked teeth, we can either extract the tooth or fit braces,” said Dr. Jan Bellows, a veterinary dental specialist in Weston, Fla.

Braces are usually needed for six months compared to years for humans, the cost range from $1,000-$5,000. Dr. Khuly said, “One of my in-house colleagues will restore canine crowns after root canals. We even go for orthodonture because straights teeth mean less periodontal disease.”

Dogs really are a mans best friend!

Kardashian Inc: How The Family Amassed $65 Million Last Year

According To The Hollywood Reporter:

Twitter, endorsements, paid appearances, fragrances: the new issue of the Hollywood Reporter magazine goes in depth with mom and manager Kris Jenner about the inventive and controversial ways she’s monetized reality fame for her family.

“We’re just this big family with a lot of drama and a lot of issues, and there’s someone here for everyone to relate to,” says the 55-year-old mother of six (Kourtney, 31, Kim, 30, Khloe, 26, Robert, 23, Kendall, 15, and Kylie, 13), wife to Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner, and, most crucial, hands-on manager of them all. “I think if you’ve ever been embarrassed by your family — like your mother’s a kook or your father’s too strict — the show gives you hope. I’ve had so many people come over to me and say, ‘I remember the episode where you were crying over blah, blah, blah, and it helped me so much and I got through my dad’s death because of you.’ ”
And then there are those who watch the family’s three series on E! (with a fourth going into production this year) for the there-but-for the-grace-of-God voyeurism: Thank God my mom doesn’t want to know the size of my boyfriend’s penis! Hey, at least my dad isn’t walked over by every single member of his family and my mom doesn’t engage me in a postpartum discussion about personal lubricant. When asked about that last particular discussion, Jenner looks genuinely puzzled. “Really? Who hasn’t had to use lube?”
Of course, this is a mother who has hanging in the bedroom of her immense home in Hidden Hills, Calif., a photo of her three eldest girls, over which one of them has scrawled in what looks like hot pink lipstick, “Hookers R Us.” But if the Kardashians have no filters, they have no pretenses, either. This is a great part of their charm.

Since their arrival on E! in 2007, thanks to such no-boundaries behavior, the tight-knit family has ably defied the laws of 15-minute reality TV fame while building a wildly profitable empire. As the cameras keep rolling on the eight-member clan’s topsy-turvy domestic life, the Kardashians have cashed in, making more money last year than what Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock and Tom Cruise are estimated to have earned combined: a staggering $65 million (a source close to the family confirms the figure). As manager, Kris Jenner personally takes 10 percent.

The branding mastermind behind this success is Kris, a former airline stewardess and self-proclaimed “momager” who pushed her kids into the national limelight. She grew up in a middle-class home in La Jolla, Calif., with a single mom (who ran a children’s clothing store) and, for most of her life, has played the role of wife to two public figures: first husband Robert Kardashian, the late lawyer best known for representing O.J. Simpson, and current spouse Jenner, 61. She was also, according to a former pal, socially ambitious and would strategically trail the footsteps of such types as the Hilton clan — with whom she was friends and certainly has leapfrogged in terms of power.

Kardashian spotted Kris Houghton at a golf tournament in La Costa, Calif., when she was 23 and was immediately smitten — he was a lawyer in his 30s whose family, says Robert’s first cousin Cici Bussey, “was like the Armenian version of the Rockefellers.” His father had the largest meat-packing company in Southern California; they had a mansion, Rolls-Royces, a tennis court. Kris was not a party girl, and in no way a Bohemian, says Bussey; she and Kardashian shared the desire to start a large family. They were married in 1978, and Kourtney was born 9 months and 23 days after the wedding.

Kim has led the way in incorporating her massive fan base (she has more than 6 million Twitter followers) into the decision-making process surrounding their endorsements, empowering them with a sense of ownership. Says Kim: “I have a blog that has 40 million hits a month. People leave comments: What shoes do you wear, and what lip gloss do you use? My mom told us, ‘So why not be a brand for our fans and give them what they want?’ Many of our ideas [about what to endorse] come from our fans and then our mother makes it happen.”

Kim now charges as much as $25,000 to simply mention and link to a brand or company in a tweet. It’s so effective a tool that businesses have begun including Twitter clauses in their contracts with the family, committing the girls to a set number of tweets about their product.
“I see a Twitter clause in almost every contract,” says APA’s Brian Dow, who works with the family on the majority of their commercial interests (WME represents the Kardashians as their talent agents). “It’s like having a photo run in a magazine. It’s another impression for a brand and another medium.”
