It must be real nice being a celebrity that makes millions a year. Some act as if the money will never end–and kudos to those who can keep it coming. While us regular folks need to budget in order to keep our homes in order, it never gets old to hear about crazy spending sprees. Check out these celebrities and how they waste their money. Guess if you got it, you got it?
Some people may like to paint Kim Kardashian as a dumb bunny, but when it comes to making money off her celebrity she knows exactly what she’s doing.
Her endorsement demands were recently discovered in “secret” emails, and apparently she requests a whopping $750,000 to $1 million minimum for each product endorsement along with five first class plane tickets and one coach fare for any travel, reports The New York Daily News.
The “secret” business emails somehow landed in the hands of Radar Online.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and wife of Kanye West also wants everyone in her entourage to be put up in a luxury hotel while she stays in a a suite, according to the leak.
Then there’s her glam fee and other costs. “Portal to portal first class executive ground transportation, airport greeter service, security, glam fee (day rate for her hair and makeup squad), and a per diem” also must be paid.
And she has to have final approval on everything, of course. “We would need approval over photographer, all photos used in print materials, glam squad (hair, makeup, stylist, manicurist), hotel/airline/car service and PR usage,” her representative reportedly wrote in the email.
Kardashian’s camp is saying the emails aren’t real. “I spoke with Kim, and the emails are fake,” the rep told the Daily News.
Kardashian, who turned 34 this week, does pull in a pretty penny for her fame. According to Forbes, the reality star is worth $28 million.
Back in September, rumors first started swirling that rapper Tyga, 24, was possibly involved with Kim Kardashian’s youngest sister, Kylie Jenner. It all started after they were seen partying together (and there is video of him encouraging her to drink a shot). He shut down such rumors when they first came about:
“I HATE BLOGS!”
“DON’T BELIEVE THE RUMORS, BEEN FRIENDS WITH THE FAMILY FOREVER. WERE ALL JUST FRIENDS.”
But the rumors continued and only heated up when the two were spotted hanging out more and more, and were recently photographed hanging out by their lonesome in France, England, Switzerland and Greece this past week. So what’s really going on with these two? While you might not get an honest answer anytime soon, Tyga is responding to people attacking his character over the alleged relationship.
According to E!, a person following him on Instagram called him out, but also brought his son, King, into the conversation:
“Nasty a** pedophile..your career and family is worth losing over this Kardashian baby thot @kyliejenner…I hope @blacchyna takes you away from your son…you should be locked up.”
His response was equally harsh:
“why u sound so hateful. U don’t know s**t bout my life but the fake s**t u read online. Worry about your sad boring life. U wish u can have a baby by a ni**a like me and live this lifestyle…let me guess no one wants u or ever attempted to spoil u and give u the world like I do for mines. Your ugly not just physically but in your soul. Never speak on my son.”
I’m wondering what Blac Chyna is thinking about all of this. While Tyga and Jenner could very well only be friends, it’s odd that she’s doing all this traveling with him around Europe. And considering that Blac Chyna was (or still is) close to Kim, ‘me thinks’ we’re entering messy territory. What do you think?
Recently, North West captivated us with her adorable cheeks and her Mommy & Me couture while becoming the youngest front row guest at Paris Fashion Week. Instead of living vicariously through her, children everywhere can have playtime like the one-year-old Chanel model.
In an Instagram post, Aunty Khloe Kardashian revealed the dolls North plays with. Unsurprisingly, they were modeled after her parents Kanye and Kim Kardashian West. The Kanye doll wears a faux fur vest and leather pants and the Kim K. doll flaunts a cheetah print top and fitted skirt that accentuates the doll’s curvaceous hips.
The manufacturer of these toys, Celine Dolls, posted the parental dolls along with North’s own version on their Instagram.
North’s doll is seen wearing a pink dress with a Eiffel Tower sequin patch. Although the doll is cute, Hollywood Life reports Kim has noted pink is not North’s favorite color or “thing.”
If you are interested in purchasing the West Family dolls or perhaps create your own, Celine Dolls’ starting price is $198 with a deposit of $100. Please note, these are the base prices per doll.
Will you be purchasing a doll family?
Kim Kardashian is defending her parenting skills after some outlets reported that she forgot her daughter, North West, inside of a Paris hotel. A video of the alleged incident captures Kim exiting a hotel in Paris and heading to her vehicle without North. Seconds later she’s seen returning to the hotel and leaving back out with North on her hip.
Shortly after the reports began circulating, Kim came out to shut down and laugh off the silly speculation. According to Kim, she exited the hotel before North because she was simply ensuring that her carseat was in place first.
Heard on the radio today some story I forgot my daughter at our hotel as I’m leaving for the airport. Are you kidding me?!?!?! LOL

I went to the car to make sure the car seat was in because the day before we had a car seat issue. — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) October 3, 2014
Do u guys really think a 1year old would be inside the lobby by herself!Oh wait she was waiting to check out lol

While I highly doubt that Kim forgot her 1-year-old daughter inside of a hotel in a foreign country, most of us knew that it was only a matter of time before folks began questioning her parenting skills again. Especially after Nori was spotted sitting front row during Paris Fashion Week.
I’m usually unmoved by celebrity gossip, but when it comes to children, I’m sensitive. The thought of celebrity parents parading their offspring around like accessories in a desperate attempt to stay relevant in pop culture really sickens me. So when a recent photograph of Kanye, Kim and the beautiful little North West dressed alike in lingerie-esque black Givenchy ensembles made its way down my Twitter timeline, I was equal parts horrified, mystified and empathetic for the child.
On a night out with paparazzi swarming, attention-gluttons Kim Kardashian and Kanye West attended a NYFW show to support Kim’s sister, Kendall Jenner. In tow was their adorable infant, North West… only she wasn’t dressed like an infant at all. It seems that she was dressed to match her mother’s very adult, sheer, black get-up in a see-through lace blouse of her own. She walked along with little black pants and sneakers that looked less than comfortable for a child who can barely walk securely on her own two feet.
I absolutely applaud parents for taking interest in their childrens’ appearance. I love that we are seeing so many fashion-forward ideas for the little ones. What I can’t endorse is the trend of dressing children in outfits that are clearly too grown up for them. Why is an infant dressed in a see-through blouse? Whose idea was it to design such a thing for a baby?
Little North West looked uncomfortable to say the least, and who can blame her? I can only imagine that she was dying for a comfortable onesie and her toys at that time of night. I doubt that she was excited about some scratchy lace get-up and dozens of photographers rushing her in a hail of flashing lights. To my way of thinking, a baby has no business being put on display and opened up to any and every kind of criticism and energy before they can even learn to speak. Babies aren’t accessories or props. They aren’t pets we dress up for show. They’re little humans that need a whole different standard of care than adults, but for some reason, we’ve decided to ignore this as pop culture seems to drive most of everything nowadays.
It’s unfortunate that we’re not more careful about what kind of attention we invite to our own offspring, the ones we’re supposed to be protecting and nurturing the most. Perhaps it’s the times we are living in that give acclaim and reality shows and front pages of magazines to people who have done nothing but simply exist. This, in turn, creates the struggle to stay in the public’s eye, and too often, pop culture celebrities thrust their children into the fray in a way that is less than smart, chipping away at their ability to truly be innocent children. It’s not impossible for celebrity parents to raise children AS children, but I suppose that if being famous for being famous is your bread and butter, you’ve got to maintain visibility in any way possible–even if it that means sacrificing your child’s childhood.
Here’s to hoping that North West gains some sensible adult allies as she grows and develops.

We have barely scratched the surface when it comes to fall television shows and there have already been some changes. Sure our Thursday nights are dominated by Shonda Rhimes, Scandal and her new hit, How to Get Away with Murder, but will you dedicate your time to watching other stars? Here’s a cheat sheet on celebrities expected to make their debut on both the big and small screens–along with one or two getting their walking papers.
While entering the Balmain Womenswear show for Paris Fashion Week earlier today, Kim Kardashian got quite the scare–and it came at the hands of a known troublemaker whose behavior is getting more and more out of control.
As Kanye and Kim exited their vehicle for the show, photographers and fans swarmed their car. Security was present, but things quickly went left as Kardashian stepped out. A man grabbed her by her legs and tried to pull her down.
Security stepped in quickly to pull her away, and mom Kris Jenner could be heard screaming “stop it!” as the scene unfolded. Kanye, who was on the opposite side of the car, pushed through the people to get over to his wife, but she met up with him to calm him down and let him know that she was fine. Reportedly, other photographers were the ones who held the man down as she was whisked away. The Wests continued on into the show with security all around, and the scene as they entered was ridiculous to say the least. A sea of people crowded around and flashes went off like crazy.
TMZ reports that the attacker was Ukranian “prankster” Vitalii Sediuk, and his rep says that he is taking credit for the lunge at Kim. If you’ll recall, he’s the same guy who tried to give Will Smith a kiss on the red carpet of one of the actor’s film premieres (and was smacked by Smith for it). He’s also the guy who jumped on Brad Pitt on the red carpet of the Maleficent premiere. AND at the premiere of “How To Train Your Dragon” at the Cannes Film Festival, Sediuk crawled underneath America Ferrera’s dress before security grabbed him.
Sediuk was a reporter for the Ukranian TV channel 1+1 and used his credentials to do most of these things. He was fired ONLY after the incident with Ferrera, so it’s unclear how he keeps getting access to events and places in order to do these things. Either way, he needs to be stopped before he gets even more brazen with his so-called “pranks.” And this is also a sign that these celebrities need better security. What if wasn’t a prankster, but a complete crazed and violent person? Scary.
Check out TMZ’s video of the incident HERE.
Everyone wants celebrities to speak on a social issues–until they actually speak on them. Here are 10 different times that celebrities decided they wanted to make a difference or speak about hot button issues in a less than serious way by way of social media, but it didn’t turn out the way they hoped. Fail!
[Watch] Wendy Williams Eats A Crow After Losing Bet About Kim & Kanye Actually Making It Down The Aisle
Last year, Wendy Williams made a bold declaration. The daytime TV host was under the impression that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s engagement was a sham and expressed extreme doubt about the high-profile pair actually making it down the aisle. However, her suspicions turned out to be incorrect. Kim and Kanye exchanged vows during an Italian wedding ceremony.
“I could be wrong, and if I am let it be known on today, Monday June 24th, if I am wrong and they actually get married, I will eat crow right here on this stage… with a lot of hot sauce.”
She later noted that she would chow down on the bird on the couple’s “73rd day” of marriage. Well, the time has come for Wendy to eat her words, literally. For the new season of her daytime TV show, Wendy tried crow gumbo prepared by a gourmet chef.
“So last season of the show I made a bet that Kim and Kanye’s marriage wouldn’t last longer than 72 days and I told you that if it did, I’d eat crow. That’s an expression we use; that’s not something we’re supposed to do! But I lost the bet,” she explained before introducing Chef Kevin Burrows.
Once the dish was prepared, Wendy dug in.
“It tastes kind of like chicken liver. You know, it’s not so bad,” she expressed.
“But there you go, I’m a woman of my word.”
Of course, Wendy couldn’t allow the segment end without resorting to her usual shenanigans.
“Just because they’re married doesn’t mean they’re happy! We’re watching you for the next 73 days Kardashian-West,” she concluded.
