Kim Kardashian Is Making A Mint From Her Own Porn

She hawks everything from cheap perfume to public toilets, but another classy revenue earner for the Kim Kardashian empire is her sex tape — you know, the thing responsible for kick-starting her perplexing career.

John Travolta made the day of schadenfreude-loving bitches everywhere (present!) when he was denied a reservation at KFC. In the UK for some Scientology shindig, his people tried to get fancy by booking a table but were told that if John wanted his brutalized chicken chunks he'd have to wait in line just like everyone else.
