When Casting Husbands, Kim Kardashian’s First Choice Wasn't Kris Humphries

It may cause a reaction like this to hear, but there's talk Kris Humphries was not Kim Kardashian's first choice of trophy husband. Word on the street is that E! executives approached Danilo Gallinari of the Knicks to see if he wanted to start dating her ahead of the Kourtney & Kim Take New York debut – promising him fun things like intense media scrutiny. He apparently agreed to meet her but said no to TV, so they dumped him as an option and started trawling through the New Jersey Nets line-up. Kim and Kris married nine months later. But just because there's a possibility it was an arranged marriage doesn't mean it can't blossom into one of the most enduring showmances of our time, right? Call me a romantic, but just look at what John Travolta and Kelly Preston have achieved. [Wetpaint, Radar]

The ever-reliable Michael Lohan found his way to the nearest camera to tell his side of the story regarding allegations of domestic abuse from Kate Major. Clearly distressed that his legions of fans thought he threw a channel changer at her, he was keen to set the record straight: "I took the phone out of Kate's hand and threw it." Claiming she fabricated the story to earn tabloid money to pay for phone bills, he added that he's not so silly to risk getting hurt in an attack. "I have a boxing match coming up," he said. "I would never hurt myself because of her." You read that correctly, a boxing match. You can't make this shit up! [NYDN]
The judge also warned Michael: "You even dream of her and you're going to jail." [Radar]
But Lohan decided to go one better — and get arrested all over again — by contacting Kate, which is a direct violation of the protective order against him. And then tried to escape before falling into a tree. [TMZ]

It's hardscrabble times for all, folks, with even an Academy Award providing no immunity from getting evicted from your home — as Marcia Gay Harden can attest. Paying $10K a month and forking over a further $20K security deposit for a slovenly Santa Monica hovel, MGH was given the boot with three days notice after the owners sold the property without telling her. How did they do the inspections? Who would buy a place without seeing it? So many questions! She's currently hashing it out in court. [TMZ]
