If Kim Kardashian Wins An Oscar, We Quit Life

Kim Kardashian will eventually fade into obscurity? Yes. Kim Kardashian as an anal bleach spokesperson? It seems inevitable. But Kim Kardashian as a future Oscar winner? Well, that's now also a possibility according to big-name acting coach Susan Batson who recently took her on as a client. Known outside the industry as the woman who Nicole Kidman thanked in her Academy Award speech for The Hours, she also helped others like Jennifer Connelly, Juliette Binoche and Jamie Foxx realize their golden statuette dreams. Clearly enjoying a challenge, she's now planning to transform Kim from reviled reality star to a serious actress. And before you go thinking Susan will work with whoever will help her make a quick buck, she addressed this in an old New York magazine interview. "If you know who I said, 'Don't bother sending' to agents ..." she said, trailing off. "You have to have talent. Otherwise I really can't work with you." We hope you've had some rest, Susan, you have a mountain of a job ahead of you. [Page Six]
And it's just as well, with some gossip journalist/economics major releasing a book that says Kim's earning potential as a bottom-feeder might be coming to an end. [NYDN]
Phew, we can all exhale, Kim has returned to blogging after two whole weeks. [Radar]


Giving celeb journalists a reason to get up in the morning Kristen Stewart speaks about her love for babies and confirms Robert Pattinson is a natural with them while discussing the wee actresses that were cast as their Twilight: Breaking Hymen daughter, Renesmee. A Renaissance faire-issue name if ever there was one. "Rob's really good with them, too. Every time they started crying it was just like, I would literally go ‘Oh God, where's its mom?' I would be worried about the baby," she said. "He would literally go into the corner and just shake it to sleep. It was weird to see that." Well, we don't know if shaking babies is actually that good a thing, but we'll let the on-set baby wranglers deal with that one. [Hollywood Life]
Not to be outdone, Robert says Kristen makes an "amazing" bride. [People]

Charlize Theron reveals that she's happy to be single for the first time in 17 years. Taking a hiatus from acting in an attempt to fix her flailing near 10-year relationship with Stewart Townsend, she says that even though things didn't quite work out as she'd hoped on that front, it's been cool to stand on her own two feet for the first time in her adult life. "I've never been single," she says. "This is the first time in my life. From the time I was 19, I've been in relationships, literally gone from one to the other within a month. It's been good for me." [NYDN]
She also talks about working with Kristen Stewart in Snow White And The Huntsman saying she "just doesn't give a fuck" and she's "looking forward to killing her and taking her beauty. That's what happens, right?" [Radar]


The endlessly entertaining Courtney Love packed a sad at a show in Brazil and left the stage after someone held up a picture of Kurt Cobain. "I'm not Kurt. I have to live with his fucking shit, and his ghost, and his kid, every day," she said before she left. While she has a point, we doubt Frances Bean would love to be referred to as something to be endured. [Billboard]

While many of us would pull all sorts of ridiculous shit just to see what we could get away with, Jessica Simpson still deserves savage eye-roll after pulling her own little private Devil Wears Prada moment and making sure she was the only one riding the elevator when she went to get her hair did. And she does it all the time because of "privacy reasons," apparently. What could she possibly be doing in the space of a couple of floors? [NYDN]
