Let's face it: Kim Kardashian is a genius. She knows exactly how to stay in the headlines. Being seen with her "friend" Kanye West the day after he dropped a track about being in love with her made everyone's heads explode. But this morning on Today, she refused to discuss Yeezy, saying that she's been friends with him for years, "but you never know what the future holds." Uh, more publicity? (In the clip above, she disses Ann Curry, sniping, "I'm glad it's not Matt doing this interview." Right, because he would force you to answer questions.) Also note that all of this has been timed to coincide with the fact that her show returns this weekend. Anyway! Two self-involved people are a match made in heaven, no? Kimye forever.

The elegant and slightly icy Nicole Kidman is in talks to play the elegant and slightly icy Grace Kelly in a new film Grace of Monaco. The period piece would be directed by Oliver Dahan, who directed Marion Cotillard in the Edith Piaf biopic La Vie En Rose, and it's being compared to The King's Speech, in terms of tone. One thing that might be a little off? Grace Kelly was 5'6"; Nic is 5'11". [The Hollywood Reporter]
