If you find yourself in the middle of embarrassing divorce proceedings you're welcome to hide out in the land down under — but not if you repeatedly lie to officials about your reasons for entering the country. Following her trip to Australia last month, Kim Kardashian has been placed on the country's immigration watch list, and could be banned, because she said her previous three visits were for pleasure when she was actually there on business. Apparently Kim didn't realize that Australians have both TV and the internet, and don't consider handbag launches and in-store appearances typical tourist activities. Officials wouldn't discuss Kim's case directly, but said, "If people are undertaking work in Australia they need to be on an appropriate visa with work conditions attached. If people do breach conditions of their visa, then the department can counsel them or cancel that person's visa." [The Telegraph]
Speaking of Kim, she's making a decent argument about why her wedding wasn't staged. She and her mom are great at creating fake TV drama, so she wouldn't have set herself up for humiliation. Supposedly she told friends, "I'm no dummy. The divorce would have been just as dramatic and dragged out as the wedding." [TMZ]

Hey, New York taxpayers, are you aware that you're paying $500,000 per year to provide Fox News with police protection? While the other networks pay for their own security at their New York headquarters, Fox News is protected by the NYPD. A police spokesman says, "Each of the networks gets police coverage to varying extents based on threat information," but a possibly disgruntled former employee says the real reason is that Roger Ailes is paranoid and thinks the terrorists are out to get him.

And you might have dents and all that stuff and the fender falling off, but that's okay. That's part of it." [N.Y. Mag]

Nothing says "celebrate" like a film about how you spent decades in prison for something you didn't do.
