Burger King employees better watch out for Jon Hamm, according to Kim Kardashian’s best bud Jonathan Cheban. Cheban sides with Kardashian in the ongoing feud that she has with Hamm.
Hamm needs to “really just shut up and stop being such a Mad Man ... He needs to mind his own business,” Cheban told Hollywood.com at the Ocean Drive party at the Shelborne hotel in Miami, Florida on March 20. “Kim’s been on TV for 12 seasons — Mad Men’s a great show, but it’s on a smaller network, and they have a small audience."
Then the “Whopper” came next (pun intended). “Put Jon Hamm in a mall and people will go up to more people working at a Burger King than they will to him,” he said. “Bring Kim to a mall and there’ll be a riot. That’s what it is and that’s society ... We’ll see what he does after Mad Men.”
For fans wanting to know how Kourtney Kardashian is doing, Cheban said well — and that he was just at her house a few weeks back.
“Scott [Kourtney's baby daddy] is one of my best friends, and she’s doing great,” Cheban shared. “They are the most fun couple, it’s always something different with them.”
Cheban is busy as can be with a new “secret” project he is pitching in LA next week, dating this girl Catherine in Miami, a new clothing line BATTE, jewelry line JETSET, even a liquor line. If he finds time, Big Brother, Mob Wives and other reality shows are his guilty pleasures. “I can’t get into scripted [TV] anymore!” Cheban admitted.
It sounds like Mad Men doesn't stand a chance with Cheban.
So, what exactly is Kim Kardashian's job? Clearing up rumors and smoothing over celebrity feuds, apparently. Kardashian was first romantically linked to Kanye West last year, when she donned a Princess Leia costume for a sketch in the rapper's failed Comedy Central pilot. Recently the rumors flared up again, since both stars happen to be single — though, as Kardashian points out, that isn't quite the case.
This morning Ryan Seacrest confronted the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star on his radio show, and she joked, “I think I’m still married.” (Technically, Kim won't be available until she and Kris Humphries stop bickering over their annulment.) “I’m really not dating right now at all: I’m really just focusing on work,” Kardashian explained. “I know I always say this, but I’m trying to just get through my situation and just have fun.”
And what of the other feud that just won't die down? Kardashian tried to keep things classy when commenting on Jon Hamm calling her an "idiot." “I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another,” she said. “I just feel like, to be honest, it’s all about trying to stay focused and keeping everything positive. It really takes a lot more energy and effort to be harsh than to say something nice and be positive.”
It's been five months since Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries announced that their relationship was over -- so why are they still married? It seems that while they agree that their 72-days as man and wife were a bust, they can't see eye to eye on who should take the blame.
Kim and Kris both want an annulment, not a divorce, but they each want their former spouse to say that they committed fraud. Kris claims that Kim only got married for publicity and never intended their relationship to last "till death do us part." It's a popular theory, but Kim has always insisted that she married for love, not for ratings. Sources tell TMZ that Kim wants Kris to confess to defrauding her by saying he'd move to Hollywood, then demanding that she move to Minnesota after they were married.
Another issue standing between the couple and unmarried bliss: Money. Kris is reportedly asking for $7 million, though he signed a prenup that says he's entitled to nothing if they split. Kim may be willing to pay anyway -- but only if Kris will admit he's in the wrong.
Some things just naturally go well together: peanut butter and jelly, milk and cookies and Bert and Ernie. But according to Jennifer Lawrence, there's another pairing out there that has more in common than you would normally think: The Hunger Games and Kim Kardashian, for instance.
So what could the epic book series turned movie franchise have in common with the reality starlet? “I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone," Lawrence explained to Parade magazine. "But they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it. The books hold up a terrible kind of mirror [to Kim and Kris Humphries' short-lived marriage]: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitized to trauma and to each other’s pain."
Both franchises are sources of entertainment in their own unique ways (though it's important to note one is completely fictional -- we'll let you guess which one). We can't help but watch dramas unfold--and that's essentially what the Games and Kardashian reality shows are all about.
So basically the lesson to be learned from this is if we continue to indulge in reality television, we'll soon be sending teenagers out to kill each other all in the name of sport. Just some extra food for thought.
The Hunger Games hits theaters Friday, March 23. Don't miss it!
Kim Kardashian is not without a sense of irony. The reality star was seen rocking a blonde wig on March 12, mere days after Mad Men star, Jon Hamm, referred to her as an "idiot." And though it's doubtful the E! star donned a different hair color just for that purpose, you can't help but appreciate the humor of it all (insert dumb blonde joke here).
However, it's likely just a pleasant coincidence. Kim's been known to enjoy changing up her hair color every so often and even dyed her hair blonde back in 2009. And with her failed marriage to Kris Humphries well behind her now, she could simply be considering a fresh do for a fresh start. The color might soon become permanent.
In fact, the naturally brunette star tweeted about her hair change-up on March 12, writing, "I miss my real blonde hair. I might go lighter."
Do you prefer Kim Kardashian as a brunette or a blonde? Sound off below!

Considering how awful celebrities' behavior can be, it's a bit shocking that the Kardashians have become the family Hollywood loves to hate. They haven't committed any felonies (as far as we know), and in fact, their biggest crimes include Khloe's DUI and rampant overuse of the letter "K." Yet, the insults keep on coming.
The latest is from Mad Men star Jon Hamm. In an interview with Elle UK, he said, "Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly." Hamm added, “Incuriousness has become cool… It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me." One might argue that it takes a certain amount of intelligence to make everyone in your family a celebrity when you aren't particularly good at acting, singing, or dancing, however, Hamm isn't alone. Here's a look back at some of the nastiest burns directed toward Kim and company:
When talking to The Huffington Post in December, Jonah Hill lamented the fact that the Kardashians are more popular than Mad Men -- though he also admitted that he enjoys watching reality TV. He said, "The truth of it is, I have friends who work in TV and the Kardashians get higher ratings than their TV shows. Shows that people actually work hard on; writing, and creating, and trying to tell stories. The fact that the Kardashians could be more popular than a show like Mad Men is disgusting." Can't highbrow dramas coexist with lighter fare? We didn't hear Khloe complaining about Jonah following up Moneyball with the comedy 21 Jump Street.
Sacha Baron Cohen
At least Jonah Hill was trying to make a point about the state of our culture. Sacha Baron Cohen's Kardashians' dig is just pointless and mean. In the trailer for his upcoming film The Dictator we see his character trying to give Megan Fox a ruby in return for sexual favors. She says, "Is this a joke? Am I a Kardashian?" to which he replies, "Of course not. You're much less hairy."
Sacha Baron Cohen is know for his lewd humor, but even notorious nice guy Michael Buble took a random shot at Kim. At a concert in the fall he announced, "Please welcome Kim Kardashian," then added, "Nah, just f**ing with you! That b**ch isn't coming on my stage."
Snoop Dogg used the same expletive in a web video released in January, in which he tells Kris Humphries he shouldn't have tried to "wife the b**ch." Though we're fairly certain Snoop isn't a licensed marital counselor, and it's unclear if he's even met Kim, he offered this bit of advice: "She's not that type of a h--, she gets around ... She's cold-blooded, I'm pretty sure she'll have a book in a month talking about all the n----s that she got and how she played them.”
Kim's short-lived marriage seems to have riled up quite a few celebrities. In the fall Cher when on an anti-Kardashian Twitter rant and it had nothing to do with Robert Kardashian competing against her son Chaz Bono on Dancing With the Stars at the time. Her Tweets, "Never saw a Kardashian but these B--ches should b Drop kicked down a freeway! Not kidding!" and "feel like I live in a cave! Once watched J&Kate they were sweet! This s--t is HARD CORE! Is true Kardashian did Porno ! I'm so Fkn outa it !" led many to conclude that Cher's meltdown was instigated by the Kardashians' wedding special. Later Cher claimed she was talking about Bridezillas, but that doesn't really explain the reference to Kim's sex tape.
While discussing her marriage to Nick Cannon in November, Mariah Carey said, "I'm a real person, I'm not going to put on a fake face for Hollywood. Sometimes we make each other mad, that's why we aren't divorced after four months." Yes, attacking the Kardashians became so popular after Kim's divorce that Mimi was able to insult her without even saying her name.

We've watched the Kardashians go through messy breakups, plastic surgery, and botched at-home bikini waxes, so is there anything they're still hiding from the public? If anyone knows, it would be the Kardashians' former nanny, Pam Behan, who worked for the family since 1988 and is now writing a memoir.
While sharing stories about Kim's temper tantrums and questions about the identity of Khloe's father might help sell books, Behan tells Entertainment Tonight that the kids' were actually pretty well behaved. Their worst crime: "They were definitely spoiled." Though, she adds, "Any kid that grows up in Malibu or Beverly Hills is spoiled, but that doesn't mean they were naughty or bad. They never disrespected me."
Apparently Behan had a good relationship with the whole family, because she's sworn that her book won't be a "tell-all," and she's even planning on running it by the Klan before publishing it. Behan does touch on some salacious reports, but she's firmly on Team Kardashian. She says she "truly believes" that the rumors about Robert not being Khloe's father are false, and adds, "they had an unbelievable bond ... I would probably go as far as saying that Khloe was Robert's favorite."
As for Kim's divorce, Behan is convinced that it wasn't a sham. "I don't think she would do that to Kris Humphries otherwise," she says. "Kim does not need to get married on TV or anything like that to make money. Kim can make money on her own." Check out the whole interview below!

Justin Timberlake put a ring on Jessica Biel, and now there's actual photo evidence to prove it (click here to view). After months of speculation, the actress was finally spotted wearing her new bling while out to lunch at the Brentwood eatery Tavern in L.A. on March 8. And what a rock it is!
The ring -- which Biel has rarely worn in public since her engagement to Timberlake was announced -- features a large, slightly rounded square-cut diamond with smaller stones surrounding it, giving it a very vintage feel. And though the actual carat size is not yet known, it's certainly ranks up there with some of the most impressive sparklers to ever grace a celeb's finger.
But Biel isn't the only Hollywood star who's been found sporting such extravagant merchandise. In fact, it seems to be somewhat common among the entertainment crowd. Sorry fellas, but when it comes to engagement rings, size really does matter to these women.
During her short engagement to Kris Humphries in 2011, Kim Kardashian carted around a 20.5-carat engagement ring, which reportedly cost the NBA star a whopping $2.1 million. Yikes! Although, that's nothing compared to Paris Hilton's famous 24-carat canary diamond ring, which her then-fiance Paris Latisis presented her with back in 2005.
Additionally, Christina Aguilera rocked a 20-carat sparkler that her now ex-husband Jordan Bratman proposed to her with on Feb. 11, 2005. Meanwhile, Mariah Carey and Beyoncé are currently sporting 17- and 18-carat rings from their respective hubbies: Nick Cannon and Jay-Z.
And, of course, you can't say the word "diamond" without thinking of the great Elizabeth Taylor. The late actress received several engagement rings in her lifetime, given her eight marriages to seven different men. However, the most impressive rock was from her husband Michael Todd, who showered her with a 30-carat ring.
Indeed, for this legendary performer, diamonds really were a girl's best friend.
Kaela Humphries, 29, has become a new face at top agency Ford Models.
Humphries is basketball star Kris Humphries' sister. The sportsman was married to Kardashian for less than three months last year (11).
Modelling bosses have high expectations for their new girl, stating, "(We are) excited at the prospect of bringing this beautiful, engaging young woman to markets worldwide. A true (U.S.) size 16-18, Kaela will be in a league of her own."
Humphries was previously signed to Wilhemina Models in Los Angeles.
Former brieflyweds Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are at it again -- this time over unreturned wedding gifts.
The former couple were married in August 2011 -- for just 72 days -- and the value of their wedding gifts is estimated to be in the (absolutely nauseating) $100,000 range. And what to do with all those gifts?
Well, Kim's proposal is to make a donation worth twice that amount ($200,000) since any charitable organization would understandably prefer cash over fancy wedding gifts. Kris, though, is outraged that Kardashian has opted to keep the actual gifts instead of returning them to the people who spent money them -- with a source saying, "Kris respects Kim for donating money and is happy she is doing that. He 100 percent thinks that is great, but she should give the gifts back."

You may know him as Kim Kardashian's ex-husband, but the fact is, Kris Humphries can play basketball. That does not mean that the professional basketball player has had more luck sticking around in a city much longer than he stuck around in matrimony. In the league, Humphries has bounced around between a number of teams: Utah Jazz, Toronto Raptors, Dallas Mavericks, New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics. The power forward landed in Boston as part of a trade that brought future hall-of-famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets, and it was there that Humphries broke out personally and professionally.Humphries was born in Minneapolis, MN to Debra and William Humphries on Feb. 6, 1985. There, he joined his two older sisters, Krystal and Kaela, in the mixed race family. As a boy, Humphries starred in a different sport - swimming. He was actually the top 10-year-old in the nation in six events. In the remaining events, he was second to 18-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps. Humphries still holds the U.S. national record for the 50-meter freestyle for boys age 10 and under. At the age of 12, however, Humphries quit swimming to pursue basketball.That basketball career truly took off at Hopkins High School. In 2002, Humphries led his squad to its first Minnesota state championship in 49 years with a 25-2 record. As a reward, he was named a 2003 McDonald's All-American, Second Team All-USA (USA Today), Minnesota Mr. Basketball, as well as the state player of the year by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and College Basketball News. Humphries was also named to USA Today's Super 25 Basketball Team and was one of 10 finalists for the 2003 Naismith Prep Player of the Year.
Although Humphries accepted a scholarship from Duke University, he ended up attending his hometown school, the University of Minnesota (also his father's alma mater), where he made an immediate impact on the hardwood. Humphries was named the 2004 Big Ten Freshman of the Year and named to the All-Big Ten First Team. He was made an Honorable Mention All-American by both the Associated Press and Rivals.com. Humphries led the Big Ten in scoring and rebounding that first season, becoming the first freshman ever to do so. He even set the Minnesota single game scoring record with 36 points.
Clearly, Kris Humphries was ready for the next level. In 2004, the Utah Jazz drafted Humphries with the 14th pick in the NBA Draft. He played there for two seasons before being traded to the Toronto Raptors in 2006, where he helped the team nab its first ever division title. However, in 2009 Humphries was traded to the Dallas Mavericks. The following year he was once again traded, this time to the then New Jersey Nets.
The year 2010 proved to be a big one for Humphries in several ways. Not only did he start to see success with the Nets, but he also began dating Kardashian. As a result, he often popped up on the E! network show, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" (2007- ). The following year, they were engaged. On Aug. 20, 2011, the two were married after a much publicized media flurry. On Oct. 31, 2011 Kardashian filed for divorce. Many talking heads accused the marriage of being a sham and a publicity stunt. Their divorce was finalized in June 2013. Shortly thereafter, Humphries was traded to the Boston Celtics.
Began dating in November 2010; Got engaged on May 18, 2011; announced engagement on May 25; Married on Aug. 20, 2011 in Montecito, CA; Kardashian filed for divorce on Oct. 31, 2011, citing irreconcilable differences after being married for 72 days; Humphries filed for an annulment on Nov. 30, 2011; Officially divorced on June 3, 2013
