Kristin M.K. Ducote, star of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, was seen shopping at Miami Beach's Lululemon Athletica in this exclusive photo taken by Hollywood.com's Kim Everman. (See more photos of Ducote on Miami Fashion Revolution.)
Ducote, an accomplished model-attorney-turned-Chief Legal Officer of Merchant Services LTD, is married to professional race car driver Chapman Ducote, who is also close friends with Kourtney Kardashian's husband, Scott Disick. The friendship led to the Ducotes' appearance on the third season of Kourtney and Kim. What was the experience like on set? "The Kardashians are surprisingly down to earth and fun, especially Khloe," Ducote says. "I met her for the first time when we (Scott, Chapman, Khloe and I) went boating in Palm Beach, and by the end of the day I felt like we’d been friends for ages. Both Khloe and Scott were very witty and our time with them was filled with constant laughter."
And, these days, Ducote has plenty so smile about — not only has she appeared on reality TV, but Ducote has also released her first novel, Naked Paddock, which she's seen holding in Hollywood.com's exclusive photo. Inspired by her husband's life in motorsports — the professional driver has won several races in the American Les Mans — Ducote will release a trilogy of novels set in the racing world, providing readers with an inside look at the sport. Naked Paddock, which focuses on the relationship between a brainy doctor and a philadering driver, is currently available on her site. "When I first met my husband ... I knew nothing about racing," she says. "As I was tossed into the world of motorsports and started traveling to races with him all over the world, I was shocked. Fistfights, love affairs, lawsuits — the drama behind-the-scenes in the racing world is crazy! It was like stepping into an episode of Entourage — glamorous, but also hilarious and irreverent."
Can we expect a Kardashian trilogy next from Ducote, pictured above with her husband, right, and driver Kyle Marcelli, left? "They say truth is stranger than fiction, so who knows, maybe I will [write a book about reality TV]," Ducote says. "Chapman and I have some exciting plans in the works for more reality TV and guest appearances in the near future."

There's a lot to be said about Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy Scott Disick. He likes the color purple... a lot. He is overly flirtatious with the wrong people (Kourtney's sisters Kim and Khloe). And, he likes to kill animals. During Sunday night's episode of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Lord Disick, as he calls himself, decided to go on an alligator hunt. Rather than just go out to look at some of the animals in the beauty of nature, Disick shot and killed one. Later in the episode, he even skinned the dead gator. Well, people aren't responding too well to this murderous Kardashian scene.
"It takes a small man to kill an animal for fun," PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) tells Hollywood.com. "Although exotic animals are mostly unfamiliar to many people, the pain that they endure is real. With their slow metabolism, it can take hours for an alligator's heart to stop beating as they suffer and slowly die. Kind people understand that these intelligent, interesting animals—who fiercely protect their eggs and babies until their hatchlings are 3 years old—deserve to live unmolested with their families, rather than being hunted down in their homes and killed for a cheap human thrill. Animals deserve better from us, and our children deserve more compassionate, thoughtful role models."

While the Kardashian's rep and E! have yet to comment about the graphic scenes, Tori Spelling has taken to Twitter to share her thoughts on last night's episode. "Any1 else upset by 2nite ep of K&K Take Miami?" she wrote. "Taking alligators life on camera as a storyline&making a mockery of it sent me over the edge."
All of this so Disick could add to his collection of nonsensical shoes? People, what do you think about Disick's murderous stunt?
On a side note, Vienna Girardi, former star of The Bachelor and ex-fiancee of one Jake Pavelka, went on the hunt with Disick — but that's another story on its own.

E!'s televised deterioration of civilization, better known as Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, kicked off its third season last night and all that soul-crushing scripted drama you've known about for months was there to behold. Kim Kardashian's doomed cat Mercy! Khloe Kardashian's fertility woes! Kourtney Kardashian was there! Help me!
With the Kardashian sisters and the various Kardashian significant others and spawns in tow, they are taking Miami and the deteriorating fabric of human decency by storm! But that's not the only thing that humble, socially conscious, necessary Kardashian clan took in the Season 3 premiere.
Nope, the 10 other things the Kardashians also took...
Phone Calls From Kanye West: He said 'I love you!' This one might be serious, everyone. Pot Shots At Kris Humphries: The gals not only poo-poohed the outrageous notion that Kim married Kris for the publicity, but Khloe made sure to make fun of her ex-brother-in-law's a plenty, from his name ("The Humpty Dump") and general disposition. ("[He] barks for most of his words.") They even compared him to Kanye, saying that Kim's new man is "better than Humphries." Of course, Kim won't let anyone take pot shots at her. During a confessional, she told those critical jokesters that laugh about the length of her marriage to Humphries that — HAHAHA the joke is on us — she's actually been married for a year-and-a-half and that's not short at all!
Foreshadowing: "I can't believe Kanye surprised me with the cutest little baby ever!" cried Kim. Now, she was of course referring to the kitten that her rapper beau surprised her with, but there was a bevy of soundbites just like that all alluding to Kim's future pregnancy. "I cannot wait for you to have a baby to see what it's like," Kourtney told her sister Kim, who could barely clean up after or keep tabs on her current "baby," Mercy the cat, which she lost in the span of the first 45 minutes. Have mercy on Kimye's baby.
Irony: Kim cried repeatedly throughout the episode that not only did she not like drama, but she hated that anyone would talk or scheme behind her back. Mind you, this happened mere moments after she summoned Scott Disick to join them in Miami despite her sister's wishes and his worries that he would fall off the wagon in Miami. Kim and Kourtney then proceeded to throw the hard-partying lifestyle right in Scott's face and distracted him from the one reason he was supposed to be down there, his family. Sorry, did I say irony? I meant being generally terrible.
Jekyll & Hyde: In the span of just an hour, Scott Disick transformed from scruffy, marginally likable family man to a Royce-driving Patrick Bateman-inspired nightmare douche who refers to himself as Lord Disick.
Real Estate: Their DASH store location was unkempt and too small, so they cleaned it and now they are moving it to a new location. You can finally sleep again.
Liberties With The English Language: "How could anything sell when the racks are this claustrophobic?" (Oooh, so close. I believe the word you were looking for was cluttered.) "Kourtney thinks I'm uncapable of taking care of a pet." (Kim fail English? That's unpossible!)
Shots Of People's Butts On Miami Beach: Butts everywhere!
PETA: PETA no doubt loved watching Kim mishandle her white Persian cat, snip at it with scissors, let a young child be its primary caretaker, take it out while she was drunk, and lose it within hours of ownership.
YOLO: Those Kardashians sure love their YOLO'ing. Their YOLO pants, their YOLO hats, their general YOLO attitude. (Poor Mercy.)

The socialite and her sister Kourtney have been filming their latest reality series, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, in the Sunshine State and they were given a special welcome by Mayor Andre Pierre on Monday (19Nov12) as he presented them with the accolade.
Khloe was also recognised at the event, but she was forced to skip the presentation to catch a flight back to Los Angeles to film her hosting gig on The X Factor.
Introducing the siblings, Mayor Pierre told the crowd at the North Miami council hall, "What can you say about the Kardashians that we don't already know? Three of the hardest working people in the business: Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney... we are honoured by your presence...
"This key symbolises the freedom of the recipient - you, Kourtney and Kim - to enter the city at will."
Taking to the podium to accept the key to the city, Kim said, "We're so excited to be here, everyone in North Miami, and all of Miami, have (sic) been so welcoming to us and so great to us, and have made it so easy for us to film...
"We are just so excited that everyone has welcomed us with open arms. We are just so excited to be here, and this is such an honour, so thank you so much."
The members of the Kardashian family put their lives on hold so they could make sure Kim makes a full recovery from her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries. But it looks like Kourtney has to put her responsibility to Kim on hold for a while because she just announced that she and her longtime boyfriend, Scott Disick, are expecting their second child together.
Kourtney confirmed the news to Us Weekly, and explained how she took a pregnancy test five weeks ago and once she saw it was positive, she woke up Scott at 7 A.M to tell him they were expanding. And now that her immediate family knows, Kourtney couldn't wait to share the news with everyone in the country, saying "Now I'm nine weeks along. You're supposed to wait until 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident." She also said while she and Scott weren't actively trying to have another child, their mindset was more like, "We just kind of said, 'if it's meant to be, it's meant to be.'"
The cover of the tabloid (which will be on stands Friday) has a blurb on it that says, "How she & Scott went from separate bedrooms to expecting baby No. 2 -- and why she still won't marry him." But previous seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians (and Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami) showed Kourtney and Scott frequently arguing over Scott's drinking, and his habit of lying to her about how much liquor he's actually consumed. There was even an incident where Kourtney and Scott had an argument and Scott was so angry he punched a mirror, severely cutting his hand in such a way it required surgery. So there's definitely still tension in their relationship, and that's probably why Kourtney is holding out on marrying him. But who knows? Maybe two babies in studded loafers will convince Scott he doesn't need to get wasted to enjoy himself.

Now that she's' sufficiently taken Miami, Kourtney Kardashian enlisted her sister Kim to help her continue expanding the Kardashian reign so that her son Mason doesn't have to go to school, but rather, it will come to him. Yes, you're reading my morse code correctly! Kim and Kourtney have a new show on E! coming out, and it's called Kourtney and Kim Take New York! (Khloe is busy continuing to take her Laker.)
Premiering this January, the show will revolve around Kourtney and Khloe's efforts to start a DASH store in NYC, and of course, complete the extremely challenging task of finding someone for Kim to date so she doesn't spend all her time contemplating the whiteness of her living room carpet. Just like when Kourtney and Khloé took Miami, we're bound to get visits from organic Viagra supplier and mother Kris, Mason's second tier father Scott and of course, Khloé herself...that is, if the Lakers aren't doing anything and if Kourtney promises not to wax Khloé's bikini off her bikini.
So New Yorkers! Be on the lookout for some Kardashians. If you don't see them walking on the street (oh, you'll know when), once you hear about the location for the new DASH store, jet on over to it. They'll be glad to walk right past you.
D.J. Goodson alleges he was forced to watch the show, as well as Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, while serving time in Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.
He claims Kourtney, Kim and Khloe made him develop "extreme emotional distress due to their outrageousness of actions", according to papers obtained by TMZ.com.
Goodson is demanding $75,000 (£50,000) in damages.
The socialite is tired of being the focus of internet gossip and has criticised her "haters" on her own blog.
But the star insists those who discuss her on forums are actually doing her a favour - because they boost ratings of her TV shows Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami.
In a post on her website, she writes, "I am a little confused as to why people who 'hate' me so much follow my every move and know every last thing about me (whether it's fact or fiction). It's funny to me how these so called 'haters' can sit behind a computer screen and all of a sudden have courage.
"I most likely have seen many of you in person before and you have never said these things to my face. This is because you are a coward. You don't have the guts. You are the ones that when we come face to face can only stutter compliments. Thank you for the ratings you give me on BOTH of my TV shows because based on the comments you leave on my page, it's clear that you watch. So thank you to my haters! You truly are making me better. God bless. I hope you are proud of yourself. I am proud of you!"
S2:E10 I know each and every one of you are going to mourn last night's season finale to Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami more than you did your last relationship. Do you know how I know that? Because the nicest thing your ex ever did for you was put pennies in your loafers, which wasn't even very nice because they bought you loafers even though they knew your bunion operation wasn't for another four months. Kourtney and Khloé have done WAY more for you than that, like remind you that for ever five people, one of them will poop in a dressing room at some point in their life. They've educated you...nay, educated us all. We owe them our gratitude.
Last night's episode started with watching Kourtney and Scott in couple's counseling, where they're trying to fix something that even the frozen chocolate bunnies from Easter in our freezers know isn't fixable. There was lots of "he said, she said," and Scott wore pants that not even a crossing guard in a European country would wear. Kourtney said she wanted to be supportive of Scott, but she doesn't want to be an enabler, or let him drink simply because he "works" at clubs. Scott kept interrupting her and told the shrink how unfortunate it was that Kourtney was so perfect. He admitted that he had a problem with alcohol and he'd rather be with her and his baby, but he felt Kourtney didn't understand how alcoholism is a disease.
After therapy, Kourtney went back to the suite to start packing for her trip back to Los Angeles. Scott called and asked her if she'd like to come over and talk about what the shrink said, which wasn't much of anything and he should really consider taking insurance if he has that little to say about anything. Kourtney made a list of a few things she said had to change if they were going to make it work, and as she was reading them to him, Scott was using his BlackBerry for something like ordering a pair of apologetic argyle socks for the cat whose kittens he killed when he ran over them while pulling into an alleyway to pee on an abandoned Lexus. Kourtney kicked and screamed about how much she didn't have to be there trying to work things out with him, and she left. Scott felt a little bit bad about not listening to her, but not too much.
Kourtney went back to her hotel suite so she could pack up all her things before she and Khloé returned to Los Angeles. The more I watched them pack, the more I saw all the things the two of them were leaving behind. Kourtney and Khloé probably paid the hotel to ship what they didn't take with them to Los Angeles after they'd left. But as a girl who went to a sleep away camp where you basically wouldn't be invited back the following summer if you left so much as a baby tooth there, it was painful for me to watch the sisters abandon racks of clothes in the hotel.
Khloé, of course, had already packed everything and was rearing to go back to Los Angeles and be with her husband. While she watched Kourtney do a packing job as insignificant as an out-patient procedure, Scott called and asked if he could come over to talk about things one last time, but Kourtney said their car was coming to pick them up in an hour and if he wanted to come talk to her while she non-packed, that was fine. Scott raced over to the hotel, hoping to convince her to stay in Miami with him and Mason instead of going back to Los Angeles, and after saying she was the best thing that ever happened to him because he forgot to Wikipedia a better compliment, Kourtney took Mason and left the hotel. Scott "wept," but it's more likely he just rubbed the puss from his stitched up hand onto his eyes to make it look like he was sad, and then he clutched a little forlorn and slightly racist baby moccasin.
That was it! That was the season finale! It'd be nice if we really knew Scott and Kourtney broke up, but since they keep talking to the tabloids about how happy and sober they are, we can only hope they finally end things for good when Keeping Up With The Kardashians starts. Khloé's taken a serious backseat to all this Scott crap, which is really sad, because I was so much more interested in her waxing woes than I am in Scott's profound fondness for dressing like he's on a 365-day Easter egg hunt sponsored by Town & Country. But since Ryan Seacrest is controlling the entire world right now (including each major city's traffic lights), Scott's involvement with the Kardashian family probably isn't going anywhere soon.
S2:E9 This episode, Khloé returned to Miami to help Kourtney take care of Mason and deal with Scott’s efforts to throw a pity party for himself after punching a mirror and not being able to see his son. Also, Kris, Kendall and Kylie visited the girls, and Kris was quite worried about Kourtney’s situation with Scott.
The second she arrived in Miami, Kris asked Kourtney how she was going to make Scott resolve his tendencies towards drinking and violence. Kourtney maintained she hadn’t seen Scott since he punched their bathroom mirror (which, for all we know, could be just shy of a few days because we’re on Ryan Seacrest time), and that in the space she put between them, Scott was getting sober and seeing a therapist. Kris wanted him to do more, so she figured it would be best for her to go over to Scott’s hotel and tell him to stop meddling with her family and to go get some help in another city. Nobody would tell Kris which hotel Scott was staying at except for Khloé, whose wedding ring is so huge that it must have tilted her entire body, including her brain, lips and tongue, to the left and has made her likely to blab about the whereabouts of alcoholics everywhere.
While Kris was getting together her ammo, we took a peek inside one of Scott’s therapy sessions. It was a lot of how he felt bad for drinking and getting so out of control, but it was also heavy on how frustrated he was that he wasn’t able to manipulate Kourtney into letting him see his son. Even though he was admitting his faults and regrets, Scott came across as an even more unlikeable character than the one who couldn’t get a grip on reality and shattered a mirror when his baby was in the next room. He kept talking to his therapist about how much stuff he had to deal with, which indubitably was a reference to his life-changing work with vitamins, club-hopping and the painful decision of how big to make the triangle cups of the go-go girls’ string bikinis. Can you imagine all that? On top of not being able to see his son, recuperating from MAJOR surgery on the tendons in his hands that will ultimately stop working if he has to continue “satisfying” himself due to Kourtney’s absence…he can’t even pretend to burp his son while he BBM’s his night’s itinerary to his friends! Horror.
Then, Kris went over to Scott’s house and urged him to seek treatment for his vices in another city. She presented him with a few papers of facilities she thought could help him, but Scott disposed of them out the window when she left, which was a reminder to us at home that paper shredders and garbage cans and keeping the ponds and oceans clean for ducks and jellyfish is for losers who have working tendons.
While Kourtney was busy keeping Mason away from Scott and while Kris was busy schooling Scott on his rehabilitation options, Khloé was given the task of firing an employee who was suspected of shoplifting at DASH. Khloé was quite nervous to do it, even though she’s the Kardashian who judges drag queen contests. She somehow suited up and told the girl she sucked at retail and that she was fired, but that there were no hard feelings. Nobody threatened suicide or elaborated on how they were going to put a dead baby in a suitcase and leave it on a bus for all to see, so by all accounts it was a successful termination.
When Kourtney found out Kris had been to Scott’s hotel, she was furious. She yelled at her mother for interfering with her personal life, and Khloé pointed out if Kris kept up the act, she would drive Kourtney right back into the abusive relationship. Kris realized Khloé was right, and after she apologized to Kourtney, packed up her bags and went back to Los Angeles.
Next week is the last episode! Will Kourtney and Scott resolve their issues or will Kourtney finally use her brain that’s more developed than her other sisters’ and cut her losses? I think that’s what we all hope for, and truthfully, Scott won’t probably won't notice. He has ascots to tie.
