Hiya, Brandeis! The world of celebrity clearly didn’t get the memo that we were on break—this past month was full of juicy celeb news that I can’t wait to share! Beginning with, most annoyingly, least importantly, yet incredibly interestingly: the Kimye baby!
On Dec. 30, poppa-to-be, Kanye West, revealed the big news—the timing of which was unbeknownst to his “baby momma,” Kim Kardashian. During a concert at Atlantic City’s Revel Resort, the singer decided to unexpectedly spill the beans to the crowd of 5,000 and, consequently, the entire pop culture universe.
The reality-prone Kardashian clan didn’t take long to jump on the excitement bandwagon, taking to Twitter to express their excitement over the possibility of another K-named baby to add to the fam.
So all is well in Kardashian-land, right?
Sure, Kimye (literally one of the worst celeb pair names ever created) is more in love than
The pair, both 32-years-old, has been friends for years but decided in April to turn their platonic relationship into a romantic one and “see where it goes” (hint: a baby).
But the fairy tale can’t continue thanks to a Kris Humphries, the 27-year-old New Jersey Nets player who was the former Mr. Kardashian for a whopping 72 days.
Despite Kim filing for divorce in October of 2011, the proceedings are still ongoing, making it impossible for the parents-to-be to move forward with any official family plans (read: extravagant wedding part two).
While Kim and Kris’ divorce is moving at the pace of a snail, the winter slammed us with a fast-paced breakup.
I’m referring to the upsetting, rumor-confirming news that Real Housewives of New York-star Bethenny Frankel and husband Jason Hoppy were splitting.
Since starring on the Bravo show in 2008, Frankel immediately won fans over with her loud, sarcastic, brazen personality and earned sympathy from viewers who wanted the unlucky-in-love natural foods chef to finally settle down.
So there was double celebration when Frankel and Hoppy got married in March of 2010—and then welcomed daughter Bryn two months later!
But the hot-headed Frankel and quiet Hoppy butted heads, as seen on their reality show Bethenny Ever After (how many marriages have to crumble before people realize that reality shows are a surefire way to ruin a relationship?).
Some say her entrepreneurial success threatened his masculinity, while others claim her troubled upbringing made it difficult to accept Hoppy’s happy family relations.
Either way, the pair announced their separation in December and—BAM!—in early January, Frankel filed for divorce.
Now rumors are swirling as to which former spouse will come out on top, aka who will benefit most from the multi-million-dollar Skinnygirl empire that Frankel created.
In an unfair world where Kim Kardashian becomes pregnant before sister Khloe and Bethenny’s love life ends in shambles, who knows what next week will bring.
