'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Renewed For 3 More Seasons

Keeping Up With Kardashians Renewed
'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' renewed for 3 more seasons.

NEW YORK -- The Kardashian family will continue living life on TV for the next three years.
The E! Entertainment network said Tuesday it had reached a deal with its most bankable franchise to make three more seasons of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." TMZ reports the family will be paid over $40 million for the 3 seasons, making the deal the richest contract in reality TV history.
The sixth season of the show averaged 3 million viewers on Sunday nights, the cable networks' top series. Five of the 10 most-watched shows in the network's history, in fact, involved the Kardashians. The 18-episode seventh season begins on May 20.
E! said the entire family is covered by the deal: Kim, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian Odom, and Bruce, Kris, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. E! will continue to have the first crack at any spinoff projects.
E! has turned the Kardashians into a mini-empire, with spinoff series like "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" and "Khloe and Lamar." Although E! retains the first right to these spinoffs, Tuesday's deal does not specify how many more will be made.
The network would also not say whether musician Kanye West would be included in the series. West and Kim Kardashian have been seen together lately amid reports that they are a new couple.
Kim's elaborate wedding - and brief marriage to - basketball player Kris Humphries was a highlight of E!'s programming last fall. The network had to put out a statement denying rumors that the wedding was orchestrated for TV.

'Bachelor' Ben And Courtney: Star Tries On Wedding Dress (PHOTOS)

Publicity stunt or for real? That's the question that came to mind when we saw "The Bachelor" star Courtney Robertson donning a wedding dress in these photos. Robertson, 28, publicly copped to trying on gowns to distract the press from gossiping about "Bachelor" beau Ben Flajnik, 29, on the after-show special.

Post the March 12 season finale, the model has been frequently photographed with Flajnik in his native San Francisco. The most controversial couple ever(!) are doing the normal coupley things one expects two people who hardly know each other to be doing: eating, drinking and displaying lavish amounts of public affection.
Just one hitch: They're already engaged. "We're taking it slow," Flajnik told People magazine on March 30. "We haven't decided on a date when she's going to move up to San Francisco yet, so she's got a lot of trips planned. It's nice to get away from the noise and spend time with each other."

Amanda Bynes DUI: Is She The Next Lindsay Lohan?

Amanda Bynes Lindsay Lohan

Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan have a lot in common -- both are formerly successful child-turned-teen stars whose careers fizzled as they hit adulthood.
Now with Bynes' recent DUI, the similarities between the two actresses are even more apparent, but RadarOnline reports the "What I Like About You" star is telling friends she shouldn't be compared to Lohan, who has a long history of trouble with the law.
Bynes was arrested on April 6 after she sideswiped a police car. Sources told People magazine the 26-year-old actress had been drinking at the Standard Hotel, but "seemed fine to drive," and "never seemed drunk."
"Amanda thinks it's extremely unfair that people are calling her the new Lindsay Lohan," a source close to the actress told RadarOnline. "Comparisons between the two are just ridiculous as Amanda has never been arrested for drug possession or for stealing anything. Yes, she got arrested for a DUI, but that doesn't mean she is headed down the same road as Lindsay."
According to the source, Bynes doesn't know Lohan, nor does she harbor any negative feelings toward her, but she doesn't want to be lumped in with her either. "She just thinks it's sexist that the two are being compared. Men in Hollywood that get arrested for DUI's don't face the same scrutiny that women do and that is what really irks Amanda," said the insider. "She isn't taking the DUI arrest lightly."
It's absolutely true that men in Hollywood aren't subject to the same scrutiny, but it doesn't change the fact that Bynes has been acting irrationally for years and friends are reportedly worried about her. A source told the New York Post, "Amanda's friends are growing increasingly concerned about her and want her to go to rehab. She has been avised to stay home, but she refused."
The actress, who got her start on Nickelodeon's "All That" in 1996, had everyone buzzing about her strange tweets in 2010, when she announced her retirement from acting at the age of 24. In the following months, Bynes began to tweet racy photos and professed her preference for "chocolate men."
In June 2011, Bynes explained her strange tweeting, telling People magazine that she simply needed some time off. "I've been acting since I was seven, and I'm 25 now. So, it's not retiring so much. It's just taking some time off."

Anne Hathaway Cuts Off Flowing Locks

Anne Hathaway has stunned fans after chopping off her long locks for her role in "Les Miserables."

The actress debuted her dramatic new haircut after stepping out for a night out in London, where she is filming the upcoming movie musical. Hathaway looked pale and gaunt as she attempted to hide her boyish hairdo from the cameras while ducking out of the Box Club in the Soho area of the British capital.

Hathaway has shorn her brunette locks into a close crop to play the part of doomed prostitute Fantine, who sells her hair and teeth to make money. A spokesperson was recently forced to deny reports “The Devil Wears Prada” star has been surviving on an extreme diet to lose weight for the film.

The rep said, "She is losing weight for the part, but not that much. Just enough for her to look more frail, as she is playing a dying prostitute. She is consuming more than 500 calories."

Queen Elizabeth II grants Camilla new honor

LONDON (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II has appointed the Duchess of Cornwall to the highest female rank in the Royal Victorian Order, Buckingham Palace said Monday.
The announcement that Camilla has been made a Dame Grand Cross comes on the day of her seventh wedding anniversary with Prince Charles, the queen's son.
Awards under the Royal Victorian Order, which was founded in 1896 by Queen Victoria, are given by the queen to people who have served her or the monarchy in a personal way. They are bestowed independently of the prime minister's office.
Once vilified as a the old flame who poisoned Charles' first marriage to Princess Diana, Camilla has become an integral member of the royal family since she married the prince on April 9, 2005 — eight years after Diana's death.
Since the couple's civil ceremony at the Guildhall in Windsor, the British public has warmed to Camilla and the 64-year-old has carried out hundreds of royal engagements and taken on a wide range of patronages.
She also has traveled extensively with the prince on official visits, including a recent tour of Scandinavia with stops in Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo.
Lately, Camilla was seen stepping out with the queen and the former Kate Middleton — who married Prince William — for an appearance in London.
Buckingham Palace said Camilla will be invested with the insignia of her rank at a later date.
