Last night's episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York focused on some events we saw play out months ago in real life, because these girls are celebrities and all.

Kim taking it all off for W Magazine (and feigning horror and how nude she looked in the final issue) and Scott Disick's nightclub fight were both shown last night.

Our staff member reviews all the action on both fronts here:

We're all in agreement that Kourtney & Kim Take New York is just as scripted as the other Kardashian reality shows, but does that keep us from watching?

Certainly not. In fact, last night's episode was reason enough to tune in for a few "realistic" reasons: the Kim Kardashian naked spread in November's W Magazine and the infamous club fight that transpired in October.

The producers happily burned whatever weaksauce script they had come up with, and instead captured the very essence of Kardashian drama.

We read about the details surrounding the night Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Scott were out at a club when a male fan asked Kim for a picture.

Things got out of hand when the fan's girlfriend accused Kim of hitting on her boyfriend. Though Kim did her best to convince the woman she wasn't trying to hit on her boyfriend, the woman continued to antagonize Kim. 

Then Scott came to Kim's defense and attempted to break up the argument.

Alanis Morissette had it wrong. Rain on your wedding day isn't ironic. Neither are 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife.

Instead, Kim Kardashian found time this week to provide the best definition yet of this term: acting ashamed of a sex tape during a nationally-televised interview, despite the fact that said interview would NEVER have taken place if not for this sex tape.

Such was the case on Piers Morgan Tonight, as the host asked Kim about her videotaped banging of Ray J.

"There's embarrassment and shame and so much that comes along with it," Kardashian said, simultaneously counting the giant wads of money bank-rolled from the tape in her head.

How did she ever get through the incident that made her famous?

While the world's collective jaw remains dropped at how much Kim Kardashian spent on a watch recently, the reality star defended herself to Piers Morgan this week by saying she gives 10% of all earnings away.

"There's a charity that I work with a lot, The Dream Foundation, and my mom has helped create a church [in Calabasas], so we help fund that," she says.

Of course, Kim didn't shut up after that, going on to make an asinine statement about what life is like as a mega rich person: "I get [what they mean] when they say more money, more problems. I definitely get that, but we have a great team of people that help us manage everything."

Note to Kim: Absolutely no one says that. It was a lyric in a Notorious B.I.G. song. Your biggest problem each day is deciding which company to shill for on Facebook.

In the clip below, meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian is placed on the spot when asked what she'd say tomorrow if Scott Disick proposed:

For all the talk about how little talent Kim Kardashian possesses and how unqualified she is to speak about teen pregnancy, there are two aspects about this socialite that often go unnoticed:

  1. She has less personality than a department store mannequin.
  2. She is grossly out of touch with society.

Both of these traits were on display in an interview with Piers Morgan this week. Kim and Kourtney Kardashian taped their appearance with the talk show host today and one nugget of information from it stands apart from the rest.

Guess how much Kim says she paid for a single wristwatch. Come on, just try to surmise the amount that even Kourtney refers to as "vulgar." Then, watch the clip below, see if you were close - and also try to stay awake. Seriously, Kim is simply boring...

The series premiere of Kourtney & Kim Take New York proved that the Apocalypse is upon us set a ratings record for this franchise, garnering three million viewers in its original 10 p.m. time slot.

That's nearly twice as many as tuned in for this week's episode of Gossip Girl.

The above figure represents an increase of 400,000 viewers from the second season premiere of Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami last June and it has to make you think: if this many people follow Kim Kardashian on a weekly basis, she might as well say something worthwhile to them occasionally, right?

Below, in a scene 100% unscripted and totally natural, Kanye West pays Kim and Kourtney a visit:

Just a few hours ago, THG debated whether Kim Kardashian should give advice on teen pregnancy, in light of her recent remarks on MTV's Teen Mom.

This celebrity gossip writer argued that Kim's comments were uncalled for, given the reasons behind her fame, and it was not her place to weigh in.

Farrah Abraham appears to agree.

Still Single

It looks like Kim's Teen Mom tirade may have gotten a bit too preachy for one of its cast members, who responded to K-squared's criticism on Twitter.

Last week, Kim took to her blog to speak out against teen pregnancy and included MTV’s Teen Mom in the missive, saying it fosters a troubling trend.

“It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls,” was one choice Kim excerpt.

“These kids are all over the news, even covers of magazines, and have almost become celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!”

Farrah Abraham takes issue with Kim, to say the least.

THG Asks!

Welcome to THG's new feature, in which two of our celebrity gossip experts debate topical issues in the entertainment world and you decide who wrote the winning argument!

Today, THG Asks: Should Kim Kardashian give advice on teen pregnancy?

YES by Hilton Hater

Let me be clear: by no stretch of any imagination should Kim Kardashian be a role model.

She is famous solely because she made a sex tape, hired a good publicist and is willing to attach her name to any product on the market.

But these facts don't change another fact: she IS a role model. She has close to four million Facebook fans, six million Twitter followers.

For reasons that defy comprehension, people - many of whom are teenage women - care about what Kim says, thinks and does.

So instead of finding another reason to bash her, why not applaud Kim for actually using her pedestal for an important cause? Yes, she got there by having filmed intercourse with Ray J. But she didn't get pregnant as a result, did she?

See. She talks the talk and has walked the walk.


NO by Free Britney 

Look at the photo above. This is who's opining on social issues of our time.

This isn't to say that Kim Kardashian is a bad person, or that she can't have opinions on serious subjects. But she needs to know her role and shut her yap too.

Kim's missive about Teen Mom glorifying pregnancy is laughable. Not because of the MTV show's content, but because of the reasons you know who Kim is.

Kim loves her kurves. Kim endorses QuikTrim! Kim shows kleavage on Twitter! Kim shills for new show! Kim dates half the NFL! Kim endorses bogus kredit kard!

She accuses Teen Mom of making celebrities out of its cast, an odd message from a girl who got famous from a sex tape and flaunts her sexuality on a daily basis.

The ultimate product of the same celebrity-obsessed culture she derides, Kim has milked it for a fortune, has zero credibility and is in no position to judge.

THG Asks you ... should Kim be giving advice? Who won this argument?

New city. Same contrived nonsense.

Sunday's premiere of Kourtney & Kim Take New York on E! marked yet another reality series for this infamous family, a crew for which fame and living their scripted lives on camera has become synonymous with breathing.

Who are we kidding, we love it. And had a staff member review it here:

Kourtney & Kim Take New York premiered last night, and I enjoyed it. I would enjoy it more were the duo Kourtney and Khloe, but we'll see where the season goes.

I confess, I'm entertained by the Kardashians.

Sure, dollar signs blur their vision more often than not, but the family makes me laugh. Kris reminds me of my mother (don't tell her I said that), and Kim, Kourtney and Khloe remind me of my sisters and I (minus the great wardrobe and disposable income).

Don't lie - you and your sisters play "Which Kardashian Sister Are You" and fight over who is who. I find Khloe and Kourtney's relationship to be thoroughly amusing, and I find Kim to be a bit boring. Ergo I'm nervous about how the two older sibs will fare together in New York.

We can forgive Kanye West for interrupting Taylor Swift and trash talking Britney. But this is inexcusable.

Kim Kardashian says that West is responsible for convincing her to torture the public with her "singing" voice, telling MTV:

"Kanye was actually one of the people who really talked me into doing it and telling me, like, 'Hey, look, what do you guys do for fun? You guys go shopping, you go to the movies. Kind of step into our world for a second and have fun, and we go to the studio.'"

The nightmare heard above was produced by The-Dream, but Kim says Kanye plays a key role in her life:

"He's someone we look up to and... someone that we've always just taken advice from."

How will that translate into the music video for the single Kardashian performed on New Year's Eve? Unfortunately, we'll soon find out.

Kim Kardashian sides with Free Britney.

In a recent edition of THG Asks, one of our columnists argued that Teen Mom glorifies teen pregnancy. Now, in response to a report that 90 - yes, 90! - girls from a Memphis high school are knocked up or have given birth this year, Kim has blogged the following:

Ruined By Teen Mom

It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls. The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have been become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!

When I think back to when I was 16, there is no way I would even have considered having a baby. That thought wouldn’t even have entered my head. Having a baby is one one of the biggest, and most life-changing decisions a person can make and while I’m not saying that no teen is in the position to raise a child, having a baby so young shouldn’t be seen as the trendy thing to do.

We couldn't agree with Kim more. Amber Portwood, on the other hand?
