Welcome to the Smart Set. Every morning we bring you the gossip coverage, filtered. Today: Kris Jenner might have planned Kim Kardashian's sex tape, One Direction denied any fun in Vegas, and Prince William will soon be rich(er).
Creepy Kris Jenner, the mother of the coven of sirens known as the Kardashians, orchestrated the sex tape that made Kim Kardashian famous, according to messages on Kim's ex Kris Humphries' current girlfriend's phone, anyway. Phew. That's a lot of connections. But yeah, the point is that Kris — Kris Jenner, not Kris Humphries, can't one of you please spell Chris correctly? — allegedly not only told Kim to shoot the sex tape with Ray J (Brandy's brother) that launched her into the national spotlight, but had her do it over after the first one wasn't "pretty enough." If true, that is very sinister and creepy! Kris Jenner clearly wants to be famous like her daughters, but alas she's an old lady who looks like Morticia Addams after getting divorced and moving to San Diego. (House Hunters intro: "Newly divorced mom Morticia is looking in the San Diego area for the perfect dilapidated mansion to start this new phase of her life. But can she find the cobwebby castle she wants, or will San Diego's high real estate prices make her dreams go toes up?") So she makes (maybe!) her daughter do sex tapes instead. Sigh. Hopefully this story isn't true, but sadly we wouldn't have a hard time believing it. Meanwhile, Kris's husband Bruce Jenner has gotten his face stuck in the juicer again and is calling for help in vain. [TMZ]
Uh oh. The cheeky blokes of British pop invasion One Direction were tossed out of a bunch of Las Vegas casinos recently for trying to gamble and drink even though they're all underage. Bloody 'ell! They were also disappointed to learn that the suite they booked wasn't, as they'd been informed, the same suite used in the movie The Hangover. Yeah, that was actually filmed in Los Angeles, not Las Vegas, so better luck next time, lads. But oh! Ha! Judging by the photos of the suite, I'm pretty sure it's the same one that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stayed in, because it's the Palms and that's owned by the Maloofs and I remember there being a basketball court in the suite the girls stayed in. So, you hear that, Harry, Niall, Zayn, Louis, and Liam? You stayed where the Real Housewives stayed! Just what every teenage boy dreams of when he thinks of Las Vegas. Sorry you didn't get to drink, though. Better luck next time. [The Sun]
