As if being a reality TV star and manager to a family of moguls wasn’t enough, Kris explained to Us Weekly that it’s always been a dream of hers to have her own talk show.
“So many women give up in life when they get a little bit older,” she said. “I want to be a positive influence. I want to come from a really good place. Some people are just lost, and maybe I can be an inspiration.”
The new talk show, which airs July 15th, will have celebrity interviews and focus on fashion, beauty, and fitness. I think seeing Kris Jenner and her family on E! is enough for me, so I won’t be tuning into this one.

Bloomberg Businessweek launched a campaign directed at millennials that is getting a lot of backlash from their target audience. The basics of the program: parents send your new grad an e-card telling them “it’s annoying you moved back home, you need to get your act together and move out” along with free issues of the magazine to help them get on track in the real world.
The campaigns attempt to use social media in a comical way misses the mark. The average parent understands that recent graduates are facing tougher times with limited employment, large education debt and a challenging economy. No recent grad wants to move home, but some are left with no choice. Thanks for the free magazines but if college degrees don’t get kids a jobs, reading an article probably won’t either.
Oregon-based Rogue Brewing Co. is releasing “Beard Beer,” a limited-release ale fermented with yeast obtained from a brewmasters’ facial hair. I’m guessing it tastes like chainsaws and masculinity, with a hint of sweet, sweet glory.
Yup, you heard me… PRANCERSING!!! The latest fitness craze to hit the interwebs is here. Explained as: A springy, rhythmic way of moving forward,similar to a horse’s gait and ideally induced by elation.
I think the world would be a much better place if everyone galloped and pranced around all day to get to their destinations. So, get a pair of ankle weights and get to it. You can even buy prancersie creator Joanna Rohrback’s book to learn more about this wonderful fitness regimin. Enjoy!
When you hear the name Amanda Bynes, most of us think of Nickelodeon’s All That. Up until recently though, she has been the talk of the tabloids for her recent drug arrest and an even more recent twitter rant about being harassed by the police. That’s also not inclusive of her multiple hit-and-run charges, and her DUI arrest in 2012. Don’t all of these felonies remind you of another famous actress-turned-rebel? Yep, Lindsay Lohan, who has a worse track record than Amanda Bynes… but Amanda is catching up. She’s even trying to look like Lindsay too! But Amanda is taking things to the extreme with her outrageous tweets – everything from calling Jenny McCarthy “ugly” to announcing she was becoming a rapper. She even went so far as to tweet a plea to President Obama demanding the cop who arrested her for drunk driving be fired. Let’s just say it’s very sad to watch her spiral downward like this after such a successful career as a teenager. She was so funny in She’s the Man (girls – I’m sure you agree!). Very tragic. Hoping Amanda gets her act together soon and somehow redeems herself from all of her wrong doings.
