Reality TV made Kayne West’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian and her family famous, so now Kanye is hoping it will do the same for his current “wife” Bianca Censori. According to a source, Kayne is hellbent on turning Bianca into the next Kim, and his ultimate goal is to make her even MORE famous than his ex-wife. A sex tape is out of the question (Kim’s was released pre-Kayne and he never approved) but a reality show is definitely on the table. Kayne has assembled a group of producers who are working on a pilot featuring Bianca and he’s planning to make appearances on it as well. Ironically or not, he’s hoping to strike a deal with E!, the network where the Kardashians first found fame.
He seems to be Hollywood’s rebound boyfriend, but now Pete Davidson is hoping turn his latest romance with actress Chase Sui Wonders into something permanent. According to a friend of the former SNL star, Pete now believes his last romances didn’t work since his exes were either much richer, more famous or both. Despite his success, he was usually the plusone to the likes of Ariana Grande or Kim Kardashian. Things are different with Chase since Pete is the one with more star power. They met last year when they filmed the horror movie Bodies, Bodies, Bodies. (Chase is quite a catch- she happens to have graduated from Harvard with honors) Pete is confiding to pals that she’s the one. He’s been quietly looking at engagement rings and seems ready to pop the question sometime this year.
Not for ONE tiny minute do we believe Colton Underwood couldn’t admit he was gay until he appeared on The Bachelor. Ridiculous! The 29 year old handsome football player was actually very interested in the FAME and MONEY he got from appearing on Bachelor shows for three seasons! He advertised himself as “The Virgin Bachelor,” after all. We WERE concerned when the woman he chose, Cassie Randolph, got a restraining order against him. (What was THAT about?) Today he “came out” to Robin Roberts, trying to make it seem like he was struggling with his sexuality UNTIL he appeared on The Bachelor, and the show helped him “decide” he was gay. Baloney. What helped him come out was the fat paycheck Netflix is now giving him to film his new gay identity series – that he HAPPENS to be promoting now. Colton did not “accidentally” deceive all those women and he’s not the hero he wants YOU to think he is.

If he were still alive, designer Halston would be THRILLED by the fact that handsome Ewan McGregor is playing him in the 5 episode Netflix biography Simply Halston. The production just started up again in New York after Covid issues and it’s a fascinating story. Young Halston was a hatmaker in 1961 when he made the pink hat Jackie Kennedy wore at her husband’s inauguration. When the 60’s started to loosen up, hats went OUT, and Halston started designing clothes- offering us a peek into the fashion world at that time. By the 70’s, he was a huge success and adored by celebrities such as Liza Minnelli, Liz Taylor, Lauren Bacall and Bianca Jagger, with plenty of partying at Studio 54. Halston’s life story is described as “a cautionary tale of fame, drugs, and sex” so you know there’s a lesson to be learned…
He is clearly having fun with his sudden notoriety, and Machine Gun Kelly is making the most of it. He ENJOYS having paparazzi follow him, including last night at Saddle Ranch on Sunset. Kelly was showing off for photographers, bopping to loud music in the car, and hanging out the window when he got carried away and broke his friend’s windshield!
Not long ago, Al Pacino used to walk freely around Beverly Hills and have lunch wherever he liked. Occasionally a fan would see him and ask for a selfie or autograph, but it wasn’t bothersome. It so happens, he’s HOT again. Nowadays when word gets out that Al is in some restaurant, (E Baldi today) word spreads like wildfire and there’s a noisy and demanding crowd waiting when he walks out. Alas, the high price of success…
Actually, the budding friendship of Kourtney Kardashian and Grown-ish actor Luka Sabbat is a match in PUBLICITY heaven. (Luka was also a Yeezy model.) Kourtney loves being photographed with handsome young men and Luka just plain wants to become famous. Everybody knows that the best (and maybe easiest) way to become famous FAST is to date a Kardashian! And a 19 years OLDER woman is even better! Luka is a young fashion influencer who really wants to be noticed, so he and Kourtney turned up at the Virgil Abloh fashion party at the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills.

Emmy winning Fame choreographer Debbie Allen was honored as Woman of the Year at the Nevada Ballet Theater Gala this weekend and she showed up looking like THIS at the social event of the year! Did Debbie think that because she’s in Las Vegas she should dress like Holly Madison? These necklines cut down to the waist are not flattering and certainly in questionable taste. Burn this dress, Debbie.
Shia LaBeouf proved to himself that he still has plenty of fans with that “art” stunt last weekend. He commandeered a small art gallery on Beverly Blvd and received visitors with a bag on his head emphasizing his dislike of being “famous.” We drove by several times and there were always at least a hundred people in line around the block to see him, and a burly bodyguard at the door keeping order. We can’t help thinking he’s following the lead of Joaquin Phoenix who tried to convince us that he dropped out of the movie business to become a rapper with an aversion to bathing. He ditched the idea as soon as a good movie offer came along and we think Shia will too.
Where did we go wrong? Swimmer Ryan Lochte, winner of five gold Olympic medals, has admitted he dreams of becoming as successful as Kim >Kardashian! (Is Kris Jenner already dialing his number?) Lochte just got his own reality show on E! called “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?“ and he’s beside himself with excitement. Ryan is especially impressed with Kim because she “started from pretty much nothing and now everyone, everywhere, knows who she is.” Amazing. This hugely successful and disciplined athlete ENVIES Kim Kardashian! Viewers will tune into Ryan’s show just to see if he’s in his right mind.
