Celebrity Slam - Mar. 7, 2012

Give and take

You may not remember, but Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were married for a little while. Then they got divorced soon afterward. However, unlike with most marriages, this divorce was only the beginning.

Kris Humphries has returned to the spotlight with his recent outrage about Kim's refusal to return the gifts they received from their wedding guests. Kim made a charitable donation (to the tune of $200,000 twice the value of the presents) instead of returning the gifts. It might seem a little weird that Kardashian is keeping them, but she's well within the parameters of proper etiquette. She was under no obligation to do anything, though the donation was a nice gesture.

While Humphries has said that he appreciates that Kardashian made the donation, he felt that the donation should have been made in addition to returning all the presents. He also made mention yet again that the guests were duped by Kim's 'fraud' with regards to the wedding.

Like sands through the hourglass

Where to begin? Let's start with the fact that all this donation stuff happened months ago. Are you really just now addressing it, Kris? Clearly it must have been bothering you if you spent the past three months formulating your response. That must be it, right? Or did you bring it up because you've been confronted with the fact that you're a mediocre basketball player and this is the only way you can get anyone to pay attention to you? It was nice being for-real famous for a few minutes, wasn't it Kris? Hard to let that go.

The best part of all is that one of Kardashian's friends is calling BS. He claims that he gave Humphries a $5000 gift card as a personal wedding gift and that Humphries refused to return it. So not only is he being a self-righteous d-bag about the whole thing, he's a hypocrite too!

That's not how ballers do it, buddy. Sit down on the bench and think about what you've done.

Southern-fried sexual harassment

Celebrity chef Paula Deen is in a bit of hot water thanks to a lawsuit brought by a former employee.

Lisa Jackson, who worked as the general manager of Bubba's Oyster and Seafood House (co-owned by Deen and her brother Bubba Hiers) in Savannah, Georgia from 2005-2010. She alleges that during the entirety of her employment there, she was subjected to all manner of inappropriate behaviors, including lots of racist and sexist comments. She is claiming sexual harassment and infliction of emotional distress.

Jackson claims that Hiers was constantly bringing pornography into the workplace, even going to XXX websites on work computers and never logging out, making porn a constant presence in Jackson's workday. He told her he wanted to replace the entire staff with 'Hooters girls' and complained about servers he deemed 'fat.' She also claims that Hiers told her to 'bring pictures of herself when she was young' for him to look at. In addition, both Hiers and Deen were liberal users of racial slurs, according to Jackson.

The irony is that the only reason Jackson was hired was because the man who previously had the gig was fired for you guessed it sexually harassing the staff. Said harassment led to this delightful aside: Deen allegedly said to the outgoing manager 'If you think I have worked this hard to lose everything because of a piece of p---y, you better think again, and now I'm going to do something I have never done I am going to put a woman in a man's job.'

How progressive.

While there are two sides to every story, if even a fraction of this is true, Team Deen has got some serious issues on their hands. Seriously what century is it again? I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that dropping n-bombs in the workplace has been considered inappropriate behavior for some time now. I can see how that sort of language might be disconcerting in a place of business.

And the porn thing is just gross. How socially maladjusted can you be? And to throw all this at the woman who replaced the guy you fired for sexual harassment? It's just ridiculous. The dude is a troglodytic moron whose sole redeeming quality appears to be his sibling relationship to a woman capable of constructing an entire meal out of butter and bacon fat.

GodI wonder what his office smells like.
