A child is born

We wouldn't be doing our duty here at Celebrity Slam if we didn't take a moment to acknowledge the birth of a daughter to proud parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Whenever a prominent celebrity power couple adds to their family, it warrants mentioning.

Also warranting mention is the cottage industry that seems to be springing up around the child. It is one thing to have an interest heaven knows we've heard enough about it over the past months but there are some people that have a need to make things 'interesting.'

Through gambling.

A number of bookmakers are posting odds, so anyone looking to make a quick buck off the situation can lay a wager as to what Baby K's name will eventually be. Current odds show names like Kim (7:1), Kelsey and Kara (both 9:1) as the favorites; while Kanye's mom's name (Donda) is listed at 8:1, we can all agree that there's no way this kid escapes getting a 'K' name. If you're looking for a longshot, Kimye is going off at 25:1 I can't be the only one who's rooting hard for that one.

It just goes to show you some people will bet on anything. You'd be hard pressed to find two people with a deeper hunger for the spotlight than these two; stuff like gambling on the name of their just-born kid only encourages them. You'd like to think that they won't thrust the baby into the public eye right away, but let's be real would anyone be surprised if that baby shows up in-concert on a stage with Kanye inside of a month?  We already know that Lil K is never going to know a world where she doesn't have a camera jammed up in her face 24/7.

You just hope is that they find a way to put their own desires aside and give this little girl a chance at something resembling a normal life. And maybe they will. Maybe they'll surprise us.

In any case, the play dates with Blue Ivy are going to be epic.

Twitter chump Trump

There are a few famous people that can be consistently counted on to be such insufferable nozzles that they can't help but find their way to this space. These are the people who have far too much ego and not nearly enough self-awareness. These are the people whose sense of self-importance is overinflated to a ludicrous degree. These are the people who are in love with the sound of their own voices.

These are people like Donald Trump.

Trump recently got into a war of words with, of all people, a writer for the television show 'Modern Family.' It all started when Trump tweeted about how he had warned everyone about China back in the 1980s. The writer, Danny Zuker, fired back a tweet mocking Trump about the fact that his 's----y clothes' were made in China, and by children no less.

It escalated quickly, with Trump taking a few clumsy swings at Zuker mostly about money; Zuker then insulted Trump's insults. Trump then took a shot the quality of Zuker's show; that was apparently the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back, because Zuker just crushed him.

Highlights include:

'Since you're unable to manufacture decent comebacks maybe you can outsource the job to China.'

'@realDonaldTrump Doesn't like the show I work on but then we've never tested well with the racist, hypocritical, multiple bankruptcy demo.'

And my favorite:

'Clearly the one thing @realDonaldTrump didn't inherit from his daddy was a thesaurus.'

You're going to need some salve for that burn. Or some aloe vera at the very least.

Here's the great thing about Donald Trump he's so oblivious that he probably thinks that he won this fight. He probably thinks that he wins every one of these stupid internet tiffs he gets into. His level of self-delusion is off the charts; frankly, that deep-rooted narcissism is what makes him such a magnificent tool. 

But Zuker should probably be a little embarrassed too. He did start the fight, after all. Granted, it was by referencing the Donald's hypocrisy, but still. Not to mention the fact that he went after such low-hanging fruit. Really, dude? A war of words with Donald Trump? You might as well have been sitting on his chest and slapping him in the face with his own hand while asking why he was hitting himself. 

Trump's hairpiece was unavailable for comment.
