Kim Kardashian: My Mom & Bruce Are Not Getting Divorced

According to tabloid reports, Kris and Bruce Jenner are headed for a divorce — despite the couple claiming the rumors couldn’t be further from the truth.

Writing exclusively on her blog, their daughter, Kim Kardashian, weighs in on the speculation and labels talk of a split as “ridiculous.”

She wrote:

This was my first time seeing Lamar play for The Clippers! It was funny how everyone made a big deal about Bruce and my mom not sitting together, saying it was fueling these ridiculous divorce rumors. Well I got four court-side seats, so Kanye and I obviously sat in two of them and then we wanted Khloe up front too, since it’s her husband playing, and then mom joined us too. My mom got eight other seats right behind us for the family, where Bruce sat with everyone else. I started to feel a little ill (I caught the flu over the Christmas holidays!) so Kanye and I left at half time and Bruce came to the front and sat with my mom. It’s a simple as that! Not everything is as dramatic as the media make it out to be!


The Kardashian-Jenner Family’s Most Memorable Vacation Snaps of 2012 (PHOTOS)

What a year has been for the Kardashian and Jenner clan!

Aside from letting cameras — and Oprah Winfreydocument their hectic lives on E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the famous family have also managed to jet set around the world for both business and pleasure.

This year, the Kardashians and Jenners traveled down to the Dominican Republic for a sun, sand and surf-filled vacation. Along with their family friends, the clan had a good laugh and even filmed their annual music video — a cover of Notorious B.I.G’s “Hypnotize” — during one of their boating trips.

Where else have they been this year?

Kim Kardashian created a fan frenzy in Kuwait early December when she unveiled a new Millions of Milkshakes location.

After posing for photographer and creating her signature concoction, the 32-year-old took in the sights of the Middle East, even daring to try camel’s milk during a pitstop in her road trip.

Kourtney Kardashian also traveled across the pond this year. After giving birth to her daughter Penelope, Kourt and boyfriend Scott Disick took their family — including son Mason — to see the lights in Paris.

“Our first night in Paris was magic! I hadn’t been to Paris since the 8th grade on a school trip. I absolutely fell in love with Paris on this visit … the city is so inspiring, truly magical. It might even be my favorite city in the world so far,” Kourtney wrote of the experience.

Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner made a literal splash on her birthday, hitting the beaches of Australia in a private helicopter with mom Kris.

“It was a blast and the views were breathtaking,” the 17-year-old blogged about the trip.

See what else their siblings were up to this year by flipping through their vacation photos — in the gallery above!

The Kardashians and Kanye West at ‘X Factor’: Contestants Share Their Awesome, Exciting and Awkward Run-Ins

FOX’s The X Factor co-host Khloe Kardashian Odom told Celebuzz that her family would be at the show for Thanksgiving and she wasn’t kidding.

Within the first few minutes of Wednesday’s Top 10 performance show, the camera panned across a row of Kardashians and Jenners, including Kim Kardashian, her boyfriend Kanye West, youngest sisters Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner, and their dad, Bruce Jenner.

After the show, the lucky contenders who actually got to meet members of the First Family of Reality TV were excited to talk about their run-ins.

Who got to hold hands with Kim (kind of)? Who was more excited to meet the family’s Olympian dad? Who took Kanye by surprise? And who wished they could have had more time with Kendall and Kylie?

Find out what The X Factor contestants had to say about meeting the Kardashian-Jenner clan below.

Arin Ray holds Kim’s hand by proxy: “I got to meet Kanye West today. That was amazing. This dude is one of my idols. It was crazy getting to meet him. It was awesome. Kim Kardashian was right next to him and they were holding hands when I shook his hand. So, technically, I was holding hands with Kim Kardashian. It was awesome getting to meet the whole family. I got to meet Kendall and Kylie. That was awesome. And, they’re super-cute, so it was awesome to meet them too.”

Vino Alan is star-struck by Bruce: “I got to meet all of them. They all pulled me aside, including Kanye, and said, ‘You’re great.’ And Bruce was there, who’s won gold medals for us. A lot of people forget that. Call me a cornball, but I like that stuff.”

Emblem3’s Wesley Stromberg catches Kendall and Kylie’s attention: “I saw them walk by and the two girls, Kendall and Kylie, they were like [he says in a girly voice], ‘Oohhhhhh.’ I wanted to say hi to them, but I was just pushed out the door. “

Carly Rose Sonenclar gets a very public compliment from Kim: “Kim tweeted about me! She said, ‘Wow, all I have to say is…Carly Rose. She sang the best version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow!!!!’ It was cool.

Paige Thomas isn’t waiting around for Kanye’s permission: “I met Kim. Kanye, I shook his hand and I almost passed out. I was kind of walking on the stage and I look over and was like, ‘I’m looking at a Kardashian and it’s not Khloe. What am I looking at?’ Kim was talking to me and I was so caught up in everything and trying to figure out what was going on right now. But, she was just like, ‘You did beautifully. You did so good.’ That was so awesome. Then, like, funny story with Kanye. I was like, ‘Hey,’ and waved to him. Then, I said, ‘Can I shake your hand?’ and I didn’t even wait for him to respond back. I just grabbed his hand and started shaking. He said, ‘Yeah, you did good.’ I think he was just kind of overwhelemed with the fact that I just kind of took it upon myself and not even wait for him to shake his hand.”

The X Factor Top 10 eliminations airs Thanksgiving Thursday at 8 PM on FOX.
