  • The Shoe That Broke Kim Kardashian's Toe, and Other InvestigationsKim Kardashian tripped and broke her toe. Then she tweeted, "I knew my clumsiness would catch up with me at some point! I tripped on a suit case on the floor and broke my toe :-(" Quick, to the paparazzi, for an instant replay of the spike-heeled, leopard-print Christian Louboutins she was wearing. [Fig. 1, above] The next morning, Our Lady of the Luscious Ass was forced to wear—gasp!—flat shoes. [Fig. 2, at right] This forced her sisters to wear flat shoes, too, lest Kim look short by comparison. [Fig. 3] Later, Kim tweeted that her toe was "an unusual shade of purple." This is not the first time that Kim's shoes have attempted podiatric assassination: Two weeks prior, a pair of peep-toe Louboutins cut her.

  • Pink supports spanking because it's what her parents did to her: "I think parents need to beat the crap outta their kids… I think the whole spanking thing and how it's gotten all PC is for the birds. My dad put me through a wall; it's the only reason I'm still alive. I deserved it. I would have kicked me out when I was eight." Cycle of abuse? [Dlisted]

Apparently Demi "made verbal threats" to Ashley, too. [E!]
