Is It Weird that Kim Kardashian's Boyfriend Shares a Name with Her Mother?

Will Kim's world explode when Kris Jenner and Kris Humphries meet? Lea Michele made a 14-year-old girl cry. Eddie Cibrian bought LeAnn Rimes' engagement ring after getting his child support reduced. Friday gossip is full of uncomfortable realizations.

  • Is It Weird that Kim Kardashian's Boyfriend Shares a Name with Her Mother?SKim Kardashian's new boyfriend, Nets player Kris Humphries, has yet to meet her mother, Kris Jenner, probably because it would force her to acknowledge that the name she moans in bed belongs to her mother. Is it me, or is that weird? I briefly dated a boy with my brother's name, and had to cut if off, because it was simply too strange. Like Kim, Kris H. hails from a family of K's (sisters: Krystal and Kaela) so overlap was inevitable. Sidenote: How different does Kim look without makeup? She's still very beautiful, but in an "advertisement for American Apparel" way, as opposed to her usual "fold-out spread in a car magazine." I've used this image before, but feel compelled to use it again, because moving your eyes back and forth between the two faces of Kim Kardashian is fascinating and strange.

  • Eddie Cibrian's purchase of an $85,000 engagement ring for LeAnn Rimes coincided with the lowering of his child support due to diminished income, probably because LeAnn now supports him. Ex-wife Brandi Glanville says his "timing" sucks. [Us]

  • A newly svelte Raven Symoné—onetime star of Disney's That's So Raven and former Lohan roommate—liked herself better big: "I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did. So, whatever…. Now I wear bigger clothes because I don't like the way people stare at me. I liked it before. Now, you're just looking at me for the wrong reasons." Behold: The first female to escape the Disney child star gauntlet with healthy self-esteem intact. [People]

  • Lea Michele made 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld, the little girl from True Grit, cry. In teeny-bopper magazine J-14 (really excited to have a reason to link to them) she described her most embarrassing moment: "When I was auditioning for True Grit, I was on the Paramount lot. I was wearing clothes from the 1800s that were big and uncomfortable. Glee also films on the lot and I love the show, but I haven't really followed it. I saw Lea Michele just walking to her trailer and I was like, 'That's the girl from Glee. I've got to go ask for her autograph!' So I walked up to her and asked for her autograph, but she walked by and a guy came and said, 'Sorry, now's not a good time!' So I had to walk all the way back to the car wearing what I was wearing. I was practically crying on the way home. I was so sad! But she's beautiful and she has an amazing voice." The gossip jujitsus at Lainey Gossip note that this is the second time a Lea Michele diva move has intruded on someone else's otherwise peaceful interview: She also shoved her way into Matthew Morrison's sexy-pants Details interview, with comedic results. It appears Lea actually is Rachel Berry. [J-14, LaineyGossip, Details]

  • Speaking of Lea Michele, she's joined a PETA campaign to boycott horse-drawn carriages in Central Park. And—synergy!—during an impromptu performance at a friend's jazz show, Gaga announced that she, too, felt sad for the Central Park horses, clomping around in the cold. [, Popeater, PETA, Gatecrasher]

  • The Palm Desert Police Department won't let up on Lindsa Lohan's alleged assault of a Betty Ford Clinic staffer who violated confidentiality laws to leak stories about LiLo. Apparently PDPD interviewed LiLo's "special friend" from rehab, a strapping young lad named Adam Case who is partial to cowboy hats and flashy watches. [TMZ]

  • Ripple-chested half-wolf heartthrobTaylor Lautner is dating Phil Collins' daughter Lily Collins, "but it's too early to see what will happen because they are both young," and the public has yet to reach consensus on whether Taylor is a closet case, or just well dressed. [Popeater]

  • Sean Penn takes a circuitous jab at ex-wife Robin Wright during an interview about his charitable work: "I had just got taken for one half of everything I had in the divorce, so it's not like I don't have to work." Way to balance an article about your kindness with a shot of bitterness. [THR]

  • When Matthew McConaughey hangs out with Brazilian girlfriend Camilla Alves' friends, he introduces himself as Matheus, which is the Portuguese version of his name. I hate it when people do that. I know a Spaniard named Angel whom everyone calls an-jell, and it's so damn precious that I want to throttle a kitten every time I have to say his name. [P6]

  • A jury convicted sleazy Anna Nicole Smith lawyer/enabler Howard K. Stern of two conspiracy charges in the trial over Anna's death and drug use, but the judge deemed their verdict baseless and threw it out. With egg on his face, the district attorney said he'll appeal the ruling, and may retry Stern on several other charges that left the jury hung. All of which is somewhat awkward for newly-minted Governor of California Jerry Brown, who was Attorney General when the charges against Stern were launched. [TMZ]

  • How Camille Grammer found out husband Kelsey was cheating on her: "A mutual friend called me and said, 'I don't like what he's doing to you and I don't like the timing because you're still in the middle of shooting a reality show.' And then I called him that night and texted him. No answer from him," Camille, 42, recalls. "I waited for three hours and then he called me and said, 'I don't want to be married anymore.'"

  • Sandra Bullock took her baby shopping, and "he was flirting with the stylists and giving kisses to everyone." Can babies flirt? I suppose peek-a-boo has a natural flirtation dynamic—coyly vying for attention, then shying away from it, then inviting it again. [People]
