Yes, it's true. All the news outlets, including ABC News have reported that Kimye, Kanmie, erm, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting a baby.
Um, Kimmie hasn't divored the last K-man in her life: Kris Humphries. The upcoming episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians should be interesting.
Coming soon Kardashian Kollection Tots. Overpriced baby crap with their signature K's all over them.

Who was Awful? What was fabulous and what sucked in 2012?
There were incredible highs this year and incredible lows. A US space mission to Mars didn’t fail; meggings (men’s leggings) is attempting to torture our eyes and sensibilities. We had devastating Sandys: Super Storm Sandy and the Sandy Hook school shooting. Kristen Stewart kept wearing sheer on the red carpet. It went from vaguely titillating to boring.
Stars have gotten pregnant—Jenna Dewan Tatum, Jessica Simpson, et al. Stars have given Birth—Reese Witherspoon and a bunch more. The perennial rumor that Jen Aniston is preggers has once again reared its head.
Gray lips is a trend. I think whoever came up with that idea should be slapped back into next Tuesday. Skinny jeans are still here, so are messy buns, dip-dye hair and high-low hems.
Okay, you’ve read the article this far and you’re probably wondering where the hell is my best and worst list of the year, right? Guess what, I am not making one.
Every single website, blog, newspaper, magazine and your neighbor has a list of what was hot and what sucked this past year. You’ve been inundated to the point of nausea. Why should I add any more fuel to the fire? Do you really care that I think gray lips make people look like they need more fruit in their diet? Or that men in leggings is as bad as them dressing up for a renn faire?
Nah, I didn’t think so.
What I am interested in is what you think. What did you love or hate this year? What made your world rock and what made it really and truly suck.
I’m asking you to take over the comments section and use it to let the world know what you love, what you think is amazing and what was the biggest ass hat mistake of the year.
Shaunie of Nashville, TN is going to have a blast shopping at her local Tarjay....wheeeeeeeee!
Thanks to everyone for entering and commenting on the posts. Please feel free to visit and comment anytime. Glad to have you here!
Another contest is coming up and you could be the next winner!
Every year, Harvey Nichols, a UK department store, trots out the coolest and silliest ads.
Every year I look forward to the Harvey Nichols Christmas ads. Like the one above, they've got cheeky humor and dogs.
Somehow, someway they manage to insert a dog into a scene or two during their holiday ads. Yes, I'm a bit partial to the above one because it reminds me of Dr. Who. It's a bit of a stretch, but think of Cybermen who were really well dressed and you get the idea.
Here's one of theirs from 2010.
Last year, Bergdorf Goodman jumped on the dogs in Christmas videos with this mini-movie.
It always makes me weepy.
Okay, this Vodafone ad is from is from the Czech Republic. Check out the teeny, weeny reindeer.
