The Word: Drinking up with the Kardashians

Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian attend Kim Kardashian's bachelorette dinner at TAO Bistro at the Venetian.

At the very real risk of giving them an idea for another reality show, we can all agree that — if not much else — the Kardashian girls throw an amazing bachelorette party.

Khloe and Kourtney were on hand in Vegas Saturday night for Kim’s bash (she’s set to marry Kris Humphries on Aug. 20), and judging by the many, many photos that have surfaced, all their hard work drinking in front of cameras over the past few years has paid off.

Looking alarmingly business-as-usual in a tiara and pink sash, Kim crashed the boys’ party next door before returning to Tao for more suggestively shaped straws and mini male strippers. “My sisters are doing everything they can to embarrass me,” she told the crowd.

Yes, well, that’s kind of the point, Kim. Now, why they have to embarrass substitute gossip columnists with precious little to write about after a weekend when seemingly no one left the air conditioning, we have no idea.

Who asked Vanilla Ice?

Vanilla Ice may have been trying to warn Justin Bieber about the perils of early fame, but it came out sounding pretty harsh: “Something else new will come along and he’ll be forgotten,” he tells the Huffington Post. “It’s going to be entertaining to watch.”

He’s probably right — but Justin is going to have a hard time topping Ice’s “Behind the Music.”

Another ‘Sunny’ baby on the way

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” stars Charlie Day and Mary Elizabeth Ellis are expecting a baby. “We’ve got a kid due in December,” Day tells People magazine. “We’re five months along, and she’s feeling great. We’re excited.”

First Sweet Dee and Mac, now Charlie and The Waitress? As weird as it is to remember that these people are, in reality, happily married professionals, we wish them luck! (And sincerely hope that it doesn’t prohibit them from portraying our favorite glue-sniffing sociopaths on the clock.)
