The Word: Kim Kardashian opens up about her divorce to Jay Leno

Kim Kardashian dare not speak her ex's name. At least to Jay Leno.

Kim Kardashian opened up to Jay Leno about her quickie marriage to Kris
Humphries on Wednesday night. It was a lot of what you’d expect: It was
nobody’s fault, “she still believes in love,” blah, blah, blah.
Basically, Kardashian did a great job of making a divorce sound as
un-juicy as possible (which is very hard to do).

“I’m a girl who
really believes in love, I’m in love with love and I thought this was it
for me,” she told Leno, never referring to Humphries by name, only as
“someone else.”

The 31-year-old said that when she “realized [the
marriage] wasn’t [what] I thought,” she “tried to be really respectful
of everyone involved.”

“I’ve heard stories of people who were married
for 10 years and they knew it wasn’t right, but they wanted to stick it
out and had kids,” she said. “I want that forever. I believed in love, I
still do. But to be fair to everyone, I knew I had to end it, and I’m
OK with that decision.”

I’m glad she still believes in love. And I
rest easy at night knowing she probably also still  believes in the kind
of love that she can make the most money off of.

A Rihanna and Kutcher booty call?

Rihanna was spotted making a late-night visit to the home of Ashton Kutcher this week, according to TMZ, which posted photos of the singer’s black SUV pulling up to the “Two and a Half Men” star’s home. Rihanna reportedly arrived around midnight — with her full security team — and stayed until about 4 a.m. Adding intrigue to the story is the fact that TMZ removed the item from its site shortly after posting it.

Ashton and Rihanna? Now, there’s a sex tape I’d watch.

Houston cause of death: Accidental drowning

In their official cause of death report, released yesterday, the L.A. County coroner concludes that Whitney Houston died from accidental drowning but that heart disease and cocaine use were also factors when she died on Feb. 11.

The report also states that at the time of death, the singer had cocaine in her system, although investigators found no evidence of cocaine in her room.

TMZ.com states that a source “close to the investigation” says that it’s still “very possible” that Houston had a heart attack that caused her to lose
