    Kim Kardashian wants a star on the Hollywood walk of fame and she thinks reality stars should have the opportunity. She says she understands that she is not a singer or an actress but she thinks reality stars are misunderstood and she wants to break the mold and bring others into the mainstream.

  • Is Your Partner Cheating? Check Their Phone!

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    According to a new survey, ONE THIRD of people say it's totally fine to read your partner's texts or emails if they're acting suspiciously.

    37% of women say they'd have no issues with digging through their significant other's texts and emails if they thought he might be cheating.  Men were less likely to be okay with prying . . . only 29% say it's fine.

     

    The survey also found that only 41% of people 18 to 34 say it's fine to date more than one person at the same time.  People over 55 were most likely to have no problem with the idea of dating multiple people.

     

    Do you check your partner's cellphone or Facebook account? If so why? 

  • Never Get Pulled Over Again!

    I'm not exactly sure why people hate seatbelts so much.  They decrease your chance of dying in an accident by 40% to 50%.  Just because the government tells you to do something, doesn't ALWAYS mean it's wrong . . . does it?

    But some people just don't want to wear seatbelts.  So to avoid tickets, they're buying t-shirts that have a black diagonal stripe across the front . . . that way, it LOOKS like you're wearing a seatbelt even though you're not.

    We heard about this trend from a news article about how popular it is in China . . . but after we searched, it seems like there are PLENTY of people over here who are going with fake seatbelt t-shirts too.

     

    The 100.7 Mix Morning show does not endorse this shirt. Wear at your own risk!

    The first man to walk on the moon died over the weekend. Neil Armstrong suffered complications from a surgery he had a few weeks ago to clear a blocked artery. He was 82 years old. He was 38 years old when he said, “That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

     

    and NBC made a huge mistake when the news broke...they tweeted that Neil Young had died...the musician is still very much alive.

     

    Jerry Nelson, the man who voiced The Count on “Sesame Street” has passed away. He was 78.

     

    It was just a matter of time, Prince Harry is single again after his girlfriend dumped him over the picture-gate. The pictures showed him hanging with some girls that were not his girlfriend....and oh yeah...he was naked.

      

    American Idol wanted Katy Perry so bad that it offered her $20 million to be a judge this season but she told them she wasn't interested saying that “money, wasn't the issue.” Sources close to the singer say that she didn't think it was a good career move.

     

    Snooki is now a mommy. She gave birth with her son Lorenzo Dominic on Sunday. She announced the news on Twitter saying that the world just got another Guido.”

     

    Also giving birth over the weekend was Anna Faris and her husband Chris Pratt. They welcomed their first child Jack on Saturday.

     

    Rihanna might already be done with Robert Pattinson! She was seen with Rob Kardashian on Saturday. The two were seen at a go-kart track and then later that night they went to the Playhouse in Los Angeles.

     

    And stop everything! John Mayer has cut his hair! Does it have something to do with the Katy Perry split? Is he trying to tell us something about Jennifer Aniston? Is this a political statement? Or was it just that his long hair looked like crap and someone finally told him? I guess somethings will just remain a mystery.

    John Mayer and Katy Perry are done with their very brief romance.

Another source said that even though she wasn't expecting anything serious she was still hurt.

     

    Britney Spears' people filed papers this week asking that her conservatorship case to be sealed because of a serious medical issue that they do not want the public to know about. This medical issue prevents Britney from consistently making sound decisions.

     

    Lance Armstrong has decided to give up fighting the doping charges that have dogged him for years saying, quote “Enough is enough.” But he is not admitting guilt. He will probably be stripped of the seven straight Tour de France titles he won, a bronze medal from the 2000 Summer Olympics and be banned from competitive cycling for life. He says he is not fighting it anymore because he will never have a fair shot at clearing his name.

     

    Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are officially divorced and it looks like Katie walked away with nothing more than child support. The prenup that she signed shut her out of Tom's millions and she got no spousal support. Katie will get more than $33,0000 a month until Suri turns 18.

  • They Did What!?

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    We have all been there. Working at a fast food restaurant, cleaning up spilled popcorn at a movie theatre and maybe even washing cars in the hot sun. We all have one job that we are ashamed of and celebrities are no exception! Check out the bizarre jobs that some stars had before they got famous and then share your stories!

     

    Gwen Stefani: Before she sang "Just a Girl" she was just serving soft serve at a Dairy Queen in California. She claims that all the dipped cones made her fat. 

     

    Brad Pitt: Who would put such a pretty face behind a chicken suit? Maybe Brad would have sold more chicken if he hadn’t been stuck inside that El Pollo Loco costume.

     

    Howard Stern: Add this to the creepy file! Before the "shock jock" took to the airways he worked as an ice cream truck driver, selling the delicious treat to kids...yikes. 

     

    Amy Adams: Wonder if she kept the tiny orange shorts that she got from working as a "Hooter's Girl".

     

    Jennifer Lopez: Those dancing classes weren't cheap and this singer/actress made her money to pay for them by working as a legal assistant. 

     

    Will Ferrell: I wouldn't give him my keys! Will worked as a valet before he worked at making people laugh. 

     

    Christopher Walken: The legendary actor worked for the circus one summer, as a lion tamer. He’s said the lion was old and tired, but what an amazing thing to put on your resume! What about tap dancer?

    Could it be that Kim Kardasian's past is catching up with her? A porn star names Julain St. Jox told Star magazine that Kim was involved in a four-way! He is saying that Kim, her possible 1st husband tussled with St. Jox and his girlfriend. Kim's reps deny this but Star says they have confirmed the story through two sources.

     

    LL Cool J has kept his street cred after he beat up man that broke into his home. The robber apparently “rushed” the rapper and that led to a knock-down drag out fight...and LL Cool J won. When the cops arrived at his house they saw that the robber had a broken nose and jaw! He has been arrested...MOMMA GONNA KNOCK YOU OUT! (Sorry, had to get that in there!) 

     

    It's probably what every man fears! Prince William has said that he is “not impressed” with his brother's naked Vegas pictures. To add insult to injury, Prince Harry might actually be in trouble with the British Army in which he serves. They said, “this type of behavior is not expected of someone his age and rank.”

     

    Avril Lavigne and Nickleback singer Chad Kroeger are talking about falling in love to a Canadian magazine. This is after Avril released pictures showing off her new 14-carat diamond ring! She says that Kroeger is very “attentive” and makes her laugh. Chad said that falling in love with her was something he will “never forget.” (let's hope so!)

     

    Twilight's Robert Pattinson might be moving on with Rihanna. The singer is reportedly interested in the sparkly vampire and she has been texting him...and he is texting back! He also told friends that he thinks she is very cute. His friends are urging him to go for it, but so far it hasn't gone past flirty text messages.

     

    Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are moving fast! “Life and Style” says that he has been referring to his new girlfriend as his “little wife”...this is all cute and everything but keep in mind that Ashton is not officially divorced from Demi Moore yet.

     

    Justin Bieber announced to the Twitter world that he is coming to a Simpson's episode near you...but he really wasn't suppose to announce it just yet! The episode will air on Sept. 30th and he will play a character that tries to get into a talent show that Bart is also in. No word if he is in trouble for spilling the beans!

    Beloit College in Wisconsin just released their annual list of the things that incoming college freshmen are too young to know about.  If you want to feel like the oldest person on the planet...continue reading!

    #2.)  They know ROBERT DE NIRO as Greg Focker's father-in-law, not a mobster.

     

    #3.)  They've never used an actual airline ticket.

     

    #4.)  They've never had to carry their luggage, they've always rolled it.

    #16.)  They have no recollection of ARIANNA HUFFINGTON being a conservative.
