Kim Kardashian Hub
While many of you wondered when you will ever get the right to marry, Kim Kardashian made $17.9 million off her wedding:
The newlyweds sold the exclusive photo rights to US People magazine for $2.4 million, but the biggest payout came from the four-hour, two-part TV special that will air on the E! Network in October, according to the New York Post. "Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event " is expected to pull up to $15 million for the Kardashian family franchise and for producer Ryan Seacrest. The couple also get $300,000 for their exclusive engagement announcement in People and $100,000 for exclusive rights to the bridal shower with Britain’s OK! Magazine.

Jezebel explains the clip: "Kim decided not only that this man was gay but that she wanted to make him her 'shopping buddy,' inviting him into her dressing room while she tried on clothes. Then she brought him to a gay bar, where she tried to set him up with one of her gay friends. It was embarrassing for everybody, including the audience, who realizes that these scenarios are scripted yet they're still stupid."

Barney Frank tells Maureen Dowd about the possibility of a gay US president: “It’s one thing to have a gay person in the abstract. It’s another to see that person as part of a living, breathing couple. How would a gay presidential candidate have a celebratory kiss with his partner after winning the New Hampshire primary?
