According to Lamar Odom, there might be a chance for him to save his marriage to Khloe Kardashian.

Odom told a reporter that he believes there is still a chance he will get back together with estranged wife Khloé Kardashian. When asked whether or not he thinks it could happen, he replied, “Of course.” He also added that KoKo is still his “girl” even though she has been trying to go through divorce proceedings.

“That’s my wife,” he declared.

Shortly after the video surfaced, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star posted a lengthy quote to Instagram about broken hearts. Although it could merely be a coincidence, the timing is definitely questionable.

Regardless, Lamar’s hopes and dreams might be crushed upon reading this message. “I know you’ve lost someone and it hurts,” the quote begins. “You may have lost them suddenly, unexpectedly…You cannot control the depth of a wound another soul inflicts upon you.”

North West Gets Baptized In Jerusalem

Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West visited a centuries-old Armenian church in Jerusalem on Monday for the baptism of their daughter, North West.

The Kardashians fended off swooning fans as they entered the Saint James Cathedral in Jerusalem’s Old City. Kardashian, appearing overwhelmed, clutched the tiny girl as she was escorted by West, her sister Khloe and hooded clergymen

“Stop,” Kim Kardashian shouted to the crowd. “Stop! It’s not safe for the baby,” her sister added.

Archbishop Aris Shirvanian, an Armenian church official, said the family had arrived for a baptism ceremony.

“Kim Kardashian’s daughter will be baptized and become a Christian officially and a member of the Armenian church,” Shirvanian said, slightly perplexed by all the commotion. “All I know is that she’s a famous personality. I don’t know her in person. In any case she is welcome with her family.”

There were no details on the ceremony, and the family left the church without speaking to reporters.

The members of reality TV’s first family arrived in a private jet at Israel’s international airport on Monday for what was described as a private two-day visit.

All were captured on camera disembarking their plane and the images featured prominently on Israeli websites. They were quickly whisked away in a dark black SUV to a hotel in Jerusalem. Paparazzi did their best to keep up with their movements.

The celebrities arrived from a high-profile visit to Armenia, where the Kardashian family traces its roots.

They are expected to shoot some footage for their reality show in Jerusalem before moving on to Jordan.

Karrueche Tran Talks With Iyanla Vanzant About Chris Brown

chris-brown-karrueche-tran-chris-stokes-blog

Things have been messy between singer Chris Brown and his now ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, and it looks to be about to get messier.

Oprah Winfrey’s network, OWN, posted a teaser Tuesday for Tran’s interview with Iyanla Vanzant. The inspirational speaker and host of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” fires off at Tran: “He betrayed you. He lied to you. He did it all publicly,” before asking, “How did you find out that he had a baby by another woman?”

Brown has been the subject of rumors that he fathered a daughter with another woman while in a relationship with Tran. He has neither confirmed nor denied the stories, but the story heated up when Tran tweeted on March 4, “Listen. One can only take so much. The best of luck to Chris and his family. No baby drama for me.”

The tweet was later deleted.

Brown and Tran have had an on-again, off-again relationship for years. In 2012, Brown posted a video on Twitter questioning whether it was possible to be in love with two people. At the time, the singer had broken up with Tran after once again growing close to singer Rihanna, whom he assaulted while they were dating in 2009.

“I love Karrueche very much but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna,” Brown said in the video. “I’d rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives.”

Brown and Rihanna eventually reunited but then broke up again, and he and Tran, who bills herself as a model and entrepreneur, resumed seeing each other.

On Wednesday, Brown commented from his Instagram account on a racy photo Tran posted of herself in a swimsuit while on vacation. The singer advised her to “Continue to be a lady beautiful.”

Vanzant’s interview with Tran airs at 8 p.m. ET March 28.

Madonna Admits To Secret Relationship With Tupac

Madonna

After over twenty years of guessing, Madonna confirmed she dated Tupac Shakur prior to him dying.

The 56-year-old talked about her brief relationship with the rapper, who tragically died in 1996, while on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show.

Back in the ’90s while doing an appearance on David Letterman, she revealed her relationship with Tupac.

Stern asked her if she liked Letterman because back in the 90s all of her interviews appeared hostile.

Madonna said she was usually flirting with the late night host except for one appearance in 1994 where she was a bit vulgar in her language. ‘I was mad at [David Letterman] when I said the F-word a lot,’ she explained. ‘I was in a weird mood that day. I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and the thing is he got me all riled up about life in general.’ She went on to add, ‘So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangsta.’

Madonna was long believed to have dated the iconic rapper in 1994 but she never spoke publicly about the relationship. Coincidentally, just prior to his death, Tupac referred to Madonna as ‘real nice’ and someone who ‘helped me a lot’.

A book by Lucy O’Brien, Like An Icon (2007), claims that the Material Girl not only dated the rapper but wanted a baby with him. Madonna has never responded to the claim but has since gone on to become the mother to four children.

That seems like one relationship that must have been very interesting…

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Reunite?

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber can’t seem to stay away from each other. Just a few weeks after the “Heartbreaker” singer told Power 106 that he and his ex were “not talking,” the two were spotted riding Segways near Bieber’s Calabasas, Calif., home.

The exes were photographed together for the first time in months on Thursday, Jan. 2. Gomez — who recently canceled her Australian tour to “spend some time on [her]self” — donned gray leggings, a white tank, and a big black coat for the outing, while her on-again, off-again beau sported black shorts, a white T-shirt, and a baseball cap.

The 19-year-old pop star recently opened up about his relationship with the Spring Breakers actress during an interview with Power 106’s Big Boy. Asked how his song “All That Matters” came about, Bieber admitted it was inspired by his ex.

“‘All That Matters’ was written when I was in a great place in my relationship, and at that time, you know, she was all that mattered in my life,” he explained.

“I was definitely in love,” he added. “[The breakup] affected us, especially when we are in front of so many people. It’s such a public thing. It’s just hard for the both of us. But, you know, she’s a great woman. I love her to this day…I think we’re going to be the greatest friends.”

He noted, though, that they were taking a break from being in contact. “Right now, we’re taking a little time and not talking,” he told Big Boy of the 21-year-old singer, whom he dated on and off until last year.

Gomez, for her part, has said it’s been hard to close the door on her connection with the Canadian. “I’ve known him for a really long time, and we enjoy each other’s company every now and then,” she shared in August. “But I’m definitely single and enjoying being that.”

Catherine Zeta-Jones & Michael Douglas Reunited After Four Month Separation

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones stepped out in together with their two children for a cute family outing on Dec. 22. It was the first time the couple had been spotted in public after they announced their separation four months ago.

Micheal, 69, and Catherine, 44, were surprisingly photographed together on Dec. 22 with their two children, Dylan, 13 and Carys, 10. The coupled hadn’t been seen together since August.

The group had an easy day. They ate lunch at Orso in Manhattan and from there saw the Broadway musical Motown and then caught a showing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

The actor and actress have been together since 1999. They celebrated (likely separately) their 13th wedding anniversary in November.

Earlier this year, Catherine had stated she and Michael were “taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage.” Michael, however, was hoping they’d stay together and in October told Jay Leno he’s hopeful that he and Catherine could work things out and stay together.

“I’ve been away for a while, but everything should hopefully be on the up and up,” Michael said. “Sometimes people take a little bit of a break, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that’s the end. So I’m very hopeful.”

The proud couple reportedly believes in marriage and aren’t ready to pull the plug on their marriage by divorcing one another.

“This is a separation, not a split. Not a divorce,” a source told People magazine of their situation. “They’re not giving up.”

And now it looks like that fortitude paid off!

P.Diddy does not seem interested in walking down the aisle just yet.

During an interview on talk show The View last week, the 43-year-old admitted that he is not really looking right now, though he has been dating the 26-year-old beauty for over a year.

When the hosts asked him about marriage, he said, “It definitely would be a dream come true for me to just one day be ready for that. I’m not really looking because I know the responsibility that comes with that and I think that a lot of people, they jump into that and they’re not honest with themselves.

I’m brutally honest with myself. I don’t want to get married and not make that woman be the best. I’ve been close to it and when I’m ready I’ll make the announcement, but when I do it, I’m doing it forever.”
