REALITY STARS WANT MO MONEY
Will there be a season 4 of “Love & Hip-Hop NY”? Not if VH1 doesn’t start compensating the cast with beefier paychecks. According the TMZ, half of the cast of the popular drama-filled show refused to show up in NYC on Tuesday (May 21) to shoot a trailer for a new season as a protest to renegotiate their contracts for more dough. Allegedly, the cast members who DID show up angrily left the set after finding out the reason for the absences of their fellow cast members, also feeling they should have increases in compensation. A source tells TMZ most of the L&HH NY cast are asking for double of what last season paid, as well as the opportunity to have more control of how the show is edited, due to dissatisfaction about how they feel they were portrayed. The cast hopes to reach an agreement with VH1 by the end of this week.
So Kim & Kanye seemed to have given the biggest hint possible as to what they're having this summer. A pink ballerina twirling in a box to a Kanye West lullaby was their baby shower invite. I’m sure that means they're having a girl. Unless the invite was all about Kim herself instead of the baby....TMZ has the first photo proof. (click here) The invite to Kim K's June 2nd bash -- sent to a guest close to Kanye West -- arrived as a fully functional music box, complete with a spinning ballerina ... dancing to a lullaby version of Kanye's "Hey Mama." Not only is the invite playing the baby daddy's tune, but the ballerina bears a striking resemblance to Kim herself -- just in case anyone forgets who this party is REALLY celebrating. According to the invites, Kris Jenner, Shelli Azoff (wife of uber-manager Irving Azoff), Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are hosting the party. Recommended attire ... garden chic. We think that's rich people speak for casual.
