These are obviously just aerial views, but I’m sure pics of the interior will soon leak online. What’s unbelievable to me is that a dude like Kanye will be moving into a frickin’ neighborhood cul-de-sac, of all places. Sure it’s a neighborhood of obscenely rich & probably famous people, but I always felt Kanye was on another level—kind of like, say, Michael Jackson. He was supposed to be a little elusive & above the rest of us robots. Having said that, I feel like once the guy hooked up with a chick like Kim Kardashian, it kind of downgraded his entire aura to more normal & slightly cheaper type of wealth & fame. It sucks that a chick can have such a powerful effect on somebody’s reputation, but hey, when your fame is rooted by a video featuring you getting pounded in the ass, it just comes with the territory.
We’d love to say that Kanye’s pad is the best one in the neighborhood, but judging by his neighbor’s house, that’s unfortunately not the case. Let’s just say Kanye’s friend Jay-Z, if he were consulted, would probably disapprove of the purchase. But then again, $11 mil is a drop in the bucket for a true power couple like Jay-Z & Beyonce, so it’s an unfair comparison.
Here are some specs on the Mediterranean style mansion, which is located in a guard gated community near Bel Air. Originally built in 2010, the home features 9,000 square feet of living space with five bedrooms & seven bathrooms. Check the gallery for more details on the interior.
I’m sure some of you bastards saw her during last night’s big championship game (Alabama killed Norte Dame, 42-14) b/c ESPN’s creepy girlfriend cam was in heavy use as they kept showing Alabama QB AJ McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb between each down. I love how the old commentators were wacking off to this chick during the the SEC Championship game. Check the video below of the ESPN footage and gallery for more photos of Katherine.
My initial plans were to post my comments yesterday, with the action from Sunday still fresh in my mind. Unfortunately, my body decided to get a flu sometime Friday night so I ended up watching the wild card games huddled in blankets. Now i’m back on track to 100% so I can post some thoughts that are still on my mind from Sunday’s games. Before I get to that, I know i’m not the first person to say that the games were a bit underwhelming as a whole. That changed Sunday so all is well that ends well.
How effective can the Texans be with Schaub? I picked the Bengals mostly because I thought the Texans were in a major rut, particularly at the QB position. Foster was much better (32 car, 140 yds, 1 TD) and defense was solid but even after all that, the Bengals still had a strong chance to win game at the end. Dalton and the Bengals weren’t able convert on 3rd down the entire game but it always felt like the Bengals were in. To Schaub’s credit, he did convert a nice pass to basically seal the game for Houston but how much further can they advance?
Are the Packers the scariest team in the NFC? Poor Adrian Peterson, I really feel bad that a RB of his caliber has to be stuck with such mediocre play at QB. The Packers threw absolutely everything at him, daring the Vikings pass game to keep up with the Packers and it ended up working for Green Bay. What surprised me the most about the Packers offense was how effective their running game was. The Packers used a Harris-Kuhn combo very well, particularly in the red zone to further open up the passing game of Aaron Rodgers and co. The result was Rodgers being able to find 10 different receivers. Scary.
Is Joe Flacco taking that next step? Flacco gets a lot of crap for calling himself “elite” and among the top quarterbacks in the league but he played very well against the Colts. It doesn’t hurt when his best receiver Boldin (145 yds, 1 TD) is able to catch any bomb that’s thrown his way. Yes, the Colts secondary isn’t known for shutting teams down but it’s the kind of game that any quarterback can use as momentum heading forward. Oh yeah, we get it Ray Lewis, it was your last home game. Stop dancing and save the energy for when you’re in Denver this weekend.
Should RG3 have kept playing? One of the hottest topics around the league yesterday and that was before it was being reported that he partially tore ligaments in a previously injured knee. The field was terrible and is part of blame but how much should land on head coach Shanahan and the rest of the Redskins staff? Chances are that this won’t be the only time RG3 is in the postseason so why would the Redskins risk a “do or die” playoff attitude right now? One of the biggest reasons people are questioning this decision not bench RG3 is because back up Kirk Cousins has shown the capability to lead them to a victory.
Ps. How great was it that Russell Wilson sprinted past Marshawn Lynch to block for him (pictured above) on the go ahead TD for the Seahawks?
It’s nice to see that Ashley Benson is landing other gigs thanks to her role in the upcoming hit film “Spring Breakers.” The beautiful actress hooked up w/ evening dress designer Faviana to help pimp their prom dresses to kids later this spring. Watch some behind-the-scenes footage from her Faviana shot here.
Besides Faviana, Ashley Benson is also making headlines today for playing a small role in James Franco’s parody of Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” music video. It’s pretty damn hilarious, so check it out below:
Or maybe it was the lighting as the young Victoria’s Secret model walked through JFK? The 18-year-old Hungarian, Barbara Palvin, was seen arriving at the airport after enjoying her holidays. Normally when we see photos of Barbara, she’s either wearing a bikini or modeling lingerie, so our eyes aren’t necessarily on her teeth. Let’s just hope she doesn’t end up getting blatantly fake horse teeth installed by some NYC surgeon looking to make an easy buck, although we’re pretty sure her agent won’t let that happen. However, I really think a professional whitening treatment would do Barbara wonders!
Let’s hope that as a courtesy to all straight dudes out there, Cristiano Ronaldo spent all of last night making intense love to Irina Shayk. These latest photos were snapped last night at the FIFA Ballon d’Or Gala 2013 at held at the Congress House in Zurich, Switzerland.

I can’t promise that this will be the only Kim Kardashian news (we are talking about the star Kardashian, after all), but the big news as of this morning is that Kim and Kanye and her baby bump have gone ahead and purchased an $11 million Bel Air mansion in which their little bundle of joy can take his or her first steps . . . to be promptly sold to the highest bidder or saved for the sweeps week episode of whatever televised reality disaster they happen to be producing at the moment.
According to those in the know, “the new home will be an Italian-style villa … with a gym, movie theater, full hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, basketball court, indoor and outdoor pool.” Neighbors will include Jennifer Aniston, Chris Paul, and Joe Francis.
