Kim Kardashian Leaving "Keeping Up with the Kardashians"

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- It's safe to say that since dating Kanye West, Kim Kardashian has changed. 

Not only has the rapper revamped her wardrobe -- on the last season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians we see West giving her a closet makeover -- he's made her more private, especially now that they're expecting a child together.  So it comes to no surprise that the woman who made her career on living life publicly, now wants more privacy.

Kardashian's family has signed on for two more seasons of the reality show and she says when they’re finished, so is she.

“I think there’s always an evolution of, you know, what you want to do in life,” Kardashian tells Dujour magazine.  “It’s all about finding things that really excite you and motivate you and spark you all over again."

Fans will have to get their fill of Kardashian on Keeping Up's upcoming Season 8, which they've already begun filming.  Still, don't expect to see much of Kardashian's pregnancy on the reality series.  The magazine reports the show won't detail much "baby stuff" and won't include shopping for the baby, doctors appointments, or the birth.

"My boyfriend has taught me a lot about privacy,” she tells the magazine.  “I’m ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships.  I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything.  I’m shifting my priorities.”

Season 8 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premieres in June on E!

Four More Kardashian Shows in the Works?

Scott Kirkland/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- "The more things change, the more things stay the same," says the old adage, which apparently will soon apply to E!.  The network is undergoing a major re-branding effort, from its logo inward, at the hands of NBCUniversal cable entertainment head Bonnie Hammer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hammer -- who helped put the successful USA Network on the map -- is looking to similarly transform the entertainment channel, currently home to the hits Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

For those who might be hoping that a new E! will mean less of the Kardashian family, think again.  Hammer says she envisions, "two, three, even four new Kardashian [spinoffs],"including a pair from mom Kris Jenner's two youngest daughters Kendall, 14, and Kylie, 13 -- who are technically Jenners, not Kardashians, because they are Kris Jenner's kids with former Olympian Bruce Jenner, not hers with her former husband, the late celebrity lawyer Robert Kardashian.

As for the backlash over Kim Kardashian's 72 day wedding -- itself the grist of countless hours of E! programming -- Hammer insists, "This was not a stunt.  In no way did people believe that this was going to happen...I think true Kardashian fans know that a bigger than life mistake can be made easily in their world.  Everything they do is bigger than life...It's in their DNA."

James Bond Targets the Kardashians

Don Arnold/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Don't expect Kim Kardashian to ever be a Bond Girl -- at least while Daniel Craig's wearing 007's tux.

The actor, who is currently shooting his third James Bond adventure, Skyfall, blasted the reality TV family as "F***ing idiots" in a new GQ interview.

Craig is famously reserved about his private life, so much so that he just recently revealed he secretly married Oscar winner Rachel Weisz last June.

"Look at the Kardashians," the actor told GQ.  "You see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f***ing idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?'"

The actor continued his rant against the Kardashian family, telling GQ, "You can't buy it back -- you can't buy your privacy back."  'Ooh I want to be alone.'  F*** you.  We've been in your living room.  We were at your birth.  You filmed it for us and showed us the placenta and now you want some privacy?"

Not surprisingly, Craig wouldn't share much about his relationship with Weisz.

"Look, I'm in love.  I'm very happy.  And that is as far as I'm prepared to go," he allowed.  "Life is long, life goes wrong and I don't want to say something now that might be thrown back later."

Craig will be seen next in the thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which opens on Dec. 21.

Kim Kardashian Files for Divorce

Denise Truscello/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- The rumors are apparently true: Kim Kardashian and her NBA star hubby Kris Humphries have split. The couple, whose brief courtship and lavish wedding fueled ratings for E!'s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, have gone their separate ways, just 72 days after they tied the knot.

ABC News Radio obtained the following statement from Kardashian: "After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best."


Kardashian and Humphries had been seen in public separately of late, sparking rumors things weren't as rosy as the events on Kim's reality show and the four-hour spin-off special Kim's Fairytale Wedding would have viewers believe.

She is citing the showbiz industry standard "irreconcilable differences" as the cause of the split, but in his own statement, Humphries seems to indicate he had no idea Kim's legal action was coming. "I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce. I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents, and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work."

Card-ashian? Kim Kardashian Hawks Credit Card for Teens

Photo Courtesy - PRNewsFoto/Simmons Jewelry Co.(NEW YORK) -- Kim Kardashian is many things: beautiful and business-savvy, popular on both Twitter and TV.

But a role model for smart spending? Maybe not.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star celebrated the launch of the Kardashian Prepaid MasterCard at New York City's Pacha nightclub Tuesday. Clad in a skintight dress appropriately adorned with sequins the color of coins, Kardashian, 30, and her sisters, Khloe Kardashian, 26, and Kourtney Kardashian, 31, gushed to Entertainment Tonight about their love of spending money.

When asked which one of the trio spends the most, Kourtney said, "No question, it's Kim." Kim, who once admitted to spending $2,500 on a pair of lace-and-python Christian Louboutin booties, nodded her head in agreement.

Kim and her sisters teamed with MasterCard to create a prepaid credit card for teens as young as 13 years old. The card allows parents to put a predetermined amount of money on the card, then track their teens' spending habits via cell phone.

Despite the Kardashian clan's lavish lifestyle, Mobile Resource, the company releasing the card, believes the family can breed budget-friendly spending habits in their fans.

"It is clear that the Kardashians are very wealthy, Kim also just spent $30,000 on a purse," a representative for Mobile Resource said in a statement to "They can well afford their expenditures. They wanted to take state of the art technology to their fan base, providing them with a vehicle to protect their money and control and track their spending with all instant alerts to their cell phone."

Still, spending money was the message at Tuesday's party. Shortly after arriving at Pacha, Kim tweeted a message to her more than five million followers: "Thx 4 coming out 2 support our Kardashian MasterKard! Let's go shopping!"´╗┐
