Kim Kardashian admits she's 'totally' self-absorbed
It's not you, it's me. That pretty much sums up Kim Kardashian West's perfect response to a Twitter user this week who tagged her in a post asking if it seems like Kim — creator of a book called "Selfish" — might be just a wee bit obsessed with herself. "Is it me, or is @KimKardashian Sooo Self-absorbed.. even when she's saying Nothing.. lol.. & I Like the Kardashians," the user wrote. Kim's response? "No it's not you, I totally am!"

Did Miranda Lambert just throw some shade at her ex, Blake Shelton?
In Marie Claire last fall, Gwen Stefani described Oklahoma — where her boyfriend Blake Shelton has a ranch — as a "kind of perfect" getaway for her, Blake and her three boys. Blake's ex, Miranda Lambert, is a bit less fond of the place. During her show in Greenville, South Carolina, last week, she apparently changed a lyric from her song "Little Red Wagon" that originally said "I live in Oklahoma" to "I got the hell out of Oklahoma." Judging from the applause that followed in a clip of the moment Us Weekly caught on Twitter, the audience was all for the change. "I got the hell out of Oklahoma " akskkssk😂😂😂😂😂 @mirandalambert did THAT," wrote the user who shared the video. Miranda and Blake split in 2015.

Brandi Glanville writes an open letter to Gerard Butler about his 'WWHL' comments
Brandi Glanville's not quite done responding to Gerard Butler's "I didn't know her last name when we hooked up" dis. The actor implied he was embarrassed to have had a fling with "The Real Housewives" star during a visit to "Watch What Happens Live" last week. Brandi responded by slamming Gerard on Twitter. Now, it seems she's had more time to think. And rant. "So I'm not exactly sure when misogyny became so hip, cool and accepted but what I will tell you is that I won't f—— stand for it anymore! I'm talking to you, Gerard Butler!" she writes in a new blog post. She goes on to dis his career before getting into the "WWHL" segment. "… Your behavior the other night, publicly acting as if you were embarrassed to have ever met me or had relations with me as if I were some horrid decrepit troll is not only disgusting but unacceptable. #Timesup on this kind of behavior," she writes before offering him some advice. "… Respect the women you invite into your bed and into your life. Whether you know their last name or not! Whether they are famous or not! Just be a proper human being," she continues. Later in the long post, she asks, "why do you think you are such a damn prize and what the f— would have changed if you had known my last name??" Finally, she rehashes her own appearance on "WWHL" years ago when Andy asked her who the biggest star she'd slept with was. "At that time you were kind of a big thing so I said your name. I then was asked on a scale from 1-10 what would I rate you as a lover. I very kindly said an 11. I was completely caught off guard obviously not expecting any of these questions and the moment after I answered them I regretted it," she writes. So the rating of an 11 I gave you as a lover was a knee jerk reaction peace offering for having blurted out your name. I could have actually just told the truth." The post goes on to explain how she never wanted to be famous and how she's now "filled with insecurities, trust issues and doubt." She also points out that she didn't pony up her last name when the two met because "When I'm out at a party and someone walks up to me and says hi what's your name, like most people I simply say 'hi I'm Brandi nice to meet you'." Brandi concludes after accusing Gerard of looking down on television stars. "I am now embarrassed to have ever known you," she writes, adding, "I think you suck and my dad wants to kick your a–."
