Kim Kardashian blames cameras’ presence for incident with drunk woman

A woman threw a drink on Kim Kardashian during filming of her new spin-off E! reality series, Kim and Kourtney Take New York, late last week.

On her blog, Kim wrote that “Kourtney, Scott, Khloe and I went out to a bar to have a fun night on Khloe’s last night in NYC. A drunk male fan came up to me and asked to take a picture, and I obliged, but his girlfriend, who was also drunk, got a little out of hand. Luckily I had Scott and Khloe there to protect me.” (TMZ has photos of the aftermath.)

Us Weekly reports that she might have left a few things out. The fan, a source told the magazine, “was groping her, trying to pull her close. Scott got really defensive of Kim when the guy groped her…things escalated and Scott punched him. Security came and broke it up.”

Kim blamed the presence of cameras: “when people see the cameras rolling, they try to get attention and I guess that’s what happened when the drunk girl saw that we were filming.”

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
