ESPN announcer Dave Pasch mocks Kim Kardashian Twitter post with hilarious photo

Dave Pasch Bill Walton

Kim Kardashian inadvertently set off a funny trend on Twitter Tuesday with a post showing off her wealth and good fortune.

Kardashian boasted about how she was able to celebrate her 40th birthday with a trip to a private island. Here was the Twitter post:

The post did not go over well for many reasons. Most notably, boasting about how great things are going for you while so many people in the world are struggling leads to resentment.

Many people mocked the post by using it as a template in which they included a funny photo.

ESPN announcer Dave Pasch had the best photo of all. He shared a picture of his broadcasting partner, Bill Walton, dressed up with a grass skirt.

That was a winner.

PFT Commenter nailed it too with an old photo of NFL coaches.

New Jersey’s Twitter account also had a winner:

Well played by all, especially Pasch.

Video: Kim Kardashian boos sister’s ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson at Lakers-Cavs game

Kim Kardashian Kanye West

Kim Kardashian put family first on Monday night.

Kardashian attended Monday’s Cleveland Cavaliers-Los Angeles Lakers game at Staples Center. Kardashian actually got into things at one point in the game and stood up to boo Tristan Thompson when he was at the free throw line. Here’s the video, via @itsnotapril on Twitter.

Why the bad blood between Kim and Tristan?

Tristan dated Kim’s sister, Khloe, from 2016-2019. The two have a daughter together, but there were multiple reports about Tristan cheating on Khloe.

Kim definitely didn’t forget and made sure to make her voice heard on Monday. As a bonus, the Lakers beat the Cavs 128-99. Thompson went 1-of-2 at the line.

Kim Kardashian has no clue who Mike Tirico is

Mike Tirico

Mike Tirico told an absolute gem of a story while calling Novak Djokovic’s match at the US Open on Tuesday night.

All the stars were out at the tennis center in Flushing to watch Serena Williams face sister Venus in their quarterfinals match Tuesday night. Presidential candidate Donald Trump was there, as were Oprah, Aziz Ansari, Nas and Joe Jonas among others. Alas, so was Kim Kardashian. And Tirico, who was calling play-by-play action for ESPN, had a little encounter with the reality TV star.

Tirico shared the story during Nole’s match, and it’s one sports fans will enjoy.

“I was leaving a suite … I had to visit some folks … I was walking around and no joke, Kim Kardashian walked out of the suite next to the one that I was in,” said Tirico. “And she looked at me and she said, ‘do you know how to get to the Emirates Airlines suite? You look like you know what you’re talking about.'”

Tirico then was asked a few questions by his on-air partners and shared that Kardashian had no idea who he was.

“(Kardashian) had no concept of what I do or who I am. I said ‘it’s over that way.’ She found it.

“There were no cameras around so it was not a reality show moment. I guess it didn’t happen. If it’s not on a Kardashian reality show, I guess it really didn’t happen,” Tirico lamented.

To be fair, Tirico in a suit does look like a guy who would know things. She probably saw him with a mic clipped on his lapel and thought he looked like a concierge or secret service member. But come on, Kim. Didn’t you at least watch some “Monday Night Football” when you dated Reggie Bush? And you didn’t recognize Tirico? Shame on you!

Kim Kardashian rents out Staples Center for Kanye West’s birthday


Kanye West celebrated his 38th birthday on Monday, and the venue for the party was pretty impressive thanks to his wife Kim Kardashian.

Kardashian blindfolded West and drove him to the Staples Center, which she had rented out for the evening. When Kanye arrived, he saw that a bunch of his buddies were wearing basketball uniforms and had been split into two teams — East vs. West.

You can probably guess which team Kanye joined.

Washington Wizards star John Wall joined the festivities, though he did not participate in the game. That could have something to do with his wrist injury or the fact that the teams wouldn’t be fair if Wall played for one.

This was obviously Kim K.’s way of paying Kanye back for that time he rented out an MLB ballpark to celebrate her birthday and propose to her.

Kim Kardashian mocks herself in T-Mobile Super Bowl commercial (Video)

Every year, at least one athlete or celebrity mocks his or herself in a Super Bowl commercial. Kim Kardashian will be doing the honors for Super Bowl XLIX.

Kim K. has teamed up with T-Mobile for an ad spot that promotes the wireless provider’s new “Data Stash” program. As you can see, Kardashian encourages people to save their data to they can see more of her obnoxious selfies. As much as I hate to admit it, it’s actually a pretty clever idea.


Last year, it was Tim Tebow mocking himself for his NFL career not going as planned.

Barry Bonds, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West walk into a bar …

Barry Bonds Kim Kardashian Kanye West

Game 5 of the World Series happened on Sunday night in San Francisco, but I just can’t get past this photo Barry Bonds posted to Twitter (yes, Barry Bonds is on Twitter) of himself with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Who knew Kimye were baseball fans? And does anyone else find it odd that of the trio, Bonds is the one smiling and showing teeth? I mean BARRY BONDS of all people was giving a huge smile! The heck? Maybe Kim was just caught a second before she could break into her staged b-face/grin thing.

And how bad is the company if Barry freaking Bonds is the most enjoyable person in a group? You would think Kanye would be a little happier about taking a photo with a man he’s named a song after:

New York Post calls Kim Kardashian and Kanye West jackasses in wedding write-up

Kimye wedding

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got married over the weekend in Italy. I’m sure the news really doesn’t matter to you, but you probably already knew about it since it was pretty hard to be a living, breathing human being and not hear about it in some capacity.

Anyway, we wouldn’t have mentioned the wedding unless Kris Humphries crashed it as a hangglider or something, but then we saw this write-up about the wedding by the New York Post.

Our friend Andy Gray of Sports Illustrated Vault fame posted this blurb on Twitter Sunday and it went viral for obvious reasons:

NY Post Kimye wedding

That was so, so strong. Jackasses? Check. Sex-tape star? Check. Egotist? Check. Tacky enough for reality TV? Check.

I can’t think of a more honest description of the events. And I don’t know anyone who can’t get down with that. A little harsh? Perhaps, but who doesn’t share the sentiment?

Kim Kardashian shows off engagement ring Kanye West gave her at AT&T Park


Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may be celebrities who are worth millions of dollars, but they got engaged on Monday night in the same way so many sports fans have before them. Well, kind of. Actually, not really.

Kardashian’s celebrated her 33rd birthday on Monday, and Kanye threw her more than just a birthday bash. The famous rap artist rented out AT&T park, the home of the San Francisco Giants, and proposed to Kim. Several friends and family were in attendance to take part in the celebration.

As Yahoo! OMG! pointed out, Kim’s hairstylist Clyde Haygood was one of the people who attended the event and he posted a photo of the 15-carat diamond Kanye gave his future wife. Hollywood publicist Tracy Nguyen shared a video of the orchestra Kanye hired playing an instrumental of Keri Hilson’s “Knock You Down.”


Kim Kardashian looking like a Beyonce clone

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian posted a selfie on Instagram this week that pretty much set the internet on fire. And like everything that comes to Kim, people are sharing their opinions.

You have some people complaining that Kim shouldn’t be posting revealing pictures now that she’s a mother. You have some saying that she looks great for a woman who just gave birth. You have others jealous of her body and saying that she has too much back.

But that’s not what concerns us.

After seeing the now-infamous butt-selfie Kim posted, I took a look at her Instagram account and couldn’t believe what I saw. Apparently I totally missed that Kimmie dyed her hair, changed her lip and skin color, and styled herself to look like Beyonce. I mean this girl is a straight Beyonce clone now. Tell me you don’t see it.

When I sent that picture to Del, he thought it was Beyonce. I had to take a second look to make sure who it was.

What a knockoff.

Kris Humphries reportedly selling engagement ring he gave Kim Kardashian

Kim-Kardashian-engagement-ringKris Humphries is looking to get back something that he lost as a result of his failed marriage to Kim Kardashian. That something appears to be money — in the form of an engagement ring.

According to the Daily Mail, Humphries may have reached a deal to auction off the 16-carat engagement ring he bought for Kardashian at an upcoming Christie’s auction in New York. It is not known for certain if the ring belongs to Humphries, but the description perfectly matches the ring that Humphries gave Kardashian before their fake marriage that duped us all ended 72 days later.

The Lorraine Schwartz ring is expected to bring between $300,000 to $500,000, though initial reports claimed it cost around $2 million.

The item is listed as the “property of a gentleman” and includes a 16.21-carat diamond with the same rectangular cut as the one Kim K. was given. The main stone is surrounded by a 1.8-carat diamond on either side, which adds up to just under 20 carats. The ring Humphries gave Kardashian was said to be over 20 carats, but hey, that also could have been a lie.

For what it’s worth, the auction house also said that a portion of the money the ring brings will be donated to charity by the owner.

We don’t know for sure if the ring belongs to Humphries, but we do know he was reportedly seeking $7 million from Kardashian earlier this year in addition to an admission that their marriage was a sham. It doesn’t appear that they ever squared up, so maybe selling the ring is Humphries’ backup plan.
