This may not come to a surprise to some of us considering reality shows haven’t really been real for a longtime now. The fights get more and more outrageous and we come to figure that people’s lives can not be this full of drama. It just seems like reality shows are out to out-drama each other now. Their is no difference with the hit reality show on E! “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”.
With the new series coming up soon, we can expect new and exciting adventures with the Kardashian clan. Including a fight over silverware?? TMZ (a.k.a The Kardashian Clan Hunters) talked to a source who works on the show that revealed the outline for one of the episodes where Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian get into a big spill over Kim stealing silverware from Kris’ house. An angry Kris confronts Kim at her and hubby’s Kanye West home to express to Kim her frustration. Kim threatens to have Kris thrown off the property and then slams the door in her face. Kris then throws a rock at an upstairs windows and the scripts reads that is the cue for Baby North West to cry. Ends scene.
The “drama” continues. Real or fake, it still sounds pretty entertaining…. and funny.

Khalena Knox may be a Beauty Queen, but she is definitely no push over! As you may recall, our resident “Brainy Beauty Queen” is one of the contestants on We TV’s new hit dating show, Match Made In Heaven. Along with nineteen other young women, she has been competing for the affections of former NFL Star turned real estate tycoon, Shawn Bullard. He has been dubbed “America’s First Black Bachelor,” but the antics in the third episode of his show reached a fever pitch as Khalena and another contestant, Dolly, faced off!
The drama began when Shawn’s mother, Maggie, arrives to help him weed out the “hussies,” (as she so affectionately refers to some of the looser contestants). She becomes rather hawkish immediately, compelling the girls to walk a thin line when she is around. However, things went awry while Khalena was on her date with Shawn. Apparently, the ladies were offered apples, which if bitten would immediately end Khalena’s date. Dolly and another contestant, Alexandria, bit their apples and the date ended with the pool collapsing, sending both Shawn and Khalena into the mud just as they were about to share their first kiss. “I was pissed! You know I’m not from the ‘hood but when I hear a loud bang I know to get down…I didn’t know what was going on…Besides he and I have so much in common and for them to do that…ugh!” Unsurprisingly, Khalena returned to the house angry and confronted Dolly when she came forward as one of her saboteurs. “I was really shocked that she would do something like that…just the day before she and I were having a deep conversation and she opened up about her past…”
