LA King interning at Conanan during NHL lockout

With the NHL locked out, players are looking for work where they can. Unfortunately for LA Kings forward Dustin Penner it doesn’t always mean getting paid. After winning the Stanely Cup in June, Penner is now an unpaid intern for the Conan O’Brien show. But this isn’t Penner’s first encounter with Conan. In July, Penner and O’Brien were in a Twitter feud, when @ConanOBrien tweeted: “It’s quiet today in LA. Reminds me of the day the Kings won the Stanley Cup.” Penner chimed back, @Dustinpenner25 “I guess being on TBS you would know what silence sounds like…” no wonder Penner wasn’t paid

Kris Humphries dad speaking out on divorce

Kris Humphries dad is coming to the defense of his son after his 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian. William Humphries tells Life & Style,“There was never a discussion about it — it just came out of nowhere and blindsided Kris. How could someone do that? Kris was completely surprised. The news was already published before he found out!”

While Kardashian has spoken publicity about her divorce in an Australian television interview and in a blog post, she is not happy Kris is voicing his opinion, “Kris told me that Kim was texting him a lot, but he wouldn’t respond. They did speak briefly the day the split was announced — but only because Kim was apparently pissed that Kris had released his own statement.”

Over the weekend Kardashian flew to Minneapolis to meet with her estranged husband, “It’s not a nice situation. No matter how you look at it, he’s going through a divorce,” William said.

According to the New York Post,Kardashian has apologised to the Humphries family for the “media attention and hurt this has caused them,” as also “not calling them to explain before she filed for divorce.” As irony would have it, Kardashianis now working on her first major movie titled Marriage Counselor.
