Would Kim K. be famous without the Internet?

Ask any one of their collective 21 million Twitter followers and they'll tell you: the Kardashian sisters are the reigning Queens of Celebrity Internet Gossip. (The latest example? The photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West holding hands and attending restaurant openings.)

The sisters themselves are fully aware of that, to the point that Kim doesn't think they would be as famous without the Web.

"I think a lot of our fanbase, and a lot of our connection with people is Internet-based. I think the Internet has brought on a different kind of celebrity," Kim K. told Paper magazine in a recent interview. "We are very well aware of who we are, and what our place is. We are so active on Twitter, on our Facebook pages, we are writing back, we are connecting. We enjoy it."

Jon Voight: No updates on Jolie-Pitt wedding plans

If you’re waiting for Jon Voight to give fans the 4-1-1 on Angelina Jolie’s upcoming wedding to Brad Pitt, don’t hold your breath.

The actor told Us Weekly that his once-estranged daughter has not shared any of the details of her pending wedding with him - in fact, she didn’t even tell him she was getting hitched.

"It was very nice I thought,” Voight said of hearing about the couple’s happy news in the press. “If they are happy - if they're going to have a wedding - it's wonderful."

Jaleel White makes a comeback on 'DWTS'

Monday was "Motown Night" on "Dancing with the Stars," and that meant only one thing: all of the songs performed on the show were going to be somewhat old.

The celebrity dancers were introduced, and, for some reason, the camera was focused on a horn player when Donald Driver stepped out. I guess that's what happens when you hire a Chicago Bears fan to operate the cameras.

The eight remaining teams were set to dance to Motown tunes as performed by such musical legends as Smokey Robinson, Martha Reeves and The Temptations. Following that, all eight couples were to compete in a dance marathon for bonus points.

Unauthorized Simon Cowell tell-all may get sequel

A juicy unauthorized biography about “X Factor” head honcho Simon Cowell has hit the streets – and, according to its author, it packs more fact than fiction.

Tom Bower, the writer behind the allegedly true-life tale “Sweet Revenge,” told the U.K.'s ITV1 on Monday that he actually had the former “American Idol” host’s cooperation in writing the book up to a certain point, according to the Telegraph.

"I flew with him a lot to America on his private jet, I was on his yacht, visited him often in his house in LA," Bower said. "I got to know him very well and we got on very well. In the end I reported what I found."
