Kim Kardashian under fire for tweet trick?

Kim Kardashian has been accused of using a tricky tweet to help her brother Rob hang in there on "Dancing With the Stars."

A former "DWTS" contestant herself, Kim K. tweeted to her 10 million plus followers after Monday's show, "OMG I have @JustinBieber 's phone #!!!! 800 8683402! CALL HIM! He's taking calls for the next hour!!!!"

Perhaps there were some people who thought that teen singer Bieber could be reached via a 1-800 line, and only for an hour, because RadarOnline claims it's ruffled the feathers of Rob's fellow contestants, who remain unnamed. (The mirror ball trophy is not to be trifled with.)

However, Kim did follow up to clarify that she was totally j/k'ing. "Ok guys obviously I'm joking, that's not Justin's #! But seriously call & vote for @RobKardashian & @CherylBurke 800 8683402!!! Xoxo" she wrote that same day.

Whether Kim's tweet actually got more people to vote for her brother than would have anyway isn't known, but he did get to stay an extra week in the competition - Chaz Bono was the one booted from "DWTS" on Tuesday.

    Seems like Rob and the middle sister (not Kim or Khloe) are the only somewhat normal in the family. Kim is obviously an overexposed reality personality and Khloe has started to show her true colors the last few years – she is just an attention starved sister with no real talent except to whine, complain and make trouble for everyone. Wrap those two with their mother who is as manipulative as the come and you have a very disfunctional family. Does Bruce even have his balls anymore? How can he sit back and watch this mess happen around him day after day?

    Kim K is a 30 something women with a 16 year old I.Q. The only reason many follow this family is because it makes us feel good to see money can't buy u talent, morals, or happyness. This family have sold there selves to the devil. We on lookers enjoy the fact u can take a family out of the trailer park but you cant take the park out of them. We are just waiting for all of this to blow up in there faces.

      don't count on it- – remember a no talent idiot got into Harvard & Yale & later the White House. Sometimes in America the talentless offspring of the wealthy get what they did not earn or deserve.

    Kim Kardashian is disgusting. A twit. She should be accountable for her actions. Winning votes in an underhanded trick won't save her brother. He's not as strong as the other contestants. After her humiliating announcement today, I hope E-TV bounces the whole Kardashian clan off the air. Maybe she needs a new show "Kim in Counseling". This is her 2nd failed marriage, but it was not a real union to begin with. It was about money and ratings. I am never tuning in again.

      Don't confuse her, Kim cannot handle words with more than 4 letters. She will have to call an assistant to do that for her.

      It is a sad comment on American youth that they follow no talent trash like the Kardashians. I hope they dry up soon- who the heck would want to "keep up" w/ a ho ho ho fat ass freak show???

      @madhatter- no need to trash "retards"- nothing wrong w/ them like there is w/ anyone named Kardashian. BTW, "retard" is not PC

      I finally figured out why all those Kardashians, Paris Hilton, Brittney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Lindsey Lohan and on ad nauseum have those little dogs they tote around like fashion accessories- they are like portable brains for them cause they don't have any in their heads LOL.

    Can we just send the entire family away to somewhere with NO CELL SIGNAL!! Between all the guest hosting appearances as of late, the WEDDING OF THE CENTURY (in their mind anyway), the sweet 16 birthday of one of them etc., I am sick to death of them. They are all money-hungry, soul sucking, idiots.

    Every1 has "stuffed the ballot box" for their family member! Sarah Palin did it for Bristol! It goes on with all the shows that allows the audience to vote by phone! It only works for a moment, though, not enough to give the trophy to a lousy dancer!!

    I totally agree the Kardashians are talentless trash, but how come she has so many Twitter followers? It is sad when what I assume are primarily teens look up to garbage like her. I don't watch DWTS as it's lame trash of has beens and wanna be "stars". If I want to watch talented dancers, there are certainly places to do that LOL!

    This whole "reality TV" genre amazes me as it has produced so many "stars" who have no actual talent or are mediocre at best and many of them can't seem to stay out of trouble w/ the law, drugs & the plastic surgeons office. I doubt many of them will last for long, but it is sad the kids admire them so much & use them as role models.

      I want the question answered, WHO the hell are the Kardashians?? I know he defended OJ. What in the world are these people running on? Not talent for sure. Over madeup faces, fat butts, over indulgence, flagrant excessiveness, perfect removal of all the body hair their ethnic bodies produce??? WHAT??? 72 days? Just about time for the third body waxing.

    Please....people make such a big to do over everything. If anyone's family member was on the show they'd want them to win over anyone else and would try to help them out in the process. Just because Kim is famous doesn't make her any different.

      Sure, we'd want them to win, but wanting someone to win doesn't mean you go out and cheat, and that's what this was - cheating pure and simple. Glad I don't watch DWTS. This kind of stuff would drive me crazy.

      I agree. People are making way too big a deal over this. Call it cheating, call it whatever you want, but no one can make anyone else vote. It's free will, and if they vote because someone told them to, they would have voted no matter who it was that told them to vote.

      Oh geeze, get over it. No worse than on American Idol Season 8 when machines were given to Kris Allen fans so that each phone vote was worth several times more than single vote...AT&T was behind it and nothing was done to them. I am not a Kim K. fan but I am smart enough to realize that alot of these shows are popularity contests anyway and it doesn't matter how the voting goes.
