*Kim Kardashian hasn’t spoken publicly since she filed for divorce from her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, on Oct. 31. But she thanked her supporters Monday on a return to her blog.
In a new post on her Celebuzz blog titled “Thanks To My Loyal Blog Dolls,” which shows the star blowing a kiss, Kardashian announced her return to regular updates.
“Hi everyone! I just wanted to thank you guys for all your support these last two weeks,” she writes. “I took a break from blogging for a while, but I’ve missed you guys so much and I want to start sharing my updates with you all again.”
“I’ve been reading all your comments on here and, as always, my loyal blog dolls have been nothing but supportive,” she continued. “You all know who you are, so thank you! I love you guys. Kim xo”
The last few weeks have been filled with the fallout from Kardashian’s quickie divorce filing, the abandonment of her ill-timed Australian promotional tour of the Kardashian Kollection for Sears, and disapproval over her casting in “Tyler Perry’s The Marriage Counselor.”
*(Via Celebuzz) Disney fans may recognize the handsome Roshon Fegan as Sander Loyer from the Camp Rock film franchise. The adorable 19-year-old does more than just act alongside Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers – he also sings, dances and produces music. Watch out for this triple threat!
What’s your character like on your new Disney show, Shake It Up?
I play Ty Blue on Shake It Up, I’m the big brother of Rocky Blue and really the big brother of the whole cast, in real life and on screen. I’m just the older smooth brother, I’m not really dancing on the show but I’m more just dancing freely on the street and for the ladies and I just kind of help everyone out and mess up some thing on the way like big brothers do.
So the other cast members look up to you as a big brother – does that have something to do with being older or your previous Disney experience?
I think it’s all of that. I think it’s really because everyone else is really young – like 13 and 14 – and I’m 19, turning 20 this year, plus I’ve been with Disney for a while now so they kind of look up to everything that I’ve done.
What’s it like working with a younger cast, do you ever wish there were more people your own age on set?
It’s fun, I think it’s great. It’s good energy. One of the reason why the show is doing so well is because it’s really getting to the young people and it has a lot of young vibrant energy to it. Plus, I’m kind of young myself so it’s not a problem.
Is it true that you choreographed a dance number on Shake It Up?
Yeah. For the “Zombies” episode I choreographed a dance number that they do on the screens for the zombie part. It was fun, I kind of put it together real quick, they wanted something simple that all the kids could do and something that the 9-year-olds could catch on to real quick. I just threw something together real fast and it came out great, it was real fun.
Is dancing a big passion?
All together it’s a big passion of mine. I love dance, I love to write music, produce music. I’m really deep into music and acting and everything, it all just kind of works together so I love it all.
So that makes you a triple threat!
Yeah, that’s right. I’m three in a row.
Your new song “I Am” just came out – how did that come together?
I put it all together. I wrote the song and then I actually created the track to it and produced it up and when the video came around my dad [Roy Fegan] actually directed it and I choreographed the dance number that’s in it. I had a lot of my friends and fans that showed up so I had to come up with [a dance number] on the spot so I put a nice little dance piece to it.
Your dad is an established actor, did he give you any tips about how to break into the biz?
It was more than just tips it was kind of the reason and why I was doing it in the first place [laughs]. He’s been acting and directing and producing and writing music and all kind of stuff since I was little so it was just kind of like, ‘Well, dad’s doing it, I guess I’m doing it’.”
I did stop [acting] for a minute when I was 6 or something, I don’t remember, I think my brother and sister they weren’t into and then I think I was like, ‘Yeah, I don’t want to do this,’ and then like a year later I was like ‘I think I want to do this.’ He was kind of fighting it for a minute too, he was like, ‘You don’t want to do this, you’re not sure that you want to do this,’ and then I had to convince him that I did. That all paid off so, that was cool.
It must be an amazing to do something on your own and have it be all from you.

*Congrats go out to EURweb columnist/blogger Monica cost. Monica, whose weekly column/blog, “Living in the Land of Make Believe,” was asked by the folks over at pop site celebuzz.com to advise poor little Justin Beiber and his new girlfriend, Selena Gomez, on how to deal with disappointed and pissed off fans.
In case you’re not up on what’s going down …
Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber recently broke millions of young girls’ hearts when he publicly confirmed his romance with pop star Selena Gomez by sneaking in some PDAs at the Vanity Fair Oscars party on Sunday. Justin’s hardcore fans aired their grievances over “Jelena” on Twitter and some even went so far to make threats on the Disney star (Gomez)’s life.

Monica says that it can be hard for male teen stars to get into relationships with women (famous or not famous) since they are often put “in a position where the fans feel that they are in a place of ownership” over the celeb.
Justin’s fans are an important and involved part of his life and he actively pursues an engaged relationship with his Beliebers through Twitter and Facebook, so it is easy to see why many of his fans would feel like they “own” the young star.
Monica also explains that Justin and Selena’s relationship may prove to problematic for some fans since she is older (18) and he is still viewed a “the young teen heartthrob.”
As for how they should address the Twitter hate, Monica suggests that Justin make the first move.
“He has to say something first,” Monica explains. “I would have him address it on Twitter but not in a deliberate [separate press] interview since it would give the haters a voice. Selena should lay low for awhile.”
“He should say something like, ‘I just want the fans to know that I still love them and I’m still here’,” says Monica. However, Monica notes that Justin shouldn’t shy away from the fact that he is “acting like a normal teenager” and getting into a relationship with girl. That’s what teenagers do, after all!
Hmm, sounds like interesting advice. Read MORE of Monica has to say at Celebuzz!.

*Keri Hilson is back with her sophomore album, “No Boys Allowed,” after debuting her first album a couple of years ago. She spoke with Celebuzz about what keeps her music fresh and what she intends to do in the future.
“Sometimes you do get stumped,” says Hilson. “You’re like, ‘Man, I’ve talked about that.’ But no one has heard me deliver it in the way that I deliver it so sometimes I am talking about a subject that I’ve written about for someone else before, but I deliver it differently.”
Just in time for Christmas, “No Boys Allowed” will be released on Dec. 21, and expect collaborations with J. Cole, Nelly, Kanye West, Rick Ross, and Chris Brown.
Hilson is excited, yet also pretty calm about her second album.
“I am in a place where I’m a lot less concerned with how things are received. That mindset for me right now is a gift,” she said. “I don’t feel the pressure to be liked or loved by everyone. I can’t please everyone. You’re not going to win that battle, even when you feel like you are doing something everyone will like. People have something to say no matter what, so I may as well be myself.”
*We bet Kanye or Taylor Swift never imagined it would come to this.
Celebuzz is reporting that the legendary confrontation between Kanye West and Taylor Swift is being turned into a … porn parody.
Apparently somebody thinks it a good idea. And that somebody is porn studio Vivid Entertainment’s founder/co-chairman Steve Hirsche.
“We’re always analyzing news stories for their movie potential,” Hirsch said. “The Kanye/Taylor feud has high visibility, is filled with passion and is something we believe that fans of adult films would enjoy. We’re reviewing script concepts and definitely want to include that famous moment at the VMA awards. We plan to go into production in the next two months.”
Previously, Hirsche told Hollywood Life:
“Of course, our take would be in parody form and could heat up the relationship between the two.”
