Nick Lachey basically says Kim Kardashian has always been a terrible famewhore

Here is the cringe-worthy cover for Nick Lachey’s new album, “A Father’s Lullaby”. I mean… it’s not like Nick has a lot going on, I guess, and why not try to shill some baby-themed products now that he’s a father? I still cringed though. It’s so… tacky. The shilling for a piece of baby pie, it’s just gotten out of hand. On the bright side, though, Nick’s son Camden is super-cute. He got his dad’s eyes!

Anyway, I’m talking about Nick Lachey because he threw some shade on Kim Kardashian. Do you even remember the beginning of the Kardashian stuff? I do. When Kim started out, she was friends with Paris Hilton, she was a “stylist” and she was the first person Nick Lachey went out with after he split with Jessica Simpson. And we knew about Nick and Kim almost instantly because there were photos of them together, like, on their first date. So what does Nick have to say about it after all these years?

Did Kim Kardashian use Nick Lachey to get famous? The 98 Degrees singer, who briefly dated the reality star right before she became a household name with the release of her sex tape, suggests in the May 2013 issue of Details that Kim was responsible for their movie date ending up in the media – and has the details.

“In Kardashian Konfidential, Kim traces her fame to a date with you in 2006 that showed up in the tabloids the next day. Can we blame you for her ubiquity?” the magazine asks the new dad.

“That’s one way to interpret it,” he responds. “Let’s just say this: We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside. [Laughs] There are certain ways to play this game, and some people play it well.”

“She also had some help from that sex tape,” the magazine writer added.

“Yeah, well that was already in the can,” Nick responded.

[From Radar]

Nick is right about the timeline – Kim had already made the sex tape when she went out with Nick. She was trying to associate herself with a high-profile guy so she would already have some name-recognition when she dropped the sex tape. Now, do I think Nick is shading Kim? Of course. But he doesn’t sound pissed off or nasty about it. It sounds like he’s just sharing an amusing anecdote about Crazy Hollywood. Besides, it’s not like this is BRAND NEW INFORMATION. Breaking news: Kim Kardashian is now and has always been a famewhore! SHOCK.

Here are some photos of Kim out and about last night. I can’t believe she’s wearing jeans! Jeans that fit!

    And water is wet, and grass is green, and the sky is blue…

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      +1, but that baby is so cute!

      • jaye says:

        Honestly I barely read the post I was so enamored by how cute that baby is.

      • Hakura says:

        So cute that it reminds of the Gerber Baby, right down to the precious photogenic expression to the huge bright blue eyes.

    • aims says:

      Exactly! This is a girl who has to have a camera crew around her 24/7.

    • Tiffany27 says:

      And I’ve started my Iron Man 3 countdown.

    • Anna says:

      “miraculously there were 30 photographers outside” – GAH that stinks of Wagon. She certainly plays the game well.

      • Eve says:

        I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but here’s why I think Kardashian is still “better” than Remora Wagon: at least Kardashian is famous for herself (yes, she’s useless and has ridden other people’s coattails but she’s managed to make a name for herself).

        Now let me get a bucket because I have to throw up.

      • Anna says:

        Eve –

        I want to make love to you right now <3

      • Eve says:


        Hey, maybe we could invite Cumby to join us! No, no, scratch that!!!

      • Anna says:

        WOW I’ve made you generous 🙂 Gosh, he’s probably into some freaky stuff, huh…that video you linked, it, um, left an impression. A slightly frightening one. Does he ALWAYS play a sociopath?

      • Eve says:

        But he doesn’t play a sociopath in “To the Ends of the Earth”…*scratches head*

        That was the link I posted on that other thread, non?

        I think Cumberbatch plays a sociopath in only one movie: the rapist creep in “Atonement”.

      • Hakura says:

        @Eve – “(yes, she’s useless and has ridden other people’s coattails…)

        Among other things.

        I’m sorry, just couldn’t help myself. *offers to dispose of ‘throw up’ bucket as act of repentance*

      • Eve says:

        ” Among other things.”


      • Anna says:

        @Eve –

        Well, the way he disposed of that girl, after some below the deck hanky-panky…And he’s a self-proclaimed high-functioning sociopath in Sherlock…and not looking particularly friendly in STID… 🙂

      • Eve says:

        *slaps forehead*

        Yes, STiD! And I’ve seen the “high-functioning sociopath” (.gifs, pictures) from Sherlock.

      • Anna says:

        WHOA WHOA WHOA Are you saying you havent actually WATCHED Sherlock? You call dibs on Cumby without having watched his Masterpiece??? Are you even allowed to do this? SO WRONG!!!

        PS – also Assange?

      • Eve says:

        Yes, I am allowed (HOW. DARE. YOU. even question this).

        Actually, the fact I haven’t watched Sherlock but still fell in love with Cumberbatch shows even more that not only I can claim him as my CB husband, but that I’m worthy of the title: many only have the hots for him BECAUSE of Sherlock. I didn’t need the extra help from the BBC series for that.

        I’m *thisclose* to watching it though (I’m depending on the help of a friend).

        P.S.: As for Assange, I don’t buy the sexual assault allegations against him so I wouldn’t call him a sociopath. Entitled, arrogant, douche…but not a sociopath.

      • Anna says:

        So…. now I’m kind of scared. If you’re this into him NOW, what the hell is gonna happen to you after you watch Sherlock?! You might have to be physically restrained 🙂

        As for Assange, I’d actually say that the it’s all the megalomaniacal stuff not related to the criminal charges that showcases some s.p. tendencies. And I’m actually a fan of his work!

      • Eve says:

        “If you’re this into him NOW, what the hell is gonna happen to you after you watch Sherlock?!”

        I wonder about that myself…o_O

    The Kardashians have always been horrible. Can’t wait for karma to bite them in the ass.

    • ilovejapanesefood says:

      Hahaha. Me thinks that Bruce should divorce kri$$ and get the custody of the girls. So they can live a normal life. And he gets to live a dignified life. Kri$$ is only interested in da money. Bruce could see that the girls are out of the public eye and go to school. Save them while you can. And kri$$ can pay him alimony. The others can make (stupid) decisions for themselves. They are grown ups. The young girls are minors.
      I don’t know how this will sound, but I am pretty sure that Kardashian would not have tolerated krap. They have his name and they disrespect him. He came across as a man who cared for his family. Come on, comparing how they smell downstairs, the sex tape, infidelity, drinking problems, so many embarrasing situations. Shameful. Bruce should get the girls and run. Kardashian cant do anything for his children anymore, but Bruce can.

      • Susie Q says:

        I’m pretty sure the younger ones don’t want a ‘normal’ life. Seems to me they love the attention already just like their older sisters and their mom. The attention whore gene seems built in.

      • Hakura says:

        @Susie Q – I’m pretty sure the younger of the 2 (the model?) had recently said (in a mag interview) how she really wished she could just be a normal kid.

        (Correct me if I’m wrong, though.)

    • Just Passing Through says:

      Karma’s going to have to have a pretty big mouth to bite that ass. 🙂

  3. SageM says:

    In other news, the Pope really is a Catholic!

  4. Jennifer says:

    Lol I dont know why but photographs of her pregnant makes me laugh. Its not because she is fat, all pregnant women have the right to be fat and not be critiqued. Its because i know she is obsessed with her image and probably hates that she is fat.

    Oh well i feel a bit sorry for her because i get the impression that kanye is not really there for her at all in this pregnancy. I think she wanted a high profile man and got pregnant way too early. Kanye is still too obsessed with his work. She will play second fiddle to his work.

    • Jen34 says:

      I know. Most pregnant women look great, regardless of their weight gain. She , however, consistently looks awful.

    • Nina W says:

      Just to clarify, pregnant women are not fat, it is not fat that makes women’s bodies change during pregnancy. I understand in our ridiculously shallow culture we have to judge women for fatness but pregnancy does not equal fat.

  5. sarah says:

    File this under “duh”.

    Anyhow, that baby!!! AWWWWWW.

  6. Alana says:

    Those photo shopped blue eyes on the album cover are scary! Who told him that was a good pic?

  7. CooCooCatchoo says:

    I have to say it: that baby is absolutely gorgeous 🙂

  8. Mew says:

    Horrible photoshopping on their eyes! They look like they’re going to burn right through everything with blue lasers… ugh..

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Yeah, not loving the ‘shopped eyes. And there’s absolutely no need to do that to such an adorable baby!

      • TG says:

        Agreed. the baby is super cute but those eyes are freaky.

        I also love how Kimmy got the judge to not allow filming of her trial but has no problem having her servant, oops sister, smell her vagina on national television and of course all the other vile things she has done. So if it is something she can’t control than she doesn’t want the cameras around. This way mommy dearest, also known as TMZ, can control the message and make the Humps look bad regardless of the outcome of the trial.

        I just love how this big dumb guy is bringing them down. they thought they could control him and it has backfired big time. So much so that Kanye has had to flee to France. I can’t believe Jay-Z and Beyonce would have anything to do with him now that he has stooped so low.

      • Malificent says:

        Yeah, it’s pretty ridiculous. I’m thinking that maybe the baby’s eyes haven’t turned yet. So they are probably still that murky dark blue-gray that newborns have. It’ll be pretty funny if the baby finally ends up with brown eyes like his mom — and then there will be this photo with the blue eyes.

      • Bubbles says:

        Smelling her vagina? Wait, what?!

      • Nina W says:

        Did you miss the episode where they compared snatch stench? Yeah so did I as I never watch the show anymore. I think I saw the clip on The Soup or some other show that was making fun of her. Truly gross.

    • TG says:

      Oh my god just thought of something maybe nick and Camden are nightstalkers or whatever those blue-eyed creatures are called on Game of Thrones.

  9. Zombie Shortcake says:

    Camden reminds me so much of how Suri looked on the cover of Vanity Fair.

  10. Quinn Parker says:

    What I wouldn’t give for this era of hyper-photoshopping to come to an end. GEEESSSH. Did Nick and the baby both need colored contacts?

    • Trek Girl says:

      Enhancing the eye color of subjects in a photo is nothing new. I’m not saying that means you have to like it, just that it’s not really unique to “this era of hyper-photoshopping”.

  11. Katie says:

    First of all, while Kim is the personification of the phase “famewhore,” ANYONE who has ever done a reality show needs to refrain from calling anyone else a famewhore. Secondly, he’s married to Vanessa Manillo (sp?) who’s also a famewhore. Oh, and he’s using his kid to get attention, so he’s a famewhore and a hypocrit.

    Stay out of it, Nick Lachey.

    • OhDear says:


      Not that the Kardashians are paragons of virtue, but they (and Lohan) are such easy targets. So it’s easy for someone to make a (usually not positive) comment about them to get in the press – for the most part, it’s not as if people are going to disagree.

      • JenD says:

        To be fair, he was asked about her in the interview. He didn’t randomly name drop Kim. He’s promoting his new CD and his tour with his band.

    • Katie says:

      *hypocrite. Ugh.

    • Jess says:

      How is Vanessa a famewhore? She’s NEVER in magazines or on the cover like his ex-wife Jessica. (Now she is the famewhore).

      You do realize Nick gave an interview where he states that when his son gets older they are leaving L.A. for good and moving back to Cincy because he wants his son to be near his grandparents and his uncles and cousins etc.

      Good for him for being such a family man.

      He seems to be one of the very few celebs with family values.

      Don’t know why you hate the man so much or his wife.

      • Katie says:

        Pointing out someone’s hypocrisy doesn’t mean you “hate” them. I just don’t participate in the ridiculous public whitewashing that occurs when someone pops out a kid.

        As much as it pains me to admit this, Jessica is a legitimate “star” – she made a name for herself as a singer, branched out into acting, and is now the name and face of a billion dollar clothing and accessories brand.

        Vanessa has tried several times to make a name for herself, and when her previous attempts didn’t work (see the “leaked” pictures of her and Lindsey Lohan scantily clad and playing with knives and her brief employment with (I think) MTV), she married a washed up 90s boybander and then got pregnant. She promptly moved up from D-list to C-list.

        Why don’t Nick and Vanessa move to Cincinnati now? Because they know they won’t get any attention at all, rather than the occasional attention they get now because they have a child.

      • anon33 says:

        A thousand times what Katie said. Mr. Lachey is no better than any Kardashian, he’s playing the exact same game…but he sucks at it. Baby or no.

      • Nina W says:

        I have to disagree, he, unlike Kim, had a successful career before his reality show. He may be clinging to that success now that it’s behind him but he still actually earned his fame legitimately.

  12. Kelly says:

    “Can’t wait for karma to bite them in the ass.”

    But when????

  13. doofus says:

    gracious, that baby is cute!

    and, though I can’t believe I’m saying this…KIM LOOKS GOOD in that ourfit.

    she should stick with the casual look for the rest of her pregnancy unless she’s got a formal event.

  14. Yelly says:

    He looks like Al Bundy in that photo. Nick, not the baby.

  15. YummyMummy says:

    Kim looks better but a darker wash jean would be kinder to her thighs!

  16. fabgrrl says:

    Does anyone else find it ironic that Lachey is calling KK a famewhore, while putting his own sweet baby boy on his album covers?

    • Trek Girl says:

      Putting your child on an album cover isn’t famewhoring. If one or more or the songs is about the child, then it’s appropriate.

      • Trek Girl says:

        I’ll emend my comment. It really wouldn’t matter if the songs were about children or not; there are many reasons why an artist would put their child on the cover of an album, and one find it difficult to accurately use the “famewhoring” label for most of those reasons.

    • Jess says:

      Please direct me to the exact quote where he actually calls Kim K a Famewhore.

      Do you honestly think he’s pimping his kid out for attention?????

      He wrote a an album for his son so why would his kid not be on the cover with him??

    • Nina W says:

      Did you actually read his remarks? He never called her a famewhore.

  17. MsAubra says:

    cute kid, not as cute as my Camden (nephew)lol

  18. Nicolette says:

    That baby is adorable! As for Kim always being a famewhore let me just say DUH!!!!!!

  19. lucy2 says:

    What a sad life that must be, your only goal is to be famous and you’ll do anything for it. Something seriously lacking if that’s all you want.

    Cute baby. Personally I wouldn’t put a kid on the album cover, but I’m not really surprised he did. I’m more surprised he’s got another album.

    • Jess says:

      Yes Lucy, I’d hate to be married to a man who puts family first.

      He wrote an album for his son, do you NOT understand that?

      He’s going on the road to tour and he’s taking his son with him.

      • lucy2 says:

        Of course I understand that, if you read my post I’m just saying I PERSONALLY would not choose to do that. While it’s a cute picture for a lullaby album, I just have a thing with celebs in general putting their kids out there publicly before they’re old enough to make that choice for themselves.
        I’m not sure what the album cover art has to do with putting family first.

        For the record, the first part of my post was about Kim, not Nick, if that was unclear.

    • Trek Girl says:

      The album is a Fisher-Price lullaby album. If that’s not the perfect time for a baby to be front and center, then I don’t what is.

  20. littlestar says:

    I don’t remember Nick Lachey and KK going on a movie date at all! I barely even remember a time without the Kardashians! It now seems like they always just were :O.

    • Nina W says:

      I remember when the only Kardashian anyone talked about was Robert Kardashian and the name was not synonymous with trash.

  21. Hmmm says:

    I like Nick – I’m from Cincy-area myself and find him to be a true-blue kinda guy. And for putting his kid on the album cover – hey, he is NOT the first to do this. Anybody remember Sir Paul McCartney’s first post-Beatle album? Cuddling his own kid? NOT a fame-whore move. KK on the other hand…

    • Trek Girl says:

      Exactly! The album is a Fisher-Price lullaby album, to boot. It makes perfect sense to have baby Camden on the cover. It’s not famewhoring in any sense of the word.

      • Isa says:

        I knew it had been done before but wasn’t sure by who.
        Most of those Fischer price albums have super cute photos of babies, why wouldn’t he use his own super cute baby?

  22. Jess says:

    Katie, Jessica may have money but that ALL she has, she’s trashy and gross and her freeloading loser mooch will not even marry her.

    Vanessa is going to star in an ABC sitcom this fall called “Dads”.

    Do You honestly think Nick and Vanessa like to put their son in situations so that they will get attention?

    • Kim says:

      Yes – they are all famewhores.

    • anon says:

      UMmm yep they do. Lacheys have signed numerous endorsments with there son & the most significant is Johnsons baby TIde Etc.. Hilary has also Alba has her own stuff its what celebs do. Actually even people that arn’t celebs do it for extra cash.

  23. Helvetica says:

    She is such a vapid mess and OMG isn’t that baby just adorable? I am not one to get googly over little people but that baby is soo cute.

  24. Itsa Reallyme says:

    Since it’s called “A Father’s Lullaby” and he’s the one singing, it makes perfect sense he’d want a picture of himself with his son. I see nothing wrong with that.

    • Dawn says:

      This +100000. What a cute kid. Love his hair! And the way that people are sticking up for old Kimmie you would think that it was Nick that put out the sex tape and got peed on. Kim doesn’t care what is said about her as long as she is being talked about. End of story.

  25. Cordelia says:

    It feels as though before this generation of celebrities had children, no one knew how to parent. Thank God they are here to show us how it’s done. God Bless…please continue milking your children for $/fame.

  26. Nev says:

    adorable baby.

  27. Agnes says:

    Super cute baby!

  28. Christin says:

    The first time I ever heard of KK was after the Nick date. One tabloid described her as a professional closet organizer who was pals with Paris.

  29. Dirty Martini says:

    Given they have all the money they will ever need for the rest of their lives….all the cars, homes, jewels….seriously I don’t think $$$ is the motivation anymore.

    But narcisstic fame whoredom and complete fear of being irrelevant? You bet.

  30. anon says:

    Im no K lover but NIck is a loser. He has a baby album coming out & a so called tour. He needs someone to hop on with to put him back out there. The simplest is KIM because she is everywhere daily. He has done this with Jessica since the divorce & now uses KIM. He has nothing without someone high profile these days. SO when he calls out Kim he needs to rethink what he is doing also. The man is sneaky & as conniving as anyone I know. Don’t let the façade fool you. NOT a good guy. Jessica said a couple years ago she had not spoken to Nick in years YEARS. WHY is that?

    • Nina W says:

      He answered a question in a random interview, you are reading way too much into one comment.

    • Jess says:

      Ummmm……. maybe the reason Jessica has not spoken to him in years is because they are divorced.

      AND he was asked a question about Kim and he answered it.

  31. Lexi says:

    I just died of shock 😛

  32. kibbles says:

    There was another piece of news about Nick Lachey. He says in a few years he plans to move his family back to Cincinnati, OH because he doesn’t want to raise his kid in LA. I agree with his decision but I guess he is trying to ride the gravy train and make as much money as possible before he and Vanessa retire to OH to raise their family.
