Ryan Seacrest Productions Pulled Into Kardashian Legal Squabble In New Filing By Widow

The cast of Ellen Kardashian’s legal fight with her deceased husband’s children and ex-wife just had some marquee names added. Today a defamation and infliction of emotion distress complaint was filed against Ryan Seacrest Productions and Bunim-Murray Productions in LA Superior Court (read it here) The Kardashian clan of Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Robert Jr and mother Kris Jenner were also named, as was Jenner Communications. The Keeping Up With Kardashians producer and American Idol host was not personally named as a defendant. Very similar to a motion for counterclaim that Ellen Kardashian/Pearson filed in federal court in July, today’s 20-page complaint alleges that the widow of Robert Kardashian is the victim of a manufactured reality TV plotline from earlier this year by the clan and the production companies and a “manufactured lawsuit” in filed in federal court in April. Kardashian/Pearson withdrew her federal motion for counterclaim earlier this month with a window open to file it again if she wanted to. Seeking damages of $500,000, the Kardashian suit against their ex-stepmother claimed that Kardashian/Pearson, who married the family patriarch two months before he died of cancer in 2003, was engaged in a  ”despicable and unlawful scheme” to sell family photos of the children and parts of their father’s diary to the tabloids.

E!’s Lisa Berger Exits As President Of Entertainment

There is a major executive change at E! Entertainment with president of entertainment programming Lisa Berger suddenly leaving her post. Berger has been at E! for nine years, overseeing the network’s original programming development, first under president Ted Harbert and, for the past year under his successor Suzanne Kolb. Berger led the network during the transition from Comcast to NBCUniversal ownership, where the cable network falls under the purview of NBCU veteran Bonnie Hammer, and was among the executives rumored for the top E! post. During her tenure at E!, Berger shepherded such hit unscripted series as The Girls Next Door, Keeping Up With The Kardashians and its offshoots and late-night staple Chelsea Lately. She most recently oversaw the network’s expansion into scripted programming. Berger, who was a creative executive at Fox Television Studios Production and MTV before joining E! as SVP Programming Development in September 2003, indicated she will likely take on another gig after a short break. “After nine wonderful years at E!, I have made the difficult decision to leave my post as President, Entertainment Programming,” she said. “My time at E! has been an amazing experience both professionally and personally, and it is hard to sum up nearly a decade of show launches, milestone moments and incredible friendships. I am extremely proud of all of our accomplishments taking the network to record heights and forever grateful to my team whose talent and dedication knows no bounds. Although it won’t be easy for me to say goodbye, I look forward to sharing the news of my next challenge in the months ahead.” Read More »

Kris Jenner In Talks For Twentieth Daytime Talk Show Eying Test Run On Fox Stations

Nellie Andreeva

Kris Jenner Talk Show FoxEXCLUSIVE: Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, the first lady of reality television, is eying a move into daytime. I’ve learned that Jenner is in talks with Twentieth Television to host a daytime talk show. Discussions are also underway for a test run of the show on the Fox TV Stations as early as this summer. There had been speculation that Jenner, who has built a TV empire with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians franchise, is looking to launch her own talk show. Last year, she served as a fill-in host on The Talk and the fourth hour of Today. Meanwhile, the six-week test run on the Fox stations has become increasingly popular as it has spawned two series to go to national syndication: Wendy Williams and Bethenny. “Everyone wants to do a test with the Fox TV stations,” a spokesperson for the stations said, declining further comment.
