It’s hard to find good street parking, but now it’s extra hard for the Kardashian family thanks to these “No Kardashian Parking Anytime” signs. Have we finally reached our Kardashian saturation point? Street artist Plastic Jesus has installed seven signs around Los Angeles, including in front of the family’s Dash store (the one we all forget they still have).
Plastic Jesus told LA Weekly his reasoning for the art pieces.
“I suppose it’s a protest at the obsession with the Kardashians and every kind of move they make,” the U.K.-bred artist said. “Their lunch outings and shopping trips are media events in themselves. What can be fascinating about someone pumping gas?”
Plastic Jesus said there’s something wrong with our priorities, even if the Kardashian family is just a diversion. “People are shutting out real news content,” he said.
Um, sir, no offense, but if uncovering the Kylie Jennerpaid selfie conspiracy isn’t real news, I don’t know what is.
And if finding good parking in their hometown isn’t problem enough, a prisoner in Florida is trying to make sure no one in the family enters that state (except Rob — he and Rob are cool, apparently). According to TMZ, a sex offender named Wayne Albright — who seems totally stable and mentally sound — is seeking a temporary restraining order keeping Kim and Kanye, aka “Moose Knuckles” as he calls them, from crossing the state line or from appearing on television “unless it’s Court TV and they’re on trial for posing as a famous couple.” It’s probably going to go really well for him.
As for the Kardashian family, it’s no worry (as long as you stay in California and never set foot in Disney World or never again “Take Miami”). This is LA, and in the words of Cher Horowitz…
Internet, we broke NPH. Our snarky subtweets, Tumblr rants, and scathing blog posts have scared the actor away from hosting the Oscars ever again.
Despite polls indicating the viewers would generally want him to return, Neil Patrick Harris admitted to the Huffington Post, “I don’t know that my family nor my soul could take it. It’s a beast. It was fun to check off the list, but for the amount of time spent and the understandable opinionated response, I don’t know that it’s a delightful balance to do every year or even again.”
When asked if he’d been following the Oscars feedback, Harris offered some perspective about the detailed preparation it actually takes to put on the live show.
“I didn’t keep up with it obsessively, but it was interesting to see just what people thought landed and didn’t. It’s so difficult for one who’s simply watching the show to realize just how much time and concession and compromise and explanation has gone into almost every single thing. Every joke. Wording of joke. Placement of joke. Canceling of joke. Embellishment for just one line,” said Harris. “And I’m not saying that to defend everything I said as if it was the absolute best choice, but it’s also an award show, and you’re powering through 14 acts filled with 20 plus awards.”

Those dreams about on-screen superhero Chris Pratt coming to save the day just might come true for you. On Big Morning Buzz Live, Law & Order star Jeremy Sisto explained how the hunky actor (who’s his LA neighbor) came to help his family in a serious time of need — bulky muscles, door kick, and all.
Sisto told the story of when his daughter, who was three years old at the time, locked his infant son in a bedroom. Sisto’s desperate wife Addie Lane gave Pratt’s family a call, and the star instantly went into Star Lord mode. Sisto joked that Pratt stole his big father moment, while his wife was taken aback by his handsomeness and strong build. Can you blame her?
