Kanye West might force Kim Kardashian to quit reality TV.
The "Clique" singer - who recently announced his girlfriend of nine months is expecting their first child in June - is said to be uncomfortable about the idea of her documenting her pregnancy on her family's series Keeping Up With The Kardashians but is willing to go along with it for now.
A source close to the 35-year-old rapper told HollywoodLife.com, "You know Kanye is just rolling with the punches right now with everything. He not tripping - YET! All this TV is new to him and Kim is explaining to him that everything is going to be OK and she's encouraging him to just go with the fact that the pregnancy -- or at least part of it -- will be filmed. I know deep down, [Kanye] isn't trying to pimp out his baby like that. He and Kim got way more than enough money to take care of 100 kids if they want to have that many. But he know that when it comes to Kim and her family, especially that mother of hers, it's all business and that show is how they make their money. So he juggling all this [stuff] in his head right now, but he ain't all hyped about it yet because it hasn't gone down yet - the filming that is."
Mariah Carey's husband convinced her to join the American Idol panel.
The "Hero" singer admitted she was initially wary of taking a role on the judging panel of the pop star search show but America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon talked her into it.
"He really wanted me to do this. I had my own kind of reservations about it because I didn't know how I would adapt to the situation. It's a huge deal," she said.
However, Mariah admitted she would have hated to be a contestant on the show when she was first starting out: "I get really attached to certain people for different reasons whether it's their story or what it mainly is is talent. Sometimes I see myself in some of the contestants when I first started and I'm glad I didn't have to do a show like this. I would have hated it! It's been really fun. We're still in the beginning stages but I've learned a lot. I want to continue to be the best I can be in order to help contestants. It's that for me. I don't know if I have a judging style. I try to speak as frankly as possible, but as kindly as possible not sugar coating the whole thing because that does nobody any good and that's boring to watch."
Kanye West reportedly wants Kim Kardashian to quit her reality TV show.

The series is hugely popular and although Kim is considering taking her boyfriend's career advice, she is worried how her mother Kris - who is also her manager - may react if she left the show. "If Kanye persuades Kim to leave reality TV, Kris will hate him for it. It will rob her family of their income," the source explained.

The showbiz matriarch is reportedly keen for her daughter Kim Kardashian to keep on dating Kanye West so he could eventually get his celebrity friends involved in the show - including Beyonce and husband Jay-Z.
"One of the main reasons she so approves of Kim and Kanye's romance is the fact that Kanye has tons of celebrity friends. Kris has her ways and it wouldn't surprise me if the cameras captured Kim and Kanye on a double date with Beyonce and Jay-Z," a source told HollywoodLife.com.
She is believed to be even speaking to Kanye to convince him to ask his celebrity friends to take part. "Kris is doing her best to convince Kanye to arrange the double date. Believe me, it's hard to say no to Kris!" the source said.
Sharon Osbourne is taking a break from The Talk to spend more time with her husband. The 58-year-old star insists she is not leaving the discussion program for good, but she will not be on the panel when the show returns after its summer break in September because she wants to be with her spouse, rocker Ozzy Osbourne when he comes off tour.
"I've kept it no secret that I really miss my husband. He'll have been on tour for 18 months by the time it's over. I've spent a lot of time away from him. He gets a break at the end of September and so I've asked for a little break so I can be with him. I don't want to give it up. It's a great, great show. We've all worked really hard over the last year. I'm not going to walk away from that. I just need some real good quality time to be with my hubby."
One reason Sharon wants to return is the close bond she has with co-hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini: "I'm very close to the women on the show. I didn't think that I would be [because] none of us knew each other going into it. We just didn't know each other socially."
