Popeater - over 3 years
Welcome back to celebrity week in review, your one-stop shop for all the latest celebrity news so you'll always have something to talk to your co-workers about during lunch time! This week, Kim Kardashian stepped out in LA looking great with her new blond 'do. We haven't seen the new mom around too much since she gave birth to daughter North back in June, and we were happy to see she's doing well. Khloe, on the other hand, wasn't doing so hot this week. The youngest Kardashian sister posted a heartbreaking, cryptic message on Instagram which seemingly relates to her struggles with her husband, Lamar Odom. Odom has been rumored to be battling drug addiction, though he's debunked those rumors completely. Regardless, yesterday he was charged with a DUI in an incident that occurred two weeks ago in California. In other news, Miley Cyrus continued making headlines this week.

Review: Sub drama 'Phantom' remains submerged Associated Press Copyright 2013 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Updated 12:12 pm, Thursday, February 28, 2013 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Submarine thrillers such as "Run Silent, Run Deep," ''The Hunt for Red October," ''Crimson Tide" and the classic "Das Boot" have long been a cinematic staple. The tense Cold War-era storyline concerns a final voyage undertaken by veteran Soviet captain Demi (Ed Harris), still physically and emotionally scarred by a previous mission that went awry. In addition to Demi's regular crew, who include his loyal right-hand man Alex (William Fichtner), several "technicians," led by the mysterious Bruni (David Duchovny), are also aboard. The resulting conflict between the vulnerable Demi — he suffers from epilepsy as a result of an injury sustained on his military mishap — and the ruth ...
