WAS KIM K'S PARTY AN EPIC FAIL?!: KIM KARDASHIAN hosted the grand opening of a nightclub in Charlotte, North Carolina late last week, and many on the Celebrity Blogosphere are calling it an "epic fail" after only a handful of people showed up.
Word is the event was being hyped as "The" place to be, but apparently Charlotte residents had more important things to do because only 50 people supposedly showed up.
Kim's Tweeted photo of a half-empty champagne glass, along with the caption "It's that kinda night," seemed to underscored how underwhelmed residents were with her presence in their fair city. Kim and her posse left the club after about two hours.
Club owner Marc Hubbard tells things a bit differently, though. According to the RumorFix website, Hubbard says the party wasn’t an “epic fail” because it was always intended to be a private event.
He adds that of the 250 people invited, 250 showed up, and that Kim agreed to show up “as a personal favor to me” one day in advance so it was never the “hyped” event it’s being made out to be.

CHRISTIAN BALE FLIES 4 YEAR OLD CANCER PATIENT + FAMILY TO DISNEY: Let’s take a short break from the snark, rumor and innuendo to warm the cockerels of your heart with a pretty cool CHRISTIAN BALE story.
Bale, we learned over the weekend, flew a 4-year-old cancer patient and his family from Ohio to Los Angeles last week so they could go to Disneyland.
According to WYTV in Ohio, Jayden Barber was undergoing chemotherapy for bone cancer for two years before it turned into MDS leukemia last year.
Jayden's mother hit up Facebook and posted this picture of her son with Bale and wrote that "they talked movies and superheroes and [Bale] was genuinely happy to hear about everything Jayden wanted to tell him.”
She added, quote, "Christian made these arrangements for us personally and ensured we were treated like royalty. I don't have even one negative thing to say about [him and his family.]”
