The next Kardashian to join the family may be a Band-Aid baby. Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick seem to be really on the edge of splitting yet again, according to widespread media reports. Over the weekend, the pregnant reality star threw Scott out of their rental home in the Hamptons, where they are staying to shoot Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The problem, as always, is Disick’s passion for drinking and partying.

At least sister Kim is being worshiped by Kanye West, who praised his new wife (who has taken a shine to sheer tops of late) while speaking at the Cannes Lions advertising summit in Paris Tuesday. Asked why they are together, the rapper answered: “I can’t be with any girl but Kim because that’s the girl I look at her pictures the most, I get turned on the most.”

On the mend

Some good news for Tracy Morgan: the comedian is no longer in critical condition. His rep says Morgan has been upgraded to “fair,” and “his personality is certainly starting to come back as well.” The 30 Rock star was in a deadly six-vehicle accident on the New Jersey Turnpike earlier this month.

Dancing With the Stars pro Mark Ballas was taken to the hospital on Monday following a car crash in L.A., TMZ reports. The 28-year-old as was turning when a vehicle slammed into his car’s right rear side; he was treated for back pain and whiplash and released.

Choosing love

Andi Dorfman’s law career has taken a time-out. The Bachelorette has resigned from her job as an assistant district attorney in Atlanta. The 27-year-old had been on an unpaid leave of absence with the Fulton County District Attorney's office until May 31 to be on the ABC show, but decided against returning, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Domestic dispute

A Connecticut prosecutor is dropping a disorderly conduct case against Paul Simon and his wife of 22 years, Edie Brickell. Simon, 72, and Brickell, 48, had been scheduled to be in court Tuesday, but didn’t appear. Prosecutors told a judge they were declining to pursue the case, meaning the charges will be dropped and eventually erased after 13 months. Brickell told police Simon shoved her and she slapped him. The report says Simon suffered a superficial cut to his ear and Brickell, who smelled of alcohol, had a bruise on her wrist. They have three children.
