Kardashians sign $100 million deal with E!

Like much of the weary world, you may have hoped those ubiquitous Kardashians would just go away.

You’re out of luck. Page Six reports they have have signed a record-breaking $100 million-plus deal with E! for four more years.

The deal, the highest in TV history for a reality brand, includes mom Kris Jenner and daughters Kim, Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Bruce Jenner is not part of the deal, Page Six reports — he has his own show at E! based on his sex transition.

Dress heist

Thieves apparently said yes to Lupita Nyong’o’s Oscars dress.

The 12 Years a Slave actress’ pearl-adorned gown was taken from her hotel room Wednesday, People.com reports. The custom Calvin Klein Collection gown, consisting of 6,000 Akoya pearls of five different sizes, was reportedly worth about $150,000.

Detectives told the Los Angeles Times that they are reviewing surveillance footage and other evidence from the London West Hollywood hotel and that no arrests have been made.

Getting better

Eight months after a debilitating crash that killed his friend and left him severely injured, comedian Tracy Morgan is showing improvement.

Us Weekly reports that the 30 Rock star, 46, was spotted at a rehab facility in New Jersey. He used a cane to walk to the building and waited on a bench for his fiancée Megan Wollover and their daughter Maven.

A source told Us Weekly that Morgan wants to return to work. “If Tracy could be out, acting and doing what he loves, he would be — 100 percent. But sadly, he just can’t yet.”

BookCon bound

Oscar winner Julianne Moore heads to Manhattan in May, but not for a movie role — for the second annual BookCon.

Author of the Freckleface Strawberry picture book series, Moore will be interviewed May 31 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center by Brian Selznick, whose acclaimed book The Invention of Hugo Cabret was adapted by Martin Scorsese into the Oscar-winning film Hugo.

Moore picked up a best-actress award last weekend for playing a college professor with early onset Alzheimer’s disease in Still Alice.
