KIM KARDASHIAN & KRIS HUMPHRIES

MARRIAGE UNDER FIRE

They’ve been wed a little more than two months, and yet already Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, 26, are facing rumors that their marriage is in trouble. After their August wedding they were thrust into challenging circumstances: a grueling work schedule for her and sharing a New York hotel suite with Kim’s sister Kourtney, 32, her boyfriend, Scott Disick, 28, and their son Mason, 22 months, to film their E! reality show. “It’s not ideal because you’re newlyweds and you want privacy,” Kim told Scoop while celebrating her 31st birthday with Humphries and her family at Marquee nightclub at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas Oct. 22. “They’ve been a bit distant lately,” says a source. “But they’re figuring it all out.” Settling into the Kardashian clan is no easy task, admits Khloe, 27. “It’s a tough crowd,” she says. “I think it’s just a lot of transition [for him].” Tabloids have questioned Humphries’s relationship with the sisters, but Khloe insists there’s no rift: “It’s a work in progress. I think he’s a really nice guy, and he loves her.” Now that the show is done filming, it’s back to L.A. “They’re going two separate directions [with work],” says mom Kris Jenner. “They’ll figure it out as soon as they get back.”

HIGH TIMES WITH PRINCE HARRY

PRINCE HARRY IS IN CALIFORNIA FOR ELITE MILITARY TRAINING AT NAVAL AIR FACILITY EL CENTRO. BUT HE GETS WEEKENDS OFF …

HOW BIG IS HIS ENTOURAGE?

He can travel small or with a squad. On Oct. 7 the prince and seven guys shared two tables at McP’s Irish Pub & Grill in Coronado, Calif. That night there were 20 men in his party at the Andaz San Diego.

DOES HE MINGLE?

At the Andaz he moved from general seating to a private cabana by the pool. The next week he was VIP at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, Calif.

WHAT DOES HE DRINK?

He had beer with his burger at McP’s. At the Andaz, where bottle service can cost $325, his crew ordered Absolut Vodka, Red Bull and beer. At the Belly Up he tossed back a shot of tequila.

WHAT DOES HE WEAR OUT?

Mostly jeans, cap and collared shirt.

DOES HE HAVE SECURITY?

Unlike when Prince William and his wife, Kate, visited L.A. this summer and rode in helicopters and motorcades, Harry travels with two low-key bodyguards.

Taking the pulse of celebrity love lives

HEATING UP!

Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds

The pair partied with his pal Sandra Bullock in N.Y.C. Oct. 20 before Lively, 24, visited Reynolds in Boston (for at least the third time) on the set of his film R.I.P.D. on his 35th birthday Oct. 23 (above). “They are very much a couple,” a source tells Scoop.

GOING STRONG!

Stacy Keibler & George Clooney

Clooney, 50, and Keibler, 32, have kicked their PDA up a notch, embracing at his Oct. 20 The Descendants premiere in London (above). “They’re head-over-heels,” says a source, who adds that they don’t argue. “It’s fun and easy. There’s no drama.”

STILL ON!

J.Lo & Bradley Cooper

A source says they met up on the East Coast the week after their Oct. 15 L.A. date-but Lopez, 42, won’t dish on Cooper, 36. “Because of [my kids], I wouldn’t ever comment on anything until I’m in a serious relationship,” she told Entertainment Tonight.

These actors had the chance to play these prime parts-but passed …

Will Smith could have played Neo in the megahit trilogy but declined. The role went to Keanu Reeves.

BODY BY KLUM

When it comes to ghoulish getups, nobody does it better than Heidi Klum, this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF ambassador. “I wanted to show the body as if I would have taken the first layer of skin off,” she says. “It’s basically me naked.” That doesn’t faze the mom of four, 38. “It’s super tight and it feels great. It’ll be gory in a sexy way.”

LINDSAY LOHAN

MORGUE DUTY

FASHIONABLY LATE, THEN EARLY

CUPCAKES, ANYONE?

To make nice for her tardiness, she had cupcakes and burgers sent to the staff, which were turned away. “She did it as a gesture to say she was sorry,” says her rep Steve Honig.

SCRUBBING TOILETS

She spends eight-hour days mopping floors, washing windows, cleaning bathrooms and taking out the trash. “It’s basic janitorial stuff,” says coroner spokesman Ed Winter.

DEATH BECOMES HER

“She isn’t handling any bodies, but she’s definitely seeing them,” Winter adds. “She’s doing fine so far. I haven’t heard any complaints about her.”
