Just because Kim Kardashian is seeing basketball star Kris Humphries, it does not--we repeat does not--mean it's a serious thing.
At least that's what her best friend LaLa Vasquez says. Sure LaLa likes the dude, but...
"I think you guys probably think it's a little more than it is," she told reporters last night at W magazine's pre-Golden Globes party at Chateau Marmont. "It's a friendship now, and it's growing, and we'll see what happens. But he's definitely a nice guy, and he's gotten my stamp of approval."
Across town, Kim and sister Khlo weren't as talkative.
The two presented at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards at the Palladium, but declined to do much--if any--press when they walked the red carpet. Inside, they presented Best Documentary.
"What was that all about?" one studio exec griped. "Why did they have them doing Best Documentary? It wasn't funny and really disrespectful to the filmmakers."
Sure, the Kardashians aren't the first peeps that come to mind when you think about docs, but then again the show was broadcast on VH1. As we know here at E! and E! Online, there's a whole lotta folks out there who tune in just to see Kim, Khlo and the rest of the famous reality show clan. (Kourtney wasn't on-hand, but no word on why.)
Now, back to the W soiree: Andrew Garfield was there with girlfriend Shannon Woodward while Joe Jonas and Mila Kunis hugged hello. Other guests included Jon Hamm, Amy Adams, Mark Ruffalo, Julianne Moore, Kirsten Dunst, Emma Roberts and Colin Firth.
In other pre-Globes party news:
The New York Times' T magazine hosted a soiree at Gardens of Taxco restaurant in West Hollywood. Joining editors Sally Singer, Jacob Brown and Sara Moonves were Stephen Moyer, Deborah Ann Woll, Lily Collins, Stephen Dorff, Aziz Ansari, Gavin Rossdale, Vincent Gallo, Juliette Lewis, Jessica Chastain (Brad Pitt's gorgeous Tree of Life costar), Rashida Jones, Amber Heard, Aziz Ansari and Milk director Gus Van Sant.
