Kardashians double up for the weekend

You can’t spell “opening” without “Kardashian.” We think. We’re probably going to have to check a dictionary on that or something, actually.

Regardless, it was a double dose of Kardashian on April 15 and 16 when a newcomer and an established presence both threw open their doors for 2011.

On April 15, Kourtney Kardashian spent her birthday hosting the grand opening of Gallery Nightclub at Planet Hollywood. With preternaturally creepy baby-daddy Scott Disick in tow, Kardashian did dinner at Paris’ Sugar Factory before bouncing next door to ring in the new club in the former Privé space.

At the opening were Holly Madison and Josh Strickland, Lance Bass, Alexis Bellino of The Real Housewives of Orange County and Barry Manilow. As Conan O’Brien noted on Twitter, “It’s tough sharing a birthday with Kourtney Kardashian. Our friends never know which party to go to.”

Guess we know where Barry’s loyalties lie.

The following day, Kim Kardashian hosted the season opening of Wet Republic at MGM Grand. The middle Kardashian sister spent her blue-carpet time putting to bed rumors she was moving to New York City and marrying her boyfriend, New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries.

“L.A. is my home and I will always live there,” she said. “They’re all rumors, I don’t know where they come from. Either you’re getting married, breaking up or having a baby.”

She also said she felt like she was “in a normal, happy relationship.”

You know, those normal bicoastal relationships with professional athletes where you have to answer to the press rumors about a pending marriage or cross-country move that every girl can relate to.
