Khloe dishes on Kris and Bruce's living situation
Khloe Kardashian Odom, one of arguably too many in the reality TV family, opened up about her mother and stepfather on Wednesday's episode of "The Tonight Show." Khloe, married to Los Angeles Clippers player Lamar Odom, told host Jay Leno that Kris and Bruce Jenner prefer to live separately. Well, everyone needs their space every once in a while. Right?
Not to this extent. The couple doesn't just have separate bedrooms, or even separate houses on the same property; they live in different cities!
The 28-year-old "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star explained: "Well, they're not having problems but they still like to live apart, which is definitely different. In my house, there is a man room for Lamar. A room, not a different house. I think they took my idea and ran with it, and they got another house. Bruce stays there sometimes. It's in the same state, a different city."
That does not sound like the picture of a happy marriage.
Khloe added her two cents about the bizarre situation, saying, "I'm not for that, but you know, to each their own. I don't compare relationships. I just think a little too much time apart maybe isn't the best thing."
While Khloe said that Kris and Bruce, who have two biological children together, offered the excuse that they've have been married for more than 20 years, Khloe isn't buying it. "[I] know people that have been married longer that still live together."
We tend to agree with the younger Kardashian. What's the point of being married if you don't spend time together?
Justin sets his sights on space
All the Beliebers out there will be sad to learn that their idol will be leaving them -- at least for a while -- as Justin Bieber will be headed into space on a suborbital flight with Virgin Galactic in the near future, People reports.
Virgin founder Richard Branson confirmed Wednesday that Justin and his manager, Scooter Braun, signed onto the program. "Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!" he tweeted.
Justin could add the title of astronaut to his resume as early next year, when Virgin plans to begin its commercial flights.
Other celebs who are slated to blast off include Leonardo DiCaprio and Ashton Kutcher. Tickets reportedly start at $250,000.

"I always like unexpected things, and I always like the suspense to be real. ... I want my readers and I want my viewers to be afraid when my characters are in danger. I want them to be afraid to turn the next page because the character may not survive it." - "Game of Thrones" author George R.R. Martin, speaking to Conan O'Brien about "Red Wedding," the recent jaw-dropping episode of the HBO series based on his books
