Not surprisingly, members of Kim Kardashian’s family, particularly mother-of-the-bride Kris Jenner, are over-the-top furious about Kim’s ex Ray J for allegedly texting Kardashian on her Saturday wedding day to remind her about the sex video they made back in 2007.
While the entertainer gave an interview to Chicago’s WGCI-FM (107.5) claiming he was “so over that” relationship, he got vague when asked exactly what kind of message he sent his former girlfriend Saturday.
The singer/songwriter and reality TV star did say, “I wish them the best. She’s doing real good right now, that what it is.”
† There were reports that Ray J’s messages to Kardashian claimed it was their sex video — which Kardashian initially sued to quash — that helped turn her into a media phenomenon. “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” launched less than a year after the video was initially leaked.
BACK TOGETHER? Their TV shows may have been canceled, but Kat Von D and Jesse James supposedly are slowly reheating their once torrid romance.
A source close to Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband tells me, “they are taking things a bit slower this time. ... It’s another case of can’t live with her, can’t live without her. … We’ll just have to wait and see.”

STAR SHOT: Sources on the set of “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” — currently filming down in Atlanta — claim they have been surprised that Chris Rock has “out-diva’ed” well-known diva Jennifer Lopez.
“He is way more demanding, has a far bigger entourage and is just more needy in every way than Jennifer,” said a movie insider.
IN DRIVER’S SEAT: The romance between Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively is steady as ever, but the actor has insisted on certain changes in Lively’s life. The eco-friendly star has insisted she dump her gas-guzzling Range Rover, which he has replaced with a black Prius.

On top of all that, Olson will receive a $1,000 Coco Pazzo restaurants gift card — to help him start working on his next 1,000 visits!
CLARIFICATION: A spokesperson for Mr. Rucci said he never worked with James. That information was provided in a press release from the Chicago History Museum.
