Did the Kardashians Just Sign a $40 Million Deal With E!?
The KARDASHIANS just signed a new deal with E! that extends "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" for three more years. It also extends the network's talent and development deals with all the family members.

--Meanwhile . . . Kourtney's boyfriend Scott Disick and son Mason have a separate deal . . . as does Khloe's husband Lamar Odom.

Oh, Thank God: Nicki Minaj Has Rejoined Twitter
Last week, NICKI MINAJ suddenly quit Twitter, and it wasn't immediately clear if humanity would continue. It did. And everyone forgot about Nicki's stupid Twitter account.
--Well, guess what: Yesterday, she rejoined Twitter. All her old Tweets are there, except a few missing ones that she sent out right before pulling the plug.
--Like this one: Quote, "Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good [effing] bye." (--Word has it she was upset at a fan site for leaking music, but she hasn't confirmed that. Frankly, I think she's fortunate to even HAVE a fan site.)
--She later said, quote, "A voice in my head told me to delete my Twitter and that's what I did. I had 11 million followers and I hope they will wait for me."
--And in another interview, she added, quote, "Let's set the record straight: I just needed a moment to myself. Because some page posted things about me? I mean, I've read horrible things about myself. I wouldn't delete my Twitter over that."
--Nicki's followers did NOT remain intact. But as of late last night, she was already back up to 1.6 million followers.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis Spent the Weekend Together
ASHTON KUTCHER and MILA KUNIS spent the weekend together in the coastal town of Carpinteria, California . . . which is near Santa Barbara.
--They drove there from L.A. on Thursday and returned on Sunday. In between they were spotted eating sushi, shopping for fruit and flowers and grabbing coffee together.
--Ashton and Mila were co-stars on "That '70s Show", but never dated. But it sounds like Ashton has always wanted to. A source says, quote, "He was so in love with her for a while when they worked together.
--"He thought she was a goddess, was always talking about how beautiful she is. But she was with Macaulay [Culkin] for a lot of that time and also just generally gave off a not interested vibe."
