Kourtney Kardashian vs. Kristin Cavallari Catfight Is Good Publicity

kristin cavallariHave you heard the rumor that Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy Scott Disick had an affair with Kristin Cavallari in 2009? An unknown source apparently told Life&Style that Scott and Kristin hooked up in Vegas in February of 2009 while Scott and Kourtney were "on a break" from each other (the couple have been together since 2007). Supposedly, Kourtney banned Scott from the set of DWTS  -- where both her brother, Rob Kardashian, and Kristin are contestants! This wasn't just a one-time fling, either, says the source -- Scott and Kristin have been hooking up on and off for a year, maybe two!

Whoa, whoa, whoa -- let's slow down the rumor mill here a moment: Kristin denies she ever had an affair with Scott. She's batting down these rumors like she's playing whack-a-mole -- and she's steamed over the how the Kardashians are responding.

As in, too little, too late. What took the Kardashians so long to deny the affair? Kristin has her own theory, and I think she may be right. “I just think, what convenient timing for them with their show premiering next week and with everything that’s going on for Kim, I feel like they’re trying to take the heat off her,” she said today. I'm sure the rumors that Kim and her sisters call Kristin "the whore bag" don't sweeten things for her.

Are the affair rumors just a ploy to take negative attention away from Kim Kardashian's marriage meltdown -- but without taking attention away from the Kardashians completely? Probably -- because the Kardashians must stay in the spotlight constantly! The People must have their Kardashians, right?

And the Kardashian brand is all about scandal. Someone in the family has to be embroiled in something muy picante at all times or we might stop paying attention. This week it's Scott's turn. And if Scott really is taking the heat off of Kim, she owes him and Kourtney, big time.

Do you think the latest Kardashian scandal between Scott Disnick and Kristin Cavallari is just a ploy to distract negative attention from Kim's divorce?
