The Hidden Hills home that was the centerpiece of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" for 5 seasons has been sold -- and the TV producer who bought it has exorcised all Kardashian demons by tearing the whole thing down ... except for one precious piece.
The new owner had the homestead disassembled piece by Armenian piece ... the toilets, cabinets, even the roof were donated to Habitat for Humanity. The upshot -- Kardashian remnants will adorn homes throughout the world.
We're told the owner plans on building a modern, industrial-type home in its place.
As for the one piece the owner kept ... the stripper pole, which will become a coat rack.

University of Lagos
Authorities have shut the University of Lagos, Akoka for two weeks following a second straight day of protests by students following the renaming of the institution.
President Goodluck Jonathan had during his Democracy Day broadcast, announced that the 50-year-old institution will now be called the Moshood Abiola University in honour of Chief MKO Abiola, the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 Presidential election.
However, since the announcement was made Tuesday students have been up in arms and on Wednesday morning caused heavy traffic in the Lagos metropolis after they blocked the Third Mainland Bridge.
It took the intervention of senior police officers and university officials before the students agreed to remove the barricades blocking the ever busy highway.University authorities apparently in an attempt to douse passions, consequently ordered students off the campus, which will remain shut for two weeks.
According to laduni blog read this strange story but its true...A rare medical condition has left Tempestt Henderson, from Florida, eating up to five bars of soap a week – and washing powder too. ‘I always knew I loved the smell of washing detergent,’ she explained.
I remember the brand my Mum always used to use – I remember the smell vividly, it was the smell of her cardigan when she hugged me, and the smell of my bed sheets as a child.
‘I used to love smelling the powder, but when life got so stressful I found only eating the soap would help. ‘It is an addiction, I can’t stop, and I have sought the help of a doctor who specialises in addiction. The doctor told me I must empty my house of all washing detergent and soap, anything that triggers my addiction.’hummmmmmmmm wonders they say never ends...

Liberia's ex-President, Charles Taylor
Liberia's ex-President Charles Taylor has been sentenced to 50 years in jail by a UN-backed war crimes court.
Last month Taylor was found guilty of aiding and abetting rebels in Sierra Leone during the 1991-2002 civil war, reports the BBC.
The prosecution at the Special Court for Sierra Leone wanted an 80-year prison term, which the defence said was excessive.
Taylor, 64, insists he is innocent and is likely to appeal the sentence, correspondents say.
The appeal process could last up to six months, the BBC's Anna Holligan in The Hague reports.
During the sentencing, Judge Richard Lussick said the crimes in Sierra Leone were the most heinous in human history.
In its landmark ruling in April, the Special Court for Sierra Leone found Taylor guilty on 11 counts, relating to atrocities that included rape and murder.
He became the first former head of state to be convicted of war crimes by an international court since the Nuremburg trials of Nazis after World War II.
In response, Taylor accused the prosecution of paying and threatening witnesses in his war crimes trial.
He also told the judges to consider his age when making their decision, saying he was "no threat to society".
And he condemned atrocities across the world, and had the "deepest sympathy" for victims in Sierra Leone, but stopped short of expressing remorse or apologising for his part in the conflict.
The prosecutors have said that Taylor's ill health and age, or the fact that he has a family, should have no impact on the sentence.
In written filings, prosecutors said a sentence of 80 years would reflect the severity of the crimes and the central role that Taylor had in facilitating them.
"The purposely cruel and savage crimes committed included public executions and amputations of civilians, the display of decapitated heads at checkpoints... public rapes of women and girls, and people burned alive in their homes," wrote prosecutor Brenda Hollis.
But defence lawyers said the recommended sentence was "manifestly disproportionate and excessive", and that Taylor had only been found guilty of an indirect role - aiding the rebels, rather than leading them.
They said their client should not be made to shoulder the blame alone for what happened in Sierra Leone's war.
The court should not support "attempts by the prosecution to provide the Sierra Leoneans with this external bogey man upon whom can be heaped the collective guilt of a nation for its predominantly self-inflicted wounds", his lawyers wrote.The case is being heard in The Hague for fear that a trial in Sierra Leone could destabilise the region. The Dutch government only agreed if Taylor would serve any sentence in another country, so he will serve any prison term in the UK.
During the Sierra Leone civil war, Taylor supported Revolutionary United Front rebels who killed tens of thousands of people.
The war crimes included murder, rape, the use of child soldiers and the amputation of limbs.
Taylor was accused of channelling weapons to them in return for "blood diamonds" but the judge said the prosecution had failed to prove their case that he had been one of the RUF leaders.

The chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Lagos branch, Dr Karo Ogbinaka, has said that the union will resist the recent change of the university's name.
Dr Ogbinaka said:
We are resisting it, all the unions and the students will resist it, the Alunmus will resist it. The truth about the whole thing is that it shows the level of intelligence of those people in government. Nobody will change Harvard's name, nobody will change Cambridge's name to Winston Churchill University. University of Lagos is a brand, for 50 years. The first university established by Act of Parliament and one man trying to score cheap political point. When people go outside and you ask them what university are you from? What name will you pronounce? They'll ask is it a new university? Is it the name of a toothpaste? It's a senseless thing and are going to resist it. Karo said
