Diet Cookie Drama for Kim Kardashian

Cookies might not be good for your health, but twittering about cookies might be even worse for your health.

Such is the lesson Kim Kardashian is learning the hard way. She's being hit with a lawsuit by a diet-cookie company who claims she used her Twitter to issue the defamatory claim that their product is unhealthy.

Kim, who reportedly earns $10,000 for every tweet she sends, is being sued by the founder of Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet. His side of the story: The Kardashian middle-child had a monetary motive by slamming his treats because she is a spokesperson for a rival diet product known as QuickTrim. 

TMZ.com reports that this is just another chapter in an ongoing legal battle between Kim and Mr. Cookie. Apparently Kim recently called the Cookie guy onto the carpet via a cease and desist letter that accused him of falsely claiming Kim was endorsing his product.

While she might not endorse cookies, she has been putting her name to lucrative use lately. In addition to her work with QuickTrim, Kim is starring in a commercial for -- and twittering about -- a new Carls Jr. salad.
