Why are Kris Humphries & Kim Kardashian divorcing after only 72 days?

wenn3474285

As I already talked about, Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce today, right now, of this very moment. Ryan Seacrest has confirmed the news (he produces their shows), and every media outlet is running it, so it’s on. TMZ says that she’s going to be citing “irreconcilable differences” which is funny because how “irreconcilable” is anything after only 72 days? It’s not like they’re being tortured, you know? “Oh, I just don’t know how much longer I can go to parties and have my photograph taken with my husband! IT’S TORTURE.” Anyway, now we get to play the fun game of “Why Are they Really Splitting Up?”

*Theory #1: TMZ claims that the fight that led to divorce was about Kris Humphries wanting to move back to Minnesota. TMZ claims, “We’re told Kris was passionate about eventually settling down in Minnesota, where he’s from … and believed Kim was on board with the plan. She wasn’t. Sources tell us Kim — who’s from L.A. — wants to stay near her family … and she also feels that staying in town is the best thing for her career.”

*Theory #2: Us Weekly’s sources say that Kris “isn’t drinking the Kardashian Kool-Aid” and it was causing major problems because he wouldn’t just fall in line. Also, he’s bored and doing nothing because of the lockout, and it was driving Kim crazy.

*Theory #3: Kim and Kris were living in NYC with Kourtney, Scott and Mason-Dixon. Kim told People that the living situation was “not ideal” for newlyweds.

*Theory #4: Kim is already boning someone else. Hollywood Life thinks it might be Linnocent’s old john, Vikram Chatwal. Reggie Bush is probably in the mix too. Or what about that dude Kim was already sexting while she was engaged?

*Theory #5: It was always just a dumb lie, a storyline promoted for the reality show. It was all for ratings and money and famewhoring and gifts and freebies and an excuse to throw a party. It was all business.

*Theory #6: This is my theory – it wasn’t all a lie, just mostly a lie. I think that Kim didn’t really love Kris, but thought he was easy-going enough to be married to for a short time. I think the basic thing, the crux of all of this is that Kim simply wanted to have a wedding. She wanted to plan a wedding and wear a white dress. She didn’t think about anything beyond “walking down the aisle”.

Also: I can’t believe I was right about a “A Very Kardashian Divorce: The Kardashian Khristmas Special”. Except maybe this one will be a Thanksgiving special. In any case, they didn’t make it to the end of the year, so I win.

    bwhahahahahaha. i’m sorry i wish them nothing but the best. i’m going to go cackle in the corner now…

  2. mt says:

    HAHA!!! I can’t stand this bitch.

  3. GraceCb says:

    That’s kind of awful. Just..sad.

  4. jc126 says:

    Theory #5 for the win. It was all a big stunt for money and publicity.
    They are disgusting people. The more of these cheesy stunts they pull, the less likely it is that Kim will ever find a semi-decent guy, too. Who would want to be around that?

  5. Hautie says:

    No one believed this was going to last.

    Kim wanted to be married and made it happen.

    Now she is going to be twice divorced. How charming. Maybe wedding #3 will be lucky for her. :)

    Had to add in… I bet money Paris Hilton is laughing her ass off right now!

    And you know E! will continue to run that wedding special for the next year. Now it is a train wreck and everyone will want to slow down and take a look at it again.

  6. madpoe says:

    Whoo! I laughed so hard my inner child peed her pants!

    People got $$$ to waste y’all!!

  7. Katie says:

    This marriage wasn’t real to begin with. I know a woman who was a producer for Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s and she says that EVERYTHING that goes on on the show is fake. The marriage was fake too.

  8. feedmeplz says:

    The comments on her facebook page are hilarious!

  9. jdao says:

    Marriage is not just about the party, people!

  10. Mouse says:

    So…are they going to send all the wedding gifts back like Miss Manners would suggest is appropriate? NO? Hmm…I’m not at all surprised this was a shameless grab at free crap…

  11. T.C. says:

    Anyone Who poses ALONE on the cover of a magazine in her wedding dress without her groom is not serious about the marriage. It was all about throwing a party and looking good wearing a wedding dress. Sad.

  12. mia135 says:

    Theory #5 and #6.

    Whatever the reason – what a couple of crass, ignorant losers. Especially when there are some people in this world who would love nothing more than to find someone special and get married, but are not able to for one reason or the other.

  13. arock says:

    it was all a set up, im sure.
    but doesnt it feel good to point and laugh at her?

    haha*

    *nelson voice

  14. GirlyGIrl says:

    Theory 5

    I imagine they though Kris would play along for a couple more months but got smart/bored/irritated…

    they will be looking a long time for someone stupider than themselves for her to marry and stretch out the story for a whole season.

  15. Redd says:

    My vote is theory #6, this is has always been my belief. She wanted a wedding, it didn’t matter who the groom was, as long as it was someone she thought she and her family could control. She thought he was just dumb enough to fill the part, and for awhile, he was. Now I hope the other one will put marriage on hold for at least a very long time. Sick of the whole bunch.

  16. Chereth Cutestory says:

    Anyone who believes this wedding was anything other than a money-making venture from start to finish is a fool.

  17. sally says:

    I agree with Theory #6, IF you add in that she thought it would last long enough for her to poop out a kid or two. I think she assumed that he wouldn’t have the $$$ or constitution to fight her in court for custody when the inevitable divorce occurred.
    When it became obvious he had a backbone and a mind of his own, she decided to cut her losses and move on.

  18. mln76 says:

    Ugh she’s just a glorified trash bag.

  19. Juliet says:

    these two idiots are a bloody joke

  20. bella says:

    i just don’t get this. they were together as late as last week in the audience at DWTS cheering on her brother. when a couple is at the threshold of divorce, they have nothing but contempt for each other…can’t even stand to be in the same room. the divorce is either a ploy – gimmick for the show or maybe the entire relationship is for ratings…hollywoood is so strange.

  21. Paul Frehley says:

    Why does anybody believe that the marriage was real? It was just for the tv show.

  22. Unbeweavable says:

    I think the amount of money that went in to this is just sickening. Mr. Unbeweavable and I spent $2000 on our small wedding and we have been beyond happy for 4 years. This crazy bitch had people throw money at their wedding, to the tune of $10 million and they have only been married for 2 1/2 months. Money really doesn’t buy you happiness. Or a moronic lurch that’ll follow you around like a puppy.

  23. ! says:

    I think it’s kind of a combination of all of the above. I hope she’s monumentally embarrassed for wasting so much of everybody’s time. I’m guessing E! didn’t even get their full run of wedding day reruns out of it.

    I’m kind of surprised, I thought they’d at least stick it out six months. And I thought that was being cynical!

  24. You don't say says:

    (re-posting part of this from other thread as I am lazy)

    Oh please. Now she gets exactly what she wants and deserves. More tabloid covers and ways to talk about herself. Why this woman and her family are famous and millionaires is beyond my understanding. “E”, Ryan Seacrest and their minions have foisted this phoney on us for years and now another round of crap.

    People who work for a living are losing jobs and struggling and this bitch gets richer by the day for no apparent reason. It is beginning to make me really angry.

    She should have to give all of the money she made off this phony wedding back to the source or to some really deserving charity. She should be charged with fraud as it was taken under false pretenses.

  25. Ron says:

    This bitch is just vomit inducing. Kimmy wants to play wedding everyone! She makes Paris Hilton look like the girl with a moral compass.

  26. HotPockets says:

    Why are people protesting Wall Street in the occupy Wall Street movement,when we should be protesting against this family and how they’re the epitome of greed and waste, they repulse me. A bigger waste than Lindsay Lohan.

  27. NaomiCampbellsPhone says:

    #5, I’m sure of it. Nothing the Kardashian Krew do is real. Twice divorced and you’re only 31, looks like Kims new nickname is Ross Geller.

  28. Dawn says:

    Hey Kris, don’t divorce the bitch, instead simply get an annulment. And will they be paying back all the idiots who paid for this fakery? I bet not, I am sure E! will be protecting the little piggy Kimmie and spinning this to make it look like Kris Humphrey was at fault, not their perfect little pee and poo girl. I mean really she allowed a dog of man to pee and poo on her and now acts as if she is the idea of perfection. God I hate that clan, and why they keep making more money is beyond me. Whatever Kris Humphrey may have gotten out of this (hopefully not an STD) it was NOT enough. That should be enough to say about but somehow it simply isn’t. A pox on all of the Kardashian houses.

  29. truthful says:

    there is a NEW blind item about this and it fits her dumb butt perfectly..

    FAKE!

    like her face…money grubbing trashbag!

    it was written all over her face, she never loved this dude.

    it was already let out by E, that men were being sought out for this fiasco.

    to think she wanted Jeters or Alex, she thinks waaay more of herself than what the public thinks.

    famewhore

  30. Lynne says:

    #5 adding that they just finished filming so of course they are divorcing. Watch them reconcile right before next season.

  31. Jamie says:

    “When he showed he had a backbone, she decided to cut her losses and move on”- BINGO!
    I think that’s why so much effort has been put into making Kris appear to be so bad with her family and the marriage.
    My vote is that the family planned the whole thing and the “groom” believed it was real. Having time on his hands due to the lockout opened his eyes.

  32. ladybert62 says:

    Theory #6 – she could have had a cardboard or wax figure as the groom and that would have served her purpose as much as kris did.

    It was all about the show, the ratings, the money – it was not a marriage for love.

    I would be ashamed to show my face if I had spent goobs of millions on a wedding and then filed for divorce after 72 days.

    They have made a mockery of marriage.

  33. Lynne says:

    #5 adding that they just finish filming so of course they are divorcing. Watch them reconcile right before next season.

  34. Diane says:

    What a poor excuse for a woman. Actually, I guess she’s a ‘brand’ now. Wassa matter, honey, he wouldn’t change his name to Kardashian?? Maybe she was counting on never seeing him due to his game schedule, but the NBA went on strike and now she actually has to spend time with him. Can’t wait to hear her play the victim. I realize that it’s her money and she can spend it however she likes, but if she wasn’t such a selfish bitch, just think of the good she could’ve done in the world with what she wasted on her sham wedding. And these are the people we glorify in our society. Doesn’t say much about us.

  35. Cheyenne says:

    72 days? I’m surprised it lasted 72 hours.

  36. Jayna says:

    His parents must be so relieved he got out of the Kardashian madness.

    I have never seen a more sterile wedding. The backdrop looked like a Scientology wedding. The wedding march (here comes the Queen) music was so pretentious.

    The reception was beautiful.

    I have never seen a wedding so lacking in meaning in my life. I thought she would last a little longer out of embarrassment. But I agree with CB, Kris wouldn’t fall fall into the Kardashian line. How dare he want a real marriage after the wedding. Move into a suite with Courtney and Scott instead of their own suite down the hall. She never cared about this marriage.

  37. Lila says:

    Just wanted to include the fact that he got scammed out of a good chunk of dough. Maybe Kim wanted to make sure Lurch didn’t start losing her money.

  38. Denise says:

    Bets are on that she and Reggie hook up soon. I don’t know why she dumped him in the first place. I don’t wish I’ll on anyone, but we all saw this coming.

  39. ladybert62 says:

    Dang, I am loving everyone’s posts here today – they are funny and interesting and have made my day!

    Keep up the good work gang!

  40. Mimi says:

    I don’t feel bad for Kim. She got exactly what she wanted out of this whole fiasco. More money, better ratings, and a beautiful wedding. Chris was only along for the ride.

  41. Rachel says:

    Hello? Because it was a friggin publicity stunt that’s why! Her mother supposedly held an audition to look for a husband for her just for the damn show!

  42. Hellen says:

    The length of his contract was 60 days (which is actually about 6 years in TV-time, which is like dog years). He actually overstayed his contractual obligation by 12 days! Atta boy! Go for those overtime charges!

  43. Sumodo1 says:

    Stunt wedding! Hahahahaha! I hope the vendors got paid, because they will never be able to brag that they “did” Kim’s wedding. When the NBA season starts, Kris will be a laughingstock on the court, so maybe he should play in Europe. Also, RETURN THE PRESENTS, KIM. (Greedy trashbag!)

  44. wunder says:

    My vote is for a mixture of Theories # 5 & 6.

    I think KK just wanted “a wedding” with someone who also had a ‘K’ initial, and that Kris was just an inconvenient truth even if he probably auditioned for the part due to the lockout.

    What a crapass publicity stunt!

  45. angelina says:

    I think it’s a combination of things — mostly fake, Kim wanted a wedding, etc. Did you see the clip of Kris shaking? He was probably thinking WTF am I doing! He didn’t look too happy as Kim was walking down the aisle either.

  46. Tia says:

    BUT WAIT, HOLD ON.. STOP THE PRESSES. 72 fn days???? But gay people who are totally commited and have loving healthy relationships can’t marry.. GIVE ME A FREAKIN BREAK!!!!! PATHETIC!!!

  47. Nanz says:

    Theory 5 is my guess. I’d be pissed if I spent money on wedding gift if it was all a publicity stunt from the beginning. I hope the guests were in on the joke.

  48. Lisa says:

    She so wants to be like Elizabeth Taylor. She kept mentioning ET in her Kat-face wedding special.

  49. Nessa says:

    I just wish these people would go away. They are useless, privileged famewhores who would do anything to stay relevant. They have no shame at all.

  50. Ana says:

    I agree with your theory, Kaiser! (#6)

    I also believe Kris has been made to look like the bad guy, so Kim can fill magazines saying how much in love she was, and is now so heart-broken over the whole thing, when it is probably the other way around.

    Maybe no one was the “bad guy”, but for the K’s publicity this way they can get something out of it.

  51. Rita says:

    The marriage vow of “for better or worse” is to be taken seriously in order for newlyweds to get beyond the 72 day barrier which reveals all the irreconcilable differences one can not possibly understand by merely dating. For instance:

    1-He’s too tall.
    2-Her butt’s too big.
    3-The taste of silicone and botox on a tooth brush is just awful.
    4.Minnesota is no where near California.
    5.Kris Kardashian will be in the bathroom when you need it.
    6.A basketball looks nothing like a football.
    7.Wedding pictures are suppose to go in an album and not just on the cover of People Magazine.

    There’s several more but I’ve taken up enough of your time.

  52. constance says:

    Because he just did a really stupid commercial and I thought to myself, “This reeks of Kashdashianonmics.”

    Good luck to him. He should have known, No job = No Kim

  53. stephanie says:

    I am with you about theory #6, Kim wants a wedding, but I think the millions they made off of this whole hoopla- the engagement, the wedding, and now the divorce- played no small part in making the show a go.

  54. Happy21 says:

    Its sick and disgusting. I don’t even live in the USA but with the economy the way that it is and have 10 million go down the drain for a fuckin’ TV show is a piss off. Miss Kim K should have to pay back all of that money. God, I bet the people who comped the wedding shit are pissed right off.

    Hell, I hate her and I’M pissed off!!

    She should be humiliated and embarrassed for what she has done for fame. I hope to not have to see any new photos of her out and about for a really, really long time. Its unfortunate, I enjoy my celebrity gossip mags and I almost want to boycott them because I don’t want to buy into her bullshit.

    God, she is an ASSHOLE!

  55. Vanden says:

    to quote Katt Williams

    “how sad… how HILARIOUSLY sad…”

    couldn’t care less why they’re splitting up

  56. Phoenix says:

    I hate it to say it but I’m slightly shocked that it happened so quickly. But the Kardashians need to fit as much as possible in to their 15 minutes, so I guess it makes sense! These two were NEVER going to work out, even if the wedding wasn’t all for the cameras, money, fame, gifts etc. Kris seems like a down to earth guy, who is also a jerk. Kim is an uptight, spoiled, boring bitch. I especially loved when Kim told Kris that it wouldn’t be “worth it” for her to move to Minnesota and that she wouldn’t live a “lesser lifestyle”. I get it Kim, living in anything less than an $8 million dollar home, just to live with your husband, not worth it!

  57. Frayed_Edges says:

    Kim just wanted a wedding – she felt it was the right time in her life for a wedding, and a Kardashian wedding would just be the biggest and best and most expensive. A lot of women focus solely on the wedding, not on the marriage – Kim just did this to epic proportions. I would have been surprised if they’d lasted a year.

  58. Lisa says:

    I think it’s a combo of all five theories listed above…

    SIGH…

  59. Aqua says:

    Even though most people believed that this marriage wouldn’t last.I find this whole thing just maddening and sickening.Since when did saying your wedding vows in from of hundreds of people not to mention the millions on T.V. become such a big joke and a PR stunt?If this is what they have done I find this family totally pathetic especially if this is the extent they are willing to go to for a buck.

  60. shalibali says:

    I cant stand all of this Kardashian hype. I cant believe that they are so popular, as they are all so fake. They put so much value on fame. Its so unmoral and wrong. Nothing in their life is real. Everything is almost a trade off for some more fame. I feel sorry for this family. So shallow are their lives!

  61. Firecracker says:

    Definitely #5.

    I never believed it from the beginning. Only for the show and ratings.

    Maybe E will cancel their show because they are so embarrassed by the big deal they made of the wedding. I can dream, can’t I?

  62. Kim says:

    Because she is a fame & money whore who did it only for a tv show. What a loser – what is she 30 with 2 divorces?! Such a loser!

    Ryan Secrist & E better dump this show – people hate her and the entire Kardashian family. He needs to distance himself from this trashy family or him and E will start getting back lash.

    Funny enough this fake for tv marriage will be what ends her reality career. People are over her antics.

  63. Rita says:

    It was just an Easy-Bake Oven wedding. As kids, we use to have them all the time. Brownie anyone?

  64. Got it says:

    Dr. Louis Turi predicted this .

  65. F5 says:

    Reason #988-Kris is genius:

    Everybody’s talking about Kim’s sorry ass again.. Mission accomplished

  66. minnie says:

    I hope he got paid well, and not only the Klan got it all.
    This show has practically gotten to the same point of that “angry woman plus 8″ show. What would the life of KK et al be without a reality show to live for?

  67. Agnes says:

    I’m going with “all of the above theories”.

  68. Heine says:

    A mix of 5 and 6. I think she wanted a wedding but knew it was all a lie and she did it for the money and the chance to have a big tacky wedding and cash in. Kris was just stupid enough to go along with it for awhile but like others have said, I think he grew a backbone and had had enough of the fakery.

    He actually asked Khloe if her marriage was fake in this leading way as though he was giving away that his and Kim’s was just for the cameras.

  69. T.C. says:

    The funny thing is everyone made fun of Khole’s quickie wedding but thought Kim’s was real. Baahahaha

  70. Nev says:

    someone isn’t COMPROMISING…they were filming and living with her sister for the two months…now this?….rash, reactive decision….what is marriage anymore really?
    geez.

  71. ZenB!tch says:

    obviously they never talked about any of this BEFORE they got married. Not that he looks like he is capable of speech.

    Why are they living with Mason-Dixon? They can afford their own pad.

  72. guest says:

    It is gross what they spent on that wedding. You could rebuild Haiti or provide new books and teachers to a whole struggling school district for the money they spent on that weddding. What was it for, just publicity.

  73. brin says:

    It’s fitting that they announced the divorce on Halloween cause the K Klan are freakin skary.

  74. Lady of the Lake says:

    Great theorizing, Kaiser – especially fond of #s 5 & 6 – here’s some more food for thought. This family sold its soul when Mama K managed (with skeevy brilliance) in a to turn Kim’s sex tape into a media empire. So much in the run-up to the wedding didn’t make sense. Seemed like Kris H wanted to call it off on many occasions – so either 5 or 6 makes sense. But let’s just say it was Mama and maybe Ryan S who decided it was time for a big wedding, and the wheels were set in motion. The only good thing that will MAYBE come out of it is that people feel so duped and annoyed, this will be the turning point – maybe the Kardashians have now truly jumped the shark, and we can move on to the next train wreck to distract us from the real woes of the world!

  75. mel says:

    That wedding was about as fake as her face. What a waste.

  76. MacScore says:

    @24 You don’t say:

    Yes, yes, yes!!!!!! The whole thing is disgusting. Perhaps we, the “viewers” – the “customers” of their fame-whoredom – are also to blame. Turn It Off now. There are so many more worthy things that we all could be doing with our lives; and the Kardashians should be taxed up the wazoo and made to return wedding gifts, at the _very least_.

  77. Judy says:

    Kris Humphries looks and sounds like Frankenstein, but I still like him better than ANY of the Kardashian TRASH (and I don’t like him at all). Kris Jenner should go to jail…she’s a certified PIMP, and I’m beyond sick of the Kardashian BRAND (what a joke); I’m sick of listening to Klassless Khloe scream out at Dancing with the Stars as though she’s in a barnyard; and I’m just plain sick of the SHALLOWNESS that is the Kardashians…and THAT should be their brand.

  78. gab says:

    Well I guess the Klan have learned how to make millions without getting peed on. Good for them.

  79. daisydoodle says:

    @hey Rita, when you make my easy-bake cake be careful not to water down the icing like I used to do when baking my cakes….the whole thing is pathetic,,,pretend is for children and Barbies, not 30 yr olds….

  80. Dixie says:

    The whole wedding was a steaming plate of kukukachu with a side of crazy!What a bunch of trashy people.

  81. Cherry Rose says:

    Theories 2,5, and 6.

    I hope after this whole debacle, people will decide to stop watching the Kardashians, and to stop giving them any attention.

    This family is bringing a whole new level to famewhoring. But obviously Pimp Mama Kris and Kim know that their time in the spotlight is not going to match must longer. Gotta milk it for all it’s worth now.

  82. CRASH says:

    Do you KNOW what St Jude’s Children’s Hospital could’ve done with that cash??? Probably saved some children’s lives…but this vapid disgusting POS needed a fake 10,000,000.00 wedding.

  83. Harley says:

    @Tia-co-sign-it was the first thing I though when I heard about this. Gay couples who have been in committed, loving relationships *still* can’t get married in many places, but this trick can and make a mockery of it. I am really starting to loathe this whole klan.

  84. I.want.shoes says:

    Theory #5. This b!tch only loves one person: herself. I don’t think she just wanted a wedding- she has already been married before.

  85. Camille says:

    I agree completely with Theories 5 and 6.

    I’m now expecting Kat-face to do the Pity Party Tour of 2011. Sigh.

  86. Quest says:

    ITA with Theory 6.

    So much millions spent on that wedding and the marriage only lasted 72 days.

    *muahahahahaahhahaha* LMAO

    Edit: Is Kim K or Kris H gonna be the Thanksgiving Turkey?

  87. kiki says:

    The only think keeping me from saying #5 is his part in the saga. Why would *he* go along w/ all this fakery? Maybe the payoff was too good to refuse, but dang at what price self-respect?

    I wonder what Seacrest will say about this? The only solution is to stop watching. I’m an E-oholic but I got off the Kardashian train long ago.

  88. Dhavy says:

    I hope this is the beginning of the end of these people..

    It’s disgusting how people are all over this trashy family and how they manage to get media attention and money

  89. Jover says:

    Excellent comments hotpockets and 63; you may be onto something that this fake marriage/divorce will end her fake “reality” pseudo career – but why in the name of everything holy and sacred is reggie bush even near this sludge bag. doesn’t he have people to tell him she’s toxic and he’ll be a laughing stock – it’s not like he’s hurting in the ladies’ department.

  90. Angie says:

    I just wanna say I don’t think the show is fake. But I do think that 70% of the reason why she said “YES” to the proposal was for the “moment” Kris H. created and that huge ring, and the fact that she gets to have a wedding. 30% percent was because she loved him. I agree with what Khloe said about Kim. “Kim falls in love with EVERYBODY and when she falls in love she loves hard.” If you have seen Kim with past boyfriends you will see that its true. Kim likes to be in a relationship and falls for everyone. I actually have a relative that is like this…I won’t say a name but she has been married 5 times. So this can happen even out of the “Hollywood World”. It has nothing to do with the fact that Kim has a show in my opinion. Kim fell in love with Kris but fell in love with the idea even more of having a Wedding.

  91. Amanda G says:

    Theory #5 is spot on. Face it, that family has sold their souls. Nothing is sacred to them. Not their bodies, children or marriage…nothing. I hate that family and I can’t believe people don’t see that it’s all fake. Just wait for the divorce special in 3…2…1…

  92. GiGi says:

    Theory 6.

    I was in bed with the flu this entire week and watched all 4 hours of the wedding thing. And I came out really liking Kris H. and really despising Kim K. & Kris Jenner. He was really steamrolled. I liked especially when Kris J. stated that she hadn’t lined up any transportation for Kris H’s family… completely unapologetically.

    Kris H. was right – Kim could’ve just plugged anyone in – it was never about their relationship at all.

  93. LeeLoo says:

    My guess is this is the catalyst that will end things for the Kardashians. For Paris Hilton it was her DUI, for Kim it will be her quickie marriage and divorce. She’s not going to have a lot of credibility after this.

    I actually feel very sorry for Kris. I think he’s the one that got hosed out of this whole thing. I think he got used for whatever little game the Kardashians want to play and he figured things would be good once her reality television career died down and all of the wedding nonsense. In the end I hope this tarnishes their reputation more than his. I know he didn’t come off as that decent of a guy on the show but I think he has more character than the rest of that bunch.

    I really hope he pushes for an annullment on this one. I think that’s how it needs to go down. I think Kris got used and it sounds like a fraudulent marriage to me.

  94. Mamahawk says:

    My favorite comment “learned how to make millions without getting peed on.” This family makes all the other reality stars look like Mother Teresa. Mother Kris is a gangster and no one wants fame/money more than her. She is the one controlling all the decisions.

  95. b626 says:

    WHO get’s the ring??
    I hope battles her for it.
    That will be much more interesting than the wedding.
    God knows he needs to pawn it.
    He has no job!

  96. Madison says:

    Theory 5. People will do anything for fame and money. I was looking at handbags over the weekend and the one that caught my eye was a design by the Kardashians, I walked away as I refuse to spend one dime on these greedy bitches. Can’t wait to see the next stupid victim the mother lines up for Kim, hope Kris Humprhies was at least smart enough to get paid a few mil for marrying Kim.

  97. BerMan says:

    Two different worlds , two different life styles. Perhaps they truly believe it could work out. That their love will prevail. But the fame,media, her woman warriors sisters, the shows, the whole constant spotlight was only working for Kim’s “career”. Kris really needed his basketball career like yesterday to keep him busy with his job and feeling like he’s really doing something useful. Not posing and wearing monkey suits. I believe they really had something. The Kardashian life style and world is not for a normal man. Its for a man who has the same “values” as they do. Good Luck and see Kim Kardashian in the movies,t.v., magazines, talk shows, Sears, tell all books, survival books, etc. etc. etc.

  98. GiGi says:

    b626 – I just read that she’s asked that the prenup be upheld and that any and all jewelry she obtained before, during or after their marriage be retained by her… this would include the ring!

  99. mln76 says:

    I am surprised at how gullible people are. The ring was rented and will go back to the jewelers. The whole marriage was a publicity stunt and because of the idiotic public at large it worked.

  100. Andie B says:

    These people make a mockery out of marriage and are disgusting. I have been with my hubby for 21 years and we have been married for nearly 16 years. We are not even 40 yet. There were 30 guests at our wedding and it cost around $6,000US. All that money they spent on that Kardashian charade could have helped a lot of worthy causes. Sickening!

  101. ol cranky says:

    I think she decided to file when she realized everyone had figured out this was all for the publicity

  102. honeybunz says:

    Kris humphris dodged a gel injected cat faced weavalicious narssisitic ditzy slutty bullet!!!

  103. GiGi says:

    I just had a terrible thought… what if they *don’t* get divorced and she comes out in a month saying that all of this really made her realize how much she loves him and blah, blah, blah…

    Then there will be more Kim & Kris instead of less…

  104. Zelda says:

    It’s because gay people have destroyed the sanctity of marriage with their loving legal unions. Obviously. Poor Kim never had a chance.

    The GOP was right, guys.

    #sarcasm #aweddingisntaprombitch

  105. F5 says:

    She must be pulling her hair out over Taylor Swift’s nude pics :D Bad, bad timing, Taylor;)

  106. Stubbylove says:

    This stupid bitch will do this again and again. Next she will play the “poor Kim can’t find love or the rebound guy card”. The general public is stupid enough to eat it up so she makes money off it. The entire family is a bunch of scumbags – but they ain’t no dummies when it comes to playin’ people & makin’ money – this is for sure.

  107. notsure says:

    This makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. Not because I care about either of them, but because of all the money they wasted on that tacky wedding, and it didn’t even last. Of course it made me nauseous from the get go, but…ugh.

    The good things they could actually do for other people with all that money…but I keep forgetting that the Kardashian clan (at least the women) are the most selfish people ever.

    SMH!

  108. wtf says:

    hahahaha i knew they wouldnt see xmas together..pathetic

  109. truthful says:

    heehee, I just saw the papers and she has Laura Wasserman??

    wow

    I saw something about spousal support checked off, sooo maybe Kimmie Katface will pay him to keep his trap shut.

    cause Kris can’t pay her, smdh.

  110. Green_Eyes says:

    Somewhere LiHo is vomiting thru her brand new snap on Veneers and crying to her pimp mama Dinho “why in the he’ll did you not come up with this kind of PR Wedding for me dammit”!! “I, I mean we could have been rich and I could have screwed Companies out of free stuff and screwed one poor ignorant guy intend of being screwed by all those Johns just to score for my “meds” and new shiny clean teeth”. Vomits again….as Dinho keeps reading all the press Kim is getting aloud and the number of responses Kim is getting instead of her precious lil coke sniffing, meth smoking, herpes giving lil Angel LiHo!

  111. Mouse says:

    Who didn’t see this coming? Agreed #26, this person makes Paris Hilton look sweet and angelic.

  112. Bopa says:

    I want to go with the “not drinking the koolaid” theory. He didn’t seem willing to go with the flow. I think the family believes that athletes are dim witted and will fall for anything. They wanted another Lamar and that isn’t what they got. I think the NBA lockout is also a factor. Kris doesn’t make enough to be ok if this season doesn’t happen.

  113. Kloops says:

    Mostly Theory 5 but I am surprised it’s over so soon. I’d have thought they’d have a 6 month contract and drag it out with a cheating scandal. I think the big doofus got sick of it and Pimp Mama couldn’t keep him in line. Wish the public would lose interest in them.

  114. Barker says:

    There was a blind item just before the wedding that stated Theory #5. everything on their show is scripted.

    I am guessing that the original lie about the reason for divorce would have been his career and being away so much but the NBA lockout through a wrench into that pity party.

    Is there a warranty on wedding gifts in that if the marriage doesn’t last 3 months you get your gift back? Should be.

  115. Green_Eyes says:

    Oh for Kim I say 6, for Kris Jenner I say A MOST DEFINITE 5!!! That woman would sell her grandson to the witch from Hanzel & Gretel if there was $$$$$ to be made a lot of PR!!

  116. kas says:

    The Soup will be magnificent this week.

  117. pwal says:

    I am furious. ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS!!! And yet, not surprised.

    Because as many have mentioned, getting married isn’t a $10M proposition. And certainly, $10M wasn’t incentive enough for her to stay in a marriage for an even 90 days. $13,888.89 a day for 72 days… really?

    I seriously want to punch Kim Kardashian in the fcuking face.

    And thank you, People Magazine, for pissing away good money on a cover for this bull$h*t!!!

  118. Agnes says:

    I hope he’s classy about it and just walks away from this heap of trash and the main trashbag he married.

  119. Deb says:

    I, too, believed she was so desperate to have a wedding that it didn’t matter who she married. I also agree with the tabs’ theories that Kris Humphries wasn’t “drinking the Kool-Aid”. Who can blame the guy?

  120. BabyCakes says:

    Who really expected it to last anyways? That marriage was a sham from the beginning like most things in Hollywood are. It was a paycheck.. plain and simple. But we all knew that.

  121. GiGi says:

    Kris Humphries states, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce… I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”

    Cue “Kim & Kris in Therapy” and “The Kim & Kris Reunion Special”

    This thing is going to draaaagggg…

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    You have to wonder whether this will get a mention. After all, McHale has an E!-administered embargo preventing him from mentioning ‘the tape’. This marrivorce may be added to the list.

  126. michkabibbles says:

    i think she did it for the money. if reports of her prenup are true, doesnt she get half of his money? he’s not a major star in the nba, but he’s worth more than just a few million. if she was only married for 72 days, theres no reason she shouldnt just file for an annulement. (i might be wrong, but doesn’t the prenup not apply if they just annul instead of divorce?)

  127. PleaseICU says:

    I think it’s probably a combo of theories # 5 and 6. Though I’m not sure how much Kris was clued in on as to Kim and her family’s true motivations.

    I think the plan was probably for this to last a bit longer but after being stuck in a NYC apartment with Kim and Kourtney he probably couldn’t take it anymore and wasn’t as easily controlled as they initially believed. And once they couldn’t get Kris to fall in line and play along like a good boy the only option was to cut their losses and cut him out. Anything to protect to empire.

    And poor Rob. I’m not a fan but he was finally trying to do something semi-productive to get out of the shadow of his sisters and they make it impossible. As if Khloe’s screaming harpy routine to get camera time in the audience every week Rob’s on DWTS isn’t bad enough. Now Kim just had to get in on it and prove she’s an even bigger selfish sister.

    It’s not like this was ever a real marriage for her. It was a wedding so the empire could make a few extra millions. Just insert groom. She couldn’t wait 3 weeks until her brother got kicked off DWTS before announcing? She couldn’t let him have a fraction of the limelight for a couple more weeks, could she?

    She just had to file and then formally announce her divorce on the same day baby bro’s dancing live in front of 18 million people and then put in front of an entire press line of domestic and international media outlets for post-show interviews? How convenient.

  128. QQ says:

    Lol…who gives a f*ck?I mean, really, come on…big deal.

  129. ManicPixieDreamGirl says:

    Kris always seemed really naive to me. DId he really think Kim would would just give up her fame whoring & media attention so she could move back to Minnesota and become a housewife? ahahahahah

  130. Kim says:

    If she had any class (she doesnt) she would send back all the gifts & pay back all the vendors who gave her free stuff.

    If i was a guest i would demand my gift back.

    Who gets the fake ring??

  131. lisa says:

    awww.. LOL

    @zelda.. perfect comment. I don’t want to make this into a political thing. but seriously. Gay people destroy marriage. Hah.. And people like Kim can get married however they want and divorce at 72 or so days.

    I know a friend that got a divorce after 3 weeks of marriage. We read comments on this site and others about unmarried couples vs married ones.. well getting married doesn’t mean it will last longer.

    I was watching a promo for the show when Kris said when he and Kim have kids and move away nobody will know or care about her anymore.. the look on her face. All she cared about was changing her wedding dress and being seen. There was never ONE passionate moment between these two people. NOT one. Nothing about their body language said LOVE or Passion or desire. Nothing.

    Rob was just seen talking about how not to believe the rumors.. Hah..

    They should all be ashamed.. but to be ashamed you have to have some moral fiber.. they don’t.

  132. MuhreeuhMaria says:

    I’d just like to say, “WHO THE FUCK DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING?!” And honestly, I should’ve made bets with the idiots that thought this “marriage” would actually last. (But I would have lost,since I thought after three months they’d split.) First off, Kim just wanted to get married for the sake of having an over-the-top, highly-publicized wedding. I think she’s terrified of being alone. I’m not sure if Kris acutally loved Kim, or just loved having something to tap. And lastly, I have NO respect for this famewhore. I mean, fucking Khloe’s marriage isn’t even on the rocks. SMH.

  133. Blue says:

    I think she married him because she thought he would be a good little lap dog and do as he was told, unfortunately for her he grew a back bone and refused to toe the line. I don’t feel sorry for her though. I find it hilarious that Khloe and Lamar met, got engaged, and married in a month and are still going, for what 2 years?

  134. Jojo says:

    Here’s a crack theory (theory #7) I’m inventing, just to mix things up (although Bella, Lynne, and Gigi all alluded to something similar):

    What if they at first K&K weren’t having major problems, just normal spats. But then the media began hounding them, exaggerating the extent of the problems.

    Being saavy media whores, the Kardashians recognized this as an opportunity: they decided rather than to fight the rumors they could, to run with the $ituation. Maybe the plan is to have Kim file, just for the publicity but then they will miraculously make up for the holidays?

    Discuss.

  135. Enny says:

    I do think she intended it to last a least a couple of years, long enough for her to have a baby and another reality show based around its birth. I doubt she planned on the whole farce ending quite this quickly.

  136. lolas says:

    does this mean that Khloe’s wedding was real? Or are they fake together but their’s has to stick for some reason? What scares me is that I suddenly am curious about Khloe, as if she’s some beacon of hope for this dismal family, who have managed to spin all this from a sex tape.

  137. Jessica says:

    Of course KK only wanted to have a big party where she was the star!!

    my fav quote though is the one from People. So living with Kourtney and Scott wasn’t ideal. Yeah i remember that part of the vows where you say “i’ll stay with you so long as it’s ideal” She’s such a dumb fuck :)

  138. april says:

    I think she was infatuated with him and she fell out of the infatuation. Didn’t they marry only six months after meeting each other? I think him not working and he lost hundreds of thousands of dollars reportedly in that scam diminished him in Kim’s eyes. Too bad money means that much to her to end her marriage.

  139. Nev says:

    he just gave a statement saying that he will do whatever it takes to stop all this….like i said, this is the new All My Children folks..

  140. Emily says:

    I think it’s some combination of all these theories. I’m sure he told her about wanting to move to Minnesota, she just thought she’d be able to convince him otherwise, or that the NBA would put him somewhere and she could stay in LA because he was so busy with games and practice. On the flip side, he probably cared for her and thought once he got her away from her family things would be even better.

    This is why Hollywood marriages will make you crazy. For my husband and I to get divorced, we would have to be at a point where we’d tried EVERYTHING (counseling, seperations, etc.), and you can’t do that in 72 days. Most people would be so embarrassed that their marriage fell apart so quickly they’d put in the work for that reason alone. But, Kim Kardashian has 0 shame.

  141. Julia says:

    When will the populace stop endorsing that Kardashian Klan ?

    Those people have mafia like diversion of money and other shameful stunts to get richer and richer. They are totally immoral and are masters in manipulation and fraud. They represent the bottom of the barrel pop culture wise.

    They are one of the most shameful face of mediocrity, ultra liberalism and money grabing a la american.

    I hope the backlash will begin soon and more sense will be instilled to our western youth starting with the US who idolize those frauds.

  142. Kathy says:

    What career? Does she have any noticeable talent? These reality people becoming famous for NOTHING really gets my goat. I’ve never even watched on episode of their show, I only know what I’m forced to see on Magazines or “News” shows, but I feel sure she does nothing of any intrinsic value.

  143. Shannon says:

    THIS is what is eroding the institution of marriage. Not gay people who love each other. THIS. A man and a woman who give up after 2 and a half months of marriage.

  144. BerMan says:

    NUTS, I was reading another bloggers post and it came to mind that this will only add to her fame whoring. She’ll do the interviews crying, talk shows crying how she work so hard to keep the marriage going, blah, blah, blah. I believe her family has something to add to all this mess, because no one files for divorce with out thinking about it for a long time, but give me a freakin break 72 days into a her marriage ! Cmon Kim WTF are you about lady? Did you really jerk everyone around with this B.S. fairy tell wedding, love & marriage. Is every crony around you are making out like a bandit with this b.s. charade and crocodile tears? Lady you & the K clan are really pulling a number on all of us. Thanks for the mindless stories that lets us all forget for a moment our own little dramas in life. Sure been interesting.

  145. Tiffany says:

    It is totally #5 ALL a lie. The guy was cast in March, married in August, discontinued as a series regular in October.

  146. mia girl says:

    I agree with all of you, but I think he had enough. Once word leaked late last week about him bring part of an actual E! “search” for a husband (and not even her first choice!) I think he checked out. She filed first but I think he called it quits, bc honestly.

    I don’t see how this benefits her or her “brand”. I didn’t think it was possible, but she jumped the shark of famewhore moves with this.

    It downhill from here

  147. Viv says:

    she has no shame. you can’t even last 6 months? what the hell? if I had been a wedding guest I would be so pissed off.
    Note to the attention grabbing catface: next time you marry for fun at least ask for your presents to be donations to a charity.

  148. DoMaJoReMc says:

    I know this doesn’t seem like a tell-tale sign that things were not ‘LOVING’….but the way they kissed. They always kissed like they were just barely touching each other’s lips.

  149. SolitaryAngel says:

    Theory #7: this is a Speidi trick–fake “divorce” followed by fake reconciliation . These people are beyond disgusting.

  150. Dea says:

    Hahahahaha. Lol this has to be a real ” royal wedding” I have said it many times and again and again. This family needs mental help. They are just delusional, unscrupulous, greedy and they the garbage of US. It is so sad that US media promote. This trash family who have become a laughing stock in the whole world.
    I have tried my best to promote as much as possible againts this family on my FB page and on website SayNoToKardashinan. This family needs to go away sooner rather than later. Thy are destroying the young generation. Period.

  151. teehee says:

    its all publicity. Its about as real as Crystal and Hef’s wedding deal. It was all for show. And why are people believing any single thing out of these puppets anyway??

  152. She should just marry her mirror,and be done with it.

  153. Carolyn says:

    E has the story as its top article at the moment but under the guise of sisters tweeting their support. Ridikulous. Kudos to all of you for expresing such outrage in logical, intelligent and cohesive prose. Not a crazy rant in sight. That’s why I love this site. Maintain the rage, people. Interestingly, Kim is at the Melbourne Cup horse race here in Australia today. I doubt this story has broken over here.

  154. Lana Elise says:

    Quick question – do you call Kourtney’s son Mason-Dixon as a nickname? Because his name’s Mason Dash Disick…. Love the site, love the nicknames (Racoon McPantless and Hamm-Dong/Fass-Dong are my favourites) but I’m just clarifying!!

  155. Happy21 says:

    I hope that Kris Humpries leaves this with his head held high and bashes the shit out of this family and makes it clear to all those people ( I can’t believe there are those people) who think the sun rises and sets out of the Kardashian ass, that their are a bunch of famewhoring assholes who are willing to play with people’s feelings and break people’s hearts just to be famous.

    While I think that Kris Humphries may be level headed, I do think he probably deep down knew this was all bullshit. Probably he got introduced to KK and was starstruck and love struck by her, he proposed becuase hell she was Kim Kardashian. She said yes and he probably tried to supress his gut feelings. I don’t watch the show but read a bit about it and he seems level headed and not like the type of guy who would get used to being on TV and having his life picked apart by the media.

    The KKK (Kardashian Klux Klan) are despicable excuses for human beings if you ask me!

  156. Kaiser says:

    Lana – I call him Mason-Dixon because that’s what his name (Mason Disick) sounds like to me.

  157. Seal Team 6 says:

    And yet most states and the Feds don’t recognize committed and loving same-sex relationships.

  158. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Is anyone else thinking this family has moved into Heidi/Spencer Pratt territory? Literally nothing is sacred anymore. This family will sell any part of their lives for a quick buck. It’s so beyond disgusting and pathetic that I can’t even come up with adequate words. How are the Kartrasshians relevant anymore? Who buys their stupid sh*t, watches their shows, etc?

  159. lisa says:

    Kris issued a statement

    In a statement, the basketball player says, ”I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce.” Humphries adds in his statement, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents, and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”

    well there you go. it is official.. He is a Kardashian..

    And poor Rob. I’m not a fan but he was finally trying to do something semi-productive to get out of the shadow of his sisters and they make it impossible.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I hadn’t thought about that, since Rob has been keeping a relatively low profile, considering he’s on DWTS. And apparently, Kris Jenner has a book coming out either today or tomorrow.

    But since most of us know how real celebs roll when it comes to announcing separation/divorces i.e. waiting until the end of the week or for long, holiday weekends when tabloids are shut down, I have to believe that choosing the beginning of the work week to announce it was quite deliberate. She will make every tabloid cover, unless something huge happens or the tabloids suddenly get indignant and decide not to indulge this heffa’s foolishness.

  161. dragonlady sakura says:

    Darn you, Kim, now I owe my sister $20. Your marriage could have least lasted until January, geez.

  162. Belle Epoch says:

    Something that has not been mentioned yet:

    Lurch is not making any money, and he is not on a team, and he is not staying in shape – PLUS he gave hundreds of thousands of his own money to a “friend” who, instead of investing it, squandered it and tried to flee the country. I think they caught the guy trying to fly out of Canada.

    So now Lurch’s net worth is nothing – which is the worst sin of all in Kardashian land!

  163. Kim says:

    He should write a tell all and make money. Sure it could be as fake as their love and marriage but he might as well make a buck off it like Kim is trying to do. Who cares if it is all fake – EVERYTHING about the whole Kardashian family is fake including this whole marriage.

    But im sure he signed a contract/non disclosure when he signed on to fake marry Kim so he cant write anything/make his own money besides what he was paid up front.

  164. anonymoose says:

    1. Because she’s a pill.

    2. For the publicity.

    3. What was the question?

  165. hairball says:

    I agree about what a DISGUSTING way to spend that amount of money. All the good it could have done for so many people….it makes me sick.

    Not that I had much respect for her to begin with, but I have ZERO respect for her and her family.

    How STUPID does E! think the public is? Was anyone buying this sh*t??

    SIDENOTE: Don’t care either way about Tom Cruise, but it’s pretty low to make a small child a butt of a joke. (The links above)

  166. Andrea says:

    I do not believe that this was strictly a sham marraige for many reasons.

    One: Kris seems too smart (for all of those who say he is dumb, if you watched any of the episodes of him leading up to this wedding, he was standing up for himself, like he stated Scott, Lamar, and even Bruce do not).

    Two: I do believe he loved her but as someone mentioned above, she falls in love too quickly, its infatuation not love for Kim. She loves the idea of being married over marriage itself. She doesn’t like that its hard and that Kris challenged her selfish lifestyle at every turn. Kris even mentioned MANY times that he was just filling in a slot for her dream wedding; that was totally true but does not mean the marriage was a sham, just that Kim was more obsessed with a wedding over Kris.

    Three:He did want to move to Minnesota and she felt she convince him otherwise, same with lifestyle differences..They should have discussed all of this prior to marriage.

    All in all, I think they fell into the trap many people fall into and this is why the divorce rate is so high; they didn’t communicate well on their lifegoals and how they picture their lievs to be etc and thus had vast differences and its now ended.

    As a side note, Scott would be perfect for Kim, both selfish and money hungry. I wish Scott would finally get dumped by Kourt. She deserves far better.

  167. the original bellaluna says:

    She is still such a fame-whoring asshole.

    Lardassian is just a fame-whoring mess.

    I don’t buy for a second that this was a “marriage;” it was only a “wedding” spectacular to feed her ego.

    Hopefully, Kris will be able to find someone willing to have sex (and maybe even settle down) with him after this Kartrashian fiasco.

  168. Victoria says:

    how is it that khloe and lamar are still married after knowing each other for three seconds and kim and kris by definition courted longer and they are already splitsville? lol

  169. Auds says:

    What I find interesting, from a pop culture perspective, are how these non-entities, she a thirty going 14 [that's how she sounds like] talentless flubber arse, and he a behemoth knuckle dragger, are featured all over the world. No kidding. They even appeared on the front page of an online Australian newspaper. So I can only imagine the cottage industry, ie the Kardashian pimp mother weaving her witchy wand behind the scenes.
    This marriage was a farce, purely orchestrated to rake in cash.

  170. Anon73 says:

    LMAO that TODAY is the day that Jessica Simpson announces her pregnancy. Kardashian divorce off the headlines !!!

  171. sarah talks says:

    Kim’s not going to have it annulled because she has to justify keeping the $2 million dollar ring.

    Poor Kris spent all his money on it and he’s unemployed.

    It was a wrap when Kris Jenner’s eyes popped out of her head when she learned he didn’t have a job.

  172. PleaseICU says:

    @anon73…Can you just imagine the attempts at a temper tantrum (that is, if she could still move her face at all) if Jessica Simpson’s confirmation of her pregnancy bumped Kim’s divorce announcement from the cover of the tabs/mags this week? Not sure who would throw the bigger tantrum: Kim or Mama Kris?

    Most celebs leak breakups on late Thursday or Friday so they get lost over the weekend. She filed for divorce and had a press release drafted and sent out on a Monday morning. And on the day where her brother faces a full press line of US and international media outlets for DWTS. She was totally timing this for maximum media coverage. Now I kinda hope that Jessica’s baby bump and confirmation trumps Kim’s divorce shenanigans.

    Uh…I’m guesing people magazine, E channel and the channel that carries the Kardashian show won’t be shelling out $$$ for anymore “fairytell weddings” or coverage for Kim. She made a fool out of those media outlets.

  174. Original Bee says:

    This is Kris’ statement:

    “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce,” he said in a statement to E! News Monday. “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”

    So, apparently he doesn’t want his marriage to end. I wonder if he even knew she was filing for divorce. This should be interesting.

  175. sarah talks says:

    Also, Kim K. has been randomly comparing herself to icon Elizabeth Taylor.

    Don’t be surprised if she gets married again soon.

    She has the perfume, an acting gig with Tyler Perry and now she just has to get married 6 more times and twice to the same man. Kris was her 2nd marriage so maybe she’ll remarry him for more publicity.

  176. Syko says:

    Kaiser, as Michael K has told us many times, the S in “Disick” is silent.

    I suspect all Minnesotans are breathing a sigh of relief tonight, as they dodged the Kardashian bullet.

    I don’t like any of these people. I don’t get why they are so famous and rich. If I let some guy pee on me and film it, will I get famous and rich? I’m just appalled at the waste in their lives, and the waste of their lives. What good do they do for anyone? All that money spent on that over-the-top wedding. In this economy, especially, they should be embarrassed at that. Too many hungry kids and people without homes for one not-very-pretty girl to spend that much just to play bride.

    And I’m going to be horribly old fashioned here… when did big white weddings stop being for first marriages? And when did brides start to let their boobs hang out of their wedding dresses? Can’t we at least pretend at modesty and good taste?

  177. Andrea says:

    Does anyone see her similar to Katie Price in the UK, although I do adore Katie and do think she is a shrude businesswoman, but honestly, they both became famous over similar reasons and they both blow through marriages and men, and they both compare themselves to Elizabeth Taylor.

  178. Cinderella says:

    I think she’s still got it for Reggie. She only used Kris as a fill-in. Kris should just follow the exit sign and still retain half of his dignity.

  179. Swan Hakka says:

    Face it, KK is a horrible, horrible human being who exists merely to “market” herself. She has no talent of any kind and isn’t interesting in any way. Her only claims to fame are: having a father that represented O.J., doing a sleazy sex tape and having a big butt. Why anyone cares about her, her sisters or who she marries is a total mystery. The quicker she disappears into obscurity, the better off we will all be.

  180. buell says:

    Here I was hoping that this marriage would be over when “’til death do us part” happened.

  181. Sam says:

    I’m surprised it ended so quickly, thought they would stretch it out a year tops…I unfortunately watched the wedding special on Youtube, I have to say Kris Humphries came off better than the entire Kardashian clan

    You could tell he was not completely into it at all, was just going along with it to keep E!, Ryan Seacrest and Kris Jenner happy as his hands were probably tied…I had a scan through his Twitter account, I think he did love her more than she loved him at the start of their courtship particularly….

    I’m starting to like Kris H, I do admire him for having the balls to speak up to the Kardashian clan and not afraid to speak his mind…I admire his honesty, he seems like the traditional type, very low key…

    I won’t be surprised if the public support turns to Kris H and by then I hope the Kardashians are toast and fade back into obscurity!

  182. Sophie says:

    How stupid does People magazine and E feel at this moment for pouring millions for a 72 day marriage?
    Kardashian Klan used them and profited like hell from this FAKE marriage and they do not give a damn about it.
    Can’t believe there are people who watch and follow their FAKE shows, FAKE faces, FAKE brains, FAKE bodies, complete FAKE human beings. Damn this family for ever!!! Amen!!

  183. mln76 says:

    Ugh I hate to say it but Kim and her fake ass is even lower than a Lohan. At least Lindsay used to be a little bit talented .

  184. lisa says:

    @Sophie

    I watched E tonight to see how they handled it.. and E issued a statement about how the K’s were a tight family that have always been open and sharing all aspects of their lives.. and that E supported them and would continue to air the shows and highlight this unusual family (not word for word) but that was the general take.

    so in other words.. E is loving this and probably thinking how to promote the next season of the show. People Mag lost their cred a long long time ago. They are nothing put a tabloid now. When in the past they could at least be trusted to highlight real stories and to give the truth about celebrities. Now I don’t trust that old idea.. Until it is in People don’t believe it.

    That became mute such a long time ago. Which is why I cancelled my subscription.

  185. Linnie says:

    Think of all the people that wasted 2 precious hours of their lives watching the wedding. Ha, ha, suckers.

  186. Memphis says:

    Hell, I’m surprised they lasted a whole 72 days.

    Kim wanted a wedding and any sucker would do. Momma Jenner wanted to make her spoiled brat a sh*t load more cash..and as fate would have it, along came Kris (the K initial was a perfect little heaven sent bonus) and wah-la… true love Kardashian style.

    I feel bad for Lurch. He didn’t seem to be in on the joke. I think he thought she actually cared for him.

  187. Ron says:

    NO COMPARISONS TO ELIZABETH TAYLOR KIM!!
    Elizabeth was phenomemally beautiful, pheomenally talented, and phenomenally generous. You are none of those things and never will be.

  188. CindyBman says:

    I think the divorce is real. I agree that Kim thinks her path to eternal fame is try and be Elizabeth Taylor. I can’t believe I typed Elizabeth Taylor’s name in the same sentence as Kim’s. Twice.

    However, I think this backlash by EVERYONE posting here will get back to Mama Kris. ALL of us are begging for the show to end and how *any* respect (ha!) anyone *might* have had for them is completely gone. She’s is NOT going to want her meal ticket to end.

    So, probably right before the new season starts, Kim will withdraw the divorce petition (not because SHE wants to) so they will be in everyone’s good grace again. Blech.

    I have a couple of questions though (and I would search the net myself but I don’t want to give KK the Google hit!):
    - I didn’t know she was married once – was it someone famous? Was she really young? Was it before or after the sex tape?
    - Who was her sex tape partner?

    Thanks!

  189. Sophie says:

    @Lisa: you are so right. That it what shocks me. That media is not worried anymore about substance, just ratings, ratings!! How said is that. I really cannot believe it in fact. The people that run these media outlets must be the most immoral people that exist out there on the face of this earth. This is complete trash and so unjust!!

  190. Assistantrachel says:

    @ Ron: very well put.
    Now that the dumb bitch filed for divorce, can E please for the love of God stop airing that joke of a wedding!?

  191. Alessandro says:

    Unfortunately Kim Kardashian became a part of my awareness, against my will, due to her fame-for-nothing antics. She is little better than a hooker. Her face looks old and witchy because of plastic surgery. She’s trying to look like Angelina Jolie, another fake face.Her makeup is a turn-off, I hate a woman who looks like this. If people keep watching her stupid crap, she’ll continue to bilk everyone.

  192. Catherine says:

    Sad, just sad. I really hope it wasn’t some sort of publicity stunt.

  193. Mary says:

    i told you it would end by halloween..wonder what took 72 days.

  194. Whothefiis says:

    Does anyone else REALLY want to know more about the Rose McGowan “cult” story? LOL

  195. Nona says:

    Is anyone really surprised??? i think not!
    PEOPLE PEOPLE..STOP WATCHING THEIR SHOWS AND MAKING THESE NOBODYS FAMOUS!!!
    SHE IS TRASHHHHHH, HER AND HER FAMILY!
    i can’t wait till they fade away.. just like paris hilton did!

  196. sam says:

    She was married for like 4 yrs at 19 to some skeevy music producer named damon thomas or something. Not that long ago he was trashing her and her fam to the media, bit icant remember everything he said. The sex tape came after with brandy’s bro ray j

  197. mrsezc says:

    OMG I am so shocked!! (NOT)
    I think I knew it was in trouble when it was reported that his family thought their wedding was over the top and a circus. I really think Kim is jealous of Khloe and Lamaar. Kim is too selfish to be married to anyone but herself.
    I’m just thinking of all that money wasted when there are so many homeless people, hungry kids and animals that are dying and she drops 10 million like it 10 dollars. Sad.

  198. Joanna says:

    Why does everybody keep talking about how much their wedding cost? Do they not realize that probably 90% of the vendors, whatever you call them, probably donated their time/products/places for no cost just to be featured on the show or mentioned in one of the tabloids? What they actually had to pay for was probably peanuts to them, with as much money as they have.

    p.s. I think she prob filed for divorce b/c she realized she couldn’t have everything the way she wanted. Either that or she freaked that he’s not working right now. It’s pretty telling when she told him she couldn’t deal with a lesser lifestyle. Can you say “spoiled bitch?”

  199. Sassy says:

    My take? The KK show is scripted and the “divorce” is part of the plot. A massive hoax that is making $$$ for E channel, Seacrest, and the Jenner/Kardashian Klan. Mom Jenner is on the talk show circuit plugging her new book. I say to the J/K’s, make the money while the public is buying – there is only one time period that you can do this, and hurry, before the darling daughters start fading. I also think that Humphries was no more than an actor hired for a role. He made some income during basketball lockout. I predict that the next chapter will be a tearful reconciliation between the recently betrothed duo.

  200. Callumna says:

    A whore so whorry, she’d whore out her wedding day AND whore out her divorce.

    Once saw 2 seconds of an episode of Mother Trashian trying to convince her daughter TO get nekkid for cash and do Old Man Playboy’s old grimy mag and probably him too.

    These long-in-the-tooth, plastic old mom and plastic whore need to leave the game now.

    The jig is up. The marriage was a total sucker dance to the audience. Audience been had, now we out!

  201. Genevieve says:

    And once again I say…it disgusts me beyond belief that a man & a woman can make a mockery of marriage all they want, but God forbid that 2 same sex partners who are truly in love can’t get married.

  202. Feebee says:

    204 comments ha ha ha ha. Nobody’s impressed, everyone guessed and there’s 204 comments to prove it and yet they’re just a drop in the bucket.

    Seeing People’s cover of Kim in her wedding dress. If they (People editors) had any brains they’d be embarrassed they either fell for it or went along with the charade.

    Irreconcilable differences her ass. 72 days!!!!! And yet NOTHING from the crowd that preaches allowing gay human to marry would sully the sanctity of marriage but this (???!!!) is a-ok.

  203. hairball says:

    After all these reality shows and sh*t for brains losers who become famous for NOTHING, I pretty much believe this is all scripted out. The divorce etc.

    It’s just f*cking embarrassing and disgusting. Are we really this stupid America?

  204. MrsRut says:

    My theory is that the guy is just a douche. Kim wanted to get married so badly, she overlooked it. Once the wedding was over, she couldn’t take it anymore. If you have ever watched the show, you will know that he makes Scott look like a catch…

  205. Scarlet Pimpernel says:

    How desperately sad an existence when one pimps what should be precious and meaningful for a fleeting smattering of fame and fortune. No one will want what she’s selling in a few years time – she’s Paris Hilton’s protégé and similarly she’ll no doubt be struggling for air time and attention very shortly.

  206. Dudette says:

    What a sorry, sorry state of affairs. These people, particularly Mama Kardashian and Kim, think we’re all fools and are constantly trying to pull the wool over our eyes in order to make money. The sad thing is, it’s actually working. The Humphries must be absolutely mortified that they were dragged into this circus.

  207. Melissa says:

    First, Marriage is a serious vow and it should not be used just to have a party…that’s what Kim wanted.

    Secondly, no matter who supplied the money for this “party”…just think how much good that same money could have been used for…feeding hungry children, medicine, hospital care, providing homes, education, …the list never ends.

  208. lisa says:

    @sam

    I love me some google… lol

    Bad news for Kim Kardashian. Her ex-husband Damon Thomas has given an interview to In Touch magazine saying she a fame-loving, lying, plastic surgery-loving cheat.

    This comes weeks after their divorce papers leaked, in which Kardashian says Thomas hit her and was verbally abusive.

    Thomas says she also leaked X-rated photos of sister Kourtney and gossips about other sister Khloe’s marriage to LA Laker Lamar Odom.

    The press release:
    “She can’t write or sing or dance, so she does harmful things in order to validate herself in the media,” Kim’s ex-husband, Damon Thomas tells In Touch exclusively. “That’s a fame-whore to me. It’s just not cool at all.” “Kim is obsessed with fame,” Kim’s ex, music producer Damon Thomas, reveals, adding that even when he was in love with her, Kim struck him as the type of person who would step on anyone in order to get where she wanted — including her sisters, Khloé and Kourtney. “She’s jealous and competitive with her sisters,” he shares. Desperate to be famous, Damon says, Kim doesn’t seem to care whom she hurts — whether it’s friends, lovers or even her own family. “She can’t write or sing or dance, so she does harmful things in order to validate herself in the media,” he says. “That’s a fame-whore to me. It’s just not cool at all.” And while a rep for the Kardashian sisters says they’re “best friends and very supportive of one another,” Damon disagrees. “Jealousy is a big thing” with Kim, he says, revealing that when he knew her, Kim would “do whatever it takes” in order to get ahead.

    My favourite thing to come out of this whole sham is #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage on twitter it gives me hope in humanity

  210. Dorothy says:

    This wedding hoax or publicity stunt…whatever it was could very well be enough to make people wash their hands of them. It’s happened to other reality stars.

  211. Old School Woman says:

    Why after 72 days you ask? To get EXACTLY what she is getting NOW. Major news coverage. Her PIMP (KRIS K)set all this up. She is one greedy B-TCH! I also believe that KRIS H was on board from the beginning. Kim brought her own ring which she has worn before when she wanted Reggie to marry her. Once she had the media believing that, he had enough and dropped that PISS-D on B-TCH. PIMP mom tried other athletes, but their were no takers for this FARCE. Kris H (a virtual nobody) had nothing to lose. Gained a little fortune (especially with the NBA lockout)and now walks away with some recognition now. Reality show for him (maybe the new Bachelor). It is so sad to see the dumbing down of America. I hope the whole CLAN takes a plane ride and perishes. That will be the only show of theirs I would watch. Bet the mom already has a clause with “E” to document any and all deaths of this family. ANYTHING FOR MONEY WITH THESE FAMEWH-RES!

  212. prissa says:

    I believe the wedding was fake. First, when you write your own vows (okay, I’m sure they didn’t but play along with me here), I thought you were supposed to recite them to each other NOT have the pastor read the vows you wrote aloud.

    Also, they didn’t say the complete traditional vows (to have & to hold, through sickness & in health, till death do us part).

    It all seemed fake and contrived and the Kardashians should be ashamed. I hope Kris cuts his loss and keeps it moving. It’s just too bad that if it was real, he wasted his first marriage on this nightmarish famewhore.

  213. TXCinderella says:

    They were stating on the radio (KISS FM-Dallas) this morning that they think Kris was mean to Kim because he dared speak the truth about Kim’s “career”. I disagree, I think Kris has been spot on with everything he has told Kim. He may not have said things in the most loving, gentle way, but he is way more realistic than Kim is. The whole family are just a bunch of fame whores.

  214. Andrea says:

    This confirms my Katie Price theory, Katie even thinks Kim is a ripoff of her:Katie Price has launched a scathing attack on US reality TV thing Kim Kardashian, accusing her of completely copying her media-hungry talent-bereft existence.

    Kardashian has long been accused of following the Katie Price model of getting cameras to follow you everywhere so you can tell them how famous you are, but her collapsed celebrity marriage has been seen as going just a step too far.

    Price told reporters, “My marriage to Alex Reid lasted about six months, but her 72 day one to Kris Humphries is just taking the piss.”

    “First of all she copied me by having a sex tape with a pop star leaked to the media, then she had her own TV show which just follows her around doing things, and now this. All without displaying any discernible talent whatsoever. It’s too much.”

    “I have instructed my lawyers, and you will be able to follow the progress of the trial on my new Living TV show ‘Katie does some legal stuff and that’.”

  215. Angie says:

    I’m tired of hearing how Kim is a horrible person and hateful things from everybody. I have family members that have this type of behavior with their love life and it doesn’t make them a horrible person. Kim is the type that falls hard and for everybody. She fell in love with Kris but then fell in love even more with the idea of having a WEDDING.
    Just like I said in my earlier comment, READ my #92 comment.

    She’s one hell of a b*tch… As Kim always say in her show.. ‘this is so ridiculous’ … well, obviously Kim used him. After that $20 million worth wedding then the fairytale divorce after 72 days. $20 million would’ve been more than enough to feed the hungry people in Africa. $2 million, Kim’s engagement ring price tag, would’ve been more than enough to help the displaced flood victims in the Philippines and numbers of couples in america can have a decent marriage from this money. http://blog.brilliance.com/2011/kardashian-wedding-vs-average-wedding-price-infographic … and where’s the sanctity of marriage?

  221. flor says:

    Kim Kardashian is known for her SEXTAPE worldwide, who goes fr one BF to another, she likes to have a man in her life mostly ATHLETES, known to have a lot of plastic surgeries done, her BUTT is just not NORMAL.Who the hell in this world would like to MARRY HER?The woman is not FIT TO BE A WIFE, she would eventually CHEAT when she will feel bored not unless she will CHANGE FOR THE BETTER.She is lucky Kris Humpries proposed to marry her and wanted her to be a wife and a mother to his children but KIM KARDASHIAN is not READY FOR THAT in contrary to what she said she wants to have a family and have kids of her own?Kris Humpries is fr a decent family whose father is a successful business man, who owns a chain of five guys burger and fries in minnesota Kris is a part owner.Kris came fr a family with money and at age 26 kris knows where to invest his money, also to consider kris Humpries foundation.Kris Humpries is surrounded by well educated uncles atty Dirrect Humpries of washington dc and his aunt Paula Humpries who is a presiding judge 36th district detroit area, both sisters are athletes too.Kris father William Humpries has a good idea to put on business with kris to prepare his son in the future whenever he is not an athlete anymore though they may not as RICH AS THE KARDASHIAN but this family earns their wealth in a modest way!

    So, I guess Kim is not satisfied and not ready to be a WIFE AND A MOTHER.Two days before she filed for divorced kris she MET REGGIE BUSH, told KIM to divorced kris Humpries.Reggie Bush is not dating her current kim look alike GF anymore.And why would KIM KARDASHIAN do this, she is still married and why would REGGIE BUSH see kim in the first place!KIM AND REGGIE BUSH SHOULD MARRY and not KRIS HUMPRIES if they still love each other???

    But I guess REggie’s family won’t let him MARRY KIM not unless he likes KIM KARDASHIAN as his F…body she is KNOWN FOR THAT category!NO PARENTS WOULD BE PROUD TO HAVE A DAUGHTER IN LAW considering her background.

    She is lucky kris Humpries married her inspite of her dark side, you can just imagine what humiliation Kris felt when her sextape partner he met on the plane.She didnt even tried HARD to GET a counselling, just she said she NEEDS TO BE HAPPY so she have to let this relationship go.THEN WHY DID YOU MARRY KIM KARDASHIAN?YOU’RE a DISGRACE to the sanctity of marriage, why spent millions when a lot of people are suffering?You guys on the spotlight known to be humanitarian e.g angelina jolie so why not GIVE A DONATION then perhaps the world will like YOU INSTEAD OF HATING YOUR WHOLE FAMILY.You been married once and what did your first husband told about you, how he described you as a wife!It might be true he abused you, for what reason KIM?

    I am not PERFECT look back, what you want in life, do you want to be a W… fame seeker for the rest of your life?Kris is right when he told you once you get older no one will like you but your children is your future?WAKE UP KIM open your eyes, it is not too late yet.STOP CHASING MEN ESP ATHLETES they just want to f…you and make use of you, are you not scared of STD???

    kris I know you may have love her but you DESERVED BETTER and have a normal life.I know it HURTS.Time HEALS and WISH YOU LUCK!
