Kim Kardashian cries on KUWTK: She feels like a ‘loser’ with her third divorce

Tom Cruise and Hayley Attwell filming for Mission Impossible

I’m really looking forward to the end of Keeping Up with the Kardashians for one particular reason: when the show ends, hopefully people will stop saying “they’re just doing such-and-such for the show.” Like, there are full-blown conspiracies that Kim Kardashian’s Paris robbery was some kind of stunt for KUWTK. It was not. That happens time and time again. I’m not saying that the Kardashian-Jenners don’t pull stunts specifically for the show – they absolutely do. But they’re not, like, arranging robberies or getting divorces specifically for their dumb reality show.

I bring this up because people also acted like Kim was going to spend the last season of KUWTK bashing Kanye West or that the show would feature intimate scenes of their marriage falling apart. They haven’t shown any of that. The episodes airing right now were filmed in late 2020, as Kim and Kanye continued (as always) to live separate lives, and as Kanye was living full-time in Wyoming. In the penultimate episode of the final season, Kim and her sisters finally introduce the idea that Kim’s marriage is in the crapper:

So the big reveal was footage of Kim crying with her sisters after she and Kanye had a fight, and this is what was said:

“I honestly can’t do this anymore,” Kim said through tears. “Why am I still in this like, place where I’m stuck for years? Like, he goes and moves to a different state, every year, I have to be together so I can raise the kids, you know? And he’s an amazing dad, he’s done an amazing job … I think he deserves someone that can go support his every move, go follow him all over the place and move to Wyoming — I can’t do that. He should have a wife that supports his every move and travels with him and does everything.”

“I feel like a f—— failure, that it’s like, a third f—— marriage,” Kim added. “Yeah I feel like a f—— loser. But I can’t even think about that like, I want to be happy.”

“Kim is one of the most incredible human beings, literally ever, and she tries to protect their union at all costs, but it’s hard when you carry that responsibility on your shoulders and I just want her to take care of herself too,” Khloé said in her confessional before the episode turned back to her conversation with Kim in Tahoe.

“You can always talk to me about whatever,” she told Kim.

“There’s honestly nothing to talk about,” Kim said. “I mean, I won’t live with the fighting and stuff, like, if it was constant.”

[From People]

All of those claims that Kim would exploit Kanye’s poor mental health and that the final season of KUWTK would feature Kim bashing Kanye endlessly and then this is all they show. Kim calling herself a f–king loser because she’s about to go through her third divorce, and Kim crying about how Kanye deserves to be with someone who can support him and his life. Of course this was somewhat “faked” for the cameras, but once again, it’s fine. This wasn’t some “Kanye’s the worst, I hate him and here’s why.”

    I doubt she feels like a loser. Just trying to garner sympathy.

    • Seraphina says:

      And will make her look great in divorce talks – all caught on tape.

    • LightPurple says:

      I want to know how to cry without smudging false eyelashes, liner, and shadow and leave no trace on the white tissue in my hand.

      • waitwhat says:

        Lightpurple…It takes prep – all waterproof makeup! What I can’t get past is the vocal fry – my gosh that’s grating – and how weird Kim’s face looks in that still shot. Someone pumped with fillers and botox, crying, looks so weird! No wrinkles, no natural face movement. I’m glad I never got hooked on this show. I think I’d be traumatized by it! haha!

      • lolalola3 says:

        How about how to cry without any wrinkles! My god, her face is so shot up with Botox I”m surprised she can blink. There is nothing about this family that is not vulgar.

      • Soupie says:

        @waitwhat
        that’s what I noticed before anything else. she was much much prettier way back in the day. Even a few faces ago. She just looks so whack in that photo.

    • josephine says:

      I don’t think she’s a loser for getting divorced three times. It happens, although I don’t think she ever married for love. But I will call her out for the disgusting way she and her family have made their money. I think they are vile and exploitive and damage other women. It’s gross, but I doubt that they will ever think about anything deeply enough to care.

      • Ange says:

        I think she’s a loser in that she did the second one purely for attention and money, she didn’t even like the guy. She wouldn’t have 3 marriages to be embarrassed by if she’d waited until she actually wanted the groom.

    • Darkmatter says:

      Third divorce. Fifth face. It’s all relative.

    • Sal says:

      botox cryin….satisfyin???

  2. Noki says:

    The K Klan will never do to Kanye what they did to Humphries and Lamar. They know he can go nuclear on them. He is possibly one of the few people who can take them down,just one call to Anna Wintour and they will never see the Met gala again.

    • mellie says:

      For sure! They like being part of the ‘it’ crowd and he could take a lot of that away, whether or not they want to admit it.

    • Truthiness says:

      Remember last summer when Kanye called Kris Jenner the nickname of Kris Jong Un? Lmao. I think they kept their money separate and both sides have damaging secrets that need to be kept in the vault, but Kim could lose more. She is all facade, in a girdle and an inch of makeup. Kanye is not hurt by ending a bad marriage.

    • Anne Call says:

      You really think Kanye has any clout anymore? His ranting and raving and embrace of trump has struck him off of most A lists. Kim K probably has more stroke than he has these days.

  3. minx says:

    That header pic is perfection.

    • kelleybelle says:

      All it does it highlight, glaringly, the extent of the fillers and botox. It’s extreme. She doesn’t even look human.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        seriously. I thought *I* had an ugly-cry.

        hers looks like…I don’t even know what…alien? cartoon? def NOT human.

      • The Hench says:

        Yes that was my reaction – she would cry if she could…but way too much plastic has put paid to that. Eek.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      She looks swollen from fillers. Not crying.

      Thought one of her marriages was annulled?

      And sure, this is fine. Kanye needs new friends and support circle. He needs good help for his BPD. It is what it is and it’s very sad.

    • Bryn says:

      It looks painful for her cry. My gosh

    • Jules says:

      omg her face

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      Doesn’t even look like her. More like Sophia Loren now. Or someone I can’t put a finger on lol

    • Robin says:

      I’ve just watched the video and clocked that the only way these women can show emotion is via their eye movements, without any other facial expression working at the same time. It is such a limiting experience for them to show what they are feeling.

    • Green Desert says:

      My first thought too Minx. My god, what she has done to her face.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      It’s disturbing. Her face can’t express emotion through any place but her eyelids and mouth. Everything else is frozen in place. It’s like her face is fighting with itself. She’s crossed into the Uncanny Valley.

    • Amando says:

      I think Khloe looks worse. Mainly because the pictures she posts of her self look NOTHING like what she actually looks like. At least Kim’s over-botoxed face looks the same in pictures.

  4. Seraphina says:

    These people have no idea what reality is anymore. They live in limbo between TV reality and what we know as “reality”. I really hope she feels this way for Kanye but seriously doubt it. At some point, if you really do feel that low, you have to look at what the common denominator is and try some introspection.

    • Bettyrose says:

      And they’ll continue to be a constant source of media coverage after the show ends so there’s really no point at which they’ll be smacked with reality.

    • waitwhat says:

      Agreed Seraphina, it would all make a most excellent Twilight Zone!

  5. ClaireB says:

    She supposed to be crying and she can’t even move her face.

  6. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Khloe’s face in that video, good gravy but that’s a loooooot of work.

    • Stacy Dresden says:

      Honestly. I have never seen KUWTK but just watched that clip. Khloe’s face looks different in every shot and every angle. So weird.

    • Mac says:

      And her make up looks terrible. Aren’t the Ks supposed to make up experts?

    • whatWHAT? says:

      her nose is terrible. it’s too small and too short for her face.

  7. Escondista says:

    I can’t say that I pity Kim but I can also promise you that I wouldn’t trade my middle class boring life for hers. Ever.

    • Robin says:

      This is how I feel about the royal family when people say what a life of luxury they have. Unless I was in real financial hardship, there is no way I would envy any of them. I’d rather wear the same clothes more than once a month and have my anonymity thanks.

  8. Nomegusta says:

    BPD combined with wealth and a whole lot of ‘yes’ people is one hell of a combination. I do hope he finds his footing for his children’s sake.

    I never really got that she was deeply in love with Kanye, but that he was a huge stepping stone for her and he gave her a credibility that she could not have garnered without him. I also never got that he was deeply in love with her either, he just had a weird and we’ll documented infatuation…

    I don’t think this was a match made to last forever, but I did think the marriage would last longer…like another decade of separate lives.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      I thought she was In Love with him. 💯. Like, as much as she could be given the narcissism in both of them. And to stick out a marriage with someone having that break down over those years. There has to be love or walking away and one child fewer would have been the case.

  9. lucy2 says:

    I’m trying to figure out how one says “he goes and moves to a different state every year, leaving me to raise the kids” and “he’s a great dad” in the same sentence.

    • Bibliomommy96 says:

      He can be a great dad when he’s not around, lots of parents travel for work, or work long hours. I don’t see my kids some weeks because of work, so I can’t be a good mom?

      • Escondista says:

        Working to provide for a family is very different than “leaving me to raise the kids”.

      • Molly says:

        There’s your “work”, which I assume is what most people define as “work I do to provide for my family”, and there’s Kanye’s “work” where it compels him to F off to Wyoming to become Jesus and start his own cult so people in the matching clothes he made surround him in a circle and feed his bottomless pit of narcissisms every week.

      • lucy2 says:

        Do you really think that’s what I’m saying?
        Of course lots of parents travel for work, but he just up and ditched them for months, for no actual reason other than he wanted to. From what I remember, they had to travel, DURING A PANDEMIC, to go see him.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Kanye isn’t traveling for work, though. He can set up a studio anywhere.

    • court says:

      Our bar for dads is slow we need a shovel. He may be lovely with the kids when he’s around them & genuinely care about them but he’s not doing any real parenting and never will.

  10. Bettyrose says:

    She may not be divorcing for the show but she did marry twice to have lavish weddings on the show and getting married for superficial reasons leads to divorce.

  11. Veronica Rhodes says:

    I can’t believe you drank the koolaid! Not a single tear fell. Of course she’s not bashing Kayne she does not want to set him off on a rant.

  12. GrnieWnie says:

    He deserves a wife who can follow him around?

    Yeah, no. EACH PARTNER DESERVES A PARTNER WHO MAKES THEM A PRIORITY AND SUPPORTS THEM IN THEIR WORK. It isn’t a one way street and maybe that’s why these people’s relationships never seem to work out. They’re applying some outdated gender norm to the contemporary world where the pressures these women face are just as demanding as those faced by men, if not more.

    • molly says:

      Also, all that changes once you have kids. You don’t get to expect your wife and kids to “follow you around” once you bring them into this world. They didn’t ask to be born, and they deserve stability.

    • CoKatie says:

      Wow, G. That was perfectly and beautifully written. I personally needed to see those words. Thank you.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yeah, the word Kim is looking for is groupie. Not a wife or life partner.

  13. ooshpick says:

    I did not read this as anything on the k’s is a pass. I just wanted to say it is tragic that one of the most real expressions of being human, crying, is not possible for her face. I mean I get that something is coming out but that photo is not a crying face photo.

  14. Sue says:

    “Like, literally, whatever.”
    Honestly though, I’ve always appreciated Kim’s ugly crying. She’s good at the ugly cry for the camera. Even if tears aren’t coming out. In her defense, her face is so worked on I don’t know that her tear ducts actually work anymore.

  15. MipMip says:

    Genie wine- that’s all I could think while watching that clip- this is some Trudie Campbell s***.

    Which is why I will always find the Kardashians SO gross. They perpetuate these impossible female gender norms that are a combination of retro 1950’s and 21st century with their internalized misogyny, fillers, filters and endless hawking of harmful products on social media. Enough.

    • bettyrose says:

      I don’t see the post you’re replying to, but *high five* at the Trudie Campbell reference. I still cringe at her taking that idiot back.

  16. Midge says:

    Then maybe she should stop marrying people for the wrong reasons.

  17. Hello Kitty says:

    Whatever Kim. We all know you just wanted to sperm donor with clout

  18. Robin says:

    I don’t watch this show, but when Kim is in the bedroom crying, is the one standing up Kendall Jenner? She looks like she’s walked into the wrong hotel room and found these strangers having an emotional moment. She doesn’t look like she has any connection to them or even knows them at all. Perhaps it’s been a few weeks since she saw them last and they’ve had more work done!

  19. KatianaD says:

    It’s actually great she divorced KW. That’s not a loser move it’s a win. She could have been his caregiver with all his issues but she’s not obligated and he’s got his own resources. What she needs to do now is own up to why she’s known at all, address profiting from rape culture And stop making profits from her made in China plastic clothes. If she cares about human rights make the stuff in USA or even Mexico where she can check it

  20. KNy says:

    She says the marriage has been in trouble for years, but doesn’t she have a 3 year old and a 2 year old? She brought two babies into a troubled married when she already had two kids. Fucking selfish. They are accessories to her and nothing more.

    • atorontogal says:

      This! My thoughts exactly. And now we know why they were delivered by surrogate. My guess is they haven’t been “together” in years.

    • molly says:

      That fact that they were born via gestational carrier adds an interesting wrinkle to Kanye’s true level of involvement and emotional investment. I’m not at all suggesting he wasn’t involved or totally consenting in their conception, nor am I suggesting that parents via GC are in any way less “parents” than those who conceive and carry the baby themselves, but it does allow Kanye to be as removed from the process as he wanted to be. It allows Kim to get what she needs from him, either in the present or the past, and go forth largely on her own. Kim could have brought two babies into a troubled marriage very much on her own.

    • psl says:

      THIS. She kept having kids with him.

  21. psl says:

    Here komes the “Kim is a martyr” tour……

  22. Mel says:

    The crying face… OMG!!!!

  23. ME says:

    Kim’s cry face in that scene was the exact same cry face she used during that fake/scripted scene in Bora Bora where she pretended to lose her diamond earring in the ocean which Kylie just happened to find a few minutes later lol. This family is full of sh*t. Do not buy into any of their fakery. Kim won’t say sh*t about Kanye in front of the cameras because she’s scared he knows too much about their family secrets and will have a good old twitter rant about it. Also, Kim has her very own mouthpiece named Jonathan Cheban (aka Food God) to do all the dirty talking for her.

  24. Mel says:

    She can never say anything about him, he will bury her. A-listers allowed her into their midst because of him and if she puts a foot wrong… what Kanye giveth , Kanye can taketh away….

  25. Tursitops says:

    Never watched this show, don’t follow these people and am confident that my life is better for it. I would note that in the photo that purports to show her crying, no tears are visible. Very telling.

    I’m not going to call her a loser, but if you’ve rolled through three marriages at her age, it may be a propitious moment to reconsider one’s life choices to date.

  26. Amelie says:

    I don’t have much sympathy or really care about any of the Kardashians but ever since Kim got with Kanye, she went from bubbly and smiley and looking somewhat normal to very controlled, very emotionless facial expressions. I realize some of that is probably the work done to her face but I also being with Kanye took a huge emotional toll and she hid it with all the Victoria Beckham pouts and stony faces. Kanye is known for rarely smiling too so I feel like she copied that vibe and it just made her look like a robot for years. I hope she finds some joy and a reason to smile again.

  27. Renee says:

    If Kim truly felt like she was a loser, it would be the one time where she and I agreed. Alas, she doesn’t….it is all a sympathy ploy.

  28. Kaykay says:

    I truly believe her when says she feels like a f**n loser going through her third divorce, and I’m sad we live in a society where it’s considered taboo to get a divorce even just one time. I’m sure she’s uncomfortable with what the rest of the world might think of her and their relationship, as they [The K klan] are all very sensitive to criticism and constantly need validation.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I don’t think it is taboo in our society to get a divorce. 50% of all marriages in the US end in divorce. It used to be a much bigger deal decades ago, but it’s been common for a long time.

      • EllenOlenska says:

        It’s not taboo but it does stigmatize women. Try this: offer the same woman’s profile to a man. Mark one as widowed and one as divorced. See the differing reactions. You can get divorced because your husband was on national television screwing small farm animals and it will still be held against you. As if you are the damaged goods.

  29. Robin says:

    I’ve said it before, but if my kids had surgery to the point they looked nothing like they had growing up I’d be devastated. Can you imagine looking at photos of your children as infants and teenagers….and then they get to a point where the familiarity drops off a cliff. I wonder if they ever miss themselves?

  30. why? says:

    If Trump had gotten a second term, Kim would still be married to Kayne and setting up staged photo-ops at the White House and with Trump and Jared under the pretense of prison reform. She and her family knew that Kanye was unstable and they didn’t care because they were concerned about how much they could get by exploiting his sickness.

    Kim and her family have been leaking negative stories about Kanye. When Trump lost, they increased leaking stories about how they were embarrassed by Kanye’s support of Trump.

  31. Peaches says:

    I’ll never understand the praise she gets for doing the bare minimum.

  32. Robin says:

    I’ve said it before, but if my kids had surgery to the point they looked nothing like they had growing up I’d be devastated. Can you imagine looking at photos of your children as infants and teenagers….and then they get to a point where the familiarity drops off a cliff.

  33. Mette says:

    Kim and Khloe both are so tweaked and stretched their faces look like cats. Anyone see it? Also, kim comes across as such a btch in that video.

  34. JustMe says:

    I notice we never see Kylie around Tristan….cant say id blame her lose your bff over a community dick

  35. The Recluse says:

    It’s a ‘reality’ show. There is some reality, but there is also some scripting and the rest is playing up in front of the cameras. I feel for the kids in all this chaos, but Kim should just cut her losses and move on.

  36. Bread and Circuses says:

    Hmm, all spin. “I support him too much to hold him back! I’m just too selfless!”

  37. MangoAngelesque says:

    I wonder if they even recognize each other without makeup on…

  38. Shanaynay says:

    Wow! She is such an ugly crier!!! That face is going to give me nightmares.

    No, she’s not a loser for getting a third divorce. Nah, she’s a loser for many other reasons!!

  39. Amando says:

    She’s divorcing him because he deserves a wife that will follow him around? But not because he’s got severe NPD, is a Trump supporter, and has untreated mental health issues? Sure, Jan. I get that she’s trying to make herself look good, but at least come up with a better reason. One that is not from the year 1950. She enabled him while they were married and it looks like she’s going to continue to do it after they are divorced.

    I don’t think she’s a loser for divorcing for a 3rd time, but she does need some time to be single and reflect because it is a problem to be divorced 3 times by the age of 40.

    Kourtney is spot on about Scott. It’s ACTIONS, not words – especially with an addict.

    • Mcmmom says:

      Yeah, whatever. She’s not divorcing him because he “deserves” better – that is the celebrity version of “it’s not you, it’s me.” Nope, it’s you. It’s most definitely you.

  40. Freddy says:

    Kaiser, her second marriage was indeed a 72 day stunt for ratings, so I don’t doubt that she would get divorced for ratings. However, to the question does being divorced 3 times at 40 make her a loser? No. Being a vapid wart on the butt of humanity makes her a loser.

  41. Jess says:

    I get that everyone is over Kim, but the lack of any empathy in the comments?! Yikes, like I’m not a Kim Stan but I do know people who have and are going through a divorce with kids. It’s heartbreaking what she feels is common. Why empathize with the circus right? Smh
