Today, Kris, 26, finally responded to Kim’s divorce filing by seeking an annulment from her. Kris wants to erase his quickie marriage on the grounds that Kim defrauded him into marrying her.
Sources close to Kris tell TMZ that Kris was not in on the alleged fraud, a.k.a. he did not stage the marriage for Kim’s reality show. The insiders reveal while Kris wanted and thought he had a genuine marriage, Kim was never really on board.
TMZ adds that this divorce is quickly getting nasty because Kris also wants Kim to pay his attorney’s fees.
Kim is, however, not wasting any time firing back at Kris, with Kim herself “sources” close to her insisting to TMZ that she really loved Kris and the marriage was legit, despite falling apart in just 72 days.
Kim is telling others she originally wanted an annulment and filed for divorce after being told it was her only legal option. Kim is also claiming Kris and her discussed annulling the marriage before she filed for divorce, but were advised there was no legitimate grounds for an annulment.
TMZ states that under California law, annulments are only granted with proof of impotency, incest, bigamy, unsound mind, force or fraud. Kris’s papers state that in the case he’s denied an annulment, he wants a legal separation – and not a divorce. However, some legal experts are stating it will be very difficult for Kris to prove fraud in court.
I have to wonder if Kris’ annulment filing had anything to do with the premiere of Kourtney and Kim Take New York. In a review I wrote before the show aired, I stated that Kris seemed to truly love his wife, appearing like lovesick puppy, while Kimmie seemed pretty much over the marriage. She was quick to get angry with him and seemed more concerned with creating good TV drama by agreeing to move in with her sister Kourtneyand her family.
Meanwhile, sources close to Kris tell the HollywoodLife blog that a reconciliation with Kim is completely out of the question. “Kris is no longer heartbroken and he’s ready to move on,” reveals the source. “His main focus is basketball and he has been hustling for contract opportunities.”
Kris is now reportedly “trying to show teams he’s no longer associated with the Kardashians, so they aren’t influenced negatively by his outside issues.”
So folks, it appears immediately following this season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, we will get season two of Khloe and Lamar, and then the 125th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians which is currently filming at the moment. Le sigh. These people are never going away are they? The behind-the-scenes photo is below.
Let’s go ahead and add another minute to the Kardashians’ original fifteen as Kourtney Kardashian is now pregnant with baby No. 2!
Kourtney confirmed the news to UsWeekly that she is indeed expecting a second child with baby daddy Scott Disick. But that’s not the shocker folks! What is it you ask? Well, Kourt is announcing the news to the world while just 9 weeks along!
“Now I’m nine weeks along,” Kourtney tells UsWeekly. “You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.” Well feeling confident and also announcing the news to deflect from her little sister, Kimmie Kardashian’s divorce backlash! Those crafty Kardashians! Always so transparent.
Kourtney, 32, reveals she took the pregnancy test about five weeks ago and woke up Scott, 28 (apparently is not a morning person), around 7.a.m. to tell him the good news.
So was baby #2 planned for the unwed couple? Or was the news a surprise? “It wasn’t like we weren’t trying,” says Scott. “We kind of just said, ‘If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.’” Kourtney and Scott’s son Mason turns 2 in December.
This pregnancy news is even more surprising as the couple can be seen on the second of Kourtney and Kim Takes New Yorksupposedly having major problems in their relationship. The series, which was just taped in September and October, depicts the two sleeping in separate bedrooms and being at each other’s throats.
A source, however, tells the HollywoodLife blog the obvious — which is that their storyline is all scripted for the show. “It’s funny because Scott and Kourtney’s relationship is actually pretty strong,” a source close to the couple reveals. “As the new season continues, they will have their moments ‘for the cameras,’ but it’s a lot of smoke and mirrors.” Oh you don’t say! Makes you wonder how much of the upcomingKris Humphries is a total jerk storyline was also scripted for the cameras.
In the meantime, we can all await the new E! special Kourtney’s Fairytale Wedding Delivery any minute now! You know it’s coming!
According to a press release by E!, the Sunday night premiere brought in a staggering 3.2 million total viewers, a 6% increase from the 3 million viewers who saw the first season premiere back in January 2011.
RadarOnline reports Kris watched in “utter horror, because it’s just not a true depiction about what was actually going on between Kim and Kris.” An insider close to the situation adds: “Kris did jokingly say that Kim ate too much wedding cake, but what viewers didn’t see was Kim nagging Kris about working.”
When it comes to Kris’ decision to leave Kim in NY at the end of the episode to go back to train in Minnesota, the insider states it wasn’t all Kris’ idea. “There was nothing he could do about the NBA lockout, he was working out, and getting ready for the upcoming season, and he is a free agent. It was actually Kim’s idea that Kris go back to Minnesota to train and give them some distance.”
The source also points out the obvious to Radar Online, which is that producers of the show set up situations with intentions to push Kris’ buttons. “Kris wasn’t getting any sleep at all with Mason’s playroom literally set up outside their bedroom door. It made no sense for Mason’s play area to be on the second floor of the suite Kim, Kris, Scott and Kourtney were staying in. Scott and Kourtney were staying downstairs, and Scott felt that the producers of the show were just trying to provoke him into reactions.”
Kris will reportedly be ‘relieved” once the show is over and his divorce is finalized.
In other news, the Kardashians grace the latest cover of Glamour magazine (more photos from their shoot below) and in a sneak peak of their interview — completed after Kim filed for divorce — Kim gives us her sob story of no longer believing in a fairytale.
“I think I’ll always be a hopeless romantic,” first states Kim before going on to add: “It means that I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.”
Kimmie Kakes doesn’t end there going on to state that she now believes she needs to be a bit “more realistic” about “the fact that what I want isn’t possible.”
Kim expands in the interview with her sisters: “I don’t know. I always wanted what Mom and Dad had. And at first I was like, I want six kids. Then I went down to four, then I was down to three… and now I’m like, maybe I won’t have any. Maybe I’ll just be a good aunt.”
Khloe Kardashian, apparently still has functioning brain cells, and promptly reminds her big sis that “what Mom and Dad had” ended in divorce. Khloe states: “ But Mom and Dad got a divorce, and she met Bruce. And you were a child; you don’t know what Mom and Dad had. As an outsider looking in, it probably looked like paradise.”
Aww poor Kimmie Kakes. How long until she’s in her next fairytale relationship? Plus are we really suppose to believe she only married for love and not for, you know, $17 million and attention???
And when it comes to the high ratings of Sunday’s premiere, I can’t say I’m surprised as I predicted as much. Quite frankly everyone loves a train-wreck and nothing screams train-wreck like watching a marriage that only lasted 72 days fall apart on TV! However, I still strongly believe that the Kardashians are done. They’ll never be able to top this train-wreck and the public is still sick of them. The family is currently filming the next season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and I strongly believe those ratings will take a hit.

Following the very harsh backlash from the public overKim Kardashian’s quickie marriage and divorce, it appears the only shot the Kardashians have at redeeming their image is to make Kim’s husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, into the ultimate villain… And that folks is exactly what they are doing!
Kimmie, 31, graces the latest cover of UsWeekly magazine which paints her as the ultimate victim, even going as far as to call her husband of 72 days the “husband from hell.”
What exactly makes Kris the husband from hell? Well, according to a source close to Kimmie and the geniuses at UsWeekly, Kris would jokingly tell his wife she has a “fat ass” which apparently translates into calling her fat! Even more horrific, Kris would verbally abuse his wife by saying truly very terrible things to her such as the truth “she had no talent and her fame wouldn’t last.”
“He tried to control Kim by bringing her down,” a source tells Us magazine. “He belittled her in front of people… He’d call her stupid. It was truly sickening.” Sure he did!
“Kris was so different,” after the wedding, insists a friend of Kim’s. Adding that when Kim first met Kris, “he was fun and low-key and Kim thought, that is it.”
Kris, however, changed after the honeymoon, claims the sources close to Kim, stating whenever Kim wanted to spend time with him in front of cameras, “he would tell her she was acting like too much of a wife and ‘get over it.”
The sources go on to claim Kris, who has been unable to work due to the NBA lockout, would spend almost every night out partying while Kim was at home or working. “He started to love the life, going out every night partying,” claims Kim’s friend. “He and his friends had never experienced anything like that and started to demand free tables, free bottles (at clubs). It was embarrassing to her. She goes to bed at 9 p.m.”
When Kris partied sources claim he “was definitely not on good behavior.” The Kardashian insider adds, “When he drinks with his friends, he gets wild.” And when he went to Miami without Kim in October, a source from the club states:“The girls were bragging about dancing up on Kim’s man.”
As for poor long-suffering wife of 72 days Kim, who was not at all consumed with greed and fame by her decision to marry a man she barely knew, she is now described as being “heartbroken and living in misery”, all very evident by the kissy face photo she posted to her fans just a week ago!
“She’s trying to figure her life out,” adds the Kardashian insider. “Kim wanted the relationship to work so bad,” says another pal.
…But don’t feel bad for Kimmie just yet, while she might be “heartbroken and living in misery,” she still managed to attend the DWTS finale last week to support her brother Rob Kardashian!
Even better, the heartbroken one also managed to orchestrate a PR photo op to rehab her image when for the first time in her career, she decided to volunteer at the Los Angeles Shelter to help feed the homeless on Nov. 23. The good news is in reading the comments from other major blogs such as TMZ and UsWeekly, I would say over 95% of those comments are negative with pretty much everyone seeing this as nothing but a transparent attempt to redeem her image! Smart folks I tell ya!
More pictures of Kim volunteering below.
Finally, the new season of Kourtney and Kim Take New Yorkaired last night on E! and while the few remaining fans of Kimmie were excited to see the show, no one was more excited than Kim Kardashian herself! Fameho Kimmie spent most of yesterday promoting the show on Twitter! Which many, I included, found very odd that any normal human being would be so gung ho and excited about a show that is focused on her marriage falling apart.
Below are some of Kimmie’s Tweets -
Very odd and disturbing… This tweet by Twitter user @activistdocgrrl kind of sums it up best: “@KimKardashian make me understand, your marriage is falling apart on TV and you are excited about people trending #KKtNY and #baby Mason?”

TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE KRIS WAS A HUSBAND FROM HELL OR IS THIS AN ATTEMPT BY THE KARDASHIANS TO MAKE KIM A VICTIM? ARE YOU BUYING KIM’S VOLUNTEERING? THOUGHTS ON KIMMIE’S TWEETS ABOUT THE SHOW AND LAST NIGHT’S PREMIERE?

While many, and we mean many, fans have voiced their displeasure against the greedy fame whoring family it’s still likely many will tune in to E! Sunday night to see what actually went on in Kim’s and Kris Humphriesmarriage of 72 days.
Well, Reality Tea was able to get a screening of the 1-hour premiere and I must say I was quite shocked at the episode. Let’s just say pimpmomagerKris Jenner is not going to be happy with the premiere! For starters, Kris got a very fair edit (not sure how long this is going to last) on the season premiere that by the end of the episode he actually came off as the victim and Kim the villain.
Living Conditions – The premiere began with Kris and Kim just returning from their “amazing” honeymoon and the newlyweds, for some unknown reason, have decided to move in with Kim’s sisterKourtney Kardashian, and her boyfriendScott Disick, along with their 1 year-old son Mason. Because apparently, the dream of every newlywed couple, millionaires at that, is to move in with another family.
Set Ups – It’s pretty clear from the beginning that Kim wasn’t as concerned with making her marriage work and giving it a real shot as she was concerned with creating good reality TV drama. How else can we explain her decision to do a reality show immediately after her wedding? Or her decision to agree to this living condition instead of getting to know her husband in private? Or better yet, her decision to agree to having Mason‘s playroom right next to her bedroom with Kris, much to Kris’ dismay… rightfully so I might add.
Is Kris A Jerk? - As stated above, the editing on the premiere episode was definitely more than fair to Kris though it was still unfair he had to deal with certain set ups to begin with. The biggest set up being Kourtney’s decision to invite a male yoga instructor to teach her, Kim, and some of their friends some naked yoga. Poor Kris is shown walking into his home, or hotel suite he shares with his wife and wife’s family rather, only to see a naked man teaching his wife yoga. Kris did not react too positively. He came off as a rather immature 26-year-old in my opinion, though not a jerk. It appears Kim, age 31, missed the memo that most women mature faster than men.
Real Love? – If anything, the premiere seemed to prove the couple’s love was real… well at least on Kris’ end. In many scenes, Kris was shown telling his wife Kim how “pretty” she was, how much he loved her and apologizing to her for not wanting to stay longer at a party that was being hosted for them. As for Kimmie, most of the scenes showed her with a short fuse when it came to Kris. She flew off the handle when he ruined her pedicure while he was roughhousing with her. She stated “this sh*t is not going to fly” over Kris’ messiness (he leaves his clothes everywhere). And she was very quick to snap at him over his immature behavior towards the naked male yoga instructor.
What is clear in watching the premiere is that the honeymoon between the two was definitely over, but it seems poor Kris forgot to get the memo. While Kris carried on like a lovesick puppy, it was pretty clear Kim was already over this union and having major doubts. Doubts that were likely there BEFORE her wedding, you know, the same one that netted her $17 million. Which leads to the question, why did she go through with the wedding to begin with? I’ll let you ponder that rhetorical question for a second.
It will also be interesting to see how E! edits Kris as the season goes along. After all, the network does have a lot riding on Kim and the whole Kardashian family being liked by the public.
Whether you like this family or not (believe me — I’m not a fan), I will say the premiere episode is a must see. Even I was excited to watch this to see what actually went on behind close doors. Plus, I’m curious to see how the general pubic will interpret the season premiere episode.
As for Kris, sources close to him are now telling TMZ he has no plans to sue Kim. A report came out days ago saying he was considering filing a $10 million lawsuit due to his worry over how he would be portrayed on the show plus because he has a larger role in it than originally promised.
Sources say Kris, who reportedly has a “cordial” relationship with Kim at the moment, is still worried that the show will make him look worse than he really is but also understands he has no control over it.
ETA - After finishing this write up, I came across a review by the NY Post and it appears the writer shares the same sentiment I did. Linda Stasi wrote:
“After watching a screener for Sunday night’s much-hyped “before-the-breakup” opening episode of “Kourtney & Kim take New York,” I feel as foolish as Kris Humphries must feel. In fact, the krooked Kardashian klan should have changed the title of the show to “Kourtney & Kim Take New York For a Ride.” For once — despite all the editing that went into making Kim the breakaway bride look like the slighted one — they will be exposed as the phony kreeps they are. And Humphries? He ends up looking like the dumbest schmo to ever appear on reality TV — and that’s saying a lot!
It becomes clear early on, that this poor fool thought he was really getting married. He didn’t realize he was just playing a character assigned to him by Kim. He wasn’t a husband, he was a prop!”
I predict very high ratings for the premiere of the show which will likely take a dip as the season goes along. And once Kourtney and Kim Takes New York ends, I believe this family will be done. One – they’ve done it all (sex tape, pregnancy, marriages, babies and divorce) and the public is just sick of them. Quite frankly, they simply cannot top the train wreck they have created for themselves.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE REVIEW? WILL YOU BE WATCHING THE PREMIERE OF KOURTNEY AND KIM TAKE NY? SURPRISED E! GAVE KRIS A FAIR EDIT?
CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE A NEW PREVIEW!
Fast forward to today and it doesn’t appear things will be looking up for Kimmie Kakes anytime soon. According to the upcoming issue of Life & Style magazine, out on news stands tomorrow, Kris Humphries aka Kim’s husband of 72 days, is now planning to sue her to the tune of $10 million!
“Kris has a legal team investigating his options,” an insider tells Life & Style. “He’s claiming his role on Kourtney & Kim Take New York is bigger than he was told, and that’s why he wants more money. But Kris is also suing because he’s really worried about how badly he’s going to be portrayed on the series.”
Acc0rding to Life & Style, Kris, 26, is mostly worried about some explosive footage of him “bullying” Kim’s best friend Jonathan Cheban. “Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality,” shares a pal of Kim. “Jonathan isn’t gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset.”
The source close to Kim claims the “bullying” made her very upset. “Kris used the word ‘gay’ as an insult, to try and hurt Jonathan,” an E! insider tells Life & Style. “He’s the lowest of the low bullying someone like this.”
Kris has now reportedly retained lawyer Lee Hutton III and is trying his hardest to prevent his worst moments from being aired on TV.
However, Kris’ family and friends are coming to his defense maintaining that most of Kris’ appearance on Kourtney & Kim was scripted, including scenes in which he questions Jonathan’s sexuality. They also remain adamant that Kris is not homophobic. “Little did Kris know that he was being set up,” his father, William Humphries, tells Life & Style. “Kris got used — 100 percent used.”
Meanwhile, Hills alum andDancing With The Stars contestant Kristin Cavallariis now taking some shots at the Kardashian family! Kristin graces the current issue of Life & Style magazine with a headline that reads: “Betrayed! Scott’s affair with Kristin.”
The article claims that while Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick were on a break two years ago (mind you this was even before Kourtney got pregnant) Scott and Kristin hooked up. The mag went on to claim Kourtney, reportedly friends with Kristin at the time, feels so betrayed and therefore banned Scott from stepping foot on the DWTS set this season due to Kristin being a contestant. And yes, that whole story sounds extremely ridiculous to us as well!
“Scott and Kristin hooked up in Las Vegas [in February 2009] during a time that he was on a break from Kourtney,” an insider told Life & Style. “Kourtney was furious. She and her sisters have called Kristin ‘the whore bag’ ever since.” Oh the nerve of any Kardashian calling anyone else a “whore bag!”
Well, Kristin not only denies the ridic report but also fires back at the Kardashians as she believes they leaked the story to the press in other to take some heat off Kimmie and the backlash she is receiving. Smart girl that Kristin!
“I just think, what convenient timing for them with their show [Kourtney & Kim Take New York] premiering next week. With everything that’s going on for Kim, I feel like they’re trying to take the heat off her,” Kristin said on The Billy Bush Show syndicated radio show.
Kristin continued, “When there’s a big story like that, they always call you and ask if you want to comment and clearly none of them denied it… It’s disrespectful to me and Jay [Cutler, Cavallari's ex-fiance who she just got back together with], and I think it just says a lot about their character.” Ouch!
Finally, even PETA is getting in on the Trash a Kardashian month as they recently launched a billboard campaign against Kimmie! Us Weekly reports that on the billboard, scheduled to go up in early December, a fur-clad Kimmie sits opposite a sad shot of baby foxes. “Kim: These Babies Miss Their Mother,” reads the sign. “Is She on Your Back?” A picture of the PETA billboard is below!
Meanwhile, Kim made another public appearance yesterday (what happened to staying out of the spotlight?) as she and her family were in the Dancing With The Stars audience to cheer for Rob. A picture of the Kardashian clan is below -
TELL US – DO YOU THINK KRIS WILL GO THROUGH WITH THE LAWSUIT? DO YOU BELIEVE KRIS IS REALLY A JERK OR JUST IMMATURE? THOUGHTS ON KRISTIN’S COMMENTS?
In today’s not so shocking Kardashian news, a new report states Kim Kardashian is making certain she will be edited to be a victim on her upcoming E! reality show, while her husband of 72 days Kris Humphries will be made to be a jerk!
According to a new report by RadarOnline, Kim, who isn’t an executive producer onKourtney and Kim Take New York, still has full editorial control over what appears on the show.
Kim will be seen “as the victim, and Kris will definitely be the bad guy. Kim was stunned by the amount of bad press and the public relations nightmare she has endured since deciding to file for divorce,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
The source adds that Kim is hoping to use the show to repair her now tarnished image: “Kim will be using the show to attempt to rehab her image. Kim has been telling her inner circle that she has worked very hard to get where she has, and she isn’t going to let her marriage and subsequent decision to divorce Kris Humphries ruin that.” Who knew a sex tape was hard work? A preview clip of Kim being a poor suffering wife of 72 days on the E! show is below!
“Kim carefully and methodically plans all of her business decisions, and that is how she is looking at her divorce, is all business. Of course she is sad, but it’s all about Kim’s endorsement deals and paid promotional appearances. There were reports that Kim was going to lay low after she filed for divorce, yet several days later she was in Atlanta shooting a role in the movie, The Marriage Counselor.”
In fact, the current issue of Star magazine confirms Kim’s current “misery” has more to do with her money and public backlash than love. “Kim is desperately trying to get her career and megadollar endorsements back in place,” says a source who adds that her pimpmomager Kris Jenner is guiding the plan. “She’s doing everything she can to turn this around.” And this includes Kim’s spontaneous trip to meet with Kris at his family’s home in Minnesota after the divorce filing.
A source tells the mag that trip was a “sham” and definitely not an attempted reconciliation. “The Kardashians wanted the meeting to make Kim look more human and compassionate, but it did neither,” says the source. “If anything, the visit convinced the Humphries that she’s nothing more than a gold digger that used their son for her personal gain.”
Star adds that Kris Jenner has now enlisted not one, but three PR specialists to do damage control because the entire family is suffering from the backlash. Ai ya ya.
A source also claims to Radar that poor victim Kimmie, who began watching the footage after filming wrapped in mid-October, was “mortified” and only decided to divorce Kris after seeing the awful way he treated her and her family on the new show. Riiight. “The marriage was already under a tremendous amount of stress, but she just couldn’t believe that she had married this man that was treating her and her family like this,” says a source. The new E! show which is set to premiere November 27, will reportedly portray Kris as a “lazy and insensitive” villain.
As for Kris, 26, he made his first promotional appearance Thursday at a NYC press conference announcing his endorsement deal with Sector watches (he is reportedly getting paid $150,000).
During the press conference, Kris spoke briefly on his divorce heartbreak. “I’m happy to be here. As you all know, this has been a difficult time in my life, and I’m so grateful [for] my friends at Sector for their unwavering support,” he said.
There have been reports and speculation that Kris might have signed a confidentiality agreement before marrying Kim which would prohibit him from speaking negatively about her in the case of a divorce. This would explain why Kris’s dad and friends have been publicly speaking out on his behalf. Kim is rumored to have signed one as well, though unfortunately for Kris, she never signed anything preventing her from making him look like a douche on her reality show!
While Kris isn’t opening up, those close to him continue to do his bidding. The latest issue of OK! magazine reports Kim actually gave up on the marriage less than two weeks after they were wed! Other reports have claimed she talked to a divorce lawyer days before her wedding. “He really thought she just gave up too quickly and didn’t even try,” an insider says. “It came out of nowhere — he really didn’t see the divorce coming. He’s angry and also very sad.”
“It’s been painful. Kris said that he never thought in a million years she would file for divorce without giving it a chance,” the insider says. “He wanted to try. He thought in a few weeks things would be smoothed over.”
Kim, however, had different ideas and even asked Kris not to accompany her on a previously planned promotional trip to Australia. “All of a sudden, he woke up to a divorce — and then no one would return his calls,” recalls Kris’ friend. In fact, sources close to Kim admit this is true but state Kim was advised by her handlers to cut off communication with Kris. Wowzers.
However, the mag adds that Kris is not ready to give up on Kim yet. “Kris is a little bit in denial about the whole thing,” says one pal. “Kris really did love her and he still does.”

Even worse for the famewhores Kardashian clan, the movement against them is gaining steam. “In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming,” petition organizer Cyndy Snider said in a statement to Yahoo News. “We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.”
The more popular petition via GoPetition.com now has over 80,000 signatures (it had 55,000 this morning) — a vast increase from the 15,000 it had yesterday. It is not just an organized effort to get the Kardashian/Jenner clan off television screens, but also to put an end to their empire which includes clothes, perfume and nail polish bottles.
“While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of ‘reality satire,’ it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behavior after them,” Cyndy continued. “I’ll remind you here that the Kardashian family fame largely started with a ‘leaked’ sex tape.” Preach sister!
Cyndy adds that whether the petition works or not, she will continue to circulate it on the World Wide Web. “There is no particular religious or political platform behind our disgust; we are just finally fed up,” she added.
Meanwhile, a new report by the NY Post is stating Kimmie is planning to take some time away from the public (haven’t we heard this before???). Apparently, Kimmie really, really wants the public to know she is still mourning the end of her marriage despite posting kissy face photos on her blog this week!
The Post reports Kim is “keeping an uncharacteristically low profile” and has told her team to cancel all promotional obligations until her New Year’s Eve gig in which she’ll host a party at TAO Las Vegas. Kim has also canceled a ShoeDazzle tour in the UK, two book tours and an appearance at Z100’s Dec. 9 Jingle Ball. Her sisters Khloe and Kourtney will be forced to promote the novel they penned with Kim, titled “Dollhouse” without her this week in NYC.
Unfortunately for Kim, I believe her career is done whether she takes time away from the public or not. Like I stated weeks ago, once the media starts to turn on you the end of your “career” is near. It happened to Paris Hilton, it happened to Heidiand Spencer, and now it’s happening to Kim Kardashian. The Kardashians (mostly Kim and pimpmomager Kris Jenner) definitely got too comfortable and definitely too arrogant with their fame. Must say they didn’t think this latest stunt all the way through. They overestimated how much the public really loved them, when in fact most of the public were simply only tolerating them. It appears the talentless family have now worn out their welcome.
You, however, have to love the irony that Kim (who made them famous with her sex tape) is the same one ending their reign of A-list fame with her quickie divorce.
