In today’s Kim Kardashian divorce saga update, Kimmie is working over time to redeem her public image following backlash for her divorce filing after an entire 72 days of marriage!
Just less than a week after she filed, TMZ is reporting Kim flew to Minnesota on Sunday morning to meet up with her “husband”Kris Humphries. The news of Kim flying to see Kris is all the more shocking as just a day earlier, Kim herself “sources” close to Kim were telling TMZ she planned to go into hiding for a number of weeks. Wonder if that whole SNL skit (posted, below) had anything to do with her sudden change of heart?
According to TMZ, Kim is now all of a sudden trying to see if her two month marriage can be saved. She and Kris reportedly met up with their pastor yesterday for four hours, after which sources revealed a reconciliation is “up in the air.”
Sources reveal the meeting with Pastor Joel Johnson went well as the couple talked through lots of issues. The two expressed respect and love for each other while acknowledging there is a lot wrong with their relationship.
As for Kris, he is said to be “ecstatic” that he’s being used Kim came to Minnesota to redeem her public image and is hoping he can still win her back! As for Kim, she is reportedly very uncertain about reconciling, but is willing to keep talking.
In fact, Kimmie made certain she was photographed outside of Kris’ home yesterday just so the public can see she is really, really trying to save this marriage, you know, the same one that brought her over $17 million in profits!
As of this morning, Kim has returned to Los Angeles. A photo of Kim outside of Kris’ home yesterday is below!
Meanwhile, despite receiving a ton of backlash for hiring Kim to be in his movie, Tyler Perry is choosing to keep her in the upcoming “Marriage Counselor” flick.
TMZ reports fans have been flocking to Tyler’s website and begging him to fire Kim from the movie. One post read: “… why are you even considering putting no talent, show everything Kim K in a movie. I will not support that movie …” Tyler is, however, refusing to take the good advice of his fans back down telling TMZ Kim “is scheduled to work as planned.”
In the genius skit, which aired on Saturday, the show mocked the entire family but mostly Kim’s quickie divorce in the form of a E! parody titled “Fairytale Divorce Special.”
In the skit, Kristen Wiig who played Kris Jenner said of the divorce: “I know a lot of people say Kim got married just to make over $17 million from the wedding but that’s not true — she also got married for attention.” Kim, played by Nasim Pedrad, however remained in good spirits in spite of her heartbreak. “Things are looking up for me: I’m single and there’s an NBA lockout!” she said.
The clip of the highlarious skit is below!

It’s the morning after the divorce filing heard around the world and America is still trying to pick up the pieces, you know, after realizing they have been bamboozled!
Just to bring you up to date, Kim Kardashian, 31, married NBA player Kris Humphries, 26, back in August after only 9 months of dating. Kimmie Kakes pocketed over $17 million from the wedding only to file for divorce a mere 72 days/10 weeks/2.5 months later!
Fast forward to today, and Kim, star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, is on the receiving end of some major criticism while most media outlets are simply trying to figure out what went wrong.
According to TMZ, who first broke the divorce news yesterday to both the public and Kris, reported those close to Kim are claiming she truly agonized over her decision to file for divorce and went back and forth this weekend. That agony is clearly evident in Kimmie’s last tweet from Monday morning, you know, the same one she used to promote her newest Kardashian store!
Sources close to Kim tell TMZ she didn’t make her final decision to file for divorce until Sunday night and that she cried all weekend as she kept going back and forth on whether or not to file. Perhaps if one is having this much doubt after only 10 weeks of marriage they should have held off on filing!? Something tells me Kimmie was already picturing the publicity and magazine covers!
As for why Kim decided to file on Monday, it was because hubby Kris wanted to hire a Hollywood publicist over the weekend. Kim reportedly told one of her friends, “He’s not in f**king Hollywood. He plays sports.” Oh the irony of a famewhore divorcing her husband over being an alleged famewhore!
Yes, those close to Kim are now claiming she went through with the divorce because she now suspects Kris was simply in it for the fame. TMZ reports Kim’s friends are scoffing at Kris’ claims that he simply wanted a simple life with Kim in Minnesota. They’re saying he’s full of BS because once the marriage fell apart he immediately started “chasing fame.”
Camp Kim claims that once the couple started talking about the possibility of divorce last week, Kris went into full Hollywood mode, and started talking about “branding” the Kris Humphries name with cologne, nightclub appearances and what not. Not quite seeing the big deal with that but let’s continue!
Camp Kim also claims Kris was pushing to keep their connection going whether they ended their marriage or not which apparently threw up red flags with Kim. They, however, claim the breaking point for Kim was Kris’ decision to hire a Hollywood publicist over the weekend to work on his image. Why would this be such a bother to her??? Sounds like Camp Kim is grasping at straws here!
The HollywoodLife also has their take on things stating Kim decided to end her marriage after Kris decided to quit filming for Kim’s E! reality show Kourtney and Kim Take New York.
“Kim and Kris got into a huge fight last week because Kris told Kim he was sick of the cameras following him around and that he had had enough,” said a Kardashian family insider. “Kris said the reality show was ruining their marriage and it obviously took its toll on their relationship. But for Kim, it was the last straw. Kris had promised her that he would be on the show and that he was OK with all the cameras. Now that he is pulling out, Kim is throwing in the towel. She has had enough as well. They were only married for 72 days. Basically, the marriage should never have happened. There was too much of an emphasis on the wedding TV special rather than on their actual relationship. I think Kim was more in love with the whole idea of the wedding than she was in love with Kris.”
The insider also claims Kris isn’t the nice guy he’s portraying himself to be adding that he would always threaten Kim with a divorce. “Kris has been getting nastier and nastier and has been threatening Kim,” the source claims. “He has basically given her an ultimatum, ‘Move to Minnesota with me or I will dump you!’ This is really immature behavior. I honestly don’t know why they got married in the first place. They are so different.” The source goes on to state the obvious adding that “Kris was in over his head and Kim was so desperate to get married.”
Following the backlash from the public yesterday, as we predicted, Kim’s sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian took to their twitter pages to defend their sister. Khloe tweeted, “Reading some these comments r so hurtful. Im grateful 4our fans who understand & r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything.” Kourtney also tweeted: “Our sister is going through a difficult time but we’re a close family and are sticking together like always.”
Kim and Kris both released statements yesterday and in Kris’ statement he makes it clear he still wants to work on his marriage to Kim, stating he is “committed to this marriage” and “willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
When it comes to the criticism, Kimmie remains the butt of jokes both by the media and the public. The twitter topic #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage has been the top trending topic on twitter for over 24 hours. And many in the media are now speculating on whether the marriage was ever even real, and well, just check out today’s cover of the NY Post below!
As for Kim, she has dipped out of the country and was photographed (below) at the LAX on Monday night boarding a flight to Australia with Khloe. The two are headed there to promote their new Kardashian handbag line.
A masseuse was also spotted outside of Kimmie’s LA mansion yesterday bringing a massage table into her home. That poor little rich Kimmie…

As reported back in August, Kim’s momager Kris Jennermade certain the couple got a prenup. Meanwhile, it appears the joke’s on us, the public, as reports have stated Kim raked in over $17 million from the very lavish wedding.
Immediately following the August 20 nuptials, the tabloids started reporting there was trouble in paradise. It all seemed like just rumors until recent weeks when more reputable media outlets such as UsWeekly and PEOPLE magazine also reported Kim, 31, and Kris, 26, were indeed having marital problems. And just days ago, a bombshell report came out stating Kimmie and E! were shopping around for other NBA players she could date before she met Kris, while Kris has been caught flirting with other women.
Kim hosted a Halloween party this weekend solo, though she played down reports of marital issues telling PEOPLE: “Something I really prepared Kris for [was] to let him know that no matter what we do, there’s going to be rumors… It used to really upset me and now I don’t even think about it.”
For the time being, it appears Kim is getting ready to go out of the country, visiting Australia for a promotional appearance. Good thing as the public backlash ain’t gonna be pretty. But really, what happened to trying to work things out? 72 days????? Wow.
