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!

Weeks after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wed NBA player Kris Humphries, the tabloids started reporting the couple was having marital issues. At first it all seemed like rumors, but fast forward to today and more reputable media outlets such as UsWeekly and PEOPLE are confirming the two are indeed having a hard time in newlywedville.
Perhaps in an effort to quiet down the rumors, Kim admitted the following to PEOPLE magazine about her marriage: “It’s not ideal because you’re newlyweds and you want privacy.” Privacy? Really Kimmie? Two words that should never be uttered in the same sentence? Kim Kardashian and privacy! After all this is the same person who invited the paparazzi on her honeymoon and sold the photos for a reported $200,000!
A source tells PEOPLE of the couple: “They’ve been a bit distant lately. But they’re figuring it all out.” Distant after 2 months? Yikes!
Kim’s pimp err mom Kris Jenneralso chimed in stating now that filming has ended on the upcoming Kourtney & Kim Take New York season 2, it’s back to L.A. for the newlyweds. “They’re going two separate directions [with work],” says pimpmomager Kris. “They’ll figure it out as soon as they get back.”
Kimmie also graces the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine which sheds some more light on exactly what problems the two are having. The cover reads, “As Kim worries she made the mistake of her life, can she save her marriage?”
The mag reports that two months after the couple’s televised $10 million nuptials, Kim and Kris have already reached a breaking point in their marriage. “Kim and Kris are not getting along at all,” says a source. “Kris is not drinking the Kardashian Kool-Aid, and it’s causing major problems.”
Kris’ biggest fault? His perceived laziness which is a cardinal sin in the relentlessly ambitious famewhoring Kardashianland. With the NBA lockout leaving him jobless for the time being, Kris, 26, has reportedly been partying while Kim juggles multiple projects and foots the bill for his new A-list lifestyle.
A family friend reveals that just days before Kim celebrated her 31st birthday in Las Vegas, the two “had it out.” A family friend reveals: “She told him he needs to do something productive. The greed work ethic in that family really means something. He needs to get off his ass, like, yesterday.”
Even worse, Kim is now beginning to question whether she should have married a pro athlete who’s 5 years younger someone she had only known nine months. “On some levels,” says the friend, “she feels like she made a mistake.” Wowzers.
UsWeekly adds that the couple got into a big blowout on October 16 as Kim exploded when she returned to the Gansevoort Park hotel, their temporary home in New York City, from a promotional trip to the United Arab Emirates (she reportedly received $1 mil for that trip). After four days apart, Kim was hoping to find an eager husband waiting to spend quality time with her, but instead Kris was nowhere to be found.
“He was with friends at a bar watching football,” says the family friend. “She was not psyched.” Adding to the couple’s issues is the fact that Kris has not been hitting the gym or working on his basketball skills during the NBA lockout. “Kris was supposed to be training when Kim was away.” And Kim was “extremely upset” to find out he hadn’t been doing that. “She told him this sh*t needs to stop,” says the friend. “He literally has nothing to do right now. He and his friends have milked the whole Kardashian thing: It was bottle service and table and free everything everywhere he went.”
With all their marital issues laid out (there’s even more mentioned in the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine out on newstands now), the mag states having a baby is indefinitely on hold for the couple. In fact, Kim has done a 180 on having a baby. If you recall, she stated back in June that she wanted to be pregnant “by the end of the year.” Fast forward to today and she is singing a much different tune.
“We’re going to wait,” she recently said. “We want to spend some time together and enjoy each other. Give me, like, a year. Then we’ll talk babies!”
Insiders however aren’t so sure the couple will make it a year. “I’m not saying they’re getting divorced tomorrow,” says a family friend. “But it’s much harder than she anticipated.”
Sources tell the mag that moving to L.A. is going to prove to be a “real test” for the couple.
Must say I’m absolutely not shocked these two are already having major issues just 2 months into their marriage. The #1 mistake Kimmie made was to start filming the Kourtney & Kim Take NY reality show immediately after their wedding. These two literally got married in front of cameras, went on their honeymoon — with paparazzi in tow, and then went to NYC to start filming a reality show. Where’s the alone time? To, you know, get to know each other as husband and wife? As much of a famewhore Kimmie is, even I was shocked she sold her honeymoon pictures. On top of having E! cameras and paparazzi always in their faces, they are spending tons of time apart due to Kim’s constant traveling for work and promotional appearances.
I however believe the biggest mistake was filming a reality show right away. Khloe Kardashian was smart about her marriage and waited over a year after marrying Lamar before filming their own spin-off. Why didn’t Kim do the same? Especially with someone like Kris who is so far removed from the Hollywood lifestyle. Plus Kris is only 26 years old while Kimmie is 31. A 26-year-old professional athlete who now has fame and access to more women than ever? If you guessed a recipe for disaster, you guessed right! So we have to ask again…

TELL US – SHOCKED THAT THIS IS GOING SO BAD SO FAST? DO YOU THINK THEY’LL MAKE IT A YEAR? FEEL BAD FOR KIM?
It’s the marriage that was never meant to be! You know the old saying: “If you marry for money, you will earn every penny” and I’m afraid that’s just the case with poor old Kim Kardashian and her hubby for the minuteKris Humphries-Kardashian!
A new report states that Kimmie settled for Kris as her second or third choice as she was simply eager to date a starring basketball player – any at all. Desperate, much Kimster? Or was E! pushing another Kardashian-Basketball love story?
An insider tells Wetpaint Entertainment that E! and Kim “were interested in having her date a big New York athlete for the debut season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and the Knicks were their first choice.” But I thought this was a reality show? #sarcasm.
Kimmie’s initial pick was much younger much richer basketball player, Danilo Gallinari! The New York Knicks were apparently approached by representative of E! to see if Danilo, 22, would have an interest in earning a little extra dough dating Kimmie for a chance at a little C-List fame on reality TV!
“Danilo said he would love to meet Kim but was not interested in dating her or being on a reality show,” an insider explains. Apparently the network didn’t want to take no for an answer and tried to convince the poor Danilo that “it would be great for his career.” Wisely he turned them down – either he or his handlers are smart cookies!
Well almost immediately after Danillo ran screaming back to Italy (where coincidentally Kim honeymooned), Kimmie was latched onto another much younger man – her current hubster, Kris, then of the New Jersey Nets. The Nets wouldn’t say if the network begged them to loan them some eligible menz so Kimmie didn’t look a desperate spinster on national television. Drat.
E! is also not commenting on this story because, naturally, it’s complete and utter BS. Sure it is. Kim claims she met Kris courtside after seeing him play and a friend introduced him.
Whatever the case, Kris may have had enough of his marriage of convenience and its demanding ways! Life & Style is reporting that Kris is over the constant camera crews invading his marriage and that being filmed 24/7 makes him uncomfortable. So much so that he is threatening not to film for upcoming seasons of Kim’s zillion horrible TV shows, telling her: “‘I’ll only be your little TV husband for a few more weeks.”
“Kris wants out of filming,” an insider reports. “They’ve had no time without a camera. He knows he signed up for this, but I think it’s weighed on him.” Especially since that Kardashian money is slow to trickle in! “Kris makes only about $20,000 per episode,” the insider reveals. “He wants more to make it worthwhile!” Of course, it’s all about the money with this crew! I guess that is pretty much the only redeeming benefit to being a Kardashian accoutrement!
Apparently Kris isn’t afraid to challenge his much more famous wife and “is really the only person who stands up to her,”
“He says no when everyone else says yes,” a friend reveals. “I think secretly it challenges her and turns her on. No one says no to her except Kris. It frustrates her, but it ignites her.” Um… yuck. And I don’t believe you.

DO YOU BELIEVE THE RUMORS THAT KIM AND E! WERE SCANNING THE NBA CIRCUIT FOR POTENTIAL MATES? OR DOES KIM REALLY LOVE KRIS? DO YOU THINK KIM AND KRIS WILL LAST OR ARE THEY ON THEIR WAY TO DIVORCE COURT?
Kim Kardashian’s love life just never seems to work out – it’s just one unfortunate situation after another for the notorious sex-tape star and this time her marriage to Kris Humphries-Kardashian may be in big-time trouble! Their marriage has been plagued by rumors of tension since day one and it seems like things aren’t improving for the couple!
Life & Style is reporting that Kim is “miserable” and she and Kris are always fighting. In fact, Kim was recently overheard complaining to a friend over mani-pedis at Clover Nails in NYC, that she “didn’t know marriage was going to be so hard.” Wait – wasn’t she married before?
“With all this travel and work, it’s been a big adjustment for both of us,” she lamented. Further breaking the couple apart is Kim’s impending travels to Dubai and Australia. Unfortunately Kris is “not invited!” “She’s leaving him behind,” a source reveals.
Apparently mere months after her publicity stunt wedding, Kim wants to cry time-out on her marriage! “She doesn’t feel like she’s ready for the commitment,” a friend confided to the magazine. “Kim feels this all happened too soon, that she didn’t take the time to get to know Kris. She’s embarrassed – she rushed into things, and now she’s stuck.” Yikes.
Additionally Kim fears Kris used her for fame just like she used him for money and publicity.“Kim is definitely worried that Kris isn’t mature enough and could be using her for her money – especially since he’s not working right now with the NBA lockout,” according to a source from Kourtney & Kim Take New York(that’s a show?).
His immaturity combined with no certainty about where the couple is going to put down roots as they wait for Kris to sign with a basketball team, has forced Kim to put her baby-making plans on hold. Kim is apparently very dissatisfied that the couple has no real home and is currently living in a fancy hotel in NYC. The horror!
The source reveals Kim wishes she could participate in traditional wifely duties, like cooking Kris meals, but he would rather ditch her for burgers with his buddies. Makes sense to me – can she even talk about anything but herself?!
However, let’s get real here, their marital problems actually lie in Kim’s fears that Kris is upstaging her in the reality TV world! “He tries to have creative input in Kourtney & Kim Take New York. It’s her show, and he tries to dominate it.” She’s the number one famewhore in this relationship – not him!
Perhaps Kim is holding off on filing for the big D until they can cash all the million dollar checks they amassed in her big Made-For-TV, fantasy wedding! At least she can console herself by snuggling her Benjamins!

THOUGHTS ON KIM’S MARITAL WOES? ANOTHER PUBLICITY STUNT OR IS THE COUPLE HEADED FOR DIVORCE?
Speaking with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM Radio show last week, Kim announced the couple is frantically busy with a new move to NY and figuring out where Kris will be playing next season, but happy! “I feel good. It was kind of crazy to go right from our wedding straight to New York,” Kim announced. “It’s been work non-stop, and I think [Kris] finally appreciates all the hard work we do.” I am guessing by hard work she means non-stop product pimping and reality TV whoring.
TheKeeping Up With The Kardashians star does admit there was some tension pre-wedding because she wanted help planning her fantasy wedding. E! didn’t hire her a wedding planning team? “I asked him to do a few things,” Kim recounts. “And he kept on being so opinionated … but when I asked him to do something, nothing would happen … It would take him forever to do something.”
“So I think I finally just lost it and was like, ‘I can’t do his seating chart, I can’t do any of the things on his side of the family.'”
Kim also reveals she will move wherever Kris’ career takes him! Hey, reality cameras can follow you anywhere! “I would go to Oklahoma City. We’re not going to live a separate life,” she explained. And as for babies – they’re coming! “Give us a year,” Kim teased!
While everything is happy on the marriage front, not so much on the business side of things! Famed jewelry designer, Alexis Bittar, whose pieces are spotted on celebs everywhere is calling Kim out as a copy-cat! Alexis claims that Kim’s collection, Belle Noel features pieces that look eerily similar to pieces he has actually loaned Kim to wear!
“In the reality TV world, there are so many people coming out with lines to capitalize on their TV shows. They are not designers and they are just stealing,” Alexis fumed! “I passed the Dash pop up store on Broadway, and I saw that Kim’s pieces were very similar to mine, and she definitely has been taking note (of my designs),” he continues.
After realizing Kim may be borrowing his items to replicate, the designer is calling quits on allowing her to wear his goods! “The tricky thing is that we have sent pieces to Kim in the past to wear, so now I have told my staff we cannot send anything to her.” Yikes! Didn’t they have this problem with their BeBe collection also?
Alexis isn’t planning legal action – yet! And he does admit he hasn’t spoken to Kim about the idea theft! “I haven’t talked to Kim about it, the truth is she might not even know. She might be so far removed from it (the design process), and her designers just go shopping and knock things off, “ he snipes!
“But we are definitely not lending to Kim any more, she has been barred,” he concludes. WOW! Bad news for Kimmie!
Kim’s rep, of coursed, dismissed the accusations calling the similarities “purely coincidental” and claiming that Kim “is constantly inspired by her travels which she incorporates into her designs.”
I say, where there’s smoke – there’s fire! Photos of Kim’s Bella Noel Collection and Alexis Bittar’s collection are below.

Newlyweds/non-famewhores Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are already renewing their wedding vows despite being married for only a month-and-a-half!
The made for TV vow renewal for theKeeping Up With The Kardashiansstars was all courtesy of Ellen DeGeneres! On a pre-taped episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show (scheduled to air today), Kimmie, 30, and her NBA hubby Kris, 26, were candid with Ellen about their newlywed life and what they’d do differently about their Aug. 20 wedding.
“[I’d] elope,” said Kimmie Kakes. “I would say [have a] longer after-party, but I was so crazy for an entire month…I literally went crazy. It was so stressful,” she added of the wedding which she planned with the help of pimpmomager Kris Jenner in only a few months.
Kris also shared his regret, echoing Kimmie’s statement by stating he would have wanted “a longer after party.”
The two are currently doing a ton of press in other to promote their E! Wedding Special — Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event which is set to air this Sunday on E! at 8 p.m. ET.
In other Kardashian news, Khloe Kardashian, who co-hosted the fourth hour of the Today Show on Monday, opened up about her fertility struggles.
Khloe, who’s been married to NBA hubbyLamar Odom for over 2 years now (yes it’s been 2 years already), has always been vocal about wanting kids right away. However, that has yet to happen for Khloe.
“We would love to have kids,” said Khloe, 27. “It’s so hard. I never knew about ovulation and the limited amount of time you have to get pregnant. I never knew about that. No one ever taught me that. When you have schedules such as ours, it’s really hard to hit that mark. So it’s frustrating, but definitely, I want to have kids. It’s scary [thinking], ‘Oh God, what if I physically can’t have kids?’”
The Kardashians continue their take over of the Today Show this week as Kris Jenner will co-host today, Kourtney Kardashian will co-host tomorrow, and Kimmie Kakes will finish off by co-hosting on Friday.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KIMMIE & KRIS RENEWING THEIR VOWS ALREADY? THOUGHTS ON KHLOE’S COMMENTS?
After years of numerous relationships with numerous professional athletes, Kim Kardashian is officially engaged! The E! reality star graces the latest cover of PEOPLE magazine as she sold the mag gave the mag the exclusive on her engagement details.
So just how did NBA beau of six months Kris Humphries, 26, pop the question to Kim, 30? Well it all took place on May 18 when Kim walked into her Beverly Hills home, and Kris was waiting in her bedroom on bended knee with four words written in red rose petals: “WILL YOU MARRY ME?”
“I didn’t expect this at all,” Kim tells PEOPLE of the romantic, surprise proposal. “I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now.” Really Kim? Because you kind of gave an exclusive interview to Life & Style magazine just weeks ago talking about your dream engagement and your desire to marry Kris. But who’s keeping track! We will go with Kimmy’s statement that this was a total shock!
Kris, who popped the question with a custom-designed, 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring, also spoke to PEOPLE! “I just knew I wanted it to be big,” says Kris, who had the help of Kim’s mom Kris Jenner to help plan an intimate family celebration later that evening.
“Kris really didn’t want a big celebration, but he had jokingly told my mom he’d be fine if there were mini-horses there,” says Kim with a laugh. “Later that night at the party, my mom brought out two mini-horses, covered in glitter, for us! It was hysterical!”
You can read more about Kim’s exclusive engagement details in the latest issue of PEOPLE magazine out this Friday. This marriage, er if it does happen, would make the second marriage for Kim. She eloped back in 2000 when she was age 19 and married her first love/music producer Damon Thomas. That marriage however did not last and in her divorce documents, Kim alleged abuse. You can read more about Kim’s first marriage here.
