Kim Kardashian Backlash

Put a fork in them! It appears the Kardashian family continues to be on their last leg of fame as the public backlash against them continues to grow!

Following Kim Kardashian‘s divorce filing two weeks ago after 72 days of marriage and pocketing $17 million, there are now several petitions against the Keeping Up With The Kardashian family urging E! to kick them off the air!

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.

KHLOE AND KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN UPSET WITH KIM OVER DIVORCE BACKLASH!

The movement doesn’t end with the petitions as there are also Facebook pages and websites like BoycotttheKardashians.com calling for their demise.

“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 Heidi and 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.

TELL US – HAVE YOU SIGNED THE PETITION? DO YOU WELCOME THE DEMISE OF THE KARDASHIANS AWAY FROM THE PUBLIC? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM WILL GO INTO HIDING?

Not only did Kim Kardashian capitalize on her 72-day sham wedding, but it appears she will also be capitalizing on the divorce!

According to a report by the Hollywood Reporter, days before officially filing for divorce from husband of two months, Kris Humphries, the two actually filmed their “breakup” for the E! network, to be aired on the upcoming season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York! Wowzers.

While E! refused to confirm the report, a source close to Kris tells the site that things got pretty bad between the newlyweds, to the point that the couple shot a scene for the finale in which they decided to “take a break” from each other. Who knew married folks could simply breakup?

In fact, E! is already promoting the end of Kimmie’s marriage by releasing a new trailer for the Kourtney and Kim Take New York series. The new promo begins with a narrator stating, “They may have the world at their feet, but things can change in a New York minute.” It then ends with Kim, 31, and Kris, 26, having a heated argument over their future together. That new promo clip is below.

Fast forward to this morning and Kim remains in major damage control mode as she is now telling TMZ, oops, we mean “sources” close to Kim are now telling TMZ she will not allow E! to film her divorce. Those “sources” state Kim will not be shooting any footage for Keeping Up with the Kardashians until the beginning of next year and is insisting she does not want to exploit the “real” moments behind the divorce on TV.

So a marital breakup is okay for E! to film but the actual divorce filing isn’t? Gotcha Kimmie!

In other news, amidst the backlash from both the public and the media (check out this week’s cover of PEOPLE magazine below), Kim continues to speak out both on and off the record in an attempt to defend herself against what most believe was a showmance of a marriage.

Off the record, Kim sources close to Kim tell TMZ that another reason she decided to pull the plug on her marriage was because Kris’ family hated her. According to TMZ, Kim is telling friends that Kris’ claims that his family loved her is total B.S. adding that they had nothing but disdain for her and her family and never wanted their son to marry.

Kimmie is reportedly telling others: “It’s ridiculous that Kris’ family is making Kris look like the victim.” Kim told the sources that Kris’ family constantly “belittled” her, were “nasty” to her family and a lot of this was reportedly captured on camera. Kim is now claiming Kris’ family is partially to blame for the breakup. Ah, it seems just like a few days ago Kim was claiming she filed for divorce because Kris was becoming a famewhore! Spin, spin, spin… until something sticks!

TMZ is also reporting that Kim and Kris fought a lot during the negotiating of their prenup this summer. In the end, Kim got her way as the couple’s assets stayed separate and Kris only “got a limited cut of the wedding money”, estimated at being over $17 million.

Meanwhile, Kim appeared on Australia’s Sunrise morning show via E!, her first TV interview since filing for divorce on Monday, and talked about the backlash she has been receiving while also claiming she plans to take some time away from the spotlight. Riiiight.

“It’s kind of what you get from living your life so publicly on a reality show,” Kim said of the negative feedback. “I get that questions are going to be asked and the scrutiny’s going to come, and there’ll be mixed emotions and so many rumors,” she continued with sister Khloe Kardashian by her side. “That comes along with the territory, but also, it teaches me I kind of want to step back a little bit.”

Kim was then asked if she ever considered taking some time off away from the public, Kim replied: “Of course, I do want that time to be with myself and close friends and family. I don’t think you ever prepare yourself for when the right time is, so I will get that time somewhere in the near future.” Fingers crossed!

As for the status of Kim and Kris’ relationship today, TMZ adds they have NOT communicated since the divorce filing on Monday despite reports that claim they’ve been talking.

The couple reportedly made a mutual decision not to communicate, at least for the time being. Even better for the two, they don’t have to worry about retrieving items from each other as TMZ states “neither Kim nor Kris ever officially moved into the other’s home” therefore making this a clean split. How convenient. Kris Jenner also confirms to TMZ that she hasn’t spoken to Kris since the divorce filing.

Finally, below is this week’s PEOPLE magazine cover which questions whether or not Kim’s marriage was simply a publicity stunt. Just as we predicted earlier this week, the media backlash has began. PEOPLE’s cover is all the more surprising as they were the ones who reportedly paid Kimmie millions for her wedding photos, and they are arguably the most reputable weekly magazine out there. To sum this up: When PEOPLE magazine starts to turn on ya, the end of your “career” is near…

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? TACKY TO FILM THE BREAKUP FOR E!? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM WILL TAKE SOME TIME OFF DUE TO THE BACKLASH?

Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian found herself on the receiving end of some very public backlash yesterday, all over the Casey Anthony verdict.

Moments after the disgusting shocking not guilty verdict came in the Florida case yesterday, majority of the public were incredibly outraged and many compared the results of the case to that of the now infamous 1995 O.J. Simpson verdict.

The irony of the situation was lost on poor Kimmie whose father, the late Robert Kardashian, happened to be one of OJ’s defense attorneys who got him off the hook. Kimmie took to her twitter page to voice her opinions. “WHAT!!!!???!!!! CASEY ANTHONY FOUND NOT GUILTY!!!! I am speechless!!!” tweeted Kim. “I am truly sick over the Casey Anthony verdict! So if the courts don’t believe she is guilty then who do they think killed this little baby?” she added.

Immediately after making her tweets, Kim received some very nasty and negative replies from many who felt she should not be commenting on the case due to her dad’s involvement in the OJ case. “ME TOO!! ITS LIKE WHEN YOUR DAD HELPED GET O.J. OFF!!” was one of the more popular responses made by a twitter user to Kim’s statement of being “speechless.”

Kimmie then tweeted, “Reading the comments here &its nuts people think just bc I was close to the OJ trial I can’t have my own opinion on the Casey Anthony case?” To which a genius twitter user @MattHelgeson replied, “To be fair I don’t think you should have opinions about anything, not just this case.” Kimmie took the hint and stopped tweeting about the case all together.

Meanwhile, other reality stars were also outraged by the verdict. Below are some of those tweets -

Bethenny Frankel – “I’m so disgusted by the verdict that I’m almost consumed by it.”

Ramona Singer – “A very sad day that justice was not served for Caylee. Please let that poor little baby rest in peace.”

Caroline Manzo – “The defense team should show some kind of respect for this poor baby. Now is not the time for arrogance….. Jackass”

Teresa Giudice – “So insane to be in FL w Gia when Casey Anthony verdict comes out… As a mom of 4 beautiful girls, I just can’t… #disgusting #RIPCaylee”

Melissa Gorga – “Shame on you Casey… Bye….”

Royce Reed – “My what a works we live in… Nancy Grace bout 2go OFF!!! I honestly didn’t think murder 1 but def manslaughter. Wow! Only Guilty of lying!”

Kyle Richards - “So exactly WHO IS responsible for dumping Caylee’s lifeless body away like trash? nobody?”

Jill Zarin – “I can NOT believe Casey Anthony was found NOT GUILTY! What..the glove didn’t fit? The is terrible. I am SHOCKED.”

What’s sad is that when this is all said and done, Casey will end up wealthier than ever with the paid interviews, million dollar book deal, made for TV movie and of course somewhere down the line perhaps her own reality show. In fact an offer to star in a porn movie has already been made to her. Disgusting times we live in these days. As for Kim, she shouldn’t be held responsible for her father’s actions, but perhaps she should have had some tact and stayed away from the issue.

TELL US – DOES KIM DESERVE BACKLASH FOR SHARING HER OPINION ON THE CASE? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE CASEY VERDICT? DID SHE GET AWAY WITH MURDER?
