ET Online, a pretty reputable media outlet, reported sources close to the couple stated a wedding was “imminent”; however adding it would be the “complete antithesis of sister Kim’s lavish affair and that it will be low key, just family.” Hmm, could it be due to the public backlash from Kimmie’s extravagant wedding that only lasted 72 days???
The report added that there was no word yet on whether the nuptials would be televised (like these people would ever do anything away from cameras!). Perhaps realizing that the last thing the public wants is another fake Kardashian wedding, pimpmomager Kris Jenner wasted no time in denying the wedding report.
In a statement to Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush, Kris insisted the wedding report is “false!” Me thinks they’re just waiting for the backlash to die down before earning more millions from another televised wedding!
Meanwhile, the Hollywood Life blog is reporting that Kris is still working hard behind-the-scenes to get her family out of the mess Kimmie Kakes has put them in.
Her genius solution? To pimp out push her youngest daughters, Kendalland Kylie Jenner, to the public eye while taking attention off her talentless older daughters!
“Kris wants E! to move ahead with their plans to tape a reality show centered around Kendall and Kylie. But E! hasn’t made any final decisions yet,” reveals a source. “Kris thinks the time to do it is now. She thinks it’s perfect timing.”
The insider continues, “She thinks a reality show about her two youngest daughters would take the heat off Kimmy and the whole divorce scandal,” adding, “She even thinks her son Rob should have some sort of reality show because he attracted so many fans from when he was on Dancing With the Stars. Kris thinks more is better.” Le sigh.
In more Kardashian news, TMZ reported over the weekend thatKhloe Kardashian is now facing an assault lawsuit.
Chantal Spears, a transgender woman, is claiming that on December 5, 2009, Khloe beat the crap out of her outside a Hollywood night club. The reason? Chantal a.k.a. Ronald Spears allegedly walked up to Lamar and told him he was “too young to be married.”
Chantal/Ronald, who is seeking unspecified damages, claims Khloe violently struck her “in and about her body,” causing her serious injuries. She, however, denies she provoked Khloe.
And finally, the ratings are out for Sunday night’s episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York and it appears they remained steady for the most part despite the very boring episode filled with manufactured drama. There was a slight decline from the 3.2 million total viewers who tuned in to the premiere episode, with 2.9 million viewers returning for episode two.

TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE KRIS OR DO YOU THINK THE KARDASHIANS ARE JUST WAITING FOR THE BACKLASH TO DIE DOWN BEFORE PUSHING OUT KOURTNEY’S FAIRYTALE WEDDING? WOULD YOU WATCH A KENDALL/KYLIE SPINOFF?
After realizing hardly anyone is siding with her and/or seeing her as a victim in her divorce battle,Kim Kardashian is now changing her tactics, moving away from attacking her husband, Kris Humphries… at least on the record.
While Kris has had to endure camp Kardashian leaking all sorts of negative stories about him to the press in the past month, he finally had enough this week after filing an annulment — accusing his wife of fraud and simply using him as a prop on her E! reality show. TMZ then quoted Kim as saying Kris was “pathetic” amongst other things. Unfortunately for Kimmie, the public remains overwhelmingly on Kris’s side as most believe he got used by the Kardashian clan.
PEOPLE magazine is now reporting sources close to Kim are claiming she no longer wants to fight dirty. “The filing is, of course, upsetting,” says the source. “She respects Kris and just wants them both to find peace and move on… Kim doesn’t want a battle.” Riiight. No word yet on whether Kimmie and her camp will stop leaking stories about Kris to the press, you know, stories like the current Star magazine cover.
As for Kris, sources close to him tell TMZ he doesn’t want a divorce because of his religion. Apparently, that religion didn’t prohibit him from marrying a sex-tape-fame-whore skank.
According to TMZ, Kris filed for an annulment because it wipes the slate clean by simply erasing the marriage. Even better, if his annulment request is denied, Kris will reportedly ask for a legal separation that will extend indefinitely. And even though an indefinite separation would prevent him from marrying again, he still believes it’s preferable to a divorce. Wowzers.
Legal experts, however, state Kim can still get a divorce with or without the help of Kris as California only requires the consent of one-half of a couple to end a marriage.
Days after an unwed Kourtney announced she was expecting her second child with baby daddy Scott Disick, Farrah tweeted: “I’m shocked Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant again. Did she not learn anything from Teen Mom? Maybe it’s a fake pregnancy like Kim’s wedding. SAD.”
After some fans alerted Farrah that Kourtney, 32, and Scott, 27, are both adults that can take care of their children, Farrah responded, “Double standards in this world? Yes, and guess what? Age and money honestly do not change a person’s poor choice. Quit making excuses.”
The Kardashians, who were probably more than happy to have this new controversy, wasted no time in slamming Farrah! Below are some of their responses via Twitter –
Kourtney - “Why would I have anything to do with teen mom? I’m 32 years old! I may look young honey, but don’t get it twisted. :)”
Scott - “Were not teenagers ya fucking moron.”
Khloe - “I don’t even know who this person is? How do u?” was Khloe’s reply to Scott’s tweet.
Scott - “I just thought she was some shit stain on twitter, no?” was Scott’s mature response to Khloe.
Yikes. As for Farrah, she sort of backtracked this morning by tweeting: “4 all who misunderstood: regards to kourtney K.~ I hope she takes her relationship w/her boyfriend more serious 4 their children-takecare.” And no, that makes zero sense to me as well!
While having two kids out of wedlock is definitely not the best route to go, it’s a bit ridic for Farrah to compare the situation of a 32-year-old Kourtney to Teen Moms. And darn you Farrah for forcing me to defend a Kardashian!
Finally, to further distract us from Kimmie’s divorce mess, Khloe Kardashian is also making headlines after she fired back at her “haters” for criticizing her looks. See, Khloe was photographed (the picture is below) going to the gym without makeup which led to some not so kind comments from fans.
Khloe of course took to her Twitter to respond. She wrote, “Some people are so stressed trying to be perfectly flawless…. but I’m so HAPPY to be perfectly flawed… Haters are like crickets; they make a lot of noise you can hear but you never see them, then you walk right by them and they’re quiet.”
Khloe later added, “Its crazy 2me that if I dont go 2the gym I get judged. If I do go I still get judged. Yes when u work out u sweat, get red… This is why I live for me and not for anyone else. You learn quickly that you will NEVER make everyone happy in life. But I am happy :).”
Apparently those who are very happy always make time to respond to their “haters.” Seems like the Kardashians could definitely use a hobby or two… better yet some well deserved time away from the spotlight.

TELL US – YOU BUYING THAT KIM WANTS PEACE? DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH FARRAH’S CRITISIM OF KOURTNEY? THOUGHTS ON KHLOE FIRING BACK AT THE HATERS?
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.

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?
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.

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?
According to a new report, Kim Kardashian is not only experiencing the wrath of the general public over her sham marriage and quickie divorce, but also the wrath of some of her family members as her actions now threaten her family’s multi million-dollar empire!
“The family has split into two camps since the divorce – Kim and her mom versus the rest of the family, who are really angry at her,” an insider reveals. “Encouraged by her mom, Kris, Kim has become a fame-addicted, money-hungry monster. She has lost touch with reality.”
The insider adds that Khloe is furious with Kim as her divorce has now put the Kardashian empire, reportedly worth over $65 million, in jeopardy. In fact, the two reportedly got into a huge blowout during their recent visit to Australia.
“Khloe was mad because Kim was trying to look sad [about her divorce],” describes an onlooker. “She was telling Kim that people would see right through it, and Kim was only making things worse.” Things got so nasty between the sisters that they were later seen “swearing at each other.”
Following the public outcry, the Kardashians are now said to be in panic and are trying to do “damage control” so they don’t lose everything. “Divorcing Kris so soon after such an expensive wedding, done in front of TV cameras, could well be the kiss of death for the whole family’s career,” explains the insider.
Indeed, as a report by the Hollywood Reporter confirms the Kardashians’ fears which is that their empire is now in danger following Kim’s quickie divorce. Marketing experts are now stating Kim’s actions have damaged her brand identity and threaten to change the way the public and future employers view her.
“She’s completely betrayed the expectations of her brand, because she was a girl with ordinary values, ordinary hopes and dreams who happened to be very glamorous and exotic and happened to be living a very extraordinary life,” President and Brand Strategist at New York’s Truth Consulting, Linda Ong, tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Now, what she’s done is shown that she is as shallow as people like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan and the train wrecks of Hollywood that we detest,” Ong continues. “She’s exposed herself as really not one of us, but someone who is the kind of person we thought she wasn’t.”
Another marketing expert Christine Kirk, CEO and founder of Social Muse Communications, also believes permanent damage has been done to the Kardashian brand.
“I think it’s more about revealing her desire, her hunger for continuing to grow this empire that she’s built,” states Kirk. “And I don’t necessarily think it’s shallowness, I think it’s getting caught up in maybe dollar signs and the overall potential that the wedding could have on her overall brand and her empire. And I think that she revealed that.”
Linda adds: “She was impulsive and flighty and naive or money hungry. I mean none of these things are good qualities.”
The media backlash doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon (see, below) are there are three very unflattering magazine covers for Kimmie from this week’s tabloids.
As for Kimmie’s husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, he now reportedly feels used by her. “Kris started to feel like a punching bag,” a friend tells Life and Style magazine. “He felt like the guy who got married to Kim on TV, not really her husband. He felt used.” Kris’ dad revealed earlier this week that his son was completely blindsided by the divorce filing and found out about it through the media.
As for Kimmie, she recently wrapped up filming in Atlanta for the new Tyler Perry movie and has also taken up tweeting again. When her little sister Kylie Jenner tweeted that “it’s always the people who know the least about you who want to judge you the most,” Kimmie responded: “What a wise little soul my baby sister.” Poor little rich Kimmie…
