A source close to Kimmie tells RadarOnline, “Kim is absolutely numb and was truly surprised and shocked at the backlash she has gotten since she decided to file for divorce.”
In fact, Kim, who has spent the week in Australia snapping pics with fans and promoting her new Kardashian Handbag line with sister Khloe Kardashian, has now decided to cancel the remainder of her public appearances in order to pretend she is mourning the demise of her marriage!
“I am very disappointed that I am unable to attend the Swisse marquee, but I hope to come back and work with the Swisse team at another point in time,” Kim said. She continued, “I love our fan base out here. Of course I do really want some time to myself and it has been tough. But I didn’t wanna bail on everyone and, you know, skip out on this commitment.” Kim was reportedly set to receive $150,000 for that appearance.
According to TMZ, Kim is telling friends she is so “distraught” over the divorce and wave of publicity that followed that she decided to bail on her Australian appearances and return to the U.S. Apparently this is the first time she’s ever missed “work” and is saying she just couldn’t handle it. Poor poor Kimmie Kakes.
Kim is quoted as saying: “I need to take care of me now, and I can’t work for awhile.” TMZ adds that it’s unclear if Kim will also be putting the brakes on her reality show, or whether she’ll simply be more selective as to what she does and doesn’t do in the near future.
And when it comes to Kim’s $2 million engagement ring, pimpmomager Kris Jenneris making it crystal clear Kim will NOT be returning it! You know, despite being only married for 72 days.
During her appearance on Good Morning America today to promote her new book All Things Kardashian, Kris was asked if Kim is planning to give back the 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond engagement ring (estimated at $2 million) Kris Humphriesgave to her back in June. Her response? “I hate an Indian giver. It’s a gift. Keep your gift,” said Kris. Wowzers. In fact Kris is now receiving some backlash from Native American organizations for her “Indian giver” comment.
As for the jilted husband Kris, remember him? Kim has stopped following him on Twitter while he continues to follow her. In fact, Kris was photographed smiling and wearing his wedding ring on Monday morning in Minnesota while Kim was in L.A. filing for divorce. As we have reported, Kris found out about the divorce through TMZ.
Kris has also been lying low since the divorce filing and even canceled a scheduled Las Vegas appearance for this weekend. If only Kimmie had the same tact…

TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE KIM CANCELED HER APPEARANCES BECAUSE SHE IS “DISTRAUGHT” OR IS IT DUE TO THE PUBLIC BACKLASH? SHOULD SHE KEEP THE RING?
Hot on the heels of Kim Kardashian filing for divorce after a mere 72 days of marriage, the Kardashian family is desperately trying to save face after fans and media outlets expressed outrage following Kim’s multi-million dollar televised wedding and quickie marriage to Kris Humphries! Good thing nobody changed their name!
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star made her first public appearance since the divorce filing (above) with sister Khloe Kardashianpromoting their new handbag collection in Sydney, Australia today. Below, more photos of Kim and her well perfected, definitely not practiced at all, sad pouty face!
Meanwhile, she posted a special and heartfelt (ha!) “A Message To My Fans” all three of you: Kourtney, Khloe, and Kris J on her personal webpage describing why she chose to file for divorce without ever even residing in the same home as her husband. Apparently Kim, 31, got caught up in the excitement of a wedding and the idea of love without, you know, caring about who she married or the actual marriage.
”I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon,” she confesses. “I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have.” When diamonds, custom made designer dresses and dollar signs are dangled in front of you, perhaps it is hard to take a step back and re-evaluate.
“I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people,” Kim admits. “I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn’t turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.” I would kinda feel bad for her, except I don’t!
Kim is also furious that people would accuse her of marrying for all the wrong reasons! “First and foremost, I married for love,” she insists. “I can’t believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show!” Right…
“I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it’s who I am!”
“We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open!” Kim declares, claiming that part of being a Kardashian is famewhoring having a camera on you 24/7!
As for those pesky rumors that she banked upwards of $17M from the nuptials, Kim is adamantly disputing those claims! “These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this,” Kim states.
Since she can’t keep the gifts when the marriage didn’t even last six months, Kim is now claiming that she will be donating all “the money for all the gifts” to the Dream Foundation, a charity that helps dreams come true for those living with life threatening illness. A report by TMZ states she is planning to donate $200,000 (the estimated sum of all the gifts she received) to the charity.
Pimpmomma Kris Jenner is also speaking out defending Kim’s actions and insisting nary a cent was earned on the made for TV wedding. Appearing on the radio show Johnjay and Rich, Kris claims Kimmie Kakes had to make the “very difficult decision” to end her marriage “on her own.” Clearly, since Kris H found out through the tabloids!
“[Kim’s] not the first person in the world to get a divorce or have something like this happen to, and she won’t be the last,” Kris argued. “She just happens to be a very public person with a couple of television shows on the air so it makes it bigger than life.”
“She didn’t make a dime off of this wedding,” Kris claimed. “She actually spent millions of dollars on this wedding, so it’s not something that she thought would ever not be happily ever after.” Funny… I don’t believe either of you!
“People just have to stop judging,” Kris admonished. “Take a step back. Let Kim do what she needs to do and just be supportive. It’s not easy.” I think the best way to avoid judgment is to get out of the public eye!
While Kris is home trying to pick up the pieces of his broken life — Kim jetted off to Australia, following a massage, to do more promotion for whatever krap she is hawking now. More photos below of Kim, sister Khloe and her brother-in-law Lamar Odom!
According to a poll by TMZ, over 95% of the public do NOT believe Kris’ claims that Kim did not make a dime off her wedding. And can you blame them? After all they got paid for the following according to a report by the NY POST –
$15 million plus profit for four-hour, two-part wedding special on E!
$2.5 million for exclusive photos with People magazine
$300,000 for exclusive engagement announcement with People
$100,000 for exclusive rights to bridal shower with Britain’s OK! mag
$50,000 to have Bachelorette party at Tao in Las Vegas
Kris went on The Today Show this morning and further expanded on the claims that Kim did not make a dime off the wedding. According to Kris, while Kimmie received over a million from the sale of the wedding pics and from E!, all the money went into her wedding and she apparently had to use some of her own money to finish paying for the lavish wedding. Not.Buying.It.
Another fun tidbit, Kathie Lee Gifford, who has been a close family friend of the Kardashians for decades, revealed on The Today Show yesterday that she suspected something was off with the couple as they barely interacted during their August wedding rehearsal dinner. “I never saw them together the entire night,” said Kathie.
Even more interesting? At the wedding reception Khloe whispered to Kathie Lee: “I give it six f ***ing months.”

DO YOU BELIEVE KIM DIDN’T MAKE ANY MONEY FROM HER TELEVISED WEDDING? DO YOU SUPPORT KIM’S DECISION OR ARE YOU FED UP WITH THEIR PLOYS FOR ATTENTIONS?

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…

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? ARE YOU BUYING CAMP KIM’S REASONS FOR DIVORCING KRIS?
CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE THE PHOTO OF KIM TAKEN YESTERDAY -
Hours after Kim Kardashianfiled for divorce, TMZ is reporting her soon to be ex-hubby Kris Humphries found out about it this morning… the same time everyone else did. In fact other media outlets are reporting a “blindsided” Kris also found out the same way everyone else did… by reading TMZ. Wowzers.
Sources close to Kris, 26, reveal he did NOT want a divorce and was desperately trying to save his marriage to Kim, 31. Kris, who’s religious, is reportedly telling friends he and Kim discussed the possibility of divorce, but he believed they could work things out.
Kris is insisting he never cheated and is described as being “bummed” over the divorce filing. Once again, he did not find out about the divorce until this morning through TMZ.
As for the reasons for their divorce, TMZ is reporting the two simply couldn’t agree on their future together, mainly where they would be residing as husband and wife. Apparently Kris really wanted Kim to move to Minnesota with him and believed Kim was on board with the plan…. except she wasn’t. (Err isn’t this something you discuss, you know, BEFORE spending millions on a lavish wedding???).
Sources reveal Kim, who’s from L.A., wanted to remain close to her family. She also felt that staying put in Los Angeles was best for her “career.”
As for the million dollar question — why didn’t they discuss this before tying the knot? — sources tell TMZ the Keeping Up With The Kardashian stars got carried away in all the wedding hoopla and simply thought they would figure things out after the wedding.
The same sources also claim the split is amicable, citing Kris and Kimmie simply realized they were “not a long-term fit” and not a moment too soon folks! After all, they only raked in a mere $17 million from the wedding extravaganza! Something however tells us things will get nasty if the reports of Kris not finding out about the divorce until this morning are true.
As for Kimmie, she released the following statement moments ago: “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.”
Moments after Kim released her statement, Kris released his statement: “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
Unfortunately for Kimmie, this actually marks her second divorce. See Kim eloped with Damon Thomas back in January 2000, much to her parents dismay. She was 19 at the time, and Damon was 29. Kim has alleged Damon physically abused her during their marriage. Damon filed for divorce in 2003.
And to all the legal experts out there, wouldn’t it make for sense for Kimmie to annul the marriage rather than file for divorce? But then again, an annulment doesn’t carry the same media sensation as a Divorce! And I ask once again, what happened to trying to work things out? You know, therapy, counseling, etc. So much for the so called ‘sanctity of marriage.’
I do believe this latest stunt will mark the beginning of the end for the Kardashians. The public doesn’t like to be made a fool out of, and quite frankly, pocketing $17 million from a wedding that only lasted 72 days is doing just that. Paris Hilton faded away following her over exposure from going to jail for a DUI. Heidi and Spencer faded away following their over exposure from a fake divorce and an even faker sex tape. Kimmie will suffer the same fate following the over exposure from not only her fake wedding but also her quickie divorce. I predict there will be A TON of public backlash, both from the media and the public. And once the media starts turning on you… that usually marks the end of your career. I don’t think she will recover from this.
Interestingly, Psychotherapist, Relationship Expert, and HLN contributor Stacy Kaiser revealed five reasons she wasn’t surprised Kim’s marriage failed based on what she saw on the E! wedding special. Stacy revealed the five reasons below via her Twitter page –
#1 Kim listened to her mother over her man. You need to make your husband a priority.
#2 Kris was already trying to punish her by growing a mustache and hanging with friends.
#3 Her sisters both didn’t support the relationship- close family discord hurts marriage.
#4 Kim and Kris both showed lack of respect to each other – Respect is part of foundation.
#5 Newlyweds need time to connect. Kim’s too busy working & promoting instead of wife-ing.
All very valid points. And a look at Kimmie’s twitter page shows the she made her last tweet this morning when she wrote: “Our store #KardashianKhaos is opening tomorrow at 9am at @TheMirageLV We are so excited!! Kardashian Khaos has arrived!” She wrote that knowing she was filing for divorce today and knowing pretty much everyone would be visiting her twitter page to see her response. Let that sink in for a minute…

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? HAVE WE BEEN PUNKED? WILL THIS FINALLY MARK THE END OF THE KARDASHIANS?
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.
Keep checking back as we’ll continue to bring you updates as they become available.
TELL US – THOUGHTS? SHOCKED? DID YOU AT LEAST THINK THEY WOULD MAKE IT 3 MONTHS?
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?
A mere two months following Kim Kardashian’s zillion dollar “wedding of the year” (ha!) to Kris Humphries-Kardashian the rumors of marital issues are simply refusing to go away. In fact, several new reports claim the couple is moving dangerously close to splitsville.
Apparently while Kimmie was in the United Arab Emirates & Dubai (wearing 6” heels on a camel?!) earning a kool 1M for who knows what, Krissy-poo was home in NYC getting veeerrry friendly with other women.
Life & Style is reporting that Kris was seen leaving 1Oak Nightclub holding hands with a mystery blonde who is apparently a friend of his sister and instead of meeting Kim at the airport following her six-day trip, he grabbed lunch with his buddies. Husband of the year!
Another insider reports that while Kim was working in Miami last month, Kris was seen getting lap dances from two women in a different club. While the mommy’s kat’s away, the mouse will play!
“Kris takes other girls’ cell phone numbers all the time. To be honest, I don’t think Kris truly loves Kim. And I don’t think he ever really did,” a source tells Radar Online about the marriage.
Even worse, Kim’s agent has reportedly dropped Kris from his client roster. Well, he does have even LESS talent than his wife! Along with dropping Kris from their roster, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment has also canceled plans for a Kris & Kim reality show. I’m … just… so… disappointed! “I don’t know when they’ll announce the split or why they got married in the first place but they are done,” an insider close to the couple tells Mail Online.
“Kim isn’t willing to change her life [for Kris],” Page Six reveals. “She works hard and cannot take any time out. And she doesn’t have time for his friends.” In fact, one reason their relationship is in trouble is they spend no alone time together. “They haven’t had any time to settle in together. They have an army of people around them all the time,” a source explains. “It’s hard for them to be alone and have quality time together,” the source elaborates, claiming Kim “films until midnight every night,” for Kourtney & Kim Take New York (seriously who watches that show?!)!
In fact, supposedly the implosion of their barely existent marriage is a plot line for the upcoming season. Which makes me wonder – is their made for TV marriage really in trouble or is the couple just trying to generate ratings?
Filming for the show seems to be a major hurdle in their relationship and part of the discontent stems from Kim’s homesickness for LA. “I’m kind of homesick,” Kim told Life & Style. “So I need to go back to LA for a little bit.” Wait didn’t she promise to move anywhere for her hubby’s career?! “Kim’s mapping out 2012, including holidays, and Kris isn’t a part of it. Any itineraries for the future don’t include Kris very much. That’s not a good sign,” says a source.
While sources say things are so bad Kris was spotted – sans wedding ring – moving boxes out of their NYC residence after Kim kicked him out, Kim denies the allegations. Multiple sources tell TMZ that filming for Kourtney & Kim has finished and the couple is simply moving back to LA together. As for the missing wedding ring – Kris “isn’t a fan of jewelry.”
Who knows what to believe? I guess, we’ll wait for the next round of tabloid reports.

WHAT DO YOU THINK – A MARRIAGE IN TROUBLE OR A PUBLICITY STUNT? DO YOU THINK KIM AND KRIS WILL MAKE IT IN THE LONG RUN?
