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 -
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?
A new report has experts and physicians calling QuickTrim “dangerous and ineffective”! Both Kim and Khloe endorse the product and have been featured in its ads. In fact, during an episode of Khloe & Lamar, pimpmomager Kris Jenner was heard yelling at Khloe that she would lose the endorsement for being too fat! Kim has claimed to have lost around 15lbs using the supplements and credited the products for helping her lose weight before her made-for-TV wedding.
Maybe Khloe knew something the rest of us didn’t as the report claims QuickTrim is hazardous to your health! “I don’t think anyone should take these products,” Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman warns in an interview for US News & World Report.
Dr. Fugh-Berman, a physician and associate professor at Georgetown University Medical Center, along with registered dietitian Keri Gans decided to review three QuickTrim products and found that these supplements “contain powerful stimulants, laxatives, and diuretics that could cause abdominal pains, cramping and even kidney failure.”
Additionally they discovered that the QuickTrim products contained “large amounts of caffeine” which the company is not disclosing! “It irritates me that they’re not saying how much caffeine is in these pills,” Dr. Fugh-Berman relayed. “Too much caffeine can make you jittery and increase your blood pressure and pulse.”
“If you pop a couple of these pills with your Starbucks coffee, that’s not good; you could get caffeine poisoning, which can cause heart arrhythmias,” she cautions.
Registered dietitian Heather Mangeiri, a spokesman for the American Dietetic Association also echos those warnings and calls the pills ineffective! “My suggestion is to leave them on the shelf,” she advises.”Dietary supplements like these aren’t regulated by the [Food and Drug Administration], and many of the ingredients haven’t been shown to be effective.”
No statements have been made from QuickTrim or the Kardashian family regarding these findings.
In other Kardashian overdose news – the family is opening a new boutique. Yes – another one. “We are so excited to announce that our lifestyle boutique, Kardashian Khaos, is opening on November 1 in The Mirage, Las Vegas!!” Kim announced on her website this week. I love the name – sooo original!
“The store will feature so many amazing products including all the products that we own, represent, market and endorse, and some exclusive Las Vegas souvenir items,” Kim enthuses. Do you think they’ll be selling QuickTrim there? Including a very special product – sit down for this – a Kardashian TATTOO!!!! Oh NO!
“Never in my life did I think I would be made into a temporary tattoo,” desperate for attention and money-hungry mom, Kris wrote on her blog this week. “But never say never, right?! LOL.”
The Kardashians aren’t stopping there either – the family filed multiple U.S. Patent and Trademark documents for “Kardashian Kollection Home,” which may include “towels, bath mats, bedding as well as kitchen utensils, picture frames, and beer mugs.” Yes – because they have such stellar decorating tastes we all want our homes to look that tacky great.

THOUGHTS ON THE DANGEROUS FINDINGS RELATED TO QUICKTRIM PRODUCTS? DO YOU BELIEVE THE KARDASHIANS KNEW THE PRODUCTS WERE DANGEROUS? ARE YOU AS SHOCKED AS I AM THAT A KARDASHIAN TEMPORARY TATTOO WILL BE ON THE MARKET SOON?
In today’s OMG news, the Kardashian family is apparently shocked that the leader of the free world doesn’t consider them good role models!
Yes, TMZ is reporting today that days after the first lady Michelle Obama revealed her husband President Obama isn’t a fan of his daughters watching the E! show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the family is now telling friends they were completely blindsided by that info!
How silly of the Prez not to consider sex-tape Kimmie and the cra-cra fam a positive influence for his kids! Oh the outrage!
According to TMZ, the Kardashians feel President Obama has them all pegged wrong. Umm no he doesn’t! It all started with an interview Michelle did with iVillage during which she stated, “Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians — when they watch that stuff — he doesn’t like that as much.”
The Kardashians were reportedly “surprised” by the news due to the fact that the Prez personally told Khloe Kardashianlast year that he thought the show was a “great show” when they met. Oh Khloe, it’s called being polite! See Khloe was at the white house last year due to the fact that her husband/Lakers player Lamar Odom was invited to celebrate his 2010 NBA Finals victory.
The Kardashian family is however insisting they believe Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, could actually learn a lot from their show because it features girls in real-life situations facing real-life problems such as “health, relationships, how to turn your sex tape into mega millions and fame, get knocked up before marriage and just be an all around waste of space to society!”
Okay perhaps I added in those last three! Below is a photo of Khloe meeting President Obama last year.
TELL US – ARE THE KARDASHIANS DELUSIONAL OR VERY DELUSIONAL? WHO DO YOU MAKE OF THEIR RESPONSE?
