As the world already knows…Kim Kardashian filed for divorce today, 10/31/11. This morning, every media outlet and blog covered the “news”. As much as I love the Kardashian brand and the reality show…this news was just too much. I can’t believe that this is headline news when there is so much more going on in the world. In addition to the ridiculousness of how much this divorce is being covered, it also made me like Kim less and really lose respect for her. I am NOT hating…because everyone I know will tell you that I’ve been her biggest advocate all these years. I am just…really dissapointed in her and who she has become.
It seems like (and yes this is pre-judgement) that she wanted to get married so badly she overlooked a lot of really important factors. Factors that come out with dating longer or even TALKING about them sooner. On the show, I totally side with Khloe. She had every reason to doubt Kris’ intentions and was 100% in the right when she questioned the validity of this relationship. Kris was SOO incredibly difficult to get along with and I can’t believe how many red flags Kim overlooked.
If you’re fighting and not even talking at your own rehearsal dinner…something is up. If your sisters and brother hate him…something is up. If he’s super condescending to your family…something is up. If you guys fight about the way you live together…something is up. If you guys can’t even agree on minor LIFE styles…SOMETHING IS UP!!!
When I saw her wedding special…I was genuinely DISGUSTED. She was the biggest bridezilla and made it really clear that the day was about her, and nothing else. In comparison, when you watch Khloe’s wedding special~ there is so much love and happiness!! The entire wedding they are laughing and giggling the whole time with each other. At Kim’s? It was more about how Kim looked and what the details of the wedding were….very absent of love.
Again, I’m not surprised that they got divorced. I did think they would last longer than a year though…
I leave you all with a parody costume that Nick Lachey and Kelly Ripa did this morning:
Here’s more from The Blemish:
Execs at E! are no doubt holding urgent meetings to discuss a four hour divorce special.
Meanwhile, sources tell TMZ that one of the main problems in Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ marriage was that Kim did not want to move to Minnesota, where Kris is from, to settle down. She wanted to stay in LA because it would be best for her career. They never talked about this before their $10 million wedding because, well, $10 million!
And also, how does a fame whore go from LA to Minnesota. What did Kris think would happen. Kim would be ecstatic about the idea of layering herself up and trudging through snow with nary a photog in sight? I’m pretty sure it doesn’t take nine months of dating to figure out the answer to that is “hell no.” Either this is a bs excuse or Kris is a complete moron.
And here’s what JustJared had to say:
“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kim, 31, said (via E! News). “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.”
Kim’s sister Khloe also weighed in on the situation.
“Reading some these comments r so hurtful. Im grateful 4our fans who understand & r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything,” she wrote on her Twitter account. “Thank God for family. We are strong and we will only become closer! I love YOU”
