I was sitting in my family room this morning when the news hit:
LOS ANGELES – Kim Kardashian will file for divorce from husband Kris Humphries Monday, after less than three months of marriage.
Though their marital bliss was short-lived, the reality star is not seeking an annulment and will list “irreconcilable differences” as the cause, TMZ reported.
“Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins,” Ryan Seacrest tweeted in response to the report.
Kardashian, 31, married the NBA player, 26, at a star-studded Hollywood ceremony August 20.
As reported earlier, Kim Kardashian has decided to file for divorce after 10 weeks of marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries. Here is the statement she released on her decision:
“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.”
Pretty wild, yes? I mean we, mere mortals, planned our wedding to the one we loved, and actually thought about it. We stayed married for more than an instant. We didn’t run off after a few weeks because “Things didn’t work out”! I admit I was married before, but that marriage lasted 11 years! Not 72 days like Ms. Kardashians!
The really hilarious thing is, my wedding to my current Hubby, was a lovely one. I spent all of $5000.00 on my gown, the gowns for my daughter, and my step-daughter, the invitations, music at the reception, a photographer, all the food, and an open bar! Granted that was 23 years ago, but….even with inflation it wouldn’t add up to all that Ms. Kardashian spent (rumored to be approximately 10 million dollars!). Oh yes, and I took my husbands name.
As I get older I seem to find myself having less patience for Hollywood and all the crap that comes out of there. It seems like no one stays married, that people have make believe marriages and then delight in saying, oh yeah, it was just for publicity.
I like real people. Not reality show types. I mean real people like my neighbors. I suppose that was why I always enjoyed “All My Children”. I knew it wasn’t real, and so it was sort of a guilty pleasure. None of these people ever presented to me a 72 day marriage in their real life.
But it seems that the networks want us to swallow these Kardashian types. Ms. Kardashian is, after all, a wealthy woman! She is worth close to 35 million dollars! And E television paid her dearly for their 2 part coverage of her wedding.
For me, I will not watch that bologna!
