I Do…I Don’t

I was sitting in my family room this morning when the news hit:

LOS ANGELESKim 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!

  1. With you 100%. Think how many hungry people that wasted 10million could have fed, or shoes for children, glasses for those who cannot afford them. And the list goes on.

  2. Amen, Sister, Amen!! This kind of confirms the statement that “this world is going to hell in a handbasket!” … the sacred things of life are being taken so lightly: marriage, children (abortion), any authority, and the wisdom of our elders that is so blatantly disregarded. 🙁 I just read a blurb about 12 year olds who hit their mother w/ a shopping cart at Target somewhere, being taken by the police, laughing the whole time they are “arrested”. 🙁
    GIVE ME MORE STORIES of people who are doing WHAT IS RIGHT & GOOD, please!! I know there are some out there, somewhere!! 🙂
    PS Love your comments on my blog today – I’m with you on knowing FOR SURE there is HEAVEN, and it is SO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS UGLY OLD WORLD! (and my new favorite word of the day is SIMPLER. I want a SIMPLER life. I need a SIMPLER life.)

  3. Granted my first marriage only lasted 9 months…but that’s because he was a lying, cheating, drunk. But I married for love and my wedding to him cost under $30,000. When I married Don (and we’ve been together six years) we spent $6,000 and that included a week in the Poconos. You don’t need to spend a lot of money on one day to make a marriage last.

  4. With you 100%!!
    This Lady is just crazy.
    I took M’s name as well, but to be honest I had to really think about it and it was not an easy decision.
    (Still like my old name best ;-))

  5. Ugh. I am with you. This is just ridiculous… and to say gays ruin the institution of marriage! Ha! Look at those Hollywood people who marry over and over and over just for the fun of it.
