Recent comments by presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann have stirred up the discussion about gay marriage once again. While speaking to a group of high school…
File this under, “Shocker!” And I promise not to do this very often, but I’m covering this news for a reason.
TMZ, the famous celebrity stalker site is reporting that reality star Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from husband Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage. “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” executive producer Ryan Seacrest broke the news on Twitter.
“Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins.”
TMZ is suggesting the reason for divorce is because, “the couple were at odds over where to finally settle down. Humphries was reportedly passionate about settling down in his native Minnesota, and Kardashian simply wasn’t going for it.
If you’ve followed this couple for any length of time, and I’ve seen them on magazine stands and watched ten minutes of their show, which just happened to be the moment he wondered if he was making a mistake in marrying her, you’ll know it was reality television. I have no judgment for Kim or Kris. They are free to do as they please. I don’t know if they staged the marriage or not. It’s possible that it was, and its possible that their love was real.
But there is an ironic twist to this whole thing. If it was real, than Kim has lost that love. And she’s the one who really suffers, to the tune of a broken heart and 10 million dollars (the cost of the wedding). If it’s not, than Kim has turned the idea of marriage into something that she’s willing to make a mockery of. I hope she got what she wanted.
