All good things must come to an end, and it seems that all fabricated, done-for-attention things must also come to an end. I'm sad to report that the fairy tale romance between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humpries has abruptly come to an end.
TMZ is reporting that Kardashian will file for divorce this morning. In what seemed like an eternity, but was actually only 72 days, the Kardashian-Humpries union has split. As Darren Rovell astutely noted, "The Kardashian/Humphries marriage lasted 72 days. Dennis Rodman & Carmen Electra were married twice as long (144 days)."
TMZ cites that she will not seek an annulment. It's a garden variety divorce, in which Kim cites "irreconcilable differences." The date of separation is listed as today, Oct. 31, 2011. Kim has hired divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, who has represented the likes of Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds, and Robyn Gibson, Mel's almost ex-wife. Kim has a prenup, so Humphries had better pray that the NBA starts up soon because there will be no more sugar mama.
I guess it's pretty pointless to watch the Kardashian Wedding Special that I had saved on my DVR. I hope E! at least gets a one-hour divorce special out of this sham. While this is devastating news for true romantics out there, this is stupendous news for athletes everywhere, who must be lining up at a chance at the newly single Kardashian and her rump. As for Kris Humphries, he can now go back to his black hole of obscurity, also know as being on the New Jersey Nets.
