Kim Kardashian Filing For Divorce
After 72 days of marriage, an E! wedding special that seemed to go even longer and nonstop rumors of unhappiness, the rumors have turned out to be true: Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries. TMZ has the news that Kardashian plans to file for the split later today, citing "irreconcilable differences" with the guy she married in a lavish ceremony on August 20. They spent $20 million on that wedding. They are now getting divorced. The mind boggles.
If you believe in Hollywood weddings ending in forever after, especially when every moment of them is documented for reality TV, then you're probably the sucker born every minute that P.T. Barnum got so excited about. But it only took garden variety skepticism to see trouble for Kardashian-- even back in September she was making headlines for taking off her engagement ring. If anything, I expect the speculation to begin that the wedding only happened in the first place for the sake of headlines. What better way, really, than to guarantee your constant spot in the tabloids than feverish planning of a ridiculously expensive wedding? The only thing better is an acrimonious divorce, which I'm sure we'll be hearing plenty about in the coming months. Then she'll find another willing suitor and the cycle will start all over again.
Kardashian has hired divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who represented Britney Spears, Ryan Reynolds, Angelina Jolie and other high-profile celebrity divorcees. Vote in our poll below and let us know if you saw this split coming.
