Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Getting Divorced? Not Surprising.

If you've been reading my commentary on the obviously fake Kim Kardashian / Kris Humphries relationship, you know that the Kardashian/Humphries divorce is not a surprise to me.

From the whirlwind relationship to the made for TV wedding, the Kim Kardashian / Kris Humphries marriage screamed "Totally fake!" and "Publicity Stunt!" like no other. Kim and Kris made tons of money off of their totally free wedding, scored a free honeymoon and earned some time in the spotlight. Plus, there there were so many obvious signs that this was fake:
- News sources stated that Kris wanted creative input to the Kardashian shows, and that was denied by Kris Jenner and crew.
- Kris said he wants a real marriage, not a marriage in the limelight. You know, after marrying a famewhoring Kardashian.
- Khloe made a big deal in the media about hating the new Kris in the family.

Does this not seem at all suspiciously staged to any of you?

My theory on what happened is that Kris was 'cast' as Kim's boyfriend and the whole thing was a publicity stunt to the Kardashians. Unfortunately, Kris (who honestly doesn't seem to be terribly intelligent) probably started to fall for Kim and her fake charm. Kim roped him in, cashed in on the added fame from her wedding after six months of courtship, and then made it clear that she wants nothing to do with him. The pair were barely seen together after their not-at-all-staged (sarcasm) honeymoon, after all.

Now, the marriage is over after only 72 days, and Kim is the one filing for divorce. So for those who feel bad for her, I think it might be worth reevaluating the decisions she made in the first place.

As for the rumors that Kris Humphries is a conceited jerk, well, it's definitely possible. But I'm sure Kim's not exactly humble herself. And sister Kourtney Kardashian is still with Scott Disick, so I'm sure Kris looks like an angel compared to him.

Wow! Those are some really good points you made. I don't really follow the Kardashians so you mentioned a lot of things I did not know about their relationship. I feel bad for Kris if he was filled into thinking this was a real relationship. Hopefully he won't fall for anything like that again in the future.
