Hollywood is famous for some extremely short-lived marriages. There was the Britney Spears married-in-Vegas fiasco; you may have forgotten J.Lo and Chris Judd’s seven month matrimony; but chances are you remember Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock’s five month dalliance! To this list (and there are many, many more celebs to be included) add Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Kim filed for divorce this morning, supposedly over differences of opinion on where the couple was planning to live. The Huffington Post reports that Humprhies wanted to set up shop in Minnesota while Kim wanted to be near her family in California. Did no one tell them to discuss this prior to their wedding? Which, by the way, took place a mere 72 days ago, on August 20th.
Their relationship – which started in December of last year – and wedding was highly publicized via Kim’s reality show, “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” but apparently during that time no one told the couple they should talk about crucial things like their ideas for the future.
Maybe it’s more than that, though – the couple has also been filming Kim’s new show: “Kourtney Â & Kim take New York.” And if we’ve learned anything from Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, it’s that new marriages and reality TV don’t mix. Which makes it difficult for someone who’s co-opted her fame using the platform of, well, reality TV.
