Earlier last week, news of Kim Kardashian’s divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries has gave the media (all media) fuel to feed to the ever expanding Kardashian social bonfire. The Kardashian’s are infamous for their “Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s” reality cable show where they parade around spending money in almost every ridiculous way possible.
The family has been very public in their interactions with the media and probably the most famous of the clan, Kim Kardashian, has even had a sex tape released showing her “sexcapade” with Rapper Ray Jay. Kim’s relationships with a different number of professional athletes have made her skyrocket to fame for which she has soaked up and thrived upon the past few years. Recently however, with her divorce from Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage she and the rest of the Kardashian Clan have caved in declining to elaborate further on the short-lived wedding fiasco.
Media coverage of the precursor to the wedding was a pretentious 4 hour fairytale that only the Kardashian’s could pull off which oddly enough came to be called “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding”. The Kardashian’s made this a wedding of epic proportions to then keep talk of the aftermath (72 day divorce) very “hush hush”. Although “mum” has been the word regarding all apects of this catastrophic marriage, there has been much speculation as to why the divorce took place. Much of it having to do with Kris’ interest in his marriage to Kim and the financial gain he would acquire only by being married to such a high profile woman. This meaning that there will most likely be a tell-all book later revealed by an “unknown but credible” source which unravels the details of the couple’s split.
The whole premise of the Kardashian show is to live in the public and have their lives on display for the world to gawk at. The Kardashian’s have lived this overly public life for some time sharing their deepest emotions with the world. Does this now mean that they should remain candid about the Kardashian/Humphries short lived marriage and air out their filthy laundry, or should they now respect their boundaries and let it be? My guess is the fans will continue to become further immersed in this scandalous marriage and make the pay-out for the tell-all story that much more valuable.
