In a last ditch effort to make their marriage seem like it was a real thing, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are seeking counseling. Sources say their union is “up in the air” after Kim flew to Minnesota to meet with Kris’ pastor, Joel Johnson. After a four-hour come-to-Jesus session (literally), they admitted that there is a lot wrong with their relationship. How brave of them, but aren’t these the kind of counseling sessions that usually take place before the wedding? Either way, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall, if, in fact, this session actually happened. We won’t be holding our breath for a reconciliation. If Kim and Kris are representative of the rest of celebrity couples who’ve sought counseling, this is just the beginning of the end for them. Or the end of the end, considering they’ve already split.

I definitely don’t consider myself an expert on marriage, but by virtue of being a semi-expert on celebrity marriages — with an emphasis in “rumors surrounding the cause of their demise” — I have learned some valuable lessons about matrimony. For example, part of figuring out your compatibility in the long-term with your potential spouse requires asking a few simple but crucial questions. Questions these seven celeb brides failed to ask. Don’t make the same mistake!
Well, the love story of Kim Kardashian and, uh, that one guy whose name we barely bothered to remember, has come to a conclusion. Kardashian is filing for divorce, allegedly because her basketball playing husband, Kris Humphries, wanted to live in Minnesota, while she, of course, cannot imagine leaving the paparazzi-filled streets of Hollywood. Kardashian released a statement, saying:
After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.
Indeed, it probably wasn’t in the plan to end their marriage quite this soon, but Kim luckily has nearly $18 million in crisp dollar bills she made off the wedding to mop up her tears. (Unless, of course, she actually decides to follow any of our suggestions and donates her bounty to a good cause.)
Married for only 72 days, Kim’s (second!) marriage joins a long line of short celeb marriages. Keep clicking to see some of the other speedy celebrity marriages that met an early demise.

UPDATE: Ryan Seacrest, who is a producer on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” (conveeeeeeniently), confirms that Kim is filing for divorce and will be giving him a statement shortly.
In a move that should come as a surprise to no one, Kim Kardashian is allegedly filing for divorce from her husband Kris Humphries — after only 72 days of marriage. Kim and Kris, whose alliterative names should have surely kept them together, seem to have lost their burgeoning passion and were spotted fighting over the weekend. Kim has already allegedly hired a new PR person to handle the flak.
So, what could have torn these two lovebirds apart? Was it the height difference? Or was it the rumor that Kris wasn’t actually Kim’s first choice to play her husband/love interest/mancessory on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”? It’s a sad day when a loveless $10 million wedding can’t even keep a faux couple together. [TMZ]
“[George Clooney was] the person who valued my feminine side the most. … He has been a special for me, and very important, just as a father would be. … Between us there was more of a father-daughter relationship. I was unable to clarify this up ’til now.”
– Elisabetta Canalis talks about her relationship with George Clooney in a forthcoming book “about love” written by an Italian journalist. People has some excerpts from the book, including the interesting nugget quoted above. I’m not quite sure I understand. So, Elisabetta and George’s relationship was more paternalistic than romantic? Or both? I hope they were able to put aside the father-daughter stuff during sex because eww.
Anyway, find out what Elisabetta had to say about rumors that she and George broke up because she wanted kids and marriage, after the jump… Keep reading »
“Rumor number one: I am not planning to get married any time soon. I’ve been married once, and I don’t know if I’ll get married again. But I can tell you that as of this very moment, I have no plan to get married. Got that? And rumor Number two: no, we’re not pregnant. It’s just I quit smoking, so I’ve gained a couple of pounds.”
– Jennifer Aniston clears a few things up when it comes to rumors that she is planning on tying the knot with boyfriend Justin Theroux and having his child. Phew. Glad we got that ironed out. Can I go back to wondering how many months along extremely obviously totally pregnant Jessica Simpson is? [People] Keep reading »
This is what Courtney Stodden, World’s Greatest Teen Bride, wore to a pumpkin patch in Los Angeles this weekend. In between fondling squash, she and old-as-f**k husband, Doug Hutchison, fondled each other to the point where other patch-goers complained and the couple was given the boot. Never one to let anything ruin her super sexy sensual good mood, Stodden later tweeted, “Have a beautifully blessed Sunday! :) ‘Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.’ John 7:24.” Which is I guess her way of saying the Big Guy approved of white go-go boots?
