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.

Upon discovering that Kim Kardashian’s 72 day marriage to Kris Humphries was ending, our first concern was the incredible fortune they amassed during their brief union . There’s the $17.9 million they raked in for their televised, fairy tale extravaganza, the $2.5 million People allegedly shilled out for exclusive photo rights, and, of course, their Gearys Beverly Hills registry, which included a $7,850 vase and a $730 ice bucket, to name a few of the ridiculous items. We don’t know the exact dollar amount they made off with … but it was a lot. (And apparently Kim has sold her divorce story to People for an as yet undisclosed sum!) After the jump, our suggestions for what the couple should do with their spoils. We’re sure their lawyers will disagree. Keep reading »
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]

NOTE: We had to take the photo in question down (image rights issue) but you can see it here and continue to discuss. Sowwy!
Kim Kardashian isn’t known for covering up, so this photograph of her trying on a burqa in Dubai is … weird … to say the least. There’s at least one other photo of Kim and her mom Kris Jenner walking down a Dubai street while Kris is wearing a veil, which I assume was her trying to be respectful of Muslim customs. (However, Dubai is a very modern city and other women in the photograph, including Kim, aren’t veiled.) Yet I feel sort of uncomfortable about Kim trying on a burqa — I assume “for fun” — when the face-covering veil is forced on women in other parts of the world, like Afghanistan. Maybe I’m overthinking this, though. What do you think? [Celebuzz] Keep reading »
I don’t know much about weddings, but one thing I do know, to quote Anthony, Charlotte’s main gay on “Sex and the City,” is that when it comes to the dress, “you go Wang.” And if anyone is going to have the best of the best on their wedding day, it’s Kim Kardashian. When the reality TV star married Kris Humphries last month, she wore not one, not two, but three Vera Wang gowns. That’s the strapless ball gown she wore for the ceremony, above, and then she changed into two other dresses (also ivory) over the course of the night. You’ll be able to get a much closer look at their wedding during E!’s “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” special this Sunday at 8 p.m. and Monday at 9 p.m.
Until then, click through this slideshow of a bunch of famous brides who wore Wang to walk down the aisle. Keep reading »
Nope, that’s not a Photoshopped baby; Kim Kardashian’s nephew Mason crawled into her bag on his own. Good to know Goyard bags can handle such precious cargo, I guess? [Twitter]
UPDATE: Post title has been changed — thanks to those commenters who pointed out this photo was taken on a family vacation, not at fashion week! Keep reading »
This may just be the most genius invention of all time. A video producer named Matt Richardson has created a remote control that automatically mutes out the voice of specific celebrities, as well as instances where someone else might be talking about them. Why? Because there is always a celebrity he can’t stand to hear about. “A while ago it was Charlie Sheen. And then it was Sarah Palin. And then it was Donald Trump. And after a while I realized there’s sort of always someone who I don’t really want to hear about,” Richardson explained. He says the first time he got it to work, “I was in silent bliss for that 30 seconds I didn’t have to hear about Kim Kardashian.” Apparently, Snooki ranks highly for him now.
So how does this work? Keep reading »
