Rumor has it that Kris Humphries is making arguments for an annulment of his 72-day marriage to Kim Kardasbhian, based on fraud. He allegedly feels he was duped into marrying Kim, who was merely looking for a donkey to carry her to higher ratings, not a husband for life and “once they finished taping, she didn’t need a groom anymore.”
Ouch. Well, it’s about time the he-said/she-said got nasty.
He’s also apparently really ticked off that people think he was complicit in some sort of publicity marriage. “He never would have flown in his childhood pastor” to preside over a sham marriage like that, according to vague and shadowy sources close to Humphries.
Kim herself admits publicly that she got caught up in the roller coaster of it all, and didn’t feel like she could put on the brakes while everything was going on. Now, that could be an admission that she went through with it for the wrong reasons, but it’s not quite the same as having entered into it with the premeditated intention of becoming engaged to and marrying someone—any jock will do—just for the sake of a television show. I know of many women who went through with a marriage they weren’t 100% sure about because—right or wrong—they were more worried about disappointing people by canceling the wedding than they were about the potential years of disappointment a bad marriage can bring.
Regardless of what happens, I think it’s pretty evident it’s going to get ugly—and that’s good for ratings, too.
