In case you've been living under a rock in another solar system and haven't heard, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries yesterday, after 72 days of wedded bliss. Today, the world has taken a moment to process this information, and has commenced spewing out reactions. Some thoughts:
Andrea Peyser, unsurprisingly, lashes out at the "fame whore for hire" for destroying the sanctity of marriage: "These two glassy-eyed ghouls, who announced their split, fittingly, on Halloween, don’t give a rat’s rump about rational notions of love, fidelity or the concept of forever...holy matrimony is nothing more than a cynical money-making enterprise." Peyser then accuses Kim of not having sex with Kris because there's "no profit in that," and wraps things up by possibly coming out of the closet.
The New York Times, meanwhile, takes the high road, pondering what will become of the business relationship between Kardashian and E! Basically, the network is going to keep re-running Kim's Fairytale Wedding for the time being because, hey, people just keep tuning in. And over at Jezebel, they're breaking down Kim's divorce by the numbers. Meanwhile, TMZ gives us the improbable story that Kim "agonized" over the decision.
But really, who cares whether it was a coolly calculated business decision? All we want to know is whether Kris is getting his $2 million
newborn kitten ring back.
