Today we can all sigh a collective breath of relieve…Kim Kardashian has bitten the bullet, and is finally divorced. She lost her marital virginity today. Wait, what? Was she married to Kanye West already? (It doesn’t look like it, but nobody can put anything past Kim, who would like to keep our attention this whole week, so we will watch her program again Keeping up with the Kardashians.)Did she marry some random guy for the ratings? Of course this would never be confirmed, but it probably was the case. This was Kris Humphries. (Don’t know who that is? well he is that tall guy who plays professional basketball for the Brooklyn Nets. Somehow after her broke up with his girl friend he found himself in the arms of Kim Kardashian, and her family)
How did this epic love story come about? Were they so deeply, madly, in love? Probably not. Judge for yourself; they began dating in October 2010, got engaged in May 2011, and then married on a beautiful Summers day in August. The TV channel E! didn’t think twice to write a lengthy contract, and paying for the rights to broadcast the preparations for the lavish wedding, and for the joy to be present, in addition to filming during the wedding day. They turned it into a two-part TV special that was aired in early October 2011. However during that same month Kim filed for divorce after only 72 days of marriage.
She said the following about it: “My decision to end my marriage was such a risk to lose ratings and lose my fan base. I had to take that risk for my inner peace and to be happy with myself.”
Kris Humpries didn’t like that, and fired back with a request for an annulment on the grounds of fraud or a decree of legal separation. Finally in April 2013 bot parties came to an understanding, and reached a divorce settlement. Today Kim Kardashian can proudly say that she lost her ball with the chains, and her marital virginity as well.
What will be in store for Kimye? Will a wedding be next? Followed by another divorce? It certainly isn’t out of the question. Several sources have been hinting towards this, the wedding not the next divorce, but so far nobody has popped any questions related to “I do”. (Who knows what other questions got popped during the baby shower this past Sunday.) For now Kim should focus on her baby, baby proofing her house and what will happen on the next episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians. Are you planning on keeping up with them? Are you thinking about losing your marital virginity, like Kim Kardashian lost hers today? It might prove difficult for us mere mortals to keep up with her. However I am sure some of you would like to accept this challenge. Because in true Kim form: “I love when people underestimate me and then become pleasantly surprised.” Or in most Kardashian related situations, just surprised, and maybe a bit shocked.
