Kim Kardashian Deserves to Be Sued for Her Big Sham Marriage


Kim Kardashian and Kris HumphriesThough I suspected, predicted, and braced myself for the fact that the sham marriage of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries would eventually end in divorce, the actual official news yesterday that it was happening just 72 days after they wed felt like a big slap in the face. Comedian Rob Delaney feels the same way and says he's going to slap Kim Kardashian with a big fat lawsuit. Right on, Rob!

On Vice, he states his intention to stop her divorce from Kris Humphries. "I am also suing Ryan Seacrest, E! Entertainment Television, and Comcast for promoting their sham marriage, bilking advertisers, and polluting the airwaves of America and every other nation unfortunate enough to be subject to the disease of Kardashia."

Though his reasoning is mostly humorous and an unabashed attack on the entire Kardashian family, as a fan (or perhaps former fan?) of the shows, I have to say he hits on some real truths. We've all clearly been duped, and the Kardashians don't even have the courtesy to pretend we weren't. I say a class action lawsuit is in order. What say you?

Sure, there have been plenty of short marriages in Hollywood -- Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman (9 days); Mario Lopez and Ali Landry (2 weeks); Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito (4 months); and on and on and on. But the difference is they didn't blatantly take us along for the ride, play with our emotions, then make us look even more like idiots than we already do for watching them. Bad decisions are bad decisions, but this is just wrong, especially when the public has done nothing but embrace the Kardashian name and boost them along their way to billionaire status.

Delaney insists he's serious about his lawsuit. As he states:

... this is not a joke. I AM suing Kim Kardashian and the others mentioned above. It is alleged that Kim Kardashian was paid $18 million to participate in her own wedding. I feel like schools could use that money. Or health clinics in areas hit hardest by the recession. Or Pizza Hut. Or Bernie Madoff. Or my uncle Mitchell, who is a convicted sex offender making a living selling Percocet to the elderly in Rhode Island.

Time will tell if he actually moves forward with his threat, but I for one hope he does. A lawsuit is the least of things she should be slapped with if she can't at least stick it out for awhile and try. She owes it to her fans if nothing else. In Delaney's eloquent words:

... if you won’t [stay married], I will sue you. Because when you wrap your marriage vows around a cubic zirconia encrusted baseball bat and beat us about the head and face with them, you can stay the f*ck married for more than 20 minutes, you sexy monster. I’ll see you in court.

Do you think a lawsuit against Kim Kardashian is in order?

She did it for the paycheck! I do think E, the advertisers, etc. Whoever paid for the wedding might have a lawsuit. To me it was obviously nothing but a paycheck and publicity. I was never a big fan of the Kardashians, this is just another reason not to be. Now, can we PLEASE stop making this fame whore a topic!s

A lawsuit isn't necessary. They want fame and money and will do just about anything to get it (obviously). I for one was so turned off by their wedding special and how so far out of touch from reality that family seemed (not that I expected much else), that I refuse to watch another episode or purchase any items backed by them and this divorce just makes my decision that much easier. If we don't watch - they don't get paid.

I just found out who they were yesterday. I'm sorry but why does anyone care so much?

I don't think a class action lawsuit via fans is the way to go, but I do think those who invested money into the marriage should be able to do so b/c this is just beyond a blatant slap in the face.


Why can't people spend their $ paying her to get married if they want to? If E! Or whoever paid her then that's their business, not Asshat Delaneys- he wasn't forced to watch so its none of his damn business. This type of lawsuit is ridiculous and takes time from our courts where there are legitimate cases of ppl breaking laws.

I'd like to see anyone PROVE it was a scam. Whether or not it was is irrelevant. PROVE it. Don't assume

I wasn't a giant fan before. I really felt that her and her family made a killing off of their last name fame. Sure, she's pretty, on the outside, however she showed just how ugly and shallow she is on the inside by her moves yesterday. Not to mention, she's a bold face liar! She said her "vows" meant everything to her, and she and her family love to say "bible" this and "bible" that. They don't know the truth if it slapped them in their pretty little faces! The only "vow" that she honors is to continue making money on her dead father's name, may he rest in peace..The bible says you can only serve one master, and hers is MONEY, NOT GOD!!

jagam... jagamama0710 As much as I can't stand the whole Kardashian family, this is ridiculous. 

"But the difference is they didn't blatantly take us along for the ride, play with our emotions, then make us look even more like idiots than we already do for watching them. "

Are you serious with this?

I think he should go thru with the lawsuit!...The Kardashians have gotten out of hand. They think just because they have celebrity statis they can do what evr they want no matter who gets hurt as long as it's not them!...They would sell S**T! if they could profit!....Have they no morals????......I'm so tired of people making $ off the poor and thinking it's ok....The $ she made from the FAKE wedding could and should be donated!!!!

I knew it was a money making; for the ratings marriage - I did not watch it and never do. When I get home from work if my teen-ager is watching that program - I chang it. I hope this FAKE marriage ruins their ratings and that show goes the way of Kate + 8 and all the rest of those types.
