Since Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries announced they were divorcing after just 72 days of marriage, the world's wrath has shown no signs of abating. Kim is being mocked everywhere from SNL to the CMA Awards, and it appears even her family isn't on her side. According to reports, Khloe Kardashian is appalled by her actions.
In Touch magazine says that since the split, it's pretty much Kim and Kris Jenner against the rest of the family. The magazine claims Khloe is "seething" over Kim becoming a "fame-addicted, money-hungry monster," and that the sisters recently got into a big fight in a bathroom while in Australia.
A source told the magazine, "Khloe was mad because Kim was trying to look sad [about her divorce]. She was telling Kim that people would see right through it, and Kim was only making things worse."
Maybe that's the tough love Kim needs, but I hope she's also getting support from someone besides her mom, who likely led her into the mess in the first place. I hope that even if Khloe is angry with her, she's also there for her too in some ways.
In my heart I believe the marriage was orchestrated for publicity, especially after reports from her former publicist about the many other staged events in her life. But it's her life, and while you'd like to hope she had more respect for loyal fans than to dupe them, the fact is -- no one had to watch. We wanted to believe it was real, but we always knew that to some degree, it wasn't. I think part of the anger comes from our feeling stupid about the whole thing. And Khloe was there standing up for Kim at the big wedding. If she knew it was a sham and did that, then she has some blame to bear too.
Plus, what if it really was a marriage of love, and that Kim was just caught up in the whole whirlwind of a wedding? She wouldn't be the first bride to do so. Matters of the heart more than any other deserve a little benefit of the doubt, because sometimes we just can't explain why we do what we do. And didn't we have fun watching anyway?
Now more than ever Kim needs a friend, even if that friend doesn't necessarily agree with what she did. She needs someone to listen to her talk about why she is where she is and what mistakes she made in the whole thing. And MOST importantly she needs someone to give her some good advice about where she's going -- someone that's NOT Kris Jenner.
Do you feel sorry for Kim Kardashian, or do you think she's getting everything she deserves?
