kim kardashianHere's something for that Pulitzer application -- Kim Kardashian may have herpes. Oh yes, upon Kim's return to the States after a whirlwind tour of the Middle East, she was photographed makeup free at the Miami airport with a big old cold sore on her lip. Now, I know what you're thinking, you herpes expert, you: The cold-sore herp is different from the genital herp. We know. We get it. But still. You have to wonder (or not; or not wonder or care at all) if Kim gave Kris Humphries herpes and that's why they can't come to a divorce agreement. Does he want restitution for the virus?

Lest you think this is the most far-fetched thing you've ever heard, I'll remind you that Kris was actually sued by a sex-partner in 2010 for giving her herpes ...  and, you guessed it, 2010 was when Kris started seeing Kim.

So, allegedly Kris has the STD, and the timing is close enough to make it possible that he got it from Kim. Joy.

In case you're wondering where Kanye West comes into play, some tabloids are using Kim's cold sore as proof that Kanye was the one to infect her, letting Kris totally off the hook.

But for all we know, it could just be a cut or a scratch or an unfortunate line of zits above Kim's upper lip. That said, where there's herpes, Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries, Kanye West, and legal proceedings to be speculated upon, ears across the globe perk up.

To be honest, I sincerely hope no one has herpes. However, I guess I wouldn't mind if Kris Jenner was able to spin this 'derp disaster into a PR initiative that makes everyone feel sorry for Kim. I'd enjoy seeing that sort of black magic at work. It's so fun yet so unnerving.

Oh, and if we could get a Lifetime movie out of this, even better. Herpes Hell: The Story of Kim, Kris, and Kanye.

What do you think of all this?
