If you saw last week's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, like I embarrassingly did, you saw that there was a little scene, right before Kim's divorce was finalized, in which she mentioned to her mother that she wanted to have a Skype conversation with Kris Humphries. She mentioned something about wanting to talk to him and tell him that she did love him at one point, since he thinks their whole relationship was a giant lie.
When I was watching it, I thought to myself: "What a crock. She's only saying this for the sake of the cameras." But then I learned that Kim actually did reach out to Kris to talk via Skype -- but he wanted nothing to do with it.
According to a source: "Kris said no way. Kris turned down Kim’s offer because he didn’t want to appear on any of the Kardashian reality shows ever again. Kim and Kris haven’t spoken since the divorce was made final, and there are no plans to do so." Now, I get where Kris was coming from in never wanting to be on the show again, though I am legitimately surprised that Kim actually did reach out to him. I thought she was just saying that to make herself look good.
I've done my fair share of poking fun at Kim Kardashian and her ri-goddamn-diculous 72-day marriage, but maybe, maybe, she really did love Kris and the whole thing wasn't just a massive publicity stunt? I mean, haven't we all fallen in and out of love before? (True, most of us didn't then proceed to get married and televise the whole event, but you know what I'm saying, right?) Maybe Kim isn't a user and a mean, mean meanypants. Maybe she and Kris just weren't meant to be and that's all there is to it.
Or maybe, were she and Kris to talk on Skype, the Kardashians and E! would have made sure the entire thing was edited to make Kim look really good.
I guess that's always a possibility, too.
Do you think Kim's intentions were pure in trying to talk to Kris?
