As the world beats its collective breasts over Kim Kardashian's divorce, here's another hypothesis on why she would marry and leave a man so quickly: Kim always said she thought she'd be married with children by age 30. With her 31st birthday in late October, her (lucrative) life narrative required that she tie the knot.
Kim Kardashian is getting divorced after only 72 days. That's only two and a half months. Apparently celebrities are especially susceptible to being married for very short periods of time. Here are some that were so short they make Kim's look long, and some that lasted a bit longer and make Kim's look short, sort of like when she'd stand next to her future ex, Kris Humphries.
Kim Kardashian dressed up as Poison Ivy for Halloween and is divorcing her husband. Demi Moore dressed up as a divorcee. Lindsay Lohan is wearing an innocent nun's costume, Jessica Simpson is rocking an "immaculate conception" look, and Taylor Swift is going as a nude photo scandal. Monday's gossip doesn't know if it's a trick or a treat.
Brian Williams occasionally stops off at Late Night to slow jam the news with Jimmy Fallon. Since Rock Center, Williams' new primetime show, debuts on Monday and he wouldn't want anyone out there to forget to tune in, God forbid, he paid a visit to Fallon tonight to add some suave sexiness to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Watch them make the musical magic happen—and struggle to remember the name of Kim Kardashian's husband—above.
Tonight, E! brought us the conclusion of Kim's Fairytale Wedding, a four-hour special about Kim Kardashian's August nuptials to Kris Humphries. During last night's warm-up, the storyline revolved around everybody except Kim hating Kris (groom, not mom). But hey, at least his bride-to-be was on his side! Well, until tonight, that is, as you'll see in this four-minute highlight reel (with a bonus clip at the end featuring Kris Jenner seamlessly working sponsor LivingSocial into the mix). See you for the divorce special during May sweeps!
A month after we watched them get engaged, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were back on E! for two hours tonight in Part 1 of Kim's Fairtytale Wedding (the conclusion airs tomorrow). So what'd we learn? Namely, that the entire Kardashian family—and Khloe especially—hates Kim's husband-to-be, as you'll see in our highlight reel of the most dramatic moments.
So, like, Kim Kardashian and her husband Kris Humphries were totally on The Tonight Show this evening and, like, they were sitting there and stuff and then Jay Leno asked Kim about things Kris does that, like, annoy her and she was all "He totally barks like a dog!" So then Kris goes, "Nuh-uh" and she was all "Um, yeah," and then we all shook our heads in collective shame for allowing these people to become famous.
