Olivia Wilde: Leave Kim Kardashian Alone

First Posted: 11/17/11 11:27 AM ET   Updated: 11/17/11 11:27 AM ET

It's not the popular opinion these days, but someone who isn't related to Kim Kardashian is finally standing up for her.

Actress Olivia Wilde, who recently finalized her own divorce from Tao Ruspoli, told Page Six at an after-party at the Standard Hotel, "I empathize. It's not easy. It's the hardest thing in the world. People judge you because divorce is seen as failure. [Kim] took a risk. No one should be attacking her. Our attention should be focused on things that are truly scandalous."

Wilde might be the first celeb to defend Kim's decision to file for divorce from Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage. So far only Kim's immediate family has stood up for her.

In the days following the divorce announcement, Kim's sister Khloe told reporters in Australia, "I want to stand up and say to everyone, 'That's not true,' and yell at people, but I can't do that. No matter what, whether you're at your best, you're always going to have critics saying something."

Other celebrities haven't been quite as understanding and taken the opportunity to mock Kim:

At a performance at the iHeartRadio Live concert at P.C. Richard & Son Theater in New York, Canadian singer Michael Buble announced to the audience, "Ladies and gentleman, I have a very special guest. Please welcome Kim Kardashian [to the stage]."

The audience gasped but Buble revealed he was kidding adding, "Nah, just f**king with you! That bitch isn't coming on my stage."

Buble dedicated his next song, a cover of Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" to Kris Humphries and made another joke about the couple who filed for divorce after 72 days of marriage.

"She hurt him, she hurt him! I wish she had hurt me!" he joked.
