The Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries marriage seems even more like a pre-planned match between a clueless Kris and a ratings-savvy Kim -- here's why.
Reason #1:Kim never spends any time wrapped up in normal post-bride obsessions. Any woman who's been married knows that your first weeks of married life are consumed with post-wedding follow-ups. Brides stress over the thank you notes for their wedding gifts. They fuss over the wedding photos and making an album. They can hardly wait to see the wedding videos -- the personal ones, not just their upcoming wedding special.
Kim NEVER does ANY of this. She NEVER mentions her gifts. Never seems to have even seen what her gifts were. NEVER discusses her three wedding dresses and how to take care of them for posterity's sake. All brides freak out about this i.e. taking care of their beloved wedding gown. Not Kim! It's as if the $10 million dream wedding NEVER occurred, aside from being referenced as a "big waste of time and money" that Kim admits that she got "all these people to come to " in last night, Jan. 29th's finale of KKTNY. Kim and Kris NEVER reminisce about their wedding -- something every newlywed woman does with her husband.
Reason #2: Kim Kardashian was already dissing and ignoring her sister-in-law Kaela Humphries by Sept. 13 -- less than a month after the Aug. 20 wedding.
What new bride disses her sister-in-law, especially one she supposedly likes, less than a month after her wedding? Kaela, a model, was in NYC to walk in the Richie Rich runway show on Sept. 13 and Kris Humphries attended without Kim. In fact, there were three empty seats in the front row for Kim, Kourtney and Scott -- all no-shows. In the Jan. 22 episode of KKTNY, Kim claims that Kris Humphries never told her that Kaela was coming to NYC -- hard to believe -- and then, that she didn't want to see Kaela because she is "having so many issues with Kris," and would find it hard to "put on a happy face."
This is less than a month after the wedding and almost a full month before Kim and Kris's wedding special aired on Oct. 9 and 10.
So Kim was, according to the dates, already having major marital problems a little over two weeks after a supposedly fabulous honeymoon.
Reason #3: Kim was already contacting medium John Edwards to reach out to her late father for comfort on her marriage to Kris Humphries just a month after the marriage.
If we follow the dates in the KKTNY show, then Kim was already in such distress over her marriage that she actually contacted her late father through medium John Edwards, on Sept. 30 -- eight yearstto the day after Robert Kardashian died. This was also just over a month after the wedding and actually almost two weeks before Kim went to Dubai and told her mother Kris Jenner that she wasn't happy in her marriage around Oct. 16.
Kim confesses in the Jan. 22 episode that she's been going through a lot "emotionally and mentally" and she says she'll "find comfort in connecting to my dad again." She also decides not to tell her new husband that she's going to do it. "It makes me not want to talk to him about it," she said.
So again -- she's miserable in her marriage just six weeks after the wedding and keeping secrets from Kris about talking to a medium.
Would you hide anything major from the man you loved? Wouldn't you be so excited to discuss contacting your late father? Is this not bizarre behavior from a newlywed?
Reason #4: Kim never EVER wanted to spend time with Kris Humphries! She avoided him from almost the moment they arrived in NYC -- Aug. 29 -- nine days after their wedding!
Kim appears happy with Kris for only the first two episodes of KKTNY. At first she is so happy, she is ready to get pregnant. But by Sept. 13, she is avoiding her sister-in-law because she has so many issues with Kris.
In the meantime, Kim spends time with BFF Jonathan Cheban, jets with her sisters to appear at Sears on Sept. 18 in LA and tweets that she takes a trip to Mystic, Connecticut to be with Kourney and Mason on Sept. 29. Then she leaves for Dubai on Oct. 12 for four days.
All of this doesn't leave much time for Kris and in fact in the KKTNY finale she says they "never hang out."
That is NOT normal newlywed behavior. Newlyweds are obsessed with each other -- anyone who's ever been around one knows that. It's also nowhere near enough time to be having MAJOR issues with a new husband.
Kim somehow would have had to fall out of love with Kris with epic speed to be having divorce-ready issues two weeks after the honeymoon.
Since he didn't abuse her physically, verbally or emotionally or cheat -- what could he have done to provoke her speedy revulsion?
