After 72 days of matrimony,The reality star Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from poorly casthusband Kris Humphries. TMZ already hasthe divorce papers, and posted them here. The newlyweds are seeking a traditional divorce due to “irreconcilable differences.”The announcement of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphies‘ impending divorce instantly became a hot topic around the Internet, sparking a slew of trending topics on Twitter as well as on Web search engines.
If Kim really made that widely reported$17.9 million from her wedding, then that boils down to $10,358.82 per hour, notesNew York Times investigative reporter Don Van Natta Jr.
(Yes, I could have done that calculation myself, but it’s not everyday you get to cite a New York Times investigative reporter in a story about Kim Kardashian’s love life. Hating on Kim Kardashian: the cause that unites us all.)
Now the real question is, will Kim Kardashian be remembered as a badass divorcee like Liz Taylor, or as a sad scam artist lunatic, like the runaway bride?
My personal litmus: If Kim Kardashian cries in her first post-divorce interview, I will hate her forever. Seriously, did you see that hourly pay rate? The only appropriate course of action here is gloating. Put on a coat made from the hides of 101 dalmation puppies and become a fabulous villainess, Kim Kardashian.
