Oh The Scandal…

Everyone is up in arms over Kim Kardashian’s divorce.  I should really preface this post by saying I am not a relationship expert, nor have I ever met Kim K in person.  Therefore, this is all pure speculation. 

I have chosen to believe that when you know, you know and hey Khloe got married after a month and still loves her insanely tall husband two years later.  You never know.  Being famous seems to increase tension within relationships.  Especially relationships actually played out on television.  I love myself a fairy tale, but getting married in front of 400 people sounds more like a nightmare.  Nothing seems farther from intimate or romantic.  It’s like getting married in Madison Square Garden during the playoffs (assuming the Knicks ever participate in the playoffs again).  Right before you walk down the aisle some producer is asking you intrusive questions with a camera in your face as you try not to vomit.  Why? 

Why would you do that to yourself?  One thing I actually admire about Kim K is how open she is to love.  It’s a blessing and a curse.  She dated someone for six months long distance (I could be off here but just go with it), became engaged and got married three months later.  They met, married, and divorced in less than a year.  That’s a lot of stuff happening in a short amount of time.  It’s so easy to get caught up in being famous.  I’m assuming.  But once the honeymoon is over (pun intended) you’re stuck living with someone you haven’t known for all that long.  And people are asking you how things are going.  Reporters.  Paparazzi.  Sounds awful, right?

Do I think the wedding was so gaudy it made me ill?  Absolutely.  Do I think she should return all the gifts?  Of course.  Do I think it’s wrong to get divorced so quickly?  No.  The girl is admitting she made a HUGE mistake.  A very public mistake.  I believe in giving credit when credit is due, and this shit is embarrassing.  She wrote an explanation on her blog to let her “fans” know what was going on.  This girl lives her life so publicly that she actually thought she owed us something!  Think about that.  It is no one business!  Including mine.  I’m not saying the Kardashians are saints.  In fact, a lot of what they do I find repulsive, but I will say Kim appears to be honest.  She made a mistake.  A costly one.  In the end she’s doing everyone a favor (including the public and Kris Humphries). 

I realize I just wrote about Kim Kardashian for several paragraphs.  Please forgive me.
