Husbands On Deck: Reports Claim Kim And Kanye Are Getting Married Immediately After Birth Of Their Child
After finally reaching a divorce settlement with ex Kris Humphries last month, rumor has it that Kim Kardashian is ready to be wifed up again, and very soon. But first thing first–she has to have that baby.
According to Radar Online, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will allegedly be trying to tie the knot in Los Angeles soon after their little one comes into the world. The source, an individual close to the Kardashians, told Radar that Kanye has signed off on “all of the stipulations,” and is down with whichever wedding planner Kim wants. However, he’s not about to have the ceremony become some sort of front-of-the-magazine spectacle, as her marriage to Kris Humphries was. No selling of wedding photos to any magazines for the sake of just having some extra pocket change. But they claim that he reportedly wants to do a short film (no word on what it will specifically be about), and any profits made would go to one of Kim’s charities of choice.
Word is, if the divorce paperwork is finalized in time (the baby is reportedly supposed to arrive in June, after she originally told the media July to throw folks off), all should be good to go. But until then, Yeezy will stay in Paris, doing whatever he’s doing…while Kim jets all over the world to be with him. Ready to pop.
It would be nice if before they actually married, they were in the same place together for more than a few days…I’m just saying. But we’ll have to wait and see what happens won’t we?
The 536-Day Divorce Battle To End A 72-Day Marriage Is Over! Kim Kardashian And Kris Humphries Are (Almost) Officially Divorced
TMZ is reporting that reality star Kim Kardashian and Brooklyn Nets power forward, Kris Humphries have finally reached a settlement, bringing an end to their seemingly never-ending divorce. A judge dissolved the pairs marriage today during a court hearing.
While the terms of the settlement have not been officially announced, sources tell TMZ that Kris dropped annulment demands, is no longer claiming that Kim committed fraud by marrying him and he will not receive the requested $7 million that he’d originally asked for. He actually won’t be receiving any money from Kim for that matter. The insider also says that both parties will take care of their own attorney’s fees.
Official papers still need to be signed by both Kris and Kim, but the judge reportedly told Kim, ”Congratulations on your dissolution.” Kris and Kim even appear to be playing nice with one another. Kris would’ve had to pay a court penalty fee for pulling a no-show at a scheduled hearing last week pertaining to the case, but Kim kindly asked the courts to drop the penalty and they obliged, letting Kris off the hook. The divorce will be official once both parties sign off on necessary legal docs.
Thank God! Now Kim can stop crying about having Kanye’s baby while she’s someone else’s wife.
“I’m scared with the divorce, I’m probably going to have this baby being married to someone else,” Kim said during the Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ Season 8 supertrailer.
On a more serious note, we’re sure she’s happy to have that burden lifted.
Can you believe everything you read in the tabloids? Of course not. But how do you deny things people see in black and white and color on the TV set — or on your Twitter page? That’s what these stars have done, claiming what most people see as bad behavior is really just a misrepresentation. But are they fakin’ the front to save face? Or do we have it twisted sometimes? You be the judge.
“My whole image in my career is now affected by this. I wanted them to pull this clip because I don’t want to show this side of me.”
Maybe Erica and I saw two different shows. She tried to have the Kimbella fight scene pulled from the show. Maybe she forgot that this video of her whoopin’ on her baby daddy in the street was already circling the web. Let’s not even get on her antics now that she’s a real cast member.
We don’t have to tell you that just like most reality shows, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is a scripted and inorganic television program. But, one of the show’s producers Russell Jay recently revealed that the show is more fake than some of us even imagined, in a testimony on behalf of Kim Kardashian’s soon-to-be ex-husband Kris Humphries. Court documents retrieved by Life & Style reveal that Jay testified that many of the scenes from the show were scripted, reshot and edited by Kim to portray Kris in a negative light. He also exposed many other deceptive tactics used in the filming of the show.
One point that Jay highlighted was that Kris’s surprise proposal depicted on the show wasn’t actually a surprise at all. Jay says that Kim was well aware of the proposal beforehand and that she repeatedly filmed the scene until she nailed the perfect “surprised face.” It was also revealed that Kim would literally orchestrate scenes from scratch. For example, there was one scene where Kim is shown asking her mom and manager Kris Jenner for advice and confessing that she was having trouble in her marriage. According to Jay, the scene was filmed well after Kim filed for divorce in October of 2011.
There was also a scene where Kim blasted Kris for throwing a party in their hotel room while she was “out of town.” Jay testified that Kim was actually in the hotel the entire time and completely aware of everything that was going on. It seems that many of the crying scenes from the show weren’t even real. Jay says the Kardashians frequently used crying sticks to stimulate tears during filming.
While no one really needs to be told that Keeping Up With the Kardashians is a pile of bologna, Russell Jay’s deposition certainly helps Kris Humphries’s claim that Kim only married him for publicity reasons.
Kim and Kris are both schedule to appear in court on May 6th.

One Down, ‘Bout 8 Or 9 More To Go: Kim Kardashian Says She’s Done With Family Reality Show After Season 9
Kim Kardashian has been exposing her life to us without our permission since about 2006-2007, and since then, she’s been damn near everywhere, promoted almost everything, dated almost everybody (that was black) and made her living from being part of the overexposed. But everybody gets tired of participating in the rat race, whatever their particular rat race is, at one time or another, and according to Kim Kardashian, she’s getting tired of reality television.
According to US Weekly, even though she has signed on for season nine of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, after it’s over, she’s going to make an exit from reality television and focus on her growing family with Kanye West and the husband that won’t let go–Kris Humphries. She told DuJour magazine, “My boyfriend has taught me a lot about privacy. I’m ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything.”
Word?? You’re just now realizing the importance of keeping some things to yourself? Interesting…
“When you live your life so publicly, like on a reality show, people assume that they know every side of you already. But they always want more.”
But despite what the people want, Kardashian claims that she wants to back away slowly but surely from the show. It’s a part of her growing up and maturing. “I think there’s always an evolution of, you know, what you want to do in life. It’s all about finding things that really excite you and motivate you and spark you all over again. I’m realizing that no matter what, if you go into something with all these expectations and plans, once you’re actually living it, it could be completely different.”
So what could this mean for Keeping Up With the Kardashians and their spinoffs? Can it still be a reality powerhouse without Kim? Probably, but then again, do we really believe that she would be fully capable of walking away from reality television for good? She says a lot of things for attention and press, but you never know how motherhood can change people, so we’ll have to wait and see now won’t we?
These Kardashians Won’t Hold Me Back: Family Of Kris Humphries Wants Him To Give Kim A Divorce So THEY Can Move On
Seems that we’re not the only ones who think Kris Humphries needs to get on his Fantasia and go ahead and free himself, and Kim, by giving that girl a divorce. I mean seriously, it’s getting a little petty. She’s having a baby with another dude, people he plays ball with are making fun of his marital situation because they can, and no matter what he does or who he dates, talk of Kim follows him–he needs to do himself a favor and let it go already.
According to Radar Online, a source close to the family says they’re getting sick and tired of his “need to seek revenge” because being attached to the drama as a family is holding them back.
“Kris’ family finds the entire matter really annoying because they’re tired of the negative attention and don’t want to be tied to Kim at all anymore. They just want it to be over…It’s gone on too long and it’s upsetting for the family to know that Kris is out for revenge…The family doesn’t want to be connected to Kim or any of the Kardashians anymore, and they’re worried that Kris will get burned in the end.”
Humphries’ sister Kaela is particularly peeved as she’s thinking the negative attachment between her bro and Kim could be hampering her new modeling career with Ford Models. According to the source, Kaela, who is a plus-size model, seems to be getting turned down more than usual for jobs because the family thinks a lot of agencies that could help her book work are “pro Kim.”
Hmmm, I doubt all that, but it’s her story, not mine. But I will say, that even when I do see news online about Kaela getting work for different companies, a lot of sites like to claim that she’s cashing in on her brother’s sudden fame and popularity that came with dating and marrying Kim.
All in all, the family at this point doesn’t seem to have any ill will towards Kim, and it’s Kris who is still angry, but Kaela and the gang just want to move on. However, we’re not sure that’s going to happen anytime soon. Kris turned down Kim’s recent offer of $10 million for him to sign divorce papers, because, as the story continues to go, he feels that she tricked him and that the whole marriage was a fraud to begin with. He’s asking for her to go through with an annulment instead. According to Radar, their divorce trial isn’t set to happen until JUNE, so unless he cuts the bull and signs, or she just gives up and calls their time together a fraud, Kim will have to bring a child into the world with her boo Kanye, and her husband Kris on the sideline booing them along the way. Buuuuurn.
Some girls dream about that special sacred union since they’re very small; hopeful that one day they’ll be clad in a long white gown, adorned with jewels and flowers, and surrounded by a plethora of family and friends . This ceremony is hoped to be beautiful and magical, and the love between the two who are marrying is supposed to last forever.
One thing that Hollywood has made abundantly clear is that marriage is not meant for eternity, in fact, some marriages are over before the credits, on a feature length film, can roll.

“Would you leave your husband if he cheated on you?”
“If it was only once, I’d stay.”
“And if he hit you?”
“Oh, no. I am outta there. You hear me? Gone.”
“Only if it was once?”
“If he hits you once, he’ll hit you again.”
“If he cheated more than once?”
“I don’t know if I could stay, but I don’t know that I’d leave right away. We’d have to talk about it, go through some counseling. Work it out.”
This, my friends, is a composite conversation of overheard chats between women and a few I’ve had myself. I wondered about this discourse recently as the blogosphere swelled with commentary about Evelyn Lozada’s divorce filing from Chad Johnson. Upon learning that the couple was calling it quits after Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada (she had reportedly confronted him about finding condom receipts), the Internet was replete with discussions on domestic abuse, the sanctity of marriage, and whether the boisterous “Basketball Wives” cast member had it coming.
Then there were the ostensibly apt Kim Kardashian comparisions: Lozada and Johnson’s union of 41 days trumped Kardashian’s 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humprhies, knocking it from the top spot of the shortest reality TV-boosted marriages in recent pop history. While viewers and Twitter pundits love the tabloid fodder for all its gloss and DVR-worthy glass throwing, I thought about how we common folk assess the value of marriage in our own lives.
“Quit comparing Evelyn to Kim Kardashian! Evelyn was abused ,” one Facebook friend chimed. It appeared that in the court of public opinion, Kardashian, who was fervent in her denial that Humphries ever abused her, didn’t have a “good enough” reason to leave her marriage after less than three months. As she told Oprah Winfrey in June, “You know when you just have that feeling that he’s the one? When we moved in, I had the feeling he was not the one.”
What if you know that he’s not the one for you? Some folks may not subscribe to the concept of kismet, while others don’t discount the “knowing.” (I’ll say that I’ve never talked to a long-term married couple about relationships without hearing a “When ya know, ya know” thrown into the conversation.) The reasons why a woman lets a relationship get to the altar without “knowing” that her betrothed is “the one” are as subjective and varied as the very concept as everyone having a “one.” In Kardashian’s case, she is a woman who is ready to drop an “I just want my fairy tale” in front of any interviewer and camera keeping up with her. Kismet conversations aside, perhaps when Kim realized that a multi-million dollar wedding did not make a fairy tale and that she would actually have to live with this guy, she decided to salvage her life from her hefty decision, schadenfreude-subscribing naysayers be damned. It all depressed her, she said. Leaving a marriage, no matter how brief and no matter how famous the couple, surely can’t be easy.
The alleged head-butting incident that led Lozada to seek a divorce lawyer caused a problematic chatter all its own. Never mind the 41-day marriage; some folk rendered the abuse karma for Lozada’s reality-flavored TV ruthlessness against other “Basketball Wives” cast members. Reminiscent of the dialogue surrounding the Rihanna-Chris Brown drama of 2009, the competing public narratives of “Did she incite him?” and “Why are we blaming the victim?” came to the surface once more. As the divorce news hit, I was expecting to hear digital applause, because a woman should leave an abusive marriage, right? Or is her filing just plain bad for the preservation of a holy union? Should she have stuck it out? Reading the comments of I-told-you-so finger waggers, I wondered this: How sacrosanct can a marriage be if your husband is head-butting you?
Going to the altar without being sure of your lifetime commitment (sans the clichéd cold feet and jitters), as with Kardashian and likely many other unnamed, non-famous women, is not ideal. And, not that the following is true in Evelyn’s case (because not one of us knows what really happened), it’s unlikely that abuse will cease just because your man puts a ring on it.
When does staying together trump the acknowledgement of our human foibles, the very ones that can often leave us dangerously in lust or committed to the hope that things will get better once we jump the broom? Does preserving the sanctity of marriage mean that you must stay bound not only to the man you married, but also to a poor choice?
I’d be remiss not to mention the idea of staying together for the kids. While neither Kardashian nor Humphries has children together, Johnson and Lozada each have children from previous relationships. Is staying together for the kids good for anyone, the kids included?
One thing I’m learning through pop culture watching, eavesdropping and chatting with my girlfriends is this: While marriage tethers a couple through “for better” and “for worse,” one woman’s “for worse” may constitute another’s absolute deal breaker.
Readers, I’m asking you like I’ve asked my friends: What reason is “good enough” to leave a marriage, and who decides that? How soon is too soon to dip out if you realize you shouldn’t have married him in the first place? What determines due diligence in keeping a marriage together? How bad does the “for worse” have to be before you bounce?

Slowly but surely, reality television has dominated the airwaves, and we, viewers, have witnessed our fair share of relationships unfold and crumble under the sallow lights of television-fame. The constant exposure, desire to intrigue and need to create “authentic” moments often causes gigantic rifts between friendships and couples…even within iconic relationships. Jon & Kate, Britney Spears & Kevin Federline and Hulk & Linda Hogan have all fallen victim to the side effects of lime-light living, but they aren’t the only ones.
Diary Presents Brandy: Special Delivery: Brandy Norwood & Robert “Big Bert” Smith
The Grammy Award winning songstress, Brandy Norwood began her entertainment career as a 14-year old on the short-lived sitcom, “Thea” in 1993. Since, the actress/singer/dancer launched a successful singing career, which is where she has garnered the bulk of her success. While working on her third studio album, Full Moon, with Dark Child producer and composer Robert Smith, she became romantically involved with him, and eventually pregnant. In lieu of the pregnancy, the pop star and her “husband” decided to televise their love and home life on MTV’s Diary Presents Brandy: Special Delivery, where she documented the final months of pregnancy and birth of her daughter Sy’rai. Not long afterward, the two announced their separation, and later came clean about NEVER having been married in the first place. The nuptials were staged to help Brandy preserve her public image.
