Get Ready for The Divorce of The Decade!

From Radar:

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are scheduled to have their depositions taken in their ongoing divorce proceedings at the end of June, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

As we previously reported, Humphries’ lawyer plans on asking Kim about her decision to keep the $325k white Ferrari that was given to the former couple by a wealthy Malaysian businessman as a wedding gift, amongst other matters vexing her soon-to-be ex-husband.

Kardashian filed for divorce after only 72 days of marriage, and has since moved on to date Kanye West.

“Kim’s deposition will take place at her lawyerLaura Wasser’s office at the end of June and Kris’ attorney Lee Hutton will do the majority of the questioning,” a source close to the former couple tells RadarOnline.com. “The deposition is scheduled to last for an entire day. Kris’ deposition will take place in Minnesota towards the end of June also and Kim’s attorney will have to fly from California for that. Kris lives in Minnesota during the off season and this is where his attorney is based. His deposition is also scheduled to take a full business day.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Kris is pushing hard for their divorce case to go to trial and for cameras to be allowed to film the proceedings, something the usually publicity-hungry Kardashian is vehemently against.

“Kim is just livid that she has to be deposed. She has tried to get out of it, but there is no way she can,” the source says. “Kris is ready for his deposition to be taken and just wants the truth to get out about what really happened when they were dating and after the wedding,” the source says.

Despite all the hours I’ve spent watching Law and Order: SVU, I actually don’t know all that much about law. Shocking, right? But I know that some of you are much more knowledgeable than I am in this area, so just give it to me straight: am I going to be able to hear every single thing that Kim and Kris discuss in these depositions? They’re supposed to spend an entire business day each talking about their relationship and the divorce, so are they going to video it and release it on E! or something? Can I at least read some notes about it? Because I am dying to hear Kris talk about Kim for eight hours.

Kris Humphries Is Still A Good Person

Back at the beginning of the month, I told you guys all about how Kris Humphries invited Kaely Kwitek, a 16-year-old girl suffering from cancer and a fellow Humphries supporter, to see him play. Apparently Kaely is a super fan of Kris’, and he was planning on paying for Kaely and her family to fly in and catch a Nets game. After they set the date, Kris said this:

“I’m truly honored that someone with much larger things on their plate feels that my involvement in their cause is important. Not many of us can be as strong as she has been. I hope that many more will join me and support Team Kaely.”

Well, the date that Kaely was scheduled to visit has come and gone, so what happened?

From TMZ:

Kris Humphries’ date with 16-year-old cancer patient Kaely Kwitek has the NBA star smitten … so much so that he’s in it for the long haul.

As TMZ previously reported … Kaely — who is battling stage 4 anaplastic large-cell lymphoma –  was invited to be Humphries’ guest of honor at a Nets game … once he found out it was her dream to hang out with the NBA superstar.

Sources close to Kris tell TMZ … after meeting Kaely following the Nets game on April 23, he is determined use his star power to help raise money for the 16-year-old, in order to help her family with the staggering financial costs.

We’re told Humphries is also excited to get the teenager to as many games as possible next season, since Kaely said the unforgettable experience lifted her spirits tremendously.

Kaely’s trip wasn’t all roses … the Nets lost by 18.

This is why I like Kris Humphries. He does these awesome things, and he doesn’t tweet every single detail like some famous people would. He’s a decent guy who got infatuated with a girl he didn’t really know and got into a bit of a pickle. I think Kim played him for all he was worth, and when it turned out that he wanted to settle down and start a family instead of another spin-off show, she decided he wasn’t worth all that much.

Are any of you guys turning into Humphries supporters now, too?

I’ve Got a Lot of Questions About Kris Humphries’ New Photo Shoot

… But mostly, I think I just really want to know why he’s wearing so much eyeshadow.

I’ve got other questions, too, like ‘how does it feel to be dumped for Kanye West’, and ‘why do Kim’s friends hate Kris so much’, because Kim’s people are blasting him for hanging out in the spotlight where Kim left him. From the Huffington Post:

“The pictures are ridiculous and just go to show how far Kris is willing to go to remain in the public spotlight,” a friend of Kim’s tells me. “I haven’t spoken with Kim about them, but you know she will get a good laugh when she sees them.”

[Another friend says] “He’s a dude, he’s in great shape and very attractive and wanted to show that off,” Derek Warburton tells me. “He was getting pulverized week after week on the cover of every magazine, and he’s cool. I wanted people to see that. This has blown up. Everyone is talking about Kris now.”

But Kris’s rep’s claim that the interview is on the up and up and has nothing to do with exploiting his sham-marriage to Kim any further:

“The allegations that he’s seeking revenge with this photo shoot are false and we remain adamant that personal issues will be handled by his legal team and not in the media.”

So, I don’t know. I just don’t. Is Kris a bad guy? No, I don’t think so. Is he overstaying his welcome in the celebrity world? That’s subjective. Some would argue that because Kim “created” him, he’s got every right to be there. Since she exploited him and molded him to be “famous,” this is the result. Who, after all, has the ultimate authority to decide who deserves to be famous for whatever reasons anyway, when we’ve got people like f-cking Snooki and The Situation and all of those ho-bag teen moms running around? At least Kris Humphries has things going for him – like how he’s, you know, a professional basketball player and not, YOU KNOW, famous for no reason other than the fact that his family has money and can throw it around like it’s piss on a dirty whore.

Kris Humphries: Solid Dude

Oh God, I’m not trying to make Kris Humphries “happen,” am I? Last week I showed you guys that interview he did with Life & Style and I told you that I “kind of like” him, which is true, and the week before that, I told you guys about the divorce battle between Kris and Kim, and I defended him. Am I a Humphries sympathizer? Do I think he’s a good person?

Actually, I think I might. Especially thanks to this story from TMZ:

Being with Kris Humprhies may not be Kim Kardashian’s wish anymore, but it is for a 16-year-old cancer patient in upstate NY … and the NBA star is making it come true, TMZ has learned.

Friends of Kaely Kwitek started a Twitter account called @Kris4Kaely in an effort to get the attention of Kaely’s favorite basketball player. Kwitek has stage 4 anaplastic large-cell lymphoma and her friends were hoping to wrangle Kris for a benefit for Kaely in May.

Their persistence paid off and Kris noticed. After trading a few emails, Kris and Kaely decided on April 23 for her to come down and catch a Nets game as Kris’ guest. He’ll handle all expenses for Kaely and her family and even meet up with her after the game.

Kris tells TMZ, “I’m truly honored that someone with much larger things on their plate feels that my involvement in their cause is important. Not many of us can be as strong as she has been. I hope that many more will join me and support Team Kaely.”

Call me naive, but I can’t see a truly bad person doing something like this. Kris gets another pass in my book.

Oh, and here’s something I like to think about that this story reminded me of: isn’t it weird how pretty much every celebrity is someone’s favorite celebrity? Think about it. Somebody’s absolute dream guy is Steve Buscemi (which is kind of fair). Someone’s life would be positively made if they could just meet Courtenay Semel (remember her?). Isn’t that wild?

It’s the little things, you guys.

Kris Humphries Wants You to Get to Know The Real Kris Humphries

A photo of Kris Humphries

Please take a moment to read these excerpts from Kris Humphries‘ interview with Life & Style. As I’m sure you all realize, Kris Humphries is going to be a fixture in the entertainment world for years to come, and since he’s already such a key figure in the media and so loved and adored by millions, it makes sense that he would want to make sure all his admirers know what he’s really about. I won’t give everything away, but here’s a spoiler: he’s a great dude.

From Life & Style:

Kris Humphries is in the midst of a heated divorce with Kim Kardashian, but the busy NBA player set aside time to speak with Life & Style during his Sector watch photo shoot in New York City. Kris was candid about the tough year he’s faced and says he’s eager for people to get to know the real him.

“I am a genuine person who says it like it is,” he told Life & Style at the March 20 shoot, adding about being the face of the brand, “I only like to be involved with things I truly believe in. It’s the kind of person I am. A lot of people do things just for money, but that’s not for me.”

These days, the 6-foot-9 athlete has one of the most famous faces in the world, but he tells Life & Style he’s not concerned about the negativity.

“I’m used to it,” he confided. “I’m comfortable being in my own skin and being out there.”

As for the future? He’s taking it one step at a time.

“I’m really just going with the flow right now, trying to have fun in life,” he says. “I just want people to see the lighter side to me. Life is too serious sometimes — people take things too seriously. I think everyone should be able to make fun of themselves and just have fun.”

If there’s one person who stands behind Kris’ character, it’s Sector’s Chris Del Gatto.

“Kris is always very thoughtful about everything he does,” Del Gatto tells Life & Style. “It was a no-brainer that he be the face of Sector. He really embodies the ethos of the brand. He’s someone who pushes himself.”

Yeah, I think this is all pretty much true, especially the “genuine person who says it like it is” part. From watching the shows, it’s clear that he’s one of those people who will tell you the absolute truth, no matter what, with absolutely zero sugarcoating. That made him seem like kind of dick sometimes, but that’s just the kind of person he is, and if you don’t like that, then, I don’t know, I guess don’t marry him. I think Kim just wanted to find some clueless dude, mold him into what she wanted, then marry him and get pregnant. It was never about being so in love and all that, it was about getting someone to bend to her will and also give her babies. And yeah, she picked the wrong person.

I kind of like Kris. Too bad he’s going to disappear after the divorce is over. Except in the NBA, I guess. Meh.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Both Want An Annulment

A photo of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

Great! If they both want an annulment, then things should go pretty smoothly, right? It should be no time at all before Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are able to move on with their lives as if they had never been married at all! How convenient!

LOL, you guys, you know things aren’t going to go smoothly at all. You know how annulment works, right? In order to get one, you have to prove that something was wrong with the marriage from the get-go, like you were forced to get married or you married a minor or a close blood relative, something like that, you can’t just chalk it all up to irreconcilable differences.

So what would be the reason for Kris and Kim’s annulment? Fraud. And what’s the hold up? They both want the other person to confess to it. Of course.

From TMZ:

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are both willing to end their marriage with an annulment, but each is insisting that the other confess to fraud — and that’s what is holding up their settlement.

Sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ … Kim would be happy to annul the marriage, if Kris will admit he defrauded her by promising to live with her in Hollywood and then demanding that she move to Minnesota — something we told you about last October.

As we first reported, Kris wants Kim to admit fraud — that she never had any intention of making this a real marriage … something Kim has adamantly denied.

We’re told Kim will open the vault and spend anything it takes to win this case if Kris insists that she confesses fraud.

As for money … we’ve already told you Kris is demanding $7 million from Kim — something Kim thinks is absurd since he MADE money off the wedding and the reality show PLUS they have a prenup which gives Kris a big fat zero.

Yeah, for some reason I think Kris has the advantage here. Just from looking at Evil Beet alone, you could probably get a pretty good argument for his case. There are a good few pieces of evidence that show that Kim really was faking the whole thing, and besides, does Kim have any grounds at all for her argument? Kris’ whole thing was “nobody is going to care about you in a few years, so why don’t we just go ahead and make a home in Minnesota?” and I’m paraphrasing that, but just barely. He told her something but then he wanted to discuss it. Kim’s case sounds more like a case for hurt feelings than for fraud.

Whatever happens, I just hope we get to see this courtroom drama unfold. It will be the trashy, catty Law and Order spin-off that I always dreamed of.

Did You Guys Watch Kourtney and Kim Take New York Last Night?

A photo of Kim Kardashian

Because it was so good. Kim spent the entire episode going back and forth between bawling her eyes out and being a total bitch. It was a wild and crazy adventure, and if you love to trash talk the Kardashians, then it was something you must see.

If you didn’t see it though, it’s not a big deal. Not only did I watch it, but I watched and took notes so I could go over some of the highlights from the episode with you guys. Are you ready for this?

If you haven’t been watching, last night’s episode was the second part of the season finale. In the first part, which aired last Sunday, Kim met with psychic John Edward to try and get in touch with her deceased father. Both Kris (her husband, not her mom) and Kourtney were against this for religious reasons, but Kourtney ended up sitting in on the meeting. John Edward made both Kardashians cry by bringing up memories of their dad, but then he asked Kim if she was divorced. When Kim said that she had gotten a divorce, but that she was currently married again, John kept asking her, for her father, “did you learn from what this is?” And then Kim had a little break down. And now that we’re caught up, let’s jump into a recap of last night, shall we?

Kim tells Kourtney that she was crying so hard after the meeting with the psychic because “when he was talking about like, like the divorce stuff,” it made her realize that she’s not happy in her marriage. She says “I honestly feel like I can’t do this anymore with Kris.” Kourtney suggests that maybe she should give it time, maybe they should go home and actually live together like a married couple and not with another couple in a suite in a hotel. Kim insists that she can’t do it anymore.

Then Kim and Kris have a talk and discuss their issues. They agree that they need to spend more time together than they had been, and that during their last few days in New York, they should hang out and have fun. At one point, Kim says to Kris “I don’t know, sometimes I just feel so like dead inside.” Great sign, right?
