This week’s Us Weekly must be short of stories, since it’s going for another boilerplate Kim Kardashian cover.
The tabloid has an inflammatory title on the cover: “Kim’s Divorce Hell: Kim’s side of the story. Humiliated and desperate to move on, Kim begs Kris to set her free. But he is plotting to get her money and ruin her name.”
A few things, in case you were in any doubt, this isn’t even exclusive since her pimps at E! had the same pro-Kardashian story up last night claiming Kris Humphries intended to extort money from Kardashian by holding out on the divorce in anticipation of a bigger payout. Except his team already spoke to the tabloids to say he’s not interested in the money, and sources from his camp say the same. Moreover, she’s not “humiliated” since she’s playing the contrived divorce for sympathy following a sham wedding for money. And, it’s pretty laughable that Humphries could ruin the name of a glorified pr0n star.
The story is flimsy at best. It claims Humphries gave away wedding gifts to family and friends while Kardashian, eventually, gave over market value for the gifts to charity making sure the press found out (mouthpieces, pro-Kardashian TMZ.com were first to report).
A drunk-sounding source says: “[Kris] gave a ton of s**t to his family. Check the Humphries home in Minnesota for some $27,000 Lalique vases!”
In related news, Us Weekly reports Kardashian is slimming the weight put on after the divorce filing and claims to have lost six-pounds in seven days. But she also claims she’s size two. “I’m on a mission,” said 5 ft 2 in Kardashian. “I figure, I’m single. Now is the best time to get in shape. No more sitting at home, eating too much.”
