It’s been mentioned before that pimp momager has executive producer control over the show and she can demand flattering edits. And Kim Kardashian, not a producer, can still demand edits of any footage she doesn’t like. So, logically, it’s not out of the question that they could request edits that make Humphries look bad. More specifically, edit to make him look like a cheater.
In the show’s trailers, these specific scenes were added so cheating would be the focus of the tabloid rumours (standing in a room with women isn’t cheating nor is standing next to women at a club). The trailers showed Humphries throwing a party in his wife’s absence where several women (and maybe men too) were in attendance. The trailer also showed Kardashain finding these same pictures and (hypocritically) calling the girls “whores” for being in her room, holding “KK” and “KH” monogram towels, being in her bath and her bed while clothed, all in the presence of E! cameras.
The same photos have miraculously surfaced in time for the plotline in next week’s show. The photos show @shellmerci, with a friend, around the room with the reality cameras filming behind them. In the September-dated photos, she wrote: “On Kim’s bed! …Kim and kris’ closet!! Oh my god!!!… kim k and kris humphries bathtub!!’… kris humphries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
On December 11, another Twitter user @glfitzpatrick wrote: “@shellmerci is the acct that’ll b featured n next weeks #kktny.”
In a recent issue of Life & Style, Humphries reportedly claimed such unflattering scenes were literally scripted.
