Fans are used to “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” on a weekly basis, so it’s only natural that they’re sharing their two cents on Kim Kardashian’s divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries on Monday (October 31).
Team Kardashian has flooded the comments section of MTV.com, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages, to dish their thoughts on the 72-day marriage. And with Kim filing for divorce (citing “irreconcilable differences”) so soon after their August nuptials, many have been quick to pass judgment on the pair.
However, some fans, like MTV.com user Baby_Girl_2004, have remained hopeful that the Hollywood socialite will one day find her happily ever after. “I’m not one bit surprised about this. I knew it wasn’t going to last at all,” the reader wrote. “Don’t get me wrong she is a beautiful woman but they didn’t have that spunk like Khloé and Lamar do. But anyways hope it works out for the best…. good luck Kim.”
Facebook user Susan Araujo expressed her disappointment in the sudden news, writing, “Nooooo!!! They made such a great couple. Hoping they both can find love again in this crazy world.”
Nakia626 stuck up for the TV darling on Twitter, commending her for keeping a positive attitude.”He never seemed like a REAL fit for Kim. Good luck to her, glad she’s got her chin up!!” she wrote.
In a statement, Humphries said he is “willing to do whatever it takes to make it work,” but there’s not too many optimists among the Kardashian spectators. “Not surprised at all,” MTV.com reader Phoebe said. “Kim was way too high maintenance for Kris, and Kris was happy living an ordinary life away from celebrity, which clearly Kim doesn’t want. This is why it’s a good idea to date someone for at least 2 years before getting engaged. Most everything’ll come out of the woodwork by then.”
Amvanillabean took to the MTV.com comments section, writing, “Not surprised at all. I saw this coming a mile away. I believe that they only got married for content on the show. What else would the show be about? Publicity stunt for sure!”
Bamachic425 wasn’t too shocked to learn of the news either, speculating that the Kardashian starlet is “looking so hard to find fast love” to compete with sisters Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian. “She needs to take a step back and see what’s best for her.”
MTV user Rich offered some humor amid the sad news. “Well, at least she got to return him during the 90-day warranty period,” he joked.
It’s not just fans who are speaking out on the news, but also Kim’s sisters, who took to Twitter to defend their sibling. “Reading some these comments r so hurtful,” Khloé tweeted. “Im grateful 4our fans who understand & r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything. Thank God for family. We are strong and we will only become closer! I love YOU.”
Kourtney also took to Twitter to show support for Kim, writing, “Our sister is going through a difficult time but we’re a close family and are sticking together like always. We appreciate everyone’s kindness and support. @KimKardashian, we love you.”
