It takes a special guy to keep up with the Kardashians. Lamar Odom and Scott Disick have certainly found their place among the glamorous Hollywood family, but it wasn’t as easy for Kris Humphries.
When news broke that Kim Kardashian had filed for divorce from the basketball player Monday, after only 72 days of marriage, MTV News decided to look back at a June interview with Kim’s sisters, Kourtney and Khloé , to get some insight into what may have gone wrong with the couple.
“Doing our family show is like [the best],” Khloé told MTV News in June about Kris joining “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” as well as the family itself, hinting that there was some heated discourse between her and Kim about the nature of her relationship with Kris. “We love doing it, ’cause we’re all together all the time, so we definitely feel like we’re back and in full effect.
“The first episode is, you get to really see how Kim and Kris first started dating,” Khloé added. “And especially Kim and I have a lot of arguments about it, because she comes to my house and I have a lot of old memorabilia of her old exes. She doesn’t like that, but I don’t know who Kris is, so I don’t know. I feel like I didn’t get the memo to change the pictures, so there’s a lot of feuding going on.”
Khloé is no stranger to whirlwind romances. She married her husband, Lamar Odom , after only a month of dating. Regardless of her own relationship history, Khloé was still floored by Kim’s decision to marry the basketball player so soon into their relationship.
“Mine was insanity in the best way ever,” Khloé said of her quickie engagement to Odom . “But [with] Kim’s, we were totally surprised. I mean, because I had been working so much, and Kris lives in New Jersey, I’ve only met him not even a handful of times. We were at a family dinner, and she walks in, and she’s like, ’I’m engaged,’ but we didn’t even know if it was a joke.
“But that’s the cool thing about this whole season: You do get to see Kim [and Kris] kind of from the beginning of the relationship to the engagement,” Khloé continued. “Obviously, no one knew in between what was going to happen, so it’s cool that they have it documented for their future.”
During the chat, Khloé pointed out that trying to find a place among the Kardashians isn’t always easy. “I mean, we’re still a family, so you’re going to see what normal families do. There’s sibling rivalry, but it’s different this time around, because we all have our own families,” she explained. “So trying to combine three outside [men into] such a strong family is really hard, and the men, I think, sometimes want to rip their hair out. Thank God Lamar is bald. But it is hard to balance all that. It is always going to be that family dynamic that’s always the same. Of course, there’s always the fighting and the drama.”
