Kim Kardashian

Divorce Turns Ugly

Reality TV On Trial

2/7/2012 12:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
The Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries divorce has become a bitter fight, and we've learned Kris' lawyer intends to put reality TV on trial ... but that could blow up in his face.

Sources tell us ... Kris and his lawyer, Lee Hutton, want to "expose the M.O. of reality TV" by proving Kim had no intention of staying married to him, but just wanted big ratings for her reality show.

Now here's the irony. The duo wants to prove their point by asking the judge to allow TMZ and TV stations to broadcast the trial -- something that the judge might find a tad hypocritical ... not that we're complaining.

TMZ broke the story ... Kim filed for divorce on grounds of "irreconcilable differences." Kris has countered that he wants the marriage annulled based on fraud.

Kris has a couple of problems with the fraud claim. First of all, he's the one who proposed. Second, the publicity has made him famous and marketable and he'll make millions more than he would have otherwise.

And another big point in Kim's favor ... We've learned the prenup is extremely long and complicated ... accounting for what would happen years into the future. Why would she go through the time and trouble of having a long prenup if she planned on pulling the plug on the marriage within a few months?

BEYONCE

Flaunts New Mom Curves

In First Appearance Since Baby!


0207_welcome_beyonce_launch

Baby Blue Ivy's mom, Beyonce Knowles, has finally made her post-pregnancy debut!

The 30-year-old singer stepped out last night for the first time since giving birth in to her little girl with Jay-Z last month.

Beyonce put her new curves on display in a tight red-orange Alice Temperly dress, which she paired with some bedazzled Christian Louboutin heels -- proving she's still as stylish as ever since having a baby.

Bey, Jay-Z and her mom Tina were at Carnegie Hall, where the rapper had his first of two benefit concerts for the United Way of New York City and the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.

With mom and dad back out in public, will we be seeing Blue Ivy soon too?!





'Bayou Billionaires'

Humping in Dubai


0203_bayou_billionaires_launch_EX_v2 Here's a photo of the super-rich couple from CMT's "Bayou Billionaires" doing what most oil moguls do best ... spoiling themselves!!!

Gerald and Kitten Dowden -- who became a real life "Beverly Hillbillies" family when they found oil on their property in Louisiana last year -- recently booked a trip to Dubai ... and TMZ has the pics.

Ever since the family struck it rich, they've been treating themselves to the finer things in life ... and when we asked why they decided to travel to the Middle East, Kitty told us ... "because we CAN!”

Mama Dowden says the couple rode dune buggies, participated in an authentic Bedouin dinner ... and of course, treated themselves to a camel ride.

Kitty adds, "We would definitely go back again, it was a great experience!"

Better hope that well doesn't dry up ...

HAVING MY SAY    

I do not believe Beyonce was ever really pregnant. I believed she was wearing a prostesis(sp) belly when in public. Her pregnancy was very fast and strange..even the birth was strange. I believe she and Shawn adopted/bought a baby. time will tell, once the baby's looks set in. If the baby looks like either parent...well "my bad"..unless maybe they had a serogate mom?

Kris wants to expose reality TV by putting his divorce trial on reality TV. Makes perfect sense to me.

I used to be a fan of kim kardashian. She makes me sick now. I have lost all respect for her with what she did to Kris. Her crying is all fake, because she got caught. She gives marriage a bad name,and what in the world was she thinking. All the money and fame has gone to her head. There are so many young girls viewing her show, and she is sending the wrong message about marriage. The young viewers will think it is okay to get married, and when it gets tough, all you have to do is back out. Marriage does not work like that. You have to work at it, just like she works out her butt!!!

Uncle Wayne says:
Re: Kim K. this is EXACTLY what I said would happen. Kim K. and others should read When Prophecy Fails by Leon Festinger of Stanford. (She needs to marry Lady Ga Ga.)

I hope Kris H screws that Kardashian skank over big time and hit it where it hurts..that whole family are nothing but bottom feeders of the worse kind..and Ryan Seacrest is running all the way to the bank making millions off those skanks on E Television..he's not much better.
