Kim Kardashian

Divorce Turns Ugly

Reality TV On Trial

2/7/2012 6:00 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?

How old is that photo of her on the current Life&Style magazine? She does not look like that anymore.It is supposed to be her "sad face." Maybe she is sad because her mother just agreed to promote a sex product,according to one site.They never change.

I never thought Kim, nor Kris got married b/c of a show, or b/c of ratings. It finally hit me on why Kim thought and hoped it was the real thing.... The very loonnnnnnngggg pre-nup, that's chalked full of pages! Now would she ever go through that trouble if she was doing it for the money? Also, Kim is a smart business woman, if this was all for money, and they longer she stayed married to the hump, she'd probably still be in her "marriage."

Reality shows used to be more about reality, and was edited a lot more honestly, than it is now.

Reality shows will give you a platform to use, suggest to you what you would like to discuss, w/o a formal script. Just basic
ad-libbing, like you would with your family everyday. Then it gets edited to hell!

I believe it is a REAL SHAME that Kris Jenner has TOTALLY brought the Kardashian family name into COMPLETE & UTTER DISREPUTE and made them all a laughing joke just for the almihgty dollar and turned her children into media whores.

Kim, you are a short large person. I honestly don't know how you get yourself off the sofa? In every episode I watch with you, you are always EATING! Aside from all this, the fact is, "You made a very $$$ decision to gain publicity and it worked!" The sad thing is, now you are claiming, BOO HOO! And POOR LITTLE ME! The truth is, "You are not little, you are no longer 17 and you had the mindset of a GROWN UP!" Here is a very appropriate question for you Kim, "WHO GET MARRIED and moves in with their SISTER/SISTER/S BOYFRIEND AND CHILD a couple days later?" It wasn't as if you and Kris couldn't afford your OWN separate hotel room! Kim, you claim that you and Kris never lived together before your sham of a marriage and yet after you are married you move in with your SISTER/YOUR SISTER/S BOYFRIEND AND THEIR CHILD? It just doesn't make common sense!!! When you have so much money, why in hell would you choose to move in with your family and their baby? This is why people don't trust you Kim, because it seems obvious to most of us that you had a different objective!!! And it is generally associated with GREED, i.e. $$$$

She's a "knife in the back" business woman. She pre-planned it. Of course he proposed to her. He's the guy! She had a pre-nup, of course, they are both celebrities and if it was pre-planned for her show, then of course she doesn't want to get the money confused with his. Really, she's a scam artist. She puts on a show for the people but it's so fake. Fake attitude, fake lifestyle, fake presentation.

I haven't posted in years however Harvey, the "I am lawyer" - The world knows it was fake! Kim never planned to stay married wouldn't even let her HUSBAND move his clothes in! You have sold out not just TMZ but your creditability as a lawyer/person to millions of people. Kim has played her whole career since sex tape on the camera, even called the radio show to announce her divorce BEFORE telling her "husband". Why shouldn't it be on tv? Kris was immature in his marriage yet he never touched Kim while Kim hit Kris. (Now if the situation was different and Kris hit Kim and YOU would be saying domestic abuse)EVERYDAY! You have been BOUGHT OUT! Kris has won! Kim and her mother have lied so much - didn't make a cent! (lol) out of their mouths! Everyone knows is was a faux marriage with Kim! Everyone knows behind close doors Kris might not get a fair trial in California! Look at Mr. Attorney - your logic is beyond scripted too! It is like Charlie Sheen case - everyone knew he had won before the court doors were opened! It is the same for Kris - WE SAW!!!!! (do you honestly think the show executives are going to perjure themselves for Kim?) Again, WE SAW! Kim isn't helping herself- she needs to go ahead and admit it so that she can move on! Again, Kim, we saw! We are not fooled!
