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?

That entire Kardashian family is out only for one thing: Make money! They also achieved in hoodwinking America into following the "trials" of these sisters.. What have they done in life? They don't work, they get paid to show up at a party. REALITY!! Not even close..
Get a real job

I saw a film once about a brothel run by a woman with 5 daughters, that's what the whole thing smacks of.

Your use of ellipsis--it doesn't mean what you think it means.

if you watched the show you would see Kim had nothing to do with the prenup her mom handled everything. Kourtney called up the mother and asked when was she going to take care of the prenup because everyone is on the brand and everyone stood to lose and pimp momma jumped on it...so it could be true that Kim had this all planned since she never mentioned anything about the prenup on the show..only her family did...the show is fake and we all know it..just like most reality shows that last longer than one season...they all become scripted...

Reality TV has gone way to far, creating scripts in lieu of the spontaneous "real" lives of people. The Kardashian reality show is about as real as a colony of humans living on the sun. The Kardashian's are nobody's, literally, no bodies, who wouldn't even be know if it were not for the O.J. trial & their Dad's involvement in defense counsel, and as much riding Bruce Jenner's coat tails. Who's talent has ended back in the olympics 30+ plus yrs. ago. TV as a whole has gone backwards, just when technologies have arrived to create great TV shows. However these reality shows, less Kitchen Nightmares w/Gordon Ramsay or Jamie Oliver's Road Trip, have gone to trash, while the two British chefs, lierally are insgightful & worth watching extreme talent in action. I say pull the plug on the Kardashians. I despise Soap Opera's, and the kardashian reality shows are just that, but worse than any soap opera. From the stinking soap operas to trashypoor reality TV shows..... who is fooling who, I'm just stunned teeny bopper girls get so deep into these pretentious shows.

Kim is a skank. Kris was hoodwinked. He's not the most sophisticated dude, but Kim knew that going in. The whole wedding was a fake and it made me sick to see Kim crying, etc. in the finale - what a joke. As far as I'm concerned, Kris Jenner is a pimp. And Daddy Bruce is clueless, but loves the attention and the $$$$$. Kim Kardashian makes Paris Hilton look like a respectable and hard working young lady.

Kris has nothing to lose. She's dragged him through the mud and he might as well expose the dopey show. I say, go for it if you have the bucks! He'll be fine as long as he stays at the top of his game.

The Long PreNup means nothing. It won't hurt Humphries because any celebrity PreNup will be set for events in the far-future, and it's likely that it was put together well-before the marriage, AND when Kardashian was still in "love". Let's face it Kim Kardashian's attention span is shorter than a, well, whatever, you get my point!

The timing of the contract will be relevant as to when it was drafted and executed and in short won't be an issue that hurts Humphries IMHO.
