Kris Humphries Makes His First Post-Split Appearance

Though his ex-wife didn’t waste anytime before hitting a red carpet without her wedding band, Kris Humphries finally made his first solo appearance on the press line, Nov. 17. The NBA baller rocked a slick navy suit at a press conference at the Trump SoHo, where he was announced as the new face of Sector Watches.

While Kris didn’t have a leading lady standing by his side, the basketball star was in good company with a Sector Watches rep. Hmm, wonder what Kim Kardashian thinks of her former hubby’s new business venture…

People Petition For “No More Kardashian”

Uh-oh. I’m sure this is NOT the response Kim Kardashian, her mother/manager Kris Jenner, the rest of the Kardashian clan, or the people at E! were expecting as part of the fallout from Kim’s wedding/divorce drama.

ABC News reports that “thousands” have signed an online petition (it’s here) to E! asking them to take the Kardashian family off the air. The petition’s organizer said:

“In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming. We feel these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.

“While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of ‘reality satire,’ it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behavior after them. I’ll remind you here that the Kardashian family fame largely started with a ‘leaked’ sex tape.”

As of yesterday afternoon, 70,601 people had signed the petition. Goodness! The petition is so popular, the website hosting it said it may take a while for new signatures to show up due to “very heavy traffic.”

I’m guessing the only way to get the Kardashian shows off the air is if there’s a massive ratings drop, but this may be the beginning of the end of the Kardashians as the reigning reality TV personalities. What do you think?

Michael Buble Mocks Kim Kardashian

I must admit, these are two celebs I never thought I’d be writing about in one post! Michael Buble apparently isn’t a Kim Kardashian fan, given the comments he made at one of his concerts over the weekend. It started with a joke:

“Ladies and gentleman, I have a very special guest … Please welcome Kim Kardashian to the stage.”

When the audience “gasped,” Michael said:

“Nah, just f***ing with you! That b*tch isn’t coming on my stage.”

He also said about Kim and Kris Humphries:

“She hurt him, she hurt him! I wish she had hurt me!”

Not sure what Michael means by that…

Kim Kardashian Hires High-Powered Attorney To Go After Former Publicist

With all the negative fall-out from Kim Kardashian’s lavish wedding and divorce after only 72 days of marriage, I guess Kim can’t afford to let her former publicist’s claims go unanswered.

Remember when I told you about Jonathan Jaxson’s claims that Kim’s wedding was “staged” for publicity? Well, Kim is hitting back by hiring attorney Marty Singer. Apparently, Kim has her publicists sign confidentiality agreements.

But Jonathan told TMZ he isn’t worried.

“I have never signed an agreement dealing with confidentiality with Kim Kardashian.  I have an agreement in my possession that does not have either parties signature on it.”

Oops. I guess you need to make sure those agreements are signed.

Kim Kardashian & Vanessa Williams Are Flight Buddies

Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Williams were spotted catching a flight out of Atlanta yesterday. They’ve finished filming their parts for the Tyler Perry movie ‘The Wedding Counselor’ (or maybe they just have a break in filming).

It looks like Kim and Vanessa became close: at least, they seem to enjoy chatting as they make their way through the airport! A lot of people seem to be upset about Kim’s marriage and divorce from Kris Humphries. It seems like the best thing for her to do would be to stay out of the spotlight until the new year, let the furor die down. What do you think?

Kim Kardashian Wedding “Staged” Claims Her Former Publicist

Kim Kardashian’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, who worked with Kim from 2007 to 2009, spilled the beans on Kim’s supposed PR tricks. (It should be noted, though, that obviously Jonathan wasn’t her publicist when she married Kris Humphries.)

Yet Jonathan feels confident that Kim’s wedding was staged.

“She knew weeks before getting married she didn’t want to do it. She’s never gotten over [ex Reggie Bush].”

I wondered about that, given how long she and Reggie were together (despite periods of separation). Jonathan dished on the media stunts he did pull with Kim.

“I staged several of the moments that the world has seen of her, such as a ring that we alleged was from Reggie Bush. It was December 26, 2007 — I remember the day.

She was going to go shopping with her grandmother and her mom and we said, ‘Let’s do something to get more press for you.’ She said, ‘Perfect. Let me go to a ring store and walk out as if Reggie Bush were proposing to me … I have ring I love and adore — it’s seven carats. I’ll keep it in my purse.’It was calculated to a T and then it was leaked to a magazine.”

Unfortunately, Reggie wasn’t in on the stunt, and that’s the reason he ended his relationship with Kim, according to Jonathan. Jonathan admits Kim didn’t pay him but says he isn’t talking out of bitterness.

“I am out of the industry and I really want to talk about what happens behind the scenes. Some things sound damaging, but in reality I just want to shed light on another part of life that we read about everyday.”

Not sure I believe that, but I suspect what he’s saying is true. What do you think?

Did Kim Kardashian Fly To Minnesota To Reconcile With Kris?

Is Kim Kardashian re-thinking her decision to divorce Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage? Well, not exactly. BUT, the reality star did pay her ex a little visit over the weekend!

According to multiple reports, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians starlet touched down in Kris’ home state of Minnesota this weekend, where the barely-married pair met with the pastor who married them to talk things out.

Though the former newlyweds won’t be donning their wedding bands again, reported that Kim flew to the midwest last minute, in an attempt to get closure with Kris.

While Kim is already back home in LA, I wonder if she plans to “lie low,” until the divorce drama blows over. What do you guys think, was this quickie trip to visit Kris a smart move on her part?
