I’m a psychic.
Well, not really. It didn’t take a psychic to predict that Kim Kardashian’s mega-publicized marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries wouldn’t last.
I predicted it here two months ago.
“The marriage will die and decompose before the public’s eyes,” I wrote.
I wish I could get some enjoyment out of saying, “Told you so.” But my prediction was so sure to come true – and the marriage fiasco so pathetic – that I won’t.
I also wrote that Kris would “suffer public humiliation and buyer’s remorse for marrying Kim.” Again, correct.
Actually, I feel sorry for Kris, a boyish-looking 26-year-old who seems like a nice guy. I suppose he thought that Kim, who is 31, actually loved him. He probably also was enticed by the glitz and glamour of her reality-TV, Hollywood lifestyle.
But once their $10 million wedding was over and they settled into day-to-day life, the union was doomed. The tabloids had a feeding frenzy on the hapless couple.
“As Kim worries she made the mistake of her life, can she save her marriage?” Us magazine screams on its current cover.
The marriage may have just been a publicity stunt for Kim (along with the divorce possibly?). Her mother and sisters are so desperate to stay in the public eye, they may have cooked it up.
“That sound you hear? It’s the institution of marriage banging its head against the wall and asking for mercy,” writes Kat Giantis today on WonderWall.com.
I agree. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian who turn marriage into a sideshow throw dirt on an institution that most take seriously.
Kim, now that you’ve extended your 15 minutes of fame, divorce Kris Humphries quickly and please go away.
Or maybe if you’re serious about sustaining a good, healthy relationship, it’s time you talk to the Millionaire Matchmaker.
