Kris Humphries' first his live interview since his split from Kim Kardashian wasn't exactly the juicy dish we were hoping for. Instead of talking about his gossip-worthy divorce on ABC's Good Morning America Friday, the NBA player chatted lightly about his career baked cookies with his mom, Debra Humphries.
Asked how life is going for him these days, Humphries stuck to the basics. "It's going good," he said. "I'm excited to be close to playing basketball. In the off season, I've doing a lot of work with my foundation, spending time with my family, working on my game a lot."
No mention of the Kardashian clan, no matter how often Today correspondent Josh Elliott tried to get Humphries, 26, to open up about his personal life. Humphries and his mom appeared on the show to bake cookies for a segment for Taste of Home magazine.
So how has the reality-show-paparazzi-filled experience been for the soon-to-be Kardashian ex? "It's been different," said Humphries. "But through everything I've just focused on family and preparing for basketball. Basketball is something I take really serious and I continue to do that. You know, just moving forward."
And as for his decision to file for an annulment, Humphries explained: "I'm really right now focused on basketball and other things will take care of themself, you know. For most people camp starts today, 4 p.m. Hopefully I'll be on a team soon and ready to go."
Humphries reluctance to elaborate is not surprising considering he reportedly has an ironclad prenuptial agreement that prevents him discussing aspects of his short-lived marriage, Us reports.
Mama Humphries didn't have much to add either.
"I think for us the important thing is to stay close as a family through the ups and downs that come," said Debra. "Our faith in God carried us through all these times. We try to focus on being thankful for things and being positive."
But does Humphries still love Kim? He chuckled awkwardly and replied, "I'm focused on just what I can control, which is being ready to play ball and supporting my mom and her cookie baking."
