Kris Humphries: "I'm in a Great Place" Post-Kim Kardashian

Kris Humphries may have experienced one of the shortest and most publicized marriages in Hollywood, but he's finally at peace with his split from Kim Kardashian. The NBA player, who was reportedly shocked when his estranged wife filed for divorce Oct. 31, says life is considerably better now than it was last fall.

"I'm in a great place," Humphries, 27, tells Access Hollywood.

In the in-depth television interview, Humphries explains how his family and faith were crucial in being able to move forward after the news of his impending divorce broke. Although the validity of his short-lived marriage is still called into question, Humphries insists that the 72-day union was real.

"To me it was real," Humphries told Access of his marriage, denying speculation that he and Kardashian's marriage was an elaborate publicity stunt. "I would never go through something and do something that wasn't real or I didn't believe in, so I can really only speak for myself in terms of that."

Humphries, who plays for the New Jersey Nets under a reported $7-$8 million one-year contract, isn't interested in a rebound relationship, just in rebounding on the court.

"I'm not dating anyone right now. What do they say, my girlfriend is Spalding?" he told Access, referring to the sporting goods manufacturer. "I always tell people basketball is like my therapy. Some people talk to psychologists, I just need to go play basketball; that's it."
