It seems fair to say by now that Kim's Fairytale Wedding has turned into anything but. Kim Kardashian dumped the man who was supposed to be her Prince Charming, NBA player Kris Humphries, after only 72 days of marriage, and their ongoing divorce battle has lasted far longer than anyone dreamed.
That drama became even more complicated when it was revealed that Kardashian is pregnant with the child of her current boyfriend, Kanye West. Humphries seems to be dragging his feet in the mud even more so now that his not-quite-ex has a baby on the way, and he doesn't see any reason to speed up the process for her sake.
His lawyer, Marshall W. Waller writes, "What is really going on here is that an 'urgency' in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy" is being used by Kardashian as "an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage (to) prematurely set this matter for trial," People reports. Waller adds that the pregnancy is "something (Humphries) had nothing to do with."
Yes. Okay. We get it. Kris Humphries is the wounded party here. The Kardashians tried to bring him into their reality TV world, but he didn't fit -- either because he let his dogs sleep in bed with him or because he's not quite the charmer Kardashian thought he was, we don't care -- and then they cast him out. But really, dude? You're bringing the baby into your game plan? Enough is enough.
To put this saga into perspective, Kardashian filed for divorce on Oct. 31, 2011. That's almost a year and a half ago. At this point, the public perception of Humphries has plummeted, and he's the one making it worse. At first he was just viewed as a fool, but now he is seen as vindictive.
No matter what Humphries does now, he's going to look bad -- but we suggest getting out while he still has some scrap of dignity left. Kardashian is pregnant, she wants to move on with her life, and we say let her. That allows Humphries to move on with his life as well, and that can only benefit him. After all, he's being recognized for his skills in the wrong kind of court right now.
Just think: If he settles this case and moves on, maybe he can get his own reality TV show out of it! Humphries can teach people to develop really drawn out revenge plots against those who have slighted them publicly -- there can even by a celebrity edition (Brandi Glanville could star). It can be called Kris Lives Happily Ever After.
