WIKY Morning Show Nov. 1st
Sometimes the tabloids have it SPOT-ON. And whoever reported that there was already trouble in the marriage of KIM KARDASHIAN and KRIS HUMPHRIES falls into that category. Because Kim filed for DIVORCE yesterday . . . after 72 days of wedded bliss. Her petition cites "irreconcilable differences". It also notes that Kim and Kris had a prenup, and asks that Kris be denied spousal support. (--The Kardashians raked in $65 million in 2010. Kris makes about $3.2 million a year playing for the New Jersey Nets. Of course he'll make less this year thanks to the NBA lockout.)
Kim issued a statement saying, quote, "I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best."
Need a reason for the split? There are about a million of 'em floating around online. One thing we can say with almost complete certainty is that Kim and Kris jumped into this way too soon.
RYAN SEACREST . . . who produces all the Kardashian reality drivel for E! . . . even said, quote, "I've spoken to Kim briefly and she says she's sad and got caught up in all that was going on."
It sounds like Kim is admitting she made a mistake. Although she'd probably never admit she only got married because she wanted to be the center of attention in a humongous fairytale wedding on national TV.
Still, Kris isn't willing to walk away just yet. In fact, he had NO IDEA this was coming. He issued a statement saying, quote, "I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce . . . I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work."
This was Kim's SECOND marriage. She was married to a music producer named Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004 . . . back before she was famous.
Kim is currently on her way to Australia to launch her handbag line . . . then she heads to Atlanta to film that very aptly-named TYLER PERRY movie, "The Marriage Counselor".
(--Here's an interesting stat for you: Kim and Kris' wedding cost $20 million. There were 72 days from the day they said "I do" until the day of their separation . . . which is listed as YESTERDAY.)
(--That averages out to $277,777.77 a day.)
Here's a potential upside to this divorce: Executives at E! are considering yanking Kim and Kris' wedding special . . . which they've been repeating pretty regularly since it first aired October 9th.
Here's the report from Access Hollywood-
Kim also didn't want to change her name--here's the clip:
** Here's a very funny clip from some Spanish commercial that David Hasselhoff did for "Brain Drain 2." This makes about as much sense as the online video of him eating a hamburger!
** There was a wild finish in the San Diego vs. Kansas City Chiefs game last night. With under a minute left, Chargers quarterback Phil Rivers fumbled on the Chiefs' 15 yard line. If he'd held onto the ball, the Chargers would have kicked a field goal and won the game. Instead, it went into overtime.
The Chiefs beat the Chargers 23-20 last night. The game went into overtime, and for the second year in the row, the Chiefs kicked a game-winning field goal on Halloween. Here's the kick.
** Big news for Cardinals fans, as just 3 days after winning the World Series, Tony LaRussa announced his retirement.
** Jet Blue has a public relations nightmare on its' hands after the big blizzard over the weekend. A jet was stranded on the tarmac for 7 hours at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut. Just listen to these clips!
** And, Halloween is OVER. We're now focused on Thanksgiving. And we're only 24 days away from the day after Thanksgiving . . . better known as BLACK FRIDAY.
The website DealNews.com posted a list debunking some of the biggest Black Friday myths . . . here are four of our favorites.
#1.) Myth: Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year. It's not. The Saturday before Christmas is always the busiest day. This year, that's December 24th. Only 35% of people actually go shopping on Black Friday.
#2.) Myth: You have to camp out in front of a store to get the best deals. Yeah, maybe to get a few of the most ridiculous deals you have to camp out. But every year, more and more stores offer their Black Friday sales online as well.
#3.) Myth: Black Friday is the best day to get a new TV. Most of the time, you're better off waiting until December . . . when brands unveil their new 2012 TV models and the old ones get a bigger discount.
#4.) Myth: If you're going to shop online, wait for Cyber Monday. Since most retailers are offering their best Black Friday deals online, waiting a few days until "Cyber Monday" will probably just leave you with the scraps.
