She filed for divorce today.
First of all, I have to say that, no I don't get all my celebrity news from TMZ. Though this link is from that website, the story has broken nationwide.
Second, I have to admit to the fact that Keeping Up With the Kardashians has in the past been a guilty pleasure of mine. Mostly because Khloe is unbelievably hilarious. That, and they make me feel normal, which is pretty damn hard to do.
Third, I take issue with any family that leeches off the fame of one person, especially one who's really only famous because she was in a home-made porno a while ago. Yes, their dead father was one of OJ Simpson's defense attorneys, BUT that isn't what made Kim famous. Trust me on this one.
Fourth, $10 Million dollars?!?!?! Seriously? Talk about excessive. Yeah, the whole shebang was pimped by the E Network for ratings and all, but seriously??? NO one needs three different one of a kind Vera Wang couture gowns. I don't care who you are. Kate Middleton only wore two dresses when she married William, and she became an ACTUAL princess that day.
|I don't care how expensive your ring is, |
it won't keep his pants on.
Sixth, 72 days? I know that in my marriage, 72 days in was very much still in the honeymoon stage. Hell, we were there for years. If you are so unhappy that you can't fathom trying to work it out in less than 3 months, maybe you should not have rushed into it in the first place. Just sayin.
This whole situation is a mockery of marriage, orchestrated for television ratings. We live in a country that allows this to happen in every state in the union. Straight people can make horrible choices, get married and get divorced and call it good. They can rip everything that marriage means to shreds, destroy any sanctity of the bond, make it a sham. Even sell the rights to a cable TV channel.
But, we tell entire segments of society that they can't commit to life-long partners just because they are the same gender? Seriously?
Straight people: YOU DON'T HAVE MARRIAGE FIGURED OUT. STOP PRETENDING YOU DO.
There is something really freaking wrong with our country if this is okay.
