The Reality of It All: Abe Gurko Comments on “What’s Behind Kim Divorce”

Abe Gurko had a great commentary on what’s going on behind Kim Kardashian’s divorce. Truly he takes a big shot at the reality series and all things Kardashian. It’s about how this divorce might be turned around and monetized. The free publicity isn’t hurting at all. While Kim’s mom Kris claims that they didn’t make cent off the wedding, they sure had help paying for a nearly 2 million dollar wedding. I guess you could say that the Kardashians are helping to support the economy but I think the reality show versus the reality of life may have tweaked their brains and how it coincides with the reality of everyone else. It’s one thing to be Kate Middleton who waited 9 years to get married to Prince William and the resulting paparazzi blitz will always be there. At least Kate tries to have a real life . Can’t imagine that Kim Kardashian even tries to do that with flying in their private planes.

Here’s an excerpt from Abe’s blog post– and I am glad that I waited till today to post it because the Kardashians are talking — carefully trying to control the negative press and the incumbent offers involved that have already started popping up. (see Abe’s post)

Here’s my question. Not, why did they get married in the first place? Rather, will Kim rake in more money from the divorce than what she netted from the wedding? And if so, which ding-dong companies are lining up to sponsor the divorce? Will Range Rover provide cars to get her to the court proceedings? Surely there is a fashion brand that wants to sponsor her butt for when she goes on the stand and boo-hoos about their “irreconcilable differences”. Though that is a perfect opportunity for Kardashian Kollection @ Sears, however what judge would not frown on a weepy bride wearing a skin-tight, leopard-print Hoochie Mama dress? I have one thing to say, well, more than one, but, here goes: Shame on everyone for questioning gays for wanting to get married while straight people like Kris and Kim make a mockery of the institution of marriage. It is quite fitting that the split happened on Halloween because it was a cold day in hell that two heat-seeking missiles or, if you prefer, money-grubbing publicity hounds get to concoct a sham marriage designed for personal financial gain and monopolize the top stories in the news. Breaking Newzzz as it were.
Kris Humphries said he was blindsided by the split and garbled, “I am committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents.” Operative word “covenant” since he actually got into bed with the three Witches of Eastwick, rather just one solitary wife. Now that virtually every moment of the Kim Kardashian’s life is committed to being on-camera, there is no “there there” when it comes to happily ever after. Imagine what goes on behind (get it) closed doors at the Kardashian Kastle. I’d love to be a fly on the wall to hear the conversations leading up to Kim filing for divorce while Kris was not suspecting a thing. “Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble.” Kim reminds me of the Golden Calf and the idolatry of the Jews, freed from slavery in the dessert. So too is our moronic public that follows Kim’s every move. Those who fawn over her every Tweet will no doubt sob at the prospect of Poor Little Kim’s conundrum as to whether she should return the two million dollar engagement ring to Kris?

Thanks to Abe Gurko for letting me put this in context. Stay tuned for more comments from experts about what’s going on with this monumental press disaster. There’s a lot more to come from the Kardashians but after the couple of “expert” commentaries, you better believe I won’t be saying another word about it. I don’t even watch reality TV and I know what the difference is between reality TV and reality as in real life.
