This past weekend, you did the right thing and went to Minnesota to apologize to Kris Humphries and his family, but now it’s time to apologize to your fans.
Kim, you convinced us your wedding was a dream come true, that you had met your Prince Charming and you were on your way to happily ever after…
No one begrudged you supposedly making money on the nuptials because that’s what celebrities do.
But when you pulled the plug on your vows and filed for divorce — such a completely final act — you really lost the confidence and empathy of so many of your fans.
Then disappearing to Australia the day you filed for divorce and letting your mom Kris Jenner become your spokesperson, didn’t help matters, especially when Kris insulted Kris Humphries by implying that he’d been an “Indian Giver” to want his $2 million engagement ring back. Her choice of words was unfortunate, as well as offensive to Native American groups!
Now it’s time to verbally speak out about what went wrong. Posting on your blog site that “it just didn’t turn out to be the fairytale I had so badly hoped for. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed into something too soon,” isn’t enough of an explanation.
We’ve all been in relationships. Most of us women think about getting married since we’re little girls. We know that committing to a marriage is a very serious thing. It requires thought and consideration.
It’s very hard to understand how a 31-year-old woman could have known the man she was marrying so little that she could also know that their relationship was unsalvageable after 72 days — much of it lived in front of a reality show camera.
That’s why people have been so cynical. How could you absolutely know, Kim, that Kris Humphries — who you were desperately in love with when you walked down the aisle — should be so unceremoniously cast off so soon?
No counseling. No time out to spend time together. Instead, you dropped the divorce paper bombshell and then boarded a plane to go to the other side of the world.
You really need to sit down with someone like Katie Couric, as a special, and pour your heart out. But be kind to Kris. This was YOUR mistake. Kris is still in love with you and wants to make his marriage to you work.
You really need to open up your heart and be as honest as you can possibly be.
Your fans will forgive you if you can make us understand AND you only play the blame game with yourself and NOT your soon-to-be ex-husband.
What do you think, Hollywoodlifers?
