'KKTNY' Never Managed To Turn Kris Humphries Into The Husband From Hell

Mon, January 30, 2012 4:09pm EDT by 40 Comments

Reports that ‘KKTNY’ would be re-edited to portray Kris Humphries as a mega-villain were either just plain wrong, or it simply was impossible to paint Kris as a horror husband .

Now that we’ve seen the KKTNY finale, we know the worst accusation that can truly be revealed about Kris Humphries as a husband was that he was clueless or shall we say “klueless?”

Even though Khloe Kardashian comforts a supposedly distraught Kim over her marriage in a phone call in the finale by telling her “everyone knows how badly he treats you,” there’s absolutely no evidence to support that statement.

Kris’s crimes in no way add up to treating Kim badly. If anything, it’s Kim who has treated Kris badly by not being emotionally honest about how she feels with him for weeks as the show progresses.

Kris is not guilty of any of the biggies that would merit being dumped, then blindsided with divorce papers in the press before he even knew he was being divorced.

#1:  He never cheated! He never ever glanced at another woman, as far as we ever could see for the entire time he was married.

The one instance when he went to a club without Kim was for a paid public appearance, and he spent most of his time babysitting Scott Disick to make sure he didn’t drink too much.

The other time women even came close to him was when he and Scott threw a small party in their Gansevoort Hotel suite when Kim and Kourtney Kardashian were out of town on business. Now, of course, the party was filmed for E! cameras, so it was hardly behind Kim’s back — and there was definitely no funny business going on!

#2: He was never physically, verbally or emotionally abusive to Kim! Hands down– none of this went on.

He never played games with her head. If anything, he was an open book! Most of the time, Kris looked like a little in-love puppy dog, just waiting for Kim to throw him some bones of affection. Every time she confronted Kris about an issue she was having, Kris agreed to do better.

After Kim finally told him she was unhappy in the finale, and that she felt “dead inside,” he softly responded, “I’ve been so worried about staying in shape because of basketball — and it is important — but I’ve got to make it a priority to spend more time with you; you’re a priority with me.”

Since Kris didn’t cheat on or abuse Kim, he’s not a “villain” per se. The most that Kim can toss at him is that “he’s annoying.” She finds him annoying when he clinks his glass at their “romantic” dinner at STK restaurant in NYC — in front of the KKTNY cameras.

But if every woman who found her husband “annoying” from time to time got a divorce, NO ONE would ever stay married! Who gets a divorce over being a little annoyed after just 72 days?

She also didn’t like when Kris disapproved of her meeting with medium John Edward to contact her late father, Robert Kardashian, from beyond the grave.

“It makes me not want to share the details about it with him,” she tells an assistant.

Nor, does she like it when they take a Pilates session together and she complains that it’s hard !

“I’m trying to get a good workout in, and Kim, you’re killing me,” Kris nudges her.

“Well, I’m never working out with you ever again,” Kim retorts and storms off.

So is there any other “divorce-able evidence” against Kris that we see in the show? More examples of how he’s treating Kim badly as Khloe says?

Well, he is annoying to Jonathan Cheban — questioning his sexuality— but we don’t know if that episode was set up for drama, and if Kris merely “played” his part.

In any case, Kris simply can’t be tarred with the husband from hell label, that celebrity newsweeklies used to describe him.

No, but he did come across as increasingly confused by the emotional coolness and distance of the woman he married and was still in love with.

It was actually heartbreaking to watch Kim basically shoot an arrow through his heart, when she was asked by Kourtney:  “What was the peak of living here in NYC?” at the end of the show, and Kim replied:  “I loved seeing Mason every day.”

You could literally see the hurt in Kris’ eyes. When he responded to Kim, it was to say: “I wanted Kim’s to be –- living with my husband, but she just made mine change.”

Are those really the words of a villain?

I agree. Kris Humphries was no perfect husband (that’s for sure), but he was the only one at least trying to make it halfway. I can’t count how many times she cried and whined over her stupid earrings or broken nail and he would just sit there like “seriously?”. Not only was she an overdramatic little brat, but she also constantly was on him all the time about every little thing like he was her son or something. And Kourtney does the same thing! The only sister who doesn’t treat her husband like a little kid is Khloe and she only knew Lamar for what, a month?

I think in the end they were two completely different people. Kim is a workaholic, super uptight, very clear on what she wants and how she wants it, very materialistic, a romantic, while Kris seems to be more laid-back and family-like, and he repeatedly said that Kim was too materialistic and that he would never own something that he would cry over if he lost it.

Again, not the best guy in the world. But Kim was defiantly the villain in this marriage.

the whole time in NY Kim was all about business. most of the family time she had was spent with her sisters. she was never open with Kris. she should have taken a few months off as newlyweds WITHOUT the cameras to enjoy/figure out any issues they might have. kind of strange how the finale ended at the height of drama.

Seriously, though?

Look, nobody is saying that Kim is innocent. Yes, she should have tried to work out her marriage instead of jumping ship at the first sign of trouble. But they’re both culpable.

Kris was sharp-tongued, rude, and inconsiderate. He would say mean things about Kim and her family, and while he was occasionally sweet, he spent the bulk of their marriage (well, what was seen on TV) being obnoxious.

He was like this beforehand, and Kim should have had sense enough to realize this may have been problematic. Kris had doubts about proposing, and even marrying her; he should have paid close attention to that.

It’s Kim’s “fault” in the respect that she didn’t even bother to try, thus breaking her vows to Kris. She thought a “fairytale” wedding, and a “perfect” marriage would fix all of the obvious pain this said human being is harboring, but we could have all saved everyone’s time and money by telling her how this was going to pan out…

They are both immature, emotionally and otherwise, and this was a marriage that should have never happened. Moral: marriage can’t fix your hangups, and if you’re on national TV, it will only confirm your neuroses to the world.

Omg im dying no one noticed the most dispicable thing ever???? I thought a sham marriage before God was the worst till they used john edwards to say her DAD FROM THE GRAVE said, did u learn the first time? Meaning her first marriage was too quick & ended same way. They’re using Dead Dad as a sign that she did it again & to take dads advice beyond the grave. WOW, NO LIMIT smh, im disgusteddddd

Check this out: If she show was NOT edited, she still comes off a shallow and selfish. In contrast, if the show WAS edited, then imagine what they deleted! Read the “6 Reasons…” column, seriously. I think Kris is an oaf, but that pales in comparision to the disrespect he received from Kourtney, Kloe and his own wife! Those people who defend Kim- REVERSE THE ROLES! What if Kris H. told her she couldn’t move her stuff to his place. What if he flip-flopped on kids after starting the subject? What if HIS sister pulled that crap on Kim- toilet paper, snake, putting Mason’s play area near their room despite them requesting to move it, making fun of him…I could go on. Kim was NO SAINT and did not spend any time with him. What’s worse is the people Kim calls family didn’t even give her advice! Pathetic…

The date scene… It seems like they should be able to have a REAL date without cameras just once! Hey, we just got married, can we chill the cameras just a little so I can have an unedited dinner with you and really talk?? Poor Kris H.

KKTNY did not make Kris Humphries look like a bad husband. It made him look like a complete idiot. For 72 days, your new wife was not happy with you and spent no time with you or your family. Kris Humphries is a joke.

Also, KK didnt have to make KH look like the husband from hell. He did that to himself. And from these articles u can clearly see who Bonnie favors. And I always thought one thing about good jouurnalism is u have to remain non–judgemental about the subject u r writing about.

Remember Kris did not pay of tabliod magazines, bloggers ,fake scenes, do voice-overs to cover lies with spin to look like a victim. Some people think it is right to point out the truth and not spin. Just keeping it real. He did not abuse her, she physical abused him. Perez has now woke up to her lies, other tabloid magazines and bloggers they once paid off are now turning on them. Money can not buy the truth. She should have stayed with her husband, he was her saving grace. People finally saw her as respectable. She flushed that down the tiolet with the rest of her dignity. Blessed

Kim never had the “divorce” conversation with Kris while they were in NY. He attended her birthday parties in NY and LV at then end of October, and days later she announced the divorce in the press and left for Australian. She never did tell him face to face, and they didn’t agree to it either. Otherwise they would have issued a joint statement like so many other celebrities(including Kobe and Vanessa Bryant and Seal and Heidi) who did talk to each other. Kim dumped him after “seeing how badly he treated her family” while editing the show. That was the original reason given. She really hurt him. She got through the wedding and then shut down. She had made no room in her life, in her mind, or in her heart for a real husband. She thought they were Ken and Barbie and she could put him away and take him out to play whenever she wanted.

All this guy haa to do is say something once and kk is damned. He has been a bully/comtrol freak from day one. Very selmdom did he say anything nice when he opened his mouth. U could see this n their BoraBora trip. He was always obnoxious. Like when he made the comment about when she kids no one will probably care about her. And the way he treated jonathon. You didnt see kh treating a big guy like that. He practically did eveerything he could to hurt kk relationships w/her friends & family so he could get her to give up her life & move to MInn. It would’ve eventually bcome physical. If there is any woman who would b willing to liive like this I wwould luv to hear from u and what u have to saay about it. O lets not forget his male domineering attitude & the fact that he married her for money and notiriety.

@ Teejay….say WHAT? Your post made absolutely no sense. Obviously he didn’t treat her “bad” otherwise she wouldnt have married him. Who in their right mind would marry someone that was mean to them or their family? Maybe a complete idiot. She knew what she was doing all along and now the truth is coming out.

Bonnie you are sooooo right. Dead on! Kris was so totally in love with Kim. Willing and showing her how much he wanted to be the best husband to her. Even his last ditch effort to move with her and build their dream house did not work. She never loved Kris. I knew he would be vindicated. That guy was always very loving and kind. I feel so sad for him. I am cheering you on Kris.

Kris is too nice a guy, that’s why the plan to demonize him back fired. I agree with the article.

What I see is young gullible and unsophisticated versus vicious and egocentric. I’m convinced that he was not aware that the union was a sham for ratings and business deals.

It would be a crime if this guy does not get the annullment he’s asking for. They used this guy to raise the ratings, then they got rid of him when they were done with him and turned around and called him gay. That’s f____d up.

I am with Snoop Dogg he said it you cant make a Ho into a housewife. All men Kim has married or dated there has always been drama later which means Kim is the problem. She uses men to get what she wants that is all she wants $$$$$$ and fame. Thanks so much Snoop for telling the whole world what Kim is all a bout Trash. As for Khloe shut up that big mouth of yours, if one marries a Kardashian then you are married to all of them it is like you can never have a say they pretend to be close and yet they are jeolous of each other.

Bonnie Fuller first I want to congratulate you!!! One of your articles was on the Huffington Post!! Good for you!! Now, as for KKTNY, YOUR SO RIGHT..THEY WERE NEVER ABLE TO VILLIANIZE KRIS HUMPHRIES AT ALL!!! Mainly, because he is genuinely a nice guy! After Kim filed for Divorce, their P.R. team went into swift action contacting celebrity bloggers and paid them to write demeaning things about him and slandered his good name with no merit, but only to convey Kim Kardashian’s message that she was the “victim”. They called him a gold digger, a fame seeker, selfish, annoying, a cheater, a physical abuser, I mean the list can go on!!! But at the end, if all the producers could come up with is what they showed, then that means that once again, the viewers were deceived and manipulated for ratings to watch their show!!! The Kardashians are evil, spineless!! They don’t care about their viewers, all they care is about making money and manipulating their consumers into buying their products and watching their fake shows!!!

Kris seemed like an everyday kind of guy. I think he’s going to make another girl happier, a younger girl. Kim is too old and used up for him. Kim came across as the villian. A vain controlling self absorbed freak, is what she is.

What really bothered me about the last few episodes is that Kim would often have a “smirk” or little smile she would try and conceal before she would start the tears or have a “fake” breakdown.

While I have loved watching the Kardashian’s, I am fed up with Kim’s bad and manipulative behaviors. Afterall, Kim is a grown up woman in her 30’s who has been married before and has had many serious relationships, she certainly should have known better. No excuses unless you are 16!

He’s sarcastic and real. He tells it like it is, no sugarcoating. Kim knew what she was getting herself into. It’s not like he just started acting the way he did after he got married. She obviously doesn’t know that marriage is about the husband AND wife. Grow up Kim! You’re 30, it’s about time for some maturity check don’t you think?!

Ah, yea. And Kim was as sweet as pie? And Kim did exactly the same back to Kris. Kim is 5 years older than Kris and should have known better to marry so quickly, or she is emotionally stunted and just plain stupid and selfish. I believe emotionally stunted, just plain stupid, and selfish.

When Kim wanted Kris to move back from MN to their NY suite to only once again live with Kourtney, Scott, and Mason he said YES
When Kim wanted Kris to attend a welcoming party even though he had to wake up the next morning for a workout he said YES
When she wanted to start a family and told Kris they would NEVER live in MN he said no at first, but then to make Kim happy he said YES
When did Kim ever say YES to him? Kris wanted to move his clothes and other belongings into her house so they could begin their life and she said NO. Instead he had to move his stuff into a storage. Kim needs to grow up, marriage is hard work and it is not a fairytale. When things got tough, she bailed out instead of trying to salvage her marriage. She needs to GROW UP!

I know!!! She so bailed on him. Even when Kourtney suggested that they try it out in a different environment without living with other people, she didn’t even consider that. She wants a man that she can control and give in to all her wishes while waiting on her hand and foot. What she wants is unrealistic! And that is why she’s 30 and single. She may have all the millions, but a spinster’s a spinster no matter how you put it.
