Kris Humphries Wouldn't Have Allowed A Kardashian TV Show To Ruin HIS BB Career

Wed, April 11, 2012 4:46pm EST by 20 Comments

There’s no way Kris Humphries would ever have put his basketball career in danger like Lamar Odom has, a friend of Kris’s tells Hollywoodlife.com exclusively.

Kris Humphries must be breathing a deep sigh of relief that no matter how badly he has felt since the end of his marriage to Kim Kardashian, he hasn’t let it affect his NBA career.

Now Hollywoodlife.com has learned exclusively that Kris would never have allowed shooting Kourtney & Kim Take New York or Keeping Up With The Kardashians or any other Kardashian TV show, to have derailed him like ex-brother-in-law Lamar Odom, who will not be playing with the Dallas Mavericks for the rest of the season.

“Kris’s career has always been his first priority. It’s all he thinks about when he’s in season,” a friend of Humphries says. “If he felt that filming any Kardashian TV show was a distraction, he wouldn’t have done it. Basketball is his priority.”

And apparently when Kim was engaged to Kris, she agreed that his basketball career had to be a priority for both of them. “Before she was married, she always told Kris, she would live wherever his career took him, (like Khloe did for Lamar),” says the source.

Of course, we know that once Kim was a married woman, her feelings about that changed. Anyone who watched the last season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, knows that Kim took the position once the pair was married that her career was equally if not more important than Kris’s, and that she had no intention of living wherever Kris’s career took him.

“She absolutely refused to live in Minnesota, where Kris is from, for example,” says the source.

Now, we at Hollywoodlife.com feel any woman’s career is absolutely as important, if not more important than her man’s, but this huge issue - competing priorities – sure has to be discussed and agreed upon before you tie the knot!

In any case – Kris, clearly feels like he dodged a bullet that hit Lamar and he’s been having the best season of his career with the New Jersey Nets this year. “‘Thank goodness for basketball,’ he’s been telling friends,” his pal reveals.

Kris Humphries was an unknown until he started dating Kim. No one cared about him or his career.

A woman’s career more important? Yeah…maybe of the man is a stay at home dad or something, but the man should be supporting the family. These articles are so retarded… Hollywoodlife, you really need to get some better stories instead of just copying off of other gossip sites. For example, the whole Khloe miscarriage thing…..don’t be so quick to post an article when you have no clue as to whether it’s true or not. It just makes you look as dumb as the other sites.

She has been married before and is older than him. She should have took control and ask him to go to marriage counseling. He would have went instead of filing for divorce first. She did not because really she did not love him and was already cheating. He compromise by going to New York to film her show. Where was her compromise and having faith in her husband.

For Kris and Kim their were bigger issues. Lamar and Khloe have a more loving, compromising relationship, whereas Kris and Kim’s were more contentious. They were both too headstrong and cared only about their own personal wants and needs. I think Kim became scared of living with Kris, anywhere. As a religious guy the only thing Kris needed to insist on was marriage counseling, at least by 10 days of marriage when he saw things going downhill, even if he had to go alone in the beginning. They desperately needed help. Instead he waited until Kim filed for divorce to decide he wanted to compromise and work it out. Too late.

This is one of the most sensible comments I’ve seen posted regarding the Kris and Kim divorce.

The part about Kim telling Kris she would live anywhere he had to move to, is so not true.She emphatically told kris on keeping up with the Kardashians, before they got married, that she had no intentions of moving to Minesotta, and that part of the attraction she had for him is that he had totally supported and understood her career. That is one of the times he also said that nobody would care about her in a couple of years from now.Get your facts straight guys.

Lisa, I remember the episode you spoke of where Kris and Kim talked about moving to Minnesota.

When the topic came up, Kris said, “WEVE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT THIS AND YOU AGREED TO COME WITH ME IN THE OFF SEASON.”

Of course, the whole thing is scripted so who knows what was really said. But at least we can get the facts staight about what was scripted.

Just by the mere behavior of Kim, my money is on Kris H. He was totally in love with her and it broke me heart to see him get dumped on national tv. She needs to pay for her treatment of him.

I hope he gets her to admit this whole mess was fraud. She did it for ratings. Remember, he doesn’t wanther money nor does he need it.

We were talking about Kim living in Minnesota. I do not
know what was discussed off tv or on Ryan Seacrest. I just remember that scene, before the wedding when Kim refused to entertain moving to Minnesota.It is a fact that she said that then.

Lisa you need to get YOUR facts straight

On Ryan Seacrest radio show Oct 7, 2011 When asked what Kim would do if Kris was drafted to the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team, she says “I would go to Oklahoma City. We’re not going to live a separate life.”

Kim keeps changing her story on KKTNY, in magazines, on talk shows. Who knows what her true intentions are? Hump didn’t seem to have a clue.

Lisa, actually that conversation you are referencing was taped after they were married and discussing where they were going to raise a family. That was also when Kris stated that she had agreed to live in MN part of the year and LA the other part. Kim is constantly changing what she has to say. Within the past month she has said she’s not ready to date, she wants her siterst to fix her up, she’s looking for a businessman or a lawyer, her and Kanye are only firends and then they call to alert tabloids about her leaving Kanye apartment two mornings in a row and they are feeding info to the media on a love match between the two. She also stated in an interview she lost 7 pounds in 6 days with QuickTrin and now she is saying she lost 10 pounds in 7 days using a meal delivery program which she is probably being paid to say. That means within the past month she has lost 17 pounds using two different methods. She promotes a home hair removal system as if it is all she uses and then she is constantly going for laser hair removal. It is really shamefull how Kim misleads and uses her fans to make a buck. She treats them like fools and that is why a lot of them are finally waking up and seeing her for who she really is. It’s about time. I could go on and on but it’s realy not worth wasting my time.

Also Kris never interfered with Kim’s taping her show. She traveled and was away from him for most of the time they were married. I think she probalby told him once the tapeing was done things would settle down to a more normal married life and he believed her and was waiting for that to happen. If this is the case then I don’t see how anyone could have been any more supportive then that. He also spent a lot of his time in New York working out and staying in shape and practicing so he would be ready to play when when the lockout was over. Lamar did not spend his off time wisely by following Kris’ example. Lamar is suppose to be worth over 56 million and will still be paid this year and if what I read he will also be paid for next year even if he does not play. He will not be hurting for money. If he an Khloe are serious about making their marriage work they need to make some decisions on what is really important to them in their future. The need for fame can be very distructive as this family is proving.

When the conversation about Minnesota came up BEFORE the wedding, Kim said living in Minnesota would not be conducive to her career,Kris replied that not too long ago she was just running a boutique in the Valley.He also mentioned, that in a couple of years noone would care about Kim.He again mentioned that point in Kourtney and Kim take New York, when they were having the same conversation. Charming! I do not blame her for changing her mind.

Actually Tina, that conversation did come up twice on two different shows between Kim and Kris, the shows were, Keeping up with the Kardashians, BEFORE the wedding, and Kourtney and Kim take New York, AFTER the wedding.I was referring to the conversation that came up BEFORE the wedding.

I agree Lamar is a whiny baby.

But Kris wasn’t playing in MIN so he needs to drop that line. Kim would’ve lived in NY with him.

I am in Dallas so I watched the whole Lamar Odom saga. People truly bent over backwards to make Khloe and Lamar feel welcome. Mark Cuban And Coach Carlisle covered for him time and again.

I watched the last game he played in and his last play. It was a “what was that?” Sounds crazy but I couldn’t help thinking if it was a play to the reality cameras or an honest play. It just looked like a downtrodden, beat-up attitude kind of play.

The Mavericks are considered to have the best mental health program in the NBA. It’s not like the help wasn’t here if Lamar wanted it to work through his problems.

When Odom said he hated to leave L.A. because Jack Nicholson and stars cheered him, I figured Dallas wasn’t for him. Odom had it made here, though. Too bad he didn’t realize it.

I like how the Kartrashians are glossing over Lamar’s departure from the Mavericks. IMO, no matter if he is aided by the Kartrashians in the future, I can’t help but think that (if Lamar has any pride), he will eventually come to know that he didn’t have to leave the Mavericks the way he did. He should have been able to leave knowing that he gave it his all even if he didn’t intend to play for another team. As for Kris, he simply did not drink the Kartrashian Kool Aid and, ultimately, did not sell his soul. I am wishing him well just as I am wishing Lamar well, but with all the money that he (Lamar) has, he could have access to the best counseling that money can buy. So, I do not have any respect for the way he handled himself. I also firmly believe that any new venture may be affect because he didn’t leave the previous one in the right way.

Kris Humphries has had to endure the public humiliation of his divorce, the constant booing from the public, and being scrutinized from all corners, but the fact that he overcame this to have the best season of his career is pretty commendable and respectful. Granted, he is not the greatest basketball player out there, but he put all the drama behind him and played basketball to only have his best season ever. I believe Lamar is acting like a child who didn’t get his way and has been pouting the entire time. And this is just speaking basketball; I am not taking any sides on the whole Kardashians-Humphries debacle.
