Apparently Kris felt ‘ambushed’ by ‘Good Morning America’ in this morning’s (Dec. 9th) interview on the show. Hmm! Can you believe that?
Apparently, he was stunned when interviewer Josh Elliot, relentlessly questioned he and his mom, Deborah, about how he felt about the marriage, his split and whether he still loves Kim. Can you believe this?
The source claims Kris only agreed to do the GMA interview to promote his charity , The Kris Humphries Foundation, which helps disadvantaged kids, and his mother’s special holiday cookies which she bakes in a later segment on the show with the Taste of Home magazine editor-in-chief.
Kris is “livid” about the Kim Kardashian grilling, says TMZ.com, BUT, we’re not buying that Kris is an innocent victim here.
A spokesperson for GMA assures us that “there were no ground rules” for the interview. And after all that has happened to Kris since Kim filed for divorce, he was hardly born yesterday.
He appeared completely prepared to seamlessly evade all of Josh Elliot’s direct and indirect questions about his Kim Kardashian experience and so did his mom. In other words, someone professional prepared them to do this interview.
Plus, GMA was repeatedly plugging their exclusive interview with Kris all day yesterday on ABC and they announced that Kris would answer questions about Kim. So he had to know he’d be asked.
My guess is that Kris absolutely wanted promote his foundation, promote his own basketball career which he happily discussed in the interview and he wanted to support his mom. He knew he’d face the 3rd degree about Kim, but he figured he could deflect it AND he did.
So I doubt he is really livid. It was a win/win for both he and GMA. They got his first interview and ratings, he got promotion and he avoided breaking his pre-nup confidentiality agreement. Do you agree, HollywoodLifers?
