Kim Kardashian admitted to her mom, Kris Jenner, last night on ‘KKTNY’ that she wasn’t happy in her marriage to Kris Humphries, but two body language experts tell us she seemed like she was acting. Do YOU think it was fake?
We’re all reliving Kim Kardashian‘s split from Kris Humphries now on Kourtney & Kim Take New York. However, two leading body language experts tell HollywoodLife.com judging from Kim and Kris Jenner‘s interactions on the show last night, the whole relationship was staged.
“There’s something in my relationship that I feel isn’t right,” Kim told her mom when they were in Dubai. “I’m learning a lot of things about him that I didn’t really know before. And married life isn’t what I thought it would be with him…I keep thinking something is off.”
“[This seems] completely phony, staged and emotionless for someone who is not happy about a marriage,” Dr. Lillian Glass tells HollywoodLife.com. “Plus, Kris’ dialogue is just that like of a bad actress giving bad dialogue. There is too much pause time between the answers and her reaction shows no surprise and a matter of factness monotone — much like Kim’s indicative non-genuineness.”
World renowned body language expert Patti Wood and author of”Success Signals” explains, “When Kim tells her mother, ‘I feel a sense of relief that I am here,’ her words don’t match her body language or her [vocal inflection]. Notice as she makes that statement how her torso doesn’t move, her eyes get big, and she looks tense. When someone says the word ‘relief’ they typically show a sign of relief, by either taking a breath, closing their eyes or relaxing their body. Kim does none of this. And she stresses the word relief like she is reading it from a script.”
She adds, “Kim’s body language is not normal with regard to what she is saying. At one point when she says, ‘There is something in my relationship that I just feel…,’ she looks directly into the camera for split second when she says the word ‘relationship’. It looks like a dramatic staged pause and ‘look at me’ eye movement to create drama, rather than a first time self disclosure to her mom.”
Not only do the experts think Kim seemed fake, they were suspicious about Kris’ attitude as well.
“She is smiling while her daughter is sharing this terrible news,” Wood says. “This is not normal. She isn’t leaning toward Kim to show her support or trying to comfort her in any way. You don’t even hear her gasp or act surprised when Kim shares this sad news about her marriage. Kris’ mouth looks tight like she is holding it together and like the whole interaction was planned.”
