'Reality' check: Which has a longer shelf life -- frozen meat or a Kardashian 'I do'?

For a Hollywood marriage, Kim Kardashian’s 72 days of matrimonial miss were downright average. What’s more, groom Kris Humphries bested fellow NBA star Dennis Rodman by 800 percent, which is an old-fashioned butt kicking if you ask any statistician. But where does this soon-to-be-dissolved union stack against real world quantities? Keep reading…  READ FULL STORY

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce explained by Taiwanese animators -- VIDEO

The devastating news about the divorce of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries has left us with so many unanswered questions: If those two kids can’t make it in this crazy, mixed-up world, who can? Why can’t I remember what I did 72 days ago? Are you there God? It’s me, PopWatch.

Thankfully, Taiwanese animators NMA, who always explain everything in a much clearer way, have come to the rescue. In just over a minute, their latest cartoon accurately pinpoints every major detail from the wedding bonanza and divorce bonanza, including how Kris wanted Kim to move to Minnesota with him (to wear Viking helmets, apparently) and that he was so caught off guard by the divorce (after she coldy alerted him by spelling out “DIVORCE” in rose petals) that he was (literally) steaming mad. Watch the full clip below. Looks so much like Kim it’s uncanny, isn’t it PopWatchers? READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel joins the Kim Kardashian peanut gallery -- appropriately, in a monkey suit

On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the comedian performed his civic duty and addressed the news of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ split. “I thought they’d be together for at least another five to 10 Us Weekly covers,” quipped the funnyman. “I wonder what happens to that 20-karat engagement ring he gave her,” added Kimmel. “You know, if nobody’s using it, I bet it would look great in my belly button.”

Admitting that he was sucked in by “all 11 hours” of Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event, Kimmel gave snarky kudos to the industrious story spinners at E! before airing the (totally fake) promo for the channel’s next special: Kim & Kris Kall It Kwits. See Kimmel betray his fellow K-named kinsmen after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Ripa'd from the airwaves? Kelly and Nick Lachey dress as Kim and Kris as E! faces a tough 'Fairytale Wedding' decision


Savor the image to the right, Kardashi-fans. It may be your last chance to see Kim Kardashian in her Hepburn-inspired wedding gown. Fresh off the news that Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kris Humphries, her husband of 72 days due to “irreconcilable differences,” E! (home to Keeping Up With the Kardashians) is considering pulling all repeats of their four-hour, two-part marital spectacular Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event from the air. And in other news from the bizarro land that results from the collision of reality with “reality,” Kelly Ripa and Nick Lachey dressed up as the presumably happy couple for this morning’s Live! Halloween show just an hour before the divorce was confirmed. See Ripa and Lachey’s unfortunate (but hilarious) costume and learn more about E!’s programming quandary after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' divorce by the numbers: 72 days of marriage equals...

And they said it wouldn’t last!

Okay, so they technically they were right: After a, uh, fairytale 72 days of marriage, Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries. (Plan your new Halloween costumes accordingly!) While credit must be given to America’s royal couple for surpassing the likes of Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra (nine days), Britney Spears and Jason Alexander (two days) and Robin Givens and Svetozar Marinkovic (a reported seven minutes) in the pantheon of shortest celebrity marriages, here’s some other numbers to crunch: READ FULL STORY

Kim Kardashian is starring in the next Tyler Perry movie. Could she possibly be a good actor?

There is no real reason why Kim Kardashian should want to be an actress. The reality TV star/global entrepreneur/sex tape survivor/candy jar enthusiast has made untold kamillions of dollars by playing herself constantly. In the process, she’s turned her coterie of “K”-named blood relations into a multimedia brand. (They’re like ’90s Chicago Bulls, and she’s Michael Jordan; they’re like the X-Men, and she’s Wolverine.) But even with all her tremendous success, Lady K isn’t immune to the come-hither lures of pretending to be someone vaguely different from herself. Thus, EW has confirmed that she will play a supporting role in Tyler Perry’s next movie, The Marriage Counselor. The film is about a married marriage counselor who strays outside the confines of holy matrimony; Kardashian will play a co-worker of said counselor. READ FULL STORY

Would you endorse a president that allows the Kardashians in his household?

With a little over a year until the 2012 Presidential election, the race is already heating up. (In fact, according to Herman Cain’s calculations, it’s about as hot as a pizza oven.) Still, no matter what your political affiliation or how you plan to vote next November, you’ve gotta admit, this latest bit of information could probably help (or hurt) President Barack Obama‘s chances for re-election.

During an interview with People.com, First Lady Michelle Obama discussed, among other things, the TV watching habits and rules for daughters Sasha and Malia. When asked if any programs were off-limits, the the First Lady revealed that the president isn’t so fond of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. READ FULL STORY

'Kim's Fairytale Wedding': Part 2 included an actual wedding...barely!

Last night, the final two hours of Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event aired. And if you managed to sit through three hours and 33 minutes, you were finally rewarded with an actual wedding. But more on that later.

E! packed even more wedding prep into last night’s special leading up to the actual nuptials. Seating charts, catering menus, a bridal shower, and bachelor and bachelorette parties Vegas style. All of which had Kim making this important life observation: “I don’t know how Elizabeth Taylor got married so many times!” So really, part 2 was just a continuation of part 1. But with the wedding right around the corner, Kim finally answered some of the important questions brought up in Sunday’s special. Which Vera Wang wedding dress would she choose? Why choose just one? Let’s go with three. Would she hire Robin Thicke or Christina Aguilera to perform on the big day? Mr. Thicke won the job and was seen serenading the newlyweds during their first dance. Also seen: Rob Kardashian showing off his pre-Dancing with the Stars moves. READ FULL STORY

'Kim's Fairytale Wedding': Was it worth the wait?

Tonight’s E! special Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event was an outrageously elongated affair — and I refer not just to the fact that merely saying its full title would occupy slow-talkers until Christmas 2017.

Despite its two hour length, this evening’s show did not actually cover the nuptials of Ms. Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries, who married way back in August. That will be taken care of in Monday’s companion special, Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event 2: Electric Boogaloo. This show was all about the build-up. Which Vera Wang wedding dress would Kim choose? Could she have real diamonds in her bouquet (remarkably, not a joke)?  Would she hire Robin Thicke or Christina Aguilera to perform on the big day (remarkably, also not a joke)? The result was two hours of wedding prep porn, which at least meant it was a step up from Kim’s accidental excursion in real porn.

Or maybe not. Say what you like about XXX movies but they rarely feature gruesome close-up footage of a woman having elective, jowls-tightening surgery. (Obviously Debbie Does Dallas and Then Has Elective, Jowls-Tightening Surgery is the exception which proves the rule here). But one of the show’s major plot strands found Kim fretting while her mother Kris went under the knife and whatever other terrifying tools were surgically utilized onscreen after I covered my eyes with my hands and tore out my ear drums with my toes.

Speaking of tools, the show’s running time allowed plenty of space to explore the not-all-that-relevant binge eating of Kim’s sibling Rob who (just in case there wasn’t quite enough conspicuous consumption on display) was seen wolfing down a vast amount of Mexican food with Christian Bale-in-American-Psycho lookalike Scott Disick. Meanwhile, Humphries was routinely railroaded over wedding plans by Kim and Kris and routinely bad mouthed by Kim’s sister Khloe, who was determined he sign a prenuptial agreement. Oh, yes. Humphries is a professional basketball player but it is his wife who is the rich one. That’s how much money the Kardashians have.

And they just keep on getting more of it. The newlyweds are rumored to have made a(nother) fortune from televising their wedding and in tonight’s show Khloe and her husband Lamar Odom discussed their then upcoming appearance in a commercial that was actually screened in the course of the episode’s many, many ad breaks. As it happens, another advert was for the new Johnny Depp movie The Rum Diary.  The film is adapted from a novel by Hunter S. Thompson who once described the TV business as “a cruel and shallow money trench.” In arguably related news, the second half of Kim’s Fairytale Wedding will be broadcast on Monday at 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT.

Did you watch tonight’s show? What did you think?
