If Kim Kardashian Can’t Find Love, Are We All Doomed?
“Oh no! If Kim Kardashian can’t have a fairytale then how could I ever hope to?” I’ve seen many distressed tweets and facebook statuses over Kim Kardashian’s divorce and how, naturally, that means impending doom for all relationships everywhere. I think it’s incredible how closely people follow her every move. Yes, she’s really pretty, but she never even had a great song (that I know of) or popular movie (well, not in theatres at least). I also don’t understand why there is such shock that she’s getting divorced. Isn’t that just what famous people do? See, e.g., Heidi and Spencer, Britney and Kevin, etc. I actually didn’t even know she was getting a divorce until I heard on the radio that if you break down how much money they made for the wedding (all the coverage rights sold for a LOT) over the life of their marriage, they made over $1000 per hour. Wow.
I read (only because I was looking for information for this article- I swear) that many people think the whole marriage was just a media ploy from the start. I think she already had enough fame and money to want to go through the hassle of a fake marriage just for more fame and money, but maybe. Only dating for four months before getting married could definitely mean it was a hoax, but it could also mean that after 72 days of marriage it seriously just wasn’t working. How much can you really know someone in four months? However, on a side note, I was waitressing once and saw the CUTEST elderly couple in the world. They were in their 80s and holding hands across the table and cracking up at each other’s jokes. On their way out I asked them what the secret was to such a happy marriage, and the man told me their story. Sixty years ago he walked into a Halloween party, saw her, and just knew. They got married two months later and have been a happy couple ever since! How cute, right? Sorry Kim, you have nothing on a cute story like that.
I feel bad for the companies who sponsored different aspects of Kim’s wedding, or gave her huge breaks on various items. She apparently got ridiculous deals on her hair, the dress, cake, etc. Even her ring cost them only a fraction of it’s $3 million value. I’m sure all these companies thought they would get so much advertising out of it, but who wants to look at their wedding pictures or video anymore now that they’re already getting divorced? I’m sure all these companies thought their items would be seen in magazines and on television for longer than two months. Then again, I wouldn’t be surprised if in another 72 days we’re reading “Kris wins Kim back!”
