Did anyone watch ‘Kim & Kourtney Take NY‘ last night? The episode took up where last week’s episode left off — after Kim’s new husband, Kris Humphries, packed his bags and moving back to his home in Minnesota where he could live in peace.
It seems that the show’s producers saw no problem with a grown man sharing a hotel suite with his wife, another couple and their screaming kid. So when Kris left, the producers urged Kim to follow her man to Minnesota and bring him back. Because, after all, didn’t she marry him for the show?
When Kim arrived in Minnesota, Kris said, “I’ve missed you: I haven’t missed living with everyone — crying babies, weirdo yoga teachers. I’ve been able to focus here … I’m chilling.”
When Kim insisted that Kris return to NY with her, the NJ Nets player explained that in the off-season he still had to train to keep in shape. And his trainer is there in Minnesota.
We watched the manipulative Kardashian use her feminine wiles to goad Kris into returning to NY to live in a cramped suite with his wife, his sister-in-law, Kourtney Kardashian, her baby daddy, Scott Disick, and their kid.
There’s a reason the show is called ‘Kim & Kourtney Take NY‘ rather than ‘Kim, Kourtney & Khloe Take NY‘. It’s simple: Khloe has way too much respect for her husband, Lamar Odom, to ask him to leave the city where he trains in the off-season, to live in a hopeless situation just for television ratings.
At one point during last night’s show, Kris had an epiphany: he noted that Kim was out of her element in Minnesota, and she was cooking for him. Something she apparently had never done before. Kris wondered if someone put her up to doing all of those things for him.
The look on Kim’s face was priceless.
For a fleeting moment, Kris Humphries almost came to his senses and figured out he was being used all along. A little more than a month later — when the show’s filming had wrapped — Kim filed for divorce.
