From my perspective, being a celebrity doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re always powerful. Let’s take Kim Kardashian for example. She’s attractive, has her own reality shows, and a clothing line. Basically her name is an empire. However, these past few months have been rough for Kardashian after problems with her 72-day NBA husband Kris Humphries became out of her power to fix. There were already rough patches in the beginning before the wedding such as Humphries being late for wedding plans, Kim having a hysterical breakdown after losing her earring, and Kim’s sister’s strongly disliking Humphries.
Things between the married couple only got worse in their new reality show Kim & Kourtney Take New York. After the first episode was aired, Humphries was already shown moving back to Minnesota to focus on his NBA career. By Halloween time this year Kardashian filed a divorce against Humphries due to “irreconcilable differences.” Humphries was shocked at the decision because it seemed as if the press knew about the divorce before he was even informed. He told sources, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.” This clearly did not change Kardashian’s mind because she finalized the papers within the days ahead. Since the new show Kim & Kourtney Take New York foreshadows what will happen for the ex-couples relationship, it’s interesting to see how powerless Kim feels about having a family with Humphries. Kardashian constantly stresses how she’s now 30 and needs to start her life, (aka have kids with Humphries) but Humphries would rather take it slow. He even told Kardashian that by the time she has kids, no one is going to care about her. Imagine how powerless Kim felt after that jab.
Kim’s own mother Kris Jenner (in this past weekend’s episode) thought that she wasn’t ready for kids. Jenner expressed that even though her daughter has a successful career, does not mean that she’ll have the power to maintain her famous celebrity job along with taking care of a baby. She’s known as the most successful Kardashian sister, and with a baby on her hip, it will really slow down her celebrity image.
