Just 72 Days Of Marriage Kim Kardashian Filed For Divorce From Kris Humphries

31 Oct Kim-Kardashian-Kris Humphries-Wedding-Divorce-100293

After just 72 days of marriage, reality star Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from husband Kris Humphries Monday.

In a statement to FOX411, Kardashian said, “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.”

According to a report from TMZ, the couple was at odds over where to finally settle down. Humphries was reportedly passionate about settling down in his native Minnesota, and Kardashian simply wasn’t going for it.

But TMZ reports that Humphries was adamantly opposed to the divorce and tried desperately to save his marriage to Kardashian.

According to the report, Humphries was unaware that she was filing papers until this morning.

Though their marital bliss was short-lived, the reality star is not seeking an annulment and will list “irreconcilable differences” as the cause, TMZ reported. The couple signed a pre-nuptial agreement and Kardashian is reportedly looking to block Humphries from getting any spousal support.

Kardashian, 31, married the NBA player, 26, at a star-studded Hollywood ceremony August 20. The wedding was estimated to cost upwards of $10 million. Kardashian’s 20-carat engagement ring from Humphries cost $2 million.

Kardashian has reportedly hired celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser, who has previously repped Britney Spears, Maria Shriver and Angelina Jolie.

The couple has been plagued by split rumors for weeks.

Reality Tv World Reeling The News Of Estranged RHOBH Russell Armstrong Found Dead

16 Aug Russell-Armstrong-100293A

The reality TV world is reeling from the news that the estranged husband of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Taylor Armstrong was found dead on Monday night.

Los Angeles County coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter told AP that Armstrong, 47, was found hanging and was pronounced dead at 8:16 p.m. Monday in a home on Mulholland Drive. No suicide note has been found and an autopsy is being conducted.

Taylor, 40, filed for divorce on July 15 from Armstrong, citing physical and verbal abuse. The show frequently showcased their on-air fights and she told People he would sometimes grab her, shove her, throw things at her and pull her air. He told the magazine the show had hurt their relationship.

RumorFix.com spoke to Russell Armstrong last month and he seemed to be struggling to deal with the split and the spotlight.

“This is a devastating time,” he said. “We had a wonderful marriage and I don’t want you to get the impression that Taylor and I are bitter enemies — we’re not. We have a beautiful five-year-old daughter who we both love.”

He added, “The pressure of being in the TV spotlight was pretty overwhelming. It took our manageable problems and made them worse. We are very supportive of each other and love each other. I will support her as best I can moving forward.”

Russell’s lawyer, Ronald Richards, tells TMZ, “I feel bad because his credit cards weren’t working … He had tremendous financial problems.”

Richards adds, “He was also extremely bummed out about the divorce with Taylor. As far as a will, even if he does have a will, they don’t have any assets, so I’m not sure what there would be left to leave. I am extremely saddened … I had no idea he was depressed.”

Singers Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are getting a divorce, PEOPLE Magazine reports.

“This was a very difficult decision,” the couple told the magazine. “It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”

The couple also said they have reached “amicable conclusions on all matters.”

J.Lo’s big announcement isn’t about ‘Idol’

They wed in 2004 and have 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

Story: 35 million reasons why J.Lo might not return to ‘Idol’

Lopez was a judge on “American Idol” last season, but has not yet announced if she will return to the show. In addition to her musical career, she has starred in films including “The Wedding Planner,” “Maid in Manhattan,” and “The Back-up Plan.”

In April, People put her on its cover declaring her the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman.”

The marriage was the third for Lopez, 41, and the second for Anthony, 42. He was previously wed to 1993 Miss Universe winner Dayanara Torres. She was married to dancer Cris Judd and before that, to waiter Ojani Noa. Each of their previous three marriages lasted just a year.

Maria Shriver Filed For Divorce From Actor And Former Calif. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger

3 Jul arnold-schwarzenegger-maria-shriver-files-Divorce-100293

 

Maria Shriver has filed for divorce from actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Shriver cited “irreconcilable differences” as her reason for ending the 25-year marriage, according to her divorce petition filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, a copy of which was obtained for ABC News by its Los Angeles affiliate, KABC.

Shriver is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s two minor children, Patrick, 17 and Christopher, 13, and a division of assets, according to the divorce papers. The couple also have two older children together, Katherine and Christina.

There is no prenuptial agreement, KABC reported.

Shriver and Schwarzenegger announced in May that they were separating after Schwarzenegger admitted fathering a child, Joseph, with a family housekeeper, Mildred Baena, 14 years ago.

Shriver moved out of the couple’s home in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles.

The couple jointly announced in May that they would live apart while “they decide on the future of their relationship. … This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us. After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion, and prayer, we came to this decision together.”

Baena told Hello! magazine in an interview published in June that Shriver had an inkling of her husband’s secret as she heard talk around the house of Joseph’s physical similarity to his father.

According to Baena, when Shriver asked her about her son’s paternity, she admitted that the governor was indeed the father. Reportedly, Shriver then hugged Baena and cried with her, telling her to “get off [her] knees.”

Baena expressed hope for a reconciliation between Schwarzenegger and Shriver, saying Schwarzenegger “is suffering,” adding, “He loves Maria. I hope in time they work things out.”

The marriage always seemed an odd political alliance: Schwarzenegger, 63, is a Republican from Austria while Shriver, 55, is a member of the Democratic Kennedy family.

President John F. Kennedy was her uncle. Her mother was the founder of the Special Olympics. Her father founded the Peace Corps in the Kennedy administration.

Amid prior allegations of affairs that threatened to derail Schwarzenegger’s political career, he admitted that he “behaved badly” and Shriver stood by him. She later went on television’s “Oprah” and denied Kennedy women “always look the other way.”

Shriver has worked as a correspondent for CBS and NBC News and in recent years was devoted to many social causes, including Alzheimer’s disease, which her father, Sargent Shriver, suffered from before his death in January. Schwarzenegger, a former bodybuilder, made his name in films such as “Terminator” and “True Lies.” The couple left the governor’s mansion in January.

Did Crystal Harris Plan To Dump Hugh Hefner At the Alter For A Pay Off?

16 Jun crystal-harris-playboy-cover-2011-111039A

The cancellation of Hugh Hefner’s wedding to Crystal Harris was made official Tuesday, but the original plan was for Harris to wait until Hefner was at the alter before dumping him, according to Page Six.

“She secretly planned to ditch the Playboy mogul at the altar in return for a $500,000 media deal,” the column reports. If the scheme had taken place, Harris would have walked up the aisle before 300 guests at the Playboy mansion, then told him she couldn’t go through with it.

“The wedding was to be filmed for a reality special, and her refusal to marry him would be a sensation. She was looking for a tie-in deal of around $500,000 for the exclusive ‘I ditched Hef at the altar’ interview,” according to Page Six.

Harris’ manager said he had no knowledge of any such deal, but did refute one thing: that she cheated on Hefner with Dr. Phil’s son Jordan McGraw. The manager called those reports “absolutely incorrect” and “total fiction,” and insists the split with Hefner was amicable.

Update: Harris called in to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show and spoke about the breakup.

“We had a long talk about it,” she told Seacrest. “I feel happy and at peace that everything will be ok, and I respect him more than anything. We’re still going to be really close.” You can listen to the full interview here.

Pippa Middleton has reportedly split from her boyfriend.

The brunette beauty – who wowed the world with her stunning figure when she was the maid of honour at her sister Catherine’s wedding to Prince William in April – is said to have called time on her six-month relationship with Alex Loudon after they struggled to cope with her new-found fame.

A source told The Sun newspaper, “Pippa has become very high-profile and it’s put a strain on things. They’re moving in different circles.”

Another insider told the Sunday Times newspaper, “It is common knowledge in their close circle of friends that Pippa and Alex have recently split up.”

Pippa and former England cricketer Alex have not been seen together since the marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at London’s Westminster Abbey on April 29.

In recent weeks, Pippa, 27, has been spotted out with her ex-boyfriend George Percy, who she dated while they were at Edinburgh University together.

The couple – who have known each other for almost 10 years – enjoyed a short break in Madrid, Spain, attended the Queen’s Club tennis tournament together in London and had a three-hour meal together at London restaurant Le Cercle.

A spokesperson for the Middleton family declined to comment.

Maria Shriver Talks About Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Infidelity

17 May Maria-Shriver-How-D0-I-Transition-100283

Maria Shriver is breaking her silence about former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s infidelity. Earlier today, Huliq reported on Schwarzenegger’s statement about his infidelity with a household staff member a decade ago that resulted in a child. Now Maria Shriver is sharing her feelings about her estranged husband.

In a statement to E!News, 55-year-old Shriver indicated, “This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment.”

Earlier Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted to his cheating with a longtime member of their household staff. He waited until he left the office of governor in January to tell Shriver. She moved out of their Brentwood, Los Angeles home shortly thereafter.

Schwarzenegger said, “I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused to Maria, my children and my family. I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.”

The two parties seem to agree on at least one thing – the family does not deserve to suffer because of Schwarzenegger’s indiscretion. The couple was married for 25 years with four children: Katherine, 21, Christina, 19, Patrick 17, and Christopher, 13.

The staff member’s name has not yet been released. It is known the staff member was married and listed her husband as the father of the child. She worked for the family right up until January of this year.

CBS News reports on Tuesday, Patrick expressed his love for his family and recognized the stress when he tweeted, “ Some days you feel like s—, some days you want to quit and just be normal for a bit, yet i love my family till death do us apart.”

Maria Shriver is the daughter of Sargent and Eunice Kennedy Shriver. She is also the niece of President John F. Kennedy. Shriver met Schwarzenegger in Forest Hills, New York at the Robert F. Kennedy Pro-Celebrity Tennis Tournament. They were married at a Massachusetts church in 1986.A friend of Shriver spoke to the LA Times and said the separation was a long time coming. The anonymous source indicated the death of Eunice Kennedy Shriver in August, 2009 marked a turning point. In January, Sargent Shriver died.

The source stated, “There was such a void and when she looked around, she realized her husband could never even think of filling it.” The friend went on to stay Shriver remained in the marriage for so long because, “Part of it is family legacy, part of it is Catholicism. But the most important thing was their four kids.”

On Monday, the couple said in a joint statement they were living apart “while we work on the future of our relationship.

Celebrity/Newsroom

Summary: The split of Maria Shriver from husband Arnold Schwarzenegger is dominating the entertainment headlines right now. Many folks are now saying after-the-fact that they aren’t surprised but in light of multiple groping allegations against the Gubernator and 25 years of Maria sticking it out I think that’s a little overstated.

Maria did post a cryptic video via her YouTube channel back on March 28th asking her fans how they go about transitioning in life. It does seem to foreshadow the events that are now taking place. Here is the clip followed by the full transcript:

“Like a lot of you I’m in transition and people come up to me all the time going, ‘What are you going to do next? What are you going to do? What will you come up with. Boy I hope you’re getting time to relax and think and take a break.’”

“It is so stressful to not know what you’re going to do next. When people ask you, ‘What are you going to be doing?’ And then they can’t believe that you don’t know what you’re going to be doing and then every idea you have you think, “Maybe I shouldn’t do that.” So I thought to myself I’ll ask you guys”

“How do you think you can really have an impact in 2011 in the world when the world seems to be blowing up? And I’d like to hear from other people who are in transition. How did you find your transition? Personal, professional, emotional, spiritual, financial, how did you get through it? What were the three things that enabled you to get through your transition? After you transitioned what do you wish you would have known? I wrote a book a long time ago “Ten Things I Wish I Would Have Known Before I Went Out In To the Real World.” Tell me some things you wish you would have know before you transitioned. You might be able to help me.”

At first the clip has a straight up, “What do you think?” journalistic vibe but Maria has a very downtrodden countenance and the way she tails off in the end suggesting that the advice could help her is really telling. I’ve always thought the world of Maria and I believe her professional work speaks for itself. She’s a tough cookie and I hope she finds her transition to be one that, in the end, proves to be life affirming and a step forward.

Rhianna And Chris Brown Follow Each Other On Twitter After Break Up

Rihanna and Chris Brown are not back together, but they are now connected online. TMZ discovered that the exes have recently began following each other on Twitter!

It’s certainly a big deal that they’ve come this far, considering the terrible conditions of their breakup and the aftermath, but people need not look too far into this amicable move. They’re probably not even really talking, unless you count the ability to read each other’s 140-character musings as “talking.”

And Rihanna was quick to squash any notion that they could be getting back together. When a fan tweeted to ask if she was dating Chris again, RiRi tweeted back “its fu**in twitter, not the alter! calm down.” There you have it.

The Twitter hookup comes a couple of months after a judge lifted a restraining order against Brown, giving him the freedom to have contact with the Barbadian beauty.

So far, it doesn’t seem as though Chris and Rihanna have traded any tweets. And, for the record: Rihanna follows 384 people while Chris follows 644.

Singer Shania Twain Grabs Cover of Redbook Magazine June 2011

6 May Shania-Twain-Redbook-Magazine-402488A

45-year-old singer Shania Twain covers the June 2011 issue of ‘Redbook’ magazine, which will be available on newsstands Tuesday (May 17). Check out these excerpts that were pulled from Shania’s interview!

On betrayal:

“Being betrayed is one of the most valuable lessons life can teach. Now that you are wise to the game, you have the tools to choose your friends more carefully and protect your inner circle from these predators. Wear your scars like a badge. Someone hurt you, you lived through it, and now you can talk about it without rage and revenge in your heart.”

On regaining her voice:

“When my marriage broke down, I got so physically constricted that I couldn’t get any volume out at all. . . . I realized I couldn’t live without singing and had to do something about it. This is why I was like, ‘Just get it all out right now. Clean the pipes.’”

On how she knew husband Frederic Thiebaud was right for her:

“I got to observe Fred going through the same thing I was, and I admired how he handled it. That is where I fell in love with him, because he was so exemplary in every way.” “He’s attentive, brighter than God should ever allow any one man to be, funny, romantic, and cute as heck. Most of all, he shows what he feels, and that’s a quality that could come in any shape or size and be admired—it just so happens that Fred has a very gorgeous shape. He’s too good to be true, only he’s real! Good for me, is all I can say, and I’m loving every minute of it.”
