Today, THG Asks: Will Kim Kardashian's marriage last?
YES by Free Britney
Kim Kardashian's wedding was scripted nonsense. We know this.
That is merely who Kim Kardashian is, though: A bland, better-than-average looking chick makes a living from her celeb status despite being expressionless as drywall and devoid of talent.
Nowhere in that job description does she have to be incapable of love.
I'll be the first to ridicule Kim's shameless attempt to kash in on anything. When I read that Kris Humphries' family was appalled at the spectacle of the wedding, I wasn't the least but surprised. But that's precisely why it WILL last.
No one would marry Kim Kardashian for her fame (and become a joke in the process). He's got his own money (and she's got a prenup). He's in it for the only reason anybody could possibly put up with this 24/7/365 charade: Kim's heart.
Congrats. Bring on the sex tape.
A moment Kim and Kris will never forget ... thanks to E!
NO CHANCE by Hilton Hater
There's no way Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries will last. Here's why:
The power forward is a free agent. Coming off a career season, it's unlikely New Jersey (his previous employer) will match his contract demands.
Neither will any other team in a major market.
The Los Angeles Lakers have plenty of size; the Knicks are keeping their salary cap options open for Chris Paul or Dwight Howard; Miami is enough of a circus without employing Humphries in the same city that is now also home to Reggie Bush; Blake Griffin plays the same position for the Clippers.
I foresee Humphries going someplace like Houston, or maybe Utah. And, come on, you can't honestly say Kim Kardashian will stay with a man who lives outside an entertainment news hot spot. It's unlikely Star Magazine could even find Salt Lake City on a map.
Indeed, at some point, the NBA lockout will end and, with it, so will this farce of a marriage. And we all know what that means: a divorce special on E!
THG Asks you ... will it last?
