THG Asks!

Welcome to THG Asks, where two of our experts debate topical issues in the world and you vote for the winning argument!

Today, in the aftermath of the Kourtney and Kim Take New York season premiere , THG Asks this crucial question:

Was Kris Humphries in on the divorce drama?

YES by Hilton Hater

It's konceivable that Kris Humphries was klueless about Kim Kardashian when they first started dating.

Granted, she had gone out with numerous professional athletes before. And, yes, her sex tape has likely been viewed by more people than attend New Jersey Nets home games.

I could maybe buy that Humphries was so focused on improving his post-up game that he hadn't signed online in two years, even if her family sold out long before LeBron James.

Still... you want me to believe that this basketball player - who was aware his league was headed for a lockout and he'd be missing multiple paychecks in the near future - didn't comprehend what he was getting into after a first date swarmed by paparazzi?!?

Or when his proposal was filmed by E! cameras?

Or when his wedding was turned into a four-hour TV special?

I'm sorry, but I can't imagine Kris really thought Kim would simply move to Minnesota, pop out a few babies and the couple would live happily ever after, tabloid-free.

As the old adage goes: It takes two to tango down the aisle, feign affection, pocket millions, get divorced 72 days later, cry a river in public and laugh all the way to the bank.

NO by Free Britney

With all due respect to my Kardashian expert kounterpart, Kris Humphries looked absolutely mortified last night, and I doubt he's that good of an actor.

In my view, the big oaf was likely seduced by Kim's voluptuousness and lavish lifestyle and didn't realize what he was getting into until it was too late.

I put nothing past Kim or her "momager" Kris Jenner. Those people have fewer scruples than I have patience for people who use the term "momager."

I hate myself right now, but not as much as Kris (H.) was hating life when he walked in on a naked dude teaching Kourt yoga (and E! writers high-fived).

The man got played. Plain and simple. Humphries was needed to give Kim a fairytale wedding, then hit the bricks ASAP, as her brand is more valuable when she's single.

Everything about Kris, from his mannerisms last night, to his actions after getting dumped, to his assertion that Kim will be irrelevant one day, indicates he had no clue.

How could he fall for it? Kim is probably a nice girl in private, but that's the thing. There is no private when your career is a never-ending reality show and a 24/7 shill.

Naively, he assumed he'd settle into a blissful relatively quiet post-wedding life. Instead, he got an apartment with Scott Disick. No one willingly agrees to that.

THG Asks you ... was Kris in on all this?

The second, scripted season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York kicked off last night, and was impossible to take at face value, given the drama of the past few months.

Because of the overexposure of Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, and the demise of her marriage to Kris Humphries, every scene of this nonsense takes on new meaning.

That said, let's break down the season premiere, THG plus-minus style, as we run down the many signs that Kim's fake marriage was headed for a 72-day flame out:

Kim and Kourt Take New York

Hilariously, the show kicks off with celebrity gossip magazine covers and TV reports discussing the end of their union, weeks before Kim actually left him. Plus 19.

"You're my wife now. It's going to take a lot to get rid of me." - Kris. LOL. Dude, these are shameless, overly made-up phonies do whatever the hell they want and it's all for ratings. You really think you matter to them? Could you not see this coming? Did you not Google your wife or read ANY celebrity news site? Minus 50.

Kim and Kris call each other "husband" and "wifey." AWWWW! Plus 5.

Living together? Not so cute. They had never done so before, and it shows, as Kim like things neater than Kris, who could really give a f--k. "When I see a messy room, it literally ruins my day," Kim says. Literally. Minus 28.

We hate to break this to you, reality TV fans, but not all fairy tales can have a happy ending.

That's the message sent by the following promo for season two of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, which premieres November 27 and which has packaged the Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries divorce into a central storyline for upcoming episodes.

It's almost as though the entire split was scripted just to increase ratings for the season ahead. But there's no way someone as real as Kim Kardashian would do that, right? Watch now to see Kris and Kim fight over his whereabouts and let's all hope and pray that these two make it...

OMG, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian fans. Season two of these sisters' reality show premieres on November 27 and the following clips make the drama look, like, oh so intense.

First, there's Scott Disick complaining about sharing an apartment with his wife, sister-in-law and her husband. It's so sad these people can't even afford two separate places to live!

Then, there's Kourtney wondering what it will be like if she, Kim and Khloe Kardashian are all pregnant at once. From there, we see Kim worried about residing in Minnesota, while Kris comforts her by saying that once she has children, people will stop caring about her anyway. You might say the power forward bricked that piece of advice...

As if the recent Yankees' ousting from the American League Playoffs were not enough, now New York must suffer through this confirmation:

Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian are preparing to take the city once more, as E! debuted the official season two trailer for this scripted series last night. It features the talent-free sisters landing on a roof via helicopter, greeted by Kris Humphries and Scott Disick in tuxedos.

Make plans for the fall right now, Big Apples citizens. These people arrive next month...

It's the moment we've waited for this entire wash of a season: Khloe arrived.

However, we weren't given enough time with the married old gal to measure how much we've missed her. The producers thought it would be a great idea to devote half the 22 minutes to Scott, who had landed himself the May cover of Men's Fitness (whyyyy?).

The remainder focused on Kim's sour puss, a result of the lollipops-and-gummi bears relationship between her oldest and youngest sisters. This isn't a shock, as we've seen Kourtney and Khloe play odd-man-out with Kim for the past four years.

As one of three girls, I'll admit this happens from time to time. But it's clear that the producers were searching for a storyline and know how well Khloe and Kourtney's dynamic is received by the viewers. Tough break, Kimmy. Call up Kris.

She'll hang with you. Scott Disick would do it, but he's too busy dreaming of his Men's Fitness wardrobe. Gucci and Tom Ford and fast cars, oh my!

I spent the first ten minutes gagging thanks to Scott. He saunters into the suite and tells his beloved that Men's Fitness has selected him for their May cover.

Then the jabs begin (even more reason to love Kourtney): Scott doesn't work out, why would they pick him... that sort of thing.

We're fast approaching the point of too much Kardashian (quite frankly, I think we may already be past that point). Ryan Seacrest and his minions need a new formula, because the current one of Kim plus Kourtney and too much of Scott Disick isn't working.

Once upon a time Kris and Co. were a guilty pleasure, and we'd happily wait around for Khloe to tip Kourtney upside down like a teapot. 

Here in the city that never sleeps, though, the viewers find ourselves dozing off during Kourtney & Kim Take New York. Why are we so bored, you ask?

It's the dynamic between Kourtney and Kim. We've been over this a few times. As sultry (and a bit slutty) as Kim Kardashian might appear on print, she doesn't have much on-screen appeal.

The only time we get a chuckle out of the buxom brunette is when Kourt and Khloe make a joke at her expense. We're all well aware now why Kourtney and Khloe play favorites with one another - it's because Kim is snoozy and a little self-centered.

If we're going to be forced to endure more Kardashian invasion, let's at least bring in the players that entertain us. Even Kourtney's struggling to keep our attention this go-round, and giving Scott more airtime isn't helping things.

It was much better when he tinkered around in the background. Remember season one of Keeping Up With The Kardashians? He was just Kourtney's younger boyfriend, sometimes around for tapings, but oftentimes on the other coast.

Let's revisit that formula, because it worked well for everyone.

Last week Ryan Seacrest debuted Kim Kardashian's new single, "Jam (Turn It Up)" on his KIIS-FM radio show, and last night we had the pleasure of watching it come together on Kourtney & Kim Take New York

It's splendid that The-Dream had a vision and wanted to "try it out," but next time try it out on someone you've heard sing well. Grab a kid from 'Glee,' or browse the posts on YouTube. There has to be someone out there better suited to sing "Jam (Turn It Up)" than Kim-unless you're going for that auto tone feel.

If that's the case, then a job well done (auto tone is hip right now - they used it at the Oscars).

Kim's been everywhere lately (and at almost every awards show, which befuddled even her biggest fans), so it was only a matter of time before she was presented with the option to sing a song. Paris Hilton did it, and she enjoyed moderate success for a short time. So let's try it out on her protege.

We were witness to the moment the idea was born, and wanted to pull Ciara's hair for even mentioning it over lunch. Don't shoot the messenger, you say?

Fine, we'll just lock Ciara and The-Dream up with a raw track of Kim's voice until they admit it was a poor idea.

Sunday, the Kardashian sisters brought us boring birthday drama. On Presidents Day, we were treated to ANOTHER new episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, which means two nights in a row of scripted "dramedy."

How lucky are we? Our founding fathers reached out to us from beyond the grave cheering: "Behold, the American dream. For she who invests time and money in black eye shadow and bandage dresses will prosper."

There are so many elements that make this Kardashian installment much blander than the others; KKTNY is missing key characters who make each 22 minutes pop.

We were able to withstand only two Kardashians in Miami because of the oldest-youngest sisterly dynamic (and be honest, nothing is cuter than seeing Khloe rock Kourtney like a baby).

There was a repertoire between those two that is lacking with Kim and Kourtney. No wonder Kourt had Scott move into their abode. This setup is boring even the stars! 

Where's Kris in her inappropriate outfits, sneaking cigarettes and red wine after a hard day of pimping out her 600 offspring? Can we pan the camera west to catch a cozy moment between Rob and Lamar? We'll wait until spring, but we're not thrilled about it.

For now, we'll sit through the rest of the season and rip to shreds the stellar scripting of Kourtney & Kim Take New York.

We learned a few days ago that the Kardashian family grossed $65 million in 2010, and guess what? We're alllllllllllll to blame. You, me, the little girl clutching her copy of Kardashian Konfidential. They're an intriguing family, that bunch.

What started out as another reality show in 2007 has snowballed into an enormous empire made up of slutty clothes and sexually-charged commercials.

Somewhere in a holding cell, Paris Hilton is seething.

Sunday on Kourtney & Kim Take New York, Kim ushered in year 30 with a heavy heart. The-one-with-the-derriere says she imagined herself married with kids by this milestone. Instead she's a bona fide sex symbol/entrepeneur rolling in cash.

This is not a deviation I would spend my birthday moments crying over.

I'd be too busy simultaneously patting myself on the back while throwing dollar bills from my hotel room screaming, "I don't have to battle the baby weight and I haven't married the wrong man! AND I just bought myself another Birkin!"  

Birthdays are difficult for a lot of us. Yet Kim's birthday is treated as a national holiday in the land of Kardashian (population: pretty much everyone). Kim walks into her suite at the Smythe to find the dining room table covered in gifts and flowers.

The viewers were hoping for a little more gratitude, but were prepared for a puss. Kim searched the table for flowers from a cute guy, but all she found was expensive crap from every sort of platonic relation possible. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
