More details emerge in the wake of Kim Kardashian’s decision to divorce Kris Humphries : Humphries won’t get any money in the divorce thanks to the terms of the pre-nup. Humphries also was reportedly “blindsided” by Kardashian’s decision to file papers and said in a statement that he still wants to make the marriage work. Kardashian still has not tweeted about the whole situation and did not show up in the “Dancing With the Stars” audience last night to support brother Rob. (TMZ; People)

Meanwhile, over at E! — where everyone remains both saddened and surprised by the Kardashian/Humphries divorce — execs are reportedly debating whether to continue airing reruns of “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding.” It’s a very serious debate. They’re conducting it Oxford-Style. (New York Times ArtsBeat)

And Andrea Peyser of the New York Post is not mincing any words when it comes to this high-profile split. “It was a pairing born in an agent’s office, and spawned in amoral Hollywood,” she writes in a column about Kardashian and Humphries. “Then, it drove to the finish line wrapped in a dank hell where sacred, holy matrimony is nothing more than a cynical money-making enterprise. The marriage was nothing more than a profitable scam, one bought by heavy-set romantics who live their entire lives hoping for a shot at getting into bed with a HumpDashian. These two glassy-eyed ghouls, who announced their split, fittingly, on Halloween, don’t give a rat’s rump about rational notions of love, fidelity or the concept of forever. This was all about selling one’s body to the highest bidder.” Yowza. (New York Post)
