Kim Kardashian speaks out about quickie marriage

This is sure to become a collector's item.

This is sure to become a collector's item.

Bless Kim Kardashian’s heart. She married for love and will donate the haul from her multi-million dollar wedding to charity since it’s all over after 72 days, she says in a letter to fans posted on her blog.

Here it is. Warning, you’ll probably want to grab a hankie first. Sniff, sniff:

A message to my fans

“This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. I see all of the support and I am so thankful for my fans, friends and family who are helping me through this difficult time.

I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones. First and foremost, I married for love. I can’t believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show! I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it’s who I am! We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open!

Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a hopeless romantic! I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.

I’m being honest here and I hope you respect my courage because this isn’t easy to go through. But I do know that I have to follow my heart. I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn’t turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.

There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this. I’m so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation.

I’m sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart and I believe now that I really am.”

and as far as ti and mike vick– :) — they are not even on the same level. ti just needs to stay outa jail, like a couple of other people i know. and vick–do your thing mr million dollar man whose team manager and owner both knew that your people were running the doggie shows, but found it to be more pc to lie and and act surprised. oh, and i like the falcons’ jersey and then the eagles’ one– as long as we are not playing each other–cause then the eagles’ jersey sucks.

I mean, whatever, it’s her life. I didn’t pay her money for her wedding or buy her a gift so I’m not so concerned that she wants a divorce. I guess its all just for page views now with the AJC.. I think every media outlet has beaten this dead horse.

I use t follow the K’s seemed pretty interesting even though I must say I liked Kourtney and Khloe better they seemed more for real. Kim was shopping for a husband she had her publicist out looking for someone who would be stupid enough to do this with her. Remember when she said if her then husband were to play in Okla.City she would be living there yeah right!! The ring no worries she bought it so he didn’t lose on that one. I dare to say Kris the mother should be ashamed of her self she is pimping her children to no end. I dare to say when it comes to the last two and she tries this stuff we may see the wrath of Bruce. The only one I really kind of feel sorry for is Kris Humphries but guess what he will be ok all she did was made him a hot commodity on market so to KH the best of luck to you to KK stop it you are showing your true colors hopeless romantic no you are a hopeless garden tool and your own brother called you out on your trip to Bora Bora.

I am little confused here. First – she married for love. She is hopelessly romantic, and loves with all her heart, and soul. Second – she’s the one filing for divorce! 2 months after their wedding! I can’t connect the dots. Help me out, please!

Kim is no role model to her two youngest sisters, and yes, mom Kris is the puppeteer in all of this drama. Bruce is a wuss and needs to “man up” and stop all of this craziness in his house!

This creature is a manipulator and media ho. She’s famous simply for being on TV, that’s it.

Who cares if she hoses this guy and files for divorce, it’s just more media drama, for a drama queen.

Look at the Social Security program or reform of the current tax code and take an interest in something that will actually impact your wallet and ability to exist in 20 years.

Anyone who thinks there is anything real about the Kardashians is sadly mistaken. It’s really sad that our society has degenerated to the point of “keeping up” with such crap. There are REAL problems and issues we face every day that deserve the kind of time and attention the media and everyday people are giving to this charade.

let’s all be honest here-she NEVER even had a marriage, only a wedding. and if you really marry for love, why is she giving up after only 72 days??? c’mon Kim, seriously, for once, do be real and admit it was all about the money….

She obviously never loved the guy or she’d be apologizing to HIM instead of her fans!!!
It’s sad that a lot of Hollywood romances and marriages are nothing but a publicity stunt to boost sales. She thinks more of what others think than the ones who were truly hurt? How sad!!
Grow up Kim–there is more to life than money & material things!! Maybe when you realize that you will find someone who loves you & can make a marriage last

If we all followed our “hearts” we would be in Vegas and strip clubs with beautiful blondes for us guys- And the women would be jumping on every bs romantic bs thrown their way from some dude that seemed like he “had it together”-

So be careful about following your hear- Your heart plays tricks on that a*s!

These two idiots can get married for a television show but a gay couple actually in love is prohibited by law. If the “Defense of Marriage Act” was actually that and not blatant discrimination then it should also prevent sham marriages like this from being legal. Racist/bigot children are bullies; when they grow up they turn into Bob Barr, John Boehner, Rick Santorum, etc…

This isn’t the first time Kim has been married. She had a very brief marriage when she was younger. Pity the man that gets the family, I mean Kim for a 3rd day.

For the life of me I don’t understand what all the attention to this story is all about. She is only famous for being famous. She has no skills or talent save those of being willing to live her life in front of a tv camera. Millions of people are divorced everyday, some after just a few weeks. This is not news, yet it continues to be the lead on such formerly respected news programs as the Today show and others. America, get a life. This one isnt worth following.

I’m sorry but I know a couple personally who are not famous, but filed for divorce 2 months after the wedding. They were in love with love. This is not the first time this has happened. Why is this such a big deal? I guess because so many live their lives vangloriously through these reality shows. Look at these people!! Do they really look happy to you or are they really trying too hard?

She epitomizes what is wrong with this “push the restart” generation. They are so self absorbed that they will never understand what it takes to be an adult. It’s always about them. These are immature children in adult bodies that have never been parented or suffered a consequence.

I watch the Kardashian show sometimes on E! It’s entertaining to see how they treat the men in their lives (including Rob and Bruce). These ladies are very overbearing. I think Kris knew what he was getting when he married Kim. Maybe he wanted out and Kim took the first step so she wouldn’t look bad.

This was KK’s SECOND marriage, and this will be her SECOND divorce. She’s been around the (divorce court) block before.

Let’s get real. This woman acheived fame by organizing Hollywood closets. Yes, she is beautiful but she is not very bright. Her brains are where she sits and that’s why I think her butt is so big. She is nothing but a joke, and she has her mother to thank for alot of this. I think that Bruce should wake up and put a stop to this before Mrs Jenner ruins the lives of his biological daughters as well.Wathcing their show only serves to encourage their bad behavior. If we stop watching them, they have no audience. I feel sorry for the poor chump who married her, I am sure he didn’t think that “till death do us part” meant for 72 days.

You know the negativity is really sad, Kim Kardashian has feelings and this kind of talk is not helping anything. People should not judge other people, but then again maybe its because their lives are so uninteresting that they need to pick Kim Kardashian apart.

What a stupid story. If she was smart enough she would have follwoed her heart instead of thinking of $$$$$$ like she alwasy does! That’s all these Kardashian’s think about! I dont’ believe a word she says and if she really felt bad she would give the ring back as well as all the gifts she got! Forget giving a donation – yea, right! I cannot stand people who only think of themselves and don’t give a dam about anyone else. Sorry, not buying the boo hoo story!

She is such a phony! Married for love and is such a hopeless romantic yet she filed for divorce after 72 days. Where did the love go so fast? Her mom claimed Kim agonized for two days over filing for divorce, another lie! she was out partying the Sat before filing. Now she is apologising to her fans and saying she didn”t mean to hurt anyone. How about apologising to Kris and his family for not even showing him a little respect by informing him before you file for divorce? That sad face is all an act! if you are hurting so much you would be at home! you love the attention and cameras on you! Kourtney and Khloe could’ve gone to Australia! For those who watch their show and buy their products, they keep getting richer and richer. Hard working educated ppl can’t get jobs but this self absorbed family make all this money by doing BS. Too much of the K family just like it used to be Paris Hylton. Time to Boycott them America! Occupy wall street should turn on them too!

To Kim C: My life is very interesting and I don’t have to live it in front of a tv camera to validate it. This is not about tearing down the K’s. They put themselves in the public eye and should expect the public to have an opinion. That being said, have you read her statemenet. She apologizes to her fans but not to Kris. K. Take a look again at the statement. She said she probably should have ended the relationship before she married but she didn’t know how. But 72 days later, she found a way to end it. This is just the family trying to do damage control. If she married for love; how can that love disappear 2 months later.

yea right

November 2nd, 2011
10:02 pm

Kim, your a true hoe and it shoes. You marry for love you say but after just two months you walk out. Honey, you have no idea what love is and acting like you do you never will.
Oh and why not send the wedding gifts back to the people who gave them to you. They expected more from you and its not charity. They go back, Thats the proper thing to do.
