If you haven’t heard of Kim Kardashian’s marriage to husband-of-72-days Kris Humphries by now, it’s no doubt that you’ve been living under a rock.
While it’s not “big news” anymore, there is still something about this story that simply has my PR-blood boiling, and yours should be as well.
But first, I must preface with the fact that I am a kloset member of the Kardashian Klan. AKA: I love the little money-making family business they have built for themselves.
So, like I said, we’ve all heard about the rumors swirling weeks after the wedding ended. We heard about the heart-breaking divorce after less than three months of marriage, we heard about Kim’s flight to Australia after the announcement to work, and then her flight to Minnesota to speak to Kris and his family. We also heard how Kris himself heard about the divorce via… the internet. We heard Kim’s sob story of how it wasn’t working, she wasn’t happy, and she just had to end it.
But is this reality-star and business woman savvy enough to think of the PR repercussions she will be reaping from all of this, or is it true what they say — no publicity is bad publicity.
