When you put your life on display, don’t be surprised when people comment on it. The girl we all love to hate, Kim Kardashian, has decided after 72 days of marriage, that she no longer wants to be married to Kris Humphries. (Might I add it was a little tacky…or maybe just weird…that E! showed their wedding special not once but TWICE yesterday. *SMH*) I think America, quite possibly the world, was stunned to hear this news. I’m sure that people thought they would last at least a year. But less than 3 months…that’s harsh. Can I also add that E! Entertainment Television has plans to premier “Kim and Kourtney take New York” later this month, which will focus on the newlyweds. I really feel bad for the Hump, who apparently wants to stay married and make his marriage work. He really seems like someone who got caught up in the Kardashian web. And from watching the special (heck, watching the entire Kardashian series), it seemed as if Kim was more caught up with the idea of having a wedding than having a husband. Long story short, I wish them all the best.
Leading GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain seems to continue to surprise Americans…or maybe just me. I can say a few people were surprised to find out Herman Cain is a graduate of Morehouse College, a premier collegiate institution for African-American men. People were shocked that Cain has done as well as he had in various national polls. But what surprises people are the allegations of sexual harassment. (This is very reminiscent of another Black conservative who came to national attention a few years back.) But what is MOST surprising is that these allegations have not seem to hurt or hinder Cain’s momentum. Time will tell just want is in store for this man.
Some more surprising news (which did not overshadow the Kardashian-Humphries news) was the announcement by Jessica Simpson is that she is in fact pregnant! In the past, Simpson has always addressed weight gain allegations; this time she let it ride and for good reason. She announced on Monday that is expecting with fiancee’ Eric Johnson.
What recent news has come out that has surprised you or caused your mouth to drop open in awe? What do you think the future holds for Kim and Herman? Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
