Kris Humphries Speaks; Kim Kardashian Keeps Selling Her Handbags

In our continuing coverage of the statements from people surrounding the Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries divorce, we finally have something from Mr. Kardashian-Humphries.

I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce… I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.

Well isn’t that dumb?

But perhaps he’s not quite as naive as he sounds there. TMZ, in its wall-to-wall coverage of this totally expected event, says Humphries hired a publicist over the weekend (Bossip said he hired Eva Longoria’s publicist Liza Anderson back in December) and started talking about branding.

As if we needed more evidence of the fact that Kim Kardashian and her family couldn’t give a crap about this divorce, Business Insider has published a group of tweets where the clan talks about new fashion lines, Halloween, and other stuff even as the papers are being processed. And we have news today that Kim is heading to Australia to promote her handbags down under.

RLM PR founder Richard Laermer tells the New York Daily News that this “news” was likely strategically placed on a Monday for maximum effect. Moreover, he would’ve told Kim to hold off for a little while and to not look like she was enjoying herself quite so much on Halloween. Is there such a thing as bad publicity for Kim K? She’s like the McD’s of reality stars.

Meanwhile, E! Network can’t even keep the stories straight.
