Is it too late to recall the Kardashian Konfidential update? Since I have a final version in my hands, I’m assuming the answer is a resounding “yes.” But who on earth would have predicted that Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries would last only 72 days?! (Ed. note: Everyone.) Is nothing in this world sacred?
In September, EW exclusively revealed that Kardashian Konfidential would get a re-release (out Nov. 22) with a new chapter about their business success, along with never-before-seen photos of the now-infamous Kim/Kris nuptials. But now, Kim’s happily never after photo album is sadly out-of-place in lieu of her divorce news. Ooops!
I read through the 17 new pages of material to see if anything stood out as deliciously ironic. If you happened to watch E!’s wedding special, then there’s really nothing that new about fairy-tale event. But, as expected, there were a few gems. Here are the highlights:
- “I’m so happy that I’m with a man who’s excited about his work and has such a full life.” —Kim
- “Putting together a wedding is a huge job…. Still, I did manage to find some time along the way to really think about what was happening and where this next chapter of life was going to take me.” —Kim
- “We were married! All of those years dreaming about my wedding…. And it was finally here. Just amazing!” —Kim
- “There was so much going on at this moment…. But for Kris and myself, there was something else going on. Something sweet! Something simple!” —Kim
How quickly things change in 72 days. It appears as though the ink had barely dried before Kim changed her mind about Mr. Humphries and called it quits. In addition to the wedding album, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe talk about their success in some of the non-TV ventures like their many fashion collections. They also added a short chapter about their two half-sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Let me be clear, I stand by my original review of the book: any true Kardashian fan will probably love it. But now that divorce news has exploded into our Kardashian-obsessed culture, the update is just sad (or comical depending on your sense of humor).
