Here we go… I am dog tired of reality shows. (I know, I just wanted to use that picture!) Now, we are learning more about one show from some divorce proceeding court documents, and what we are learning is telling us that reality is really, “let’s do it again for the cameras”.
Lawsuits tend to bring out the truth when people are answering questions under oath. That’s what is happening in the Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries divorce proceedings.
The wonderful world of romance was initally played out on “Keeping up with the Kardashians”. Now, through divorce proceedings and deposition transcripts, the testimony is telling how much of the show is really scripted. (Life & Style Weekly) Here’s what we learned about the lack of reality in this reality show.
- When we saw Humphries propose to Kim K a few years back and he spelled out WILL YOU MARRY ME on her bed in rose petals; we were actually watching the second take. According to deposition testimony, the scene was re-shot after Kim was not satisfied with the scene or proposal. Apparently, she was bothered with how she reacted to the proposal when on camera, “she had a bad reaction or something and she was embarrassed.”
- Another instance of non-reality is a scene involving Kim and her mother Kris Jenner. They were discussing Kim’s marital problems. We now know that the scene was actually taped after Kim filed for divorce from Humphries in October 2011. By then… difficulties were already down the track.
- Another emotion that is not so emotional, according to court documents, is that the characters had tears because of a cosmetic tool known as the “tear stick“.
- In another episode, the mother was angry to learn that there had been a party thrown in her motel room while she was gone. In fact, she was in the room during the shooting of the party. Not such a surprise after all!
According to the article, Kim Kardashian has attempted to resolve the divorce action of Humphries by offering him an estimated 10 million payoff. Instead, he refuses and is asking for more of her accumulated net worth that is a reported 35 million. Supposedly, under the settlement terms, all matters of the marriage are to be confidential. Humphries apparently believes that he stands to earn a whole lot more with a tell-all book.
Maybe this will be the beginning of the end of all of these reality programs. Would people watch, still knowing that reality was not real? Do people watch pro wresting?
For pic o’ day we are reminded that reality shows have nothing over real life:
