Finally, the Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries divorce has come dangerously close to affecting the rest of us. Word is there was a problem with a Kardashian Christmas card.
Before panicking, know this: The official Kardashian kristmas kard photo shoot went down Monday, according to a tweet from Kim, so the future of Hollywood's holiday cheer appears to be intact.
"Shooting our family Christmas card today," she wrote. "u guys will love our theme this year. Hanging w the fam is the best! Then off 2 see Rob dance!"
(Rob Kardashian, of course, kicked some serious freestyle booty while shaking his own notable booty Monday on the first part of the "Dancing With the Stars" finals. He took home a perfect score of 30 for his second dance, with sisters Kim and Khloe there in the audience, along with Kris and Bruce Jenner, and is up for the Mirror Ball Trophy tonight on ABC.)
But back to the important stuff -- the Kim-and-Kris card that didn't see the light of day.
After a Christmas-card picture of the newlyweds was taken in August on the staircase at the Montecito spread where they were married, before they scooted for their honeymoon, Kim reportedly asked a stationery company for at least 10 versions to choose from, a source told Radar Online. She checked out said proofs in mid-September. And then filed for divorce on Halloween. In a perfect world, any money spent to that point would have actually caught on fire.
"She conveyed to the owners of the company that she was very pleased with the results," the source said. "Kim said she would get back to them with a final choice, but alas, she never did, for obvious reasons."
Another unnamed insider, by the way, would have you believe that Humphries was actually the bad guy responsible for the "obvious reasons": "He tried to control Kim by bringing her down," someone without a name told Us Weekly, describing hubby's hard-partying ways and alleging the 26-year-old had a mean streak. "He would say truly terrible things. One time, he said she had no talent and her fame wouldn't last."
And this one other time? Clutch those pearls quickly! He allegedly said she had a fat behind.
Nevertheless, it sounds as if we'll still have our annual fun checking out the full-family Kardashian Kard -- last year's theme probably wasn't supposed to be "The Addams Family," but that, fabulously, is sort of what happened.
