Kim Kardashian doesn't want her divorce from Kris Humphries turned into fodder for "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" or even an E! special.

Sources close to the family tell TMZ she won't have this painful time exploited for reality TV.

Whether or not the cameras have been rolling, Kim plans to acknowledge the split when she resumes shooting "Kardashians" early next year. Just don't expect to see any ugly divorce drama play out on TV, the site says. Her wedding to Humphries was happily turned into a two-part special, with a rerun of part one running the day she filed for divorce.

Meanwhile, more breakup details continue to surface. People's sources say that the idea of divorce had "been on her mind a lot lately" and "she was completely torn." Apparently, the decision was "last-minute," and it was the timing that threw off Humphries the most.

"He found out about the divorce papers via the Internet," a source told the mag. "He thought they were going through troubling times and a really tough situation but he thought they would figure it out."

Kim filed for divorce Monday, just 72 days after the couple’s splashy wedding. Since then, haters have been calling the marriage a sham and a "showmance," but Kim denies the accusations.

"I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones," Kim wrote Tuesday on her personal blog. "First and foremost, I married for love. I can't believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show!"
