'Kourtney and Kim Take New York': Spot the signs of eventual divorce

E!'s Kardashian reality franchise kept chugging on Sunday with the season premiere of "Kourtney and Kim Take New York." Of course, there's been a major change: One of the central couples - Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries - split up before the show could make it to air.

To remedy that, the premiere kicked off with an acknowledgement that Kim and Kris' marriage lasted for all of 72 days with a montage of the media's coverage, People reports.

The show then flashed back to eight weeks prior, when newlyweds Kris and Kim, who had never lived together before, moved into the Gansevoort with Kourtney, her sometimes-boyfriend Scott Disick and the couple's baby, Mason. It was only downhill from there.

At one point, Kris gets ticked off because Kourtney indulges in some naked yoga - complete with a nude yoga instructor, which Kris was none too pleased about.

"Kris, you don't treat people like that, I don't care how uncomfortable you are," Kim yells. "You are so immature I can't take it."

The New Jersey Nets player yelled back, "How rude is it that there's a naked guy in my house...You can't take it? I can't take it."

When they weren't bickering over yoga in the buff, they were butting heads over their odd couple ways: Kris couldn't handle all of the press at a "Welcome to New York" celebration, and also disregarded Kim's tidy tendencies. When Kim gets upset because he stepped on and messed up her toenail, Kris told viewers, "Kim is a classic over-reactor."

The 26-year-old wasn't pleased to share his newlywed space with a baby, and also wasn't happy living in the Big Apple. Finally, he tells Kim, "I love you so much, but....I think I'm gonna go to Minnesota to train." As Entertainment Weekly notes, Kim asks, "We're gonna live separate? Like a long-distance marriage?"

"Kourtney and Kim Take New York" is only one episode in, but we already know the answer to her question - instead of a long-distance marriage, they ended up opting to not have one at all.

Did you catch "Kourtney and Kim Take New York?" What'd you think?

    I too have seen all the drama on the tabloids at the checkout. Seriously, I think the children of the mother Kris Jenner should probably not be blamed. Children are the product of their parents and Kim's mother was publicizing her own extra-marital affair at the time Kim was announcing her divorce. What kind of mother would do that regardless? Really? If she were my mother I would be humiliated especially since the husband she cheated on isn't around. That's not right. What bothers me the most is they claim to be Christian. I hope they know SIN is SIN and get on the right track. I think Jesus died on the cross for all our sins including the Kardashian families so I pray they find the light of God and not the light of Hollywood. Nobody will care about your publicity in eternity. Again, just sayin. Not being mean-spirited as others have been on this post.

    I've lived and worked in Asia, and I have to say that the Kardaashians pretty much epitomize why all American women are lacking, and why Asian women rock! American women are self absorbed, narcissistic and completely into themselves. Asian women are for the most part, beautiful and have the whole respect thing down.

    Kris is very very immature and a big bully. If you have been watching this relationship at all you could see this comming. He has been very rough and cruel to Kim, her family, and anyone who gets in his way. He laughs it off as a Joke. This guy has ALOT of growing up to do before he should ever think about any relationship much less marriage ! I feel bad for Kim... she is taking alot of heat over the fact that she had a big expensive wedding. What none of us will ever get is the kind of pressure she was in to go thru with that marriage once this thing turned into a whole production. How do you back out of that ? You go thru with it and hope you can work it out. She was very smart for realizing quickly how wrong it all really was. Kudos to Kim ! Don't sweat it sweetheart !! You did the RIGHT thing ! For BOTH of you ! ( Kourtney on the other hand.... you need to relax a little.. I'm just saying... )

      I agree. People are hating Kim cause she's beautiful but not realizing that Kris is very agressive and she does not deserve how he treats her. She seems like a loving person who is just looking for the right guy in her life. Too bad she rushed in to the marriage but glad she made the decision to divorce before things get worse!

  28. Mrs. M

    I watched, because I wanted to see how their newlywed problems measured up to those I once had. Understanding that editing has everything to do with what was shown to the public, it was very surprising to me to see how evident their problems were from the onset.

    First, in order for Kris to be on a reality-show he had to sign a contract that spelled out his compensation and his obligations. The publicity "Welcome to NY" party and red-carpet event was just as much his business obligation to attend (and pose for pictures) as it was Kim's. The way he balked at meeting his business obligation was not only immature, but embarrassing to watch.

    I wouldn't want a guy that big stepping on my toe. It did seem like Kim was over-reacting to what initially sounded like messed up nail polish. But, it turned out that by stepping on her toe he split her toenail and it was causing her pain. If someone did that to me I would've made more noise about it than she did, especially when he acted like it was no big deal and clearly didn't care about her pain or the fact that he caused it. Who wants to learn they just married someone who doesn't care if they injure you – especially after you just told them they play "too rough."

    The nude yoga – that was obviously weird and uncomfortable for everyone. I would've been completely stunned to see that going on anywhere. But, Kris obviously has a major problem controlling his verbal outbursts. He appears to speak (or yell) before he thinks about what he says. It doesn't seem to matter where he is, what he's doing or who he's with – he treats other people like they're crap. (Khloe called it right.)

    There's nothing worse for a "neat-freak" than to live with a slob, except when the slob intentionally makes a bigger mess or refuses to clean up after themself as soon as they learn it upsets you.

    Kris' decision to leave New York was obviously his own, an immature young man who runs from conflict instead of facing and resolving it with maturity. Just as obvious was that Kim wasn't happy about his decision to bail.

    After seeing what I saw on TV, I must say I'm proud of Kim for the decision she made. I'm not a celebrity. No one would've criticized me. But, when I had been married for 2 weeks I realized I had made the biggest mistake of my life – and I was too embarrassed to walk away. Instead, I was miserable for almost 3 years – by which time both my mental and physical health had suffered considerably. I feel badly for Kim that she's had to suffer from all the hateful media attacks. After seeing the most recent episode of this reality-show, it should be clear to anyone who's not a moron that the reason this marriage didn't work was because Kris Humphries is too immature to be anyone's husband.

      I guess if you love these bimbos, you are still suffering mental problems from your divorce. Kris was the only stable person in the bunch. Kim had complete editorial control over the editing and she made the poor guy look as bad as possible (from what I have read). I don't watch the KarTRASHians.

      Seriously? The "neat freak" should loosen up some. There are worse things in the world than the one you love leaving things around. That is what marriage is all about, compromise and that happens when you work through differences when you are truly in love.
      Ms.K doesn't seem to understand others and why a situation might be bothersome. It would have been good and mature to pass the fact that yoga was going to be naked by him before he was startled by it. This is consideration and thinking of the one you love. Kris was obviously taken by surprise and she calls him immature? She did not take him into thought one little bit.
      Ms. K is self absorbed. She should not marry until she matures past her own personal needs. She gives nothing positive to our society. Ms. K shows us in glaring detail the faults in our society.

      I relate to your story, Mrs. M. In January 1989 I married a man I'd been together with for almost two years. We'd lived together almost a year of that time. While still on our honeymoon in Hawaii he asked for a divorce. The narcissism really started coming out. I knew I made a horrible mistake. Embarrassed and coming from a Catholic family – I stuck it out for three years. Fortunately there were no kids. My health suffered and by the time I left in January 1992 my self confidence was in tatters.

      Love prevails. I grew up. Healed. Learned who I needed to be to have a positive, loving relationship and attract a great guy who'd cherish me forever. In August 1997 I met my husband. We didn't get married for eight years – but I'm so happy now. Every day I KNOW I chose love over everything else. It's been 14.5-years together now and we're still crazy in love.

      Face it people, they are both immature and selfish otherwise there wouldn't be such drama. Stop seeing it in simplistic black and white. And just because you think Kim is a ho, doesn't mean Kris is a saint. He's been pretty damn obnoxious – no matter how it's edited. He did say and do all those things. And that doesn't exactly make him sterling husband material.

      Kim K is selfish. She didn't show any interest in Kris' career and she made it seem like that instructor dude was normal. After seeing that episode, i completely blame Kim for their divorce. I have never seen a group of such materialistic, self-absorbed, money hungry, godless people. May God shed his mercy on them as it is obvious they are so far the path. They sell their bodies literally for money. And Kris was not wrong when he left. He needed to focus on his work also which is just as important. I feel like Kim wants everyone to compromise to her style of life rather than she ever compromising. It is always about her. These people are so far off from the reality of what is the state of the world that it is disgusting.

    I felt like these two where doomed from the very beginning to fail. What is so normal to Kim is like over the top and disrespectful to Kris such as the naked yoga guy. Minnesota is a pretty conservative area and Kris seems conservative on top of that. Where Kim is from LA and that is like the wild west compared to Minnesota. Then you have the hole extended family and a baby in your space too that is not how you start a marriage off. Again nothing Kris asked for was unreasonable. If anything it seemed to me that Kim was being a drama queen and not willing to work with Kris very much and compromise on things. Showing both their immaturity. I also kind of felt that Kim did not take Kris's basketball training seriously.

    All I have to say is IMHO Kris Humphries didn't get the memo that he was essentially a Kardashian accessory. Remember he was the second choice; first choice was IIRC Danilo Gallinari but was passed over turned down the offers from E! on immediately dating her and starring in a reality show, but said he wouldn't mind meeting Kim. Basically he took the relationship seriously and Kim didn't (frankly I don't think she's capable of doing so). Which BTW, EricBrett73, Kim Kardashian's very aesthetically pleasing on the eyes but most dudes with half a brain will steer clear from someone that high maintenance and that interested in their image and money.

      Mean and abusive? No. Realistic? Yes. Any husband would be angry to find a naked man in his home (no matter the situation). And while telling his wife that by the time she has school aged children she won’t be as popular, is a little insensitive, it isn’t abusive.

      With enough money anyone can be beautiful. I would guess that Kim would be more average looking without all that money supporting her looks.

    I agree with Robin; this latest stunt caused me to make a decision that I will not support anything Kardashian. She is clearly only interested in fame and money. She wants the husband and children, but lacks the ability to think outside of herself. Due to his lack of fame, the media attempts to portray him as the bad person. Regardless, she has a lot to learn before she can have success in a relationship/marriage.

    Didn't watch it and decided after the stunt Kim pulled, I'll never watch anything regarding Kardashian again. She's a train wreck ready to happen. Good move, Kris. You were very smart to leave. You can do 1,000 times better.

      I wonder if Kris ever got any of that nasty 'ho – bet Kim K. played the princess, always had a headache... if you know what I mean. If Kim K. had ANY class she'd return EVERY wedding gift they received... keep the E! money, they were (and are) idiots to promote such a tramp – maybe Kim K. can use some of the E! funds to get Bruce Jenner's facelift fixed. OMG he looks so creepy, especially that work around the eyes.

      Kim K loves only money and herself. The whole family needs help.
