Did Kim Kardashian’s Short-Lived Marriage Hurt Her Public Image?

November 10, 2011 07:23 AM by Megan Thompson

Kim Kardashian shocked the reality world when she announced she was filing for divorce.  All the media attention and the jokes about her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries have taken a toll on the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star.  Plus, Kim thinks she has let her fans down and is worried her public reputation is permanently damaged.

After only 72 days, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries.  Kim made her wedding a reality TV extravaganza on E!, costing upwards of $10 million dollars.  Later in a note to her fans, Kim admitted that she was embarrassed about throwing such a lavish wedding.  Kim is upset about her marriage ending, but it seems Kim is more concerned about the public’s opinion of her.    

Kim Kardashian is back to work in Atlanta studying for her new role in Tyler Perry’s movie, The Marriage Counselor.  However, sources on the set tell US weekly that Kim is obviously upset and not herself.  The source shared, “She’s being very quiet and isn’t smiling very much.”  It seems all the media attention and jokes about her marriage, especially the SNL skit, have hit Kim hard.  Kim is very concerned that she has permanently damaged her reputation by this whole wedding disaster.  Friends close with Kim told Us Weekly, “She thinks the world turned against her. She feels everyone hates her.” It also seems the reality star can’t stop crying, she has been “honestly a mess.” 

So has your opinion of Kim Kardashian changed since she filed for divorce?  Do you think the E! reality star can bounce back from this PR nightmare.  Let us know, leave a comment below!

    What public image? She’s an uneducated porn star who likes to be urinated on? Who does she think she’s fooling? She can parade around in dark glasses and tacky designer clothes and it won’t change her into royalty or a “princess” or anything but what the public sees her to be – a skank who will sink to any level to make money. She’s already flirting on set with her co-star. That didn’t take long. She’s no designer either. No education for it and she is being sued for stealing her perfume logo and color scheme.

    kim k will always be a ho! No 1 cares about her she’s a piece of trash and she needs to be dump in the garbage dump with all the rest of the trash we have in America. She’s a useless human being and I wish she would f****** disappear I’m so sick of hearing about this useless c***.

    it’s over kim i’m guessing about 80% of your used to be called fanbase has no sympathy for you.
    you took a sacred tradition and turned it into to a greedy money making endeavor.

    Yes I really liked watching their show. But very disappointed no longer will watch their show. She is not longer in high school to say she tought she was in love she is in her 30s.

    How could her farce of a marriage damage her already ridiculous image? The only positive thing about this is that hopefully society will now realize what a waste she and her entire no-talented family are and, just maybe will disappear.

    Yes for me it has changed. You don’t get married and then all of a sudden 72 days later this isn’t going to work. All marriages take work and sometimes even counseling will help. I used to watch the show sometimes and may still but probably not as often.

    It was just the last straw of many horrible over expose Kardashian moments. I don’t think she thought about a “Marriage Counselor” until she would get paid. Done with KK

    I can’t speak for everybody but I was a HUGE fan of her, until I learnt about her divorce! Now, she makes me sick!! She’s fake and I won’t watch KUWTK and the spinoff. I even stopped following her on twitter…I’m way too disappointed!

    It’s funny that Kim did not hide or worry about her reputation when her sex tape came out with Ray J. That to her and others brought her to stardom, but because she left her marriage she is not worried about her poor husband who should have grabbed all of those red flags before the wedding the controlling selfish, lying, Kim and Mother. Kim constantly telling Humphfries that she can’t come down to his way of living he must come up to hers. Kim didn’t even like his house, dog or room. The marriage didn’t ruin Kim, the show just showed how Kim was as a person and the public hates that.

    Hurt her what? IMAGE?lol Seriously? A woman who is only known for exploiting her BODY and her FAMILY for profit?LOL Even a marriage that lasted only 72 minutes couldn’t hurt her ‘image’ in my opinion. I am baffled that you even pose the question.

    My opinion of Kim changed when she decided to marry this douche bag after only dating for a few months. DUH! What a great “role model” for our world! Her nuptuals obviously meant nothing. The Kardashian family is a disgrace!

    Personally yes my opinion has changed about Kim Kardashian. I know that everyone makes mistakes and shouldn’t owe anyone an explanation, but I just don’t get why this happended. She spends so much money on her wedding and then had it aired publicly for what?! I’m pretty sure Kris Humphries is heartbroken, and I wouldn’t blame him. Kim needs to get her life together before ruining someone else’s or bringing them into her life before wrecking it. But we as people as have no room to judge Kim or question what she did, because she’s still human and that’s what we have to remember at the end of the day. :)

    Everything is a commodity to the Kardashians and Kim is no exception. Anything can be bought and easily thrown away. The only reason she sheds a tear is for herself. Stop buying all the Kardashian stuff and watch them go away. This stunt should be her last. Do not support Kim in anyway. Let her wonder where her next dollar will come from.

    Just disgusted! She married a great guy, and to me she looks like an idiot! She should be crying and humiliated for a time . Everyone has to stop purchasing anything with her name associated with her! Kris–you will find better!!

    Hopefully she’ll just stop the madness. It’s not just the divorce, shes had this coming for a while.Her stores have low low lowwwww rateings.Shes just not paying attention to how she treats people who have complaints. She seems to be a bit on the narcissistic side. Frankly she is an insult to hard working people and nobody wants to give her their money.I personally stopped buying magazines with her face on the cover a year ago. Hopefully she’ll understand that America doesn’t want this kind of crap any more nor do they respond well to someone who sticks out their hand and demanding millions. She is a human being but every soul is worth millions in my book, not just KIM KARDASHIAN. I hope Kim gets serious help.

    she’s so silly to have done that…obviously she let d media attention get to her head and she lost focus of her purpose. she obviously continually needs public validation to feel good about herself and her actions.
    she’s a people pleaser and she has little self esteem inspite of her beauty and until she fixes that she’ll never feel good enough.
    she married kris for d public hype, she divorced him for public sympathy but she’s not even worried how this hurt him…
    what she should have done were she wise was to leave to europe for about a year, build their relationship before coming back for her reality show…
    and by the way, how could she have coped with the sex??? that guy is too huge and i thought she was greedy from d moment i first saw their pictures…yeah i said it!
    too bad she hurt d poor boy, who though he never knew she was divorced before till they were married…
    She should go and learn from Kendra!!!
