Kris Humphries Offered a Spot in Chippendales


Today in Kardassian marriage-mocking news.

Here's the promo for this weekend's now canceled Vegas nightclub appearance by Kardashian spouse Kris Humphries, which you may have at first thought was a promo for the new Twilight film, or a gay circuit party. It's neither.

Still, I guess somebody perceived it as an audition:

TMZ has learned … Chippendales in Vegas has already reached out to Humphries, hoping to fill their empty celebrity MC spot at the Rio — previously occupied by ex-98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons.

KkMeanwhile, Kim Kardashian wrote a ridiculously pathetic letter to her fans, begging them to stop being angry at her:

I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones. 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! I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it’s who I am! We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open!
Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a hopeless romantic! I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.

Mainstream media has noted the outrage from the LGBT community over the couple making a joke of the institution of marriage:

"Kim Kardashian files for divorce after 72 days. Another example of how same-sex marriage is destroying the sanctity of the very institution," joked Geoge Takei on Twitter, expressing the sentiment of many.

And Jill Goldstein and Nikki Weiss-Goldstein (former stars of The Real L Word), wrote an open letter to Kardashian asking her to support marriage equality:

Kim, we have no doubt that a woman as smart, savvy, and beautiful as you will find love and marriage again. But for the respect of the millions of people who hear about it at every turn (many of whom you rely on to build your brand) please do take into consideration the uphill battle that so many of us have to fight for marriage equality. Perhaps you can demonstrate a bit more respect for the union next time around, instead of using it as a business gain.

We leave you with this idea: Why not take a portion of the millions of dollars you earned on your wedding and donate it to the Human Rights Campaign to help fight for marriage equality? It would speak very loudly.

    The whole thing is so ridiculous – clearly this was just a cheap $$$ ploy – and I get the feeling that Humphries wasn’t fully involved in the plan. The real question is whether or not he’ll still be on the show… LOL…

    And yes, this shows how ridiculous all this “sanctity” crap is…

    The sad thing is this crazy family went out of their way to represent a relatively unknown ethnicity (Armenian). Now they just make Armenians look like money hungry materialistic idiots.

    Cher, Joe Manganiello, Andre Agassi etc are much better Armenian role models. Heck, Jack Kevorkian is a better role model than Kim Kardashian.

    Just like a goldfish that will eat till it dies, Kim just can’t stop giving. We, her loyal subjects need to learn to be less demanding and allow Kim time to think about Kim. If not, Kim will keep giving until there is no more Kim to give. I, for one, could not live in a Kimless world.

    From Wiki: “Manganiello is of Sicilian, Austrian, German and Armenian descent.” Armenians are great, but are they really calling anybody with an Armenian ancestor Armenian? Wouldn’t that make almost everybody Armenian?

  5. Drew says

    I’ll ignore the Krap-related backstory and just say that Kris rocks a gorgeous, 6’9″(!) body. Too bad the possible Chippendales gig fell by the wayside. Google’s image search will just have to suffice.

  6. Mark says

    It’s a sad commentary when unremarkable people with undeserved fame receive this much attention and money for accomplishing absolutely nothing other than knowing how to market their own personal lives and fame.

    Instead of posting this kind of crap about hollow and narcissistic media whores (or the endless supply of homophobes people rant about daily ad nauseum) why not feature heroic LGBT people–people of substance and integrity who are actually making a real difference through sacrifice and accomplishment?

    Our community needs to start championing the gay heroes who are helping to make the world a better place. That is how we change hearts and minds–and create role models for LGBT youth. If we stop giving a platform to this kind of greed, self-obsession and superficiality we might start changing some of the selfish attitudes and behaviors that are contributing to so much of the problems in our society.

    The activists trying to get publicity in support of gay marriage have far better targets than the likes of the annoying but ultimately harmless porn/”reality” vessel that is Kim Kardashian. The people they should be focusing on are all the anti-gay politicians who have publicly disrespected whatever sanctity there is in a marriage contract. These are the people who have made a living out of vilifying us for what they say is immorality while they cheat on their spouses, or inform a spouse fighting cancer that they are filing for divorce, etc. etc.
