Kris Humphries, If Kris Humphries gets his way, all the dirty details from his upcoming date in divorce court with reality star Kim Kardashian will play out on TV and on the Web.
The New Jersey Nets basketballer and his lawyer, Lee Hutton, are angling for overexposure because they believe it will help their case if the ugly truth about the cutthroat reality-TV business is revealed to the general public.
They say that allowing cameras in the courtroom for the divorce proceedings will reveal that Kardashian was more interested in boosting ratings for her show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” than in staying married to Humphries, according to www.tmz.com.
Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce from Humphries, 27, on Oct. 31, just 72 days after the couple’s wedding.
Madonna skipping Michigan
No big surprise here: Madonna, riding a wave of glory and big TV ratings after her Super Bowl XLVI halftime performance Sunday, has announced the dates for her upcoming world tour. She’ll be hitting the road to promote her new album, “MDNA,” which arrives March 26.
Now for the bad news (though it’s not exactly a big surprise either): The Michigan native has left her home state off the initial tour itinerary released Tuesday by promoter Live Nation. Currently, the six-month tour includes stops in the Middle East, Europe and throughout North America. The shows start May 29 in Tel Aviv, Israel, and the last listed date is Nov. 17 in Atlanta (although a Miami date following the Atlanta show is expected).
For metro Detroiters thinking about taking a road trip, the Material Girl will play Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on Sept. 12, Chicago’s United Center on Sept. 19 and Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena on Nov. 10.
Madonna also skipped Michigan venues during her 2004 and 2006 tours. She initially didn’t have a Michigan show on tap for her 2008 Sticky & Sweet Tour but eventually added a Ford Field performance.
