A Fairytale Kardashian Lawsuit

By Drew Carroll

It just all seemed so sudden. I really feel like Ms. Kardashian is missing the bigger picture here.

Less than three weeks have passed since the shocking news that Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from her husband of 72 days, NBA player Kris Humphries. While it will no doubt take much longer to process our pain and loss, comedian Rob Delaney isn’t ready to give up on Kim & Kris just yet — and I don’t blame him.

Because true love (and lucrative television contracts) only come around so often, you have to fight for it when it does. Ms. Kardashian, you can’t quit now. If you do, Mr. Delaney will sue you. And I hereby offer my legal services

It won’t be easy.  After all, how can a court fully measure the emotional distress that Ms. Kardashian inflicted on the four million people who tuned in to watch her tie the knot this summer and now feel cruelly deceived? (Irony of ironies: it was E! Entertainment’s highest-rated program ever).

Come to think of it, there were 300 million other Americans who wanted nothing to do with the nuptials.  Can a court  measure their suffering, caused by the media circus brouhaha they were subjected to leading up to the big day?

But I must focus.  I’m not representing the 300 million. I’m just representing the four million devoted romantics, whom I will fight for in a class action, with Mr. Delaney as our named plaintiff. Are there grounds for a lawsuit against Ms. Kardashian, you ask?  Are you kidding?   (more…)
