As the cruel cynics and naysayers cry HOAX, Kim Kardashian is defending her divorshian in a 400-word memo to fans on her official website, excerpted here:
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.
I'm being honest here and I hope you respect my courage because this isn't easy to go through. But I do know that I have to follow my heart. I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn't turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.
There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this. I'm so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I'll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation.
I'm sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart and I believe now that I really am.
In Kardashianland, there is no visible line separating fiction from reality: have we been swindled by a family of con artists holding Bruce Jenner hostage? (That's one theory.) OR: Is Kardashian's love for Kris Humphries the real deal and we are terrible people for wondering whether this was all one big fat staged wedding? OR: Is Reggie Bush back in the picture? Perhaps the truth will come out someday. All we can do in this difficult, emotionally taxing time is hold vigil. [Grabs "Kim and Kris WHY" sign. Runs to the DASH store in Soho.]
