Dave Letterman Proves He’s Not Completely Irrelevant By Grilling Kim Kardashian
So Kim and Kourtney Kardashian went on Late Show With Dave Letterman last night, and he proved why you should watch his show at least once a year by giving Kim a good, Paris Hilton-style grilling about her past and current relationships. He pretty much started by saying, “I just wonder if you’re getting good advice”, which for me was a good indicator that there were going to be some actual serious questions instead of a gentle, hand-hold-y interview about her pregnancy, but he also brought in quite a bit of humor, so I was pleasantly surprised. There’s not a whole lot I can say that’s better than the actual things he said to her, so let’s go straight to the transcript, shall we?
Dave: You’re still married to your former husband. Kris Humphries, you’re still married to him?
Kim: Yes, I am.
Dave: And when are you gonna wrap that up?
Awww shit! Right out of the gate! I didn’t even know interviewers were still allowed to ask Kim about that, let alone so bluntly. And Kim even answers! I’ll give her small props for not immediately whipping out the “I’m not gonna comment on that” line. So then Dave gets into why the divorce hasn’t gone through yet:
Dave: What does Mr. Humphries, I guess it’s none of my business, but what does he want? Does he want his own show?
Kim: I can’t speak for Kris, but I just want him to be happy, and I want us to move on and that’s really what I want, is just to move on.
Dave: […] And he wants an annulment, is that right?
Dave: Why an annulment, what’s the difference here?
Kim: I don’t really know. I would love to give him an annulment, but the only legal way to get an annulment is if fraud were involved. So that’s what’s tricky. So he he is suing me for an annulment based on the fact that I frauded him into marrying him for publicity.
Ooh and real details, too! What is this, Christmas? I’d been wondering why they were still technically married, and I guess it’s because Kris wants an annulment instead of a divorce. But since they already made sexy time, they can’t do a strict annulment of the marriage unless fraud was involved. Tricksy tricksy. But then Kourtney gets involved, too, explaining that fraud can’t be involved because…
Kourtney: I think if she was gonna do it for publicity, she’d pick someone that people knew.
Dave: Wow. Ouch.
Um, yeah. Ouchies. Solid burn from the Kardashian side. Even more props awarded. This has been a big day for me kind of sort of gaining respect for you. Keep up the good work, people I try not to think about very often!
