Kim Kardashian is planning on using the upcoming season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York to rehab her image after she filed for divorce from Kris Humphries just 72 days into their marriage, following an elaborate and expensive wedding.
RadarOnline is reporting that Kim plans on showing herself as the "victim" and Humphries as the "lazy and insensitive" villain. In fact, Kim has full editorial control of the footage for her reality show and it was when she began watching the footage that she became "mortified" about the way he was treating her and decided to file for divorce.
"The marriage was already under a tremendous amount of stress, but she just couldn't believe that she had married this man that was treating her and her family like this," the source reveals.
Since filing for divorce, Kim has dealt with a backlash from fans who felt like the entire marriage was a publicity stunt and many were outraged that the couple reportedly pocketed $18 million from sponsors and endorsements from the wedding, although the Kardashians have denied this was the case. Some fans are so outraged, they have filed a "No More Kardashian" petition to get the family off of the air!
"Kim will be using the show to attempt to rehab her image," the insider says. "Kim has been telling her inner circle that she has worked very hard to get where she has, and she isn't going to let her marriage and subsequent decision to divorce Kris Humphries ruin that."
The new season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York airs Nov. 27 on E! Will you watch?
