Holly Robinson Peete might’ve gotten the axe from her CBS daytime show The Talk, but she still sounding off on Kim Kardashian’s over-hyped (quickie) marriage and giving insight on what some athletes are saying about the whole mess.
Peete told the Hollywood Reporter that she doesn’t feel bad for Kim Kardashian getting a divorce because she thinks the reality star was in it for the money and she doesn’t think it’s going to ruin Kim’s empire.
“If a sex tape doesn’t ruin your brand, how does a divorce ruin your brand?” Peete said. “The conversation that, well, America is upset with her, because she has no respect for the covenant of marriage is silly. This is all about money, and fame, and all those things. This is her brand. I think it’s going to be totally fine. It’s the next chapter. It’s now who’s she going to date next.”
Peete, who’s been married to former NFL star Rodney Peete, says she recently hung out with some pro basketball players and their wives over Halloween and after discussing the topic the consensus is that Kris got used.
“That’s all those guys can talk about. And the gist of it was they just felt so sorry for him, because they know he just got so caught up in stuff,” she said. “And I just feel bad that no one’s talking about him, I really do. I feel terrible for that boy. They were saying that when you’re known for marrying someone who has a sex tape out, that was all they can talk about, and how that isn’t sexy right there.”
“I feel terrible for that boy. I think he really loves her and he’s young and he’s not used to that type of world. I think he got used, I really do.”
Back in “reality land,” over the weekend, Kim reportedly flew to Minnesota to go meet with her estranged husband of a few months and the pastor who married them, to “talk about marriage, the divorce and their feelings.” It may not be a reconciliation, TMZ says but Kim wants to make sure she and Kris have closure.
Hmm “Kim Gets Klosure.” How surprised would you be if there were cameras trailing her in Minnesota and E! came out with a new 2 hour divorce special?
