She thought she had found her happy ever after, marrying Kris Humphries in the elaborate wedding day of her dreams in August. But after just 72 days of marriage Kim Kardashian realised the relationship was over and filed for divorce.

While Kim is clearly preoccupied with what her future may or may not hold fans of the Kardashian family were treated to their latest reality installment on Sunday with the first episode of the new Kourtney and Kim Take New York show.
Around 3.2million fans tuned in to watch the trials and tribulations and it has been revealed that Kris Humphries also tuned in to watch his relationship with Kim deteriorate on screen.
The NBA star is said to be horrified with the way he was portrayed on screen and viewers saw him passing wind near Kourtney's face and telling his wife Kim she ate too much wedding cake.
While it has been reported that Kris also tuned in to watch the show on Sunday a source close to the basketball star told MailOnline he knew what was coming because he had seen the show weeks ago.
The source said: 'Kris reacted like any normal newlywed husband would, when a new sister in law brings a naked yoga instructor into his home, has a screaming 2 year old outside his bedroom door, with in laws constantly fighting.'
'Any normal newly married couple would get a room down the hall, but it’s the Kourtney and Kim show with many more episodes to go, not the Kris and Kim show.'
They added: 'Kris is very excited that the lockout is over and looking forward to start playing basketball again and moving forward with his life.'
