Kardashian apologizes to fans for failed marriage

LOS ANGELES>> Kim Kardashian says she never meant to hurt anyone by ending her marriage after just 72 days.

The 31-year-old reality TV star posted a message to her fans on her website Tuesday, one day after filing for divorce from pro basketball player Kris Humphries, whom she married in a lavish ceremony that aired as a two-hour TV special on E!

Kardashian says that while she "married for love" and "would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show," she admits that she "got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show."

"When I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and I didn't want to disappoint a lot of people," she writes.

Kardashian says she takes "full responsibility for my actions and decisions," adding "it just didn't turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for."

"I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed into something too soon," she says.

Kardashian and Humphries dated for nine months before marrying in August.

She goes on to say that reports that she made millions of dollars off the wedding "are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this." Twitter and Facebook were filled with anti-Kardashian sentiments on Tuesday, including some photos that were reposted thousands of times.

One photo showed the happy wedding couple gazing adoringly at each other above large type that read, "If you think gay marriage cheapens the institution, two words ... Kim Kardashian."

In her post, Kardashian says she plans to "donate the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation."

The couple's $172,000 wedding registry included such items as a $1,650 coffee pot and two $1,250 sterling silver vegetable spoons.

Kardashian does not mention Humphries, who last played for the NBA's New Jersey Nets, in the 370-word message.

Its a new twist on marrying for money.... they made millions by selling the TV & print rights. No wonder she can afford a 6-figure a year PR person to keep her name in print every day..... the media should ignore her.

The media and people should ignore the whole family. The "E" channel has now become "The Kardashian Channel." When I'm scrolling through the guide it's all that ever seems to be on. I don't know of anyone watching this stuff, or at least they aren't admitting to it. Who are you people and don't you have better things to do?

and yet you spend time reading this article and posting? lol. why do people waste their time reading, blogging, etc. if you hate them so much? just ignore the articles as you do the show and get on with your life. what did kim k. do to you anyways? if anything, she spends a lot of money and stimulates the economy... so nothing wrong with that in my opinion!

I don't even watch the "E" channel anymore because I really do not care to watch their ridiculous reality shows. I feel for all the people that sent gifts and spent money for their wedding gifts and now the marriage has ended. How shameful!

SA, please I'm begging you and I don't beg. Please don't post any more articles on the Kardashians, Justin Bieber, or Ryan Seacrest. These are no talent people who, for some unknown reason, has grabbed the media attention. Don't get me wrong, I don't read any articles about them but I do have to see the headlines and it's enough to make one want to heave.
