Is this the beginning of the end for the Kardashians? Kim Kardashian’s made-for-tv wedding in August was heralded as America’s answer to Will and Kate’s April nuptials. Media and fans alike gushed over each of her three Vera Wang-designed wedding dresses, crossed their fingers and hoped for best when she and Kris Humphries exchanged “I do”s. But after their (unsurprising) divorce after a whopping 72 days of marriage, it seems the Kardashian backlash is gaining strength. The empire that Kris Jenner built doesn’t seem to be letting up in the constant pursuit of overexposure, with all the retail collaborations, design opportunities, and reality show deals (youngest of the brood Kylie and Kendall are in talks to star in their own reality show.) How long until this backlash topples the family into the dire straits of irrelevancy? Only 2012 can tell. But we can all agree that the Kardashian-Jenners might want to consider an extended vacation from the limelight.
