Reality TV Recap - Six Obvious Signs Kris & Kim Were Doomed

Kourtney & Kim Take New York debuted their latest season last night on E!. And like everyone predicted, the demise of Kim and Kris Humphries' short-lived marriage will be the focus of the season. The show opened with tabloid fodder about the pair after the divorce was announced and then rewound 8 weeks prior, which was shortly after their honeymoon and right before the drama really took its toll. The Kardashian clan is still denying rumors that this was contrived for TV (side eye) but at least now suckers Stans devoted fans can get to watch the disaster unfold. We spotted six painfully obvious signs that Kris and Kim were doomed in last night's episode alone. See our top picks below: 

Newlyweds in a Hotel

Kim and Kris were forced to live in a hotel room with the wife's sister, boyfriend and a baby. It's obvious that money wasn't an issue so wtf! That's bound to drive anyone batty but then you add cameras to the mix? Blank stare.

Feeling Married

Kris: "This is so different. I really don't even feel married right now."

Kim: "I hope you do."

VIBE: No newlywed wants to hear their spouse saying that they don't feel married. That translates to a license to wild out. Imagine if the NBA were still in session--groupies galore.

Control/Space Issues

Kris: "She put stuff in the closet...and I threw it on the floor. Just to make a statement."

Kim: "I can't live with Kris! He's just like, such a slob. I'm not used to anyone in my space, let alone in my space and messing it all up."

VIBE: Kim is obviously a neat freak to the point where it's borerline OCD but how could she not be used to anyone in her space with all those siblings? Translation: Kim is really saying "I feel crowded and I want to get away from you."

NY or Minnesota?

He wanted to move to Minnesota, she wanted to stay in the big city for her career. Neither wanted to compromise other than possibly living a long-distance marriage. Um, ok...

Excessive Force

Kim: "You're so forceful!" Kim says, as he rips her camera out of her hands.

Kris: "You're my wife now. It's gonna take a lot to get rid of me."

VIBE: That sounds ominously like a stalker.

Opposites Don't Always Attract

Kim: "It's this fun, glamorous party, and it's important that Kris is a part of this." She was trying to convince Kris to go to an event.

Kris' Response: "You care about that. I don't give a f---."

VIBE: He knew what he was getting into and decided to go there any way. #Fail.

Cardi B Talks Stripping, Nicki Minaj, And Fame On 'CBS Sunday Morning'

Nothing was off limits during Cardi B's recent interview on CBS Sunday Morning. During the special, which aired on Sunday, Dec. 9, Cardi got candid with interviewer Maurice DuBois about her humble beginnings in the strip club, her beef with Nicki Minaj, and how she's been handling mega-stardom.

In case you missed it, check out a list we compiled of the Grammy-nominee's statements below, and watch the interview in the video above.

She called her beef with Nicki Minaj "unnecessary"

Cardi and Nicki Minaj have been at war for most of the year. The beef may have started following their collaboration on Migos' "Motorsport." Over the course of the year, it escalated to a physical altercation during a New York Fashion Week event, as well as many public jabs over social media. While both rappers previously agreed to turn their attention elsewhere, Cardi reflected on how the entire situation was "bad for business."

"A lot of people like to say all publicity is good publicity. To me it's not. That takes away [from] people paying attention to your craft," she said of her feud with Minaj.

Working at the strip club gave her power and a passion for performing

As you may know, Cardi B was previously a stripper before she gained mega-stardom. While she has shared mixed reviews about her past in various interviews, she told CBS that she thought stripping had a positive impact on her life.

"A lot of women here, they taught me to be more powerful," she said. "I did gain, like, a passion and love [for] performing. It made me feel pretty... I'm glad for this chapter in my life. A lot of people always want to make fun of me -- 'Oh, you used to be a stripper!' -- I don't ever regret it, because I learned a lot. I feel like it matured me. My biggest ambition was money. That's what these women put in my head: nothing is important but the money."

Her ability to connect with her fans stems from her accessibility 

Cardi undoubtedly understands how to connect with her fans and followers better than many of her counterparts. After all, the rapper built up her network in such a short amount of time. She attributes her likability to being "reachable."

"When I talk, I make a lot of mistakes," she continued. "Like, I might say words, and the words are not even in the dictionary. But people still like it because you can tell that I'm saying it from the heart."

She never imagined that she could make it this far

Before she made it big, Cardi admitted that she didn't expect her music to reach No. 1 on the Billboard charts. When reflecting on her first hit single "Bodak Yellow," she stated that she had low expectations at first.

"It hit at 85, and I just felt like, alright, I already did enough," she said. "Then when people was telling me, like, there's a possibility of going No. 1, I was like, 'Oh my gosh -- if I go No. 1, this is going to be crazy... and then it did. I just felt like I was on top of the world."
