With Humphries help Hawks' Schroder sinks Knicks
Yahoo News - about 1 month
Atlanta's German guard Dennis Schroder delivered the killing blow in the Hawks' 108-107 NBA victory over the New York Knicks on Monday -- with a big assist from Kris Humphries. Humphries had a good look at a potential game-winning shot, but instead tossed the ball to Schroder, who drained a three-pointer with 22 seconds remaining that saw the Hawks swoop for their ninth win in their last 10 games. "I thought Kris was unbelievable," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said of the power forward who came off the bench to score 14 points with seven rebounds and one -- crucial -- assist.

The NBA's Kris Humphries Dominated Michael Phelps In Swimming As A Kid
Huffington Post - 7 months
NBA player Kris Humphries of the Atlanta Hawks has an interesting past ― a marriage to Kim Kardashian and a childhood spent as a youth swim star. It’s the latter that’s making news lately. An article from the Hawks’ website reveals that Humphries topped pool god Michael Phelps ― he of the 23 Olympic gold medals ― in several events nationally as a 10-year-old, including the 50 butterfly, the 100 freestyle and the 200 individual medley.  Here’s some proof, courtesy of USA Swimming’s records of the best times in different events around the country in 1994-1995: Humphries also recorded a faster time than a kid by the name of Ryan Lochte in the 50 free.  Phelps did get the better of Humphries in the 100 butterfly and 200 free that year ― but still, Humphries has quite a past claim to fame for an NBA player who got pretty famous as a grown-up. Pool workout. Swimming isn't that easy anymore. A photo posted by @krishumphries on Mar 2, 2015 at 7:57pm PST ...

Huffington Post - 11 months
Damn, Gina!  Khloe Kardashian didn't mince words when sounding off on Kim Kardashian's ex-husband, basketball player Kris Humphries. During a Tuesday appearance on Snoop Dogg's Web series "GGN," Khloe reminded everyone that she warned Kim about marrying the basketball player.  "There's a ton of times that, like, I've told my sister the truth," Khloe said, before launching into an unfiltered attack on her former brother-in-law. "Like, when she wanted to marry Kris Humphries, I was like, he's a f**king loser, why are you marrying this f**king dog?"  Snoop let out a surprised "wow" as members of the audience cracked up from the super honest admission.

10 Pop Culture Moments That Changed The Way We View Divorce
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Forget the sweet-as-apple-pie portrayals of married life ushered in by June and Ward Cleaver: Divorce effectively stole the spotlight in the last decade. Turn on your television today and you're bound to see a character going through divorce (or at least a Real Housewife or two). Walk through your local bookstore (fingers crossed you still have one) and the new releases section likely features a memoir about someone's imploding marriage ("Divorce porn" as one writer labeled the burgeoning divorce memoir genre). And we're just scratching at the surface. Below, 10 moments in pop culture that shook up the way we view divorce. "Boyhood" gave us a warts-and-all portrayal of growing up as a child of divorce. In "Boyhood," acclaimed director Richard Linklater delivered a coming-of-age story that showed what it's really like to grow up with divorced parents. Linklater spoke about how growing up with divorced parents colored their direction and acting in the 2014 film. "[Growing up] ...

Kim Kardashian & Kanye’s Paris Wedding Will Be An E! Special Because That Always Ends Well
The Superficial - about 3 years
When Kim Kardashian got married to Kris Humphries, that ended only 72 days later making Kim a national punchline and exposing her family as the money-grubbing frauds that people should’ve known they are, except we don’t spend money on education anymore. That said, the E! producers did do a beautiful job planning – and paying – for everything, so why not do that all over again? It’s not like this shit means anything, amirite? Radar reports: “Kim persuaded Kanye to let the cameras roll because E! will pick up most of the cost of the wedding and it’s a lot easier for a network to deal with logistics of a foreign wedding than if it were just the two of them planning it.” The lovebirds won’t have to worry about security, intrusive photographers or guests with cell phones, explained the source, because the producers will handle the logistics. “Even though Kim’s marriage to Kris (Humphries) was a disaster, she was very happy with how the wedding and reception turned out,” said the inside ...

Knee Jerk Headlines and The Captain and Tennille
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Can't the media be more original? News outlets all over the world -- from The Guardian, to Time magazine and hundreds of blogs, radio stations and websites in between, have impulsively kicked off their stories this week with the exact same sentiment: Love couldn't keep the Captain and Tennille together. In all fairness, this clever headline entered my mind immediately upon hearing the news. But after some reflection, the real story is that love DID keep them together. Sure, they didn't last "'til death do us part," and "some sweet girl" didn't start hanging around, but Toni Tennille and Daryl Dragon achieved something many people can only dream of. Staying married for any length of time can be challenging. A union that lasts for nearly 40 years is like winning the lottery. We should all be so lucky. The United States ranks fifth in the world for the most divorces. The average duration of a marriage (that is terminated) is eight years, a number that has been consistent for ...

Blazers vs. Celtics - Hot Live Blog Action
The Portland Mercury - about 3 years
Live from the Moda Center as the Portland Trail Blazers host the Boston Celtics. Hey look, there’s Doc Rivers! Wait, nope, he’s gone. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett? Gone and gone. Rajon Rondo? He’s here, but recovering from a torn ACL. I guess that leaves, uh, Jeff Green? Yeah, Jeff Green! Go Celtics! Looking up and down this Boston roster is terrifying. It’s replacement-level talent, a horrorshow of castoffs, misfits, and spare parts. Kris Humphries is their highest paid player. Even with the recent addition of semi-competent Jerryd Bayless—hey, remember him?—this squad still resembles a D-League team as opposed to one that belongs in the NBA. That they have won thirteen games is a testament to just how well first year coach Brad Stevens is doing. I mean, Jordan Crawford (!!!) is arguably Boston’s best active player. If the Blazers don’t win by forty tonight it will be a disappointment. PRE-GAME: The Celtics have only won once in their last eleven games, free fal ...

The Family Photo Session
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Is it so wrong to want an amazing photograph of my family with my extended family with everyone's eyes open? IS THAT SO WRONG? As the great thinker Kim Kardashian once said, "You must go through Kris Humphries to get to Kanye West." Who knew that Kris Humphries was code for flesh-eating ants, blinding sun and screaming children? Of course, as I now stare at these glorious, serene images of flaxen-haired angels and sunbeams, I know it was all so very worth it, especially come holiday time, when you'll be sitting in a snow drift and we'll be sitting on a beach on your fridge, gloating. But back to Kris Humphries and the 8th circle of hell. The multi-generational family photo session is like walking over burning coals very, very slowly, 57 times, until everyone's mouths are stretched in grimaces that are less Hitchcock-ian and more Disney -- and this is once we've actually found the photographer, which takes a good half hour, because he's busy photographing 200 other families on the ...

Louis Tomlinson Gives Props to Weight Loss Supplement, Receives Flak
The Hollywood Gossip - over 3 years
Louis Tomlinson is under fire for making like Kim Kardashian. No, the actor didn't film himself having sex with Ray J. Nor did he earn $15 million for marrying Kris Humphries and then divorce him 72 days later. Instead, the One Direction star sent the following Tweet to fan yesterday: “Had an amazing @BooteaUK smoothie from Bootea.com this morning #booteashake.” Because Bootea is geared toward "weight loss," as advertised on its official website, many fans called out the artist for pushing a supplement on his 13.9 million followers. Was he paid for the endorsement? Is this really the kind of product he wants to push on teenage girls? Tomlinson ended up deleting the message, but not before it was re-Tweeted over 10,000 times and not before the company's website said The Bootea Shake had been sold out. “Louis tweeted about the drink as he had one this morning and enjoyed it," the singer's rep said in a statement. "However, he did not realize they are asso ...

Kim Kardashian Will Take Kanye West's Last Name After They Are Married
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, right? Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may have actually contemplated not giving their daughter North a last name, but now that the pair is engaged, the reality star plans on taking the rapper's surname as her own. E! News caught up with Kardashian at her birthday celebration in Las Vegas on Friday (Oct. 25) and the 33-year-old revealed that once she's married she'll start going by "Kim Kardashian West" (not hyphenated -- Kardashian will serve as a middle name). When Kim answered the question, it almost seemed as if she were entertaining the thought for the first time and suddenly decided, "Yes, I will take his name." If Kardashian does end up taking West's last name it could be seen as a good omen for the marriage; the reality star's momager had reservations about Kim taking on her ex-husband Kris Humphries' last name for branding reasons. “I don’t think she should take his name and be Kim Humphries … She needs to be Kim Kardashi ...
