(Newser) – Only in the world of reality TV would your blessed union spawn a product-placement-extravaganza wedding that earned you $17.9 million, followed by a ridiculous post-wedding media blitz in which you say your vows again, followed by a four-hour-long TV special about the whole thing, followed by … rumors that the marriage is crumbling. But such is the life of Kim Kardashian, whose eight-week-old union with Kris Humphries will apparently fall apart any day now. “I don’t know when they’ll announce the split or why they got married in the first place but they are done,” a source tells the Daily Mail.

As proof, another source says that Kim’s agent has dropped Kris as a client, and that—horrors!—there aren’t any plans for a reality show featuring the couple. The New York Post notes that other magazines are reporting similar rumors: Star says Kim may have consulted a divorce lawyer; Life & Style claims Kris got in touch with an ex. In other troubling news, the Kardashians have apparently been told that President Obama is not a fan. And they’re just shocked, shocked, that he doesn’t want his daughters watching their show, sources tell TMZ. They’re particularly surprised at the news because they apparently believe their show is educational, featuring as it does real girls tackling real problems—including health and relationships.
