(Newser) – It's not wise to get on the wrong side of a bride—even when she's about to leave bridedom for divorce. Kim Kardashian is suing the publicist who called her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries a "sham" staged to boost her reality program ratings. "It was obvious that it was staged," said Jonathan Jaxson recently. "There were contracts already in place for E! to film it." She knew "weeks before" she didn't want to go through with it because she's "never gotten over" her ex, Reggie Bush, he insisted. Kardashian, who has sicced lawyer Marty Singer on Jaxson, said the publicist's "defamatory" comments have hurt her reputation, and she's demanding $200,000 in damages, reports TMZ.
