While the rest of the world might be freaking out over Kim Kardashian divorcing Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage, the E! star has at least one person on her side.
Olivia Wilde, who just went through a divorce of her own, tells the New York Post that she understands what Kardashian is going through. “I empathize. It’s not easy,” she says. “[Divorce is] the hardest thing in the world.”
Wilde eloped with Italian prince Tao Ruspoli when she was 19, and the couple finalized their divorce last month after eight years of marriage.
“People judge you because divorce is seen as a failure,” Wilde says. “[Kim] took a risk. No one should be attacking her. Our attention should be focused on things that are truly scandalous.”
This is true — divorce is very difficult. But we have a feeling that much of the outcry is focused on the fact that Kardashian and Humphries made millions off their wedding ceremony when they knew there were issues in their relationship — not the fact that they’re getting divorced.
