Why did Kim feel the need to disclose such radically ground-breaking information upfront on the program? Likely because last night's episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York was the first half of the season finale in a season that chronicled the breakdown of Kim Kardashian's 72 day marriage to Kris Humphries (who also probably has a heartÂ—the NBA being sticklers for physical fitness and all).
The timing of Kim's appearance on Live! and her chat with Kelly Ripa and her dropping the "I'm not happy" bomb on her TV show could not be coincidental. Kim K has an extremely tarnished public image at the moment, and Kelly provided her with an opportunity to preach to the choir of her consistent fans while potentially letting her touch the hearts of other women with the truth behind her crumbling marriage and the confirmation that there are parts of her that were not visible in her sex tape.
When the second part of the season finale of Kourtney and Kim airs, a follow-up interview with another personality will likely be on the Kardashian radar. Perhaps Kim will continue with the Wizard of Oz motif and confirm that she has a brain.
