Kim Kardashian divorce filing born of career concerns

Daybreak Daily’s afternoon peek at the Kim Kardashian, er, pop-culture world delves into a variety of reasons behind the breakup as well asScarlett Johansson talking about her nude photos.

SHOW PREVIEW PROVIDES CLUES: Per People, “Husband and wife for just weeks, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were already sounding like an old married couple.

"How am I going to have my career and live in Minnesota?" Kardashian gripes to Humphries in a scene from a preview clip of her E! show Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

"Baby," Humphries snaps back, "by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you."

Not long after the episode was shot, Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce from the 26-year-old pro basketball player. Now, the verbal exchange provides just one clue of what went wrong. The pressures of filming the show, being scrutinized by the media, managing conflicting work schedules and rushing into their relationship all appear to have contributed to the demise of the duo's 72-day marriage."

MEANWHILE: Per E!, “Kris Humphries may be "devastated" that his 72 days of marriage to Kim Kardashian are over, but he's not going to sit at home and sulk. Instead, Kris is hosting a party in Vegas on Saturday, just days after Kim's Halloween divorce filing. Unlike his chest-baring invitation, we presume he'll be wearing a shirt for his appearance at Chateau nightclub.”

BAD NEWS FOR LOHAN: Per Radar, “The Los Angeles City Attorney and the Los Angeles County District Attorney will ask the judge to formally revoke Lindsay Lohan's probation and send the embattled starlet to jail for at least 90 days, during her court appearance Wednesday, is exclusively reporting. Lilo will be in front of Judge Stephanie Sautner for a probation violation hearing at the LAX Airport Courthouse.

The Mean Girls star had her probation revoked two weeks ago by the judge for failure to appear at her court ordered community service program at the Downtown Women’s Center on multiple occasions in connection with her shoplifting case.”

SCARLETT DISHES ABOUT NUDE PICS: Per Vanity Fair, “Scarlett Johansson does not seem the least bit ashamed when discussing her recent nude-photo scandal with Vanity Fair contributing editor Peter Biskind. “I know my best angles,” she says with her trademark insouciance.

“They were sent to my husband,” now ex Ryan Reynolds. “There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s not like I was shooting a porno.” She adds saucily, “Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.”

BRITNEY'S JONAS POLE DANCE: Per the Huffington Post, “Joe Jonas probably didn't expect this when he signed on to tour Europe with Britney Spears.

The pop queen and the solo JoBro performed live at Wembley Arena in London Sunday night, and it's fair to say that purity rings were not being worn on stage.

Spears, singing "Lace and Leather," called up Jonas to sit in the middle of the action. Conveniently, right in front of a pole.”

AT LONG LAST, A SMILE: Per Rolling Stone, “Tuesday, 44 years after it was supposed to have been released, Capitol Records is issuing an official edition of "Smile" that showcases the original Beach Boys' recordings.

This version uses as a blueprint the 2004 "Brian Wilson Presents Smile," in which the work's chief architect reconstructed and completed what he hadn't been able to do more than three decades earlier. Capitol also has created a five-CD box set that includes extended segments from the recording sessions that show the album as a work in progress.”

DANCE FOR THE ROSES: Per Access Hollywood, “The grand marshal for Pasadena’s 123rd Tournament of Roses is a certain crowd pleaser.

Leading the Jan. 2 procession of floats will be J.R. Martinez, the “Dancing With the Stars” contestant, “All My Children” daytime soap opera star and Iraq War veteran seriously burned when his Humvee hit a land mine. He will also toss the coin before kickoff of the 98th Rose Bowl Game in honor of all wounded military personnel."{ } { }

THE DEFENSE RESTS: Per TMZ, “The fat lady is about to sing in the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter trial -- because the defense has rested its case and are now gearing up for closing arguments.

Closing arguments are scheduled to begin Thursday morning -- but the defense won't be submitting any new evidence ... so if they haven't needled the jury with reasonable doubt yet in the death of Michael Jackson, they're facing an uphill battle.”

INDUSTRY LOSS: Per the AP, “Producer and director Gilbert Cates, who oversaw a record 14 Academy Awards ceremonies and founded the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, has died. He was 77. The Directors Guild of America confirmed the death Tuesday.”
