Depending on who you talk to, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kim Kardashian[/lastfm]‘s divorce from husband Kris Humphries was either a total shock or an inevitable hot mess.

Carson has voiced his disdain for the entire Kardashian family numerous times, but keeping an open mind, he wanted to know what our loyal listeners thought of yesterday’s top story.

Little did we know that the phone lines would absolutely blow up with all your heated opinions!

Now that the dust has settled, we’re all starting to come to our own conclusions.

Soon after the news broke, Kris released an emotional statement:

I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.

Kim quickly followed up with her own words:

After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.

There’s only so much we can gather from these carefully-worded announcements, and it left all of us wondering, was their marriage ever actually real?

AMP Radio listener Jasmine is a big fan of the Kardashian shows, but even she saw this coming from a mile away!

You can tell from her wedding and everything that she was just settling. And I think she was settling because with her lifestyle, her always being busy and her always having jobs and stuff, there’s not a lot of people who are willing to settle with her.

One of our other callers, Berk, is frankly annoyed that Kim is making a mockery of the institution of marriage.

It really kind of got to me…Me and my partner have been together for 8 years and all we can call ourselves is domestic partners. We have no right to get married.

Take a listen to the full discussion below!

You all definitely made some interesting arguments and we can only imagine that the real answer will be revealed after more time passes.
