Judge Declares Kardashian Divorce Is Ready For Trial

Pregnant reality TV star Kim Kardashian’s long-running divorce battle with NBA player Kris Humphries is set to go to trial on May 6.

The socialite, who is pregnant with boyfriend Kanye West’s child, filed to end her 72-day marriage to Humphries in October, 2011, and the former couple has been locked in a bitter legal wrangle ever since.

The sportsman, who is convinced Kardashian used their televised nuptials as a publicity stunt to boost her earnings, is seeking an annulment, but, in an interesting twist, his lawyer Marshall Waller quit this week after reportedly finding no proof of fraud to back up his client’s claims.

And on Friday Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon ruled Humphries had been given sufficient time to prepare his case and set a date for the divorce trial, according to TMZ.com.

Kardashian, who is due in July (and will be seven months pregnant during trial), will be hoping her divorce woes are behind her when she becomes a first-time mom.

Diane Von Furstenberg’s Wrap Dress Unwrapped!

It was the dress that made her famous, after all!

Diane von Furstenberg shot to fame in 1974 when she divorced Prince von Furstenberg, and consequently designed the wrap dress!

The independent lady said she wanted a dress that stood for femininity, individuality and inner strength. DVF opened up about the story after a story claimed she was a kept woman.

She revealed:

“As awful as that story was, it made me realize that I did not want to be a socialite. That was so far from the woman I wanted to be. I wanted to be independent. [Business] exploded. Usually the fairy tale ends with the girl marrying the prince But mine started as soon as the marriage was over.”

DVF also said that the decade had something to do with it, since the 1970s were about independence, adding:

“I loved the Seventies. It was between the pill and AIDS, and everyone enjoyed an amazing amount of freedom and exploration in so many ways – artistically, emotionally.”

When she made her comeback from tongue cancer in 1994, the wrap dress helped her skyrocket again! She explained:

“The first time I did it to be independent. The second time around was to show myself and the world that my success hadn’t been an accident. Now I am in the third phase, which is ‘I Mean Business’. This is a new starting line for me.”

We love her drive and passion for fashion! Even at 65 years old, she’s still on top of the fashion world!
