Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian’s Staged Proposal?

Ever since Kim Kardashian announced her divorce from hoop star husband Kris Humphries after just 72 days, rumors have been rife that the whole thing was a sham.

The latest whisper is that Kim planned and staged Kris’s proposal to her.

The proposal was broadcast on the socialite’s hit E! reality TV show, Keeping up with the Kardashians, last spring, but lots of planning went into ensuring the romantic moment was captured on screen, sources close to the show have told Britain’s Daily Mail.

“Kim told Kris how, where and when to propose, it was absolutely no surprise to her whatsoever. First of all, Kris proposed in the middle of the day. And he had to do that because it would create better lighting to capture the moment.”

It was even Kim who came up with the idea to have the proposal spelled out in rose petals.

“Kim looked so surprised but she knew it was happening. She was in full hair and makeup, as she always is on the show. Kris wanted it to be very intimate and romantic, but all of his ideas were shot down by production officials and Kim.”

This is the second time in a month that the Kardashians have been accused of faking plotlines. Kardashian is under fire from fans after over a key scene from Kourtney & Kim Take New York. The scene, which sees Kim in the back of a limo with her mother Kris Jenner, features the two discussing Kim’s marriage and her feelings about her now-estranged husband.

But some suspect the entire thing may have been staged.

Blackened car windows and the lack of surrounding traffic noise and the overall sense of inauthenticity all suggesting the scene may not be entirely real.

Oh — and there’s that the fact that Radar snoops allegedly spied Kim and Kris leaving a Hollywood production studio in December wearing the exact same threads they wore in the scene in question — which was shot last October.

Kim, however, has long denied whispers that the short-lived was an elaborate reality show plot. The brunette bombshell said shortly after the marital bust-up:

“I think that’s really ridiculous that I have to even defend that.”
