We never thought we’d say this, but we’re actually starting to feel bad for Kris Humphries. Getting married to Kim Kardashian certainly must have its upsides, but lately it seems like this dude keeps getting thrown under the bus. He went from being a pro-baller to being mocked by his team, controlled by the meddling mother-in-law to end all meddling mother-in-laws, and having his emotions/stupidity exploited on national television. Kris is a lamb among the Kardashian Klan’s wolves. Even TMZ couldn’t deny his bewildered look as he was being dragged from one PR stunt to another. The guy never had a chance. And now to top it all off, Kris had to share a flight seated next to his wife’s sex tape partner, Ray J. Fasten your seat-belts folks, because we’re gonna experience some turbulence.
The pair came face to face for the first time this Sunday on a Delta flight from LA to New Orleans. Humphries boarded in Minnesota, and sat down directly across the aisle from none other than Ray J. When he realized the identity of his plane-mate, Kris reportedly moved to a seat in front of the rapper and stared “stone faced” ahead for a period of what onlookers called “awkward silence.” Ray J tried to break the ice by going over and congratulating him on his marriage, but Kris was having none of it according to the New York Post. Apparently he acted like he had no idea who Ray J was, but Ray called BS. “Come on, you know who I am,” he reportedly said. “I just want to say congratulations.” Busted, Kris admitted ‘Oh yeah, yeah, I’m sorry I know who you are.” And thus began what must have felt like the longest flight in history.
Whoever handles the seating arrangements for Delta clearly has a dark sense of humor. Unless it was Kim herself, determined to capture the encounter on hidden cameras for an episode of her show. We hate to say it but…we’d totally watch that one. Hang in there
Kate Middleton Kris!
