To the shock of, well, maybe those people who think reality TV is ABSOLUTELY REAL, Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kris Humphries, TMZ reports. She cites the age-old “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split in papers submitted today by celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, according to the site.
Update: Since the news was first reported, TMZ has posted court papers, and Ryan Seacrest, the exec producer of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, confirmed the news on his radio show. “She is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries this morning. I’ve spoken to her briefly, and she is sad and got caught up in all that was going on [in the wedding]. We’re going to have a statement from Kim in just a little while. There were rumors up until the wedding, and after the wedding a lot of rumors about it. It is true.”
“It’s always tough when you’re apart. But we do what we can to try and spend time together and make that time for each other,” Kim reportedly told Us Weekly, explaining why Kris wasn’t with her at Saturday’s Midori Green Halloween bash at LAVO in Las Vegas. In her super-hot Poison Ivy outfit, she didn’t exactly look like she was sad to be without her new husband, either.
Wow. I told you Andrew Garfield does well as an underdog. But not even I could have predicted that the future Mr. Peter Parker would defeat Mr. Franchise Jamie Campbell Bower in such a landslide victory!
Andrew pulled in 65 percent of the votes, easily snatching the Hotness title from the Harry Potter/Twilight Saga/Mortal Instruments star. Does Never Let Me Go have a cult following I didn’t know about? Was Bella working her super-shield to block votes for Caius? Or perhaps TheFABlife is home to a lot more comic book geeks than we’d ever imagined. I’m all for either of those explanations, and can’t wait to see more from both of these adorable Brits next year. In the meantime, Andrew would like to thank you:

It’s not every day you get a supermodel-media-mogul-TV-host-business-school-student in your office. We’re still a bit dazed by the thought of having Tyra Banks roaming through our halls as we sat, with terrible posture and last season’s knockoffs, at our unflatteringly lit desks. Oh, OK, they’re this year’s knockoffs. Anyway, it’s been a whole week since Miss TyTy was here for Big Morning Buzz Live, but we thought we’d take a look back at her very clever safety-pin-printed McQ dress and Walter Steiger pumps. Take a closer look after the jump.
We can hardly keep up with all the exciting Breaking Dawn developments coming up this week. After watching new clips, catching the premiere of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” and reading new interviews with Rob and Kristen about their sex scenes, we have something else for the Twi-hards today, via VH1′s Breaking Dawn Soundtrack Posted: The premiere of Iron & Wine‘s video for “Flightless Bird, American Mouth (Wedding Version).” And while the clip is all about the bearded band’s time in the studio, the song itself makes us conjure up visions of Bella and Edward floating through Alice’s Midsummer Night’s Dream wedding wonderland.
OK, so The Rum Diary is hovering at 51 percent approval from the critics on RottenTomatoes.com, but we’re going to go out on a limb here and say the Johnny Depp-starring movie based on Hunter S. Thompson’s first novel looks like fun. And if there were a Tomatometer for Amber Heard‘s red carpet appearances, she’d get at least a 99 percent Fresh rating. Even after the sudden cancellation of The Playboy Club, she’s been looking cool and confident and super hot every time there’s a camera near. This is one blond bombshell who knows she doesn’t have to go for the splashiest of fashions to show off her assets.
Aww, Hotness alum Ian Somerhalder just tweeted a photo of his “new friends,” a pair of crutches, leaning against what must be his chair on the set of The Vampire Diaries. He wrote about tearing his ACL earlier this month, so he must have had surgery. We can only imagine the number of ways in which a man who plays a reluctantly heroic vampire could hurt himself.
» Filming a scene in which Klaus throws Damon into some kind of body of water. While taking his wet shirt off, he must have tripped on something.
» While running to save Elena after she finally realized he is the psycho vampire for her, he heard we were in danger and changed directions too quickly.
» In between takes, he had to climb a tree to rescue a small kitten. The kitten is fine, by the way.
Umm… That’s all we got. Come up with your own explanations in the comments!

This job can be very difficult sometimes. We practically need to file for worker’s comp after this one: We’ve gathered every quote we could — from Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and a couple of special guests — about the Breaking Dawn sex scenes. Beginning with the latest, from KStew in her cover story for Glamour U.K.:
“It was so weird, it didn’t even feel like we were doing a Twilight film. I was like, ‘Bella! What are you doing? Wow! What is happening here?! It was very surreal. We [originally] got rated R. They re-cut it.” — Kristen in Glamour U.K.
“You just get lubed up and jump right into it! Everyone always says it about sex scenes in movies — it’s really awkward and blah, blah, blah — but it is! You’re playing Twister.” Robert to MTV News
Some kids have all the luck. And fabulously wealthy parents. At a charity auction for amFAR in Hollywood last night, Sandra Bullock‘s agents, Kevin Huvane and Bryan Lourd, dropped $14,000 for a print of Andy Warhol’s Peaches as a gift to baby Louis Bardo, Us Weekly reports. Who, um, is 1 year old. Now, I don’t remember being 1, but I’m pretty sure at that age I was about as interested in a piece of cardboard as I would be in a pop art masterpiece. I’m sure he’ll grow into it. And also, it’s for AIDS research, so you can’t really fault that kind of extravagance.
Someone forgot to invite me to this benefit, so I’m not entirely sure which version of the print they bought, but here’s one, just so you get an idea. Nice bright colors, kind of like you’d see in a picture book. But picture books are for peasants.
So there are all these Breaking Dawn behind-the-scenes videos and clips and photos coming out, we almost feel like we’ve seen the whole movie (but still, we can’t wait for the MTV First with Robsten next week). And then there was the squeeing over the Hunger Games posters. And the voting for Mortal Instruments star Jamie Campbell Bower in our Hotness poll. But amid all this young adult novel-to-movie noise we’ve got to point out something really exciting. Myra McEntire‘s Hourglass, one of my personal faves of the year, has just been optioned by Fox.
And guess what: It’s not even about vampires or angels or a dark dystopian future. It’s actually one of the most original tales of time travel I’ve ever seen. Teenager Emerson Cole thinks she’s been seeing ghosts for the past four years. But when she comes back home to Tennessee from boarding school, Michael, the man her brother hires to help eliminate her “hallucinations” does the exact opposite. He informs her that she’s actually seeing people from the past. And the fact that he’s a super-hot college student makes all this sci-fi adventure all the more enticing, we think.
Well, no one’s on fire and no one is being stung by tracker jackers, but we’re sure Hunger Games fans are buzzing with excitement about the eight new posters showcasing the eight main characters. After you’ve calmed yourselves down a bit, let’s take another look at these profiles:
Katniss (debuted on Yahoo! Movies): She looks a bit softer than I picture the tough District 12 tribute — like the camera caught her thinking about her mother and Prim back home. But there’s still something to the set of her jaw that hints at her unfailing strength. Also, very subtle how they made Katniss face to the right while all the others face to the left.
Peeta: As our friend Amy at Hollywood Crush (where this poster debuted) says, “Peeta appears determined and yet somehow vulnerable, all at the same time. (Not to mention he looks so young, right?!)” He certainly doesn’t look like a kid who’s ever fought for his own survival, like Katniss has.
