Olivia Wilde says she empathizes with Kim Kardashian over divorce
Some people might be quick to sign the petition to get the Kardashian family off the airwaves, following the media hype over Kim Kardashian's recent divorce filing.But there is a star that can relate to what the reality actress is going through.
When asked about Kardashian's divorce, former "House" actress and "In Time" star Olivia Wilde told the New York Post, "I empathize. It's not easy. It's the hardest thing in the world."
Update: 4:40 p.m. PT Wilde clarified her statements on Twitter saying, "I've never seen the Kardashian show. My point was that our collective brainpower is wasted on judging her. Let's end wars and feed people."
In early March, Wilde filed for divorce from husband Tao Ruspoli after announcing their separation in February. The divorce was finalized on September 29.
"People judge you because divorce is seen as failure. [Kim] took a risk. No one should be attacking her. Our attention should be focused on things that are truly scandalous," she added.
The 31-year-old "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star filed for divorce after at a Los Angeles court. The couple's date of separation is also listed as October 31. The couple was married for 72 days. The 31-year-old cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. This was Kardashian's second marriage. She and Humphries, 26, have no children.
On Wednesday it was reported that an online petition began to boycott the Kardashian family from being on television.
The petition, called "No More Kardashian" is available on gopetition.com and at press time has over 124,000 signatures. There's also a Facebook page dedicated to the cause with over 51,000 fans at the time of this writing.
"'Keeping up with the Kardashians' is just not viewing that we the public, would like to see from your network. Enough is enough," the preamble to the petition states.
