Kim Kardashian has been down in the divorce dumps, so to speak, for months. Her splashy wedding and short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries turned 2011 into a nightmare year. She can't even take the quick road to dissolution, since Kris reportedly refuses to settle out of court, says Daily Mail. Their equally splashy divorce will open all sorts of things to the public, which Kim might want to keep private. Her ongoing troubles have left the usually smiling reality star somewhat lonesome and vulnerable.
So what's one way to turn a frown upside down? Get some sun. And sand. And frolic a bit in the ocean surfÂ—which is just what Kim Kardashian and her best friend, publicist Jonathan Cheban, have been doing. L.A. has been too cool and gray, so Kim and Jonathan headed for Miami's famous beaches. Kim has been photographed, of course, but she treated herself to some actual swimwearÂ—meaning bikinis with enough fabric to let the wearer actually swim. In the ocean, yet. Kim looks fabulous on a purple number trimmed in tan, splashing in ankle-deep foam. She may even have gotten the suit wet, although she appears to have been caught with her shades in her in her hand.
Another suit, in elegant black trimmed with gold, looks more like the photo-op only kind. Anyway, a girl can't have too many bikinis, right?
The divorce could get really messy, hanging on Kim's possible intent to commit fraud. Jonathan hopes he will not have to testify. If so, "I'll do what I need to do," he says. That has an interesting ring to it.
