Reality TV was a little too real for Kim Kardashian. RadarOnline.com reports that seeing footage from her show Kourtney and Kim Take New York drove Kardashian to dump her husband Kris Humphries.

 

The gossip site claims that Kim has full editorial control over what goes in the shows, and, according to a source, when she began reviewing footage after production wrapped on the show in mid-October, she was “mortified” by her husband’s behavior and attitude.

 

“The marriage was already under a tremendous amount of stress, but she just couldn't believe that she had married this man that was treating her and her family like this.”

 

While Kim’s divorce has spawned an unbelievable amount of backlash, including a petition to pull all things Kardashian off the air, she will use her show to rehabilitate her broken image. The reality darling will be seen "as the victim, and Kris will definitely be the bad guy,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.

 

“Kim will be using the show to attempt to rehab her image. Kim has been telling her inner circle that she has worked very hard to get where she has, and she isn't going to let her marriage and subsequent decision to divorce Kris Humprhies ruin that.”

 

As for her supposed decision to lay low? Not likely, the source says. “Kim will be ringing in New Year's Eve in Las Vegas. The fact is Kim is extremely insecure, and she is truly afraid that if she were to disappear from the public eye, for even more than a week, her fame would disappear."
