Divorce is 'Tough' for Kim, Says Rob
November 01, 2011
Despite this morning's surprise announcement of sister Kim's intentions to divorce, Rob Kardashian remained remarkably undistracted on the dance floor, tying for second place with consistent frontrunner J.R. Martinez in week seven of the Dancing with the Stars competition.
Halloween night scared up some deviously fun routines from the pairs, but Ricki Lake and partner Derek Hough were the team to beat, snagging a spot at the top of the leader board with their Little Red Riding Hood inspired dance. Backstage, Lake revealed the ghoulish holiday was her "favorite" of them all (after her birthday, of course) which would explain how she found the energy to persevere through serious injury, and ultimately triumph.
Rob Kardashian enjoyed the spooky theme as well, but didn't find this particular night to be much different from any other day with the show. "Every week's Halloween, but it's really Halloween now so it's definitely fun," he said with a smile.
Appearing mostly somber during the interview, he let his dance partner do most of the talking. Rob did offer some words to The Insider in regards to the condition of his sister, who just hours before filed for divorce from her husband of two months, Kris Humphries.
Rob essentially credited the Kardashian/Jenner clan as Kim's support system through her difficult and likely bitter battle. "She's obviously going through a lot right now," Rob said. "It's a tough time but we're very supportive as a family."
Despite her recent troubles, Rob assures us that Kim is "doing fine."
