Two Kardashian Kouples Krumble

Eight weeks before their 72-day marriage collapsed, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries jetted to New York City. The honeymoon phase came to an abrupt end over naked yoga, sharing a closet, a too-playful baby Mason, and get this—a broken toenail. They were not alone in their marital un-bliss. Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick's relationship also showed evidence of strain.
Kim and Kris' whirlwind romance took a complete 180 when they traveled East. While packing, Kris said, "You're my wife now. It's going to take a lot to get rid of me." Then came New York and cramped quarters in a two-story, three bedroom luxury hotel suite. Kim had trouble transitioning to co-habiting and dealing with Kris' clutter.
Meanwhile, Kris couldn't adjust to the noises associated of an early-waking baby in the house and a "classic over-reactor" Kim, who threw a hissy fit over a ruined pedicure. After coming home to the sisters and two Dash employees doing naked yoga with a male instructor, he confided in a friend at a bar: "This is not working out. I need to make a change." By the end of the episode, Kris announced, "I love you so much, but I think I'm going to go to Minnesota to train." So, Kim's marriage lasted 72 days in real life, but less than 72 minutes in "reality" life.
On to the bickersome duo of Kourtney and Scott. Upon checking into the hotel, their unconventional sleeping arrangements were revealed. Kourtney and son Mason took one bedroom and Scott would be sleeping solo in a separate room in their suite. Kris' unfiltered opinion chimed in, calling his in-laws' relationship "very strange," and even told Kim he would like to pay for them to stay on another floor in the hotel. Scott quickly came to his own defense, tweeting, "Just want to clear up the reason why we don't sleep in bed together. I'm not a good sleeper and with Mason in bed I can't fall to sleep!"
