Marriage can be tough, but luckily Kim Kardashian of two months ago has shared some cliché tips on what makes a union work. In the new issue of Marie Claire, Kim reveals that the secret to 72 days of marital bliss is, "Taking care of each other's needs and being there for someone unconditionally." The wise old married lady adds, "I feel like where we're at right now is the best time in my life ... We have a lot of trust, and I don't think either of us would do anything to break that. It makes life so easy." She also says of her future ex Kris Humphries, "He's such a good guy; he is so down-to-earth, and it's such a reality check. He is a normal guy, and I just want to chill out and be normal and not get glammed up all the time. He gets it." [Radar]
Kim's lawyer says that while she's abandoned her dream of being laid back and slipping out of her fake lashes every once in a while, her marriage was 100% for reals. Laura Wasser says, "Given what I know regarding that document, it is not plausible that this marriage was a sham." Given what we know about celebrity lawyers, it's not plausible that they would lie to the press about a client. [TMZ]

"I wasn't putting an exact deadline on my expiration date (as an actor) but I just see it coming and I do have an interest in the producing side," he says. [HR]
