Kim Kardashian's Kitten, Mercy, Has Died

Illustration for article titled Kim Kardashian's Kitten, Mercy, Has Died

Oh my fuck, this is the saddest thing, not to mention positively Dourtney-esque: Kim Kardashian's four-month-old teacup Persian, Mercy has died. After discovering she was allergic to cats, Kardashian had passed Mercy on to Khloé Kardashian Odom's assistant, Sydney Hitchcock, whose 12-year-old cat had just died. All was well until November 26, when Mercy was rushed to the vet with a fatal stomach infection. Nothing was going to save her, so she was euthanized. Kardashian writes on her blog:

It broke not only my heart that little Mercy died at only four months old, but Sydney's too. Mercy was a gentle and loving kitten and we are all going to miss her so much. Thanks to Sydney for making Mercy's short life one filled with love.

Can someone explain to me exactly what the deal is with all this Leann Rimes nonsense? Obviously having it come out that she had an affair while married is big news and would make people really angry, but didn't it happen several years ago now? And tons of celebrities are known to have cheated (Angelina and Brad are the big examples, but also Ashton Kutcher and several others) but mostly the media talks about it for a little while and then forgets. Did she really do something uniquely terrible that is causing this media frenzy, or is there something else going on? I haven't been following the story but it just seems like a huge amount of coverage for an affair of a not-that-famos person.
