Tuning in to TV: Jeff Zucker named to lead CNN
Superior Court Judge Stephen Moloney told attorneys for Miss Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries to return to court in mid-February to set a trial date to either dissolve or annul the couple’s 72-day marriage. He didn’t set a deadline for depositions and other pretrial investigations to be completed, but indicated a trial could be held early next year if they are ready by Feb. 15.
Mr. Humphries, a power forward for the Brooklyn Nets, is seeking an annulment based on fraud, but his attorney said he needs more time to collect documents from companies that handle Miss Kardashian’s reality shows.
Miss Kardashian is seeking a traditional divorce, and her attorney Laura Wasser has cited the marriage’s short duration and a prenuptial agreement as reasons for why it should be resolved quickly.
“I don’t think his client has a fraud case,” Ms. Wasser said in court of Mr. Humphries’ attorney. “I think there’s a fishing expedition going on here.”
Mr. Humphries’ attorney Marshall Waller said he needed to be sure he had documents from E! Entertainment and NBC Universal before deciding the scope of his case, but that he was narrowing it down.
Miss Kardashian filed for divorce more than a year ago, citing irreconcilable differences just weeks after the couple’s star-studded and televised wedding. Mr. Humphries later filed for an annulment, claiming the marriage was based on fraud, but he has not laid out any specific evidence for his claim.
Miss Kardashian, 32, is the star of the E! Entertainment Television series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” the network’s top-rated show, which averaged more than 3 million viewers in its sixth season. She also appears on other series involving her family.
Shatner to attend ceremony to retire Navy’s Enterprise
Captain James T. Kirk will be on hand when the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise is officially retired.
A publicist for William Shatner told the Daily Press that the actor will attend the ship’s inactivation ceremony Saturday at Naval Station Norfolk, Va. Mr. Shatner is scheduled to perform Friday in Newport News, Va.
Mr. Shatner played Captain Kirk at the helm of the starship Enterprise in the “Star Trek” television series and several movies.
The world’s first-nuclear powered aircraft carrier returned to Norfolk from its final deployment earlier this month. Saturday’s inactivation will be its last public ceremony.
