Kris Humphries might not be the only victim of Kim Kardashian's decision to divorce after 72 days. The Kardashian family's reality show franchise could now also be in jeopardy. Producers counted on Kim's marriage to boost ratings for the second season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and it was generally believed that Kim married Humphries because it was "good for the show," said a source. “Everyone knew it wasn’t a storybook marriage and it wasn’t going to last that long, but I don’t think anyone thought they’d split up so soon,” the source told ABC News.

Kim's marriage is a key focal point of the new season, which starts later this month, and filming has already been completed—without any mention of divorce. With Kris already bumped from the picture, executives are holding "emergency meetings" to decide what to do next, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Kim is already in Australia, without cameras, to promote a fashion line she has launched with her sisters. (More Kim Kardashian stories.)
