Stargazing | Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage over; Harry Potter anniversary

Dream divorce anyone?

Well, that marriage lasted longer than we thought it would.

Kim Kardashian

, 31, is reportedly filing for divorce from

Kris Humphries

just 72 days after their over-the-top, made-for-TV, glamorous dream wedding.

TMZ was among the first to report that Kim will be seeking a divorce on those (overused) grounds of “irreconcilable differences.” She’s reportedly hired top divorce attorney

Laura Wasser

, who has represented other high-profile celebs including

Britney Spears

and

Maria Shriver.

Anyone who watched the (overhyped) two-part special about the lead-up to Kim’s wedding saw the handwriting on this wall. Where was the respect? Where was the love? Nowhere to be found in all the glitz and bling.

But talk about a bad day for Kris, 26, who is currently out of work because of the NBA lockout. Reports also surfaced Monday that he’s a victim of investment fraud, losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a scam run by a man who actually attended the wedding.

The new daytime Queen

All hail the new Queen of daytime talk.

Will Smith’s

and

Queen Latifah’s

production companies, along with Sony Pictures Television, are creating a new syndicated talk show starring the Queen herself. That show, which will debut in 2013, along with other new talk shows hosted by

Katie Couric

,

Steve Harvey

and a host of others, will try to fill the void left by Oprah’s departure.

This will be Queen’s second shot at a daytime talker. “The Queen Latifah Show” ran for two seasons in the late ’90s.

Taylor: Not nude

That blonde lying topless on a bed might look like

Taylor Swift

, but the songbird says it’s not her, and she’s ready to take the matter to court.

Over the weekend, gossip website Celebjihad.com posted a photo of a Taylor lookalike, claiming that it was Taylor.

Taylor was not amused. Her team sent a cease-and-desist letter to the site, which continued to run the photo anyway.

A Potter anniversary

Monday was the 30th anniversary of the death of Harry Potter’s parents at the hands of the evil Lord Voldemort. Potter fans in droves took to the Internet and observed a moment of silence to mark the deaths of James and Lily Potter.

“RIP James and Lily Potter,” wrote one fan. “Without your sacrifice we would never have met

Emma Watson

.”

Wrote another: “It’s a sad state of affairs when we have trending topics saying goodbye to fictional characters.”

Amy’s last words

What we want for Christmas: The new album of 12 previously unreleased

Amy Winehouse

songs coming out on Dec. 5.

“I spent so much time chasing after Amy telling her off that I never realized what a true genius she was,” Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, told the British media on Monday.

“It wasn’t until I sat down with the rest of the family and listened to this album that I fully appreciated the breadth of Amy’s talent, from jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it really took my breath away,” he said.

The album will include “Body and Soul,” the song Amy recorded with

Tony Bennett

before her death of alcohol poisoning on July 23. A dollar from each album sold will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which will help people fighting addictions.

Clooney: A father figure

In a new book about their failed two-year relationship, Italian TV personality — and recent “Dancing With the Stars” contestant —

Elisabetta Canalis

speaks lovingly of

George Clooney

.

She told Italian journalist

Bruno Vespa

that George “has been special for me, and very important, just as a father would be. … Between us there was more of a father-daughter relationship. I was unable to clarify this up ’til now.”

Is that legal in Italy?
