Word has it that Kris Humphries is very pleased with the outcome of his divorce from Kim Kardashian.
Humphries had held out for months after Kardashian sought a divorce, seeking an annulment on the grounds that the 72-day marriage was a fraud perpetrated by Kardashian for reality TV ratings.
He stands behind his belief that the marriage was a fraud, even though he was not granted an annulment.
He decided he wanted the matter settled before the NBA playoffs begin. The Brooklyn Nets, for whom he plays, had their first playoff game Saturday. They beat the Chicago Bulls, 106-89.
Schussler adds art to Kona Grill
Add “interior designer” to the résumé of restaurant creator Steve Schussler.
Eden Prairie’s Kona Grill apparently had not a single piece of art on its walls until recently. “I come in here all the time,” said Schussler, whose “Green Acres: An Enchanting Event Center in a Historic Barn,” is just down the road. “The food’s phenomenal, the service is off the charts, but the place had a little bit of a cold atmosphere. There wasn’t one picture on the wall. Now it’s warm.”
Schussler spent five weeks going to a store — he wants to keep its identity his little secret — from which he bought approximately 52 pieces: paintings, a huge carved wood wall clock and glassware.
“I did it because when I come here, I want to feel good,” said Schussler when we met for lunch. “I’m on Kona’s board of directors. Why wouldn’t I want to help them out [since] this is what I do for a living?”
Interior design is not what I thought my friend, the creator of Rainforest Café, T-Rex and many other concepts, did.
“I create restaurants, and I do all the design in all of them,” said Schussler, CEO of Schussler Creative.
Cuteness in a Jiff
Jiff the Pomeranian had some work to do at Target last week, according to his handlers.
The “dog actor/model,” as his business card reads, also spread his adorableness around the Twin Cities’ TV stations. I enjoyed petting Jiff while he was appearing on FOX 9.
Except for a few growls for “Buzz” anchors Keith Marler, Alix Kendall and Tom Halden — perhaps because Jiff did not like the lighting in the sparkling new studio (where the haunting Jason Matheson smell seems to have been eradicated) — the pooch didn’t have much to say, as you can see on my video at startribune.com/video.
