Jonathan Cheban's threat of taking legal action against Kris Humphries for calling him "gay" in an upcoming episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York isn't scaring Humphries, according to NYDailyNews.com.
An unnamed source of NYDailyNews.com says that Humphries "doubts the suit will ever materialize because the basketball player was told to make the remark on the 'scripted' reality show."
It's not only the lawsuit that Humphries has to worry about, but the backlash that will come along with him being portrayed as being insensitive to the gay community.
Cheban's suit has nothing to do with that aspect, as he asserts that he is indeed a heterosexual and would be suing him for defamation.
Humphries believes that the producer's scripting of the "gay" comment protects him from legal action, according to the article.
Should Kris Humphries be subject to legal action if the slur was scripted?
Say it ain't so. Could it be that Kourtney and Kim Take New York could be scripted? It's reality television after all, isn't it?
There has been speculation about the entire wedding being a giant sham. Would it really surprise anyone if the producers scripted this controversial moment in the show?
Regardless of how genuine the marriage was or how much of the show was scripted, the potential for legal action from multiple parties in the show remains a very real topic.
