The Word: The proper etiquette of a Kardashian divorce

Jenner has a lot to talk about.

Day three of Kardashian divorce coverage and we’re not slowing down — not when, like Pompeii, there are so many unanswered questions out there.

But they won’t be unexplained for long as —  wouldn’t you know it? — it just so happens Kris Jenner has a new book, “Kris Jenner: And All Things Kardashian,” to promote! The ladies of “The View” grilled Mama Kardashian yesterday, and whereas Jenner was very honest, she says she doesn’t know what her daughter will do with that $2 million dollar engagement ring. But we do, thanks to a quick chat with etiquette expert extraordinaire Lizzie Post, co-author of the new book “Emily Post’s Etiquette: 18th Edition.” And although “etiquette” and “Kardashian” go as well together as “Larry King” and “sex tape,” Post does have some good points. 

“That’s her ring to keep,” Post advises. “It’s legally hers and it’s up to her on what she decides to do with it. She did have a marriage. Just because it didn’t last very long doesn’t mean she didn’t follow through with her engagement.”

As for the news Kardashian is donating her millions of dollars worth of wedding gifts to charity, Post says that is wrong, wrong, wrong. “It’s totally inappropriate!” she laughs. “I know her heart is in the right place but the truth of the matter is, the intention behind a wedding gift isn’t to be donated — especially if she goes and gets the charity tax write-off for it — they are to be used for their life together. The appropriate thing is to return them to the person who gave it. And she should include a handwritten note.”

Post’s last piece of advice is that everyone (even big-headed gossip columnists) should be respectful.
 “Everyone should be very open-minded and respectful now,” says Post. “I don’t care who you are — having a marriage dissolve after that short of time is very painful.”

Lohan to go to jail

I feel like I’ve been writing about Lindsay Lohan for a thousand Kardashian marriages long (and, honestly, I probably have). The latest? The former starlet is going to jail for 30 days. After admitting to violating her probation for some DUI case or another, she will now have to report to jail by Nov. 9. After her release, she also must continue to do community service at the Los Angeles morgue and attend psychotherapy sessions, a judge announced at the hearing, per People magazine.
