Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian missed filming on her reality series on Monday as she deals with her marriage breakdown.
The socialite and reality TV star was absent when other members of her family went to watch the taping of Dancing with the Stars – in which her brother Rob Kardashian is competing – and eat in a restaurant, which was filmed for the seventh series of reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Kim, 31, spent the weekend in Minnesota with estranged husband Kris Humphries, whom she filed for divorce from citing Irreconcilable Differences after just 72 days of marriage last week.
Kim's decision not to appear left her mother Kris Jenner, sister Khloe Kardashian Odom and her husband Lamar Odom, sister Kourtney Kardashian, her boyfriend Scott Disick and their baby, Mason, to film for the series at El Floridita Cuban restaurant in Los Angeles. They were joined at their table by professional dancer Mark Ballas, who had given Kim and Kris dancing lessons ahead of their wedding.
As the party left they were asked about Kim, with Mark saying he has been speaking to her "all the time", adding: "She's going to be fine."
Lamar added to E! news: "I think she is good."
Kris said she expects Kim to throw herself into her work as she tries to deal with the split, but promises her family will be looking out for her.
She told People.com: "This is an incredibly difficult time for her. She has always tended to bury herself in work in times like this, but we're all here for her and she has a big support system in all of us"
Ironically, Kim's next work engagement is set to fly to Atlanta, where she will appear in a new film called The Marriage Counselor.
