“I like the Kardashians. I’m a fan. I watch their show,” Leakes says. “And I think it’s just crazy that a petition is going around. It’s not going to stop anything. Those Kardashians will be back.”

Leakes also says that she understands what Kim is going through with the media and the public after filing for divorce from her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries. Leakes is currently separated from her husband, Gregg Leakes, and met with lawyers for advice on filing for divorce last season on her Bravo show.

“I’ve been separated from my husband and going through a divorce, a separation is very difficult,” she says. “I feel bad for her, because people are judging. I’m not sure if it was a real marriage or not. But, I think she’s beautiful and I’m a fan.”

Regardless of whether the petition will have any effect on E!'s decision to move forward on the various Kardashian family shows, it has recieved a great number of supporters. In less than 24 hours, the petition has grown from 11,000 signatures to nearly 80,000.
