NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York’s most famous divorcee-in-the-making rang in his 27th birthday this weekend, and it was a far cry from the Kardashian-style parties he had been subject to.

Kris Humphries spent his birthday with family and friends–you know, like normal people do.

The Nets forward left the party planning to his little sister,  Kaela, who according to RadarOnline.com rallied Kris’ basketball playing co-workers for  dinner at Abe & Arthur’s restaurant in Manhattan.

Meanwhile his 72-day marriage is being chronicled  n the E! Network’s Kourtney & Kim Take New York. But the amount of “reality” in the reality television program is questionable.

Just weeks ago, rumors circulated that Kim was manufacturing scenes in an LA studio for an episode allegedly shot in Dubai.

The point of the planted scene?  To foreshadow your divorce! Of course.

Kris, consider 27 a fresh start.  You’re old enough to rent a car, and you’re Kardashian-free. Life doesn’t get any better.
