Kim Kardashian Marriage Number Two & Komplete Kardashian History
Who is Kim Kardashian and how is she famous?
Kim Kardashian is the daughter of Kris Jenner and the late Robert Kardashian Sr most famed for being OJ Simpson’s defense attorney. Kris Jenner (previously Kardashian) divorced Robert Kardashian in 1990 and tensions between the pair were exacerbated with Robert representing OJ during the OJ Simpson trial, with Kris being very close to the murdered ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson. Kris later remarried Bruce Jenner an Olympic Champion in 1991. Robert Kardashian Sr died in 2003 from oesophageal cancer. Kris and Robert Kardashian Sr share four children together, Kourtney Kardashian (32 yrs), Kim Kardashian (30 yrs), Khloé Kardashian Odom (27 yrs) and Robert Kardashian Jr (24 yrs). The Kardashians have two half sisters from their mother’s second marriage to Bruce, Kendall Jenner (15 yrs) and Kylie Jenner (13 yrs).
Kim was once best friend to Paris Hilton and was her personal stylist. To most people Kim Kardashian became famous from her leaked sex tape (which went viral) with her ex-boyfriend R&B singer and Brandy Norwood’s brother, Ray J. Kim Kardashian is now a very profitable personality who was the forerunner of the Kardashian brand which includes modelling and now spans reality television “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami,” “Kim and Kourtney Take New York,” “Khloe and Lamar,” D-A-S-H stores (Calabasas, Miami, and the newest Soho), fragrance line Love by KK, jewellery line Belle Noel, clothing collection available at Sears the Kardashian Kollection, co-author of Kardashian Konfidential, exercise videos Fit In Your Jeans by Friday is also the face of many brands such as Carl’s Jr, Shape-Ups, Quick Trim, Sugar Factory Lollipops and Balenciaga.
Kim’s love life
She has previously had a lot of love for the brothas (who can blame her? I certainly do!). The most high profile boyfriend she had was Reggie Bush now former player for NFL’s New Orleans Saints. That coupling in my opinion was the hottest of all time. They dated for several years and now it is alleged that Reggie has regrets that he ruined his opportunity with ‘the love of his life’ and has tried to replace her with Kimmy copycats.
Kim dated Ray-J, Brandy’s younger brother (a relationship which skyrocketed her to fame with the help of a leaked sex tape) and Miles Austin an NFL player for the Dallas Cowboys.
What a lot of people do not know, is that Kim has been married before. She was married to Damon Thomas a record producer in 2000 at the age of 19 she was divorced 4 years later. The wedding occured in Las Vegas without the knowledge or blessing of the Kardashian family.
Now the brunette bombshell has a new fiance, Kris Humphries (yay for matching K’s AND being your mother’s name, coincidence or not?) the 2.06 metre tall (6ft 9in) NBA New Jersey Nets player. The pair first met when Kim was at a Nets game, liked the look of the handsome Mr Humphries and her people talked to his people to arrange a meetup.
They had been dating for six months before Kris proposed to Kim on May 18th 2011, their engagement lasting three months.
Shotgun wedding? It ain’t a thing for the Kardashians
Of course getting married quick fast to NBA players is not a unique trait to the Kardashian clan. Her sister Khloé met Lamar Odom NBA player for the LA Lakers on August 27 2009, was engaged within a month and was married a month to the day of their meeting, September 27 2009. According to Khloé in Kardashian Konfidential:
” Lamar and I knew we wanted to marry each other within three or four days after we met. I feel like Lamar was a gift from my Dad. “
Khloé Kardashian Odom (my favourite Kardashian after Kim) and Lamar Odom are still happily married nearly two years later (I believe these two will go the distance).
The ring, the proposal
According to an exclusive interview with People magazine Kris Humphries waited in Kim Kardashian’s bedroom until she came home where he was found on bended knee with four words written in red rose petals: WILL YOU MARRY ME?
“I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now.” Kim K
A romantic gesture made with a whopping $2 million 20.5 carat diamond rock set in platinum, designed by Lorraine Schwartz. The ring is alleged to model a CZ ring that Kim bought herself many years ago in Macys. Only the best for Kim!
This summer wedding will rival the English Royal Wedding. After all, the Kardashian family are celebrity royalty. Where would one hold such a lavish affair? Sotto Il Monte, a 10.9-acre private mansion in Montecito, California. It is owned by Google’s Eric Schmidt and is located 150km northwest of Los Angeles. You already know the security will be watertight to keep out the paparazzi and gatecrashers, nothing will stand in the way of the self proclaimed control freak having the perfect day. According to CelebrityWeddingBuzz.com:
“The estate is a Tuscan-style building complete with mountain views, indoor and outdoor pools, a greenhouse and tennis courts. And it looks like it’ll be the luxe, over-the-top setting we’ve all been predicting for the bride and groom, with a distinct California twist.”
Vera Wang is confirmed as the wedding and bridesmaids designers with the Kardashian bridesmaids, Kourtney and Khloé tweeting about ducking in and out of Vera Wang’s bridal studio in New York. According to friend of the Kardashians, Ryan Seacrest radio host, the bridesmaids will be wearing green, which will look complement the beautiful olive complexion of the Kardashian sisters, as did the purple the sisters wore for Khloé’s wedding. My bet is there will be several costume changes from Miss Kim K throughout the wedding. Madame Tussauds Wax Museum dressed Kim Kardashian’s figure up in the dress they felt Kim would be wearing, however Kim denied it via Twitter.
Celebrity guest list, who’s going?
The guest list is said to be around 500 people (a real intimate affair). US Weekly claims that: “Serena and Venus Williams, Nicole Richie, Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Osbourne, La La Vazquez, and Maria Menounos will be attending the Kim and Kris wedding. “
I highly doubt that ex-flame Reggie Bush was invited to the affair. Guests were strictly instructed to wear black or white attire (it’s a black tie event), and were forbidden to bring mobile phones or cameras.
Exclusive Press Rights to the Kardashian-Humphries Wedding
Kim secured a deal with People Magazine and E! for the exclusive broadcast and photo rights of her wedding for for the alleged price of US $2million. She is said to have a wedding special airing in September/October on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Now do you understand why guests can’t take photos? People and E! will be protecting their purchase like a hawk, with plenty of black fabric draping to block out the prying eyes of papz and security everywhere ready to confiscate cameras and phones.
What has Kim been doing wedding eve?
According to Kim’s Twitter and The Australian, getting massages, working out, a mani/pedi, hanging with her family, and sleeping in on her big day. My prediction is that the Kardashian-Humphries wedding will be a highly Kardashian orchestrated, unforgettable, decadent affair with no expense spared. Kim will always be the shining attractive light of the couple who will always be swamped with media attention and Kris Humphries want to get used to that fact quick smart (Reggie had quite an issue with this). The life of a Kardashian is filled with a big love for family, working hard (especially Kim) and building their Kardashian brand and empire, Humphries seems so shy (perhaps it’s just that he is not as newsworthy) it will be interesting to see if he can handle the celebrity fame and work demands of one of the most beautiful women in the world, Kim Kardashian. I wish them all the best in their marriage.
