So, they said it wouldn't last. No, really I don't think there is a person in the world who thought the marriage between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries would last more than 10 minutes. I think 72 days was pretty impressive considering it was more than likely a money making scheme for publicity.
Kim's fairy tale wedding? Exactly that, a fairy tale. Did anyone really believe these two were in love? In fairy tales, the characters are truly in love, they live and would die for each other. The only thing Kim Kardashian lives for is money and publicity. And she got plenty of both through this whole sham.
Who the hell is she anyway? What has she ever done that is of any redeeming qualities? She is a true narcissist, accepting millions of dollars to televise a wedding that was orchestrated purely for ratings and received everything free. Why, when the country is in the state of financial need that it is in would one individual accept a reported $15MM to $17MM just to say "I do" on national television? Are people that hungry to see her in all her lavish, over the top surroundings making a mockery of marriage? Are we that desperate for entertainment?
I figured out that between the $10MM cost of her wedding (she didn't pay a dime) and the reported $17MM she received to do it, it was a $651 per minute marriage. Or $10.85 per second. Minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. In a 40 hour work week that comes to $290; per year it's $15,080. So basically, the amount that was spent on Kimbo getting married would pay a minimum wage annual salary to 1,800 people.
Right now, Kris Humphries isn't working as a result of the NBA lockout. More spoiled rich folk wanting to be richer. When you are earning millions why can't you be at least a little more reasonable about taking a bit of a pay cut? Yet stubborn as the players are being, there is now no NBA season at least until December. The way it's going, everybody loses.
The Kardashian's are a money making machine with no explanation. Sure, they work hard promoting themselves, selling their perfumes, their Sears clothing collection which has been quoted as "Peggy Bundy Like" and modeling gigs. For Kim, the balance of her time is spent worrying about her psoriasis, her bad reactions to Botox and whether or not she should get x-rays to prove her fat ass is really well, fat.
The amusing thing is she is trying to pass off her nuptuals as being real. Is there anyone out there that didn't predict the split? Is anyone worried about the heartbreak Kim is going through during this "very difficult time"? Please! Don't insult the millions of people who knew exactly what she was up to in this sham she called a fairy tale. This was strictly business and she made some serious bank for it.
Kim's thrust (no pun intended) into stardom was from her appearance in a sex tape that she profited from immensely. This "fairy tale" marriage was another example of her whoring herself for money. This may incite anger in those of her fans that truly believe she "loved" Kris Humphries but I must say to all of those people, the only person Kim Kardashian loves is the one she sees in the mirror every morning. And it's hard to believe that reflection doesn't cause her any pause.
