In 2011 Kim Kardashian wrote on her blog that her message to her fans regarding her separation from Kris Humphries, whose marriage to the reality star lasted a measly 72 days, was the “hardest thing” she’s ever had to write. In the same way, this is the hardest thing I have ever had to write.
*insert gripping comment dripping in sarcasm here*
As much as I would like to deny it, I’m guilty of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Much like a moth is drawn to a burning flame. Much like eyes of passersby are stuck on a car wreck, I find myself staying abreast on the happenings of the Kardashians. Kim’s ever infamous sex tape with Ray J launched the Kardashian family to stardom. Kris and Bruce Jenner have split after 22 years of marriage. And Khole is going through a messy divorce with Lamar Odom.
Keeping Up With Kimye
Most recently, I have found myself determining the realness of Kim Kardashian’s and Kanye West’s upcoming nuptials. The pair were rumored to exchange vows this weekend in Italy. Is it a ploy for publicity? Or is it finally true love? Furthermore, if it is real, I question the longevity of their future marriage–folks, it is Hollywood, after all!
Still, I believe everyone should have their special moment and, in the very least, since this is Kanye’s first marriage, I feel the need to indulge – or is it divulge?
It is reported by various reputable news outlets that:
- Family and friends of the couple are gathering in Paris, then will travel to Italy for the wedding held at Fort Belvedere in Florence.
- The lavish ceremony will take place this Saturday, May 24.
- Lana Del Rey will be performing at the wedding.
- Kim’s BFF, Rachel Roy will be in attendance, along with Jay Z and Beyonce – don’t see anything wrong with this? Check this out.
- Kim and Kanye have already gotten legally married in California
Despite my inherent eagerness to always spew out “I Told You So’s,” I have a sliver of hope for the couple. If for nothing else, for the sake of their eleven-month-old daughter, North West. I’d like to think that the institution of marriage still has meaning, even in the fleeting world of celebrities. And, with two marriages under her belt, the third might be a charm for Kim.
So, here’s to wishful thinking and great prenuptial agreements: Toutes mes félicitations pour cette union!
