From the department of “We’re not sure why this is actually news” comes word of Saturday’s big event. The huge showdown. The titanic clash. Of course I’m talking about the Kardashian-Humphries wedding.

From the Toronto Star:

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the price tag for the wedding — with 500-plus invited guests — will be $10 million U.S., but the cost might be covered by a number of side deals, including an exclusive contract with People magazine to publish wedding photos, said to be worth $1.5 million.

Hollywood Reporter also tagged the wedding at only half a million. That’s a pretty huge disparity. Multiple outlets are reporting that they are making a ton of money off an exclusive deal for the photos and multiple endorsements like Vera Wang for the dress. That’s right. The dress maker is paying the bride a ridiculous amount to wear the dress. Husbands everywhere are screaming and throwing things as they read the ridiculousness of this.

But hey, the couple seems happy enough and Humphries is a pretty promising NBA player.

This concludes your ProBasketballTalk coverage of the Humphries-Kardashian wedding. May the Lord have mercy on us all.

    I read one article that called Humphries a “star”. It made me laugh.
    She’s famous because Daddy helped get OJ off the hook. Oh, and that whoring around on video stuff.

      If O.J.’s legal team were a basketball team, Robert Kardashian would have been one of the inactive guys wearing street clothes- the 14th or 15th man. He was a businessman and personal friend with a lapsed law license who re-activated it to protect OJ. I guess he had a role on the team, but OJ had a gang of legendary attorneys doing the heavy lifting.

      Where are the daughters of Robert Shapiro, F Lee Bailey, Johnnie Cochran et al?

      As the saying goes, Kim is famous for “a big ass and a sex tape.” Prior to that she was somewhat semi-famous ( maybe like a Kimberly Stewart level, if that) for hanging with Paris Hilton and dating low level celebs. Her sisters and brother ( also children of the OJ friend/lawyer) were pretty much completely unknown, until after their sister had a sex tape and they piggybacked on her porn for reality careers.

    Humphries is a juicer.

    She has a fantastic ass.
    That being said, she is no better than a butt buddy or to use her for her money.

    And we have officially been affected by the lockout. Nothing to report….

  6. bj1980 - Aug 21, 2011 at 11:20 PM

    Well, many happy returns, and thanks for the good few months with the Mavs . . .

    . . . dear God am I bored. Is the lockout over yet?
