The alleged Kim and Kris wedding rumors are being to dwindle down and make sense. The wedding has been rumored to be an event for the mere publicity exposure the Kardashians are so well known for.
The Columbus dispatch writes:
“The wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries was nothing but a ‘hoax and a publicity stunt,’ several ‘well-placed’ sources told Radar Online. The E! network supposedly shopped around for a New York-area athlete to join her in a relationship and on a reality show. ‘It was pretty much an arranged marriage right from the start,’ a source said. ‘Kim was looking for a husband, and Kris was selected for her amongst others (including former New York Knicks basketball player Danilo Gallinari, who reportedly turned her down). She wasn’t really into him (Humphries), but she hoped she would be able to develop some feelings — but it never happened.’ Another source said: ‘It wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if Kim and Kris managed to ‘reunite’ and the divorce filing gets brushed aside as they go to counseling and couples therapy. Basically, Kim will do anything and everything for the maximum amount of attention and TV time.’ Friends of Humphries said he went into full Hollywood mode during the past week, talking about “branding” his name with nightclub appearances, a cologne and the like. The last straw for Kardashian, a friend told TMZ.com, came during the weekend when he hired a publicist.”
