There’s No Million Dollar Deal for Kardashian Wedding at People Mag


Oy vey. Lots of reports this week about People magazine paying a million bucks for the photos of celebrity hound Kim Kardashian‘s wedding to hoopster Kris Humphries. It’s not true. Sources tell me definitively that People has not made a deal with Kardashian, and that they certainly will not pay $1 million for those pictures. The price, if it ever happens, is more in tune with like $100,000. But again, there is no deal. I’m not even sure why anyone cares about this woman, her family, or this wedding. The Kardashians are brutal self promoters whose only talent is in flogging themselves. No one ever asks them during their ceaseless publicity about their late father, Robert Kardashian, who may have helped O.J. Simpson cover up a double murder. Before Robert Kardashian died, he actually did hint that Simpson was guilty–in a book with Larry Schiller. Also no one’s asking how weird it is that Kim is marrying a man whose first name is the same as that of her mother, Kris Karsdashian Jenner.

PS If this couple does get some money for what will undoubtedly be their tacky wedding, I hope they give it to charity.
