Let me preface this by telling you that I feel a headache a-brewin', so it's appropriate that I'm about to unleash my smug and disapproving verbal eye-roll of a post about that one chick's wedding that happened yesterday.
Honestly. I used to like Kim Kardashian. I even watched the family's little reality show on E! on occasion when it first aired. Then it all got to be too much and too gross and too loud. I realize I'm being redundant and schoolmarm-ish by reminding everyone that Kim is famous mostly for getting peed on in a sex-tape with a third-rate R&B artist and her dad (the late Robert Kardashian) represented O.J. Simpson during his murder trial. Oh, and that ass of hers. Other than that? It's about who she knows, who she's shagged, who her step-dad is, who her famewhore-momager is, blah blah blah.
Kim married NBA player Kris Humphries yesterday in Montecito, California, a peaceful yet very posh coastal town just outside of Santa Barbara.
Here's the main reason I'm in a huff. It's being widely reported that a bride who was to be married this weekend at The Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel, where the Kardashians stayed prior to the wedding (which took place at an estate elsewhere in Montecito) pretty much had her Big Day ruined by the chaos created by the K's, their security and the media.
"While the family has reportedly been staying at the Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara in preparation for the day, it is rumored that the security is becoming a problem for another bride, states RadarOnline.com. “My good friend is paying a fortune to have her wedding here tomorrow and she was not even allowed in the bar where her whole wedding party was having a party!” a woman commented about a moment where security blocked everything for Kris Humphries who was going into the bar area.
Another guest at the hotel has also reportedly complained about his wife not being allowed back in the bar after she got up to use the restroom."
Do you have any idea the expense and advance booking involved for a wedding at The Biltmore? It's a gazillion dollars and at least a one year in advance planning--THAT'S how much. (It's gauche to actually ask the pricing of booking a wedding there. Let's just leave it at that.) I really hope the Four Seasons Hotel made it up to that other bride who got the raw end of the Kardashian chaos. Someone owes her a great big apology.
Okay...I promised you pictures. Here.

Good Lord. That bow on Mother-of-the-Bride, Kris's dress. Umm. The younger sisters look sweet.
I hope everyone realizes these people didn't pay one single DIME for this grand affair. In fact Kim, et al are making MILLIONS of dollars via endorsements--everything from the wedding invitations, the bachelor and bachelorette parties in Las Vegas, to the wedding cake, to the deep discount on Kim's 20 ct. engagement ring. I'm just sayin'.
The guest-list was a bit odd...UN-funny-man George Lopez, Mel B., Mario Lopez, Lindsay Lohan (?) and her mother, Dina Lohan, and of course
Merv Griffin and Eva Gabor Ryan Seacrest and "girlfriend", Julianne Hough. (Come on...that was funny.)
The reception was shut down by the authorities early because the DECENT folk in Montecito complained about the noise and craziness late in the evening--and I don't blame the locals one bit. SNIFF.
Can I stop writing about this mess now? Please?
So the Kardashians are now infiltrating real, live women's magazines now? Honestly AND forPITYsake. You guys, they work super, super hard, mmkay?
On people's fascination with them: "We are a real family," Khloe says. "We don't sugarcoat anything. We're not the Brady Bunch, but we always put each other first. We love each other on camera, we cry on camera. I think people relate to the realness of it."
On living a public life: "There's nothing I'm really ashamed of, and I work hard on the show and all my other projects," Kim says. "I don't drink or do drugs, so I'm comfortable showing the world what my life is all about."
On the biggest misconceptions about them: "It's annoying when I hear, 'What do your girls do?'" says mom Kris. "Well, first of all, all of my daughters have jobs. They are fashion stylists and designers; they own a chain of stores. They had the stores before they had the show. And my kids worked from the time they were 13 years old. So to me, that's a huge misconception—that the girls don't work. They work 25 hours a day. And that they don't have any talent? They might not be singers or dancers, but they certainly know how to produce a television show. Whether you want to call it talent or not, they have multiple shows on the air. [I want to say,] How many shows do you have?"
On family values: "Our joy in life is that we always have each other," Kris says. "So I've tried to teach my kids three things: love God, love your family, and love yourself."
Confession time. I've been known to watch marathons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. But I keep it old skool...I haven't watched any of the spin-offs. I have some scruples. Sheesh.
Clearly these chicks know that any publicity is good publicity, huh? I mean, where would the K's even be had Kim not become famous by the release of her sex tape?
I guess once you have the folks at SNL spoof you, you're FAMOUS, kids! (Imagine my patented Full-Body Eyeroll...)
The Kardashian Klan is at it again. When they're not collectively whoring themselves out, they get together for Kreepy Kristmas pictures. Okay, I'll stop now. Comparing this to their old holiday photos, they now seem to be taking style cues from the Addams Family. Where is the holiday cheer? The love, the warmth? Are they in the mob? Are they hiding bodies in the basement?
These pictures used to include Bruce's family, who are absent for this one. Lamar is included, but isn't it weird how Kourtney, baby Mason and Scott Disick are off the side in the 2010 kard? (Oh, sorry...)
And look at Scott and little Mason being all Patrick Bateman and very well dressed My Buddy doll. (Remember THIS??)
The fact that I even know all of their names bothers me.
