Yesterday morning, the Twittesphere was filled with the news that socialite and TV personality Kim Kardashian was engaged to her beau of six months, New Jersey Nets Forward Kris Humphries. Most of the tweets I read mentioned her 20 karat engagement ring and the fact that she and “finally snagged herself a baller” after several attempts, most notably with New Orleans Saints RB Reggie Bush. And alongside the links of articles which mentioned repetitive details about the engagement and the size of her rock, some tweeps were actually upset that Kim was tying the knot.
These folk would be called haters.
I could care less if Kim got married or not. I do not stan for her at all (I actually prefer the more abrasive and in-your-face sister Khloe Odom over Kimmy), but a wedding is a wonderful thing. And since there is no vested interest in it for me if she gets married or not, I am happy that she has finally found a man that wants to marry her, television cameras running and all. Why hate on a chick that, albeit kinda non-entertaining, is crapping on most people in the game?
Kimmy has managed to capitalize on her 15 seconds of fame with her sex tape with Ray J (yeah Ray who?) and propelled a career that is brought her millionairess plus status. Along with that, she has collected a bevy of endorsement deals, television shows, clothing lines, perfumes, and more. I can’t knock her or her family’s hustle.
If she has found “true love”, then she has my support. Hating on her for whatever reason won’t stop her shine or her cashflow—if anything, the hateration grows it.
So even though I will never be invited to what is sure to be Kim and Kris’ massive “royal-esque wedding”, she’s got my full support. This is one wedding that is going to be the seen and heard all around the world. I am not saying you have to like this chick, but you should respect her gangster when it comes to her business acumen.
My point is this—why hate? Unlike some women who use men for their fortune, Kim is worth way more than her soon-to-be husband.
Massive ring, beauty, ass, and a huge fortune. Kim Kardashian has it all—or does she? Feel free to use the comment section below and give us your take.

I loved reading this article…
It may seem like she has it all…but I am sure problems lurk around dark corners…like the Paparazzi or worse…
If I were here…there ain’t no way – I would be getting married – hell, no…I hope her ROCK is worth the size of his C*** – no I didn’t say it….xoxo
I couldn’t agree more!
I don’t think it”s hate.I believe women are appalled that so many people like yourself write about someone so inconsequential. To add insult to injury, its an embarrassment to the entire nation that she has achieved such fame by way of a sex tape. How would you feel if your daughter aspired to be Kim Kardashian? Hmm.. Times are changing for the worst and many of us would like to hold on to values and morals. Less of the sensationalism.
1) Just because you don’t say these words “I’m happy for her” doesn’t mean you are a hater…Why? Because I could care less either way if she does or doesn’t get married…To me, all she is is someone I see on tv & read about in blogs in between doing work…That is all she is…There are some celebs, who have reality shows, that i actually end up liking & could see myself saying, “I’m happy for her”….Because those celebs, as Wendy Williams has put it, become friends in my head…Those are people I could totally see hanging out with & think that if we ever met, we would probably hit it off…Those are celebs who you see let their guard down & they become more….Human if you will….But Kim, doesn’t show personality…To me, all she is is someone on tv & blogs…See number 3….
2) Kim’s star power is slowly but surely fading…I have no hate for Kim…The girl can dress her ass off…However, let’s look at the facts…Who is checking for these Kardashian reality shows like they once were? Who is checking for Kim like they were when she first hit the sceen (Paris Hilton anyone? Where she go?)? And from what I have read, Kim’s magazine covers aren’t selling like they used to…People magazine, from what I know, said that her last cover with them, probably the one up top, didn’t sell like her previous covers have…She has now been offered 1 milli for the wedding coverage/exclusives & even some folks over at People don’t think she is worth that seeing how this last cover sold disappointing numbers…They originally offered her double what they are giving her now but backed down after getting the figures in for the last magazine cover…
3) I’ll give it to Kim….She went from having a sex tape, being known as having ho like behavior, to being on magazine covers, making millions of dollars & bringing her family along to get that money…I’m not mad because I would have flipped it like that too if that were me…But let’s keep it real…A black woman, with a sex tape, would have a snow balls chance in hell of obtaining this type of fame…And THAT, is where i have a issue…The double standard…Chick is famous…For what exactly? When we first heard of Kim, I thought the chick was bad…Although I am a female, I will call another woman ‘bad’ in a minute…But she is becoming more & more fake…More & more surgeries…Messing up herself when she doesn’t even have to…
3) Khloe is my favorite…Kim is too caught up in making sure she looks fly 100% of the time while she is on camera…Khloe doesn’t mind being vulnerable…More real…Kim, on the other hand, is too caught up in image…
