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.
