Oh good gravy! Those Kardashians will never go gently into that good night, will they? I guess I have to take some of the blame for still writing about them, but what can I do? (Stop writing about them, I hear you) Perhaps today I’ll write about the authority on all things love-related…at least in Bravolebrity world.
Patti Stanger, everyone’s favorite Millionaire Matchmaker, recently spoke with HollywoodLife.com about the whole Kimye phenomenon. Of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s
fauxmance romance she exclaims, “This is a good, good fit for her and I hope that Kris [Jenner], her mother, gives the blessing because I think they’ll end up getting married. I really do. I think he has known the family long enough to know what the problems are. I love it. KK babies all the way! I think that they both made a mistake at one point in their life. They understand each other and they were friends first. Friends are the best foundation for a really good marriage.”

Patti also comments on the fact that Kim is, well, still technically married. According to Patti, that’s no big deal. “Separated is separated, the whole thing was not even a real marriage,” She says. “I think she fell for him and the attraction and chemistry was there but at the end of the day they just didn’t gel.” Two quick things, Patticakes…I think Kris Humphries would beg to differ that it was in fact a real marriage, and separated isn’t always separated–it depends on the state in which you were married. California is probably far different from my uber-conservative Southern state, but here Kris could have Kim’s bum for adultery since they aren’t yet legally divorced.
As for why the couple works, Patti explains, “They have the attraction, he’s got the money, he’s got the talent, she’s got the money. She traded up for a change, and this is beyond Reggie. It’s an equal fit, if not bigger.” Um, I can’t help but notice Patti didn’t say Kim had the talent…
Kris, on the other hand, apparently isn’t living by the whole “separated is separated” mantra. A source tells RadarOnline.com, “Kris won’t even consider dating anyone until his divorce to Kim is finalized. Kris is very much aware that Kim is dating Kanye West, and he could truly care less. He wishes her nothing but the best, and if she can be happy with Kanye, great. He just isn’t ready to date yet and doesn’t want to get in a serious relationship right now. Kris isn’t living like a monk and goes out with his buddies to clubs.”
Perhaps Kris isn’t ready to date because he’s too busy trying to make sure his divorce proceedings go to trial…and here’s hoping it’s time well spent for Mr. Humphries. The same insider reveals, “Kim is just livid that she has to be deposed. She has tried to get out of it, but there is no way she can. Kris is ready for his deposition to be taken and just wants the truth to get out about what really happened when they were dating and after the wedding.”
Of course, all of the hullabaloo surrounding the divorce hasn’t soured Kris’ outlook on love. Kris will “absolutely get married again, when the time is right. Kris wants to have a family, but he isn’t going to rush into anything. He is hopeful that the divorce will be finalized by the end of the year,” the source tells the site.
Good news may be in store for another basketball player close to the Kardashian klan. Lamar Odom may actually have a shot at playing in the summer Olympics. After a less than stellar basketball season, Lamar is hoping to be team USA this summer at the 2012 Olympics in London. Sources tell HollywoodLife.com he may have a chance given the recent injuries suffered by Chris Bosh, Derrick Rose, and Dwight Howard.
“If Lamar makes the team it just proves that the men’s basketball team have lost a ton of talent due to injury,” snarks the insider.
The roster won’t be finalized until July 7th. Here’s hoping that Lamar can make his Olympic dreams come true…and here’s hoping the Kardashians won’t try to cash in on that success. Oh, who am I kidding?
