You know what could pay for a massive, opulent party? If she auctioned off her engagement ring from Kris Humphries! Wait, what? She gave it back and KRIS auctioned it off? And someone paid WHAT for it?
It's a lot to take in, y'all, but yes, someone paid an obscene amount to Kim's sloppy seconds finger candy. She can't be bothered by it though because she's got a birthday bonanza to attend!

According to UsWeekly, the NBA player sold Kim's engagement ring yesterday at a Christie's auction in NYC for $620,000! Chump change! An unknown online buyer (is that you, Kris Jenner?) won the bauble which was created by Lorraine Schwartz and features a 16.21-carat center diamond flanked by two 1.8-carat diamonds. Apparently, a "portion of the proceeds" will go to a "as yet unnamed" charity. Perhaps Kris was more suited for Kim than I initially thought…
Bidding for the ring started at $200,000 and after Christie's commission, whoever was stupid lucky enough to score this piece of pop culture history will be paying $749,000 for the ring. That averages $10,402.78 for every day of their marriage. Well worth it, I say! Who are these people and why don't they want to pay down some of my student loans?
A source tells the magazine, "Kim has been waiting for the day he would auction it. Everyone always asked what Kim did with the ring — she silently gave it back over a year ago! And Kris waited until the divorce was final to sell it."
Of initial reports that the ring Kim paid $2 million for the ring (yes, she bought it for herself), the insider scoffs, "The ring is definitely not worth $2 million, not even half of that."
Kim, of course, can't be bothered with this silliness. She's going to Vegas, baby! After previously ringing in her 30th at TAO Nightclub, she's heading back for seconds with a party on October 25, just four short days after her actual birthday.
The reality star recently tweeted the above picture (really?), writing, "Vegas…you ready? Tao. 10/25. Kim Bday."
Mark your calendars, people.
