About Kim's wedding, Krisgushed, "It was so beautiful and magical – and that feeling went through every single person. It was just a love fest. It was the most wonderful time I think I've ever had and it's hard to explain that to somebody in words." Kris also revealed thatKim has changed her name to Kim Kardashian West. At least for the next 72ish days.
The sole Kardashian male (I'm not countingBruce Jenner- sorry!) has been battling his weight and all but disappeared from public life this year. Then he bailed on Kim Kardashian's massive wedding fiasco, very publicly leaving Paris the day before the nuptials took place amid reports of Kim fat shaming him. Butt, perhaps, Rob had a crystal ball that told him of the chaos.
And this is why I put little to no stock in what celebrities have to say about politics. Sure, they love to talk (and talkandtalkandtalkandtalk) about whatever candidate best fits their personal agenda or is en vogue with the A-listers of Hollywood, but do most of them even have a clue? At best, the extent of Kim Kardashian's political knowledge comes from School House Rock, at worst…well, this is pretty bad.
The reality star was shunned by the Obama campaign, and the President himself once referred to her now husbandKanye West as a "jackass." Classic Barack. Now, Kim is diving head first into local politics, backing California's 33rd District Congressional Candidate Marianne Williamson. So what has Kim contributed to the campaign? Money? Of course not! But she did write a boastful blog about a recent press event with Marianne.
Last weekend Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tied the knot in Florence, Italy. While the official wedding photos boasted a happy couple and the photo booth (seriously – isn't that a little passé?) boasted a bevy of D-list celebrity guests having fun, apparently the behind-the-scenes drama was straight out of a horror story! Despite costing an estimated $12 million dollars, guests called the event a giant "clusterf–k" and reportedly had a horrible time being part of the Kimye show.
Page Six reveals that there were tantrums (no, not from North or Mason!) from Kanye, huge wasted expenses and rudely treated guests and performers. Settle in – it's juicy!
– Miss Golden Showers needed her guests to pee in style. Kim and Kanye had a huge golden portable toilet erected (see what I did there) that was situated next to the dinner tables (klass!) and beside the dance floor. The monstrosity was so enormous – 49 feet tall – it required a crane to lift it into the walled fortress of Forti di Belvedere. "'Their toilet was the star of the show,' says a source. "The Italians named it the Torre di Bagni Oro (translation: the Gold Toilet Tower)."
Kanye WestandKim Kardashianwere married on Saturday at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. Kim wore a white lace Givenchy Haute Couture gown, complete with a long silk white veil, and Kanye wore a Givenchy tuxedo.
After the wedding ceremony, Kanye treated his guests to a 20-minute speech, during which he called Kim his "ideal art" and the "ideal celebrity."
Kanye referred to the Kardashians as an "industry" and "the most remarkable people of our time" who "make the world a better place." He continued, "I am defined by being a celebrity. The world is our altar. They feel like it's okay to put you on the tabloid covers to sell your image, to use you in a SNL spoof. We don't negotiate. We're not like that. We're not stupid."
Kimye Wedding Week is finally over – Kim Kardashian married Kanye Westin Italy today! We're not sure how "legal" the marriage is since they didn't establish residency first, but they topped off their week of Paris wedding festivities with a ceremony in Italy, as previously planned.
Kim and Kanye started dating sometime in 2012 and got engaged on Kim's birthday last October with a huge proposal extravaganza at AT&T Park. This is Kanye's first time at the altar but Kim's third. She was previously married to Damon Thomas from 2000-2003 and Kris Humphries for 72 days in 2011.
