Kim Kardashian has taken herself off the meat market. After a string of boyfriends, mostly professional athletes, the shapely huckster has finally taken the plunge with New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries. Could a baby be next?
Humphries, 26, reportedly staged an elaborate engagement proposal on May 18 at Kim’s Beverly Hills home.
He spelled out “Will You Marry Me,” in rose petals on her bed and was waiting on one knee when she walked into the room, according to people.
“I didn’t expect this at all,” Kardashian, 30, said. “I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now.”
Oh oh… will she go through with it and get married?
It’s hard to see how marriage will fit into her extensive marketing and reality television business.
Playing the field with different boyfriends has always given her a ready peg for a tabloid story to keep her brand fresh in everyone’s mind.
Humphries gave Kardashian a gargantuan custom-designed, 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring, according to the magazine.
Kim stars in reality shows with sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian and also hawks a number of beauty, fitness and diet products.
Getting engaged, married and having a baby will open up whole new marketing channels for her. Bet she can’t wait to cash in.
