Kim Kardashian

RAKING in the Cash

On Her Wedding Day

8/20/2011 5:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian doesn't do anything for free (get your mind out of the gutter) so it only figures her wedding day would be a HUGE pay day for Kim K.

People magazine won the bidding war for exclusive wedding day photos, says The Hollywood Reporter, to the tune of $1.5 MILLION.

The trade says Kim and hubby-to-be Kris Humphries also raked in $300,000 for the engagement announcement back in May and $100,000 from OK! mag for bridal shower pics.

We thought weddings were supposed to cost money?

It is her wedding day, last thing she should be thinking about is how to profit from it.
Kim has her priorities all wrong.Money is nice but one day she is gonna loose the looks,body that makes her the money and she is going to be lost.She is so materialistic it takes away from her beauty.You do not need money to be happy.

IMPORTANT SAFETY ALERT: Experts have been called in to install gas handling and exhaust systems under Kardashian’s wedding dress. Due to the enormous size of her ass, there is a constant leak of copious amounts of methane gas, and the concern is friction from her giant butt cheeks rubbing together while walking could ignite it and cause an explosion big enough to bring down the tent.
Officials have also recruited a number of men to standby and piss on her in the event she bursts into flames. All have said they are willing to do so even without a fire.

At least she's getting reimbursed for the ring she bought herself. Look, if you hate her/them so much, stop buying the magazines they're on, the shows and all the junk they stamp their name to. It's not that difficult. I know ppl who follow her on twitter **** who loathe her, stop giving her the attention she craves THEN she can't demand all these fee's for mags/clubs/commercials, etc... Are ppl really that stupid NOT to understand that concept?
This guy is going to be an asset to the family b/c its obvious he's very arrogant and is running the show, so to speak. This will not please pimp mom one bit....That's a good thing! Plus I'm sure Lurch will be spending all her money - good for him!

UGH! Just heard a tv newscaster refer to the Kardashian wedding as the U.S. version of royalty. WTH! Are people crazy?
Have sex on tape, and you become royalty? Hell NO!
They're nothing but the L.A. version of white trash.Is there nothing they won't sell?
GO AWAY!

They will marry today. During the next TV series she will spend MOST of his money. At the end of the season they will be divorced, then going to court for the rest of his money. Poor fella. He needs to wake up.

Gee!
My mother & father were married at City Hall + the wedding probably cost a total of $5.00 for the marriage license + blood test.
They stayed happily married for 41 years until my father died.

I don't know why some refer to her as smart. She is not the brains behind any of this. It is first and foremost the soul-less creep Ryan Seacrest, and secondly her anal-dwelling mother. Kim's just a box of rocks that does what she's told.

Kim Kardashian is not in love with Kris Humphries. She is still in love with her ex Rggie Bush. This reality TV wedding is a lucrative business deal that is going to benefit the Kardashian brand.
