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?

I forgot to add this to my prior post......the only reason the K's are where they are now and have the money to make a mockery out of getting married is because of US....the public. We made them rich.

If we stop watching their ridiculous shows and following their every move their pictures would cease to have any value and the paparazzi would lose interest in them along with everyone else. Now...this is REALLY my last comment about them. lol

kim .k just has to be number one and all attention must be on her, all she's trying to do is to one-up khloe and lamar, but every situation is different and she's going to find that out pretty soon with a DIVORCE..

Please people stop saying they are not important , they practically own a Major cable network called E !!..

1.5 million is already more than what Kris gets in a full year of playing b-ball. But I bet that those 'Hellboy' look-a-like babies are gonna be ugly.

So although she has no talent (can't even have sex well) she is getting paid for her wedding. One this is sad and ordinary people should stop supporting hollywood in any possible way since too much of our money is being wasted by dyslexic accountants. Second this proves that this marriage is a sham! Everyone already knows from her past relationships that Kim K thinks of marriage as something less important than the commitment of buying a cat.

Where are the churches picketing and having this wedding annuled even before she can. She is making a mockery of the sanctity of marriage. No wonder Chris said what he did about his mother he knows this is going to last even shorter than a 13 year old girls going steady and he can still get good sex on the road.

"We thought weddings were supposed to cost money?"... her wedding cost $29m. How is making $1.8mil whoring her pictures off constitute making money?

How can you watch a whore on TV every week and not expect her to whore out her wedding? What is REALLY SAD is what the poor Groom's family must be going through having to be attached to the Kardashian circus. According to some well placed source, they can't stand her. I WONDER WHY. They must have internet service and have seen....well, from reading some of these massages everyone knows.

Hey JUstin what are you talking about interracial couples. Uhm just wondering if you have any percent of Afro-American then you are black? To what extent? So Tiger Woods was black back when he was on top even though he's half Asian. Obama is black even though his mother was White!
Humphries now is Black even though his mother is white and his father looks like him with blue eyes! To have blue eyes you need to have a northern European person on both your mother and fathers side since blue eyes are a recessive gene.

So Humphries is black even though his mother is white and his dad has white people on both sides of his family. It's like the jioke in Harold and Kumar some people who tan might be darker than him.

the truth    

gecico cave man?? LMFAO!!!! he kind of does look like them lol.

who said they are royalty? but anyways i could careless. just another wedding thats all. the show is boring .we have kourtney who i use to like always saying I'M NEVER GONNA TALK TO THAT B AGAIN.i dont like the way they treat and talk about their mom.Khloe i can handle at times but shes a little weired.i see her laughing in the background sometimes when she thinks the camera isent on her.she needs to grow up.Kim has no personality at all. either does kourt.Scott may be the smartest , who knows? but I'm really bored with this gang. ohhh and leave bruce alone .i like him.hopefully his 2 daughters dont grow up like the others. i hope Bruce does a good job with those 2.
