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 hope that over all the media bull****e that they know they're being laughed at in the houses of the american people. They do not deserve this fame, and ARE NOT role models for young intellectuals to look up to. A sex tape?! A reality show?! Change the world! Cure cancer! Then maybe we'll respect you Kim, but purely based on you having money and being famous because of your father we don't. Let the media feed your delusions of grandeur...

What a total crock of shize..17 million for some celeb wannaby to have a publicized wedding ? Pahleeeeze.. and who in their right mind in this country really gave a sh!@ Here's my idea: with the conomy being in the toilet, and many families struggling to make ends meet, I think all the proceeds should be donated to organizations to help the rest of the American public in need. Why would a family making all the money they do, living the life they are really need that money more than organizations supporting the General American public. You all need to man up, stop lining the already full pockets U possess and pass on the love. Go on..Make a difference..I speak for all of us, we know U can...Go on ...Just do it...make a difference in someone's life. TRUST ME, IT WOULD CHANGE A LOT OF LIVES !

What a waste of time and money..To think, making all that money off a televised wedding that as far as I can tell..No one realy gives a !@#$...Got a great idea..seeing that you all have more money than you can use, why not donate all the proceeds from this dumb event to a worthwhile cause...The way things are nowadays, people could really care less for these rich people and what they stand for and if they are truly American, they would give all the money to cahritable causes..

These two are far from royalty, more like media whores. The Kardashians will do anything to make a buck. Don't they have enough money yet? Geez, what are they going to film and sell next? Is nothing private anymore?

Is nothing private anymore? BTW, hasn't she been married before? What's with the huge wedding. I suspect small and tasteful isn't her style.
