Kim Kardashian
's wedding guests ain't gonna get their expensive wedding gifts back ... but KK wants to make it up to everyone ... with one BIG ASS charity donation. 

Kim just blogged about her decision to divorce Kris Humphries ... insisting she "married for love" ... but says, "I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people."

She also wrote, "There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this."

"I’m so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation."

Sources close to Kim tell TMZ ... KK plans to give the organization a $200k check.

Kim concluded, "I’m sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart I believe now that I really am."

That is less then a $500. gift per guest. Really? Not buying it. Return all the gifts including gifts of money then donate to your charity quietly like you always do. The money you made with the filming, photos and interviews can cover your cost. If you are in the red too damn bad!

ok, just saw this. so she says she knew she didnt want to get married because she didnt want to dissapoint anyone. Give the gifts back and make your donation. Do something non HOLLYWOOD and work on your marriage, try out that fairytale, if you married for love then shouldnt you go to a marriage councelor???? its hard work and since your are a workaholic this is your nitch.

We the people of the United States Need to get this kinda of Bull Sh** out of Our lives. In todays Society with Millions of peole out of work, Losing their Homes, and going with out Medical Insurance and Food. and the Kardashians have EVERYTHING ? what's wrong with this picture. F-Them and go on with our lives, With out US they'll have NOTHING. Let them see what Its like to struggle, Kim Can always go back to porn. That's her claim to fame anyway. The MOM is a Liar and so Is Kim, Its all about the MONEY, for that Money Hungry Greedy Pig Family.
RETURN THE GIFTS TO THE PEOPLE, If they want to donate It they will. I bet their still in the boxes anyway. BOYCOTT, BOYCOTT, BOYCOTT the KARDASHIANS

She makes 18 Million on the wedding, walks away with a 2 million ring and god knows the value of all those gifts. NOW she wants to make a 200K tax deductible donation. This girl and her family are all whores in the worst way. I hope this fakery blows them right off the map. Anyone notice the timing of this? The publicity loving mother just released her book....

Dream Foundation, yeah right ONLY IN YOUR DREAMS YOU WILL SHE GIVE THEM GIFTS TO A CHARITY, DUMB CHILD. She is a loser that has been around the block. Everyone in LA have been up in her. She must have body odor because she cannot keep a man. Invest in douching heffer.

Donating to charity?? Wow, I bet those who gave her the gifts would like to have the tax write off. $200,000 tax write off on her taxes while those who gave her big dollar items are just out the money - AND she still has all the gifts - that she doesn't have to claim income on! The rationalization of the rich. "You take your hard earned $$ and give it to me for the privilege of seeing me all pretty and I'll donate a little bit of it and everyone is happy!" Then the whole family will go on talk show after talk show and make a little more!

Kim K quote: "probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people."

Kim K, do you know how self-centered and egotistical that comment tags you as being? You were only thinking about yourself, your television show and your career. You couldn't care less about the man who you married. Don't give us the BS that you'll still be friends. That's not going to work. GET REAL!!

You keep spewing non-sense Kim K (and family/friends) and it's only making your situation worse.

She needs to give the presents or the money back to those people. She probably returned some of those gifts for credit, a list of some of the registry is below from people.com:
Items range from a Baccarat Cosmos extra large vase ($7,500) to $46 martini glasses. Other must-haves from Gearys: Hermés presentation plates ($304 each), ice tongs ($195), a Tourbillon black vase ($6,500), a candy jar ($375), a Lalique Ingrid black vase ($4625), a Christofle Vertigo small tray for $1,050, Ascutney glasses ($55 each), a Baccarat ice bucket ($635), a picture frame ($470), Balcon du Guadalquivir plates by Hermés ($105 each), a nude black resting statue by Lalique ($325), a nude black meditating statue ($325), crystal bar bowls ($140 each), a Lalique Cactus Flacon ($450), Havana ashtrays ($840 each) and a Lalique New York-style black clock ($1,115).

Let me guess...are you going to take a tax deduction on that $200K donation? Sounds like a pretty good way to offset the millions you are making off this.

Send the gift BACK to the people who gave them! For crying out loud I think you have more than $200,000 worth of gifts and that doesn't help the people who paid for them! SEND THEM BACK TO THOSE WHO SENT THEM TO YOU!

Oh, that's great!! She's going to keep all the presents and she (and/or her mom)thinks all the bad publicity will go away by making a $200,000 donation to charity??? That's brilliantly disguised as a HUGE TAX DEDUCTION at the end of the year. So poor little Kim can keep her expensive gifts and get the tax write-off. Seriously, how dumb do these people think the American public to believe such crap??!!??

Tacky, Kim, like a lot of things in your life. Unused gifts should be returned to the giver, money should be returned to the givers, and used gifts should either result in reimbursement to the giver, or at least some contact asking them what they want you to do with it. Personally, I wouldn't mind taking my $8000 vase back, even if it was used. But etiquette doesn't seem to be your strong suit.
