'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."

Well actually, Kim should be thanked for giving the value of the wedding gifts to charity, because she did not need to give back anything. You should only give the wedding gifts back if the wedding does not take place. Kim and Kris were married, yes for about two months, but the marriage ceremony was completed. http://inweddinggifts.com

ok first off she says her daddy always taught her to follow her heart well should have done that before you got married and now you want to apologize to anyone you hurt well lets see there are people out of money b/c well your to greedy to spend your own money to buy your own things ... who the hell is she kidding a charity donation thats a damn tax write off for her... so its like doing nothing ... She should think before she speaks b/c I am pretty sure her dad is rolling over in his graves with disgust that one she is such a media whore and 2 the first time she married she did it without telling her family and when she wanted out of that is when she told her dad and her dad had to bail her out of that one.... Ridiculous... BOYCOTT the KARDASHIANS... they have more money than they know what to do with ... next will be a wedding porno that was never expected to be seen... ugh ....

Right. As if Kim the shallow skank is going to follow proper etiquette and return the gifts. Dream on. I believe most etiquette experts would also agree that it is not good etiquette to bang every black guy you run across, let alone put one such grimy encounter on videotape. :-)

Kim got the fame and the $$$$ $ from E (cable channel) along with other advertisement endorsements, etc. She blames his family not "liking her" & "him gaining publicity".
Whatever the reasons are---marriage is syrupy serious commitment before God. They will answer to God. It seems the Kardashians & Jenners families basically run & own E!. I admit I enjoy watching their shows. However, who knows the real truth. I hope Kim K nor Kris H used this to gain publicity to help advance their career. I feel he was truly in love --- that ring wasn't cheap. But also his actions I encountered while watching their shows on E!
She's beautiful & lucky that every man would envy to have her. Kris is a handsome fellow also.
I just wish the best for the both of them & hope everyone in their families can come to peace with their actions.
Good luck to the families involved.
Maybe Momma Kris can now understand why Kortney is avoiding marriage until the appropriate time is right. Even though her & Scott have one child together.
Prayers & Best Wishes for all involved. I'm not trying to point fingers in either direction. However, the Kardashian/Jenner clan thrives from reality TV. Humphres got his fame from true work -
basketball player.
I read Kim is donating 200,000 instead of returning wedding gifts. How about all the money she made doing the wedding????? Donate those millions, Kim. That would make you look less than a media wh**e. I hate using the W word, but that is what your becoming & being labeled as in the media.
Donate 1-3 million on charities that are never heard of. Small town charities in poor states as Mississippi, Louisiana, West Virginia.
That would make you look like a hero.
Kim, I do wish you the best. Sorry if I seemed harsh.
Kris H, I hope you have a great basketball season. And get the ring back.

IF THE A FRACTION OF THE VALUE OF THE WEDDING GIFTS IS GOING TO CHARITY WHO GETS TO TAKE THE DEDUCTION ON THE INCOME TAX RETURNS. GOT TO PROTECT THE FAMILY MONEY. THEY SHOULD JUST GO AWAY.

So, people buy the couple gifts...she keeps the gifts and rather than returning them she "donates" $200K to a charity.
Is this correct?
She's having her cake and eating it too.
She allowed other people to buy her stuff then gets a tax write off for donating the equivalent monetary value to a charity. Nice con.
