'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."

Ah, yes . . . instead of giving the gifts back to the people who were kind enough to give them in the first place, she is going to make a donation to charity that she is then going to write off on her taxes. That sounds fair.

Donating $200,000 to charity is not the same as returning the gifts. Donating $200,000 will get you a deduction on your taxes for your donation. Return the gifts and the $2 million ring.

**This is a TOTAL LIE** She is only donating about $2,000 of the money...THANKS KIM for your generosity. Ask her what she bought with the wedding gift balance....go on ASK her, see what she has the audacity to say! If I were a wedding guest who shelled out thousands of dollars for a gift, only to have her use the funds for extravagant purchases...I would be VERY upset. Try to talk your way out of that one you greedy greedy girl.

Excuse me? So she gives a $200,000 donation to a charity AND THEN GETS TO WRITE IT OFF ON HER TAXES!!!! Give back all the wedding gifts and return the ring. Do one little something honorable for once in your life.

Now after hearing about Kris J not wanting her daughter to have to give back the wedding ring (indian giver wld be the exspouse Momgr K said) We cn understand why Kim is not returning her gifts and supposedly (??) donating money (grt tax write off Kris) She can't hire someone to return gifts or more likely she wants to keep all gifts....does the groom get half after all it is CA.

Kim proper etiquette is you should return the gifts and let the person who gave you the gift decide if they want to donate it, especially if they gave a lavish gift. It is in good taste to return any unused gifts, gift certificates and cash given as wedding presents if the marriage ends after only a couple of months. I also read that
“According to US Weekly, a source says that, “Anything earned during the marriage, [Kim] keeps.” And another source told the magazine, “Kris does not receive any of Kim’s money” as part of their divorce settlement.
However, the report then says the NBA star would be entitled to “hefty profits from [the couple’s] E! wedding special,” which is bringing he and Kim a major windfall.
“Kim and Kris got 30 percent of the revenue from every commercial that aired,” a source told US Weekly. “The wedding special aired in about 50 countries — they made out like bandits!”

Give back the gifts anyway. These guests all deserve to get their gifts back.

KK is full of BS. If she has class, she should return the wedding gifts to her guests. It is the right thing to do. People would not gifted her those things if she was not married. She has admitted that she never wanted to marry KH in the first place. She just went for the ride. The whole K family are white trash with money. They have no class.

Untalented, uninspiring, unapologetic woman. You are just a porn star who somehow managed to go mainstream. Stop this nonsense.
