Kardashian Fam

We Didn't Make a Cent

Off the Wedding

The Kardashian family is screaming it from the mountain tops -- trying to convince the world they DID NOT PROFIT from Kim's ill-fated wedding ... but there seems to be a problem with their logic.

Kris Jenner appeared on "Today" this morning ... and said, "It saddens me to think that one of the rumors is that we’ve sold the television rights for millions of dollars, not true. We profited or she profited – absolutely false."

Jenner's statement follows a stern blog post from Kim -- in which she also stated, "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."

This morning, Kim appeared on the "Kyle and Jackie O" show in Australia, and once again insisted she didn't marry for cash ... saying, "I would never marry for a TV show, for money, for anything like that, and I think that's really ridiculous that I have to even, you know, kind of defend that but, you know."

Still, Kris admits K&K, "made some money for the pictures that were sold and things like that" ... but says the fam didn't profit, because all of that money went back towards paying for the wedding.

But here's the problem -- most people can't afford a $10 million wedding, and if Kim chose to pump her MASSIVE paychecks back into her wedding, that's her call ... and it STILL COUNTS AS PROFIT. Kim could have had a $6 mil wedding ... and banked $4.

So, we gotta ask ...

It seems most everyone shares the same opinion about the Kardashians, so I have to ask Why The F Does Anyone Watch Their Show or Buy Their Products?

I heard on tv that her show held secret auditions for a boyfriend / husband. He was told there was big $ to be made.
This was all about the show and money from day one. They didn't even seem to like one another.

I can't believe she is keeping the gifts! Who does that? You can be the gifts add up to more than the cheque she's going to write for charity. This has to be a first for her, doing something for charity! Must be just about killing her to do that. No doubt it would kill her if she had to give up all the gifts! Selfish witch!

Kim was bragging about her $10mil wedding, then they sold the rights and made $18 mil off of it, giving a nice profit.

And let them keep on getting mad. I find it highly amusing that they're fuming that America is not standing by them and is calling them out on their BS

THEY ARE LIARS.

1) Past episodes of the show Kim was talking and talking about WHY she couldn't find a decent guy to marry. Remember?
After a few more episodes… BINGO! The decent handsome kid. How lucky she was.uh?
Then, after 3 months… MARRIAGE!
After 72 days… DIVORCE. Of course, everything was captured on camera for the show.

2) The poor guy claims "He would do everything to work for this marriage". She didn't give him any opportunity.

3) Kris didn't know that she filed for divorce. But who was first person to tweet about the coming news? Ray Seacrest. Excuse me??

We are already idiots to watch the show and make the Kardashians super rich. But enough is enough. We have a little inteligence left to know that this whole story was totally set up.

KIM KARDASHIAN and KRIS JENNER (pimps her daughters for
HARD cash and is PROUD of it):
***************** Just so you know...what YOU interpret as ADORATION, POPULARITY, SUCCESS and ESTEEM is now no different that the historical SCARLETT LETTER on your nasty daughter known as KIM KARDASHIAN.....Kim is followed as a SOCIETAL FREAK, DEVIANT, LOATHED, and DISGRACED.
---------------------------------------------------------
Even Bruce Jenner couldn't give an INSPIRING SPEECH to keep the KARDASHIAN TITANIC afloat.

That family really uses creative license when they talk about "profit." There is no way they would have spent $10 million on a wedding if they weren't getting every single penney back -- and more!

Every little freebie they received is considered "profit." The magazine covers - profit. Did they secretly get any sponsors for this sham of a wedding (a la Star Jones)? If so, PROFIT. In addition, we have no idea what special deal they made with E Network for the wedding. I'm sure it was "PROFITABLE."

Kim probably thought she was marrying a step stool like her stepdad. I'm sure Kris didn't want to be compared Bruce Jenner -- which is the direction in which he was heading. I don't blame him for getting his own publicist to strengthen his own image. Who wants to be one of the Kardashian's invisible men?

I feel for Kris because he was obviously in love and got swept up in the Kardashian self-promotion machine. I know he is a religious man who takes his vows seriously, but I think it would be best to just walk away. It takes two people to make a marriage work and Kim obviously isn't willing to put in the work.

There are a lot of really nice women out there who will treat him with the respect he deserves.
