Kim Kardashian”s Wedding Will Make Her Millions
The Kardashian klan moves awfully fast. Blink and you might miss another quickie engagement and wedding. On the heels of Kim”s engagement news this morning, sources close to the family tell me TV execs are already talking how to spin Kim Kardashian”s impending wedding to Kris Humphries into yet another gold rush.
One of the options is to start a new spin-off show, starting now, that would follow Kim getting ready for the big day, culminating in a televised ceremony.
“Kris Humphries might not have known what he was getting into. This wedding is going to happen very much in the public eye,” an insider told me. “And they will make millions off of it.”
Of course they will. The Kardashians have built their $65 million empire on complete candor about all aspects of their lives. That isn”t going to change now. Kim”s wedding could turn into the highest rated program E! has ever seen, especially if they build up to it with its own show.
“I”ve always dreamed of a big wedding. I”ll probably do something really over-the-top. Super feminine but still really modern, chic and cool, but it has to have a lot of heart, it has to be all about the family,” Kardashian told us.
And with a big wedding can come big bucks. No doubt Kris Jenner will milk the wedding for all the promotional opportunities it is worth
Over at Forbes, Mark Pasetsky is already speculating about how much Kim”s wedding photos will sell for. His guess is at least $2 million for domestic rights to the photos. There is at least an additional $1 million to be made in international rights.
Then there are the sneakier income streams — wedding vendors will be willing to pay big bucks to be featured in the celebrity nuptials of the year.
At the end of the day, I”m predicting this marriage could net the Kardashians at least $5 million.
