Kris Jenner: Kim Didn't Make a Dime Off Her Wedding


Maybe "Kim Kardashian's Fairytale Wedding" wasn't as profitable as we all thought.

Kim's mom, Kris Jenner, hit the radio circuit this morning to address her daughter's divorce from husband of 72 days Kris Humphries -- and shot down rumors the former-couple profited from their TV wedding.

"Kim had to make a very difficult decision," Jenner told Johnjay and Rich (via Us Weekly) earlier today. "Whatever her decision was at the time, I'm just here to support her as her mom and make sure she's okay today."

As for reports that Kim and Kris made money off of their televised nuptails, which E! had the exclusive rights to, Kris says Kim "didn't make a dime." Jenner adds, "She actually spent millions of dollars on this wedding, so it's not something that she thought would ever not be happily ever after."

And all those wedding gifts all her friends and family sent? Well, there's this: "I'm sure Kim will make a ginormous donation, as she does all the time anyway, very quietly, to a wonderfully deserving charity or children's hospital or something like that," Kris explained.

Kim echoed her mother's statements in a blog posted on her website Tuesday afternoon. "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."

The reality starlet also wrote, "First and foremost, I married for love. I can’t believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show! I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make."

How much of the Kardashian Kool-Aid are you drinking? Believe her? Sound off below!

It's a shame Kim is giving up so easily. The first year of marriage is said to be the hardest. It's really sad that they are not working at it.

This is a bunch of crap. Are you kidding me? This is all for publicity. These people are heartless and inconsiderate. Why continue to lie? She didn't make a dime? Yeah, right. It was all for money. It was all for publicity. Thank you for ruining the sanctity of marriage for everyone.

I am not buying ounce of the kool-aide! This is a family of fameaholics (my own word) and the mother pimps out her own daughters to make money for the Kardashian Empire!
I have no respect for Kris Jenner or her lack of parenting. Parenting your child does not and should not include teaching them how to whore themselves out to make it big and to get rich! What happened to the old fashioned honest way! This marriage was as fake as Kim, Kris and the reset of that fake family. The only real ones seems to be Bruce and Rob because the y seem to not to be all together there or have a clue!

Shame on this entire family! I am not sure what happened to make any of them "famous" "celebrities"....Because Mom was married to the "best friend" of a murderer, and or because she was "best friends" with the victim of the murder. Mom married an Olympic Athlete, who has now had so much plastic surgery we hardly recognize him. So the girls opened a Boutique and worked should they have not because they are children of "privilege". All three of the older girls are all about one might have over the other..No wonder the President does not like his girls to watch this program. No pride, no self respect just give me, give me, give me, look at me, look at me, look at me..TRASH!!

What a load of crap!! She should have donated the millions that she supposedly spent on this wedding to a worthy cause. Lets face it, when does Kim Kardashian ever do anything "quietly"? She got famous for her sex tape and has banked from it ever since. She isnt a role model, she is a sad woman with all the money in the world and no happiness in her heart. So sad.....

I only like 2 Kardashians Robert and Bruce Jenner

If Kim spent her money on the wedding [which I will never believe] then why isn't she staying married and working on her relationship? She didn't want to move to MN because people will forget her? Kim has a HUGE asset will anyone ever forget that/her?

Gimmee a physical break! This entire family is on our radar because Kim whored herself out to a has been rapper on film and the family reaped the $ benefits (coupled with what their father left them...I'm sure he must be rolling over in his grave!) Now, the mom profits off of pimping out her kids, ALL OF THEM, and as their manager, makes big bucks off of everything they do. They are all such vapid, self centered, narcissistic, fame whores it boggles the mind! And poor Kris Humphries; that poor schuck didn't see this coming! Hell, he didn't even know that little miss Kim had been married before until they aired it on the reality show!! This entire manipulative debacle is so low, even for the KKK (K's Kardashian Klan). To try to convince us all that this wasn't a publicity stunt on the part of the Kardashian Klan is insulting! Kris Humphries appears to be a nice fellow and was sucked in to the most wicked, manipulative, game playing, ruthless, money grubbing, greedy, publicity seeking family I've ever heard about. Maybe being associated with him wasn't as publicly or monetarily beneficial to the family so they had to dump him!? He's better off!!!

The Kardashian's scheme has been discovered by the entire world and yet they CONTINUE to lie. That's it Kardashian's kiss your fame goodbye. People have caught onto your act. You've all sold your souls to the devil, and he is now coming to collect. I hope those millions of dollars can be wired to your bank account in hell.

"I'm sure Kim will make a ginormous donation, as she does all the time anyway, very quietly, to a wonderfully deserving charity or children's hospital or something like that," Kris explained.

Yeah right, Kris. Your daughter broadcast herself having sex, broadcast her wedding, and every aspect of her life in between (and made sure to cash in on it). If your daughter ever did one good deed such as donating to a charity or volunteered her time at a homeless shelter or soup kitchen, I'm sure we'd know about it because you would have jammed that down our throats too.

It's too late now, you and your daughters just showed just what vain, greedy, manipulative skanks you really are. Because if your daughter was really a talented, young starlet who was truly in love, she wouldn't have broadcast one of the most private moments of her life for the world to see. And most REAL stars don't accept gifts/money for their wedding, they'd rather have you donate to a chosen charity right there on the spot.

BTW: How much you want to bet there's going to be a big story in the news about Kim donating her wedding gifts/money

Stop supporting anything to do with those nasty Kardashians; it’s time for them to go away. They are a scourge on society and terrible role models for our youth. Just think: Father helped a murderer go free (he hid duffel bag of bloody clothes and defended O.J.), Mother is an adulteress, Kim is famous for pornography in which she let a man urinate on her, Kourtney has flaunted having a child out of wedlock, Rob is a bum (has never worked), sponging off of others, and the entire family lies to the public claiming what is scripted on their show by Ryan Seacrest is reality. And the most disgusting part of all is that they are about nothing other than excess, they have no redeeming qualities to offer society at all. Making a mockery of the holy union on marriage (for publicity) was the last straw. They are disgusting and it is time for this to end.

Maybe "Kim" individually hasn't made a "dime" off that wedding, but we all know that Kris Jenner knows how the carefully craft her words, because she has had years of dealing with press releases, the paparazzi, etc. While it may be true that "Kim" didn't make a "dime" off E's broadcasting rights for "Kim's Fairytale Wedding," we know that Kim Kardashian, Inc., or one of the other Kardashian "s" corporations made the money. True. Kim didn't make a dime. But their "brand" made millions. The same is true for the People Magazine photo rights to the wedding. I am sure that Mrs. Jenner didn't "give" People an exclusive to photograph the wedding. Further, as for returning the lavish wedding gifts (nothing at "Geary's" is inexpensive!), Mrs. Jenner has told reporters that she is "sure that Kim will make a 'ginormous' donation to a charity or children's hospital as she usually does." What? Is that supposed to be in lieu of returning the gifts? To that, I have to say, "Oh my God!" Perhaps, Mrs. Jenner would be wise to read the 18th edition of Emily Post's book on marriage etiquette. Every single gift from Kim's guests that is unused should be returned with a polite note. As for gifts that have been used, I think Ms. Kardashian should make her "ginormous" donation to one of her many charities, and then send a note to the guest who gave her the gift and explain why the gift wasn't returned (because it has been used already), thank the guest, and then tell the guest that a donation in an amount equivalent to the price of the gift has been made to charity in the guest's name. Kris Humphries needs to do the same thing with gifts received from the paltry number of guests he was "allowed" to invite to the wedding.

Watching the Kardashians' reality series has been one of my guilty pleasures up until now, and I do no*****ch any other reality tv show. Scratch this viewer from the list. I always thought it was strange that the show was called "Kim's Fairytale Wedding ... A Kardashian Event." Shouldn't it have been called "Kim & Kris's Fairytale Wedding"?? Although, after watching it, it became clear that the name "Kris" in the title would have referred to Mrs. Jenner, not Kris Humphries. I personally didn't care for his sense of humor (if that's what you call it), but he was right on when Kim, in one of her many pre-wedding tantrums, said she has been "planning this wedding" since she was a little girl. Kris's retort was, "Yeah, and you can just slide any guy right into it." Boy oh boy was he ever right.

One thing Mrs. Jenner might want to proceed with as her newest business venture is "Hump Perfume" -- because all of us viewers got you-know-what in the you-know-where for buying into this so-called love story.
