Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries make $18 million off wedding

The buxom reality-TV diva and her basketball-playing hubby, Kris Humphries, raked in a lot more than a few toasters when they tied the knot last night — scoring about $17.9 million by turning the ceremony into a media extravaganza.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Some were concerned that Kris Humphries’ basketball career would suffer by marrying Kim Kardashian.

And some, like our own Paul Eide, were concerned that the Kim-Kris pairing would suffer the fate of other marriages involving a celebrity and NBA player.

Well, does it even matter?

Reports indicate Kardashian and Humphries are poised to earn a cool $18 million by selling the rights to their special – and lucrative – day. 

Heck, Hump’ can retire today from his gig as a mostly mediocre power forward.

It doesn’t matter if the players and owners ever agree to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. And it doesn’t matter if he ever signs another NBA contract.

He’s good. Very good.

Clearly, being Mr. Kim Kardashian is a far better racket than being Kris Humphries.
