New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries is officially engaged to Kim Kardashian. Humphries slipped a 20.5 carat diamond ring on the reality-show star's finger last week. It's amazing the publicity-crazed family kept the engagement under wraps for so long. Must have been planning a TV series or store opening.
E News confirmed that the 26 year-old Humphries popped the question to his 30 year-old bride-to-be on May 18 at Kardashian's Beverly Hills home.
To put the token of love into perspective, Kate Middleton's rock is a paltry 18 carat piece of bling.
Kardashian's response to the big moment, after six months of courtship, was blogging "OMGGGGGG" to her legion of fans.
Those Kardashian girls seem to have caught NBA fever. Kim's sister Khloe is married to Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom--a relationship which was custom made for a cable television audience. This relationship should be no different.
Expect another annoying reality show counting down the days to Humphries and Kardashian's big day. Just what the world needs more shrieking woman and shameless self-promotion. At least we get to see Bruce Jenner try to make his facial muscles work.
The good news for Humphries, he is still an NBA player. The bad news, he's still a New Jersey Net. Have fun in Newark Kim.
