Hey, remember that time Kim Kardashian planned that huge, multimillion-dollar wedding to Kris Humphries? And remember how she received a stupid amount of really expensive gifts from all her A(ish)-list friends for doing so? And then remember how, 72 days later, she was like, "I'm quittin' this bitch" and she divorced her basketball-playing husband and that was that? Well, justice has finally been served. (Not really.) Kim Kardashian just made a really big donation to a charity for wasting everybody's time and money. (Wack.)
Apparently, Kim recently tallied up the cost of all the gifts she received -- and, all together, her guests bought her $100,000 worth of stuff. So what she did in order to right things was donate double that amount -- $200,000 -- to the Dream Foundation, a wish-granting organization for adults with life-limiting illnesses. In a note addressed to all wedding attendees, Kim said: "I would like to thank you for your generous and thoughtful wedding gift. It has taken me some time to pull everything together but I wanted to let you know that the money for every gift received by me at my wedding has been donated to the Dream Foundation."
Yeah, it's nice that Kim made such a hefty donation and all, but here's my one little problem with this sitch: Celebs and rich people make big donations to charities all the time. They don't need to call off marriages to do so; they just do. What Kim should have done was return all the gifts to their respective owners and made the donation. And Kris Humphries agrees -- he thinks she has no right to keep all those sweet gifts, and he wants her to return them now. I mean, those were meant for both her and Kris and the life they were going to start together, not to collect dust in the kitchen Kim's never in because she's always traveling. Weak. Sauce.
Whatever, though. I guess the charity donation is better than nothing. But if I were a guest, I'd want my Cuisinart back. Just sayin'.
Do you think Kim did the right thing, or do you think she should have done more?
