We’ve been seeing them in the headlines and tabloids for months as they planned their over the top wedding, engagements parties, including their outlandish wedding registry. And I know that no one is shocked by the recent news of a Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries split.
Yes, less than 3 months after they said “I Do,” they’re Splitsville.
As with any breakup, I’m sure there is heartache and pain and I certainly don’t wish that on anyone. But my immediate thought when I heard this news wasn’t “Oh, she must be devastated.”
It was more like, “I wonder what they’re going to do with that $10,000 ladle they registered for.”
I understand that Kim Kardashian is loaded with cash. And there’s nothing wrong with that. But it is tragic when there are children in this world who don’t have clean water to drink, food to eat or clothes on their backs while others ask for wedding gifts such as or a $6500 vase. Especially when they could easily buy it themselves and ask that any gifts given are in the form of donations to an orphanage or inner city school.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not against capitalism and being financially successful.
I just believe that if you have everything you need, including endless amounts of money, then the right thing to do is to help someone else who isn’t as fortunate as you. Use your resources to help create opportunities for someone who was dealt a lesser hand.
I vote that an auction of all their wedding gifts be held and the proceeds go to building water systems in a third world country or an orphanage or a legit humanitarian organization.
Because the real tragedy isn’t that Kim Kardashian is getting divorced.
