Kardashian Wedding Scores Record Ratings for E!

Guess the quickie wedding between Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom paid off...as far as E! is concerned anyway. The special episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians aired last night, and brought in record ratings for the cable network.

We got to see Khloe and Lamar's whirlwind 9-day romance before their huge wedding that happened in late September. The days leading up to the nuptials included stress, planning, fighting, and tears.

But the crazy hectic affair proved to be great for E! and executive producer Ryan Seacrest, since 3.2 million viewers tuned in.

Khloe said in a statement to CNN, "I was skeptical to have everything documented because it was such an emotional time but now that's its done I think it is such a positive and beautiful thing. I don't think any of us expected the show or this episode to do so well. In the beginning we just did it for fun, for ourselves and it has snowballed into this huge thing. I am just shocked every time I see the numbers and hear all the comments."

She says her new husband was also impressed. "Lamar has seen the episode and he loved it, but he was skeptical of it. He's a guy and of course he thinks that he looks corny on television."

As for the rumors that the two will be having kids right away, she says, "We definitely talk about it. Right now we are house hunting and we are not planning to have a baby but we're not doing anything to not have a baby right now," Kardashian said.

"I would be over the moon if I was having a baby but right now our focus in on finding a house. They say it's a buyers' market but no one is selling and I think it would be very stressful to have a baby in a condo downtown."

Did you tune in last night? What did you think of the special?
