Most celebs do a press tour and stop by the late night talk shows to promote a new movie or TV show, Kim Kardashian does a press tour to promote her engagement ring. But with a ring like that, can you blame her?
Kim K sat down with Tonight Show host Jay Leno and spent most of the interview talking about her engagement to her basketball player beau, Kris Humphries.
She says they knew from early on that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together and that she knew she wanted to marry Humphries at “month two.” Month one was very “When Harry Met Sally” for the couple but at month two it was like “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” y’all.
She tells Jay exactly how the engagement happened. She came home one day, saw no cars in the driveway, thought about going on the internet, but instead thought “no, I’ll go up to my room,” and lo and behold, the future Mr. Kardashian had rearranged her furniture and spelled out “Will You Marry Me?” in rose petals on the carpet.
Her response? She gasped and then squeaked out a “yes.”
Kim says they plan to be wed by the end of summer and Jay asked if the nuptials will be on TV or if the wedding has a sponsor, he jokes, “We’re Shell Oil and we want to sponsor your wedding.” Kim nervously laughs while offstage Kris Jenner is googling Shell Oil’s publicity department.
Kim tells Jay how her fiancé played for the New Jersey Nets and Jay wonders if he signs with the team again would she move to New Jersey for him. “Yeah, he’s my husband,” she says. I see a very lucrative reality show in her future if that were true. MTV and E! are already at a bidding war to the rights to “Kim and Kris Take New Jersey.”
