Kim Kardashian wedding and gala covered from all angles
Daybreak’s PM edition provides a rundown of The Big Wedding (and other jazz), all the while wondering why so many people find this even the slightest bit interesting. Ah, we kid.
THE WIRE-STORY BASICS: “SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) -- Kris Humphries has officially caught up with Kim Kardashian. The basketball pro and the reality star are husband and wife. Kardashian, 30, and Humphries, 26, tied the knot Saturday night in the exclusive Montecito area near Santa Barbara, Calif.” http://apne.ws/nXoSy1
Now that that’s out of the way, a shocking revelation: Per People, “Before meeting his soon-to-be-bride Kim Kardashian at the end of the aisle on Saturday evening, Kris Humphries needed to shake off a little case of the nerves Waiting to walk out in front of the nearly 450 guests and E! cameras that were recording his and Kim's wedding. . . Humphries remarked to his groomsmen about just how he was feeling. "I'm nervous," he told his pals before preparing to take his place at the altar.” http://bit.ly/qwEj0C
But he made it through, as did many other A-listers. Expectations had been high. Basketball player Carmelo Anthony attended with wife La La Vazquez, who Tweeted: "Butterflies in my stomach for @KimKardashian & @Krishumphries...beyond excited for today! the Anthonys are on our way! Love is in the Air!" Ryan Seacrest, who was there with Julianne Hough, Tweeted en route: "On the way to @kimkardashian's wedding…Traffic so bad on the [Highway] 101 I had to stop at cold stone creamery."
Later, he described the event as "Beautiful..kim looked regal, a perfect night. I just danced with the whole family."
In a tent separate from where the ceremony took place, Robin Thicke introduced the married couple as "Mr. and Mrs. Humphries," before Kim and Kris danced their first dance to Thicke's "Angels."
Dinner was by celebrated chef Wolfgang Puck. http://bit.ly/oNAfbJ
After which, the six foot tall black and white cake was presented. It was designed by Hansen Cakes in L.A., per Celebuzz. The couple wanted the cake to resemble Prince William and Kate Middleton’s and it reportedly cost $15,000. So did Humphries smash a piece of cake in Kim’s face? No way! http://bit.ly/pLnnru
Then it was time to par-TAY, and the L.A. Times reports that “Dancing went until about 1:30 a.m., with guests shuttled to hotels in Santa Barbara.” But in the ‘hood, some folks got a bit agitated.
They obviously weren’t invited, because TMZ found that the “wedding posse of 460 were too loud for the neighbors ... law enforcement tells us the residents were so pissed off over the noise, they called the cops. We're told several neighbors reached their limit at 11:30 PM and called the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department. Deputies paid a visit to the ritzy estate where Kim's bash was in full gear, and asked them to turn the music down, which they promptly did. A Sheriff's official tells TMZ ... none of the neighbors wanted to sign an official complaint so no one was cited. http://bit.ly/q8RNE8
What they missed was Lindsay Lohan, who donned a white version of Pippa Middleton’s glamorous green Temperley gown which she wore to her sister’s royal wedding; Temperley’s PR team says they didn’t lend Lohan the gown, but believe she purchased it from their L.A. store. http://bit.ly/p7TbOt
Meanwhile, per, perezhilton, “Joel McHale has revealed that he's not allowed to make fun of the Kardashians on his show The Soup, which airs on E!, the same station as Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Joel says: "I know the Kardashians don’t like me. Reality stars without exception have come up to me and have said, ‘Thank you for making fun of me.’ We made so much fun of [Bachelor star] Jake Pavelka, and he responded by coming on the show. With the Kardashians, we’re not allowed to say they have a sex tape anymore because the network flips out." http://bit.ly/rnM5pj
MOVING ON: This is a really good read. Per indieWIRE, “It goes like this. Sean Penn talks to Le Figaro and implies (Exhibit A) Terrence Malick underutilized him in The Tree of Life. The New Yorker’s Richard Brody defends Malick and upholds the idea that actors are the equivalent of colors on a painter’s brush (“Penn brings an acid yellow to the glass-and-metal grays of his scenes, and it adds something important to the film”), and that Penn’s lack of understanding of his own performance doesn’t undermine the power or purpose of it. InContention’s Kris Tapley calls Penn’s comments a bitch-slap.” http://bit.ly/r2ZcO7
POLITICO BLINK: Quoted: “What I wanted to tell him is to get pissed off, get fighting mad ... But I know he won’t because he doesn’t think it’s politically smart," Morgan Freeman told the Boston Globe after running into President Obama on the green at the Vineyard Golf Club. He added, “If I could vote for him 1,000 times, I would.” http://politi.co/r1391P
JUST THE FACTS: Per Rolling Stone, “The Indiana State Fair stage collapse is likely to claim its seventh victim this afternoon. Meaghan Toothman, a 24-year-old woman, is still on life support but is scheduled for surgery later today to have her organs harvested.” http://bit.ly/nwog91
