Kim Kardashian Keeping Humphrey’s Bling.

Kim Kardashian’s refusal to return her engagement ring from basketball star Kris Humphries has already lasted fives longer than their actual marriage.

Kardashian contends that she has no obligation to return the bling because the former couple’s prenup states that she is entitled to keep the estimated $2 million 21.5 Carat diamond. Humphries says that the marriage was a total sham and that Kim only wed him for publicity so therefore she has no right to keep such an expensive gift.

The estranged couple is set to return to court in mid February to determine a trial date.

 

 

 

 

Are you Getting Married this year on December 12th?

Yes, this year December 12th comes out to 12-12-12, the last triple date for the next 100 years!

Wedding planners, Caterers, hotels and restaurants are flooding the airwaves and print media with advertisements of special offers for weddings on 12/12/12.  A range of options,  from “luxurious” ceremonies to “economy” models are being offered. Price ranges, are accompanied by misty soft-focus illustrations of wedding rings, cakes and adoring couples gazing longingly at each other.

No doubt the inside band of the diamond engagement rings and wedding bands will be inscribed with “12-12-12″  in addition to an additional personal message or phrase.

Cities and towns all over the world from Australia to Finland to Russia, to the USA, and Asia are reporting a torrent of bookings of wedding ceremonies on December 12.

One country, however, is an exception to this wedding booking frenzy and that is Bulgaria.

The Bulgarian Orthodox Church is currently observing the 40-day lent period of Advent before Christmas, a time during which weddings are not allowed.

Church weddings are ceremonial but not legal, given that Bulgaria’s constitution specifies that marriage is a civil union between a man and a woman – a provision, by the way, that forestalls gay marriages in Bulgaria. December 12 will see only weddings at state civil marriage offices on a strictly heterosexual basis.

 

A $10,000 Valentine Day’s Diamond Proposal

Luxist reports that The Algonquin Hotel in New York City is now offering the most expensive martini ever.

The Grey Goose $10,000 proposal cocktail comes with a one-of-a-kind diamond ring placed in the glass. This specialty cocktail is served by a white gloved waiter in a crystal glass on a silver platter in the hotel’s famous Blue Bar. The hotel arranges for clients to work with a private jeweler to customize the engagement ring by picking carat size, number of stones and the setting. The hotel needs at least 72 hours notice to set up this arrangement.

Guys, don’t forget or slur your proposal speech.
