  • Aibee August 22, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Okay BellaNaija, even though you ‘copied and pasted’ the gist from other sources, una for check for typos and grammatical errors now. This is far below BN standard.

  • ugo August 22, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    They didnt spend any money.On the contrary they made a lot of money .

  • Lucy August 22, 2011 at 1:18 pm

  • Sisan August 22, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    Love the Kardashians. Although, I wish Kim was getting married to Reggie Bush now but I wish her and Kris a happy married life.xoxo

  • zee August 22, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    To me Kim looked ordinary because she has done all the over-the-top looks in this world already. so we’ve basically seen it all. and she looked really fat, she shud have done the lace thing and covered up…I can see ara-mkpa abu (armpit breasts) hanging from her strapless gown….and Oh I would have been happier if it was Reggie bush that was the groom. That dude sure knows how to keep kim grounged and he was a true star athlete and rich too. I hear what Kris earns in 4years is far less than what kim makes in a year….O well, wish them all the best. I hope she doesnt make him a doormat

    • Z August 23, 2011 at 6:30 pm

      “ara-mkpa abu” dang girl! She’s got big breasts, it is normal for them to sometimes spill over. No need to be vicious. She looks and simply bridal…you really can’t wrong with that.
      I wish for the best for both of them. The whole thing seems a bit rushed to me, I hope they both don’t regret getting married…

    • Rainbow August 24, 2011 at 11:07 am

      Wow Zee, your comment has hater written all over it…repeat after me POSITIVE energy! lol!…your comment alone can jinx the couple…Kim is a doll, well endowed with great looks glad she looked like herself on her wedding day and no attempt to over dramatize her looks…yeah i do hope they last..but then again who cares, they are so much fun to watch!

  • Loriee August 22, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    Money Gives You respect sha !

  • AdaAda August 22, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    Ummm, nice wedding but it doesn’t seem genuine. Sorry, just my opinion.

  • nanly August 22, 2011 at 3:59 pm

  • titi August 22, 2011 at 4:05 pm

  • Jess August 22, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    Mason is just soooo cute.

  • daisy August 22, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    Nice wedding bt hope d marriage lasts. N sweet baby mason was lookin as cute as can can be. Awww!

  • Jasmine August 22, 2011 at 6:26 pm

    Next thing is they would have their own reality tv show, the Kardashians are all over our screens (i like them anyways) Mason looks so much like his father,kai!!!
    Happy married life sha.

  • Mimi August 22, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Jeez people…she looks amazing- Half of us ain’t blessed with good looks and gorgeous hair like the Kardashians. Armpit fat…God- free the poor gal, she worked her butt off at the gym…give her a break…People will never get satisfied, if she is thin, they would say its anorexia. She is gorgeous, she made something out of nothing but her good looks and yes she is not married to Reggie Bush, but she is married to a man who stepped up and put a ring on it..

  • AJCiti August 22, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    We can all agree the wedding was beautiful but what really matters is the marriage, I hate to sound like a debbie downer but lets see how long it lasts. I really feel like all of these celebrities live fake lives.

    The Kardashians are famous for absolutely no reason so they have to keep doing things to keep the public interested in their lives because keeping people’s attention on them is the only way they’ll continue to make money. I feel like Kim’s wedding is just another part of her “career”.

    • my day August 24, 2011 at 9:44 am

      my dear, am with u all the way on that. My sister asked what made them ‘celebrities’ and i hung my head in confusion…absolute blank! God help them sha, even though i can almost certainly say we’ll roll out the big guns if this lasts five years. God be with them

  • mee2 August 22, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    pls give Bn a break abeg only pple magazine got d exclusive rights to d pictures and its not even going to be published until their next issue.

  • keira August 22, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    All them haters! Hi hater… Bye hater! She looks tem times hooter than u@zee,so how dare u sit behind ur screen. Critisizn her! She’s a gem lookn fab always ! U on d other hand… No comment! Go hug transformer! Hehehe! Luv d khardashians foreva!

  • keira August 22, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    Oops meant ten times hotter! #ok bye

  • chillysauce August 22, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    i never watch their shows… too fake… too scripted. but they r successful, hell yeah! Kim is beautiful.. cant wait to hear d divorce details

    • El Bee August 23, 2011 at 1:55 am

      LOL! Dang! the “divorce details”? lol

    • Claire Negbenebor August 26, 2011 at 10:35 am

      I sincerely pray this is not said about you when you get married. What will it take from you to wish them the best? What?

  • Bondgirl August 22, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    Thanks bella naija for this, amazing and truly entertaining! Xoxo

  • teezamee August 22, 2011 at 10:07 pm

    congrats Kim…hope dis lasts sha!!

  • mamav August 22, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    Its a continuation of their show. They need to remain relevant. D wedding is beautiful. Its all part of it. I love the kardashians sistas. But dont bank or pray for a longlasting marriage for them am sure they dont need it. Just enjoy d show

  • coolcat August 23, 2011 at 12:25 am

    Chai, u pple r wicked o, see hating. I’d rather just be as objective as possible, highlight the issues but not necessarily judge.

    Firstly the rate of divorce overseas is just as bad as the number of unhappy marriages in nigeria. D diff is just that unlike our insecure, intimidated, self-loathing women here, they are strong and determined enough to walk away. Staying in an unhappy marriage is a disservice to the woman, her family and ultimately her kids if any. Ok, now I’m deviating.

    My adorable kim K is a celebrity in her own right. Y??? Cos as untalented as she is, we are “interested” in anything and everything that concerns her. Its called reality TV people! Her 1st marriage ended cos she was too young, and she did try to make it work but he was abusing her and her father had to wade in. I do wish it was reggie bush as well but from the length of time she spent with him, its obvious she is committed and can make a marriage last. She’s getting older, she was with reggie in her prime so twas work work work. Now even she knows its time to slow down so its defintely the best time for marriage.

    I’m not a fan of big-chested women wearing tube dresses and I was a tad bit disappointed but I don’t see any armpit fat oooo.

    Kris Jenner’s dress looks like a ceiling fan(I bet joan rivers would say so), kylie, kendall, kourt n khloe look normal but cutest of all was baby mason. Hmm, another scott in this world and there’s trouble!

    After all the fanfare, wedding has come and gone. Enjoy it Kim!

    • Claire Negbenebor August 26, 2011 at 10:49 am

      I really agree with your comment. They keep talking about divorce but how many of our parents still share a bedroom? How many of “us” still feel the same way about “our” husbands/boyfriends? Wish them the best/say nothing/run along. I don’t know where people get off analyzing people’s marriages. How perfect is your own? Kim Kardashian, as untalented as she might be, is a money making machine! Her business ventures will REMAIN cashcows. If we had that, wouldn’t we milk it too?

  • cherryberry August 23, 2011 at 12:28 am

    I’m a kardashian fan to bits & seriously, almost every female youth in naija wants to be like them…truth is,she’s one of the hottest girls to walk this earth & now she’s offiacially taken by a man who means well for her..so all u kim haters..go hug very wet transformer or beta still,dive inside river niger..bad belle people!

    • Chisolm August 23, 2011 at 5:26 pm

      @ Cherryberry, very lame remark!! I definitely don’t want to be like them, thank you!

  • nabila August 23, 2011 at 12:39 am

    lurv d kardashians,wish kim n chris a happy married life,,naija peeps r so freakin full of hate!!! gosh,,

  • Omolade remi August 23, 2011 at 9:28 am

    Thanks to BN for going an extra mile to keep fans updated. Keep up the good work, God bless you.

  • lola August 23, 2011 at 10:40 am

    I think Kim K is beautiful. Chomping at the bit to see her dresses. Read a few haterade comments but everyone is entitled to their 2 cents.
    I am however saddened by @cherryberry’s comment -“almost every female youth in naija wants to be like them”. Errrrr I hope this isn’t true because the blanket statement means we have a lot of ‘hardworking ‘ young women in Nigeria on their way to making sex tapes, cursing out their mothers, having children out of wedlock, hooking up randomly, drinking and generally behaving badly. I’m not saying everything about the Kardashian sisters is bad but I wouldn’t want my children, sisters, cousins or friends modeling themselves after them, no matter how hardworking, beautiful or rich they are.
    That being said, I am a sucker for weddings and romance and I wish KK and KH all the best.

    • Lala sunshine August 23, 2011 at 10:38 pm

      well said Lola…I’m with u all d way!!!

  • D Pretty August 23, 2011 at 10:56 am

    u couldnt have said it any beta@coolcat….. i wish kim kardashian-humphries a good life with her new hubby

  • :) August 23, 2011 at 11:35 am

    Darn, that’s the head piece I wanted for my wedding now everyone’s going to be copying her and it will be played out. Hiss. I don’t think that’s how the Armenian head bands look. I think it’s more Arab inspired. Wish her all the best.

    • Chichi August 23, 2011 at 5:11 pm

      You like the head piece?!! i think it takes away from her looks. Imagine her without it, she would have looked better! it’s a bit too much dazzle dazzle, the earrings + head piece! Lets see what Joan Rivers would have to say about that!

  • monalisa August 23, 2011 at 11:44 am

    Mason is sooo cute!!! goodluck to all of them…we ‘bind and laminate’ the spirit of divorce ooo!

  • Fashion police August 23, 2011 at 12:13 pm

    WOW. Love the aisle!! This what we call walking down the aisle. Brutal Bruce!! love you entire attire, pray your wife does not blind you with those helicopter wings on her chest. Mason my cutiee we learnt you dropped the pillow while walking down, but rescued the moment, please don’t be like ur father when you grow (just saying).

  • Fashion police August 23, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    Kris might not be the best for Kim but far better than insecure Reggie. And above all Kim loves him! Chiekina. Kim/Kris happy married life.

  • Chinwe August 23, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    Am happy for kim, the clour is wonderful, Kim/Kris happy married life

  • ije August 23, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    also Thank You, Bella.

  • primrose August 23, 2011 at 2:24 pm

    Kim looks pretty and to think her husband is half black half white,yeah just read it on globalgrind .com Kris’s dad is black and his mum is white, Kim sure love black men

  • primrose August 23, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    Kim Kardashian didn’t totally abandon her previous preference for Black men, Kris’ father is Black and his mother is white.

  • Mimi August 23, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    LOOOOOOOLL @ Zee’s comment…ara-mkpa abu (armpit breasts)

  • Chichi August 23, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    Well, there is a lesson in her story for every young girl out there, be careful what you do and who you do it with because it would forever hunt you!!!! Just read that there were 2 million unique visitors to the Kim K porn site on her wedding day! That is enough to dampen any man’s ego, poor Kris!

  • samsie August 23, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    Wow..so I learnt that headpiece is a new fad and not armenian…it was top pops at the met..ok goody..I expected more tho.monochrome wedding?black,white,it looked so dull..hopefully we get to see the videos which I think just keeps us watching their shows until whenever

  • tyna August 23, 2011 at 5:18 pm

    she luks beautiful as alwys n am happy fr thm bt i jst hop it wont end up as one of does celebrity wedding…………..

  • peace uchendu August 23, 2011 at 6:26 pm

  • jaybee August 23, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    i jus know i love me some kim k,too gorgeous for words..

  • Tinu August 23, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    I love weddings… they are always very beautiful and nice.. that day is going to come and go and what happens is the marriage.. I am just tired of seeing a lot of celebrity marriage fail that i do not even enjoy watching any celebrity wedding, cos in the back of my head i know 2 yrs-20 yrs from now u will hear there is a divorce.. So they have taken the joy of watching weddings out for me cos celebrities are celebrities.. Very few of their marriages last… Marriage is not easy its a challenge and i just hope they are ready to work at it and not let it fall into statistics like usual

  • ao August 23, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    I heard that the wedding cost around $10 million and there was even three wedding dresses. I just hope that the couple will put as much effort into staying married as they did in getting married.

    • me August 24, 2011 at 10:08 pm

      The babe made $17.9 M from her wedding. She is all about the $$$$. Even her wedding day was a business deal. Let’s see how long it lasts. She got most stuff free including the 3 Vera Wang Dresses at $20K + each, the cake was free and all the bottles of Ace of Spades they drank was free. Not to talk of the millons of dollars E! is going to pay her to air the four-hour, two-part TV special called Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event. It will be aired on E! in October (US). I can just imagine Kris Jenner aka KJ or Mama Kris saying “My 10%!!!”…LOL!!! Sorry Scott Disick, no money for you. Look for another wanna celeb that releases a sex vid to manage. Lawrence Fishbourne”s daughter is available.

  • THE AMAKA August 23, 2011 at 10:44 pm


  • viv August 23, 2011 at 11:52 pm

  • Love August 24, 2011 at 8:08 am

    WOW,see haters,it would be nice if u could stop criticizing,and if you can’t be happy for her, keep your negativity to yourselves!Congrats to her she looks happy and really isn’t that all that matters???Wishing you Kris and Kim all the best.

  • angel eyes August 24, 2011 at 10:23 am

    from what i heard, kim’s wedding to kris is part of the script of thier reality show written by ryan seacrest……….well, this is not hating but d wedding had been over-hyped so i was actually expecting more so kinda disappointed……..i see a divorce on the way thou…n b4 dat get prepared for sumtin like “kim n kris” reality show lol

  • vanillamilkshake August 24, 2011 at 11:43 am

    She looks beautiful as usual and the wedding looks classy as expected. but these hollywood weddings sha. i wouldnt be surprised if i hear something in 2 or 3 yrs time.

    Congrats Kim and Kris. God bless your union. **Your past is just that….PAST!!*

  • judith August 25, 2011 at 9:36 am

    I just think it’s a little sad that we gorge ourselves on these people. Admittedly,escapism is a welcome solace from the rigors of life;once in a while. But would you really want a sister, daughter or true friend with Kim-like priorities? I thought not. Hope sincerely that they can make it last. Unfortunately,he marriage institution is becoming less ‘marriage’, more ‘institution’ even in our own humble Nigeria.

  • Demmy August 25, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    I love Kim’s look. The Vera Wang dress is so beautiful and subtle and her hair and makeup looks gorgeous. What a lucky girl she is. Making seventeen million dollars from her wedding pictures. I envy her sometimes 🙂

  • junebug August 26, 2011 at 11:25 am

    Wow didn’t KH had black in him. I knew Kim K couldn’t go back once she had da black. Love the second wedding dress.

  • Nana Esi August 31, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Haters can never have this kind of wedding, fact!

  • mimmy September 1, 2011 at 3:19 am

    aww,i love all the dresses she wore, her makeup,she killed it, i wouldn’t take that way from her….. but we all know she’s gone under the knife severally and lots of botox treatments, nevertheless she is super hot. i can’t imagine how the Norwoods (Ray and Brandy) feel about kim considering they are responsible for d Kardarshians success and Kim is gradually becoming more celebrated than them.

  • angel orakwe September 1, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    hey kim,,u sure are a lucky cham…with all the guys uve eva dated i tink Kris is the right guy for you,,,,all the best gurl bt hope we wld still have the KARDASIAN SHOW RUNNING,,,SINCE all the ladies got families to attend to..

  • bankysangel September 7, 2011 at 10:10 am

    @monalisa …’bind and laminate’…? LWKMD! But sincerely, i really wish Kim a beautiful married life. She has looked for love for so long and now that she’s found it( i hope?), i cannot but be happy for her. May God be with her in her marriage.

    • bankysangel September 7, 2011 at 10:17 am

      I must add, what a beautiful wedding! Beautiful people everywhere, beautiful dresses, beautiful decor, and above all, beautiful couple!

  • chicco September 15, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    what is funny is that nigerians are the only ones that seem to love “the Kardashians”. i live in Canada and i know here and in the States, they aint loved as much, cos they think they are not good role models and do nothing for the society….

  • Ess Kay November 1, 2011 at 11:12 am
