Ryan Seacrest wasn’t lying when he dubbed E!’s hit show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” back in October 2007. Because fast forward two years later and not only is Khloe Kardashian making it difficult to “keep up,” but she’s blowing the average bride and her average timeline out of the water! Set to wed Lamar Odom, current LA Lakers forwarding funk master, Kardashian decided to throw bridal norms to the breeze and blow right into her big day!
While it’s not unusual for Hollywood Hunnies to do what they want when it comes to wedded bliss (and then, undo… maybe even redo again), their standards almost never seem to match up with the rest of the world’s. For instance, most future “I do’ers” take their time courting and getting to know each another before giving the infamous “Will you marry me?” speech. Kardashian and Odom, however, said a big fat “ppppppffffffftttt” to that and set their wedding date a mere FIVE WEEKS after they met!
You heard me. After only twelve days of dating, they announced their engagement, and before the media had proper time to feast and recover from that winner winner chicken dinner, Kardashian and Lamar one upped ‘em again by announcing they’d already set the date… for this Sunday, September 27. Yowsas!
Without even batting an eyelash, Kardashian will take a couple of weeks to plan what the average bride takes 12-18 months to resurrect, proving once again, you’d need to run really fast (dare I even say, DASH?) to keep up. And with all this celebrity rushing, it’s left the rest of us all thinking – but not talking – about the giant, pink elephant in the room… how long until these “I do’s” turn into ”I do not’s?”
There, I said it. I hate that I said it, especially because I would die to be on the list of 200 receiving an invitation this week and will keep my fingers crossed until Friday, but I said it. I guess over the years, my little, celebrity luvin’ heart has learned to hope for the best but prepare for the worst. So, good luck Khloe and Lamar! Here’s to proving everyone wrong :)
