What Could Have Been: The Karda$hian Wedding Debacle

Kieran Daly, Staff Writer

On August 20th, 2011 in Montecito, California Kim Kardashian married NBA star Kris Humphries of the New Jersey Nets. Now, 72 days later, they are getting a divorce.

The wedding cost the couple nothing, although if they had paid it would have cost $20million. Three $20,000 Vera Wang gowns and $400,000 worth of Perrier-Jouët champagne were given free, as were invitations from Lehr & Black estimated at $10,000 and $750,000 for catering for the 500 guests at the reception.

This money could have spent on so many better things than a marriage that only lasted 72 days.

With that money you could have bought eight Bugatti Veyron Super Sports, which is the most expensive car in the world at a total of $2.4 million.

Torchy’s Tacos has just opened up down the road and is always packed with hungry customers ready to consume some of their expensive food. If you were to go to Torchy’s with $20 million you could buy 4.7 million tacos. Prefer to eat at Subway? With that money you could buy 4 million foot-long subs.

Are you a coffee person? Then you might like to know that $20 million could buy you four million Starbucks venti coffees. Just think –  that is a lifetime of coffee used on a marriage that lasted 72 days.

The newest innovation in T.V is the 3D T.V. The only problem is that it is so expensive. But with that money you could buy a Panasonic 3D T.V, in fact, you could buy 8889 of them.

It’s an outrage that $20 million was spent on what some tabloids are calling a “scam.” It would have been okay if the couple had stayed together, but as they didn’t, it was all wasted. That money could have spent on so much more.

What do you think? What would you have spent that money on? Answer in the comments below.
