Last night, the final two hours of Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event aired. And if you managed to sit through three hours and 33 minutes, you were finally rewarded with an actual wedding. But more on that later.
E! packed even more wedding prep into last night’s special leading up to the actual nuptials. Seating charts, catering menus, a bridal shower, and bachelor and bachelorette parties Vegas style. All of which had Kim making this important life observation: “I don’t know how Elizabeth Taylor got married so many times!” So really, part 2 was just a continuation of part 1. But with the wedding right around the corner, Kim finally answered some of the important questions brought up in Sunday’s special. Which Vera Wang wedding dress would she choose? Why choose just one? Let’s go with three. Would she hire Robin Thicke or Christina Aguilera to perform on the big day? Mr. Thicke won the job and was seen serenading the newlyweds during their first dance. Also seen: Rob Kardashian showing off his pre-Dancing with the Stars moves.
The fight between Kim and Khloe from part 1 was still going full force in last night’s episode. They still weren’t speaking to each other, but spent a lot of time in their confessional interviews talking about not speaking to each other. But Khloe decided to put it all in the past, and she showed up at Kim’s bachelorette party. Talking about penis necklaces resolves all.
Kim was also seen enjoying her husband’s home state of Minnesota for one of his charity events at a Boys and Girls Club. The highlight of this was meeting Kris’ grandparents Don and Donna. They didn’t speak much, but they looked really cute. The trip also resulted in Kim giving Kris a pedicure while he farted in front of her. Real-life fairytales really do happen, people.
The couple returned to L.A. for more wedding planning and inevitable run-ins with the paparazzi. So Kris encouraged Kim to move to Minnesota with him and start pumping out babies. This is only the first of many battles Kris will lose with his now-wife. Speaking of arguments Kris had no chance in winning, much of the episode was spent discussing whether Kim would change her last name to Humphries. Not helping was mama Kris’ insistence that Kim keep her name as is. And perhaps making the worst argument for anything in the history of all time, mama Kris said to Kim: “Britney Spears didn’t change her name!” Sorry, Mr. Humphries. At least you have that mustache!
As a form of solidarity, Kris grew a mustache right before the wedding because he felt (and rightfully so) that it was the only thing he still had any control over. But he even sacrificed the ‘stache before heading down the aisle. Kim and Kris continued to argue about the last name, right up until the very end when Kim finally decided she was going to be a Kardashian forever and always, till death does she (not) part.
Meanwhile, Bruce Jenner was busy becoming my new favorite Kardashian. He brought over some of Robert Kardashian Sr.’s old shirts to Kim so she could incorporate something of her dad’s into her three dresses. And then, before I even knew what had happened, I was crying! What’s wrong with me? Anyway, after I recovered from the sentimental moment, it was pretty much time for Kardashian name dropping as the likes of Serena Williams, Cheryl Burke, Mark Ballas, Mario Lopez, Sugar Ray Leonard, and others arrived for the biggest event in E!’s history. (Sorry Khloe and Lamar.)
Then it was time for the actual wedding. And with the exception of Kourtney tripping while walking down the aisle with Mason in her hands, it was surprisingly uneventful. An “I do” here. An “I do” there. And it was all over with. There you have it folks. Kris and Kim are married! But you probably already knew that because it happened two months ago.
Did you tune in for part 2? What was your favorite part? Did you see the groundwork laid for a Jenner family spinoff when Bruce was talking to his biological children at the wedding? (Jamming with the Jenners, anyone?) Sound off in the comments below.
