Since I'm not a mental health professional, I hesitate to start asking the question that has to be on the minds of everyone who watches Kim Kardashian continue her efforts to make herself into a celebrity without actually doing anything that celebrities usually do--namely, possess real talents that meritoriously bring them the right kind of public attention. She has become somewhat manic as of late, somehow finding an adult male who will marry her.
Well, that's a little mean. I'm sure that she's a good person. Her attention to style and glamour is amazing for a young woman. She cares for her appearance at a very high level. But the swirl of confusion and attention around her is reaching a significantly high level. She is maintaining a tremendous public profile and, with that, comes an enormous amount of stress. Simply handling the stress of trying to be famous without possessing a tangible talent that people can identify might very well be its own talent.
Her business sense, however, is still impeccable:
Kim Kardashian is safeguarding her savings before saying "I do" to fiance Kris Humphries. "Her mom, Kris Jenner, drew up the contracts," a source tells Us Weekly.Mr. Humphries is signing up for a significant amount of distraction. Will that help with his career? I hope so. Losing that $3.2 million per year playing in the NBA is going to be tough on this young man.
"Kim's Beverly Hills home and all of her assets are protected," the insider says of Kardashian, 30, who Forbes estimates made $12 million in 2010.
"Additionally, she keeps anything she earns during the marriage."
The groom-to-be, 26 (who makes $3.2 million a year as a New Jersey Nets forward), seems cool with the contract's terms.
