Is it sad that while everyone else was wondering what Kim Kardashian wore to her wedding, I was thinking “I wonder if she got her guests to sign a privacy agreement.” Law school has definitely taken over my brain. I read a case about Catherine Zeta-Jones’ wedding to Michael Douglas where they sued Hello Magazine. The case was called Douglas vs. Hello and is from 2001 (but also again 2003, 2005)! I’ll save you all the details, but basically they signed a deal with OK! Magazine to be the exclusive distributor of their selected wedding pics. Someone leaked the pics from the wedding (surprise surprise) and Hello magazine published unauthorized pics. Ultimately the court said the wedding wasn’t really private despite the guests signing a privacy statement since it was unreasonable to expect that a large wedding correlated to privacy.
In Kim’s case, I think she wouldn’t mind if pics were released. After all, the Kardashians are reality stars and enjoy publicity. However, I still wonder about paparazzi intrusion into their lives. I don’t think anyone wants to be on film 24/7 and I hope, at least initially, Kim and her new hubby get some to themselves out of the spotlight. Of course, if it’s their choice to be in the public eye and they don’t mind press about themselves, it’s ok.
I hope Kim’s wedding is as successful as Khloe’s to Lamar. They (Khloe-Lamar) seem like such a down-to-earth couple. I have no opinion of Kris Humphries yet… but am I the only one who thinks he kinda looks like the wearwolf guy, Taylor Lautner, from Twilight?
