It’s been announced that middle Kardashian sister Kim is now engaged to beau Kris Humphries of New Jersey Nets fame. The couple has been dating for a whopping six months (which actually is whopping in comparison to sister Khloe’s nine-day wedding plans) and Humphries surprised Kim with a 20.5-karat ring. Pretty standard, right?
I know nothing should surprise me since all Hollywood engagements seem inexplicably extravagant, but I’ve had frozen meat for longer than they’ve been dating, and I’ve got body parts smaller than that rock! As an avid E!-enthusiast (Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloe & Lamar), Kim is portrayed as the one who is always looking for a man and comparing herself to her coupled-up sisters. I don’t doubt that Kim and Humphries are in love (though it bothers me that his name is spelled the same as her mother’s…), but it just seems a little premature and rushed.
Eonline reported some of Kim’s family’s reactions to the engagement, which were all super-excited to put it mildly. Sister Khloe tweeted, “”Kimmie I love you so much!!!! I would do anything in the world for you!!! Seeing you this happy in your life makes me smile daily! You deserve this happiness! Get excited baby!!!!! We r about2 celebrate!! Kris welcome 2the fam! Just so u know, u married all of us!”
The sentiment of seeing Kim happier than ever is definitely something I can get behind, as is the notion that Kris just married into the whole Kardashian clan (ummm, good luck!). I do sincerely wish them a lifetime of happiness, and can’t wait to see a close-up image of her ring. Read more on [Eonline.com], and tell us how soon is too soon to be engaged below:

GIRL TALK TIME: What do you think of Kim Kardashian’s engagement? How soon is too soon to be engaged? What do you think of how big her ring is? We love us some bling (especially JLO’s Glitterati package) but we can’t even imagine a rock that large!
