LAURA'S LOVE LIFE ADVICE: Why Charming Your Man's Parents Like Kim Did Kris Humphries' Is A Smart Move!

Kim Kardashian is wise enough to know that if his parents don’t like her, there’s no way he’s ever going to be talking marriage

I never thought I’d be saying this, but that Kim Kardashian is one sly fox. Although the reality starlet seems to be unlucky in love, she’s definitely playing her cards right with new boyfriend Kris Humphries. Not only did she host the New Jersey Nets player’s 26th birthday dinner, but she even invited his parents – and then spent a solid hour talking to them. Kudos, Kim!

Although the 30-year-old brunette beauty did faux pas by taking her new man and his family to STK, the same place she brought ex-boyfriend Miles Austin for his birthday last year, all in all the night was a success. “She spent a good hour speaking with his parents directly,” an eyewitness said of the dinner. “They were talking about ‘get to know you’ type stuff like, ‘This is who I am and what I’m about.’”

You may or may not know this, but STK is one crowded, noisy place. 12 people attended Kris’ birthday meal, meaning, in order for Kim to get some face time with each of his friends, she would have had to flit around like a little social butterfly. His parents must have been aware of this, and appreciated how much effort she was making.

Seriously, what more do parents want than to make sure their kids are happy? Kim wasn’t being clingy or aggressive or annoying, and she organized the entire meal. Little things, like the fact that Kris and Kim shared their entree, don’t go unnoticed by mothers especially — and making a mama like you is hard work!

Best of all, the insider says that the E! star “didn’t seem nervous” although it was clearly her first time meeting his ‘rents. She was being an adult and saying, ‘I’m dating your son, I’m going to try my hardest, and you’re going to have to deal with it whether you like me or not.”

So DO channel Kim, because she’s got the right attitude and the right idea. His parents might have had some seriously awful preconceived notions about her, given how much she’s in the media for all of her respective men, but she charmed them in the end. You’ve got an advantage in that YOUR man’s parents are going to know next to nothing about you (do you actually trust a guy to give his family any information? That was a rhetorical question, by the way), so use it by making yourself as endearing as possible.

Remember, it’s all about the little things (re: K & K splitting their meal). Actions always speak louder than words.

Your advice is comical. Some media outlets are making a big deal out of the fact that Kim had dinner with his parents. Kim has a sex tape and is talentless and goes from man to man. What parents want their son with someone like that to marry? Kim has no advantage here, she is still making the same mistakes. Kris is a 26 year old professional athlete. Kim’s last two boyfriends where 26 year old athletes. What makes anyone believe it will be different with this new athlete? Oh and btw, Kris Humphries is black. I was reading where someone commented on his race. Kris’ father is black.

‘I’m dating your son, I’m going to try my hardest, and you’re going to have to deal with it whether you like me or not.” Really Hollywoodlife? You know she said this exact quote. Why do you guys lie so much?

Seriously, what has Kim done to make herself a star? Nothing, there for she isn’t one. I will be glad when the magazines decide to stop posting pics of her. I though her bashing the teen mom show was tasteless. It may not be a great show but what kind of show does she play on ? I mean really, drinking your own sisters breast milk is cool ? SICKO!
