Oh la la! Kim Kardashian revealed in a new interview that she and fiance Kanye West are planning an extravagant summer wedding in Paris. ‘It’s like our second home,’ the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star said of the City of Light during an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Jan. 23.
Even before Kanye West and Kim Kardashian visited the Palace of Versailles in France, rumors had been swirling that they were planning an over-the-top wedding at Marie Antoinette‘s former home. But Kim explained to late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel that while Versailles won’t be the spot where she and Kanye say their I dos, the couple are planning the perfect Parisian wedding! Tres chic!
Kim Kardashian: Kanye West & I Will Have Summer Wedding In Paris
When Jimmy asked Kim if she and Kanye were scouting the Palace of Versailles as a potential wedding venue, she didn’t waste any time clearing things up.
“Of course everyone thought we were picking that as our wedding place,” Kim said. “No. We were just taking a tour.”
But then she went on to reveal, “We will be getting married this summer, hopefully in Paris.” The crowd erupted into applause and Jimmy asked if Kim was sure.
“I think so, it’s like our second home,” she replied. “We spend so much time there, we have an apartment there.”
Jimmy then joked that if Kim was trying to keep her wedding plans a secret, she wasn’t doing a very good job of it!
“I’m not telling you where or the date, but I think it’s kind of obvious [that it will be in Paris],” Kim said, laughing.

Jimmy seemed almost as eager as we are to know all the details about Kimye’s wedding, including whether Kanye will “rap his vows.” (“I don’t think so, but I’ll ask him,” Kim replied with a laugh.)
Jimmy also asked Kim if she’s planning to take Kanye’s name when they get married, and she happily answered, “Yes,” adding that she will probably go by Kim Kardashian West. It certainly has a nice ring to it!
So will they have to change the name of the family reality show to Keeping Up with West & the Kardashians, Jimmy wondered. Now that doesn’t have a nice ring to it. Thankfully Kim laughed and said no.
So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Kim and Kanye get married in Paris? Let us know!
