Could the proposal of the year actually have been a fake? Noooo Kanye, please don’t kill my dreams! The production company told HollywoodLife.com the truth — see what it is below!
We all know that reality TV should really be called “reality” TV (note quotation marks); with so many staged scenes being created by producers to add more drama (thank you stars of The Hills for making this oh-so very clear), but could Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s already infamous stadium proposal actually be a total sham? Find out why fans are fuming over the allegedly “fake” proposal below!
Kanye West’s Proposal To Kim Kardashian — Faked For TV?
Some laughed, some cried, and some even laugh-cried on Oct. 21, when YouTube was taken over by videos of Kanye’s birthday surprise/proposal to his baby mama Kim, complete with a 50-piece orchestra, a jumbotron, and of course, a super serious 15-carat rock by Lorraine Schwartz.
But if Kim, 33, was wearing this very recognizable piece of bling prior to Kanye’s proposal — as suggested by the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians — then was the engagement actually entirely staged for the show? TEARS!!!!
RadarOnline has pointed out that in the “A Surprise Engagement: Part 1” episode of KUWTK, which supposedly takes place BEFORE the now famous stadium bash, there are actually multiple shots of Kim wearing her engagement ring before the proposal. How could she possibly be wearing the ring before saying “yes” to 36-year-old Kanye?!
As Shakespeare said, “There’s the rub.”
So, real or not real? That is the question.
Was Kanye West’s Proposal A Sham?
There are two possible scenarios in this troubling situation:
A) Kim knew about the proposal before it actually happened (Hashtag: Shocker. Hasthag: Thumbs down, Kimye.)
B) Editors of KUWTK pieced together scenes in an out-of-sequence way, not paying attention to the fact that Kim was already wearing her ring.
Both scenarios are a reminder that reality TV is far from real, I’ll be blindly keeping my faith in romance and King Kanye alive by going with “B” all the way.
Luckily, a Bunim/Murray Productions spokesperson confirmed option B to HollywoodLife.com:
“The footage of Kim folding baby clothes, while wearing her engagement ring, although filmed after the proposal, was a better fit for the first episode of the two-part engagement special because we wanted part two to focus on the surprise that was to come.”
How about you HollywoodLifers? What are your thoughts on this 15-carat fiasco?
