Did Kim shop for a basketball player husband? A new report on Wetpaint Entertainment says that E! approached a New York Knicks star to date her, before she met Kris!
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have been faced with multiple media reports that their two-month marriage is already on the rocks. Now, entertainment news site Wetpaint, has a source saying that a representative from E! the network which airs the Kardashian reality shows and wedding special, approached New York Knick, Danilo Gallinari, about dating Kim.

The source told Wetpaint that both E! and Kim were interested in having her date a New York City athlete for the first season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and naturally, the Knicks were their first choice.
The insider also claims that Gallinari, who was 22 at the time, was told that it would be a great career move for him to date Kim and that he would get tons of media exposure.
Gallinari apparently took a pass because he had no interest in dating Kim or becoming a reality TV star.
Meanwhile, it wasn’t too much time later that Kim was dating Kris Humphries of the New Jersey Nets. Hmm!
Kim has always said that she met Kris after going to a New Jersey Nets basketball game with a friend and that after Kris caught her eye, her friend set up a group dinner that they all could attend.
Now, two months after the couple’s fairytale wedding for which they may have made $18 million, multiple media reports say the marriage is in trouble.
But if it’s in trouble because the pair barely have any alone time together, they can at least count the cash they’ve earned from being together. Aside from the money that the wedding itself brought in from E! and other endorsements, Kim and Kris earned $90,000 from selling their honeymoon photos, $100,000 from photos of them dating and another $200,000 for attending Kim’s 31st birthday party at the Marquee night club in Las Vegas, according to In Touch magazine.
Hollywoodlife.com learned that a supposedly romantic dinner at STK restaurant in NYC on Oct. 18, the pair was actually being filmed for an episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York. Furthermore, between takes, the couple didn’t speak to each other or act in any way affectionate.
Just last night, Oct. 26th, Kim and Kris are at LA restaurant, Izaka-ya restaurant and emerged looking like strangers, according to body language expert, Dr. Lillian Glass, who believes “there’s no love” in their marriage.
Hmm! Is that because the marriage is a sham anyway?
We hope not!
