Yes, middle Kardashian sister Kim will wed NBA player Kris Humphries this Saturday, August 20 and a production crew from E! will film the joyous event for a four-hour (yes, four hours!) TV special airing October 9 and 10.
In honor of the blissful, camera-hungry couple, we're taking a look at famous reality TV weddings of the past, from the ill-fated variety (Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson) to the so-far-successful (Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo) and ranking those weddings from most magical to least stirring.
BEST: Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Kim will have to put on quite the show to outshine her younger sister Khloe's 2009 wedding to L.A. Lakers star Lamar Odom. Captured for an episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," the 250-plus wedding party boasted Ryan Seacrest, Kobe Bryant, Kelly Osbourne, and a surprise performance from Babyface. We're not saying that weddings require celebrities, but having one of R&B's smoothest voices croon "You Are So Beautiful" makes for epic romance. And we're pretty sure they hold the record for most post-vows kisses at the altar.
WORST: Rick Rockwell and Darva Conger from "Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?"
When a woman chooses a man purely based on money and a man chooses a woman purely based on looks and they proceed to get married over the course of a single two-hour TV special, you can't be all that surprised when the ensuing marriage is annulled two months later. It turned out Rick Rockwell wasn't exactly a "multi" millionaire (his net worth was $2 million) and had some skeletons in his closet to boot, so Darva Conger wasted no time in annulling her marriage to a perfect stranger.
BEST: Niecy Nash and Jay Tucker
She's not as famous as a Kardashian and her second husband is a regular old electrical engineer, but it's nice watching two people who aren't just famous for being famous tying the knot. With her hysterical comedic work on "Reno 911!" and a "Dancing With the Stars" stint under her belt, Nash is a pleasure to watch and her TLC-captured wedding was elegant, romantic (guest performance by Brandy!) and way funnier than a real-life wedding has any right to be (the looks she gave to her wedding planner were priceless). Plus: disco-wedding-shoe inspiration!
WORST: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt
A wedding so nice, they did it twice? Not exactly. Their first wedding wasn't caught on tape, but the drunken lead-up to their non-legal Mexican wedding was captured for a season finale of "The Hills." Their legal American wedding was filmed for posterity and was much classier, although honestly, that's not saying much. On the plus side, Speidi admitted they only filed for divorce last year to generate publicity. Now that's a healthy marriage!
