Kim Kardashian Wedding Surprises One TV Host Despite Media Blitz (Video)
The daytime personality may not have known about the nuptials, but says he would still welcome the E! reality star on his talk show.
E! Reality star Kim Kardashian captured the attention of Hollywood over the weekend as she walked down the aisle to wed NBA star Kris Humphries. The highly anticipated celebration was seemingly on the radar of every media outlet, whether they wanted it there or not.
Somehow, one television personality remained blissfully unaware of the surrounding hoopla as he dined at Modeo in West Hollywood on Sunday.
The paparazzi caught up with Regis Philbin outside the restaurant and asked about, what else, the Kardashian wedding.
“I didn’t see it… did that happen today?” Philbin asked the photogs before being informed that the event was on Saturday. “I wish them good luck, you know. They look like a very handsome couple,” he continued.
As noted by E! Online, Philbin will turn 80 on Aug. 25 and was having an early celebration of his own on Sunday. He also added enthusiastically that “Of course!” he’d like to have the newly minted Mrs. Humphries on his show.
An invitation might not be a bad idea, as “Kardashian” has become clearly synonymous with “ratings.” E! will broadcast the wedding a two part special titled Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event on Oct. 9 and 10.
