Further proving their relationship began with a casting call instead of courtship, Radar Online reports that Kris Humphries wasn’t Kim Kardashian’s first choice for a husband.
And now comes a new report that Kris wasn’t Kim’s first choice to be her basketball beau. In fact, according to Wetpaint.com before the brunette beauty met her new husband, Kim was so eager to date a basketball player that E! were calling around teams to matchmake with NBA athletes, RadarOnline.com has learned. Wetpaint claim that E! Television staff contacted the New York Knicks to ask if hunky Italian basketball star Danilo Gallinari (this guy) would be interested in dating Kim. “They asked if he would be interested in dating her and being on a reality show,” a source told the website. According to the insider, both E! and Kim were interested in having her date a big New York athlete for the debut season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, which premiered in January 2011. “Danilo said he would love to meet Kim but was not interested in dating her or being on a reality show,” revealed the insider, who added: “Even though E! explained it would be great for his career, Gallinari turned the offer down.”
I’m inclined to believe that E! was behind this. Neither Kris Humphries nor Danilo Gallinari have enough melanin to get Kim Kardashian’s vagina to work on its own. In fairness to Kim, though, Gallinari’s rejection may have been due to a faulty translator. When he read “water sports” in the contract, he may have thought they were talking about polo.
