Surprise, surprise: Cameras are set to role when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West vow to love each other forever, or 72 days, or for however long her third marriage lasts, Radar Online reported.
The reality star and her rapper beau have said they want to get married in Paris this June. The wedding will air on the family reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” just like it did when she said “I do” to NBA player Kris Humphries. Unlike with the athlete, the family seems to like West, if that makes any difference.
Though the “surprise” of Kardashian’s wedding airing on television is sarcastic, it could be somewhat shocking for those who thought the ultra-private West wouldn’t want the public to view the sacred. But E!'s proposal changed his mind, Radar Online said. The entertainment network offered to foot the bill for the multimillion-dollar shindig if it would be able to air the wedding on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Who needs privacy when there’s millions of dollars to make, right Kanye?
“Kim has always wanted to be a June bride and she is finally going to get her wish,” a source told Radar Online. “Kim and Kanye have narrowed down the wedding location, which is being kept a secret at this point. It will be on the outskirts of Paris.”

The insider added: “Kim persuaded Kanye to let the cameras roll because E! will pick up most of the cost of the wedding and it’s a lot easier for a network to deal with logistics of a foreign wedding than if it were just the two of them planning it.”
The network will also provide extra security for the couple, making sure guests don’t have mobile phones and intrusive paparazzi aren’t able to take photos of the nuptials or ceremony, Radar Online wrote.
But E! won’t have control over everything. Kardashian and West will both play parts in the planning. "He knows what he wants, and I love that about him," Kardashian told Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday. "We're kind of taking different roles. He'll take care of the music, and I'll take care of the seating chart. We're making it really easy on each other."
One of the reported dreams certainly won’t be coming true. During one of the couple's various trips to France, the brunette bombshell, 33, shot a photo of Versailles at night and posted it to Instagram. "Versailles after dark," she captioned the pic.
Kimye reportedly were turned down when they asked to have their reception at Marie Antionette’s former palace of Versailles, but it didn’t dash their dreams to have a Parisian wedding. “The couple is looking for something grand, but something that can offer privacy and security,” the source said.
