The jury is still out on the long-term success of Kim Kardashian‘s marriage to NBA player Kris Humpheries, but their nuptials got off to an incredible start – and that was before their honeymoon! Kardashian, of course, turned her wedding into a two-night E! special, “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” – you had know her wedding night would be spread over two nights – and the occasion set a ratings record for the network. According to reports, nearly 10 million people watched (4.4 million on Sunday, 4 million on Monday), almost record number for the celebrity obsessed network. (Per the LA Times, the most-watched show in the network’s history is last year’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” season finale.) Although the actual ceremony was an exclusive, by invitation-only event that took place at a private mansion in Montecito, CA and included guests Serena Williams, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough, Mark Ballas and Cheryl Burke, Lindsay and Dina Lohan and Eva Longoria, among others, the bride made sure everyone else knew they were invited to the October 9 and 10 broadcasts. “Everyone tune into E NOW East Coast!!!! My fairytale wedding!” she tweeted on Monday night. A few hours later, she tweeted the other half of the country. “West Coast!!!! Ready??? My Fairytale Wedding is on now on the E channel.” On Tuesday afternoon, she was on her way to Dubai. “Off to Dubai now thanks to Emirates Hospitality…Serious Sex & The City swag going on, on this airplane to Dubai! The best plane I’ve ever been on!!! Dubai are u ready???” Jealous?
