Kim Set To Drop "Kardashian" For "Mrs. Humphries"

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian shows her traditional side by vowing to take Kris Humphries' last name once hitched.

Tidbits of info about the upcoming Kardashian-Humpries nuptials are starting to fly fast and furious. Supposedly it was to be a shotgun wedding. (It's not, according to E!Online.) The rumor mill also has the lovebirds slated to walk down the aisle in late July or early August. (Could be true—after all, the pair might want to get the celebration in under the wire before NBA basketball season kicks off.) And here's the latest: Kim is supposedly taking Kris' last name of Humphries.

One person who's not so thrilled about this development? Momager Kris Jenner.

"I don’t think she should take his name and be Kim Humphries," Kris told Popeater (via TMZ). "She needs to be Kim Kardashian because she’s worked so hard to get where she is.”

It's not surprising that Mama Bear has dollar signs dancing in her head, since she's all about the bottom line. And it sounds like Kim will need all the moolah she can get for this affair, because according to sis Khloe, the wedding is going to rival Wills and Kate's royal to-do! Prince William & Kate Middleton Are Married!

"It's going to be royal wedding number two," she recently told E! News (via The Hollywood Gossip). "I could only imagine Kim having the hugest wedding."

One big difference: Kim won't be a duchess after they say "I do"—but it sounds like she will have a brand-new last name!
