Now that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are through with their much-hyped, over-the-top Italian extravaganza, it’s sister Kourtney’s turn to get married. Kourtney, who is reportedly pregnant with the couple’s third child, has said before that she has no interest in tying the knot, but it seems like the next Kardashian wedding isn’t about love—it’s all about the ratings.
Momager Kris Jenner, who stayed out of planning the Kimye nuptials for the most part, has taken over as wedding planner for Kourtney, 35, and her beau, Scott Disick, 31, and she’s got more on her mind than choosing appetizers or picking a DJ.
“Kris is hoping Kourt’s wedding will save their show,” says a source, who says the matriarch will pull out all the stops to boost the ratings of KUWTK. “She’s throwing around crazy ideas like a circus theme with tigers and trapeze artists. Kris thinks a fall wedding—televised on E!—would be perfect for the new season.
Kris, 58, also has a few stunts up her sleeve to crank up the drama. A wild A-list bachelor party would draw viewers, but she is also willing to try any sort of manipulation: “She has suggested that after they announce the wedding date, Kourtney should walk out on Scott. Then he’ll have to win her back in time for the wedding.”
