The Kardashians are execs at throwing wedding ceremony specials (even when sustaining mentioned marriages hasn’t labored out fairly as nicely), so Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker had some enormous footwear to fill. Proving they had been conscious of the stakes, Travis proudly spoke about marrying in a lush Italian village. “After we discuss our wedding ceremony or we discuss our wedding ceremony to our youngsters, we’re not going to be like, ‘Oh, we simply obtained married in Los Angeles or, ‘We simply obtained married within the desert, or San Francisco or Utah. It needed to be like Italy.” So, why did theirs fall flat?
For one, a single 74-minute episode wasn’t lengthy sufficient to efficiently doc one wedding ceremony, a lot much less three. But they crammed footage from three ceremonies, which befell weeks aside, into one episode together with household commentary and countless, pointless confessionals. If it felt rushed, it is as a result of it was. Even Khloé Kardashian’s wedding ceremony to Lamar Odom (which was the household’s first unofficial particular) managed to pack in her race to throw a lavish wedding ceremony in 9 days, and naturally the entire stress and household drama that got here with it into its lone episode of “KUWTK.” After all, Kim Kardashian one-upped KoKo when she married Kris Humphries after which Kanye West, as each weddings boasted multi-episode arcs, protecting the highs and lows of throwing a celeb wedding ceremony. Kim and Khloé’s wedding ceremony specials had been occasions. Kourtney’s felt like a footnote.
