    Read more: Nets star Kris Humphries gives Kim Kardashian $2 million engagement ring - NYPOST.com

    This kind of gross opulence annoys the crap out of me. I understand that people can spend their millions on whatever they damn please, but I better not hear one word out of these celebutards about "social justice". $2M can feed a lot of homeless people.

    Not only that, but I guess diamonds come at a terrible cost in human life.

    Now I got my info from "Blood Diamond" but I'm going to assume that it has at least some truth to it about the diamond market.

    Still,big sparklies are pretty cool. And I don't think I've ever heard Kim K. go on about social evils or social responsibility except in the most vapid way, lol...

    The Kardashian girls have jobs. They are fashion stylists and designers; they own a chain of stores. They had the stores before they had the TV show. They worked from the time they were 13 years old. It is a huge misconception that the girls don’t work. They work 25 hours a day.


    Kim:
    "My dad was a great attorney and businessman. He instilled a strong work ethic in all of us. If we wanted our allowance, we had to work. For Christmas presents, he’d give us gift certificates for a 'one-hour conversation about life with Dad.'"

    Not all diamonds are 'blood diamonds'. In fact, these days it's quite hard to sell 'blood diamonds' because of the international regulations governing the industry. So we cannot assume that this is an issue.

    To me, it's his money so he's entitled to spend it as he so chooses. Having said that, I would personally be uncomfortable with receiving a piece of jewelry that cost that much. I'd constantly wonder how many lives I could save with that rock.

    No. I truly am a decent human being. And you truly are an idiot. Them's the breaks.

    You are aware that Blood diamonds are not legally sold anymore? That the Diamond Industry barred them?

    Whoever paid for that ring got ripped off.

    We need to instill thrift and industry into the next generation. The media praising these 2 million dollar rings isn't doing that. So it's left to us.

    Hey! at least he's putting money back into the economy.

    We ought to be encouraging theextremely well heeled to spend in America.

    Sadly there aren't enough of them spending nearly enough to offset the pernicious effects on our economy of a society which has systematically been bankrupting its middle class for the last four decades.
