It’s already been reported that Kim Kardashian’s half-brother, Brody Jenner, turned down his invitation to the big wedding. And now, according to Celebuzz on May 22, Kim’s aunt, Karen Houghton, isn’t going either.
Karen Houghton is Momager Kris Jenner’s younger sister. Houghton is in the path of the southern California wildfires and doesn't want to leave.
"I'm afraid to leave -- the fire could go all over my crap. If your house was going to burn down would you go to Paris? Screw it -- I've been to two weddings of Kim," she tells Mail Online. "But I'm really happy for her and I do have a present for her.
“Six o’clock in the morning they called me yesterday and said, ‘Well, are you coming, are you coming?’ I said, ‘You know, I just don’t know with the fires.’”
Houghton said that the fires are the scariest thing she’s ever experienced. “Everyone was evacuated and my house is a mess from the fires.”
Houghton also claims that she’s not sure where the wedding will be. She claims even her own mother, Mary Jo Shannon, doesn't know where the ceremony is being held. Mary Jo Shannon, Kim’s grandmother, is in Paris celebrating with her granddaughter.
“Kanye’s calling the people a half hour before and saying, ‘Here’s where it is.’ I can’t even tell you where it is.” Instead of the huge affair it was thought this wedding would be, Kim and Kanye decided to keep it to close family and friends with no more than 100 invitations going out.
Despite the fact that she’s not going, does Aunt Karen have an opinion on the staying power of this marriage? Yes, she does. “I think this one’s going to work. I think it’s going to be more than 72 days. I think it’s going to work. I mean look at Nori, how adorable. I just love them and hope they’re happy.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are scheduled to tie the knot on Saturday, May 24, most probably at Fort Belvedere in Florence, Italy.
