Ka-Ching! Kim Kardashian's engagement ring sells for HOW MUCH?

By MAMAMIA TEAM

1. Kim Kardashian’s engagement ring sells at auction.

You can be forgiven for forgetting Kim Kardashian’s blink-and-you-miss-it marriage to Kris Humphries. The pair were married for just 72 days before they broke it off on 31 October 2011.

Now nearly two years later NBA basketball player Kris Humphries, who received the ring in the marriage dissolution, has sold the 20-carat sparkler at a Christie’s auction in New York.

An anonymous buyer snapped up the second-hand bling for US$620,000.

With Christie’s additional premium the new owner will pay a total of US$749,000 for the ring, which is a steal considering the ring’s initial reported worth (at the time of their engagemen) was US$2 million.

Us Weekly reports that it was Kardashian, not Humphries,who initially paid for the ring herself, and that reports it was worth $2 million were inflated.

“Kim has been waiting for the day he would auction it,” a source told Us Weekly in September. “Everyone always asked what Kim did with the ring — she silently gave it back over a year ago. And Kris waited until the divorce was final to sell it.”

According to Forbes a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a (yet to be named) charity.

3. Worthington shares first snap of Bingle on Instagram.

Sam Worthington and Lara Bingle have been making no secret of their new relationship around Sydney, and now the Avatar actor has uploaded a photo of the pair on social media.

The 37 year-old posted this snap on his Instagram account with the simple caption “Hoi @mslbingle”.

5. Which Victoria Secret Angel will strap $10 million to her cleavage?

Apparently there is such a thing as a “Fantasy Bra,” and there has been every year since the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Runway ever existed.

So clearly it’s a time honoured tradition that we should all know about.

Gisele Bündchen’s worn it, Heidi Klum’s had a crack and so has Alessandra Ambrósio. Can you tell it’s a huge honour to be bestowed?

Contrary to popular belief, the Fantasy Bra is not made of beige elasticated fabric but thousands of precious jewels (close though). This year’s will be the most expensive ever made, coming in at a cool $10 million. So no, you probably can’t pick it up at your local Bras ‘N’ Things.

This year it will be the supermodel with the hard to pronounce surname Candice Swanepoel who will have the honour of wearing 4,200 precious jewels strapped to her cleavage on national TV.

“I’ve never worn anything this pricey, and we have to put gloves on when we put it on,” Swanepoel shares. “It’s kind of a big ordeal. The bra comes with two bodyguards and we have to handle it with a lot of care!”

9. Rebel Wilson wears a chicken costume on late night tv, because why not?

Rebel Wilson has appeared on US late night talk show, Conan, dressed as a chicken because sure why not?

The Super Fun Night star and Aussie chick (see what I did there?) said she did it because she was super excited about celebrating Halloween in the US this year.

“Usually I dress sultry for talk shows, but today I thought I’d dress poultry,” Wilson said. “This is actually my Halloween outfit for this year,” Wilson said. “I’m a hot chick.”

11. Kym Valentine goes nuts on Twitter.

Former Ramsey Street star Kym Valentine is reportedly suing the show’s producers for alleged sex and disability discrimination. She is seeking compensation for lost wages and Fairfax reported she is demanding that she be rehired in the role of Libby. And now she’s taken to Twitter to garner support from her fans.

Fairfax earlier reported that Valentine, who played Libby Kennedy on Neighbours between 2004 and 2011, suffered a number of health problems during her time on the show, including a collapsed lung while travelling and a blood clot. She is also believed to have been sufferering from a depressive illness. She took time off for illness at different stages, with Michala Banas even having to take over the role of Libby for a short stint in 2009.

Her contract expired in 2011 and she hasn’t returned to the show since.
