Kris Humphries Was NOT Kim Kardashian’s First Draft Pick

While Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are battling rumors of an unhappy union, one more story is being thrown into the mix about the staged life of a Kardashian. Sources tell Wet Paint that E! producers reached out to New York Knicks star Danilo Gallinari last fall to see if the Italian was interested in dating Kim AND starring on a reality show.  Both parties were looking for a New York-based athlete for Kim to date during Kourtney & Kim Take New York.

The 23-year-old allegedly told the producers that while he’d love to meet Kim, he had no interest being on a reality show, nor did he want to date the famous celebutante.  Gallinari was traded for the Denver Nuggets, and is currently playing basketball in Milan, Italy during the NBA lockout.  The one that got away!
