Kim Kardashian's basketball beau, Kris Humphries, will be joining her and her family on the sixth season of the reality-TV staple "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
Producers had teased the beginning of their relationship on spinoff show "Kourtney and Kim Take New York." Now her budding romance with the New Jersey Nets forward -- or, as Kim calls him, "the one" -- will be featured in the next 12 episodes of "Kardashians," E! announced.
Sounds serious. The two were recently rumored to be scoping out engagement rings by Neil Lane at a Kay Jewelers in New York. Kimmie, however, strikes us as a Harry Winston kind of girl ...
Sisters Khloé Kardashian (aka Mrs. Lamar Odom) and Kourtney Kardashian said they're hesitant to invest their emotions in their sister's new relationship. (Do the names Damon Thomas, Ray J and Reggie Bush ring a bell?) Humphries will join the reality dynasty, procreated by late and famed O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Kardashian, on a family vacation to the tropics to celebrate mom Kris and stepdad Bruce Jenner's 20th wedding anniversary.
The show will lead into the launch of the new reality series "Ice Loves Coco," which follows the love life of couple Ice-T and his wife, Coco. Watch the teaser for that gem.
The new season of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" kicks off June 12 with Kourtney at odds with mother and manager Kris for turning their family into a business rather than remaining emotionally connected. Perhaps rightfully so? Kim earned an estimated $6 million last year under her mother's reign. Kourtney and Khloé made $2.5 million each.
Kourtney, who moves into a new home with baby daddy Scott Disick, also battles with her boyfriend about giving her mother a key to their new abode, and Kris isn't happy about her daughter wanting to have a second child out of wedlock.
Meanwhile, Khloé, who will have just ended her newlywed spinoff "Khloe and Lamar" with her Lakers hubbie, is shown managing her household with her sisters in addition to their DASH boutiques in Los Angeles, Miami and New York.
The rest of the brood, which includes brother Rob Kardashian, probably just sits there and looks pretty, though E! promises that he'll be bridging the gap between him and Disick since their falling out at his sister's scandalous birthday party. Younger sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner work their way back into their sisters' spotlight. Kim takes Kendall, an aspiring model, back to New York with her to help jumpstart her career, but little K is overwhelmed by her older sister's vigilant work ethic.
Drama, drama, drama.
Will you be tuning in?
