In a move that will surprise absolutely no one, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian plan to televise their wedding on their upcoming E! reality series. Or at least that's what Chyna heavily hinted at during an interview with Entertainment Tonight at Daily Mail's Seriously Popular yacht party in Cannes. The mom-to-be said,
We haven't started planning [the wedding] yet. We're doing one thing at a time... We are thinking about having a wedding special, so stay tuned for that!
To be honest, only half of that statement surprises me, and I'm talking about the part that they haven't planned it yet. These two lovebirds have jumped from one major milestone to the next without barely taking a break to catch their breath. They were dating, then engaged, then pregnant — all within a matter of months. So at least I'm glad they're focusing on the baby before diving into full-blown wedding mode. However, it does not shock me in the least bit that they plan to televise their wedding. After all, Chyna is becoming a Kardashian (reportedly trademarking her name and all) and that's what the famous family does: share all of their major life events with their audience in two-part TV specials.
While I'm not surprised that ChyRo is planning to share their wedding with viewers, I am hesitant to condone the idea. Here's a round-up of reasons that Chyna and Kardashian should think twice before televising their big day.
The Odds Are Not In Their Favor
Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Need I say more? Two Kardashian siblings had weddings on TV and both of those nuptials ended in divorce. I'm not saying any televised wedding is bound to lead to a breakup, but if I were them, I wouldn't like those odds.
It Takes Away From Their Privacy
Isn't a wedding supposed to be an intimate ceremony with friends and family? Sure, some throw elaborate celebrations, but usually it's at least with people they know. If they aired their wedding on TV, they'd be letting the whole world in on their special moment, which also invites room for criticism and commentary on something that's supposed to be joyful.
This Doesn't Help Those Attention Rumors
Ever since these two began dating, there were rumors that it was all a scheme for attention. The same notion surfaced when Chyna reportedly trademarked the Kardashian last name, even before getting married. The fact that they're airing their wedding on TV ties into the idea that they are profiting off of their relationship. Not that they should base their life decisions off other people's assumptions, but why feed into that?
There's Bound To Be Drama
Anytime a Kardashian TV special airs, it seems like they up the drama to help boost ratings. Considering the rocky history between Chyna and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner siblings, that would be bound to be featured on the show. I can't comprehend why they'd want to factor that into an otherwise special day.
While I think Kardashian and Chyna should proceed with caution before signing off on any wedding special contracts, I can't deny that I'll totally tune in if they do film it. I just don't think it's the smartest decision. But hey, if they're happy, that's all that matters.
