Because the Kardashian whore train to fame knows no speed limits, Kim Kardashian apparently wanted to marry a basketball star, ANY basketball star, to further her career and “enrich” her TV show, so she had E!’s team shop around for one. According to Wetpaint.com, they first approached Italian basketball player Danilo Gallinari (pictured above) who had the good sense to say no to a marriage of convenience and an ass that could easily blow him into smithereens with a mere fart if he ever dared shun a camera.
Wetpaint claim that E! Television staff contacted the New York Knicks to ask if hunky Italian basketball star Danilo Gallinari would be interested in dating Kim. “They asked if he would be interested in dating her and being on a reality show,” a source told the website.
According to the insider, both E! and Kim were interested in having her date a big New York athlete for the debut season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, which premiered in January 2011.
“Danilo said he would love to meet Kim but was not interested in dating her or being on a reality show,” revealed the insider, who added: “Even though E! explained it would be great for his career, Gallinari turned the offer down.”
