Oh God, I’m not trying to make Kris Humphries “happen,” am I? Last week I showed you guys that interview he did with Life & Style and I told you that I “kind of like” him, which is true, and the week before that, I told you guys about the divorce battle between Kris and Kim, and I defended him. Am I a Humphries sympathizer? Do I think he’s a good person?
Actually, I think I might. Especially thanks to this story from TMZ:
Being with Kris Humprhies may not be Kim Kardashian’s wish anymore, but it is for a 16-year-old cancer patient in upstate NY … and the NBA star is making it come true, TMZ has learned.
Friends of Kaely Kwitek started a Twitter account called @Kris4Kaely in an effort to get the attention of Kaely’s favorite basketball player. Kwitek has stage 4 anaplastic large-cell lymphoma and her friends were hoping to wrangle Kris for a benefit for Kaely in May.
Their persistence paid off and Kris noticed. After trading a few emails, Kris and Kaely decided on April 23 for her to come down and catch a Nets game as Kris’ guest. He’ll handle all expenses for Kaely and her family and even meet up with her after the game.
Kris tells TMZ, “I’m truly honored that someone with much larger things on their plate feels that my involvement in their cause is important. Not many of us can be as strong as she has been. I hope that many more will join me and support Team Kaely.”
Call me naive, but I can’t see a truly bad person doing something like this. Kris gets another pass in my book.
Oh, and here’s something I like to think about that this story reminded me of: isn’t it weird how pretty much every celebrity is someone’s favorite celebrity? Think about it. Somebody’s absolute dream guy is Steve Buscemi (which is kind of fair). Someone’s life would be positively made if they could just meet Courtenay Semel (remember her?). Isn’t that wild?
It’s the little things, you guys.
