"Honest concern for others is the key factor in improving our day to day lives. When you are warm-hearted, there is no room for anger, jealousy or insecurity. A calm mind and self-confidence are the basis for happy and peaceful relations with each other. Healthy, happy families and a healthy peaceful nation are dependent on warm-heartedness." Dalai Lama
.....I'm not the biggest Kim fan around, but I do admire her tenacity.

I don't see throwing your mother out of your wedding for anything but the most egregious violation. Wanting to go to the bathroom in your house? so what. I think it was very weird that she wasn't allowed to anyway.
Having her escorted out because she went in anyway seems a most extreme, irrational and vindictive thing. I really don't understand.
Kim says the wedding was perfect. I would think that if you have to ask your mother to leave your wedding, it would be very painful, and would ruin the day. Even if your mother is selfish and childish-- and even if your mother wants attention. Whatever.
Whether Kim's mother happened to wake up their child, the supposed final straw, seems to me not quite the point. If the child by chance hadn't woken up, she wouldn't have been asked to leave, I guess.
I actually found myself appalled at the whole affair-- Marie Antoinette gown, and all. I mostly hope she really does love Kroy.
I think the whole Mom/bathroom stuff was faux reality. Like 70% made up to "bring the drama".
Kim's dance with her Dad was creepy. He just seemed to be all over her.
Kroy touched my heart during the ceremony. He is quite the catch.

It's amazing Kim turned out the way she did because it's a whole level up from her parents....still way down there, but not them.
Karen wants all the attention and can't get used to the fact that she's old and Kim is the star now....also probably why she had to act out and bring attention to herself.
And yes, she's probably cranky all the time because she's hungry.
I was so creeped out by him in this episode. Inappropriate, and to me quite telling. Also possibly why her mom feels she is in competition with her daughter.
To me, a $5,000 port-a-potty is not a "port-a-potty". There should be another name for it, because a port-a-potty is a nasty thing you find at construction sites and medieval fairs. She and her sister cooked up a scheme to get a little camera time -although it backfired on the sister because I'm still not sure which sister it was! - and acted out. I agree, it was more than just disobeying the rules about the bathroom, there was more going on.
Loved that Kroy surprised the daughters - and maybe Kim too - with rings as well, solidifying them all as a family.

As far as I can tell, the purpose of everyone in her life is defined by how they can serve her. Near as I can tell, many have had enough.
No, a $5,000 port-a-potty AIN'T no "port-a-potty", and there SHOULD be another name for it.
Regarding restricting access into the house . . .
Frankly, I don't blame Kim for that.
1. Kim's mother and father, as far as I remember, did not pay one dime for anything major or pivotal --- or anything at all --- that had to do with that wedding. Matter of fact, Kim even paid for her mother's dress, shoes, etc., and I don't recall Karen at any point denying that Kim did that. Far as I'm concerned, if YOU'RE the one putting up the ducats for the shindig, then YOU have the right to call the shots.
2. As far as I recall seeing, the wedding was not held at a venue that had any connection to her parents, at all. Rented or not, it was KIM'S HOUSE.
3. Except for people Kim personally vetted with her security people as being able to have access to the interior of the house during the ceremony and the festivities afterward, I wouldn't allow members of my personal family to run in and out of the house, either, had it been me. Frankly, if you bend/break the rules for one person or a few persons, then you've got to do it for all. Plus, you may allow certain people outside of those you've got helping you to have access, if you choose to, but what about anybody they'll possibly bring WITH them (in this case, to brag, show off, or whatever, more than likely)? Kroy not allowing HIS personal family to have access to the main house, either, during and after the ceremony, spoke volumes to me as regards being fair clear across the board. Also, even though the wedding was being held at their house, this IS their personal space, and, unintentionally or not, things CAN happen.
Example: Back in the Dark Ages in my neck of the woods, house parties were common. They were EXACTLY what the name implies. One of us would throw a party, there'd be food, drinks (non-alcoholic if we were teens and if somebody sneaking in a bottle or two of White Lightning or whatever wasn't discovered and the bottle(s) confiscated), music, dancing, etc. If we were teens, there'd be parents, grands, etc., there, as the on-site Law. Usually, the parties would be held in someone's basement. And of course you usually had to go through the house to get to the basement. And you had to come upstairs to use the bathroom, because a lot of these houses didn't have bathrooms installed in the basement. It didn't happen often, but there WERE times, after a house party, where, during the morning-after review and clean-up, it was discovered that personal items in someone's home had been broken, stolen, etc. Even if it was an adult house party, you still ran the risk of things being broken, going missing, people using your bed to hit it and get it with their SO or whoever, people puking all over the place, and so on.
If I was in Kim's shoes, no way would I have allowed anybody to roam through my house to use the bathroom, either. ESPECIALLY after I'd paid for 5K-a-pop "port-a-potties"! ESPECIALLY not with my baby --- who hadn't crashed all day, due to all the activity and whatnot going on around him --- sleeping upstairs.
4. Sure, I said earlier that I thought Kim was at least a little guilty of the "You Need to Wait on Me Hand and Foot!" syndrome. Or, maybe, a LOT. But then again, has anyone ever seen "Bridezillas"? Most of those harpies on that show put Kim to shame in that regard. So, OK, let's burn Kim at the stake, why don't we?
And yep, I agree that Kim's mother and aunt Leslie were angling for some camera time. And it DID blow up in their faces and backfire when they acted like a couple of street-corner bitches, got loud, threatened the security guy (who was doing what he'd been told and was paid to do), yelled about bringing down the house, stormed upstairs, woke the baby, cursed Kroy, bad-mouthed the Ks, and so on. Then, they want to get their feelings hurt and cry on the OTHER aunt's shoulder (Gail) and try to defend themselves and blame the Ks for their behavior and going off like they did?
Frankly, I don't blame Kim.
My mother (and anybody else) would've been out of there if she'd (they'd) acted a fool like that, too.
