At this point, it's common knowledge that Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries was a reality show stunt—but it turns out that Kardashian even scripted that magical moment when Humphries popped the question. Humphries has told friends and family that Kardashian actually planned "how, where, and when" the proposal would happen, one source tells Radar, noting that the whole thing was "absolutely no surprise to her." Of course, it just happened to be caught on camera and aired on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Even the time of day was selected by Kardashian because midday "would create better lighting to capture the moment."

Also staged: The dramatic mother-daughter chat between Kardashian and Kris Jenner in a recent episode of Kourtney & Kim take New York (watch at left). Supposedly, the talk—during which Kim revealed her doubts about her new marriage—took place in Dubai, but the scene was actually shot in LA, after Kardashian filed for divorce, and added to the episode. Humphries had tweeted mysteriously, "I can't wait for the truth to come out!" and Radar suggests this is what he meant. A source tells the New York Daily News that this sort of thing is, surprise surprise, "done all the time." Reality Tea has much more on the sham. (More Kim Kardashian stories.)
