Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian’s Welcome to New York City Party

Capitale. August 31, 2011. By Bennett Marcus

You’ve done TV, fragrances, clothing, all kinds of things. Anything you’d still like to try? “I would say my biggest obsession is interior design. We’re doing a home collection for Sears, but I really love decorating, not just designing the home stuff.” —KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN


Did Hurricane Irene complicate your fashion week plans at all? “Yes! I got stuck in Miami. I play polo, so I went there for a weekend.” Are you good at polo? “I’m a Mongol, it’s natural to me. You know, Naeem Khan, Genghis Khan. I can ride a horse bareback.” —NAEEM KHAN


How did you decorate tonight for Kim and Kris? “I never use one feather when I can use thousands of feathers. I never serve one cocktail when I can serve many cocktails.” —COLIN COWIE



You’re giving Kim Kardashian one of your cookbooks? “You have to cook in order to keep a man.” —JOSH KILMER-PURCELL “I don’t think she has to.” —DR. BRENT RIDGE (Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images)


You’re working on a housewares line? “Yeah. It circles around the toaster oven cooking and recipes. But of course we’ll have jeweled aprons and the mitts and all that kind of stuff.” —SONJA MORGAN


I read you’re going to be in an Off Broadway play. Miss Abigail. I’m going to be onstage for like, twenty minutes. So I’m going give sex and dating advice. Who better than me? ” —RAMONA SINGER

Can Kate and Pippa Middleton really can make sheer hose happen again? “You know, if Kate and Pippa have brought sheer hose back, they can bring anything back. I do like sheer hose, though. It’s like makeup for your legs; they really just smooth your look out.” —PHILLIP BLOCH

Have you met the Kardashians before? “No. The funny thing is, even though we’re on reality TV, we don’t ever watch it. But we keep up with the Kardashians via the media.” —ALEX MCCORD “How can you miss them?” —SIMON VAN KEMPEN


What's it like traveling with Kim and Kris? “It’s overwhelming. When we came out of our hotel, there were so many flashes that I couldn’t even see. I knocked over five people getting to my car because it was blinding.” —JONATHAN CHEBAN
