Kim Kardashian gave Kanye West the brush off for one night in favor of another man. Kim said yes to a marine who asked her out to the Marine Corps ball. Sgt. Martin Gardner was the lucky guy who went to the ball with Kim on his arm.
As part of the planning committee for the event, he had his fingers into just about every aspect of the ball. The one thing he wanted most, however, was to get Kim to say yes. He sent her an invitation months ago. However, none of his buddies were informed about the possible surprise date. In fact, everyone was kept in the dark until everything finally got settled.
Looking sharp in his dress blues, Gardner was proud of his date. Maybe that had something to do with the slinky red number she was wearing. Maybe it was her celebrity. Either way, the couple were the talk of the event.
Kim tweeted that she enjoyed her "date". "Just left the Marine Corps Ball," she said. "Thanks to all the marines I had an opportunity to meet tonight," she added. "Thank you for all that you do!"
It's been an interesting year for celebrities and their unexpected dates. Kim Kardashian isn't the first celeb to say "yes" to military men or women on their big nights. Hollywood should be commended for actually putting what they say into action and giving back to those individuals who put their lives on the line to defend this country. Thanks Kim!
