The world (including me) has gone CRAZY ever since Kanye West put every man [and The Bachelor Producer] to absolute shame with his incredible and elaborate proposal to Kim Kardashian at San Francisco Giant’s AT&T Park with the help of a 50-piece orchestra, 15 carat flawless Lorraine Schwartz ring, fireworks and a jumbotron.
A video was leaked by one of their friends who was present at the proposal (even though they all signed non-disclosure agreements….so obviously Kanye is HEATED).
But NOW one of their friends who witnessed the elaborate surprise has opened up with all the details.
And this “friend” is none other than Joe Francis….and yes….as in “Girls Gone Wild” Joe Francis. (He’s been a long-time friend of the Kardashian family…naturally…)
Francis revealed the details of the evening with the Huffington Post just one day later.
“It was like a movie,” he said. “Kanye West has outdone every man.”
Yeah no kidding….
Here are the unbelievable, over-the-top, as told by Joe Francis:
“It was like a movie. Kanye West has outdone every man. It was a total surprise to everyone there — we thought it was a surprise birthday party for Kim and we were sworn to secrecy. No one knew about the proposal except for Kris [Jenner]; Kourtney didn’t know, Khloe didn’t know, Kim certainly didn’t know. We were just told to get on planes to San Francisco.
We all hid in the dugout, 20 people in one, 20 people in the other. The dugouts were catered so we were partying in there just waiting for them to arrive. They were originally supposed to come in via helicopter, but they ended up arriving in a car. All of the stadium was dark and we were hiding in the dugout. Kim was blindfolded and they played crowd noise over the speakers — you would have thought there were 100,000 people there! Then she took off the blindfold, the orchestra started playing, fireworks started going off and Kanye dropped to one knee and proposed. Everyone gasped — men were crying. She said “yes,” and then just boom! All the lights in the stadium came on at the same time and Kris told everyone, “Ok, run!” and we ran out to the field. Kim had no idea we were there and by the time we got to center field I think she was shocked.
They brought all of the catering out and we had this impromptu party on center field. Her friends and family were there, [Zynga founder] Mark Pincus was there, the Uber founder was there, the YouTube founder was there. It was unbelievable. Kanye completely outdid himself.”
Ugh….thanks a lot Kanye for making me and my fellow women’s expectations of romanticalllllness even more unrealistic. Your move, Bachelor producers….
