Kim Kardashian’s Aunt Declines Wedding Invite: “I’ve Been to Two” Already
Kim Kardashian’s aunt, Karen Houghton, has also declined to attend the reality star’s nuptials with Kanye West. According to the 55-year-old, she won’t be flying to Paris to join her older sister Kris Jenner for the ceremony because she’s afraid of the wildfires spreading across southern California.
“I’m afraid to leave — the fire could go all over my crap. If your house was going to burn down would you go to Paris? Screw it — I’ve been to two weddings of Kim,” she tells Mail Online. “But I’m really happy for her and I do have a present for her.”
Houghton, who insists that she’s “not materialistic,” explains, “‘Six o’clock in the morning they called me yesterday and said, ‘Well are you coming, are you coming?’ I said, ‘You know, I just don’t know with the fires.'”
“It was absolutely the scariest thing I have ever been through. Everyone was evacuated and my house is a mess from the fires.”

The part-time nurse and care worker also says that the details of the weddings are still hazy. According to Houghton, even her own mother, Mary Jo Shannon, doesn’t even know where the ceremony is held despite the fact that she is currently in Paris celebrating with her granddaughter.
“Kanye’s calling the people a half hour before and saying, ‘Here’s where it is.’ I can’t even tell you where it is,” Houghton says.
Though she has witnessed Kardashian going through two divorces, the famous aunt insists that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s marriage to West will be a long one.
“I think this one’s going to work. I think it’s going to be more then 72 days,” she says. “I think it’s going to work, I mean look at Nori, how adorable. I just love them and hope they’re happy.”
