If you’re of the opinion that the Humphries-Kardashian marriage was a sham, here’s some more fodder.E! and the Kardashians originally wanted New York Knicks star Danillo Gallinari to play the love-interest role that Kris Humphries eventually filled, according to the blog Wet Paint.

The blog was told by a source that an E! rep approached the 22-year-old Italian and asked him to date Kim on the season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York.

Danillo declined, Kim crossed the river and picked up Humphries in Jersey, and the rest is history.

Danillo didn’t end up much better.

He was shipped off to the Nuggets as part of the Carmelo Anthony trade, and is out of work due to the lockout.
