Kim Kardashian Goes on a Date With a Marshal
Kim Kardashian attends the Marine Corps. Ball with Sgt. Martin Gardner in Greenville, N.C. on November 15, 2012. Kim wore a stunning Roland Mouret red dress and stayed for dinner before leaving solo and heading back to her hotel.
says the reality TV star was his “only choice” when it came to picking a date for the Nov. 15 event in Greenville, North Carolina.
“Kim was my only choice,” Gardner said. “I love her show. She always turns a negative into a positive, and I respect all that she’s done.”
The idea to bring Kardashian to the Ball was first concocted by Gardner, who says he contacted her publicist earlier this year on a whim.
“I needed to somehow prove to myself that anything is possible,” he said.
“I left on deployment in June for a humanitarian mission in Guatemala, and in September I got an email that Kim was going to come,” he added. “I couldn’t believe [she] showed up.”
Kardashian made a splash when she arrived to the 10th annual Ball in a hip-hugging red dress, and earned major point from Gardner for sticking around throughout the night. “She’s such a cool person,” he said of Kardashian. ”And despite what reports said, Kim was there the entire time — through the ceremony, guest speaker and dinner. And any Marine who asked for a photo, she did it.”
At the event, Gardner said the conversation he had with Kardashian was effortless
“We talked about everything from our personal lives to our professional lives,” he said. “Talking with her was like talking to one of my friends. She was so cool and laid back.” What did Kardashian reveal to him?
“We talked about her and [boyfriend] Kanye [West]. She really loves that guy,” he said. “She said people think he’s an a-hole, but he’s a really sweet guy. She feels very protected and safe around him.”
“She also really loves her family and [nephew] Mason.”
