Going against mother: Kim Kardashian plans to change her surname when she marries fiancé Kris Humphries
There seems to be a case of 'Do as I say, not as I do' in the Kardashian household.
Family matriarch Kris Jenner has spoken of her disapproval of daughter Kim taking on her fiancé Kris Humphries' surname when they marry.
Mrs Jenner says she does not want Kim to give up the name that has become a globally recognised brand - despite the fact that she also dropped Kardashian when she remarried.

'I don’t think she should take his name and be Kim Humphries,' Kris, 55, told PopEater.com.
'I think she needs to be Kim Kardashian because she’s worked so hard to get where she is.'
But Kim, 30, plans to go against her mother's wishes, according to TMZ, which reports that the reality star will 'for sure' take the basketballer's surname after she walks down the aisle this summer.

While Kim is the most famous and wealthiest of the group, the Kardashians have styled themselves as a family brand - appearing together in their multiple reality series and often in various endorsement deals - although Kim takes on many solo projects as well.
Kim's younger sister Khloe now goes by Khloe Kardashian Odom since marrying husband Lamar in September 2009.
Mrs Jenner has also warned her future son-in-law that he is in for a big lifestyle change.

Kris purchased the enormous 20.5 carat diamond ring, thought to be worth $2 million, from Kim's favourite jewellery Lorraine Schwartz, despite being offered free rings from other companies.
Shwartz, a friend of the Kardashian family, wrote on her Facebook page: 'Wow, how romantic. Aside from the 20.5-carat diamonds, Kris wanted to add something extra special from him in the ring.

'It took him 3 days to come up with a coded message of love for Kim to be engraved in the ring - along with a K <3 K. Amazing!!'
Once the lavish wedding is over and done with, Kim and Kris say they will be wasting no time in starting a family.
'We talk about it (having kids) all the time,' she told People. 'Kris is just as close to his family as I am to mine. In the next year we want to maybe try to start a family.'
