Kim Kardashian's best friend says she's going to get engaged to Kanye West — as soon as her divorce from Kris Humphries is finalized.

"It would be great [if Kim and Kanye get married]!" Jonathan Cheban tells Life & Style at Gabrielle's Angel Foundation 2012 Angel Ball in NYC on Oct. 22. "She needs to get divorced first, though. When that guy [Kris Humphries] is done playing games, I guess she'll get engaged."

As for the "games" Jonathan's referring to, he adds, "Kim doesn't really pay attention to [her relationship with Kris] anymore, so she just lets it go and she's happy. It's yesterday's news."

Oct. 31 will mark one year since Kim filed for divorce from Kris, after just 72 days of marriage. The pair are currently hashing the divorce out in court.

Happily, Kim has moved on with her life and found a companion in Kanye, whom she began dating in April. "I can't even think about being with anyone else than the man I'm with," she's said about her longtime pal turned beau.

So if the superstar couple ever do tie the knot, will Kim share her special day on TV like she did with Kris? Not likely.

"He's a little more private," Jonathan says. "He films with Kim, but I don't think he would do his own full Kim and Kanye show. He's very private."

Jonathan isn't the only Kardashian bud who sees an engagement in her future. Just last week, Ryan Seacrest hinted that the pair could get engaged on Kim's 32nd birthday in Italy, saying, "I think we could definitely see an update on this story on Monday."

It may not have happened yet, but hearing what their friends believe, this couple could be heading down the aisle sooner than we think!
