Kim Kardashian talks relationships: 'I think I need to not live in a fairy tale'
Kim Kardashian might not believe in a fairy tale romance anymore.
The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star, who divorced her husband Kris Humphries 72 days after their wedding, dished with her sisters in a new interview about relationships and children.
"I think I'll always be a hopeless romantic," Kardashian told Glamour magazine for its January issue, set to hit newsstands on December 6. "It means that I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic."
Kim Kardashian has kept a low media profile since she filed for divorce from Humphries on October 31. Though she has largely shied away from interviews, Kardashian did appear on "Dancing With The Stars" last week alongside her family to cheer on her brother Rob who went on to place second in the competition.
"Kim & Kourtney Take New York," the latest chapter in the Kardashian reality saga, premiered on Sunday, November 27, and featured Kardashian and her new husband butting heads while living with Kim's sister Kourtney, her longtime boyfriend Scott Disick and Kourtney and Scott's son Mason.
Kim Kardashian's sister Khloe said she appreciates her sister's point of view about relationships, saying, "I love Kim's belief in love and the fact that she feels so strongly about it. She has that dream every girl has."
Kim Kardashian replied, "I don't think I have it right now." Khloe responded, "Which is fine, but I'm your sister and I know why you don't have it right now. But I know you will get it again."
"I always wanted what Mom and Dad had," Kim Kardashian said, referring to her mother Kris Jenner and biological father Robert Kardashian, who died in 2003 from esophageal cancer. The couple divorced in 1990 and Jenner went on to wed Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner in 1991.
"At first I was like, I want six kids. Then I went down to four, then I was down to three," Kim Kardashian said. "And now I'm like, maybe I won't have any. Maybe I'll just be a good aunt."
Kardashian added, "At this moment in my life, I feel like maybe I'm not supposed to have kids and all that."
"Kim & Kourtney Take New York" was watched by almost 3.2 million people, marking a 6 percent rise from last year.
About 2.3 million of the viewers were between the ages of 18 to 49 and 1.7 million were women, preliminary figures by Nielsen Media Research showed. Last year's premiere of the series, a spin-off of E!'s "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," was watched by about 3 million viewers.
