Kim Kardashian: Why I Love Kris Humphries — I Feel Tiny & Protected!

Kim and Kris appear to be on the fast track to the altar — and Kim reveals how her basketball hunk helped her overcome her biggest fear!

Kim Kardashian is head over heels for Kris Humphries! The reality star appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on March 31 and revealed her favorite thing about her new beau — his height! And it turns out Kim, 30, used to be really freaked out by really tall guys!

“I’m like the biggest hippocrite now because I feel so tiny and small and so protected,” Kim says. “It’s like the best feeling in the world to be with a really tall guy … you feel so safe all the time and skinny and tiny!”

Wow — we’ve never heard Kim gush about Kris, who plays for the NBA’s New Jersey Nets, like this. They really are the real deal!

But Kim admits that was totally intimadated by Khloe’s hubby, LA Lakers star Lamar Odom when she first met him!

“I was really afraid of [tall guys] like seriously, they really freaked me out and they always looked really awkward,” she says. “When Khloe met Lamar, when I first met him I was like ‘Don’t stand up!’ It really scares me.”

Kim went on to tell Jay the sweet story of how Kim and Kris met — and we must admit it’s super cute.

“We met at a basketball game in New Jersey and I saw him and thought he was cute and I told my friend who was sitting next to me,” she says. “I feel so pathetic! I saw him and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this guy running in front of me is so cute’ and my friend was like ‘Oh, I know his friend’ and so they kind of set us up on this group dinner … and I thought, ‘Why not?'”

The story is not cute. Kim is trash and this is her 3rd professional athlete. Kris Humphries is 26 years old, he is too young for Kim.

I love the Kardashians. It’s awesome to watch them on E! in High Definition. I watch a lot of Reality TV, one of my favorite reasons is that it doesn’t cost much for interesting entertainment. I work at DISH Network. I love how many High Definition channels I get. I watched the interview before, but I really enjoyed this clip. Those girls are hilarious.
