Kim Kardashian: My Marriage Wasn't Fake & I Really Loved Kris Humphries

Kim co-hosts ‘Live With Kelly’ on Jan. 23 and says it’s crazy that people think she only married Kris for money!

Kim Kardashian is coming out swinging to defend her 72-day-marriage. The reality star spoke in-depth for the first time about why her marriage to Kris Humphries ended in divorce. When Kelly Ripa tells her that most people believe Kim married Kris for the cameras, Kim gets very upset!

“If you really think about it, I would hope this is fake and someone wouldn’t go through this,” Kim says. “Me being a hopeless romantic, I wanted it to work so badly and I made all that money and the wedding was fake and just for TV? I’m a smart woman! I would have stayed married longer!”

Kim says she’s actually hurt that so many people attacked her after she filed for divorce and she doesn’t find it hard to watch her marriage currently unravel on Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

“It doesn’t make sense. I didn’t think following my heart would create this much backlash,” she says. “I watch it back because it’s therapeutic. It’s crazy to see, to see [Kourtney and Scott] and what they’re talking about, about me. How different I was the past couple of months … they felt what I was feeling too.”

But does Kim think she’ll ever tie the knot again?

“I’m a hopeless romantic,” she says. “I fell in love and I thought it could work. I think I learned that I need to re-write my fairy tale. I definitely tried everything I felt I could.  You hear stories of people who have kids and had this life and it ended up not working out. I want babies … I want that forever love and I just felt like, if I feel in my heart this isn’t right, then why wait years for the same result.”
