Kim sat down with Oprah to talk about her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries and she says that the marriage was not fake and that he will always have a ‘place in her heart’ — do you think Kim is being honest?
Kim Kardashian is breaking her silence in her most in-depth interview yet! The reality star sat down with the Queen of daytime talk, Oprah Winfrey, in a taped two-part special. During part one that aired on OWN June 17, Kim told Orpah that she was truly in love with Kris Humphries.
“I was in love, I wanted the life that I always pictured my fairytale life to be,” she said. “I would’ve had an extravagant wedding anyway, to end that relationship was a risk in itself to lose ratings and I had to take the risk to be honest to myself.’
Kim says that the main reason that her marriage fell a part was because she barely knew Kris.
“I think when people first meet, everything is great in the beginning,” she admits. “But I didn’t spend more than a whole week with my ex before we married. When we moved in together, I saw how our relationship was… I don’t want to get into the small things, but once we moved in, I knew he was not the one.”
But Kim had nothing but nice things to say to Kris and it sounded like she was apologizing to him!
“He’s a good person,” she said. “I will always have a place in my heart for him. It just wasn’t for me. You know in your heart … For anyone I hurt, I’m truly sorry, I don’t wish pain on anyone, but the person I am because of that crazy experience, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I loved him, obviously it hurt him, and it hurt me too. It was embarassing, I don’t want to call it a mistake, it was a lesson.”
