Kim Kardashian In Glamour: ‘I Need To Not Live In A Fairy Tale’
For those of you wondering when the Kardashians’ fame star will fade, the answer is: not any time soon. As long as they keep selling covers (and clothes and jewelry and makeup and television advertisements), they won’t be going anywhere — which is why Glamour was smart enough to snag them for their January cover. Though the magazine notes the shoot took place “earlier this fall” (read: before the divorce that rocked a reality nation!), Kim (along with her sisters) opened up to the magazine about the aftermath of her announcement.
Love her or hate her, Kim sounds thoroughly rocked by her divorce. An excerpt from the interview is below.
Kim: …I think I’ll always be a hopeless romantic.
GLAMOUR: What do you mean by that?
Kim: 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.
Khloé: 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: Well, I don’t think I have it right now.
Khloé: 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.
Kim: I hope I do. But by then I hope maybe I’m a little bit more realistic.
GLAMOUR: Realistic about what?
Kim: The fact that what I want isn’t possible.
Khloé: What, a guy on a white horse coming to get you? That doesn’t happen!
Kim: I don’t know. I always wanted what Mom and Dad had. And at first I was like, I want six kids. Then I went down to four, then I was down to three, and now I’m like, maybe I won’t have any. Maybe I’ll just be a good aunt.
Khloé: But Mom and Dad got a divorce, and she met Bruce. And you were a child; you don’t know what Mom and Dad had. As an outsider looking in, it probably looked like paradise.
Kim: At this moment in my life, I feel like maybe I’m not supposed to have kids and all that.
Khloé: Oh my God. Don’t be dramatic all of a sudden!
Kim: That’s how I feel. Maybe my fairy tale has a different ending than I dreamed it would. But that’s OK.
