Much like Jennifer Aniston, the Kardashians are often covered around these parts. Many of you yell at us for writing about the do-nothings, and believe me, I feel the same way about them as you do. But there are times when a J.Lo and Casper picture just won’t do and we need content — and the Kardashians are nothing if not givers of content.
While Khloe covers next month’s Cosmo, her sister, Kim, is the May cover girl of the U.K.’s Cosmopolitan magazine (via Radar Online), and she opens up about what her failed 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries has taught her: never to flaunt a romance in front of the cameras. Fat a** chance. That’s not going to happen if Pimp Mama Krishas anything to say about it.
“We know that we put ourselves in the public eye,” Kim explains about her family. “We love doing our reality show and it’s opened doors for us to have clothing lines… and do things that we’ve always dreamed of. So it comes with the territory and we know that. But as I get older and go through certain things, it’s made me want to be more of a private person.”
That would be all well and good… if she didn’t continue with this gem: “I don’t think I would stop doing the reality show — I love doing it — but I wouldn’t have another relationship shown on the show. That might be too personal, especially when you’re just meeting someone. It’s taught me to be more private.”
“Might” be too personal? Kim is delusional if she thinks she can maintain the reality show that put her on the map (well, aside from that sex tape) while not exposing any future relationships. Can it be done? Yes. Can it be done by Kim? Heck, no. Without the on-screen drama of a boyfriend/fiancé/husband, a storyline about their latest lingerie or Shoppers Drug Mart perfume simply isn’t enough to satisfy the masses. Or E!, for that matter.
Anyway, it doesn’t matter because Kim says she isn’t “even close to dating again,” and just wants to “work on me for a bit.” I think if we were to hear Humphries’ side, he would say nothing’s changed since throughout their entire relationship, it was about her and only her. How much more work can possibly be done?
