Once we moved in, I knew that [Kris Humphries] was not ‘the one. As heartbreaking as that was to [file for divorce]… the lesson that I learned, and the person I am because of that crazy experience, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Kim Kardashian Quotes
We met maybe almost a decade ago, I've known him for a really long time, we've been friends for like six or seven years, so it's very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you that respects you, understands, has gone through similar things. I can really relate to his mother passing, he can really relate to my father passing . . . I feel like I'm at a really happy, good space.
I saw a story about a Memphis high school where 90 young female students were either pregnant or have given birth this year! I just couldn’t believe this and I find it so sad and disturbing. It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls...but girls, these are not people you should idolize!
I don't think I'm ready to go into, you know, the details of what went on in my marriage. But I do want to make clear that I would never marry for a TV show, for money, for anything like that. I think that's really ridiculous that I have to even defend that... I guess, you know, that comes along with when you film your wedding for a reality show.
I think I’m really at the point now where I feel I’ve done so much that I’m OK with not having that attention. Sometimes it’s overbearing. I used to think that I would never feel this way. Before, we used to buy all the tabloids and see if we were in them.
When we first started [the show], we came together as a family and said, “If we’re going to do this reality show, we’re going to be 100 percent who we really are.” E! has never once put anything out there that we haven’t approved of or accepted. If there’s something that we’re going through, it’s going to get out anyway. It’ll be on the cover of a tabloid, and it’ll be twisted the completely wrong way. So why not tell our story?
I have cellulite. So what! I’ve never claimed to be perfect. It’s crazy anyone should assume that just because you’re in the spotlight, you’re flawless.
Some people say, 'You've definitely had your nose done.' If I had, I would say, 'Here's the doctor, he's amazing, and I'll make the appointment for you.' Sometimes I'll see pictures that say I've had my nose done, and the before pic is after the after.
I never made a business off of the [sex] tape. I made a business off my family and our TV show. Before the tape came out, we were in the works to do our TV show, but people don't know that. I thought there would be a lot of misconceptions about me, so it was not even a question that it had to be a family show.
I would absolutely characterize myself as ambitious. I put myself on a budget. My parents raised us saying that at 18, we'd be cut off. If we wanted this lifestyle, we had to work extra hard to get it. All of our friends had credit cards and cell phones, but that wasn't even a possibility.
I've decided to sacrifice my digital life to help give real life to millions of people affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa and India. It's true, I'm a little obsessed with Twitter, but I'm even more obsessed with fighting AIDS.
Trust me honey, if I take this bra off you will tell me I need to get them done. I'm totally not against plastic surgery. ... I've tried Botox before. That's the only thing that I've done.
I’ve learned to ignore everything. In the beginning, I thought I was too sensitive for this. I’d Google myself and it would freak me out. Now, I could care less if they say I’m pregnant with twins by my brother.
People used to say we were like the real-life Brady Bunch. So many crazy things would happen. People would come over and say, ‘Where are the cameras?’ Everyone always said it was like a sitcom at our house! We also knew that while we had the glitz and the glam for an audience to vicariously live through, we are such a normal family that everyone can relate.
Some people say really mean things about my being overweight. I read something on my Twitter that was like, ‘Oh, you still need to lose a few pounds.’ And I’m just like, Seriously? Come on. If I’m happy and in shape, that’s all that should really matter.
So many people think that everything will be handed to them, and that’s just not the case. You have to work for what you get.
Nobody understands what it is like to be chased day and night by the paparazzi. You have no privacy at all. Your life is lived in the glare of lights in a fishbowl. Every move you make is recorded, analyzed and debated -- and then more often than not harshly criticized for no good reason . . . You have to separate the person who you are in private from the object that goes out there being on display. You look at the photos of Britney for her new MTV special, and you can see such sadness in her eyes from being a prisoner, being chased her entire life with absolutely no privacy.
I learned my lesson on that one, and that certainly won’t happen again. I was betrayed and it cost [Vivid Entertainment] a lot of money to legally settle with us. It’s now in the past and forgotten.

I am not the big party person everybody makes me out to be. I don’t drink alcohol. I never have because I hate it. I’m always in bed and never make the after-parties. So there is not a lot of what I do that can get me into trouble. You’re more likely to find me at the bowling alley than at a dress-up party.
