“I didn’t think following my heart would create this much backlash,” Kardashian said of the public negativity following the announcement that her 72-day marriage to NBA star Kris Humphries was over.
Rumors of a sham wedding and a conniving Kardashian, whose only goal was to profit from her nuptials, flooded the Internet following the pair’s split, forcing Kim to move in with her mother. Kim even admitted that she packed only two pairs of sweatpants and a set of pajamas to do some major “soul searching” during her media hiatus.
Ripa then brought up the awkward fact that she and former guest co-host Nick Lachey dressed up as Kim and her ex-husband on their wedding day for the talk show’s Halloween episode — just hours before the pair announced that their marriage was over. Talk about bad timing.
But the tense moment was quickly alleviated as Kim graciously told Kelly, “That was the one thing that made me smile that day.”
The pair also got to talking about the the latest shocking divorce to rock Hollywood — the dissolution of Heidi Klum and Seal’s seven-year marriage. But after going through her own difficult split, Kim made it clear that she was done passing judgement on other couples.
“It’s so sad,” Kim said of Heidi and Seal’s announcement. “I would never wish anyone to go through a divorce, but then again after what I went through, you don’t really know until you’re in this person’s shoes … When I see other people when I might not understand their situation, now I really just step back because you don’t really know what they’re going through.”
Although Kim is aware that her own situation couldn’t be more different than Heidi’s — the supermodel was married for seven years and has four children — she made it clear that it’s better to be honest when it comes to your relationship rather than putting on a brave face for the sake of appearances.
“I definitely tried everything I felt like I could … I want babies. I want forever love. I just felt like, you know, if I feel in my heart that this isn’t right, then why wait years to have the same result?”
So what’s next for Kim? According to the reality star, she’s hard at working putting her metaphorical pen to paper.
“I really learned that i just need to rewrite my fairytale,” she said.
It would serve all of us well to remember that there are few things the Kardashians say, do or tweet that are not tied to publicity or promotion.
If you recall a few weeks back, Kim Kardashian confused a number of us, when she started tweeting to the social media account of a fictitious plastic toy:
“Merry Christmas Barbs @BarbieStyle! Long time no see! What did Ken get you for Christmas? Miss you doll!” and ” I’m sure we will be seeing lots of each other!Shopping soon!Xo RT @BarbieStyle: Happy Doll-idays to you too @KimKardashian! See you in 2012?”
We posed the theory that since Kim has said she’s her own product and brand, that it wasn’t all that strange for her to be communicating with another brand and product.
It turns out Kim was just chatting with a business partner. E! Online confirms that the Kardashian sisters will be immortalized in plastic as they lend their likeness to become limited-edition Barbie-brand dolls.
Although a rep for Mattel told E! they don’t discuss product rumors, a source tells the network, that limited-edition Kim, Khloe and Kourtney dolls are in the works and should be available later this year.
Not shockingly, the line of dolls is rumored to be called the “Dash dolls” because the dolls will be wearing clothing tied into looks you can buy at the Kardashians’ Dash boutiques.
The sisters will join the ranks of other celebs like Cher, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Heidi Klum, and Barbara Streisand and others to have their own Barbie-branded dolls.
I’ve updated the gallery with photos of Kim at Heidi Klum’s 11th annual Halloween Bash at Lavo in NYC on October 31st. Enjoy the photos!
