Kim Kardashian on life post-Humphries

Kim Kardashian sounded off about her failed marriage on "The Tonight Show" on Wednesday.

The reality star told Jay Leno she should have listened to her family when they warned her about marrying ex-hubby Kris Humphries.

Though she never mentioned the New Jersey Nets player by name, Kardashian insisted that she truly loved him, which is why she wasn’t open to anyone else’s opinions.

"I'm a person, when I'm in love, you can't tell me anything. And you gotta go through it yourself. So, I did what I believed in doing, and sometimes you don't want to hear what your family has to say," she said.

"You look back and you're like, 'OK, that was a sign,' or, you know, 'Maybe I should have listened to them,” she added. “But, I wouldn't have been who I am today had I not gone through that."

Fortunately, Kardashian said, her family was there for her when everything fell apart. She said she moved in with her mom, Kris, for four months afterward, bringing only one bag of clothes with her - just sweats and UGG boots.

Kardashian and Humphries - who were married last fall - were only hitched for 72 days before ending their marriage in October 2011.

“I pride myself, and my family, on being an open book. This is what we do. We share our lives on a reality show. When this is our reality, and this is what's really happening, we show it," she said, adding, “I didn’t know the media would be so brutal with it."

So, would her marriage have imploded had the couple not been under such intense public scrutiny?

Kardashian thinks so.

"I truly, honestly believe it would have been the same thing," she said. “We are exactly who we are, whether the cameras are on or off, and that's why I love my family so much. What you see is what you get. I showed my life and the reality of my life and it might not be pretty all the time, but it's who I am and I learned so much from it."

I will confess..I did hire that lady to throw flour on me...I am so need of attention now.

    Leave it to CNN to post stories about a no talent person / family. This is the exact reason why America is forced feed the Kardasian garbage and we just can't escape it. CNN, the new TMZ / Enquirer.... Where are the REAL stars in Hollywood?

    KK’s show that’s so-called “so popular” or “highly rated”, is on E! Seriously, E!? The WORST rated show on one of the main networks would be considered huge numbers for E!!

    Success would be generating numbers on one of the main networks and we all know KK wasn’t able to garner the slightest bit of attention because when they tried putting her on Dancing with the Stars, she was voted off so quick, it was quite hilarious!

      That's her come hither look. It's what she uses on guys she's interested in to see if she can get a rise out of them. And I'm guessing she does.

      @Samantha- I agree, but I think that is just a natural high. I also think her expression never changes, because of all the botox in her face.

      As a woman of Rom (gypsy) origin, I resent that. Rom women do not behave as this woman, and her sisters do. Therefore, please quit calling her a gypsy – she is 1/2 Armenian, not gypsy. Thank you.

      @Clete- it is just one of those mysteries of life, I guess. Don't try to figure it out, it will just drive you crazy. Don't give that money grabbing K family that power over you! Just let it go. lol

    Poor little Kimmy! Don't you just feel so bad for her? She has such a hard life, and nobody likes her, either. I go to bed every night & say a prayer for her & her family, just because I feel so bad for them. OK, if you believe all that crap, I have some swamp land in Nebraska I would like to sell you. That crazy K family is just geting what they deserve. Total disrespect from the public, which is well earned, I might add.

      So what do you think about Humphries, Fritzy, hung or not hung?

      I imagine he's hung HUGE. Why else would Kimmy want him so bad? At least I like to imagine him as huge when I am having my alone time at night in my bed!

    • Fritzy

      @nbafan & palintwit- I would guess that he is hung like a horse. Why else would Kimmy even like him? Wasn't she the one who preferred black guys, and settled on a white guy. Has to be something, just saying....
