In the two weeks since Kim Kardashian took over the entertainment news cycle with the announcement of her divorce from Kris Humphries, the reality starlet has maintained a relatively low profile, emerging this week only to thank her fans on her blog. But Kardashian will appear on the cover of the December issue of Marie Claire and opened up to the magazine about her then-married life in an interview conducted before the headline-making news broke.
"I'm not worried about him at all. We have a lot of trust, and I don't think either of us would do anything to break that. It makes life so easy," the cover girl told the mag, out November 22. "He's such a good guy; he is so down-to-earth, and it's such a reality check. He is a normal guy, and I just want to chill out and be normal and not get glammed up all the time. He gets it. Sometimes my life can be really intimidating for people, but he allows me to work and do what I've gotta do."
The interview is full of pre-divorce praise for Humphries. "It's fun to have a partner who understands your life and lets you be you," Kim said about her soon-to-be-ex-husband. "I feel like where we're at right now is the best time in my life."
The wedding itself netted as many headlines as the divorce, resulting in a four-hour-long E! special covering the event. "I felt like if I didn't show the wedding, it would be upsetting for people who have taken this journey with me," she said about her decision to film all the fuss leading up to the lavish ceremony and reception. Regarding rumors that the wedding cost in excess of $20 million, she said, "I don't talk about money."
Next up, fans will get to see the marriage strife experienced by Kim and Kris in the next season of "Kourtney & Kim Take New York," which airs later this month on her home network.
"We'll just be who we are, and — love it or hate it — we have each other. Everything that goes on is stuff we do," she said of her family's decision to air their lives on TV. "I think that's what makes it so relatable, because we are not afraid to show crazy things."
