Kim Kardashian: I didn’t expect backlash

Kim Kardashian didn’t realise being a “hopeless romantic” would cause so much “backlash”.

The reality TV beauty is in the process of divorcing basketball player Kris Humphries, with their marriage breaking down after just 72 days. Kim has faced a barrage of criticism since splitting from Kris, with many suggesting the nuptials were a publicity stunt.

Kim had the chance to discuss the condemnation she’s suffered from the hands of the general public when she co-presented Live with Kelly yesterday.

“I really didn’t think that following my heart would create this much backlash. Me being such a hopeless romantic, I wanted to believe in something so badly... [my sister] Khloé and Lamar got married after knowing each other for a month and they’re going on three years. My mom and Bruce after five months got married and they just celebrated their 20th anniversary,” she explained.

“I fell in love and thought it could work just like the examples that I saw."

Kim also addressed allegations that her wedding was a money-making scheme.

The star dismissed such claims as entirely false.

“If you really think about it, if this was a business decision and I really made all that money that everyone was claiming that we made off this wedding, and if the wedding was fake and just for TV," she said.

"I’m a smart business woman — I would have stayed married longer. This was a bad business decision.”

Kelly also raised Seal and Heidi Klum’s recent split. Kim expressed her sadness at their marriage breakdown.

"I would never wish anyone to go through a divorce. But after what I've been through, I see that you don't really know until you're in that person's shoes," she said.

"People don't really see my heart and I just want them to understand why I do what I do. So when I see other people that I might understand their situation, I say, 'You've really got to step back because you don't know what they're going through.'"

Kelly also apologised for her Halloween costume. The TV host and Nick Lachey dressed as Kim and Kris at their wedding.

News of their split came soon afterwards.

"Imagine our shock when literally an hour later this announcement was made," Kelly said before Kim added: "That was probably the one thing that made me smile that day."
