I’ll begin by saying that I’m just as sick of this Kardashian story as you guys are. But just like watching a car crash, I can’t seem to turn away.
While scanning my Twitter feed, I noticed that Kim Kardashian posted a link. Just a link. There was no comment accompanying it – so of course, I was intrigued. I ran my mouse over the link and saw that it would direct me to Kim’s website and to an article entitled “A Message To My Fans”.
Earlier today, I began to think about the Kardashian family and how they’ve become such a pop-culture phenomenon. I then started to resent the family, as a whole when thinking about the possibility of Kim’s marriage being a big publicity stunt. Well, call me gullible if you’d like because after reading Kim’s message – I totally believe her.
I believe that Kim really was in love with Kris Humphries and it simply didn’t work out. I think it’s sad that the majority of the world knew that her marriage would fail before she was willing to admit it herself. Read the message below and decide for yourself.
This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. I see all of the support and I am so thankful for my fans, friends and family who are helping me through this difficult time.
I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones. First and foremost, I married for love. I can’t believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show! I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it’s who I am! We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open!
Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a hopeless romantic! I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.
I’m being honest here and I hope you respect my courage because this isn’t easy to go through. But I do know that I have to follow my heart. I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn’t turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.
There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this. I’m so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation.
I’m sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart I believe now that I really am.
