On her ambition: “I would absolutely characterize myself as ambitious,” she says. She credits her late father, lawyer Robert Kardashian, who died of esophageal cancer in 2003, with instilling a work ethic in her. “I put myself on a budget. My parents raised us saying that at 18, we’d be cut off,” she explains. So while “we had tennis lessons twice a week and we would complain about it,” the girls were kept on a short leash: no going out on Saturday nights, and church on Sundays. “If we wanted this lifestyle, we had to work extra hard to get it. All of our friends had credit cards and cell phones, but that wasn’t even a possibility.”
On Relationships: “I used to be so dependent on the guys I was in a relationship with. I don’t know why, because I wasn’t raised that way. If I looked at myself at 19, I would shake myself and be like, Wake up; you are way too smart for this.” On her marriage, she says, “We went to Vegas, he said, ‘Let’s get married!’ and I said”â€”she puts on a docile voiceâ€””‘Okay.'”
Kim maintains she’s a changed woman. “As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned so much from relationships. My tolerance level is so different. So after years of being in not the best relationships, you grow up.
On Paris Hilton: “We don’t really talk. As I always say, everyone comes into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. And she was in my life for a long time.” So Paris is so last season? She smiles. “I’ll let you say it. There comes a point in life where you just grow apart and you realize you’re not as similar as you thought. And I never run into her anywhere. Isn’t that so weird?”
On Plastic Surgery:“Some people say, ‘You’ve definitely had your nose done.’ If I had, I would say, ‘Here’s the doctor, he’s amazing, and I’ll make the appointment for you.’ Sometimes I’ll see pictures that say I’ve had my nose done, and the before pic is after the after.” She attributes the nose debate to her favorite makeup trick, contouring. “Someone saw me last night and my nose was so contoured. And they were like, ‘You’ve had your nose done?’ And I was like, ‘No, wait until I wash my face.'”
