Kim Kardashian Game Changers Awards - P 2011

The reality star shows a more sober side in the wake of her failed marriage to Kris Humphries.

Kim Kardashian is showing some of the wear and tear of her October divorce filing from Kris Humphries and the resulting fallout. In her first cover interview conducted after the filing, it seems the reality star is decidedly more grounded about romance and family.

“I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed,” Kardashian tells Glamour Magazine for its Jan. issue on sale Dec. 6.

“I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that," she continues. "I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.”

That’s a far cry from an interview she gave Marie Claire a few weeks before she filed for divorce in which she described her marriage to Humphries as “the best time of my life.”

It seems the recent events have changed more than just her naïve view of romance, but she’s reevaluating her early desires for her own future family.

“I don’t know,” she says. “I always wanted what mom and dad had. And at first I was like, ‘I want six kids.’ Then I went down to four, then I was down to three…and now I’m like, 'Maybe I won’t have any. Maybe I’ll just be a good aunt.' ”

She goes on to say, “That’s how I feel. Maybe my fairy tale has a different ending than I dreamed it would. But that’s OK.”

Thankfully for her, her sisters are also featured in the magazine. And the always blunt Khloe Kardashian tells Kim, “Oh my God. Don’t be dramatic all of a sudden!”
