When you see Kim Kardashian covering yet another magazine, you have to wonder what the reality star could possibly have left to say. We've already seen her musings about life on "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" and "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," read her words of wisdom on Twitter and her blog, and seen her countless other magazine covers. What makes the March issue of Allure different, though, is that she's revealing the answers to long-term questions left in the wake of the spectacular failure that was her much-publicized 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries, such as would she ever get married on TV again? Kim, 31, who is rarely snapped without her makeup and hair done, is also noticeably natural in the accompanying pics.
"People [think] because you film your life on a reality show, you live everything for the cameras. But we all have limits," Kim tells the beauty magazine. "My mom [Kris Jenner, who is also Kim's manager] has no limits. We need someone, right, to have no limits? That's my mom." Kim swears that she does, however, and that they're more strict today than they were before her fairytale wedding and not-so storybook split.
"When I saw Khloe and Lamar get married -- and they had their wedding on TV -- I thought, 'Oh, my gosh, that's so exciting! That's what I want!' If you were to ask me now, that's not what I want." So don't expect another two-part special the next time Kim believes she's found love. In fact, the whole experience "definitely made me want to be more private with my relationship, whenever I choose to get into one again," she dishes. "I'm not ready, but when that time comes, I'll be more cautious about who I let my world open up to."
And if the brunette beauty ever walks down the aisle again, she insists that the wedding would be the complete opposite of what she chose last time. "I would just want it to be so special, with our family and close friends, and that's it," Kim reveals. "Somewhere on a deserted island, very private. No cameras."
Since her breakup, Kim's dealt with much of the public wondering if her short-lived marriage was fake, just another plot point in the financially lucrative soap opera that her life has become. She still has fans, sure, but the petite star is aware that the incident caused a backlash that she's still experiencing. "Do I think there are more haters than before?" she asks. "Not really. But I think this has given them a platform to have a louder voice."
In spite of those haters, Kim insists that she's moving forward, although she admits that she doesn't quite now what the future holds. "Do I want kids of my own? Absolutely," Kardashian explains. "But I don't know if that's what's meant for me. Maybe I'll just work, work, work, and not think about it."
