The Kardashian sisters cover Glamour magazine January 2012 since, evidently, they can still sell covers at the point of market saturation and past the point of a fake backlash that includes a 175,000-strong online petition.
It’s an oddly Spring-Summer-looking cover, with too many primary and zesty secondary colours weirdly mixed with holiday shimmer. And no one’s wearing pants.
Kourtney Kardashian’s probably the cutest on the cover, although the mouth open thing looks K-Stew mouth-breathery. Kim Kardashian looks sallow and she’s in the middle, again. Khloe Kardashian looks… well, she’s there too. She’s styled the same as her sisters again and, well, she’s gained a substantial amount of weight the last few months and aside from this shoot she wears it well.
This appears to be Kim Kardashian’s first post-divorce interview. With Glamour. The budget-ness of which is telling. Like Kourtney & Kim Take New York, it’s just another mouthpiece for the 31-year-old to play the victim. She was married for 72-days and she filed without a fight, yet she bemoans a childless/ loveless future as though she’s not in her 30s and she can’t JLo it and marry again.
Kim Kardashian: …I think I’ll always be a hopeless romantic.
Glamour: What do you mean by that?
Kim Kardashian: It means that I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.
Khloé Kardashian: I love Kim’s belief in love and the fact that she feels so strongly about it. She has that dream every girl has.
Kim Kardashian: Well, I don’t think I have it right now.
Khloé Kardashian: Which is fine, but I’m your sister and I know why you don’t have it right now. But I know you will get it again.
Kim Kardashian: I hope I do. But by then I hope maybe I’m a little bit more realistic.
Glamour: Realistic about what?
Kim Kardashian: The fact that what I want isn’t possible.
Khloé Kardashian: What, a guy on a white horse coming to get you? That doesn’t happen!
Kim Kardashian: I don’t know. 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.
Khloé Kardashian: But mom and dad got a divorce, and she met Bruce. And you were a child; you don’t know what Mom and Dad had. As an outsider looking in, it probably looked like paradise.
Kim Kardashian: At this moment in my life, I feel like maybe I’m not supposed to have kids and all that.
Khloé Kardashian: Oh my God. Don’t be dramatic all of a sudden!
Kim Kardashian: That’s how I feel. Maybe my fairy tale has a different ending than I dreamed it would. But that’s OK. - via Glamour Magazine.
Firstly, Khloe Kardashian is the only one with any perspective on marriage. Clearly. Her sister’s comments are moronic, absolute, and childish; who, as an adult, has that puritanical a view of someone else’s marriage? As the 26-year-old said, you have no idea… especially since Kris Jenner admitted a marriage-ending affair. Yeah, not perfect.
WTF is with Kim Kardashian’s portion of this interview? She’s suddenly written off marriage and kids? After another failed, fake marriage? And pretending she’s some lovelorn 12-year-old girl scribbling out names on her dream journal, not a grown woman. And then there’s Khloe Kardashian’s stock line about loving her immediately-senior sister’s love of love; making the point the divorcee’s not capable of loving anyone but herself. Moreover, she’s in love with the idea of love and, as Kris Humphries points out in the wedding special, any random dude could fit into her idiotic, movie-based notion of love.
