But in this preview clip of Oprah Winfrey's upcoming special on OWN, in which she talks with the E! star and the rest of her famous family, Kim reveals that the experience has, in many ways, led to changes for the better.
"I feel like I've had an epiphany," Kim says. "A lot of my friends, people that I love to just sit and talk to and spend time with, are wiser and a little bit older than me. Before, all my boyfriends were younger. I always dated five years younger. My whole thing was completely different."
Of course, now, 31-year-old Kim has been keeping busy with 35-year-old Kanye West.
"I love that I'm with someone who's a couple years older than me," Kim points out. "I love that my friends are sometimes even 20, 30 years older than me. That I can just enjoy their company and their experiences."
To which, Oprah naturally inquires, "Is Kanye West the new fairy tale?"
Not surprisingly, we don't get Kim's answer here. Oh, Oprah, you tease!
Guess we'll just have to tune in to find out what she says when Oprah's interview with the Kardashian clan airs as two one-hour specials on OWN. Part one airs this Sunday at 8 p.m. while part two airs on June 24 at the same time.
