    Kim Kardashian Opens Up About Divorce on Live With Kelly

    For Kim Kardashian, things have obviously been a little tough recently.

    "It's been a hard couple of months," the E! reality star told Kelly Ripa while cohosting Live With Kelly this morning, when the subject of her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries came up at the beginning of the show.

    Kim revealed that when the union ended, she packed up nothing more than "two pairs of sweatpants and a pair of pajamas" and moved in with her mom, Kris Jenner, to do "some soul searching" and admitted she was shocked that the public thought the marriage was nothing but a cash-grabbing opportunity.

    "If you really think about it, if this was a business decision and I really made all that money that everyone was claiming that we made off this wedding, and if the wedding was fake and just for TV, I'm a smart businesswoman, I would have stayed married longer," said Kim. "I really didn't think following my heart would create this much backlash."

    Kim insisted she "tried everything that [she] could" to make the union with Humphries last, adding: "I want that forever love, and if I feel in my heart this isn't right, then why wait years to have the same results?"

    In other words, the self-proclaimed "hopeless romantic" considers the unfortunate experience as just one of life's little lessons.

    "I think I just learned that I need to rewrite my fairytale," Kim said.
