Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been seen coddling and enjoying each other’s comapny across continents for the past few months, and although the reality TV star usually doesn’t leave much to the imagination, she’s been mum about this relationship until her recent interview with Oprah.
Kim opened up about her blossoming relationship to Oprah Winfrey in the second part of her Kardashian family interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” In an excerpt from the upcoming episode, the talk-show host asks Kim if her relationship with Kanye is her new fairytale, a question that immediately makes her blush.
“We met maybe almost a decade ago, I’ve known him for a really long time, we’ve been friends for like six or seven years, so it’s very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you that respects you, understands, has gone through similar things,” Kim said. “I can really relate to his mother passing, he can really relate to my father passing. I mean, there’s so many similarities in our life that I feel like I’m at a really happy, good space.”
While the two could have started dating a while ago, Kim said she feels that her experiences, namely her divorce from Kris Humphries, were things she had to go through in order to be ready for this relationship.
“I don’t know why it took so long for us to kind of get together,” Kim said. “But I think I needed to go through all my experiences and some that he’s gone through.”
In addition to questioning Kim on her relationship, Winfrey also sat down with her sister Khloé and her husband Lamar Odom. The two, who married in 2009 after dating a month, were asked if they feel the pressure from the public to make their marriage work.
“I don’t feel the pressure by outsiders,” Khloé said. “I’m not someone who is easily influenced by the public. This is my marriage, this is my real life. I feel the pressure from me from myself to be a great wife.”
