The real Kim is just as deep as you imagined.
Just when you thought you already possessed too much unsought knowledge about the life and times of internet-breaker, contouring aficionado and impressive breast-haver Kim Kardashian, she gives another insightful interview.
In a Rolling Stone cover story, plus a Q&A with retired state judge LaDoris Cordell in an event organised by the prestigious Commonwealth Club of California, Kardashian divulged the information you always wanted to know but didn’t know how to ask.
Here, we present some of the things you may not know about the reigning queen of overexposure.
Kim Kardashian thinks she’s actually pretty smart, thanks very much.
“I believe that I am so much smarter than I’m portrayed,” she told Rolling Stone.

She thought Bruce Jenner would “come after” her if she told her mother about his cross-dressing.
“I was shaking. I didn’t know if I’d just found out his deepest, darkest secret, and he was going to come after me,” she said about her feelings after walking in on her stepfather Jenner, 65, cross-dressing 12 years ago.
Jenner then phoned her stepdaughter and told her to keep the secret. “One day, I’ll talk to you about this. Until then, don’t tell a soul,” Jenner said.
Jenner has now transitioned and is known as Caitlyn Jenner. To our knowledge, she’s never come after her stepdaughter.
She doesn’t think she promotes an “unhealthy” standard of beauty, because she makes her make-up line available to us plebs.
In response to a question from Cordell about pressure on women and girls to look a certain way, Kardashian swerved around the issue and talked about how her haircare and makeup ranges are affordably priced so they can be consumed by “the masses.”
Paris Hilton was less than impressed with Kim Kardashian’s sex tape.
“I don’t think she was that happy. We didn’t really talk about it. I probably would have thought, ‘Oh, my gosh, let me give her advice,’ but we had no communication. But our friendship had fizzled before that,” she told Rolling Stone.
She thinks interracial couples are “cute”.
“When I was in high school, I’d get magazines and see interracial couples and think, ‘They are so cute.’ I’ve always been attracted to a certain kind of look,” she said, about dating Michael Jackson’s nephew TJ TJackson as a teen.
She got married to producer Damon Thomas at 20 because she wanted to be a housewife.
“I was very happy at home learning how to cook and clean and keep a house. I knew that was where I wanted to end up,” she told Rolling Stone.
On what it was like living under the same roof as O.J. Simpson during his murder trial.
“It was surreal, with Johnnie Cochran and Robert Shapiro and all these guys having meetings at my dad’s house,” Kardashian told Rolling Stone.
Her mother Kris was a close friend of the slain Nicole Brown Simpson, and believed O.J. had murdered her. She and Kardashian’s attorney father, Robert Kardashian, had already split at that time.
“I definitely took my dad’s side. We just always thought my dad was the smartest person in the world, and he really believed in his friend.”
Now? “It’s weird. I just try not to think about it.”
OK, all right, she’s a feminist – if you insist on labelling her.
“I’ve never really been one on labels, and I don’t like to push my view,” Kardashian told Rolling Stone.
“If I feel something, it’s how I feel. I never say, ‘I feel this way, so you should feel that way.’ Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but I just am who I am. But, yeah.” She smiles. “I think you would call me a feminist.”
She told Cordell that she’s not all like, “Free the nipple and everything”, probably because her nipples are the most free nipples around and she’s capable of breaking the internet with her butt, but that “you should do what makes you comfortable.”
On how to avoid having your genitalia photographed when exiting vehicles.
“I rarely wear underwear, but that never happened to me,” she said about her time as Paris Hilton’s right-hand woman at da clubs. “I was never drinking. . . . I think that saved me a lot.”
She has a very specific drinking schedule.
She doesn’t do drugs or drink alcohol, except for “five shots of vodka in Vegas every three years.”
There’s nothing mysterious about her brother Rob’s exit from the spotlight – he just got fat.
“He has gained weight. He feels uncomfortable being on the show, and that’s OK. Do I think he smokes weed, drinks beer, hangs out and plays video games with his friends all day long? Yes.”
