‘I don’t really want to explain who Kris Humphries is’: Kim Kardashian admits concern over telling her kids about 72-marriage to former NBA star and other life events in new KUWTK clip
In a new clip from Thursday’s episode of KUWTK shared by E!, the 40-year-old talks to Scott Disick about how she will explain things from her past, including her marriage to second husband Kris Humphries.
The conversation begins as Kim says she is hesitant to show iconic scenes from the reality series to her seven-year-old daughter North West, and wanting to keep her children out of the spotlight.
Awkward conversation: Kim Kardashian admits she worries about explaining ‘who Kris Humphries is’ to her kids in new KUWTK clip (pictured on the E! show that will end this year)
‘They do the crying scene from Bora Bora, pretty much all my crying scenes,’ Kim laughs while talking to Scott.
‘[North will] come in and go, “Mom, I lost my earring!” She’ll, like, do that as a joke and I’m like, “You have no idea what that is.”‘
Scott then suggests that it might be best for them to show their children KUWTK themselves and explain it all to them.
‘I’m just thinking like they’re going to watch it at some point,’ Scott reasons.
Deep thoughts: Scott says it must be like The Truman Show for the Kardashian-Jenner babies who were born while their reality show cameras were rolling
‘It’s their life. At what point do we sit them down and say, “You’re allowed to go through these seasons and see what mom and dad did all these years?”‘
Kim then responds with ‘I don’t really want to explain who Kris Humphries is,’ referencing the NBA player who she married in front of the KUWTK cameras, but split with just 72 days later in 2011.
However, Scott argues back: ‘That is your life, that is your past, and at some point they’re going to be interested in seeing everything. They’re either going to do it without us or with us.’
Talking it out: Scott and Kim were seen having a discussion about their children learning all about their past embarrassments on KUWTK
Kim admits that she would rather watch the show with her children eventually, but also wants to protect certain things from her past.
‘I’m just not ready for the kids to see it yet, at least North,’ she says. ‘Recently the kids have asked to see the show but I’m really hesitant just because me personally, I’m going to have to explain a lot.’
‘Honestly the only person that did bad s***t on the show was me,’ Scott jokes back saying she has nothing to worry about.

Scott adds: ‘I really have some explaining to do.’
Kim was also married to Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004, and then married third husband Kanye West in 2014.
The show KUWTK – which comes to an end this year – was propelled to success after a sex tape made by Kim and her then-boyfriend Ray J in 2002 was leaked in February 2007.
Talking about how all their babies have been while the show cameras have been rolling, Scott quipped: ‘They were born into it. It must be crazy to be a kid and not even realize you’re on The Truman Show.’
