Kim Kardashian revealed during her family’s explosive reunion on Thursday that she wished she had never gotten married to Kris Humphries.
‘I wish I was only married once,’ Kim, 40, said during the E! show titled The Final Curtain that was hosted by Andy Cohen, 53, following the conclusion last week of Keeping Up With The Kardashians after 20 seasons.
Kim recounted that she had cold feet prior to her 72-day marriage to Kris, 36, and said her mother came to her the night before the wedding and told her it was not too late to back out.

Kris Jenner, 65, recalled that she went upstairs to talk to Kim at the wedding rehearsal and told her, ‘If you really don’t want to do this I don’t think you should do it. I think this could be a really bad idea.’
Kim interjected and said ‘what you really said to me was, ‘Go! I’m going to put you in a car, no one will find you, just leave and I’ll handle it.’
The aspiring lawyer said she knew that if she left that she would be known forever as the runaway bride and that ‘it will be a huge joke.’
Andy asked if she partially went through with the wedding because of the show and Kim told him, ‘I would say yes because I felt pressure. I felt that I was going to let everyone down’

She recalled that she thought ‘I think I made the wrong decision.’
Kim said she went to New York after the honeymoon and was ‘miserable.’

She said to the camera that ‘if you have cold feet then it’s not it.’
Andy asked Kim what exactly was the moment when she knew she had to end it with Kris and she said it was when he lined their hotel room with his size 17 shoes.
‘I freaked the f*** out,’ Kim said. ‘I literally got claustrophobic from the shoes.’

Kim admitted that she regrets the way she broke up with him. She said at the time that she did it in the worst way because she couldn’t handle it.
‘I just didn’t know how to deal,’ she said.
When Andy asked if she felt that she owed him an apology, Kim said ‘absolutely. I tried calling him for months.’

Khloe pointed out that Kim saw Kris later at the Beverly Hills Hotel when she was pregnant and he wouldn’t even say hello.
‘I had North in my hand and my big huge belly, I was about to give birth to Saint,’ said Kim of her run in with Kris.
She said he was sitting at the table next to her and that all his friends got up to say hi to her but Kris wouldn’t even look or speak to her.

‘He’s very faith based,’ said Kim of Kris. ‘I’m sure he would have loved to not have a marriage on his record. He wanted an annulment. ‘
Kim said that the only legal way to get an annulment was if fraud was involved.
Kris, she said, marked fraud for the annulment ‘so the whole world wondered what is this fraud.
Faith based: ‘He’s very faith based,’ said Kim of Kris. ‘I’m sure he would have loved to not have a marriage on his record. He wanted an annulment’
‘Did she marry me for a show to the public and that is what the people started to say – is this really fraudulent. If I was mature, I would have wanted the annulment too,’ said Kim.
Kim’s revelation about her marriage with Kris was just one of the bombshells of the the Kardashian-Jenners sit down with Andy that revisited some of the most talked-about moments and unanswered questions from all 20 seasons of KUWTK.
Before the sit-down interview even began, Andy went backstage to alleviate the concerns of the nervous Kardashians.

‘I’ve got to be honest,’ Kim told Andy while her sisters were still getting the final hair and make-up touch ups ‘My mom is a bit nervous.’
‘I know, I know,’ Andy told her. ‘I just want to talk about all of it. If I say something and you’re like f*** you by the way say f*** you.’
Andy then went to reassure Kris. He told her ‘by the way you have been doing this for 20 some years and there has been so much s*** that has happened on the show. So I just want to talk about as much of it as I possibly can.’
The momager: Kris overcame her nervousness and spoke candidly during the reunion
Khloe, 36, rubbed her Kris shoulder ‘we are all going to be there to support you and chime in.’
A producer then asked Kris if she wanted some vodka but she told him ‘no thank you.’
After their glam squad was finished, the entire group walked out together to see Andy’s specially designed KUWTK set. The walls were lined with posters from seasons past and there were mannequins dressed up in some of their signature outfits. Kris, Khloe, Kim, Kylie, Kendall and Kourtney all sat down on white couches, while Andy, in a white suit and tie, sat in a chair in the middle of the family.

Khloe told Kim that she was ‘very Bridgerton.’ Kim responded ‘That is the only way I go now until I go home with the Duke.’
Andy started off by asking Kris if she was wearing one of the 65 outfits that Kim gave her. But no, Kris told him it was not, but she took some ‘Inso’ from Kim in selecting her Vivianne Westwood dress. Kim told Andy she was also wearing a Vivianne Westwood dress.
‘Mom tends to take inspo and copy so we kind of got ready together,’ said Kim

Andy then said ‘hi’ to Kourtney, 42, and said she seemed to be living her best life these days.
‘I am,’ said Kourtney. ‘It’s about living life.’
After saying hi to all the family, Andy said that he had a lot of ground to cover tonight considering the decade that the show has been on television.
‘Between the six of you, you have had nine spinoffs and two of you are billionaires, you have headline making relationships leading to three marriages and three and half divorces, over a dozen disappeared pets, ten grandchildren and nearly 800 million google search results,’ Andy said as his jaw dropping intro.

Andy also said that none of the Kardashian-Jenners had any idea of the questions he was going to ask them and that they had given him no ground rules. ‘So I’m going to go there,’ he said.
‘That’s a next level trust we have for you,’ Kim told him.
Andy asked if anyone was nervous about the show. Khloe told him that she had been anxious. Kourtney also told him that she felt slightly anxious but that maybe a tequila shot would calm her nerves. Kylie, 23, then announced she had already taken one. Andy suggested instead that they get rolling and then ‘we will see what we need.’
Tequila time: Kylie admitted that she had some tequila before the reunion started
Andy’s first question to the family was ‘who wanted the show to go on the most and who wanted it to end the most?’
Kim jumped in and said that ‘I think we can all agree that Kourtney wanted it to end the most.’
Kourtney agreed. ‘At the end, but I was really there for it for a long time,’ she said. Kourtney told Andy she wanted it to end because she felt it wasn’t productive. She also said the lag time between when the taped and when the show aired also contributed to it. ‘It felt like a slightly toxic environment at times,’ she said. ‘We weren’t enjoying it.’

Andy wanted to know why the show was ending if they were coming back on another platform.
Kris told him that it was time to make the decision because their contract was up for renewal. ‘It was a decision – do we sign up for another three or five years or …and I think we were all feeling so overwhelmed.’ She added that when she discussed it with her daughters, Kim said that 20 was a ‘really beautiful number’ and said they should do the last season and then see how they feel.
Next Andy took a Twitter question about what aspect of normal life that they each missed. Kim said going to the grocery store. Kourtney said ‘grocery store and gas station.’ Khloe said it was just the paparazzi everywhere she went that keeps her from going places.

Andy then said to Kim that the irony of it all is that he remembered when Kim came to him and said how badly she wanted to be famous. Andy asked her if she used to call the paparazzi.
Kim denied, but said ‘I knew exactly where they were so if you wanted to be seen. Anytime, I was getting hair and make up for the show there was no way I was going home and watching it off. I would stop off at Robertson. I would stop at the Ivy to pick up something to go even if it was just like some bread to go. Anything, even an empty bag. I would run in and say ‘Did I leave my glasses here.’
She said she could talk about it now because she found it so funny. ‘People need to be more honest in those moments in life when you are super desperate and want that,’ Kim said.

Kylie and Kendall Jenner , 25, said they couldn’t even remember a time before they were famous. Kendall said the fact that they started on the show when they were all so young felt like the show and fame just grew with them.
Andy then asked Kim if thought the show would have been so successful initially without the publicity that surrounded sex tape.
Kim was candid and told him that looking back ‘probably not.’ ‘I think everything happens for a reason, and I really try to live like that. Every time, there is something like a crazy scandal that feels like you can’t breathe. It’s always a lesson that we didn’t even know we had to go through.’

Andy asked her if she had ever thought about that there was a time when she would have to explain it to her kids. She told him that she hasn’t had to yet.
‘Luckily, I think that so many years have gone on and so many things have happened positively that it really erases that. That is something that I have to live with for the rest of my life. That is something that is being held over my head. I try not to have any regrets, but it is probably the one thing that I would wish didn’t exist. If I can erase any of the stupid things, I have done in life, that is probably it,’ she said.
Sex tape: I try not to have any regrets, but it is probably the one thing that I would wish didn’t exist. If I can erase any of the stupid things, I have done in life, that is probably it.’
Andy wanted to know how they felt about it when people said that they were ‘famous for being famous.’
Kris though said they were in fact famous because they had a TV show. Kris said when they started the show Twitter barely even existed. She also said there was no Instagram, no Snapchat, no TikTok. ‘We came along at a time when it was the perfect storm.’ Khloe also said that Kris lost a lot of her friends when the show came out. ‘They shunned you,’ Khloe said to her mom. ‘Now, they all want to be invited to her things.’
Then Andy wanted to get into the logistics of filming because each of the women were both subjects and producers of the show. Kim told him that the basic rule is that everyone has to be comfortable with whatever they are filming. Kim said that producer part of their involvement comes in more in the editing process if someone wants to take something out.

Andy asked if they could remember anything specific that was a ‘point of contention.’ Khloe said the physical fight between Kourtney and Kim was one that some of the family didn’t want included. Khloe also there was an E! Representative on set that day so as Andy pointed out ‘It’s hard then to put it back in the bottle.’
Kylie said also hat her fight with Kendall in Palm Springs over a dress was another one that they didn’t want shown. Kylie said in the moment when they were filming that she thought she wouldn’t never let this this air but months later decided it didn’t seem as bad.
To change the subject, Andy said there is a famous meme online that says ‘the devil works hard, but Kris Jenner works harder.’ Andy said to Kris that people think she is a devilish person that is pulling all the strings behind the scenes and that what she does as the family Momager. Kris said no. Kendall said she has so much respect for her Mom for all that does for them.

Kris said her role as a Momager is one that she wouldn’t trade for anything. Andy asked if she was ‘the brains behind all the stories that come out about the family. Kris told him that most of the time she didn’t even know all the stories that come out. Kim said that it bugs her when something really tragic happens that she would hear people insinuate that her mother was behind it.
‘I think there is much misconception with how we are in relationships,’ said Kris. ‘We are actually such a close [family].’
Andy wanted to know who was the easiest child to manage and which was the hardest. Kris said that Kendall was the easiest, but that Kourtney was the hardest. Kourtney admitted that her answer is ‘no’ to most things.

Through a Twitter question, Andy asked if Kris really took 10% of each of her children’s deals and whether she felt guilty about it. Kris said no she did not feel guilty because she worked really hard. ‘I’m valuable to the deals and the businesses that we create,’ Kris said.
‘Our Mom works so hard and no one, especially at the beginning, believed in us so hard,’ said Khloe. ‘She really did believe in us all that we could do these things and my Mom is giving us our careers and helping us navigate through that and it’s only fair that she gets paid for that.’
Kris said that there are other managers that take more. Andy then wanted to know if the women still felt that the amount of managerial attention Kris gave them correlated to the amount of money they were bringing in.
‘I think we are seriously joking,’ said Khloe.
Just kidding: ‘I think we are seriously joking,’ said Khloe when Andy asked if Kris really paid more attention to the child making the most money
Andy changed topics and asked Kylie how it felt to have the title of ‘youngest self made billionaire.’
‘I don’t wake up in the morning and look at myself in the mirror and say ‘Good morning, self made billionaire”,’ said Kylie.
Andy asked what motivated Kylie to get involved in the make up business. Kylie responded that it started ‘with the insecurity about my lips’ Kylie told Andy that she had really small lips. She said she didn’t think about it until she made out with a guy and he said ‘you are such a good kisser, but you have such small lips.’ Kylie said from that point on she ‘felt unkissable.’
Billionaire talk: ”I don’t wake up in the morning and look at myself in the mirror and say ‘Good morning, self made billionaire”,’ said Kylie
‘I had an insecurity because a guy said something one time and then I got an obsession with make up because I would over line my lips,’ said Kylie. ‘It made me confident.’
Kris said of that guy ‘we should do a lip kit after him.’
Then Andy asked Kylie what was the status of her relationship today with Tyga and she told him ‘we are not friends, but we are ok if I see him out. If I see him out, I always wish him well. I have no bad feelings for him.’
Andy asked how come Travis Scott wasn’t on the show as much. Kylie said that sometimes he just didn’t want to be filmed. Andy then wanted to know why Kylie kept her pregnancy such a secret. She said she had already shared so much of her life at that point and that she was really young .

‘It was just something I needed to go through myself,’ said Kylie.
Kris said it was actually a really joyous time then for the family.
Kim said when you are pregnant that things could get really heightened. She remembered paparazzi almost crashing into their car. Kylie told Andy that she kept it private by just staying inside her house. She said helicopters would circle her house. When Andy asked if marriage was in the cards for her, Kylie told him that she ‘hoped to get married one day.’
Andy then turned his attention to Kim and asked where she was in getting her ‘ESQ.’ Kim said that she will take the baby bar again in June. She said she was confident that she would pass it this time.

Andy’s next question was again to Kim where he said there was a famous line in the show where you said that you wouldn’t buy Kourtney a pair of shoes because you already bought her a career. ‘Do you resent that your siblings don’t give you your due for catapulting them to fame,’ Andy asked. Kim said no, she said that she was actually boring in real life and that she was ‘nothing without my sisters and my family.’
What happened between her and Paris was Andy’s next question. Kim said things just blew up and then they just stopped talking. Kim said ‘she did that interview about me and called my butt fat or something gross.’ Kourtney reminded her ‘cottage cheese in a trash bag.’ Kim said they spoke after that, but that now they are ‘super back cool.’ Kim said she had a lot of respect for Paris and that ‘she definitely put me on.’
‘I’m never too good to not know where I came from,’ said Kim. ‘She opened up my mind to a whole another world.’
Looking on: Kris looked on as Kim talked about the importance of family
Andy wanted to know if being a lawyer for Kim would mean that she would pull back about being so sexy. Kim said there was something powerful about posting a picture of her looking so good at forty. Khloe said that they also share photos pre-pub in group chats to get each other’s perspective on whether or not to post a photo.
Later on, Andy wanted to know when did Kim’s friendship with Kanye West develop into love. Kim said it was six months after he divorce that she called Kanye and said ‘you are not even going to call me to say you told me so?’ Kim said then she met up with Kanye six months later.
‘From this night, I knew it was over,’ said Kim. ‘My marriage to Kanye and my kids was, is so real and lot of love and that to me was my first real marriage.’
Real marriage: ‘My marriage to Kanye and my kids was, is so real and lot of love and that to me was my first real marriage,’ Kim said.
Andy then asked her why she thought her marriage didn’t work out. Kim told him ‘I don’t think I would even say it here on TV.’ She said, though, that it was not just one specific thing that happened ‘on either part.’
‘I think it was just a general difference of opinions on a few things that led to this decision,’ said Kim. ‘In no way would I want someone to think that I didn’t give it my all. We have four kids. There is nothing more than parents or even kids then to see their parents together.’
Kim said she currently has ‘an amazing co-parenting relationship’ with Kanye. She said Kanye and her were friends first and she doesn’t see that ever going away.

‘I will always be Kanye’s biggest fan,’ said Kim. ‘He’s the father of my kids. Kanye will always be family.’
Kim told Andy she could see herself dating a non-celebrity. She said what she was looking for years ago is completely different than who she is today. She said now she values privacy and wanted a relationship that is real. Andy asked her if the rumors were true that she was dating Van Jones, 52, but Kim denied it. She said is also not dating Maluma.
Andy asked Kourtney who she thought handled fame the best and the worst in the family. Kourtney said she thought Kim handled it the best but that it ‘gets to Khloe.’ Khloe said she doesn’t remember what exactly was the breaking point for her but that after ‘years and years of being this punching bag’ and personal attacks over how she looked affected her.
‘Fifteen years of the same commentary,’ said Khloe.

Andy asked Kim how the robbery affected her. Kim said as far as jewelry that if she is wearing something it is either borrowed or fake. She said she has all expensive items taken from her home and that she can’t sleep if there is jewelry or money in her safe.
‘On a positive note, I am a completely different person because of it, in the best way. ‘ Kim said. ‘I had to have the coolest car, the best rims, the best outfit and I thought that I was the s*** because of that . The things I valued before that happened were genuinely completely different than what I value now. It’s fun to get dressed up and all here, but things don’t make me.’
Andy then asked Khloe if she felt in later seasons that she carried the show. Khloe said that she and Kim have felt that they give so much to the show. Khloe said that Kourtney would hold back her dating relationship from the show after what happened with her relationship with Scott Disick, 38.
Andy wanted to know for Kourtney if she thought her relationship with Scott would have turned out differently if it hadn’t been on camera. ‘Probably,’ Kourtney told him.

Andy asked them if it was true if they ever gave their friends fake stories to try to weed out ‘the rat.’ Kim said she gave out fake pictures of North and then one of those photos leaked onto TMZ but she didn’t know exactly who did it.
Andy wanted to know how long Kris had been with Corey Gamble, 40. Kris told him six years and it was because Corey is ‘just a really great guy who brings a lot of joy to my life.’ She added ‘I think it’s just meant to be.’
Kris also told Andy that she still has fond memories of her time with her ex on the show. She said it was meant to be and ‘what was meant to be out of it was Kendall and Kylie.’ She said ‘that I am so grateful for.’

Andy asked her if she would have split up from him if not for the transition. Kris said ‘that’s an interesting question. I think so.’
Kris said she didn’t know that Caitlyn planned a transition.
The reunion will continue next week with the second and final part of The Final Curtain on the E! network.
