Khloe Kardashian is ready for a fresh start. The 29-year-old long time reality starlet had a tough 2013, filing for divorce from Lamar Odom, who has been battling a drug problem. News of his addiction rocked the couple, who married in 2009 after just three weeks of dating. Since then Kardashian has gotten her groove back (sorta kinda). Late last year, she was rumored to be dating LA Dodgers star Matt Kemp and has been hanging tight with rapper The Game. The April Cosmopolitan cover girl talks with mom Kris Jenner (who conducted the interview) about her family, having no regrets in her marriage and being happy. Peep the excerpts below.
Holding her personal issues in:
I’m not a big ‘cry on a shoulder’ person. I’m very introverted when it comes to my own stuff. Everyone has issues, and I’m not someone who likes to burden people. I got into a car accident yesterday, and no one knew until hours later. I said, ‘Oh, my back hurts.’ If it had been Kim, she would have called everyone saying, ‘Help! I’m stranded!’ That’s just how I am. I hold things in. I don’t know why.
Having her family as a support system:
We live in the public eye, so if one of us makes a mistake, it affects everyone, which makes me think about what I’m doing in life more. I have such a great support system here, we’re so judged when we leave these walls that we try to never do that to one another here.
Being criticized for her marriage failing:
People hate us for showing stuff and they hate us when we say, ‘Fine, we won’t show it anymore.’ I don’t have any regrets. I wouldn’t change a thing. You learn as you go.
Thoughts on mom, Kris and stepfather, Bruce being separated:
There was no scandal. There was no bad blood. You’re just happier apart. You are nicer to each other now. You get excited to see each other at dinners. It makes me sad that people think Bruce is no longer a part of my life. I talk to him every day! I consider him my second father.
Being happy and living for today:
I live for the moment. If you think too far in the future, you might get disappointed or set the bar too low, it sucks at times, but everything happens for a reason, no matter how s—-y your circumstances are. To say where I want to be in 10 years…I have no idea. I just know that I want to be happy and smiling.
Wanting kids in the future:
I love kids. I hope and pray I have kids when the time is right.
The issue hits stands on March 4.
