(Newser) – Poor, poor Kim Kardashian has had her “fairy tale” ideas about marriage shattered, she reveals to Glamour in an exclusive post-divorce-announcement interview she did with her sisters. “I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed,” she says. “I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic. … Maybe my fairy tale has a different ending than I dreamed it would. But that’s OK.”

She goes on to explain that “what I want isn’t possible,” to which the most reasonable Kardashian of them all—Khloé—notes, “What, a guy on a white horse coming to get you? That doesn’t happen!” But no, Kim wants something simpler: “I always wanted what Mom and Dad had.” Except that, as Khloé points out, “Mom and Dad got a divorce.” Kim goes on to sigh that perhaps she’s not even “supposed to have kids and all that. … Maybe I won’t have any. Maybe I’ll just be a good aunt.” Awesome Khloé response No. 3: “Oh my God. Don’t be dramatic all of a sudden!” (Should you wish to engage in some schadenfreude, Jezebel has a great montage of Kim-and-Kris-fighting clips from the Sunday premiere of Kim and Kourtney Take New York.)
