Kim Kardashian's televised wedding extravaganza to Kris Humphries didn't exactly end in happily ever after, and the reality star says she's learned her lesson when it comes to her next nuptial ceremony.
"It had always been my dream to have a big wedding, and when people said that I'd made it over the top for the ['Keeping Up with The Kardashians'], that was just me -- I am over the top," Kim told England's Tatler magazine's November issue, as excerpted by MTV News. "But the next time, I want to do it on an island with just my friends and family and that's it."
The 31-year-old beauty posed in a white dress reminiscent of a wedding gown for the magazine, and addressed rumors claiming her highly-publicized marriage to the basketball player -- which ended after only 72 days together -- was merely a set up in hopes of garnering higher ratings.
"That is just not the person I am. Who would honestly get married for ratings? It's not like the ratings had dropped and we needed a boost," she said. "Never mind other people's emotions -- who would mess with their own emotions in that way?"
Adding, "And for me to do it and have it not work out was the most embarrassing thing."
As for life with her current beau, rapper Kanye West, Kim said she's over the moon.
"It's so nice to have a best friend in this game who understands everything you're going through," she said of Kanye, who she's been dating since the spring. "It's good to be aware that he definitely doesn't want anything from me too, because he understands the business.
"I can't even think about being with anyone else than the man I'm with," she added.
