“I’ll be pregnant by the time I’m 30…hopefully.”

Kim Kardashian interview
By E.C. Gladstone

Many see Kim Kardashian as a one-dimension media personality. But after having talked with her and seen her in work publicity modes, I have a different opinion. I think Kardashian has the insight and drive to go as far as she wants to: the next Oprah, perhaps. Don’t believe me? Read on…

EG: Everyone seems to know so much about you…

KK: But it’s so wrong.

EG: It seems like you life is your job

KK: That’s what I should say, when people say ‘what’s your job, what do you do? “my life’

EG: We’re here at a photo shoot—something that to me seems like a mixture of tedium and anxiety. And you you’ve said you love them.

KK: If I could do it every day I would. I have a book for my house, on my coffee table, my photos printed out 11×14. I’m not vain at all! I look at pictures I did years ago. I used to model as a kid, 7-8, I would do the Barbie ad campaigns. I have pictures of me at Venice Beach roller skating with all the Barbie girls. The girl from Wonder Years, Winnie [Danica McKellar] she would do it.

EG: I’ve read many places that you’re a big bowling fan. Is that serious?

KK: I really am into bowling. I went last week. I like Lucky Strike [in Hollywood], but I also like Pins in the Valley, connected to Jerry’s Deli. I got everyone for Christmas their own ball last year. I got my boyfriend [Reggie Bush] a clear ball with a skull in it, cracked with blood dripping. I got my sister a black and white swirly thing…

EG: When did u become obsessed with bowling?

KK: It’s kind of the thing that Reggie and I do together, especially in New Orleans. We have bowing parties, we make up teams. You know what I’m going to do for Christmas this year? I’m going to get everyone bowling shirts, make up teams, girls against boys or something. I became obsessed with bowling when I worked at my dad’s office on Ventura Blvd. next to Pins, I worked there for 7 years, and one of my jobs is I had to pick up my brother from school. He went to Buckley right across the street, so I had to take him to Jerry’s and he had to do his homework before he could go bowling. So every single day, he would go bowling until my dad was ready to take him home. So my brother is like the best bowler ever. I had to go back to work so I couldn’t really bowl, but I’d sneak it in every once in a while.

EG: You were doing music licensing with your dad’s business, Movie Tunes, you had this whole other life, a career going, then you were a stylist, got married, then all of a sudden you started getting noticed for…

KK: Odd things. Going on dates with people, hanging out with people.

EG: You could’ve just said ‘that’s not my life,’ but instead you decided to go with it.

KK: I decided, I felt like opportunities were coming my way, people were asking ‘hey, will you shoot the cover of this magazine…’ I don’t really get it, why do you want me? I don’t act, I don’t sing. And I sat down with my mom and said what should I do? I would love to model. Girls always dream of modeling…

EG: And you had done it as a kid

KK: Yeah, but they made me stop for school. And I was working in my dad’s office, things I was doing were deadline based, and I’d be ebaying all these clothes. I’m so into fashion, all my friends are into fashion, and this whole lifestyle is very fashion driven. That’s what I love to do. Before I did anything I had a closet full of stuff with the tags on, and my sisters would be like ‘where are you going?’ And I said, one day I’m gonna have somewhere this will be perfect for… I had this vision. So when this opportunity came up to be a spokesperson for a jeans company, and I hadn’t done anything, I said ‘why not?’ It’s financially a good move, why wouldn’t I do it, one photo shoot’s more than my whole [annual] salary at my dad’s company.
