"It's been a hard couple of months," Kim Kardashian admitted earlier today on national television.
The reality TV star co-hosted "Live! with Kelly" on ABC, and said she was taken back by all the negative publicity she's received due to her botched 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries.
"I really didn't think following my heart would create this much backlash," she told Kelly Ripa. "If you really think about it, if this was a business decision and I really made all that money that everyone was claiming that we made off this wedding, and if the wedding was fake and just for TV, I'm a smart businesswoman, I would have stayed married longer."
