Kim lets it be known she is still all about getting married and having kids, or at least the kid part. Sister Kourtney Kardashian is pregant with her second child out of wedlock with partner Scott Disick.

“Do I want kids of my own? Absolutely. But I don’t know if that’s what’s meant for me. Maybe I’ll just work, work, work, and not think about it,” she told the magazine. Khloé joked with me and said, ‘Will you be my surrogate?'”

For the moment, however, Kim wants to stay focused on her career. “I think I have a couple more years when I just want my body to myself. At 35, I promise I’ll consider it,” she said.

Kim also expressed regret about her blow out $18 million wedding. Critics say she staged the marriage just to cash in on the product endorsements and advertising on her two-hour wedding television special.

“[The experience] definitely made me want to be more private with my relationship, whenever I choose to get into one again. I’m not ready, but when that time comes, I’ll be more cautious about who I let my world open up to,” she said.

Kim has been reported to be fishing around for a boyfriend to counter reports that she is radioactive because of her disastrous marriage.
