The marriage between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries almost didn't happen.
Kim explained that she was already feeling anxious about the relationship before the talk with her mother, saying, "There was all this attention on the wedding, and I thought maybe it was just the pressure of the show giving me this anxiety. My friends told me I just had cold feet, but even the producers said, 'You don't seem happy. You don't have to go through with this.'"
Kris even tried to intervene on her daughter's behalf.
"The night before, my mom pulled me aside, off camera, and was like, 'This isn't it for you. Why don't you go away and I'll handle it?'" Kim said. Ultimately, Kim felt like she had no way out.
"I felt like, if I pulled out now, everyone's going to think I just did it for the show," she explained. "Then afterwards, people were saying, 'You have to stay married for a year,' but I physically couldn't do it. When I made the decision [to divorce], everyone said it was made up for the show. Everyone really wanted to take me down.'"
The couple tied the knot in 2011 and were married for a total of 72 days before filing for divorce. During a visit to Watch What Happens Live earlier this year, Kim explained that it was a 'ticking clock' feeling that led her to get married in the first place.
"I think a lot of girls do go through that where they freak out thinking they're getting old and have to figure it out, all their friends are having kids. It was more of that situation," she said. "But I knew on the honeymoon it wasn't going to work out."
