“I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me,” Kardashian explained. “I don’t want to start crying, but I feel like that was so meant to happen to me. I’m such a different person. It was meant to happen to me. I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things.”
“I was definitely materialistic before, not that there’s anything bad with having things and working hard to get those things and I’m really proud of everyone around me that’s successful,” she added. “But I’m so happy that my kids get this me and that this is who I’m raising my kids [to be]. Because I just don’t care about that stuff anymore, I really don’t. It’s just not worth it.”
“Knowing the information that I know now, they had been following me for two years,” she continued. “They had been hearing interviews that I did getting excited about this jewelry or this jewelry, and saying it’s real. It’s not to say that I’ll never wear jewelry again or anything like that. I truly don’t know if I’d ever feel comfortable, I truly don’t know if I’d ever wear real jewelry again. My whole life has changed in terms of how I travel and what security.”
