Kim Kardashian (and the rest of them) stopped by Oprah‘s Next Chapter* last night to explain that if you don’t watch her on television or follow her on Twitter or join her Bible study group or buy her ShoeDazzle shoes… she’ll die. She’ll just fucking die. She’ll cease to exist like all the faeries if children stopped believing in them.

Anyway, it sounds like Oprah played softball with Kim, despite asking her about that sham marriage and the subsequent media feeding frenzy:

Specifically, she asked if this new tryst was all a publicity stunt, as some naysayers have speculated about both this relationship and her short marriage to Kris Humphries.

“It’s your heart you’re playing with,” Kim said in response. “I couldn’t sacrifice my heart for a publicity stunt.”

It would be remarkable if, at this point, Kim genuinely thought people will buy this explanation. Unless, of course, she means that she can’t legally sacrifice her heart for a publicity stunt because she’s licensed out so much of it that she has to run any and all sacrifice-related decisions past some sort of board of directors? That would make sense.

*We have absolutely no idea what this is.
