Kim Kardashian can be seen and heard for the first time talking about her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries in a videotaped interview with the “Kyle and Jackie O” show in Australia. Last night, Kardashian released a statement in which she said her marriage was not a sham, but admitted she got “caught up in the hoopla.”

Sitting next to her sister Khloe Kardashian in a radio studio in Sydney, a sad looking Kardashian said her impending divorce is “a tough situation,” adding, “I think I’m trying to do the best that I can, and it’s actually kind of an escape to come here.”

The sisters are Down Under promoting their Kardashian Kollection handbags. On the radio show, Kardashian echoed the sentiments in her blog post, saying, “I do want to make clear that I would never marry for a TV show, for money, for anything like that. And I think that’s really ridiculous that I have to even defend that, but I guess, you know, that comes along with when you film your wedding for a reality show.”

Kardashian says she’s not ready to date or marry anytime soon. “I think I just want to chill out for a bit,” but acknowledged, “I am a hopeless romantic.”
