Kardashian Thanksgiving!

The love lives of all three Kardashian sisters have played out for the world to see both the good and the bad moments. Given Kim’s recent filing for divorce, the January issue of Glamour — where the sisters Kardashian all open up about their personal lives and their philosophies on love — couldn’t come at a more appropriate time.

While posing for a photo shoot ringing in the new year, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe all talk love with the magazine, and Kim especially opens up, saying that she she needs “to not live in a fairy tale” any longer. Check out the photos from the shoot in the gallery, and then see below for some of the more interesting quotes!

After Kim admits that she’s a “hopeless romantic,” she’s urged to go into more detail about the statement, and sisters Khloe and Kourtney both chime in.

Kim: It means that I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.
Khloé: I love Kim’s belief in love and the fact that she feels so strongly about it. She has that dream every girl has.
Kim: Well, I don’t think I have it right now.
Khloé: Which is fine, but I’m your sister and I know why you don’t have it right now. But I know you will get it again.
Kim: I hope I do. But by then I hope maybe I’m a little bit more realistic.

Kim goes on to say that she’s now realized “what I want isn’t possible,” adding:

I always wanted what Mom and Dad had. And at first I was like, I want six kids. Then I went down to four, then I was down to three, and now I’m like, maybe I won’t have any. Maybe I’ll just be a good aunt … At this moment in my life, I feel like maybe I’m not supposed to have kids and all that … That’s how I feel. Maybe my fairy tale has a different ending than I dreamed it would. But that’s OK.
