With a reputation for whirlwind romances with both celebrities and the media, Kim Kardashian was in the hot seat on Sunday when Oprah Winfrey pressed the reality star’s current flame, Kanye West on “Oprah’s Next Chapter.”

“Is Kanye West your new fairy tale?” Oprah asked.

“I’ve known him for a really long time. We’ve been friends for six or seven years so it’s very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understand, has gone through similar things,” Kardashian explained about her relationship, before adding that “We’ve always had an attraction for each other but we’ve always been in other relationships or it wasn’t the right timing. One day it [the relationship with West] just happened.”

Kardashian had obviously heard the murmurs that their relationship was a fauxmance, and that she was doing it only to grab some press.

“It’s your heart you’re playing with,” she said to Oprah. “I couldn’t sacrifice my heart for a publicity stunt.”
