On Thursday’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion episode, the Kardashian-Jenners revealed some of their best-kept secrets, including how Kim Kardashian was almost a ‘runaway bride’.

Kim explained to host, Andy Cohen, how she got cold feet before her 2011 wedding to her first husband, Kris Humphries, but felt she couldn’t back out. “I used all our production money on the wedding. I felt pressured; I felt like I was going to let everyone down,” she said.

Speaking of the wedding, her mother Kris Jenner said she encouraged her daughter to call things off. "I said, 'Listen, if you really don’t want to do this, I don’t think you should do it'.”

However, Kim admitted she feared how people would react, “I thought, ‘Ok, we’re filming this for a TV show. If I leave, I’m going to be known as the runaway bride forever. It’s going to be a huge joke.’”

After the wedding, the pair jetted off on their Italian honeymoon, where Kim realised she’d made a mistake. “I was like, ‘Sh*t, I think I made the wrong decision.’ And then I went back to New York, and I was miserable,” said Kim.

The couple announced their divorce just 72 days after saying ‘I do’.

Kim also revealed her ‘first real marriage’ was the one she shared with Kanye West. The pair announced their divorce earlier this year, and although Kim didn’t open up about the details of the split on the reunion itself, she put things down to a ‘difference of opinion.’

"I wish I was only married once," she concluded.
