KIM KARDASHIAN went au naturel for Allure Magazine where she vowed she’d be more private (read: without the TV cameras) with her next relationship.

Is this Kimmy‘s way of saying she regrets putting her wallet above her heart during the course of her 72-day union with New Jersey Nets forward, Kris Humphries?

The reality show starlet put on a (nearly) bare face for her celebrity photo shoot for Allure’s March issue where she talked about working on a fresh start, because hey…she considers herself forever the optimist.

“Will I be more private of a person? Am I more guarded? Absolutely,”

Kim declared in an exclusive interview with the magazine.

“But, also, I’m a firm believer that my show is who I am.”

Does that mean she still hasn’t learned any lessons from her extremely brief marriage?

“[The experience] definitely made me want to be more private with my relationship, whenever I choose to get into one again. I’m not ready, but when that time comes, I’ll be more cautious about who I let my world open up to,”

Kim continued.

And for a person who spends most of her time “baring” intimate details of her life to a TV audience, maybe that may mean doing a more thorough background check on her next beau to ensure they aren’t liable to come after her for fraud like her ex-spouse, Kris Humphries is doing.

You think?
