Los Angeles—Kim Kardashian called a press conference yesterday to formally announce her New Year’s Resolution for 2012: To lead a more private life. She also posted this resolution on her Twitter account, Facebook page and nearly-defunct Myspace account.
She said this newfound privacy will be showcased on her E! television program, and she hopes to prove to the American public just how private she’s being in weekly press conferences throuought the upcoming year.
“I really, really learned a hard lesson last year during my marriage to Reg- I mean, my husband,” Kardashian said. “And it is my sincere hope that you all will join me in my journey as I strive to be a more private person.”
Kardashian said she’s sure she will be able to count on her family in this new, challenging endeavor, and that several episodes of her TV show will show heart-to-heart conversations between herself and her two sisters, who absolutely made no such resolution.
“I’ve also scheduled a 10-day vacation in May in Cabo,” Kardashian told the assembled press. “I know that not all of you can go to my press conference that week, but hopefully enough of you can go so that you’ll be able to see and tell the rest of the press that I’m sticking to my resolution.”
Kardashian said she understands this decision might come as a shock to her fans, but hopes they will respect her wishes, and wanted them to be rest assured that any life-altering moments in her life will be shared at her weekly press conferences.
Kardashian said she’s had success with other New Year’s Resolutions she’s made in the past, including the ones she made for 2010, to eat less chili cheese fries and to not make any more sex tapes.
“Both of those went really, really well,” Kardashian said. “Even though they were both very, very hard to stick to. But I did it. And here’s to 2012!”
