In Kim Kardashian's first television appearance since she filed for divorce from Kris Humphries, the reality star told an Australian morning show that she made her decision based on gut instincts.
"You just have to listen to your intuition, and follow your heart," she said. "There's no right or wrong thing to do."

The trip to Australia was previously planned to promote a line of handbags with Kim's sister Khloe. Kim said she was trying to stay focused on her work despite the things happening in her personal life. "I wanted to stick with my commitment to come out here to Australia," she said. "Of course I do want some time to myself, and it's a tough thing to go through. But we're getting through it. That's really all I can do."Kardahsian also commented on the attacks suggesting she profited from the TV wedding. "What upsets me most is that there's been, from the start, so many rumors of money and dollar signs — so much of it not being true," Kardashian said. "It's what you get for living your life so publicly on a reality show. I get that... that comes along with the territory. But that also teaches me I kind of want to step back a little bit."

Meanwhile, E!, the network that airs Kardashian's reality show (and her four-hour wedding special aired), announced that the divorce will not have any impact on the network's relationship with the reality TV family, according to The Wall Street Journal
."I don't even know if Kim has had a chance to emotionally process this the way that she needs to," Suzanne Kolb, president of E! Entertainment, said. "I don't have any indication that this is going to change her career path."The network also said reports that the 72-day marriage was a made-for-TV sham are "absolutely false." However, the network did shuffle its scheduled re-airing of the wedding special this week. E! originally planned to air the wedding on Wednesday and Thursday during prime time, but has since moved Part 2 to Thursday at 5/4c. The episode will open with an announcement to alert viewers of the divorce.When asked about the decision to rerun the nuptials after the divorce was filed, Kolb said, "We are a topical network and this is a topic at the moment. When it first aired, both parts of Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event
attracted more than 4 million viewers — big numbers for a cable network."
