If Keeping Up with the Kardashians(Sundays at 10 pm/ET, E!) is the Brady Bunch of reality shows, Kim Kardashian is the Marcia. Sexy, self-assured and totally sweet, the Beverly Hills bombshell-slash-stylist with the famous friends and to-die-for derriere has weathered her share of scandals. Yet she's still thrilled to be letting it all hang out as the cameras capture her blended family in action for this Sunday's Season 2 premiere.
TV Guide: Unlike some of your pals, such as Paris and Nicole, you aren't really known as a party girl.
Kim Kardashian: Surprisingly, I'm not the biggest partyer. For me, going out is about dressing up. I love the whole go-to-dinner, hang-out-with-my-friends part. And I'm not a big drinker, so if it's going to be one of those nights, I have to be prepared. [Laughs]
TV Guide: What's on tap for Season 2?
You'd be surprised. When the cameras are running, we might plan for certain things, but totally different stuff starts happening. So this time, we [didn't] plan anything.
TV Guide: Your spread in December's Playboy was amazing.
Kardashian: Thank you! They approached me a few times and it wasn't something I wanted to do. But after Hef told me that Marilyn Monroe was on the first cover... [I thought], "I'm not your typical skinny girl," so why not show off that you don't need to be stick-thin to be in [Playboy]?
TV Guide: Are you surprised by how much attention your butt gets?
Kardashian: Seriously, it's insane! Have people not seen Armenian women before? And then the rumors that it's fake? Who gets butt implants?! Just [recently] in a magazine, they said that I had my nose, lips, cheeks and boobs done. Watch me take my bra off and you'll know I haven't had my boobs done! [Laughs]
