Kim Kardashian
has a lot on her mind and is shedding most of it for her sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey.

First subject is that she needs to defend her quick "all-in-love" romance with Kanye West.

Explained Kim: "We met almost a decade ago, we've known each other for a very long time, we've been friends for six or seven years," she said of the Grammy-winning rapper, 35. "I don't know why it took us so long to get together. I think we've always had an attraction to each other, but we've always been in other relationships or it wasn't the right timing."

And on how fast it took them to get together after he split from hubby Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage.

"One day it [the relationship with West] just happened," she offered. "It took me by surprise."

And no publicity stunt this time around?

"It's your heart you're playing with," she said. "I couldn't sacrifice my heart for a publicity stunt."

When it comes to dating athletes, for witch Kim has dated many including Reggie Bush, Miles Austin, and Kris Humphries she says that she is done.

"Unfortunately I'm done dating athletes I think," she told her family. "So for [stepsisters] Kendall and Kylie you can get a nice up-and-coming golfer."

Sure. Does she remember Tiger Woods?!!
