She filed to divorce her third husband Kanye West back in February.
And enough time had past that Kim Kardashian didn’t mind some self-deprecating jokes as she got the audience laughing at Kardashian family friend Simon Huck’s pre-wedding party on Friday night.
The 41-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star joked at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood that she wasn’t the ideal person to be addressing Huck and his fiancé Phil Riportella as she confessed she hadn’t ‘really figured out’ marriage after her failed unions to Damon Thomas, Kris Humphries and Kanye West.
A comedian in the making: Kim Kardashian, 41, got an uproarious laugh out of the crowd at her friend Simon Huck’s pre-wedding party in West Hollywood on Friday night
Kim had all eyes on her in a chic royal blue suit with long sleeves and matching gloves that complemented many of the enveloping Balenciaga ensembles she has worn recently.
She wore large jeweled earrings that looked like glittering ear muffs and had her raven locks tied back in a tight bun.
The reality star took center stage at the party in a short video posted to Instagram by journalist and fashion insider Derek Blasberg.
His video started just after Kim had made a joke that completely enveloped the room in laughter.
‘When Simon asked me to talk, I was a little bit confused,’ she began as she tried to talk over the chuckles, ‘because I haven’t really figured out this marriage thing myself, so I don’t know what kind of advice he thinks I’m going to give to you guys tonight.’

Self-deprecating: She joked about her three divorces. ‘I haven’t really figured out this marriage thing myself, so I don’t know what kind of advice he thinks I’m going to give to you guys tonight,’ she said to more laughter
Simon seemed to be loving her speech, and he could be seen rocking back and forth with laughter while Phil stood next to him just off Kim’s side.
In another video from Tracy Romulus, the chief marketing officer of Kim’s fashion and cosmetics brands, Kim added a more heart-felt coda to her speech.
‘I will say, I have learned a lot, and I have some tips for you guys — like aesthetically — of what I think is super important,’ she continued.
‘Like little details, like when you guys are getting married and the guy is officiating you. Right when you’re done and you guys are gonna kiss, the guy is always in the back of the picture. Or there’s a microphone right there,’ she said, adding that the awkward figure ‘ruins all the pictures.’
‘And sometimes that’s all you’ve got,’ she added knowingly.
But Kim just focused on superficial details because she know her pals were a strong match for each other.
‘I have known you, Simon, for 15 plus years,’ she added. ‘Phil, I’ve known you for a long time, and I know that this is going to work. I know real love when I see it.’

Kim spoke from the heart out of experience after three different weddings, all of which have ended in divorce.
In 2000, the social media star eloped with music producer Damon Thomas when she was only 19, while he was 10 years her senior.
In 2018, Kim claimed on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she had been high on ecstasy when she married Thomas.
‘I did ecstasy once and I got married,’ she told her sister Kendall Jenner. ‘I did it again, I made a sex tape. Like, everything bad would happen.’
Thomas filed for divorce in 2003, and Kim claimed in court filings that he had forced her to quit her job at a clothing store so that her ex-boyfriend couldn’t contact her there.
She also claimed that he became violent early in the marriage and punched her multiple times, though he has denied the domestic violence accusations.

Kim later got engaged to NBA player Kris Humphries in May 2011, after striking up a relationship in October of the previous year.
The couple married in August 2011, and the ceremony was broadcast on a two-part KUWTK episode.
However, Kim infamously filed for divorce after only 72 days, which led fans and critics to mock the union as a sham, though she denied that it was a fake marriage for publicity.
Kim hadn’t completely dissolved her marriage to Humphries when she began dating Kanye West in 2012.
They married in 2014 and launched a creative partnership that helped elevate the stature of both figures.
The couple also welcomed four children: North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
But the marriage became strained in recent years amid the rapper’s struggles with mental illness and bizarre behavior, including a doomed presidential campaign, and Kim filed for divorce in February.

Kim’s next step on her whirlwind weddings tour followed her surprise appearance at Paris Hilton’s Bel-Air wedding to Carter Reum.
The shapewear mogul, who was Paris’ assistant and stylist before breaking out on her own after the release of her sex tape and the start of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, arrived just 20 minutes before the start of the ceremony with Kimora Lee Simmons.
Kim referenced her old days working for Paris on her outfits in a fun photo she shared to Instagram showing her lifting up the heiress’ flower-covered lace train.
She also couldn’t help but show off her sizzling strapless Rick Owens gown.
The all-black look featured bodice cutouts over her chest and back, while she added some thick black Balenciaga hoop earrings to frame her impeccably made-up face.
