By - Crossmap On June 26, 2012
In an exclusive interview on Oprah's Next Chapter, Kim Kardashian explained to the host that she is nothing like the way she is portrayed in the media. The 31-year old reality star says she is misunderstood.
"I hardly drink, I go to church on Sundays," Kardashian said to Oprah Winfrey on Part 2 of the interview series. "I'm so far removed from my image."

The young media mogul and girlfriend of Kanye West came into the spotlight when a sex tape was released and publicized. However, Kardashian has been spending this year attending Life Change Community Church in Agoura Hills, Calif. She has been photographed with her mother, Kris Jenner, attending service. The reality star has even tweeted to fans about her involvement in Bible Study.
"On [my] way to church with the girls," Kardashian tweeted before attending a "New Year's" service in January. "I want to start a bible study group with my friends."
"Happy Easter," Kardashian tweeted on the Christian holiday that is to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. "Up early today, heading to church with the family, then brunch."
Kardashian continues to be public about her church activities. After the star was hit with a sack of flour while on the red carpet, Kardashian also took to her blog to express how important church is to her.
"I would be lost if I didn't go to church to reflect back on my whole week," Kardashian wrote in March.
In spite of Kardashian's vocal attitude, many still question whether the media mogul is sincere about her beliefs. Internet radio host, Chris Rosebrough, of the show "Fighting for the Faith," expressed the possibility of Kardashian's phoniness. He devoted a segment to the topic in March called: "Kim Kardashian's designer spirituality, is it biblical Christianity?"
"There's a lot of designer spirituality out there that parades as Christianity when it isn't," Rosebrough said during the show.
"Christianity is not the kind of thing that you smorgasbord together for the things you want to craft for your own Beverly Hills style spirituality."
However, Kardashian continues to express that she was raised with Christian traditions and customs. She said in an interview with Piers Morgan in 2011 that she gives tithes to Life Change Community Church.
"I give 10% away to the church and that's what I was taught," Kardashian told Morgan. "Every year, absolutely."
In 2011, Jenner also confirmed that the Kardashian-Jenner family has maintained faith.
"Even a family as crazy as ours can have a great relationship with God," Jenner said.
