Hollywood socialite Kim Kardashian has been quite vocal about what she hopes viewers will take from her new reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.  She has claimed that she wants the public to see how “normal” she and her wealthy family really are, and that she is far from the “party girl” stereotype, saying she doesn’t “even drink alcohol.”

Moreover, becoming the cover girl for Playboy‘s December issue apparently does not indicate that she is a wild child, as she told Us Weekly that “it’s not a nude photo-shoot by any stretch.”

“It is not as revealing as some people might want. I keep it classy and covered up,” Kardashian said.  “I do bare my whole butt.  And a little bit of my chest.  But that’s it.  It was something that I was really nervous about doing at first and this is the first time I am talking about it.”

Kardashian, who celebrated her 27th birthday with a big bash at Les Deux at Los Angeles, said she even consulted her family about her participation in Playboy magazine.

“I consulted the whole family and I decided this is the way I would have wanted it to come out,” the Kardashians star said.

While Kim Kardashian’s parents – the late Robert Kardashian and Kris Kardashian, who is now married to Olympic medalist Bruce Jenner – are celebrities in their own right, it was her close relationship with fellow Hollywood socialite Paris Hilton (The Simple Life) that has pushed her into the spotlight.  However, the two have not been seen together in more recent times.

“I love Paris. We grew up together, but friends drift apart and we just don’t hang out like we used to,” Kardashian explained. “Maybe someday we will again.”

She has, however, remained close friends with NFL quarterback Reggie Bush, though she insists their friendship has not blossomed into anything romantic.

“We’re really close friends.  He’s such an amazing guy!  But between me being busy with the new show, and his being in the middle of the football season, it’s not like I have time to dedicate myself to a relationship right now anyway,” she told Us Weekly.
