Kim Kardashian knows her time with "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" is coming to an end. After putting five years into the reality show, she says she's leaving after Season 9.

Her recent Dujour magazine cover story confirms that "after season 9, [Kardashian] says, she's done." Of course, there's a chance she might change her mind by the time that day comes around, but -- as Dujour puts it -- she "doesn't ensure longevity by being inflexible."

"I think there's always an evolution of, you know, what you want to do in life," she says. "It's all about finding things that really excite you and motivate you and spark you all over again. I'm realizing that no matter what, if you go into something with all these expectations and plans, once you're actually living it, it could be completely different."

It could be that her decision to make her private life more private has something to do with her boyfriend Kanye West and their unborn child. "My boyfriend has taught me a lot about privacy. I'm ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. I'm realizing everyone doesn't need to know everything. I'm shifting my priorities," she says.
