"A little bit. Yeah," she said.

Kim, who is currently promoting the drama "Meet Monica Velour," where she plays a flawed, former porn star, revealed there is another reason to also blame for her romantic life not being picture perfect.

"Writing a book about the female orgasm didn't help my dating career either," she said, referring to "Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm," a book she published in 2002 with her then-husband, Mark Levinson

"Really? You would think that would actually help," Ellen suggested.

"You would think so," Kim said. "Men like to think that they know it all, especially in that department."
