Kim Kardashian: Why I Won’t End Up Like Paris Hilton

Kim Kardashian's frenemy Paris Hilton was arrested over the weekend for felony cocaine possession — her third link to drugs this summer.

How has Kardashian, 30, managed to stay out of trouble?

"I've never been a drinker, I've never gotten into drugs," she said on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Tuesday. "You know, I think I have such a close family. I think, you know, at a young age. I think you know my sisters do enough drinking to kind of fill up the whole family.

"From a young age, my dad made it very clear that, 'OK, you're the responsible one and you have to watch your sister, and (he) taught me how to drive when I was 14 in case my sister or her friends were going to be drinking and I always had permission to drive," continued Kardashian (whose younger sister Khloe was arrested for DUI in 2007). "You know, I had to call him from the destination and the final place. I always felt this sense of pride that he had in me that I was the responsible one so I always wanted to make him proud. And I hate the taste of alcohol."

She does, however, indulge in a White Russian occasionally.

"I said at 30 I'm gonna at least have a drink to lighten-up 'cause my sisters say I'm so boring," she told Leno. "So I tried a White Russian a few months ago. If I have one, it tastes like chocolate milk and it's kind of amazing. So every once and a while, but I'm 30 so it's OK."
