If you can’t beat the, join them! New auntie Kim Kardashian tried to fight off the dozens of photographers when she dined at Beso restaurant in L.A. on Tuesday, but eventually she just gave in, gave them a pose and answered some of their questions!

As Kim made her way to join friends for dinner last night, she weighed in on the controversy over Simon Cowell leaving American Idol, E! News reports.

“I don’t know, it’s sad,” Kim said, but then tried to look on the bright side. “We still have Ryan [Seacrest]!”

And Ellen DeGeneres, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi — of course.

Does Kim think Idol is over?

“No, I think people love the show,” she explained. “But he is a big part, so it will definitely be different.”

Kim doesn’t hold hard feelings with Simon though — she even said she would join him as a judge on X-Factor!

Way to keep the peace between the two shows, Kim!
