Shannon Sharpe addressed the idea of dating Kim Kardashian during a recent interview with TMZ. The NFL legend admitted that, even if Kardashian pursued him, he wouldn't be interested. Sharpe says that both of them are too busy for it to ever work.

"Kim has enough going on," Sharpe told the outlet. "She's an outstanding businesswoman and what she's been able to do. That family is amazing but I got too much on my plate. She has too much on her plate and plus I'm too private of a guy. I don't want to live a public life."

As for what he'd do if Kardashian texted him, Sharpe replied: "I'm gonna figure out who gave her my number because we don't travel in the same circles. I think she's amazing in what she's been able to do. I'm happy for her, but I'm good." He also clarified that, just because he's not interested in Kardashian, doesn't mean he's not open to dating in general. "I'm not gonna say that, but right now, my focus is on my media company and trying to do the best that I can with that. So, right now, that gets most of my attention," he explained.
