Not one to pick nits, but Kim Kardashian is about as much a “working mom” as I am a billionaire industrialist playboy who dresses up as a bat and fights a rogues gallery of evil villains.
For some unknown reason Kim Kardashian was on CNBC’s Closing Bell when she was asked about being able to have a successful career and raise a family at the same time. Why? And who the f-ck asked her that? They should be fired immediately. Sorry… Kim’s response…
“I mean, I think that’s just not really like a positive outlook and for me, like my mom kind of taught us girls that we could have it all. You know, she works hard. She taught us that if you work hard, it’s just all about prioritizing and I think that, yeah, it could get tough and after you have a baby, there are so many times when I just didn’t want to get up and work on something and I just wanted to be home with my baby, but, you know, for me, and I think I can speak for my sisters, it makes us feel good when we are out working and we can provide something for our friends and products that, you know, we can’t find that we really want. And it just makes you feel productive. So if anyone really feels like they can’t do it all, I feel like it’s a little bit discouraging to say that, even if I couldn’t and it wasn’t possible, I would try. And I would, you know, try my best to do it all.”
Of course the world’s most famous porn star was only on CNBC (a NEWS channel) because she was promoting her new line of kid’s clothing. I guess that qualifies as “working.” Oh, remind me to never, EVER watch CNBC ever again. Jesus wept.
