We all know how awful Kim Kardashian’s divorce proceedings have been, but there’s still far worse things in life, right? Not according to the former Mrs. Humphries. In an interview with The Guardian, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star compared her recent marital struggles to the hardships faced by an 18-year-old cancer patient. Umm, how are these two situations at all alike?
If there’s one constant about reality stars, it’s that they want us to know that they too have difficult lives. And that is sometimes true, but a few said celebs are not very good at getting the message across.
The perfect example? Kim Kardashian’s recent blunder during an interview with The Guardian. While she was talking about the decision to film her wedding to Kris Humphries, she dropped in a little bombshell: ”…we [Kris and Kim] decided to film for the wedding. And that was a decision that he and I made together. But I think that, with any decisions in life, like, I spoke to a girl today who had cancer and we were talking about how this is such a hard thing for her, but it taught her a big lesson on who her friends are and so much about life. She’s 18. And I was like, that’s how I feel.”
Following the predictably negative media reaction, Kim is trying to smooth things over with an additional explanation. After blaming the media for taking her statement out of context, she wrote the following on her blog: “In a recent magazine interview, I told of how I had called a female fan who was battling cancer, and she told me how she had watched the show and seen how I had faced my own struggles, and had been inspired by how I had found the courage to change a situation that was making me unhappy. She told me how her life had completely changed when she was diagnosed, and a lot of friends had deserted her, which is something I said I could relate to. In no way was I comparing my own experiences to that of a cancer patient. I was merely talking about how there are times in your life, and everyone goes through them, when you find out who loves you enough to stand by you through thick and thin.”
Well, that clears things up a bit. We’re glad the fan was able to find comfort, but this still feels like a slip-up on Kim’s part. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!
