Kim Kardashian has criticised those who claim she doesn’t really work for a living.
Kim was interviewed for LOVE Magazine and defended her career saying it’s got more substance than some other media jobs and her family’s TV show has lasted longer than some shows that are now considered classics.
Asked whether she’s just an adult star turned TV star, she insists: “Maybe [the tape is] how some people heard about me but I didn’t launch my career off of that. That was 12 years ago, no 13 years ago now, so I just try to move on and put it in the past because I think that everyone in life does things they’re not proud of but you can’t sit and dwell on them forever.”
Asked about Keeping up with the Kardashians, she exclaims, “We’ve had more episodes than ‘I Love Lucy!’ And I’m proud that we give so many people jobs. Like, our lighting guy handing me a key chain last season and said, ‘I just want to thank you — I’ve worked for you guys for eight seasons and you helped me buy a house.’”
She continues of claims she doesn’t have a real job, “So I get a little bit frustrated at people not understanding. Like when they ask, ‘What do you do?’ I mean what an uneducated question! And I just want to help change the perception that being on a reality show is such a negative thing.”
Previously, in the same issue of LOVE, Kim gave an equally defensive answer to what she did for a job. Interviewed by friend Cara Delevingne, Kim said: “When someone asks me, ‘What do you do?’ under my breath I want to say, ‘Ask my f**king bank account what I do.’ But I would never say that to someone’s face.”
