Kim Kardashian Compares Her Divorce Drama to a Teen Having Cancer

Say What!? 18

kim kardashianKim Kardashian has said some ridiculous things in her day, but this quote just might take the cake. The 31-year-old reality star recently compared her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries ... to an 18-year-old girl with cancer.

During an interview with The Guardian, Kim was asked if she felt pressure to get married to Humphries in order to keep her audience engaged, and -- brace yourself -- here was her answer:

Kim said: "Not really. We had done filming our season at that point, so we 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."

WOW. I mean, Kim is oft a joke in the media -- for being, well, a media whore and famous for nothing specific -- but at the end of the day, it always kind of seemed like she was in on the joke. Okay, maybe not always, but sometimes. I mean, she has poked fun at herself in the past. But this quote -- which was clearly not remotely well-thought out and was obviously a failed attempt at letting the reporter know she was just spending time with sick kids -- shows how far removed from reality Kim is. Even though "reality" is her business. Damn. Where's Kris Jenner when you need her?

What do you think of this ridiculousness?

I don't necessarily  like or dislike Kim K. but I think this article is ridiculous. It's "picking" at Kim for no reason. You definitely took her comment out of context. It's irritating to see that people are nit-picking everything that she says. I don't think she meant that the child with cancer made that decision, she was simply trying to say how they could relate to each other because they were facing a hardship in their lives that made them see who their true friends were, or other life lessons.

That is not what she meant. She would not have said anything like that. Remember she watched her dad lose a battle with cancer. So yeah she does have a clue!

this wasnt taken ut of context at all....and shes not comparing the girls cancer to her marriage shes comparing the feeling of the lesson shes learned. Yes, cancer is something way more serious but you guys are painting her in a bad light and YOU sound like the idiots not her...

Sorry, but for her to even compare herself to an 18 year old with cancer is the most outrageous and insensitive thing to say. I work with kids with cancer and Kim Kardashian is living in the ivory tower with all the bells and whistles and has not ONE iota as to what it is like having cancer. Shame on her ... she is a media whore to the max.

yeah i think you completely misunderstood her point. Doesnt seem like she was comparing the two..just that she was saying they are both difficult things to go through & both have taught them lessons about life. way to be dramatic though. Sheesh....

didnt her dad die from cancer? Id say thats more than just one iota of knowledge of what its like to live with cancer. Maybe she doesnt know firsthand, but id say she has a pretty good understanding.

FROM KIM:



I want to clear something up for you all, because it seems that something I said has been taken way out of context, as is often the case with quotes pulled from interviews. 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. Many of you know that my father passed away from cancer, and my grandma is a cancer survivor. This is a disease that has brought so much pain and heartache to our family and I would never want to offend or upset anyone who was battling cancer, or whose family members were battling or had passed away from cancer. What I said in the interview was misconstrued and I wanted to explain to you all what the context was around my phone call with this girl. Xo
