Ever since Kim Kardashian became a mom, people have been judging her. And given how much time Kim has spent away from baby North in the one year she's been on this planet, it's kind of understandable that moms who prefer to spend every breathing moment with their newborns would have something negative to say about Kim. Kim seems to be feeling the heat, because lately she's gone out of her way to let everyone know how much time she spends with little Nori. In fact, she would PREFER to be with her baby rather than globetrotting around the world. Ahem.
Kim told NBC's Closing Bell:
It could get tough after you have a baby. There [have been] so many times when I just didn't want to get up and work on something. I just wanted to be home with my baby, but for me, I think I can speak for my sisters, it makes us feel good when we are out working. You know, now that I'm married. I would so much rather spend time with my husband, my family, and my baby, than run around the world working for other people.
Hmm. Lots of times when you see Kim out, she's not exactly "working for other people." There was the months-long prep for her marriage, which saw her take several trips abroad without Nori. There were the two honeymoons, sans Nori. And of course we see her out all of the time, whether it's at a Kanye gig or a Khloe party. Let's face it, Kim has the option of leaving Nori any time she wants to because she has child care; most parents don't have that luxury.
But it would have been nice if Kim had just said she has every right to work, to be away from her husband and kids, and that no one is asking Kanye why he's doing a world tour when he just had a kid. It would have been nice if she'd just come out and said, "I'm a businesswoman and I am not going to give that up and screw you if you don't like it."
Instead, she makes it sound like "other people" are somehow forcing her to work. C'mon. Just own it, Kim.
Do you think Kim really prefers time at home to working?
