Kim Kardashian has had quite the week. First her divorce from Kris Humphries came through. Now the headlines are full of the mom-to-be admitting she's a giant hypocrite.
But considering it's Kim herself dropping the "h" word, this is one she should be proud of. It takes a strong person to admit they were wrong, and Kim is opening up about some of the things she did pre-pregnancy that she's ashamed of now that she's expecting her first child.
Giving sister Kourtney grief for having kids out of wedlock. Kourtney, has two kids, Mason and Penelope, with her not-husband Scott Disick. And Kim says she was pretty adamant during Kourtney's pregnancy, saying things like, "You cannot have a baby without being married."
Kim, of course, got pregnant with Kanye West's baby ... while still technically married to Kris Humphries, which she apologized for in a clip from an upcoming Ryan Seacrest hosted Kardashians special:
I've said some things that I completely am, like, a hypocrite about now.
It's good to hear Kim saying her mea culpas now.
It's hard to do, but this is part of becoming a parent. You learn that some of the things you said and though about parenting when you were child-free are about to go up in smoke.

Do the child-free have smart things to say about parenting? Absolutely ... sometimes. But other times the divide between having kids and not having kids is so wide that there is simply no crossing it. It's like any other "you don't understand until you've been there circumstance," only non-parents seem much more willing to judge parents than say, people who don't have cancer are to judge people with cancer.
This is why non-parents and parents can have so much trouble getting along. But apologies go a long way toward bridging the gap.
Yes, Kim was a hypocrite. But she apologized. She comes off as a much better person for it. She just better get used to it. She's likely to have a laundry list of apologies for mama Kourtney in the years to come.
Do you think Kim is a hypocrite?
