No one expects Kim Kardashian to be the brightest bulb in the box, but she certainly is a savvy businesswoman and PR manipulator. So you’d think she’d know basic concepts like don’t compare your boy drama to children with cancer. She was speaking to a reporter who asked if Kim had felt pressure to marry Kris Humphries, when 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.”
If the heavy-handed attempt to shoehorn a mention of her charity work wasn’t distasteful enough, comparing her tabloid-tastic problems with an 18 year old’s struggle with cancer was disgusting.
