Because it’s hard getting your hair and makeup done daily while nannies watch your child…
Kim Kardashian Talks Balancing Motherhood And Career
Well, when your career is essentially hanging out with your family, vacationing around the world, walking around in tight outfits and taking the occasional picture, we doubt it’s too hard to give the nanny a few days off now and again. Via MailOnline:
Hot on the heels of PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi’s candid and controversial admission that she doesn’t think women can have it all, Kim Kardashian has weighed in on the debate.
During an interview alongside sisters Kourtney and Khloé with CNBC’s Closing Bell on Monday, the mom-of-one was asked her thoughts on whether she believes women can raise a family and have a successful career at the same time.
‘I mean, I think that’s just not really, like, a positive outlook,’ she said of Nooyi’s declaration that women simply ‘pretend’ they can have it all. ‘My mom kind of taught us girls we could have it all.’
While the 33-year-old is of course in the very fortunate position of having a multimillion-dollar empire, with her bulging bank account affording her the luxury of hiring nannies to help with 12-month-old daughter North, and with a husband to share the load, she simply puts it all down to ‘prioritising’.
‘You know, [my mom] works hard. She taught us that if you work hard, it’s just all about prioritising,’ she continued.
‘I think that, yeah, it could get tough after you have a baby. There are so many times when I just didn’t want to get up and work on something and I just wanted to be home with my baby, but, for me – and I think I can speak for my sisters – it makes us feel good when we are out working.’
She added: ‘If anyone really feels like they can’t do it all, I feel like it’s a little bit discouraging to say that. Even if I couldn’t and it wasn’t possible, I would try. And I would, you know, try my best to do it all.’
Look at Kim trying to weigh in on serious topics! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on the matter, but somehow we don’t think it’s the place of a pampered
sex-tape reality star to tell the CEO of a major corporation she’s obviously just doing it wrong.
