Does Kim Think
Before Speaking?

Kim Kardashian compares her plight to that of a teenage girl with cancer. Yes, seriously.

Kim Kardashian talks to the Guardian

Being famous is like, almost the exact same as having cancer. Say what? Yep, that's the ridiculously inappropriate analogy Kim Kardashian made in a new interview with the U.K. Guardian. In the interview, the reality star compares the drama around her divorce from Kris Humphries to an 18-year-old girl's fight with cancer.

Kim Kardashian calls out nanny for scandalous email >>

"But I think that, with any decisions in life [brace yourselves], 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."

That's right, Kardashian's life is so pampered that being embarrassed by her 72-day divorce is just like fighting a deadly illness. Her vapid, clueless quotes don't stop there, though: The 31-year-old admits she loves fame and compares Keeping Up with the Kardashians to iconic shows of days gone by.

"When I hear people say [what are you famous for?], I want to say, what are you talking about?" she said. "I have a hit TV show. We've shot more episodes than I Love Lucy! We've been on the air longer than The Andy Griffith Show! I mean, these are iconic shows, so it blows my mind when people say that."

It takes talent to be on reality TV, guys.

Kim Kardashian is "selfish," says brother >>

"But to be able to open up your life like that and to be so... if everyone could do it, everyone would," she added. "It doesn't make sense to me."

And as for that ill-fated marriage? She says she won't get married on television again. Or, maybe she will. Thinking is hard!

"I would definitely do it differently. Just all the scrutiny that I got. You don't plan to go through all of that willingly. For money," Kim added. "That's just not what a sane person would do. So. Would I get married on TV again? No."

Not so fast.

So, Kim Kardashian walks into a swingers party... >>

"Well, I guess you never say never. Because who knows? So many other people I know have gotten married on TV and it has worked out amazing for them," she said. "William and Kate got married on TV."

And that, friends, is a look inside Kim Kardashian's mind.

Kim, first be honest for the reason you're famous. You did a porno tape with Brandy's brother and it made you famous. So congratulations you're a ------- ------. Any success you've gotten after that is because of that one tape. You're not a true business woman, business people actually work in their businesses and aren't on photo shoots. Real fashion designers design, they don't sit there and have 20 designers show them designs and then select one. Another reason you're still famous is because you're marginally hot. Looks will trump intelligence every time. There's a reason why Stephen Hawking doesn't have a continuing hit series on TV, although he should. I hope you get cancer so you can really understand what it's like to have it and truly suffer in life. You're an irrelevant person, famous for being a ----- and nobody will ever praise your "achievements" in the short time you've stolen the spotlight from Paris Hilton.

I hate the Kardashian's just as much if not more than most humans, that being said I lost my seven year old daughter a couple of years back and when you talk to people about it they don't know how to respond. People that have never had true hardship in their lives don't know how to put something that heavy into context. So that being said, I think she was using what little brains she does have in that head just to carry on a conversation with someone who knows how rough life can be. And my last point is this, when my daughter was diagnosed "Make A Wish" (which is a wonderful foundation) told us to discourage our daughter from wanting to meet her favorite celebrity because most celebrities won't do it. So I will say kudos to Kim for disrupting her busy schedule (like making porno tapes with washed up rappers) and at least speaking with the girl.

Another shocking (NOT) blunder from the ever-graceful Kim Kardashian. I know she didn't mean to be disrespectful, but seriously, grow some brain cells woman. Your stupid, vapid marriage to a stupid vapid man that lasted like, two minutes is not even on the same order of magnitude as that poor girl's cancer...

Sarah, i agree with you that kim didn't mean any disrespect with her comment.....i think it shows her ignorance and detachment from ordinary people's life. as a cancer survivor, i'd be glad to let her walk a mile in my shoes while i had fun walking in hers. AS Lisa said, she thinks her life is so hard, change it....DON'T strut it for all the world to see..I think she is getting exactly what she wants...being in the spotlight and that is really all she is famous for

lisa September 10, 2012 | 6:36 PM

I really don't wish bad on anyone ..nor do I have any problem with whatever Kim Kardashian does or says...but to compare herself to someone that is sick is just so thoughtless and so ridiculous...She chose what she is doing ..anyone that is sick ..didn't have a choice ..if she doesn't like the life she has..then change it ..stop posting pics and being in the spotlight..the sick don't have a choice...I wish Kim and her family well..but to act like she is a victim is ridiculous.
