A Lesson Can Be Learned from Kim Kardashian

In Living by Nicole2 Comments

Kim Kardashian’s presence is known all over the world. She has a twitter following of over 10.9 Million and a Facebook following of nearly 6.7 million – those are significant numbers if you consider Oprah carries a measley 8 million…..{Ahem}

Kim, through her various reality shows has given an all access pass into her life and as a result has become one of the most watched women in the world. On August 20, 2011 she allowed her fans to take part in her lavish wedding to Kris Humphries via her reality TV film crew.

This week, a mere 72 days after her fairytale day,  Kim announced she was divorcing her husband.  Since that announcement, she has been under endless scrutiny and is doing her best to work through an otherwise private matter within the public eye.

With twitter hashtags like #ThingsLongerthanKimKardashiansMarriage – the world is a buzz primarily criticism and jokes at her expense.

Take some of these tweets for instance:


It’s interesting how much buzz this has created on the web and otherwise. It’s amazing to me just how much attention reality stars are given. But, I think that debate is for another post.

Kim recently released a statement saying:

“…I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones. First and foremost, I married for love. I can’t believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show!”

 While I don’t necessary agree with the attention given to the whole Kardashian family (I am not an avid Keeping up with the Kardashian show watcher) I must say that I do feel for Kim and I think there is a lesson that can be learned from her situation.

She got caught up in her own wedding hype and stopped listening to her inner dialogue that was telling her the marriage wasn’t going to work. She stopped listening to the whispers in her head telling her it wasn’t the right person or time for her to get married and that’s a big lesson I have no doubt she is learning the hard way. It is a lesson that we can all gain from this situation…

Listen to those voices deep down telling you the path you should go on, your instincts are often right.

Now, let’s let Ms. Kardashian work through this matter in peace. I have no doubt she will address it with the public in the not so distant future because that’s part of her brand and persona. She shares everything with her fans as stated in her statement regarding this divorce…

“…I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it’s who I am! We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are.”

And she will share this too….in time…

You know, if you care to find out.

What do you think about the events that have transpired in the Kim Kardashian marriage and subsequent divorce? Do you feel for her?

  1. I’m horrible. I don’t feel for her. I think at some point, she needs to start considering consequences and not just what looks good on TV.

    I don’t watch her show much, but when I do, I can hardly stomach the cluelessness and superficiality.

    Still, she seems nice. So maybe I feel for her…a little?
