Kim Kardashian Clears Up That Whole Cancer Comparison Thing

“I want to clear something up for you all, because it seems that something I said has been taken way out of context, as is often the case with quotes pulled from interviews. In a recent magazine interview, I told of how I had called a female fan who was battling cancer, and she told me how she had watched the show and seen how I had faced my own struggles, and had been inspired by how I had found the courage to change a situation that was making me unhappy.”

– Okay, so a few weeks ago, Kim Kardashian gave an interview in which she directly compared the lessons she learned from getting married on TV (and subsequently getting divorced) to the lessons learned by a little girl battling cancer. Exact quote:

“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.”

But now Kim is basically saying, “No, no, no, that’s not what I meant. What I really meant was that this little girl with cancer was innnnnnspirrrrrrrred by my courrrrrrrage during that incredibly difficult, horrible, and lucrative period of my life in which I married a guy on TV and then divorced him 72 days later.” Oh, okay then. So much … worse? [Kim Kardashian]
