Kim Kardashian: ‘I’m a strict mother, strict on nap time, sleeping in her own crib’

wenn21468718

Here are more photos of Kim Kardashian at Wednesday night’s Mail Online yacht party in Cannes. I finally saw the designer ID on her horrible rope dress: it’s Balmain. It was custom-made for her. If I was working for Balmain, I wouldn’t want that information out there. While she was on the yacht with all of those Daily Mail journalists, I guess she gave them an interview which they broke up into like six different “exclusive” stories. For what it’s worth, this is pretty much her first post-wedding interview. So here are some highlights:

Kim on motherhood: “I am a strict mother. I’m really fun and playful, but I’m really strict on nap time, and sleeping in her own crib. Like Kourtney’s style is where her kids sleep in bed with her, so especially with the third baby coming – they’re going to need a bigger bed or they’re going to need some other rules. And maybe on weekends, [North will] come and sleep in the bed with us. But … I’m not crazy strict.”

Wanting another baby: “I hope so. I grew up with a lot of siblings so I know what that’s like. I don’t know if I would really follow in my mum’s footsteps and have six; that’s a little crazy. I don’t know how they did it – they were in their 20s and they weren’t really thinking right! I like a big family and I would definitely like one more and see how that goes.”

New mothers need ‘Me Time’: “To prioritise is really important and you have to be an organised person to get it all done and make sure you have enough time for everyone – for my husband and my baby and for work. It’s that simple; to prioritise – and make some time for yourself. I get up and work out every morning. I know that I don’t feel as good as I could feel if I don’t – and you want to feel your best so you can give to everyone else. So I make sure I do take time for myself; I have lunches with my girlfriends, and do things that are important. Sometimes I see a lot of my friends just get taken over by their kids and their life, and that’s great, but if you don’t spend a little bit of time – whether it’s two hours a day, or one day a week to and visit with your friends. It really helps a lot.”

The reality show: “North’s always there. You might not see her face, but she’s in there. But for her own privacy, we just don’t have her in that much. The beauty of having a reality show – especially as we film at the house – is that the baby’s there. So I actually get to be with her – as opposed to if I had a job in an office, where I couldn’t be in the same room with her while I was working. So I actually feel really lucky to have that advantage to spend so much time with her. I get to see her every single day. I’m there with the baby – it’s kind of perfect. It’s the best job.”

But she would be okay if the reality show ended: “I love sharing my life, and I hope it goes on for as long it can. But if it didn’t, I would be OK with that too – I think that’s how motherhood has changed me. You’re kind of OK with whatever is going on as long as your baby is OK.”

Being married to Kanye: “I feel as though we’ll always be in the honeymoon period. We always say we really like to treat each other like it’s our birthday. I try to treat him like it’s his birthday every single day. I think we’ll always be like that. We always try to make life as fun and enjoyable as possible. We do travel, and work really hard, when we’re together – and even when we’re apart, we’re always on the phone 24/7 – just trying to make that time as memorable as possible.”

[From The Daily Mail (multiple stories)]

You know what’s a little bit funny to me? Kim Kardashian – who I think we can all agree is no rocket scientist – has figured out a way to answer questions about work/life/baby balance without sounding like a self-pitying, self-appointed celebrity martyr. Like, even Gwyneth Paltrow hasn’t managed to figure out how to answer those questions with the acknowledgement that even Kim has: that she’s very lucky to be in the position she’s in. Granted, Kim’s version of “work” is “Photoshopping Instagram photos” and “getting pap’d.” Also: I love how Kim keeps pretending that she spends so much time with North. She really doesn’t. At all.

    It’s not she is not with North, it’s mama spending her “me-time”.

  2. D says:

    She means her nannies are strict, right?

  3. Syko says:

    So she sees her kid every day and is often in the same house with her. Wow, that’s some hands-on parenting, all righty!

    • swack says:

      Was thinking the same thing. Being in the house doesn’t equate to interaction with the child. Also, about North not sleeping in bed with her and Kanye. While I don’t agree with the attached parenting concept (and that’s me and I don’t put people down for it as that is their take on life)), there are some nights when a child is teething, not feeling good, had a bad dream (as they get older) that they need to be next to mom or dad. It’s part of being a parent. My one daughter and her family live with me while they look for a house and my grandchildren climb in bed at night when they need to do so. I spent many a night in a recliner holding my child so she could sleep with her head raised because she was so stuffed up she had a hard time sleeping.

      • Syko says:

        Same here, swack. I’m not a big believer in co-sleeping…it’s okay if you believe you want to do it, but I’m sort of selfish about my sleep and nobody sleeps well in a bed full of toddler arms and legs… but I spent many a night cuddling a sick one (or a scared one, or needy one, or whatever) in my bed, or, like you, sitting up rocking them while they slept. It amazes me that these people with ten nannies, who spend an hour a day with their kids, think that’s being a good parent.

      • kcarp says:

        I am not a believer in co-sleeping. I have been sleeping with my 2 1/2 year old for I don’t know 2 1/2 years. Worse mistake I ever made.

        Me and her in a twin bed while my husband gets a king size all alone. The nights she pees through her pull up are the best and I wake up in pee soaked pajamas.

        Good times!

      • Audrey says:

        I never planned to bedshare but I do.

        I got to the point of being too exhausted to fight it. We’ve grown to really love it though.

        Yes it gets frustrating when she’s starfished herself in the middle of the bed. But it’s easy to breastfeed. And when my husband has worked 12 hours that day, he still gets to cuddle our daughter as she sleeps.

        But she’s only 15 months and an only child. I couldn’t do it with more than one.

      • swack says:

        @Audrey, totally understand and I won’t shade you for it. We all do what we have to do to make it through. And believe me, I worked and was exhausted and there were many a night I fell asleep with one of my daughters’ (especially when they were first sleeping in a regular bed and not a crib) in their bed while waiting for them to go to sleep.

      • Audrey says:

        Oh don’t worry, I don’t feel judged at all. Just explaining the other side :)

      • ScrewStewrat99 says:

        I’m so glad to see I’m not the only one who caves in from exhaustion and lets their baby sleep with them! When my baby was first born she absolutely refused to lay on her back. She would cry hysterically when I tried so I ended up sleeping on the couch with her on top of me. I know you’re not supposed to do that, but it was the only way either of us got sleep. It turned out she had acid reflux, so when she was on her back acid would come up and burn her throat. Once we got medicine for her she would sleep on her back, but she got used to cuddling me, so now every morning she wakes and cries to cuddle and I have to put her in bed with me. She at least sleeps in her crib for most of the night, but it’s a hard habit to break and it’s a real fight if I don’t let her cuddle. Sometimes I can’t help but cave in =(

      • Sarah says:

        We’ve coslept by design from night one. We have a 3.5 year old and a nearly 1 year old with my husband and I in 2 queen beds pushed together. It wasn’t what I had initially planned, but it’s extremely common in my husband’s culture and I loved it right away. We all sleep great and I don’t have to drag myself out of bed for any reason. It’s really not that big of a deal.

      • Sticks says:

        @Audrey

        Exact same boat here! I wasn’t planning in cosleeping either but we are doing it and have also grow to love it too. Ours is 14 months now.

      • Dommy Dearest says:

        I didn’t plan on bed sharing either but it happened. It happened after I kicked her dad out for cheating and lying. It was comforting at first to have her sleep next to me for the first month or two but now it’s still going on a year later. I regret it now because even though she’ll start in her bed, she’ll end up in mine. A part of me doesn’t care but the other part, her feet in my back, does care. Any tips for getting her to stay in her own bed all night because I would love to hear them!

      • Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

        I’ll admit I’m a tried and true AP. We bedshared from day one with both my kids though with the first one I didn’t plan on it, it just happened after three straight days of not sleeping. She was sweet though and honestly after 6 months she wanted her space and transitioned to her crib without fussing at all. My second was planned bedshairing since I enjoyed with the first so much, but damn it was a whole ‘nother ball game with her. She bed shared till 18 months, room shared till 2 years. We were also extended breastfeeding which I think played into it. If we have a third I’m sure it will be the same…

        Dommy the best think I can say is we got her a special toy (its a my little pony) and she sleeps with that now. If she gets too scared she talks to it and tells it whats scaring her, but she knows that /that/ toy may not come into the big bed. Its only made for her bed. So rather than parting with her toy she chooses to stay in her bed. It works about 80% of the time. The other 20% I just cave and bring her in cause I’m so exhausted.

    • joy says:

      Ditto this. Oh she’s right there over by the $80,000 sofa that I love more than her.

    • PinkyTuscadero says:

      I read that too– “I see her every day.” God knows I’m no Kim apologist, and I know I sound goopy here, but dayum we women are so hard on other moms. Yes, she’s a narcissistic moron, she shows her boobies while pushing a tram, and she spent four days taking a wedding picture. All true. But working and having a kid is probably challenging even with nannies and support (note I didn’t say “hard”. “Hard” is a single mom on the night shift.) I think she was comparing herself to peers like actors, who have to choose between destabilizing a child’s life by bringing her on location somewhere far away for long periods or to leave her for long periods.

      I’d love for us to be kinder about motherhood unless we have evidence (a la that Bling Ring girl’s mom) that someone’s parenting is focked.

      All that said, Kim’s pr team deserves bonus. EXCELLENT ANSWERS for the most part, Miss Calabasas. We won’t be needing you to change for the bikini portion cuz you’re already nekkid.

    • Ag says:

      @Audrey – we are in the same boat as you guys. :) we never planned it (and had no idea it was something one could do), but ended up doing it. we’re often too exhausted to transfer him to his crib multiple times during the night, and it’s the only way to get some sleep before we have to get up for work. and it makes boobing him a breeze. and so funny that you guys call it “starfishing,” that’s what we call it too. :)

  4. kri says:

    Dear Balmain,
    So sorry for your loss-of dignity.

    Dear Mother of The Year,

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!

  5. eliza says:

    Outfit-Ridiculous.
    Makeup-Ridiculous.
    Interview-Totally Ridiculous.

  6. NewWester says:

    On a positive note, with all the photos that are out there of Kayne and Kim, at least North will be able to see her parents.

  7. Buckwild says:

    That honestly wasn’t a bad interview. Don’t know what else to say now.

    • Kara says:

      Yea, I agree. She comes off as kind of likable.

      I also think the dress is very cool. Just not on her. Or maybe anyone. But, an interesting piece nonetheless.

      • Elle says:

        Well that was the idea. Kardashians, especially Kim, are pros media persuasion and have been well coached for years. They know what to say and how to say it so they sound “likeable”. They aren’t new to this but unfortunately media and other fall for it. She’s a liar and 98% of things she says are not true. Her lies have been exposed many times. She used the strict mom crap to appear involved in that child’s life when we all know she isn’t. Everything Kim does is calculated and planned. We knew bikini pics would be posted when they took Mexican vacay and we know there will be pics of them with IgNori up soon to counter all this backlash. She’s not real or authentic and the worst offense is she’s not a mother to her
        Daughter.

    • HH says:

      Agreed. Sometimes Kim irks me, sometimes she seems harmless, but the one thing that is consistent is that I do believe she is fully aware that she leads a privileged life. I don’t think she ever takes her fame for granted which is probably why her and Mama Jenner milk the current fame for everything it’s worth.

    • Zinjojo says:

      That’s because her PR team put her through media training and fed her all of the answers before the interview. The Daily Fail and her PR team agreed to all of the questions in advance, so she comes across as likeable.

      Interviews with actual journalists are not set up like that, but puff pieces on faux celebrity “news” sites let the PR team take charge.

  8. Krista says:

    The thing that bugs me most about that outfit: her big toes fall off the sides of those shoes.

  9. Sabrine says:

    Her past is not to be admired especially the tape with Ray J. but she does have fifty million dollars in the bank. She’s not a rocket scientist but she seems to be doing all right for herself.

  10. daisyfly says:

    They don’t film in the house they live in. She lunch with her friends EVERY SINGLE DAY. Plus dinners. Plus shopping. Her child doesn’t like being with her – we can see it on her face and in her body language.

    If she was Pinocchio, she’d have stabbed herself in the back of her own head by now with all the lies she’s told.

  11. paola says:

    She is a very strict mother?
    She is going to send any kid she sees to bed because she doesn’t know which one is her own!
    My god she really thinks we’re stupid!

  12. Gretchen says:

    Well I’m sure we are all shocked and astounded to learn that Kim K hasn’t gone the ‘attachment’ parenting route… *snort*

    2 hours a day or one day a week of me time? Buahahaha, I’m lucky if I have time to brush my teeth, shower and have dinner all in the same day!

    • strickchic says:

      Amen Gretchen! I can’t even use the bathroom in private half of the time!

      • Jac says:

        ^ THIS. I must be doing something wrong, or perhaps there are just more hours in a Kardashian day…

      • Bej says:

        I remember when my girls were babies/toddlers still, locking myself in the toilet to get 2 minutes of ‘me time’ & their little fingers creeping under the door, as they called out for me. 2 hours a day of ‘me time’? What a bizarre, alien concept! A luxury I’m sure, just probably not a luxury I would have felt comfortable with.

      • Aussie girl says:

        My baby boy is four months. What me time..? It must be when he sits in his rocker in the bathroom watching me have a quick shower. This girl has no idea.

      • Gretchen says:

        Hahaha yes! Privacy is thing of the past, I don’t even bother closing the bathroom door anymore. By the end of the day, if the wee one is still alive and happy, the house is still standing, and I’ve managed to have lunch and maintain basic standards of hygiene it’s more than a good day, it’s bloody victorious!

      • Ag says:

        oh, ladies. we are clearly doing things wrong. we’re such peasants. we need to hire nannies and chefs and other help so that we can spend hours of ME TIME doing ME THINGS. lol

        @gretchen – amen on everything you said. by the end of the day, if our toddler is happy, if we are all fed and relatively clean, if our place is sort of clean, we’re happy and feel super accomplished. haha. let our son come into the bathroom when we pee and sleep with us when he wakes up at night. i wouldn’t change it for the world. :)

      • PinkyTuscadero says:

        If you had the time, would you take it? Or are you morally superior because you don’t have that luxury?

      • dahlianoir says:

        don’t get me started on going to pee peacefully. My son either bangs the door or put his little fingers under it to ask for something. EVERYTIME

    • LeahMommy says:

      The only “me time” I get with my 2 year old is when she goes to bed at 7pm. I started sleep training as soon as she was 2 months old and make sure that 7pm bedtime is respected on most day. That is the only way I get some time to myself. She even comes in the bathroom with me because she would just stand outside of the door cry and bang the door the whole time I’m in there. Kim is very lucky to have all this free time because most moms I know don’t. At least she’s not saying poor me like Gwyneth.

    • Mikeyangel says:

      OMG yes this 100 times. Mine are 3 almost 4 and 21 months and if I can brush my teeth and take a shower and cook dinner in peace it is a miracle. I too don’t even bother to close the door when going to the bathroom there is no point.

      To answer someone else’s question, if I had the time no I wouldn’t take it. Would love one outing a week by myself but I love my kids and love being around them. Even when my husband and I go on our quarterly date night we miss them. Not so much as to not take the date night but we wind up spending half the night talking about them.

      I don’t hate Kim or anything but she has no clue about reality. Good for her or whatever and I am glad she doesn’t try to compete with the average mom by comparing or saying how hard it is, but everything this woman does is excessive.

      Finally, she does seem to be throwing shade at Kourtney here for her parenting style. She doesn’t do it mean but she still none the less does it. Kourtney may be a lot of things, but bad mom isn’t one of them.

      • Gretchen says:

        @Mikeyangel
        I salute you! I only have one and the day disappears into the babyverse, I can’t imagine what it must be like with with 3!!

        @Pinkytuscadero
        hmmmm, am I morally superior to a Kardashian? I’m going to take a wild stab in the dark and say probably, yes :)

        Seriously though, if I had Kardashian levels cash it would be nice to have someone clean the house once or twice a week, and maybe a personal chef/food delivery service to ensure I eat at least one square nutritious meal per day. I don’t begrudge any time spent with the wee one, I am not so attached to activities involving house cleaning however, and cooking something decent just feels so time consuming (and I used to enjoy cooking!).

        Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to shame mums into not making time for themselves, I’m just pointing out that for many, many mums, it’s just not possible, and it irks me that KK brings up the importance of “me time” without also acknowledging the importance of hired help in achieving that.

      • Mikeyangel says:

        Thank you Gretchen. I worded that funny though I only have 2, one is 3 almost 4, the other is 21 months. Lol three would take me over the edge right now!

      • Gretchen says:

        Ahhhh, well my salute still stands :)
        My husband is one of nine (I look at his mum in absolute awe…I seriously don’t know how she managed) and he loves it, so he really wants a large family…I’m currently in the process of changing the definition of “large family” to 2-3 kids!

    • Nona says:

      Why do mothers think they’re heroes for being mothers? Did someone hold a gun to your head and make you have a baby?

      Soldiers are heroes.

      Firefighters are heroes.

      Mother Theresa was a hero.

      You are not a hero for having a baby and then having to take care of it.

  13. Marigold says:

    So let me get this straight-North must nap at appointed times every day and sleep in her own crib? Okay, fine. But how, pray tell, is this woman managing to do that across different time zones and when she and the baby aren’t even on the same continent? If she has some sort of magic wand that allows her to work this fiction she’s selling, I’d like to see it.

    Oh, and while it’s nice that she knows how lucky she is, it’s convenient she leaves out the nannies. Because taping the show at home (is it really much time at home?) might be nice but it doesn’t equal her being hands on like she seems to claim.

  14. strickchic says:

    What about the hours she spends in a chair getting her hair and makeup done, all the time shopping and picking out outfits(that are usually ridiculous), all the time going out with Kanye, going out anytime.. all of that is me time. My daughter is 10 years old and I am still trying to figure out how to get me time. When you work a full time job and are a parent, the very little time that you may have alone, now that is actually me time. What a vapid, delusional, ridiculous imbecile. ugghhh

  15. Jules says:

    Half of the fishermen in the Atlantic Ocean wonder what happened to their fishing nets………

  16. Maria says:

    Lies, lies, and more lies.

    She’s inherently selfish and narcissistic, Nori never looks happy to be with her.

    I do believe her about North sleeping in her crib, I can definitely see that. It’s a shame she didn’t mention the hours she spends photoshoping her own pictures or at the surgeon’s office.

  17. GiGi says:

    So. Much. Makeup.

    I don’t even understand this level of makeup. It’s extreme. It would be extreme even for an HD filmed TV show. It’s a lot of f*ing makeup.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Word. I keep looking at her thinking “… damn, how is that even staying on her face?” HOW does one get all that stuff ON there? I love make up, I really do. It’s fun to “play” with and Lord, keep me away from the counters at the end of the month. BUT I don’t pile it on. That’s not the point. Less really is more most of the time. … Maybe it’s shellac? Maybe someone at the Armani counter (this has happened to me) told her that xyz make up can be applied with up to 24 layers. Dude. No.

      • GiGi says:

        LOL! 24 Layers?!?!

        I assume it’s airbrush makeup. I’ve seen some of her makeup videos on other makeup sites and it is intense. Basically her entire face is a farce. She employs liberal use of highlighting/shading. It’s maybe one thing to do that for filming, or shooting… but to go out like that? It looks ridiculous in real life. This is the kind of makeup actors wash off before going out in public!

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        I’m not even kidding. I had her apply the make up (which I usually hate because … dirty brushes) because it’s too expensive to buy blindly. So she told me a bit about the product of course and I swear to God, I almost fell over. I use ONE layer, thankyouverymuch. HOW? That is really my only question. HOW? Probably air brush technique, yes. But still.

        Yeah, I’ve seen some of those videos but who in their right mind would try to copy that look? Possibly even as a daytime look? Sometimes women on the subway sit across from me with tons and tons of make up and all I can do is stare. And stare some more.

    • paola says:

      It looks like she’s wearing a mask.
      That part between her hairline and the forehead looks almost photoshopped! And we all know that the forehead is probably the least of her problems when it comes to editing and tweaking with photoshop.

  18. lassie says:

    The bulgy things coming out of the armpits of the dress are gross. Is that the implant or fat?

  19. Kiddo says:

    We’ll Always is a phrase best used in a fairy tale, similar to ‘Happily ever after’.

  20. Kaylah says:

    TMZ has some pictures of North bundled up in towels and transported cross country by an “entourage” but no mommy or daddy.

    I could never let my child let alone my one year old travel cross country with me on that plane too and if it was a dire emergency at least a family member.

    I’m so over her lies you don’t see North every week let alone every day and how exactly are you “strict” with a one year old? I’m so tired of her.

  21. Tracy says:

    Kim, Kourtneys lifestyle is that she is an actual hands on mom. God, she must despise you deep down.

  22. grabbyhands says:

    She’s strict in all the right ways to ensure that she spends as little time with her daughter as possible, outside of photo shoots and carefully planned pap photo ops. Her poor kid. At least Kourtney actually seems to like her kids.

  23. Mena says:

    Sometimes it’s quality over quantity. I work ten hour shifts with my job, so I don’t get to spend time with my kids as often as I would like. When I do spend time with them, I try to make it as meaningful and enjoyable as possible. I know plenty of stay at home moms who spend their whole day on the internet, not interacting with their kids at all. So perhaps Kim may not have North attached at her hip but she might make it up for it in other ways. And I totally agree Mommies need ” me time”. I have lunch and dinner dates at least once a week with my girlfriends, and I refuse to feel bad about it. I like this interview.

    • Kara says:

      Yes, and constantly posting about what mommy martyrs they and how they love their children more than anything else in the world…except for the internet, apparently.

      I get me time at least once a week I would say, my husband takes the kids for an hour or two somewhere just for this purpose. I didn’t know it was so weird and uncommon and frowned upon.

      • Josephine says:

        I don’t think anyone has a problem with the concept of me-time for moms. But somehow I’m guessing that it’s me-time for Kim nearly 24 hours a day. Almost everyone I know is a working mom, but not one took multiple me-time vacations before their kid turned 1. I’m guessing she’ll like the kid more when she can dress her up and take her out shopping and to lunch. She doesn’t strike me as someone who can deal with the inconvenience and messiness of a baby.

    • Ag says:

      like you, i work long hours and commute, so my time with my son has to be quality over quantity. and i don’t think anyone frowns on “me time.” i just think that kim is full of $hit.

    • TG says:

      I get what you are saying and I too am gone a minimum of 12 hour days for work and I try to make the brief time I have with my child as meaningful as possible but Kim is off doing “me time” all the time so that is why people are criticizing her. Plus she is lying about her parenting. Half the time she isn’t even in the same time zone as her bio-child so her nannies or PMK are doing the parenting not Kim or Kanye. And it is no surprise Nori has to sleep in her own bed, as if Kimmy would take the time to snuggle with her baby. Kids need to feel loved and protected and as others have said sometimes they just need mommies arms.

    • LeahMommy says:

      I work 8 hours a day so I don’t spend nearly as much time as I would like with my daughter either. But when I’m not working she has my everything. I wouldn’t feel comfortable leaving her they way Kim seems to do with her daughter. Like others have said, I don’t think “me time” is what people are criticizing Kim for, in fact, I applaud any mom/wife who can carve some time for themselves because I KNOW how hard that can be. But even though we don’t know her personally, everyone can tell that she AND Kanye spend very little time with the baby. They basically just had her for publicity and seem to give her the time of day only when there is a photo-op. That’s just sad.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Of course you like what she said, it was crafted so you would but it has very little to do with the reality of Kim’s life or her apparent indifference to her child. Kim is roundly criticized for not being with her child for good reason, let’s add Kanye in there too, they’re too busy being fabulous to be bothered with their baby, that’s not quality time they’re giving, it’s photo-op time.

  24. Kacy says:

    Strict on her waiting until she’s 18 until she films her own sex tape.

  25. truthful says:

    strict on a barely one yr old??–you get em!!! (eyeroll)

    thank the lord for her nanny

  26. jwoolman says:

    I wish someone would video the nannies while they first read this interview. Imagine the looks on their faces as she chatters on about being a strict mother and spending so much time with the tot (who still acts as though she doesn’t know this woman). Gotta give credit to whomever prepared her for those questions, though. Kim would never have spontaneously figured out what to lie,, er, say.

    Also notice how she manages to justify herself and slam her sister simultaneously. Kourtney just isn’t a good strict mother like Kim. That’s why Kourtney’s kids don’t look like they’re trying to run away from her when she holds them. She’s just such a terrible mother. If she were properly strict, the kids would hide when they see her coming.

    I doubt very much that little Nori will ever be invited into Kim’s bed on weekends or ever because as we know 1) Kim needs a lot of beauty sleep and 2) Kim must be instantly available to have sex with Kanye at all times because the poor big baby can’t wait like Kourtney’s Scott.

  27. lower-case deb says:

    after a whole day, i finally remembered what KK in that dress reminds me of: a termite queen.

  28. Barbiegirl says:

    My baby was born a week before Nori, and even though I have a nanny I really feel guilty when he is with her and I need to work, so I do not spend time with him. When I need to travel for 2 days my heart aches so much at the thought that he is away, and I miss him so much. I use the nanny when I have to work exclusively (in the office) and I try ti limit the time with her, as if I have free time I do want to spend it with him. I could not jet set around the world for days/weeks living him at home, if I had the same bank account as her my baby would come with me – and a nanny – all the time… Me time?!?? Sure when I shower in the morning and after bed time, but that is about it…

  29. DogMom says:

    What does she *do*, exactly?

    Also she’s wearing some kind of booty padding in the fisherman’s dress, right?

  30. lucy2 says:

    “I feel as though we’ll always be in the honeymoon period.” So they’ll spend the rest of their lives photoshopping pictures of themselves. How romantic.

    This is totally to try to combat all the bad press about them ignoring the baby, but please, you can’t say that while jetting off to Cannes after having 2 honeymoons, and a bunch of other baby-free trips just in the past month or so.
    I’d feel sad for the baby, but honestly she’s probably better off, her parents are both psycho narcissists. Hope she has nice nannies.

  31. Bellaboo says:

    LOL. When my kids were little my “me time” was spent soaking in a hot bath with my kids sitting on the edge soaking their feet in my relaxing bath!!

  32. Mabry says:

    For some reason, Kim never bothered me. This interview, plus the pics this morning of North flying alone with her many handlers, was my turning point. I am now fed up with her. Kanye has always been a joke to me. This poor child North.

  33. Grant says:

    I kind of like the dress….?

  34. Cupcake says:

    Her face looks absolutely wax in this make-up.

  35. dorothy says:

    She’s never with the child. I guess she means she’s strict on her nannies.

  36. AryaMartell says:

    As someone with no kids, do I come off as a judgmental bitch if I say that if you need as much “me-time” as Kim needs then don’t become a parent? I mean, I get it, I really do. Parents need to have time that they don’t have to be parents. My problem is that when parents would rather spend days photoshopping their wedding photos than spend time with their child you should not be a parent. I mean feel hypocritical saying this after saying in my Stacy Kiebler article that we shouldn’t be judging others so harshly but I have a real problem with poor Nori being left behind while Kim and Kanye gallavant around. I know enough to know the importance of bonding between parent and child and there appears to be none of that woth as much as we see Nori with nannies and Kim and Kanye out and about.

  37. Palermo says:

    She sees North, what, about ten minutes two days a month? Truly an absentee Mom. You can tell by the way she holds her for those photo ops, she tries to keep her off her clothing in case she messes her up in some way.

    • Dawn says:

      Yep and the way that North reacts to both Kim and Kanye tell the real story. That little girl does not know them or trust them. She is always looking for Kanye’s Aunt who I believe is the main nanny. Both Kim and Kanye are a joke. And the people who write the articles for DM sound like they are Junior High wanna be writers. Just pure nonsense!

  38. Spaniard says:

    Daily Mail keeps getting worse. Of course she went to their party, that is more like her fan club than a showbiz online paper section. And of course in articles regarding her comments are always moderated which mainly means certain stuff will never be posted. They keep praising her, trying to clean her reputation, modify info that would make her look bad etc

  39. Skins says:

    How does the interviewer keep a straight face when she is spewing this ridiculous garbage?

    • Spaniard says:

      It’s a Daily Mail interviewer. That is like her biggest fan site ever. Check the site, what they write about her and how the always supervise comments on articles about her. That’s why she went to their party, they are on her payroll

  40. vv007 says:

    I can’t believe I read that article. She has no substance at all. She’s oatmeal wrapped in botox and ass implants.

  41. L says:

    She looks like a smushed Twinkie in that dress.

  42. JessSaysNo says:

    I agree with her words, even though I know her nanny does the parenting. I do think toddlers need their naps and bed-time. I get annoyed when my friends talk about letting their child stay up until they “pass-out on the couch” at freaking 11pm because they didn’t want to put in the effort of a scheduled bath>story>bedtime. One friend has never put her child in a crib for nap, the toddler has napped when he feels like it, on his moms lap since birth and is now over 2. That shit is crazy.

    • jwoolman says:

      Cribs and separate bedrooms and scheduled nap times are actually a relatively recent phenomenon. For most of human history, babies were just carried around by mom and slept when they were sleepy. They’re quite adaptable. If their environment is noisy routinely, they get used to it and the noise doesn’t interfere with sleeping. If their environment is usually quiet, though, they’ll be sensitive to noise. So modern notions that baby needs a strict schedule and a quiet room can backfire if things change.

      I don’t know how any adult in sole charge of a baby or toddler gets anything done, though. Just occasional babysitting exhausted me. (Of course, I can be worn out by a kitten.) In olden times, there were usually other adults around at the same time, which made a big difference. Plus if baby is strapped to mom’s back, that gives mom more options. But toddlers have to toddle….

      • JessSaysNo says:

        I’m assuming from your comments that you don’t have kids. If and when you do, you will understand that as a parent in sole-charge of children, schedules are important. I can say that when I am with my female relatives, caring for my daughter is a breeze. One to fix her lunch, one to take her for a walk, one to change her diaper, and I can step in when I want to rock her to sleep or play for a bit. It’s all gravy. When it’s just me at home, I do everything. At 1:30, when my child is in her crib sleeping after lunch, I have an hour or two to shower, eat a meal myself, tidy up a toddlers mess, prep part of dinner, return emails (fostering relationships is important for mom too!) and have a 15 minute coffee break. I love it. I love knowing she is safe in her crib upstairs and I love having a mental break from the demands of a toddler.

        Living communally was a life-saver in olden times. But now, we run our own households and a mother can not and should not be expected to keep the baby at her side or on her back 24/7 (and my aforementioned mom friends do, the baby also sleeps with them all night and is up at the crack of dawn. Literally no baby-free moments.) I believe toddlers need a bit of alone time at naptime, not constantly stimulated by moms presence or the busy living room of the house. We don’t live in caves anymore, we don’t need to worry about a mountain lion snatching our kid off of a dirty deerskin blankie like its 4000 BC, we can let them chillax in their own rooms for an hour. The crib and bedroom is a calm, happy place that my child loves and falls asleep happily within 10 minutes. And this comes from a mama who loved to babywear, ERF, and room-shared for 6 months.

      • Mikeyangel says:

        Jesssaysno yes 100 times yes

      • swack says:

        Let me add that just because a child is put in a crib in a room does not mean it is totally quiet. I babysit my grandchildren, anywhere up to 10 at a time (more if they have friends over) and have 3 dogs in the house (all three are granddogs of which 2 bark at the drop of a hat) and it is far from quiet when I put down the 2 year old for a nap. She falls asleep fine. I believe children need structure in their lives and regular bed times. My daughter’s were always in bed by 7:30 pm when they were young (as they got older that bed time changed). I worked and without that I got nothing done (dishes, laundry, cleaning, some down time, etc).

      • Sarah says:

        Meh, schedules aren’t really necessary for all people. I think it depends on your personality. For some people they like regularity. We are more laid-back and I’ve never really had a schedule with either of my kids other than, like, ok 3 meals a day (usually). I used to teach and my life was run by the clock so I think now I prefer to just go with the flow!

    The Ass of Lies has a Mouth of Lies.

  44. DrFunkenstein says:

    I’ll confess, I rarely read these Kardashian articles as they are bad for my blood pressure. But I love the comments and never miss them!

  45. Diane says:

    I hardly think “strict” is the right word when you are dealing with a baby.

  46. lucy says:

    Any dress cut to reveal that much armpit pudge is not a good dress.

    • swack says:

      Had to look because I tend to glance through the pics especially if they aren’t new. Look like b00b to me. If you look at your right, her left, it looks like the book is trying to escape and the other side looks like it has accomplished it task of escaping.

  47. watchmaker says:

    I’m just admiring the yacht boy in the last photo. Standing back there with his arms crossed, and that smug look on his face…😊

  48. mar says:

    between her crazy new hairline and her botoxy makeup and new nose job, she looks like a mannequin.

  49. Yvonne says:

    Kim is great! She is also a Brand… Go Kim!!

  50. zinala says:

    If you look at the pictures of North with her parents she is never smiling and looks stressed. Children’s faces reflect their parent’s faces. She mirrors the looks she she sees on their faces. That’s all I have to say.

  51. Sarah says:

    I try to avoid KK posts. I don’t want my clicks counting for her ‘popularity.’ But I just came in to declare that she has won… she’s the biggest troll for comments ever for all time! (One might says she’s a GENIUS.)

    Insane clothes? Check. Questionable choices in partners? Check. Compulsive lying? Check. Photoshopping and plasticizing her appearance? Check. Now… stirring up Mommy-drama? Mic drop!!

  52. Jayna says:

    Mom of the year she is but still manages to carve out a little time for herself. LOL Photos on TMZ of NW flying in on a jet with her nanny carrying her and security guards, aunt, etc. No mom or dad in sight.

    “Kim Kardashian’s 1-year-old baby is a full-on baller, flying 1st class from NYC to L.A. with nannies, an assistant, Kanye’s aunt, a nurse and a security guard … then whisked off the plane by Delta personnel and escorted home in a chauffeur-driven Porsche Panamera waiting for her on the tarmac.

    North West did not fly with her mom or dad. Kanye was in France and flew to Miami. Kim flew to New York with North but then left for France for a day … so mom and daughter flew back home separately.

    And no Ubers for North. She rolled up to JFK in Kanye’s Maserati and was greeted by her people.”

  53. unamadridista says:

    I’m glad that she at least recognizes how rare it is to have the ability to have your child at work with you, because not everyone can do that and this world just wouldn’t function if we all did that. I guess this is the only thing I envy her (did I just really type that????) because I had two relationships end over this issue, so she’s lucky in that respect.

  54. lucy says:

    That painted-on hair looks:

    a. painted on
    b. atrocious
    c. like a cheap wig
    d. all of the above

    Such an abrupt, weird hairline!

  55. dorothy says:

    The fact that Kim’s priority was to attend a party, out of the country instead of being with her child speaks volumes. This wasn’t the first time either.

  56. Nat says:

    I don’t get the hate on Kim. If she was a working actress and left her baby with nannies/her father to go shoot on location, nobody would bat an eyelid. Well this is what she does for a living essentially, she goes to parties, she promotes an image, she gets photographed. The return on this is that she keeps herself relevant, this site and many like it keep posting stories on her, she gets offered endorsements and promotional opportunities… this is her working! Do I think that what she does is worthy of respect and adulation? Absolutely not, but I’m not going to sit here behind my computer and say she’s got to bring her kid with her everywhere. If you want to be the type of mother that gives up their social or work life for your kid to spend every waking moment with them then great, good for you. But that’s not everybody. I know plenty of people who grew up with parents that were unwilling to drastically change their lifestyles when they had kids. The kids were always loved, taken care of, and part and parcel to family time, but the parents reserved time to have their own lives as well, which is what I think she’s doing. The people I know that had this upbringing, a few of my best friends to be exact, turned out well adjusted emotionally, happy, and many have advanced degrees and are successful. I really disagree with the notion that every new mom that doesn’t have to work should want to spend every waking moment with their child, to each their own!

    • almondey says:

      + 1! AGREE WITH ALL OF THIS!

    • Spaniard says:

      Nobody is saying she has to spend every second of her day with her daughter. Other celebrities spend time ago from her kids for work and nobody criticizes them for that. But there is a difference: For Kim spending time with her daughter is the exceptional thing.

    • unamadridista says:

      Amen, Nat!

      I absolutely agree, but it’s so hard getting people to understand what you just said. They all assume it’s some selfish mentality. I’ve read one cruel comment on here that said something like, “if you need time off from being a mom, then you shouldn’t be one.” That’s sad. I remember needing ‘me’ time when I first moved in with my ex and that was without any babies, and you wouldn’t believe the snark people dished out. It was the same if I missed one of his games for work, people would say, that I shouldn’t have because it’s not like I needed to work and that my job has a short shelf-life anyway. I do recognize jobs like mine and especially hers have time limit and not something anyone can do forever, but that’s why she’s milking it now. And do kids Nori’s age really remember how much time they spend with their mom at this point? I don’t, and until I was five my mom stayed home with me.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      If only Kim had an actual job I might agree with you but I don’t think someone one with $50 million really needs to spend her time hustling party gigs. She has no interest in being a parent and then puts up the pretense of being a mom in her joke of an interview. Spare me the defense, she’s not worthy of it, she’s interested in her mirror and her daily pap stroll and let’s not pretend otherwise.

    • HarleyB says:

      Kim is not a ‘working’ anything. You can literally track her daily movements and none of them involve anything urgent. It consists of Pap, Shop, Change clothes, Repeat. I think the contempt in the comments stems from her aggravating assailt on our intelligence.

      • unamadridista says:

        I can’t believe I’m defending that woman, but so what if she’s ‘working’? It’s her choice, and what else is she good at besides being famous? Might as well benefit from it before her time runs out. It’s not like she’d get to do it at 50. Besides why shade her not working, it’s not like she has an intense working history? I know many women like her who have kids, have nannies, and don’t have regular jobs/careers, and spend most days shopping/spas/beauty treatments/etc. Why is that bad if it’s their choice and they can afford that lifestyle? It doesn’t not make anyone like that a bad mom or person. Sure it’s superficial and not everyone would find it appealing, even if it was affordable, but she does and so what? My mother was doing pretty much the same thing when I was born and kept doing it until our family circumstances changed when I was 5. So what? Some women don’t have desire, ambition, or right mentality for serious careers/jobs.

        I don’t think we can evaluate her parenting skills based on her superficial activities & jet setting. Let’s go back to pondering better Kim K questions, like why so much money can’t buy her a tailor or at least find clothes in her actual size? It hurts just looking at that dress in the picture.

      • Nat says:

        If she just stopped showing up to parties and stopped getting papped how long do you think it would be before the world forgot about her? The people she makes her money off of, the general public, have the attention span of a peanut. While it sounds like she is just constantly jet-setting and being selfish, there are plenty of wealthy women that do this and stay out of the public eye. What she does, regardless of what you all think of it, has a purpose and is making her money. She was already going to be well off in life prior to getting famous, but nowhere compared to where she is now. She is a brand now and she made that happen for herself. I don’t know her net worth but someone in the thread above said 50 mil. There are plenty of CEO’s that don’t make that much money… I understand that her lifestyle and career are based a lot more on superficiality but that is a result of our culture and how much it is willing to pay for their interest in her. I don’t think she deserves any awards but damn, she is working… you know how I know? Because she brings home buttloads of money (I’m not even sorry for that one). At the end of the day she’s bringing home the bacon, and hey if she didn’t need a Harvard MBA to do it then more power to her.

  57. Raelee says:

    This has got to be the most phony interview ever. Next Kim is going to say she’s feeds North I mean we all know how North is handled. I expect nothing but lies from this fake.

  58. A Fan says:

    Off topic, but…

    Physically speaking, it’s like she’s taken all her natural beauty and uniqueness and made a caricature of it. Now, she’s so ‘perfect’ (at least what she perceives is perfect) that she’s lost what was once beautiful, real, and special about her. Maybe the same generalization could even be said about her life?

    [*Philosophical musing now over*]

  59. FLORC says:

    If anyone else said this we’d be agreeing. Babies should get use to sleeping alone. And this is something Kourtney has said she does do. Mason would sleep next to her every night.
    But it’s a KK thread so lets stone the witch.

    • Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

      Seems so. Ones who say, ‘You can’t ever, ever, EVER judge mothers, you hateful monster!’ are sometimes a breath away from calling out a hit on some woman if she burps in the wrong direction (and I’m not necessarily talking about KK).

  60. Rascalito says:

    It probably would take that super strong naval rope to contain that epic fart box of hers. Oh well, at least if she falls overboard she won’t need a life preserver.

  61. mazomazohyst says:

    The Kardashians are such a dysfunctional family with Kris Jenner being the overall queen of all narcissistic mothers ever to emotionally abuse their children; does anyone actually expect Kim to be a good mother? And Kanye is obviously missing a few screws.
    This is a family full of narcissistic sociopaths and Adult Children with mental problems, forever enabled by the media because everybody loves a good trainwreck. It’s too late for Nori to develop into a stable adult because the worst part of the damage has already been done. I feel sorry for everyone in that family, except Kris Jenner.

  62. angela says:

    i had a good laugh reading this….the kid has a nanny…her parents are always on vacation…how much more ME time does she need?

  63. cc says:

    This look is atrocious! the dress, the things around her neck, the makeup, the hair… and it’s freaking me out how her lower lashes are almost as long as the upper lashes, I suppose they’re both fake, but still, it’s too much Kim!

  64. LAK says:

    That dress is really bad. And being Balmain, it’s couture prices for a ready to wear dress.

    When is their tv show going to finally be cancelled and taken off the air?

  66. seaweed says:

    E! is not what it once was.

    Guilana Rancid needs to go, too.

  67. Spif says:

    The thing that REALLY bothers me: why does NO ONE shade Kanye for being an absent father? He’s not there to fly with her either! He sends a car! Big deal… He, besides Kim, has the money and means to take a break, take care of their baby and raise this lovely baby. Yes: Kim has some questionable patenthing skills, but there is a father too and no one holds him accountable for their baby’s wellbeing…

    • me says:

      I’ve read many comments and have stated myself that Kanye does not spend much time with his daughter.

    • TG says:

      You are right both parents spend as little time as possible with their child. Also that ridiculous birthday party theme that wasn’t appropriate for an infant looked half-a$$ed and it is being reported that IgNori’s birthday celebration was delayed because her birthday coincided with Father’s Day so I guess celebrating what a horrible father Kanye is is more important to them. Even if they use the excuse that work was the real reason that doesn’t fly either because didn’t Kanye cancel a concert to celebrate Kim’s birthday with that overthebtop tacky proposal? So he can cancel work when he decides it is important enough which means IgNori was appropriately named.
