Kim Kardashian got a bouclé-covered Lambo & she flunked the baby bar again

Kim Kardashian posted this IG over the weekend, showing off her new Skims-themed Lamborghini. Let me explain, if I can. SKIMS is Kim’s wildly successful shapewear company, which is now branching out to loungewear and sportswear. Kim has been experimenting with designs and fabrics, including this stretchy bouclé for sweatpants and such. So she got a Lambo covered in that white terry/bouclé fabric and it’s the “Skims Lambo.” It’s insane. Genuinely insane.

Meanwhile, in the final season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim admitted that she “flunked” the baby bar exam, which is apparently some first-year law test given to law students in California who are working the kind of program Kim is doing. On the show, she claimed that she had Covid and that’s why she flunked the baby bar the first time she took it, last fall. So she retook it. And she flunked it again.

Kim Kardashian really needs the third time to be her charm — she flunked the baby bar exam on her second crack at it, and even did a little bit worse. Kim revealed the results of her test Thursday night on the series finale of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” which she needs to pass before she can get a chance to sit for the regular bar exam … to get her license to practice law.

She was on the phone with attorneys Erin Haney and Jessica Jackson — who helped her prep for the exam — when she got the bad news, and Kim went from excited to “totally bummed.” Kim says she failed with a score of 463, which is slightly lower than the 474 she got on her first attempt at the test. Students need a 560 to pass.

Although KK was clearly disappointed, she said she’s not going to stress about it because there are more stressful things going on, and she’s just gotta do better next time.

I mean… did she study harder the second time around? Is there some kind of prep course she can take to get better at baby bar exams? This is a big mess, Kim! Study harder! Less posing, less duck lips, less bouclé, less Lambo. Hit the books. I kind of wonder if we’ll hear, months from now, that she sort of gave up on law school.

The Photoshopping on her legs is insane as well.

    First, she isn’t experimenting with designs and fabrics – her hired designers are doing all the work. Second you can’t be studying for anything when you are constantly traveling.

  2. Cerise says:

    Super naco 🤢

  3. Anna says:

    I mean, people who go to actual law school and dedicate their lives to studying for the bar can fail. Not surprising that Kim can’t pass while studying in between superspreader events and sexy photo shoots.

    • Piratewench says:

      It’s true though, people who study hard still fail. It’s not a mark of unintelligence, this is just very very hard to pass. I believe kim has studied hard for it, I believe she is doing this to help others and so I’m in her corner on this one. Let her take it ten times, who cares?! If it means she lends her efforts to getting unjust sentences reduced, then it’s a GOOD thing. Believe it or not, Kim seems to have the actions of a good person from time to time. And this is one of them!

      • Lara says:

        People who give this wretched human (and anyone in her family) a pass for anything are extremely delusional. She straight up said she didn’t have much time to study because she had too many birthday parties to plan!!!

        She is doing this only to help her image and she is failing.

      • Kristen820 says:

        @Piratewench (LOVE it), absolutely! When my BFF and I were studying for our Life Producers exams, she CLEARLY knew the material better than I! She just gets horrible test anxiety.

        Intelligence and knowledge had zero to do with her having to take it multiple times.

      • Lightpurple says:

        Sorry, lawyer here. I don’t think she has actually studied at all. In the 2 and a half months between the time I finished law school to the day I took the exam, my life consisted of working 3 more weeks at my job until I quit, attending bar prep classes 4 hours each night for a month, attending my graduation and having dinner with my family that day, and studying every day from the time I woke up until I went to sleep that night. I studied while I ate simple meals that required minimal preparation. No days or nights off, no going out to dinner or to the beach or a movie, no watching television or listening to music, no phone calls to friends, except law school friends if I had a question or they had one for me. She has been way too visible in public to be putting in the necessary time.

      • josephine says:

        You’re talking about the actual bar exam, the one that come after 3 years of law school and is comprehensive. She’s taking the exam that tests if she’s absorbed what one would cover in the first year of law school – it’s much, much more limited. There’s no comparison. But there is also no comparison btw actually attending law school and what she’s doing. She’s (maybe) interested in a very narrow legal issue — she could seek to educate herself about that issue without pretending that she’s studying law more generally and more comprehensively. But that’s the thing about people like her — it’s always about the PR, the perception, the clicks, and never about the substance.

      • Arpeggi says:

        Your 2 first sentences are true but OMG! No, Kim hasn’t tried to study very hard. The path she chose is for ppl who already have experience and already working which she doesn’t have. Being coached a few hours a week between photoshoots, unnecessary travels in a pandemic (causing you and others to get sick), parties and shooting a reality show is not studying: it’s a plot line. She is delusional if she believes she can ever pass the bar without giving up her current lifestyle. She’s probably not stupid but she is ignorant and inexperienced so it means she needs to put even more work than many and she’s not

      • Chana says:

        I will also give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she’s working hard. Failing again would hurt her brand, and taking a selfie probably takes like an hour tops. The other day I was wondering what celebs do all day, since they work like 4-5 months out of the year. She just eats salad and takes selfies, not ridiculous to assume she has the time to work hard (if she wants to, which I think she does).

        (Also, really don’t like this line of logic that someone’s profession makes them de facto intelligent. I’ve come across tons of dumb lawyers. How many doctors and nurses in Ohio are claiming that the COVID vaccine gives you magnetic super powers?)

    • LightPurple says:

      @Josephine, I do realize that. For our first year law school exams, (I went nights, working full time during the day), we were in classed 3 nights a week – 2 of those nights 6 to 9:30 and the third night (Friday) 6 to 10. Weekends were spent in study group, usually 8 hours both Saturday and Sunday and those nights we weren’t in class were to prepare for class. I went months without seeing friends. And after that first set of exams? There is a 50 percent drop out rate. People who don’t put the time in don’t make it through.

    • h-barista says:

      K-life: “superspreader” “sexy photo shoots”


    • BostonLawyaGal says:

      Lawyer here – bar prep is SERIOUS business. I had seven weeks from graduation from law school (and exams) to prep for the bar. It required four hours of prep class a day, M-F and then studying/preparing all day every day. I studied while I ate, went to the bathroom, road the subway. It was endless studying all day every day.
      ALSO – she didn’t take the CA bar – which is a grueling three day test – she took an exam for people who don’t attend law school to make sure they get the basics of First Year (Contacts, Torts, Property, Constitutional Law) so that she can go on to continue to “self study” for the ACTUAL bar exam.
      So this was more akin to 1L end of year exams. And you don’t get multiple chances at those. You fail your exams, you get kicked out of law school and don’t get to be a lawyer. End of story. As someone who has dedicated the last fourteen years of my life as well as the $200k in student loans to becoming a lawyer, her celebrity pursuit of a degree/career that may would kill for makes me crazy. School is insanely expensive, law schools are super status focused and overlook students from “lesser” undergrad institutions, it is very difficult if not impossible to go at night and work a full time job, so you have to give up years of earning a living just for the shot at a legal career. It is hard and it is time-consuming and it’s relentless. It is NOT for celebrities who want a vanity project.

      • Mirage says:

        That being said, she scored 463 and to pass she needed 560. That’s not bad, she’s not far off!
        And indeed, it looks like she has a long road ahead of her. I hope she perserveres!

      • Anon says:

        So she can take these “pre-tests” multiple times?

      • Mrs. Odie says:

        Not far off? She scored almost 100 points too few to pass. I’d say that’s pretty bad. It’s like my student getting a 2 on the AP exam and saying it’s “not far off” from a 5. It’s actually VERY far off.

    • myjobistoprincess says:

      Kim studied to a level she considered hard, but probably isnt anywhere near how other students work hard for the bar. And that is because she has too much going on and is not able to dedicate herself to that only focus. sexy photo shoots, superspreader events, yes and also probably a little but of caregiving to the kids although Im pretty sure she has many handlers for 4 young kids.

  4. Kat says:

    She took the baby bar last June and failed and then retook in October, which was what was discussed on the series finale. The October attempt was when she had COVID. On the show she made it clear that she wasn’t expecting much from that attempt but thought she might as well try it.

    I know it’s not a popular take here to defend the Ks but I’m not sure “study harder” is the right take. A lot of people don’t pass the bar the first time (or few times!) and study plenty hard.

    • GrnieWnie says:

      Yeah, I think it’d be a really great example if she kept at it and passed. Kids face this situation all the time and I always try to encourage them by saying, keep at it. You definitely won’t pass if you don’t try again, so keep trying until you do!

      • JT says:

        I think people say “study harder” because it is clear she isn’t really studying. If anyone has taken a good look at her Instagram from the time she announced this training program, she isn’t in law school, they would see where her focus really is. Even during the pandemic she spent a great deal of time traveling and then filming for their show. I think after the initial sparkle wore off and the press surrounding this new venture faded, she got bored. She isn’t the average person working hard, studying away in a two bedroom apartment, while working a part time job, in actual law school. She’s a rich woman taking a specialized course, so to speak, who has other things going on that she actually cares more about. Kim moves from venture to venture and I imagine this law thing will be the same for her.

    • SurelyNot says:

      Eh – not buying it. This is the exam taken by FIRST YEAR law students – this is merely the first step. Under this pathway, she is required to spend 18 hours a week working with/for a local firm for 40 something weeks to earn ONE YEAR worth of credit — and at the end of her 4 years will have to actually pass the California bar exam. The exam consists of essay questions and multiple choice.
      I have my doubts about the actual scores being thrown out as well. I don’t think she is unintelligent, I just don’t think she has remotely fulfilled the requirements for this path.

      • Elaine Stritch says:

        The pass rate for the California baby bar is something like 20%. And the scores are public.

      • Arpeggi says:

        Exactly! It’s not just about the baby bar exam, she’s not even following the rules of the pathway she chose! Having lawyers coach you over zoom or at home is not close to working in a firm FOR lawyers at least half time for months! The whole things is a scam. She’s not acquiring experience, she’s not studying: off course she’s failing and will continue to do since she’s not putting the work.

      • TeeMajor says:

        EXACTLY!!!!! not putting in the work.

        She supposedly had Covid, eyeroll. She has to have an audience for everything. Stop seeking cheap attention and study.

        Hopefully they will go away, now that their show is kaput.

    • BeeCee says:

      This is what I was going to comment as well. She had Covid the second time she took the baby-bar, not the first time. So she didn’t care so much about passing, but hoped for a miracle to possibly pass.

      I do hope that she tries again. I’m sure with no longer filming, she’ll actually have more time to block everything out and study. And finally passing will be a nice victory

      • sal says:

        So many ding bats actually look up to the K’s…FINALLY one person in this family is sort of taking on a serious career with a goal of altruism. (prison reform?)
        I mean…it’s a better injection compared w butts & glam squads IMO

  5. Northerngirl says:

    This white lambo is gonna turn dirty real quick. Totally useless and stupid..

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Yes, it is an utter atrocity as well! Stupid people buy stupid things!

      As for the baby bar, it may be that KKKim isn’t book smart and she may not have what it takes. Furthermore, how would she commit herself to 4 years of law school with 4 small children, partying and flying off every month? If she truly wanted to pass, should would sit her ass down and study. To me, it’s a campaign of trying to do accomplish a goal without any heart to back it up.

    • Noodle says:

      I cannot drive five feet out of my garage without getting bird poop on my car. Can you imagine it in boucle texture?? So gross.

      • MoP says:

        Perhaps the texture will hide it. Wonder if it turns into a sponge if it gets wet.

      • CL says:

        @Mop – I was also wondering about what would happen if it got wet. It’s be hilarious if it just puffed up like a blowfish.

    • Starkille says:

      Anyone who would commit such an atrocity on that beautiful car …I don’t even have words.

    • BeeCee says:

      I’d image that it’s just for show and promotion of SKIMS, and It’ll be taken off quickly.

      It’s covering all air intake and ventilations to the engine, so it wouldn’t be safe to drive around with it on.

      • observer says:

        yeah this looks like it was decorated ONLY for the promo photoshoot, the fabric was probably taken off immediately after they were done

      • Heat says:

        That’s what I was thinking, also. Just brand promo; I don’t even think that would be street legal.
        I don’t hate it. It’s silly and overly extravagant, but that is also her “brand”.

    • Suzybontime says:

      You said it!

  6. Esmom says:

    So she thinks she’s going to become a lawyer by bypassing the traditional route of law school?

    I assume that car is not street legal.


  7. Deb says:

    This is kinda sad. Ridiculous, yes. On so many levels. I find the Kardashians to just be beyond ridiculous in general. But still, the kinda sad is coming off of this in waves. The desperate “ pay attention to me” vibe of Kim’s life has reached a new pinnacle with this post.

  8. Erica says:

    I know the Kardashians are out of touch (as most celebrities) but I have a special hatred in my heart for people like Kim (and her family) who constantly flaunt their wealth, especially in a time like this. When a pandemic has ravaged the world, millions are out of work, businesses have closed for good due to the pandemic, millions are dead, parents are at their wits end trying to work from home and help their kids figure out virtual learning. Then there is Kim and her family traveling all over the damn place, showing off their Lamborghini’s and their insane wealth while the rest of us plebs suffer.

    I hate this family.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Erica, I do as well and I am not in their demographics, but I have never understood their popularity, one bit. They have an unethical Momager who will go to any lengths to make them famous and sell them out. The entire family lacks any form of compassion, depth or empathy, they are purely selfish and delusional.
      Plus, to post this ugly display with her body tells you that this is the only thing that she knows she can offer, that and her love life.

    • SurelyNot says:

      @ Erica – same.

      Knowing that so much (if not most) is actually comped as well for exposure makes me doubly ill — knowing those resources could be funneled elsewhere but are instead used to promote…gluttony.
      It is even more disheartening to realize there is a big enough market to keep this entire family and their asses of lies going.

    • FHMom says:

      Everything about these people is vulgar. I don’t get the appeal. They are a real life freak show.

  9. Robyn says:

    It’s the obscene wastefulness of it all for me.

    • Lucy2 says:

      Me too. Wasteful, pointless, and obsessed with gross flaunting of wealth. Typical for her.

    • STRIPE says:

      Obscene is the right word here. I just doubt she’ll take it out of her driveway. I could be wrong, but as far as I can see, this is a multi hundred thousand dollar Instagram accessory.

  11. OriginalLala says:

    I know they are still plenty popular but the Kardashian-Jenner clan have always seemed pathetic to me – so desperate for attention, fame and money. I can’t imagine how empty and shallow their lives must be. It’s pathetic frankly.

  12. Mina_Esq says:

    She is totally writing off the cost of that Lambo! As for the baby bar – I have no idea what it is like, but the real bar exam that i took was intense (well, there were two parts taken over two days). It’s not just about learning content. It’s more about being able to apply that content in a very short period of time. I timed out the max i could spend on any one question. If I I ran out of time, I guessed and moved on. That’s where years of practice through law school help.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Lawyer here too. The Texas bar was three days. People were puking in the bathroom. The bar review course I did (after graduating from three years of law school) was something like eight hours per day for eight weeks. It’s a LOT.

      I knew plenty of people in law school who I did not think were very smart who are now lawyers. But passing the bar isn’t just memorizing a bunch of stuff and spitting it back out. It changes the way you think and look at the world. Kim clearly hasn’t put in the time necessary for that to happen.

      • LightPurple says:

        That would have been me! The RI bar was the third bar exam I took and passed over 3 years. I was already licensed in MA, NH, and RI federal. My RI waiver was up and I needed to pass to keep my job. The final day was all essays. Three of us from my office took it, I finished 90 minutes before the end. Nobody else had finished yet. I sat there reading and re-reading it, changing nothing, and it made less and less sense each time, especially the last question. I was getting more nauseous by the second. Finally, as I was realizing that my body wasn’t going to hold out much longer, a guy turned his test in and left. I dashed to the front of the room, test booklet in my outstretched hand, whispered I’m done as I handed it to the clerk,, running by her towards the ladies room. She chased after me, asking if I was okay. I wasn’t but made it to he stall just in time. I realized that she and my test booklet were in the stall with me! She asked if I was sure I was finished the test. Yes! I cleaned up and went outside to wait for the guys to finish so we could go for drinks. Of the three of us, I was the only one to get that last question right.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        OMG that’s horrific! This is a serious business and not for the faint of heart. It’s like Kim went into this for funsies and had no idea what she was getting in to.

      • lucy2 says:

        My professional licensing exam used to be 2 full days, and then they finally broke it down into multiple parts. When I did it, it was 7 parts, and each was about 4-5 hours. The organization that runs it keeps pushing for people to take it earlier in their careers, right out of school, and it’s ridiculous – you need the work experience to deal with most of the questions.

        I agree she probably isn’t putting in the time she should if she’s serious about it.

    • Eurydice says:

      I don’t think she has to write off anything. Her IG says it’s a new Lambo, but it doesn’t say that it’s HER Lambo.

  13. Louise177 says:

    Don’t most people who take the bar exam fail 2 or 3 times? I don’t think it’s fair to attack Kim for failing. She probably could have studied more but was going through a lot at the time.

    • Erica says:

      Going through a lot as in partying, traveling, and photoshoots? Sure, her marriage was in trouble but lets not act like she really knows how to buckle down and study even if she was in a good marriage. She didn’t take this seriously at all.

    • Lightpurple says:

      I don’t know where you got those numbers but no, absolutely not. While it varies from state to state, the national first time pass rate is over 70%. Most, if not all, states require the one day multistate test (multiple choice test of 6 subjects) as part of the exam. And if you don’t pass the first time, your chances of passing decrease each time you take it.

      I have taken 3 state bar exams and a federal bar exam. I passed every single one on the first try.

      • Purplehazeforever says:

        I’m in that 30%…I passed on my third try,I know someone who passed on their sixth try…it’s not impossible. I just had to prep with actually using a timer. I didn’t study all day, I took breaks. I also studied at kitchen table, not in bedroom. I made it a routine, like it was a job.

      • LightPurple says:

        Good for you for realizing what changes you had to make and getting through it.

  14. Purplehazeforever says:

    Only in California for the untraditional route to becoming a lawyer…I digress. Bar exams are hard. You can study hard & still fail so I’m not going to knock her for failing. I just think that every lawyer that reads this gets a bit aggravated with her, not with her intentions but with the fact she’s trying to bypass schooling. Education is important, what’s the lesson is she teaching her kids? Law school does prep you, somewhat for the bar exam. First year of law school does, lol. It’s the timing of yourself during exams. I just think going to school, going through that, actually prepping for the bar & sitting for it, is the way to go.

  15. Amy T says:

    I just came over here to say that the one thing I respect her for is this whole bar exam thing, and I hope she figures out that she needs to just disappear for awhile and do nothing but study, does it, passes, and then disappears again to do the full bar exam. I’m not a lawyer, but I understand that the California bar exam is one of the toughest in the country. I wish her well on this – it will send a powerful message to her children that she isn’t giving up and an even more powerful message when she passes.

  16. Truthiness says:

    Who has time to study when you have to take hundreds of selfies to curate into the best few for advertising her peak moments of shallow pretension? She’s no billionaire, Forbes was paid off and women complain about the fat rolls her support garments make for them. If you want to be a lawyer you actually have to work for it.

  17. Canadi-Anne says:

    Another lesson on how money can’t buy class.

  18. detritus says:

    I mean, I feel accomplished when I wear a shirt with buttons and a collar these days.

    She’s gone through a divorce and tried to do the baby bar while parenting and running a business. I’ll give her respect for trying.

    • Watson says:


    • H says:

      Parenting? She has nannies and cooks, she literally has the time to study. My mother passed the CA bar on the first try in the 1970′s when women were still being denied jobs in law firms b/c they were women. Kim is playing for the cameras and I have no respect for that. If she stopped her IG crap for 6 months, said I’m going dark to study, THEN I’ll give her props, until then…nah.

    • NorthStar says:


      I passed three state bar exams in my first four years of practice- including California. We don’t need to mock Kim for putting up some serious points on the baby bar. She hasn’t even finished college! All this while getting a divorce during a pandemic, mothering (if not fully caregiving), and uh “working.”

      Kim decided to study law when she was confronted with an injustice- I can’t say say same for 99% of my colleagues (and that’s fine). I hope she throws some serious financial resources into her sentencing/pardon work once she’s got a solid legal foundation, but for now, I’m going to limit my mockery to that horrible lambo skims skin. Blech.

      • JS says:

        no, she didn’t decide to study law. people who do that, especially with her resources, go to law school and focus. the fact that she hasn’t finished college is directly relevant. she could, if she wanted to- she has money and time, and intelligence. but that would be work, and not the fun kind. so she doesn’t. and she’s treating law school the same way. she’d do much more good by just focusing on her justice-related efforts without this vanity project. hell she could just finish regular college with a criminal justice degree an accomplish as much. that’s how you know it’s about her ego and her TV show.

  19. Chaine says:

    Surprise surprise, it’s tough for a person who hasn’t gone to college or law school to pass a bar exam! This is the outcome of parents telling their children “You can do anything if you set your mind to it” which is a crock of BS. It’s not enough just to want something, you have to put in the blood, sweat, and tears. No sympathy for her. She finally encountered a thing she cannot buy.

  20. swirlmamad says:

    This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen…….although this IS the Kardashians we are talking about. Can you imagine how filthy that will be after one drive? LMAO.

    • ME says:

      To me it just looks like a “Skims car cover” they most likely just removed after the photoshoot?

    • detritus says:

      I refuse to believe this is anything other than a cover.
      If she glued it down omg

  21. February-Pisces says:

    Good for Kim for actually trying. I’m not sure why she’s doing it, I just think she wants to prove to people that she’s a lot smarter than she looks. I actually believe she will pass it eventually, she just has that determination to make it happen.

    • JS says:

      But I think that’s the issue. She doesn’t appear to be putting in the work. She seems to think that fancy lawyer friends and part time tutors and being rich are a substitute for the real work of law school and studying, which is not fancy. It’s a lot of reading and a lot of writing. I don’t think she’s stupid, just that she’s not really interested in doing the work. If she was actually serious and actually determined, she’d do it right. she’s interested in doing a little of the work, and talking about it a lot, and taking vacations to recover from it, and running her business ventures. that’s all fine – but to pretend she’s a serious law student is ludicrous and makes a mockery of the people who are willing to work hard.

  22. ME says:

    She’s not technically in Law School. She’s not earning a Law Degree. She’s studying to pass the Baby Bar. She hired lawyers and professors to help her study. She has nannies, chefs, maids, and no 9 to 5 job she has to go to everyday.. Everything is done for her. She has all the time in the world to study. She, instead, chooses to cram her studying into a few weeks before the Baby Bar. That is not enough Kim ! I think she’s delusional. She needs to realize this is no joke. People spend months in isolation studying for the Baby Bar and Bar exams. They aren’t going on vacations, partying, or posing in bikinis in front of books. She’s taking the Baby Bar again this month but she doesn’t seem to have learned her lesson.

    • Claire says:

      She has to take it this third time and pass in June, because if she fails, and subsequently passes at some later date, she will only get credit for the first year of study. If she’s sincere, hire a damn tutor and step away from the flocked Lambos.

      • ME says:

        The thing is she hired actual lawyers as well as a Law Professor to help her study since day one. Her problem is she seems to think this is easier than it actually is. She’s not putting in enough time. You can’t vacation and party while trying to study for a very difficult exam like this.

  23. Hyrule Castle says:

    Thing is, most who choose this route to being a lawyer have worked on the field, or at least like, worked.
    In a job where deadlines, actually doing work is there.

    Or university, which teaches you to think, 3-4 years of some sort of study to at least have some understanding how to actually study.
    How to organize oneself. The mental discipline needed.

    She, what? Was famous for her show, her tape, her business that others ran and did the work.
    She shows up, takes a picture, calls herself a business person.

    She’s not. She’s privileged, and some luck involved.

    She’s no idea HOW to study at this level. Playing around at the WH being an “advocate” is NOT the same, and she’s making a laughing stock of al the people who follow this path with genuine intentions.

    She’s sickening.

  24. Mel says:

    This is all about attempting to position herself away from Kanye. How is she studying between planning the tacky superspreader parties and constantly taking selfies of herself to post on IG? Insert eye roll here….

  25. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    This is so stupid…the real question is, from what is she trying to distract us with this spectacle?

  26. Bettyrose says:

    Serious question: Did Kim go to college? If she does pass the bar, even with the help of exorbitantly paid tutors…it’ll really call into question the lengthy and expensive path of 7 years of schooling including undergrad to become a lawyer.

    • Claire says:

      I believe she attended a bit, but did not graduate. As to your second point, can’t agree. If you look at the skewness of the statistics of who passes the CA bar exam (the actual bar exam) the pass rate for “non-traditional” test takers is not great, something like 25% (and all those people passed the baby bar exam) compared to those who attended an accredited law school, which is something like 80%. Oh who cares, she’s never going to pass, and will move onto something else…

      • Bettyrose says:

        With the combined cost of college and law school, a 25% pass rate for people who go straight into a non traditional legal path from high school would still be pretty appealing. The 75% who don’t pass would gain valuable employment skills. Let’s revisit this discussion if she ever passes the bar, but that it’s even a possibility for someone with minimal higher education and no indication of greater than average intelligence still raises questions about the traditional path.

    • ME says:

      She went to Community College for a year or so and then dropped out. She was studying Massage Therapy.

    • NorthStar says:

      I don’t know if she ever attended college, but if so, she didn’t for long. I’m not here to criticize a non-traditional path to becoming a lawyer – I have six figures of student loans with astronomical interest rates.

      She is a ways away from getting a law license though. I’m hopeful her studies are foundational for some philanthropy and advocacy around sentencing issues and disparities.

  27. why? says:

    The problem is that the press is giving Kim way more credit than she deserves. Kim didn’t study, she didn’t even make the effort to study. She traveled, partied, took a lot of selfies, set up staged photo-ops just about every other day, leaked stories about divorcing Kanye and dating Van Jones, leaked stories about how easy her exams were and how she had a full understanding of the material, and set up fake studying photo-ops(the book was new and her notes were facing the wrong way). I wonder if Kris was going to buy Kim the law degree, but then the celebrity college admissions scandal broke and she had to hold off on buying the degree until the press moved on or things went quiet. I thought that they were going to do this the first and second time she took the exam, maybe they are going to go this route the third time.

    The “Kim shouldn’t be ashamed because most people fail the bar” defense can’t even be applied to Kim because she had opportunities and privileges that other people studying for the baby bar didn’t and don’t have. She had a team of mentors, Van Jones, Kayne and her mother’s money, a lot of free time(nannies take care of her kids and she doesn’t have a job that requires her to take 8-12 hours out of her day), and was probably allowed to take the test under different testing conditions. Kim should have gotten above a 560, especially after all those articles where she bragged about how easy this all was for her. The fact that she failed a second time and her score was even lower shows that she never studied. Unless her definition of studying is taking selfies with new books and notes facing backwards.

    For anyone who watched the show, when Kim failed the first time(administered in June/results in mid-August) and second time(administered in October/results in mid-December) did they breakdown how many questions she got correct on the multiple choice and how many points she received on the essay portion? Did she score 400 on the multiple choice and do poorly on the essay? Did she score 400 on the essay and do poorly on the multiple choice? Was it approximately half and half, 200-274/263 for either section?

  28. teresa says:

    I wish her luck, but she lacks what others who go to Law School have, that is the ability to study. Studying is not fun, and when I was in grad school I took no time off to go to some island and vacation with my friends. I wrote and studied all the time, that’s it, that’s all I did.

  29. Amando says:

    Ugh…I can’t be the only person sick of celebs flaunting their wasteful purchases. What a stupid idea for a car. And I laughed at her failing the bar again. It’s the only thing her money can’t buy!

  30. Jannie says:

    It’s not her job to lead her own company or take actual part in prison reform, it’s her job to piss people off with this kind of ridiculous pictures by flaunting her wealth to common consumers. It is actually surprising to me non of the Kardashian children are smart enough to follow their father’s footsteps. Their mom seems was heavily influenced by the misogynistic idea of how women’s success should be measured.

  31. Joanna says:

    Unbelievable how many passes Kim gets from people.

  32. questions says:

    Well, at least she tried, I guess. I haven’t tried the same thing, so I feel weird for judging her on this. I don’t think the world of lawyers was dying to work with her so it’s hard for me to feel much of anything about this. If she passed, that would be quite interesting in terms of what steps people can take without going through the traditional route. If she didn’t, the world still moves on without a great loss to the legal world.

    Did she invent those poses or were they always a thing? I see a lot of people posing on Instagram like this, and I don’t get it.

  33. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    And today I was notified how much braces are going to cost for my son. I have absolutely zero ideas how this is going to happen lol. Ramen for two years? Possibly.


    People sure do love to complain about the Kardashians not contributing or doing anything to better society with their money / influence, but when Kimberly is helping get people out of prison and trying to better herself and her world a little, these same people just want to tear her down and criticize her. Seems a lot like haters are just going to hate…….

  35. NorthStar says:

    Incarceration has a serious impact on entire families – with a disparate impact on minorities. That’s what Kim said inspired her to do this. Instead of just doing the WH photo ops, she decided to do one of tbe most tedious and time consuming things by studying law, and educating herself on the thing she became impassioned about. This is unusual and admirable. Sure, it’s plot. But it’s good plot.

    I’m a public interest attorney representing only incarcerated clients. I went to a good law school and passed the bar in three states, but what I’m proudest of is my work. Some of the reaction to Kim makes me think many lawyers view passing tbe bar, or graduating from law school as their biggest accomplishment.

    All I have to say is that covering that car in white fabric is just stupid. It’s a waste of fabric and beyond impractical. Even if it’s just for one day. Just dumb.
