The Kardashians Exposed For Editing Kim Kardashian’s Business “Advice”

For those not in the loop, Kris Jenner and her daughters Kim, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian sat down with Variety in March for a now-viral video interview in which Kim offered some controversial business “advice.”

“I have the best advice for women in business,” Kim said. “Get your damn ass up and work. Nobody seems to want to work anymore. You have to surround yourself with people who want to work.”

Back then, Kim’s comments quickly went viral on social media, with many people labeling the advice “untouched” and “offensive.” Fans have criticized the business mogul for lecturing the general public about success without acknowledging the very significant fact that she was born into a life of immense privilege.

It’s probably true that the Kardashians work hard and Kim seems to have the most hustle of the group. But to ignore pre-career privilege — a famous, overflowing father & the vast LA network that included Paris Hilton at the height of her fame — is deaf at best, abusive at worst.

Kim finally addressed the negative discourse during an appearance Good morning America, where she defended her words and insisted the quote had been taken out of context. That being said, however, fans had no idea how Kim had responded to all the backstage backlash.

That is, until this week’s episode of the Hulu reality series The Kardashians aired on Thursday. The episode was filmed while all Variety drama was unfolding, and fans were excited to finally see the extended edit of Kim’s controversial comments.

However, viewers were surprised — and frankly disappointed — to see that the Hulu show had cunningly excised some of Kim’s “advice.”

In the episode, Kim says, “I have the best advice for women in business. Get your damn ass up and work.” However, instead of hearing her now infamous line, “Nobody wants to work these days,” the footage cuts straight to her, saying, “Success is never easy. If you make an effort, you will see results.”

Well, the inconsistency certainly didn’t go unnoticed by eagle-eyed fans, many of whom were quick to take to Reddit to accuse the Kardashians of “obviously altering the narrative” when discussing the edit.

“They cut out Kim and said, ‘It seems like nobody wants to work anymore,'” pointed out one user. “lol they obviously change the narrative about us.”

“I noticed they changed it. I stopped watching right after that,” wrote another.

“The whole Vanity Fair interview scene was weird,” said a third. “[The] how they cut out their line “nobody wants to work anymore”. Like sister, we all know what you said and you can’t take it back.”

“They think they’re smart enough to cut out the gross parts of REAL LIFE. Like babes…this interview got posted, got spread, got notorious. You had to sit down and apologize for what you SPECIFICALLY said about women not working hard enough. Why do they think they can just erase our memories MiB style,” echoed another.

And fans were all the more upset about the edit when Kim later in the episode insisted people don’t know the real “story” behind her family’s advent.

“Yeah, we grew up privileged, but people don’t know the story of how your dad and mom had to sell their house in Hidden Hills because they couldn’t afford it and had to move into an apartment,” Kim told Kendall.

“Mom really started her career and was making money at 50, so growing up and seeing how busy she was and how she got up every day with all these kids, six of her, that she had to take care of … I saw how she looked.” work your ass off and find out,” she continued.

In a confessional, Kim continued to insist that she had to work “extra hard” to be “taken seriously.” She said: “I think people would assume I got everything to be on a TV show, but being on a reality show – let alone being a reality show girl with a sex tape – doesn’t open anything doors.”

“I always felt like I had to work extra hard and harder to be taken seriously and for people to forget my past,” she added.

Meanwhile, her sisters Khloé and Kendall defended Kim wholeheartedly, accusing the entire internet of “gaslighting” them. Khloé even reduced the fans’ criticism to mere “noise,” while telling Kim that “none of this is real.”

Understandably frustrated by this, several fans pointed out that the KarJenners didn’t accept “accountability” and became “defensive,” rather than taking on board some of the valid criticism.

“Rather than maturely thinking about it and absorbing all the criticism in a way that she can work with and grow with, she got defensive, doubled down, played the victim and has now tried to change the narrative,” one person said.

“They didn’t take the time at all to understand why it pissed people off,” agreed another. “Rather than choosing to essentially double down with some forced humility, ‘Yes, we were born with a silver spoon, but we had to sell our million-dollar mansion at one point’ … Talk to me when you have a few meals.” have to skip because you have to keep the lights on.”

A third user wrote, “They took charge in this episode 0…quite disappointing but not surprising.”
