Kendall Jenner Laments Fame: It Hurts My Modeling Career!

Break out the violins, folks. This is a very sad story.

In the latest issue of Love (which features Kendall Jenner topless on the cover), Kendall Jenner is asked about her modeling career and grows snippy when the subject of her fame is broached.

Being the sister of Kim Kardashian has clearly helped her professional aspirations, right? Wrong, Kendall claims.

"I want to be taken seriously," Jenner tells the magazine. "People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn’t. What I have has almost worked against me."

Really, Kendall? Please explain...

"I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn’t take me seriously as a model,” she says. “Because of the TV show."

We have two responses to this quote:

  1. You are full of it. You went from having no real modeling experience to walking the runway in Paris because of your last name.
  2. Quit your TV show then.

Jenner says she prefers when casting directors do not recognize her, while Kim says of her half-sibling:

"She had to work extra hard to gain this respect and to fight for people to see she’s serious. Marc Jacobs gave her a real shot and treated her like any other model… Then Riccardo [Tisci] and Karl [Lagerfeld] gave her a chance and she has proven that she is the real deal."

That may be so. But it's absurd to pretend as if her fame did not play a HUGE role in getting Kendall's foot in the modeling door.


It does seem like her modeling career is important to Kendall. That much I have no problem with. She IS a very beautiful girl. I agree though, you want to be taken seriously, then act it & get off the show & out from under mom's control. The last thing I saw about Kendall was on TV the other night as I was channel surfing. She & Kylie ran off from the family & no one knew where they were. Grow up & ACT responsible. If you have an issue with the family (it seemed they were annoyed with mom or maybe both their parents) tell them you need/want some space & tell SOMEBODY where you will be. They were in Thailand! NOT smart for 2 pretty young girls to go off on their own in Thailand.


She has entitlement issues just like the rest of the Klan. You want to be taken seriously? Act seriously. Leave the show. Move far away from your idiot Pimp mother and plastic sisters before you inject so much plastic into your lips butt and boobs you look as ridiculous as the Wide-Load.
