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:
- You are full of it. You went from having no real modeling experience to walking the runway in Paris because of your last name.
- 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.
