Kim Kardashian issued a warning to fans on Keeping Up with the Kardashians last night:
Enjoy my naked photos while you can, she basically said, because you'll only have them to ogle for about another decade or so!
About one month after news broke that Kardashian was studying to become a lawyer, the reality star expounded on her plans in far more detail on the latest installment of this E! hit.
In a revealing few minutes of the show, Kim opened up about her decision to start a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco last summer, with the goal of taking the bar exam in 2022.
She is NOT messing around, people.
Unbeknownst to many, the 38-year old has been working with author and CNN commentator Van Jones and attorney Jessica Jackson, cofounders of #cut50, a national bipartisan advocacy group on criminal-justice reform, for months, visiting prisons, petitioning governors.
As you likely do know well by now, she successfully petitioned President Donald Trump last year to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a nonviolent drug offender.
And she said last night that prison reform is atop her list of priorities going forward.
“It’s kind of crazy because I’m learning it all as I go,” she said on camera.
“I spend more time on this than I do anything else. It’s insane but it’s so fun to be around people that are super smart and get it and want the same thing.”
Kim's father was an attorney.
He famously helped defend O.J. Simpson in his 1994 murder trial.
Kardashian said on air that her dad discouraged her way back in the day from joining this family business, but that working on behalf of Johnson has "motivated" her to try again.
“I remember in the OJ case, I would go be going through it and Kourtney would yell at me: ‘Stop going through all of dad’s stuff!’ ” she said of how she's always had an interest in the law.
Added Kim along these lines:
"My dad always taught me that hard work is really important and to really commit to things, so my goal would be in like, 10 years, to give up being Kim K and just focus on this and be an attorney and fight for so many deserving people.”
It would seemingly be very easy to make fun of Kim Kardashian here.
It seems insane of her to think she's gonna suddenly become a successful and important lawyer, right?
This is the same woman who is only famous because she had sex with Ray J on camera.
But she actually does seem to acknowledge that it will take time -- and let's imagine for a moment that she can pull it off.
We've mocked Kim on so many occasions in the past for NOT using her global influence on anything more useful that offering terrible diet tips and/or promoting ridiculous weight loss supplements.
We're not about to hurl any shade now when Kardashian talks about using it for the actual greater good.
“I’m dealing with my three kids, I’m dealing with my career, the fourth baby coming and the stress of law school,” Kim said of the challenges ahead.
“Just because you do an apprenticeship does not mean that it’s anything less - I mean, you have to put in 18 hours a week. It is a full commitment. I won’t have time for events, for favors, for friends, for literally anything, for four years.”
Kanye West is fully on board, however, and Kim has always said she works hard.
Here is her chance to prove it.
“I’m not afraid to work hard,” she concluded. “It’s going to be really hard but it’s also really important to me to keep this quiet for a while so I can stay committed and focused.”
