I don't know if I'm just a nice person but I am so disturbed by the reaction people are having to EB's Facebook post about Kim Kardashian having a baby! People are saying things like "how much money can she make from it" "does she realize she can't just give it back after 3 months" "ït couldn't happen to a more self centered person" & "who cares she won't even change a nappy" & I'm sure there is much worse being said. Seriously these people are acting like they know her personally & they have nothing better to do than to put her down for bringing a new life into the world, like it some how offends/upsets them. I don't get it? I'm not saying you have to like her but judging her parenting before the baby is even born & making out that she doesn't deserves kids because people don't like her is pretty low in my opinion

I agree. Some of he things said about her are disgusting. I'm not a fan but I don't think she doesn't deserve a baby because of who she is.

I wouldn't say that she doesn't deserve kids, will be a bad mother or make any comment on her level of vanity. I do think though that it is pretty justified to question whether she will see her kids as a publicity opportunity given previous behaviour. If I'm honest, I couldn't give a crap what she does. If there were more people like me, she would be an an unknown nobody. I have never watched, read or bought anything to do with them. What are they all famous for exactly?

I understand what you're saying OP but I can also understand the reaction.
Kim Kardashian is famous for releasing a sex tape that included golden showers. She seems prepared to do anything to stay in the spotlight.
Personally, I wish the media would stop giving so much attention to the celebutants.

Kim's ex husband released the sex tape without consent & she successfully sued him for that. I think no matter what she does with the child she will be accused of using the child for publicity. Most celebrities sell the rights to baby photo's to at least one magazine & people love it. If Kim does it she is a greedy money hungry bad mother. I'm sure she has thick skin but I just don't know how people can get so passionate about it.

Oh, I've learnt something new (presuming it's true). I had no idea about the tape or the showers. Gross.

I agree. I read some real charmers the other day including people saying she's faking her pregnancy and will announce a miscarriage at any stage

It strikes me that this is the sort of publicity that the Kardashians are trading in. Without it, they'd be out of their current jobs. It does seem harsh to me but she makes her money by creating and selling an image of herself. Getting that image to sell means she needs to keep people talking. Any talk I've ever seen about her tends to be this lowbrow so I don't see why her pregnancy will be any different. Maybe she should try lifting the conversation herself and others might follow. When the conversation you set is me me me and what I did today you don't inspire much more.

I think it is because the woman is famous for putting her life on show for money.
It probably disturbs many people that she is bringing a child into that circus.
I think if the lady down the road was pregnant to her new boyfriend while still married to her previous husband (of three months) the local tongues would be wagging.
Ms Kardashian has courted a public profile and so the tongues that are wagging are all over the world.
What is the quote? "The only thing worse than being talked about is NOT being talked about...." - truly OP I cannot see the Kardashian money making publicity business being upset by the gossips.

Someone with no discernible talent puts their life on the screen for money, they lose people's respect. Simple really.
