Kim Kardashian shares her views on the college cheating scandal in an upcoming interview with CNN’s Van Jones, insisting that she would never take the route that’s left stars Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin facing prison time.
“If they couldn’t get into a school, I would never want to use privilege to try to force them into a situation that they wouldn’t thrive in anyway,” she says of her children in the interview set to air Saturday night. “That’s what I see as not appropriate.”
During the interview, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star says paying bribes to get her kids into a college isn’t something she’d consider.
“I want my kids to be as grounded as possible,” she says. “To buy your way into something just wouldn’t benefit anybody.”
She also chats with Jones about her decision to attend law school, and how her children are perceiving her new quest to become a lawyer.
“Having my kids see me studying, leaving and going into an office a few days a week, studying all the time coming home — I have my backpack they have their backpack. Them seeing that I have this filming career and having makeup samples tested all on my arm while I’m trying to read my flashcards,” explains Kardashian, 38.
“I hope they get inspired to know that they can put in the hard work and even though I’m in my late 30s and just finishing college — it’s never too late and there really is no easy way out,” she adds.
With her amped-up workload, Kardashian says that husband Kanye West is picking up the slack. “During the week at night, there’s a lot of time I’m like, ‘Babe, you need to take the kids.’ He’s honestly really stepped it up and I’m so grateful to him for doing that,” she continues.
