“That statement that I said was without questions and conversation around it, and it became a sound bite really with no context,” she said. “In that sound bite, I came off of the notion and the question right before, which was, after 20 years of being in the business, you’re famous for being famous. And my whole tone and attitude changed with the previous question that went into that question about what advice would you give to women.
“And the advice that I would give is just that … having a social media presence and being on a reality show does not mean overnight success, and you have to really work hard to get there, even if it might seem like it’s easy and that you can build a really successful business off of social media, and you can if you put in a lot of hard work.”

Finally, Kardashian explained, “It wasn’t a blanket statement towards women, or to feel like I don’t respect the work or think that they don’t work hard. I know that they do. It was taken out of context, but I’m really sorry if it was received that way.”
In the original Variety interview, Kardashian had said, “I have the best advice for women and business. Get your f**king ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days,” Kim Kardashian. “You have to surround yourself with people that want to work.”
The full interview with Kardashian will air in an ABC special on Wednesday, April 6.
