Kim Kardashian West tried to be wittily sarcastic, on what pregnant women should wear, but her answer backfired.
Ellie interviewed Kim, Khloe and Kourtney as they hosted an event in New Jersey for future military mothers who are pregnant while their husbands are deployed. In the interview, she was asked what sort of fashion pregnant women should wear. Kim's answer was, "I recommend hiding for a good year and having no pregnancy style. That’s what I recommend. If you can do it, hide. Never leave the house." When Khloe told Kim that wasn't practical to give another answer, Kim responded with, "That’s really my recommendation. Wear a huge blanket."
Us Weekly explained Kim's answer might have been based on her own experiences while she was pregnant with North. She didn't hide in the house or under a blanket. She saved the blanket for North whenever she took her out in public. Kim frequently went out in public and attended gala occasions. Reporters kept remarking on the amount of weight she gained along with the figure hugging style of clothes she wore.
As the backlash of angry comments poured out over her advice to other pregnant mothers, Kim took to Twitter to explain her remarks. She posted, "I guess you can't be sarcastic when doing interviews! I was asked about tips on pregnancy style....."
Kim continued in another post, "I jokingly said pregnant woman should hide/stay in if they looked like I did lol. I said ask Kourt her tips bc she has the best preg style"
So what does Kim advise herself to do on future interviews? Her solution was " I really should start video taping the interviews I do & post on my website so u can see the laughs & how it's really said"
During the interview, Kim admitted to still wearing A Pea in the Pod tank tops when she works out. She likes them because they are really long.
Was Kim really joking or does she really believe that pregnant women should hide in the house and wear a blanket? Perhaps that is why the rumors are circulating that Kim is quitting the TV reality show, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," because she is pregnant with her second child. Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens in this ever changing story.
