We know that the women of the “Real Housewives of New York City” have no qualms about sharing their personal life with the public, but is it their place to share their opinions of other celebs? In a recent interview with OK! Magazine, Jill Zarin criticized the Kardashians (specifically Kim) for setting a bad example–a move that I think borders on disrespectful and presumptuous.
Don’t get me wrong, my issue with this story is not that I necessarily disagree with Zarin’s comments about the Kardashians. The family has immense power thanks to their fame, and thousands of young girls look to the Kardashian clan as a role model for what they might become. That being said, I don’t think Kim’s romantic track record is one that should be imitated by women across America, and I do get frustrated when she fails to use her popularity to the best of her ability.
But is it Zarin’s duty to critique Kim and Kanye West for having a child before marriage? I’m not so sure about that. First of all, since when is it okay for celebrities to come out and criticize each other’s life choices in the tabloids? It seems like a dirty move, and I doubt that Zarin would be pleased if someone else did the same to her. Moreover, Zarin herself is setting a bad example when she does something so tasteless and, to be honest, unkind towards a fellow female celebrity. Maybe instead of talking poorly about others, Zarin should be promoting a message of mutual support among girls.
My overall reaction to Zarin’s interview is that it was catty and immature. Beyond that, after watching Zarin on several seasons of “Real Housewives” it goes without saying that some of her actions were not the most admirable. Perhaps someone should let her know that people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
What do you think? Is it okay for Zarin to speak out against the Kardashians? Do you agree with her, or are you team Kimye? Let us know!Tags: jill zarin, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, the real housewives of new york city
