This episode really caught my attention, in that Kim tries to play that she's just like everyone else, struggling with the COVID quarantine. In one segment, she went on about how Kanye likely had COVID, & was awaiting the test results, but in the meantime, he had to hole-up in his room, & he couldn't help or even see the kids, while she took him trays of food. Kim mentioned that it was hard doing everything by herself.
Later in the show, she & Saint went on a daytime walk to Kris' house, because she was out of Cheetos. So, did golden-child, North, at 6, babysit the other 2 kids, who were 2 & not even a year? Did Kanye come out of quarantine so that Kim & Saint could go for a walk & steal Cheetos? Or, does Kim have tons of help from nannies, that she dares not mention, meaning that she doesn't at all have to do everything by herself?
I don't care that she has nanny-help. It just bugs the snot out of me that she tries to make it seem like we were all living the same thing. We weren't. I took off work, except for 1 day a week; our family lost 80% of my income during that time. I did that because our daycare was only open to essential workers, & my job wasn't considered essential; my husband's was, thankfully for us. With no childcare options during a pandemic, I had to stay home with them, save for the 1 day a week that my husband was able to work-from-home. We didn't go anywhere but grocery shopping once a week (just my husband), if that, because it wasn't safe, so we were locked in our house & yard, for months. My story isn't unique at all, & I feel very fortunate that I was able to even work enough to retain 20% of my income, but it just drives me nuts that Kim makes it seem like we were all in the same boat, & in reality, besides being in public & shooting the show, little changed for her. The nannies took care of the kids, like they always do, when the kids aren't in school, & I'm sure she wasn't shlupping to Walmart pickup or Kroger as rarely as possible, to keep everyone safe.
Just had to get that off my chest. Happy Monday, friends!
