Mother of three, Kim Kardashian, is addressing how she feels about the recent college admissions scandal.
The 38-year-old reality TV star and beauty mogul has tremendous influence in many areas of pop culture but doesn’t believe in using her clout to assist her kids in their future endeavors, academic or otherwise
While appearing on Van Jones‘ show on CNN, the star insisted she would never use her “privilege” to help get her kids into a college they couldn’t get into themselves.[irp posts=10215]
“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 explained. “That’s what I see is not appropriate.”
She and husband Kanye West are focused on teaching their kids to “be kind” and remain “as grounded as possible” despite their celebrity status. “To buy your way into something just wouldn’t benefit anybody,” she said.
Kardashian is currently studying to become a lawyer even though she never finished college. She wants to set a good example for her kids and teach them “it’s never too late” to finish your degree.
Among those charged in the college scam, nicknamed “Operation Varsity Blues” by the FBI, are actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, who allegedly paid large sums of money to get their children into elite colleges.
Felicity Huffman may avoid jail time for her role in the college admissions scandal due to her lack of criminal history, her decision to plead guilty, her display of remorse, and the relatively small amount she paid.
Prosecutors have claimed that Huffman paid $15,000 to a Harvard graduate to correct her daughter’s SAT score, giving her a 400-point boost.[irp posts=9915]
Other parents, including Full House actress Lori Loughlin, allegedly paid as much as $500,000 in the scam.
“Lori is constantly arguing with Mossimo Giannulli because she is beginning to grasp that they are in very serious jeopardy,” a source told the magazine.
A second source went on to say that Loughlin’s friends are siding with her in the scandal and think that Giannulli is to blame.
