Why You Can’t Be A Judgmental Judy: Kim Kardashian Tells Cosmo She Judged Sister Kourtney For Having Kids Out Of Wedlock

February 27, 2013  |  

We know what you’re thinking. Why in the hell are you talking about Kim Kardashian again!? Well, slow your roll and bear with us, because we thought we could all learn a little somethin’ somethin’ from her honesty about being a judgmental Judy not too long ago.

In the latest issue of Cosmopolitan, Kim Kardashian decided to open up to the magazine about motherhood, her relationship with Kanye, and her family. We found that the most interesting tidbit of the whole interview came when she discussed her sister Kourtney, a seemingly happy mother of two, and her past disappointment with Kourtney’s decision to have children with Scott Disick when the two were not married. Specifically, having their first child, Mason, in 2009. However, she quickly realized that Kourt’s family life was much more fulfilled and happy than her own:

“I was like, ‘You’re not married! How could you do this?’ I was really firm and strict. But she was like, ‘Marriage isn’t what I want.’ And later, I realized she had a better family life than I did.”

I’m sure we can all think of someone, maybe even ourselves, who has given someone the side eye for bringing a child into the world without a ring on their finger, but you never realize how far from simple the whole thing is until you  find yourself in similar circumstances. As Kevin Hart would say, “You gon’ learn today!”

Of course, Kourtney went on to add to her family with Disick by having daughter Penelope last year. The couple still has no plans for marriage that we can see (though there are rumors of an engagement),  and Kourtney seems to be more than happy with that. Ironically, the tables have turned and Kim Kardashian has found herself having a child with a man whom she’s not married to, but she says the reality that this baby is coming soon has prepared her. “I’ve always said that I wanted kids, but I don’t think I ever would have been ready until now.”

Speaking of marriage, Kim also opened up about the prospect of getting married to Kanye West sometime soon. She doesn’t know when it will happen, but she seems to think and feel that homeboy is the one.

“Sometimes you’re just not ready. A person could have it all, and you’re not ready for it all. But this is where I probably always should have been…[marriage] is something I know that we both want in our future, but I don’t have this sense of urgency about it. I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa, you know? It just feels like this is it for me…I saw fast marriages like Khloe and Lamar’s and that was what seemed to work. [Now] I say give it a good six months before you commit. Feelings change, even if it seems so lustful.”

And you know, still being married to someone else will help chill out that sense of urgency to walk down the aisle with your new boo and what not. Juuuuuust saying.

    Okayyy Kimmy a lie you tell! The only reason she probably “lightened up” on Kourtney is because of her own backwards situation of getting pregnant by a man other than her legal husband. I mean what else is she going to say? Lol, and I’ll never understand people who can commit to having a child with someone and believe that to be less binding than a marriage. Yeah, okay..

    • Kellz

      Finally a smart person! Why dont people see havin kids is more binding than marriage!!!!

  • TallGyal7

    I would like to recommend a media ban on anything regarding Kim or Kanye. I don’t care! While we are at it, throw in Lil Wayne as well. That is All.

  • me

    Why is she even on this page? She is not black and is relevant for laying on her back for black men … SMH.

  • Atin

    Everyone on here is so hypocritical. We all sin, so why judge her? Because our sins are private and hers are public? If you hate Kim so much, why read the article? At least Kim learned her lesson of judging others. You never know what life will throw at you. So be careful when you judge someone for the situation they’re in.

    • DeepThinker

      Because this heaux keeps opening up her legs and hollow brain to the world. That’s why.

      • Chey

        lmao. sounds about right to me…

  • Ann

    I be glad when these Kardashians go away. I am so tired of them. I don’t even watch their show or I don’t even support any of their business endeavors.

  • Sagittarius81

    Let he who without sin cast the first stone, KIM!

  • greentea516

    From what I’ve seen on the show Kourtney doesn’t want to get married bc her parents didn’t work out and it still affects her. Wendy Williams made a good point today that Kim shouldnt be thinking about marrying Kanye not because shes still married to Kris Humphries, but bc she’s not truly ready to leave that “Kardashian” lifestyle behind. Maybe the baby will help change that *shrugs*

  • Ms_Sunshine9898

    I still don’t understand how you can be prepared to have baby with someone and yet not be ready for marriage. . .

    • Britt

      Because as thirsty as Kim K is, she just got tired of the failed marriages and decided to go for the next thing on her bucket list.

  • DeepThinker

    I just wish Kim would go some where outside of the US, preferably outerspace. Why didn’t they ship her off along with Elian Gonzalez? First, Kanye threw out her wardrobe, then Kanye tells her not to sign autographs, and be more private. Then he announces her to the world as his baby mama – not the love of his life carrying his seed. It’s so obvious she is setting Kanye up for when things eventually fall apart – he will become this controlling, abusive man just like she did Kris. She will play the victim and cash in on her victimhood. Right now she is cashing in on her idiothood. By the time this is all over Kanye will have to pay her to keep quiet. Now this airhead is giving marital advice?!!! Oh and a whopping 6 months is long enough to know a person well enough to consider marrying? Weren’t she and Kris together 8 months before they said “I Do”? Now she’s supposed to be preparing for “motherhood, but still taking fluck pictures for magazine covers. She also knows Kanye does not respect her and ain’t whipped enough to marry her so she is playing real coy about marriage so he doesn’t embarrass her any further. What a meatball!

    • Kenedy

      If alien civilizations out there send her back down to earth then she should just be shot….that’s the only solution

      • Chey

        lmao well dayum

    • Nikki

      I wonder if her fellow Armenians would accept her…

  • Nikki

    I still judge Kim negatively for dating and getting pregnant by another man while still legally married. Technically speaking in a biblical sense, that’s adultery.

    I also judge Kourtney negatively for having children out of wedlock with a boyfriend whom she doesn’t trust and has mixed feelings about.

    • Trollolol

      I judge you for judging them.

      • Nikki

        Ehh, whatever. If I’m judging by your username, you’re just a troll.

    • jasmine

      I find it interesting that you use “I judge” and “biblical” in the same sentence. Doesn’t the Bible tell us NOT to judge. I’m not saying I agree with their choices for MYSELF, but none of us are perfect and NONE of us are in a position to judge ANYONE. It’s called being a hypocrite.

      • Nikki

        Yes, the Bible tells us not to judge others or else we will be judged. Adultery is a mortal sin, while judging someone is a venial sin. I was raised in a Catholic household, but I’ve made the decision to not be religious. I would rather be called a cheater than an adulteress. I was trying to sound more harsh.

        Everyone judges people. When you first meet someone, you’re judging them; however, people like to call that a first impression.

      • pickneychile

        It says not to judge people by a standard that you don’t keep yourself. So if someone was a baby mama judging a baby mama, that’s hypocritical. If someone’s not a baby mama and expresses their disagreement toward that life choice, that’s their opinion and there’s nothing wrong with that. People always get the judging concept screwed up, and it seems to almost always be people who don’t even read the Book or the context of the verses.

    Regardless of what our own particular family situation is, we-Western Culture with dominant Protestant/Judeo-Christian values-do give the side eye instinctively to people who choose to have children with someone who they are not married to. It has been ground into our heads from an early age that a family is a mommy, daddy, and baby. We all know the rhyme,”first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage.” Personally, I think that individuals need to do them and the rest of the world be darned. As long as they are not hurting other people of course.

    • Chey

      I can understand where you’re coming from…I just wonder why not though? Why is it such a nightmare to people to want to get married and then have children? I really think that it makes you look more respectable and will most likely offer a better outcome for your children. Why continue to give birth to more generations of people who have the “have my cake and eat it too” mentality?

      • Cold Hard

        She’s a hoodrat who can’t get a man to stay after he ejaculates.

  • sammi_lu

    Taking advice from a ‘married baby mama’ is like taking financial advice from the bum on the corner..

  • kierah

    People who star in publicized sex tapes shouldn’t throw stones (or however the saying is supposed to go)!

  • MLS2698

    Tell us. Kimmy, how do you feel about a woman who is married to one man, but is pregnant by another? I’m just wondering. It’s not like I actually have a SISTER, or friend who is in that situation.

    • Taj

      Also add the fact that she was married to her first husband for four years only to have her second marriage last less than 72 days. Now that’s messy.
