So only last week we she was in the news reportedly banning big sister Kim Kardashian from her shows, now Kendall is back this week after allegedly being bullied by other models at New York Fashion Week. The story broke on Thursday that some “bitchy” models took issue with her because they felt that she hadn’t yet paid her dues to be walking the runway with those who worked their butts off far longer than she has.
It is alleged that other models who had “worked so hard to get a spot on the runway” cried foul and thought she was getting preferential treatment owing to her Kardashian ties. Sources reported to HuffPost correspondents that some models even went as far as to put out their cigarettes in her drink.
Well, tough break kid, but you did say you want people to take you seriously and see past the Kardashian name. So when you think of it, the fact that this is even a story kinda proves their point because had it been an ordinary model without ties to the rich and famous, this wouldn’t even be a story.
The modeling industry, in fact, the entertainment industry on a whole is a dog eat dog world. It’s ruthless and unforgiving and you have to have a strong backbone to survive it. If you can’t roll with the punches you can get chewed up pretty quickly. Then again with your links that might not happen.
The point is, running to the press because they didn’t exactly roll out the welcome wagon can’t be great for the image you say you want to create for yourself. Ordinary folk get heat for things like that daily so you can’t let these things leak out if you want to be embraced as a bonafide model. But the moment it even appears that you are seeking sympathy from the clan so they can pull strings to get you the princess treatment you are substantiating their claims.
I really am not star struck and I definitely don’t give a hoot about who you are related to. The truth is I admire that you want to strike out on your own and come from under the shadow of the “Kardashian umbrella”. Kudos to you for that, but you’ve gotta let this kinda stuff roll off your back if you’re gonna do that. Here’s to hoping we don’t hear anymore sob stories about the girls that are “playing mean”. Keep your chin up.
