Kim Kardashian may be famous for being famous, but the reality television star is opening up about exactly what she does.
Kardashian, the 33-year-old "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star, defended her line of work in a recent issue of Vogue U.K..
"The biggest misconception about my family and me is that we're lazy. I work hard; the show is a full-time job," Kardashian insisted to Vogue. "Sometimes I don't think people realize that – we work 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on the program."
Aside from the show, Kardashian insists that she and her family are hard at work on other business ventures.
"People think, 'Well, what do they do,'" Kardashian explained to Vogue. "We do so much, we work on the show, on fragrances, on our fashion line – there's a lot. Also, people have this idea that my mom (Kris Jenner) controls us all and will her book her kids to do anything if it makes money. I am in my thirties – my mom can't tell me what to do."
Kardashian's occupation has been a cause for debate recently when the father of her child and fiancee, rapper Kanye West, insisted that she deserved a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
While A-list actors appear on the stars that line the sidewalks on Hollywood Boulevard, California native Kardashian might have been shunned by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, who is in charge of those appearing on the famed sidewalk.
"I want to give a shout out to the stars at the Walk of Fame cause they said something about how they're not going to put my girl on the walk of Fame cause she's a reality star. It's like people are so dated and not modern," West told late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel recently. "There is no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't have a star on the Walk of Fame. It's [a] ridiculous concept."
Kardashian previously spoke up about wanting to appear on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in an interview with V Magazine last year.
"I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," Kardashian told V. "So, of course I'm so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold."
