Can't anyone take a joke around here? A lot of people took Kim Kardashian’s recent remarks on pregnancy to be serious. Which, she says, they weren't.
"I guess you can’t be sarcastic when doing interviews!" the mother of 1-year-old North West wrote in a series of tweets Saturday. "I was asked about tips on pregnancy style… I jokingly said pregnant woman should hide/stay in if they looked like I did lol.”
Uh-uh honey, there was no "lol" when the Elle story was published last week. No "lol" when some folks interpreted her comments as demeaning to pregnant women.
"Kardashian's advice perhaps stems from her own negative experience with frequent excursions during her pregnancy," wrote Us Weekly, one of a number of outlets to pick up on the story Friday.
Observations like that may have been why the 33-year-old — who had no problem going out in public while she was expecting — felt the need to clarify on Twitter that she was just kidding when she said pregnant women should hide at home for a year and "wear a huge blanket."
Clearly serious advice, right?
"I really should start video taping the interviews I do & post on my website so u can see the laughs & how it's really said," Kardashian tweeted.
Mrs. Kanye West did the Elle interview in question with sisters Khloe and Kourtney, the last of whom is expecting her third child with longtime beau Scott Disick. All three were photographed last Monday at the event where the interview took place.
So much for a pregnant Kardashian hiding away at home.
Mrs. Kanye West and her sisters seemed to have fun during the chat, with Kim and Khloe agreeing that Kourtney has the best pregnancy style.
Kourtney said that for her, pregnancy style is all about comfort.
"[Y]ou’re always in long, flowy dresses when you’re pregnant," Khloe chimed in.
"I’m not really into maternity clothes," Kourtney explained. Pointing to her outfit, she said, "This is the Kardashian Kollection, and it’s just a size bigger than I would normally get."
