Kim Kardashian haters, stand down! The backlash to the backlash has begun, and it’s nice to see some other celebs rush to Kim’s defense. Well, maybe not rush; she did announce her divorce over two weeks ago. Olivia Wilde, herself newly divorced, repped Kim super-hard to the New York Post this week, explaining, “People judge you because divorce is seen as failure. [Kim] took a risk. No one should be attacking her. Our attention should be focused on things that are truly scandalous.” See, in Hollywood, Kim Kardashian’s 72 day marriage isn’t scandalous at all. Olivia is just trying to show us what Kim looks like…through famous eyes!
Meanwhile Tyler Perry responded to a proposes boycott of his upcoming film The Marriage Counselor over Kim’s minor role. “She literally has millions of young people following her. I thought and still do think, that it would be very responsible of her to be a part of this film. To have the young people that look up to her, see her in a film that is about, what happens in life when you make the wrong choices,” the director wrote in a statement. Is anyone else now picturing Kim, Olivia and Tyler breaking into some kind of fabulous First Wives Club musical number? If so, why not? Discuss your reasons below.
