Is Kim Worried About Kylie And Kendall?

Picture Perfect/REX USA
Kim Kardashian is a mega-star these days. But, even though her famous dad made headlines in the '90s, the family enjoyed relative anonymity through most of Kim's childhood. Not so for Kylie and Kendall, who started appearing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians as children. Kim insists that her younger sisters recognize that they aren't exactly leading normal lives. "They know that all their friends aren't going on private jets," she told Access Hollywood recently. "They know that they are growing up with a life of privilege."  "But," the Selfish author added, "they are super grounded and responsible."  It doesn't always exactly look that way — especially when it comes to Kylie, who has had a rocky couple months with media attention about everything from her alleged boyfriend to her lips and rumored drug habit. Kim set the record straight during this sit-down, though, and addressed the questions that come up most often about her littlest sis.  People often wonder how Kylie — who is 17 — holds down high school along with her rigorous social media posting schedule. "She goes to school. She's home-schooled. She has a year left. She goes to school every single day," Kim said."So perception can be reality and people assume maybe she's not in school because she's not posting about being in school all the time."

Kim also addressed Kylie's decision to use lip fillers, once and for all, saying than thin lips were something that the youngest member of the Kardashian clan struggled with for years. "I mean, at 10 years old, she would say to me, 'How come my lips aren't big like you guys?'," Kim shared. "And I would see this insecurity… For me, I gave her advice and I still stand by that advice. I think it changed her confidence so much." "She did something that made her feel better about herself and that's kind of where you have to draw the line, and she knows that. She doesn't have a desire to do anything else. "I'm totally okay with that because I know that's where it stops for her," she added. It's clear that Kim is protective of her family, and these two in particular. We can help but wonder how she'll handle North West growing up in the public eye, though, and whether or not she would give the same advice to her daughter as she did her sisters about decisions like using lip filler to combat insecurity. Something tells us: probably not.
