Kim Kardashian Is Legally Blonde & We Have No Objections
Kim Kardashian wants us all to know that she’s not here to play games.
The reality TV star is studying to become a full-fledged lawyer and has embodied the spirit of Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.
In Legally Blonde, Elle wasn’t exactly taken seriously when she took up law at the prestigious Ivy League university. In fact, nobody thought she was smart enough, except herself. Elle Woods, portrayed by Reese Witherspoon managed to prove everyone wrong and became a badass lawyer.

And that’s the message Kim’s sending us. Of course, she received such positive responses on Twitter.
This is so perfect because Kim is actually a very pretty girl that no one takes seriously like Elle but ends up being a lawyer and proving everyone you can be gorgeous AND smart!

While Kim’s decision to make a career out of law wasn’t something that sat well with everyone, she’s going out there to prove everyone wrong. She registered with the California State Bar to study law, just last year.

Last year I registered with the California State Bar to study law. For the next 4 years, a minimum of 18 hours a week is required, I will take written and multiple choice tests monthly. As my first year is almost coming to an end I am preparing for the baby bar, a mini version of the bar, which is required when studying law this way. I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.” I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn’t care who you are. This option is available to anyone who’s state allows it. It’s true I did not finish college. You need 60 college credits (I had 75) to take part in “reading the law”, which is an in office law school being apprenticed by lawyers. For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it’s not. My weekends are spent away from my kids while I read and study. I work all day, put my kids to bed and spend my nights studying. There are times I feel overwhelmed and when I feel like I can’t do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me. I changed my number last year and disconnected from everyone because I have made this strict commitment to follow a dream of mine – It’s never too late to follow your dreams. I want to thank Van Jones for believing in me and introducing me to Jessica Jackson. Jessica along with Erin Haney have taken on the role of my mentors and I am forever grateful to them both putting in so much time with me, believing in me and supporting me through this journey. This week I have a big torts essay due on negligence. Wish me luck ✨⚖️
To her haters, Kim clarified:
“I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. The state bar doesn’t care who you are. You need 60 college credits (I had 75) to take part in “reading the law”, which is an in-office law school being apprenticed by lawyers.”
You may think she’s privileged, but at least she’s doing it for a good cause. Kim K told Vogue:
“I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”
And she’s right! Kim makes the perfect Elle Woods. It’s not just a Halloween costume, it’s a representation of her reality right now. You go, Kim!
