Kim Kardashian West Wants North or Saint to Be a Forensic Investigator: ‘I’ve Always Been Into the Most Morbid Things’

Kim Kardashian West already has career hopes for her children.

“I’m gonna be that annoying, pushy mom and say I want to live vicariously through my daughter or son and have them be a forensic investigator,” Kardashian West, 35, says in an interview with SheKnows.

The wife of Kanye West admits she’s obsessed with crime shows — and one real-life incident she had close proximity to as a teenager.

“I’ve always been into the most morbid things,” she explains. “I was really nosy when my dad was working on the O.J. trial, and I would look through all his stuff, and I just wish I was in that field. It’s the only type of TV I really like to watch.”

“I love Making a Murderer,” adds Kardashian West, who is mom to Saint, 9 months, and North, 3. “I love any murder show.”

When asked which of her husband’s songs are her favorite, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has a touching answer, inspired by their little girl.

“One of my favorite Kanye songs is called ‘Only One.’ He wrote it about his mom singing to him,” she says. “He references our daughter in it, so I think it’s really sweet. And our daughter is in the video.”

The reality star isn’t afraid to get real when taking a selfie near the end of her interview, requesting a “pretty filter” and then sharing one detail that she didn’t know about until after giving birth to her kids.

“I didn’t know that you have to wear a f—ing diaper after you have a baby. Like, the mom does,” she says. “For, like, a good few weeks. It’s disgusting.

“But it’s all worth it. Childbirth is so worth it,” she adds in a sweet tone. “Except for the diaper.”

Attempting to live through your children is one thing that will push them away the most. Stupid cow!

Allie on

With parents like Kim and Kanye she’s lucky if either of them ever go to college.

Ummm on

I find it a little odd that a child was allowed to go through pertinent information to a massive legal trial.

georgina notis on

this is so supid

Mare on

I thought Kim wanted to be a private investigator.
These two can’t even make a decision on a pre-school for North. How are they going to figure out what college she’ll attend?

She’ll be lucky if they don’t turn out to be vain, vacuous, narcissistic twits. Better have really good nannies to lead a good example for them, that’s the only way they’ll be forensic anything.

maybe they can find out PMK and the Kimmodes involvement in OJ murdering Nicole-that would be some karma-eh? Kimmodes kids now adults who have changed their names and disowned their slore mother find out that PMK screwing OJ was why Nicole left him and then when he lost it and murdered her he hid in Kimmodes bedroom-WTF??

Kim, you have all the money and resources that millions of women across the country wish they had so they could go back to school. Maybe if you went back to school you could change your image, people could think of you for more than an airhead with a sex tape married to a rapper. It isn’t too late to go back to school, don’t push your dreams on your children, help them to realize their own dreams

Here’s a thought. Scrape the crap off of your face, put some clothes on, use your cell phone for phone calls instead of pictures of your big fat ass and go to school yourself so you can do something useful and be a decent example to your kids for a change.

And BTW I had 2 ten pound babies naturally and never wore a diaper after either one. Of course my lady parts weren’t as well traveled as hers. Maybe that had something to do with it.

Kelly on

Isn’t this woman almost 40? Isn’t it time to drop “like” now? My gosh, so annoying. Grow up already.

UDontNoMe on

She sleeps with Kanye. She turned herself into Frankenstein’s female monster and loves sharing her manufactured face and body with everyone. I agree, she’s obviously “into the most morbid things!

Anonymous on

Her morbid fascination explains her family.

Carrow on

Well they’ll certainly be rich enough to do whatever their heart desires….

LOL Kim looks more like Beyonce than Kim Kardashian.

It’s official. Kim has finally morphed into a black woman. She’s freaking gorgeous.

Rachel on

Some people are indeed into those morbid things (otherwise obviously no one would ever become forensic investigators), but I simply cannot imagine looking at my innocent toddler or infant and thinking to myself, “Oh I sure hope you grow up to stare at dead bodies all day long… that’s my life’s ambition for you!”… Good grief :X

Bex on

Oh please. If they’re raised anything like their parents, they’ll be lucky to have a high school diploma. It’s too bad.
