From reality star to prison reformer to climate activist? Kim Kardashian, 38, is adding another line to her crowded resume, just as she comes off another prison reform victory. On Monday, the lawyer-in-training and mom of four revealed that Momolu Stewart, 39, was walking free after 23 years behind bars for murder thanks to her ongoing efforts.
Kardashian has been making headlines for months for her high-profile meetings with President Trump and successful bid to reform prisons. Thus far, she has helped campaign to free 17 federal inmates who were serving life sentences for low-level drug crimes.
Now, it seems Kardashian is setting her eyes on environmental activism. On Tuesday, she hailed the 16-year-old Swedish climate crusader Greta Thunberg, telling reports at the World Congress on Information Technology in Armenia that she’d love to have her over for dinner.
Kardashian said, “She is such an amazing young girl, and so brave and courageous to stand up to these grown-ups that can be very scary and for her to be so open and honest is exactly what we need. Climate change is a serious problem.”
Kardashian, who has more than 150 million followers on Instagram, said she’d be willing to share tips with Thunberg’s parents.
“Speaking on a big platform invites a lot of different opinions and personalities and how they (parents) manage that,” Kardashian said.
Meanwhile, Kardashian is also opening up for E! True Hollywood Story’s “Who Is Kim Kardashian West?” set to air Sunday. Available already on YouTube, Kardashian and her family and friends get candid about her rise to fame. She discusses how her father Robert Kardashian Sr.’s work on O.J. Simpson’s murder trial divided her family: "One day my dad took me and Kourtney into the trial, and then my mom happened to be sitting with Nicole's family, and we looked over and my mom was looking at us, like, 'What are you girls doing here? Why are you sitting on that side?'"
She also opens up about how her Paris robbery changed her. "There's those moments in like that really change you, and shake you to your core. My robbery was definitely that moments for me," she reflects. "As crazy as this sounds, I wouldn't give up that experience for the lessons I learned from it... Material things used to be so important to me. I measured my success by my material things. But there is nothing material that is important to me."
