No, but I've got a good, I want to talk about something that got me really excited. Did you read about Kim Kardashian? Yeah, yeah, I saw that. Kim Kardashian wants to be a lawyer. Okay. Hold up. I don't think that's the response -- I don't think that's the response we expected. That is not where I was going with that. I was really impressed with this. So the headline gets your attention and your first reaction is laughter, I get it. When I read it. I read an article in "Vogue" every time I read something a little in-depth about her, I end up liking her more. She started talking about how she was so interested when she got, I think it was Alice Johnson who was incarcerated, the same amount of time, by the way, as Charles Manson, for a nonviolent drug offense. She decided to use her platform for good to try to get this woman out of prison. She went to the white house to try to get laws changed, which was something she never thought she could do. I'm in over my head. I'm in these rooms with lawyers and judges. They're just talking around her. And I have the ability to do something important. I can't help if I don't know more. What she did is, she said, I'm going to figure out a way to do this. She never went to undergrad. There are four states where you can be mentored or the -- or apprenticed and pass tests to get into law school. She's training with lawyers. She says, I want to make a difference in the world. I want to do good. In the article, they describe how her dining room table is stacked with legal books. Which my husband is a lawyer. Those books are boring as -- and she's in there cramming with these lawyers. And I thought, you know what? This is a moment that kempb get on board and say bravo. She's trying to do something good. I was so excited. And -- I have known her a long time. She really is, she's very smart. You know, very, very smart girl. And I do like the fact that what she's doing is trying to help people. And to be in a room and don't feel comfortable and knowing the only way to be comfortable is by educating yourself? You cannot fault anybody on that. But her dad was a lawyer, right? Yes, yes, it runs in the family. Because her dad represented -- her dad was one of o.j.'s lawyers. She said on the weekends, they used our home as an office with Johnnie Cochran and Bob Shapiro. My dad had a library, and when you pushed on this wall, there was this whole hidden closet room with all of his O.J. Evidence books. On weekends, I would always snoop through and look at it. I was always really nosy about the forensics. I'm not more enamored. Seeing the books and stuff. But you push on the wall. Where is she living, hogwarts? Things that didn't surprise me in the story. Was that she pushes on walls and there are secret rooms. I kind of expected that. Good for Kim Kardashian. Good for Kim. You go, Kim. Good for you. Good for you.
