Rob Kardashian is his own man. In a recent candid interview with the Wall Street Journal, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe‘s little brother, 26, admits he’s not that interested in Keeping Up With the Kardashians. He says he’d rather focus on his new luxury sock line, Arthur George, than appear on the reality show that put his family on the map.
“A lot of people say your family doesn’t do anything,” WSJ‘s Lee Hawkins tells Kardashian. “I’m going to give you an opportunity to explain: What do you do? And what is your job?”
“Literally, my job is I make socks. That’s all I do,” Kardashian says. “I don’t necessarily care about the show. I would rather film this — me doing what I do — than being around my family.”
That being said, Kardashian loves being close with his famous brood.
“But thank God, I have that opportunity to be with my family and work with my family,” he added. “Not everybody even gets to live with their own family because they have to go to L.A. or New York or wherever to work and find a job and leave their family back home. But everyday I get to work with my family — if I want to. And I’m all about family, that’s how I was raised. We’ve all got each other’s backs. And thank God, I have the opportunity to do what I love, which is my family and work on a business and try and make it the best that it can be.”
Hawkins noted that Kim, Kourtney and Khloe also work in the fashion industry as well as appear on the reality show, but Kardashian said he’s forging his own path.
“I don’t know what their goals are at the end of the day. Obviously, they love fashion and they’ve always been involved in that world,” Kardashian explained. “I love fashion too. I’ve been surrounded by women my whole life, so obviously I love fashion . . . But I’d like to do my own thing and focus on what I love. If people accept it, they accept it. If they don’t, they don’t.”
Kardashian, who graduated from USC’s business school Marshall in 2009, said he works on his sock line every day. “The design process never stops,” Kardashian said. “That’s the best part.”
