    When I think of self made I think of some of the make up people on MReporter that started with poor lighting and their iPhone camera many of which now they own their own companies.n

    I'm late but...Whoopi, Whoopi, Whoopie, Sunny got it right! Kylie has TWO wealthy parents and famous older siblings. Her cosmetics line is undeniably successful, but she is NOT self-made. Disagreeing with Forbes' headline does not make someone jealous Whoopi.🙄

    I agree with Sunny but that last point Whoopi made was actually very poignant and intelligent.

    I think to be self made you can’t be rich. She used her platform, her fame.

    Whoopi just said she isn’t self-made Bc she took opportunities given by others to get to where she is...sooo...shouldn’t she agree Kylie isn’t self-made either Bc she did “the same thing”?

    To people thinking that it's almost impossible to become a self-made billionaire without being born rich, I feel sorry for you bc maybe you dont know who Oprah, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and others who climbed their way up through hard work and perserverence...so laughs on you

    I agree with Sunny. Let's not kid ourselves, someone who was born into a family like Kylie's does have a leg up on everyone else. I'm not saying that she hasn't worked hard but the idea that a poor person in inner city Chicago or in rural Indiana has the same chances as her is laughable. She is not a self made for the most part.

    If Kylie grew up poor would she have the money to start a business at such a young age....probably not

    Not to mention that Kylie steals palettes and art from other people and nothing is original.

    People aren’t buying the makeup because it’s great, they’re buying a product that her mom, her dad and the show Gave her. All that money and she still can’t get good quality out. She would not have had the backing to get people to buy it in the first place, let alone the financial backing of her parents (and the show) to allow her to slap her name on stuff. Let’s allow reality to sink in before we start using alternative definitions to self-made.

    I totally agree with Sunny 100 % . Not hating, not jealous, she is successful just NOT self made. Jeff Bezos, he's a self-made billionare.

    If Forbes would have said “FIRST female BILLIONAIRE” all woman would be cheering and celebrating together. The issue is “self made” Kylie is THE SMALL one of the family she grew up in an era with social media and into the kardashians already being a big hit. Kim and Khris I admire bc there are kinda self made making a million dollar empire since the 2000s. But Kylie was BIG TIME PRIVILEGED so nope. Not self made but still happy for her. Same way white ppl are always college bound bc parents have that head start as to us we come all the way from the bottom.

    WOW...many people dont get it...while I agree she may not be completely self-made, she had to come out from behind a shadow of a family with a checkered lifestyle and did something...she never gave herself that moniker Forbes did. This is an instance in which both sides are correct...she may not be self-made but the advantages she made have had probably did not fall into her lap an provide an ease which most assume. Also, the stigma of having a famous name or family member(s) is more difficult.

    Kylie isn't self made tho self made is if u were born poor and made nothing into something she was born with a gold spoon in her mouth so she had it easy

  30. LaceeLasers

    LaceeLasersMonth ago

    Kylie was born into that family by pure chance. she started her makeup line because of the constant criticism and attention she got from her lip injections at age 15. 15!!!!! she saw the attention from her lips as an opportunity and she took it, yes, but she was ONLY able to receive that plastic surgery because her FAMILY was famous and rich and THEY paid for it. NOT her. without that family, she would’ve never have been on TV, she wouldn’t have the following she does now and she would never have had the lips injections. therefore, her makeup line would’ve never existed and she wouldn’t be the “self made” billionaire she is today.

    She is who She is because She became almost famous at the show! keeping up with kardy's If She doesn''t appears on that show She Will never be a billion girl... she's not a self made... She obviously is a product of the kardashians show ( poop: )

    There are a looooooot of children of rich, and there are more Karsashians and Jenners. And she was only one that made it. She took what she had and turned it into a huge company.

    She didn’t choose to be part of the keeping up with the kardashians? She didn’t cast or compete with other people for the part of herself, the family help build her wealth! Kris even charge 10% to her, what do you think that is? And she even started with a half million salary per episode!! Come on people, that is not self made, and copying and robbed from other companies is not why I called a amazing business, she will be over sooner that later, she doesn’t even give costumer service, she is stealing people money!!!

    of course she is not "self-made"! her family paid for the start up and the opportunities were because of them

  41. Alexander Stewart

    Alexander StewartMonth ago

    I wonder if her beauty has anything to do with her marketing and success? I wonder how she was able to afford the surgeries to make herself beautiful? I wonder how her business line was so easily accepted by other businesses? Did she market it herself? Did her family’s politics and fame have anything to do with it? It helps when your name is recognized by half the people in the room wherever you are. It also helps when you know you can fail drastically and still live in a 10 million dollar home and have support and have other options.

    UNAIDED? Who among the unarguably self-made were NEVER aided? Most of them HAD TEACHERS; many of them READ BOOKS (as you all know; books are a form of education and a form of assistance!); some of them got LOANS from family, friends and banks; so YES, EVERY STEP OF THE WAY THERE WAS SOMEONE HELPING THOSE PEOPLE. NO ONE’S AN ISLAND HERE. To say that Kylie’s not self-made is to ignore everything that she has accomplished on her own! How many people who come from wealthy families do you see that are as successful as her??? Many of them only contribute to the world by spending tons of money.

  44. Angela Orellana

    Angela OrellanaMonth ago

    whoopie is SO incredibly wrong. Kylie IS a successful however she is NOT self made. taking oppertunities is different than being born with the plata ($$$$$) to create your own oppertunities. Ex- you're in a play at school, a talent scout sees and recruits you to join their agency. That is an oppertunity that you yourself EARNED so you would still be self made. however of your mom is MERYL STREEP for example, maybe from a young age she'll have connections that you wouldn't have had if your mom wasnt who she was. not self made.

    I think Whoopi and the rich white girl don't understand is, yes Kylie has work ethic, but so do millions of middle and lower class people as well, but they're not all rich. Her following was already established, she already had access to funds, resources, and people, where as regular people have to grind just to get to the door.

    Self-made = without the help of others, to succeed in creating something all by yourself alone. Unless kylie is not from a famous family of jenners, so wouldn't have the least attention to let people recognize her and she wouldn't have an opportunity to collaborate with anyone without the influence her family have. It's a FACT!

    Sis needs to stop defending her. She literally was offered to be the face of a hair extension line at 16. Then, since she was 18 she basically just had her face on products that she knows nothing about. All that she does is put her face on products. It literally shows on keeping up with the Kardashians at 18 years old she didn’t even know how to do laundry. Do not try to defend her.

    Maybe I’m assuming things too much, but she was someone born into a celebrity family with connections handy. The simple fact is that she didn’t earn her connections over time with a good business acumen. I give credit to her for using her advantages, but she started off big. She wasn’t a small business owner who made it big starting a lemonade stand first or something.

    Everyone is saying because of her mom but...did we forget that Kylie’s father was Bruce Jenner a Gold medal winning Athlete. He is even in a museum for crying out loud. Sonny is %100 right I don’t know wtf Whoopi is saying but Kylie Jenner is not a self made billionaire. If it wasn’t for her 3 sister’s and that lie about not getting lip injections kylie would have never been ‘Kylie Jenner’ Thank you and goodbye.

Kylie didn't build her brand...when someone goes from the average walk of life to riches that's self made!

    yes she did work hard to build her business. but she was gifted with talented managers, mentors, marketers, and paired with reliable distributors and suppliers etc. She was GIVEN all the tools she needed for success. She used those tools to do great things but she did not get herself where she is because of her hard work and its kind of insulting to people who helped her get to where she is today AND people who have to work significantly harder that are not even given the same opportunity to obtain the same tools she has used to build her success. This heterosexual cisgendere female was was born into a white, upper class, well educated, and famous family. This does not mean she lived a life without struggle, but she started her life with the opportunity for prosperity that most people don't get. I think a better title would be Influential Young Billionaires or something like that.

    WG you know what i respect you and what you do for all, BUT you are FULL of BS with Kylie "self made" billionare and taking an opportunity, like rest of us, average person who are battling with colleage loans and credits, that we are never taking any opportunity, CUZ we don't get any opportunity from anyone, we need to do everything by ourselfs cuz we don't have rich family and powerfull friends to back us up with capital, connections and special treatment. People have much much much more respect for those who started with 0$ (or immigrants workers with zero dollars) and build an empire then those who inherent money, power and special treatment from theirs rich family or politician friends. And watch out WG if you want to continue with this kinda BS you will lose your fans. Just think before you talk.

    I agree that you are not what your parents are ... but WG is wrong about this. Period. I think she is projecting some eventual problems that her children might have with her being on TV and famous. Nobody is saying that you are what your parents are or were ... can you understand that ? What they are saying is that being a member of this rich family had a crucial role in what she became and the money she made. If you are not willing to admit this obvious truth, I reserve my right to think you are a hypocrite.
