    Kim Kardashian is part Armenian. They are hairy people.
    I am of Portuguese descent & lots of Portuguese are also hairy. So I understand why Kim K. might get freaked out that her little six-month old daughter had a unibrow.


    Because the middle Kardashian sister has spent a fortune on laser hair removal all over her body, it makes sense that she would be weirding out that Nori was a hairy baby.


    I never had to worry about hairy eye brows with my kids but I do now encourage my son to get his brows waxed since his are hirstute. If Kim felt the need to fix Nori's excessive brows, then she should do it and not let people call her a bad mom for it. If that means merely photo-shopping an Instagram pic of Nori or taking the little girl to a professional for a brow sculpting, then okay. Farrah Araham copped to waxing his young daughter's brows recently and caught a lot of flak for it. Now I suppose it's Kim's turn.


    I am not defending Kim Kardashian because I approve of her or how she lives her celebrity lifestyle because I don't. But the brow-gate situation has been  totally blown all out of proportion.


    It is a fact that women who hail from the Middle East, certain Latin countries and Italy fight the battle of excessive hair. Because of this, they are overly sensitive to appearances. I can understand where Kim K. is coming from here. Little Nori is adorable but a happy mom makes for a happy baby. Whether a photo-shop or a brow sculpting made for that picture Kim posted on Instagram, my SOUND-OFF is that haters and critics should try and get into Kim's head to understand why she would feel the need to clean up the baby's hairy situation. In Kim's mind, it seems to me that a hairless appearance is preferable and equates to attractive.


    I am sure that Brow-Gate will soon blow over and the silliness over whether Nori was waxed or photo-shopped fade into the tabloid sunset; However, one thing remains: a hairy baby usually means a hairy adult--and Nori may be in for a lifetime of fighting the bane of excessive hair. A fight that many women share.
