Last week in an interview Jon Hamm referred to Kim as an idiot, saying that her success -- as well as Paris Hilton's -- "doesn't make any sense." She responded Monday: "I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We're all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own business, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, 'stupid', is in my opinion careless."
