lol i don't hope they get a divorce, but can i just mention, there seems to be a common trend with these "my japanese husband~" foreign youtubers, and speaking over and constantly interrupting their partners? because i watched kelly's vids i've been getting a bunch of similar videos recommended, with typically white women and japanese or korean men, and i swear almost all (if not all) never let their husbands get a word out, ignore the things they say, or act belittling/degrading towards them.

idk i'm not trying to generalize all the youtubers that fit the description of white woman and japanese/korean husband, but i feel like i've just seen too much of it now for it to be a coincidence. i guess there must be a connection between denigrating your partner and exploiting your interracial relationship for views lmao

 

Nah I personally think it's yellow fever, but just a relatively unexplored side of it.

I think K-Pop has made it pretty clear that fetishizing Asians isn't something that is exclusive to white men, and that white women are active participants in fetishizing Asians, specifically Asian men. Btw this is a general comment about this trend of Asian man w/ white woman, not so much specifically about Kelly. My reading of Kelly is that she just likes people catering to her and Ryuji just so happens to be happy to cater to her and let her personality dominate.

I just keep going back to that phrase where Kelly talks about how Ryuji treats her like a queen, and I'm just sitting here thinking shouldn't your husband treat you like a partner instead of putting you on a pedestal.

Yep it's annoying. One of the reasons why I stopped following Kelly. In some cases, it might have to do with them being more reserved and quiet (like Jun), but it still rubs me the wrong way sometimes because they just look like they don't want to be there. I liked Texan in Tokyo because even though Grace was clearly the "show runner", at the same time Ryosuke had his own space to shine and you could see they really respected and loved each other. But overall I really appreciate youtubers like Osharegirl because they really respect their SO's wish for privacy and don't cash on the "interracial relationship" factor by using their SO's as props. It just feels more genuine to me and a lot less like yellow fever. But this is already off-topic, so I apologize.

I don't get it. In her last video she was talking about starting a company and now she's saying she wants to be a housewife and have kids?? I feel like she's really confused, and making huge decisions like this right after marrying someone she - let's face it - barely knows is unwise.

She needs to watch Paulo in Tokyo's latest video.

Being a housewife in Japan is harder than what she knows.

She wants do work at home and be a housewife and stay at home mum. Also the whole video is packed with pregnancy hints. This is all happening so fast...

And she talks how she wants to help people in her situation to do what she does. What does she mean anyway? Having a Japanese husband and moderately popular youtube channel? I have no idea. I used to enjoy her channel, but now it's getting more weird with every new episode. How she is supposed to take care of a baby, when she can't understand a Japanese doctor and she have to look for an English speaking one? Her husband will probably work 14 hours a day so who will contact the school or attend school meetings?

Ohh if she's having a baby and wants to stay on youtube, nows her chance to start a new video journey. I think people would be genuinely interested about this since there's not many videos about the whole process of motherhood in Japan on youtube. A girl at my uni in Nagoya way back; came to back to Japan, married, and had 2 baby girls and shared the whole experience. Her channel was pretty successful but she put in a lot effort and care about sharing helpful information and the journey (with her low level japanese). I'd share her channel, but she deleted/hide her videos so no point haha

yeah, but that family was loaded. I hate to be that person but Kelly is definitely not living that life style at the moment. Not that being super rich changed how had that lady worked because it for sure didn’t but I wouldn’t put it past Kelly to see that video and ask her man why they don’t live like that too 🤦🏼‍♀️

Her newest video annoyed me so much. “Being a mom is the toughest job on the planet, and the most rewarding.” Oh fuck off kelly. Just say that it’s difficult and rewarding, not that it’s harder and more special than anything else. Ridiculous. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be a SAHM but get off your high horse, her comment is so insulting to people with fulfilling and difficult careers.

Ah, I should clarify. I meant more of how much she will have to do in a day, starting at 5:30am.

In that case, she should watch the Hayashi life. She will barely have any help.

did she really change her youtube name to "kelly morita" lmao yikes. This woman is the epitome of rash decisions; she was lovelyzkelly for how long regardless of how immature and middle-school it sounded, but the second she gets a Japanese last name she decides it's time to change it? Give me a break.

ngl I can't stand these women who try to make themselves look like self-made hardworking Boss Babes but are willing to give up everything regarding their own identity, work, etc. the second they have some man to support them. Like, if that's your prerogative and how you want to live your life, then fine. But stop trying to act like you're this great hardworking industrious person when you literally just quit your job and are using your husband's name and race for clicks. Fuck off with that shit.

I feel sincerely bad for any child she's going to have. Enjoy your mom treating you like a prop.

she changed her YouTube name before they were married like a few weeks ago, and she changed her website to 'kellymorita/.com' after they first met. when I made the "all about Kelly" first page thing back in May 2019 it was already kellymorita. kinda pathetic lol

Once again, I am sooo glad that I am not the only one who cringes at the messages Kelly is putting out there in her videos. One of the reasons why I continue to watch her is to make sure that her misinformation is corrected by people who know a lot more than what she is talking about. As an influencer, I feel that she needs to be way more responsible with some of her content. She's really trying to portray herself as this amazing woman who has conquered hardships and has now found the love of her life to live out all her dreams with here in Japan. And her community is believing that and telling her how brave and lucky she is! 

BUT...anyone who watches her current instagram stories or looks back at some of her old videos can see the desperation and immaturity in her decision-making and how she is living her life. I have seen countless posts from her of food and beverages she really shouldn't be having if she actually has SIBO. She eats a lot of processed food and grocery store prepared food and if you notice the way she cooks, it's usually by just combining things that she thinks are healthy for her. They eat out a lot and sometimes what she eats is contradictory from what fellow SIBO people are advising her to eat/stay away from in the comment section. She'll splurge on things she knows she shouldn't eat, but will always give the excuse that it's just a little bit or she's celebrating so what the hell. Despite all the doctor visits she supposedly goes on, not once has she ever mentioned consulting a nutritionist or taking steps to plan out a stricter menu with a professional. In her IG story a few days ago, she was complaining of her health issues (again.) Even if she wants to hurry and get pregnant, it would probably not be advised by her doctors(and I think she knows that) with all the health issues she is having. If she does try to get pregnant, that's really irresponsible when she can barely take care of her own health at the moment. I rewatched her YT video titled "I Don't Know What's Wrong With Me..." where she blamed the Japanese doctors for prescribing too many antibiotics, blamed her students for getting her sick because she never got sick in the US and then admits to traveling to Los Angeles to meet Ryuji for the first time even though she was sick with pneumonia, etc. I'm so furious with her gynecology video where she gives a lot of misinformation (including not being sure where an IUD goes....) and back when that video came out, I wrote a comment which she must have deleted. She also talks about having ovarian cysts as well. I don't know...as a foreigner whose lived here in Japan for quite some time, so much of what she talks about is incorrect. I would bet on it though that if the time comes, she'll start a Mommy Channel to milk as much attention as she can from it.

By the way, she also keeps ranting about being under so much stress from working 3 jobs. This has been right after posting the video about quitting her teaching job. If you have to work three jobs while your husband works one (and not the one he wants to be since I don't think his photography business is going all that well) are you really financially ready to take care of a baby? Another thing that bothers me as well is how she jumped to take Ryuji's family name and how she constantly has to put Japanese as the adjective to talk about her husband. And in closing, I don't like when influencers write a blurb like this on their site: "Help me pay for trips around Japan and new camera equipment for better content!" *rolls eyeball*

Ugh... yes, I have also noticed the contradictions in her health claims and her actual diet/behavior. I pointed out previously how she was going on and on about having nut allergies while pouring huge cups of almond milk all over her oatmeal. She talks about suffering from SIBO and then eats all the foods that are known to aggravate the condition. Then there are the many different clinics, specialists, and homeopaths she visits. I'm sorry to say, but I've seen this behavior before in a coworker I knew who had Munchausen Syndrome. It didn't have a good outcome for her. I'm not saying that Kelly has this mental illness, but the pattern is certainly there to some degree.

I’ve been a lurker for a while but felt the need to make an account after hearing about Kelly’s latest video.
 

I sincerely hope she doesn’t want to have a child simply to whore her kid out for views online. There’s a reason why not many foreign mothers in Japan (including me) don’t share their children’s lives on YouTube or other forms of social media. It’s a violation of their privacy, especially at an age where they can’t give consent, and can have detrimental outcomes in the future.
