Kim Kardashian is now claiming the controversial pics of her frolicking on the beach in a bikini in Mexico for her sister Kourtney’s birthday were actually photoshopped to make her look bad.
On a recent episode of “The View”, the 36 year old “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star said the paparazzi altered, or “sharpened” her bathing suit photos to enhance her cellulite. In the interview, Kim does admit that her body was not in very good shape after two children and not working out for the past three months.
The reality star also recently underwent two surgeries on her uterus and that left her unable to exercise for weeks. Kim is currently desperate to have a third baby, but has been cautioned by doctors that another pregnancy would be dangerous. She underwent the surgeries on her uterus hoping that they would help her be able to carry a third child.
Kim called the photos of herself “awful”, but admitted that looking at them served as an inspiration and made her start exercising again. After looking at the unflattering photos, Kim said, “OK, I’m going to get it together.” She started a strict new diet plan and sticks to it. The reality star also hired a female bodybuilder to serve as her personal trainer.
Before the pictures hit the internet, Kim had been bragging about her recent weight loss. She had posted about how having the flu had helped her lose several pounds and was going to help her squeeze into her Met Gala gown. She of course came under fire for promoting unhealthy weight loss.
After the photos were published, Kim lost 100,000 Instagram followers overnight. She was then accused by entertainment bloggers of paying paparazzi to photoshop her photos before selling them to magazines. Her own fans were upset that she seemed to photoshop her photos before posting them on Instagram and were angry that she had been promoting an unhealthy and impossible body image to her young female fans.
With absolutely no talent, Kim’s butt has been one of her few sources of fame. It has made her millions of dollars and a picture of her bare bottom on a magazine cover was said to have “broken the internet” a few years ago. Of course her bottom is not natural, Kim is famous for getting butt injections to achieve her overly large behind.
It has also been rumored that she got butt implants before she became famous. After the pictures of her sagging butt were posted, rumors began to swirl that Kanye wanted Kim to put off having another baby to get surgery to fix her derriere. Kanye is very image conscious and tries very hard to make him and Kim appear to be the perfect looking couple.
While discussing the fall out from the unflattering pictures, Kim claimed that while she had a thick skin, she was upset about the online hate she got after the photos leaked.
