When Kim Kardashian shared a self-portrait of herself in a revealing bathing suit earlier this month, she was actually flipping the bird.
Didn't catch her middle finger in the snapshot? That's because the picture itself was intended to be a big "F. U." to those who criticized her weight gain while she was pregnant, the 33-year-old reality star told Jay Leno on Wednesday.
The negative press and mean-spirited commentary while she was pregnant with daughter North "really did affect me," Kardashian said. "It really hurt my soul, it changed how I am in the public, I think, a little bit. ... I was gaining weight because I was pregnant, and it was just really hard to read all these stories and hear all these nasty things."
Kardashian, who's in the middle of filming season 9 of her reality show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," added that she came out of that experience wanting to live a more private life.
"I wanted to adjust my life a little bit, because why would I subject myself to so much negativity?" she said. "I just don't need that energy. I choose to go out with family and friends when I want to but I've definitely tried to live a more private life because of that, because they were so nasty, it's like, why even go out as much just to put yourself in that position."
But when she took the sizzling swimsuit photo while trying on clothes in mid-October, she couldn't resist sharing it with the public.
"I was trying on that bathing suit, and I actually just sent that to my fiancé (Kanye West), and I was like, 'babe, can I post this up?' This is my big, middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat," Kardashian said with a laugh.
Her post-baby curves were hard-won, though. Losing 50 pounds after North's June arrival was "the hardest challenge of my life," she said. "And I was dedicated, and I was motivated, and I did the Atkin's diet ... it's a newer version now. I remember in college, I would try every single diet with my dad, and we did the Atkin's diet together and I lost weight and so did he. At the beginning (after giving birth) I couldn't exercise a whole lot. But then I started going on hikes with different family members, my boyfriend, everyone, and it worked."
Kanye better put his brand on the left flank of that heifer or else she's gonna get rustled.
I don't get it. She looks fat to me. In the "selfie" and on TV. How is that a middle finger to the world? Providing inarguable proof that yes- she has a big fat a**?
i get so tired of that old racist comment that all successful black guys end up with blonde women.
and yet here is kim k, now kanye's *urp* babymomma and .... blonde.
what the heck is up with that?
wow, i am still stopped by that derriere. man, that thing could stop traffic, and not in a good way. i mean, it's good to be proud of yourself, but dang is she unaware of just how incredibly large and unattractive is that body part, even to kanye? she *is* aware that he snapped her up for her money, right? well, and them being soul-makes with 93-point i.q.s.
kim, you wonder why people take pot shots at you, and you totally don't even get that posting things like *this* is why!!!! i mean, okay, you lost 50 lbs? great. i am very thankful that you didn't pose THOSE "before" photos. maybe losing those 50 lbs was your goal and you're done, but if you lost another 50 lbs, you would be healthier!!! and still not skinny!!!
Kim has lost 50 pounds since birth. Everything appears too be perfect with Kanye and all the best for a bright future as a healthy couple Kanye appears too care for her let's hope the relationship remains in tact.
It was a figurative steaming pile of sh!t, not a middle finger. A finger doesn't have that shape. A steaming pile of sh!t does.
Kim is an energy sucker which does not work anymore with the public...actually it never did.
Hey Kim try this, how about losing all your weight, and simply vanish into thin air? Now THAT would be a neat trick, and you would make headlines all over the world.
Wow. That woman has a big rear. No, I retract that. She has a huge rear. Can't imagine why she would want to show it off. I really do not understand the trend. Women seem to want huge rears, outrageously large breasts, and gigantic lips. All are ugly. And when they are imitation, plastic surgery generated they are that much worse.
How is this a middle finger when she is still fat?
With an ego bigger than his talent. He will be a nobody within 10 years. Kim will weigh 300lbs by then.
Saggy baggy elephant
God forbid this cellulite siren should ever walk around sans clothing - imagine the cacophonous clatter those flabby flubbers would create by flapping together unhindered.
OK, we get it - your a s s is still the size of the Grand Canyon (no disrespect to the Grand Canyon). Trust me, nobody wants to see that lard.
The woman has not lost a pound since I saw her last picture about 3 years ago. the real kim as lost 50 pounds her sis have not seen a change since that last time
Now shut up, cross-script hacker troll. Enough with the nonsense.
What gets me, she had to ask her bf if she could post that pic. Ummm, she felt like she had to ask? Again, do ya think he's a control freak?
Absolutely gross. What a POS she is! There's enough there for THREE of her!
I spent my whole adult life trying to get rid of my full size butt...hard for me to wrap my mind around someone who wants a bigger one...much less to inject oneself with whatever to make it so.
Gives women like her an excuse to sit around all day eating crapp and watching TV.
Two hams are all I see here.
What a good mom. Only famous for letting RayJ hit it.
Yes, that's certainly the way to go about living a more private life. LOL
Lol...maybe she should buy herself a dictionary to look up the word private.
Only season 9? It seems soooo much longer.
She meant, she wanted to show her privates not remain private.
Cute girl, but why is she displaying those 2 country hams like that?
Lmao @ comments.
A real American pastime.
You said it
My moderately offensive hand gesture is a literal middle finger to Kimye.
Keep that finger nice and erect
You people are SICK, vile and DISGUSTING. Why does CNN allow such filth?
This coming from someone who calls themself Loose Watery Stools!
Gravity is not being kind to her. :(
Even her middle finger looks fat! Fat fat fatty fat azz fatso.
I swear the media is more interested in her than anybody else. I'm amazed how many people can't stand her and yet the media hogs are all over her. I can't wait until this family becomes a thing of the past, like Jon and Kate...good riddance!
"This is my big, middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat,"
She is so incredibly stupid that she does not realize that in the picture she actually IS fat.
Dumb, fat, persian, gypsy trash.
Her nasty fun bags are nearly down to her elbows, and her rear end could house a mexican family.
She is a used up dirty ghetto queen.
Oh man...where do I even begin?
"I like butts....big butts. The kind you can hold on to and beat with a car antenna.
She only shows the bootie shot because if she turned around you would be shocked at the GUT.
Amen! My thoughts exactly. She chose her pose carefully. Kim features the humongous asset she's best known for, and demurely hides her front view. Her legs are not really visible, just a peek. What we do see of her leg is in shadow, you can see the bumpy texture from cellulite, and her leg even creases from it on the side. So, she sees this picture as a middle finger to the world. But It's really more like an "L" on her forehead, after looking at it carefully. She is just so pathetically desperate to remain relevant. Obviously she hates people, but she still wants their money to maintain her lavish lifestyle. She's a shallow and deceptive little hog beast.
This is a shameless hussy with zero dignity. You are a MOTHER! Do you think your child won't find these pictures one day?
She got an azz that puts my mules to shame. I'd like to hitch her up to the plow. Properly motivated, I could plow twenty acres a day with this freak of nature.
Amish farmers are hot
