Khloé Kardashian Slammed for Giving Tips on How To Look ‘Thin AF’ in Photos

Saturday, March 10th, 2018

For a long time, Khloé Kardashian was known as the “fat” sister in the Kardashian-Jenner family. She’s spoken endless times about it in interviews, and even has a show called “Revenge Body” on E! where she helps people shed weight to prove others wrong. (The show is controversial in its own right, but that’s an argument for another day.)

So, considering her past and her efforts toward body-positivity, people were shocked when the 33-year-old published a recent article on her app, Khloé With a K, titled “5 Hacks to Look Thin AF in Photos.” 

The hacks are as follows:

  1. Hide behind your BFFs
  2. Only allow your photographer to shoot from above
  3. Stick your chin out
  4. Make your arms and shoulder werk
  5. Wear black or vertical stripes

A sixth bonus tip says “a spray-tan is your bestie, and direct sunlight is your mortal enemy. If you’re sitting, cross your legs at your ankles so your thighs and calves look super slim. And, when in doubt, put a bag over your belly, like I did to hide my baby bump!”

Reading over the list, a lot of what she says is common knowledge, like wearing stripes and not taking photos from underneath you. But still, the message of needing to look thin to look good is glaring. She prefaced the tips by saying this is how to have a “sick bod” and “My tips really work, too! Study up below and get ready for your Insta comments to blow the f*ck up, lol!”

Unsurprisingly, people weren’t happy with her equating a sick bod to a thin one, and that the only way to garner attention is by following these tips. Almost all the comments on her Twitter post are negative and are different variations of what user @deehudsy replied: “Not something you should be promoting. Maybe 5 hacks to start living your healthiest, happy, best AF life…nah?”.

As much as we love Khlo for her honesty, we can’t disagree with what people are saying in response to her tips. Even if they were prompted as a joke (because is that first one real???), there’s no parlaying of body confidence here. Rather, it’s right in line with societal standards of beauty and the need to look a certain way for social media.

We thought Khlo would know better, but hopefully next time she just does better.


Kim Kardashian Slams Mommy-Shamers Who Accused Her of Partying When Her Son Was Sick

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

Don’t come for Kim Kardashian‘s parenting, lest you want to be called out in front of her 58 million followers. On Wednesday, the 37-year-old reality star lashed out at mommy-shamers who accused her of partying on New Year’s Eve when her 2-year-old son, Saint West, was sick with pneumonia at the hospital.

The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star promptly shut down the rumors and explained that she didn’t leave Saint’s side for “one minute” when he was in the hospital from Wednesday to Saturday of last week. When the doctor provided clearance and the family was able to return home on Saturday night, Kim could celebrate New Year’s Eve on Sunday.

“I haven’t heard this BUT lets get this straight. I did not leave my son for one minute during his hospital stay. We were there Wednesday night to Saturday. NYE WAS SUNDAY NIGHT,” she tweeted.

The mom of two also explained that she didn’t invite people over until after Saint fell asleep. She then warned anyone to stay away if they were going to talk smack about her mothering. “People came over when he was already asleep for the night! Don’t even try me when it comes to my kids,” she wrote.

Kim’s tweet accompanied a tweet from a fan who brought to her attention that there were people who suspected that she was partying on New Year’s Eve while her son was in the hospital. On Tuesday, the middle Kardashian sister revealed that Saint was hospitalized for three days, where he was hooked up to IVs and oxygen machines, after falling ill with pneumonia.

“We are so grateful for you all! He’s home and all better. He’s so resilient I’m sure he will still say the ambulance ride was cool! My strong Saint 👼🏽” she wrote on Instagram.

Given how many times Kim has hit back at mommy-shamers—from those who accused her of snorting cocaine when her children were present to those who questioned the outfits she puts her daughter in—you would think that critics knew better than to talk smack. At least Kim was there to give them another reminder that she is not to be messed with.


5 Celebrity Makeup Tricks from a Kardashian Makeup Artist

Friday, September 29th, 2017

You’re likely well-aware that Kim Kardashian employs an entire glam squad to keep her camera-ready. That illustrious group of beauty pros includes Patrick Ta, La Mer Global Makeup Ambassador who, in addition to Kim and sister Kylie Jenner, has also painted the faces of Gigi Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Olivia Munn—all while earning a massive social media following of his own.

Here, Ta shares five no-nonsense tips that will make your daily routine easier and a little more glamourous.

Prep Your Skin

“Even those with oily skin can be a little dry,” says Ta. “I always want to make sure that skin is nice and moisturized prior to applying foundation, because the more plump your skin is, the more natural and flawless the skin looks. No cakeyness!” La Mer The Moisturizing Gel is one of his favorites to hydrate all skin types without the shine or grease factor.

Contour First

Contrary to popular belief, Ta believes it’s best to apply contour prior to foundation to achieve a healthy, lit-from-within glow. Brushing the foundation over contour decreases the chance of stark bronze lines on cheekbones and makes the tan appear way more natural. “The Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate blends out nicely, especially when used with a fluffy brush,” Ta advises. 

Mix It Up

“I like for skin to look like skin—healthy, glowy and gorgeous,” Ta says. “Mixing a face oil with foundation helps to break down the formula so you can really see the complexion.” Remember, the more oil you add, the less coverage you’ll have, so if you’re looking to heavily camouflage imperfections, just add a drop. However, if you’re looking for a barely there foundation, mix in a generous dime-sized dollop.

Make Brows Bold

Ta favors full brows to frame the face. “Apply Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade with a small angled brush, and brush forward the end of your brow in small strokes,” he recommends. “Those brows will not move all day!” Be advised that a little bit does go a long way.

Always Highlight

Everyone wants a romantic, candle-lit glow without the overdone look or cake-factor.  Ta recommends setting a highlighter with a mist. “This will break down the particles a bit, while keeping all of the beautiful sparkle.”


How Kourtney Kardashian Uses Green Tea to Help Keep Her Diet Balanced

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

As a mom of three, Kourtney Kardashian is always thinking about the healthiest options—not just for her little ones, but for herself. But as a mere human, the 38-year-old reality star knows how hard it is sometimes to fight cravings, which is why she’s picked up a smart trick over the years to resist less-healthy foods and stay on track with a balanced diet.

In a new post on her website, Kourtney revealed that bread baskets at restaurants are one of her biggest vices. And though bread isn’t bad (hello, we love it) devouring a whole basket’s worth before digging into an entrée that likely contains important nutrients like protein and fiber may not what be everyone’s body always wants or needs.

So, Kourtney said her first order of business when eating out is to a cup of green tea with almond milk and honey. Of course, the tea isn’t to replace her food; it’s simply to keep her hands and taste buds occupied with a healthy option until her real meal arrives. And while the fact that green tea is good for you certainly isn’t groundbreaking—it’s well-established and research-backed that the drink contains tons of antioxidants, nutrients, and can benefit your body in major ways—we like the idea of sipping on something sweet, satisfying, and good for you while waiting for an entrée.

The post, titled “How I Eat Healthy Wherever I Go,” also delved into Kourtney’s other health tips, including the fact that she’s not afraid to ask point-blank where her food is coming from. “I talk to the restaurants in my neighborhood and find out where they source their food. I’ll ask if their meat is grass-fed, whether or not their produce is organic or local, things like that,” she wrote. “Being informed helps me choose the best local restaurants to go to with my family.”

As for times when there aren’t many healthy options around, like the airport, the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star makes sure to pack a bag of Kourtney-approved snacks for her kids to munch on. “Bringing your own snacks—especially for the kids—is a great way to have healthy options that everyone likes,” she wrote. “Also, if we’re gone for a big trip, I’ll pack a bag full of gluten-free snacks to bring with us, so we have our pantry staples wherever we go.”

Though Kourtney’s diet might seem strict to some, it’s important to note that she’s simply sharing a system that works for her, and everyone’s body is different. What works for Kourtney may not work for you. If restaurant bread baskets are one of your great joys in life (raises hand) then we certainly don’t advocate depriving yourself.


Khloe Kardashian Got Fewer Deals Than Sisters Because She Was ‘Heavier’

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

The Kardashian-Jenners are some of the most sought-after influencers for lucrative and high-profile Instagram sponsorships. But for a time, Khloe Kardashian was left out of that pack. In a new essay for Glamour, the 33-year-old reality star opens up about her body insecurities and how she got significantly fewer endorsement deals than her sisters, Kim and Kourtney, because she was “heavier.”

In the essay, which looks back at Khloe’s 10-year journey on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the youngest Kardashian sister admits that she didn’t see the impact of reality TV fame until the “fourth or fifth season.” This is largely because she was often passed over for sponsorships and endorsement deals because she didn’t have the same body as her sisters. “The truth is that I was heavier then too, so not a lot of endorsements were coming my way,” Khloe writes. “Brands would prefer to align themselves with Kim or Kourtney, which I was totally fine with because I was still along for the ride. But it’s also a very sad thing to realize that most brands are interested only in pretty, cute, in-shape girls.”

The experience led Khloe to partner with less glamorous brands, like tampon companies, so that she could fit in. She admitted that the experience eventually drained her self-worth—something she didn’t fully realize until recently, when she became more comfortable in her skin.

“There were things I did back then that made me think, ‘Why am I doing this?’ I once did a deal with a tampon company, and I was like, ‘Why am I so thirsty?’ But I was young, and you feel pressure; you see your sisters getting deals and you’re like, ‘Should I be doing something? Is a pad commercial all I can get? Well, OK then.’ The older you get, and the more comfortable you become in your skin, the more you begin to think about what makes sense for you. ”

However, judging from Khloe’s story, it seems like the unrealistic body standards for women in the world of Instagram sponsorships hasn’t changed. Khloe admits that it wasn’t until she began exercising more and changing her body that endorsement deals started ramping up. “When I started getting in shape and when I first got married, a different amount of attention came my way,” she wrote. “Because I had already seen my sisters go through it, I was able to be pickier about my opportunities.”

Sigh. While it’s not exactly news that major brands don’t always prioritize diverse beauty standards in their ads, we hope that Khloe speaking up about the experience will help raise awareness—for both brands and consumers—that the norms they so often perpetuate can be seriously destructive to women, even one as seemingly confident and empowered as Khloe Kardashian.


Kim Kardashian Accused of Wearing Blackface to Match North West’s Skin Tone

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Update: Aug. 29, 2017 at 5:05 p.m. EST

Kim Kardashian is being accused of wearing blackface in her Jackie Kennedy-themed Interview magazine photoshoot with her 4-year-old daughter, North West. The 36-year-old reality star, who also came under fire for equating herself to the late First Lady, is now being criticized for what some perceive as darkening her skin to match her daughter’s. West, who’s the daughter of Kanye West, is half-black.

Given that the interview discussed the KKW Beauty mogul’s reality raising a biracial daughter, many critics saw Kardashian’s supposed darkened skin tone as hypocritical. Other critics slammed the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star for allegedly attempting to make the mother-and-daughter photoshoot more aesthetically pleasing by matching her skin tone to her half-black daughter.

As of publication, Kardashian nor Interview has responded to the blackface allegations.

Original story: Aug. 28, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. EST

A new Kim Kardashian photo shoot is stirring up controversy—and this time, it’s not for her usual nude antics. Instead, the 36-year-old reality star is fully dressed and posing with her 4-year-old daughter, North West. The concept is as non-controversial as can be—aside from the fact that Kim is dressed head-to-toe as Jackie Kennedy.

The photoshoot, which was for Interview magazine’s September issue, features Kim dressed in several Jackie O-like outfits, such as a fitted wool Chanel dress with gloves and a brunette bouffant, an ankle-length black dress with pearls, and tons of other tweed and wool skirt-suits fit for a First Lady.

Interview even deemed the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star as the country’s most powerful woman with the headline “America’s New First Lady,” which accompanied a piece written by Janet Mock.

Though celebrities have been dressing up as John F. Kennedy‘s wife for years off-screen and on, Interview‘s declaration that Kim is America’s new First Lady and that she possesses as much stature as Jackie O seems a little odd—even if her husband Kanye West half-joked that he was going to run for President in 2020.

And while it’s undeniable that Kim has built an empire for herself and arguably her five siblings and numerous other Kardashian-adjacent celebrities, putting her in Jackie Kennedy’s shoes just seems like an invitation to get roasted. If you need further evidence, take a look at these tweets, calling the photoshoot all kinds of cringe-worthy.

Of course, like the PR queen she is, Kim’s Jackie O stunt might just have been coincidentally timed to overshadow the shade Taylor Swift threw at her with her new music video last night. If this is true, maybe Kim does deserve the label of First Lady for her epic abilities to manipulate optics.

Kim Kardashian Ordered McDonald’s Right Before Boarding a Private Jet

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

With bank accounts like the Kardashian-Jenners, it’s easy to imagine reality television’s royal family eating like kings and queens on the reg—with five-star meals probably staples in their diets. But like the semi-regular people they are, the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” ladies can’t just eat Health Nut salads and gold-encrusted food forever. This was proven when Kim Kardashian and hubby Kanye West were caught redhanded digging into a bag of greasy McDonald’s right before boarding a private jet. (As regular people do.)

We learned of Kim’s McDonald’s order over the weekend when her younger sister Khloe snapchatted her devouring a large thing of Mickey D’s fries while waiting for her private jet to San Francisco. But of course, you can’t expect Kim to just fuel up on fries, right?! In the video, Kim, Kanye, Khloe, her boyfriend Tristan Thompson, and a few other friends can be seen waiting on an airport tarmac for their ride.

The clip also shows Khloe and Tristan looking at Kim in amazement as she gobbles fry after fry with a large whipped cream-topped milkshake ready as the next course. While Khloe doesn’t indulge with Kim (makes sense, considering her strict seven-meal-a-day diet), Kanye—who is holding a brown McDonald’s bag of his own—does reach in to steal few fries.

But don’t feel bad for Khloe, either. Even if the youngest Kardashian sister is on a diet that involves eating 12 (yes, exactly 12) almonds for a meal, it appears she also got Mickey D’s to go, judging from the iconic brown paper bag she gripped in her hands.

While we’ll have to wait to find out Khloe’s go-to McDonald’s order, at least we know that Kim—who’s also documented herself pigging out to Kentucky Fried Chicken and In-N-Out—loves a good large fry and vanilla milkshake. Sounds like she’s hitting all the right food groups.


These #TBT Pics of Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton Will Bring You Back to 2006

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

It may have been Sunday, but that didn’t stop Paris Hilton from posting the most epic #TBT photos of her and a little-known gal named Kim Kardashian vacationing in 2006. If you weren’t around in the mid ’00s, first, you missed out on some killer fashion trends, second, here’s a little history lesson.

Before Kim Kardashian was, well, Kim Kardashian, she was actually Paris Hilton’s assistant. Yup. About a decade ago, instead of picking out her own designer gowns to uber-luxurious fashion galas and red carpets, Kim was doing menial tasks like cleaning Paris’s closet and making reservations for her at restaurants.

Now you’re caught up with a pre-“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” era Kim, let’s go back to the amazing set of #TBT photos Paris posted on Sunday. Two days ago, Paris pretty much broke the Internet when she shared four super nostalgic photos of her and Kim partying it up in Ibiza in 2006. In the photos, the former boss and employee, who were accompanied by DJ Caroline D’Amore, can be seen doing things like taking selfies with wet hair, taking selfies in a club, taking selfies on a yacht, and taking selfies while getting Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. (Essentially, a lot of selfies.)

“Good Times in Ibiza with @KimKardashian & @CarolineDamore#GirlsTrip2006,” Paris tweeted.

Naturally, Kim concurred with her own response. “Best trip!” she tweeted back.

To celebrate the Paris-Kim reunion, the people of the Internet couldn’t help by replying all with their own #TBT pics of Kim. Among those tweets were GIFs of Paris and Kim on “The Simple Life” in which Paris told Kim to stop talking to her, as well as the two sipping on Grey Goose and texting on pretty much prehistoric BlackBerries.

Thank you @ the world for bringing these photos into our lives. In the words of Paris Hilton, “That’s hot.”


North West Will Only Allow Kim Kardashian to Photograph Her Under This Condition

Monday, July 10th, 2017

North West knows what she wants and how to get it—especially when it comes to capturing her best side. We mean, she learned from the best. Her mom is selfie extraordinaire Kim Kardashian and she comes from a long line of expert selfie-taking family members (See: Kylie Jenner), so it would make sense that the 4-year-old would start her list of selfie-related demands sooner or later. First up: No flash.

For a lot of us, flash photography can make us look greasy, red-eyed, or downright bad. Obviously aware of these downsides, North is already implementing her no-flash condition. We first learned of North’s no-flash rule in an adorable Instagram video of the toddler and her cousin, Penelope Disick, getting ready for Kourtney Kardashian‘s daughter’s 5th birthday party as proud mama Kim videotapes them.

The cute clip begins with North, dressed in a patch-filled denim jacket and some oversized heels, stomping (more like, wobbling) toward Kim to demand her to put her phone down and get moving already.

“We’re going out to go to a party!” she tells her mom. “No! Not flash!”

“No, no. Okay, no flash,” Kim responds, laughing.

The video continues with North and Penelope breaking down all the party’s fun-filled festivities: mermaid cakes, 97 mermaids, balloons, a shower, and towels.

“A shower and towels? Wow. That’s going to be a wild party,” Kim joked to her daughter.

While the party also included a rap performance by Will Smith and his son, Jaden, let’s be real, nothing is more exciting a shower and towels. Also, let’s pray that no one took a picture of North with flash because that’s def one way to ruin a girls’ night out.

Kim Kardashian Can’t Be in the Same Room When This Completely Normal Thing Happens

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Kim Kardashian has said and done a lot of insane things in her day. But something actually stopped us in our tracks today as we scrolled through her app. Turns out that girlfriend absolutely loathes the very thing that many humans around the world encounter on an extremely regular basis.

“I hate the sleeve on a Starbucks cup,” she wrote. “I leave the room for someone to take it off for me because I cringe from the sound. It’s like nails on a chalkboard for me. I hate cardboard.”

Wait, what?! Everyone has a pet peeve, but we’ve never heard of this one. She has to leave the room to have someone remove her Starbucks sleeve?! Also, important question: If she’s paying someone to take off her coffee sleeve, can’t she pay them to deliver her coffee to her sans sleeve in the first place? And a final side note: Kim does realize that those cardboard sleeves exist on coffee cups at many coffee shops, right? Or does she think they’re exclusive to Starbucks?

This revelation was part of a very special “20 Things You Don’t Know About Me,” and we have to say—damn right we didn’t know this about her. In fact, several of the items on the list were things we really didn’t know. Usually, these “things you didn’t know about me” lists are just thinly veiled opportunities for self-aggrandizement, but this one had a few juicy details.

Other than the level-five crazy pet peeve, Kim also let loose that she has a freckle on her eyeball, cheated on tests by using the sign language alphabet, and has “never had a cold coffee drink from Starbucks or Coffee Bean.” But does she hate the Coffee Bean’s cardboard sleeve as much as Starbucks’?
