The Kardashian sisters and other celebrities are firing back at the weight critics. Who’s been sticking it to the critics lately?
Last night on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” Kim responded to recent media criticisms about her pregnancy weight gain.
As she explained, “I think it’s a little bully-ish to call a pregnant woman fat. I mean, what do you expect? I hope I gain weight. I’m a little heavy. There’s just more to love right now.”
She also pointed out, “I have the rest of my life to be skinny and to lose weight and I’m not really worrying about it. If I have a craving I’ll go for it.”
Kim also said that she cares more about the baby than about the headlines. “Obviously I want to be healthy for the baby and for myself, so I’m not overdoing it. But I think it’s kind of mean, all the comments that I see, whether it’s ‘she’s wearing heels.’ That makes me feel good and sexy at least being heavier. So if I feel good, my baby will feel good.”
While Kim is fending off criticisms for being “too fat,” Kendall has taken some hits for being “too thin.”
As Kendall explains, “I’m constantly criticized for being too skinny. I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen. What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat. It’s not a nice feeling.”
Are Kendall’s grievances justified? Is being called too skinny the same as too fat? Readers seem to be divided on this one. In an omg! poll, 51 percent responded “for sure!” while 49 percent responded “no way!”
I’m with the 51 percent–the media seems to be equal opportunity when it comes to weight-shaming!
Scott finds himself on the other side of the fence. He’s been taking hits from the fans for being too critical of baby mama Kourtney Kardashian’s post-pregnancy weight.
This month on “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami,” Scott ranted, “Right now seems to be probably the heaviest she’s ever been not pregnant, When we had Mason I remember her trying to whip herself back into shape pretty quick. This time around it seems like it’s the least of her concerns, and the only thing she thinks about are the kids.”
He also commented that her goal weight should be 93 pounds and that her body used to be “bangin’.” Ouch!
After experiencing some angry backlash, he took to Twitter to strike back. “Wow seems like when talking about weight a lot of issues come up. Never realized how upset people get when a person makes a comment about weight.”
“P.s anyone who has to much to say probably had to much to eat. #fatasses” What a tool!
Given how much flack the Kardashian sisters have taken over their weight, we’re wondering, what’s the best way to respond to your critics? Kirstie seems to be taking the humorous approach.
The “Dancing With the Stars” alum has publicly struggled for years with her fluctuating weight. But this week, she decided to have a little fun.
She photoshopped her head onto an obese woman wearing nothing but a red string bikini, joking, “I was getting too skinny so last week I started drinking beer.” She has a great attitude! I have to respect someone who can laugh at herself once in awhile.
Of course, sometimes the best approach comes from actions rather than words. Last week, on the red carpet for the season four premiere screening of “The Voice,” Christina showed up looking noticeably trimmer in an A-line black and white dress and studded belt that flattered her figure, and topped it off with black Christian Louboutin heels that showcased her toned legs.
She looks great! After months of fending off criticisms about her recent weight gain, we’re pretty sure that she’s silenced her critics.
