Well, this explains a lot. I used to think that Kim Kardashian never smiled because she was exhausted from constantly hurling herself in front of cameras 24/7. Or because of the Botox. Or because she’s dead inside. Well, those reasons are probably still true but Kim also has another beauty secret apart from mountains of makeup, fillers, plastic surgeons and insecurity. When asked what keeps the fine lines of time from marking their territory on her face, she answered simply, “Don’t smile“. I guess that must be her husband Kanye West’s beauty secret as well because he smiles less than dead people.
During a session of The Master Class in Los Angeles held by Kim’s longtime make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic (the one where she denied she got a nose job), a fan asked how her face stays so young and fresh. “Lots of money, boredom and vanity darling.” was the real answer that swam inside of Kim’s head but “Don’t smile” is what she burped out of her collagen injected lips. Now, you may have rolled your eyes and sighed heavily at her answer, as did I, but wait! Kim also revealed there’s a deeper meaning behind her choice to never show any teeth. In an interview with C Magazine (via People) Kim explained that smiling during her first two pregnancies contributed to her weight gain, and the weight gain led to body shaming, and the body shaming led to tears that she never wants to experience again.
“Last time [contributed to] not only the weight, but also the swelling that everyone would make fun of, not understanding that I had this condition,” the reality star, who suffered preeclampsia in her first two pregnancies which caused her to bloat, said in an interview with C Magazine.
Ultimately, Kardashian West said that the body shaming she faced while pregnant “changed the way I viewed wanting my picture taken.”
“Before I was always smiling, and so into being out and about,” she said. “After I had the baby, I was like, ‘These are the same people that made fun of me, and posted the stories that were so awful, calling me fat for something I couldn’t control.’”
How many of you heard “wah, Wahhhh, WAHHHHH!” with her explanation?
Kim claims that her decision to not smile has forever changed her personality, which I chuckled at because I never think of Kim as a person who has a personality. She’s a walking mannequin, so what her answer should have been was, “Smiling takes too much work when you’re this beautiful so I just stopped“. Oh, you can stop smiling all you want to Kimmy. But eventually, the lines are going to bumrush your face like it’s a stage at a Wu Tang concert. That is, unless she can somehow get a hold of the immortality potion from Death Becomes Her. Who am I kidding? Kim already has 100 cases of that shit hidden somewhere that she plans to break open on her 40th birthday. And Kim better pray that Kris Jenner doesn’t find out where it is, because if she does, she will drink it all in one sitting.
