Kim Kardashian Says That She’s Lost Even More Weight Since The Met Gala
Yes, we’re back to this fuckery again. Pimp Mama Kris must have something bad bubbling under the surface down in Kalabasas (they haven’t changed the spelling of “Calabasas” yet, but we all know it’s coming), because whenever something not so great is happening in Kardashianland, it seems like the “Satan of Spin” deploys one of the K-klan to step out on the stroll to create a diversion. Kim Kardashian has made several stops recently to promote her new skincare line SKKN by Kim, but made sure to drop some tender nuggets for people to eat up so they pay no attention to whatever krap may be going on behind the kurtain. Apparently, Kim isn’t eating any kind of nuggets though, because even though literally no one asked her, she said that she’s lost even more weight since slimming down to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s president-plundering dress for the 2022 Met Gala; and, no, that weight wasn’t the 150 pound, tattooed dudebro Pete Davidson (but I’m sure that’s on the horizon), it was five more pounds on top of the 16 she’d already lost to (still not really even) fit into Marilyn’s dress.
On The Today Show yesterday, Kim, 41, sat down with Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie to discuss the dress, the weight she lost to wear it, and the ensuing backlash she faced from some who said that she lost an unhealthy amount of weight too quickly. Kim reiterated that she fancied herself a serious performer–she had previously said it was no different than Christian Bale losing weight for a role–and then even doubled down, revealing that she kept up her regimen and lost even more. Via Us Weekly:
“It taught me a lot about my lifestyle and my health,” she continued. “Since then, afterward, I continued to eat really healthy. I’m down 21 pounds now. I’m not trying to lose any more weight, but I have more energy than ever. I cut out so much sugar, a lot of junk food I was eating … I just completely changed my lifestyle.”
When asked about the backlash she received after revealing she lost 16 pounds to be able to wear the historic Bob Mackie design, Kardashian said, “I looked at it like a role, and I really wanted to wear this dress. It was really important to me… she “would wear a sauna suit twice a day” and “run on the treadmill.” As for her meals, Kardashian “cut out all sugar and all carbs” and only ate the “cleanest veggies and protein.” The beauty mogul added: “I didn’t starve myself, but I was strict.”
Yes, I’m sure she learned a great deal by having nutritionists, personal chefs, and trainers give her exactly what she needs and instruct her on exactly what to do. Kim also talked about the accusations of the dress showing signs of damage after she squeezed her curvaceous can into it, which both she and Ripley’s refuted:
“It was such a process. I showed up to the red carpet in a robe and slippers and I put the dress on at the bottom of the carpet, went up the stairs … I probably had it on for three minutes, four minutes, and then I changed at the top of the stairs,” Kardashian explained.
She continued: “Ripley’s [and I] worked together so well. There were handlers and gloves that put it on me.”
Here’s a clip:
Buzzfeed reported on Kim’s next stop at The Tonight Show where she continued her tour to win friends and influence people by chatting with Jimmy Fallon about passing the bar exam, her and Pete’s pimples, and her skincare line. She even yelled at her kids in the audience for being too loud while she was trying to impart her vast wisdom during the interview! What can’t this woman (who has more money than God and all of the help in the world) do? I mean besides shut the fuck up about her weight or appropriately compensate her interns? Here’s Kim talking about “never seeing SNL before” (despite having an ex-husband who performed on it, has been on it herself, is currently dating someone who was on it, and was at that very moment being interviewed by someone who was on it) and then yelling at her kids, who were probably just as done hearing about her life as we all are and finally decided to revolt:
Khloe Kardashian recently sparked speculation about emptying some of the air and Fix-A-Flat out of her dumper, so surely “Kim-me-me-me” had to bring the conversation back to her own body. Watch out for Kim’s next stunt, where she tries to fit into Marilyn’s dress again but actually zip it up now that she’s shed more weight. What’s on the docket after that? Fitting into her 4-year-old Chicago West’s clothes, a la a thirsty Bethenny Frankel of yore. What’s Bret Michaels up to these days? Kim is quickly morphing her aesthetic into a perfect Rock of Love contestant and Kris is running out of stunts.
