Kim Kardashian may like to show off her body at all times.
But this doesn’t mean Kim Kardashian is totally and completely happy with her body.
In a new entry on her official app/website, Kardashian delves into the one physical trait that has plagued her for years.
It has to do with the skin she flaunts on a nearly-daily basis.
“Since I was first diagnosed with psoriasis in 2010, I’ve been pretty open about my struggles with it,” the 35-year-old reality star writes
“I have that one patch on my right leg that is most visible.
“I don’t even really try to cover it that much anymore. Sometimes I just feel like it’s my big flaw and everyone knows about it, so why cover it?”
Case in point, the following photo:
We’ll ignore the fact that Kim barely looks human here and focus instead of the aforementioned patch on her right leg.
We often come down hard on Kardashian for the way she publicly expresses her need to lose weight.
We often say sets a terrible example for young fans by focusing so much on her figure.
And we take none of that back. It’s true. She has to stop making it sound as if being skinny is all that matters for a woman.
(And she has to stop making it seem like she’s recommending a product from the bottom of her heart, as opposed to the top of her bank account.)
HOWEVER, we’ll give her props in this case. We appreciate the fact that she is opening up about an insecurity.
Kardashian first learned that she had this pretty common skin condition after seeing a dermatologist on a 2011 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
She was attending the DASH store opening in New York City when a case of psoriasis flared up; she thought the breakout was due to the sequin dress she was donning at the time.
“I thought it was just a rash caused by the fabric, but then the rash was COVERING my legs and my mom was like, ‘I think you have psoriasis!!!’” she writes, adding:
“She has it, too, and it’s hereditary, so she spotted the symptoms immediately.”
A neighbor of Kim’s in West Hollywood suggested she get the occasional cortisone shot to “help combat the inflammation.”
This is why some people think Kardashian gets butt injections to plump up her famous rear end.
She explained the true basis for her sporadic visits to the doctor earlier this month in a live Web chat.
“There is a picture of me in Miami wearing an electric blue dress, and another picture of me walking down Robertson,” she said during the August 15 livestream. “
You see the indent. And I think that’s when the rumors started: ‘She’s had implants.’”
The rumors have existed ever since Kim became a celebrity, so we’re not sure if they can be blamed solely here on her cortisone shots.
However, again, we come not to bury Kim Kardashian for once. But to praise her.
So we’ll just stop, do so and then go take a shower.
It feels dirty to say nice things about Kim!
