Kim Kardashian has been working really hard to get her “post-baby body” back to pre-baby levels of socially acceptable sexiness. The process started when she announced that she was using Atkins products and Tracy Anderson to get back in shape, and culminated with a boob- and stomach-baring post-workout selfie last week. Kim looked great, but the bendy walls in the background made everyone (including us) think the pictures were the subject of some ham-fisted Photoshopping. But now Radar Online says the accusations have thrown Kim into a Kardashian rage.
“I am so disciplined & work so hard!” she complained on Twitter. “Just trying to motivate others & show anyone struggling with weight they can totally achieve whatever they want if they are dedicated!”
Yeah, we don’t believe for a moment that she posted her post-workout selfies to motivate anybody. She posted them to show us how hot she is, and that’s fine. Showing us how hot she is is Kim Kardashian’s main job, and it’s made her a millionaire several times over.
But Kim’s protestations don’t do much to disabuse us of the idea that she edited those images to shrink her waist. Kim Kardashian is very beautiful, and her body is amazing. We absolutely believe she is extremely disciplined, and she probably works out every day and spends a lot of time working out and monitoring her diet as closely as Gwyneth Paltrow. We completely believe she works out way more than most of us and works really, really hard to look the way she does. We do not, however, believe that this picture was not Photoshopped.
The random, bending doors in the background are what make this picture seem so obviously Photoshopped. That’s not to say that Kim Kardashian’s body is not something she should be proud of. It’s obvious from un-Photoshopped outdoor paparazzi pictures that Kim’s figure is gorgeous. She doesn’t need Photoshop at all. But that doesn’t mean that she didn’t alter the heck out of that gorgeous figure and post the results on Instagram.
