Having somebody you love tell you your body isn’t good enough never feels okay. Whether somebody says you’re too short, too tall, too thin, too heavy, too flat-chested or vice versa, or anything else physicality-wise, your significant other should never insist that your body requires a change in its shape or size (unless, of course, it is a serious risk to your health and not some f’d-up vanity trip on their part). Unfortunately, Kourtney Kardashian‘s weird partner/children’s manchild father Scott Disick did just that the other night…on television.
On the most recent episode of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami,” the most disturbing thing that happened — well, second only to Kim‘s blood facial — was when Kourtney states how difficult it has been to lose her baby weight from their second child together and Disick notes that she is the heaviest he’s ever seen her when not pregnant. Um, it should go without saying that statements like this should go without saying. It’s just a cruel comment, and I’m not sure why he would make it besides to be an asshole.
But wait! There’s more. Later, when Kourtney steps on the scale and reveals she is 115 lbs. at 5 feet tall, Disick asks, “Do you know what you’re supposed to weigh for your average weight for your height?” Kourtney guesses 105, though she estimates that her weight upon their first meeting was approximately 95. Disick remains unsatisfied with this number.
“Ugh, I feel like 93 is the dream. Your body was bangin’ when I first saw you on the beach with that little ass.”
Now, Kourtney reacted almost rationally by calling his comments “disgusting.” Of course, “fully rational” may have involved going back in time to throw water in Disick’s face “on the beach with that little ass.” This fully rational reaction would’ve been especially appropriate when you consider Disick’s words upon realizing Kourtney has begun to cry over his cruel remarks.
“You know that you’re perfect. I just felt like you wanted to lose a couple extra pounds. I just feel like sometimes you want to be thinner …”
Yeah, so…my reaction would likely have looked something like this:
Something like that, only I have had a boyfriend call me fat more than once, and if I recall correctly, I also cried. Because it’s mean and you really, really shouldn’t do it. Not to your girlfriend, not to your boyfriend, not to your partner or friend or loved one of any sort, mmk?
I admit that I’ve always had an attraction to Scott Disick when I see him in photos; his appearance appeals to me in a bizarre, off-brand American Psycho way, and up until recently, I had also rarely heard him speak since I do not watch any of the Kardashian shows really. I’ve heard that his personality is typically the reason why people decide they are not attracted to him, and that I hear more of his actual statements and opinions, his kinda hot 80s ski-lift bully looks are fading in my eyes. Plus, I keep seeing photos of him doing stuff like this:
Anyway, Disick’s comments are absurd, inconsiderate and rude. It’s never all right to criticize the body of somebody you love like that unless there’s a serious reason (again, a health-related issue that requires bodily changes to help fix). Throw in the fact that he did it on camera? Yeah, I’d say he wins Asshole of the Reality TV Year((because I refuse to allow people like this to exist in my IRL idea of the world).
