Mounting criticisms about her pregnancy weight gain is why Kim Kardashian has stopped smiling in her photographs. “Why should I smile to my critics,” the reality show celebrity says. Kim in an interview with C Magazine said the criticisms changed who she is. Kim said she suffered from pre-eclampsia during her first pregnancy, causing her to bloat – and sparking cruel criticism about her weight.
“I couldn’t help it, and everyone would say, ‘She can’t stop eating.’ I delivered at 180, and they were like, ‘She’s 210 pounds”, she said.
“She’s getting dumped because she’s too fat’ and all these ridiculous stories. It really took a toll after the fact, when I was losing weight. I gained 50 pounds, and it’s tough to get it off.”
“I was dedicated, but also, it changed the way I viewed wanting my picture taken,” she told the magazine. “Before I was always smiling, and so into being out and about. 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.'”
