Kim Kardashian Talks Weight Critics, Swimsuit Selfie, Extending "Middle Finger to the World"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Kim Kardashian came out of hiding on The Tonight Show yesterday.

Sorry, correct: the reality star was never in hiding. That was one of the topics she addressed with Jay Leno.

In an interview that covered topics such as her engagement to Kanye West and her daughter Nori, Kim started by saying she's lost 50 pounds - but struggled for awhile with those who criticized her pregnant figure.

"It really hurt my soul," she said of the critics. "It changed how I am in the public a little bit...There were these stories where I was, like, 200 pounds. I was gaining weight because I was pregnant and it was really hard to read all these stories and hear all these nasty things."

So, no, Kim says. She wasn't hiding out because she was ashamed. She just wanted to stay focused and remain a positive person.

"I just wanted to kinda adjust my life a little bit because why would I subject myself to so much negativity, especially now that I have a daughter? I just didn't need that energy, I'd rather be in a happy place at home...I've definitely tried to live more of a private life because of that, because they were so nasty. Why even go out as much just to put yourself in that position?"

That's a fair point.

But Kim also released a sexy swimsuit selfie two weeks ago. How does that fit into her desire to be more private?

"I was trying on a bathing suit and I actually just sent that to my boyfriend and I was like, "Babe, can I post this up?'" she told Jay Leno. "This is like my big middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat."

Showing off her 15-carat engagement ring, Kim said Kanye did "the best ever" in picking it out and reiterated again how shocked she was by his proposal.

When and where might the wedding take place? The summer of 2014 seems like a strong possibility. As does "someplace Parisian," Kardashian says.

"I don't think we've even had the right time to sit down and talk about it," she added. "I think I'm enjoying just being engaged and I think we're gonna get through his tour and then really talk about when and where and all that...

"I got pregnant when we were in Italy. Maybe Italy? We haven't even talked about it... Maybe I'll pick the place and then he can plan it."

Kim also confirmed that she'll be taking the last name West. It's a family thing.

"I'm probably going to have Kardashian as my middle name and then West... .My daughter has the last name West and we're a family so I want [my last name] to definitely be West."


this woman is filth inside and out. she stole from charities like the rest of her herd. repay back what you stole!!! a horrible dishonest self absorbed egotistical old whore thats still peddling herself around the block like her mother.


She is no body to the public if you talk more you will give her more fame that she thinks she is so great. Basically she will not be able to see that she is still have the fat big ass coz she thinks that the world is jealous of her..... The hell with it!!!


Correction: Oh by the way No I am not venting ok. It's true enough is enough go away Kardashian I can not wait till 2015 gets here the kardashians will be gone forever. Not hating at all there are more important issues in our world and universe to talk about rather all of these empty people who calls themselves the wicked,evil,CURSED kardashians. The family that wear BLACK majority of their FAKED out reality show.Peace.


Kim kardashian only wore black underwear to continue the backlash her and kanye west has been getting over the max selfie pics and the black little boy who RANTS on the Elites,Corporation who does not jump at his becking call not to mention who still is MOCKING GOD ON A REGULAR DAY. KIM is a very slutty little girl-wannabe princess ok. I feel so bad for their highest point NWTTHP whom they rarely spends much time with and kim only announces what the nannies update on NORI-SEAWEED PRINCESS.What type of mother is mama kimmy kakes and type of dada is kanye west who has never or should I say refuses to changer her poopy diapers now that tells you a lot kanye character of what type of true father he is behind closed doors ok. I must jayz and bey atleast they are on hands somewhat at least that is what pictures show. Oh well it is what it is BOYCOTT time go away kanyekimkake,cursedkardashian/jenner/odom America does not need your news. Peace. Oh by the way no I am venting remember it is an opinion.


There is nothing that qualifies as "quick to judge" regarding any Kardashian. They have contributed nothing of value to society in general and have been rewarded handsomely for it. They have no real ethics other than their own selfish wants and desires. They are everything we dislike and that judgement wasn't quickly.


we as a society are so quick to judge when our own personal lives are jacked up and down right ratchet. Keep on doing your thing. And when you see the haters walk the hell on by big ass and all, give them something to talk about.


I am so tired of hearing about every little thing this spoiled heffer and her sisters do. She complained about peoples comments when she made with Ray J. Then she marries the hoopster without really knowing him and is only married for seventy some days. But to top it off, her divorce isn't final, she gets herself knocked up by a self indulgant jerk, then wonders why people talk about her like they do. Hello you idiot. You are the template for every gold digging, publicity seeking, don't know what real love is female out there. Don't like the talk, don't walk the walk and keep you legs closed.


Shes so nasty and trashy.. no self respective white man would ever settle her down


Never fails. Someone makes a comment. Someone else doesn't like the comment that was made. So, the 2nd commmenter judges the 1st commenter as being judgmental. Seriously?


What's wrong with American is people like you who judge everyone else. Don't read the story if you have negative thoughts or pass judgement on others. Im sure you have a job go do it instead of reading this

@ Dont Read It

That last part of that script of yours is accurate. We do work and that's what is keeping you obama/Kardashian lovers in malt liquor and Menthol cigarettes-- oh... Free health care as well! Can we possibly help you any more? Do we need to send someone over to wipe your ass for you?
