Quick Update: After writing yesterday’s late night post I made good on my word and filled the day with really great choices. Instead of spending the last day of the long weekend on the couch I went for a run (the first one outside on months), did a strength training workout for over an hour and fueled up on whole foods all day long. Yay me!
After a major sweat-fest of a morning I spent some of yesterday’s downtime watching a marathon of Khloe and Lamar on E! Channel.
I may have avoided my fro-yo craving but made up for it with some trashy tv as my guilty pleasure.
Anyway, despite the show’s overall lack of depth I did start thinking about how the other Kardashian actually does an amazing job of exemplifying a fierce, curvy and womanly body in a world of stick think, supermodel types. And although I can’t quite grasp their success (famous for being famous?? What’s that about?!) I can get on board with any female in the spotlight who breaks the mold of what a Hollywood woman should look like.
So Ms Khloe, if you’re reading (and I know you are most definitely not) here’s my two cents. You can put it in your Chanel purse if you want…
First and foremost, I’d like to say I’m sorry- for every time I bought a magazine that called you fat or compared you to your sister or the other women of LaLa land. The truth is I think you look…well the way a tall, voluptuous woman should.
In other words I think you look great.
I know it’s probably tough on you, reading the nasty comments and insults day in and day out. I think it’s disgusting that our society feels the need to be cruel to sell tabloids. And since you look like a lot of women I know (hell you look a lot like me) it sickens me to think that that is what is deemed “fat” in your world.
I hate to say it, but it makes me glad to not be a part of all that.
And Khloe, I know I don’t know you or what parts of your real life you portray to the media, or whether you are a size 6 as you claim or a size 10 as I imagine, but girl I want to thank you for not letting your fame and fortune force you into an unhealthy lifestyle for the sake of “skinny”. In fact, thanks for not using that same fortune to lipo away what makes you, you.
I’m sure you face a lot of pressure to be thinner but know this; I think you look beautiful just the way you are. Based on what I have read it seems like you struggle with this but please just stop. Be the mainstream ambassador to beauty that the real world can relate to.
Okay, if I am being honest I think you could really rock the natural look, especially in the makeup department too but that’s another topic for another day.
On behalf of all the curvy gals who have spent a day feeling like the “big” girl in the crowd, thank you for making it just a little more normal to be normal.
Me, and all the girls like me, who are kinda just like you too.
So tell me, which celebrity do you think would make a good “Curvy Girl Ambassador”?
