Shhh! I want to let you in on a few dark secrets about Kim Kardashian. Beware however, you probably shouldn't read this if you're a big fan of Kim K. This is meant to expose her very vain, yet fake image. We've all been there. You can't really say that you've never once tuned in on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, or looked at her NSFW photos. She shares everything with you! Her life, her family, her styles, and even her body. Or does she? In actuality, Kim Kardashian West only shares what she wants you to know.
Kim has spent over a decade fooling us all. The Selfish author has built an entire empire off of promoting what? You guessed it. None other than herself. She's really quite seasoned at it. However, promoting oneself also means that you have to be very good at choosing what to share, and what not to share. Just about every move Kim makes is recorded, shared on Snapchat, or Tweeted, but it's also heavily promoted. Every product, vacation, and most events. That time that Kim called out Taylor Swift for lying and playing a damsel in distress, that was nothing to Kim. That's how she got where she is today. So how much of what you're shown is the real Kimberly Kardashian?
Let's just start by explaining what's fake. We aren't going to tell you about her marriage to Kris Humphries. Or about the stuff that she purposely slips to the media, and this most certainly isn't about "the tape". You've heard enough about all of that. This is about the other ways Kim Kardashian rose to fame. The things that she really doesn't want you to know.
15 Stolen Fashion Trends
Kim Kardashian often gets credited for trends that she never started. What's even worse is that many of these trends should be credited to another race entirely, but only became known as popular in the media because of Kim. Take those cornrows for instance. Cornrows have been worn by black women and men for ages. It's never been out of style, as many news outlets claimed. The style has been worn by Jada Pinkett-Smith, Queen Latifah, Allen Iverson, and many others.
14 Hidden Cellulite
Kim's business thrives off of her sex appeal. She isn't just famous because of a sex tape. She's also famous for having what she wants you to believe is the perfect body. Unfortunately, there is no perfect body. There are plenty of options to make it appear as though there are. Kim Kardashian is the top spokesperson for such products. Oils, contour, make-up, and enhancements. You name it, she's done it. She might say she hasn't, but she has.
13 Dating Famous People
Kim's mobile game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, has been a massive hit for a couple of years now. The entire point of the game is to start off as an E-list celebrity, and work your way up to A-list. It's pretty easy to recognize that the game is based off of Kim's personal journey. In the game, Kim is helping you along your path to fame. You also get tips across the bottom during loads. One tip is to date famous people. Why? Because this will get you more fans, of course!
12 Humorless Husband
I guess saying that Kanye doesn't have a sense of humor at all wouldn't make much sense. It's obvious that the couple can laugh it up just fine. Especially, when they are included in on the gag. Apparently, Kanye can be quite humorless when the joke isn't prepared beforehand. Such was the case when Amy Schumer literally flung herself at their feet.
11 Fake Friends
Kim Kardashian has always had trouble making true friends in Hollywood. We can't really say why, but there have been plenty of lists pointing out who can't stand her, and their possible reasons. Mostly because her fame came from more scandal than talent, or more from who she knew vs who she was. Either way Kim wouldn't want you to know that most of her Hollywood friends are fake.
10 Kanye's Visit With Trump
Last September, it was rumored that Kim was "on the fence" about voting for Donald Trump. However, she also admitted that the original mix-up was due to her relaying that she might not vote for either candidate. The entire snafu caused quite a stir among both those closest to Kim, and her fans. Kim was very adamant in clearing the air. She later stated that she was voting for Hillary Clinton, and she was definitely with her.
9 Pretty Much Talentless
You've got to admit that not all of Kim's fame came from "the tape". There are so many others that have attempted to come up this way and failed miserably. In fact, some of their tapes did more damage than good to their images. There were a combination of contributing situations and parties involved which led to her fame. She has beauty, a flock of famous friends, boyfriends, husbands, family, and controversy.
8 Party Girl
Before her questionable rise to fame, Kim was only famous because of her father's connections. Robert Kardashian, lawyer to the stars. Mainly OJ Simpson if name-dropping is necessary. Not exactly how you want to be known, but it's a start. Obviously she needed some more connections and what better way to get them than from the it-girls of the 2000s? Kim's only problem was that they were also the turn up girls of the generation.
7 Her First
Nobody wants their first conquest aired out like old dirty laundry. Not women, at least. This is one out of many private matters that even Kim has tried to keep to herself. In most cases she would flaunt her past flings (the famous ones anyway) as often as possible. However, when it comes to Tito Joe Jackson, or TJ Jackson who was Kim's first, she dances around the subject.
6 Worked For Her Friends
Okay! You probably already know that a few of your favorite Kim Kardashian memes, just happen to be 100% fake. Particularly, the ones where Paris Hilton is savagely bossing Kim around, and the one where she is criticizing her for speaking out of turn. In actuality, Paris is talking to Kim about silly wardrobe choices and other socialite gibberish. However, this doesn't mean that Kim's remarkable come-up was any less shocking for her so-called friends of that era.
5 Lots of Photoshop
Kim's famous status has been maintained by her famous
booty body. So of course, she'd do anything to keep her Photoshop skills a secret. There have been numerous controversies about several photos that have been posted by Kim. All of which have been met by firm denials. Take Fergie's music video for M.I.LF. $, for instance. She put those rumors of her photoshopped waist to rest quickly, by posting some photos of her in a corset.
4 Anything For Kanye
A woman willing to do anything for her husband is most likely a dream come true for most men. Yet, it doesn't help your image much when you're Kim Kardashian. Kim has always succeeded because she choose to put herself first. Since getting married, it appears that she has allowed Kanye to take over her entire lifestyle. Apparently, this included stripping her closet to replace everything with items that fit his approval. At one point it was even suggested that he might send her to finishing school to learn proper etiquette.
3 Her Butt Is NOT Real
You don't buy it when Kim claims that her butt is totally real, do you? We're not saying that those rumors about the butt pads are true. What we are saying is that it's enhanced. Maybe not surgically, but at least by injections. She doesn't want you to know it, but something changed back there, somewhere between the video with Ray J and now. That something most certainly wasn't natural!
2 Her First Marriage
Kim didn't want you to know details about her first marriage to Damon Thomas. Kim was only 19 when they married, and it was back in 2000, long before she found fame. Their marriage only lasted about three years, before they divorced in 2004. The couple had claimed irreconcilable differences, but leaked court documents were revealed, which showed Kim had claimed that Damon was often violent. Meanwhile, Damon claimed he had caught Kim cheating and had decided to end their marriage.
1 Struggles With Motherhood
It appears that Kim has it all and wants to prove she can handle it, but wanting and doing are two separate things. One area where she really struggles is motherhood. Don't get me wrong. She's not awful as a parent, but she reportedly treats North West like an accessory. Not a toddler who needs a stable schedule, with naps and playtime. It's understandable that Kim would want to show off her children, but is it really necessary to take North everywhere?
North caused quite a stir at New York Fashion Week last year. Apparently, she was the reason behind a new rule, banning children from future fashion shows. This was following not one, but two outbursts from North during fashion shows that week. Not that it was North's fault, of course.
