Kourtney Kardashian's Post Baby Bod Really IS a Hoax

By jeannesager |

ok-mag-photoshop-kardashianWe might still be debating whether OctoMom’s stretchmarks could magically disappear without surgery, but there’s no doubt Kourtney Kardashian had some work done to get down to a twig post-baby.

At least, her photos had some work done – Kardashian is crying foul after OK! ran photos of a svelte postpartum bod she says is not even hers.

And can we say, Kourtney, we’re with you?

The post-partum “ooh, let’s get in on that weight loss secret” mags make most of us normal don’t have a trainer or nanny moms sick to begin with, and the reminders from health mags that “this isn’t normal,” don’t exactly help when you’re staring the evidence in the face. We might be strong, invincible women, but we also have loose skin and we’re still bleeding like stuck pigs two weeks after leaving the hospital.

We’re not the same woman we were pre-birth, and even the sheer happiness of having that baby doesn’t make it easier. It’s hard to accept change, ladies and gents, and there’s nothing like what a baby does to your body to make you want to hide out in giant caftans for the rest of your life.

So here’s a little comeuppance for the mag industry that’s made a living off of making us miserable. Women’s Wear Daily reports Kardashian says she never even sat for photos with OK! – they allegedly lifted a photo she did for Life & Style, which shows her with a very normal post-partum bump – and not only chopped off the belly but created an entire new bottom to fill out what was once a cropped shot.

Not only that, but Kardashian has been tweeting that there were mistakes in the story that take her from normal pregnant lady to uber woman – take this one: “One of those weeklies got it wrong again…they didn’t have an exclusive with me. And I gained 40 pounds while pregs, not 26…But thanks!”

A celeb gain an average amount of weight while carrying her baby? Gasp!

Kardashian told WWD she hasn’t lost all of that weight either – so the so-called diet secrets somebody’s gobbling up aren’t going to do much for anyone.

Between OctoMom’s impossible claims and now this, it makes you want to go munch on some Girl Scout cookies and watch bad TV, doesn’t it?

    Comments i really do not care one iota about the kardashians, as they really would not even be famous,if thier lawyer father had not represented the murderer simpson.

    she looks fine to me…everything below the waste expands after squeezing out a baby…not to mention the weight of the child and placenta, and the curve of your back while being pregnant…I’m sure that picture is pretty spot on. She like any woman is being overly critical of her figure…her face is pretty….she should just be satisfied with that for awhile…that, and she’s 10-11 yrs too old to be playing this “young mom, who’s stuck in a bad relationship”..c’mon…if I were as old as she is, along with the money she’s got going on, there’s no way I would put up with that mess…I would take my money, get full custody, and blow men off for awhile until something better and beyond decent comes into the picture…that is just absolute and utter retardation on her part!
