Kim Kardashian appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Wednesday night where she opened up about how hurt she was by all the weight critics during her pregnancy.
“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.”
Kim seems to have been in hiding lately since baby North was born. The reality star says, “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?”
Kimmy explains the purpose behind that epic swimsuit selfie, ”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 Leno. “This is like my big middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat.”
You tell ‘em, Kim!
