I’m slightly ashamed to admit that I have been watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians since the show was just a baby in the world of reality television. Like many other Kardashian fans (I use the term ‘fan’ loosely), I am basically never surprised by the weird crap that the Kardashian sisters get up to and what they choose to spend their money on.
In the latest installment in the world of the Kardashians, it has been revealed that Kim Kardashian actually spent money hiring a body double when she was pregnant. Um, what? When I first heard the news images of a ‘fake’ Kim parading around came to mind. However the body double was apparently only used for at-home wardrobe purposes. Hmm, interesting.
In a newly released clip of the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, squad mama Kris Jenner explains that Kim owes her incredible maternity style to her body double who was hired to help KK sort out her outfits with minimal effort.
“She has a body double. She has somebody come over here and put a prosthesis on like a pregnant person, and she makes them try on all of her clothes because she’s too tired to do it,” Kris Jenner tells oldest daughter Kourtney Kardashian in a clip from an upcoming episode.
Once the outfit has been tried on and approved by Kim, a photo of the body double is taken (the face blurred out) and attached to the hanger with the items of clothing so that Kim knows exactly how it is intended to be worn. While it may sound kind of insane, the body double trick is one that is commonly used backstage at fashion shows and has been simply adapted for personal use.
Sounds excessive to me but I guess if you have the money to do it, why the hell not? Honestly, I wish I could have one! Would make getting dressed in the morning a breeze.
