Is Kim Kardashian trying to score a Weight Watchers deal?

Kim Kardashian

Ever since Kim Kardashian got pregnant, I’ve been thrust into the awkward position of having to defend her against people saying she’s “too fat.” You know, because apparently packing on a few pounds while pregnant is the worst thing you can do. Well, it turns out Kim may be talking up her weight gain and wearing stupid, ill-fitting clothing so that she can score a multi-million dollar Weight Watchers deal, because why wouldn’t Kim use her pregnancy for money and attention? Page Six reports …

Industry observers are speculating that the blossoming reality star, who’s due in July with her child with Kanye West, was making a play for a megabucks deal with a weight-loss program to help her lose the baby weight, following in the footsteps of Weight Watchers’ currently pregnant spokeswoman, Jessica Simpson. Kim has drawn ridicule for strutting around in tight-fitting couture maternity wear, including sky-high heels, snug dresses and A-line skirts. The baffling choices have prompted fashion commentator Amy Tara Koch to quip, “It’s like she’s trying to stuff 5 pounds of baloney into a 1-pound bag.” Her size has also giving the celebrity tabloids fodder to publish headlines about the starlet’s ballooning figure, including this priceless kicker from In Touch: “Kim’s 200-lb. Nightmare: I Can’t Stop Eating!” Kardashian this week tweeted about her unhealthy food cravings, posting photos of french fries and a burger from In-N-Out with a caption: “Damn!!! I spoke too soon! My 1st pregnancy craving! #InNOut #EnjoyingEveryBite.”

On one hand, of course Kim would spend the entirety of her pregnancy thinking about how she’d use it to make a quick, undeserved buck, because that’s essentially how Kim thinks about everything in her life. On the other hand, Kim has always been known for not shutting up about whatever banal bullsh!t is currently going on in her life, and she’s also been known for wearing tacky, ill-fitting clothes that look like a leopard trash-heap. I mean, I have no doubt she’s shamelessly whoring out for money, but that’s just because it’s what she always does.
