The Kardashians have played the fame game long enough to know when to stay silent on gossip and when to raise hell. With the season 15 premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians upon us, Khloé Kardashian took to Instagram with a “PSA” for fans: Her lips may look bigger this season, she explained via Instagram Stories, but the reason isn’t lip injections — it’s her baby girl, True.
Her little sister (and pregnancy buddy) Kylie Jenner might prefer herself with fuller lips, but it turns out that Kardashian wasn’t a fan of her temporarily poutier look. “PSA I was pregnant during the entire season of KUWTK,” she wrote in a note to fans via Instagram Stories, according to Cosmopolitan. “Some women get ‘pregnancy lips.’ I was one of them. So my lips look crazy and massive. Trust me I know and I HATED IT!”
“A lot of wild shit happens to your body and face while pregnant. It’s out of our control,” she continued. “Most people don’t have to film during an entire pregnancy so just watch the show and be kind about my growing body and lips. Pregnant women should be off limits.” As she rightly points out, most expectant mothers don’t spend their pregnancy in front of a reality TV show camera. But regardless of whether they’re in the public eye or not, policing and/or criticizing women’s bodies, pregnant or not, is never OK.
Mommy shaming seems to have become a big topic in the Kardashian-Thompson household since baby True was born in April. Kardashian railed against trolls in a series of tweets last month: “Women who choose 2take their time after baby, I’m so proud of you! Women who choose to work out after baby, I’m so proud of you! We all must do what’s best for US!”
As season 15 unfurls — and if Kardashian continues to share her new life with True with us — let’s remember to reserve judgment on not just the world’s most famous expectant mothers, but all moms-to-be.
