More and more often it seems like I write about magazines that photoshop women excessively when doing their diet stories. OK! is a frequent offender but for them even this goes too far. For now we will gloss over the fact they put a Kardashian on their cover. That is a much different crime. The picture on the left was taken of Kourtney Kardashian about a week after her baby was born and was on the cover of a different magazine. The one on the right? Well it has never been taken. She didn't pose for OK! and she didn't give them an interview. OK! just took the other photo, dropped about 20 pounds from her and are selling the issue as her diet secrets.
How is this supposed to make a woman feel who had a baby a month ago like Kourtney? Why can't she be back to her pre-baby weight and totally perfect looking one month later? To me this is wrong on so many levels. It is misleading and harmful. It is a lie perpetrated on the entire world. The sad thing is many many people will buy this issue, follow the diet and will wonder what is wrong with them when they don't look like Kourtney. This has got to stop.
