Kourtney Kardashian Got $200K For Her US Weekly Cover

For the past week I have seen Kourtney Kardashian staring at me from the cover of Life & Style Magazine. On it, she talks about her 45 pound weight loss and is in a bikini. This week, US Weekly paid Kourtney $200K for the same cover, with a less flattering pic and the only difference I can see is that they say Kourtney lost 44 pounds and they paid $200K for the privilege of running the same exact story. Oh, and are probably ticked off that they didn't spend that money on a Kim Kardashian is pregnant story. Kourtney Kardasian on the cover make is far less likely that I will even pick it up at the checkout counter, let alone buy it. I don't want anyone to ever think I would buy something with a Kardashian on the cover. I would be embarrassed.

People are crazy about these nincompoops! It baffles!

Renoblondee said...

And good for her and all, but her weight was clearly all baby.

Cathy said...

I don't like the Kardashians, but I remember when Kourtney was on a magazine cover shortly after her first kid was born and she BLASTED them for photoshopping her body and said that she didn't want women to think her body actually looked the way the photo showed it so soon after having a baby. I respected that.

FSP said...

@Reno - nincompoop... hahaha

Ms Cool said...

Perhaps your embarassment can apply to CDAN and we can ban discussions of these nincompoops (thanks Reno).

Kourtney is not pretty at all. I can't stand the Ks. They so need to be voted off the island.

"I don't want anyone to ever think I would buy something with a Kardashian on the cover. I would be embarrassed."

Even "Mama Kris getting tortured and dismembered limb after limb for three hours"? I would pay good money to see that.

Ugh. Cuando si van a er esta gente stupida, egoista y
desagradasida.

Khole seems less awful than Kim, but Kim has ruined them all at this point and that freaking crazy ass mother.

At since I'm on rant, I wish magazines would stop obsessing about weight loss much less painting for pictures of it to sell magazines. No wonder women and men struggle what their normal weight should be rather than wanting to be thin as rails. Eating disorders are rampant. In a lifetime, an estimated 0.6 percent of the adult population in the U.S. will suffer from anorexia, 1.0 percent from bulimia, and 2.8 percent from a binge eating disorder.

The mortality rate among people with anorexia has been estimated at 0.56 percent per year, or approximately 5.6 percent per decade, which is about 12 times higher than the annual death rate due to all causes of death among females ages 15-24 in the general population.

Women are also 75 percent more likely to have a binge eating disorder (3.5 percent of women vs. 2.0 percent of men).

Sorry about my two part rant, but sometimes things like this tip me over the edge a little.

I hate these post pregnancy weight loss tallies. You didn't lose 45 lbs. You had a baby. There was placenta and all of that other stuff that came out too. Sure, she probably did lose 20 lbs or so, but the beginning weight should not include the baby. Dumb.

LottaColada said...

It's January and everywhere you turn, there is someone somewhere talking about losing holiday weight. All of the morning shows and magazines, yet I'm sitting here eating my carbolicious bagel :)

hunter said...

I just want to chime in and say I'm on a cleanse and my butt poops water. :/

Roman Holiday said...

curlyhairslacker said...

LOL @nincompoops! Well said, Reno! :)

Bluevelvet said...

Her miracle weightloss was shs had a baby.


Glitter said...

The only possible upside of this story is that the government is gonna take 50% of that money.

JSierra said...

LOL Hunter! I am about to buckle down and only eat veggies, fruits, and some meat. The weed munchies have not been treating me well lately.

And balls! Just goes to show how much people dislike Kimmie.

I said it last night and I will say it again. I watch the Kardashians, I am invested in their lives, I occasionally stalk them on Twitter.

I am out and proud!

Wen said...

I think this story is a spin from Pimp Momma. Why would they pay that much for a repeat cover of the "slow one"?

kelgela2 said...

My bff who is trying to become a singer likes the Kardashians. I told her that I will refuse to move to LA with her if she becomes friends with them. So, they are now her mortal enemies.

smash said...

Jsierra. I just discussed with my bf my usage of the word Balls. Hahaha. Yours was pretty damn good!

dia papaya said...

Oh Hunter! That sounds awful. I can never finish those cleanses bc I feel so shitty on them! Haha!!!!

Stop paying these dumb nincompoops (thanks Reno) all this money!! Why!! Give it to Mimi and Anna K and Claire D who are actually helping the world. Put them on the damn cover for a change! It's 2013. I want a better place to live = no Kuntrashians and no LiHos and anyone else deserving of famewhore island.

I am pooping positivity today! ;)

dia papaya said...

Love the use of Balls! I still hate the wicked Ks, but won't let that ruin our friendship. It will keep things spicy!!!

Have a great one girlie!

Tuxedo Cat said...

What the hell? That is not an overweight stomach, it is a pregancy. Unless I'm missing something (as usual), they are pulling something (as usual).

Plain extra fat would not show up in the shape of a beach ball. Is Khloe claiming this as straight weight loss?

JSierra said...

This is Kourtney, not Khloe on the cover. Kourtney is the one who just had a baby and is magically skinny.

Cornbread said...

I don't think she gained 45lbs with the baby. I'm at 26 weeks, starting to get the "HOW MANY BABIES IS SHE GROWING IN THERE?!" looks from people, and I've gained 15lbs so far. Of course Kourtney is short, so maybe she did put that much on, who knows.

But yes, several other commenters are right, the "before" picture clearly shows she was nearly all baby.

@hunter, I wish KK had done one of those cleanses, and Mama K had let the mag run with a story like THAT.

Fluffy White Clouds said...

I was sleepy. Should have explained I like Khole the best over Kourtney and Kim.. Sorry, my bad, I'm newish at posting. I haven't done it in nearly 8 years....So thank you JSierra, correct my ass when I mess up :)

Mango said...

@ Fluffy - "Khole" - Typo or not, I love it! Now we need some other good names for the other KBitches!

LetLoveRule said...

"How I Got Thin Fast."

"By Never Becoming Overweight in the First Place, Having a Baby, Toning Up a Bit, and a Touch of Photoshop."

It's offensive to me to act like the photo on the left is ZOMG huge fatness!!! Please.

Sherry said...

I too am amazed that there are Kardashan "Fans". Jeebus, how fucking embarrasing would it be to admit that?. Good for you Kelgela2 for talking some sense into your BFF.

Fluffy White Clouds said...

@mango I call them as a whole KarhASSians, playing how they harass the world, and Kim's giant butt.

Kim can be Khasssm, like she is a vacuous chasm and referring to her bodankadonk. Kissassian, Kumt, Kqueso, q silent as in her but is like queso (cheese)...Ok, I can't take being mean anymore...I will think of more later...

Tuxedo Cat said...

Sorry about that, yes Khloe is the very tall one. I don't even know why I"m commenting - I don't watch the show. I am just fascinated by the psychology of the whole thing.

I was wondering if Kris Kardashian was in court during the O.J. trial. I only recognized the name because Robert? Kardashian's name was on the news every night for a while. I could just see Kris, lapping all the attention up.

PookieTwo said...

TCat Kris was in court a couple of times during the OJ trial I remember the camera panning to her a few times. She was with Bruce and pregnant IIRC.

Still can't believe the the base of fame for this family isn't their talent but their tenuous connection to a horrible crime. Robert Kardashian was the least famous of all of OJ's attornies. I still believe he knew the truth, and helped cover up for OJ those first few days after the murders.

Fluffy White Clouds said...

The psychology fascinates me as well. Same reason I knew who they were. Good question, idk. I wonder if she always was master manipulator or if she grew into it after the O.J. stuff realizing she garner from her association...but ugh, your right shouldn't give too much thought.

Fluffy White Clouds said...

@pookie I just read your comment prior to my post. good stuff.

JSierra said...

It is a bit ridiculous to assume that everyone knows which one is which. I couldn't name 5 NFL athletes but I can name all of the Kardashians and Duggars. Embarrassing? Yes. Potentially useful? Probably not.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

JSierra - In your defense, the Duggars are easy to name. Just start spouting off names that start with "J" or can be shoehorned into it. They've so many kids, all the guesses would be correct!

> "I wish magazines would stop obsessing about weight loss..."

You see, that's the trick. The vile, disgusting trick.

Week 1, they show Jenny Starlet with a hot body. Lots of "toned abs and a hot booty in two minutes a day!" supplement the story.

Week 2, Jenny's gained weight, and they call her fat. Dramatic weight loss stories, with "I was so ugly at xx lbs. overweight!" articles suggest that women are hideous if fat.

Week 3, Jenny gets too thin, "does she have an eating disorder?" Other stories are "I nearly died to be thin" and "I starved to save my marriage!"

Week 4, Jenny is interviewed about beating the eating disorder and depression. It's backed up with "All bodies are beautiful" and "Men say they like their women thick!"

Week 5, they show Jenny with her healthy, hot body...... repeat.

Tuxedo Cat said...

@PookieTwo

Kris was in court even after being divorced from Robert? OMG that takes the cake. Who the hell would want to go to a trial that her ex-husband was working, and bring her new husband/BF? OH sorry there were cameras there....

Wow, why am I not surprised?

Tuxedo Cat said...

@Zeeky

It truly is an effed-up industry where 10 lbs can mean the difference between the world hating you and loving you...

Anna Namuss said...

The only difference in her before and after pics are the fact that she has a baby in her body! She gave birth and breast fed, that's how she lost the weight, by her own admission. It's easy to lose weight when you put your child down. Eegads.

Fluffy White Clouds said...

Zeeky,it is awful. :( Thank you for your response.��

PookieTwo said...

TCat - Kris had been good friends with Nicole Simpson, used to hang out with her and OJ as couples when she was still w/Robert. The few times she was in court she was seated near the Brown family IIRC was there to support them.

Tuxedo Cat said...

@PookieTwo

Thanks for that! I didn't know she had been friends with Nicole.
