Tabloid Publishers Must Think We’re All Dumb

I saw a tabloid the other day that had the most ridiculous cover story I’ve ever seen. The gist was that they were trying to make readers believe that Kim Kardashian is not actually pregnant, it’s just a ruse so that she can get fat. Hah! If only the world was that lucky. I honestly can’t believe they thought anyone would actually buy that (both literally and figuratively). Obviously Kim Kardashian is not just pretending to be pregnant so that she can get fat because a) that’s stupid, and b) no one is able to get fat in such a specific way.

The part that I really don’t understand is why Kim Kardashian supposedly wants to be fat in the first place. That seems very out of character for any member of the Kardashian family. Beyond that, who actually wants to be fat? Very few people. However, if Kim Kardashian really did just want to be fat, I think she could just be fat without having to pretend that she was pregnant.

I just can’t help but think that the writers of this particular tabloid are going to feel very (re: even more) dumb when Kim Kardashian gives birth in a couple months. Because then the whole world will know that it was not in fact just a ruse.

Honestly, I’m a little insulted as a member of the public that they thought we would believe that.
