I'm embarrassed to admit this, but here goes: I follow Kim Kardashian on Instagram. I used to lie to myself and say it was to save time because whatever she posted instantly became a lead story on Usmagazine.com. (Sue me, I'm a pop culture junkie). But really, I think I just hate-follow her. I know that makes me kind of a jerk, but we all do it in one way or another. Maybe you don't hate-follow a celebrity on Twitter or Instagram, but I bet you hate-watch "The Bachelor" or some other guilty pleasure TV show and spend the entire time screaming at the television. Bottom line: Ridiculous people make great entertainment. (Evidence? Kimmy K. and all reality TV.)
But recently, I've actually caught myself feeling a little sympathetic for Kayne West's baby mama. After a year of strictly selfies (self portraits in Insta-speak), Kim has recently taken to uploading old bikini and skin-tight dress pictures, at mass volume, and not just on "Throwback Thursday." Granted, Kim's booty and boobage pictures are nothing new (they are her bread and butter, obviously). But what's different about these pictures is that they aren't recent. Up until now most of Kim's pictures chronicled her daily life -- you know, a lingerie shoot here, a girls' night out there.
Dare I say the mom-to-be is having a very pregnant moment? Seems to me that Kim might be feeling a little insecure about her changing body and wants to relive her glory days. Either that or she's a smart businesswoman and knows this is a great way to keep up her sex symbol status while she's sporting a baby bump.
Either way, I think this is the most humanizing moment Kim's had since she ugly cried on national television. I mean, haven't you looked back at old pictures, especially when you're feeling a little ... pregnant?
