Kim Kardashian to debut post-pregnancy weight loss on Kris Jenner’s talk show

Kim Kardashian is ready to show off … her post-baby body. The reality star is reportedly planning to debut her new look on mom Kris Jenner's afternoon gab-fest, "Kris." "She wants to show up like Heidi Klum and have everyone marvel at how fast she lost the weight," a source tells Us Weekly, adding that Kardashian, 32, has already lost 20 of the 50 pounds she gained during her pregnancy. "She won't leave the house until she's thinner," the source added. After delivering her baby prematurely June 15, Kardashian has been staying with Jenner, 57, as she rests. The new mom was told to take it easy by doctors for at least five weeks, which apparently has Kim "frustrated that she can't exercise yet," the insider said. Recently, Kardashian's trainer Tracy Anderson said the new mom was eager to get her body back, but was in no rush. "From our talks during her pregnancy, I thought she was going to be really concerned [about her weight] once the baby was out, but she's just not," Anderson said. "She's in baby heaven. She's excited to get started, but she's really calm about it all." The celebrity trainer revealed that Kardashian's routine to get her body back would start off with working out four days and week and then gradually turn into five or six. "Kim is super motivated. She's all in," Anderson said. "Pregnancy is actually an opportunity for women to look better than ever. And [Kim] will." Join the Conversation: Continue Reading

Cover with less-newsy Kourtney Kardashian, instead of pregnant Kim Kardashian, angers Us Weekly’s staff

Us Weekly hits stands nationally Friday with a huge Kardashian exclusive — too bad it’s not the one you want to read about. Kourtney Kardashian, not newly pregnant Kim, graces the cover, gushing about her 44-pound weight loss since giving birth to baby Penelope five months ago. Kinda makes the celeb mag look dated. PHOTOS: HOLLYWOOD MOMS BEFORE AND AFTER GIVING BIRTH The weekly gossip magazines all missed printing a story about Kanye’s announcement on Sunday at his Atlantic City concert, and can blame the New Year’s holiday schedule, along with matriarch Kris Jenner, for not tipping them off about Kim. Because presses were closed on Tuesday, Us, which goes to print every Tuesday, closed the latest issue on Friday and went to print Monday. Now editors are fuming about the bad luck, because Kourtney was paid $200,000 for the exclusive photo shoot and interview about her post-baby diet. “Us paid for the Kardashian exclusive; they are livid now. After all the press they’ve given the girls, they’re furious,” says an Us insider. “Clearly Kris knew about this. She negotiated Kourtney’s deal with them. They’ve given the family millions over the years for exclusives; they expected at least the first tip.” In addition to infuriating editors, Kris feels like she lost a potential $500,000 paycheck that Kim could have gotten for her bun-in-the-oven announcement if Kanye West hadn’t instructed the crowd to “make some noise for my baby mama.” But another magazine higher-up tells [email protected] that Kim’s payday would have been much lower — more like $100,000. “Sometimes the baby announcement sells more than the baby pics,” says the Us insider. “Kris runs that family like a machine. She wanted the control over when and where they make their money. The contract states that they have Kourtney exclusively for two weeks, but they’re more interested Continue Reading

Kim's not the only Kardashian who's had trouble with their recent curves. Younger brother Rob Kardashian has been open about his battle to lose weight. And it looks like his hard work has paid off.

Though Kardashian began his weight loss program with twice-daily workouts, he's since slightly altered his course. "That got [to be]too much," Kardashian continued. "I'm kind of doing my own thing with Lamar [Odom]'s trainer. He's on salary since he was 19 years old, so he works for us. I've been spending time with them. Kardashian has been counting his calories and particularly trying to cut back on alcohol. "I'm not really drinking out here in Vegas. I've been here since Wednesday, and I leave Monday. That's way too long," he said. "But I'm trying to get in a healthy direction." Join the Conversation: Continue Reading

Kardashian sisters slapped with $5 million lawsuit over QuickTrim weight-loss products

Customers are suing the Kardashian sisters, claiming a weight-loss product they endorsed slimmed their wallets — and little else. A class-action lawsuit filed in the Southern District of New York is claiming the reality star sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe made “unsubstantiated, false and misleading claims” in ads, interviews and tweets about the efficacy of QuickTrim.KEEPING UP WITH KIM KARDASHIAN Attorneys for the four plaintiffs, based in New York, California and Florida, slam the Kardashians as well as product-maker Windmill Health Products for making bogus claims that QuickTrim “curbs cravings,” “promotes weight loss” and “burns calories.” “The FDA has in fact determined that ‘there are inadequate data to establish the general recognition of the safety and effectiveness’ of caffeine for the specified use of weight control,” the lawsuit states. The suit also takes issue with advertising for the product, which encourages customers to use the entire QuickTrim product range, from pills to “cleanses,” for increased effectiveness without any evidence supporting that conclusion. The sisters have been identified with the QuickTrim brand since 2009, carefully name-dropping the the products during television and magazine interviews and telling their fans how they use the brand to lose weight and stay thin. Khloe and Kim Kardashian in an ad for QuickTrim. “Just did an amazing pilates class with @KimKardashian,” Khloe tweeted to her fans in 2010. “That and a little QuickTrim and my bikini bod will be ready in no time.” The lawsuit alleges that the sisters “personify the product” and are therefore liable for damages. The Kardashian stamp of approval earned QuickTrim $45 million in sales. The reality stars have endorsed more than a few questionable products. In 2010, the prepaid Kardashian Kard was yanked from shelves Continue Reading
