Chrissy Teigen ‘frustrated’ with Khloe Kardashian’s leaked bikini briefs because she should be ‘proud’
Chrissy Teigen is struggling to divide her feelings about Khloé Kardashian’s raw bikini photo that leaked earlier this month.
The 35-year-old model and wife of John Legend shared her thoughts on the inadvertent post with her boyfriend while chatting with Andy Cohen on Tuesday Watch What Happens Live.
While she supported Khloé’s desire to control which photos of herself are released, she also wished the reality TV star could learn to accept and love her body.
Mixed Feelings: Chrissy Teigen, 35, was at odds between body positivity and leading by example when Andy Cohen asked about Khloé Kardashian’s leaked bikini photo on Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday
Chrissy admitted she was in conflict over the kerfuffle over the raw photo, which showed Khloé’s enviable figure in a leopard print bikini by her mother Kris Jenner’s poolside at her Palm Springs vacation home.
“ Honestly, I went into it like a million different directions and I ended up talking about it in therapy, strangely enough, ” she admitted, which she attributed to her “ physical insecurity issues ” and the way celebrities have contributed to the image of ‘what a real human body looks like’.
She added: “You get frustrated because I look at Khloé and I thought, ‘Of course you are so beautiful, you are so strong.”
‘The changes she’s made to her body she’s so proud of and everyone is so proud of. You want someone in every light to be like, “F *** yeah, this is my body,” she continued.
Astonishing: ‘You get frustrated because I look at Khloé and I thought,’ Of course you are so beautiful, you are so strong, ‘she said; Seen Khloé in her raw photo from earlier this month
On the other hand, but her desire for body acceptance was tempered by wanting Khloé and other women to control the stories surrounding their bodies
Nuance: ‘If she didn’t want that photo to come out, she didn’t want that photo to come out. And that’s fine too, ‘she said, adding,’ there could be two truths’
But her desire for body acceptance was tempered by wanting Khloé and other women to control the stories surrounding their bodies.
“If she didn’t want that picture to come out, then she didn’t want that picture to come out. And that’s fine too, ”she said, adding,“ there could be two truths. ‘
Chrissy said many social media users view the issue in black and white terms and don’t understand that “someone doesn’t want this photo” but “can also be proud of that photo.”
The Chrissy’s Court star added that if she were in the same boat as Khloé, she would “ want people to know that this is a strong, powerful photo of myself and that I’m proud of it. ”
“I’m willing to go through these bulls *** and show my body in any way I can so that other people feel better about theirs,” she added.
Set an example: ‘I’m willing to go through these bulls scared and show my body in any way I can so other people feel better about theirs,’ she added
Living Free: Chrissy regularly shows herself untouched and makeup free in hardly any clothes at home. Fittingly, she started selling robes on her Cravings website
Chrissy has already walked the walk, as she regularly shares raw videos of herself lounging around the house to her Instagram stories.
She is often fine with minimal makeup looks and sometimes sticks with a bathrobe or less while relaxing.
Fittingly, the runway star added a line of her favorite robes when she reopened her Cravings website store in late February.
Flaunting: Khloe posed topless in the bathroom mirror showing off her raw body, stating that the clip was not photoshopped after her raw snap leaked
Khloé initially posted her raw photo to Instagram earlier this month, but she quickly deleted it because she prefers to edit her photos before sharing them publicly.
To prove she was still proud of her body, she returned with a video filmed in her bathroom to highlight her sculpted physique.
‘PS Yes, I did a live to show you this isn’t photoshopped,’ she captioned it.
“Hey guys, this is me and my body, not retouched and unfiltered …” she wrote in an attached text message.
In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule and judgment all my life to be perfect and live up to other people’s standards of how I should look has been too hard to bear. “Khloe is the fat sister.” “Khloe is the ugly sister.” “Her dad doesn’t have to be her real dad because she looks so different.” “The only way she could have lost that weight must have been surgery.” Should I continue?
Traumatized: She shared years of criticism of her performance on social media and that she was called ‘the ugly sister’ among the Kardashian-Jenners
Not Changing: She defended the use of filters and edits as nothing more than applying makeup or wearing high heels, and she was defiant to continue editing her photos
‘Oh but who cares how she feels because she grew up in a life full of privileges. She’s on a reality show too, so she signed up for it. Of course I am not asking for sympathy, but I am asking for recognition as a person.
She went on, lamenting how she had been conditioned by years of people who criticized her photos and thought she was ‘not beautiful enough’.
But she defended the use of filters and edits as nothing more than putting on makeup or wearing high heels, and she was defiant to continue editing her photos.
