Kim Kardashian’s bikini palooza! Sports Illustrated cover girl shares sneak peek
Kim Kardashian gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at her Sports Illustrated cover shoot on the ninth episode of The Kardashians.
The 41-year-old reality star revealed in last week’s episode that she was taking her custom-built private jet to the Dominican Republic for her SI shoot, which she also combined with a SKIMS campaign shoot.

“Usually after a shoot I go to In-N-Out or get an ice cream or something, but now I have a new tradition where I just eat Dibs before a shoot,” Kim says with a laugh.

The editorial story is like a modern take on swimwear and she is the epitome of a modern woman. She’s a boss, she’s a sweetheart, she’s a mother, she’s a friend. She works really hard,” Day says.
Kim walks by in a robe and tells the camera she’s “exhausted, but we’re taking the pictures and that’s all that matters.”
