Kim Kardashian Struggles With Anxiety & Body Dysmorphia After Bikini Photos Go Viral on 'KUWTK'

Kim Kardashian revealed that she doesn’t always have such a tough skin when dealing with public scrutiny on Sunday night’s episode (October 15) of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

During the episode the 36-year-old reality star grappled with the media attention centering around a set of Mexico paparazzi photos in a bikini that caused her to experience “body dysphoria.”

“When will they stop with this story? You definitely get a thick skin once you have been through it a lot, but pictures just keep coming up every day and they just won’t let it go. I know I can handle anything and everything, and if I can’t handle it…who can?” she said during the episode.

“I just am in the house so much that I get so freaked out if anyone like, looks at me,” she said. “[It’s a] full phobia — I freak out about everything. Why do I subject myself to being seen? Why don’t I just stay at home?”

Kim‘s sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, came up with a game plan of wiping all social media apps from Kim‘s phone temporarily, which she agreed to.

“It consumes you and it affects you,” Kourtney said. “You just need to live your life. Why do you need to see this nonsense?”

Khloe suggested that the photos sparked bad memories of Kim‘s Paris robbery: “It seems like the Mexico pictures are just never-ending and it’s just making her think about Paris again, [when she] was mocked and made fun of. It’s one of the few times she’s been seen back and out, and this is how she gets treated. It’s not fair and it’s not cool.”

Also on the episode, Khloe revealed one of her secret go-to beauty tools for banishing cellulite, the FasciaBlaster. The device was invented to comb through the fascia and loosen the tightness and restriction.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs on Sundays on E!.

    Oh please! Her body dysmorphia started long ago when she began altering every inch of her face and body. Reinvented! Like Frankenstein. Nothing is remotely natural. Nowadays you just have to have a lot of money to buy yourself a totally plastic shell. And you can’t ever really go back.

  • Lili

    She is such a narcissist. She is addicted to the attention but she wants praises and not the shame maybe she shouldn’t have alter herself that much then people would understand her anxiety about body shaming. But not when she did this to herself.

  • calafeast

    Girthy bitch with huge insecurities.
    The only reason why you are famous is b/c of your fat naked body, you flaunting it, then calling tabloids or using your trashy SM to capitalize on your flesh.
    She and her whole family are so repulsive.

  • Casey C

    boo f-ing hoo

  • Kim

    She loves to be photographed and craves attention. So she was photographed in a so-called non flattering way and all of the sudden she suffers from body dysmorphia?? That is an insult to those who really suffer from this. No, what really happened is that Kim was not in control of this ‘photoshoot’. If she doesn’t want these sort of photos to be taken when on holiday then she needs to start being less of a ‘reality’ star. This whole whining is just another attention seeking thing of her. Oh poor Kim :( Whatever.

    Kim does not have “Body Dysmorphia “.

    She actually did badly mutilate her body and now is a botched and disfigured mess.

    Her butt will be a lumpy mess full of painful abscesses and infections for the rest of her life.

  • krtmom

    Well then…Just stay in the house!!!! Better for all of us!

  • Charles Wallace

    U r hawt! Meet me by the dumpster behind Wendys at 9:00.

  • Darlene Kuncytes Author

    Is she serious?!?!? She CONSTANTLY posts pics of herself. And you KNOW she photoshops and then when a REAL pic of her comes out she freaks! Then STAY OUT OF THE LIMELIGHT honey! Go raise your family! UGH

  • ImOpining

    If she’s claiming that the photos were fake why didn’t she bare her bum like Kourtney did?

  • Linda Goldfine

    I am so proud to say that I have never watched that show. There’s something wrong with that family. Although I do wish I had a little bit of their money. Just a little!

  • D.r. Supe

    That’s what happens when someone builds whole feeling of self worth on shallow physical looks. Don’t feel sorry for her at all, did she think she’d have the body from her home made porn video forever?

  • suzybel

    You put yourself out there on display for all to see, you’re going to get comments good and bad, try keeping your clothes on for a change

  • Sandy Lindquist

    you say you “can handle anything” then handle the truth for once! Stop wearing clothes that actually SHOW THE CELLULITE! I love your show because I love to watch how each of you talk out of both sides of your mouths. You aren’t all that and a bag of chips Miss Kim so just get used to being like the rest of us and get over yourself.

  • SaraJ

    I actually love Kim K’s personality and think she’s a very nice person but agree with you there. Why did she contort her butt so badly? Maybe it’s time to take the implants out.

  • SaraJ

    To be fair it was never a porn tape, it was a sex tape she made in a relationship – something many people do. Her greasy a** boyfriend distributed it and she’s made the most of it business wise. Can’t fault Kim for that.
