She may never be on the cover of Vogue, but there's hundreds of other magazines that love putting her front and center!
Kim Kardashian covers the new issue of Us Weekly, and even though she already gave us a peek at her bikini body with a sexy selfie earlier this fall, here's another look at it!
It's been six months since Kim gave birth to daughter North West, and despite being slammed for gaining 70 pounds during her pregnancy, Kim is back in fine form these days. "Kim feels confident again," a source tells the magazine. "She worked really hard and is so motivated to stay fit." Now if someone would just find her a decent stylist!
In other news, Kim is defending the fact that a scant 10% of the proceeds from her recent charity auction are going to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, and she took to her blog to clear the air.
- "I feel compelled to speak about something that is in my head and my heart. Over the years, I’ve had to grow a thick skin. Being in the public eye, there are times I feel like I get criticized for any and everything I do. I’m used to it now. I just choose not to feed into negativity or become consumed by it.
The problem comes in when I get attacked for giving and trying to help people. My dad always taught me the importance of giving back. I don’t publicize everything I do to help charities and people all over the world. I do it because I want to. I do it because my dad taught me to. I do it because it’s the right thing to do. So for people to attack me for giving 10% of my eBay auction sales to the people of the Philippines, that hurts.
I do eBay auctions monthly and change the charity or church from time to time. I give 10% of all my earnings to charities, not just these eBay auctions. This month it’s for the people of the Philippines, last month was Life Change Community Church.
In regards to these eBay auctions, when the eBay numbers get broken down, the auction management agency that posts for me gets a percentage for all of their hard work, then eBay listing fees, end of auction fees, eBay Store fees, Paypal fees, etc., all add up to about half of the sale. Then I give 10% to a charity.
Truth is how the # is broken down, is neither here nor there. The people of the Philippines need all of our help, no matter how big or small.
Over the last 5+ years, I have listed thousands of items on eBay Giving Works for various causes. I will continue to do what is in my heart and am happy to know many others have enjoyed purchasing from me, as they too are giving with me.
Giving comes from the heart. We all need to be reminded of this as we celebrate the holiday season this year."
Wait, so she's still just donating 10% from the eBay auction right?
