Kim Kardashian simply cannot stay out of the news. The reality star and ex-wife of Kanye West makes a living based on her looks and public persona. Now, a fellow reality TV personality is saying Kim K is faking it.
Shaughna Phillips was a season six cast member of the show Love Island. She recently made accusations against Kardashian via Instagram that accused Kim of using filters to make herself appear more attractive on Keeping Up with The Kardashians.
“I feel like first off I need to start by saying that I am such a stan for anything Kardashian and I have no shame in it. I will continue to buy any and every product they release. I’m a sucker. Hook, line and sinker. BUT, I saw a post yesterday about the Kardashians using a filter on their show and I was like WOT DO U MEAN?”
Phillips noted that Kardashian had dark circles under her eyes in one scene, and then later during the exact same conversation, they are gone. She expressed her disbelief that Snapchat-like filters could be used on television. It really seems to have triggered her.
“I didn’t know that was a thing?! We all know that insta is a filtered fake reality, but I feel like I’ve been hoodwinked! I didn’t know you could do that on a TV show?!
“Well here I am watching KUWTK for the 181193714th day in a row and I see it happen before my eyes! One minute Kim has dark circles under her eyes (very normal) and in the exact same conversation she looks flawless, blended and smudged to the high heavens. Why have I never noticed this before?”
Kim Kardashian has not responded to the accusations. In a world where beauty always comes first and social media image filters are commonly used, it makes sense that they might try and adapt the technology for television. Whether or not Shaughna Phillips has uncovered proof of this is up for debate, but it’s an interesting find.
