Kim K: My Bikini Shot Was Big Middle Finger to Everyone

Kim Kardashian was on Jay Leno’s late-night talk show last night where she revealed how much weight she’s lost post-baby and it proved to be more than enough to slip into what will inevitably become a 2013 Halloween costume you’re sure to see out tonight (a white bikini selfie).

“I got on the scale today and it said that I am 50 lbs down,” the reality TV star revealed. “That made me so excited.”

“I can honestly say it was the greatest challenge of my life,” she said of losing the baby weight after giving birth to daughter North West.

As for that now infamous white bikini shot, Kim confessed it was a big F-You to the world. “I was trying on a bathing suit, and I actually just sent that to my boyfriend, my fiancé, and I was like, ‘Babe, can I post this up? This is my big, like, middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat,'” Kardashian, 33, told Jay Leno.

Kim, who wasn’t getting photographed by paparazzi for months, brought about reports that she had been in hiding because of her weight; she denies that was the case, citing a much-needed break from the limelight.

“I just wanted to have time with her and be with her,” Kim explained. “This was the one time in life that I could just take off and spend time as a family with me, and [Kanye West] and the baby. So we both took a maternity leave.”
