Bad news for Kimmy and her modeling prospects.
Will psoriasis put the kibosh on Kim Kardashian’s career? The reality star, whose diagnosis with the potentially disfiguring autoimmune disorder was featured on a recent episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” seems worried that it might.
“My career is doing ad campaigns and swimsuit photo shoots,” she said in the episode. “People don’t understand the pressure on me to look perfect. When I gain a pound, it’s in the headlines. Imagine what the tabloids would do to me if they saw all these spots.”
She was talking about the “red, flaky dots” that had shown up on her legs.
There’s no doubt psoriasis can make life complicated, even for people who don’t get paid to show off their bodies. Nearly 60 percent of people with psoriasis say it presents big problems in their everyday lives, according to the National Psoriasis Foundation. And while the condition is best known as a cause of skin problems, it can also cause arthritis and other problems.
One way to fight psoriasis is to take some time to chill, but it doesn’t look like that’s something Kimmy wants to do. Well, we hope she can make it through and stay healthy. We also hope, for the guys’ sakes, that she can still model and flaunt those cakes!
