Kendall Jenner Confesses “I’m Trying To Gain Weight But My Body Won’t” To Harper’s Bazaar
While Kim Kardashian continues to make headlines due to the weight gain caused by her first child with rapper Kanye West, her little sister is making news for the exact opposite reason.
Signed to Wilhelmina Models since 2010, 17-year-old Kendall Jenner has used her statuesque 5-foot-10 frame to land gigs modeling everything from bikinis for White Sands Swimwear to prom dresses for Sherri Hill, but in a recent interview for the April 2013 cover of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed that she longs to have the curves of her sisters.
“I’m constantly criticized for being too skinny,” Kendall explained. “I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen. What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat. It’s not a nice feeling.”
Whenever Kendall experiences that not so “nice feeling,” her older sisters are never too far away. “I go to them for different things,” says Kendall. “Khloe is like my second mom, so whenever my little sister [Kylie] and I are fighting or we’re fighting with our parents, we call Khloe. Kourtney is very realistic with things. She will tell you the cold, hard truth, even if it will make you cry, so whatever you’re dealing with, if you want to talk to her, she’ll be very realistic.”
But, for the best guidance, Kendall calls on Kim. “She’s been through a lot,” Kendall reveals, “so we can go to Kim with anything and she’ll have literally the best advice.”
Despite having her sisters by her side, Kendall is ready to make her own path. “I used to be so shy,” she tells Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. “I used to never talk, just sit back and do my thing. I am still pretty shy, but I’ve gotten much better because I’m always on set for photo shoots and I’m always filming with my family. I’m trying my best with what I want to do, which is modeling. I think I’m on my own career path and I don’t really care what other people have to say about me being in the spotlight of my sisters. I’m just doing my own thing.”
