Who knew a selfie could cause so much controversy? Kim Zolciak displayed her thigh gap on Instagram, and fans aren’t so sure if everything’s as it seems. Does she have a real gap or it she just perfectly posed?
Kim Zolciak, 37, has an incredible body, and she’s not afraid to show it off! But she inspired ire with her latest selfie, posted Wednesday, August 19 to Instagram, which displayed her thigh gap. It also featured a caption denying that she wasn’t angling her body a certain way to make it appear wider. Her 1.4 million followers weren’t buying it, though.
“My feisty followers want me to take my pics closer up so you guys can see the detail!! How’s this? And listen I turn my feet in so you can see my damn shoe not to have a thigh gap cause I have that anyway!! #NotPregnantSoDontTryIt,” she captioned the pic. Kim’s caption was a reference to her previous selfie, which featured the mother of six posing with her knees turned in, her feet pointed together, which many thought looked like she was trying to form a thigh gap where there wasn’t one.
In this photo, the Don’t be Tardy star poses in the same manner — knees pulled in, toes pointed together — and it does look like she’s posing like this deliberately. But Kim swears it’s to flaunt her Jimmy Choos. We’ll take her word for it! It’s interesting that people are upset now about her thigh gap; Kim strikes this pose in almost every selfie she posts.
Her followers were brutal in their critiques, ranging from straight up insulting her to expressing concern. “Dear lord. Again with the pigeon toe pose? You look like clumsy child. Hot momma…work on your sexy pose rather then worrying about your thigh gap,” @socalflipflop wrote. “You best not brag about your thigh gap…your daughters are listening and watching and you don’t want eating disorders to follow…be careful what u say!” @mcnickyo said.
Andy Cohen Confronts Kim Zolciak — You’ve Had A Nose Job & Your Lips Done
Andy Cohen, 47, definitely has the same train of thought as Kim’s Instagram followers. When Kim appeared on Watch What Happens Live‘s August 16 episode, he held nothing back while confronting Kim with his plastic surgery theories. Specifically: he thought she got her nose shaved down, and her lips plumped. Maybe be a little gentler than attacking her on live TV, Andy?
Kim held her composure and replied that she’s always been honest about plastic surgery, and wouldn’t start lying now. Good for you, Kim! HollywoodLifers, do you think Kim was posing to make a thigh gap? Tell us in the comments and take our poll!
