If you look up the word ‘vain’ in the dictionary, the chances are it will be illustrated by a picture of Kim Kardashian. The 37-year-old reality star, who has built an entire empire from her “self-absorbed” antics, is arguably one of the entertainment industry’s most conceited stars. But, that’s why we are all so obsessed with her.
For some reason, we ‘average’ humans cannot peel our ordinary eyes away from the sight of Kim K’s infamous bulging behind. As much as we try not to be, we can’t help but be captivated by her inflated lips and faux baby doll voice.
Maybe it’s a mild curiosity that means we can’t look away when we see the name Kardashian, or maybe it’s our complete disbelief that someone as fundamentally basic as Kim can possess so much power over the world.
It’s our fascination with her life that means most people will do anything to be a part of her entourage. Literally, anything.
Take Kim’s former personal assistant Stephanie Shepherd for example. As a long-suffering personal servant to the star, Shepherd had to put her personal life on hold whilst she tended to the reality star, who’s worth a reported $175 million.
Despite being present for her wedding to Kanye West and in the aftermath of her Paris robbery, Shepherd and Kardashian parted ways in November 2017 after Kim reportedly grew concerned that her assistant was becoming too much of a celebrity.
Despite the demands of the job, being Kim K’s personal assistant is much less ridiculous than being her ‘booty bufferer’. Yes, you read that right. The mother-of-three requires someone on the set of her photoshoots to attend exclusively to her peachy posterior.
The “pop culture phenomenon”, as she was called by Vogue in 2016, is famously dedicated when it comes to having photos of herself taken – so dedicated, in fact, that it has even been suggested she uses PhotoShop on her Instagram pictures.
That, combined with the fact that her derriere is her most profitable asset, means that having her own ‘booty bufferer’ is hardly surprising.
Her bulbous behind is, after all, what keeps Kim relevant. It’s the main attraction that the paparazzi come to see.
Rumors have suggested that her enormous backside was the work of multiple implants, something Kardashian proved to be false when she comically had her butt X-ray’d on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Her former personal trainer has even come forward to say that her inflated rear is the work of just one move in the gym, in defense of his former client when unflattering photographs of her behind were published online.
Kardashian was deeply upset by the high-resolution images, even going as far as to claim that they were fake, something the photographer denied. After that fateful incident, it appears that the Selfish author learned the importance of always having someone on hand to tend to her butt.
Thus, the role of Kim Kardashian’s ‘Booty Bufferer’ came into play. It’s a job that most people would die to have, but for now, the vacancy appears to be filled. Maybe we could be her ‘Lip Laquerer’ instead? Let us know, Kim!
