Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kim Takes on More Magazine Covers
We've already seen Kim Kardashian's provocative poses for Playboy, and this time, she makes a couple more for the May 2008 issue of Australian men's magazine, Ralph.  While she doesn't appear on the cover, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star appears on a four-page spread which features her wearing mostly black lingerie.  She also shed some light on her so-called career move, A.K.A. posing for Playboy, which led her to land a couple more magazine covers and finally, a role in an upcoming comedy film.

“My mum actually pushed me to do it!” Kim told Ralph Magazine.  “I think she's living vicariously through me a little bit.”

It seems that their mother, Kris Jenner isn't only a mom on the go, but also a wild child herself.  Pushing her daughter to appear on Playboy isn't really the American Dream, now is it?  Nonetheless, Kim still sees her mother as a guiding light in her life, pushing her to the spotlight.  Thanks to mommy Kris, her status of amateur porn star has now turned into reality celebrity and the junk in her trunk (and bumpers as well?) has now become a magazine cover favorite.

Despite this, Kim recalls that she had tough younger years when it came to her developing breasts.

“I would cry about it,” Kim said about her expanding chest.  “I swear, I would say my prayers at night hoping that I would stop developing.”

Her big breasts doesn't seem to be a problem today, as Kim enjoys flaunting her cleavage, if not her breasts in a magazine cover or sex tape, or whatever she thinks of at the moment.  Moreover, Kim admits that her health is of utmost importance to her.  For Kim, skinny isn't a trend she'd want to follow, and she proves this in her magazine cover for the June 2008 issue of Fitness RX, in which she talks about not wanting to be a “Skinny Bitch,” and how she trains to keep her voluptuous curves.

Of course, when you're desperate, you can also opt for the most common Hollywood trend—surgical weight loss.  Apparently, even Kim Kardashian cannot escape this trend.  Recently, Kim and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney visited the American Laser Centers in Santa Monica, California to receive treatments for laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation, and VelaShape cellulite reduction and body shaping treatments.  Kim previously confessed that she does have some cellulite tucked somewhere in her thighs and backside, and decided that it was probably the right time to get rid of those stubborn excess baggage after former BFF Paris Hilton called her backside “cottage cheese inside a trash bag.”

Catch Kim and the rest of the gang on Keeping Up with the Kardashians this Sunday at 10pm on E!
