Kim Kardashian Rips Tight Skirt Before Ellen Degeneres Appearance

Kim Kardashian apparently hasn’t had enough drama for one week. After enduring a racist verbal attack by an 18-year-old man as she walked into a Beverly Hills office building, and having her fiancé Kanye West face a police investigation for assaulting the man, she experienced the ultimate nightmare Thursday afternoon.

As she was about to appear on The Ellen Degeneres Show, E! Online reported, the form-fitting skirt she was planning to wear on the air suffered a “wardrobe malfunction.”

“OMG my dress for Ellen just broke!!! I have to leave in 5mins…I need help! Should I wear this???” the famously curvy reality TV star posted on her Instagram account, asking her 12.3 million followers to pitch in with their views on the viability of her outfit.

To be fair, the Instagram posting does not actually show the tear or other malfunction of the skin-tight skirt. However, from the photo it is easy to see how the garment may have torn.

Unsurprisingly, she chose yet another figure-hugging skirt, seemingly chosen to accentuate the already hard-to-miss Kim Kardashian feminine features.

Moments later, the Kim Kardashian Instagram account featured another picture of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star in her new ensemble, with the message, “‘Ok found my look! Thank God! Off to the taping #phew #thedrama #anxiety'”

During her recent pregnancy, Kim Kardashian’s weight ballooned to nearly 200 pounds, but she recently told Britain’s Look Magazine that she has since lost 50 pounds through, she says, the Atkins low-carbohydrate diet and exercise.

“I was gaining weight because I was pregnant and it was really hard to read all these stories and hear all these nasty things,” said said, quoted by the Telegraph newspaper. “I would go out and there would be photos of me saying I’m 500 pounds.”

In fact, according to the web site Healthy Celeb, Kim Kardashian weighs in at an estimated 145 pounds on her compact 5’3″ frame.
