When you’re Kylie and Kendall Jenner, competing with older sisters Khloe and Kim Kardashian for public attention isn’t easy. But the two youngest members of the Jenner-Kardashian family have found their own paths to success. Like many in the age of social media, when it comes to achieving their career dreams, they are convinced it requires sleek physiques, Kylie told E News.
Kylie blames their mom Kris Jenner for putting fattening temptations in their face.
“My mom always has so many sweets and so much candy around the house,” revealed the 17-year-old reality TV star. “Every time someone comes over they’re always like, ‘How are you not majorly obese in this house? There are so many sweets.’ But my mom just loves her sweets.”
However, Kylie has set herself a goal of following in her dad Bruce Jenner’s footsteps by working out. She credits his genes for helping her stay in shape.
“I eat so bad right now,” she confessed. “I eat so many sweets and so much candy but it’s the Bruce Jenner genes. I have to start working out very soon.”
The fashionista may also be planning a new career for herself as a jewelry designer, reported Hollywood Life.
“Kylie’s fashion sense is impeccable,” revealed a source. “She will get into high fashion stuff … but something a lot of people don’t really know, she’s an amazing jewelry designer.”
And that insider made a prediction. “Everybody thought Kendall was going to be the up and coming one but really it’s Kylie. I wouldn’t be surprised if she came out with her own jewelry line.”
However, Kendall’s doing well with her own career aspirations of becoming a top model. She showed off her slender body by going braless for Chanel’s Paris Fashion Week Show, reported E News.
Skin is in at fashion shows, and Kendall stayed true to that theme by showing a hint of her breast as well as her flat tummy. She emphasized that she wants to be taken seriously.
“I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously. People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn’t. What I have has almost worked against me.”
To help achieve that goal of becoming a high fashion supermodel, Kendall has been dieting as the Inquisitr reported. Her weight loss plan consists of raw vegetables and a special detox tea.
“She wants desperately to be taken seriously as a model,” said a source. “And if it means starving herself, she’ll do it.”
And now Kendall’s weight loss detox has influenced her sister Kylie, according to Radar Online. She longs to be as slim as her sister, and Kylie is trying the “teatox” plan herself, said a source.
“She is constantly comparing herself to Kendall, who is like a size 0,” revealed the source.
The plan that they’re trying is known as the Skinny Teatox Detox Diet, and Kendall has admitted to gulping the liquid throughout the day.
“I usually start my day off with a cup of detox tea,” she declared. “I have like 12 cups a day.”
Do you think a still growing young woman who is still in her teens should be consuming detox tea and raw vegetables for nourishment? Does America’s obsession with thinness and the perfect body promote an unhealthy lifestyle?
