Rob Kardashian says he lost 7 lbs in a week: fishing for an endorsement?

Rob Kardashian

I generally consider it a slow news day whenever we’re covering Rob Kardashian, and this case is no exception. Mostly, I wanted to cover these ridiculous photos of Rob with Kris Jenner from Saturday evening while they promoted Rob’s latest sock line in Vegas. Because sock designing is an actual profession or something, and Rob’s line is called “Arthur George by Robert Kardashian” socks. Aren’t these the most hideous socks that you’ve ever seen in your life? They’re much worse than dirty, never washed white socks. Look at how excited Kris looks about these socks. She’ll try to sell anything!

Meanwhile, Rob has been looking to lose that extra poundage he’s been carrying around for awhile. If you’ll remember, he claimed to have gained 40 pounds in 2 months (after his messy breakup with Rita Ora), and he’s apparently trying to lose the weight as quickly as he gained it. Remember though, this is also the guy who unironically likened himself to Steve Prefontaine a few months ago, so it’s no surprise that his delusions run strong. Neverthless, Rob’s been gym tweeting, and he’s telling Us Weekly about it too:

Rob Kardashian is a man with a plan. The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” reality star has been documenting his weight loss efforts on Twitter for the past few weeks, and during his birthday party at 1OAK in Las Vegas March 15, the 26-year-old told Us Weekly about his initial results.

“I lost 5 to 7 [pounds] last week. I’m trying to lose 40,” he revealed. “It’s a little journey, but it’s good. . . I’m like 240 right now, probably 235.” Kardashian added that he hopes to reach his goal weight by July 4.

The sock designer said he packed on the pounds by eating “a lot of great food,” and now the single star is adhering to a low-carb diet. His slimdown motivation? “Beautiful women!” Kardashian admitted.

Kardashian isn’t in this alone, as he’s recruited friends to join him during his twice-daily workouts. “We go to do Runyon Canyon in L.A.,” he explained. “I’ll [exercise with] my own trainer at eight in the morning before all that.”

Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke, who was partnered with Kardashian during the ABC show’s thirteenth season in 2011, has also lent her support. “We’ve started running and doing our own little workout,” Kardashian told Us. “It’s good.”

Yep, you guys were totally correct. This guy must be angling for a weight-loss endorsement of some sort, but I don’t know how he’ll succeed in scoring a contract if he’s losing weight in such an unsustainable manner. Seven pounds in one week can’t be healthy (although he looks slightly slimmer than he did last month), and Rob will never be able to keep up working out twice per day after he loses the weight that he’s looking to ditch. Still, this misguided quest for a corporate endorsement is much more interesting than, you know, sock designing.

Later Saturday evening, Rob managed to ditch Kris and celebrate his 26th birthday at the Mirage. Talk about a douche patrol crowd if there ever was one, right?

    Fun fact: he did celebrate his 26th birthday with Kris. She was there too. Here they are 🙂

    • BB says:

      Rob is an emotional eater and until he gets that under control he will always have weight issues.

  2. Kristen says:

    Useless, pathetic people. His father is rolling in his grave.

  3. lem says:

    if he’s cutting out carbs and alcohol, i can see how he’d lose 7 lbs in a week (it’s all water weight) but he won’t maintain that rate of weight loss for very long.
    however it doesn’t matter how much weight he loses, if he continues to wear leather tshirts and pants he’s always going to look ridiculous. oh and the fact that he’s a kardashian doesn’t help.

  4. paola says:

    What a douche. And his mother is beyond ridicolous.

  5. Shauna says:

    So he maybe lost five pounds. Or seven. And he maybe weighs 240. Or 235. I really don’t understand bragging if you’re completely unsure what you’re bragging about.

  6. Erinn says:

    I’m sorry, but I like those socks. I looove brightly colored socks.

  7. Elceibeno says:

    We can’t blame him for trying to get an endorsement can we? He is silly but he’s a good kid.

    • RocketMerry says:

      Thank goodness I’m not the only one who finds him a silly (and douche-y) good kid.
      He does not seem to be as mean and vapid as his sisters and mother.
      At least that’s the impression; but I’m always very lenient with guys I find attractive (for Lord knows what reason).

  8. sarah says:

    I love the bright funky socks. I can get a ten pack for $5 at the dollar store. Why is he so excited about making socks?! They’re SOCKS.

  9. Apsutter says:

    Big f***ing deal. He’s a young man in his twenties…he should be able to lose weight fairly easy and quick unless he had a thyroid condition. Call me when your in your late 40’s and dropping weight like that, then I’d be surprised.

  10. JenD says:

    Two things: what the hell are those white things around Kris’ ankles? They look like home monitoring devices. And, Rob could dress up with more than just a t-shirt for his sock line. I mean, I know they’re just socks, but if they’re supposed to be high end, don’t you think he’d try to look a little more high end himself?

  11. Susie Q says:

    Won’t posing with the fat white boy wearing garbage bags damage the other dudes street cred? Is he shilling his socks at his birthday party?

  12. Bianca says:

    I don’t know who any of these people are, but that last picture is hilarious. They think they’re so cool, don’t they?

  13. bokaki says:

    the guy in the last pic with the pink pants is pretty hot! yummy

  14. Dee Cee says:

    If only mom’s ankle straps were monitoring devices issued by the police department while she is sequestered and awaiting trial for shameless hustling cheap, wasteful sleaze and destroying her family and offending the world..

  15. Alexandra says:

    Pffff should we give him a medal or something for this very important accomplishment?

  16. Dawn says:

    Of course he is fishing for an endorsement, that what this family does. And I hope that no one in the weight loss industry falls for this. He is young and will lose weight quickly just by cutting out carbs and booze and doing light exercise. The KrapTrashians are no longer a family but a band of gypsies looking to run a scam on anyone and everyone they can. Yuk the ugliness just oozes out of all of their pores.

    • Inari says:

      Well, that didn’t take long… Disliking this bunch of money-grubbing twits doesn’t bother me (obviously), but that Roma thing that keeps popping up regularly is really unnecessary and downright offensive. YMMV, of course.

      Now I’ll spend a moment hating myself for commenting on a Kardashian post. 🙁

  17. Syko says:

    Men lose weight much more easily than women anyway. I used to go to Weight Watchers and would go weigh in and find that my hard work all week had resulted in a giant 1/4 pound loss. Then there’d be some damn man in the meeting…”Well, I had a bad week because we were on a cruise and I just couldn’t stay away from the buffets, so I only lost 4 pounds this week.” Bah, humbug!

    I don’t care if Rob K. loses 70 pounds, he’s still disgusting (but nowhere near as disgusting as his mother).

  18. judyjudy says:

    He lost seven pounds by draining the boil on his b-hole.

    I could totally design socks. Who do I need to call to make it happen?

  19. Dani says:

    Looks like he took a page out of Kim’s book with that awful leather outfit. I remember one point in my life when I found Rob attractive…and then I put my glasses on.

  20. Sara says:

    He should NOT be wearing tapered ankle pants. No just no.

  21. Alexandra Bananarama says:

    When you have a male metabolism and you’re over 200 lbs an under 6 feet you can lose 10 pounds in a week by 1 trip to the bathroom and drinking more water. The weight as he carries it and at with how quickly he packed it on i’m guessing it was all booze related calories. And those empty cals are the easiest to lose. You just stop drinking.
    And maybe he’s only designing socks because his sisters are marketing everything else…

  22. Quinn says:

    Oh my GOD, those pants!!!!! Hilarious!!!!’

  23. truthful says:

    this clown is almost 30 yrs old??

    his mama looks tore down drunk as usual.

  24. Missy says:

    He seems really lazy to me. His hustle game is weak compared to mama kris and her 3 prized pigs. And out of all the crap this family designs or endorses, his mother only tosses him a measly sock line?

  25. valleymiss says:

    That’s funny that the article specifically mentioned Runyon Canyon. My friend was just telling me last week that she was there hiking with her husband and she got the hill and bent down to tie her shoe when she was aware of all this commotion around her. She looked up to see a camera crew filming Khloe and Rob hiking. Khloe came up right next to her and bent down and was like, “Agghhh I’m gonna throw up, you guys!” (She didn’t.) That story made me like Khloe a little more.

  26. Bridget says:

    These pictures totally made my day! I mean, PMK looks like she should be hawking those socks in a kiosk in the middle of the mall. Rob has no game.

  27. skuddles says:

    Rob, forget about the socks and the endorsement deals – just let someone pee on you and you’ll have a great “career” in no time!

  28. Carolyn says:

    What? Kris sees the writing on the wall for the girls and now she’s trotting out her son? How can she let her girls be filmed sniffing their smells?

    “Arthur George by Rob Kardashian”. Sock designer? He draws a few patterns in texta on an A4 pad and someone else makes it in a factory in China? Pretty much sums it up, really. Was this suggested to him as a joke and he didn’t see the humour and ran with it? Excuse me whilst I laugh hysterically.

  29. Gemini08 says:

    He’s a guy- they can lose weight fast like this and it’s fine. Men lose weight easier than us anyway. And he was a decent size before he ate his emotions and gained all the weight so I think he will be able to maintain the weight loss even if he isn’t working out twice a day.

  30. dcypher1 says:

    Kris looks insane in these pics. She should really be in a looney bin.

  31. Yelly says:

    Awww, guys have weight loss problems too? Am I the only one who thinks he has potential to be good looking? And as bat-ish crazy as she is Pimp Kris looks very svelte in those photos I have to say.
