Rob Kardashian gets no ‘sympathy’ from Kim: ‘Get up & do something about it’


Here’s an old-school photo of Kim and Rob Kardashian, circa 2009. Kim’s face looks completely different than it does now. She never smiles anymore. Botox.

We all know what happened to Rob. I do feel bad for the guy even though I know he’s not a nice person at all. The only remotely humbling thing about him is his sudden weight gain. If it weren’t for that first-world tragedy, Rob would still be tweeting misogynistic stuff about his exes. Rob’s been pretty tame these days because he’s been reasssuring his followers, “I’m aware that I’m fat.” We’ve also heard stories about how Kim constantly blames Rob for ruining the family name by being overweight. Rob also fled the Kimye wedding after Kim allegedly bashed his weight.

In the latest episode of KUWTK, Kim bashes Rob (behind his back during a luxurious Thailand vacay) for being overweight. Kim admits that Khloe worries about Rob, but Kim says she has no “sympathy” for him at all. Kim says that Rob needs to suck it up and fix the problem. I’m ashamed of watching this episode on the treadmill. E! plays those reruns constantly. KUWTK pervades all aspects of semi-civilized existence. Here are the deets:

Tough love! Kim Kardashian said on the July 20 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that she doesn’t have sympathy for her brother Rob Kardashian, who has been battling depression and weight gain over the past several months.

After Rob, 27, failed to show up at the airport while the family was en route to Thailand, sister Khloe Kardashian was so worried she almost didn’t board the plane herself. Kim, however, took a different stance towards her struggling sibling.

“We’ve all been here to offer him help and he won’t take it, so I don’t have sympathy,” Kanye West’s wife, 33, said to the family at the breakfast table while on their posh vacation. “I think I’m just more of the tough love kind of person,” she later went on to tell the camera. “My personality is like, ‘All right, you complain, you don’t like it, get up and do something about it.'”

Khloe, however, tried to defend her brother, saying, “Rob has deeper issues than just weight,” adding he took her split from husband Lamar Odom “hard.”

Guuurl. Everyone is aware of the rumors about Kim fixing her own weight concerns with lipo. She plumps some areas and has others deflated. To Kim, this is the healthy way to get over being fat. I respect Rob more than Kim for not fixing his “problem” with some easy-peasy surgery. Rob might not be as glamorous and famous as Kim, but at least he isn’t fake. He’s an a-hole for sure, but what you see is what you get.

I’m also not surprised to hear that Rob took Khloe’s breakup from Lamar even harder than she did. Khloe has easily moved on with shady French Montana, but where is Rob supposed to find a new bro? No one in the Kardhashian family ever considers the dudes. Except for Scott Disick, who knows how to play the game.

FYI, Bossip says that Rob accidentally tweeted a racy photo of Kylie Jennerfor the men.” Then he claimed to be hacked. Huh.

    Valentino looks like he smelled something putrid sitting next to Kim.

    Every time I see Rob all I notice are his teeny, tiny hands, like that Burger King commercial from a few years back with tiny hands man.

  2. NewWester says:

    Kim was such a beautiful woman before she gave her soul to Lucifer’s Homegirl. I have a feeling the downfall of this family will be Rob writing a tell all book. He will start to push back in a huge way.
    As for Valentino, I am speechless

    • Rupi says:


    • Nicolette says:

      I think he’s going to blow the lid off their machine. It’s like an unsustainable bubble about to burst. But he’d better run and hide because hell hath no fury like a Pimp Mama Kris scorned!

  3. Elisabeth says:

    Kim is quite the soulless creature

  4. GiGi says:

    I struggle with empathy (apparentlly just like Kim) but even I can see that it’s a gross simplification to tell Rob just to work out. Generally people who gain weight this rapidly have much deeper issues to sort out. I’m guessing he’s dealing with some heavy stuff. Too bad his family is so awful. He needs to find a new support network.

    • lauren says:

      I totally agree with you! I´am also really struggling with empathy toward this family but I can´t help myself and feel sorry for Rob.
      I guess a lot of people see Robs weight gain as laziness and it plays into the image they are having of him (underachiever, not as successful, etc) but in my opinion he has deeper issues than just the weight gain or being compared to his sisters and he needs to adress them. To me it seems like ,that he lost his way in life and one bad day became one week, one bad week became one month, one month became 3 years. Once he realized it, he was so deep into it that he can´t come out of this hole all by himself. It was really sad to see that Kris and Kim got so excited about Kims Vogue cover but they could not care less about their own son / brother. Sure, it can be frustrating if you offer help and get pushed away but be a little bit more patient.
      I just hope he gets the help he needs and moves away from his family.
      But it was really funny to see how Kim was portraying herself as a problem fixer / go getter type of personality. Wuahahaha, yes Kim, the scalpel is your solution to everything.

      • Moffa says:

        That Vogue cover scene just proves how much this family, especially Kris and Kim, put on materialistic things. The vapidness is astounding. Real world issues hold no weight when Kim is on the cover of Vogue! And they were so offended by Khloe and Kourtney’s lack of enthusiasm. They have such a backwards mentality about life.

  5. MissBB says:

    Kim’s mouth looks painful in that last picture (sitting next to Valentino), or is it the weird colour lipstick that makes it look like there’s something wrong? Can she still close her mouth?

    • Godwina says:

      I will admit that her girls look insane amazing in that chartreuse dress, though. Fake or no.

  6. Andrea says:

    KIM FOR WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO YOURSELF? Even her last nose was miles better than this one…I know this has been discussed before but it really is an eyesore.

    What was she going for? A more caucasian nose? She used to be so pretty…

  7. MrsBPitt says:

    If Rob is fighting depression, he could be on medication, and sometimes those meds can make you gain weight rapidly! Yes, I believe that if you have a problem with yourself, you should work on it, but if there are emotional and mental problems, its not always so easy. I must admit that I have a soft spot for Rob after watching him on Dancing With The Stars. When he started the show, you could tell he did not want to be there. But as his dancing got better,and the judges praised his improvements, you could see his confidence grow, and his pride in accomplishing these dances. It was like he had never received a complement before…which he probably hadn’t, living with that family….I just don’t think he has the emotional fortitude to be in that killer shark family!

    • MonicaQ says:

      He probably hadn’t his entire life. It’s kind of tragic even though he is a colossal dick stool.

    • Wren says:

      What’s the theory, that generally a person can give only what they have received? Think about what he has received, or rather NOT received, from his family his whole life. Not that this excuses him being an ass, he’s an adult and therefore responsible for himself.

      My mother adored him on DWTS and I caught a few of those episodes with her. He seemed so genuinely happy and actually, well, nice. Makes you wonder what he would have been like if he had gotten real love and support his whole life instead seemingly being the forgotten child.

    • wolfpup says:

      How can she speak so contemptuously about her own brother? Publically?!!! All this family seems to care about is fame. I would be so hurt if one of my family members talked about my problems to the community, knowing that it would become print, so the whole city would be informed as well. How could one keep their head up?

      I have no respect for these people. Common decency is almost nonexistent.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        Kim is an unfeeling bitch, she always has been. As if the family reputation wasn’t ruined by her porn tape, sham wedding and ass of lies, no, of course not, it’s Rob’s weight gain that is dragging them down.

  8. Bob says:

    Wasn’t it stated in Kim’s divorce papers from her first husband that she got lipo at his insistence?

  9. eliza says:

    I find it sad that once great designers like Valentino, sell out just like everyone else for publicity. Associating with a Kardashian is not going up on the prestige and social scale. The actual women who can afford Valentino are not impressed by the fact that Kim Kardashian wears it I assure you of that.

    • Mia V. says:

      If I was insane rich and capable to afford couture and saw Kim sitting front row on a couture show, I would immediately stopping buying that brand. She’s so tacky, sooooo tacky that she can wear Queen Elizabeth’s crown and make it look cheap.

  10. Dhavynia says:

    I bet she wouldn’t be saying the same if she was the one who looked a whale and he was telling her to suck it up…oh wait she kinda does look like one with that a** of hers

    So easy to say that when your losing weight method is going under the knife

    Besides, I wouldn’t talk if I was her because she doesn’t look that good IMO

  11. Dawn says:

    Of course Kim doesn’t care when it doesn’t directly involve her. And of course this is being scripted for their show and if Kim really believed in tough love she would certainly get her husband some help for his mental illness. But she doesn’t do that either. Kim cares only about Kim and what Kim receives for being Kim. As her game indicates if the person doesn’t move you up turn your back and move on until you find one who does. End of her story. No amount of surgeries can remove the ugly from this stunted woman who still thinks she is the queen of mean in high school. Yuk.

    • QQ says:

      im saying!… How are you gonna get sympathy from a soulless robot covered in a meatsuit? (Her and the little one…Kourtney? have THE flattest affects Ive ever seen on normal people ever, like when I’ve watched the show Ive wondered what if anything could be medically wrong)

      • The New Classic says:

        Read your comment too fast and thought you said “flattest a$$es”. I almost had to scroll up to make sure I was still reading about Kardasians before I reread what you wrote *correctly*.

      • Sea Dragon says:

        I did the same thing except I read: soulless robot covered in meatsauce. It happened five minutes ago and I’m still laughing!

  12. Hautie says:


    When you see an image from 2009 of Kim… it makes it painfully obvious how much fat she has put in her ass and hips. This is not a weight gain issue. This is her paying to have fat shoved into her… now lumpy ass. I can not believe she ever thought this was a good idea.

    Sadly, Kim has done a procedure that there is no return from.

    You can always have a dumb set of too big, boob implants, removed. But there is no way of getting rid of all that fat she had put in her ass.

    And the longer it is in there. The more it shifts downward in an uneven manner. And none of that is going to end in a positive way for her. Now Khloe had the same thing done to her ass. These girls really do not look at what the long term effects to their bodies, will be.

    • Zipster says:

      Can’t she just get lipo on her ass?

      • Hautie says:


        It will make it a horrible mess to attempt to lipo it out. It is why it has gotten so big now. When the injected fat started to shift, the only way to smooth it out was to attempt to add more fat to those pits.

        And getting lipo (for your own nature grown fat) does not end with you being smooth looking either. There is months of wearing girdles to attempt to get your skin to smooth out.

        Look at Tara Reid for a great example of what lipo looks like when done on a stomach. It is a brutal procedure. And can have some tragic looking skin issues that are not going away.

        I have never understood why people believe lipo is some quick answer to fat removal. The only time I seen it work miracles. Is when it was done to get rid of fat under the chin (above the neck area). Where Mother Nature likes to put fat in odd places, that you can not lose it from dieting.

    • joy says:

      Forget her booty, look how she ruined that face! She was so pretty.

    • claire says:

      I really cringe what it will look like in the future when she’s in her 40s or so. Heck, even in the next 5 years. I can’t even fathom how it’s comfortable. It looks like weird saggy dead weight. I know people naturally have large bottoms but this looks like it would feel foreign, not like a part of her, due to the way she got it. I wonder if she’s going to develop odd foot problems, because this has got to be affecting the way she walks, right?

  13. Tiffany27 says:

    He’s not the nicest person in the world, but none of them are. But they seem to genuinely treat him like sh*t and I don’t get why?

    • MonicaQ says:

      Because they wouldn’t be able to make money off of his sex tape.

    • FingerBinger says:

      The Kardashians are about money. Rob’s socks never made any money. He didn’t become the Sock King so he got left out in the cold.

      • Nicolette says:

        Exactly, Kris measures her children’s worthiness by how much cash they bring in.

  14. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    “I think I’m just more of the tough love kind of person,”

    I think you’re just a selfish, self-centered bitch.

  15. MediaMaven says:

    PMK has programmed her to believe that if they are not pimping themselves out and bringing in fistfuls of money, they are worthless and dragging down the family name. I would totally pay list price for the Kindle edition of a that douchebag Rob’s tell-all on this entire tarry stool of a family.

  16. snowflake says:

    she did nothing on her vacation but take selfies for kanye. everyone else was enjoying all the stuff, she just kept taking pictures of herself against different backgrounds for kanye. it makes me upset to see these rich people go on exotic vacations, and how they act, they might as well be at home. if i was there, i would be enjoying the experience, not spending the time taking pictures against different backgrounds because I’m so self-absorbed. kim is the most self-absorbed person I’ve ever seen in my life and a shitty role model for the young girls who look up to her.

  17. Faye says:

    I know the K’s are all about money and nothing else, but using your brother’s struggles for a show storyline? How soulless and amoral of a person can you be?

    • FingerBinger says:

      They use everything for a story-line. Khloe’s infertility, Khloe and Lamar’s marriage, Bruce’s botched plastic surgery. Very few things are off limits to these people.

      • word says:

        Funny they never have any of Kim’s real problems on the show. She hides it all and acts as if her life is perfect. That show of their’s runs on family drama about everyone but Kim. That’s really not fair and the rest of them should complain.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Fake marriage for ratings at the expense of the groom. Bruce may or may not be transitioning, Lamar is a drug addict, Scott is a drunk, Rob is a depressed fatty. All for ratings. Soulless and amoral is much too kind, actively evil is much closer to the truth.

  18. feebee says:

    Yes, Rob. Get up and DO SOMETHING!!!

    Or lie down and have it done to you. That works also.

  19. Gypsy says:

    That’s the problem in this society, everybody wants a pill to fix their problems.
    It has been shown that exercise releases natural endorphins and dopamine into the bloodstream.
    Rob needs to get up from the computer keyboard and “do something”, too much cry baby-ing in America.
    I am fat —It not because I sit all day on my fat-a$$, IT BECAUSE i’M DEPRESSED.
    Doctor keeps telling me I’m sick because I am a fat slob ——I just need a new doctor, that all.

    Kim should drop him into some desert location with enough supplies to walk the 200 miles back and when he gets back he’ll be not depressed and in terrific shape.
    Is Exercise a Treatment for Clinical Depression?
    Research has shown that exercise is an effective but often underused treatment for mild to moderate depression.

    • Mingy says:

      I hear you. For me the hardest part is getting off my ass. Once I’m in it, I feel great. When I’m angry or depressed, it’s the only thing that helps. Excess mental energy has to go somewhere too…I’m not sure if I’m explaining myself correctly..pms brain fog is in effect :/

    • John says:

      I agree. I actually watch the show and they’ve all offered Rob help. There was an episode in which Kim and Rob made a workout schedule so they can both lose weight. (I believe it was after Kim had given birth) Anyway on the day of the workout Rob didn’t show up. Rob has been dealing with this issue for a while now and this are the types of stunts he pulls when they to help him. Based on what I’ve seen on the show i can’t fault any of the family members for not having any more sympathy. They’ve taken him to the doctor, therapist, trainers and none of it seems to work because he acts as if his gone change and try it, but a couple of days into it he quits. How do you fix that? How do you help someone who just isn’t willing to help himself? And who’s responsibility is it? Kim’s? . There are some people bashing Kim for her comments but i would like to know what they would recommend that the family do? Now i’m not simply defending Kim here. I know alot of you don’t like Kim but i genuinely want to know if there’s away to help someone in such a situation.

      • Dawn says:

        But that was for the show and is not reality of how they really live. And besides he has been living in Florida for some time now or he was. Who knows what really goes on between those people. I do know that Kim’s first husband has said many times that he has never known a family who competes and backstabs each other the way they do. But again who can say for sure.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        You can’t go by the BS they stage and script for their show.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        Here’s something that won’t help, broadcasting a person’s problems and failings. It is NOT helpful at all to him to air his issues on TV, if they cared about him, they wouldn’t do it. It’s true they can’t compel him to get help but they can stop making the situation worse for him.

      • John says:

        Dawn and Bob: I believe some segments of the shows are staged but not scripted. It seems unnecessary for the show to do that given the content they have to work with. The show and their lives have intertwined so much that now the staged moments (e.g family vacations, events,…) have become the reality of their lives. What you see, is what you get. The reality matches the show. There’s nothing you can now point to in the show and say that’s not who they’re, that’s not how they live their life, or that didn’t happen. The newest episode is about 5 months old based on when the events took place so they haven’t addressed Rob moving to Florida yet. Anyway point is that you can go by what is in the show because there’s no difference between the show and reality. Unless you’re trying to say that they’re acting like their helping Rob on the show but in real life they couldn’t care less, but the latest episode disputes that assumption.

      • John says:

        “Here’s something that won’t help, broadcasting a person’s problems and failings. It is NOT helpful at all to him to air his issues on TV, if they cared about him, they wouldn’t do it. It’s true they can’t compel him to get help but they can stop making the situation worse for him. “-Bob Loblaw
        Bob i agree with this to a degree. Yes, it doesn’t help to air his problems and failings, but this is another hole that Rob has dug for himself. At this point in their lives i think they all understand what they signed for. I don’t think they even have much of a say on what gets aired or not, but everything must be filmed.
        The only way they can make the situation worse for him would be to stop offering help. Which where i disagree with Kim, but i also understand where she’s coming from.

    • Nicolette says:

      You’re absolutely right about exercise and it’s effects on a person’s mood, and about the pill popping situation. It seems there’ s a pill for everything now, a magic cure all in a bottle. The commercials for them are something else. Take this you’ll feel great, then it’s followed by a laundry list of possible side effects including death, then it’s back to take it, it’s great!

  20. kibbles says:

    There are people who are naturally rotund. It is genetic and it is harder to deal with as a person grows older and his metabolism slows down with age (along with other emotional factors we are not privy to). Kim is also naturally rotund but has had the help of liposuction and implants to shape her current figure. She works out a lot too but we all know it isn’t exercise alone that has gotten her this body. She should not diss anyone because all of that plastic surgery and lipo will not hold up her entire life. Her face is already destroyed by plastic surgery. I can’t imagine how horrible she will look when she enters middle age. So I believe Rob may have the last laugh when Kim ends up looking like Joan Rivers with breast implants and a lumpy booty in a few decades.

    • snowflake says:

      no, she doesn’t work out. i’m overweight, esp in my stomach. i work out about 3 times a week and I have some definition in my abs and when i bend my arm, you can see muscle along with the fat. kim has no muscle tone or definition on any part of her body. i do not believe she works out. she is never seen without her makeup being perfect, there is no way in hell she works out.

      • Maggs says:

        Agree Snowflake, NO WAY does Kim workout like she tries to portray. She has no muscle tone or definition at ALL. I think she uses blush or contour stuff to try to shade her stomach, legs, arms to make it look like she has muscle tone. Who the hell wears full make-up to the gym and full make-up out? Everyone I know comes out a red sweaty mess. She’s full of shit. or fillers. or both.

    • Caz says:

      My brother is an excellent “no-nonsense” personal trainer. He said Kim’s body is due to surgery, there’s no muscle tone or definition and all her limbs look soft & pudgy. In comparison Jessica Simpson worked hard for that body. She looks great.

      Is it possible to have minus zero good thoughts about a person?. the Kardashians have truly jumped the shark and are on the downward spiral to oblivion. It’s a very slow news day when Rob stories are the focus of the day’s PR plant. I see through you PMK.

      I am truly glad I am not a Kardashian. Or a Jenner.

  21. Nedsdag says:

    If she truly believed in “tough love,” she would’ve insisted that the man she married get professional help for his mental issues.

    • Haolebunny says:

      THIS ^

    • lucy says:

      Absolutely! The entire family needs mental healthcare.

      Of course, they are all so ill that none of them realizes it.

      And no, one cannot help someone who will not help him/herself.

  22. Wallamalooo says:

    In a world where being fat is a worse sin than being a whore – okay then, Kim :S Jesus (or sorry, Yeezus).
    And I don’t think Khloe is ‘moving on easily’ from Lamar – I have a theory that she’s with that French Montana dude because she doesn’t feel anything for him – I’m the same, if my heart gets broken I don’t move on and I don’t give it away again easily. Just a theory and I’ve spent waaaaaaay too much time thinking about it 😛

  23. kri says:

    Wow. I have seen barracuda that were more family-oriented. For anyone to expect anything but vitriol and melting plastic vapor from this band of strigoi amazes me. She wants Rob to lose weight for the family name??! B#tch, there is no saving that sh-t. I could rescue the Titanic or at least get Leo into Spanx and a shower easier than this fam could be saved. Maybe Kim will get lipo on her brain so she can lose another 16 oz.?

  24. Pail says:

    Kim is really vain then

  25. skeksis says:

    Thank you for acknowledging the Rob is a terrible person too–it seems like he always gets a free pass, like he’s the “good Kardashian” when he’s a misogynist and abusive person.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      They’re all awful, I don’t understand their appeal. I watched their show when it first started, I was naive, and they were such ugly people, so selfish, vain, and mean, just despicable, I had to stop watching. E! relentlessly promotes and airs the show. I have stopped watching the network all together.

  26. AB says:

    Kim’s a bitch, but I do have less sympathy for Rob than those in similar positions but with less means. He can see a great therapist, hire a trainer, hire a chef or have his meals prepared or delivered….basically there is no barrier to him trying to fix his issues.
