Rob Kardashian would like a moment of your time to announce that he has decided to lose some weight. The twenty-six-year old Rob (not to be confused with his father Robert Kardashian, who represented O.J. Simpson/misrepresented Lady Justice in 1995) has visibly gained some poundage in the past few years, resulting in many jokes at the poor (rich) lad’s expense.
A former Dancing with the Stars celebrity, Rob Kardashian commented on his world-altering decision with Us Weekly on May 25th at the unveiling of his new sock collection at Neiman Marcus in Las Vegas. The young Kardashian Kapitalist says that he started off his maiden voyage of weight loss in March at 235 lbs. “I still have to lose like 40 to 50 pounds believe it or not,” Kardashian told Us Weekly at the event.” Six months I should be there.”
Along with cutting back on drinking but still acting totally fly, Rob Kardashian has been hitting the gym with a personal trainer of his brother-in-law/eugenics experiment Lamar Odom.
In a recent episode of the sci-fi hit Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kardashian blamed some of his weight gain on his break up with British singer Rita Ora. While Ora was not a Cheetah Girl, I can assure you that Rob Kardashian did in fact date a Cheetah Girl.
Rob Kardashian is constantly the punch line the jokes of the Kardashian Klan, which is kind of like being the least favorite wart on your rear end. But perhaps this is a step in the right direction for the wayward Kardashian Komrade. Hopefully for Rob Kardashian’s ego’s sake, we won’t start wearing flip-flops all of the time and socks will still be in demand. Then again, if Rob fails and gains all of the weight back there’s always Celebrity Fit Club. (That’s still a thing, right?)
