On the latest episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” Kim revealed that she had a raging case of
herpes gonorrhea psoriasis (psoriasis, if you don’t know, is a chronic disease of the skin resulting in thick, red patches with flaky, silver-white scales). Feel free to quote me as saying, “Ha ha ha ha ha ha!” The Daily Mail says:
The reality star gets an angry red rash, first on her legs, that soon spreads all over her body.
‘My career is doing ad campaigns and swimsuit photo shoots,’ the 30-year-old cries. ‘People don’t understand the pressure on me to look perfect.’
The hereditary disease was passed down to Kim from her mother Kris Jenner.
‘I got it for the first time when I was exactly your age,’ Kris tells her distraught daughter. ‘I cried myself to sleep for months.’
Kim’s doctor tells her the condition is incurable.
I, for one, am glad for skin diseases like psoriasis. It’s God’s way of marking the unclean so you know to avoid them. Just like freckles and red hair.
