[Blind Gossip] Many years ago, Barbra Streisand created a problem for herself by raising a fuss about something to which nobody else was paying attention.
In 2003, thousands of photographs were taken by the California Coastal Records Project to document erosion across the California coastline.
Among those photos was one of Barbra Streisand’s house from the air.
In this photo, her house is the big one in the middle. Her house is very close to the edge of those eroding cliffs.
Now, nobody even knew that was Barbra Streisand’s house… until she made a fuss about it!
Streisand felt that her privacy had been invaded and demanded that they remove the photo from the project.
Her attempts to have the photo removed became a news story that went viral. People who had never even thought about Barbra Streisand’s house were suddenly consumed with looking at photos of it across multiple news sites!
Thus, The Streisand Effect is when attempts to censor or quash information or images actually causes it to become more widespread.
There is a member of a TV family whose appearance has changed dramatically over the years. Furthermore, she spends a lot of time and energy manipulating current photos of herself to the point where she becomes almost unrecognizable.
This isn’t her, but here is an example of what we are talking about.
This is the kind of photo manipulation that goes way beyond erasing a zit or eliminating a few errant strands of hair.
It’s not just real people doing this. Celebrities do it, too.
Here’s a photo that Madonna just released of herself.
Does anyone think that Madonna actually looks like that?
Back to our TV Girl.
Our TV Girl claims that she hasn’t had plastic surgery and she doesn’t care what people think of her photos because she is comfortable with who she is and what she looks like.
All of that is a lie.
She cares a lot.
A “real” photo of her got out recently. She and her legal team demanded that the photo be removed.
As soon as they did that, we received copies of the photo from several different sources. We suspect that it will quickly spread across the internet.
The weird thing? The photo is nothing controversial. She has her clothes on. It’s a normal photo of a person taken outside. We think she looks fine in it! It’s her real face and body. She looks like an average person.
That’s the problem.
She doesn’t want you to see her as an average person. She needs you to see the airbrushed/photoshopped/manipulated versions of herself that sometimes don’t even look like her!
In the meantime, she will continue to preach to you about loving yourself and accepting your body and being body positive… while she freaks out and her legal team threatens people who have a photo of what she really looks like right now.
Oh, the hypocrisy!
Oh, The Streisand Effect!

[Optional] Do you think her behavior is normal?
TV Girl: Khloe Kardashian
Q: When a Kardashian woman faces controversy, how does she respond?
A: She takes off her clothes!
Let’s start from the beginning.
Khloe Kardashian’s grandmother, MJ, took a photo of Khloe wearing a bikini. You can see the photo here.
Khloe’s assistant posted the photo on social media.
Unlike all of Khloe’s other photos, this photo was not airbrushed and manipulated. Oh, the horror!
So Khloe’s legal team went after everyone who had shared the photo to take it down off the Internet.
Unedited Khloé Kardashian swimsuit photo allegedly being scrubbed from the internet: ‘Just really sad’
A public relations team is allegedly trying to scrub an unedited Khloé Kardashian photo from the internet after it was apparently “accidentally posted” to social media over the weekend.
The photo in question shows Khloé smiling and posing in a bikini by the pool. It’s nothing out of the ordinary for a member of the family, except for the fact that the picture appears to be unfiltered and unedited.
Now, several people who posted the photo claim that they were asked to take it down under legal threat from the Kardashian family’s PR camp, which released a statement saying that while the image was “beautiful,” it was unauthorized.
“The color edited photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant,” Tracy Romulus, chief marketing officer for Kim Kardashian’s KKW Brands, told Page Six. “Khloé looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down.”
Usually, the Kardashians, who are public figures, allow fans to use their Instagram uploads for reposts or edits. But in this case, because the family allegedly didn’t want the photo online, its PR team claimed copyright infringement as a reason to ask people to take it down.
Khloe’s team actually had people’s Twitter accounts shut down over sharing the photo that Khloe’s own assistant had posted on Instagram!
Of course, this extreme action created The Streisand Effect. By trying to ban the photo… Khloe’s team caused the photo to spread even more widely!
Why shut down the photo?
If you think this was really about copyright infringement, think again. This was about maintaining Khloe’s fake image.
There is the way Khloe looks. And then there is the way Khloe wants you to think she looks.
Here is an example:
Here is another example.
Khloe posted the image on the right to her own Instagram account.
Unfortunately for Khloe, an actual image from that day was discovered.
Then there was a video that Khloe posted last year.
Michael Jackson lives!
Of course, Khloe Kardashian is not the only person in her family to present an image that departs from reality.
Here’s a photo of Kim Kardashian doing a photo shoot in a vintage Dior bikini.
Wow. She has the most amazing and perfect hourglass figure, doesn’t she?
Here are some unedited photos of Kim from that day.
You get the point.
By the way, we would not have even thought of posting those photos of Kim today if Khloe hadn’t made such a fuss about her own unedited bikini pic.
Back to Khloe.
After the unauthorized photo of Khloe caused a stir, Khloe did what Kardashians do.
She took off all of her clothes, posed in front of a mirror, and whined about how hard her life is.
She’s a victim, yo!
Khloe Kardashian says judgment over her body is ‘almost unbearable’
Khloé Kardashian shared with her social media followers “unretouched and unfiltered” videos of her body along with a lengthy note on body positivity after an unauthorized bikini picture was posted online.
In one clip, the 36-year-old reality television star is seen wearing only underwear as she films herself in front of a mirror.
“In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule and judgment my entire life to be perfect and to meet other’s standards of how I should look has been too much to bear,” she wrote.
Please. Khloe Kardashian has tens of millions of dollars in the bank and could step away from social media anytime.
But she won’t.
Greed keeps her going. Khloe’s official registered corporation names are KhloMoney and KhloMoney Productions.
Did you know that the tagline for Miss Airbrushed Khloe’s clothing line is “Representing Body Acceptance”?
We’re not kidding.
This from someone who clearly has such body issues that she has had her own body sculpted by plastic surgery, manipulates every photo of herself into some unrecognizable alter-ego, makes millions of dollars off of it, and then whines about being a victim, all while claiming she is “Representing Body Acceptance.”
What a bizarre, hypocritical person!
Khloe Kardashian doesn’t even accept her own body, and by continuing to behave the way she does, she is part of the problem, not part of the solution.
We don’t know if Khloe is mentally ill, but if she is, perhaps she should get help for her mental health issues from some experts.
How about these two?
Congratulations tofor being first with the correct response!
Everything the Kardashians do is planned…including this. No photos are “accidentally” released into the world.
Thank you for a WONDERFUL explanation with visual aids. It enraged me to see how she was crying “poor me” and jumping around to prove she is not average. What a mental case!
Thanks for not letting her get away with this!!!
I love Blind Gossip for being so honest and being real!
Ugly on the inside. No amount of digital or surgical enhancement can change that.
I pity their children who will likely turn out like Paris Jackson
I saw Khloe’s photo. She looks pretty, young, and fresh faced. IMO much prettier and cuter than any make-up and photoshopped pics. Her body is great, just the tiny bikini isn’t doing her (or almost anyone) any favours. Again, just my opinion. But she never stood a chance to develop a halfways healthy sense of self esteem.
Of course Khloe, doesn’t it just get exhausting for them to stay made up constantly?
I tend to think it’s not her fault, how can you have self esteem when your own mother tells everybody you need a nose job when you’re just a child.
That being said I saw the picture and she looks very pretty – her face without makeup is way prettier than in the pictures she posts on her social media.
There is nothing shameful about her body either. It’s obviously very lippo-ed but it looks good.
Just to be different, I’m going to say Cher. The other day, there was a picture of her sans makeup, and she actually looked just fine.
Of course it is Khloe K . I remember on one of those Judge shows where plaintiff who was suing friend said that she is jealous of me because she is plump and I am not . Judge corrected the body shamer & said “I don’t know why you say that , she looks fine to me . “
I hope it was Judge Marilyn Milian from the People’s Court. I love her no-nonsense attitude!
No, not normal at all. Girl, just be authentic!
TV Girl: Khloe Kardashian
[Optional] NOTHING about that family is normal anymore. Khloe is probably reacting to years’ worth of comments about her appearance and people saying she has a different dad.
googled the picture, it’s fine. but her face is actually her face, and doesn’t look anything like that phototuned creature that is half Denise Richards and half Kardashian
Normal? Nope she’s a mess. Always felt like Godzilla around her petite sisters, she’s plastic surgeried herself into some kind of Human Barbie clone. No self esteem, so she has to control all photos of herself no matter how she looks in them & dates guys who cheat on her left & right. I kinda feel bad for her. All that money & never happy.
Khloé Kardashian. She’s so insecure about her looks, it’s sad.
Khloe Kardashian…..I do not think she knows what she really looks like.
Gotta be Khloe Kardashian because of all the plastic surgery she’s had. I thought she was pretty before. Her behavior is normal for someone with a “momager” and thinner, supposedly prettier sisters.
Khloe K – you don’t get a flat stomach and a huge bum by taking pictures of working out. They’re all liars; do people really believe their pictures are what they truly look like in person?!
Khloe lol. It’s all over the internet, and what’s even funnier is they have dug up all the unphotoshopped photos of Kim and Kortney and plastered those on there as well.
Optional: Not normal but normal for that family
This has to be Chloe Kardashian- she was the one sister I could actually tolerate but since she’s totally morphed into a different person with her plastic surgery- her can’t stand any of them!
It’s so sad that she feel into the plastic surgery wormhole that sucked in her whole family! Wreaks of desperation but live your life! It has zero effect on the masses!
All those kids will look nothing like their parents!
She looks good in the pic!
This is Khloe Kardashian and the “MJ Photo.” She looks better in the photo than she does in the overprocessed ones that she puts out. The hilarious thing is they are claiming that it has been photoshopped. Are they serious?
changing my guess to kloe kardashian!
Khloe! I followed this from the beginning, she actually looks super cute on the picture (I took some screenshots for later haha)
Then all the IG accounts started receiving messages from Kardashian lawyers and PR, * was DMing people to take the picture down and now the accounts “can’t legally talk about it” anymore…
With this family I am not even sure if it was really an “accident” or just another stunt so everyone is writing about it…
No, her behavior is not normal because she really looks good on the unairbrushed photo. She looks more youthful. I really feel sorry for her because she must have body dismorphia or something like that, probably due to all the remarks she had to go through when she was younger.
Khloé, if you read me, here’s your chance to outshine your sisters! Go for the more natural look! You look so good!
No doubt it’s Khloe Kardashian
This is khloe Kardashian, I’ve seen the original photo and I think she looks great! But she looks a million miles away from the swimsuit photos that she posted the day before… So very heavy use of filters & Photoshop along with flattering posing and light. All unnecessary because she looks fantastic just as she is. Shocking to see how heavily edited everything truly is!
is this goopy paltrow?? there was a normal pic of her with no makeup or anything
This is Khloe Kardashian. Part of me feels so bad for her because people have always referred to her as UGLY. I personally do not think she was and I don’t think she needs all that plastic surgery. Just sad.
As to Madonna, I live in NYC and saw her about 3 years ago getting out of a limo near Broadway. When somebody said “that’s Madonna” I almost didn’t believe them. She looked so old, much older than she is – like someone in their 80s. Her body was in tip top shape, well toned.
Khloe Kardashian who has body dysmorphia and is always preaching and annoying the plebs with cheesy quotes.
KHLOE KARDASHIAN … and she is beautiful just as she is!
TV Girl: Khloe Kardashian.
Optional: Not normal. I admired her for being the most normal one in the family. So sad to watch her become plastic like the rest of them.

phat girl says
K trash. Khloe in a bikini. We know already Khloe, We know.
KHLOE KHLOE KHLOE
I saw the photo and she looks ok. However, she looks nothing like the “public” persona she and her family trot out daily. How unfortunate that she can’t accept her looks and her body, especially since she’s a role model for her daughter and other impressionable young girls. None of their behavior is normal compared to the rest of us, but it’s totally normal for them. Not sure who they think they’re fooling.
It’s khloé k
Thing is, she does look good in the photo. No obvious surgery scars and her face does not resemble King Michael’s. Millions of women would be happy to look like she does in this photo – with or without surgical assistance.
She must have serious body dysmorphia to get so upset, she ought to go and get professional help, or else her life will be miserable despite her improved looks and all her money.
Most of the members of that family have body dysmorphia issues. She should get counseling as she could be spending the inordinate time she spends on her looks with her daughter or being more productive in life. She will also accidentally impact her daughter with her behavior and her daughter’s mind will be warped. She also has an opportunity as having been the more realistic sister on TV in the past to own the real picture and turn herself around while being accepted.
Khloe Kardashian? She is heavily filtered in those Nurtec commercials and is still giving off Michael Jackson nose job vibes. I can only imagine what she looks like in the morning when she first wakes up. Unrecognizable and not in a good way!
Khloe Kardashian – there’s a picture of her in her bikini being published everywhere right now. She looks very different to her usual filtered/photoshopped pictures – however looks much better in my opinion! She just looks like a normal girl.
The Big D says
No one in that families behavior is normal.
Not normal, she has massive self esteem problems. Not surprisingly in that family.
Girls got massive issues.
TV Girl: Khloe Kardashian
Her behavior is normal amongst her circles, it’s not normal in the real world
Oh, Khloe. That weird filter you keep using is NOT a good look.
No, her behavior is not normal, and how is this going to be for their children when they grow up?
Ive often wondered how the Kardashians kids feel about not resembling their parents. They never will either unless they go under the knife – given how “surgeons knife happy” their mums are I wouldn’t be surprised if they haven’t already got work done :/
Assistant posted unfiltered unedited photo
It’s now BLOWN UP
I think she looks quite good without all the fake filters – She would be better off staying natural now! That’s ONE MAJOR accomplishment she has on her sisters ;()
Oh and no these actions are not the actions of a normal person.
One of the K klan.. I’d say Khloe or Kylie…
TV Girl: Khloe *
No it’s not normal. Her need to control the press is now obsessive. But that’s all she has, I guess…?
Her behavior is normal for her family and she seems to be quite insecure with how she looks compared to the other plastic dolls they’ve created themselves to be.
Saw that someone posted an unedited photo of her on the KUWTK and apparently the Kardashians were trying to get rid of it.
TV Girl: Khloe Kardashian
Perfect girls don’t get migraines do they, Khloe ? NOTHING about the Kardashians is real. Such a sad life to live.
Saw the photo and that’s what she should be putting up instead of all the others. I would’ve given her respect if she left it out there rather than trying to erase it off the internet
Just a guess- Khloe Kardashian?
Khloe *. Who cares about these rubber mattresses.
They are so up themselves that their behaviour isn’t surprising anymore.
Good old * herself.
No plastic surgery? She’s probably had more nose jobs than Michael Jackson
esmerelda b says
I think we are all painfully aware that this is Khloe “new face a day” Kardashian.
It must be exhausting worrying about your appearance like that. Who really cares in the end? Are you living for yourself or the rest of the world?
I thin that as the odd one out in that family she’s overcompensated to catch up with the others. Always hearing that you are the ugly sister must’ve pushed her towards it. You have to embrace YOURSELF though. Not plastic. They don’t look normal…
That family & being on tv made her incredibly insecure. I mean, its normal for her. Not me so much, but her.
Khloe Kardashian. I saw the photo last night and just saw she’s trying to get it off the internet. She looked fine in it. Maybe not the manipulated airbrushed pics that are normally shared, but it was refreshing to see a normal photo of her. Real bodies and skin aren’t part of the Kardashian-Jenner brand, though. This behavior is normal for them, but to the rest of us an obsession with looking perfect all the time is very unhealthy.
Kloe * and her “oh dont look at that photo” op. she looks better in that photo than any of the other alien looks she usually has. meh it’s def not normal behavior but it is normal publicity harvesting. boring.
Optional: for her, probably. For regular folks like me, not so much. I get not wanting photos out that you don’t like, but that’s your job. That’s what you look like. I couldnt imagine being so wrapped up in presenting such a facade to the public. I’m envious of her money, but not of her life!
Two comments. 1) Why give yourself that absurd nickname? 2) She looks (as BG noted) normal and beautiful in the image. C’mon. What the heck is the problem?
Oh yeah. “Money.”
Khloe? I don’t get it, she was the one that criticized her sisters for being so unnatural and now her pictures look highly enhanced. She should put a comforter over her every time she goes out because she does look average and plump. (Nothing wrong with that, I am like that)
Oh Lawdy…could this be Gwyneth Paltrow? She’s the only “preacher” I can think of right now.
Pitiful Khloe K
Her behavior is not normal but this is what you get when your whole life a lie created by your mother.
Khloe Kardashian. Sad since she looks perfectly normal without all the airbrushing and filters.
Either Kim or Khloe Kardash
I don’t know how ‘normal’ they look seeing they’re so full of plastic surgery.
They’re all a bunch of fake narcissists. I don’t know why people think she’s the down to earth likeable one, they’re all exactly the same.
obviously Khloe Kardashian…
normal? not for me, but for those lunatics, it’s to be expected!
High Steppa says
Khloe K. Her behavior is normal for a family that has made a great deal of money from media manipulation.
Kim Kardashian or one of the Kardashian/Jenners.
Outside of showbiz, it’s abnormal behavior but, I suppose she is protecting her “brand”.
Khloe Kardashian for sure
No idea but, it should be interesting to find out.
It’s Khloe Kardashian, and I wish I looked as good as she does in the photo. You could bounce a quarter off her stomach. Don’t know why she’d be pissed.
I feel this way too! It’s by bemusing (and troublesome) to ney that her photo is being widely criticized as average. Plastic surgery and photo tweaking has really skewed our perception so much that this gorgeous woman with a healthy, fit body is–average?
I agree. Her body is fantastic and her fresh, makeup-free face is beautiful. Best I have ever seen her look! Instead of pulling every copy off the Internet, she should pay people to put it out there for her.
The heavily insecure Khloe Kardashian. None of her IG photos even remotely resemble her anymore.
Megs and her rotting teeth?
Ugh. She used to be the one I liked, coz she didn’t give a f… Definitely not normal, hasn’t been since Lamar.
Oh Khloe K.
Optnl: Not for regular people but yes for people in Hollywood.
Khloe Kardashian. Yes this is normal. IF you have created an empire based on lies, you have to continue the sham. The funny thing about this is the “concern for privacy” when the family business was built on a self-leaked sex tape.
Khloe is as fake as the plastic inside her.
TV Girl: Khloe Kardashian
No, her behavior is either a sign of deep insecurity or a narcissistic personality.
This has to be Khloe Kardashian
Diamond Girl says
Khloe Kardashian’s recent pictures look absolutely nothing like she used to look.
It’s Khole in her leopard print bikini. Poor thing looks like a totally average person in that photo. We can’t have that, can we?
Poor self esteem
