[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!

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!
