Take a minute if you will and click over to PopEater to see the new nearly naked pregnancy portraits of Kim Zolciak from The Real Housewives of Atlanta and her finance Kroy Biermann that appear in Life & Style Magazine. Then come back, and let's discuss.
Are you reeling? I have seen plenty of awkward pregnancy pictures, but Zolciak's might just be the worst of the bunch ever. They are so bizarre, I can't stop looking at them. At first I thought they were perhaps a joke, but apparently they're not an intentional one. The look on her face; the position of his head that looks like he's about to dive into her crotch; it's all just so AWFUL.
Also, these are for a professional magazine, so she had resources and supposed professionals at her disposal to avoid making her pictures look like some of the others floating about. Instead, they just look worse.
I totally blame Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon for these and for the many more that are to come.
If you recall, Cannon and Carey also took some really atrocious couple pregnancy pictures for OK! magazine before the birth of their twins.
I KNEW this would happen. I knew everyone from Hollywood to Harper, Kansas, would start jumping on this trend. Zolciak's are only the beginning, and they're going to keep getting worse.
I get wanting to document this magical, incredible time in one's life, but I don't get doing it in such an awful awkward way and then putting it on the pages of magazines where unsuspecting eyes will be forever scarred by these visions. Some clothes would be a good start, some good taste even better.
Stop the trend now, people.
