Kendall Jenner: “Skinny” is an Insult, Too
Kardashian women are known to have generous hips, but not every member of the family is as voluptuous as Kim. Kendall Jenner, the half-sister of Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé, this week graced the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, showing off the athletic body she inherited from her father, Olympic decathlete and gold medal-winner Bruce Jenner.
According to a Daily Mail report, the young model and reality TV star told the magazine that she is “constantly criticized for being too skinny.” She goes as far as to say that she is “trying to gain weight,” but that her body “won’t let it happen.”

Jenner began appearing on the reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians in 2007 and began her modeling career at age 14. She just celebrated her 17th birthday back in November 2012.
