Piers:

“The Kar­dashi­ans need to put their bod­ies away – it’s em­bar­rass­ing”

Closer (UK) - - Contents -

e had al­ways been a fan H of Kim Kar­dashian un­til he sud­denly slammed her risqué self­ies and said the Paris heist – where she was held at gun­point in 2016 – may have been “the best thing that hap­pened to her”.

And af­ter Kim re­vealed in a post last week that he was on her list of “haters” – along­side Tay­lor Swift and Blac Chyna – whom she was play­fully send­ing her new per­fume range to, the friend­ship’s clearly null and void.

And Piers Mor­gan, 52, proved the feel­ing was mu­tual as he re­vealed to Closer his thoughts on her lat­est semi-naked snaps.

SO­CIAL DECORUM

“I think it’s pa­thetic,” he smiles, mis­chie­vously. “If I was in a room with Kim now, I’d say, ‘Put it all away! You’re a mum to three kids – it’s em­bar­rass­ing.’ Imag­ine be­ing a mum and thinking, ‘Ooh I must show my breasts and flash my bot­tom on so­cial me­dia’. So em­bar­rass­ing – have some so­cial decorum!”

The Good Morn­ing Bri­tain pre­sen­ter – known for his un­apolo­getic opin­ions – is no

“I’m not into yoga or mind­ful­ness – us Brits are lazy enough as it is!” jokes Piers. “But I have just got into spin­ning. I bought this Amer­i­can bike, which has a com­puter in it that you con­nect to a stu­dio in New York, with all these great train­ers, so it’s like you’re in the class with them! It’s bril­liant. My wife is re­ally into clean-eat­ing [only hav­ing or­ganic, un­pro­cessed food], so she tries to get me into it all. But of­ten the lure of a Fri­day tan­doori take­away is too much. Chicken tikka masala, pi­lau rice, naan bread, a bot­tle of wine and some cheese is per­fect.”

CELEB MATES

Piers has had a pro­lific ca­reer. At 28, he be­came the youngest ever edi­tor of The News Of The World in 1994. Two years later he was named edi­tor of the Daily Mir­ror un­til be­ing sacked in 2004 af­ter pub­lish­ing faked Iraqi pris­oner “tor­ture” pics, but ad­mits he was saved two years later when Si­mon Cow­ell gave him a judg­ing role on Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent. Through­out his ca­reer he’s in­ter­viewed some of the big­gest stars in the world – in­clud­ing

The star says wife Celia keeps him in shape

With his three sons, Spencer, Al­bert and Stan­ley The pre­sen­ter in­ter­viewed Cait­lyn on his show stranger to a celeb feud and has also called out the likes of Emily Rata­jkowski, Su­san Saran­don and most re­cently Madonna for ex­pos­ing too much of their bod­ies.

He says, “When these women say they are proud of their bod­ies so they show off their be­hinds, I think it’s rub­bish. I’m proud of my body, but I don’t dis­play it all over so­cial me­dia! It’s bulls**t. It’s set­ting fem­i­nism back years – fem­i­nism is about gender equal­ity and women’s rights and there is noth­ing em­pow­er­ing about flash­ing your boobs. They’re hi­jack­ing the fem­i­nist move­ment and wrecking it for ev­ery­one.

“Em­me­line Pankhurst and the Suf­fragettes did not risk their lives so that Kim Kar­dashian and Emily Rata­jkowski could get their t**s out.”

While the dad – who has Spencer, 24, Stan­ley, 20, and Al­bert, 17, from a pre­vi­ous mar­riage, and Elise, six, with his jour­nal­ist wife Celia Walden – is open about his dis­dain for flesh-flash­ing, it seems he’s re­cently be­come just as crit­i­cal of his own body. Last De­cem­ber, he struck up a bet with Lord Alan Sugar over who could lose the most weight. He thinks Kim should “put them away”
