Was Kourtney photoshopped into Kim Kardashian's latest family pic? Internet says 'she looks like a hologram'
'They totally photoshopped a random photo of Kourtney into their group photo... like I Photoshop all my pics into my family photos'
On Wednesday, December 23, Kim Kardashian West shared a photo on Instagram, captioned, “Tahoe w the fam.” The photo featured Corey Gamble, Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick, and Kim. The socialite-reality TV family headed to Tahoe earlier this month. Reportedly, their shenanigans there will also be part of the final season of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’.
"The Kardashians spent three nights at Edgewood Tahoe filming for the show," a source told E! News. "They had some of the kids with them and they all played outside and sat by the fire and roasted marshmallows. They also went ice skating on a private rink. They enjoyed a hot chocolate bar and had a big fireworks show over the lake at night."
This seemingly-innocuous family photo, however, became something of a topic on social media, when Twitter users began to wonder if Kourtney was really in the picture, or if she was later photoshopped in. So much so, that Twitter’s official description for the trend was: “People are speculating that the Kardashian-Jenner family photoshopped Kourtney into a recent photo shared by Kim.”
A Twitter user shared the photo and wrote, “I think we can all agree that Kourtney was photoshopped into the latest Kardashian family photo.” Another Twitter user responded to Kim’s tweet and said, “They totally photoshopped a random photo of Kourtney into their group photo😂 ya know, like I Photoshop all my pics into my family photos.” Yet another Twitter user commented, “Why does Kourtney’s head look like it’s been photoshopped in?” One Twitter user went a step ahead and remarked, “She looks like a hologram.”

The confusion was understandable. Kourtney’s photo had a slight glow around her frame, making her appear more discolored than the rest of the group. This is why people speculated if she was there at Tahoe, to begin with. While this is, of course, something that will become apparent when the new season of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ will air in early 2021, Kim is shutting down the speculation. Kim’s rep told Page Six on December 23 that Kourtney really was with the crew for the picture. “She was NOT photoshopped in… it’s the lighting, it’s backlit,” her rep said in an email.
Earlier this year, in September, Kim announced that after 20 seasons, ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ would be coming to an end. Kim wrote on Instagram, “To our amazing fans — It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’. After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes, and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years — through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children. We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way.”
The reality show premiered in 2007 and turned the Kardashian-Jenner family into international superstars. In the years since, the socialite family has become ubiquitous with fashion, television, music, and popular culture.
