Despite slimming down recently, Kim Kardashian says she's held onto her famous curves -- and cellulite.

"I don't have a problem telling people, 'Hey, look, I have cellulite!'" Kardashian, 29, declared in a radio interview Friday on Atlanta's Q100.

"I do everything I can in my power to fix it. I never said cellulite was cute," the reality star added. "But I have it. I embrace it, I'm okay with it!" Kardashian surmised that the admission makes her more "relatable" to fans -- including a few turned off by her skinnier figure as it appeared in a QuickTrim commercial.

"I looked really toned," she said of the ads. "I got a lot of flak for that. [People said] 'Oh, don't lose your curves! Why did you lose weight?'....You look heavier when you're on TV, so it's better to get [your weight] down."

Never fear, however: Kardashian explained that right after that controversial shoot took place, she joined boyfriend Reggie Bush in New Orleans and "ate so much!" The QuickTrim spokeswoman continues to defend her new shape. "The weight I'm at now is the perfect weight for me," she says "I'm still extremely curvy."

And though she made a name for herself as a voluptuous star, "I just wasn't comfortable in a bikini. I always wore a sarong. I don't want to always feel uncomfortable."

Plus, her new fitness regime is a turn on for football star boyfriend Bush. "I've been setting my alarm, getting up and going to the gym," she says. "That, to him, is sexy!"
