SEVERAL days may have passed but there is no erasing the image from my mind.
Once seen in its full glory, Kim Kardashian's bum will never be forgotten.
We had, of course, seen it flaunted before our faces many times before - but it looked rather different in days gone by after the Photoshop magic had been worked on it, smoothing out its lumps and bumps.
Last Monday, the reality star stepped out on her hols in just a thong, revealing her sizeable derriere in its unadulaterated form.
Many were quick to congratulate her for daring to bare. But many others leapt to point out the pictures hit a bum note after years of exposing young fans to fake images of her seemingly sensational and faultless curves.
The very next day pictures again emerged of her in a bikini but this time with considerably less cellulite.
I'll have whatever she's having please. Did it bother me that Kim is less than perfect in reality? Absolutely not. Was it refreshing to see her pictured in a more candid light? Totally. I could have done with seeing a bit less of it but it was finally proof, if ever we needed it, of the lengths some stars will go to convince us they are faultless.
So now everyone wants to know whether the cellulite shots were released on purpose to gain attention - with 100 per cent success - or whether it was a slip, or something she wasn't even aware of.
I've never been a Kardashian fan. They are over-exposed in every sense.
Bikini-gate is the first thing to pique my interest about them since the Paris robbery.
In my view they encourage young girls to pursue the same vacuous lifestyle in similarly vacuous outfits as they seemingly enjoy so much. It's all skimpy skirts and figure-hugging everything with skyscraper heels.
I'm sick of it. Sick of seeing them in it and sick of seeing 13-year-old girls in it too. I want it to stop.
I have boys so I can easily sit on my high horse. A lot of the mums I know who have girls share my concerns but they don't all crack down on it because their kids are terrified of not fitting in.
I can relate to that. I have found myself buying my son games I don't want him to play because he has told me he feels left out in the playground and at home too when they all link up with their headphones and mics to play together "virtually" after school.
Some twits completely encourage their girls to go full Kardashian. And that, I will never understand.
As the bum on the beach now tells us, no one likes a fake.
