Last time we saw model Kaki West on this site she was breaking the balls of bad Tweeters and boastful storytellers. She’s still opinionated, perhaps even more so now that she’s a New Yorker, but that doesn’t mean she’s not noted for being pleasant and flexible. Extremely pleasant to look at, and flexible in that she stretches before working out in such a way that is, well, pleasant to look at. She’s been on streak of international magazine covers (see below) but it was a bit of simple spandex-clad limbering up (see above and below) that recently put her back on the radar of internet oglers everywhere.
You know, your hamstrings can never be too loose, that’s what we’ve always said. And your groin muscles — pull one of those and you’ll feel it for days. Keep stretching, Kaki. We will be standing nearby in a supervisory role.
You can get more Kaki at her blog, kakiwest.blogspot.com, and her official site, kakiwest.com, and if you follow her on Twitter she promises she will never clutter up your timeline with a bunch of gr8 LOLs.
A nickname I have had: Just Kaki, my brothers called me that since I was little.
I’m a nerd about: I am a type A. I am actually a nerd about a lot of things! Organization: Everything is organized in my bathroom, office, closet. Events: I pre-plan a lot of social gatherings, down to the color of the napkins, guests and music. And my husband has got my hooked on the NY Post every morning; I read it with my cup of coffee.
I would rather have a root canal than: Do math. Just thinking about math gets me irritated.
My greatest weakness: My dog, Roki, he is my soft spot. Whatever he wants, he gets.
If I was a Bond girl, my name would be: Blonderella.
Food that turns me on: Champagne and Peanut M&Ms.
I cried unnecessarily the day: Never! Crying is a good release, sometimes you need to just let it out.
When I throw a party I make sure to have: A theme. It helps guests mingle and get into the mood. Also good music and cocktails! I love throwing parties.
The funniest comedian is: The writer of the movie I Love You Man. I never laughed so hard in my life.
I wish people would stop Tweeting about their: Where do I begin? Tweeting on long rants that extend into 4 Tweets. It’s depressing.
Stay out of my way when: I am in work mode. I am disciplined and focused.
My superpower: The superpower to heal. I recently went to a VA hospital and couldn’t stomach the soldier’s battle wounds. Life is difficult but to add illness on top of every day chaos is traumatic.
I am completely freaked out by: Horror movies with religious plots. I couldn’t sleep for four nights after watching The Exorcist.
The most unpleasant word or phrase in the English language is: Abbrieviations such as “gr8″ and “idk”. My theory is you’re either lazy or don’t know how to spell. Both are no good.
I will never understand why men: Get their ears pierced. Men shouldn’t wear hoop earrings, ever!
My relationship with spectator sports is: I went to a New York Rangers playoff game and they won — it was spectacular.
The most exciting thing I did today was: A town car almost hit me on a cross walk and I yelled “Fuck off!” I have lived in NYC for barely a year, but I walked away from that feeling I had become a true New Yorker!
My secret weapon: My intelligence and ability to keep calm in intense situations. As they say, “Still waters run deep.”
Song I am most likely to play turned up to 11: “My Life” by the Game. It’s truly a deep song, it incorporates the hardships of life, love and loss. It’s an anthem on moving forward no matter what life throws at you.
My backup career if this whole “being pretty” thing doesn’t work out: I am a newlywed and plan on being a dedicated wife and stay-at-home mom. Family is the most important thing in the world to me.
The most rough-and-tumble outdoor activity I do is: I am a girly-girl. So I can play a mean wiffle ball with my nieces and nephews.
A grown man should not: Wear jeans with rhinestones on them.
