MISS KITTY: Loving her body, surviving life in the spotlight, and planning for a family

FIGURE OF SPEECH: "At the end of the day I’m striving for a family," says the radio diva.

Last Sunday evening, Khadine ‘Miss Kitty” Hylton put in an appearance on CVM’s new gabfest The Karen D Show to dish about all things fluffy, and more. As could be anticipated, the interview offered a fascinating and deliriously entertaining peek into the life of one of Jamaica’s most well-known and dynamic radio-television stars, while offering viewers a healthy dose of food for thought. Below, excerpts from their conversation: 

On her weight loss and surviving life in the spotlight: 
“What a lot of people don’t understand is that as public figures, we are human beings, too. So if I’m stressed the weight is gonna go. But I still have to function. I still have to come to work. I still have to perform. But at the end of the day, you are going through a tumultuous period and so some of the weight will go… So sometimes in life things happen and because you don’t walk around with a placard, people don’t know.” 

On maintaining her sexy and loving her body: 
“I’m still double digits. It’s not like seh now I’m a size two, and I’m not a size four. I still wear my girdles, and dem things deh. You still invest in good under-clothes to keep yourself together. I’m always comfortable in my skin and who I am, once I can find the clothes. I’m still fluffy, and I’m still sexy with it… Fluffy will always be me, and fluffiness is not about what’s on the outside but also what’s on the inside. It’s also the psychological dynamic of how you see yourself and how you carry yourself and how you love yourself.” 

On marriage and starting a family: 
“The single-mother world, if you’re stuck in it and you have to do it, do it. But at the end of the day I’m striving for a family. I want a husband. I want a father there because if I happen to have a son there are certain shortcomings I’m going to have. I am not a man, and I can’t do what a man will do. Fathers are very important. Even if I have a daughter, too, the father has to come into play.” 

On penning a follow-up to her fiction debut, Good Girl Gone Bad
“I’m looking forward to doing that. I have some ideas going through my head after, of course, relishing Fifty Shades of Grey. I have some ideas. I’m always open to learning and I don’t close out anything, once it’s going to help somebody actualize their dream or better themselves.” 

On the source of her superconfidence and optimism: 
“From an early age, my mom instilled in me love of self, and not in a narcissistic kind of way. You have to appreciate who you are. At the end of the day, you have to love yourself, flaws and all.”
