The camera may love Kim Kardashian, but nothing compares to how much the reality star enjoys being behind it! The selfie queen has built a career out of snapping shots of her famous figure, which may come off as narcissistic – especially with the release of her upcoming selfie book Selfish. But life management expert Kim Friedmutter explains exclusively to RadarOnline.com that not all selfie-taking is narcissistic. "Narcissism is Kim Kardashian's product, that's what she sells. The narcissist in Kim's way is commodity, relevance, accessibility," she explains of the three drives that complete the reality star's human desire to be noticed. "By posting selfies on social media, those images that receive thousands of likes become a narsie," she says. Friedmutter takes us through 15 of Kim's greatest narsies and explains why they are a form of narcissistic behavior.
Kim continues to use the figure that made her famous as a way to remain relevant, the first of the three primal drives. "Boy, these boobs look big," Friedmutter believes is Kim's thought behind posting the narsie.
Although her marriage to Kanye West seems perfect in photos, the duo has been plagued with breakup rumors since tying the knot in May. "With the second drive, accessibility, it provides this private look into the inner sanctum of the individual," Friedmutter explains. "Socially, with very little effort, it strategically reveals a person's preferences. She's absolutely letting us know that any of the photos that you see with the two of them is an, 'I'm all right,' 'we're all right.' The word to the village is that 'we're good.'"
Kim was highly criticized during her pregnancy with North West because of her weight gain. The drive of commodity establishes her success of maintaining a fit lifestyle, which she makes sure to show the world. "This is bounce back time. If her body weathered the storm we would see all about it," Friedmutter says of the narsie.
Friedmutter believes Kim is saying by cutting her daughter out of the photo, "This diamond is my friend, the person next to me not so much." She added, "For me, who is next to her didn't make the cut. That diamond is the center of the photo."
"The queen verses the villagers, which is why she makes herself queen of that shot," she claims. "As far as other relationships, there could only be one queen. That means everybody needs to fall in line behind her."
She explains of Kim's reason for posting three of the same image, "I'm a narsie and I know it! You can never get enough of me." Friedmutter added, "Say says, 'I'm great and here's my picture.' She has pushed that envelope visually."
The caption to one of Kim's most-talked about narsies is, "boots with the fur." Friedmutter interprets the photo through the lyrics of Flo Rida's "Low." "Bikini bottom briefs, boots with the fur, the whole world's looking at her," she says. "Here she's the master of taking something that we see as a negative. All those nude photos of her "breaking the Internet," I think all of that was the next stream. She's not leaving much else, she's leaving the intrigue still in tact."

"She's saying best butts forever, she's my BFF. We know that they're not friends anymore," she explains of Kim and Blac Chyna. "This photo shows who has a real a** and who's being a real a**!" The curved doorframe in the back proves the image was photoshopped. Friedmutter says of Kim altering the image, "That's what you call narsie management, you can't let a photo go out without it looking exactly right."
From butt implants to lip injections, the Kardashian/Jenner sisters are always denying plastic surgery rumors. Friedmutter believes the reality star is showing off her long lashes to make it the focal point of the photo. She claims Kim is asking in this photo, "Do these lashes make my lips look big?"
Friedmutter claims Kim is saying, "The lights are on me, even backstage!"
"It takes a village. I'm queen and these are my workers bees," she says of the narsie.
The reality star flaunted her famous booty in a nearly naked throwback photo to thank her fans for helping her reach 27 million followers on Instagram. Friedmutter believes Kim is saying through the narsie, "You've been a very good fan, like you've been a very good boy."
"She's taking the picture because she's cut," Friedmutter says of Kim's toned tummy. "She always mixes something soft, which is herself, with these hard, hard lines."
"On the road to thin, it almost looks like the yellow brick road, taking steps towards thin by having the literal steps," she says of Kim's waist trainer.
Friedmutter believes the "narsie naughty, narsie nice" photo was taken in a waiting room, which she explains that Kim is, "making use of waiting time. There is always time for a narsie!"
