Khloe Kardashian covers the June issue of Cosmo UK. It’s a decent photo shoot, although the cover is kind of meh. Khloe has lost weight recently, and she’s been playing around with her look and I have to say, she’s looking really good, right? Khloe is everybody’s favorite Kardashian, probably because we sense that she’s not really a Kardashian (allegedly). Anyway, Khloe talks about diets and workouts and fame in her interview:
Battling self-esteem issues: “I probably thought I was prettier before I entered the spotlight because being compared to somebody else every day does sort of beat up your spirit and soul. It’s made me stronger. I’ve gained another level of confidence. I’ve always known that I’m not Kim and I’m not Kourtney – I’ve always been OK with that.”
On her body: “I don’t care what size I am; I care about how I look. If my jeans are tight and I have a little muffin top, then OK, I have to cut down on the carbs. I don’t expect to be a size 2 [a UK size 6] and nor do I want to be. I’m 5ft 10ins and I like being curvy.”
Weight fluctuations: “After my father died [when she was 19], I gained a lot of weight, and then I was in the spotlight. I was quickly criticised for not being a cookie-cutter sister like Kourtney and Kim. I lost about 30lbs before I did Kourtney And Khloé Take Miami [in 2009]. I was feeling so good about myself and I was still so critiqued. I thought, ”Oh, my gosh, if I’m not good enough now…” And that’s when something clicked in my brain: I have to do whatever is good for me…I feel that I’m healthier [now], but I don’t think I’m prettier thinner. I understand why so many people in this industry have eating disorders or want plastic surgery, and I’m proud I’ve done things the healthy way.”
Fertility struggles: “I just wanted to be, ”Hey, let’s have a baby,” and we would just have one. Kourtney did. I wish that was the way for me. But it won’t be. I’ll have to take hormones. I do want to have a baby, but I don’t feel the urgency to have one this very moment.”
She throws shade at her mom: “I’d never manage my kids. We gang up on Mom and that has to be so hard. Now I’m getting older I feel sorry for her rather than resent her. Once my mom told me I was gaining weight, but she was talking to me as a manager, like I was ruining a brand deal. It’s hard to understand that and it’s more hurtful when it’s coming from my mom, but Kim is definitely her favorite. It doesn’t bother me. They’re so similar – they could be the same person.”
On Kanye West: “I think Kanye [West] knows how to deal with Kim really well. Kris [Humphries] wouldn’t even talk to us. I love that with Kanye we have that friendship. Because when you’re with one of us you’re with all of us.”
The sisters have said that about their mom before – that Kris Jenner plays favorites and Kim is her favorite. Which sucks. I’m saying that as an only child who sometimes got jealous over my parents paying attention to the dog. Kris is such a bad mother. I hate to say that so bluntly, but there it is. When you look at it that way, it’s kind of a miracle that Khloe has turned out relatively normal.
