So Khloe Kardashian stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to talk about body image, Kimye, and being on the cover of Cosmo, and she remains as likable and down-to-Earth as a Kardashian could possibly be. Working theory: she was fawned over the least as a child.
When Ellen asked her about her new Cosmopolitan cover, Khloe said how happy it made her, as her sisters are usually the ones asked to do the sexy posing:
They sent the email and I sent it to my publicist…my sisters and I share the same team. I said, oh I think you sent this to the wrong sister. They were like no, Cosmo wants you. It’s my first US big issue. It’s a big deal for me because I’ve always been ridiculed about my weight. They’re always saying, I’m not the prettiest sister or I’m too fat or that. So when they asked me to be a on a cover like Cosmo, it was a big deal for me to show off my curves and I don’t have to be a size zero to be on the cover.
She also referred to her sisters Kim and Kourtney as “mini-mes,” which I found pretty amusing. For the record, Khloe is 5’10″ and a hulking size 6.
Later, Ellen asked what’s on everyone’s minds right now re: Kardashians, namely, what the fuck is up with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West? Khloe seemed to acknowledge a bit of her sister’s ridiculousness when she replied “I don’t know what happens with Kim.” Nor does anyone, Khloe.
I also love that she spoke her mind to Kim about her weird engagement to Kris Humphries, saying, “I like Kris as a person. I just did not like them together…I was the only one to tell her. I don’t know why no one else told her that.” I feel like Ellen should pitch a spin-off show called Real Talk With Khloe Kardashian.
