Khloe Kardashian Loves Her Mom, But Also Thinks She’s The Worst

Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner attending LA Clippers game February 2013Happy almost Mother’s Day from one of the most confusing celebrity mother-daughter pairs around: Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner! Every interview that Khloe gives about Kris gets me more confused, because she starts out saying how much she respects her mom, and regrets ever giving her shit back in the day, and then by the end of the article she’s saying how she’ll do things completely differently when she’s a parent herself, because Kris Jenner is bad and wrong and constantly made her feel terrible. Para examplay, in the June issue of Cosmopolitan UK, here’s how Khloe starts out her interview for their cover story:

“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.”

Well that’s great! It’s a bummer that she felt resentment toward her mom, but encouraging to see Khloe have some empathy in this situation. Also this is Kris Jenner we’re talking about, so I don’t know if I can really blame her. But then Khloe goes on, and the distinction between “I love my mom” and “I hate my mom” gets a little more murky, particularly when we move on to a discussion of Khloe’s weight and how it was negatively affecting the Kardashian brand:

“[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.”

Ummm yeah. Okay, so there’s a lot to get through, here. Like…this is just a lot. First of all, ew Kris Jenner, for talking to your daughter about her weight as a manager and not a mom. Your foremost concern should be her health, not your brand. Ew ew ew. And then the fact that Khloe knows Kim is her mom’s favorite…and she’s actually found a way to talk herself into that being okay? This is just such a tangled Kardashian web, you guys. This relationship makes me sad and tired. Sired.

      Not all mothers/daughters are required to have movie perfect relationships. There’s no hiding the fact that mothers and daughters often butt heads. I think it’s important that Khloe realizes this and establishes emotional barriers. Otherwise she would have continued to chase something that doesn’t exist, her mother’s undivided attention. Doesn’t mean she hates her mother. Just that she knows where she stands and can adjust accordingly.

      I had a great relationship with my mom up until my teen years. Then I started to see her for who she really is. She’s my polar opposite. We had a complete falling out when I got pregnant. We’ve mended our relationship a bit over the past 4 years but there’s no going back to those innocent years we used to have.

        Did your mom ever tell you to lose weight because it’s damaging your brand?

        Mine told me to stop eating because I was a “fat, f*cking pig” when I weighed under 100 pounds and was dying of anorexia.

        We don’t speak anymore and I tell people she’s dead. I do hate her. Not in an angry, fiery way that takes any of my energy but in the same way I hate someone I see on the news who blew up a building or raped a child. She’s just a bad person.

        I understand Khloe saying she loves her mom though. I said I loved my mom for decades because people would tell me I was a bad person if I said I didn’t love her. It took me a long time to get to the point where I could just cut her off.
