Khloe Kardashian Opens Up About Being Called the 'Fat Sister'
Khloe Kardashian is opening up about her struggles with her body image issues and being considered the “fat” sister in this new interview.
“Growing up, I was always chubby,” the 31-year-old reality star told People. “My girlfriends were always running around in two-pieces and I never felt comfortable to do that.”
“I knew I didn’t look like my sisters and I didn’t have those shapes, but I didn’t think that was wrong,” Khloe added. “I had parents who were incredibly loving and nurturing and always made me feel beautiful so I never really questioned that.”
It wasn’t until Keeping Up with the Kardashians started that Khloe realized she would be compared to her sisters.
“Right before the show started, I thought I was in good shape, but I guess not good enough for Hollywood’s eyes,” Khloe said. “I didn’t realize I was the ‘fat’ sister until I went on TV and the media started saying that about me.”
“Being compared to my sisters was something I was used to. But being compared in such a harsh way … I just thought, ‘Okay, that’s my role.’ So I started saying it before people. I was like, ‘Okay, I’m the fat, funny sister. Who cares?’ I almost let that take ownership of me,” Khloe continued. “[In reality] I wasn’t fat; I wasn’t obese. But I would let society make me believe that I was.”
