Ellen: Khloe Kardashian Odom
Khloe Kardashian is tired of being called fat.
Ellen DeGeneres welcomed the reality star and entrepreneur for a chat about that and her husband’s latest career move.
Khloe Kardashian is on the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine, and she said it was an honor to be the cover girl. At first she thought it was a mistake, but they really wanted her.
“It’s a big deal for me, because I’ve been always ridiculed about my weight,” Khloe said, mentioning that critics often call her fat and compare her unfavorably to her siblings.
“When they asked me to be on a cover like Cosmo, it was such a big deal for me to show off my curves,” she said. “And I don’t have to be a size zero to be on the cover.”
Ellen: Khloe Kardashian Compared To Sisters
Ellen said she must have good self esteem, but it’s still hurtful when people criticize you. Khloe said that people often tell her in person that she’s lost weight, even though she hasn’t. She said she’s lived her life in the shadow of her sisters.
“I’m a size 6. I don’t know what’s so big about that,” she said. “I can be 5’10” and beautiful and cute too,” she said, noting that her sisters are taller than her.
Ellen said that celebrities are used to being compared to one another, but it’s got to get personal when the comparisons are among family members.
Khloe said her size limits the choices she has for fashion shoots, though her slimmer sisters are offered many more choices.
“I think big is beautiful,” she said. “I don’t think there should be a limitation on what is considered sexy and cute.”
Ashley Judd recently took the media to task for comments about her weight and appearance. Did you read Ashley’s Huffington Post Oped? What do you think about her & Kourtney’s comments?
Ellen: Lamar Odom Leaving Dallas Mavericks
She said her husband and her sisters are supportive of her body. Of course, her husband is NBA star Lamar Odom, who is leaving the Dallas Mavericks. But the silver lining is that Khloe and Lamar are going to be able to move back to Los Angeles.
Khloe Kardashian Dallas Tornadoes
Khloe said she enjoyed her short stint in Dallas, despite the recent tornado scare. The couple lived in a glass building, and she said realtors told her that Dallas doesn’t get tornadoes.
Then of course the city recently did experience some freak spring storms. Khloe said the doorman filled her in on what to do in the event of a tornado: go to the basement.
Khloe said she didn’t go to the bunker when the tornadoes hit Dallas recently, because Lamar told her she’d be safe. “It was very scary,” she said, though it sounds like she wasn’t in harm’s way. Tornadoes are unpredictable, and they’re popping up in unusual places lately.
