Khloe Kardashian looked amazing in her feature in Harper’s Bazzar where she opened up about fame, dating and her entry into the world of high fashion.
She also talked about how fashion designers and stylists didn’t want to work with her when she was overweight. She said they actually said to her:
‘I just can’t work with you’—because I was too big. That always hurt my feelings, of course.”
Khloe said she never set out to lose weight, because she didn’t believe it was possible for her to lose wight but that she started going to Equinox in the affluent Los Angeles neighborhood of Woodland Hills,because it was a strategic way to escape her troubled personal life.
“My home with Lamar was dark and toxic,” she says. “At the time, my family didn’t know what I was going through. It was the biggest secret I’ve kept. I just needed a place to go.”
She said she couldn’t hide out at her mother’s house because her mum would have started asking too many questions and she was too scared to find sanctuary at a hotel (“the paparazzi would see me and it would look shady”), so she simply started going to the gym.
“They had a TV and I could watch The Real Housewives on an elliptical,” Khloé laughs. “No one talked to me. I loved that solitude.”
Then, slowly, she began to lose weight. Soon after, she sought out the services of personal trainer, Peterson, known for training Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie and Sofia Vergara.
Now, she works out three to five times a week and credits much of her weight loss to a focus on her health, rather than her clothing size.
“I never thought about the number,” she says. “When I started seeing that I could lose weight, because I just thought my body would never change, I started taking it more seriously and eating better.”
In regards to insecurities, she said:
“I like to say I don’t care what people say about me, but that’s not true.”. “Not wanting to go to certain places because I wonder what will be written about me the next day—I hate that I carry that with me.”
Then there is Instagram, where some of her posts can garner upward of 5,000 comments and that she reads some of them. She said:
“I think people who say they don’t care are lying,”. “What’s sad is that I can read 10 beautiful comments and then one bad one and I’m like, ‘Ugh!'”
She added that today, those same stylists are now approaching her and offering to dress her for events and public appearances.
“I’m just like, ‘F— you. I’m not going to reward your bad behavior.'”
