Our favorite Kardashian sister, Khloe, may be a successful TV star and business entrepreneur, but she tells Life & Style Weekly magazine, that she is still tormented by memories of her past.
Khloe, who was spotted yesterday buying jewelry in Beverly Hills, said she was called ‘fat’ and ‘ugly’ by other kids throughout her childhood and it was the love of her sisters that saved her.
She says: “Having someone in your class call you fat, ugly, too tall and so on, you start to think all those things about yourself. And if you’re like me, those words are played on repeat inside your head. Khloe says it was her family that saved her from despair during the most difficult period of her life.
Her petite and super-slim sisters Kim and Kourtney were the very people who saved her from feeling terrible.
“When I was at home, I felt loved and safe. My sisters were always a safe haven for me. I knew they would always play with me and make me feel like I was one of them.” [link]
Khloe grew up to be more statuesque and beautiful than her skinnier sister Kim Kardashian who struggles with self-esteem and body image issues.
It’s because Khloe remains humble that she has become the favorite among fans who watch “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” every Sunday.
In a video she made for an anti-bullying campaign, Khloe targeted celebrity blogger Perez Hilton as a bully who tormented her for most of her adult life:
“I’ve been bullied, basically, my entire life. I’ve been compared to my sisters since the day I was born. I don’t look exactly like them… I’m bigger than them, but I’m me…I’m just always told how big I am… It’s always something.
“I’ve always struggled with my weight, I’ve always struggled with my height, with my hair colour, with my skin colour… and Perez is a major factor (of bullying) in my adult life… I thought bullying would be done, but, in my world, it’s not done.”
She added: “No matter what, you can always work out of it, you can always move past it. I don’t think anybody should ever take their life for being bullied.”
