Does Kris Jenner make Khloe Kardashian miserable?
Reality star celeb Khloe Kardashian has spent some time branding herself as the fat Kardashian sister. The younger sister of Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian has been up and down and back up again. Recently she broke down and cried, saying that she was tired of pretending to be happy about her weight. But now, again, she says she’s comfortable. Of course, she also says she can fit into a size 0, down from a size 12, according to Maressa Brown of The Stir, a CafeMom blog.
But what is this all about, really? Maressa notes that “momager” Kris Jenner and the brother of Khloe Kardashian both have referenced the sister’s weight issues, berating her over eating a cookie and calling her “big.” They are pushing Khloe to low self-esteem, which causes depression and which is one of the quickest ways to put on the pounds.
Khloe spoke to Us Weekly and had this to say:
“They are 5-foot and 5-foot-2, so I look massive next to them,” Khloe, who is 5-foot-10, tells Us. “Everyone expects me to be 9 feet tall and weigh 200 pounds [when they meet me].”
In truth, though, it seems she’s more concerned with her overall size than she is with her weight in particular. And that is something she’ll just have to get used to. Further into the interview, star celeb Khloe Kardashian explains how she and her brother Rob had weight issues growing up. She recalls her poor diet and says that she really started putting on more pounds when her mother and “momager,” Kris Jenner, and her father, Robert Kardashian, Sr., divorced. Not an unusual reaction in a time of family stress.
But Maressa Brown from CafeMom seems to have the wrong take on all this. She doesn’t buy that Khloe actually may be coming to terms with not only her size but her weight as well. And she suggests that Khloe is relying on husband Lamar Odom to feel better about herself. That is as belittling an assessment as flat-out calling Khloe fat (and she’s not).
Khloe has every right to want to look her best while maintaining a positive body image in the meantime. A person can improve without feeling she is lousy. The healthy attitude to take is the one Khloe is trying to stick to — recognizing opportunities for improvement, admitting imperfection, and moving ahead with a positive attitude in spite of critics… especially those in her own family.
All this author has to say is You go, girl!
Because Kris Jenner makes Khloe Kardashian nuts.
As Khloe herself said to her mother [via US Magazine],
“To tell me I’m ruining a whole brand because of my weight gain makes me feel like s–t. Get over yourself. You’re such a f–king raging lunatic and you’re so evil,” she snipes to Jenner. “I’m too f–king fat, too f–king that. Do you want me to get pregnant? Do you want me to lose weight? You tell me you want me to have a baby every second, but I can’t be on some crazy diet. I just don’t get what you want out of me!”
And that kind of pressure — of not being able to please an overly demanding parent — can be way too much.
