|Khloe posing recently with her sisters (I think she’s bending her knees to appear shorter)|
In case you think any Kardashian show or spinoff is a total waste of time, here’s a quick recap. Khloe received a phone call from her class act mom telling her to stop talking about “eating cookies” to the media because her “size” was bad for the image of the diet pills the three sisters are hawking.
Earlier in the episode, her brother Rob told her tabloids and bloggers were calling her “fat” after her husband, Lamar, was quoted as saying Khloe was “not small.” Yes, it was her choice to allow all of this body bashing to go on the show and she’s making lots of money, but her feelings being crushed seemed genuine.
The family on a recent cover of Redbook
The reason I think it’s such an important topic is women occasionally compare themselves to other women, their friends or their sisters at all points of their lives. It’s surprising how fast their body confidence can change in the matter of hours. For example, my freshman year of college I was 5’7″ and I outweighed my high school sister by 25 lbs.
I went to borrow one of her shirts and she said,
“No, don’t wear that, you’re too big and you’ll stretch it out and ruin it.”
Honesty between sisters can be brutal. Within a few years she had a growth spurt and we were almost the exact height and weight, but I’m sure many women can relate at some point feeling like the “big girl” or maybe the “runt” of the family.
