There are few celebrities who can hold it together as well as Khloe Kardashian.
The reality star is currently promoting her new book, Strong Looks Better Naked, while also dealing with the “emotionally draining” hospitalization of Lamar Odom and a strained relationship with James Harden.
Check out the highlights below.
On keeping Lamar’s condition private: “If you look at my past with him, I’ve always been more private. So for me, keeping this private is a big deal. I’ve seen a lot of people talk about it, and I think they shouldn’t. You shouldn’t talk about a medical situation unless you’re around it.”
On her current status with James Harden: “Right now, at this moment — I can’t even tell you what’s going to happen in 30 minutes, which I’ve learned recently — but James and I are great, and we’re on a great page. As of this moment, he’s been very supportive. He and I are doing just fine.”
On the assumption that she and Lamar are back together: “There is so much more medically and emotionally that we have to go through in order to even think about anything romantically,” she said. “This is a very serious situation with a lot of layers. He has a long road ahead of him, and I will be there by his side. I will always love him unconditionally,” she said firmly. “That will never waver coming from me.”
On why she chose to cut her hair: “I was just emotional and irritated being in a hospital — I don’t know why I did it, but I like it.”
On her label as the “funny” Kardashian: Sometimes I talk too much. I’m just … very honest. I’ve also had people be like ‘Oh my God, you’re so funny, will you tell me a joke?’ And I’m like ‘I’m not Kathy Griffin!’ As much as I wish I could, I don’t do stand-up.”
On her stunning weight loss: “I remember the first blog I ever saw of myself was on Perez Hilton, and it was bashing me so horribly that it haunted me. I always thought I had a pretty normal body — I could have lost weight six years ago, I could have done all of that. I don’t want to do something for somebody else. I’ve been so dope this whole time,” she asserts, “I’m a good person. I’ve only changed physically.”
On finding love: “I mean, I don’t know. I’m dating, obviously. James. But I haven’t really spoken a lot about him. I’ve learned from experience you just never know what happens in life. I’ve chosen to keep things closer to my heart until I figure it out. I love hard, I love who I love, and I don’t make any qualms about it. And I can’t wait for that to happen. I think I was so open and honest about my relationship with Lamar — which I don’t regret for a second; it was the best time of my life. But because you can’t just show these wonderful things and then not show the other stuff — like ‘Oh! Lamar disappeared!’ I had to explain I was going through a divorce, and people appreciate that and relate to it,” she pauses. “And we also had a great love story, so I think people want to see that for me again.”
On social media: “If Instagram were to take a picture of your soul, what would that look like? I know my soul is beautiful, I know I’m a good person,” she says. “And that will never change for me.”
