Khloé Kardashian talked about the ongoing controversy over her appearance at the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” reunion that aired on Sunday, telling Andy Cohen, “Everybody says, ‘Oh, my gosh, she’s had her third face transplant!’ But I’ve had one nose job.”
The 36-year-old reality TV star continued, “Everybody gets so upset, like, why don’t I talk about it? Nobody’s ever asked me. You’re the first person in an interview that’s ever asked me about my nose. I’ve done, sure, injections — not really Botox. I’ve responded poorly to Botox.
“When the show first started I was very secure. Very secure. And then during the first couple of seasons I became insecure because of the public opinions of myself. Then I had a think I had a good run of being secure, and then I think recently I’ve become insecure again.
“I was so confident and secure before the show. Season 1, I wouldn’t say I was famous. I was Kim’s sister, but I remember Kourtney and I would always be in the background of her photos and we loved it.”
Khloé Kardashian said she was very confident before the show began, that she would wear Kim’s bodycon dresses even if they didn’t fit her, but she became insecure when “all the Perez Hiltons and all those blogs at the time” began to call me “fugly” or “all these crazy things.”
“I became insecure because of everybody else telling me,” she said while adding that she felt Kim and Kourtney received preferential treatment, including “racks and racks of clothes,” on photoshoots because of their looks.
“It was never a question. It was fact. And it was very blatant as well,” she said.
Though Khloé isn’t claiming that her family treated her differently because of her look, but she said her issues with body image are what her so adamant about pushing size inclusivity with her clothing line.
Khloé Kardashian came all out to address her struggles with body image in April this year when her team tried to pull down an unedited image of her that mistakenly leaked into the internet.
“The photo that was posted this week is beautiful. But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad lighting or doesn’t capture your body the way it is after working so hard to get it to this point, and then shares it to the world, you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared regardless of who you are,” she said while then.
