Khloe Kardashian Talks Being Considered “The Ugly Sister”
Being the tall and towering, stallion-esque Kardashian sister with the noticeably different physical and facial features is no easy task.
In addition her chubby-lumpkins struggle to stay thin and still go toe-to-toe with her thicky-thick sisters in the limelight, Khloe is also the only one of the three to have a ring on her finger and plenty of rumors to go along with it.
Khloe recently sat down with The Block to reveal how she really feels about being considered the no-so-pretty sister. Check out a few excerpts from the interview below:
JWD: In Interviews, I’ve heard you group together the experience of being bullied with the comparisons that you had with your sisters. Was there ever a point when you thought, “If I was an only child, I wouldn’t be experiencing this.”
KK: No because when I was bullied…Yes, it happened from comparison. Even with teachers. They didn’t realize it, but they would teach my sisters before me because we all attended the same school, and they’d say to me “Oh, you’re a Kardashian sister? But they’re so pretty!” They’re not saying I’m ugly, but they are —-or that’s how I took it.
JWD: Well, because that’s your core belief already.
KK: Right, so it validates that. But I do believe that stuff prepared me for being older because now everyone has an opinion and everyone still compares me to them. It made me stronger. Everyone asks, “How did you get so confident?” But I don’t know when the turning point was. One day I just thought, yeah, I am different and I’m pretty in my own way and they’re pretty in their own way. Some people like apples, some people like oranges, but that doesn’t mean that apples are bad. I just accept it. My dad always used to tell me, “Your sisters, you might think, are so drop-dead beautiful but you have a personality that a lot of people would like have.” When he said that to me, he wasn’t saying that I wasn’t beautiful. He was saying, you’re going to come into your own but own what you have right now. And he’s right, I’m fun and I get along with people. I’ve just owned who I am.
Good for her. Hopefully all that confidence will help keep her marriage in tact..
