In an exclusive interview with Harper's Bazaar, Khloe Kardashian opened up about everything from her love life to a healthy lifestyle. The 31-year-old reality star, recently split from her husband Lamar Odom, had a lot on her mind--beginning with her brand new look.
"I definitely think the fashion industry, and people in general, look at me more now that I've lost weight," Khloe said. "Even on shoots, I would never have options for clothing. There would always be this attention on Kourtney and Kim, but I was too much work for [stylists] or they had nothing in my size. I wasn't even that crazy big!"
"I like to say I don't care what people say about me, but that's not true," she said. "Not wanting to go to certain places because I wonder what will be written about me the next day—I hate that I carry that with me." So much so that she insists she didn't lose weight on purpose--because she didn't think it was possible!
"My home [with Odom] was dark and toxic," she admitted, seemingly referring to his calculated cheating (which she detailed on Howard Stern) and his drug addiction that nearly killed him last October. "At the time, my family didn't know what I was going through. It was the biggest secret I've kept. I just needed a place to go."
She took refuge in the Equinox of Woodland Hills in Los Angeles.
She didn't tell her mother because "she would start asking too many questions"—and she didn't want to pack up to go to a hotel because "the paparazzi would see me and it would look shady"-- so she wound up at the gym. "They had a TV and I could watch The Real Housewives on an elliptical. No one talked to me. I loved that solitude."
Soon, she started noticing a change in her body.
"I never thought about the number," she told Harper's Bazaar. "When I started seeing that I could lose weight—because I just thought my body would never change—I started taking it more seriously and eating better."
