Why Khloé Kardashian Said Kourtney Kardashian Made Her Feel Like a ‘Beached Whale’
Khloé Kardashian often speaks about her weight and how it affected her relationships with the Kardashian-Jenner family. Keeping Up With the Kardashians viewers saw her change her diet and exercise routine after her divorce from Lamar Odom.
The Revenge Body host and Kourtney Kardashian got into a dispute regarding her physical appearance in 2016.
Khloé Kardashian referred to herself as ‘the chubby one’ when compared to Kourtney Kardashian
TV watchers met the Kar-Jenners back in Oct. 2007. During that time, KUWTK aired its pilot episode on E! Soon, some fans fell in love with Kardashian West and her large tribe. The series made Kardashian, Kourtney, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Rob Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and Caitlyn Jenner stars.
Unfortunately, their newfound fame didn’t always positively help Kardashian. The mother of one admitted that the public’s comments about her weight negatively affected Kardashian. In her Instagram post, the mother of one said she was astonished by not being the “chubby one” anymore.
“If you were to ask me five years ago if I ever saw myself being completely in love with fitness and health,” Kardashian wrote.
“That I would be an inspiration to many others,” she continued. “That I would be the push that others needed to find their way. I would’ve laughed in your face. Me? The chubby one? No way! But now I can’t see myself ever stopping!”
The reason Khloé Kardashian described herself as a ‘beached whale’ next to Kourtney Kardashian
During her 2014 separation from Odom, Kardashian shared her weight loss progress on social media. True Thompson’s mom wrote on Instagram that her secret is to “make small goals” and “reward yourself” once the goal manifests. Additionally, she routinely works out and makes healthier food choices.
In 2016, Kardashian and Kourtney attended the Angel Ball together. While driving to the event, the Poosh CEO recorded herself and Kardashian on Snapchat. According to The Sun, the Khloé and Lamar alum became upset with her older sister because of the recording. When she asked Kourtney to stop filming, Kardashian explained that she didn’t like how her body looked when she’s sitting down.
“Koko does not want me to videotape her right now,” Kourtney said to the camera.
“No, because I’m like a f*cking beached whale, and you’re making it more difficult,” Kardashian replied to her sister.
The ‘KUTWK’ star recently spoke out when an unedited photo leaked online
Since losing weight several years ago, Kardashian continues to address her body on social media. In April 2021, the reality star made headlines for attempting to get an unretouched bikini photo taken off of the Internet. Although she received positive feedback for the picture, Kardashian said on Instagram Live that the image wasn’t flattering and she felt entitled to have it removed. Additionally, she used the scandal to release a statement on Instagram and Twitter about having body image issues due to the public’s opinions.
“In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule, and judgment my entire life to be perfect and meet other’s standards of how I should look has been too much to bear,” reads part of Kardashian’s statement.
“‘Khloé is the fat sister,’” she continued. ‘“Khloé is the ugly sister.’ ‘Her dad must not be her real dad because she looks so different’ ‘The only way she could have lost that weight must have been from surgery.’ Shall I continue?”
Following her post, most of Kardashian’s sisters left supportive comments on Instagram. However, Kourtney has yet to respond publicly.
