If I could pick a Kardashian sister to hang out with, hands-down it would be Khloe. She's funny and saucy and doesn't take herself too seriously. We'd have a blast no doubt (text me, Khloe!). That's why I'm concerned by her new plan to lose a bunch of weight and get into a bikini by June.
I know her weight has been a "lifetime struggle" for her, and it does sound like she has a healthy plan. She told People:
I'm in a working-out process, and I'm definitely back on trying to lose weight. It's about being healthy, though. I believe in working out, eating well ... I do everything in moderation. I don't like people who do extreme, crazy diets.
So that's good, but still, the bottom line is: We need a chubby Kardashian sister.
Kim can bitch and moan about her extra poundage all she wants, but she'll never make us feel better about ourselves. She has men dropping at her feet, Prince pandering to her, and ballers galore clamoring to get with her and her curves. So her weight "struggles" just make us want to trip her.
Kourtney is gorgeous, even after a baby. We feel sorry for her because of her asshole of a husband, Scott Disick, but her body is always going to be tiny. Good for her, but not so good for making most of us relate. And don't even get me started on the teen sisters -- Kylie and Kendall Jenner -- they're long and lean and getting more gorgeous by the second.
So that leaves us with Khloe -- the sister whose heft casts a shadow over the others, a warm shadow that makes us like her and their shows just a little bit more. It's not that we want to see Khloe fail if a bikini will make her happy, it's just that we'll miss the old Khloe. The one who makes us smile and laugh and feel like perhaps we could fit into that family too. For some reason, skinny people just aren't as funny and warm -- maybe because they're hungry -- and we'd hate to see her lose those qualities.
If it was for her health, that would be one thing, but she appears to be at a healthy weight and has never indicated a medical need to drop pounds. And honestly, she looks great as she is! If it's really just for the bikini or because she's sick of being "the ugly sister," then I hope she reconsiders ... or gets pregnant before that happens.
Do you want to see Khloe Kardashian sport a bikini or would you rather she stay at her current weight?
