Khloe Kardashian -

Khloé Kardashian Odom
By Maggie Voelker

The baby Kardashian sister may be the youngest, but that certainly doesn’t mean she’ll be outshined by her two older sisters, Kim and Kourtney. This bombshell is the wifey of Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Lamar Odom and is best known for her appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami and Khloé & Lamar.  In addition to her television success, Khloé is a regular radio personality with her own show, Khloé After Dark, and co-owner of the clothing boutique D-A-S-H.

Khloé 101

Baby K, daughter of the late Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner, is well known for her tall, curvy figure and sometimes raunchy sense of humor. The now-celebutante had humble beginnings and a sometimes difficult childhood. Reeling from her parent’s divorce and then her father’s untimely death, Khloé suffered from an eating disorder and subsequent weight gain as a young woman. With the help of her sisters, Khloé managed to regain her health and explore her fashion interests. In 2006, the sisters founded D-A-S-H, a clothing and accessories boutique, in Calabasas, CA. Today, D-A-S-H has stores in Miami and SoHo too.

That same year, Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered and was an instant success. The show primarily focused on Kim’s life at that time, but soon the entire family shared the spotlight. Khole’s fame grew and she garnered the camera’s attention with her wit and wild antics, sometimes to her dismay as a drinking and driving incident was blown up by the media in 2007.

In 2009, Khloé met Lamar Odom at a party she threw for LA Lakers player, Ron Artest. Lamar and Khloé hit it off and quickly tied the wedding in September of that year—exactly one month after their meeting. The couple is still together today, despite the influx of camera crews in their home filming the hit reality show, Khloé and Lamar.

Why Fans Love Khlo (And You Should Too)

Through constantly in the limelight, Khloé has maintained an air of normalcy about her. Many fans find Khloé to be the most relatable K-dash sister and appreciate her refusal to adapt to Hollywood standards for body type. Khloé isn’t stick thin…and thank goodness, neither is the majority of America. She admits that dealing with the comparisons between herself and her sisters is difficult. They’re 5’ and 5’2” while Khloé towers over them at 5’10”. You better believe she’s not going to weigh 100 pounds! It’s hard to imagine the pressure Khloé must feel to look “similar” to her sisters and to conform to the celebrity body. Kudos to her for remaining healthy and absolutely gorgeous!

Khloé’s eclectic fashion sense is another reason to love this fabulous Kardashian sister. In keeping with her daring personality, Khloé isn’t afraid to take risks in her style. She’s worn some crazy pieces and somehow makes them work! More power to this fashionista!

While the Kardashian sisters are all quirky and entertaining, Khloé takes the cake with her wild sense of humor. She is obviously intelligent as evidenced in her brutally sarcastic humor. You can always count on Khloé for the comment that eases a tense moment or that livens up a stuffy situation. Fans love this aspect of her personality. It makes her seem down to earth—like one of us—definitely someone we’d want to hang out with for a day!
Behind that sometimes stinging sense of humor is a good heart. Khloé is a true family girl and always puts the Kardashian, Jenner, and Odom families first. She’s super supportive of her hubby and can always be found in the Lakers bleachers cheering on Lamar. Khloé doesn’t let her busy schedule interfere with family dinners or trips, and can be counted on by her friends and family for advice and support. Extremely loyal, she’s definitely someone you’d want in your corner!

So before you hate on this celebutante, remember that Khloé is actually not all that different than us. She has many of the same struggles—body image, competition with family and a crazy schedule—and holds many of the same things dear to her heart—family, friends, and doing what she’s passionate about. Khloé, you’ve got a fan in this writer!
