The untold truth of Khloé Kardashian

Do you even remember a time before the Kardashians? It's certainly hard to imagine a day in which a member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan isn't dominating headlines or breaking the internet. Though her sister, Kim Kardashian West, is perhaps the most talked-about Kardashian sibling, Khloé Kardashian has no plans to live her life in her sister's shadow. Once appallingly known as the "fat Kardashian sister" by her haters, this girl has completely taken control of her life — and boy, is she doing it well. 

Since Keeping Up with the Kardashians first premiered in October 2007, Khloé Kardashian has become a New York Times bestselling author, founded her own designer denim company, and inspired millions with her dramatic "revenge body" transformation — even scoring her own show (aptly titled Revenge Body) in which she helps those struggling with health and body image issues find the motivation and confidence they need to completely change their lives. Here's the untold truth of the inspirational woman who is so much more than just another reality television star.

"I didn't realize I was the 'fat' sister"

The Kardashians' pop culture presence is pretty much inescapable. Reality television's royal family is constantly making headlines for their relationships, their pregnancies, entrepreneurial efforts, insane dieting and workout regimens, and, of course, their next-level selfie skills. No one is more aware of the Kardashians' ever-present spotlight than — you guessed it — the Kardashians. 

Unfortunately, as Khloé Kardashian knows all too well, the spotlight doesn't always hit your most flattering angles. The youngest Kardashian sister was, for years, labeled by the media as "the fat Kardashian sister," much to her own surprise. "Right before [Keeping Up with the Kardashians] started, I thought I was in good shape, but I guess not good enough for Hollywood's eyes," Khloé told People. "I didn't realize I was the 'fat' sister until [...] the media started saying that about me."

Though the reality star says she never considered herself to be fat, she does admit that she lived a less healthy lifestyle in the past — a far cry from the #fitnessgoals life she's living now!

She was the "annoying little sister"

Don't let those long legs fool you! Khloé is actually the littlest Kardashian sister. Born on June 27, 1984, Khloé Kardashian is both the tallest and the youngest sis — trailing Kim Kardashian West by four years and Kourtney Kardashian by five. And because she's nothing if not immensely self-aware, Khloé Kardashian openly admits to being that "annoying little sister" to her older siblings. 

In a blog post titled "Confession: I was the Annoying Little Sister," Khloé dished to fans that she wasn't actually all that close to Kim and Kourtney as a kid, despite the three sisters' total BFF status today. Instead, the youngest Kardashian sister often felt like the odd one out — and the super slight age difference between Kim and Kourtney certainly didn't help matters. "[They] were raised somewhat like twins," Khloé writes. 

Nevertheless, she persisted. According to Khloé, she would "always do anything to get [Kim and Kourtney's] attention back then." It's safe to say she has the attention of her older sisters these days — as well as the attention of her millions of adoring fans. 

Her love life seems to be cursed

"Wise men say only fools rush in…" But, honestly — who can even help themselves? 

No matter where you are in your life, you've probably experienced at least one soul-crushing heartbreak. And if not — prepare yourself. Loving and losing are both parts of a balanced breakfast — err, life. No one is immune to the lovesick blues — not even a gorgeous bonafide celebrity like Khloé Kardashian. 

The Revenge Body creator has a knack for becoming one-half of a relationship that just seems doomed from the very beginning. Kardashian wed NBA star Lamar Odom in 2009, and stuck out four years of marriage (and yet another reality show) before the couple called it quits in 2013. She was linked to The Game, French Montana, and the Houston Rocket's most memeable player, James Harden, before settling down with Tristan Thompson — star player for the Cleveland Cavaliers and the father of Khloé's first baby.

Unfortunately, rumors that Thompson had cheated on a very pregnant Khloé Kardashian started swirling in April 2018, complete with an (incredibly blurry) video that appears to show Thompson kissing another woman. What even is love anymore?

You can have her revenge body, too... if you give up these delicious foods

Who else still isn't over this girl's absolutely insane body transformation? If you're raising your hand right now, rest assured that you aren't alone. Khloé Kardashian has always been a total bombshell, but her inspirational revenge body makeover is the reason for the fitness goals hashtag. And the girl works hard for the body she has — just ask this poor Women's Health reporter who braved Kardashian's revenge body workout regimen for a whole two weeks! 

But don't put on your running shoes just yet. If you want a revenge bod like Khloé's, you can get a head start by taking a stroll to your kitchen and throwing away everything you know and love. According to Kardashian's personal nutritionist, Dr. Philip Goglia (who spoke to said Women's Health reporter), a proper revenge body diet should consist of lean, red meats, fatty fish, oat flakes, and lentils — no bread, cakes, or muffins allowed. Some good things are worth working (and having bread withdrawals) for, right?!

Khloe's two simple hacks to get started with self love

Self love is so very important. Take it from Khloé Kardashian, a woman who's experienced some pretty traumatic, widely publicized heartbreak — there's no one in the world who can love you better than, well, you. The Strong Looks Better Naked author's personal blog is basically a giant confetti explosion of helpful hacks and sage advice on how you should treat yourself, body and soul. From fitness to pampering, Kardashian definitely seems to have herself covered in the self love department — and lucky for her fans, she's an open book! 

Khloé's top two tips for showing yourself some love are too simple not to try, like, immediately. First on her list — be mindful at mealtime. "Too often we eat our meals while multitasking, thus denying ourselves the pure experience of a nourishing meal," Kardashian writes on her blog. "Allow yourself to indulge in a meal without any distractions."

Next? Give yourself a pat on the back. "I think it's really important to keep track of your accomplishments and how far you've come, instead of focusing on where you are not in life," says Kardashian. Thanks for the reminder, girl!

Her time as an aunt has been the best training ever

Is there an award for being the busiest auntie ever? Because if so, Khloé Kardashian just might be the most deserving nominee. 

Though she announced that she was pregnant with her first child on December 20, 2017 with a simple, black and white photograph of her growing belling and classic Calvin Klein wear, Khloé Kardashian has spent many years playing aunt to her sisters' kids — a seemingly ever-growing roster. Between Kourtney's three kiddos with ex Scott Disick, Kim and Kanye's three uniquely named tots, and Kylie Jenner's baby girl, Stormi, Khloé Kardashian has certainly seen her share of dirty diapers, temper tantrums, and all the beautiful mess that motherhood has to offer. 

In a blog post on her website, the reality star revealed how being an aunt to her sisters' kids has helped prepped her for the adventure of being a mom. "When it comes to being around kids, I feel like I've gotten some good experience thanks to my nieces and nephews," the star wrote. "I have incredible patience and love for children, no matter what."

She needs everything in her life to be organized... even her men!

Keeping Up with the Kardashians may have served as a welcome jumpstart, but the Kardashian sisters have absolutely taken their fame by the reigns, consistently capitalizing on their success, while also improving themselves and their brands however they can. These women know what they're doing, so when one of them shares a helpful hint, you'd better listen up!

Khloé Kardashian's favorite lifestyle hack? Organization! The star has upwards of 30 blog posts on her website featuring her best tips for living your best, most organized life. It seems the youngest Kardashian sister appreciates the art of organization throughout all areas of her life — from her mini fridge to her man!  "When you keep an organized and clean life, it definitely helps de-stress in the life areas that just don't need the headache," Kardashian wrote in a blog post titled "I Love Myself an Organized Man."

The side-hustle is real

Love them or hate them, you've got to admit that the Kardashians have found the key to lasting success. Though some Kardashian critics are quick to dismiss the mega-successful reality television clan as "famous for nothing," the famous family probably has a hard time hearing haters over the sounds of their booming businesses. The Kardashian-Jenners are famous for their side hustles, including Kylie Jenner's Lip Kit, Kim Kardashian West's Kimojis, and each sister's subscription-based blog. Make that money!

But Kim and Kylie aren't the only sisters out there doin' it for themselves. Khloé Kardashian has been busy making some serious entrepreneurial moves — becoming a best-selling author and a fashion designer in the span of just a few years. Released in fall 2015, the youngest Kardashian sister's first book, Strong Looks Better Naked, found itself on The New York Times bestsellers list. Just one year later, she launched her designer denim company, Good American, to rave reviews. Never underestimate the power of a Kardashian with a dream. 

Whoa, baby!

Talk about a rollercoaster of emotions! On April 12, 2018 — just days after her basketball beau, Tristan Thompson, was allegedly kissing another woman — Khloé Kardashian gave birth to her first child, a baby girl. 

TMZ reported that Kim, Kourtney, Mama Kris, and Khloé's longtime BFF Malika were all by her side throughout the entire process. While that's not exactly surprising (Kardashians who flock together, stay together), the real shocker came via reports that Tristan Thompson was allowed in the delivery room. You know, the same Thompson who allegedly cheated on Khloé throughout her pregnancy, including the week she was due to give birth to their kid. Wowza. 

In true Kardashian style, the newest addition to the family had not yet been given a name at the time of her birth — at least, not one that Khloé was ready to release. And as any pop culture fan knows, Kylie Jenner certainly left some big (if poorly timed) shoes to fill in that department. Hopefully Khloé works well under pressure!
