Find Out the Shameful Way the Fashion Industry Shunned Khloé Kardashian

The reality star reveals what goes on behind-the-scenes.

Published June 14, 2016

Khloé Kardashian is in the best shape of her life — and rarely misses a chance to flaunt the results of all the hard work she's putting into her body. And who can blame her? The reality star has had a crazy year and deserves to enjoy the fruits of her labor.

But while everybody is fawning over Khloé's flat abs, toned legs and slimmed-down physique now, the Kardashian sister says that she's experienced plenty of body shaming from industry insiders during her years in the spotlight.

The blonde bombshell opens up to Harper's Bazaar about some of the hurtful things she's heard people say to her face — and behind her back — over the years.

"I definitely think the fashion industry, and people in general, look at me more now that I've lost weight," she told the publication. "Even on shoots, I would never have options for clothing. There would always be this attention on Kourtney [Kardashian] and Kim [Kardashian], but I was too much work for [stylists] or they had nothing in my size. I wasn't even that crazy big!"

She even says that some stylists refused to work with her all together. "People actually said, 'I just can't work with you' — because I was too big. That always hurt my feelings, of course." Now, she says, those are the first calls she ignores. "I'm just like, 'F--k you. I'm not going to reward your bad behavior!'"

Khloé also talks about what prompted her fitness obsession in the first place — not the haters, but the need for an escape from her personal problems at the peak of Odom's drug use during their marriage. "My home [with Odom] was dark and toxic," she admitted. "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."

Looks like Khloé really turned her life around when she hit rock bottom, and is an inspiration to so many women now.
