Khloe Kardashian finds herself in the news for a change.  The sister of Kim, star of Keeping up with the Kardashians, announced that she plans to slim down and probably lose several pounds for an upcoming appearance at the Playboy mansion on casino night.  Yet the 24-year-old dispelled rumors that the reason behind her decision to shape up is a case of sibling rivalry, to compete with her more statuesque sisters, Kim and Kourtney.  In fact, In Touch reports that Khloe's big sisters are actually helping her in the transformation.

“On the second season of Keeping up with the Kardashians, I had gained weight and it really showed on television …  After a breakup in the middle of April, I decided to change my diet.  Kim encourages me to work out and Kourtney is healthy about food.  It's empowering,” she said.

With Kim's perpetual appearance on tabloids, Khloe said she didn't want to be known as “the funny sister.”  However, she said she knew her boundaries and will never be “scary-skinny” because she is still happy who she is.

“I want to be the sexy, smart and funny sister! I'm much taller than my sisters,” says Khloe, who reportedly shed off a total of 12 pounds already.  “They're proportioned, but people don't realize they're petite.”

For her part, Kim's appearance on Playboy made a big splash.  But recently, socialite and fellow reality TV star Paris Hilton called Kim's ass “gross” on a Las Vegas morning talk show.  “[Kim's ass] reminds me of cottage cheese inside of a big trash bag,” says the socialite.  Paris apologized the next day and said it was just a “stupid joke.”  Kim subsequently accepted the apology while mentioning that Paris and she are actually childhood friends. Keeping up with the Kardashians just wrapped up its second season.
