For the stars of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, living in the spotlight seems so easy. But it doesn’t exactly apply to all of them, as we find out how difficult it is to face pressure from the media when it comes to body image.
We last saw the Kardashian family in a cold war, as Kourtney ignored momager Kris when she didn’t come to her first ever cover shoot. She thinks their mother is playing favorites, but it’s only a conflict in schedule that kept her from attending. Meanwhile, Rob and his girlfriend Adrienne encountered problems with moving in together.
On tomorrow’s episode, “I’d Rather Go Naked…Or Shopping,” Khloe deals with harsh criticisms regarding her appearance. Her stepfather, Bruce Jenner, isn’t much help, as he tells Khloe to lose some weight. After posing nude for PETA’s “I’d Rather Go Naked” anti-fur campaign, she finds it painful to confront her insecurities as the press continues to watch her every move.
It’s getting more grueling for Khloe, as she grew up being constantly compared to her sisters. While she doesn’t show how much her looks really matter to her, the situation is different this time. Working with PETA and seeing the results have made her far from jubilant. She might be taking part in something she’s passionate about, but she couldn’t help getting overwhelmed by self-doubt.
On this link, you can watch a clip of the new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. There are plenty of tears and fears, making us wonder whether or not Khloe will surpass this issue unscathed.
Also on tomorrow’s episode, the family has noticed that Kim’s obsessive shopping habit has gotten the best of her. They try to intervene, but things don’t go as well as they expected.
Don’t forget to catch the new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians tomorrow night at 10pm on E!.
