Just days after the announcement of her show Kocktails with Khloe‘s cancellation, Khloe Kardashian’s Shape magazine cover dropped showing off how a great attitude (and bod) can be the best revenge. Since beginning her fitness journey in 2015, the star has dropped 35 lbs, and says it’s changed her life in more ways than she expected.
In the cover story interview, Khloé talks about how she’s always loved her curves, but now, she feels so proud of all that she’s accomplished:
“I love my shape because I’ve earned every curve. I work hard in the gym to get it. But I also loved my shape before, when I was even curvier. I was always incredibly comfortable in my skin. Everybody else saw me in a different way, but I didn’t see myself that way. I still wore bodycon dresses back then; I didn’t cover up with a muumuu. Today I put in the work to get the curves I have and every bit of firmness. I feel empowered and badass that I was able to accomplish everything I have.”
Her decision to get fit came with her breakup with ex (ish) husband Lamar Odom. She even discussed how his collapse and hospitalization after a wild weekend at a Vegas brothel affected her physical well-being, saying in the interview that she stopped exercising when she went to his side to help him recoup, which caused her anxiety and stress outside that already caused by Lamar’s incident.
The cover itself (which we think is super sexy, btw) seems to be rubbing Koko the wrong way. She tweeted shortly after the mag dropped that she wishes they’d gone with a different cover than the “simple grey one.” But let’s be honest, Khloe’s curves would probably look good in a paper bag. It’s great to see a celebrity loving themselves, even if they don’t fit into that Hollywood mold.
