Khloe Kardashian and gal pal Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi weren’t always quite so chummy, Snooki revealed on the most recent episode of Kocktails with Khloe. According to the Jersey Shore alum, the first time she met Khloe, Kardashian actually insulted her.
In a clip from an upcoming episode of Kocktails With Khloe, Snooki shared a funny story about the first time she met Kardashian in 2010. As a friend of Kim’s, Snooki was invited to the Kardashian home and was excited to meet Khloe, who Polizzi admitted she “was obsessed with” at the time.
Telling Kim “you’re cool but I really want to meet Khloe,” Kardashian took the reality star to meet her sister.
Khloe, however, was not so thrilled to meet Snooki. Although Kardashian admits she does not recall the event, Polizzi confessed that after realizing the Jersey Shore star was in her home, Khloe “looked [Snooki] up and down,” and then, according to the Nicole, Khloe blurted out “[w]hat the f**k is she doing here? Are you kidding me, Kim?”
A heartbroken Snooki “didn’t know what to say,” so she just left, adding, “I was like, ‘Good night’…I was so upset.” Although embarrassed, Khloe was apologetic to her friend, and could not recall the incident.
On the episode of Kocktails with Khloe, Kardashian apologized for her rude behavior, telling her friend “First of all, I don’t know why Khlo-Money came out at that moment — Khlo-Money is my alter ego!”
Admitting that “maybe I was jealous that you were getting more attention,” Khloe also said that she had “no idea” why she was so rude to Snooki. Of course, this was many years ago, and the two women are now good friends.
Khloe also stuck her foot in her mouth on a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in which she claims that “being fat really saved me from being a whore in life.”
During one scene from the episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim called Khloe a nickname from their teen years, “Khloe Blowie.” According to Khloe, however, the nickname is a misnomer. Pointing out that it “wasn’t my name in high school,” but rather belonged to another girl named Khloe, Kardashian recalled that “Rob told my dad that my nickname was ‘Khloe Blowie’ and I was like, ‘That was not me, I’m the fat one, who’s gonna want blow jobs from the fat girl?'”
During the episode, Khloe also mentioned her weight impacted her marriage. According to Kardashian, she has respect for her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, because “he still liked me fat.”
“That’s a big deal when a cool person likes you at your worst,” Khloe added.
The statement has sparked controversy, since the seemingly disparaging comments contradict Kardashian’s teachings in her current book Strong Looks Better Naked. In the book, Khloe Kardashian addresses body issues and tries to promote a positive body image regardless of size. For years, Khloe was overweight but worked hard to become slimmer after her struggling marriage with Lamar Odom came to an end.
Although estranged from Odom, Khloe has continued to remain married to him while he recovers. According to Kim Kardashian, Khloe made the controversial decision since “Lamar isn’t really in a place where he can make these important decisions.”
Strong Looks Better Naked by Khloe Kardashian has been lauded for its positive message about body image. Although some fans thought Khloe’s comment about her weight as a teenager was negative, other fans think Kardashian hit the nail on the proverbial head, telling Khloe that she’s “an angel” for admitting the truth.
