Kim Kardashian Helped Khloe Kardashian Shut Down Body Shamers

Kim Kardashian gave her sister Khloe a few pointers on how to
boost her confidence – and maybe break the internet, too.

In an upcoming episode of “Keeping Up With the
Kardashians,” Khloe reveals that she was initially skeptical about
participating in her now-famous photo shoot for Complex magazine.

The 31-year-old tells Kim
that her insecurity stems in part from the comments she gets regarding her past
weight struggles.

“Someone said to me the other day, ‘I looked at old
pictures of you’ and they were like, ‘You were so big,'” Khloe says in a
sneak preview clip released on Wednesday. “I was like, ‘Why are you
looking at old pictures of me?'”

Apparently, it wasn’t the first time she’s had that
conversation.

“Guys
and girls say this to me,” Khloe tells Kim. “It’s like a known thing,
how fat I was.”

Khloe has
shed more than 30 pounds in the last year, thanks to a dedicated exercise
regime she’s kept well-documented on social media. Despite her trim new
physique, however, she still had second thoughts about Kim’s plan to silence
the body shamers once and for all.

“If you
just do so many photo shoots, it’ll replace all the bad ones,” Kim
advises. “What do you want out there on the internet? Don’t you want to
replace every bad image of you?”

Kim then
reveals she’s pulled a few strings to help Khloe land a high-profile gig.

“They
want you to do the cover of Complex. I got you the cover of Complex. Don’t turn
this down,” she tells a hesitant Khloe.

“Those
people have, like, the best bodies,” Khloe says. “I can’t do
that.”

Khloe
explains her reluctance in a separate confessional segment, telling viewers
that she and Kim don’t have the same philosophy about stripping down for the
camera.

“I
appreciate the effort, but I am not like you, Kim,” Khloe says. “I’m
not as comfortable baring my naked ass on the cover of a magazine. It just…it’s
weird to do that.”

She did
eventually change her mind, of course – Khloe’s sexy Complex spread hit newsstands
in July, and the experience may have helped conquer her fears once and for all.

The
“Kocktails With Khloe” host later posed nude for the cover of her new
memoir, “Strong Looks Better Naked.”

Season 11 of
“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” premieres Sunday, Nov. 15 at 9 PM
