Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian can now add author to their long and varied resumes. Their tome, entitled ‘Kardashian Konfidential,’ is a fun and breezy read that traces their childhood and offers lots of beauty and style tips. It’s also teeming with photos and letters that the girls have penned to each other through the years. It seems their tight sisterly bond is not just for the camera. The trio spoke to PopEater in the middle of a hectic New York book tour.
Kim, you write in ‘Kardashian Konfidential’ how you had a hard time with your body as a young girl.
Kim: Kourtney used to torture me and think I was odd because I had big boobs. I was 11 when I got my period and I started developing. I would sit in the bathtub, take a washcloth, put it under really hot water and put it against my boobs and pray to God, please don’t make my boobs grow any bigger. And Kourtney would be like, “Your boobs are so big and ugly!” She was so mean and then I would have to wear a bra and she would say, “Who wears a bra? That’s so disgusting.” It was so embarrassing.
Do you hate it when people say you’re famous for being famous?
Khloe: I don’t hate it. I just don’t really understand it. I don’t care what people think really, but I do think in my opinion we’ve worked really hard to be where we are. It’s not like we just sit there posing on the red carpet.
Kourtney: I think maybe at first we heard that more often, but people who watch the show see how hard we work and how we have different companies.
Who picks on whom most?
Khloe: I think Kourtney and I team up on Kim a lot.
Kim: I just realized we’re all wearing black and leopard print.
Khloe: Duh. Normally 80 percent of the time it’s me and Kourtney against Kim. We like to keep her level-headed. You might be stunning, little one, but you’re not all that. (Snaps her fingers). We make her cry sometimes. I think it’s a buildup thing though. It’s not that we’re that mean, it’s just like two weeks of picking on her and on the fifteenth day she starts crying.
Kourtney: I think we make her cry once every two years.
Kim: I was just going to say it’s once every two years.
