During a recent return to Dubai, the reality star talked Keeping Up With the Kardashians, working out and Kanye West.
Welcome back to Dubai, Khloe. What have you been up to?
I was only here for 16 hours last time, so it’s kind of like my first time here because I get to actually see Dubai and not just the mall. A friend of mine had a little party on the beach for us; it was really casual and we had a bonfire, it was fun. It was beautiful and so surreal, it’s such a blessing to be here.
You hit the gym at 4am after landing. What keeps you motivated to work out?
Well that was out of jetlag, it doesn’t happen in LA. My trainer (Gunner Peterson) was like ‘You are killing it!’ but I cheated and had a nap midday. For me working out is not so much about losing weight, obviously that’s the end result but even if I’m at my goal weight, it does so much for me stress-wise and mentally. I just really enjoy it, but right now I am still trying to lose some weight.
Your brother Rob is trying to lose weight. Do you work out together?
We do if we can. He doesn’t like all the paparazzi so he doesn’t really go with me that much because they follow me everywhere. I mean no-one wants to be photographed red and sweaty after the gym, and then people will talk about my hair. I’m like ‘[get lost]!’ You go to the gym and get your picture taken and see if you like it.
You always do the pit and the peak on Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK). What has been the pit and the peak of 2014?
I guess that the peak of my year is that I just moved into my new house and my brother Rob lives with me, and I’m so excited about that. I don’t really think I have a pit, I feel like even when bad things happen, it’s for a reason and it always turns positive later. So that’s a good thing.
You seem very protective of your siblings and family. Are you really?
We really are each others’ biggest cheerleaders. I’m still really protective of Kendall and Kylie. I still act like I’m their mother. I just gave them a key to my house and I said ‘Kylie when I’m gone, don’t do anything wild at my house’. They are always going to be like my babies, I don’t care how old they are. Right now it’s really cool being an aunt. I live a block away from Kourtney, so Mason and Penelope will walk to my house with her and I will just be looking out my kitchen window and they’ll be swimming in my fountain. They are so cute, I love that.
Kim and Kanye both love fashion. Does Kanye take long to get dressed?
Kim for sure takes longer to get ready. Kanye is a man who knows what he wants. He’s every word an artist and it’s inspiring.
What’s next for you?
Kourtney and I were just in the Hamptons for four months filming our ‘Take’ series which airs in November and we just started filming season ten of KUWTK too.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs Sundays at 3.05pm on E! Entertainment HD.
