Khloe Kardashian thinks it’s “disgusting” that her brother, Rob, and her BFF, Malika, are hooking up. But would she have had the same reaction if Malika had talked to her about it first?

How would YOU feel if your bestie hooked up with your brother, BFFs? Chances are you’re not going to be pleased with the situation — even if you TRY to tell yourself “She’ll be my sister-in-law one day!”

Yeah, we all know that isn’t usually the case. What starts off as attraction and familiarity turns into one big ass awkward situation when, after your worlds collide, your flesh and blood and best friend forever break up. That’s Khloe Kardashian‘s current dilemma: her pal, Malika, and younger bro Rob are doing the deed!

“I’ve always like Rob,” Malika tells Khloe in a sneak preview for the upcoming episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. “He looks great naked.”

Khloe‘s response? “You are disgusting.”

Although I sense that Khloe, 26,  isn’t seriously repulsed by the idea, she may be an exception to the rule. You should try to make it a habit never to mess with your best friend’s family. Brothers are untouchable — and older sisters especially (I should know, I AM one!) are very protective and specific about who their siblings should date.

But if you just can’t keep your paws away from your BFF’s bro, you need to talk to her about your feelings first. Clue her in, let her CAREFULLY know what you’ve been thinking. She’ll probably try to tell you it’s a bad idea — and maybe you should listen! How awkward are you going to feel when you run into him with a new girlfriend at a family function a year or two later? Not only that, you’ll have no one to complain to — your bestie isn’t going to have ANY sympathy for your situation!

Or maybe – just maybe – you’ll be play the part of sister-in-law AND best friend one day. Happy pipe dreaming!
