Khloe Kardashian got REAL about her time caring for Lamar Odom while he was hospitalized. So real, in fact, that she admitted to not showering for an entire week! Eek.
We love Khloe Kardashian, 31, for being the most honest and down-to-earth Kardashian sis, but is her latest confession totally TMI? When caring for ex Lamar Odom, 36, while he was hospitalized after an alleged drug overdose, she was so engrossed with his care that — get this — she didn’t shower for a week!
“Mentally, it took its toll,” Khloe told PEOPLE magazine on Jan. 13 of Lamar’s hospitalization. “But it wasn’t about me. I realized how much it was about [Lamar] so I didn’t think twice about it.” That’s the ever-loyal Khloe that we know and love! But a side of Khloe that many of us haven’t seen? A Khloe that is so immensely stressed she can’t even be bothered to take care of herself.
“Normally, when I’m going through stuff, I have my release of energy or stress at the gym,” Khloe said. “But I literally didn’t leave the room for a month. I wasn’t sleeping as well. I went a week without showering.” Things MUST have been bad if the reality star let her own hygiene slip. After all, Khloe is known for being one of the more responsible and independent Kardashians.
“I was stuck in a room with my thoughts. My mind didn’t have that release. I was like, ‘I can’t breathe!'” Khloe continued. Clearly she was overwhelmed and couldn’t bear to leave the side of her estranged husband. But like they say, there’s always a silver lining.
Khloe revealed in the same interview that she did in fact learn a valuable lesson from this tragedy. “I had to switch gears,” Khloe said. “I was like, ‘I know I’ll get back to the gym. I know I’ll get that release, but for now, what’s my therapy?'”
Slowly learning to take care of herself again, Khloe realized that attending to herself first can be the most beneficial thing to do in the face of despair. “I had to remember that even though something tragic was going on, I still needed a few minutes. I was like, ‘Okay I need to take a shower.’ Just the little things make you feel so much better. I had to learn to [take care] of myself.” Ahmen Khloe!
We couldn’t agree more. Especially because Lamar is on the path to recovery and Khloe has even offered up her home to him so that he can recover properly. Khloe, you deserve some much needed R&R girl!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Khloe’s confession? Was she way TOO honest or just being real like always?
