VIDEO: Kris Jenner Says Kardashians Used To Be “Chubby” And “Awkward”
The Kardashian sisters were not always the glamorous, magazine cover-ready stars Kim, Khloe and Kourtney seem to be today. In fact, Kris Jenner says her kids used to be quite “chubby” back in the day.
During an appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show,” Jenner was asked how she deals with people talking about her children’s bodies, in the wake of son Rob‘s weight gain and Kim’s pregnancy weight gain and loss. “Listen, everybody’s a critic,” replied the matriarch, “and I think that putting the girls and Rob now on magazines definitely sells them, but I taught the kids a long time ago that it really starts with when they were younger and how I’ve really tried to raise strong daughters and give them a sense of self-esteem, really good self-esteem.”
Jenner went on, “They grew up, and when they went through puberty, they were just like any other kid where it was that real chubby stage. Everybody went through it. They had braces. They were awkward. Rob was chubby. And that’s when the kids need you the most.. That’s when I think instilled a lot of stuff about how to feel good about yourself.
“And we’re a close family, we’re always encouraging one another,” said Jenner. “Because you do get a lot of criticism when you’re in the public eye constantly, whether you want it or not. So I think just to be a real supportive parent and tell them how much they’re loved and how beautiful they are on the inside.”
Jenner also spoke about her separation from Bruce Jenner, and how she deals with tabloid rumors.
