In the second episode of ‘The Kardashians’, Khloe Kardashian talks about her mental health struggles.
In the second episode that aired on Thursday, Khloe said that she is currently battling anxiety. She also claimed that she almost had a “heart attack” while interacting with the paparazzi.
The aftermath worries Khloe…
Khloe confided in her best friend Malika about the following issue. She said that she fears the aftermath ie. what happens after she has made a public appearance. She admitted that social media makes her overthink situations and that it was fun at the start.
Khloe said, “I have to do James Corden. I just have such anxiety about going. It’s never the interview, it’s more the aftermath. I have to listen to everybody say this, or judge you, or overanalyze something you say, or pick this apart … this s*** used to be fun. Social media used to be fun and silly. There are definitely always trolls and now everything is so critical. The way I look, my situation with Tristan [Thompson]. Is my hair done the right way? What is she doing with that laugh? … I think I’ve gotten to the point where it’s literally safer to stay at home.”
She also said she tried to ignore it but feels it’s easier said than done. Khloe said, she has to think twice before posting her pictures on Instagram. Even though they haven’t been edited she fears what comments might be passed once people see them. “I feel obviously much better talking it through. It’s so easy for people to say, ‘You don’t know them, don’t pay attention. Trust me, I try not to but when I walk down the street and then even paparazzi is heckling at you the same things you’re trying to avoid, it’s so deteriorating on your self-esteem, your confidence, the way you view yourself,” said Khloe.
Her mother Kris Jenner also had something to say about how anxiety has taken a mental toll on her daughter. “I think anytime that you’re in the public eye, it just opens you up for scrutiny and criticism about every little thing. And I think with Khloé, she does internalize that and I think you really have to have tough, thick skin, which all of us have, but every once in a while, our emotions just get the best of us” said Kris.
The Late Late Show host had something to say…
Moments before Khloe was about to go on The Late Late Show, host James Corden met with Khloe in her dressing room. He consoled her and cheered up for the show. “We all have to remember, none of these things are about you. Anybody who’s like that, it’s only a representation and a reflection of them. That’s it, it’s nothing to do with you. How could anyone judge anyone when they don’t even know them? So you become something else in their mind… it doesn’t matter. These words only exist if I give them any power. They only exist to me if I allow them to penetrate my core. Look, you’re drinking champagne at 4 p.m. on a Monday and you’re at work. We’ve won!” he said.
Later Khloe appeared very confident and very energetic.
