Khloe Kardashian Takes Some Credit for Kim Kardashian's Twitter Rant Against Bette Midler
By Rachel McRady
Turns out, it wasn’t Kanye West at the reins of Kim Kardashian’s recent Twitter rant against Bette Midler, Chloe Grace Moretz and more. In Wednesday night’s Kocktails With Khloe, the show’s host took some credit for her older sister’s actions.
When she asked by her celebrity guests what their take on Kim’s nude selfie was, most replied that they liked the reality star’s confidence and willingness to show off her body. But actress Holly Robinson Peete did have one problem with the exchange.
“I felt like I didn’t want her to clap back,” Peete said of Kim’s Twitter beef with the stars who criticized her. “Tell me, was your brother-in-law writing those tweets?”
But Khloe insisted that Twitter enthusiast Kanye was not responsible.
“No!” she said. “She was doing it. I was on the phone with her, and I probably wasn’t the best influence.”
While Khloe might have her sister’s ear in online feuds, the Strong Looks Better Naked author is keeping her distance from the FX event series, The People v O.J. Simpson, that chronicles her late father, Robert Kardashian.
“Kim and Kourtney watch it religiously,” said Khloe, who has admitted to watching bit of the show herself. “My sisters went to Justin Bieber’s concert, and he was like ‘Tell me, what happened in Episode 6.’ It’s so crazy for a younger generation, even my little sisters don’t know about that trial to this degree.”
The series, which stars David Schwimmer as her dad and Selma Blair as Kris Jenner, wrapped earlier this month to critical acclaim.
While she stayed neutral on her opinion of Ryan Murphy drama, Khloe didn’t hesitate to call out Shape magazine for their recently cover shoot with her.
“Love Shape mag & I’m thrilled to be on the cover but we took so many better cover images, “ she tweeted after the shoot was released on Tuesday. “I wish they would have used the other set ups over that simple grey look.”
But she didn’t let the photo choice derail her from being proud of the accomplishment, adding, “But how f**king crazy that me… ‘The fat one’ is on the cover of Shape!!! Ha!”
