Reality stars Kim Kardashian & her sister Khloe Kardashian rocked an all white dress for the cover of Prestige Hong Kong Magazine’s September 2012 issue.
The Kardashian sister’s chatted with the mag about how fame affects their relationships, wanting kids with the public reading into their lives, spending time with family members, business ventures and more.
Check out the highlights below:
We had our stores way before our show, and after our show we’re still going to have our stores. Seeing that grow is amazing. We started in a little 800-square-foot store in Calabasas [in California’s San Fernando Valley], and now we have three stores. And the new one – now that we have it, we’re like, “We can’t believe we thought the old one was so cool, because this is like a real store.” The Calabasas one was the biggest accomplishment for us at the time, and it shows how we’ve evolved as businesswomen too, because we didn’t know any better.
I agree – Sears.
On fame affecting their relationships with family members?
Kim: I think it actually helps them, because it kind of forces us to hang out more and be together more – because we do have so much going on in our own personal lives, so when we’re filming, that’s family time. And we love it.
Khloe: Typically when you’re getting older – Kourtney has two babies now, and I’m married, and Kim is off living her crazy life – typically brothers and sisters aren’t together this much. But when we film it forces us to be, which we appreciate. It allows us to see everyone grow up, like our little sisters [Kendall and Kylie Jenner]. It’s a really rewarding feeling for us and we like it…so far!
On their busy schedules, and making time for their family vacations?
Kim: As a kid growing up, my dad made it a rule to have family dinner every single night. We’ve grown up that way, and that’s what we’re used to. Kourtney said to us, “I just made a rule in my house: we’re starting with two-nights-a-week family dinner.” And that’s amazing. That’s what I want. When anyone has kids, that’s what we will make as a tradition and a rule in our house – family dinner every single night. We carry that into our family life, all of us together. It used to be every Sunday we had a barbecue at my mom’s house, and as we got busy it became more whenever we could, but we make sure we make it a priority.
: We make an effort. It’s really easy to get lost in your own personal world and work world, so if you don’t make it a priority it’s easy to get sidetracked. We try to take a family vacation or have a dinner. We make an effort. All of us do.
On giving advice to women who are trying to balance a relationship and career?
Khloe: To me, it’s about being understanding. I understand that [husband Lamar Odom’s] career is not as flexible as I would say mine is, since he’s signed to the NBA and they play all the time. I make a point to make his home games a priority. I just say, “Sorry – after 6pm on this day, I can’t take meetings or do photo shoots.” I work around his schedule, and then when he’s in his off season, he works around my schedule. It’s a give and take, but you do have to understand that sometimes the woman does give more. And you have to understand the realities and the roles. Lamar can’t take time off during the season even if he wanted to, so I can’t be selfish about that; I have to understand it. And you have to do the little things in your relationship. I like cooking for Lamar to make him feel – even though I am so busy and crazy and have a strong professional life – that I love him and care about him, and still make time for the little things that make a difference.
On wanting kids, and what do they look forward to most about being a mother?
Khloe: I know this is in the future, but even just taking the kids to Lamar’s games and being like, “Let’s go see Daddy play.” I think it would be so fun to dress them in Lamar’s jersey, and to go to his games. I know that’s later. Just raising kids, and having my kids be close with Kourtney’s kids and my little sisters. Since my siblings are so close, I think we would raise our kids close – almost like siblings in a way. I’m excited for all of that.
