The piece which covers her childhood, her divorce, her father’s death and key moments of past relationships is an eye-opening insight into a woman you may have previously thought you knew.
The K-clan celebrity distributed the piece through Lena Dunham’s feminist newsletter ‘Lenny Letter’, fulfilling Dunham’s long-held wish to count her among their contributors.
Dunham introduced the letter with a confession of her own.
“Since we launched Lenny in September 2015, we have dreamed of getting Ms. Khloé Kardashian to write for us,” Dunham said.
“I am more likely to check her app than I am to take my birth control, and that’s a fact.”
The letter begins with a disclaimer that demonstrates the Kardashian’s self-awareness of not just her own position within the media but her family’s too.
“When you think Kardashian, devout probably isn’t the first thing that crosses your mind,” she said.
Khloe goes on to reveal a childhood spent in and out of church, where introductions to other faiths were often guided by her late father.
“At the time, I didn’t understand the difference between Catholics and Christians — I didn’t understand why I was being told I couldn’t take Communion. I just started crying,” she said.
“My dad explained it to me by telling me I was dedicated to the Lord and that was all that mattered.”
This teaching seems to have stayed with the young woman as her later relationship with a man of Muslim faith taught her about the fasting involved with Ramadan.
