She's one of the most talked about women in showbiz, but Khloe Kardashian said she hasn't forgotten the stylists who refused to work with her when she was "too big".

The reality tv star (31) famously shed 40 pounds in the last two years as she overhauled her lifestyle ion the wake of her divorce from ex-NBA player Lamar Odom.

And while she might be hitting the gym every day and carefully measuring her nutritional intake these days, she said most fashion insiders refused to work with her before her drastic weight loss.

"I definitely think the fashion industry, and people in general, look at me more now that I've lost weight," she told HarpersBazaar.com.

"Even on shoots, I would never have options for clothing. There would always be this attention on Kourtney and Kim, but I was too much work for [stylists] or they had nothing in my size. I wasn't even that crazy big!"

She has worked with super-stylist Monica Rose for the last nine years and Rose is now one of the most in demand in the industry working with Khloe's sisters Kim, Kendall and Kylie Jenner; as well as Chrissy Teigen and Gigi and Bella Hadid.

"At my fattest, Monica would always come with racks of clothes and make me feel special. She never told me, 'Oh, they don't have that in your size,'" she added.

"Other people actually said, 'I just can't work with you'—because I was too big. That always hurt my feelings, of course."

And her response when those same folks ask to work with her now>

"I'm just like, 'F**k you. I'm not going to reward your bad behaviour.'"
