Why everyone is talking about Khloe Kardashian today

These days, it's more unlikely to see the Kardashians out the headlines than in.
But as Khloe Kardashian is plugging her new talk show Kocktails with Khloe, she is giving media outlets a sound bite to kill for.
Exhibit A: Lamar Odom
On his alleged infidelities...
Khloe revealed her ex-husband Lamar Odom, who nearly died after a drug overdose at a Nevada brothel in October, allegedly cheated on her for the "majority" of their four year marriage. "I'm genuinely blown away as to when he fit that in," she told Good Morning America of Lamar's alleged infideilities.
The couple filed for divorce in 2013 and due to a backlog in the Los Angeles Superior County Court system, they were still legally married at the time of his overdose. As a result of his condition, Khloe postponed the petition.
On their relationship...
The 30-year-old said she still believes she and her estranged husband are "soulmates", but is no longer willing to pursue a romantic relationship.
“I do believe that we’re soulmates but...that’s not even where my head is at," she said. "I think people, they don’t understand the severity of everything," she told Howard Stern's Sirius XM show.
"I wouldn't change what I did because it was also one of the best times of my life," she added. "For me, I wouldn't say it's a mistake. I needed that experience for me. The love I received was the love I needed to have at that time."
On Lamar visiting brothels...
"I've said, 'You do whatever the f*** you want to do, but please promise me you'll never go back to a disgusting brothel again. And if you want to pay someone, you can pay someone in the privacy of your hotel, like, what are you doing?!' And he said, you know, he obviously wasn't thinking and he promised he won't go back to a place like that."
Exhibit B: The physical transformation
Over the last two years, Khloe has lost a whopping 40 pounds through an intense fitness regime and healthy diet. She works with celebrity personal trainer Gunnar, takes Soul Cycle classes and is regularly pictured hiking in Los Angeles.
"I definitely think the physical and the mental go hand in hand," she told People. "I feel so good in the gym that it [affects] the rest of my day. It's a healthy addiction. It's like buying your sanity. I’m proud, I’ve worked for three f***ing years to do this."
She also rocked a new centre part for with her freshly highlighted blonde lob hairstyle.
Exhibit C: Caitlyn Jenner
Khloe remained uncharacteristically quiet before, during and after stepfather Caitlyn Jenner's transition. She said the family felt "betrayed" that after months of speculation about her gender transition from Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn , the news was confirmed in a business meeting for her upcoming E! series I Am Cait.
"We felt betrayed because more business people [knew]," she told Stern. "We felt so, like, what the f***? We've been asking you, and why do [business people] know? I never want someone to feel like they have a one-up on our family. We've never turned our backs on each, with all the cluster f**ks of shit in our lives, so why would we now?
"He did have private talks with us after. But he never said he was going to transition. He would just say his soul has always been a woman, but I can't tell you if at that moment he really didn't think he was going to transition."
Exhibit D: The catsuit
Keep slaying, Khloe.
