Why I would actually read Khloé Kardashian's advice book
Want to learn how to live life like a Kardashian?
You're about to have that chance. According to People, Khloé Kardashian will pen her own advice book.
The magazine reports that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star will teach her fans all about how to develop "strength and true beauty" even though we live in a "culture that worships skinny," Regan Arts, the book's publisher, announced this week.
"I am so excited about sharing my philosophy on how I live and the power of strength," Khloé said. "I hope to be an inspiration to readers everywhere on how they can create their own true strength and beauty inside and out."
The book, currently untitled, is set to hit shelves Nov. 3. It's having a special launch on May 31 at BookCon, which will be filmed for Keeping Up with the Kardashians, according to People.
Normally, you couldn't pay me to read a celebrity's advice book. Celebrities live lives that are so far separated from mine. They have money and power. They often don't even understand anymore what it's like to be an average person living an average life. And since I have no desire whatsoever to be a celeb, their advice usually just doesn't feel that relevant to me.
But the thing Khloé Kardashian has to offer that is relevant to all American women is having a healthy, curvy body that is not naturally thin, and living with it under the intense body scrutiny we all face in a media culture that's obsessed with things like thigh gaps. Khloé has never been as thin as many celebrities, and she's been famous for most of her life. At the very least, she must have good advice to offer about staying body positive and building confidence and self-esteem despite having an imperfect body in a culture that demands perfection. And that is a message all women can appreciate.
