In Khloé Kardashian’s new book ‘Strong Looks Better Naked,’ the celeb has some very interesting and surprising things to say about fame, pregnancy and her body image.  Read on…

Kardashian, 31, expressed her thoughts in her book which is part memoir, part self-help, and part health & fitness. In places, it’s playful and funny, but she does offer up a serious side to her personality.  Here are 10 direct quotes from the youngest female “Kardashian.”

1. On Drama:
“Now I realize that I actually thrive on chaos. I think all of the Kardashians do. We like drama because it’s like a shot of adrenaline. We like problems because suddenly we have another opportunity to find a smart solution.”

2. The Master Cleanse: 
“The craziest thing is that I was convinced the cleanse was going to work. It was Beyoncé, for god’s sake! My hero!… But I was miserable… I felt like shit, and I had turned into a raging bitch. Long story short, I didn’t make it through day 3.”

3. The Paparazzi: 
“Every time I left my house, the paparazzi followed…snapping pictures and shouting questions — ‘Is it true Lamar cheated on you?’ ‘Is he doing drugs?’ ‘Are you guys splitting up?’ — and it was both painful and mortifying… I didn’t need to hear that negative bullshit. Every day felt like an attack. It was also humiliating; it got to the point that leaving my house would give me social anxiety.”

4. Body-type Analysis:
“I was so taken with Phil that I told Kim and Kanye to go see him. They did that whole blood panel, too, and — wouldn’t you know it? — Kim and Kanye are what he called Ferrari body types. Those two can process just about anything. Can you believe that? Life is so unfair!”

5. Mental Escape/Therapy:
“The gym was a genuine oasis — a refuge and a sanctuary… My workouts were not about vanity; they were about relieving stress. I had so much going on emotionally, and I was disinclined to talk about it, even with my own family, so the workouts became a form of therapy.”

6. Her Identity:
“When I got married, I was no longer simply one of the Kardashians; I had my own life and a separate identity. I had broken free… But with Lamar gone, it was as if I had taken a giant backward step. I was back to being Khloé, but a somewhat more ‘damaged’ version.”

7. Brother Rob:
“Rob still lives with me, and maybe I’m weak, but I’m not going to put my brother out on the street on the off chance that he will make an effort to change is life… But beyond [being his biggest cheerleader], there’s not much I can do. He will make changes in his life when he is able to motivate himself.”

8. Reaction to Caitlyn:
“After we filmed it, I knew that people were never going to understand my reaction. I was still upset and angry. I had not had time to process the news. And even before I saw the footage, I knew I was going to come across as hostile and unpleasant…but [the pain and anger] was real; it was what I felt. It was my truth without the benefit of distance; it was truth unedited.”

9. Losing Control:
“She took it upon herself to turn me around… I didn’t ended up in rehab or anything, because Kourtney put her foot down and forced me to take control of my life, but I probably came close.”

10. Pregnancy Rumors:
“During my marriage, according to the media, I was pregnant at least eight times. At one point, my own publicist called to ask me if the rumors were true… But suddenly I began to wonder, and I was filled with self-doubt. I went to CVS to get a pregnancy kit just to be sure I wasn’t pregnant…of course the results were negative, but the fact that I had been driven to that extreme was frightening.”
