"Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Who's the fairest of them all?"
Me, me, me, of course--that goes without saying!
Kourtnee is tiny but she's looking old. Khloee is the tallest of us Kazandjian sisters though she looks like an ogre.
Hey, what can I do? I inherited the good genes. It's just TOO BAD.
Even with all the plastic surgery which haters say make me "fake," it's the real me that my fans are in love with. Everything we put out there on our reality TV show is 100% real, even when it's scripted (we live and act out the scripts, so how can it be fake?).
Plastic surgery isn't any different from plonking pounds of make-up on your face anyway. You're still enhancing looks.
Look at my boobs, my ass, my perfect face.
My mama was right: Looks are Worth.
