Rob Kardashian on Living with Khloé, Hanging with Lamar, and, Yes, Kim's Butt
DETAILS: So there have been four Kardashian-filled shows already—Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami (and then Kourtney & Kim Take New York), and Khloé & Lamar—but none specifically about you. When do you get your own show?
Rob Kardashian: If it happens, it happens. I really don't, like, care for all of that. The cameras are there, and I'm involved because it's in my house, but I don't really care to have my own show. I'm forced into it, and it's part of my life. But I mean, if it happens, it happens.
DETAILS: What do you think when people call you a freeloader?
Rob Kardashian: That bugs me a lot. I don't think people truly know what I have done or that I've actually had a regular job. In high school, I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch, and once I graduated from business school at USC, I started a company with my partner and had a nine-to-seven job. My sisters constantly say, "You're a loser," or whatever, but that's what it is. I don't care what people think.
DETAILS: Speaking of, you live with your sister Khloé, who definitely does talk some smack about you.
Rob Kardashian: I'm literally the type that's like, "I don't know why you even care about me, because I don't think I'm anything special." I'm very nonchalant. I don't care about anything.
DETAILS: Anything? What about living with your sister? Do you get along with her costar and husband, Lamar Odom?
Rob Kardashian: I've had my own place several times, but Lamar asked me to live with my sister and him because he's on the road a lot and he doesn't want her at home alone. He has no siblings, so he and I had a quick and close bond from Day 1. Let's just say, it's a fun house.
DETAILS: Does Khloé ever get jealous when you and Lamar have boys' time?
Rob Kardashian: For sure she does. When him and I are up all night playing video games or just talking about life. I understand that they are newlyweds and all that, so I try not to interfere. But that's a guy thing.
DETAILS: On the new show, you come off as quite the player, but back on Season 2 of KUWK you were in a serious relationship. What happened?
Rob Kardashian: Honestly, I'm very single. I never go out. I never talk to girls. I think it's corny and cheesy for a dude to holler at a girl. That's just disrespectful, in my mind. I may talk to girls, but I don't hang with girls, I don't date girls. I haven't really found anybody.
DETAILS: What about [Khloé's assistant] Malika?
Rob Kardashian: She's just a really close friend of the family. I have a type for a girlfriend, and that's just not it.
Rob Kardashian: She's not my type.
DETAILS: How does coming from a family of women influence your love life? Did you grow up learning any tips?
Rob Kardashian: Yeah, definitely. My mom has always stressed, from when I was in middle school, "You gotta be the husband who is this way and treat your woman right." But it's hard to bring somebody into our family because they have to meet everybody. Not to mention it's hard to find a perfect girl, especially living in Los Angeles. I'm trying to focus on my business and money first before I get into a serious relationship.
DETAILS: Your mom [Kris Jenner] and Bruce [Jenner, Rob's stepfather] make quite the pair. In fact, I'd argue Bruce is one of the shows' most endearing figures. He's absolutely adorable.
Rob Kardashian: He really is the best. He's been in our family since I was 2 and beyond cool to take in all these kids from my mom. He's always been a really good father. I feel really bad, though, he has, like, no friends.
DETAILS: What?! He honestly has no friends?
Rob Kardashian: I swear, he has no buddies. My mom is his only buddy. Well, and us: all of his sons. We all hang out, we're all pretty close.
DETAILS: I guess his portrayal on TV is accurate, because all he seems to be doing is playing with his toys and being lovable.
Rob Kardashian: He definitely has a routine. He gets my mom Starbucks in the morning, goes and flies his helicopter on the field for an hour, and then he golfs throughout the day and takes my sisters to school. That's what he loves.
DETAILS: Any spoilers for this season of Keeping Up?
Rob Kardashian: We go on a family vacation and it's the first time hanging out with Kris [Humphries], Kim's fiancée, so there's a lot of drama. And obviously there's still a lot of drama between Scott and I…
DETAILS: Right. And I have to ask about the episode showing your sister Kim visiting a doctor to X-ray her butt, apparently proving that it's all real down there?
Rob Kardashian: I don't know why people wanna talk about someone's butt, but sadly, that's how Kim is. She hears what everyone says—even reading the smallest blogs out there—and listens. But you know what? Our family is Armenian, we all have big butts.
