The Word: Is Khloe really a Kardashian?

When one gazes at the Kardashian sisters (as we often do, since they are more omnipresent than Starbucks), do you ever think, “Hmm, which of these things is not like the other?”

If you, too, think Khloe Kardashian doesn’t resemble her famous sisters, you aren’t the only one — Kris Jenner has had to squelch rumors of Khloe’s paternity for years. But now Robert Kardashian’s ex-wife and widow have come forward in a Star magazine exclusive in which they both claim that the late Kardashian expressed his doubts that he was indeed the father of Khloe.

“Khloe is not his kid — he told me that after we got married,” Jan Ashley, 63, the woman who married Robert after Kris Jenner, revealed to Star.

“He just kind of looked at me and said [it] like it was a matter of fact. He said, ‘Well, you know that Khloe’s not really a Kardashian, don’t you?’ And I said … ‘OK,’ and that was it.”

But that’s not all. Ellen Kardashian, 63, who married Robert in 2003, says she has her doubts, as well.  
“Khloe brought it up all the time,” Ellen told Star in the bombshell exclusive. “She looked nothing like the rest. She was tall, had a different shape, light hair, curly hair. Didn’t look anything like the other three children.”

Whatever you do Khloe, never, ever take a DNA test. For now, you get the best of both worlds: A cut of the Kardashian empire without having to be biologically related to them.

Berry is off the market

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are reportedly engaged, according to Us Weekly. Berry, who has been married twice before, “had given up on being married, but she trusts Olivier,” a source says. “He makes her feel safe. He’s a keeper.” Martinez reportedly popped the question over the holidays with an emerald and diamond engagement ring. The pair met in 2010 as co-stars on the film “Dark Tide” and started dating soon after. Berry was previously married to David Justice and Eric Benet, and she has a 3-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
