Khloé Kardashian is one of the most outspoken members of an already highly visible family.

The reality star has opened up about all aspects of her dramatic life, from ill-fated relationships to unexpected tragedies. Here are some of the moments Kardashian really gave us a glimpse of her truth:

On trying to have a baby to "fix" her marriage to Lamar Odom
“I do want to have a baby in life. I tried IVF and all that. Well, there was a reason why it didn’t work But at the time, I was like, ‘Oh, I’ve got to have a baby!’ That’s all I wanted at the time, and I thought it would maybe fix the situation. So I’m also happy it didn’t happen because I was young, I was 27, and I thought, ‘A baby will fix this,’ and it’s not going to fix that.”

On how seeing her mother cheat on her father convinced her never to be unfaithful
“I love my mom but my mom cheated on my dad – she’s been honest about it. But I think because of that, and I saw how it destroyed my dad, I’ve never ever cheated in any relationship I just saw what it it did to my dad so I don’t want to do that. But I appreciate those lessons. I also saw the regret from my mom.”

On trying to help her brother Rob battle depression and weight issues
“I’ve been really trying. But I have my moments and I do snap. I’ve offered to get a chef, I’m like, ‘What’s your excuse?’ But it’s not just that. I can’t win life for Rob. I have to wait until [he’s] ready to do it for himself.”

“My dad died when Rob was 16. Rob doesn’t have a father figure in his life. When [our stepdad] Bruce [now Caitlyn Jenner] was around, he was great, but he was going through his own things that none of us understood at the time. Lamar was [Rob’s father figure]. Once Lamar left and it’s not Lamar’s fault at all – I think Rob didn’t know where to go. He was like, ‘I don’t have guidance anymore ‘ It’s sad, because he’s only wasting his life more and more. But he has to figure it out for himself. And he has so many people who want to help him.”

On how she coped with her father’s death
“After my dad died in 2003, I was partying all the time, drinking a lot and sleeping in every morning. At this time, my mom and Kourtney were running their kids store Smooch, and when the space next door opened up, Kourt got it! She saw that I was spiraling and wanted to give me responsibility and a reason to wake up in the morning, so she told me I was going to help her run her new store.”

On confronting ex-husband Lamar Odom about his brothel visits
“I said: ‘Listen, you do whatever the f— you want to do, but please promise me you’ll never go back to a disgusting brothel again. And if you want to pay someone, you can pay someone in the privacy of your hotel, like, what are you doing?!’ And he said you know, he obviously wasn’t thinking and he promised he won’t go back to a place like that.”

On how being on TV changed her self image
“Before the show started, I thought I was in good shape, but I guess not good enough for Hollywood’s eyes. I didn’t realize I was the fat sister until I went on TV and the media started saying that about me. And if you hear something so many times, you start to believe it. I just thought, ‘Okay, that’s my role.’ I started saying it before other people did. I was like, ‘Okay, I’m the fat, funny sister.’ I let it take ownership of me, and I didn’t feel motivated to change that perception. In reality I wasn’t fat; I wasn’t obese. But I let society make me believe that I was.”

On the humiliation of going through a break-up in the public eye
“When you break up in the public eye, it’s almost like you have to go through it twice: privately and publicly. I’ve been there, for sure, and it’s hard. You could be having a fight that you don’t necessarily want your family or friends to know about, and then all of a sudden it’s like the whole world knows your business. It’s humiliating. There’s so much that you want to keep private, just for the sake of your own pride, and when details get out to the tabloids or whatever, it’s like pouring salt into an open wound. It definitely makes it hard to close that chapter of your life.”

On her desire to marry again
“But I do one day, honey, I need to get married again. Listen, at this point, I don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring, I’ve learned that. They say if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans, so I have no plans to be made. So even if I remarry the same person again – I don’t know, that’s not where I am right now.”

On how her brother-in-law Kanye West helped Lamar recover from his near-fatal overdose
“Kanye would come to the hospital and play his album for Lamar – and Lamar couldn’t speak at this time – and music is definitely a form of therapy. Lamar would say he could understand everything, he just couldn’t get the words out … When he was able to finally speak, he would always say, ‘Man, Kanye really helped me. I love that he would come,’ and just do that for him.”

On still loving Lamar
“I love him with every fiber of my being. I think that’s apparent. But we were married and I shared that union with him and I didn’t want our divorce to happen, but it happened for many reasons. That doesn’t mean I forget about this person in their time of need. I still believe in my vows of being there for him.”
