Contrary to popular opinion, Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian received invitations to the Met Gala before they made their appearances at the event in 2022; they just decided not to go for one particular reason. Khloé addressed why she wasn’t going to the Met Gala on The Kardashians Season 2’s Nov. 3 episode, citing her nervousness when she walks red carpets.
“I just can’t believe that’s something you find enjoyable, like going on a red carpet gives me the most anxiety,” she told her sisters Kim and Kourtney while they had lunch. “Red carpets are literally the worst thing in my life. It’s like open season for people to critique you. Talk about this, talk about … get off my dick.”
Red carpets, in contrast, were “a dream come true,” according to Kim. Kourtney made an effort to empathize with her sister, claiming that she understood her concern. She said, “I used to feel that way, and now I’m just like, ‘Oh my god, I’m gonna laugh.”
Kourtney emphasized that her change in attitude was due to her marriage to Travis Barker. Kourtney admitted in a confessional that her husband had played a significant role in changing her perspective and helping her feel at ease on red carpets.
Khloé apparently had a change of heart since she attended the Met Gala on May 3 with her mother and the rest of her sisters, wearing a sparkling gold Moschino gown. The reason for her decision-making process will probably be revealed in the upcoming Kardashians episode, but the choice wasn’t an easy one. Khloé acknowledged that she found the experience “so scary but fabulous” and was thrilled to be there as she told PEOPLE on the red carpet.
