Khloé Kardashian Opened Up About Correcting People When They Call Her Daughter “Big” Because She Doesn’t Want To Pass Down Her Own “Really Unhealthy” Relationship With Food And Body Image

Bless the "Ted Lasso" gods: A 10-episode comedy series, "Shrinking," is coming from the beloved series' writers, Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein. Apple TV+ greenlit the series, which will star Jason Segel, on October 13.

According to Deadline, "Shrinking" will follow "a grieving therapist," played by Segel, "who starts to break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he thinks. Ignoring his training and ethics, he finds himself making huge, tumultuous changes to people's lives ... including his own."

The series will be written by Segel, Lawrence, and Goldstein, who serves as both the smoldering Roy Kent and a writer on "Ted Lasso." Plus, all three will be executive producing. "Shrinking" is produced by Warner Bros. Television — who also produces "Ted Lasso" — and Lawrence's studio, Doozer Productions. Doozer's Jeff Ingold and Liza Katzer have both been named co-executive producers on the project as well.

Goldstein is perhaps best known for his starring role in and as a writer/co-executive producer on Apple TV+'s runaway hit, "Ted Lasso." Lawrence serves as executive producer and showrunner on the series, which was co-created by Jason Sudeikis, who also serves as executive producer and plays the titular lead.

Last month, the fan-favorite broke the record for the most-nominated freshman comedy in Emmy history. The streaming series garnered a total of seven Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Sudeikis, and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Goldstein. Hannah Waddingham, who plays Richmond Football Club owner Rebecca Welton, took home the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

I'm just chiming in to say these are the green light announcements I live for. I'm a mega "Ted Lasso" fan and the writing is a huge reason why. It'll be really cool to see Lawrence and Goldstein taking on another emotionally present scenario and bring their own brand of comedic sensibilities to it. Plus, it's been a while since we've gotten a real Jason Segel star vehicle, so it will be nice to see him take on a part with some meat on its bones through which he can remind people why he was such a comedy sensation some years back. Speaking of which, he's got quite a bit on his plate coming up.

This is actually the second Apple original series Segel will star in. In September 2020, it was revealed that the former "How I Met Your Mother" star will head up the cast of "The Sky is Everywhere" alongside Grace Kaufman and Cherry Jones. The A24-produced series will be based on the best-selling young adult novel of the same name.

Segel recently created, executive produced, and starred in the AMC series "Dispatches From Elsewhere," which ran for one season. Additionally, he will play Paul Westhead in HBO's upcoming untitled Los Angeles Lakers series.

The actor is perhaps best known for his stand-out work in Judd Apatow's early 2000s comedies, including "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Knocked Up."

Why Khloé Kardashian Corrects People Calling Daughter True 'Big'

Access 14 October, 2021 - 05:02pm

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum poses with her 3-year-old as part of Health magazine's November 2021 cover story, in which the mom opens up about her past experience with body shaming.

"When it comes to food — I had so many issues," she says. "It wasn't from one person, I guess just from society or how people critiqued my body. So I don't play when it comes to True. She's very tall. People will always say, 'She's so big.' And I'll say, 'Oh, she's so tall.' I try to make them be more descriptive. I know what an adult means when they say that, but I don't want her to misinterpret that."

Khloé, who shares her child with ex Tristan Thompson, adds that True is "really tough" but she does "try to always tell her that it's okay if she cries or if something is wrong."

Khloé further elaborated on her past relationship with food, describing it as a "really unhealthy" one.

"When I was younger and was sad, I would eat — I was an emotional eater. And then I hated the way I felt after that," the Good American co-founder says. "I was almost punishing myself for binging or having a bag of chips. It just became so much thought. I had tried every diet under the sun. ... That's why I yo-yoed my entire life — I was always chasing some fad."

"When I started working out, I decided to make some lifestyle changes," she says. "So I'd say, for example, this week I am just going to do one thing: I'm just going to cut out sugar. Then, maybe I'd try to do it for a month. After that, I'd try to incorporate another healthy change."

Back in April, Khloé shared unedited photos and video of herself as she opened up about trying to learn to love herself despite the "unbearable" scrutiny she faces.

"... As someone who has struggled with body image her whole life," she wrote at the time, "when someone takes a photo of you that isn't flattering in bad lighting or doesn't capture your body the way it is after working to hard to get it to this point - and then shares it to the world - you should have every right to ask for it not to be shared - no matter who you are."

She continued, "In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule and judgment my entire life to be perfect and to meet other's standards of how I should look has been too much to bear."

"You never quite get used to being judged and pulled apart and told how unattractive one is," Khloé added, "but I will say if you hear anything enough then you will start to believe it. This is how I have been conditioned to feel, that I am not beautiful enough just being me."

During part two of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reunion in June, host Andy Cohen asked the famous family whether their glamorous photoshoots and sexy swimsuit shots promote unattainable beauty standards for other women. Khloé's sister Kim Kardashian West shared her perspective.

"No, I don't. Because I think we get up, we do the work. We work out," Kim, 40, said, referring to the early-morning workouts she and her sisters often share on social media.

"We all really enjoy taking care of ourselves and being healthy, so I think if anything, the only thing we're really trying to represent is just being the most healthy version of yourself," sister Kendall Jenner added at the time.
