New Year’s resolutions can be a bitch. But no worries, Khloé Kardashian is here to help us be the hashtag-new-me we know we can be. In season two of E!’s Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian, she teams up with trainers to help contestants improve their lives through mind, body, and spirit. Who better than this empowering diva to take on the task?
This week, one of her subjects was Mayank, who she paired with celebrity trainer, Gunnar Peterson. But to get to the root of Mayank’s issue with eating, she learned that it’s been a coping mechanism for living his life as a closeted gay man. He ate to deal with hiding who he was from his traditional Indian family.
Everyone on the show is really terrific! I’m so honored that they all chose to be a part of something so special https://t.co/KDNzCIpE2v

“I started eating a lot because I was emotional about it,” he told Khloe. “I just felt very uncomfortable and very bad, and I just turned to food.”
In the end, she helped Mayank reveal his sexual orientation to his family and that he’s in a relationship with a man. It was an emotional moment with his father, who ultimately accepted him.
“You’re my child and your happiness is my happiness,” his father told him. “So, I accept you. I accept you for what you are, and I want to see you happy.”
He also lost 44 pounds, thanks to help from Peterson.
The reality star and daughter of the Kardashian dynasty is now pregnant with her first child, and we’re confident her maternal skills will not be in short supply. Any gay kid would be lucky to have a mom like her. She could adopt us any day.
