Khloe Kardashian Admits Her Role in Kim Kardashian’s Nude-Selfie Controversy

Perhaps Khloé Kardashian is the wind beneath Kim Kardashian's wings? In Kocktails With Khloé's Wednesday, April 13, episode, the host reveals her role in her older sister's recent nude-selfie controversy.

The FYI series' sneak peek shows Khloé, 31, asking her guests to weigh in on Kim's full-frontal naked pic, which the mom of two shared via social media last month. The image — which did feature two modesty bars to cover her private bits — earned the ire of such celebs as "Wind Beneath My Wings" singer Bette Midler and Neighbors 2 actress Chloë Grace Moretz, leading Kim, 35, to defend herself on Twitter.

Guest Holly Robinson Peete told Khloé about the pic and ensuing flap, "I think my only issue was — when she released it and then sort of got some backlash from — I think it was, like, Bette Midler and a couple other people, I felt like I didn't want her to clap back. Because I thought [Kim's mind-set should be] like, 'You know what? I'm good. This is what I did.' I felt like the clap-back wasn't worth it."

The Hangin' With Mr. Cooper actress, 51, wanted to know whether Kim's hubby, the always outspoken Kanye West, had any input in Kim's Twitter responses. As it turns out, a different family member was actually offering suggestions.

"No!" the Strong Looks Better Naked author replied. "She was doing it. [But] I was on the phone with her, and I probably wasn't the best influence."

A source previously told Us Weekly that the "Jesus Walks" rapper was indeed involved in the response tweets. "He said she’s a queen and should fight back like he always does," the source said.

Kocktails With Khloé airs on FYI Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET.
