The media has already dubbed them "Kimye," noted Khloe, who admits "I like the name together," but played somewhat coy when asked if their rumored romance was a reality.
"Honestly, we've known Kanye forever -- he's been a great family friend," she told Ellen. "I love Kanye. I don't know what happens with Kim. I love Kanye. I think they're cute together, I've said that. But honey, you got to get her on the show and ask her."
The pair should know that they have Khloe's blessing, should things get serious. "I like Kanye. I think Kim and Kanye have known each other for a long time. I think that they're good friends and they're compatible. I think friendship is where good relationships stem from," she told Ellen.
And what Khloe thinks counts, even if Kim doesn't want to admit it. The 27-year-old was vocal about her dislike for Kim's soon-to-be ex-husband Kris Humphries from the start. "Kris is a good person -- it's not that -- it's just that I think him and Kim weren't compatible together," she said, adding that she's baffled that the divorce is taking longer than their marriage lasted.
Khloe was the only person to tell Kim she didn't think Humphries was right for her, but she hasn't thrown it in her sister's face. "And I haven't said [I told you so yet] ... but I told you so," she joked.
With Khloe's blessing, a ready-made portmanteau and the fact that the two were made for each other, we're hoping this isn't just a showmance, but the real thing.
Khloe also spoke to Ellen about her recent Cosmopolitan cover, which she said she was "so honored" to grace because she's always been ridiculed about her weight.
"They're always saying, 'I'm not the prettiest sister,' or 'I'm too fat' or this or that, so when they asked me to be on a cover like Cosmo, it was a big deal for me to show off my curves, and I don't have to be a size zero to be on the cover," she said.
