What does Rob Kardashian want for Christmas? A girlfriend? Not so fast, he says, just time with family will do.
“I mean, I want a girlfriend. I’ve been single for a while, but I’m 24 years old and I feel like I have a lot of work to do on myself first and that’s really what I’ve been focusing on. I’m focusing on my health and getting into shape and my career,” he tells PEOPLE at the Daughtry concert for the Duracell Holiday Insurance Program in New York on Wednesday. “I like being single right now.”
With the holidays approaching, getting into shape may prove difficult if he plans to feast on his mom’s and sisters’ dishes. “They make great eggs and my mom makes awesome French toast – a whole big buffet,” Rob says.
“We’re Armenian, and my sister Kourtney makes this Armenian breakfast called Beeshee. She hands down kills it, but Khloe Kardashian actually takes it because she can make all kinds of stuff and she makes food for Lamar all the time. She does a great pasta and chicken.”
“This is the time she needs us the most and every time we’re together as a family, we’re having fun. We’re happy,” he says. “We’ve been together as a family for a long time. We’re normally traveling or working, but we’ve all been together in the same household for about a month or so and it’s definitely a great thing.”
How is “Kristmas” with the Kardashians? “[My mom] passes out pajamas every year – different ones. We all have to wear them and we sleep at the house and wake up at 6 a.m. The girls make breakfast and we open presents and the whole nine,” Rob says. “My mom also throws an awesome Christmas party every year and at the end of the party – once everyone leaves – we all sit by the fire and talk as a family.”
Sounds very merry, indeed.
