Khloe Kardashian is recalling an emotional incident involving her brother Rob Kardashian's declining health.

During a promo event for her new show Kocktails With Khloe (premieres Jan. 20) earlier today, the 31-year-old E! star opened up to Catt Sadler about Rob's recent health scare and diabetes diagnosis. While the family didn't have a sit-down intervention with Rob last week like some tabloids claim, Khloe think's a phone "intervention" she had with Rob on the last season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was pivotal.

"We didn't mean to film [it] and it just happened. We filmed an intervention that aired...not so much like a sit-down and this blah, blah, blah, it was like over the phone and it was just like that's when the time happened and we happened to be filming and we just needed to really address a lot of stuff with Rob," Khloe told E! News exclusively Thursday. "And it came to be that I'm an enabler because I baby him too much but I can't kick my brother out, that's never gonna happen."

Khloe continued of Rob's well-being, "But I think Rob's health scare really again, leaving that in 2015 all the bad stuff, 2016 I think is gonna be a really positive great year. And I think that health scare hopefully rattled Rob a little bit and maybe woke him up…I know it's only what January 7 or 8, it's only eight days of this year but I think I've seen such a great transformation just mentally right now. So I hope that sticks. Again it's only been a week, but I hope that sticks and I'm always praying and rooting for Rob."

"I'm very hopeful," she continued. "We gotta get Rob back out here doing his thing. We all miss Rob, he's the best."

Rob was hospitalized the week prior to New Year's. He was treated and diagnosed as diabetic. Following the health scare, a source told E! News, "He's home already. He went for a little and is fine now. It was a wake up call.

The insider added that Rob's tests revealed his blood sugar levels were very high, and doctors told him that he needs to lose weight, exercise and dramatically change his diet, or it will get worse. 

And just yesterday, Khloe took to her website to explain just how she's motivating her little brother to get healthier. "People ask me all the time, 'How did you bounce back from your breakup?'" she wrote. "I guess since I started transforming my body and myself after such a low point in my life, people see me as some sort of expert on the subject. I'm not claiming to be one, but I do have some insight to share with you dolls. So because you asked, here's how I feel like a badass after a breakup!"

She continued, "I told Rob a while back: the best form of revenge is a good body. It's a little silly but true. There is literally no downfall to working out your blues in the gym! You'll feel better, and the by-product will be a fierce bod that's bound to make your ex do a double-take."
