Whether you’ve been Keeping up with the Kardashians since 2007 or not, chances are that you’ve heard about the famous family at some stage in your life. The burning question 12 years later is, why are we still keeping up?
They Stay Relevant
12 years after the pilot episode of the hit reality show, viewers are still glued to their screens to see what’s next for the famous family. We’ve been watching the famous sisters so closely it’s almost as if we are a part of their highs and lows. From sibling rivalry to very public break ups and feuds, the famous family knows exactly how to keep us in anticipation. Not too long ago, youngest sister Kylie Jenner managed to keep her pregnancy with boyfriend and rapper, Travis Scott, a secret for nine months, leaving the whole world guessing.
The sisters have figured out exactly how to capitalise on their fame building their brands to include clothing and perfume lines, spin-off reality shows, fitness dvds, slimming and beauty products.
Advocacy and Business BO$$
Kim Kardashian recently made headlines with her announcement to take the bar exam and to achieve her dream of becoming a lawyer. Kim has been actively involved in the process of helping Alice Marie Johnson be granted clemency after being convicted for drug trafficking in 1996. Kim has also been making headlines with the launch of her new KKW Body Makeup collection, and the most recent release of her Sooo Fire KKW makeup range.
While Kourtney Kardashian may be the least interesting sister to look at, she has been making waves with her online beauty blog which focuses on a natural, vegan approach to beauty. Kourtney has always been known for her natural beauty remedies and is giving subscribers to her website, Poosh, access to all of her beauty and lifestyle tips. She was also under the radar recently for her break up from Younes Bendjima, and is currently single and focusing all of her time and energy on her kids and booming business platform.
Kendall mainly keeps a low profile but is best known for her modeling career. She models for Victoria Secret and was recently announced as being the highest-paid model of 2018.
Kris Jenner, the girls’ manager, and mom, knows a thing or two about business. She started out by managing all of her daughters’ careers and turned them into multi-millionaires. Kris has her own communications company which she runs from her home in Los Angeles. Kris is no stranger to controversy and was married to lawyer Robert Kardashian until 1991. He passed away in 2003 but was very well known as O.J Simpson’s legal representative during his infamous trial. Since then Kris has been married to Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn Jenner) but also divorced him in late 2014. Kris is currently dating Corey Gamble, who is 25 years her junior and they have been dating since her split from former husband, Bruce.
Khloe seems to be having the worst year so far as a result of her very publicized break up from former boyfriend and father of her first child, True. Earlier this year, Tristan was caught kissing Kylie’s best friend who has been a part of the Kardashian clan FOREVER. While Khloe has made an effort to keep Tristan a part of their family, Jordyn has been shunned from the lives of the Kardashians. This was made clear during Kylie’s recent birthday trip to Italy and guess who didn’t make the guest list? That’s right, Jordyn.
Despite all of the drama and betrayals, Koko is still living her best life. She was recently pictured looking #bodygoals, and she attributed it to an intense fitness regime which helps her keep her mind off all of the drama with Tristan, and focused on her beautiful daughter, True. We love mommy Khloe!
