The two most grounded, normal, and–in my opinion–gorgeous people to ever make their way onto Keeping Up with the Kardashians are sharing some exciting news. Unlike their Kardashian kounterparts, they made their announcement in a grounded, normal and–again, in my opinion–gorgeous manner…via Instagram.
Brandon Jenner and his wife Leah Felder Jenner are expecting their first child, and that is going to be one beautiful baby! Brandon is one of Bruce Jenner’s six children from three marriages, and he and Leah, along with his equally good-looking brother Brody are often featured on KUWTK. However, Brandon and his bride seem to be polar opposites from his Kardashian step-sisters. Thank goodness.
Kylie Jenner is the youngest member of the Keeping Up With The Kardashian klan and has lived most of her life in both the spotlight and in the shadow of her elder siblings’ drama. But now Kylie finally has some drama of her own – oh goody – which means the Pimpmomager is finally putting her on magazine covers and paying attention.
In today’s FML news, Kris Jenner has reportedly inked a $100 MILLION deal with E! to keep Keeping Up with the Kardashians on the network – as well as every time someone in the family “takes” a city against its will – for at least FOUR more years. I’m moving to Mars. Who’s with me?
According to Page Six, the record-breaking deal includes Kris, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie, and it goes well beyond the core show. Keeping Up With the Kardashians has spawned countless spinoffs, such as Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons, and we can now expect to see many more. As well as more digital projects like Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, television projects produced by Kim, more of Khloe covering the red carpet events, a Kardashian YouTube channel, and the list goes on and on. I feel faint.
Most teenagers go to school, partake in after-school activities, hang out at the mall, work a part-time job for money for college, clothes, car insurance, and so on. Even poor Kim Kardashian had to work her butt off (don’t feel too sorry for her, she bought a new one) as a teen to afford $400 shoes. #sarcasm
Well, needless to say, Kris Jenner‘s younger spawns aren’t “most” teenagers. Last year Kendall hold the Jenner invested in a $1.4 million apartment when she was 18. Now seventeen-year-old Kylie Jenner has dropped $2.7 million on a five-bedroom, five-bath, nearly 4,900 square foot home in The Oaks.
I always say that nothing this family does surprises me, but it doesn’t mean I can wrap my head around their horrible antics and anything-for-fame mentality. In my mind, parents should be parents first, not friends, and certainly not people who see their kids only as dollar signs. In case you couldn’t tell, I’m talking about the Kardashian klan, and specifically Kris Jenner and her youngest daughter Kylie.
Obviously, given her older siblings “fame,” Kylie grew up a lot differently than other girls her age. Most seventeen-year-olds aren’t plumping their lips and jet setting around the world. Also, most seventeen-year-olds aren’t dating twenty-five-year-old rappers with a baby…and if they are, it isn’t with their family’s blessing. Yes, I know I don’t have kids, and yes, technically, at eighteen, she’s considered an adult. Sure, people will say that in a few years, that age difference won’t matter. My friends and I weren’t saints at seventeen, but our rebelliousness was more about splitting a wine cooler among three people or toilet papering the homes of boys (our age!) we thought were cute. Don’t think I’m just Katrashing Kylie because of her family…I felt the same way when my revered Lizzie Maguire was dating the Madden who’s now married to Nicole Richie. It’s just ew, and being famous isn’t a pass for ew. Even more ew? What Kanye West had to say about his young sister-in-law’s romance…although that doesn’t surprise me either.
We have a new photo roundup of reality stars out and about – including poor North West, whose parents claim to want privacy for her, but then put her front row at Fashion Week…again. Nori got her payback last night at Kanye West’s big Adidas runway show, where she sat like a good Kim Kardashian daughter-bot for a few minutes (see above) and then threw a toddler tantrum right next to poor Beyonce and Anna Wintour (see below).
Other reality stars were out and about for New York Fashion Week, too, like Cynthia Baileyhitting the runway for “Go Red Dress For Women.” Kristen Taekman took in the shows, as well as La La Anthony.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
