“There’s a lot of baggage that comes along with our family, but it’s like Louis Vuitton baggage!” (Kim Kardashian)
We all have our guilty pleasures… The Kardashian clan are one of mine! Not only are they stunning, savvy and sassy, but they are also interesting, funny individuals. Last Sunday saw the return of the much loved show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Quickly it covered two media worthy topics: Kim’s pregnancy struggles and the Bruce/Kris divorce situation. Viewers were delighted to see the sisters return with Kourtney pregnant (again!), Khloe showing off her incredible shoe collection and Kim getting frisky with Kanye at every opportunity. But what is it about these Armenian TV stars that pulls in massive audiences?
Despite their popularity, audience figures have dropped significantly during the past series, which is surprising considering the joining of Kimye with their nuptials in season 9. However, loyal audience members are excited to see the trailer for the new season boast an insight into Kris’ dating life, Scott’s continued battle with substance abuse and Kim’s traumatic time trying to conceive. I for one, am ecstatic to see what happens next. For me, the lure in the Kardashian mania is Khloe. She is a breath of fresh air as she brings the fun into the appearance orientated family. The curvy sister is best known for her potty mouth and sarcastic nature; she is portrayed as a girl you would love to be friends with!
I am hooked by the Kardashian sisters, including the rising stars, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. They are launching their own careers and have such a sense of style that it is difficult not to Google them. Whether they are in the news for buying properties at the ripe old age of 17 or storming the runway for Chanel at Paris Fashion Week, the youngest siblings are bringing in a whole new audience. Social media has been an amazing platform for the baby Jenners; having over 20million Instagram and Twitter followers is an impressive feat by an means. Perhaps their fame will soon outshine the number one money-maker, Kim?
Many are quick to judge this brood for being fame- seeking, talentless socialites, however in reality these reality TV stars are much more. Between the family are successful business ventures including Arthur George Socks, DASH clothing boutiques, Kris’ cookbook and Kardashian Beauty, all of which are approved by momager, Kris. So before mocking the bootylicious beauties, consider the hard-work, perseverance and dedication it has taken for them to be able to feature so highly in the celebrity net worth stakes.
Still unsure about the Kardashians? Take a look at this trailer to see if you can be persuaded!
