Student discuses the Kardashians drama

Commentary by

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you all have probably heard that Kylie Jenner, the youngest and the third oldest out of the six Kardashians, Khloe are pregnant. This wouldn’t be that big of a deal to everyone however it just so happens that Kylies 20 years old and Khloe had problems with fertility shown in the last season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians which just celebrated its 10th anniversary.

Kris Jenner, the Kardashian’s mom and manager or “momager” which she calls herself, knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows how to get the public talking about her family non-stop and have their pictures on the cover of almost every tabloid no matter how extreme the headline is. The timing is right with everything whether it’s a break up, a lawsuit, a 72 day marriage, a make up line, a photo shoot, literally anything that they’ve done and you know about is because of the work of Kris Jenner.

How is it that the Kardashians, who everyone calls useless, talentless, overrated, etc. have been on TV for 10 years now? Wouldn’t people get bored of hearing about them every day and everywhere? Getting this family from just a bunch of rich kids who’s name was made famous from their father, Robert Kardashian better known as OJ Simpson’s lawyer, to a world famous family who is incredibly powerful and influential is not the easiest job in the world.

My theory on this is that the family had a good start since they already had connections with lawyers and money, given their father was world famous even long after his death. So no matter what kind of trouble they would get in, they already had their family friend lawyers on speed dial to get them out of it. Now all they needed was the attention from the public and a reality TV show was the perfect start. With Kim’s sex tape and also her closet organizing business helping make connections with celebrities like Serena Williams, Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and Cindy Crawford, Kris realized she had the perfect poster child for the family’s rise to fame.

Kris Jenner would soon learn that the public’s secret guilty pleasure was her family. How would Kris deal with? Play the public, of course! Even if some of the drama with this family wasn’t made up, she knew that timing was everything. Having the producers and other family friends keep their secrets also has a lot to do with their lawyer connection and power/influence. When to announce these events to the media was her game plan. So even if Kylie and Khloe’s pregnancy wasn’t planned and actually just happened, do you really think it was a coincidence that Kris, the momager genius, would wait to announce this information right before the 10th anniversary of Keeping up with the Kardashians would air?
