Is hard!!! Really hard. I mean first you have a 16 year old rocking what may or may not be lip injections. Then you have the one known for her sex tape saying she regrets making it, yet flashing her pussy vagina all over the Internet, and lastly you have the patriarch of the family, fighting to become the … matriarch? Let’s not even get started on the one who hides until he emerges for a McDonald’s trip. I mean lots of money means nutritionists, cooks, and trainers – who couldn’t lose weight with a team of weight loss allies? Okay. Okay. I might be a little harsh. But seriously, who has the time to keep up with the Kardashians??
First, let’s talk about Bruce. Bruce Jenner, the Olympic Athlete/Motivational Speaker turned woman. Allegedly. I mean maybe he is, maybe he isn’t, but if a mini doc series and an interview with Diane Sawyer have anything to do with this, I’m assuming maybe he is. Jenner recently had a laryngeal shave to flatten out his Adam’s Apple because he says “I just never liked my trachea”, he has been photograpphed wearing nail polish (see below), he has grown out his hair, and his own mother has spoken up saying he is indeed transitioning. I couldn’t imagine how difficult it would be to come out as a Transgender individual, let alone come out with the whole world watching. I sometimes wonder how much of Hollywood is scripted. Not the shows or the movies, but their supposed “real lives”. Is it coincidence that Jenner is going through this right before the (supposed) last season of KUWTK is about to air? Is it really probable that all these crazy things happen to one family? I’m not going to go as far as to say that Bruce isn’t really Transgender, but maybe he has been open about it for a lot longer than we believe, and so timed his “coming out”, with the break between filming the next season of the show.
With the Kardashians everybody has their turn at scandal. But ironically, it seems to happen one after the other, with minimal trainwrecks occurring at once. Of course the younger generation Jenner girls grew up with this spotlight, so it will be interesting to see if they follow in the footsteps of other stars who grew up in the public’s eye like Amanda Bynes, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan etc. Without getting to deep into it, kids in the spotlight don’t mature the same way as kids who are not. Eventually, the pressure of being constantly scrutinized becomes too much and supports are not in place to handle these situations. Is it really a coincidence that we find these young people with mental illness and/or drug addictions? The youngest Jenner, Kylie is the center of attention lately with questions about if her lips are real or not. She is 16. And possibly already a victim of the pressure of Hollywood. I mean you can only over line your lips so much. I’m not going to debate on whether or not she had lip injections (you can look below and decide for yourself) but the very idea of a surgeon working on a minor for purely cosmetic purposes, is beyond terrifying.
Kim. Yes, she’s beautiful. Yes, she has a killer body. And yes, I have applauded her before for baring it all regardless of other’s opinions. And I still do. Again in her latest (but very odd) photoshoot she is naked. I think we, as a society, are way too paranoid about nudity especially when we are fuelled by sexuality; in ads, in TV, in books, in music, everywhere! However, what rubs me the wrong way, is that in the mentioned LOVE Magazine shoot, the accompanying article mentions how Kim says she regrets her sex tape:
If I do have one regret in life, that’s it.
Meanwhile, you can flip the page and see her completely naked, pussy flaps, labia majora and all. I’m not saying the act of sex and nudity are the same thing because they are not. However, this shoot has a very dark sexual tone to it, for me it bordered on “cheap motel prostitute” type of feel. So saying you regret your sex tape, while being overly naked and sexual, is a little too condensing for me. Let’s not even get started on how people only recognized Kim K’s name after seeing the tape. I wish she would just own it. It happened. So take charge and own your mistake, or at least stop pretending like you regret it while simultaneously bending over naked. Here are some shots from the LOVE shoot:
I feel like there could be so much more to talk about from 72 day marriages, to crack addicted NBA husbands, to a man who calls himself a “Lord“, being the most sane of the bunch. But like I said, it’s nearly impossible to keep up with the Kardashians. ♡
