When the Kardashians first became a household name, the six sisters were considered the kids of the family. But, fast-forward to 2018, and almost all of the Kar-Jenner girls have kids of their own. They’ve moved on from partying with the likes of Paris Hilton, and are instead enjoying luxurious vacations with their mom friends and their kiddos.
We’ve compiled a list of 10 of the closest Kardashian mom friends and 10 of their most infamous mom frenemies. Kourtney (who’s a mom to Mason, Reign and Penelope) and Kim (who’s a mom to North, Saint, and Chicago) have three kids each, so they’ve had years of hanging out with fellow mamas in Hollywood. The ladies are constantly spotted taking their kids on outings with their mom BFFs, or talking about them sweetly in the media. And, even though Khloe and Kylie are new mamas, they’ve also started growing their own team of mom friends- now we just need Jordyn Woods to join the team!
Then again, they sisters have also had plenty of time to create enemies in Hollywood, and rub people the wrong way their parenting choices or behaviour. Readers might be surprised which of their former friends they now consider a frenemy- and the reason why they’ve fallen out. Read on to get the scoop!
20 Mommy Friend: Cardi B
Cardi B is known to be a controversial figure in the world of music and celebs, but it’s clear that she’s on the Kardashians’ good side!
The rapper, who welcomed her own child, daughter Kulture, this past year, has been seen hanging out with the Kardashian Klan on social media and in-person multiple times. This past August, Kim and her mom Kris posted on Instagram how they were casually hanging out with Cardi at their Hidden Hills home, proving these ladies must all be good friends!
“I’m not poor anymore,” Cardi could be heard joking to the camera, People Magazine reports. “[I’m a part] of the rich people club,” the star added, pointing out the social significance of being invited to hang with the Kardashians.
19 Mommy Frenemy: Beyonce
We don’t even know where the feud between Beyonce and Jay-Z vs. Kim and Kanye began. But as of now, sources maintain that the two power couples are not on good terms.
A few years back, anonymous sources stated to the media that Kim had always been envious of Beyonce and wanted to be close with the famous singer. But, sensing Kim’s attitude, Queen (who is also a mama to three) B has evidently tried to distance herself from the Kardashians. They couldn’t even stand to be around each other at Serena Williams’ wedding last year, OK! Magazine reports.
Things got heated between the couples last year when Kanye launched a lawsuit against Jay-Z for supposed unpaid wages and attempting to get out of his contract with Jay’s streaming service, Tidal. We guess there aren’t going to be any Playdates between Chi and the twins any time soon…
18 Mommy Frenemy: Tammy Hembrow
You may have not have known who Tammy Hembrow was just a few months ago, but we bet you’ve heard her name recently. Tammy is the 21-year old model who left Kylie Jenner’s birthday party on a stretcher. It’s also become known that she’s a young mom to two kids: a daughter named Saskia, and a son named Wolf.
The celeb made headlines for the incident, which she blamed on a “lack of sleep,” The Daily Mail reports. The whole situation reportedly has the Kardashians attempting to distance themselves from the young mom. Obviously, it doesn’t look very good for the reality stars to be throwing parties where barely-legal moms are getting so intoxicated they have to be hospitalized.
Still, we can’t imagine that’s left Tammy with a good opinion of the Kardashians. So, we’d definitely classify her as a frenemy now!
17 Mommy Friend: Hilary Duff
You might be surprised by this one, but Hilary Duff has actually known the Kardashians for a long time! Both she and the Kardashian sisters have posted throw-back photos to when they used to party together back in the day.
A lot has changed since then, and it’s clear the ladies aren’t all as close as they used to be. But they’ve still all hung out once or twice with their kids! Back in June 2014, The Daily Mail reported that both Kim and Hil were taking their kiddos to the same parenting classes in Beverly Hills- Hilary’s son, Luca, is now 6, and she’s currently expecting her second child, a little girl.
We wish they’d shown off if they had any Playdates together on KUWTK!
16 Mommy Friend: Chrissy Teigen
Singer John Legend and model Chrissy Teigen have been married since 2013, and share two children together: 2-year old Luna and 3-month old Miles. The couple struggled with their own fertility problems for years, which is something Chrissy and Kim have reportedly bonded over.
The Wests and Legends are known to be great pals, often hanging out together at red carpet events or sending each other (well, mainly their kids) lavish gifts. Both couples attended each other’s nuptials. In 2016, Kim revealed on her app that she met Chrissy at an event, where they hit it off immediately. And they’ve been best mommy friends ever since!
15 Mommy Frenemy: Amber Rose
It’s no surprise that Amber Rose, who has one son, 5-year old Sebastian, with Wiz Khalifa is on the bad side of the Kardashians, given that she was once in a high-profile relationship with Kim’s hubby, Kanye. Amber went so far as to claim that Kanye mistreated her during their time together. But the real reason that she’s frenemies with Kim and her sisters runs much deeper than that.
Amber has actually been close friends with Blac Chyna for years… who was also once close to the Kardashians! Most fans know Chyna had a baby with Tyga, but supposedly left her to begin dating Kylie. Then Chyna got involved with Kylie’s brother Rob, they had their daughter Dream, and had a chaotic split. During all of this, Amber remained on Chyna’s side, while the Kardashians have only worked to alienate themselves from both ladies.
14 Mommy Friend: Jennifer Lopez
Um, who wouldn’t want to be friends with J-Lo? Clearly, Kim has good taste in friends since she’s been getting very close to Jennifer Lopez in the past few years.
She and Kanye have been spotted double dating with Jen and her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez. Just this past December, J-Lo threw a hilariously themed taco-night and invited the Kardashian Krew- even Kris came out! The Kardashians also supported J-Lo’s One Voice disaster relief telethon to support Puerto Rico.
All we want, though, is to see social media evidence of Kimye’s kids hanging out with Jennifer’s twins, Emme and Max. How adorable would that be?!
13 Mommy Frenemy: Nicole Richie
Back in the day, Kim was known for trying to third wheel alongside socialite besties Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton. There was even an episode of The Simple Life where Paris paid Kim to reorganize her closet- we can only imagine that happening the other way around nowadays!
Because of their dramatic friendship in the past, it seems that Nicole and Kim aren’t close anymore. At least we haven’t heard of any Playdates between the West kids and Nicole’s children, Sparrow and Harlow, who she shares with Good Charlotterocker Joel Madden.
Plus, given that Nicole’s teenage sister Sofia is currently dating Scott Disick, we don’t think either Richie girls are on good terms with the Kardashians Klan.
12 Mommy Friend: Jessica Alba
Actress Jessica Alba has an adorable family, if we ever did see one! She shares three children with her husband Cash Warren: daughters 10-year old Honor and 7-year old Haven, and son 8-month old Hayes. Given how close in age their children are, we’re not surprised that the Alba-Warrens are close with the Wests.
Just this past August, Jessica was pictured taking her brood over to Chrissy Teigen’s house to celebrate her daughter Luna’s birthday, which Kim was also attending. Likewise, the ladies have been spotted numerous times hanging out at red carpet events throughout the years, proving they’ve had a solid friendship for a long time (in Hollywood years, that is).
11 Mommy Frenemy: Blac Chyna
Of course, perhaps Kim’s biggest ‘mommy frenemy’ is her former-potential-sister-in-law, Blac Chyna (boy, that’s a mouthful). Basically, Chyna shares a son with Kylie Jenner’s ex who she was with for several years- rumour has it, Tyga left Chyna for Kylie.
Then, Chyna surprisingly starts dating Rob K, has a daughter named Dream with him, and they get engaged and have a reality show. But all of that came crumbling down moths after their daughter’s birth, when they got into a major spat online. Chyna subsequently got a temporary restraining order against her ex because he released her nude pics online. She then tried to sue the entire Kardashians family for getting her reality show axed, though she lost her suit.
Since then, the Kardashians have been maintaining their distance from Chyna, while trying to do damage control on Rob’s image. Other than the sparse times the extended family visits with baby Dream, it seems like they have nothing to do with Chyna.
10 Mommy Friend: Ciara
R&B artist Ciara is a mom-of-two: her son Future is 4-years old, while her daughter Sienna Princess is 1. Ciara has made it known through social media that she and Kim run in the same friend circle, and that they’re actually good friends.
The pair have known each other for over a decade, having been spotted having lunch dates and shopping trips for years. The ladies are routinely photographed together at events when they run into each other. Kim attended both of Ciara’s baby showers, and we’re sure they have play dates for their kid behind-the-scenes.
"We [go] over really personal stuff from the woman's side of things", Ciara once told Hello Magazine about what it was like talking to Kim, adding that the reality star gives great baby advice.
9 Mommy Frenemy: Wendy Williams
The Kardashians are buddy-buddy with a lot of talk show hosts (hey, that’s the norm when you’re family has a hit reality show). And, for a while, one of those hosts was Wendy Williams, who has one son with her husband. The Kardashians and Williams were spotted at events together, and generally seemed to be getting along well.
However, nothing seems very kosher between these two families anymore, and it probably has something to do with Wendy’s infamously big mouth. There have been multiple times Wendy has talked badly about the family, including accusing Kim of being too self centered.
This past February, Hollywood Life reported that Kris Jenner actually banned her family members from appearing on The Wendy Williams show due to Wendy’s rude comments about Kylie’s young pregnancy. We can’t same we blame Kris, though!
8 Mommy Friend: Larsa Pippen
If you want to know who Kim Kardashian’s closest mommy BFF is, then just take a look at the photos! Both Kim and her kids are always spotted with Larsa Pippen and her own brood of children. Larsa Pippen is the wife of basketball star Scottie Pippen, with whom she shares four children: Sophia, Justin, Preston, and Scotty.
The Pippen family is well-known for going on elaborate vacations with the Kardashian Klan. This past August, she and Kim were photographed strutting their stuff while vacationing in Florida. Likewise, there were tons of cute photos of Kimye’s kids hanging with the Pippen children, proving they’re more like cousins than friends!
7 Mommy Frenemy: Naya Rivera
Given that they’re both celebrities, we’re sure that Naya Rivera and Kim Kardashian have crossed paths in-person once or twice. But even if they didn’t, it didn’t stop Naya from bashing Kim online for posing scantily clad (um, shouldn’t that expected of Kim by now?!).
"I normally don't. But…you're someone's mother…" the former Glee actress commented a photo Kim posted to Instagram back in November 2014, insinuating the celeb shouldn’t be posting nude by virtue of the fact that she has kids. "Kim doesn't care, she just thinks it's funny," a source told US Weekly about the incident, explaining why Kim didn’t even respond publicly.
Fast forward to 2015, Naya herself actually posed nude while pregnant with her first son. Though Naya didn’t directly comment on the hypocrisy, fans were sure to let her know how they felt online.
6 Mommy Friend: Lala Anthony
Reality star and actress Lala Anthony has been friends with the Kardashian Klan for what seems like a lifetime, probably thanks to her connections in reality showbiz. The Puerto Rican native shares one child, 11-year old son Kiyan, with her husband, NBA star Carmelo Anthony.
Lala and her family have been routinely seen hanging out with the Kardashians and their offspring. The families also always have positive things to say about each other to the media. Just this past May, Lala told Page Six what a great place Kim was in following the birth of her third child.
“I was just with her the other day! She looks amazing, and we had a great time hanging out in New York,” she told the media outlet. “She looks hot — the hottest she’s ever looked. I mean, did you see her Met Gala look? She shut it down.”
5 Mommy Frenemy: Sharon Osbourne
For a time, Sharon Osbourne and Kris Jenner were often compared to each other for their similarities. Both had a large brood of kids (who were similar in age), successful, long-term marriages to fellow celebs, and were staring on their own reality shows with their families. Despite these two seeming like they’d be great friends, Sharon is certainly not on good terms with the Kardashians as of now.
We’re not sure where the relationship between the Kardashians and Osbournes went wrong, but Sharon has said some pretty harsh things about the family in public, which definitely would make things strained. Just last September, Sharon made headlines for calling Kim rude names and criticizing her decision to post nude online.
“If Kim wants to show off her body, fine. But that's not feminism, that's being a ho. And there's nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are,” Sharon said on The Talk. Omg that’’s harsh!
4 Mommy Friend: Yolanda Foster
Former model Yolanda Foster (formerly Hadid) isn’t just a friend, she’s family to the Kardashians. Yolanda has known and has known Kris Jenner for years. After all, she has three (very, very famous) kids close in age to Kris’ youngest girls: 23-year old Gigi, 21-year old Bella, and 19-year old Anwar.
The Kardashians also have a strange connection to the Foster-Hadids that kind of makes them related, we guess. Yolanda’s now ex husband, David Foster, was married to Linda Thompson for 15 years. Linda is the mother of Brody and Brandon Jenner, who she share with her ex Caitlyn Jenner. And we all know that Cait used to be Kris’ husband, too, and a stepfather to the Kardashian kids and dad to Kylie and Kendall.
Well that’s sure complicated!
3 Mommy Frenemy: Pink
Kim K and Pink have run into each other during red carpet events throughout the years, especially since Kanye works in the music industry. While we’d love to say that these two ladies are friends or even acquaintances, it doesn’t appear that they’re friendly at all.
Pink made headlines a few years back for calling Kim out over posing nude on social media. Kim sent the Internet a flurry after posting half-naked selfies to Insta the night before International Women’s Day. Pink didn’t hold back in sharing her opinion on the reality star’s photos.
"Shout out to all of the women, across the world, using their brains, their strength, their work ethic, their talent, their ‘magic' that they were born with, that only they possess,” the singer wrote on an Insta post, clearly yet subtly shading Kim. Cringey!
2 Mommy Friend: Kimora Lee Simmons
Once upon a time, model-turned-fashion designer Kimora Lee Simmons used to have her own successful reality show. So, it’s no wonder that the celeb has been close to the Kardashian Klan for years. The star has two daughters only slightly younger than Kylie and Kendall: 18-year old Ming and 16-year old Aoki. She also has two young sons: 9-year old Kenzo and 3-year old Wolfe.
Kimora recently proved just how close she still is with the Kardashians by sending their three youngest members some very elaborate gifts. Kim, Khloe, and Kylie all showed off on social media that the Simmons family had sent over three miniature Bentleys and three life-sized teddy bears for Chicago, True, and Stormi. We wish we have celebrity family friends to spoil us (uh, our kids we mean!) like that!
1 Mommy Frenemy: Sarah Michelle Gellar
You likely recognize Sarah Michelle Gellar as the face of Buffy Summers, star of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. She graced our TV screens for almost a decade as the iconic character from the late 90s to early 2000s, and then went on to marry another ‘90s heartthrob, Freddie Prinze Junior. Together they have two kids: daughter Charlotte and son Rocky.
Although they’ve been running in the same social circle for years, Sarah has made it very clear what she thinks of the Kardashians, so we’re sure they also don’t have any warm, fuzzy feelings towards her. Back in 2014, Sarah slammed Kimye’s vogue cover (in which they also posted for photos with baby North). “I guess I’m cancelling my Vogue subscription… who’s with me?” She tweeted to her fans, making it very clear she doesn’t keep up with the Kardashians.
