It all started with a lie. Back in 2006 when Kim Kardashian told Nick Cannon, her boyfriend at the time, that there was no sex tape. Well, we all know that it isn’t true. Kim lost a boyfriend, but she gained worldwide fame, a reality show that is being aired for 10 years now and the Kardashian family is always in the headlines.
There is always a lot of emotion going on at the Kardashians: they fight, cry, tease each other, fight again, get romantic wedding proposals, giant weddings, scandalous break ups…. They know how to keep the public hooked. But is everything true? Not at all. In fact, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” is as real as a soap opera and most of what we see is scripted.
There are some almost inoffensive lies, like when they start to date someone and deny it or when they keep telling us they never went under the knife. The public also found out that the front of the houses we see at “KUWTK” isn’t actually their homes. They claim it’s for security reasons.
The fact is that all Kardashians were caught lying many times. We made a list of 15 times that public found out they were not being honest.
14 Kim Used A "Tear Stick" To Cry On Camera
Public often see Kim Kardashian crying on the show. However, not everything is what it looks like. At least according to her ex-husband Kris Humphries. In 2013 he revealed that the reality star used a tear stick in crying scenes for the show.
Most people would think twice before using the trick again, but...well...Kim is not like most people. Earlier this years Kim was accused of faking her tears while recalling being held at a gunpoint during a robbery in Paris.
“They filmed that scene twice,” a source said. “She wasn’t upset enough the first time so they kept filming and filming until she finally burst into tears. She has bottled everything up inside her. Talking about the robbery is difficult for her. Once the tears started, they didn’t stop.”
13 The Kardashian Home Wasn't The Real Deal
Part of the fascination of the show is to see the Kardashians and Jenner’s amazing houses. But after many years that KUWTK was being aired, there was a rumor that the homes we see in the reality show aren’t actually the real ones. During an interview for Mobio INsider, in 2014, Kim Kardashian confirmed it was true.
'My old home in Beverly Hills was really my home and I would get people showing up at all hours ringing my gate and I had to call the police on several occasions”, said. “People hopping the gate and scaring me. It was so unsafe. The Hollywood star tours would stop by too because they recognized my home from our show.'
“After, that we realized how unsafe it is to show the exterior of our homes. So now we use different homes for the outside for security purposes”, explained the Kardashian.
But not everything is fake: “When we film inside, that's obviously our real home”.
12 Kim Misleads Fans About Charity Donations
Kim Kardashian seemed to be full of good intentions when she announced the her eBay Giving Works auction, where she would sell personal items. The money would help victims of a typhoon in Philippines. She has a good heart after all, right?
However, it was revealed by Glenn Selig, President/CEO of Selig Multimedia told during an interview to Fox, that only 10% of the amount would go to charity. The other 90% went straight into Kim’s bank account.
She was very criticized and accused of misleading he fans. Kim replied the accusations on a post:
'I don’t publicize everything I do to help charities and people all over the world,' she insists. 'I do it because I want to. I do because my dad taught me to. I do it because it’s the right thing to do. So for people to attack me for giving 10% of my eBay auction sales to the people of the Philippines, that hurts”, said.
'I do eBay auctions monthly and change the charity or church from time to time. I give 10% of all my earnings to charities, not just these eBay auctions. This month it’s for the people of the Philippines, last month was Life Change Community Church”, added
11 Kris Humphries' Proposal Was Reshot... And Reshot Again
You just got one chance to do a perfect proposal. Well, unless you are a Kardashian. Back in 2013 Kim’s ex-husband, Kris Humphries, revealed that the proposal was not a surprise and Kim was aware of it - so the scene she seems moved and surprised is fake. In fact, Humphries went further and told they had to reshoot the proposal because Kim didn’t like her reaction.
“Kim told Kris how, where and when to propose, it was absolutely no surprise to her whatsoever,” told a source to Radar Online. “First of all, Kris proposed in the middle of the day, and he had to do that because it would create better lighting to capture the moment. Kim looked so surprised but she knew it was happening. She was in full hair and make-up, as she always is on the show. Kris wanted it to be very intimate and romantic, but all of his ideas were shot down by production officials and Kim."

9 Kylie Jenner's Infamous Lips
On her defence: she was not the first neither the last to deny plastic surgery. In fact, it’s something very common among the celebrities. However, when you grow up under the spotlight and in reality show lying about plastic surgery done on your face, it’s a little bit more complicated. But Kylie Jenner tried.
When she showed up in 2014 with bigger lips, it didn't take long to people assume that she had plastic surgery. Kyle felt very offended: “These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting,' adding, 'Just in case anyone forgot... I'm 16”, lied.
She kept lying in many interviews and said that her lips were looking like that just because of make up. But in 2015 during a KUWTK episode she finally told the truth: “'I have had temporary lip fillers. It was something I wanted to do”. I don’t think anyone was surprised.

And talking about Caitlyn…. Kris once again lied on everyone’s face and pretended she was surprised as the public when her ex-husband talked about the transition.
"Why would you want to be married and have kids if this is what you wanted since you were a little boy?" Kris asked her former partner during an interview. "Why would you not explain this all to me?”
"When I met Bruce, he told me that he had done hormones back in the early '80s," said "This was a conversation that took place in the early '90s. So, what he was telling me happened a decade earlier, and he never really explained it."
However, Caitlyn revealed that Kris knew about her transition plans and both had an agreement about Caitlyn using female clothes while they were married: it was only allowed away from the home and when travelling alone. Kris deny it.

Kylie learnt a lot from her older sisters and perhaps telling some lies is one of them. Jenner was just 17 years old when she started dating Tyga. However, the whole Kardashian family denied they were a couple.
“Kylie isn’t dating anybody. This whole little group of kids who have been around forever, and I call them kids because, relatively speaking, they kind of all travel as a pack and they enjoy each other’s company”, said Kris Jenner. “We all live in the same neighborhood. Tyga used to live across the street for a long time, and now he lives next door to Khloe."

6 Another Fake Kim-K Proposal
Oops, she did it again!
If you ever thought Kim could have any regret of making a fake romantic proposal with Kris Humphries, the answer is no. And she did it again with Kanye West in 2014.
As anything involving the couple, the proposal was legendary. Kanye hired San Francisco Giants’ baseball park , invited Kim family and friends and popped out the question in the middle of the field.
However, some people noticed that the ring was seen before on Kim’s finger. In a KUWTK scene, Kim is organizing some clothes for her daughter North West , while Kourtney and Khloe are talking about her. Well, in that moment Kim already had the ring Kanye would give her on the baseball park. We just can assume he had proposed before in a more intimate way.
5 Rob Kardashian Lies About His Girlfriends
Seems that lying about relationships is a rule at that Kardashians take very serious, and Rob is not an exception. After the tumultuous relationship he had with Blac Chyna, with whom he shares a child, Rob seems to be open to meet other people and move one.

Not true never even met her or heard of her before” However, a follower replied: “That's funny cause you've liked her pics on insta so you obviously do know who she is.” With the Kardashian’s background of lying about relationships, it will be no surprise if they show up as a couple soon.
4 Even The Conversations Are Planned
Kendall Jenner was on the premiere of Kocktails with Khloé, in 2016. In a teaser before the talk show was aired, the host dared Kendall to call Kim and tell her she was pregnant and thinking about having an abortion. Kendall did that and the response she heard from Kim was:
“"I don't even know. I'm not the one to talk to because I had, like, the worst experience, and I'm so fresh off the worst birthing experience," said Kim. "I mean, today is not the day ... I'm on like one hour of sleep because North was up all night and I was feeding Saint every two seconds. Literally, my day has been so crazy, and I've had no sleep, and I want to, like, die. Today I feel like, oh my God, it's been so hard.”
Kim was accused of being self-centered (really?) and it made the headlines.
