Kardashian Family: 10 Things We All Envy, 10 Things We're Good Without

The Kardashians have been famous for a very long time—basically since the premiere of their reality television show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. All of the Kardashian-Jenner children have something going on in their lives that allows them to be popular and pull in a huge fan base. Kim is famous for her previous stylist abilities and has since come out with makeup and perfume lines, both by herself and with her sisters. Kourtney and Khloe have had their spin-off reality shows and have been on a plethora of magazine covers. Rob—the only son—had his sock line once upon a time. Kylie has blown up on her own through her social media following and her super-popular makeup line.

Last but not least, Kendall is a big-time model currently walking on the runway for Victoria’s Secret. All of the children have become seriously successful and although many people out there believe their fame has come from nothing—it may have started from nothing, but all of the Kardashian-Jenner kids work hard to stay relevant... even if it means being seen in a not so positive light.

Here is a list of things they do that we would love to do or have, and some that we can do without.

20 Confident Creatures

Capital FM

The Kardashians are pretty famous for their beauty—while there might be a few people out there who could care less—most of these girls are very attractive, and the reason why this matters is that they are huge on making people feel good about themselves. They are not afraid to hide the alterations to their bodies such as breast implants, hair extensions or lip injections. Each of the Kardashian girls except Kendall has had something done to their bodies, and they aren’t afraid to show them off to the world. According to E! Online, confidence is vital in the Kardashian household, and they all have a lot of it.

19 Money, Honey

Top Speed

Out of everything the Kardashian family has, money is probably the most envious piece. The Kardashian girls—including Kendall and Kylie—had money growing up; they were never poor. But it is essential to recognize how hard these girls actually work. Kris Jenner was not very famous before Kim made a name for herself, and since then all of the kids have started their own projects and made lives for themselves and their kids independently according to NBC2. Although it seemed as if they were famous for no reason in the beginning, in the years following the first few seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians they have become much more business oriented.

18 All In The Family

Us Weekly

There has never been a time on Keeping Up with the Kardashians that they have not been all about family. The sisters and one brother have always been close, but their relationship with extended family is a different style entirely. An example of this is when their former stepfather Bruce Jenner came out with a secret that none of the girls had known about him. Although their relationships might not be so close now, when he first began to express himself, the girls accepted every part of it. Family is important and being there for them at all times despite what they are going through and how different they are, according to W Magazine’s interview with Caitlyn Jenner.

17 Businesses Galore


One thing that it’s important to know about the Kardashians is that they are all super business oriented and have been for quite some time. According to Fortune Magazine, there are quite a few business lessons that we can learn from the Kardashians. Their first tip is to do as much as possible but to not let it get the best of oneself. The Kardashians are known for their hundreds of projects consisting of TV, clothing and makeup lines, acting, designing, etc. They are pretty non-stop when it comes to work, which is admirable. They know how to do as much as they can and still take time for themselves and their families.

16 Brotherly And Sisterly Love

Us Weekly

As viewers see each week on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, they are a very close and tight-knit family. They fight and argue of course, just like anybody else, but they also love each other a lot and couldn’t imagine life without one another. Elite Daily reports how the sisters act on the show as well as when they aren’t filming and how they are extremely close regardless of what is going on. They were all born pretty close together which means they deal with similar situations right after another—this allows them to be there for each other when they go through similar phases.

15 Family Vacay


Every year—as featured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians—the family is known for taking a family trip. Sometimes there are smaller trips that just a few go on such as Kim, Kourtney and Kendall's trip to Utah this past February, according to People Magazine. But then there are huge trips such as the family trip to Costa Rica last January, which was featured on their reality television show. Their ability to take relaxing vacations together such as these is one of the huge reasons why they are still so close. Getting away from it all with those who are essential in our lives is crucial for us all.

14 Go Big Or Go Home


One thing that has always been well-known about the Kardashians is that they have a huge family. Kris Jenner had four children with the late Robert Kardashian, then had two more with Bruce Jenner, who already had quite a few other kids from previous marriages. Over the years each of the children (except for Kendall) has had one or more kids. This means there are a lot of kids running around and a lot of reason to have family time all the time. According to Glamour, the Kardashian family has grown from a lot since their father’s passing. They have added spouses and children, and it continues to build all the time. What’s not to love about a big family?

13 No Judgement


Another aspect of the Kardashian family is that most of them are not judgmental. They love to help others, as viewers have seen time and time again on their reality TV show. Just recently, Khloe admitted to People Magazine that her sister Kim is the most nonjudgmental when it comes to mothering tips and how her other sisters choose to take care of their children. Kim has three children, and according to Khloe, she knows how to help other mothers who may be having a rough time without the slightest bit of judgment—this is a good quality for a celebrity such as Kim Kardashian.

12 Heart-Warming Kardashian Klan


Some celebrities don’t bother to help others out because they are more worried about themselves than anyone else, but the Kardashians are better than that. There have been a plethora of times in which the Kardashians have shown their hearts by helping out the people that need it the most. According to VH1 News, Kim Kardashian, in particular, has been in the news for the past couple of months for paying off bills and getting her lawyers involved with people who need proper representation. She felt for these people and their stories which caused her to get involved out of her love for others.

11 Media Opportunities


The Kardashians have been on TV non-stop since the premiere of their hit TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. On the off times when the show was not on the air, they were airing spin-offs such as Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami, Khloe and Lamar or Kim and Kourtney Take New York. Since they first appeared on TV in 2007, there has not been a time when they weren’t on TV. According to Medium, they are so famous because of TV but also because of the side projects they work on, and this is why they continue to get media opportunities.

10 Drama, Mama


One thing fan and viewers can do without is the amount of drama that comes along with the Kardashians. According to Elle, the girls have most recently been feuding with Kourtney over her not wanting to be a Kardashian anymore and the way she has been acting since she started a relationship with her now ex-boyfriend. Being that these three girls are very close in age, they often clash with each other. Sisters will be sisters, and there are going to be times in which they fight for no reason, and this was one of those times we could have done without.

9 We Say Spoiled Like It's A Bad Thing

Rush Hour Daily

Spoiling kids is something some parents do without noticing until it’s too late. The Kardashians have a good amount of money, so it seems as though they might spoil their kids, which nobody wants to deal with. According to E! News, Kim has admitted that she would never spoil her kids. The mom of three wants her kids to have to work for everything they did just as she did and not spoiling them allows them to do that. This way they understand what it is like to have to work for anything they want.

8 The Nanny Factor


The life of a typical Kardashian is always shown to the world on their reality TV show. The one thing we don’t often see with them on these shows are the many kids that they all have. Kourtney and Kim both have three, while Khloe, Kylie and Rob have one. These kids are almost never seen on the show, which means they are with nannies virtually all of the time. The girls know about having a nanny because they had one as children as well, according to People Magazine. It would be nice, though, to see these kids being taken care of by their parents more so than their nannies.

7 Relationship Faux Pas

Brit + Co

A few years back Kim shocked the world by her quick engagement to basketball player Kris Humphries. Less than six months after they tied to knot the couple was calling it quits. According to Vanity Fair, Kim did not admit to the relationship being fake but said that she felt a pressure to get married based on her age. She had just turned 30 years old, and her biological clock was ticking for her to start the rest of her life. Although this may be true, a lot of fans believed that this relationship was strictly for views. Will the truth ever be known?

6 Gossip Milling

Us Weekly

Being in the public eye as they are causes a lot of drama for the Kardashian family every now and again. Recently there was a lot of gossip as to why Khloe wasn’t spending Thanksgiving with her family—instead, she stayed home with her boyfriend and daughter, according to Page Six. For a family that is in the media so often, the gossip is sure to spread. This is something fans can sure do without, being that there are so many other things in the world to be worried about rather than whether or not Khloe spent the last holiday with her family.

5 Oh Those Photos

The Hollywood Reporter

Since the Kardashians are known for their good looks, this means there is no shortage of tempting photos between their magazine covers and Kim’s regular social media posts. The problem with this is that so many little girls look up to the Kardashians and for them to see a lot of censored photos is not such a good idea. Yahoo News recently reported that the girls—especially Kourtney, who recently had a photoshoot—should really think about what they would and wouldn’t want their kids to see before agreeing to take photos. Hopefully, the more they age, the fewer photos they will release.

4 Too Much Information


Fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians will know how intimate some moments can become on this particular show. There have been several times in which they may have let fans see too much on the show, and according to Fox News, the girls are beginning to regret sharing some things. Allowing the entire world to know pretty much everything about you can get tiring—having a lot of people feeling as if they know you based off of an hour a week of a television show can be exhausting. This is something fans might enjoy about them because it makes them seem like real people rather than fake.

3 Acting Skills On Fleek


The Kardashians are pretty famous but not because of their acting skills. Kim is the only one out of the bunch that has tried her hand at acting, and she has not been so successful. According to Daily Mail critics said she was too nasally and just a flat-out awful actress in Temptation. Bad reviews flooded in after the release of the movie, leaving Kim pretty sad about what everybody thought of her acting skills. Maybe she should stick to reality TV, makeup lines and magazine photoshoots, and she might be safe from any more awful scrutiny regarding her acting abilities.

2 Singing Isn't Their Strong Suit But...


Similar to acting, singing is also something Kim Kardashian tried to do at one point. But most recently, the Kardashian-Jenner girls all got together to sing their mother a special 60th birthday song. Although it was a super sweet gesture, the girls could have done without the autotune. According to Elite Daily, the video is very cringeworthy based on how much the adult girls sound as if they are little kids. Not only that, but the video sounds as if they are talking rather than singing. At least they tried to do something nice for their mom on her special day!

1 Heartbreak On The Air

E! News

There's nothing quite like airing one's personal indiscretions and heartbreaks on television for the whole world to see. We can't imagine being in a position where our fans—and those who are anything but—get to see the inner workings of our daily lives, right down to the breakups and makeups. Viewers get a sneak peek into the lives of the Kardashians and many might cry right alongside them when things happen that we all saw coming, like Scott and Kourt's eventual splitting up. We felt Kourtney's pain when she remarked, "I've worked so hard to keep this family together," as reported by E! Online.
