That’s right it’s been 10 years since the iconic trio, of three very close sisters, impacted our lives with theirs. Along with their mom/manager, or as they say it “Momager,” their brother, two younger half-sisters, and step father. Let’s start from the beginning.
Kris Jenner, being the matriarch of the family, had four kids with Robert Kardashian, one of O.J. Simpson’s attorneys in the 1994 trial, and then later divorced, and married Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner, who already had 4 kids of his own.
They then had their first kid together, Kendall Jenner, but they weren’t finished just yet, they wanted one more child, so Kendall could grow up with a sibling, then the world was introduced to Kylie Jenner.
Kourtney Mary Kardashian is the oldest child of Robert and Kris. She is an American television personality, socialite, businesswoman and model. In 2007, she and her family were picked to star in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. For the past 11 years her and Scott Disick were in an on and off relationship but never married, and their final split resulted in co-parenting their three kids, Mason, Penelope, And Reign.
Kimberly Kardashian-West, the second child but most recognized Kardashian, started off her celebrity career by modeling. She co-owns a clothing line, and a few stores nationwide, with her two sisters. Throughout the ten years we’ve seen Kim go through many relationships, and even a few marriages but for the past 5 year’s she’s been with the Famous Rapper known as Kanye west, their love resulted in them getting married in Paris, and starting a family, beginning their first child, North West, and her younger brother Saint West and is currently expecting another through a surrogate.
Khloé Alexandra Kardashian the third child of Robert and Kris, Khloe is probably the most sensitive Kardashian. She didn’t necessarily start modeling like her two sister, she was more insecure about her weight, but ended up not letting it get to her and committed her life to living a healthy life style, and working out with personal trainer Gunnar Peterson. She was married to NBA player Lamar Odom from 2009-2016. They had a calm divorce, especially since Odom was having some health issues. She claimes they were having problems for a few years now, but that never meant she stopped loving him. She also wrote and released her own book in 2015,”Strong looks better Naked.”
Robert Arthur Kardashian the fourth and final child between Robert and Kris. Rob is an American television personality and businessman. Unlike his sisters he wasn’t known for modeling, but is known for graduating from USC Marshall School of Business, and running his own sock line. He married Angela Renée White, professionally known as Blac Chyna, in 2016 they then divorced a year later, in 2017, but before the divorce they conceived a daughter of their own, Dream Renee Kardashian. They even stared in their own one season reality televison series, “Rob and Chyna.”
Kendall Nicole Jenner, The Kardashians first Half sister, and Kris’s fifth child, after the four Kardashians, and also Bruce’s fifth child, after he had four Jenners of his own. Kendall is an American fashion model and television personality. She was only twelves years old when Kuwtk started and fourteen when she started modeling. She appeared in the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, co-owns her own clothing line with her sister, Kendall+Kylie, and co-wrote a book with her sister, “Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia”. Kendall is currently modeling around the country.
Kylie Kristen Jenner, the sixth and final sister, born in 1997 being Kris and Bruce’s second and final child together. Although Kylie is the youngest, that shouldn’t fool you, she is the new rising sister. She is an American reality television personality, model, entrepreneur, socialite, and business women. Being one of the young ones was an advantage in her career, she harnessed her families fame, and was able to launch her own Cosmetic line and doesn’t even have to spend on advertising, all her advertising is done via social media with 23.1 Million followers on twitter and 98.4 Million followers on Instagram. Recent rumors have claimed Kylie is four months pregnant with Travis Scott’s child, and just a few days after those rumors submerged, so have rumors of her older sister Khloe being pregnant as well. At this point nothing had been confirmed, nor has anything been declined. Kylie recently premiered her own reality show “Life of Kylie”.
Now that you know a bit about each sister, you can probably imagine how stressful their mother Kris would be. She never really got away from her kids, although they moved out, she is their manager. A lot of people would say ‘don’t mix family and business’ but that never stopped Kris. Raising her two youngest kids, while still managing her older kids and husband Bruce. She has gone through a lot, with having six kids, running her and her kids careers, her two divorces, the transition of bruce, and the death of her ex husband robert, in 2003, although she wasn’t a widow she did take the death very hard.
Her and Bruce Jenner divorced in 2015, although he isn’t a Kardashian he was a big impact on their lives, and ours. Bruce came out as wanting to be transgender after the divorce, and later fulfilled that goal. He then picked up his new-found identity as Caitlyn Jenner, and received her own show ‘I AM CAIT’ although it wasn’t a hit like KUWTK, it still impacted the lives of so many people who were too afraid to come out into the LGBT community.
Through out the years the Kardashians have gone through a lot together, on and off the show, in 2003, their father, Robert Kardashian passed away due to esophageal cancer. Ever since then the sisters and Bruce we’re committed to making sure the younger siblings would live healthy, stable lives. Bruce shared in an interview, that he promised Robert that he would take care of his kids, and do everything in his power to set them off send them off with successful careers, and making sure Robert Jr would attend and graduate from a university.
That about sums up the family, and what they do, or what you need to know. Clearly there is too much to tell, but if you want to know a bit more about the “Modern day Brady Bunch” tune in every sunday on E!.
