Kim Kardashian is a little box of BIG surprises, isn’t she? In a video interview with Elle, Kim had to rewrite (or confirm) weird headlines about the Kardashians. After reading the headline Fear Not, Kim Kardashian’s Hair Will Always Be Done, Per Her Will’ she confirmed that there is indeed a clause in her will stating that in case of a debilitating illness, she needs to have her hair, makeup AND nails done at all times. “I made a section [in my will] that if I am so out of it that I can’t even communicate and I am like s***ting on myself, I definitely need my hair, my nails and my makeup done,” she said on camera. Errr, okay then…
It’s well known that the Kardashian-Jenner family is rolling in it – and it doesn’t look like that’ll change anytime soon. In fact, their net worths just keeps on growing. Kylie Jenner is set to become a billionaire by the end of the 2022 with her cosmetics line and steal Kim’s throne as the wealthiest of them all. While Kris Jenner just signed a deal to extend the Keeping Up with the Kardashians contract with its network. The deal’s value, you ask? A whopping 150 million dollars.
Remember Ray J, Kim Kardashian’s noughties boyfriend, with whom she made a sex tape? Well, nowadays Ray is also a reality star. And his future in the telly seems just as promising as Kim’s (if not more). The singer stars in Love & Hip Hop, a reality series that has on its first season *out-rated* Keeping Up With The Kardashians, with 3.6 million viewers. Woah!
Mrs. Kardashian-West took to her website share with fans hers and Kanye’s post-concert traditions. In between pics of Kanye’s concerts, she writes: “After every show, I always greet Kanye with a black Versace towel and a glass of water in a Versace glass. And there was a fun slushy machine in the friends and family room”.
After North West was born, Kim sent fake pictures of “baby North” to friends, just to test them and see who would try to sell the shots to tabloids. Surprise, surpise… they tried.
Kim also shared on her website 20 things no one knows about her. Which included: she sleeps with her eyes slightly open and it scares the shit out of people; she has a fear of heights because when she was 20 years-old she went sky diving; she knows the alphabet in sign language; she hates cardboard and the sound the Starbucks sleeve makes when you take it off (so she leaves the room and has someone take it off for her). WTF Kim?!
North’s first birthday was Coachella themed. The Kidchella party, as invitees called it, had even a ferris wheel and all festival-worthy décor. Baby North wore a flower headband and suede ensemble – adorable.
Kim Kardashian revealed in a tweet that she blow-dries all of her jewellery before she puts it on. But why?! In the tweet, Kim explained: “Weird Kim fact – I blow dry all my jewelry before I put it on! I can’t stand putting on cold jewelry, it gives me the chills!” (sic)
Clever, but also, is jewellery chills a big problem?!
It turns out that Kim Kardashian-West has a very special secret skill – she can smell tooth decay. How lovely. She claims her hidden talent is recognising the “specific” scent of a dental cavity. She said: “I can smell when someone has a cavity. It’s a very specific smell – not a bad-breath smell – but something that is really strong.”
Kim Kardashian has been making money off her love of selfies. That’s right, when Kim attended a Revolve party in the Hamptons recently, she was reportedly paid $700,000 to spend an hour taking selfies with the ‘influencer’ guests. She was apparently there for just over an hour before being flown away on a private jet. She’s a business woman, there’s no denying it.
Did you know little North West is learning to play the violin? Kim shared a snap form one of her lessons on Snapchat recently. Fairy costume optional.
Kris Jenner recently said that she was considering changing her name back to Kardashian. Imagine it: Kris Kardashian. We’re so used to Jenner. But wait a sec, Kris later said that she won’t be going through with the formal name change out of respect for her daughters Kendall and Kylie. Speaking to Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, Kris said: “It happens to be two younger girls who have an amazing dad and I think I’m going to stay right where I am.” She continued: “It sounded good for a minute, but I went ‘you just have to respect the relationship of the entire family'”.
Kim Kardashian has revealed that the indent on her bum is due to injections issued for her psoriasis and NOT because she’s had implants, FYI.
During a live stream on her website, Kim Kardashian revealed that she has injections in her bum to cure her psoriasis, a skin conditions which causes red, dry patches. This gave her an indent on her bum, the reason many believe she’s enhanced her famous feature.
She said: “I went to go get a cortisone shot in my butt. I lived right behind Kitson. One of my neighbours was a dermatologist at Cedars.”
She continued: “I go in there and he’s like, ‘There’s a one in a billion chance that you will get a huge indent in your butt.’ Of course I get a huge indent on my butt.”
“There is a picture of me in Miami wearing an electric blue dress, and another picture of me walking down Robertson. You see the indent. And I think that’s when the rumours started, ‘She’s had implants.’”
Ahhhh, so that’s it, then.
Kendall Jenner revealed on her app recently that she didn’t attend her own high school prom. Speaking about her decision, she said: “So, I’m not sure if you knew this about me, but I didn’t go to prom. I feel like – whatever, it’s not that big of a deal!”
But what does she recommend to do instead? “Use the excuse to veg out in your comfies with classic HS flicks and homemade pizza.” Sounds like our kind of night. “Just remember, you embracing your ‘own thing’ is pretty much the most attractive trait a girl can have. No matter what you do this weekend, have a blast!” Kendall finished – Sound advice if you ask us.
In an interview with PEOPLE Stylewatch, the youngest Jenner revealed just how long it takes to groom her perfect talons. She said: “My mum always drilled it in my head to have nice, pretty nails. It’s just really important to her.”
Going on she said: “Anytime she meets someone, she’ll look at [their] fingernails. I never cared when I was younger and I hated getting my nails done. It just took up my play time. But she likes pretty nails, so that’s where I got my nail obsession.” But just how long to Kylie’s take? Brace yourselves… “I get my nails done every week. I’ve sat literally for four to five hours doing them. I used to spend so much time doing the craziest artwork.”
Cheers, Kylie. You’ve made us feel worse about our bus ride rush job.
Khloe Kardashian shocked when she revealed that she was banned from giving a speech at her sister Kim’s wedding. Speaking as a guest on James Cordon’s The Late Late Show in February 2016 she said: “I wasn’t allowed to give a speech because I tend to just ramble and I think I’m giving a compliment but maybe I’m not saying the right thing.”
Khloe explained: “So at the wedding Kim was like ‘Well you can’t give a speech.'” She later told the audience about how brother in-law Kanye teased her with the mic: “He was like taunting me, one ranter to another ranter”. In other (non-surprising) news, Khloe revealed that Kanye’s speech was an entire 45 minutes long, saying: “His speech was epic and went on for like 45 minutes.”
We daren’t think about what that speech consisted of…
In news that had made us all feel like slobs in comparison, Khloe Kardashian recently revealed she changes her bed sheets once every two days. Writing on her blog, she revealed: “You dolls know I’m insane with keeping my house in order, but I always thought everyone else was as much of a neat freak as me! I looked up what the Internet recommends and found out that maybe I’m just a little bit more fanatical about being clean than I thought.” The Kocktails with Khloe host then revealed she washes her sheets every two days, explaining: “Obviously, if I’m not in town or not sleeping in my bed I’ll wait a little, but the sheets definitely go in the wash every time after a spray tan.”
To be fair, if we had to time (and the staff) we’d do the same. There’s nothing like some fresh sheets.
It’s a little known fact that Kim Kardashian and Spencer Pratt used to ‘hang’. The typically smug Spencer Pratt decided to unearth the old friendship on Twitter recently when retweeted an old tweet Kim sent him in 2009 asking him if he was in LA. Alongside the tweet he wrote “Wow things have def changed”.
Kendall once said that Tyga was her favourite rapper, and he even performed at her sweet sixteen. The whole thing was caught on camera in an earlier episode of KUWTK where Kendall and Kylie (then 14) can be seen dancing to Tyga’s performance. Little did they know, eh? See the clip here.
Rob Kardashian is currently dating Blac Chyna which makes things kiiiind of awkward considering she is Kylie’s boyfriend Tyga’s baby-mumma. It just gets stranger.
Notice anything different between these two photos of Kris posing with Gordon Ramsay? Look closer. The momager has (quite obviously) photo-shopped him to death alongside herself. Don’t take it to heart, Gordon.
In a Twitter Q&A, one fan asked about Kim’s Chipotle order, which we learned is “a Chicken Bowl with rice, guacamole, and a little bit of cheese.” An her Starbucks order? A White Chocolate Mocha with Whipped Cream or a Soy Chai Latte.
Kris and Kylie Jenner once showed off their new $10,200 Toto toilets on Instagram. The toilet uses Actilight technology, and has an integrated UV light, special glaze to get rid of dirt, heated seat, deodoriser, and warm water sprays. Woah.
In a recent post on her website, Kendall admitted she never wanted to take modelling classes. She said: “I never took any modeling classes, It was definitely something I just had to learn over time. She continued:”Honestly, I think the only way you really learn how to model is just experiencing it and being involved in it, doing different shoots. I never really had a desire to take classes, either—it was just 100 percent experience.”
In an interview with Complex magazine in July 2015, Khloe Kardashian spoke about her ex-husband, Lamar Odom, saying: “I think Lamar’s gonna always be that person [for me] but that’s what made it so special. Even if I had it for five years or whatever, it was the best ever and I’m grateful I did. Some people don’t get that ever and I had that magic for a long time.”
When asked which of her many siblings she’d prefer to be stuck on a desert island with, Kendall revealed it was Khloe.
Kris Jenner admitted to having plastic surgery before Kim’s wedding, saying: “I needed a little freshening up for the wedding. Just doing what a girl’s gotta do!”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made sure there were plenty of lavish details at their wedding: these included a gold toilet and a marble table-top with the guests’ names etched in. Unfortunately one guest cancelled last minute (awkward).
When Kendall Jenner presented at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, she mistook the band 5 Seconds Of Summer for One Direction live on TV. Awkward – especially as she’s now friends with Harry Styles.
Former American footballer O.J. Simpson (pictured) was wrongly identified as Kim Kardashian’s godfather in 2014. Her godfather is in fact boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard.
Kim Kardashian sparked controversy in 2010 when she tweeted a photo of herself holding a kitten by the scruff of its neck. She replied to the backlash: “I have been getting negative comments regarding the way I was holding the kitty. But rest assured, the owner and vet were on set and showed me how to pick him up. The cat was not harmed in any way and is perfectly fine!”
It’s a little-known fact that Kris Jenner has founded her own church. The Kardashian matriarch teamed up with Pastor Brad Johnson in 2012 to create the California Community Church which accepts members as long as they donate $1,000 (£600) a month or 10% of their incomes.
In May 2014, Kendall Jenner bought a $1.4m, two-bedroom condo in LA.
Not to be out-done, Kylie Jenner bought a $2.7m five-bedroom, 5.5-bath mansion in Calabasas for her 18th birthday.
We may be more used to seeing Kim head-to-toe in designers but, when she’s not on the red carpet, she prefers to hang about in her PJs (just like us!). “There’s nothing I love more than getting to stay home all day and not get ready for anything, which is about half the week.” She also likes to “unwind by getting in bed and doing some work — I’ll put on a robe and answer e-mails or go online.”
A certain rapper made an appearance in Kim’s 2010 music video Jam (Turn It Up). And that rapper was Kanye West.
Kim and Kanye got engaged on her 33rd birthday.
According to the money maestros at Forbes, Kim Kardashian’s earnings almost doubled in 2015 to $53m. They added that she had “monetized fame better than any other.”
Kim gave birth to North West five weeks prior to her due date.
Rob Kardashian launched his own line of socks in 2012. The collection was called Arthur George and half-sister Kendall Jenner, who was then launching her modelling career, starred in several ads for the company.
Khloe Kardashian decided to quit Marymount High School, the Roman Catholic all-girls school in Los Angeles where her sisters studied, to be homeschooled. She said: “There was no reason for me to stay because I felt like I didn’t have any friends.” It didn’t work out too badly for the reality TV star; she graduated a year early with honours.
Kendall Jenner was also homeschooled so she could fit modelling in around studying.
Khloe suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2001 when she was involved in a car accident. She went through the windscreen, causing severe concussion and long-term memory loss.
Khloe Kardashian is North West’s godmother.
Kendall Jenner’s modelling career took off when she was 14 and signed by Wilhelmina Models.
Kylie Jenner has given her name to the “Kylie Jenner Challenge”, the practice of suctioning your lips into a small glass to increase blood flood and make them swell. This is despite the fact that Kylie has never done this herself.
Rob Kardashian briefly dated Rita Ora in the autumn of 2012, even confirming the news on Twitter.
Kendall’s first modelling job was for Forever 21 in December 2009.
After Kendall Jenner announced on social media that she was the new global face of Estée Lauder, the company’s Instagram account increased by 50,000 followers to 308,000. And this happened in just three days.
Kendall Jenner has dipped her toe into acting and in 2012 appeared in Hawaii Five-O as AJ.
She might be one of the most photographed women in the world but Kim Kardashian has been denied a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. “We don’t have reality stars on the Walk of Fame…We don’t have a category for it. We’re happy to consider reality stars once they get nominated for, or win, an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar. We’ll consider them when they’re legitimate actors or singers,” said Ana Martinez, the official spokesperson for the Walk and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
Kim has revealed that she suffers from OCD. Despite having a cleaner, she apparently double-cleans everything herself and she has her food delivered in special individual freezer bags which she orders in her fridge. “I can’t take a shower unless the bathroom is absolutely spotless, I think I’m totally OCD … Everything has to be immaculate,” she continued. “I have a cleaner who comes three times a week but I always do the cleaning on top of that,” she admitted.
Kylie Jenner’s role model is Shakira.
Kim claimed that she had sex “500 times a day” to conceive her second child with Kanye.
As early teens Kylie and Kendall Jenner once stole their father’s credit card so they could go on a massive shopping spree.
The Kardashians can thank their Armenian heritage for their enviably exotic looks – meanwhile, the name Kardashian means “son of a stonemason.”
Everyone knows that the Kardashian patriarch, the late Robert Kardashian was, rather infamously, O.J. Simpson’s defence lawyer… but did you know that Kendall Jenner’s middle name “Nicole” is in honour of Nicole Brown-Simpson? Kris was close friends with the actress before she was murdered.
Kim and fellow reality TV socialite starlet, Paris Hilton went to pre-school together. The school gates must have been a bit of a glam-fest on that street.
Kourtney Kardashian broke her collarbone after falling off her swing set when she was just five. Aww.
Meanwhile, when Khloe was a little girl, she thought she was a dog. And would bark like one all the time.
It was Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie that helped Kim to catch the attention of the LA paps, after she began attending parties as their glamorous side-kick and even bagged a cameo on their show, The Simple Life.
She may be an international star and style icon to thousands today, but growing up Kim had much humbler aspirations – and wanted to be a teacher (yes, a TEACHER).
In not keeping with the K tradition, Kourtney’s middle name is Mary. Go figure.
Kendall was named after the Ken doll – Barbie’s love interest – after a long-running family joke that her father Bruce looked like a Ken doll. Which is a pretty awesome fact.
During her high school years, Kim Kardashian worked at her father’s music marketing firm called “Movie Tunes.”
And also worked as a stylist as a teen. Her client list included Lindsay Lohan and Brandy.
Meanwhile, Kourtney’s first job was working as a movie production assistant: “I had to yell ‘cut’ and ‘rolling’ all day.” Bit more glamorous than some of our first jobs, we’ll admit…
Kourtney was stung by a scorpion in college. Weird.
She also failed two of her classes in college because she was too nervous to give speeches. Then she applied to law school and “decided not to go.”
Khloe Kardashian moved out of her parents’ home at the age of 16 and got her own apartment. Her father made her work for him every day so he could monitor her.
In true bonkers Hollywood fashion, Kim had an enormous Sweet 16-style birthday bash at 14 – with a party held at none-other than Michael Jackson’s Neverland ranch.
Kim’s ex list reads like a who’s-who of reality TV royalty. She dated none other than Newlyweds hubby to Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey…
…who later hinted that while they were dating, she would alert the paparazzi to their whereabouts so she could be photographed. Ouch.
More of Kim’s famous exes include Michael Jackson’s nephew T.J Jackson (remember, 3T? No?), sportsmen Reggie Bush and Miles Austin.
And at the tender age of 19, Kim tied the knot with music producer Damon Thomas. The two were together for four years before going their separate ways. A lifetime in Hollywood marriages…
Despite her LA darlings roots, what is frequently labelled as her catapult to stardom, was none other than a sex tape. With pal Brandy’s younger bro, Ray J, no less. Hey, we’re not judging – she’s in good company after all.
In a poll of the Top 10 Celebrity Playboy Bunnies of all time, the starlet came in third behind Marilyn Monroe and Pamela Anderson. Which ain’t bad!
Sadly, Kim wasn’t so successful when it came to breaking into acting – her “accolades” include a nomination for Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actress in the film Disaster Movie, and the big one – a Worst Actress Razzie this year for Temptation.
In a more flattering honour, Kim was named the most Googled celebrity in 2008, beating Britney Spears – who had previously held the title for four years.
Some of the Kardashians claim to suffer with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, with Kris Jenner admitting she’s “completely OCD” about her surroundings, meanwhile Kourtney claims the contents of her fridge must be lined up and perfectly organised.
Kris once played a hooker on stage in Cabaret. True story.
Kim’s favourite flick of all time is Clueless. Our kinda gal.
Meanwhile, mother Kris’ tastes are a little more old-school – Doctor Zhivago and The Sound of Music.
And Kendall’s favourites are Moulin Rouge and The Notebook (pictured here with her faked Notebook-inspired tattoo – Instagramed with the caption “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird.”)
Kim collects vintage Vogue magazines for fun.
So it must have stung a bit when Vogue honcho and fashion mistress Anna Wintour reportedly had her banned from the Met Gala in 2012. Clearly not a fan, eh?
Bruce Jenner bought his then-wife Kris a Harley-Davidson motorbike for Christmas one year. Which she crashed later that day.
Kendall and Khloe have the same shoe size, and Kendall often raids Khloe’s closet for “new” shoes in true annoying little sister style.
Kris is fatally allergic to bee stings and has to carry an EpiPen with her at all times. Scary.
Somewhat scarier, Kourtney once confessed she killed, skinned, cooked and ate a rattlesnake on a cattle drive. Impressive…
Kris is actually an avid surfer after learning as a child, growing up in sunny San Diego.
Kendall and Kylie, have both stated that of all the sisters, Khloe is the most like a second mother to them. Kylie said: “She’s always the one disciplining us and scolding us. I’m so scared of her!”
Kourtney has a major fear of spiders, and once didn’t go into her bathroom for two months because she saw one there.
Kris revealed that she has had to have the same three grey hairs coloured every two weeks for the last 30 years. Those are some pretty determined greys.
If Khloe could only wear one designer for the rest of her life, it would be Alexander Wang.
Somewhat controversially, questions arose surrounding Khloe’s paternity after Kris recalled a past affair in her autobiography – and also due to a long-standing joke about Khloe’s naturally-blonde hair. Somewhat bizarrely, Khloe swabbed her mother’s mouth in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians for a DNA test – which we’re guessing wouldn’t really help…?
Kylie’s… well, she’s not the greatest driver. Less than three weeks after getting her licence, she was in a car crash (and thankfully uninjured!). Then just a couple of months later, she got ticketed for speeding.
