Reality Television. Some people like it. Some people absolutely hate it. I'll admit some reality TV shows are pointless and staged, but for me, Keeping Up With The Kardashians is different. Starting out with an opening scene of a family joking around and fighting can make you smile and want to know more. The family of 6 kids always has something going on they make the show very busy and intriguing. The show displays different situations of their lives that make the audience connect to the family. For example: 4 divorces, deaths, and the way they deal with family rumors. It's important that a reality show connects to the viewers because that is how the shows get a new contract each year.
The show has been on the air since 2007, so obviously some people like it. They don't try to make themselves sound perfect. They are real humans who screw up. They may mess up on a different scale but I can relate because I'm not perfect. It helps the viewers feel better about the problems they may have in their life. For example my grandma was sick a few months ago, and I was upset about it, but then I saw the struggle Scott (Kourtney's boyfriend) had when he lost both of his parents in a matter of months. The Kardashians are very family-orientated, so no matter what's going on they stick together. The show triggers the viewers' emotions wanting them to keep watching to make sure the main reality stars recover.
The Kardashians go on many family vacations, and while being on vacation they do community service. For example, they went to Thailand to get away from the craziness in America, but made time to play with the kids at the orphanage near by. This shows that even though they have a lot of money and fame, they still help others in need. This stands out from other reality television shows that are focused only on the family and their glamorous life.
The one factor of the show that you must understand is that it's not scripted or staged. The Kardashians are a very dramatic family. It doesn't matter if they are on camera or not they will still do the crazy activities, or react the same to a situation that comes up. Before 2007, I would always hear their name in the headlines for the ridiculous shenanigans they did, so after receiving attention by the press the directors figured the Kardashians would be a perfect fit for a reality show. Therefore, it's one thing if you don't like the family themselves, but the show is just displaying how they are, it doesn't automatically make the show horrible and fake. This is what I appreciate the most about Keeping up With The Kardashians.
Whenever you are scrolling through the channels, and you see Keeping Up With The Kardashians on, don't immediately switch the channel. Give them a chance. You may actually realize you can relate to them, and will be able to create your own view on the family.
I was SOOO Happy that you two looked at pictures, you could see in your eyes that you really DO love each other. I've been watching your show Faithfully since the beginning and it makes me sooo MAD that the HATERS continually cut your show down. If they don't like the show then QUIT watching it. It's that simple. But don't think all your viewers think bad of your family, Because I love everyone of you. You are all sooo Beautiful and I can only imagine that putting yourself and your family in the reality show has to be draining at times. So whatever the HATERS are saying, it's only them being jealous of such a good looking family who has got it going on. I'm one of your fans that can't wait to see what's going to happen every week.

About Kendals I watched the show tonight and CANNOT believe how Kendall is disrespecting you. I would make HER take care of her own damn huge dogs. It was funny tho when Kim sprayed the room and then threw the paper towels in it. LOL But really they arent Kims dogs. Kendall is thinking and acting like shes too good to do anything to help. I have a 30 yr old daughter myself and she would NEVER talk to me that way. I was dissapointed in Khloe tonight too. I feel bad her and Lamar are no longer together but now since shes lost weight shes acting uppity too and disrespecting you too. Kris you are just a wonderful mom and sometimes the kids treat you badly. i feel bad for you.
Honestly this family has more love and care than most people. You can't just trust what you see in a magazines say. The show is great and at the end of the day you know that they are good people, and this is what they chose for there life. If you don't like it don't come and write a negative review, don't ruin it for the fans who love to watch the show because it makes them happy.
What a horrible portrayal of adult women. All they care about is money, clothes, how they look and what club, bar or restuarant they are going to. . Life is so much more than that. Kim is the the others are not far behind. What is so sad is that they are making a TON of money and there are people out here who are doing wonderful things and can not make ends meet. They are sickening.
I truly think khloe and Kourtney are just two jealous bitches of Kim, and they try to bring her down all the time and try to make it okay but that's not okay. Kim is a very talented lady and she needs to know that. As a sister myself I know and understand how frustrating it can be, but you guys really need to grow up and be supportive. I was fairly disappointed in a couple of episodes. I love you Kardashians. I am so addicted to this show its like bizarre. I am so happy I have Netflix, so I wont mix an episode, and I can continue to go back and watch the old ones. Great show for the most part, because its so real its unbelievable. Like I wouldn't ever think of you ladies as wild as you are, but I Love it.
This family alone represents everything that is wrong with our society. Between these overcompensated shells of people complaining about some nonsensical issue, and the "drama" they cause and then shove down our throats and say "hey look what Kim is doing!" I feel myself losing perspective on my own life. Good lord help you if this is something you enjoy. There is a point where it stops being funny and it starts being a real sociological issue. "If you don't like it don't watch" great advice, I won't. "I think it has become so anoying how many people, when they just don't like somenone, call her a slut and him a stupid yeah, well if you make money from a sex tape you might want to rethink trying to defend yourself in that respect, and if you don't want to be called a moron don't name your child after a direction. 1, I'm sorry i caught even a minute of this show in passing.
I think it has become so anoying how many people, when they just don't like somenone, call her a slut and him a stupid moron... I don't understand why you can't just judge what is true and by that say what you don't like at a person.
I don't think the Kardashians are whores or sluts, when one of them is married, the oldest hasn't had a different man in her life than her boyfriend with whom she is now for over 5 years and has 2 children with and the third does not behave slutty in whatever way either.
I would'nt say about one of them to be super intellectual or intelligent, however they must be pretty smart to be ending up where they have or not?!
Also as many have asked, I am for example one to keep their ratings up :) I find them funny and the show entertaning. It's one if those shows where fights being stupid and the children being disrespectful and bad educated is just what makes it fun to watch.
Don't like it, don't watch it, simple as that! I happen to love this show. The family dynamics and the quirky things they do make me laugh. Although there are plenty of shows on these days that I would say are truly "trash", I don't trash talk or slander those in the show or those who watch it. I just choose to not watch them. Everyone does wrong in one way or another so to be fair, those of you calling the Kardashian girls whores and trash talking about them makes you no better, it makes you a sinner all the same. So you don't care for the entitled and there is plenty out there to watch. And for the person who said something about Kim being still married to Kris Humphries when she had her wrong, not very smart and have no idea what your talking about. Kim was divorced approx. 2 months before North was born. This kind of thing happens all the time these days but because of who she is, you'll publicly trash her. Everyone makes mistakes, the rich and famous are not exempt from this and the Kardashians show a glimpse of this and their life, which many of us could learn something from as far as communication skills, work ethic, family togetherness, etc.. Just remember those who judge others are usually the ones who are jealous or have plenty of their own issues. AND if you don't like the show don't watch it!
Take this show off the air. These girls are sluts and why do people watch them to keep their ratings up? Or are they just rich enough to pay their way into our lives. I don't care about them, their fashion, their men, or their pregnancies.
If E! wants to earn respect as a television station, it should stop airing shit like this. It's all about spoiled sluts who think they have to worry about real problems. They don't have worry about paying bills and putting food on the table. They have to worry about everyone finding out how big sluts they are (Which by just looking at it, it's pretty obvious) while keeping that gold spoon in their mouth
Why would anyone gives these morons a show? There's nothing appealing about them, their voices are so obnoxious it makes me want to punch a hole in my wall. But more importantly, they're all attention seekers, and Kim is a complete whore. Their family dynamic is screwed up because it's obvious that the manger; oops I mean mother, favors her little whore over the rest of the children. Heed my warning and don't watch this show, In fact don't watch any of their shows and then maybe one day no one will care about them and they can go back to being stupid wannabe celebrities.
I think this show is kinda dumb. Everyone is saying this show is not reality like it should be, that they script it. why would you script a reality show? it's suppose to be reality. one thing that's kinda dumb is how in one of the spin-offs, Kourtney was on the toilet in front of everyone, and Khloe was just standing there acting like a total bitch. I'll admit, it is creppy to go to the bathroom in front of everyone, but it shouldn't be treated like a big deal considering everyone uses the toilet. so this show is dumb, I don't recommend watching it, I only watched it a few times because I was bored.
I THINK THAT KRIS JENNER SHOULD BE VERY HAPPY SHE HAS MANAGED TO "PIMP" HER DAUGHTERS FOR FINANCIAL GAIN. HER DAUGHTERS HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO TALENT AND ARE COMPLETELY OVER RATED. KIM IS STILL MARRIED AND NOW HAS A BABY WITH KANYE. WHAT KIND OF AN EXAMPLE IS THIS SETTING FOR YOUNG MINDS. KIM YOU ARE A WHORE.
I predicted a year and a half ago that Kim would get pregnant as soon as this shows ratings started to drop. I was right. Am I physic? No, these idiots are just that predictable. This show is on E! so often, they should rename it the K channel. If Kris sees this, I'm sure she will try to get that done. Ryan Seacrest shuld be ashamed of himself for giving the world this crap, but he relishes in crap and people keep rewarding him for it. I don't know who is dumber, the Kardashians or the people who are teir fans.
I don't believe that Kim is a whore nor do I believe that Kris brought her girls up to be 'gold digging sluts'. Celebrities not getting married before having babies has actually become more of a trend and I'm certain Kim Kardashian is not the first to do this. I think that it's humorous how people judge these ladies the way that they do. Like their lives are any better. Instead of being spiteful, don't pay attention to them, it's that simple.
How sad that Kris Jenner had not EVEN seen her mother in 2 years. What a joke that she is SO busy. Her mother has had TWO cancers and she doesn't even care. She cries stupid tears saying Oh I don't know what to do when she is not around...What a joke. Do something about it now. Have her live in her mammoth house. Take care of her instead of leaving her alone. Walk the walk--don't talk the talk!! Actually, producers should have been ashamed of themselves even broadcasting that Kris is such a selfish person. Her true colors really came out. Her DAUGHTERS made her go!
This show and shows like it are produced very cheaply and are aimed at simple people! I have just read some of the comments and I am astounded! One person said that the kardashians are real people with real problems! Are you kidding! This show is made up if you didn't realize! The events that take place are for ratings! This is a no talent family with an intelligent mother who knows how to promote no talent children! They are not real people! D
Please stop watching this crap and make the producers of shows like this realize that there are people out there with a brain who want quality programming and not brain dead dribble!
Kris Jenner ...a woman that tries so hard to live her life through her daughters...because she refuses to accept her life is over...will go down as one of the most phony and evil woman ever on tv....I don't know how anybody can live with this woman...you think you're an icon lady but you're just a manipulating witch....fool yourself alllll you want but just know all of us watching just shake our head at you...you're done...makeup and designer sunglasses do nothing for you...your big herpes lip matches you perfect though.....all the tears you cry...the interviews on the show you do...everything about you is phony...you are a snake and a sneak and nothing more than a manager instead of a mom....you want it all to be about you but it's not and never will be...you just hate the fact that your name is Jenner and not kardashian don't you! You despise it....hope Bruce hits a hole in one with big red! Couldnt wait for a reason to justify you being a hooker in your own marriage....funny part is that you actually think any guy would stay with you...lol...youre done....Hope you read this because it will definitely stick with you...know why? Because its allllll true
