It's been 10 years since Keeping Up With The Kardashians first aired on TV. This week, we examine how the world's most famous family has entertained us, angered us, and made an indisputable impact on our culture.
Some sources are reporting that Kim Kardashian's tweets were inspired by executive producer Jeffrey C Jenkins, who helps make the show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. In a now-deleted Instagram post, Jenkins wrote "Congrats my beautiful Khloe! You will be a great mom! God bless you all three! Mwah!!! @khloekardashian." The photo no longer appears on his page.
Original story follows.
There's a whole lot of news out there about the Kardashians right now. After reports that Kylie Jenner is pregnant surfaced last week, sources dropped yet another bombshell: Khloé Kardashian is expecting, too. Maybe. To both. Since none of these announcements have come directly from the Kardashians themselves, it's always worth being skeptical. Kim, for one, has had enough.
"Let me just say this..." she tweeted Wednesday morning. "People who supposedly work with us 'confirming' details they know nothing about! Especially when we havent even communicated with them SMH."
This is definitely disconcerting. The Kardashian-Jenner empire is such a high-profile, tight-knit force, and loyalty is the most important quality — and that's been a problem before. During Life Of Kylie, Kris Jenner told Kylie that she was too friendly with her staff, and Khloe Kardashian mysteriously split from longtime stylist Monica Rose back in April.
"This sounds like a very fake story..." she wrote after an outlet tweeted a report that she was upset by Kylie's rumoured pregnancy. "And speaking of fake stories...The media is super shady for posting fake quotes from Caitlyn when she hasn’t spoke to anyone."
Kris Jenner has expressed similar sentiments, saying that any news about the pregnancies can only be trusted if it comes from the women themselves.
"I just woke up this morning. [Kylie's] not confirmed anything," she told The Cut. "I think it’s kind of wild that everyone is just assuming that that’s just happening. Something happens every single day. You never know what is going to break at any moment."
You can say that again. For the first time, we're having trouble keeping up.
