But maybe you’re in a rush, so here’s some great highlights:
Kim Kardashian West said she will not be running for office anytime soon. (A previous time she was asked, she said “never say never.”)
“No, I don’t think so,” she said. “It would be probably the most stressful job in the world, and I don’t think that’s for me.”
Kanye West’s involvement in the Kardashian business empire, along with “momager” Kris Jenner, is pretty intense:
If Kris is the founder and chief executive of Kardashian Inc., Kanye has become the creative director. He frequently texts with the producers, offering input on the opening images which initially had a 1970s sitcom feel and now feature the women in nude tones and sleek, silvery poses. And he shared his thoughts on the backdrop of the confessionals, which now bathe the women in amber light. “He’s a real creative force, clearly, and had thoughts on marketing, thoughts on presentation of the show, on the opening title sequence,” said Adam Stotsky, the president of E!
And he makes home décor decisions! Kris Jenner explained, after a recent home visit from Mr. West:
He pointed to a new piece of furniture. “He said, ‘I really think that little entry table would look better over there. So what did I do? I moved the entry table,” she said.
After Kanye urged Kim, his wife, to turn down $1 million for an Instagram post from a company that he said rips him off, he gave her a $1 million on Mother’s Day. Kim Kardashian said:
“He wrote me a check for that amount and said ‘Thank you so much for always being supportive and not posting,’” she said.
Kendall Jenner addressed her involvement in promoting the Fyre Festival, a luxury music festival that turned into a major debacle in 2017.
“You get reached out to by people to, whether it be to promote or help or whatever, and you never know how these things are going to turn out, sometimes it’s a risk,” she said. “I definitely do as much research as I can, but sometimes there isn’t much research you can do because it’s a starting brand and you kind of have to have faith in it and hope it will work out the way people say it will.” Even when she trusts her collaborators, “you never really know what’s going to happen.”
Kylie Jenner addressed whether she was, in-fact, a self-made billionaire.
“I can’t say I’ve done it by myself,” she said. “If they’re just talking finances, technically, yes, I don’t have any inherited money. But I have had a lot of help and a huge platform.”
And yes, Kylie Jenner addresses rumors that she had slashed the price of the lip kit named after Jordyn Woods after a falling out.
What’s the number one thing you should think about the Kardashians? Perhaps it’s this:
“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” started as a way for the family to get famous. With their glammed up mix of high-low culture (i.e. driving a Bentley but eating Chipotle), it has since become a kind of infomercial for the Kardashian Industrial Complex. And, regardless of what you think of what the Kardashians are selling, their never-ending hustle is an undeniable lesson in female entrepreneurship.
