The Kardashian fame has been growing and growing throughout the years to the point where it’s a household name. Everyone has heard of them and everyone has their own opinion of them.

The 10th season of their show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, recently premiered. It is no coincidence that two days before it was released, it was revealed that Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the KarJenner’s, and Khloe Kardashian are both believed to be pregnant. Earlier this month it was also publicized that Kim Kardashian, arguably the most famous of the sisters, is pregnant with her husband Kanye West, via a surrogate mother.

Some believe all these pregnancies are rumors to help boost rating on the new season of their show because the rumor of Kylie’s and Khloe’s pregnancies haven’t been confirmed. This had caused many people to believe Kris Jenner, the mother of all the girls to be using all this press to promote their show. The famous “momager” is known for using her daughters to advance all of their fame.

There has also been drama surrounding Kourtney Kardashian, the oldest of the sisters. She has three children with Scott Disick and they recently broke up, to the dismay of many fans. This has brought a lot of attention to the two of them because they have children together and had been dating for many years.

This is just one layer of the fame that is the KarJenner’s. Some people love it, some people hate. Senior Macy Blake loves watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians and has been since season 1.

“I’m looking forward to keeping up with Kourtney and Scott’s drama because I ship ‘Scourt’ (the couple’s nickname),” Blake said.

While Blake is one of the many dedicated fans, the people who don’t approve of the KarJenner lifestyle are very critical.

“I would say my least favorite is (Kris Jenner). I feel like she instigates and adds to them being in the media and being attention seekers. I feel like she used and taught them how to be a sensation and used that to their financial advantage,” Human Geographer teacher Maureen Stanford said.

Stanford doesn’t believe in the KarJenner lifestyle and pities their constant need for attention and fame.

“I feel kind of sorry for them in a way. They are taught to crave or seek some of that attention. I think they might be unhappy even when they claim they are happy,” Stanford said, “I wonder if they had to do it over again, would they choose life with money but being on the spotlight or would they decide to stay out of the limelight and be less wealthy.”
