While it may be easy to Keep Up With the Kardashians—given that you can’t go a day without hearing about their lives—the Jenner sisters, Kendall and Kylie, are a little more discreet.
They’ve been under the public eye most of their lives, and are now considered some of Hollywood’s hottest and most talked about stars.
Yet, there is always something new we can learn. Take Kylie’s lip enhancement for example. For months, it was speculated that she had work done, but instead of admitting it, Kylie tiptoed around the truth, emphasizing the fact that her puffy lips were thanks to lip liner. It was only revealed just recently on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that Kylie did, in fact, have her lips enhanced.
This is all proof that the media and public are obsessed with this family and the younger sisters are becoming two of the most famous members of the clad, please read on and see if you knew any of the following facts.
10. Tyga supported Kylie after the Caitlyn Jenner reveal
June 1st was a big day for the Jenner/Kardashian clan as their father and stepfather revealed himself as a woman by the name of Caitlyn Jenner. The reveal was done in a big way, putting Caitlyn on the cover of Vanity Fair. The image above was taken a few hours after the image went viral and you can see that Tyga was there by his girlfriend’s side, ready to support her. According to various sources Tyga is very supportive of Kylie and has made sure to be there during this difficult time.
9. Kendall dropped her last name
As she’s been taking the modeling world by storm, it’s no surprise that Kendall wanted to disassociate herself from being both a Kardashian and a Jenner. In 2014, she made headlines after her profile on her modeling agency’s website, The Society Management, showed that she was featured as just “Kendall.”
While she told Us Weekly, that she had dropped it for months and it “was just my choice,” it has been speculated that she went through with the change as a way to separate her famous family name from her modeling career. It was also reported that she didn’t want people thinking that she was landing major fashion gigs just because of her parents and sisters. If anything, she has said, it’s made it harder to get fashion gigs.
8. Kendall and Kylie went to a sex-themed club
The sisters made headlines after they were photographed leaving Vignette Lounge in West Hollywood, a sex-themed nightclub that is 21-and-over. At the time, the girls were 16 and 17.
TMZ interviewed the manager of the club, in which he swore that the bouncers had checked IDs at the door. He insisted that both Kylie and Kendall had shown 21+ IDs.
They had visited the club during its Wax Rabbit night, which is held every Tuesday. According to TMZ, this features “what the club calls ‘a new, voyeuristic, hip-hop and nudity nightclub experience.'” Given the fact that what they did was illegal, the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control had said they were considering launching an investigation.
7. Kendall and Kylie’s middle names
Kylie’s middle name, Kristin, may be simple, but it’s Kendall’s that has a major back-story. She was given the middle name, Nicole, by mother Kris as a way to honor Nicole Brown Simpson, whom she was close to before her tragic death that sparked the highly controversial murder trial of O.J. Simpson. Kris and husband at the time Rob Kardashian were close friends of the couple, Rob even gained national recognition as Simpson’s friend and defence attorney during his murder trial.
6. Kylie did get her lips done
As mentioned earlier, Kylie took a while before admitting that she had lip injections done. But thanks to an episode of Keep Up With the Kardashians, viewers learned that she did enhance her lips. For months, Kylie’s lips were all people could talk about, as they were speculated in the media, the #KylieJennerLipChallenge went viral and tons of YouTube beauty tutorials featured how to get “Kylie Jenner lips.”
In the clip, she admits to having a lip enhancement procedure done and that she had always been insecure about them.
5. Kylie can sing
Although it was rumored that Kylie was going to start a singing career as a way to become the next Katy Perry, she took to Twitter to dismiss it. “I respect everyone’s art! but I don’t want to be the next anybody. I just want to be the next Kylie Jenner.”
Earlier this month, she posted a video to Snapchat that showed her singing. Fans, however, speculated that she was lip-synching.
4. Kendall rarely wears make-up
In the modelling world, Kendall may have to wear makeup, ranging from classic to downright funky, but as for her downtime, she rather not wear it. In an interview with Glamour, she shared that she rarely wears makeup, in fact she prefers to be without it, but always wears sunscreen. Other beauty tips of hers include always having lip balm and moisturizer on hand.
3. They both have their own homes
Most teenagers don’t live in their own private mansions and own expensive cars but the Jenner sisters certainly do.
Last May, Kendall reportedly dished out $1.39 million on a condo in Los Angeles. The condo has two bedrooms, and comes with a heated indoor pool along with its own wine storage area – all things that an 18-year-old clearly needs.
Kylie has her own digs too. Earlier this year, she purchased a $2.7 million mansion that is reportedly only a block away from where Kourtney and Khloe reside. The luxurious home is approximately 4,900 square-feet, comes with 5 bedrooms and 6 washrooms. Oh, and it has its own home theatre, 3-car garage, pool and spa. Not bad for a 17-year-old.
2. They help each other get over the haters
When Kendall and Kylie took the stage at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards to introduce their brother-in-law, Kanye West, they were met with boos.
An insider told Hollywood Life, “Kylie took it harder than Kendall. Kendall didn’t really care, but Kylie seemed pretty bothered by it backstage. But Kendall eased Kylie’s thoughts, and told her that there’s nothing they can do about it, so stressing over it would be a waste of time.”
It’s been reported that mother Kris, has hired an image expert to help the girls get the respect they deserve.
1. Their novel majorly flopped
They may have talent in singing, modeling and selfie-taking, but when it comes to writing the talent may be lacking. Their dystopian novel, Rebels: City of Indra which was written by a ghostwriter and released last June, has been a major flop. To date, only 13,000 copies have been sold.
Reviews of the book on Amazon also got major blows. The rating on their novel currently sits at only two stars, with reviews calling it “garbage.”Ouch.
