Ah, the Kardashians. Who hasn’t heard of them by now? It’s hard to turn on the TV, view an entertainment blog or even go on social media without seeing some mention of the famous family. From the matriarch Kris and her obsession with fame (which she exercises through managing her children), to Bruce’s sex change into Caitlyn, to Kim’s regular shenanigans, Kylie’s dating life and Khloe’s marital struggles, there’s always something to talk about when it comes to the Kardashians. Frankly, it’s actually hard to keep up.
Even though most of the Kardashian clan is quick to say that they work hard, the truth is, they’re pretty lazy when it comes to being celebrities. After all, the public seems to be enamored with them, so they really don’t have to do much in order to get attention. Of course, there are also instances in which members of the Kardashian family have been caught being lazy in real life. Perhaps they feel that they’ve “arrived,” and don’t have to do all the things that “normal” people have to do in order to get through the day. Here are 14 times the Kardashians proved that they are among the laziest of celebrities.
14. They Are Constantly Posting Pictures
Every few minutes or so, a member of the Kardashian family is posting a picture on social media. Sure, lots of celebs do this to gain followers and to update fans about upcoming projects. However, the Kardashians do this all the time. All they have to do is post a picture of them doing anything. They could be lounging around in sweatpants, or drinking a cup of coffee, or crossing the street. But once the pictures hit the internet, millions of people are more than willing to post their unbiased opinions on the photos. This instantly increases their popularity, and even boosts the chances that they’ll be called for more interviews if the photos are particularly interesting. It’s a pretty lazy way to maintain fame, but we can’t say it’s not working.
13. Kim Sleeps In Her Makeup
According to The Daily Mail, Kim Kardashian sleeps with her makeup on, because she’s too lazy to wash it off before going to bed. Even though she has a glam squad who is ready to make her up on demand, Kim says she learned from makeup artist Charlotte Tillbury, that it’s a good idea to sleep in makeup when you’ve got a busy day ahead of you. Kardashian admits this is bad advice (yes, there are people who actually follow her advice), but says that Tillbury has lots of “magic creams” to make up for it. Maybe that’s why Kim always looks great in her bed selfies.
12. Rob Doesn’t Want To Work
We’ve almost forgotten about Rob Kardashian, who is the only male sibling in the family. It must get pretty lonely sometimes, especially since Scott Disick (Kourtney’s ex) is out of the picture and Bruce is now Caitlyn. Rob has also been accused of not wanting to work as hard as his mom and sisters to achieve success. He lived with Khloe for a while when she and Lamar Odom were still traditionally married, and often appeared unmotivated on the family’s reality shows. He also accused his family of not helping him to be successful, but never quite had a definite answer when they asked him what he needed help with. Apparently, Rob has come out with a line of luxury socks and is working to lose weight and get fit (again), but we haven’t heard much from him these days, and maybe he likes it that way.
11. Kris Jenner Profits From Downing Her Family
Kris Jenner is kind of famous by default. She manages the Kardashian brand, which includes her daughters (and sometimes their significant others), and even had a talk show for a brief stint. It’s pretty clear that Kris wants her share of the spotlight as well, and she’ll even take shots at her family to get a little more attention in the media. Not only is that lazy, but it’s not exactly the most loving quality a mother could possess. She has called her son Rob lazy and said that he was “an obese person with a failed sock line.” Jenner was also seen taking pictures with Scott Disick and posting the photos on social media, even after Scott and Kourtney broke up (way to show where your loyalties lie, Kris). Kris and Khloe have also had their share of tiffs, and Kourtney has even stated that she didn’t want to be like her mother. The girls have long said that Kim is Kris’ favorite, and she has yet to fully deny it. Lazy parenting at its finest.
10. The Kardashians Date For “Sport”
It’s not a big secret that the Kardashian girls know that if they are even perceived to be dating anyone, the story will be all over the news. That’s one of the laziest ways they stay famous. Think about it. Months will go by without the Kardashians actually “doing” anything, but you’d never know it by the abundance of photos capturing one of the Kardashians being seen in public with some guy. In addition to this, several celebrities, from Nick Cannon to Nick Lachey, once dated Kim Kardashian, and Kourtney has been rumored to be having a fling with Justin Bieber as a way to cope with her breakup from Scott Disick. You know, just to keep things interesting.
9. The Kardashian Sisters Opened A Store—But Other People Manage It
Remember years ago when Kourtney, Kim and Khloe opened up a clothing store called Dash? The Kardashians like to remind us that they had their store before they became famous, which is probably just a way to get people to stop focusing on the whole sex tape thing. At any rate, the Kardashians have apparently been lazy for quite some time, because they have other people manage the store for them. After all, the Kardashian sisters are too busy being sexy and filming reality shows to be bothered with the mundane task of being business owners. However, Dash is a great way to generate another stream of income.
8. Kourtney Became Famous By Belittling Scott
Yes, Scott Disick had his problems. However, there’s a good chance that he would have blossomed into a better person if he’d had more encouragement from his ex, Kourtney Kardashian. The two were together for over a decade and have three children together. Perhaps her act was just for the cameras, but Kourtney was often seen belittling Scott, refusing to spend time with him and insulting him. It’s a lazy way to get famous, but it obviously worked, whether you agree with her methods or not. Somehow, she managed to get pregnant three times, and doesn’t seem to be too heartbroken over the breakup. Interesting.
7. Kylie Doesn’t Want To Be Bothered With School
Apparently, Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the Kardashians, was too lazy to make school a priority. She recently turned 18, and was previously in the news for focusing too much on fashion and her much older boyfriend to get it together academically. Jenner ended up getting an extension to finish school, but according to Radar Online, she barely graduated. If that isn’t laziness, we don’t know what is. Obviously, she’s gotten the impression that the family’s money will last forever, and she doesn’t need to know all that “book stuff.” Kylie recently came out with a line of lipsticks, so maybe she got a burst of energy and decided to get to work.
6. Khloe Hasn’t Divorced Lamar Yet
Khloe Kardashian has been estranged from her former basketball player husband Lamar Odom, for a few years now. So, it’s surprising that the two have not officially divorced. There were reports that they withdrew the divorce petition, and fans thought the couple was going to try to work things out. Obviously, Lamar had a different idea, and unfortunately had a brush with death while partying at a brothel in Vegas. Khloe has been by his side through this terrible ordeal. And she and Lamar are still not officially divorced. The Kardashians have a way of defining their relationships however they want, so why wouldn’t Khloe just make the divorce final before the Vegas incident? Some say she was hoping to reconcile with Lamar, but a few times, Khloe made it clear that she just didn’t want to be bothered with the situation and wanted it to just “go away.”
5. The Kardashians Occasionally Engage In Celebrity Beef—And Then Play Innocent
If you follow the Kardashians, you might remember when Kylie Jenner, who was previously dating Jaden Smith and is now in a relationship with Tyga, made some comments indicating that she now thinks Jaden is childish. She even made some smart comments about some of Jaden’s girlfriends, then got on social media to say that she just wanted to spread peace and love. Jaden, for the most part, ignored Kylie’s banter, but it got people talking about the Kardashians once again. Then there was that time when Khloe got into it with Kanye West’s ex Amber Rose, and the classiness of both ladies was addressed during the argument. Then Khloe took to social media to say that she just wanted to remain positive. So basically, the Kardashians get catty enough for the public to pay attention, and then go back to being “innocent” to get back in the public’s good graces. All from a Smartphone. Lazy—but strategic.
4. The Kardashians Try (Almost) Anything For Fame
The Kardashians are so lazy when it comes to being famous that they’re not even willing to stick to one thing for long enough to perfect it. With the exception of Kendall (who is a successful model), the rest of the Kardashians seem to be involved in new projects every time we turn around. Khloe is coming out with a new talk show, and her mom Kris had a short-lived show as well. Kim released a single (yes, a music single) a few years ago, but most people have forgotten about that. Kourtney was serious about being a businesswoman at one point, but now it seems like she just wants to raise her kids and make minimal appearances. It seems the overall goal of the family is just to be famous—without having to work too hard.
3. Kim Kardashian Made A Book Of Selfies
Yes, most of the public likes looking at pictures of Kim Kardashian. Whether the pictures are from a professional photo shoot or a casual selfie, millions of people go crazy over her photos. There are countless numbers of women who want to get their bodies to look like Kardashian’s, and adoring fans are always keeping up with her fashion sense. However, Kim took celebrity laziness to the next level when she created a book of selfies. Yes, an entire book. Filled with pictures of her. Kim even had the audacity to call it a coffee table book. Sure, she decided to make even more money from her picture-related fame, but you’ve got to admit, this business move is both active and passive. Also, the book is called Selfish, which is totally appropriate.
2. The Kardashians Get Plastic Surgery—Then Lie About It
In Hollywood, there are few better ways to keep people talking than to have some “work” done and keep people guessing. The Kardashians are known for loving their surgical procedures, but they’re not always forthcoming about the things they’ve done to alter their bodies. We all know Kim has had some sort of butt injections, even though she rarely speaks about it. Kris has also had work done on her face, and these days, she’s been more candid about it. It’s easy to see that Khloe has had some work done on her lips and nose, and for quite some time, young Kylie didn’t want to talk about her lip injections. Kylie actually made the news because of the injections, and the fact that she denied she had them at one point. She got millions of girls to suction their lips through jars to get a bigger pout before she finally came clean. She then stated that she’d been insecure about her lips and didn’t want to talk about it. Then, Kris did an interview stating that she was mad about Kylie’s choice at first, but then learned to live with it. The family got all that publicity (and millions more dollars) all from enhancing their appearances and shirking the issue. Well played, Kardashians. Well played.
1. Kim’s Tape
Let’s be honest. Kim has a thriving fan base now and is even involved in several business ventures. But there’s a good chance she wouldn’t have this level of fame if she didn’t release that sex tape years ago with then-boyfriend Ray J. Her mother even helped to publicize the tape, hoping that it would make Kim (and the entire family) famous. Well, Kris’ plan has obviously worked. What lazier way to make people pay attention to you than to frolic around naked? It’s no secret that sex-related news always gets people talking, and that’s likely why Kim has had to keep up her sexy image throughout her “career.” This, in a nutshell, is why people say Kim Kardashian and her family are famous “for being famous.”
