Love them or hate them, the Kardashians have become one of the most famous families in history… or at least Hollywood history. Yes, whether you like it or not, these rich kids of the Los Angeles elite aren’t going anywhere, anytime soon. With each Kardashian member basically a celebrity endorsement in their own right, the Kardashian brand keeps getting stronger and stronger, even amid social scandals and endless amounts of surgery. But why? Why are we so obsessed with a bunch of money grabbing attention seekers, that only serve to make us jealous of what they’ve got? Well, that’s exactly it. With the Kardashians living it up on social media, flashing their golden tickets and buckets of cash, we can only stare in disbelief at how such a group of mildly intelligent people got so lucky.
Putting Calabasas on the map, the Kardashians bask in their ever growing, money grabbing glory, letting it be known to the whole world just how incredibly wealthy they are. And what do we do? We lap it up of course! Tuning into their madness and mayhem every single day, whether it be Snapchat, Instagram, television, or any other form of social media, we somehow just can’t get enough. However, as well as funding their incredibly successful lifestyle, we also take pleasure in their downfalls, especially if it involves sheer embarrassment or severe awkwardness. So, to jump right into a nightmare of Kardashian discomfort, here are 15 photos that the Kardashians don’t want you to see.
15. When Kylie Had A Different Face
For a while Kylie Jenner was the most liked, the most intelligent, and dare we say it, the most normal of the Kardashian clan, especially in the early days of the Kardashian madness. That’s right, often seen gobsmacked at what her parents had brought her into, Kylie actually seemed an OK kinda gal. However, constantly overlooked by her parents, Kris and the now transformed Caitlyn Jenner (Bruce), Kylie was often seen grasping at straws for the tiniest bit of air time. With elder sister and now supermodel to the stars Kendall Kardashian taking up the majority of her mother and father’s eye line, poor Kylie was left to fend for herself, not without the help of her billion pound allowance of course. Deciding enough was enough after some cruel jabs with regards to her physical appearance, a teenage Kylie embarked on a journey of self discovery, and help from a plastic surgeon of course. Suddenly displaying a full set of juicy lips and a plumper rim, Kylie hilariously denied that any cosmetic surgery had taken place, at all, claiming it was all au naturale. Sure…
14. When Scott Disick Cheated
Despite being an arrogant a**hole, a nobody, and a smug privileged rich kid, Scott Disick is strangely one of the more likeable of the Kardashian klan, with his musings sometimes bordering on actual humor. Entering the fold through the arms of elder daughter Kourtney, the most normal of the bunch, the love birds first got together in 2006 and together they have three incredibly cute children. The turbulent relationship has often been highlighted in the media, with Scott usually at the helm of misbehaving. However, taking it that one step further, Disick was photographed canoodling with Hollywood nobody Chloe Bartoli, displaying an enormous amount of hands on affection. Dumping his ass two days later, Kourtney held her head high, leaving Disick to continue on his quest for drugs and alcohol. But, with reports that the two have recently gotten back together, it seems the Romeo and Juliet of Calabasas may just get their happily ever after, after all.
13. The Tape That Made Kim Famous
Ever wondered how the Kardashian clan became famous in the first place? Well this is why! Caught between the sheets with her then boyfriend, the aptly named Ray J., the infamous tape propelled the then unknown Kim Kardashian into Hollywood stardom. That’s right, previously known as Paris Hilton‘s deadbeat pal, Kim was basically a nobody, with the paps preferring to focus on the Nicole Richies and Mischa Bartons of the time. However, all that changed when Kim was filmed in a number of compromising positions, detailing a night of passion in severe detail. Mortified by the events, Kim sued, walking away with a cool 5 bucks. Yet, with the deal going down only a few days before the now famed Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s premier, people began to suspect that the tape wasn’t leaked after all. Coincidence? I think not…
12. When Kim Had A Different Face
Speaking of a young Kim, now famed for being the most attractive of the bunch, Kimmy K. wasn’t always so stunningly beautiful. Pictured donning a pair of nerdy glasses and unkempt skin, the reality queen starlet often tries to remove old photographs of her past self, referring to them as the ‘old her’. Declaring, “I’m totally not against plastic surgery,” in 2010, Kim claimed she had only ever used Botox, preferring to not divulge the extent of her actual plastic surgery use. However, these days it seems Kim has pushed past her rule of only Botox, stepping into the dark side of cosmetic godliness. Obviously having work done on her nose, Kim often vehemently disputes the accusations, instead claiming it all comes down to her wonderful makeup skills. That’s right, backing up her claims, Kardashian stated, “people think I’ve had my nose done. I haven’t, It does look smaller. Maybe it’s the contour I use,”. Hmmmm.
11. When Kris Kardashian’s Lips Got Fat
Ah Kris Kardashian, what would the world be without you. Famed matriarch and self proclaimed ‘momager’, Kris Kardashian has been at the helm of the famous reality family since the very beginning. That’s right, pitching the idea to a bewildered Ryan Seacrest in early 2007, Kris indeed had a vision. Selling it as an ‘Osbournes’ type reality show, Kris believed her children had that special something, claiming, “there’s the little girls, and there’s the older girls, and then there’s my son. Everybody thinks that they could create a bunch of drama in their lives, but it’s something that I felt I didn’t even have to think about. It would be natural”. Yet, with ‘natural’ being the operative word, Kris was anything but, going on to have numerous amounts of surgery, depicted in the show itself. With one in particular leading to some very serious swelling in both lips, Kris claimed it was the work of an insect bite. A likely story.
10. When Kim’s Pants Did This
Falling victim to every woman’s worst fashion faux pas, poor Kim Kardashian was recently spotted out and about sporting an unfortunate case of the camel toe. That’s right, papped walking to and from the gym in some serious tight lycra, Kimmy seemed totally oblivious to what was lurking below, instead choosing to continually talk on the phone to a mystery caller. Named camel toe due to its likeness of a certain animals foot, this wasn’t the first time the reality queen had been snapped displaying a serious amount of clinging fabric, with her penchant for tight clothing well known. However, recently accused of photoshopping the mishaps themselves, with fans accusing her of airbrushing the ‘offending’ photographs, Kim’s camel toe had suddenly disappeared into thin air. Claiming that the star had airbrushed the pictures and altered them, Kim remained tight lipped on the matter, choosing to ignore the embarrassing accusations. Don’t worry Kim! It happens to the best of us.
9. When Kylie Fell Over
Known for being the most relatively normal of the bunch, and that’s saying something, Kylie Jenner is usually pictured looking extremely prim and proper with regards to how she holds herself. However, we can’t all be perfect, with Kylie perfectly demonstrating this after falling over in full view of the waiting paparazzi. That’s right, wearing killer high heels and a dress to match, Kylie suffered the embarrassing mishap while celebrating sister Kim’s hen party in Paris. Partying up a storm, the green-haired beauty was snapped falling flat on her face after leaving the legendary dinner party, with a number of her sisters. Photographed to the extreme, poor Kylie grabbed on to elder sister Khloe for support, who watched in horror as her younger sister solely destroyed the Kardashian family name by crawling all over the floor. Don’t worry Kylie, we’ve all been there before, just not in front of a thousand waiting photographers.
8. When Kim’s Assets Were Squeezed Into See-Through Leggings
Renowned for her perfect sense of style and refined image, Kim Kardashian rarely ever has a hair out of place with regards to how she is usually seen. However, we all have our off days, especially when you go around wearing see-through leggings and ill-fitting fabric. That’s right, snapped in some unflattering gym wear, Kim was recently seen giving photographers a lot more than they had originally bargained for, with the whole of her backside in full view of waiting paparazzi. Teamed with a drab hoody and black vest top, Kim was miles behind her usual sophisticated sexy self, instead opting for a see-through guide to her nether regions. Famed for her iconic posterior, Kim has often been at the brunt of rumors, with accusations that the star has had a number of butt implants. However, vehemently denying the claims, Kim continues to display her most famous asset whatever the occasion.
7. When Khloe Had A Sweatshop
It’s not everyday you are forced to deny you own an illegal sweatshop, yet for Khloe Kardashian she was forced to do just that. That’s right, after unveiling her newest venture the Good American Denim Line, with momager Kris, the youngest sibling gave fans an inside tour of the factory in which the denim was being produced. Giving a behind the scenes look, the reality star/businesswoman went on to describe how the jeans were made, tailored and produced. However, not quite giving off the vibe she wanted, Khloe was quickly accused of running a sweatshop, with some concerned fans venting their frustrations at how the factory was seen in the video. Firing back, Khloe quickly tweeted, “watch your mouth. All make salaries and all are employed in la! Know your info before you chime in, It means a lot to me to fight to make my denim in the US and to be employing good wages to all of my hardworking employees!” We think the lady doth protest too much.
6. When Kim Ugly Cried
As well as flaunting her wealth and her perfect family, Kimmy K. also enjoys playing to the water works, often snapped in mid-flow. In fact, Kim is so famed for letting the tears stream down her face, that sister Kourtney has even expressed her concern for her crying sibling, stating, “I start laughing at Kim when she’s crying because I just can’t help it”, ahhh because that’s what sisters are for huh?! That’s right, infamously caught crying over a lost diamond earring, Kim went into full blown hysterics when her $75K diamond jewel fell tumbling into the ocean while on holiday in Bora Bora. Displaying one of the biggest freak outs known to man, poor Kimmy’s meltdown cemented itself into Kardashian history, presented with an added ugly crying face to match. Don’t worry Kim, it could happen to any of us… I mean who doesn’t vacation in Bora Bora on a regular basis along with our priceless jewels and mounds of gold.. oh wait?
5. When Khloe Flashed Her Knickers
Treating the paparazzi to a full on view of her underwear while out on a stroll in West Hollywood, poor Khloe Kardashian had no idea what had hit her when revealing to the world just what existed below the Kardashian’s dress. That’s right, giving the cameras an eyeful during a surprise gust of wind, Khloe desperately tried to cling on to her flailing dress, yet sadly failed to do so. However, proving that she’s just the same as every other man and woman out there, the reality queen was shown to be wearing the ever so glamorous SPANX, instead of the diamond encrusted lace panties we thought all Kardashians wore on a daily basis. Designed for men and women, SPANX specializes in under garments that are intended for the wearer to look thinner than they actually are. However, although it may seem embarrassing, Khloe not only proved that even the Hollywood elite are susceptible to off days, but that large gusts of wind are also of huge annoyance, even to the A-listers.
4. When Kim Got Ambushed
Known Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk is no stranger to the celeb circuit, often seen irritating Hollywood to its most extreme. From attempting to kiss Will Smith at the premiere of Men in Black 3, to grabbing Bradley Cooper around the legs, Sediuk has been arrested a number of times. However, seemingly obsessed with the queen of reality TV herself, Kim Kardashian, Sediuk has struck up somewhat of a stalker type attitude towards the super star. Beginning in 2014, Sediuk somehow managed to push Kim over so hard that if it wasn’t for her bodyguard’s assistance, the famous sister would have most definitely hit the ground at full force. Referring to the incident, Sediuk claimed, “I hope Kim is OK and won’t be mad at me as I didn’t mean any harm. Kanye is one lucky man as Kim is a goddess!” However, two years later Sediuk struck again, attempting to kiss her as she tried to enter a restaurant in France. Again, thanks to the quick thinking of her security, Sediuk was stopped, until next time that is…
3. When Kim Got Flour Bombed
Love her or hate her, Kimberly Kardashian West certainly knows how to stir a crowd, especially with regards to how she presents herself. Not just a pretty face, Kim is also a self proclaimed businesswoman, with a number of successful business ventures under her belt. That’s right, launching clothing boutique, D-A-S-H, with sisters Kourtney and Khloe in 2006, the store now boasts three locations and a tidy profit. However, with her fashion choices not to everyone’s liking, the fashion entrepreneur was recently flour bombed while attending her own perfume launch in West Hollywood. With claims that the attack was at the hands of PETA, organizers immediately detained the offending assailant, with Kim brushing off the event, stating, “that probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me. Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that’s a whole lot of translucent powder right there”.
2. When They Were Best Friends With An Alleged Killer
Before Olympic Gold medalist Bruce Jenner came along, matriarch Kris Kardashian was married to infamous lawyer Robert, known for being that guy who got OJ Simpson out of serious trouble. That’s right, friends with the famous footballer for a number of years, Kris was also extremely close with OJ’s late wife Nicole. In fact, the two couples were so close, that OJ even acted as an usher at Robert and Kris’ wedding. However, after helping to find OJ not guilty, the relationship between the pair became strained, with Robert often doubting his own reasoning and his best friend’s word, claiming, “I have doubts. The blood evidence is the biggest thorn in my side; that causes me the greatest problems. So I struggle with the blood evidence”. Succumbing to cancer in 2003, OJ spoke of his friend’s death stating, “It’s shocking when a friend close to you passes. I loved Bobby, we had one disagreement over the years, about a book he did for money. He explained it to me, I understood it, and we put it aside. Bob was there when I needed him most.”
1. When They All Rocked The Double Denim
Everyone has rocked the double denim at least once in their life right? Yep, long before the Kardashians were, well The Kardashians, and way before Kendall and Kylie were even a twinkle in their mother’s eye, the Jenner-Kardashian family had merged into a denim wearing smiley twenty first century modern family, complete with matching outfits and fake happiness. Virtually unrecognizable, the famous Kardashian klan was a world apart from how we usually see them today, with the family even unable to afford shoes?! Nowadays it’s all Gucci dresses, Dior sunglasses and muscle cars for the Calabasas crew, instead preferring to take numerous selfies rather than a happy family photograph. Plus, with Bruce Jenner’s kids also in shot, it sure seems a long time since the Jenners and Kardashians have been pictured in the same room together, let alone smiling.
