In our generation’s realms of famous, there are the Kardashians and below them, there is everyone else. It is safe to say that The Kardashian family is currently the most talked about family in the world. They are famous for pretty much being famous and have taken their Armenian last name to heights they never thought possible.
Let's face it, regardless of if you want to or not, pretty much everyone knows things about this family, mainly because it is shoved down our throats on a daily basis. From who they are dating to what they are wearing, this family can be seen as major trend setters.
This family not only a family of reality stars but they are also all quite intelligent business women. They have used their platform for their benefit and each of them individually has been laughing their way to the bank.
A lot of people would probably trade lives with any member of the Kardashian family in an instant but some people; some intelligent people see that sometimes fame is not always what it seems to be.
From reasons why you would want to be a Kardashian to reasons you would not, I have covered all grounds.
20 Best Glam Squad around
For all of you ladies out there who envy how perfect the Kardashian clan looks on a daily basis, this is for you.
Yes, they are very pretty girls, but the reason why they ALWAYS look so good is because they have a glam squad that dolls them up every time they leave the house. Seriously, they have an entire team of people who fix their hair and make sure their makeup is ready for every outfit, including jeans and a t-shirt.
They can go from colorful wigs to a natural look within hours and that is something to be slightly envious about.
For most of us rolling out of bed, we probably all look terrible. Wild messy hair and bags under our eyes. We tend to go out into the world barely together after that, but not the Kardashians. Such things are unacceptable.
19 They never know who is using them
Everyone thinks that this family has nothing to complain about because they have everything they would ever need material wise. But it is true what they say: money does not buy you happiness. And sometimes, what happens is that people might use you for your money. This is probably one of the hardest things they have to go through. When you are that famous with that much wealth, there is a big chance that some of the people around you are using you.
From wanting to get famous, to just wanting to be famous by association, there are a million reasons as to why someone would hang out with a Kardashian just for their fame.
Being used is one of the worst feelings in the world and I feel bad for those who need to go through it.
The more you have to give, the more people will try to take, remember that.
18 Ability to go on incredible trips by private jet
Flying can be such a pain for us regular folk. First, you need to be there way in advance, then there is a charge and weight limit on your luggage. Then you need to go through security, wait to board and finally you sit down, in your middle seat with zero legroom and wonder how the rich live.
Well, the rich and famous, including the Kardashian family does not need to deal with any of that because they have the luxury of flying on private jets.
For those of us who are lucky enough to one day fly private let me tell you, it is a completely different experience. From the wait time to the travel comfort, it is like night and day.
Flying private is one of the things that money (and lots of it) can get you, so it does not come as a surprise that the Kardashian family can afford it.
17 Hard to maintain relationships
Whether its friendships or romantic relationships, it is hard to maintain either when you are that famous.
I feel like the Kardashians, like many other people in Hollywood, have a difficult time maintaining stable relationships because they do not live stable lives. They are constantly filming something, on the runway or on a private resort somewhere that it is hard to keep track of them.
The reality is that many relationships that are in the public eye end up in separation because of the pressure and the lifestyle and the Kardashian family have experienced quite a bit of that.
From short-lived marriages to public divorces, this family has seen it all and I do not envy them for it. People may think they have a perfect life but dealing with the things they do with the entire world watching can’t be easy.
16 They have a platform to speak about things that mean something to them
On a more serious note, the Kardashians have enough of a following to preach about what is important to them.
From body image to their Armenian roots, the Kardashians have the ability to make anything cool.
Do I think they take advantage of this platform? No. However, I do think that they do it in their own personal way. A lot of the times, they will discuss their projects on their show, like when they spoke to a woman’s shelter.
The thing about being famous is that everything you do becomes monitored and everything you say is dissected and judged. On the other end of the spectrum, you have the ability to, in a way, change the world if you want to.
Out of everything the Kardashians have, this is the thing I am personally most envious of.
15 lots of people blast them
Although they have adoring fans around the world, the Kardashian family also gets a lot of hate.
Sometimes people like having haters, especially when they're famous. It gets you in the spotlight. But we're sure that sometimes, it actually does hurt. People love talking smack about this family, and those that do claim they deserve it because they chose to be in the limelight. The fact of the matter is though, no one deserves to feel hate. Hate is an ugly emotion and those who throw it are usually the people who are the unhappy ones.
Being a Kardashian forces you to have tough skin, however, the hate is something I do not envy about them. Hopefully, they listen to the positives that are said about them instead of focusing on the countless haters around the world.
14 Have the means to work on projects
There are so many things in life I would like to dabble in, however, I do not have the means to do so. However, if you are a Kardashian, you have the ability to work on whatever you feel passionate about.
A passion project, to many, can be viewed as a dream or an aspiration that one might fancy. Sometimes things fall through, but sometimes people achieve their dreams. The Kardashians, however, don't have to worry about things not working out for them. From clothing lines to cell phone apps and makeup empires, everything these girls touch turns to gold and it is pretty amazing that they could do this.
The Kardashian family is in an amazing position, because financially they are set for life. The reality is they can just do what they love and continue making money off their own personal brand.
13 Rumors are constantly being made about them
For anyone who went to any school ever, they know just how much damage rumours can do. People suck, rumors suck and people who start rumors are the worst.
I think it is safe to say that no matter who you are, having fake news spread about you is never fun, so imagine how the Kardashian family feels.
With little to no privacy, the world in its entirety believes that they know you, and that likely takes a huge toll on their emotional well being.
This is one thing I do not envy about the Kardashians. Privacy and respect is something that money and fame can’t buy and when people start rumours, it is a sign of disrespect. To feel disrespected by people who do not know you must have its difficult moments.
12 Adoring fans
Whether you love them or hate them, the Kardashian family has some of the most die-hard fans you will ever find, which is pretty cool.
It must be pretty cool to know that you are adored around the globe by people who you have never met. The Kardashians have inspired many people and have brought light into a lot of their fans lives.
What I think is special about them is that they are a family, and actually act like a family. They are all different, which means every fan connects with one sister more than the rest. I personally, identify with Khloe while a lot of girls would say, Kylie or Kim.
I would love to say that I would not want to have people adore me but I would be lying, having all those fans must be a trip!
When you live a life that is so public and you lead a lifestyle that is lavish, there are going to be people taking note and some of those people do not have the best intentions.
Kim Kardashian experienced an incredible trauma in Paris when she was robbed and this is the kind of violence and fear that The Kardashian family are subjected to daily.
Not only did this traumatic incident happen, but this family has had quite a few stalkers. It may sound funny and innocent, but if you are the one being seriously stalked it is actually terrifying. Imagine the only privacy you get is no longer an option because there is a crazy stalker watching your every move. You don’t know if he is violent or if he is mentally stable all you know is that he is watching your every move. There is nothing fun about that.
10 They get paid to party
Although partying is not the most important thing in life, it is pretty cool when people pay you to do to so.
The Kardashian family can fill up a nightclub just because they are there and the nightlife industry takes advantage of that for their parties.
The Kardashian girls and Rob have all been paid to host parties at nightclubs, and to tell you the truth they get paid a lot.
Not only are they paid a ridiculous amount of money to be there, but they get whatever they want for free, which is ironic because they are so rich. You'd think they would be able to afford the bill, but they don't even have to bother with it at all.
Now ladies and gents, that is how the rich get richer and the poor get….well you know the rest!
9 Criticized for everything
Think about the person that has criticized you the most in your life. Now multiply that by hundreds of thousands of people. Well, that is what it is like being a Kardashian.
From criticizing their parenting, to commenting on their looks or family choices, the shade that is thrown their way is very intense.
The problem with living a life so public and being watched by so many is the number of opinions and criticism you receive. I do not envy the Kardashians or anyone else who needs to live a life of critique in the public eye.
Regardless of if you agree with the Kardashian lifestyle or not, at the end of the day, what they decide to do isn't really anyone's business. They do what is good for them, just like everyone else in the world.
8 Beautiful homes
Not only does this family have everything they need and more, but each of them have absolutely stunning homes to brag about.
Homes are not only expensive to buy and maintain but they are also expensive to decorate, although money does not really seem like an issue in this family.
Furniture is expensive, and to be able to fill up a big house you need a pretty penny, which we all know the Kardashians have.
It must be nice to be able to pick out whatever house you want and decorate it with whatever you desire with no regard to cost. I don’t know about you guys but that’s something that I would enjoy if I was part of this super lavish gang.
7 They have no privacy
The reason why, if given the choice I would rather be rich than famous is because of the lack of privacy fame brings you.
Imagine every time you walked out of the house, people took your picture. Imagine not being able to go to the grocery store, or not being able to take your kids to the park. Well, this is the reality that the Kardashian family must face every day.
For those of you thinking that it would not be so hard, try to put yourself in their position. Take poor Khloe for example; the entire world is currently judging her after videos of her baby daddy at a club were released. Instead of dealing with this in private between her and him, the entire world is involved.
It is a lot to handle for anyone, even a Kardashian.
6 Great genes
Although money can buy a lot of things, they can’t buy your genes…well maybe they can just a little.
Yes, fame may have employed some very special people to help them with their looks, but really, a lot of it comes down to who their parents are.
Regardless of what you may think, there are good genes in this family. The Kardashian girls have that Armenian flavor and the Jenner sisters got Caitlyn's athletic frames. Some sisters might have been insecure and went out of their way to look the way they do, but they're still beautiful. They were beautiful before they were famous and they have just got better looking with every dollar that enters their bank accounts.
The Kardashian girls are gorgeous well-dressed bombshells and we all kind of wish we could have their looks.
5 Kids will never know what a normal life is
Okay so the Kardashian family has great genes and their children are beyond beautiful.
We are watching their children grow up in the public eye, and while they are adorable, there is a kind of sadness to it. They do not know, nor will they ever know what it is like to be a normal child. Although there is no true definition of normal, being followed around by cameras all day is definitely considered far from the norm.
Fame has a weird way of messing people up, and growing up in the limelight can sometimes have negative effects. I sincerely hope none of these children face these problems throughout their life. At the end of the day, they did not choose to be famous, they were born into it.
4 Drive the most luxurious cars
Cars are such a status symbol and have been for a long time.
Regardless of who you are, when a fancy car drives by, you notice it. You may not care about it or know anything about cars but you will notice that it is fancy. Fancy cars mean power and money, and so many of us don't have either of those things.
This family has some of the most intense and sick cars you could have. Bentley, Range Rover, Mercedes Benz and Ferrari are simply a few of their favorites.
This family has it all when it comes to material objects and that includes the coolest cars on the market. Some of the siblings love new cars, while others favor vintage ones. Regardless of the year, each of these cars is so sick and so cool, even to someone like me who knows nothing about cars.
3 The entire world talks about your family
If you are anything like me, anyone speaking poorly of someone you love is not taken lightly.
When your entire family is in the public eye, with criticism surrounding their every move it is hard to not be upset by it.
It seems like every day there is something new being said about a member of their family and it must be a hard pill to swallow. From scandals to tapes being released, the Kardashians have had to stay strong throughout all the rumours and terrible headlines.
One thing that I admire about the family is how much they stick together regardless of what is being said about them. Although I do not envy the hate they get, nor condone the world speaking ill towards them, it is nice to see that they stay a family regardless of anything that is said.
2 Dressed by the best designers
While most of us ladies need to watch how much we spend at stores, even stores like Forever 21, the Kardashian ladies get first pick at clothes from all the most fabulous and luxurious designers on the planet.
From Chanel to Louis Vuitton, these ladies have the best of the best when it comes to fashion. Their closets alone are worth a lot more than most of our houses are worth, and that is not a lie
Not only are their clothes fabulous but their shoes, purses and of course jewelry is beyond the definition of luxury and I know I am not the only person on the planet who feels a slight hint of envy when they snapchat their closets.
I guess it is simply one of the perks of being a Kardashian!
1 They lost their dad at a young age
For anyone who has ever said that they wish they can trade lives with the Kardashian girls, think about this: they lost their father.
No matter who you are or how rich and famous you become, losing a parent is one of the most difficult things you can ever go through. Not only did they lose a parent, but they also lost someone who was very present in their life, someone who should have been around to see them become mothers.
We do not know if the Kardashians would be the same had their father been around for longer, however, I am sure that they think about him every day.
Any time their father is brought up, his kids speak about him with so much love and respect. It makes me realize how fortunate some of us could be without knowing what we have would mean to someone else.
