Remember back when Keeping Up With the Kardashians first started and they were a pretty relatable family? Like, they obviously had more money than a lot of people, but they were overall pretty normal? Well, if the spin-off Life of Kylie didn’t convince you that those days are long gone, than last night’s Kardashian Christmas Special sure as hell should have.
In the episode we watch Kim and Kris have some weirdo Christmas war that ends with Kris getting a fucking ice rink built in her backyard and inviting Nancy Kerrigan over to skate with her grandkids while she hands out Burberry scarves. I shit you not.
First of all, the fact that every year Kris Jenner and her daughters go out and buy ALL NEW Christmas decorations is fucking ridiculous. Normal people haul the same boxes of the same shit out of storage every fucking year and maybe add new shit here and there. These assholes were talking about what “vibe” they were going for this year, meanwhile my grandma has had the same Christmas “vibe” since 1984. She calls it “Christmas at Nan’s House: There’s Tinsel!” It’s timeless.
Second, this was NOT a good episode for Kim. She sounded like a total Christmas bitch. First, she went insane about her family members copying her Christmas “vibe” last year because Kourtney also hung some stringy lights off her house in the same fashion. Similar Christmas lights on a mansion? What a Christmas travesty! Then she complained that Kris copied her wrapping paper last year, meanwhile I’m here buying my wrapping paper at Walmart so I know half the other mom’s out there are going to have the same Lightning McQueen Christmas wrapping. And do I care? I do not.
So, to out do Kim, Kris, as I mentioned, decided to set up this ice skating rink in her backyard and have a fucking Olympic skater come over to skate with the kids while it fake snowed and Grandma Kris has $100 Burberry fucking scarves for everyone! I am like 99% sure that Donald Trump will have a far less foolishly over the top Christmas than this, and that guy has a fucking gold toilet.
Over the past few years, while I’ve been watching the Kardashians I’ve often thought “Ok, they’ve gotten too rich and famous now and they’ve totally changed and it’s gotten a bit foolish.” But during last night’s Christmas special I legitimately thought “Ok, they’ve gotten a bit too rich and full of themselves and it’s actually kind of made them shitty people.” I mean, everything about the Christmas episode was the OPPOSITE of what Christmas should be about. The entire thing was materialistic, over the top, competitive, and selfish. It was like watching Scrooged, but no one learns a lesson.
They also didn’t announce Kylie’s pregnancy, so fuck that.
