What we can learn from the world's most overexposed family.
The ubiquitous Kardashian klan have been on our screens since what feels like the beginning of time.
Whether you're an avid fan of their multiple reality TV shows or you put up with them because it seems impossible to change the channel without seeing one of their faces, you can't deny they've taught us a few things along the way...
Life lesson #1: Do not underestimate the number of reality TV shows one family can spawn.
It started off with Keeping Up with the Kardashians
, and then all of a sudden we had Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney & Khloe Take New York, Khloe & Lamar
... Heck, even the Kardashian kidlettes, Kylie and Kendall are said to be getting their own reality TV show. If Bruce Jenner's ridiculously Botoxed face gets its own show, we won't really be surprised.
Life lesson #2: Talent is optional.
The Kardashians haven't really left humankind a legacy apart from being attractive, a willingness to do anything in front of a kamera and, um, questionable taste in men.
However, we do have to give props to Kim for teaching us all how to "ugly kry" and achieve the seemingly impossible by having an engagement period that lasted longer than the actual marriage. But really, who needs a valid klaim to fame when you are a Kardashian?
Life lesson #3: Sometimes mums really do know best.
Mum knows best? Not when your mum is Kris Jenner, she doesn't! As the "momager" to the Kardashian kids, Kris has encouraged Kim to strip for Playboy and told Khloe she was fat. Earlier this year she even tweeted a topless photo of herself from 1987 when she was heavily pregnant with son Rob to "celebrate" his 25th birthday. They should seriously make a TV show about this stuff. Oh, wait...
Life lesson #4: There are plenty of douches in the sea.
We can thank Kim for showing us that there is absolutely no danger of the world's a-hole supply ever running out. Let's recap: one boyfriend cheated on her on her birthday, she's locked in a messy divorce battle with her estranged husband and now she has shacked up with the patron saint of all douches, Kanye West. How does she do it, really?
Life lesson #5: K is a really versatile letter.
How many Cs were killed in the making of this family? It seems the Kardashians have a rather large aversion to the third letter of the alphabet and are single-handedly trying to run it out of town. Don't get us started on how many levels of wrong Kardashian Konfidential
