Six years ago, a relatively unknown family was introduced to E!s Ryan Seacrest about a potential reality show documenting their crazy lives. Fast-forward to present day and the show has made the Kardashians pop-culture staples who boast numerous spin-offs and commercial brands.
The network has made celebrities of each family member, but especially Kim Kardashian. And Sunday night on “Ryan Seacrest With the Kardashians: An E! News Presentation,” the media powerhouse sat with the clan and looked back on their rise to fame.
With nearly everything about their lives over the past few years on tape, we still managed to learn a few new facts about the Kardashian/Jenner clan.
Third Time’s A Charm For Kim
In one of the biggest revelations of the night, mom-to-be Kim revealed she “will get married again,” adding that she has finally found what she “really wanted.” Kim, who is approximately seven months pregnant with Kanye West’s child, added that her iconic rap boyfriend is a fan of the show and loves watching it. On the downside, it seems her pregnancy experience isn’t what she expected. Kim said she has been waiting for this “amazing pregnancy” that just hasn’t happened, claiming it “hurts” and adding that she has even tried to dissuade sister Khloe from getting pregnant.
Kim’s Marriage Was “Embarrassing”
Kim went on to reveal in her sit-down with Seacrest that she “gave too much” in her televised 72-day marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries, calling her mistakes “embarrassing.” Since getting pregnant, though, the newly divorced Kim said she has become more “protective” about discussing relationships.
Rob Kardashian Loses To Gain
The most candid interview of the night came from the sole Kardashian brother, Rob, who has come under scrutiny for his recent weight gain.
He opened up about his “haters” and the role they have played in motivating his new weight-loss agenda. When sharing a diet myth about gaining one inch down there for every 10 pounds lost, Rob joked about his plan to lose 50 pounds. He also discussed his evolving relationship with momager Kris Jenner, claiming he wasn’t close to her growing up because he lived with his late father until the time of his death. Only then was he really acquainted with the family.
Kendall, Kylie Jenner Didn’t Have It Easy
The young fashionistas appeared on the hit reality show as pre-teens, literally growing up in front of the cameras. While they understood little about their family’s influence, Kendall (an aspiring model) and Kylie (an aspiring fashion designer) claimed they were teased in school for appearing on the show. Kendall fell short of calling it bullying, but Kylie admitted she “cried a lot” because it was “harder” to make friends.
No Reruns For Scott Disick
Kourtney Kardashian’s tumultuous relationship with party boy Scott Disick has been the most dramatic of the show, which has documented everything from cheating scandals to Scott’s alcoholism to his violent outburst. It is no wonder Scott dislikes watching reruns of the shows.
Not only does he personally “relive” his mistakes, but he will randomly get calls from Kourtney about another reason she’s mad at him. On the flip side, Scott admitted the show has taught him what he “shouldn’t be doing,” especially now that they are parents to two young children.
Khloe Kardashian-Odom Is A ’Slore’
Six years ago, Khloe was the most reserved about her private life on the show. She rarely dated or had boyfriends appear on camera, until she met and married Lamar Odom in the first televised wedding of the series (which Kris revealed was her “favorite episode” of all time).
Since then, Khloe and Lamar’s kinky bedroom hijinks have become a mainstay, and now Khloe proudly calls herself a “slore.” She also spoke of the awkward fan advice she receives on sex and how to conceive a baby.
While putting their lives on blast does have advantages and disadvantages, the Kardashians reveal they wouldn’t change a single thing. “We have the best home movies ever,” Kim said.
