In a new book called Kardashian Dynasty, author Ian Halperin try’s to answer the burning questions that so many of us ponder far too often. Why are we so obsessed with the Kardashians? And why are they so famous?
The book draws on all of the Kardashians’ own books, interviews and meetings with their friends / former employees to reveal some super-JUICY, shocking details about the family!
Here are a few of our fav shockers (in no particular order)
- They're descended from garbage collectors. Robert Kardashian’s grandfather started a successful garbage-collection business that apparently earned him a heap of cash!
- When Kris Jenner met Robert Kardashian, she was wearing a necklace that said, "OH SHIT."
- O.J. Simpson was a groomsman at Kris and Robert Kardashian Sr’s wedding.
- Kris and Caitlyn Jenner were both once married to people who were involved with Elvis Presley. While Kris was sussing out Robert Sr, he was trying it on with Elvis’s ex-wife Priscilla. And before Caitlyn met Kris, she was married to Linda Thompson who had previously dated Elvis! What a glamorous little love circle!
- Rob Jr. once accidentally peed on his Jenner stepsiblings during a game of hide-and-seek. Apparently this little accident earned him the nickname ‘pee boy’ (makes sense).
- The first movie Caitlyn ever appeared in was also the first movie to take home the Razzie for Worst Picture. It was called Can’t Stop the Music and its probably (/definitely) not worth watching the whole thing, so heres a quick clip of Caitlyn in some tight little shorties:
- Kim lost her virginity to Michael Jackson’s nephew. T.J Jackson is son of Tito and was her first serious boyfriend. Nothing wrong with that, it just Human Nature.
- Kim and Kourtney were once thrown off a plane for saying one of their fellow passengers had a bomb. And no there wasn't actually a bomb.
- Paris Hilton snuck Khloé into her into her first club by putting a red wig on her and telling her to claim she was a Playboy centrefold. What a great top tip! (JK don't do that kids!)
- Kim's quick relationship with Nick Lachey helped get her in the spotlight. Nick later claimed that Kim had used him to do exactly that.
- Kris Jenner keeps a pile of nondisclosure agreements in her reception for all visitors to sign on the way in. This one is probs our favourite! Apparently the pile of agreements sits under a framed sign that says, "What we say here, what we see here, let it stay here, when we leave here." SASS. OVERLOAD.
- Kim asked for a reshoot of Kris Humphries's proposal because she didn’t like the way she looked. Yeah...okay, this one is totally believable.
- In the pre-Givenchy olden days, Kim appeared at the opening of a public toilet. And yes...there are photos, and yes, they are amazing.
They never fail to entertain <3
