And made some shocking confessions about the realities of parenthood.
Scroll on to find out more…
The Kardashians are a family with a lot going on, to say the least…
It’s pretty hard to keep track of it all!
Most of us have heard of Kim Kardashian…
The forty-one-year-old has broken the internet with her escapades many times.
But you can’t talk about Kim without discussing the rest of the gang.
She comes from one of the most famous families in America, so let’s take a closer look…
Starting off with one of the most important figures in the family, Kris Jenner is infamous for her role as ‘momager’.
She was the catalyst for the family’s reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which launched them all to a new level of fame.

Her first husband was none other than Robert Kardashian, O.J. Simpson’s lawyer in that notorious trial.
Robert married Kris in 1978, but the pair were divorced by 1991.
The sixty-six-year-old had 4 kids with Robert.
Sadly, Robert passed away back in 2003.
Kris and Robert’s eldest child together is none other than Kourtney Kardashian.
The forty-three-year-old is the founder of lifestyle brand Poosh.
Aside from her solo business ventures, she isn’t afraid to partner with her sisters.
She is known to have collaborated with Kylie Cosmetics as well as Kim’s range KKW Beauty.
Kourtney also recently married Travis Barker, drummer in the legendary rock band Blink-182.
The pair married in May of this year, holding 3 different ceremonies in Las Vegas, Santa Barbara and Portofino in Italy.
However, before this, Kourtney had a long on-again-off-again relationship with Scott Disick, ranging from 2006 to 2015.
The pair have 3 children together named Mason, Penelope and Reign.
Fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians will know Scott well…
This is because he became quite the fixture in the show, and even went on to feature in various spinoffs.
The second oldest of the Kardashian gang is, of course, Kim herself.
It’s fair to say that Kim was the first real breakout star from the family.
Although some might put this catapult to stardom down to her relationship with Ray J…
Their involvement with each other has been forever immortalized in that video…
But that’s enough about that — since then, Kim has proven herself to be a real force.
Aside from her success on social media, the forty-one-year-old has proven herself to be a great businesswoman.
She launched her very own shapewear brand in 2019 called Skims.
Talking to Nordstrom, Kim spoke of where the inspiration for the brand came from: “Any great outfit starts with what’s underneath. If I don’t feel comfortable in my underwear or if it doesn’t fit properly, I am not going to feel good in it, no matter how I look from the outside.”
The brand focuses on body positivity and inclusivity, with a range of shades and sizes available.
Since its launch 3 years ago, the brand has seen huge success, with a valuation of $3.2 billion back in January 2022, as per Forbes.
She also has had success in the beauty industry.
She launched KKW Beauty in 2017, before relaunching the brand as a skincare line called SKKN by Kim earlier this year.
According to Glamour Magazine, people think the rebrand was because of her divorce from Kanye West.
The pair were arguably one of the most high-profile celebrity couples around.
The pair first met in the early 2000s, but they didn’t become an item until 2012.
They married in 2014, but called it quits last year, with Kim filing for divorce in the same month as the KKW rebrand announcement in February 2021.
Kim and Kanye have 4 children together.
They are called North, Chicago, Psalm and Saint.
Then, born in 1980, is the youngest of the Kardashian sisters, Khloé.
The thirty-eight-year-old is known for being one of the most athletic of the sisters.
However, don’t let this trick you into thinking she’s not business savvy too.
Because that is certainly not the case!
Aside from the regular spinoffs, Khloé has produced her own shows too, including Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian.
The star has also launched her own clothing line called Good American, which is reported to have made $1 million in sales on its very first day!
Khloé was married to NBA player Lamar Odom from 2009 until she filed for divorce in 2013.
The pair tied the knot exactly one month after they met!
The Kardashian then met another basketball player, Tristan Thompson.
They have 1 daughter named True, and a son who was born via surrogacy in July.
However, the pair have a very rocky history, having initially split in 2019 after cheating allegations.
Although the pair rekindled and quarantined together during the pandemic, they split again in 2021.
Then there is the only brother to come out of the Kardashian clan, Rob Jr.
He is known as being one of the most camera-shy members of the family, but he did compete in the thirteenth season of Dancing with the Stars, and came an impressive second.
Rob has found himself in some hot water over the years, particularly in relation to the mother of his daughter, rapper Blac Chyna.
Back in 2017, the thirty-five-year-old was banned from Instagram after sharing explicit photos of his ex after accusing her of infidelity.
As well as the trio of Kardashian sisters, the family extends into the Jenners with the notable addition of Kendall and Kylie.
Kris married Bruce Jenner, who transitioned in 2015, taking the name Caitlyn.
Caitlyn was married to Kris for over twenty years, from 1991 to 2015.
Kris filed for divorce in 2014, citing irreconcilable differences.
However, the pair have 2 children together who are undeniably a key part of the Kardashian collective.
Their kids may be the youngest, but this by no means indicates they are the weakest!
Kendall Jenner is known for modelling career, which has seen her walk runways all over the world.
The twenty-six-year-old has been on multiple magazine covers, including Allure, LOVE, Harper’s Bazaar and even a range of international Vogue editions.
She is undoubtedly one of the most successful models of her generation.
In 2018, she topped Forbes‘ list of the highest-paid models in the world.
Her huge social media following earns her a buck or 2 too!
It is rumored that Kendall charges up to $700,000 for a sponsored post.
The star has dated multiple NBA players, including Blake Griffin.
She also dated Ben Simmons from 2018 to 2020.
Since then, Kendall has been dating basketball Devin Brooker.
However, the pair are reported to have split earlier this year.
The other Jenner sister is none other than Kylie, founder of the iconic beauty brand Kylie Cosmetics.
Although she is the youngest of the sisters, she is the one who has proven herself to have the most entrepreneurial spirit.
Her Kylie Lip Kits are extraordinarily popular.
She first began to sell them in 2014, before Kylie Cosmetics ballooned in size and began to produce a wider range of products.
However, the twenty-five-year-old has faced her fair share of controversy.
Particularly back in 2020 with Forbes’ declaration that she was the world’s youngest self-made billionaire.
The magazine then accused her of foraging tax documents which called her billionaire status into question.
They claimed that her business was worth substantially less than had been made out.
One of the star’s most significant relationships was with rapper Tyga.
Kylie featured in a couple of the musician’s music videos during the time they were together from 2015 to 2017.
She then began dating another rapper, Travis Scott.
The pair first met in 2017.
The couple have 2 children together.
Stormi was born in 2018, and then they also welcomed a little boy in February this year.
The family is never too far from controversy…
And recently, Kim received the wrath of online critics after she spoke out about the current Balenciaga controversy.
The brand hit headlines after they posted images of children posing with BDSM-inspired teddy bear purses.
“We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused. Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms,” the company wrote in a statement posted to its Instagram Story.
“We apologize for displaying unsettling documents in our campaign.
“We take this matter very seriously and are taking legal action against the parties responsible for creating the set and including unapproved items for our Spring 23 campaign photoshoot. We strongly condemn abuse of children in any form. We stand for children’s safety and well-being.”
However, following their statement, many have been waiting for Kim Kardashian to speak up on the issue.
She’s a frequent collaborator with the brand and has worn their clothing at the Met Gala.
“I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been shocked and outraged by the recent Balenciaga campaigns,” she wrote on Twitter.
“But because I wanted an opportunity to speak to their team to understand for myself how this could have happened.”
“As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images.
“The safety of children must be held with the highest regard and any attempts to normalize child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society — period,” she continued.
“I appreciate Balenciaga’s removal of the campaigns and apology.
“In speaking with them, I believe they understand the seriousness of the issue and will take the necessary measures for this to never happen again,” the reality star added.
“As for my future with Balenciaga, I am currently re-evaluating my relationship with the brand, basing it off their willingness to accept accountability for something that should have never happened to begin with — and the actions I am expecting to see them take to protect children,” Kim concluded.
Fans have also slammed Kim’s home after she posted a series of pictures of the “things at home that makes me happy,” on her Instagram.
Kim took to Instagram to share several snaps of her home and in one photo, she showed off her bedroom which featured white and gray marble walls.
However, in a second, a huge piece of artwork with a blue dot in the middle on a gray stone wall was photographed
One specific photo even showed what appeared to be her living room which was decorated with matching chairs and a couch, a throw blanket and a rug.
Everything in the room, including the walls, was the same color.
As per reports, parts of her home are undergoing construction, which included 2 stone ottomans and a blueprint for an all-brown room.
But fans weren’t too impressed by the interiors and many took to the comment section to slam her design skills, and compared her home to a “prison.”
“I felt cold looking at this,” one popular comment read.
“That is such a depressing-looking house,” another person wrote.
While a third chimed in: “It’s giving solitary confinement.”
“Looks like you live in hell Kim,” another user added, while someone else compared it to a “psych ward.”
“I would feel like I’m sleeping in a morgue in that bedroom,” one fan added.
And surprisingly, it’s not the first time Kim’s house has been criticized as her daughter North previously expressed her frustration at the house decor.
Kim also recently hit headlines again for a controversial business venture.
She’s landed her first major acting role!
The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reported that Kim has been cast in the new series of American Horror Story.
“Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family,” co-creator Ryan Murphy said.
“Emma and I are excited about collaborating with this true force in the culture. Halley Feiffer has written a fun, stylish, and ultimately terrifying role, especially for Kim, and this season is ambitious and unlike anything we have ever done.”
The series will be called Delicate and is partially based on Danielle Valentine’s upcoming novel Delicate Condition.
Bookshop.org describes the book as “a gripping thriller that follows a woman convinced a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens―while the men in her life refuse to believe a word she says.”
However, recently, Kim has been hit with controversy.
Her former Kimoji business partner has gone viral for critiquing the star …
David Liebensohn claims that Kim Kardashian ruined his life!
“If I get hit by a bus tomorrow,” he told the Daily Mail. “I want everyone to know the truth about the Kardashians.”
“He lost his home, his $2 million business, and his family,” the outlet reports, “he now lives in his 2011 Toyota Prius to save on rent and showers in the gym.”
Liebensohn explained: “I thought people might want to know about this story, what have I got to lose right now by telling it?”
“I’m literally sleeping in my car. I might as well put all this in a story that people can maybe make some sense out of, and see what happens.”
“I lost my wife, my kids blamed me, they had a rough time at school, they were teenagers at the time and idolized that family – Kim and her sisters – then this happened, and it destroyed us.”
“I blame them for all of it. Because before I met them, I was on a positive trajectory.
“After that, everything that I’d worked for started going downhill to the point where I’m now sleeping in my car. They’re 1,000% to blame.”

Recently, Kim was in the headlines for something else entirely…
The Mother’s Day message she received from her kids that roasted their mom.
Kim took to Instagram to share a video card that sister Khloe had set up for her from her kids.
And in it, Chicago mistakenly called her mother out for never cooking for the family in a humorous message expressing everything she loved about her.
Kim posted the card to her stories, which said: ‘Mom doesn’t cook. She has a chef,’ to which Kim replied, ‘OMG 😂.’
As soon as she opened the card, a video of Psalm wishing her a “Happy Mother’s Day” started playing automatically. Chicago then playfully entered the scene and repeated the greeting.
“You are the best in the world,” North, Kim’s oldest daughter, remarked in a more subdued tone to the camera, “You make my day every day.”
Saint was also shown briefly in the clip, saying how much he loved his mom.
Later that day, Kim wrote in a follow-up post that “Chi was wrong, I do cook. LOL” in an effort to defend her culinary abilities.
She shared a picture of herself baking beeshee, traditional pancakes from her father Robert Kardashian’s family, on social media.
She also joked about what her late father would have remarked while sharing a close-up of a pancake with a thick layer of sugar on it.
“My dad would say… ‘Kimberly do you want some Beeshee with your sugar’ 🤣.”
But now, Kim has opened up about single motherhood …
And it seems as though it’s a lot more tricky than she makes it seem.
She opened up in a clip released by People magazine.
“So, like, when you’re in it, I mean, especially when they’re babies and you’re feeding… there’s madness going on. It’s like full madness,” she said.
“It’s the best chaos though.”
“It’s like I always have to do one of my daughter’s hair — and it has to be perfect and it has to be a certain way — and then this one needs me to put his shoes on and they all need you.”
“It’s like full crazy madness, cooking, running around. Like, it’s wild.”
Kim even admitted: “There are nights I cry myself to sleep. Like, ‘What just happened?'”
“You know, with all the moods and the personalities and sometimes they’re fighting and there’s no one there.”
She concluded: “It is the most challenging, rewarding job on this planet.”
