The Kardashian-Jenner clan has wormed its way into the hearts of fans all over the world through their reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Now on Season 11, E! has decided to air a series of bonus specials alongside the regular Season 11 episodes. The first installment is titled “Kardashian Family Rules.”
The tight-knit clan has shared their lives with the public and have shown their unique personalities over the years. Since the show’s premiere in 2007, they have stayed fun, interesting and most importantly, very family-oriented. Here’s a summary of the top 10 “Kardashian Family Rules.”
Rule 1: The family that plays together, stays together. There has never been a shortage of wacky antics and horsing around in episodes of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” The kids often play around and they have been known to be a little rough with each other even as adults.
Rule 2: Boundaries Schmoundaries. The Kardashians and the Jenners invented the concept of Too Much Information (TMI). On several occasions throughout the show’s 11 seasons, they have been seen in very compromising and revealing situations. Khloe Kardashian has had her private parts burnt due to a bad wax job by her sister Kourtney. On another occasion, Kourtney asked her boyfriend, Scott Disick, to give her a shave while Khloe looks on.
Rule 3: Honesty is the best policy. The members of the family have never held back their opinion about each other. They never hesitated to speak up about what they think, no matter how harsh it may sound. One time, Bruce Jenner (now known as Caitlyn) told Khloe to lose weight before appearing in a revealing PETA campaign. Kourtney once told a story about how she peed on the floor.
Rule 4: You're sexy, you know it, show it!. If there’s anything that the family is known for, it’s how sexy they are. In case you didn’t know, they always found an opportunity to remind you. Scenes from various nude and revealing photoshoots often make it to the show. Some examples are Kim’s Playboy cover in Season 1, Khloe’s recent Complex magazine shoot and Kourtney’s nude maternity shoot.
Rule 5: Parlez-vous Kardashian. The family has invented various words and expressions that have now become familiar pop culture jargon. Some examples are: “slob kebab” (unkempt, sloppy), “slore” (a woman of low repute), “bible” (I swear) and “doll” (Kardashian term of endearment).
Rule 6: Laughter is the best medicine. The Kardashians and the Jenners never hesitate to laugh at themselves and at each other. Many of them have had their fair share of spills and bloopers that were all caught on camera.
Rule 7: Mischief on the menu. Thanks to a lifetime of training with Kris Jenner, the members of the family have a deep appreciation for shenanigans. Oftentimes, Kris is the unfortunate victim. They often play pranks on each other, and some are fun, but some are also quite nasty.
Rule 8: It's ok to be extra emotional. It’s not all fun and games in the Kardashian-Jenner universe. They have been through many ups and downs over the years. Kim’s ugly crying face has become infamous after making several appearances. Kim, Khloe, Kris and Caitlyn all went through a divorce on camera. Kourtney Kardashian’s breakup with Scott Disick is currently a major plot point in Season 11.
Rule 9: Get your role play on. Dressing up and role playing is a lot of fun. Kim, Kourtney and even Scott, have all donned some interesting costumes and different personas in the show.
Rule 10: Family first. The rule that takes center stage throughout any situation is that they always choose family first. They are all genuinely best friends, and this is what keeps the show going for so many years.
After 11 seasons and a new generation of family members invading the screen, it remains to be seen if the Kardashians and the Jenners will continue to entertain the world for another 10 seasons.
“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” airs every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on E!.
