Do the Kardashian-Jenners Own Too Many Houses?

One of the ways that the richest among us like to spend their cold, hard cash is on real estate. Fans, of course, love to get a peek inside of these often sprawling estates that put everyday people’s living quarters to shame.

Even when the decor or architectural choices are questionable, it’s inspiring and a little overwhelming to think about living in such excess and luxury. Perhaps no family represents this kind of over-the-top lifestyle better than the Kardashian-Jenners. 

A recent glimpse into the family adjusting to life in quarantine on Keeping Up With the Kardashians has fans wondering if they collectively own too many houses.

It wasn’t that long ago that the Kardashian-Jenner family members were almost always talked about as a unit. They came onto the scene out of relative obscurity to bring the world KUWTK, a reality TV show that offered intimate glimpses into their personal lives.

The series revamped reality TV as we know it, and in the process it helped launch the respective careers of each of the five siblings most prominently featured on the show — not to mention many of their significant others, past and present. 

When the series premiered, the sisters were either young adults or children, and they were all working hard to make it in the celebrity world. Now, however, the sisters have grown up.

Most of them have children of their own, and the focus is less on trying to get ahead and more on where each will take her own career to distinguish herself from the reality TV start.

Each sister has a commanding presence on social media, but their influencer spheres have taken different routes. Kendall Jenner makes her living as a model while Kylie Jenner has broken records — and caused quite a controversy over her financial status — as a cosmetics mogul.

Kim Kardashian West has been working alongside her husband Kanye West to build a new home — and some think cult — in Wyoming while working on a law degree. Kourtney Kardashian has made a name for herself among lifestyle influencers with her brand Poosh.

Only Khloé Kardashian, who seems very connected to KUWTK for her fame, seems to be struggling to find a foothold on her own.  

Meanwhile, the sisters have been busy building families in their personal lives and trying to manage walking the line between privacy and fame.

While many have speculated that KUWTK has to be coming to its inevitable conclusion as the once nuclear family has each moved on to their own lives and homes, it hasn’t happened yet. The show has gotten disconnected and complex as it attempts to bring together these separate lives, but a quarantine episode made that more apparent than ever. 

The Kardashian-Jenners met virtually during quarantine

A recent episode of KUWTK was filmed while the family was observing quarantine rules for the COVID-19 pandemic. Since they couldn’t get together in person, they instead met over video chat. Fans who watched the episode used it as an opportunity to question the way that the family members treat their enormous houses. 

It started out with fans on a Reddit thread questioning why Kris Jenner wouldn’t just move Grandma MJ in with her since she has such a large house and surely could spare a room.

This lead to a discussion of just how many houses the Kardashians own and how much they don’t like to share their spaces with one another:

“They’re honestly so weird about houses, like whenever they’re redoing their houses and they’re running around because they have ‘nowhere to live.’ Like multiple people in your family own multiple houses, each of which are gigantic. I mean seriously, normal people with normal sized houses will have their parents or family stay with them when needed, the KarJenners always turn it into this ordeal to have a whole episode around as though it’s relatable and it’s really not.”

Do the Kardashian-Jenner family members own too many houses? They certainly have a lot of space to spread out in, but perhaps after all that together time in front of the cameras, they need room to get away and have their own space.
