Kardashian Fans Think Kourtney Deserves to Be Treated Better by Her Family

As the eldest sibling in the Kardashian-Jenner family, Kourtney Kardashian has often led the way for her other family members, setting an example for them to follow. She was the only sister to earn a college degree and was the first to welcome a baby.

However, Kardashian hasn’t always been treated with a lot of respect from other members of her family. Recently, some Reddit users opened up about specific instances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians where Kardashian seemed to get the short end of the stick and why her family should treat her better.

When Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered in 2007, the eldest Kardashian sister was in her mid-twenties and working on her career, with a bachelor’s degree under her belt. She came relatively late to the fame game, especially in comparison to her younger sister, Kylie Jenner, who has grown up in the spotlight. As such, Kardashian might have had a slighter tougher time adjusting to some of the elements of fame that many of her other family members seem to thrive on.

Kardashian’s sisters, Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, have often given her grief for her perceived work ethic, claiming that she doesn’t want to work as hard as the other family members. Kourtney Kardashian has responded by stating that she doesn’t want to miss out on the special moments in her kid’s lives, and so she doesn’t feel bad about turning down some of the work offers that she receives.

In contrast to her younger sister, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian doesn’t mind stepping away from the spotlight and doesn’t engage with people on social media nearly as much.

Fans believe that Kourtney Kardashian has been treated badly

Because of Kardashian’s responses to some of the more difficult parts of life in the spotlight, many fans believe that she simply doesn’t have any interest in being a celebrity. In a recent Reddit thread, fans discussed how Kardashian has been treated poorly by her family for that reason, among others.

The original poster stated that, especially in the early seasons, Kardashian’s family was very critical of many of her decisions, including the fact that she never really wanted to marry her long-time boyfriend: Scott Disick.

Reddit posters stated that Kris Jenner always seems to take Kim Kardashian’s side, whenever Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian get into a fight. Also, the family seems to scold Kourtney Kardashian for not including Disick in every party or family activity, even though they have been broken up for years.

All in all, it definitely appears that the Kardashian/Jenner family is a bit too critical of Kardashian.

Kourtney Kardashian seems to be in a good place

Even if Kardashian has historically taken some flack from her family, these days, she’s doing better than ever. She recently launched her lifestyle website, Poosh, which lets fans in on some of her favorite things, including ways to achieve balance in everyday life.

Kardashian is peacefully co-parenting her three children with her ex, Disick, and while she doesn’t seem to be dating anyone at the moment, she also seems quite content with her own company and that of her three children.

While it’s not clear how much longer Keeping Up with the Kardashians will be on the air, Kardashian is probably with the show for the duration/ After all, even if she doesn’t love taking on all the extra assignments associated with reality show fame, the show does enable her (and her kids) to live a lavish lifestyle.
