Kourtney Kardashian Says She Sometimes Struggles With Her Family’s Fame: ‘When Is It Enough?’
Kourtney Kardashian is the oldest Kardashian sister, and she’s been at the forefront of the Kardashian’s fame since Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered back in 2007. However, Kardashian and all of her siblings would agree that the fame the Kardashians have seen since that 30-minute reality show started has been completely unexpected. And sometimes, it’s a bit too much.
Kardashian’s entire adult life has been documented on the show
Ever since the show premiered on E! back in 2007, Kardashian’s every move has been highlighted — and not all areas of her life have been great. Her on-again-off-again relationship with ex Scott Disick was always being filmed for the show, and fans saw their most vulnerable moments, including when Disick had major alcohol problems. Kardashian gave birth to three children on the show, all of which were personal moments that she chose to share with viewers. After a while, it would be hard for anyone to deal with the lack of privacy that comes with the family’s fame.
All of the sisters have had their personal lives broadcast on television
Kardashian isn’t the only one who has had her personal life filmed for millions of people. Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy struggles, psoriasis flare ups, and other illnesses have also been filmed. And Khloé Kardashian’s relationship drama with both Lamar Odom and Tristan Thompson were front and center in filming, too. Kendall and Kylie Jenner have done their best to keep their lives as private as possible; both women have kept their relationships off the show, and Kylie Jenner even hid her entire pregnancy from the public.
Kardashian said she struggles with the thought of missing moments in her kids’ lives
Though Kardashian is thankful for the fame and fortune she’s been given, she recently said in an interview with The Real that she sometimes has to stop and ask herself when enough is enough. When talking about Kylie Jenner’s billionaire status, Kardashian said, “Probably subconsciously it makes us feel like, ‘When is it enough?’
“… And that’s a thing I always think to myself, ‘When is it enough?’ Because I don’t like missing out on certain things like doing my kids’ homework or certain after-school activities for different things like that,” she continued to say. Kardashian is suggesting that her busy life has interfered with her time with the kids, and she feels it gets to a point where she has to take a step back.
She has occasionally expressed her dislike for the fame on ‘KUWTK’
Kardashian has been open with her struggles with the fame in the past. There have been several times on KUWTK when Kardashian’s sisters have gotten frustrated with her not wanting to work or make appearances. And while it should be understood that Kardashian has a job to do, it should also be understood that she probably just wants to make sure that she doesn’t work her whole life away and miss those important moments with her family as her children grow up.
