‘KUWTK’: is the Show Only Continuing So the Kardashians Can Keep Living Their Lavish Lifestyles?
Keeping Up with the Kardashians may have run its course. Fans are continually disappointed in the new episodes. In fact, it seems like at this point most fans only watch it to complain about it online later.
In a recent Reddit post, fans speculated about why the Kardashians are even still doing the show. They’re all multi-millionaires, so they don’t really need the money. Still, fans think even their excessive wealth may not be enough to keep up with their lifestyle. It’s that new luxurious lifestyle that has fans turned off in the first place.
Fans don’t find Keeping up with the Kardashians relatable anymore
Even though the girls were still rich at the beginning of the series, they didn’t flaunt their wealth, or live with extreme luxury. Now that all that’s changed, fans don’t really find the show as interesting to watch. It’s hard to relate to the sisters since they are so far from average in terms of wealth and lifestyle.
All that new money has made the sisters increasingly reliant on help, which is even more of a turn off for fans. During the Christmas episode, for example, Kourtney wanted a relaxing morning at her home with the family. She didn’t want caterers coming in and out of the kitchen on Christmas morning, so she said they would be doing everything themselves.
Kim and Khloé downright refused. Fans on Reddit made fun of Khloé for her completely out of touch reaction. The youngest Kardashian sister was beside herself at the thought of toasting her own bagel and making coffee one cup at a time. Fans think this over-reliance on luxury is why they’re still doing the show.
The Kardashian-Jenner sisters definitely have money
Obviously if she has so many servants that she’s forgotten how a coffee pot works, Khloé is pretty spoiled. Fans think that’s why they keep doing the show. Without it, she would still have money, but it may be ‘toast your own bagel’ money.
Khloé is rich enough to retire, with a net worth of $40 million. While it seems like a lot of money, fans think she and her sisters still do the show because it’s just not enough to support their lifestyle. As one fan put it, “I think it’s based off having as much revenue as possible. As much as we think they make/have, they have continuous expenses.”
They need cash on hand for their clothes, travel, and assistants. Plus, just because they’re worth millions doesn’t mean they actually have millions at the ready.
Not all net worth is liquid
Yes, all of the KarJen sisters are worth a ton of money. They could probably all retire and live without working for the rest of their lives, but they may not be able to maintain the same lifestyle. While for the rest of us, their wealth could buy a comfortable lifestyle, fans think they’ve become used to something more lavish.
While high net worth numbers may shock fans, it’s very possible that not all that money is actually liquid. Net worth takes into account property, stock holdings, businesses, and other non-liquid forms of money. So while they may be multi-millionaires, it’s not clear how much cash they actually have on hand, and how much is tied up in other assets. A multi-million dollar mansion is nice to have, but it doesn’t pay the bills in and of itself.
The Kardashian Jenner sisters definitely have a lot of expenses. They have a lot of help for themselves and their children, which has to cost money, and that money has to be cash.
