Is Kylie Jenner Planning to One-Up Kim Kardashian West?

Kim Kardashian West has easily secured the title of most famous Kardashian for nearly two decades. But, Kardashian West’s baby sister, Kylie Jenner, has been giving her a literal run for her money as of late. Not only does Jenner have a much larger net worth than that of her sister (known globally as the youngest “self-made” billionaire), she also has nearly as many Instagram followers as her older sister.

Though Kourtney Kardashian has felt pressure to keep up with her fellow KarJenner’s following Jenner reaching billionaire status, Kardashian West seems to not let Jenner’s net worth affect her as much. For Jenner’s part, she looks up to Kardashian West a great deal and has been open about how much she has sought advice from her older sister to help her navigate extreme fame. “Happy birthday to my beautiful big sister. I’m so blessed to have you in my life!! Your love, guidance, selflessness, and loyalty are unmatched I love you in this life and beyond,” Jenner posted on Instagram on October 21 in honor of Kardashian West’s birthday.

But, Kardashian West isn’t the only KarJenner who celebrated a birthday recently. Kendall Jenner turned 24 on November 3 and two days later, the KarJenner momager, Kris Jenner, celebrated her 64th year around the sun. For her mother’s birthday, Kardashian West went all out and rented out her childhood home for the day. “Okay. So our lunch is not at the Beverly Hills Hotel today. So open up your invites to see where we’re going,” the KKW Beauty owner said in a video that she later posted to her Instagram page.

Will Kylie Jenner buy the house

After it was revealed that Kardashian West had rented out her childhood home for the day, Kris Jenner and her other daughters got emotional. Kardashian West was quick to clarify with a caveat that she’d only rented it for the day. “Big disclaimer I did not buy it. I rented it for the day. I did not buy it. It’s not for sale,” the mother of four said. The room erupts in emotion, but if you listen closely you can hear someone who sounds a lot like Kylie “billionaire” Jenner say, “Let’s buy it.” Following that, another persona chimes in “Kylie’s like ‘I want to buy it.'”

Today we celebrate my mom. Anyone that knows her, knows how sentimental she is. For her birthday I planned a small lunch, with just her kids and her closest friends of 40 + years. I sent out invites with a location where we all met. When everyone arrived, I told them I had a surprise and this wasn’t where we would be eating. I then gave everyone the REAL invitation and once everyone saw the address for where we would be going tears filled the room. I rented our childhood home. All of our memories live here especially with our dad. It’s where each Kardashian child was born and made us who we are. Growing up, the home had the most ridiculous wallpaper and kitchen set! I remade all of our table settings, decor out of the same fabric and print as the wallpaper. We had lunch at the home as if it hadn’t changed and we cried the entire time. When we walked out to get our cars to drive there, I had another surprise! I had rented every car my parents ever owned. I had some waiting outside so we could drive them to the house and the rest were lined up in the driveway of the house exactly how my parents used to have them parked. I even remade the exact license plates. (Yes my mom had a 2 DIE 4 license plate!) We drove to the home in these cars and relived our childhood! This was the best day ever. I am so proud I was able to keep such a meaningful surprise a secret from my mom and sisters for weeks! This was the most special, nostalgic day of my life and we felt my dad’s presence enjoying this day with us! I kept it together and didn’t cry the entire lunch even though I cried during the entire planning process. But at the end I went into my old bathroom, closed the door and cried so hard.

Will Kylie Jenner one-up Kim Kardashian West

But, is Jenner really planning to one-up her older sister? Certainly, with her net worth, she could likely afford to buy the house no matter what the asking price. Though the Beverly Hills home is not currently for sale, Jenner could always make the current owner an offer that they can’t refuse. But, it’s also quite possible that Jenner was just joking and that she has no real plans to usurp Kardashian West’s gift by purchasing the house outright. After all, Jenner has openly admitted that her sisters often like to joke about her billionaire status. But, even if she does decide to one-up her sister, we’re certain it’s a gift the whole family will enjoy.
