Crazy with a capital K
The Kardashians are bringing 11 seasons of bonkers behaviour to a TV near you.
Kim K, mother-manager Kris Jenner and the rest of the reality TV gang have invaded internet streaming service ShowMax. The first 11 seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians (2007- current) are available on the ShowMax catalogue – that’s 160 episodes of fights, eye-rolling, squeals and screams, diva demands and living the lifestyles of the super-rich and super-famous – the crazy antics viewers have come to love (or loathe) from reality TV’s First Family. But can you remember all those seasons way back?
KRAZY IN SEASON 1 (2007)
The family are neat freaks – Rob even stacks his cola cans facing the same way in his fridge! So what better way to make everyone uncomfortable than Khloé and Kourtney taking in a friendly hobo named Shorty who was living in the dumpster behind the Kardashians’ boutique in episode 8? They give him a scrub, a trim and some new gear… and send him back to live in his cardboard box. It’s the thought that counts.
KRAZY IN SEASON 2 (2008)
Kim did a “tasteful” nudie photoshoot for her football star boyfriend Reggie Bush… and Reggie alone (in episode 9). But guess who’s spotted an opportunity to boost Kim’s profile (and make extra $$$ on the side)? Momager dearest Kris. But two can play at that game and Kim sells Kris’s saucy snaps from season 1 that were meant for hubby Bruce’s eyes only. At least we know that Kim is her mom’s daughter.
KRAZY IN SEASON 3 (2009)
It was rumoured that Khloé isn’t a real Kardashian and that Kris cheated on then-husband Robert Kardashian Sr (his claim to fame was working on murder-accused football star OJ Simpson’s trial team in 1995). With Kris not putting out fires, Khloé takes revenge in episode 6 by getting a DNA test… but not to see who her dad was! Instead, Khloé takes a sample from Kris to find out if Kris really is her biological mother. It’s not like Kris doesn’t have any photos of herself being pregnant or of Khloé as a baby or anything…
KRAZY IN SEASON 4 (2009)
A list of early craziness wouldn’t be complete without Kourtney’s babydaddy Lord Scott Disick. Back in episode 10, Scott hadn’t officially bought his “Lord” title (that’s in season 7), but he’s still a pretentious snob who looks down on everyone. Mix in his problems with booze – he loves the stuff – and you’ve got a recipe for reality TV disaster. Like when he ruins Kim’s Vegas birthday by shoving a $100 bill in a waiter’s mouth. That’s when Kourtney decides to ditch Scott, until episode 11 when she takes him back. Oi vey.
KRAZY IN SEASON 5 (2010)
When you live in LA, image is important. And when you’re a Kardashian, it’s everything! That’s why Kim (who was only 29 in episode 5) goes for Botox fillers when Kris points out that she’s getting crow’s feet around her eyes. Kim’s doctor is a little too rough with the injections and her eyes go all puffy and purple and she looks like a swollen pufferfish. Which everyone in the family loves, obviously.
