RIP Keeping Up With The Kardashians: here’s its most iconic memes & moments

As the long-running reality show come to an end, we remember the best and worst moments, courtesy of the Kardashian Klan

Love it or loathe it, there’s no denying the cultural impact of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Yesterday (September 8), Kim Kardashian-West announced the end of the long-running reality show, which has been on air for 14 years, and has propelled the ever-expanding Kardashian Klan to dynasty-level proportions.

Since its initial release in October 2007, KUWTK has granted fans an insight into the wild and excessive lives of sisters Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney, as well as half-sisters Kendall and Kylie – and, of course, momager Kris. Before the show was synonymous with selfies, contouring, and big boxes of salads, it was dominated by questionable noughties fashion, sibling rivalry, and outright weird storylines. Think: the time Khloe, Kim and Kourtney rented a baby chimp for Kris to look after, or when Kris pissed herself. We were with the fam through their missteps and triumphs – the galling aftermath of Kendall’s notorious Pepsi protest ad, the terrible, traumatic Paris robbery, multiple births, marriages, and divorces (72! Days! Married!), tabloid scandals. It charted their wise and wild business ventures – Kendall’s modelling career, Kim’s game app that made her a tech mogul, the DASH boutique stores that (kind of?) shook the fashion industry to its fringed belt core, the nebulous IG spon-cons, the Kylie Jenner make-up empire, Rob’s…. sock business. And most important of all, we saw every shook eye-widen, withering comment with vocal fry, and botox-ed face pull made into a meme in real time.

While the show has definitely divided opinion in past years, we celebrate the cultural phenomenon that is KUWTK, from its messiest moments to the most iconic – BIBLE.
