She may not get a choice, however. While Kendall and Kylie have always sorta floated along in the background of the Kardashian family’s insane collection of reality shows, she’s pretty okay with it. She still gets all the “opportunities” (as she calls them) associated with fame without having to actually be on camera 24/7 like her sisters. However, producer (LOL) Ryan Seacrest wants her to be a bigger part of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to portray her “coming of age” story. Oh, brother.
From The New York Times:
But in 2011, the network broadcast “Kendall’s Sweet 16,” a special that showed her attending her birthday party and getting her driver’s license. Since then, she has shown up more frequently in the series. “I don’t know any different,” she said of growing up on TV. Still, she added: “I don’t want to be a big part of the show. Neither does my little sister, only because we want for a little while to keep our somewhat normal lives.”
In a 2011 episode called “Kim Becomes a Stage Mom,” Ms. Jenner headed to New York for a gig modeling prom dresses, only to storm out of a runway coaching session after her half-sister pushed too hard. “I was just like, I don’t know,” Ms. Jenner said, explaining her behavior. “My sister was being kind of annoying, and I was just overwhelmed.”
Among other things, she had been concerned about missing cheerleading practice. Both Jenner sisters have since left Sierra Canyon; at their request, they’re now home-schooled to allow them more time to focus on careers. “It’s fun,” Ms. Jenner said. “There’s so many just crazy opportunities. That’s the upside.”
I actually remember that episode well – Kim was really pushing Kendall into the famewhore lifestyle. Kendall was being a brat, sure, but is there anything wrong with saying you don’t want to follow in crybaby Kim’s footsteps? I don’t think so.
Here’s what Ryan Seacrest had to say about changing things up:
“The original concept was the three primary sisters, but one of the things that we’ve noticed is the viewers have connected with Kendall growing up,” he said. “A coming of age story is always compelling.”
Stop the madness! In any case, Kendall is a pain in the ass. She wants all the benefits of fame without the “work”, and her claiming that she isn’t really into fame is just bullshit. If it weren’t for your family’s fame, you’d be just another California girl working a barista job at Starbucks inbetween desperately going for modeling auditions. Chill.
