Kris Jenner cares about one thing in life: money. Oh, make that two things – she cares about publicity, too. They sorta go hand in hand, so if anything comes along in life to threaten that, she’ll be there like a bat out of hell to make sure every tabloid going has got her family’s face plastered on the front of it at all costs.
For this reason, poor Rob Kardashian has sorta fallen by the wayside, relegated to a life of designing an exclusive sock collection because he got fat. Like, real fat by Kardashian standards. While he’s been working on slimming down and getting his life on track, apparently that’s not good enough and Kris is ready to send his ass to fat camp so he can stop embarrassing the family.
From The Daily Mail:
Kris Jenner is reported to have told her son Rob Kardashian he is an embarrassment to the family.
The 26-year-old has battled a persistent weight gain since splitting with Rita Ora in 2012, and the momager is alleged to have said enough is enough.
Kris, 58, reportedly hit out at Rob saying his fitness struggle has made him lose ‘out on business opportunities’.
A source told the publication: ‘Rob is fatter than ever, and Kris finally flat out told him he’s an embarrassment to the family.
‘She called him a fat slob and said he’s losing out on business opportunities because no one wants someone as huge as him representing their products.’
And his sisters are alleged to be supporting Kris’ position: ‘They’re embarrassed to be photographed with him and bully him for being fat.’
The insider added: ‘They also tease him by leaving cakes and cookies around to tempt him.’
But that’s not all, as Kris wants Rob to go to fat camp: ‘She’s told him that if he wants to continue to be an active part of their family, he’s going to attend a camp and lose the weight once and for all.’
What a wonderful family to be part of. I’m surprise she actually suggested that he work out to lose weight, but I suppose there’s no plastic surgery for that, really (none that he’s big enough to qualify for) and that’s usually that family’s go-to for everything.
I dunno, Rob was always kind of a layabout who lived off his sisters’ charity when he was younger (from what we saw on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but who knows how that was edited), but I feel bad for him. He’s part of a family of harpy fame whores who care more about their “images” than they do about their actual family. I hate to say it, but it’s true. No wonder the dude has taken to eating for comfort. When you’re surrounded by people who literally starve themselves to make sure they can strip off for whatever magazine comes calling at the drop of a dime.

Rob Kardashian isn’t doing much with his life besides shedding some pounds in the hopes of getting an endorsement deal (most likely) and selling overpriced socks, so what better way to get a bit of the limelight than by sticking your nose in and offering commentary on something that really doesn’t involve you and no one cares about your opinion of? That’s right, Rob has lashed out at “haters” of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s baby North West’s name. Prepare for some deep philosophical thought here, people.
From Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM show (because who else would interview him than the producer of his family’s reality show):
“When it comes to babies I like to give the person all their time with their significant other [to] let them enjoy their moment,” the Arthur George sock designer shares. “I’m happy the baby is healthy and my sister is healthy.”
However, although he’s giving them their space, Rob did have some advice for the new parents, especially when it comes to the little girl’s name.
“I told Kim and Kanye this: I’m like, ‘Yo, people are always going to talk whether it’s good or bad. There’s always going to be the haters, but do what you guys feel.’ Like, you know everyone’s going to say, ‘Oh, you’re coming up with some weird celebrity, crazy name.’ You know how it is.”
“[But] North West, it sounds cool! [And] North is the highest point, so it has a lot of meaning to it.”

We all know the story by now: Rob Kardashian got fat (his words) and it was all Rita Ora‘s fault. Because, you know, what you do to your own body is everyone else’s fault.But enough playing the victim – he decided to get fit and has indeed shed some pounds since starting a new diet and exercise regimen in February. He showed off his progress at the launch of his bullshit sock line last Saturday, where he caught up with US Weekly to give them the “scoop” (because who actually cares?) on how he’s doing.
“I still have to lose like 40 to 50 pounds believe it or not,” Kardashian told Us Weekly at the event. “Six months I should be there.”
In March, Kardashian told Us he weighed 235 pounds and recruited friends to join him in twice-daily workouts. On Saturday, he admitted, “That got [to be] too much . . . we do that, but I’m kind of doing my own thing with Lamar [Odom]‘s trainer. He’s on salary since he was 19 years old, so he works for us. I’ve been spending time with him.”
To help with his weight loss, Kardashian also said he’s cutting back on drinking. “I’m not really drinking out here in Vegas — I’ve been here since Wednesday and I leave Monday — that’s way too long,” the sock designer said. “But I’m trying to get in a healthy direction.”
I’m going to Vegas for the first time in August but I’d rather hit a buffet than the bar, so that should tell you everything you need to know about me. Still, the alcohol will pack the pounds on you (and, you know, degrade your liver) so it’s good that he’s not drinking too much. But seriously, doesn’t 40 or 50 lbs seem like a bit too much for him to lose?
I used to really like Rob and think he was probably the best Kardashian (hey, beggars can’t be choosers with that family), but then he got all whiny and pissy because he was doing nothing with his life and people were tired of rewarding him for it. Get it together, Rob. And then, you know, get away from that family as quickly as you can. After all, you’ll never be favoured over Kim.

They say when you have multiple children that you should (and usually do) love them all equally, though in different ways. I imagine this unspoken rule is null and void, though when one of your kids puts out a sex tape that puts your entire family on the map and manages to pull in more money for you in a week than your other kids do in a year, combined. Such is the case with Kris Jenner and her brood – Khloe, Kim, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie… and Rob. We like to forget about Rob whenever we can.
Khloe Kardashian appears on the cover of the new issue of Cosmopolitan, and her interview is… vaguely depressing. It’s probably meant to be enlightening, but it’s pretty obvious that momager Kris favours Kim over the other girls. You gotta treat your cash cow right, don’t you?
“I’d never manage my kids. We gang up on Mom and that has to be so hard. Now I’m getting older I feel sorry for her rather than resent her.
“[Once my mom told me] I was gaining weight, but she was talking to me as a manager, like I was ruining a brand deal. It’s hard to understand that and it’s more hurtful when it’s coming from my mom, but Kim is definitely her favorite.
“It doesn’t bother me. They’re so similar – they could be the same person.”
I know it seems like she doth protest too much (and seriously, who WOULDN’T care if your siblings were favoured over you?), but maybe since it’s Kris, Khloe is being honest here. After all, the most attention Kris has ever given her was when she was begging her to take a DNA test to find out whether or not she was actually a Kardashian or a by-product of her old ass affair. This whole family just needs to stop.

Rob Kardashian, you warm my heart with your silly endeavors. You got fat, blamed it on Rita Ora, then called her a slut. And now, delightful young man, you have to deal with something that is just too wonderfully silly to even say: you have to deal with disappointing sock sales. Your designer socks aren’t selling. Because you thought you should design socks. And you thought people would buy these socks. For $30. Socks that you designed. You, Rob Kardashian. Socks.
My heart is so full.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s high-priced ‘Arthur George by Rob Kardashian’ line of socks is poised to be dumped from Neiman Marcus stores if stagnant sales don’t improve, RadarOnline.com has learned.
“Rob’s socks sold around the Christmas holiday, but since then no one has been really buying them,” a source at the Neiman Marcus store in Beverly Hills said.
“We actually had to ship a bunch out to other stores because they weren’t moving at all. To be honest, a lot of customers bought them more as a gag gift. At this point it doesn’t look like we’re going order anymore.”
The 26-year-old wannabe fashionista launched his pricey footwear at $30 per item — the busy patterned line includes the Camo, Graffiti and Swirls — and are sold exclusively at luxury specialty department store Neiman Marcus.
No one wants to buy Rob’s socks.
Even if they came with lox.
Or inside a lovely box.
Socks by Rob are not so great.
Kardashians won’t celebrate.
For socks by Rob are not ideal
And $30 is not a steal.

Tale as old as time, people. Rob Kardashian and Rita Ora were only ever f-ck buddies, as we all know, but since it took Rob so long to get that through his thick skull, he decided a while back when she broke up with him that he’d spread some rumours online about her cheating on him by sleeping with over 20 other dudes and claiming that he’d got her pregnant at one point. He’s since admitted that’s not true and that he’s just mad because he got fat, obviously, but Rita thinks – probably rightfully so – that he might not be mentally stable.
From Look (via DigitalSpy):
“I don’t vocalise things that don’t deserve attention,” she told Look. “But it was something that was so unnecessary. Why would you flood people’s brains with unnecessary s**t?
“In my world, things like that just aren’t important. Twitter… can ruin your life. I thought I nearly had a ‘ruined’ moment, but no.”
She continued: “When you’re involved with someone for a while and they decided to express their feelings to the public – that’s not my personal way of therapy, but I guess everyone takes split-ups differently.
“You should have to sit an exam before you go on Twitter to see if you’re mentally stable.”
I say this all the time, girl – you should have to sit an exam before you can go on the Internet, full stop. People are f-cking crazy, and Rob Kardashian is a perfect example. Then again, that’s just the immature kinda bullshit that young people do – spread lies online just because they’ve been rejected. Oh, boo hoo, Rita Ora doesn’t want to be with my lazy, freeloader ass anymore. Guess I’ll go call her a slut on the internet, because that’s the worst thing you can do to a woman and I’m a scumbag! Spare me this bro.
I’m not a massive Rita Ora fan – though I do like her enough – but the fact that women become sluts or bitches when they don’t want anything to do with a man anymore chaps my hide. Male apologists, please step right up in the comments because your bullshit will fall on deaf ears. This happens way too often and it needs to stop.
