Keeping up with the Kardashian is a Reality TY show of high profile celebrity members of the Kardashian – Jenner Family, in the show they give fans and millions of people an insight into their personal lives and day to day events. They revealed various secrets relating to their family and relationship. The show has since 2007 gained a lot of followers and fans who has kept up with the Kardashian every day of their lives. These followers are from all over the world including Nigeria. It starred Kris Jenner ,Caitlyn Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Scott Disick.
Since it’s premier, Keeping up with the Kardashians hàs been heavily criticised, especially because of its big and constant emphasis on “Being famous”, and also for appearing to not be true to some of its storylines, some of its storylines appear to be made up. Some critics noted that the show lacks intelligence, it rather seeks material pleasures and wealth alone
Rob Sheffield an American music journalist and Contributing Editor at Rolling Stone in his words said
“The Kardashians are the last ladies standing in reality TV because they’ve simply always believed they were celebrities – endlessly amused with themselves, endlessly oblivious to one another. Their vanity is impervious to the outside world, which is how many of us often wish our own personal vanity worked. Their gargantuan egos, their petty jealousies, their catty feuds, the effort-vs.-eye-roll they put into reciting their lines, their commitment to frivolity at all costs – these are seductive qualities in a reality-TV star, however repugnant they might be in real life. Whatever it is you watch reality TV for, the Kardashians just have a lot more of it.”
However, despite all of the criticisms, the show has maintained high viewership ratings, making it one of the highly viewed and successful show in the space and winning several awards.
Fans have reacted and definitely as they never expected it . The reactions are between cries of “We’ll miss you” to ” why now?”. I think with 18 seasons, 256 + 5 specials, it’s really been a long time coming. The decision must also be a tough one for the family to make. We wish the Kardashians well as they prepare for the last season of the show.
