This really shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Of course the Kardashians would consider an E! News personality as part of their family.

The group’s newly-released Christmas card – which somehow, magically appeared online – includes the all the usual suspects (Kourtney, Khloe, Kim Kardashian; Bruce Jenner, Lamar Odom, etc.)… and Ryan Seacrest.

On her official blog, Kim wrote:

“What is Ryan Seacrest doing in the pic!!? I love you to death, Ryan, but it’s a bit of a stretch to call you a member of the Kardashian family, don’t you think? I know you’re dying to be a part of the family, so just for this Christmas, we’ll make your wish come true!”

This is why you have to love/hate/admire/detest the Kardashians: do they really expect us to believe that Seacrest was accidentially included on the card?

Kim acts as if this wasn’t 100% planned by her publicist. Someone had the idea to stick Ryan in the photo, circulate it around the Internet and create a new round of headlines for the attention-hungry family.

It’s both utterly grating and completely genius at the same time.
