First, let's start with this:
That's not a typo in the headline.
The Kardashians and Jenners really are posing below for a Christmas-themed photograph. See for yourself:
The image was shared on social media by Kris Jenner last night and, yes, it does also include former Olympic Silver Medal ice skater Nancy Kerrigan.
For some reason.
"Oh no big deal...just Ice Skating with @nancyakerrigan in Calabasas in 95 degree heat for our Christmas Special!!!! #nancykerrigan," wrote Kris as a caption to the unexpected snapshot.
In the festive photo, you can see the following famous members of this family:
- Kendall Jenner
- Khloe Kardashian
- Kourtney Kardashian
- Kourtney’s son, Reign Disick
- Kim Kardashian
- Kim's daughter, North West
Notice who we did not mention?
Notice who is missing in photographic action?
Is she trying to hide her baby bump? Is she ashamed of this pregnancy, as some folks on the Internet have speculated?
No, an insider claims to People Magazine.
“They taped a Christmas special at Kris’ house. Kylie was there, but didn’t ice skate. She kept in the background, but seemed great,” this source explains.
As for why the family is doing Christmas stuff now?!?
Basically because they're admitting that Keeping Up with the Kardashians is a bunch of scripted nonsense.
"We just started filming our KUWTK Christmas Special! Can’t wait for you guys to see this & see what our holiday prep is like!" wrote Kim on Twitter.
This is how TV works, of course. Episodes don't air until several weeks after they are filmed.
But it should give fans of the series some pause to realize that the "celebration" you'll see on the small screen in December really took place in October.
The Kardashians often release a Christmas card that goes viral every year, but it's unclear whether that will happen in 2017.
For one thing, both Kylie AND Khloe will be rocking impressive baby bumps, as each is due to give birth early next year.
Kim may also be a tad busy planning for her next baby: a surrogate will welcome Kim and Kanye's third child in January.
In other words: by this time in 2018, there will be THREE new members of this family. How insane is that?
How many E! spinoffs will this increase in relatives lead to?
How much money will Kris Jenner manage to rake in as a result? We shudder to think.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays at 9/8c on E!.
It's really a pretty dumb show, if you ever take the time to watch it. Just sayin.
