Help! The Kardashians are Everywhere!

Every since the Kardashians have hit the scene they have been non stop with their quest for fame and fortune. There isn't a day that goes by that you won't see some news snippet on the nothings that they do each day. They have invaded all facets of media with the purpose of staying as popular as they can with as many people as possible. Their main way of accomplishing their takeover of shameless self promotion is with their TV show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." For the past eight years, they have drained this show dry. Even when the show goes on hiatus there's a spinoff or some special that they've made that keeps this publicity machine going.

The relentless over exposure of themselves is why people just can't keep up with them anymore. More and more people are becoming disillusioned with the Kardashians and are questioning their validity on television. The show has recently started to drop in ratings, and people are starting to just tune out the Kardashians the best way that they can. There are many reasons why people aren't watching them like the used to. Below are 6 reasons why people are just not that into the Kardashians like they used to

Kris Jenner

Kris Jenner is the pimping matriarch of the Kardashian clan. Most people sing her praises for being such a savvy momager. It's no doubt that the major reason the Kardashians are as famous and as rich as they are is because of all her efforts to make her family known the world over. Kris Jenner handles every aspect of everything that the Kardashians do. From Kim Kardashian all the way down to Kendall Jenner. There isn't a photograph, tweet, or video posted of these girls that Kris doesn't know about or didn't condone.

The main source of their bread and butter is their reality show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." Kris Jenner is in full control over what happens on the show, and this is one reason that people don't like her. Most of the antics that happen on the show causes some people to view the family in a very negative light. They don't understand how a loving mother can condone some of the scandalous things her children does. Kris Jenner is known to milk any situation, no matter how inappropriate it is, for all the money that she can get.

She comes off as money hungry, callous, calculating, and indifferent manager and not a loving, concerned mother. She's viewed as a pariah because of endless pursuit of fame and fortune for herself and her children. Her argument has always been that she wants financial security for her family, but many people argue how sincere her goals are since she gets a cut of what each child makes. She does have financial a motivation for her kids success with reality television. But most people wonder how much is enough.

Kris Jenner really grinds most mothers the wrong way. They feel that she could be a little more motherly over her children instead of being their manager all the time. Some people argue that Kim Kardashian is really the only who wants fame, and that the rest of them can take it or leave it. But Kris Jenner is the one wanting to squeeze every penny she can get from each child. The reason people think this is her gargantuan support of Kim when her sex tape first came out. Most parents would not of campaigned for their child to use their sex tape as leverage for stardom.

Most people feel that Kris Jenner is a pimp, and that she does pimp her children out. They feel that she doesn't have a bottom she won't send her kids to as long as money is on the line. For this very reason, a lot of people really despise Kris Jenner. They feel that it's ok for her to push her kids to have success, but they believe she should do it by showcasing to her children what dignity is. Most people find serious fault with the fact that Kris Jenner thinks that every detail of her children's lives is for sale. Some people think that she should just let go of the manager role every once in while and just be a mom to her kids


Kim Kardashian

The biggest reason that people don't keep up with the Kardashians is because of Kim Kardashian herself. She's viewed as a man stealing social media prostitute who won't stop at nothing to put some money in her pocket. The show started out as a vehicle for Kim to become famous, but after a year or two it became very clear to millions of people that Kim Kardashian wanted more than that. She wants to rule the world. With the help of her pimp momager Kris, there's a big possibility that this could happen.

It's no secret that Kim Kardashian is extremely protective of her image. Many say that a lot of the things she does is to ensure that her image remains profitable. This very thing is a main reason people aren't fans of hers. The first major incident was her sex tape. Everyone felt that this dastardly deed was just over the top and completely wrong to expose her like this. Her first reaction to the scandal was one of disgust, betrayal, and devastation. Then she found out there was money could be made. So this incident got milked for all it could make. There were a lot of people on her side until people found out that she profited in the millions from the scandal. Once this information became known opinions of her changed from a good girl done wrong to she's just a calculating, money hungry female willing to do anything for money.

But it doesn't stop there. Kim Kardashian willingly puts every detail of her life on camera. So her romantic relationships are always the subject of scrutiny. Especially how she gets her men. The Kardashian women are known to steal a man or two from another woman. This just doesn't sit well with people who view this as wrong. Since it's a fact that this has happened on more than one occasion it leaves people feeling a little irritated. Most people can't with good conscience support someone who believes in wreaking homes.

Most people feel that Kim's relationships are all stepping-stones for more fame. Her short marriage to Chris Humphries caused more people to stop supporting Kim than any incident so far. Chris Humphries even tried to sue Kim because he believed that he got set up to marry Kim so her and her family could bilk the incident for money. Yet another incident that didn't endear Kim Kardashian to a lot of people. Most people sided with Chris on this issue, and felt that he got done very wrong in this incident. Kim still maintains that she loved Chris, but most people wonder if the love ran out because there was no other way to exploit the situation for more fame and money.

Kim Kardashian is the all time leader of exploit yourself for cash. Many speculate that her reality is really just a put on to take money out of people's pockets. After all, she's a normal girl with no talent. How interesting or entertaining can that be? Since Kim Kardashian doesn't actually have anything of value to offer people, most folks just aren't impressed with her in any way, and that's the reason they can't keep up with the Kardashians.


The Way They Treat Bruce

Bruce Jenner is a celebrated Olympian athlete. But in the Kardashian household, he gets treated like the extra button on a shirt. He purpose is to take the place of whatever button falls off the shirt. Bruce Jenner is mild-mannered, caring, and satisfied with his accomplishments in life. He just wants to fly his airplanes, play golf, raise his children, and be happy. Most people consider him a very good guy. He is very understanding of the never-ending pursuit his family has for fame and fortune. Even though he cares nothing about it at all.

He has two girls by Kris (Kylie and Kendall Jenner), and most people speculate that this is why he puts with all the shenanigans. A lot of people feel that Bruce Jenner is very mistreated by his wife Kris. She doesn't respect him, and publicly shows it. She is very condescending to him. His wishes tend to get ignored by most of the people in the family, and his needs are always placed on the back-burner. One thing that Bruce knows is he's not a priority whatsoever.

This is the next reason why people don't like to watch this show. They really feel that Bruce Jenner gets treated very poorly on this show. Most people feel that Bruce isn't shown the tiniest bit of respect. In order for that to happen he has to have a nervous breakdown. Even then he may get laughed at. It just depends on who's around. He has been so emasculated on the show that most people wonder if he's even still a man. But the general opinion is that he's mistreated, and most people don't care to watch that on a weekly basis.

They are always on Bruce's side when he does stand up for himself, but most times that just doesn't happen. Bruce Jenner has to fall in line with the program if he wants to continue being a part of the family. This mighty strive for ultra fame and fortune has estranged Bruce from his two sons Brody and Brandon Jenner. It wasn't until recently that these two boys even appeared on the show. Many blame Kris Jenner for the split, but most people agree that Bruce just isn't the man he once was. Since watching Bruce get mistreated each week is hard for most people to watch these people just don't tune into the Kardashians. They just don't want to see Bruce being henpecked one more time for the cameras.

They're Non Talented

Not everyone will like every actor, singer, or writer simply because he's talented. Most famous people have achieved their millions and fame because they're actually talented. This is what got them the respect of the industry, and won them their legions of fans. Then reality TV happened and talent took a back seat to absolute idiocy. Talent has become a secondary standard for fame and fortune these days, and all the Kardashians are proof of that.

A lot of people don't like the Kardashians because they are the most talentless bunch the world has ever seen. Not one of them can sing, dance, write, read, or even turn around in circles with their eyes closed. THEY HAVE NO SKILLS OR TALENTS at all! Millions of people wonder how are they so famous. Is the world really this desperate for a pretty face that it doesn't matter about talent anymore.

The number one reason people don't keep up with the Kardshians is because they have no talent. People just can't find a justifiable reason to patronize such talentless women. For 8 years these women have been on every communicative platform there is,and the only thing they can do is stand around like mannequins with fake smiles. At first, their non talent wasn't an issue because people thought that eventually someone would let their light shine. But that hasn't happened yet, and at this point there's no reason to think that it ever would. There's no way it ever can since they have no talent. Most people can't with clear conscience justify support non talented individuals. They just find the Kardashian circus ridiculous and outrageous.

They Never Take a Break

Since day one of the Kardashian roller coaster ride, the Kardashians have managed to keep themselves in the spotlight in some sort of way for the past 8 Years. This is 8 years of constant bombardment by the Kardashian clan. It never stops! It never ends! You will find that they have invaded every aspect of media that's possible. They have saturated every kind of media from commercials to tweets. This is the problem. People are simply just worn out on all things Kardashian.

Usually, when a person acquires fame, they do give their fans a break. The reason for this is to not overwhelm or wear them out. They don't want to make their fans tired of them. When this happens that star loses fans. The Kardashians do not follow that example at all. They spend an exorbitant amount of time and resources to stay in the limelight. But they really don't have anything to offer fans other than vapid poses and product endorsements. A lot of people have tired of the women being in the spotlight all the time. There's no escape. So what a lot of folks have done is to just tune them out altogether.

They have done this to stop being overwhelmed with all things Kardashian. Ignoring everything about them is the only way for these people to get relief from this family. Even though it's impossible to not see some media on the family on a daily basis. Some people just do their best to ignore it. The overexposure that the Kardashians rely on is the same thing that's driving millions of their fans away. People are just tired of never having a break from all the things the Kardashians do.

Sigh! Another Day of Picture Taking.

Whether or not you like the Kardashians, the one thing that has to be admitted is that they are a force to reckon with. They are masters at keeping themselves in the spotlight. Even this skill of their constant presences in all forms of media has helped their fame and fortunes. This is probably the thing that's going to bring their downfall if they don't utilize some perspective. What they will do after all the interest in them dies. They haven't exactly invested any of their connections or money into developing any talent. With all the money they have made I guess they don't have to. But at some point, everyone will get tired of Keeping up with the Kardashians.

      I'd like to meet and shake the hand of the person responsible of turning these useless, artificial, fake, worthless people into "stars"...Regarding the "title" of this useless fiasco - "Keeping Up with the ..." why would you want to do as these useless, idiotic people? When you can create a real life for yourself, your family and your friends?

      Thank you hearts and lattes. I agree with everything you have said. If Kim had talent or spent a little time developing some she probably wouldn't be so annoying. I hope that one day Kris Jenner will wake up and realize what she had done to her family. I feel the most sorry for Bruce. I do feel that he's been ruined by Kris and Kardashian publicity machine. Maybe these people will decide to fade into the background and just live their lives. They're too overexposed. I remember one time they actually showed Kourtney urinating while having a conversation with Khloe. No one needed to see that. It is time for them all to just let it go.

      I just loved this hub. My opinions: Just as you said, mother hen Jenner does not let her chicks stand idly by because she wants her paychecks to keep rolling in.

      Lord, I remember when she almost pushed Kim through the door of Hugh Hefner's office to pose for Playboy. Then she had Kendall posing in those swimsuits before her time.

      And now poor Bruce, what happened to him? Since the divorce he has just been seen in long girly hair and weird outfits. Kris Jenner ruined the man!

      And Kim. All that plastic surgery. She doesn't even look like a white lady anymore. She has those alien eyes and implants popping out everywhere.

      I like your writing style. Everyone like a little Hollywood gossip!
