The Kardashians are here to stay. The newest season of E!’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) just began, marking its 15th season since its debut in 2007. In celebration of the crazy, hilarious family, we’ve put together the most outrageous moments in the show’s history. Remember in season 9, when Kim lost her diamond earring in the ocean and had a complete meltdown? Sister Kourtney snapped back without thinking twice.
If you can’t handle this drama, you should probably just move along. However, if you Kan keep up, read on!
Khloé’s Iconic Car Ride To Jail (Season 4)
Arguably the most insane moment of the series came fairly early on. In the fourth season, sister Khloé was driving to jail because of a DUI. Accompanying her were her mother, Kris, and sisters, Kourtney and Kim. Despite her sister’s predicament, Kim spent the entire car ride taking pictures of herself. Back then, “selfie” wasn’t common slang, but, as always, Kim was ahead of the trend.
One of the show’s most famous quotes comes from this moment: “Kim, can you stop taking pictures of yourself? Your sister’s going to jail.” Kim recently released the photos she took, and they quickly became an internet sensation.
Kris’ Real-Life Face-Lift (Season 6)
When you’re the “Momager“ of the Kardashian-Jenner family, you represent the brand. So when Kris decided to get a face-lift for Kim’s first wedding, we weren’t surprised. But when she decided to document the whole process, it left audiences feeling unsettled.
Just a reminder: this aired in 2011. These days, because of social media and shows like KUWTK, we’re considerably more apathetic to such news. Back then, it was shocking witnessing the whole process. Say what you will about Keeping Up, but it unquestionably broke new television ground! Viewers went on a journey with Kris and her family during the surgery, which was always the point of the show.
Lord Scott Disick (Season 7)
Okay, saying a character on Keeping Up With The Kardashians is controversial is like saying the pope is Catholic. But Scott Disick is one of the most divisive people in the Kardashian-Jenner world, especially after his breakup with Kourtney. On the one hand, he’s an incredibly arrogant alcoholic, serial dater, and liar. On the other, he’s a fantastic dad who loves his family and genuinely wants to get better. He’s also rich and enjoys spending his money a little too much.
So, when he bought a Lord status online and traveled to the UK to get knighted, viewers discovered Scott might be the member of the family least connected to reality. Which is saying quite a lot, when you think about it! God bless, Lord Disick.
Sneaky Scott (Season 14)
The Kardashians are known for their extravagant, over-the-top vacations. Every season the entire family travels to some new, exciting location for a little break. In the 14th season, the family went to beautiful Costa Rica. It was right after Kourtney and Scott’s break-up, and Kourtney was enjoying the single life. However, it was important for her to invite Scott along, as he “was still family” and the father of their three children. Somehow, the three sisters found out Scott secretly snuck his girlfriend along for the trip. After they began to suspect something was amiss, they interrogated him over dinner. Eventually, Khloé couldn’t handle his lies any longer and chucked a glass of water at him and left. She was followed by Kim, then Kris, who both reveled in dousing Scott. So much drama we can’t even handle it anymore!
