I rarely watch anything related to the Kardashians, because their drama off the show is way more interesting than what goes on in front of the cameras. At least that’s what I think.
Every week, it seems like America’s most financially pampered family has some kind of issue brewing behind the scenes. From crappy lip kits, to a certain someone’s husband going off his
meds rocker on social media, conversations about the Kardashian’s seems to be endless. I’m pretty sure it’s that way on purpose.
Their latest drama has me actually agreeing with Miss Kris, because she’s right.
In a clip from an upcoming episode of their highly rated television show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the family is sitting around the table having a family dinner, and it goes from a light hearted conversation to major shade slinging in a hot stinking minute, after Kris’ daughters chastised her for buying her son a house. According to the New York Daily News, the conversation went something like this:
“You should not be paying for your son that is almost 30-years-old to buy a house,” [Kim K] declared, getting quick approval from her sisters: Khloe, Kim and Kylie Jenner.
“Drop him. Cut the cord,” Khloe Kardashian chimed in.
“You guys can judge me all day long. I came here to have a nice dinner, so just everybody relax,” she began.
“All of you can f— off and go think of something else to talk about,” she continued.
She then swiftly reminded her daughters that they were no angels.
What was so deep was that Miss Kris was being nice when she old her kids to “f*ck off.” To remind them that she could do whatever she wanted with her cash, she recalled the countless times she’s seen them go through major issues, and said nothing about it. Including Kim’s 72-day marriage.
Just to be extra shady, she could have brought up Kourtney’s dysfunctional relationship with Scott (if you even want to call it that), or Khloe’s ex-husband being laid up half dead in a brothel, among other things. But she didn’t, because she was trying to keep it classy while letting her kids know that they needed to keep their noses out of her pocket book.
Regardless of what anyone thinks, Kris can do whatever she wants to for her kids, whether she’s feeling generous, or on her death bed (God forbid). One thing I learned from my own mom, who has helped me with bills when I needed it most, is that you never stop taking care of your child. Even if I needed to talk, my mom is there to listen. That’s part of a mother’s job, and Kris seems to be doing it well from what I can see. At least in this instance she is.
Perhaps Kris is buying her son a house because she’s investing in his overall net worth. For all we know, she could be helping him broker some business deals behind the scenes to help him stack his paper, if that’s even an issue.
Or maybe she woke up one day and felt like buying Rob and his pregnant fiancee a modest house for her new grandchild. Who knows? Whatever the case, the bottom line is that she’s doing what any mother with truckloads of money would do for their child, and that’s looking out for him.
I get that Rob should be purchasing his own home, and perhaps another home for his mother too. But that’s not the way things are falling into place for him. Kris knows better than anyone what her child needs, and she also knows better than anyone (and I do mean ANYONE) what it means to be taken advantage of. I say that if she can manage to buy her kid a house, and not have to worry about him financially abusing her, then she should do her thing, and everyone else should mind their business.
Buy that house, girl.
