Lambos and Love

The Kardashians are back (after their ten month break) and better than ever. If you don’t know who this family is, you either are a boomer or you live under a huge, huge rock.

This family landed their first reality TV show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” in October of 2007. This show, somehow, went on for almost 15 years, ending in 2021. People adored seeing how this boujee family lived. Their lives were filled with love triangles, expensive clothing, drama, wealth, and more drama.

The show focused around the three Kardashian sisters and their “momager” Kris. Kim (the most famous out of the three), Khloe, and Kourtney took the world by storm. They also had two half sisters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

They wrapped up their show just last year, and the world thought that this may be the last of the on screen KarJenner family. Their new show was announced not long after.

Momager Kris said that all five of her daughters were signed on for the show. Hulu recently dropped the first two episodes of “The Kardashians: Hulu” (pretty creative title if you ask me) for the world to see the infamous family’s new beginning.

You may be asking, “how is this any different from ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’?” Here’s the kicker – I have no clue. Other than being portrayed as more personable and “real,” this show is just another round of family drama and luxurious lifestyles. You would think after over a decade of filming their original show that they would have had enough of the spotlight.

Part of me is more concerned about their dedicated fans. After nearly 15 years of season after season, they are consistently tuning in. I mean seriously, I don’t think a single season of that show ever flopped in any way, shape, or form. How did this family manage to stay relevant for so long?

The trailer portrays this family on a more personal level. It tells the audience about what they already knew, and what they’re about to learn about the A-List Kardashian family.

Right off the bat in the first episode, we get a cheesy montage intro of all of the family members, except everyone drives a Lamborghini. There are chatters of a “clean slate” and how they’re “so excited to be back.”

I’m still not getting the whole “clean slate” thing when their first episode brings back Kim’s biggest misconduct. The Kardashians aren’t the Kardashians without a scandal, right? Within the first 20 minutes, we’re introduced to our first scandal of the entire show, which I think may be too inappropriate to say.

They let us in on all of their drama and age-gapped boyfriends, including their family drama with ex-husbands and ex-boyfriends.

Needless to say, I really can’t tell the difference between their original show, KUWTK, and this one. If you weren’t a fan of their first show, you probably won’t be a fan of this one. It follows their life and their drama, just as it did before.

If you ARE a fan of this family, consider yourself lucky. Three episodes are out now on Hulu, with many more to come.
