You’d need to be a naïve and delicate little soul to believe Keeping Up With The Kardashians isn’t contrived as hell. (Awesome? Yes. Scenes created for our entertainment? HELLS YES.)
Heck, Kim even boasted they have total control of the editing, telling Piers Morgan: "From the start, they’ve always said we have, you know, the right to edit and to approve all footage."
But even though we know it’s manufactured, it hasn’t stopped us feeling a little miffed when we discovered these particular doozies.
(There’s a ton of ‘kontinuity errors’ online, FYI. You can check them out here. But these were the ~konspiracies~ that hurt us the most...)
1. THAT TIME KIM AND KRIS FAKED THAT THEY WERE IN DUBAI… AND STAGED A CONVO ABOUT KRIS HUMPHRIES
This was optimum ‘wool over our eyes’ type crap. Kim and Kris staged a conversation in a car, supposedly when they were in Dubai before Kim broke up with Kris Humphries. Only, they weren’t in Dubai. They were in a studio AFTER Kim had broken up with Humphries.
You might remember public backlash against Kim was at an all-time high following her ‘sham’ marriage to Humphries which lasted a grand total of 72 days. This scene was presumably filmed in a bid to paint Kim in a more sympathetic light. They pretended it was in a car during their Dubai trip (blacked out windows in the car, obvs.) However, they were totally busted when they were spotted coming out the studio with the clothes they wore for the scene.
2. THAT TIME KIM WAS WEARING AN ENGAGEMENT RING...BEFORE KANYE WEST PROPOSED ON THE SHOW
We all remember the beauty and wonder that was Kanye’s proposal to Kim. Yeah, she was totes engaged before it happened on the show. Surprise! There were scenes where she was wearing her engagement ring BEFORE the proposal. Duped!
3. OH, AND KRIS HUMPHRIES ALSO CLAIMS HIS PROPOSAL TO KIM HAD TO BE REDONE BECAUSE SHE DIDN’T LIKE HOW SHE LOOKED
4. (THIS ONE PAINS US…) KIM’S MELTDOWN AFTER KRIS AND KHLOÉ TOILET PAPERED HER HOUSE WAS APPARENTLY FAKE
We’re just going to pretend this isn’t true.
5. THE BEST SCENE EVER IS ALSO A FAKE AND WHY?!
The 75k diamond earring fiasco? Apparently totally staged. WHAT EVEN IS LIFE?
6. THAT TIME KRIS, KYLIE, SCOTT DISICK AND FRENCH MONTANA TOTALLY PRETENDED TO HAVE FOMO
Lord Disick is in on the duping too. :( When the entire fam bam minus Kris, Kylie and Scott were holidaying in Cuba, Scott had serious FOMO and decided to bring Cuba to Calabasas. So, he and French Montana roll up to Kylie’s pad in a limo, smokin’ cigars and wearing fedoras. The left-behind family members then drive around taking selfies and puffin’ on the cigars. But guess what? This scene was filmed TWENTY DAYS after the Kardashians left Cuba. Pretty sure his FOMO would’ve been gone by the time Kourt had been home for almost 3 weeks but hey.
7. THAT TIME KRIS HAD A FAKE NORTH BABY
This is just a bit weird, TBH. When Kris promoted her FOX talk show with snaps of her holding a bub - which was meant to be Kim's daughter North - it was eventually revealed that the baby was, in fact, a stand in. Dunno whose baby it was though...
