The incredibly popular reality TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians first hit our screens in 2007, and since then, the family has gone on to achieve what many would only dream of, with some even achieving billionaire status. In fact, the show has become so popular, that it has become one of E! Network’s most successful shows of all time, raking in serious amounts of money for both the network and the family.
One particular Kardashian family member that many fans adore is Kylie Jenner, who they have seen grow from a young playful child to a highly successful and mature young woman, who is also a mother herself to two adorable children.
Many fans have come to admire the lavish lifestyle that she showcases online, which shows a peek at the finer side of life. However, does the reality tv star enjoy fame, or would she prefer to stay out of the spotlight?
Kylie Jenner’s Success Is Inarguable
According to Forbes, Kylie Jenner’s net worth is $900 million dollars. Of course, much of her net worth has come from her highly successful career starring on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, with the star reportedly being paid $500,000 an episode, according to Pop Buzz. This means that the star is likely earning millions per season, a staggering amount when you calculate the total figure.
However, this isn’t her only source of income. Jenner also owns her own cosmetics line Kylie Cosmetics, which notoriously became known for its famous ‘lip-kit’ when the brand first launched in 2014. The star also owns a clothing line with her sister, which she presumably still has somewhat of input in, despite her heavy involvement with her cosmetics company.
Many of Kylie’s friends also rake in some serious cash. One friend, Harry Hudson, who has appeared several times on her social media accounts, has a reported net worth of $1 million. It is reported one of her close friends Anastasia Karanikolaou also has a similar net worth.
How Does Kylie Jenner Really Feel About Being Famous?
Despite all the fame and fortune, it seems not all the Kardashian family may enjoy fame in the same way some other family members do. So, how does Kylie Jenner really feel about being famous?
Whilst filming Life Of Kylie, the reality TV star opened up to the cameras on a more personal level to share her feelings about fame, and how she feels as though it has affected her. In one episode she explained how she feels like an ‘outcast’ because she ‘can’t relate to a lot of people’, although she wasn’t specific in what sense.https://www.youtube.com/embed/vgYION1-spI
In another episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim is seen asking Kylie about her anxiety, questioning if it makes her feel overwhelmed a lot of the time, and it appears that Kylie may not really enjoy fame as much as it seems. The star responds by saying:
“Some people are born for this life and some people aren’t. And I just know I’m not supposed to be famous – like I can feel it deep down inside. I can’t handle it, I care too much.”
The star has also opened up in the past about other insecurities that she’s faced regarding her appearance, in particular her lips. Many fans will know Kylie for her famous lip kit, giving her the amplified appearance of full and plump lips, however, the inspiration behind the brand in fact stemmed actually from her insecurities about her lips.
As she grew older, many fans began to question the change in her lip size, which led to her admitting she had in fact had lip fillers. As well as the pressures of being in the public eye, Kylie has also received a harsh comment about her lips from a boy when she was much younger, which consequently led to the star feeling rather insecure about her appearance.
How Do The Other Kardashians Feel About Fame?
Now we know Kylie isn’t a big fan of fame, how do the other Kardashian Jenner sisters feel about being in the spotlight?
Whilst Kourtney echoed similar sentiments to Kylie about being famous, Kim appeared to show a different opinion towards life in the spotlight. In the same episode as previously mentioned, Kim was seen comforting Kylie regarding her anxieties, telling her she used to go through the same struggles when she was younger, and how in fact in only the last few years has she begun to improve and ignore the outside criticism.View this post on InstagramA post shared by Kourtney Video (@kourtneyvideo)
Kim also went on to mention how she felt as though she was made for being famous when the sisters were discussing their feelings on the topic. However, Kourtney, much like her sister Kylie, seems to prefer having more of a low-key, family-orientated life that is away from prying eyes as much as possible, a sentiment that began to bubble to the surface in the final seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Before her rise, to fame, Kim was connected to rapper Ray J, however, they later broke up. It was thanks to the famous video leak with the rapper than helped plunge the family into the world of fame, however, which has arguably brought both positive and negative changes for the Kar-Jenners.
