Kim Kardashian and Kanye West recently welcomed their new son, Saint West. But although they were thrilled to have a second child to join North West, a Kardashian expert contends that dudes are doomed when it comes to Keeping Up with the Kardashians (KUWTK), reported the Mirror.
Meet Sean Smith, who authored the ultimate guide to Kim Kardashian. He contends that those who are born male, including Caitlyn Jenner, are always underachievers when compared to the Kardashian and Jenner women. That means tiny Saint isn't going to earn his halo as an achiever in KUWTK land.
Although Saint ranks as one of the fortunate few in terms of money and entitlement, those privileges may not compensate for what seems to happen to men in the environment dominated by Kardashian and Jenner women. Dudes tend to fall behind, and the Kardashian biographer cites Rob Kardashian, Scott Disick, Lamar Odom, Kris Humphries, and Caitlyn (who used to be Bruce) Jenner as examples of those who could not keep pace with the Kardashian and Jenner females.
Television critic Kevin O'Sullivan offered his own insights into what it's like being male in the world of the Kardashians.
"These shows are about strong women and weak men revolving around them. That's why the Kardashians are like they are. Stupid men are exposed as idiots by strong women."
For Rob, life with three older sisters proved a challenge. Now 28, Kardashian has sought to stay in hiding recently. And when you add up low self-esteem, weight problems, and a longing to stay well away from the cameras both in terms of filming Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the paparazzi, Rob goes on the list of males in the world of Kardashians who just can't seem to win.
Rob didn't even attend his sister Kim's fabulous and extravagant wedding to Kanye because of the inevitable publicity for his overweight state. He also took a pay cut because of how rarely he appeared on KUWTK.
As the Inquisitr reported, Rob has gained more than 100 pounds and also suffers from depression. To stay away from family contact, Kardashian has even changed his phone number numerous times.
Moreover, the Kardashian family has openly talked about Rob's problems on their show. And while the Kardashian women have all types of entrepreneurial success stories, Rob just has a line of socks.
"Do I think he smokes weed, drinks beer, hangs out and plays video games with his friends all day long? Yes," declared an unsympathetic Kim.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom had a fairy-tale romance, but their wedding was followed by wreckage. Khloe ultimately made the decision to divorce Lamar because of problems ranging from infidelity to substance abuse, including a DUI arrest.
After they had separated, Odom almost died after he was found unconscious in a brothel from an alleged drug overdose. Lamar is still hospitalized, with residual problems ranging from memory loss to challenges walking, as the Inquisitr reported.
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott never wed but they share three children. However, Scott repeatedly showed his bad boy side, including cheating on Kourtney, alcohol abuse, and behaving badly at one of his main passions: parties. He tried rehab a few times, but then had a lengthy binge as well as a fling with a former girlfriend. That spelled the end for Kourtney, who dumped him.
And Scott recently had a shock when he learned that Kardashian and Justin Bieber were enjoying a very hot hook-up, as the Inquisitr noted.
Remember Kris Humphries? Many people don't, because he and Kim spent only about a year together going from meeting to dating to engagement to marriage. They split in 72 days.
Kris most recently resurfaced to get slammed for a comment about the decision Bruce Jenner made to go public with his transformation to Caitlyn Jenner.
"Man, I'm glad I got out when I did," tweeted Kris.
After her gender transformation, Caitlyn revealed that as Bruce Jenner, she suffered at the hands of Kris Jenner. Caitlyn recalled how Kris managed all their money and claimed that Jenner also treated Caitlyn badly.
"A lot of times she wasn't very nice," revealed Caitlyn in recalling the relationship between Bruce and Kris.
However, despite some unhappiness from Kris about those comments, they seem to have gotten a fresh start on their relationship, according to People.
Caitlyn did show up at Kris' Christmas Eve bash, and once revealed that Jenner's Christmas party was the happiest time of the year.
"Probably the biggest tradition I have along with the rest of the family, is Kris – for the last 30 years – her Christmas Eve party is over the top spectacular," praised Caitlyn. "She does such a beautiful job with decorating the house. We've had the same Santa Claus for 25 years."
