‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ — ‘Vulgar Sibling Rivalry’ Vanishes As Babies Take Center Stage [Opinion]

Keeping Up with the Kardashians hasn’t always been easy to do, as watching this show has offered some real jaw-dropping moments in the past. There were a few times that the Kardashian sisters crossed a line that even their most devoted fans were uncomfortable with. Just think about some of the very bizarre, yet fascinating things that you have seen the Kardashian sisters partake in over the years.

If you had to pick just one of their episodes as the most shocking, what would it be? There was one episode, in particular, that was considered rather “vulgar” by media sites and by many at-home viewers as well. This one episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians may have gone just a nose too far. Yes, that is a hint.

Now that the sisters are all tucked in with their love interests and starting families of their own, the antics of yesteryear seemed to have calmed down a bit. Today, it is about babies all around. If the rumors of baby bumps turn out to be correct, there will only be one Kardashian-Jenner sibling who is not a mother, father, or mother-to-be, and that would be Kendall Jenner. But these rumors are what pulls the audience in today, taking the place of yesteryear’s rather risque offerings.

During their latest holiday gathering, Kris gave thanks for the family, according to E! News. She also added, “I used to pray that one of you guys would have a baby and now it’s like a faucet that we turned on and won’t turn off.” This sentence pretty much encompasses what the Kardashian family is all about today, but it wasn’t that long ago that fans were tuning in for that wow-factor regarding what the Kardashian brood was about to do next.

As the Kardashian and Jenner siblings were growing up over the last decade, it seems that their fans grew right along with them as the baby explosion, or rumors of one, have kept the viewers coming back. It is like a new era for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians clan. This year, the Kardashians celebrated their 10th anniversary of the show, so they must be doing something right to have a decade of popularity. From the “vulgar” and “shocking” of yesteryear to diaper changes of today, the Kardashians keep reeling the viewers in.

There was a time when the Kardashian sisters could make you blush at home while watching what they were up to. The jaw-dropping moments through the years were plentiful, like the time one sister gave the other a DIY Brazilian bikini wax. According to TV Insider, when a 9-year-old Kylie hopped on the stripper pole and “made some dance moves well beyond her years,” people took notice. These were the antics that fans counted on and that kept them coming back for more.

One of the most shocking and talked about out of all their escapades is when Kourtney and Kim had a bet about whose undercarriage smelled the best. This isn’t something most sisters talked about in the privacy of their own homes, nevermind on national television. The Kardashian sisters not only talked about the scent their private parts gave off, but they held a contest to settle the argument on who smelled better in an area seldom discussed on TV. Sister Khloe refrained from entering the contest, but she was the judge who actually took a sniff and offered up the results. And yes, this was seen on TV.

As the Daily Mail reported back in 2013 when this contest was seen on their Keeping Up With the Kardashians show, this was way too much information for the masses. The Daily Mail called this “vulgar sibling rivalry” and many agreed with them at the time. Back then, the three sisters were in London at the famous Dorchester Hotel. It started with Khloe sharing her theory that drinking pineapple juice makes everything sweeter. It was Kim who called for the “vagina smell-off” and the contest was on.

Fans wondered how far the sisters would take this contest, and what came next surprised even the most veteran of Kardashian fans. While Khloe didn’t actually put her face in the area where the contest was located, she did smell towels her sisters used to wipe themselves and pick up the scent of their undercarriage. She rated Kourtney’s scent similar to a “tropical island.” But it was Kim who won the contest, and this became one of the most talked about episodes due to the risque content. It is mentioned in most top ten outrageous Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode lists found online.

During the same episode, Khloe purchased some Ben Wa Balls to “tighten things up” down there. Today, baby booties and cute little outfits are the purchases the Kardashian sisters are sharing. Growing up with the Kardashians is a description describing the journey their fans have been on since Keeping Up with the Kardashians first aired.
