Love them or hate them, the Kardashian/Jenners are like the herpes of pop culture: they never fucking go away. You can thank/curse whoever makes the decisions at the E! Network, because another KUWTK spin-off is coming our way this summer. This time, Kylie is getting her own spin-off show called Life of Kylie because I guess rolling your eyes and denying plastic surgery rumors on KUWTK isn’t enough for her anymore and somehow warrants a separate show. We’re not super impressed with the name, mainly because we were hoping for a lip kit pun, but it makes sense that they chose a title as bland as she is. Then again, were they going for a Life of Pi reference? An Oscar-winning book-turned-movie, this bitch is not.
The network said in a statement that the show will follow Kylie as she “navigates her unique life as an entrepreneur, fashion designer, author, television star, style icon and CEO/Founder of Kylie Cosmetics.” You might not like her, but girl has definitely gotten a lot of credits under her belt for someone who still can’t legally drink and has never attended real school. I personally feel like “television star” is a bit pre-emptive since this series is only eight episodes, but okay. And also, “author”? Are they talking about the 2014 dystopian YA novel she “wrote” with Kendall, City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia? Because if so, the standards for being called an “author” are too low. In that case, am I an author because I handwrote a small book in first grade about the time I lost my first tooth? I can guarantee you more people read The Lost Tooth book than Kylie’s book, so I will patiently await my spin-off show.
Kylie called the show a “docu-series” in a tweet, which is really just a fancy word for reality show that may or may not be cancelled after 5 episodes. We’re basically expecting the show to be like her Snapchat stories but filmed on a slightly nicer camera. Hopefully with less whispering. There will probably be lots of lip kits, lots of her creepy dogs, and lots of humping Tyga in a Ferrari. Can’t wait. She also said the last couple years have been an incredible journey, which sounds about right given how much work she’s had done. I mean, the girl has come a long way:
In case you’re wondering, this will be the EIGHTH spinoff of Keeping Up. E! might be trying to compensate for Rob & Chyna, which obviously won’t be getting a second season, unless they want to do a True Crime series about what really happened when Chyna stole Rob’s Eggos, which actually sounds amazing as I’m typing it. Either way Kylie will definitely be pleased with herself. I mean, more pleased with herself than she is on a normal basis, which is actually kind of a difficult accomplisment.
At this point, Kendall will be the only sister who hasn’t starred in a spinoff, which means this will be the first time Kylie has ever had something that Kendall doesn’t. It’s okay, she stays busy, you know, walking in Paris fashion week, being on the cover of Vogue, and solving police violence through the power of Pepsi. She’ll be fine.
