Confession: I’m a yogi… and I love the Kardashians.

This article took a tremendous amount of very serious scientific research. Think hours upon hours of watching the Kardashian Klan running flying from LA to Las Vegas, to Armenia and Paris, then back to LA. I sat in a bookstore for an hour studying Kim K’s memoir Selfish front to back, and took many trips to Sephora in an attempt to contour like Kylie Jenner, only to walk out empty handed, because who knew make-up could be that expensive?!

These are just some symptoms of being a Kan (my Kardashian version of Fan). Also…maybe, downloading The Kylie Jenner app for $2.99 a month, and seriously debating if my life would make more sense if I had KIMOJI’S to explain my every day dilemmas to friends. (Note: it wouldn’t.)

At first glance, we all want to agree that The Kardashians bring no real value to anyone’s life, but I like to disagree.

Do we love to hate them, or do we love them, really?

I don’t know about you, but as a Bad Yogi, I am not ashamed to share my affinity with all the members of the Kardashian Klan and these are only a few reasons why.

1.They might come off as superficial, materialistic and unnecessary, but they’re actually really good business women.
There’s no denying that running a clothing, fragrance and jewelry line requires hard work, and add onto that a TV show (of which Kris, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe are co-producers) a few clothing stores across the country and their endorsement gigs… say what you will… running all of that takes business skills. No one racks up (and keeps on growing) a $300 million dollar net worth by making bad business decisions.

2. They understand family and being loyal to those within their circle.
Let’s just say if I was ever in High School with these girls I would never pick a fight with one of them knowing that they have a whole gang of sisters ready to jump me in a back alley… and I don’t doubt Khloe would hold back to punch me in the throat.

Or maybe it’s Kourtney who would punch me.

3. They’re honest and upfront (even if it takes a them a little while to make it public).
In their recent season they discussed Kylie’s obvious lip enhancement, to which Kylie responded that she did not want to talk about it in interviews and was debating whether or not to keep it a secret. Kim stepped in and told her that there is no better way to be than to own up to the obvious. Which is to say that yes, she had her lips done.

4. They do not settle.
Anyone living a lifestyle the way they do is definitely not settling in a material aspect. I mean to be able to afford lavish shopping sprees you need to be dedicated to making $$$, but since we’re all yogis here, let’s put the material aside and talk about their emotional state… they all look like they’re having fun doing what they do. They don’t settle for anything less than laughter and having a great time. They seem to have zero tolerance for bullshit… and isn’t that what we all somewhat strive for?

5. It takes strength, courage and grace to live so openly for the world to see.Have you ever had your heart broken? Have you ever been the center of a really bad joke? Have your parents gone through a divorce and your dad/step-dad gone through a sex-change? These are all real life issues… take those, air them out for the whole world to see and tell me if you’d be able to keep your composure 24/7.

I wouldn’t.

And if any of these reasons fail to bring up a sense of compassion, remember this… it’s un bad-yogi like not to accept others as they are 😉

    They are a guilty pleasure to me. I agree to all those points. I don’t get down with any other reality show but theirs! There must be a reason eh? 😉 #kan

    I’m not a fan, and I’ve never seen the show, but I can understand why so many people love them (or love to hate them) and watch the show! I have seen snippets here and there of the show or their interviews. Just not my cup of tea (or coffee if you will ?). I’d rather watch a reality show around the life of the stars of Aqua! Haha!

    Really good points. There’s too much negativity out there, so why add to it by hating on the Klan? And besides, if I was stuck in an elevator with Kim K herself, I’d probably share the mints at the bottom of my handbag with her, because hey, we’re all people 🙂

    “this is googling Kimoji and cropping to send”…. Thank you for that fit of giggles 🙂

    I totally agree on all of these points. I’m a yogi by day and a kloset kardashian by night. If there were a reality show about yogis, my life would be complete.

    Erin! I agree 100%.
    Despite all the drama they get stuff done and don’t hold back. I remember one episode where Kendall is like 14/15 and decides to make her own lookbook to show her parents. BAM! She’s now on major runways. You can’t do that without support and Konnections. Also, can we get a “whoop whoop” for sisterhood?
