It would have been one thing if Kendall Jenner got a lavish sweet sixteen party; we’d expect no less considering her family’s wealth. We wouldn’t even be surprised if she appeared on MTV’s My Super Sweet 16 (which is still on the air). But an entire E! special devoted just to this kid? Ridiculous. And the work of Kendall’s momager Kris Jenner.
The latest way that Kris is promoting her two daughters with Bruce Jenner – aside from their modeling contracts and appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians – is to throw Kendall a huge party and have E! air it (and also pay for it?). She’s even roped Kim into the planning; last week Kim tweeted that they were scouting locations for the party. Seeing as Kendall’s birthday is November 3, they don’t have much time. As for entertainment, rumor has it that Kris has approached Kanye West and/or Nicki Minaj to perform. Kanye’s already had a cameo on Kourtney and Kim Take New York, so maybe he’d be amenable to the idea.
What’s ironic is that Kendall seems really down-to-earth. Sure, she’s a model, and there was that soul-crushing moment on the first season of Keeping Up when Kendall and her sister Kylie played around on the stripper pole. But scrolling through her Twitter, she doesn’t seem bratty or even that foulmouthed. The photo she tweeted doesn’t seem like a kid who is expecting a lavish million-dollar celebration.
Can we expect an E! special for every occurrence in the Kardashian-Jenner clan now? Rob Finally Loses the Weight! Bruce Still Looks Like A Lesbian! Kim Gets Divorced! (Yeah, that one’s actually happening.)
At the very least, we’ll get another sweet 16 special: Kylie’s already 14.
