I know I rib the whole Kardashian family pretty constantly, but I never thought I’d see them abandon one of their own like they’re doing to Rob Kardashian right now.
The rumors have suggested for a while that Rob was being iced out until he could lose the weight, but part of me didn’t want to believe that. As crappily as these people have been portrayed on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, I had to believe that they weren’t that superficial when it came to a member of their own family. But Kim‘s wedding to Kanye West was a real eye-opener for me, because ROB DIDN’T GO TO THAT. He showed up, but at some point something happened to make him leave the ceremony and spend that time crying in an airport.
That’s some real shit! Especially since the prevailing theory is that Rob left because he didn’t fit into the suit that Kim provided, the one that matched all the other groomsmen, and she would rather him leave and not be in any of the pictures at all then have her overweight brother mess up her perfect wedding photos.
That was a real wake-up moment for me, and I figured it would be for the family as well — that they’d become aware that their priorities were all messed up. But apparently not, because according to Radar Online, Rob hasn’t spoken to his family since:
“[Rob] has no reason to talk to Kim; they haven’t been on good terms for a very long time. [Kim] hasn’t bothered to even attempt to talk to him since returning from her honeymoon, but Khloé has sent him text messages and left him several voice mails. Rob hasn’t returned any of Khloé’s phone calls or texts. He feels completely estranged from his sisters and family. He really isn’t in a good place.”
Yeah okay, so maybe let’s do something about it? Like get on a plane or something and show up there? It’s not like he’d be hard to find, considering everyone’s reporting that he’s not doing any filming or anything — he’s just holed up in his house.
“Rob made the decision months ago that he didn’t want to have a recurring storyline on the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and drastically cut back on filming.”
The guy couldn’t be more available, so it’s time to suck it up and get down there. I’m mostly talking to you, Kris Jenner. This kid is your son, right? It’s fine to be ‘extremely worried’ about him, but you have to actually do something. (Other than signing him up for another reality show.)
“She knows he isn’t in a good place, and is encouraging her kids to continue to reach out to Rob.”
Oh okay yeah that should do it. Great work everybody.
