'KUWTK' Is Ending After 20 LONG Seasons, And I Think We All Agree It Feels Like The End Of An Era
E!

The Kardashian-Jenner clan has been blessing our screens and building an empire for over a decade, with 19 (going on 20) seasons of the hit show, plus countless spin-offs.

We have followed them from mid-tier interest to wild success, through babies and relationship drama. We were there for the countless fights with Lord Disick and, not to call anyone out, but the marriage that lasted 72 days.

Now, the family has released a joint statement with E! announcing the show will come to an end.


So many iconic pop culture moments have come from the Kardashian's show.

They are commonly known as being famous for simply being famous. We all know about the connections and doors that led the Kardashian-Jenners to where they are today. We got to watch these women build an empire based on a sex tape and a famous lawyer father. Also, remember when Kim was Paris Hilton's assistant? The mid-2000s are known for a specific fashion sense and aesthetic, and the Kardashians embodied that trend in their early seasons.

However, as the Kardashian empire grew, so did their influence — they went from trend-followers to trendsetters.

We watched Kylie and Kendall go from grade school kids to models and business moguls. Whether you think they're talented or not, you have to admit they are very entertaining. From big dramatic fights to the luxurious lifestyle you can't help but get sucked into, 'KUWTK' had it all.

Kourtney Kardashian became a pop culture icon just for her straightforward, and sometimes slightly harsh, comments. She not only delivers verbal beat-downs to her sisters but sometimes physical ones, too. The other sisters are also known for their multi-faceted careers, but the family is most collectively known for their TV, and tabloid, portrayal.

Kim crying over her diamond earrings, Khloe's cookie jar, and the overall relationship drama has allowed the lives of the extended Kardashian clan to set a bar for reality TV.

The show followed the family so closely, allowing us to be a part of their journey and crazy lifestyle. The end of it marks the end of our intimate knowledge of their crazy lives, no matter how much of it was real or not. We know the show to be both explosive and hilarious, but it truly paved the way for modern reality TV.

There will be much speculation on the reason for the cancellation.

Maybe it's to remove themselves from the limelight because of situations in the family, like Kayne West's bipolar disorder. Or, honestly, maybe they're just sick of constantly being followed by cameras. Either way, though, all good things must come to an end. The entire family is both meme and worship-worthy, and overall, iconic. I am sure the Kardashians will continue to make headlines and capitalize on their business and political ventures, but the end of the show is like the end of an era in modern pop-culture.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

35643

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
