Let’s Try To Recap Everything the Kardashian Family Did This Year

Courtney Enlow

The Kardashians are the gift that keeps on giving, and this year was no different. This was the year the Kardashians finally started to make the shift from prevalence to relevance, with Kim on the cover of Vogue and Kendall Jenner an in-demand model. But, even as they gain respect, they never lose their sense of drama.

Here are the Kardashian moments that made 2014, as every year, the year of the Kardashian.

The Vogue cover

Kim broke the internet long before #BreakTheInternet. Their cover of April’s Vogue had pearls clutched and jaws dropped. A big deal was made of the usually classy mag’s choice to put a reality television star on its cover, despite the fact she’s a famous millionaire and that’s how magazine covers work.

Wintour later admitted that they got the cover, GASP, for attention: “I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people do talk about us.”

Bruce. Just Bruce in general.

A lot has been made this year regarding whether or not Bruce is transitioning, if he’s in the process of identifying as female, largely due to his plastic surgery work making him look more feminine. We don’t know if it’s true or not. It’s not our business. But either way, it’s not something to make fun of or judge—it’s not fair to the trans community or to Bruce himself. So, just leave Bruce alone.

The wedding

In May, the royal wedding of our time took place in Florence (but not before a pre-wedding dinner at Versailles featuring caviar, champagne, Lana Del Rey, and a freakin’ magic show). The two have now been married for seven months—that’s nearly three Kris Humphries marriages.

Oh, Rob.

This year, Rob stopped appearing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, he bolted from Kim’s wedding before it happened and he didn’t accompany the family on a big Thailand vacay. Of course, tabloid speculation was cruel, saying Kim kicked Rob out of her wedding for being too fat. We’re not sure what’s going on, but we wish him well. Hang in there, Rob!

The wedding photo ‘shop job

Kanye and Kim take photography very seriously. And if Annie Leibovitz backs out of being your wedding photographer, they’re going to kick that seriously up a notch to super duper seriously.

“Because Annie pulled out, I was like, ‘Okay, I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz,’ and we sat there and worked on that photo for, like, four days because the flowers were off-color,” Kanye said at a Cannes Lions panel. “Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who’s the No. 1 person on Instagram, ‘We need to work on the color of the flower wall,’ or the idea that it’s a Givenchy dress, and it’s not about the name Givenchy, it’s about the talent that is Riccardo Tisci — and how important Kim is to the Internet.”

And here it is. This took four days to Photoshop. Four days of a honeymoon. I realize their lives aren’t like ours and they don’t get a week off from their office jobs and then need to head back to work, but still! It’s your honeymoon!

The Jenner-Kardashian family’s Lannister-esque moments

So, ew. First, in a July episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Brody walked in on Kim doing a sexy photoshoot for Kanye. His brother Brandon started teasing him, “You got a little turned on by your sister.” To which Brody responded, “Maybe just a half chub.”

Then, in the next episode, to get the focus off him, Brody through Brandon under the bus and said he and Kim “kissed back in the day.” The lesson of all of this: love your family as a friend.
