The Kardashian family (including the Jenner sisters) have turned into a brand name that few people don’t know about. If it is not for the number of children they have or the number of brands they own, the family is often in the news for the drama they bring into the world.

Just like that, the third season of the reality show, The Kardashians, has come to an end and we have another season with the same old drama. The Kardashians Season 3 picks up months after Kourtney, the oldest Kardashian sister’s marriage to Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker.

The season also narrates Kim’s journey of getting divorced from rapper Kanye West. We also see Khloe’s complicated journey as a single parent to her two children, the process of connecting to her newborn son who was born via surrogate, and her struggle with melanoma – a small possibly cancerous tumour on her face.

There is not much to the Jenner sisters in this season other than the fact that Kendall is excelling in her career as a model and does not want to have children anytime soon. Moreover, Kylie is opening up as her own self and is more appreciative of her inner beauty as she finally comes clean about getting plastic surgery to enhance her breasts.

The show is really not interesting anymore and continues to look like a PR stunt with the five sisters being executive producers of the show. The main drama of this season comes from the Dolce & Gabanna conflict between Kourtney and Kim. Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill because this fight was made into so much more than what it was in reality.

The entire fight was comedy gold with the way the rest of the family members handle the situation and how Kourtney’s one-on-one discussion with Kim was just hilarious. Other than the fact that Kourtney failed to make a valid point, Kim discussing how her sister stole her wedding country was hilarious and showed how much privilege money brings.

Khloe really is one of the most unproblematic sisters on the show and it is sad how her private life keeps getting publicised to create drama for the show. From the fact that she’s having trouble connecting with her child because he was born out of surrogacy, to the fact that this show is actually monetising the drama that is Khloe’s personal life and I feel very bad about her.

Khloe has become the showrunner for the Kardashian family and her life is always put on the spot for entertainment purposes which makes me sad as a longtime viewer of the show. From her relationship struggles to her health issues as well as her struggles with connecting with her own child, all is used for the purpose of generating more hype around the show.

I am upset by the fact that the showrunners did not give much importance to the jaw-dropping comment about Kylie’s breast augmentation surgery. For years the Kardashian family, along with many other celebrities, have lived the life of a lie when they claimed that their bodies are all thanks to working out more, or leading a healthy life.

Fans of the show and humans in general do not have a problem with the family for getting work done on their bodies, but the problem lies in the fact that they have been blatantly lying about it. Kylie’s acknowledgement that she did get surgery on her breast at the age of 18, despite initially denying it in the past, is a step in the right direction.

There is little to no doubt that Kim’s marriage with Kanye was unsuccessful due to multiple reasons. Despite that, Kim continues to claim that she is the new Kourtney and she is closer to Khloe now while Kourtney is happily married and probably a little less connected to her sister.

The fact Kim is now taunting Kourtney for not giving her family enough time when she has recently gotten married and is happy for the first time is hypocritical on Kim’s part. Scott is hilarious on the show and I loved every time he was on screen. It is fun how the rest of the family share a bond with Scott no matter his dynamics with Kourtney.

Kris really needs to stop monetising on personal battles because Tristan’s mother’s death actually did not need to be dramatised on the show. This adds more to the fact that Khloe’s personal issues are being used as the medium of the show to create more drama.

Overall, The Kardashians does not feel organic anymore and the family has finally learned how to monetise on issues that are clearly made up. Many viewers hoped that Kim would address the Balenciaga controversy but the makeup and fashion mogul swerved that one very swiftly while giving too much attention to the fact that she collaborated with Dolce & Gabanna, a brand that her sister recently worked with.

The Hulu show looks like a cookie-cutter and polished version of the E Network reality show and The Kardashians fails to entertain fans like Keeping Up With The Kardashians did.
