Twenty Fifteen was a tough year for both entrepreneurs and entertainers. Most richest billionaires swapped net-worth positions with others as the world’s economy fluctuated. Likewise for the famous entertaining TV family, the Kardashians and their step family, the Jenners; it was a wavering year as well.
The world got to know the two families through the Television program, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but in 2015, it was more about the Jenners than the Kardashians. The Kardashians did not have a bad year though, but the Jenners had a better year; they are gradually taking over the shine of the famed Kardashian ladies whose shadows the Jenners have stood under for a while now.
Update on the Kardashians: Kim Kardashian gave birth to her second child and first son, Saint West. She was also at the verge of a messy divorce with her third husband, Kanye West, due to alleged infidelity on his part. Khloe Kardashian had a great year getting in shape and posing for the steamy Complex spread, which earned her much praise for her new, tighter physique. For Kourtney Kardashian, after much difficulty trying to split with the drinking, partying, philandering father of her children, Scott Disick, she was is better off without him. Kourtney handled it well though by hanging out with Justin Bieber as a way to bounce back and forget her past.
It’s hard to really say that any of these two families, linked by the opportunist of a mum, Kris Jenner, had a bad year, when the renewal of the contracts of Keeping Up with the Kardashians is reported to be a whooping sum of $100 million, nonetheless the Jenners rocked 2015 with the following reasons.
1. The Birth of Caitlyn Jenner
In mid 2015, the father figure of the family, Olympic Champion, Bruce Jenner, after his divorce with Kris Jenner, came open in an interview as a transgender woman, introducing himself as Caitlyn Jenner. This was a shock to the world, and attracted more attention to the Jenners. Following the 20/20 special, Caitlyn Jenner made her official debut in June issue of Vanity Fair, which made the magazine cover one of the most talked about and iconic photographs in 2015. Caitlyn surely faced some harsh criticism for her transformation, however she also received much praise for her strength and courage. She is now a face for transgender rights and is often described as the most famous openly transgender person in the world.
