‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’: 10 Years of Crazy Car Moments
Ryan Seacrest has been a part of our lives since he stepped onto the American Idol stage in 2002. He’s had plenty of other jobs since then, from radio DJ to the new morning co-host of Kelly Ripa. But quite possibly his most lucrative endeavor was when he formulated the idea to film the Kardashian family in their home as a new non-scripted family sitcom. As a result, Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered on October 14, 2007 on the E! network and has been a pop culture phenomenon ever since.
13 seasons later…
Over the years, there has been a collection of absurd—albeit entertaining—moments on the show, with a few of them happening in or near a vehicle. To truly commemorate the controversial clan, here’s a list of the craziest car moments from KUWTK. *Kourtney voice* It’s literally going to be so entertaining.
Your sister’s going to jail!
The most iconic vehicle moment of the entire series of KUWTK was in season 3, when Khloe is forced to serve jail time for violating her probation. Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, and Kim pile into the back of an SUV; while Khloe is talking to her brother Rob on the phone, Kim is busy taking photos of herself with a digital camera. That’s when Kris delivered the now infamous line, “Kim, would you stop taking pictures of yourself. Your sister’s going to jail.”
Classic cars and Cornelius
In a season 13 episode, the girls take a nostalgic trip to Palm Springs to visit their grandparents’ old home and to shop for a birthday gift for their brother Rob. Because their grandparents used to drive an old Cadillac, Kourtney thought it’d be a great idea to rent a classic Chevy Bel-Air to ride around town in. Apparently, Kourtney had never heard of the vehicle but thought it was “super cute.” It turns out that she wasn’t completely sure how to drive it once she was behind the wheel. Bonus moment: While shopping for Rob’s birthday gift, Khloe mentions that she ran into Rob’s childhood imaginary friend named Cornelius. (No, we’re not making this up.)
Hello, mother f–ker!
During a trip to Napa, California, for some wine tasting, matriarch Kris got a little bit tipsy and everything turned hilarious afterwards. It all started when Kris started stumbling back to the car, trying to find her sunglasses that were very obviously on Khloe’s face. While Khloe is facetiming with singer French Montana, Kris shouts, “Hello, mother f–cker!” to him and proceeds to cause a ruckus inside the vehicle, including getting hyped up about walkie talkies.
I don’t have my seatbelt on!
The Kardashian clan was vacationing in Montana in a season 10 episode that left the whole family startled. Khloe lost control of the vehicle she was driving, with Kylie in the passenger seat and Kim and her daughter North in the back. The roads were incredibly slippery due to snow and ice, which Khloe even mentioned while driving the large SUV. It was definitely a scary moment, but thankfully everyone was okay after the whole ordeal was over.
Quit following my family!
Preceding her 16th birthday, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner family, Kylie, was driving with her father Caitlyn, when she noticed some paparazzi following close behind her vehicle. Angered by Kylie expressing fear over driving because of these paps, Caitlyn asked Kylie to pull the vehicle over. Once they were off the highway, Caitlyn got out and proceeded to flip off the photogs and yell at them to stop following her family. It was an intense moment that showed just how crazy some paparazzi are when it comes to getting that perfect, money-making photo.
