Keeping Up With The Kardashians: Kim Kardashian copes with Kanye West AND Khloe sick with COVID-19


Kim Kardashian self-recorded the COVID-19 pandemic onset as Kanye West and her sister Khloe both tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday’s episode of KUWTK.

The season 19 episode titled ‘Things Fall Apart: COVID-19’ opened with Kim, 40, and Scott Disick, 37, discussing the declaration of a state of emergency by California Governor Gavin Newsom on March 4 in response to novel coronavirus infections.

‘This is really wild. Have they said how long, or they’re not giving that?,’ Scott wondered.

‘They said for one month,’ Kim replied.

Kim in a confessional said that all her work ‘left and right’ was getting canceled.

‘It is now labeled as a global pandemic and it is really real and really scary,’ Kim said.

She was then shown resuming talking to Scott about Khloe, 36, being ‘really sick in bed right now’.

Scott revealed that he sends Khloe black-and-white cookies every time she’s sick and Kim shared how her daughter North, seven, refused to give a bite of her apple citing ‘Corona’ with a finger wag.

Khloe received a house call from family physician Doctor Boris Vaisman after getting a sore throat and feeling achy with Kim there for support.

‘Yesterday, I started feeling sick. And today I’m feeling worse and worse, and just as a precautionary, I really wanted to call Dr. Boris. He’s offered to give me a test for coronavirus. I am hoping that it’s nothing more than just a flu. But with all of the talks of Corona just starting to spread, I have to be smart and responsible and take the test,’ Khloe said in a confessional.

The doctor swabbed her nose and warned of a ‘little tickle’.

‘I don’t like that,’ Khloe said as she recoiled from the swabbing.

The doctor told Khloe he didn’t think it was coronavirus because she hadn’t been traveling, but promised definite results in a few days.

Feeling worse: 'Yesterday, I started feeling sick. And today I'm feeling worse and worse, and just as a precautionary, I really wanted to call Dr. Boris.

Khloe asked what she should do with her two-year-old daughter True and she was advised to self-quarantine in her room.

She decided to isolate and hoped that True’s father Tristan Thompson, 29, could take care of their daughter.

The doctor and Kim then left Khloe to quarantine until her test result came back.

Kim at her home offered her mother Kris Jenner, 64, and half-sister Kendall Jenner, 24, a ‘medicine tea ball’ while they were catching up.

Kris said ‘everybody at our offices’ had started working at home to keep the virus from spreading as Kendall shared that she tested negative for coronavirus.

Kim and husband Kanye, 43, also had been tested, but were awaiting their results.

‘Kanye’s quarantined in there and he hasn’t eaten since yesterday at 2 o’clock,’ Kim said.

The mother of four said Kanye had been in their bedroom isolating after getting tested two days earlier upon his return from Wyoming.

‘I won’t let him leave. I literally put a tray and, like, kick it with my toes,’ Kim said.

Kendall asked where else Kanye had been and Kim said before Wyoming that he was with her in Paris.

‘I think he just has the flu. He just hasn’t been sick in, like, six years,’ Kim told her sister and mother.

In a confessional, Kim noted that both Khloe and Kanye were sick, but she didn’t believe it was coronavirus because it’s ‘so rare that I just don’t think that’s it’.

Kim said that she heard a ’30-day lockdown’ might be imposed and Kendall wondered if they would get a warning.

‘The thought of it sounds really scary. I mean, I think in your mind, when you think of lockdown, you think of, like, literal police officers and, like, guard enforcement outside on the streets not letting you go for a walk. So, I mean, I don’t know what that means. We’ll see, I guess,’ Kendall said in a confessional.

Kim floated the idea of everyone going to Wyoming, but Kris said she had to stay to be around her 86-year-old mother Mary Jo ‘MJ’ Campbell.

Lockdown talk: 'The thought of it sounds really scary.

‘A full lockdown? Something like this has never really happened in our lifetime, our parents’ lifetime, not even my grandparents’ lifetime. So every crazy thought goes through your mind. It scares the s*** out of me,’ Kim admittted in a confessional.

The episode then revealed that the KUWTK film crew on March 13 decided to suspend filming at the family’s homes ‘out of an abundance of caution’.

Kim was shown on speakerphone with KUWTK producer Amanda as she set up lighting and cameras in her home.

‘At this, you know, beginning phase, I want to make sure that everyone is healthy and safe, and we are completely staying away from everybody. We’re self-shooting everything. We’re documenting it, so that we can have this for you guys,’ Kim said in a confessional.

Khloe while quarantining called Tristan to wish him a happy birthday as he took care of True at his home.

She shared that Tristan had been bringing her breakfast, lunch and dinner and leaving the meals on a tray outside her door.

Kris was sad that she couldn’t take care of Khloe out of fear she might infect MJ later.

Kim and her four-year-old son Saint went on a walk to see Kris and she used a selfie stick to record it.

She said in a confessional that Kanye was still quarantined in their master bedroom.

‘I think it’s just really overwhelming because every last task is my responsibility and it’s really hard to juggle it all with four kids. But this is the first time that I’ve really had to do everything myself,’ she added.

Kim and Saint maintained six-feet social distance from Kris who was missing hand sanitizer afer her daughter pilfered a bottle from her house.

Kourtney Kardashian, 41, also engaged in ‘social distancing’ by not seeing anyone except for her three children, Mason, Penelope and Reign.

From a sex tape to the top of rich lists: How the Kardashians turned a reality show into a money-spinning billion dollar family empire that spans social media, lip kits and shape wear

Keeping Up With The Kardashians was a ratings winner right out of the gate when it premiered in October 2007 on cable network E!.

It had been pitched by mom-of-six Kris Jenner to  TV host and producer Ryan Seacrest who was looking to bring a fly-on-the-wall show to E! following the huge success of MTV’s The Osbournes that ran from 2002 to 2005.

Kris persuaded him that she and her children – three daughters and a son with former O.J. Simpson defense attorney Robert Kardashian and two daughters with Olympic decathlete Bruce Jenner – would be a perfect fit.

A few months before the first episode was set to air, a sex tape featuring Kris’ daughter Kim Kardashian was leaked, generating headlines and interest in the 27-year-old.

She had made the tape in 2002 with then boyfriend Ray J but the timing of its release five years later couldn’t have been better timed. 

The publicity surrounding the sex tape considerably raised Kim’s public profile; until then she was best known for being an assistant to Simple Life star and hotel heiress Paris Hilton.

The E! series made global stars of Kim and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian as well as her half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner. 

In the past 13 years, they have grown up on camera, sharing their life and loves, heartache and happiness, their changing faces and changing bodies, and the births of their own children.

More than that, though, they have taken TV fame and spun it into a huge money-making empire, with a lot of help from social media and some very clever marketing.

They mastered the art of keeping hundreds of millions of Twitter and Instagram users engaged with multiple posts a day and then found ways to make money from it.

They used their platforms to sell everything from makeup and perfume to waist trainers and underwear, while also striking lucrative endorsement deals and signing up for high-paid public appearances.  

Throughout it all, Kris has managed her children’s careers, taking 10 percent of their earnings in addition to her own fees from the TV show and its spin-offs.

While KUWTK may be coming to an end after 20 seasons, there’s no doubt we haven’t heard the last of the momager, her kids and grandkids. 

Kylie Jenner – KUWTK made her a billionaire (well, almost) 

She is the youngest of Kris Jenner’s six children but she’s also now the richest.

Kylie, 23, made the cover of Forbes magazine in 2019 as the ‘the world’s youngest self-made billionaire’ after she sold 51 percent of her Kylie Cosmetics company to beauty giant Coty in a deal valued at $1.2 billion.

Forbes subsequently retracted the ‘billionaire’ title reckoning that, in reality, she was only worth an estimated $900 million.

Kylie’s personal wealth came thanks mainly to her decision to start getting lip fillers when she was 18. And while she initially denied getting enhancements, she later acknowledged it and launched a collection of lip kits in 2015.

The following year, due to the tremendous success of her initial products, she launched Kylie Cosmetics. 

Kylie has also partnered with sister Kendall in a clothing line, founded her own skincare line, Kylie Skin, and released her own fragrance through half-sister Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty.  

Kim Kardashian – Game app, shapewear and beauty products add up to $900 million

It can certainly be argued that without her sex tape, she and her family might never have achieved unimaginable wealth.

But while Kim Kardashian Superstar raised her profile, Kim, 39, made sure to capitalize on every opportunity that came her way subsequently.

Unquestionably the star of her family’s reality show, her televised 2011 wedding to NBA pro Kris Humphries was a ratings blockbuster. Her divorce and subsequent marriage to rapper Kanye West kept fans fascinated by her private life.

Forbes estimates Kim’s fortune to be $900 million.

In 2014, she launched mobile game app Kim Kardashian: Hollywood and it made $1.6 million in the first five days after its release. In 2015, she released her own range of Kimojis.

In addition to her TV fees, paid endorsements and appearances, the bulk of Kim’s wealth comes thanks to her KKW Beauty company. 

In 2019, the Product line raked in $100 million and she gained $200 million by selling a 20 percent stake in the company to Coty, the same company that bought Kylie’s brand. 

Her SKIMS shapewear launched last year is also a huge revenue generator and she can earn up to $1 million for a paid Instagram post. 

Kris Jenner – the momager takes her cut to the tune of $90 million (at the very least) 

As her daughters' manager, Kris, 64, get a 10 percent cut of each of their earnings

Kris, 64, is the mastermind behind everything Kardashian, and that’s how she makes her fortune.

In 2018, Forbes reckoned her net worth to be $37.5 million but it’s certainly grown plenty since then with some placing her true net worth at somewhere between $90 and $140 million.

The bulk of her income comes from her 10 percent fees as the manager of her children’s careers.

She also has stakes in some of her kids’ companies; for example, when Kylie sold her cosmetics company in 2019, Kris pocketed $60 million from the deal, Forbes reported.

Khloe Kardashian – denim and workouts bring her an estimated $50 million

Khloe, 36, has carved out her own niche in the Kardashian family marketplace.

She is perhaps the sister who has most transformed their look in recent years, almost to the point of being unrecognizable.

Her fitness regimen in the wake of her divorce from Lamar Odom helped land her her own TV show Revenge Body, and she also hosted the TV chat show Kocktails With Khloe.

In 2016, she founded Good American, which began with a line of jeans and has since expanded to include bodysuits, activewear and swimwear. 

Kourtney Kardashian – lifestyle website helps Poosh her earnings to upwards of $35 million

Kourtney, 41, the eldest of the Kardashian siblings, is most reliant on the TV show for her income.

However, like her sisters, she makes money with paid product endorsements and paid Instagram posts.

In 2017 she partnered with fashion retailer Pretty Little Thing.

Then last year, Kourtney launched her lifestyle website Poosh where companies can sell their products directly to consumers attracted to Kourtney’s brand.  

Kendall Jenner – modeling career enhanced TV fame for $30 million net worth

Kendall, 24, turned her attention several years ago to trying to fulfill her dream of becoming a fashion model.

Thanks to her TV and social media celebrity, she won contracts with some of the world’s top brands making her the highest-paid model of 2018, according to Forbes.

Forbes estimated her net worth at $22.5 million but it’s only increased since then.

She has also teamed up with younger sister Kylie for clothing, jewelry and swimwear lines and like the rest of her sisters, she gets plenty of paid endorsement work.

Rob Kardashian – sporadic TV appearances net him $10 million

Rob, 33, is the only boy in the family of girls and has played a much more low-key role in the KUWTK world.

Initially featuring on the reality show, he subsequently retreated from the spotlight as he battled a number of health issues.

He had his won sock company Arthur George and in 2016, he agreed to star in a spin-off Rob & Chyna, that followed his relationship with fiancee Blac Chyna and the birth of their daughter Dream.

His estimated $10 million net worth comes mostly from his TV appearance fees.
