The Kardashians are one of the most famous families on the planet, but are they as famous as the British Royal Family?
It depends on who you ask...but Caitlyn Jenner says her family is similar to the Royals in the fame category.
Caitlyn made the comparison while on the British reality television series 'I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!' where she asked, “Do you think the Queen watches this show? This is a big show in U.K. I wonder if the royal family is watching?”
Then, she mentioned how famous her family actually is, saying, “in some way, I’m part of the royal family of entertainment. One royal family meets the other royal family, you know.”
We Are Royalty...
Jenner's co-stars were interested in her analogy and one person asked how she would feel if her daughter, Kylie, married into the royal family. She answered the cosmetics mogul may have some issues getting used to the Royal life.
“Well, she would have to give up everything to do that. They don’t even allow them to get on social, well, maybe they do now, but they didn’t allow them to get on social media.” Caitlyn said.
She added, “My kids wouldn’t know what to do if they didn’t have social media.”
Twitter didn't agree with Caitlyn's comparison to the Royals, in fact a few people were outright pissed.
Twitter Goes Nuts!
"Let me get this straight: one shot to fame because of a leaked sex tape, one was married to an attorney who defended her BFF’s alleged killer. I won’t go into detail about the rest. Nah, they’re not America’s royalty - they’re kinda trashy," one person said.
Another reacted, "Nothing “royal” about them."
A few people really let the family have it, one person even said, "I loathe the Kardashians. They are not anything close to royalty. They are an example of what is wrong with this country. #uselessfamily"
It's not the first time the family has dealt with criticism, but it feels like the Royal comparison really struck a nerve with some people.
"I would pay money to never have to see this ground of horrible, tacky people who clearly overvalue their self-importance," someone wrote.
But, let's be honest, they are all very successful. The fact can't be ignored that the family is at the top of the television, fashion, and cosmetics worlds.
Caitlyn Jenner Spills The Tea On Family
Caitlyn Jenner revealed several other bits of family drama while on the reality show. One of which was her current relationship with daughter stepdaughter Khloe Kardashian.
Jenner claims Khloé and her haven't spoken in about five or six years. The revelation came on the latest episode of the reality show, 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here' and she says the trouble started when she told Khloe she was transitioning.
Caitlyn said most of the family supported her decision, but she hit a snag while explaining the situation to Khloé. She was allegedly "pissed off" about Caitlyn's situation and had "issues" with it.
“I went through every kid and Khloé for some reason was pissed off about something through this whole process, it’s been five or six years and I really haven’t talked to her since," she said on the show.
Kylie Spends $400K A-Month On Security?!
Caitlyn also told fellow contestants just how expensive it can be for her and her family to protect themselves. Specifically, how much Kylie Jenner spends on security.
“I bet you Kylie will spend anywhere between [$300,000] and $400,000 a month," she said.
It is a "ton of money," Caitlyn added.
To fully understand how much money that is...Kylie spends over $13,000 a day in security. But, the good news for the 21-year-old cosmetics mogul is she just finished selling the controlling interest in her company for $600 Million.
Caitlyn admitted on the show“it’s sad” that the family has to deal with this sort of issue but said, “They’re used to it. They’ve been doing it forever,” said Jenner.
