The Kardashian holiday card strikes again! The stars of Keeping Up With the Kardashians are notorious for their annual holiday picture, a visually stunning photographic masterpiece that shows off what matters most to the Kardashian-Jenner clan during the holiday season – themselves. And their obvious wealth. This year, however, there were some notable absences in the photo that have left quite a few people wondering what happened to the menfolk (or rather, what they did to piss off Kris).
Before we get down to the REAL reason behind the dudes’ missing statuses, let’s chat about this card. It’s a little different this year, and instead of an over-the-top glam theme like they’ve done in previous years, there’s a bizarre mix of weird Hollywood meets carnival funhouse, with a dash of science fiction and a healthy dose of pure, unadulterated WTF. The shot features Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kourtney’s kids, Kendall, Kylie, Kris and Bruce, all dressed in black and striking various poses amongst mannequins and tabloids. Oh, and one huge dollar sign – as if we needed a reminder that they’re loaded.
Interestingly, there is not one reference to Christmas or any other winter holiday in the card. It really is just an opportunity for the Kardashian-Jenners to play dress up and pose in front of a goofy background for one of the world’s top photographers.Way to get into the holiday spirit, people.
Probably the most intriguing thing about the “holiday” card, however, isn’t the mannequins, the weird setting or the lack of anything Christmas-related. Rather, it is the lack of Kanye West, baby North, Lamar Odom, Scott Disick and Rob Kardashian that is grabbing most of the attention. All of them are MIA, but before everyone starts jumping to conclusions, there are legitimate reasons for these absences.The card started out as a girls-only deal, which is kind of weird for a FAMILY photo, but whatev. Then Bruce decided he wanted to do it anyway, but Rob was totally cool with not participating because he has body issues right now. Kanye is touring and was unavailable, Scott just wasn’t feeling it, and Lamar…..well, Lamar spent the better part of the last 5 months smoking crack, so you can draw your own conclusions on why he wasn’t included in the photo.
So there you have it. The 2013 Keeping Up With the Kardashians Holiday Card, featuring (almost) all of your favorite reality stars.You.Are. Welcome.
