Why I Watch KUWTK

I watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians.  This is a statement that gets me a lot of strange looks and immediate judgment from even my closest friends.  Why do I watch this show?  Nearly everyone asks me this question and I have a number of reasons why I turn on this show on Sunday nights.  First and foremost, this is an easy show to watch.  There is no dramatic conflict, no plotline I have to follow, no blood and gore, just an easy show about crazy rich celebrities.  So whether its doing homework or writing an article as I am doing right now, turning on this show is an easy way to distract myself without having to pay too much attention to what is actually going on.  My second reason usually gets me even more weird looks than my original statement that I watch the show: I enjoy the show because it’s visually pleasing.  From their stainless steel white houses to their perfect closets, the colors and cleanliness of the lives of the Kardashians make the show fun to simply stare at and dream about. Finally, I watch this show because I genuinely find this family somewhat fun.  I love my family more than anything; so I find a TV show solely focused on family to be entertaining and honestly uplifting when things seem chaotic and stressful.  Watching the Kardashians for self care and relaxation doesn’t make a lot of sense to a lot of people, as I have heard time and time again that the Karadashians are stupid or self-absorbed and while that may or may not be true it doesn’t really matter to me.  I watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians and I don’t even call it a guilty pleasure, so if you ever need some mindless visually pleasing TV, maybe give the Kardashian family a try sometime.
