Over the last several years, the Kardashian family has dominated reality TV. Thanks to their show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the family has become an open book, and viewers have been given the inside scoop into their interesting – and sometimes annoying – lives. However, despite how many people truly feel about the Kardashians, keeping up with them has become a guilty pleasure. But even with their relatively public lifestyle, the Kardashians, like everyone else, has had a few issues that they’ve tried to keep out of the public eye. Unfortunately for them, their level of fame makes it impossible for any secret to stay a secret for long. Here are 10 shocking secrets the Kardashians are hiding from us.
The Kardashians sued their step mother
Ellen Kardashian, one of the wives of the Kardashians’ late father, Robert, messed with the wrong bunch when she decided to publish some of Robert’s journals after his death. In the entries that were supposedly written by Robert, he made some pretty bold claims about Kris Jenner, one of which said that she used to get so drunk that she had to sleep on the floor. Although the Kardashian children never really liked their step mother things really came to a head once legal action was taken.

According to Robert Kardashian’s final wife, Ellen, “According to the calls I received from the attorney, Kourtney felt like she wanted to have her father’s handwriting analyzed to make sure that he actually had written those things down that he left me. And she did. Kourtney actually had his handwriting analyzed. But every time she called the attorney about something, he would call me to let me know. It was never-ending. There were many things, many things about the will.”
Kris Jenner cheated on Bruce
In 2013, rumors began circulating that Kris Jenner had cheated on Bruce.

A lot of the show is scripted
Although most people have already speculated this as with any other reality TV show, but apparently, some of the scenes on KUWTK are scripted. In 2013, several media outlets reported that a meltdown Kim had on screen after her mom and sister TP’d her house was actually scripted. According to a source, the entire situation was fabricated – although it’s a little unclear that producers would gain out of making up such a moment, when they could easily have found more realistic and exciting ways to get Kim upset.
