The Kardashians Caught Their Scary Car Wreck on Tape, Naturally
As you may or may not remember, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner were involved in a car accident this past February. The family fortunately escaped serious harm after spinning out on a Bozeman, MT road, and now we can finally(?) see the nerve-wracking experience for ourselves.
Midway through a preview for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians mid-season finale, Khloe struggles to keep control of the wheel, murmuring "ohmygodohmygod" as an aghast Kylie braces against the passenger seat door. Like most car wrecks, the action happens quickly, but there's just enough time to maybe get a little bit judge-y when Kim screeches, "I DON'T HAVE MY SEAT BELT ON!" You're a legal guardian, lady! As CBS reports, A Beautiful Mind subject John Nash and wife Alicia weren't buckled up when they lost their life in an auto accident on May 23, so there's all sorts of safety takeaways here.
After 10 seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and its subsequent spin-offs, it's well apparent that the family isn't just comfortable living in the public eye — at this point, one wonders if they're capable of doing anything without documenting it for posterity. The public clearly finds the results compelling enough to support a TV empire, despite the fact that the show has often felt...well, scripted (sorry if it comes as a shock that these storylines are heavily massaged). This fraught moment, along with Bruce Jenner's poignant gender transition storyline, suggests that the family can provide enough drama for at least 45 more seasons.
