Kylie Jenner Reveals Her 20-Foot Pink Christmas Tree
Pregnant Kylie Jenner has arisen from her bunker, where Kris Jenner is keeping her so she doesn’t give away any Keeping Up with the Kardashians spoilers, and she’s now showing the world her Christmas tree. The youngest Kardasho-Jenner surfaced and posted a photo of her 20-foot (!) tree to Instagram. It’s pink, and pink, they say, is a color signifying girlhood. Kylie, they say, is pregnant. Ipso facto ergo: Kylie is pregnant with a girl? Could be!
This isn’t news. Or, more specifically, it isn’t a new rumor. Back in September, People reported that “multiple sources” said that the long line of girls would continue with Kylie. (A tradition even Rob Kardashian complied with.) But you’d be forgiven if you missed it. The Kardasho-Jenners are just not pulling the same headline space as of late. The question is whether that’s their intention or not, though it must be, in part. One of People’s anonymous sources said, “Kylie isn’t going to publicly address her pregnancy until she gives birth. She’s not doing any public appearances and just wanted to take six months off.” Jenner just sent her friend Jordyn Woods to collect a Beauty Icon Award from W.W.D. last night. The flow of information and pictures from the family is just not what it used to be.
But that’s also not the whole story. Keeping Up with the Kardashians has long been a matter of keeping up with their ever-larger displays of wealth, narrated soothingly in a Calabasas lilt. But now even a secret pregnancy and a garish tree are not quite enough to re-ignite the Kardashian culture wars that once fueled their media mastery. Kylie’s 20-foot pink Christmas tree is not even the largest and most garish belonging to a former reality-TV star. In a Christmas season that Donald Trump is busy claiming he’s essentially invented, even the savviest Kardashian can‘t quite keep up.
