Everything the Kardashians touch seems to turn to gold...or does it?!
While the famous family has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success, they have fallen flat on their faces quite a few times, too.
In fact, we've got a collection of five Kardashian flops that they've managed to persevere in spite of...
1. (Not So) Happily Ever After...
First and foremost, we have the most obvious: Kim Kardashian
's marriage to Kris Humphries
. While the ceremony itself was hugely successful in terms of ratings, the marriage itself was not, with Kim filing for divorce from Kris just 72 days after they walked down the aisle.
2. Khloe Kardashian Gets the Axe From X Factor
didn't have a good feeling about her X Factor
hosting gig. In fact, the reality star admitted that she considered faking a heart attack
before the first live show, just to get out of the gig. While the first show didn't go all that great, Khloe tried to forge on and battle through it. Unfortunately, things didn't get much better throughout the season, which was filled with its fair share of awkward moments for poor Khloe.
When the season ended, it wasn't exactly clear who cut ties with who, but what was clear is that the show didn't want Khloe coming back for a second season.
3. Kim's "Maternity" Wardrobe
Kim took a LOT of flack for her maternity wardrobe. Many critics chose to attack her weight gain, but we think that it was the way she decided to dress her pregnant body that made her a target.
Kim has always been fashionable, but when she started packing on pregnancy pounds, she didn't seem willing to part ways with her "regular" wardrobe and continued to wear form-fitting clothes that hugged her body in all the wrong places.
4. Kris Jenner's Talk Show
Kim has joked with Kris Jenner
that she acts like "the fourth sister," when she's hanging out with the girls. Considering all of the other girls have had successful spin-off shows, Kris decided to try her luck and go out on her own, too, with a daytime talk show.
Unfortunately, the show got bad reviews
and has not been renewed
after its six-week trial run.
5. Kards in Cars
The Kardashian clan has certainly had their fair share of car trouble--and we're not talking about the kind a mechanic can fix (although they've had that, too).
In March 2007, Khloe got herself a DUI. Of course, she wasn't the first and she wouldn't be the last as husband Lamar Odom
is fresh off of a DUI that he received on August 30. To make matters worse, Lamar refused to submit to a drug test and his license has been suspended for a year.
Now, on to Kanye West
, who--like Lamar--is a Kardashian by proxy. When Kanye's $750,000 Lamborghini was being delivered to Kim's house back in May, her gates closed on the car
and completely scratched up the sides.
Then, we have Kylie Jenner
's little fender-bender, where she rear-ended another and caused a three-car collision just 18 days after getting her license.
Fortunately, everyone was all right and Kylie seems to have moved on from the incident.
