Over the 15 seasons that “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” has aired on E!, the famous reality family has aired out all their dirty laundry – the good, the bad, and the utterly jaw-dropping. From Kim Kardashian‘s robbery to Caitlyn Jenner‘s transition, the Kardashian-Jenner family has shared it all, and some moments from the series have been so dramatic they’re impossible to forget.
Read on for the most shocking and heartbreaking moments from “KUWTK.”
Kim lost Kourtney’s nude photos.
During the first season of “KUWTK,” Kourtney’s nude photos leaked after Kim stole them and put them in her purse as a prank. Her purse was stolen, and when Kim realised that meant her pictures could leak, she panicked. The family called in the FBI for help since Kourtney was underage when the photos were taken, and in the end, they never surfaced.
Khloe was arrested on charges of driving under the influence.
Khloe supposedly reenacted her arrest outside of a club in 2007 for the “KUWTK” cameras, according to the book “Kardashian Dynasty.” The show also followed Khloe the morning she went to jail after violating probation, including the famous scene when Kris told Kim to stop taking selfies in the car because “your sister’s going to jail.”
The sisters got into a spat early on, and Kim hit Khloe with her purse.
On what is remembered as one of the most iconic episodes in the second season of the show, Kim hit Khloe with her purse and says the line “don’t be f—— rude” after an argument involving a Bentley.
Kim posed for Playboy for the first time.
In the first season of “KUWTK,” Kim posed for Playboy for the first time and brought mum Kris along with her for support. At the time, her decision to pose for the magazine was shocking.
Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe snuck off to a swimwear shoot.
Despite the fact that Caitlyn voiced her concerns about the older sisters participating,Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe snuck off to Mexico to model for Ashley Paige swimwear. They had a blast, but their secret didn’t stay a secret for long.
Khloe Kardashian unexpectedly married Lamar Odom.
In 2009, Khloe married Lamar just one month after they started dating. At the time, Kardashian’s family was shocked to find out she was taking such a huge step so early on in their relationship, but they quickly pulled it together for her big day. Later, the newlyweds scored their own spinoff reality show on E!, “Khloe and Lamar.”
Khloe and Lamar decided to get divorced.
Five years after the unexpected wedding, Khloe decided to file for divorce from Lamar in 2014. Khloe discussed the divorce on the show numerous times. Ultimately, Khloe ended up calling off their divorce a year later after Lamar’s overdose but filed again in 2016. Their divorce was finalised later that year.
Scott’s wild night in Las Vegas raised a few eyebrows.
In a 2010 episode, the family was in Las Vegas for Kim’s birthday when Scott got so drunk that Kris told the waiter to stop serving him drinks. Scott got mad and stuffed a $US100 bill in a waiter’s mouth, embarrassing Kourtney.
Kris met up with Todd Waterman.
Things got tense on the show when Kris agreed to see her ex-boyfriend Todd Waterman while she was still married to Caitlyn Jenner. Kris’ kids were also upset with her because Todd Waterman was the person she cheated on Robert Kardashian with.
Kim cried when she lost her earring.
After Humphries threw her into the ocean in Bora Bora, Kim started sobbing after losing a $US75,000 diamond earring. This gave way to one of the most iconic Kardashian moments when Kourtney simply said in respond, “Kim, there’s people that are dying.”
Kris Humphries proposed to Kim.
Many were shocked when Kris Humphries popped the question on an episode of “KUWTK” just seven months after meeting Kim. The show followed Humphries choosing the ring and planning the proposal with Kris Jenner and Kim’s BFF Jonathan Cheban.
And then Kris and Kim got divorced after 72 days of marriage.
What was more shocking that Kris’ proposal? The fact that their marriage ended so quickly. Although the episode aired long after people knew that the couple had called things off (after 72 days), Kim was devastated when she talked about going through with the wedding so she wouldn’t disappoint people on “Kim and Kourtney Take New York.”
Kourtney Kardashian pulled Mason out of herself during delivery.

Kim stole Kourtney’s breast milk.
When the two were living together in Miami, Kim’s psoriasis got much worst and she read online that breast milk helped with the red spots. What started as Kim taking a bit of Kourtney’s breast milk that was in the fridge, turned into much more when Kim thought that it was working and needed more.
Kourtney finally got wind of the fact that Kim was taking her breast milk and decided to directly squirt her breast milk onto Kim’s psoriasis.
Kris Jenner got a monkey.
When Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe noticed that Kris Jenner had babies on the brain, they tried to mitigate the problem by getting Kris her very own pet monkey.

“He’s not being a good partner to me,” Kourtney said on the show. “I could never rely on him, depend on him for one single thing and I don’t want to show my kids that that’s OK.”

Rob lashed out at his family.
In season six, Rob lashed out at his family when he thought they weren’t taking him seriously and didn’t come to pick him up when he was stranded without a ride, which led to a screaming match between him, Kris, and his older sisters.
“You don’t even pay attention to half the things I say,” he said before storming out.
Scott lost his parents shortly after one another.
Scott Disick entered a deep depression on “KUWTK” after losing both of his parents close together. His father Jeff died just three months after his mum Bonnie died, and the effect it had on Scott was easy to see on the show.

In the special, Kris and their children spoke to the camera in interviews about what her transition has been like for them behind closed doors.
The family staged an intervention for Rob Kardashian.
Before Rob stopped appearing on “KUWTK,” the family grappled with his depression. In a 2015 episode, the Kardashians confronted him about his depression and health, staging an intervention for him. At the time, Kris even said that she was worried he might die.
Kim and Kanye’s relationship began.
Not long after ending her marriage to Kris Humphries, Kim and Kanye started dating and Kim was very vague about their relationship on the show.

Kim was robbed in Paris.
In October 2017, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in her hotel room during a trip to France for Paris Fashion Week. When the next season of “KUWTK” aired, Kim relived that night to explain to the cameras (and her sisters) exactly what she was feeling in that moment.
“They had the gun up to me and I just knew that was the moment they are just totally going to shoot me in the head,” Kim said on the episode. “I just prayed Kourtney [Kardashian] was going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed.”
Rob refused to attend Kim’s wedding to Kanye.
When the family flew first to Paris and then Italy to see Kim and Kanye wed, Rob flew to Paris but ultimately decided to turn around and go back home because he didn’t feel like being in the public eye at the time. Kim was upset when she received the email sharing the news with her, but proceeded with her wedding as planned.
Caitlyn Jenner’s memoir caused a rift in the family.
Caitlyn’s memoir, “The Secrets Of My Life,” caused major drama in the family due to her portrayal of her life and marriage to Kris.

Scott angered Kourtney during a trip to Vegas.
When Scott told Kourtney that he was headed to Las Vegas, the family hoped he would be on his best behaviour. Although he was there for a gig he booked for Kris Jenner, he ended up getting belligerently drunk, angering Kourtney, who was pregnant with their third child, Reign, at the time.
Khloe and Caitlyn’s feud caused a permanent rift.

Everyone’s familiar with the feud between Taylor Swift and Kanye West, and the fact that Kim released videos of her on Snapchat of a phone call between Swift and her husband. But “KUWTK” took things a step further. On the show, Kim and Khloe didn’t hold back on the subject, sharing their side of the story with the cameras.
Rob and Blac Chyna got engaged.
Rob had been laying low for a couple years, so everyone was shocked when they found out that Rob and Blac Chyna were engaged, especially since his sisters found out through news stories online, and not from their brother himself.
Blac Chyna announced she was expecting a baby.
In that same episode,Rob told his sisters that Chyna was pregnant and the news seemingly blindsided them. Even though Rob and Chyna are no longer together, they continue to co-parent their daughter Dream together.

Kris had an allergic reaction on vacation.
While the family was relaxing in the Dominican Republic together, Kris’ lip swelled up and her family was less than sympathetic to her. It turned out that her lip was a reaction to something she’d eaten while on vacation.

MJ and Kris had an emotional interview with each other.
To preserve MJ’s memories about herself and their family, Kris interviewed her for a video they could have after she’s gone. It turned into an emotional moment shared by this mother and daughter and became even more tear-jerking when MJ asked Kris questions, too.
Kim and longtime assistant Stephanie Shepherd went their separate ways.
After rumours that the Kardashians had fired long-time assistant Shepherd surface, Shepherd explained in a video of Kim’s app that she wanted to leave to grow her own career instead of someone else’s. Kim also addressed their working relationship on “KUWTK.”
“Stephanie and I have decided to part ways,” Kardashian said on the show. “She wanted a different role and I was going in a different direction, so for both of us, I just felt like it wasn’t the right fit anymore … She’s really been there for me. So I said, ‘I love you so much, and maybe this is good to push you to figure out what you want to do. ‘ It ended really well. She knew that she needed this time and that it wasn’t working.”

“I did ecstasy once, I got married. I did it again and I made a sex tape,” Kim said. “Like, everything bad would happen.”
Kim and Kourtney fought over the family’s Christmas card.
In season 15, Kourtney and Kim had one of their most explosive fights ever when they couldn’t come to an agreement about when they were going to shoot their family Christmas card, which led to them fighting for each other over several episodes.
“I need Kourtney to not be so f–king annoying with a stick up her a– like she runs this s— because she doesn’t,” Kim said at the time. “She is the least exciting to look at, so she can be out.”
Khloe and Malika had a fight.
Feeling left out with how much time Khloe spent in Cleveland with Tristan Thompson,Malika had a rare argument with her best friend.
“It is a bit of a strain. I don’t wanna blame you because you moved. That’s so childish. But I think it’s hard. You and I, we went from seeing each other how many days a week to seeing each other every other month,” Malika said
It seemed like they might not be able to salvage their friendship at the time, but they were able to work things out.
Khloe had to put her dog down.
On season 15 of “KUWTK,”Khloe’s dog, Gabbana was getting older and weaker. After rushing Gabanna to the hospital one night, Khloe learned that she had developed fast-spreading cancer.

Kendall Jenner made headlines with a Pepsi commercial.
Kendall Jenner and Pepsi made waves when they released an ad featuring Jenner giving a Pepsi to a police officer in the midst of a protest. The ad was criticised for appearing tone deaf in the wake of police brutality. While Pepsi originally stood by the ad, they eventually removed it.
Jenner didn’t address the controversy immediately but eventually, on the show, Jenner tearfully talked about the ad saying “obviously, if I knew that this was going to be the outcome, I would have never done something like this,” adding “I trusted everyone. I trusted the teams, but after I saw the reaction and I read what people had to say about it, I most definitely saw what went wrong. I was so stuck, and I really didn’t know what to do, that I completely shut down.”
