Keeping up with Kendall and Kylie

These rising reality stars have no trouble keeping up with their famous Kardashian half-sisters, Kourtney, Kim and Khloé. But like most teens they also have their fair share of teen and boy drama!

Kendall Jenner

The leggy 17-year-old beauty has taken the modelling world by storm thanks to her supermodel-in-the-making measurements. Here’s why we can’t get enough of her.

She’s comfortable in her own skin

Kendall doesn’t let the constant criticism that she’s too thin get to her. “I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen. What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone fat. It’s not a nice feeling.”

She’s a hard worker

Kendall and Kylie left their private school near their home in Calabasas, California, last year due to their hectic work schedules. They’re now being home-schooled. “It became really hard at times because we’d go to school all day long, have a ton of homework, then come home and try to do it – but we couldn’t because there was a whole camera crew and our family there. It was also hard to make the time for studying when we were away all the time. With home-schooling it’s easier.”

She doesn’t let her “momager” walk all over her!

“I’ve always had a say in what I do,” Kendall says about her notoriously pushy mom, Kris Jenner, who manages the careers of her six kids. “My mom would always come to me and ask if I wanted to do something she thought was amazing. She’d say, ‘Oh my God, you have to do this,’ and I’d be like, ‘No, no thanks!”

She wants to forge her own identity

“I’m trying my best with what I want to do, which is modelling. I don’t really care what other people have to say about me taking the spotlight off my sisters. I’m just doing my own thing.” She also wants to break away professionally from Kylie with whom she’s worked on book deals and their PacSun clothing line. “‘We’re trying to kind of separate from the kiddy-sisterly photoshoots so we can be seen as two different people.”

She’s charitable

“I volunteered at Meals on Wheels, an organisation that delivers healthy meals to people who are homebound. It’s nice to be able to help them.”

She appreciates what she has, but . . .

“We don’t remember what it’s like to be normal kids who aren’t harassed by the paparazzi – I hate it,” she reveals. “It can also be hard to deal with other kids who are jealous or mean. I can’t post a picture on Instagram without being criticised.’’

Fun facts

-Kendall was only 11 and had just returned from a summer camp with Kylie when their mom announced the family would be starring in their own reality show, now known as Keeping up with the Kardashians.

-Her three older half-sisters – Kourtney, Kim and Khloé – are her style icons.

-If she could trade places with any of her sisters for a day it would be Kim. “The only time she sleeps is on a plane. It’s just crazy. I feel bad for her, but I still want to know what it’s like.”

-She’s thinking about cutting her hair. “Miley [Cyrus] took such a risk with hers and I love how it turned out.”

-She doesn’t want to change her surname to Kardashian. “We’re full-throttle Jenners! [their dad is former Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner]. We don’t have any desire to be Kardashians.”

Kylie Jenner

She’s gorgeous, outgoing and spunky – what’s not to like about the 15-year-old, the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan!

She’s fun

“Everyone tells me I’m a lot like Khloé and Rob [her half-sister and half-brother]. I like to have fun; I’m silly and I keep the mood light.”

She’s always herself

“When thecameras are around we just do whatever we usually do. We’re just used to them and we know the camera guys because we see them every day so it’s like we’re just hanging out. It’s comfortable and even when they’re not there, it’s the same thing.”

She can sniff out hangers-on

Kylie knows a lot of people just want to be friends with them because of their fame. That’s why she sticks with people she knew before she got famous. “Anyone who I’ve dated or who I’m friends with are people I’ve known since elementary [primary] school.”

She’s been romantically linked to two of entertainment’s coolest teens – Aussie singer Cody Simpson and Will Smith’s son, actor Jaden Smith.

While she’s never said if they dated or not, Kylie (along with sis Kendall) have become good pals with Cody and his sister, Ally, after they met at a premiere a year ago. It’s rumoured she’s dating Jaden (14) whom she’s often seen with.

She doesn’t tolerate friends who drop her!

‘‘I think they’re not true friends if they ditch you. They aren’t worthy enough and good enough to be your friend. That just means you have to go out and find who your real friends are or make new ones.” Good on you, Kylie!

Fun facts

- She’s expressed an interest in acting, but feels college is a bigger priority.

- Her big brother, Rob, checks in on her at least three times a day, and Khloé’s hubby, NBA player Lamar Odom, wants to meet any guy she and Kendall talk to.

- She’s obsessed with leather pants.

- The dumbest thing she’s read about herself is that she cares only about fame.

- Her celebrity crush is Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson.

- She loves the 2004 movie Mean Girls.
