Kourtney Kardashian turns 40 and here's why she's obviously the best
As Kourtney Kardashian turns 40, we take a look back on everything she is, including being the best dressed Kardashian
Unless you have been living under a rock, you know the Kardashian sisters. A quick pop quiz to name the first Kardashian has either Kylie Jenner or Kim Kardashian come to mind, followed by Khloe Kardashian, thanks to all the headlines on epic cheating scandals recently. Then there's Kendall Jenner, who is comparatively more private than her sisters soaking in the spotlight and then there's Kourtney Kardashian, the eldest among them and perhaps, the most underrated.
She turned 40 Thursday and if you still pretend you don't know the Kardashians, then you would have never guessed she is 40. The Kardashians, who are trolled on the internet every day for being rich and famous and know how to monetize their names and build a billion-dollar empire, sure know how to give the world what they secretly want.
Kim K's sex tape may have been the inception of their rising fame, but Kourtney was the one who added value to the otherwise "just a good-looking family with money." She is also the one who actually, looks exactly the same today, as she looked in season one of their hit reality series 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians,' which is currently in season 16.
Comparison is inevitable, sorry, but Khloe is unrecognizable after getting so much work done on her face and body, same with the youngest billionaire, Kylie, and Mrs. West, Kim K. At this point, supermodel Kendall Jenner and Kourtney seem to be the "realest" for actually looking the same, and the latter getting even better with age. No, not in that unrecognizable way, just by looking the same but more refined and glowing than ever.
Besides, being a Kardashian, which means, inherently good-looking, Kourtney has delivered the most iconic scenes to the reality hit show, mostly with savage comebacks, and many of which are still meme-worthy almost a decade later. Remember when Kim lost her $75,000 diamond earring in the ocean? Kourtney's response was "Kim, there are people that are dying."
Her fights with Kim may have resulted in tears, especially when Kim said she is the "least interesting to look at," but her fans came to her defense almost immediately and she proved to her haters once and for all that she is nothing like what they think of her. She is a mother to three kids, and she recently launched her lifestyle brand 'Poosh,' and also leveled up her Instagram game with a plethora of sizzling pictures.
When her recent relationship with model Younes Bendjima went for a toss after cheating allegations, she unapologetically moved on unlike... nevermind.
On the occasion of her 40th birthday, several magazines have showered with entitlements, including the best dressed Kardashian, which I undeniably agree. Kourtney Kardashian is the reason why sleek hair bun looks so good with a power suit featuring plunging necklines.
More credit ought to be given to this 40-year-old Kardashian, who does not hesitate to speak her mind and sigh "thank God I don't have friends." Her sassy personality has definitely given much depth to 'KUWTK' throughout the seasons, but it's beyond reality TV that her sassy personality exudes, take for example late night shows and interviews.
In the 'Late Night Show With David Letterman,' Kourtney showed up with her recently divorced sister Kim, who was fighting a legal battle with her ex Kris Humphries. "He's suing me for an annulment based on the fact that I frauded him into marrying him for publicity," Kim told Letterman. Kourtney, with a smirky face, quipped and defended Kim, "But, I think if she was gonna do it for publicity, she'd pick someone people knew."
Her wit and sense of humor also makes her one of the smartest Kardashians and she can shut anyone with one sharp sentence. She's done that to her ex and baby daddy, Scott Disick, multiple times. "I could literally slap the shit out of you and feel so much better."
With that said and done, and the bonus of beauty and wit added, Kourtney also has, what we can call emotional intelligence. She's okay not being as savvy a businesswoman as her sisters as long as she is being a good mother. "If I had enough money I wouldn't work, I wouldn't do the show. I would be a full-time mom — that's what I want to do," she said in a heated argument with Kim and concluded with the fact that "at the end of the day when you die and I die it doesn't matter how much money is in our bank account, but what matters to me is my memories."
With this, I rest my case, happy 40th birthday Kourtney. You do you the best!
