Keeping up with the Kardashians has been tough this year. A lot has happened in 2018. First came Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian both revealing their secret pregnancies and later giving birth. Then Kim Kardashian welcomed a child via surrogate. And then the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal emerged. But that's before you even get onto the celebrity shade, Photoshop fails, awkward award show run ins ~and~ controversial Twitter moments. Let's look back at the most awkward Kardashian moments of 2018, shall we?
When Kim called Kourtney the "least exciting to look at"
Kim and Kourtney's feud took center stage on Keeping Up With The Kardashians this year, and came to a head when Kourtney refused to adhere to Kim's photoshoot schedule. "No one wants you in the f***ing shoot so get the f*** out of here," Kim screamed at her. "Get the f*** out of here and go. No one wants you in the f***ing shoot. I'm planning it, so we don't want you in the shoot. I need Kourtney to not be so f***ing annoying with a stick up her ass like she runs this sh*t, because she doesn't. She's the least exciting to look at."Continue reading below ↓
And then clarified her comments by calling her "the most boring"
Later, when the internet criticized Kim for being so savage, she attempted to clarify her comments—referring to Kourtney as the "most boring" instead. She explained, "We got into a fight, I said, 'You're the least exciting to look at.' What I meant is you're the most boring. People think that it's like I said, 'Kill your mom.'" Er, not quiiite sure that cleared the air, Kim.
When Kendall shaded Sofia Richie over dating Scott Disick
Though Scott and Sofia became Instagram official at the end of 2017, it wasn't until January 2018 that Kendall Jenner had her say. A fan account shared a photo of Sofia and Scott sitting in the front of a car while his kids are in the back, and Kendall commented, "Awww Scott and his kids," seemingly referring to the 15 year age gap between Scott, 34, and Sofia, 19.
Considering Kendall and Sofia were once BFFs, it's clear Kendall sided with her half-sister Kourtney on this one.Continue reading below ↓
When Kim said she was on ecstasy when she made the sex tape
Kim took oversharing to a whole new level, when she revealed to Kendall and Scott that she was on drugs during her marriage to Damon Thomas in 2000, and when she made her sex tape with Ray J in 2003.
She said, "I got married on ecstasy. The first time. I did ecstasy once and I got married. I did it again, I made a sex tape. Like, everything bad would happen. Absolutely [I was high]. Everyone knows it. Like, my jaw was shaking the whole time."
And Ray J's camp denied it
Ray J's camp denied the claims, though, with a source telling TMZ that Kim "never touched ecstasy" during filming, and that he is "offended" by her claims that she was in a "significantly altered state" when they made it. The insider added that while the reality TV star "took no hard drugs or drank alcohol," she did "smoke marijuana from a penis-shaped pipe."Continue reading below ↓
When Khloe found out Tristan cheated on her while filiming KUWTK
Poor Khloe. 2018 hasn't been a great year for her relationship, after it emerged that Tristan had "got up close and personal" with another woman while she was heavily pregnant with their daughter True Thompson. The story broke while filming for KUWTK, which means Khloe has had to relive the drama six months later.
When they were called out for their KUWTK Photoshop fail
While the Kardashian-Jenner clan have been accused of Photoshop fails before, it wasn't until 2018 that fans noticed something weird about the promos for KUWTK. While Kris and the sisters all look a similar height, in reality, Khloe is 5'8, Kim only 5'2, Kendall 5'9, Kourtney 5', and Kylie 5'5. The difference between Khloe and Kim doesn't look like seven inces from here.Continue reading below ↓

When Kim was made into a meme

When they were accused of using a Kim look-alike
When the family's Calvin Klein shoot came out, it wasn't just Kylie Jenner's hidden baby bump that caught the fans' attention. People also thought Kim Kardashian had been replaced by a look-alike, or was very heavily Photoshopped.
When they mysteriously fired Joyce Bonelli
A ~strange~ story unfolded when makeup artist Joyce Bonelli stopped working with the Kardashians, with Us Weekly saying the "family doesn't speak to her anymore," and that "she hasn't worked for them for months." They even stopped following her on social, and then Joyce posted this shady bathrobe to Instagram.
PEOPLE said the split was thanks to Joyce being shady with money, saying she allegedly "tried to go around [the Kardashians] on a deal so [they] wouldn't make money off of it."Continue reading below ↓

When Tyga shaded Kim on InstagramDespite Kylie Jenner and Tyga breaking up in 2017, the rapper called out her sister Kim's spelling on Instagram in an awkward move. Kim shared a picture in Japan along with the caption "Train Station in Keyoto," to which Tyga replied, "KYOTO*." Shady.
