Some words and slangs we learnt from “Keeping up with the Kardashians”

Do you know “Bible” is not only a holy book but a phrase? No? Then you need to refresh your dictionary according to KUWTK.

There is hardly anyone across the globe who does not know about the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Thanks to the “Keeping up with the Kardashian”, everyone knows who’s who about the Kardashian-Jenner family. We dressed up like them, eat salads with gusto like Kardashians and most importantly, spoke like them. Anyone who has the good fortune of watching KUWTK knows that the Kardashian-Jenner clan has their own vocabulary, and whatever they say becomes iconic. Here are a few words or slangs we learnt from the iconic series.


How would you describe this word? Anxiety as in feeling anxious. No, according to the KarJenner dictionary. Anxiety is used to stress something out, which is not particularly making them happy. For example, talking about turning 30 at one time was giving Khloe Kardashian major anxiety.


How would you say when you really want your friends to believe in what you are saying. Do we hear “I swear”? It’s time to make a slight correction to your vocabulary. You say “Bible” like KarJenner clan to claim the authenticity of your word. Believe it or not, this word is what is legit. Don’t believe us? Bible!


An endearment we can use for friends and family. Funnily enough, they even called their employees in DASH stores “Dash dolls”. So, next time you meet your long-lost friend, you use “Doll”.


Okay is long gone. Say hello to “Okurr”, the word coined by the one and only Khloe Kardashian and later adopted by her family and the whole world. Okurr is an emotion. When you see a beautiful piece of jewellery and that too in your budget, you go Okurrr.


Coined by one and only cosmetic mogul, Kylie Jenner. Sus means activity or, more importantly, suspicious activities of an equally suspicious and shady person. It is later explained by Kim Kardashian as short for “suspect” or “suspicious”.


When your spell check stops correcting a word, it shows how authentic that word is. This is what is happening with Momager too. Momager is a mom who is also your manager, as in who manages all your professional commitment. In KUWTK, the term is coined by the Kardashian sisters for their mother, Kris Jenner, who is their Momager. As the iconic series is ending after 20 successful seasons, we can’t help but miss the show and its colourful vocabulary.
