If you kept up with Keeping Up With the Kardashians last season, you saw that as Kourtney, Kim and Khloe started their own families and dramas--not always in that order--the two youngest members of the klan, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, 14 and 12, emerged as budding personalities in their own right. When Kourtney hopped in the shower after her water broke, it was Kylie that delivered the season's best line: "Let's get clean so we can get blood all over my vagina!"
"People tell us all the time we should have our own show," says Kendall, who's modeled for Nordstrom and Forever 21. "I absolutely love it--everything about it!" she says of modeling--especially bonding with her sisters. "Kim gives me advice and Khloe tells me how lucky I am because she always wanted to be a model," offers Kendall. "She gives me pointers--it's like I'm Khloe in another body."
"It may not always look like it on the show, but
our sisters are just really good role models," adds
Kylie, who's eyeing acting. As the family grows, so do
the role models. "Lamar [Odom, Khloe's husband]
told me the most important thing in a relationship is
to be able to trust the guy," remembers Kendall. Not
that she's had to use the advice yet: "We don't date,"
she says. In fact, for growing up in a family where
mom's Christmas parties meant visits from Sugar Ray
Leonard and Babyface, the girls are still pretty much
normal tweens, doing charity work at school, shopping
at Planet Blue in Malibu and hitting the beach--when
Kylie doesn't have a bar or bat mitzvah to go to. Sure,
they have their celebrity crushes--but for the right
reasons: "We're obsessed with Britney Spears," says
Kylie. "I've been listening to her songs since the second
grade." But mostly, adds Kendall, "We like her because
she's someone who's really turned her life around."
Hear that, Scott?
