For those of us of a certain age, it's difficult to remember a time when the Kardashians weren't a part of everyday life. But - as hard as it may be to believe - there was actually a brief (and blissful) part of the 21st century that didn't consist of shoddy photoshops, cheating scandals or public feuds.
But then 2007 rolled around, and the world changed forever.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians aired its first season in that fateful year, and it was an instant success. Since then, the Kardashian-Jenner family have somehow managed to keep the drama and tension at a constant high - but not everything else has remained the same.Check out the dramatic trailer for the upcoming 16th season:
Indeed, over the past 12 years, the famous family have evolved quite a bit... and some of them are totally unrecognisable.1. Kim Kardashian 2. Khloe Kardashian 3. Kourtney Kardashian 4. Kendall Jenner 5. Kylie Jenner 6. Kris Jenner
It just goes to show: a lot can change in 12 years... especially if you have millions of dollars to spend on your appearance.
Come on, though - let's be real; we may complain about them a lot, but we secretly love the Kardashians (or, at least, we love to hate them), and so we really hope they stick around for at least another 12 years. Roll on the next season of KUWTK!
