A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Kylie is close with her family; that's about it.
Positive Role Models
Kylie's parents, Kris and Caitlyn, show concern for her well-being, though the way this is conveyed is not always perfect. Kylie is continually celebrated for her surgically altered appearance and revealing outfits.
Violence & Scariness
None, really -- though the shots of aggressive paparazzi hounding Kylie and company can be a bit scary.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Kylie is all about posing in next-to-nothing outfits. Suggestive commentary (comments about body parts and sex acts) is pretty rampant.

Products & Purchases
Kylie owns her own cosmetics company, which is heavily hyped in every episode. There's also persistent flashing of name-brand items (clothing, technology, and food brands) and luxury items like Lamborghini and Mercedes automobiles.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Life of Kylie is a reality series focused on Kylie Jenner, Kris and Caitlyn Jenner's youngest daughter and previously of Keeping Up with the Kardashians fame. Social media is frequently mentioned, with countless shots of Kylie taking bikini-clad selfies and posing suggestively. The show examines Kylie's role as CEO of her own cosmetics company, so her products are continually being mentioned as she tools around from place to place in her Mercedes. Kylie and her friends make racy sexual references, and there's some swearing (the strongest words are bleeped).
Is It Any Good?
Here we are with yet another series from the Kardashian-Jenner family full of raging materialism and empty navel-gazing. The family has been profiting from their hyper-extended "15 minutes of fame" for nearly a decade, and you'd think by now they'd have run out of contrived dramas and scripted revelations to televise.
Kylie says this show will help fans understand "the real me," but as it progresses, it becomes painfully clear that even she doesn't know who that person is. She complains about having to keep up appearances and the stresses of fame, yet she spends all her time courting it via sexy selfies, club appearances, and magazine covers. Hypocritical? Sure, but hardly surprising given that the 19-year old has literally grown up in the limelight, with a fame-skewed perception of what life is really like. In a rare moment of self-reflection, she admits that she doesn't really know who she's trying to please with her lifestyle, which is depressing, especially as she doesn't pursue this train of thought in any meaningful way. She claims she has "no interests" other than her makeup line, and a show about someone with no interests outside of her own concerns is anything but "must see" TV.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
