Because we all know it wouldn't have been the same without them.

Ah, 2016! It was a crazy year, full of unexpected events (RIP, Harambe) and controversial opinions (remember Marmite-gate?)

No one knows what 2017 will bring - all we do know, is that there's one family in particular that will be there, causing drama. 

Thank you, Kardashian-Jenners. 

So from naked selfies to texting scandals, let's take a look at the top 16 internet-breaking moments of 2016 from Reality TV's First Family... 

16. When Kendall did a ballet shoot for Vogue and angered ballerinas everywhere.

Kendall's shoot with Vogue España caused worldwide controversy after professional ballet dancers accused her of appropriating ballet culture.


15. When Blac Chyna leaked Rob’s phone number so he wouldn't 'text b*****s'.

Chyna tweeted Rob's phone number out to her 674,000 followers because 'females wanna keep texting' him. They seem to have patched things up following the birth of their daughter.

14. When Rob leaked Kylie’s phone number for not inviting Chyna to his baby shower.

Rob claimed the famous family purposely left Chyna out of Rob's own baby shower. Awkward.


13. When Kendall and Kylie got stuck in an elevator.

One involved a graphic screenshot from a 30 minute video, the other a short clip of a man and a woman appearing to have sex in a bathroom stall. Ky claimed that neither are real.

10. When Tyga had an affair with a transgender woman.

Mia Isabella, a transgender model, allegedly had an affair with Tyga and released raunchy text messages which supposedly exposed the fling.


9. When Kendall wore a replica of Paris Hilton's dress for her 21st birthday party.

The custom-made dress took a week to create and costs around $9,000. She also really drunk on the night, and forgot she was gifted a Rolls Royce. She literally forgot.  

8. When the internet thought Kylie got a Medal of Freedom for 'realising things'.

I mean, it was never going to be 'Emily' was it?


2. When Kim exposed Taylor Swift after Kanye's 'Famous' video controversy.
