The Kardashian-Jenner family is worth well over $1 billion. According to Forbes, the richest, Kylie Jenner, is worth over $900 million. While the poorest, Rob Kardashian, is barely scarping by with just $10 million.

Poor Rob, someone should start him a GoFundMe page.

As any insanely rich person knows, the best way to stay wealthy is to keep your filthy lucre to yourself.


One way the employees of Jenner Communications are keeping their Hermès Birkin purses full is by not paying the help.

A job posting recently found at EntertainmentCareers.net shows the Kardashians are looking for an unpaid intern to run with errands, wrap gifts, and help with the kids’ toys.

A big qualifier is you must be a student. Which makes sense if you’re pursuing a bachelor’s degree in gift wrapping, which isn’t currently offered at USC.

The job posting made its way to Reddit where the forum’s users were beside themselves.

“So the Kardashians have people working for them, not for free, but paying university rates, and possibly going into debt to wrap presents and run errands?” Reddit user, throwaway_circus, wrote.

“It's not even not paying them. If the students are doing this for college credit, they are PAYING to work, possibly by borrowing money and accumulating student loan debt,” the user continued.

Another Redditor wasn't shocked in the least.

“You’re surprised the rich have found a way to effectively enslave the poor in such a way that the poor are supposed to be thankful?” Reddit user,  PelagianEmpiricist, wrote

Another user posted federal Department of Labor unpaid intern guidelines, and the job appears to be in violation of at least two of the seven.

2. The extent to which the internship provides training that would be similar to that which would be given in an educational environment, including the clinical and other hands-on training provided by educational institutions.

6. The extent to which the intern’s work complements, rather than displaces, the work of paid employees while providing significant educational benefits to the intern.

The super sleuths at Reddit also uncovered another Jenner Communications posting for an unpaid intern.

This unpaid internship involves “helping with the dog.” Looks like the perfect opportunity for anyone studying to be a veterinarian.

For those who wouldn’t mind working for America’s reality royal family for free, be warned, the Glassdoor reviews for Jenner Communications are terrible.

"Stay far, far away" a former intern wrote. "The people working there are incredibly mean and don't take time to answer questions. No one cares about you or cares to properly train you."

Another former intern rated the experience as "horrible" and said, "Other people who worked there were not very nice and were snobby."

Adorable Dexter and his new chew toy. Thanks Chewy Claus.

True

Every holiday season, millions of kids send letters asking for everything from a new bike to a pony. Some even make altruistic requests such as peace on Earth or helping struggling families around the holidays.

But wouldn’t the holiday season be even more magical if our pets had their wishes granted, too? That’s why Chewy Claus is stepping up to spread holiday cheer to America’s pets.

Does your dog dream of a month’s supply of treats or chew toys? Would your cat love a new tree complete with a stylish condo? How about giving your betta fish some fresh decor that’ll really tie its tank together?

Or do your pets need something more than mere creature comforts such as life-saving surgery?

U.S. Soccer star expertly handles an Iranian reporter’s loaded questions about race.

Tyler Adams’s response proves exactly why he’s the captain of the US soccer team.

Tyler Adams expertly handles Iranian reporter's question

Reporters are supposed to ask the right questions to get to the truth but sometimes it seems sports reporters ask questions to throw you off your game. There's no doubt that this Iranian reporter who was questioning Tyler Adams, the US soccer team captain at the press conference during the World Cup had an agenda that didn't involve getting to the truth.

It's not clear if the questions were designed to throw the young player off of his game or if the goal was embarrassment. It really is hard to tell, but Adams handled the unexpectedly harsh encounter with intelligence and poise when some may have found it justified for him to get angry.

Idaho pet squirrel amazingly thwarts a would-be burglar in resurfaced viral video

The suspect was identified by the scratches the squirrel left.

Idaho pet squirrel thwarts a would-be burglar.

Ahhh, yes! The attack squirrel. Every home should have one, or at least, that's what an Idaho man whose home was protected by his rescue-squirrel-turned-pet might think. Adam Pearl found Joey, his pet squirrel, in his yard, abandoned as a baby and unable to fend for himself. Pearl took him in and bottle-fed him until he was big enough to eat on his own.

The unique pairing continued for 10 months until a man looking to burglarize Pearl's home got the surprise of a lifetime. He was attacked by the squirrel! The fluffy-tailed critter thwarted the man's plan to rummage through Pearl's belongings.

One can only imagine the confusion and terror of being attacked by something that would've gently eaten out of Snow White's hands. The burglar was apparently after the homeowner's guns and likely wasn't expecting a squirrel to go, well, nuts on him. It gets even better though.

Three different types of blood donations.

The AIDS epidemic that began in the early '80s cast a stigma on all men who have sex with men, regardless of their HIV status. The idea that gay and bisexual men were somehow dangerous to the general public because of a health crisis in their community added to the stigmatization that already came with being LGBTQ.

In 1983, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned all men who have sex with men from donating blood. This rule stood until 2015 when the FDA lifted the lifetime ban for gay and bisexual males and limited it to men who had homosexual sex within the past year.

In 2020, the FDA eased restrictions on men who have sex with men again, due to a blood shortage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The abstinence period was shortened from a year to three months.
