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."

Anne Hebert, a marketing writer living in Austin, TX, jokes that her closest friends think that her hobby is "low-key harassment for social good". She authors a website devoted entirely to People Doing Good Things. She's hosted a yearly canned food drive with up to 150 people stopping by to donate, resulting in hundreds of pounds of donations to take to the food bank for the past decade.

"I try to share info in a positive way that gives people hope and makes them aware of solutions or things they can do to try to make the world a little better," she said.

For now, she's encouraging people through a barrage of persistent, informative, and entertaining emails with one goal in mind: getting people to VOTE. The thing about emailing people and talking about politics, according to Hebert, is to catch their attention—which is how lice got involved.

"When my kids were in elementary school, I was class parent for a year, which meant I had to send the emails to the other parents. As I've learned over the years, a good intro will trick your audience into reading the rest of the email. In fact, another parent told me that my emails always stood out, especially the one that started: 'We need volunteers for the Valentine's Party...oh, and LICE.'"

Hebert isn't working with a specific organization. She is simply trying to motivate others to find ways to plug in to help get out the vote.

Lately, Twitter has been a rough place for famous Chrises. First Evans had his day on the trending side bar, and now it's Pratt's turn. With the way things are going, we cringe for what's in store for Hemsworth.

Earlier this week, Warrior Nun writer Amy Berg posted a photo on Twitter of four famous Chrises - Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine, and Chris Pratt. "One has to go," Berg captioned the photo.

Pratt started trending as he was quickly dubbed the "worst Chris." And things just got worse from there. Until some real-life heroes stepped in and tried to address the situation, defending their co-star and friend.

Glenda moved to Houston from Ohio just before the pandemic hit. She didn't know that COVID-19-related delays would make it difficult to get her Texas driver's license and apply for unemployment benefits. She quickly found herself in an impossible situation — stranded in a strange place without money for food, gas, or a job to provide what she needed.

Alone, hungry, and scared, Glenda dialed 2-1-1 for help. The person on the other end of the line directed her to the Houston-based nonprofit Bread of Life, founded by St. John's United Methodist pastors Rudy and Juanita Rasmus.

For nearly 30 years, Bread of Life has been at the forefront of HIV/AIDS prevention, eliminating food insecurity, providing permanent housing to formerly homeless individuals and disaster relief.

Glenda sat in her car for 20 minutes outside of the building, trying to muster up the courage to get out and ask for help. She'd never been in this situation before, and she was terrified.

When she finally got out, she encountered Eva Thibaudeau, who happened to be walking down the street at the exact same time. Thibaudeau is the CEO of Temenos CDC, a nonprofit multi-unit housing development also founded by the Rasmuses, with a mission to serve Midtown Houston's homeless population.

Back in 2017, when white supremacist Richard Spencer was socked in the face by someone wearing all black at Trump's inauguration, it launched an online debate, "Is it OK to punch a Nazi?"

The essential nature of the debate was whether it was acceptable for people to act violently towards someone with repugnant reviews, even if they were being peaceful. Some suggested people should confront them peacefully by engaging in a debate or at least make them feel uncomfortable being Nazi in public.

A photo of Joe Biden hugging and kissing his only living son, Hunter, is circulating after Newsmax TV host John Cardillo shared it on Twitter with the caption, "Does this look like an appropriate father/son interaction to you?"

The question is clearly meant to be a dig at Biden, whose well-documented life in politics includes many examples of both his deep love for his family and his physical expressions of affection. While his opponents have cherry-picked photos to try to paint him as "creepy," those who know him well—and who are in some of those viral images—defend Biden's expressions of affection as those of a close friend and grandfatherly figure. (And in fact, at least one photo of Biden holding and kissing a child's face was of him and his grandson at his son Beau's funeral, taken as a still shot from this video.)

Everyone has their own level of comfort with physical space and everyone's line of what's appropriate when it comes to physical affection are different, but some accusations of inappropriateness are just...sad. And this photo with this caption is one of those cases.
