You Can't Choose Your Family! The Kardashians' Most Embarrassing Moments

As Kylie Jenner celebrates her 16th birthday, look back at her famous clan's most cringe-worthy escapades

After watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians for eight seasons, we have learned that no topic is off-limits for this crazy family!

From Kris Jenner's um, bathroom issues, to Kim Kardashian's temper tantrums, the Kardashian-Jenner clan isn't afraid to laugh at themselves (and have America laugh along with them).

Here are 12 of our favorite embarrassing moments from the family that we hate to love, but love to watch!

Kris' Pee Problem

Kris has never been one to keep her problems quiet, but her struggles with keeping her leakage under control is an issue we wish she didn't share on national television! We don't know what's more embarrassing about her pee problem -- her freakouts when she's unable to rush to the bathroom or this video of Kylie and Kendall Jenner rapping about her flow.

Kim's Temper Tantrums

When then-husband Kris Humphries throws Kim into the ocean (seriously Kris, what were you thinking?!) Kim loses her diamond earring. Instead of realizing that she could buy another without making a dent in her wallet, she throws a ridiculous temper tantrum. Luckily, Kylie saves the day by finding the gigantic rock -- but not before Kourtney Kardashian chimed in with a few words of reason: "Kim, there's people that are dying."

Kris Jenner's Facelift

When the mother of the bride prepares for her daughter's wedding, that usually includes buying a new dress and sporting a fancy hairdo -- not undergoing major plastic surgery! What better way to upstage Kim on her special day than to get a facelift and reveal it the day of the wedding? But don't worry, Kim -- you have your next wedding to upstage Mama J!

Khloe's Period Demonstration

We cringe for poor Kendall! Not only does she have to share that she just got her period on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but she also has to sit through this super awkward period lecture run by her older sisters. Get ready to join in on Kendall's misery by watching tampon demonstrations and Kris giving birth.

Kris Jenner's Singing Career

Although short-lived, Kris' singing career was a memorable one -- mainly because she was an awful singer! See Kris sing her heart out about turning 30, how much she loves her friends, and how rich she is. We just have one question: Why?

Kim's Singing Career

It looks like Kim, unfortunately, followed in her mother's footsteps -- and it wasn't good! Further proving that the Kardashians' are famous for doing mostly nothing, listen to Kim's one and only song (thank goodness), "Jam (Turn it Up)."

Kim Uses Kourtney's Breast Milk

We want to start by saying, "Ew!" It's one thing to steal your sister's breast milk (actually, that's still gross and weird), but it's another to have her squeeze it onto your leg from her bare breast. We're sure Kim could have used another alternative, like, say, medicine?

Kris Walks in on Scott

We don't know what's worse -- the fact that Scott Disick just walks around the Jenner house naked to let his "thing cool down" or that Kris saw his "family jewels" and seemed to like it.

Kris' Girl Time

Either Kris is going through a midlife crisis or she is trying really hard to embarrass her teenage daughters. We don't know who we're more embarrassed for -- Kris trying to dance and get in on girl talk, or Kendall and Kylie for having to deal with her.

Kourtney Waxes Khloe

What do you do when your husband is visiting and you have no time to get a bikini wax? Have your older sister wax you, of course! Get ready to see Kourtney get up close and personal with Khloe Kardashian's private area. These sisters really have no boundaries!

Kris Gives Kendall an Over-The-Top Sweet 16

The Kardashians are known for making over-the-top spectacles of every occasion (i.e. Kim's wedding). So when Kendall said she didn't want to have a big party for her Sweet 16, what did her mom do? Plan a vacation in the Bahamas without telling Kendall, obviously! Luckily, Kendall got her birthday wish and had a low-key celebration. She even had guests donate toys to sick children at the Children's Hospital in Los Angeles instead of giving her gifts.

Khloe's Dating Drama

Before Khloe married the love of her life, Lamar Odom, her family wondered if she would ever walk down the aisle. So when Kim and Kourtney play cupid by setting her up on blind dates without her permission, the online matches aren't as charming as they had hoped.
