The Kardashian/Jenner clan are notorious for making headlines, all day, every day. And, today is no different. I can’t remember a day where the world wasn’t talking the group of ladies, and I have to say, I love it. Say what you will about the Kardashians, they also always do manage to keep us entertained.
To fill you in, if you haven’t already been Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kris Jenner recently took to Instagram to tease a snippet of her daughter, Kendall Jenner, seemingly coming out with a big hush-hush kind of secret. If there's anything Kris Jenner does best, it's create hype for her daughters and, that's exactly what she did here.

I’m so proud of my darling @KendallJenner for being so brave and vulnerable. Seeing you share your most raw story in order to make a positive impact for so many people and help foster a positive dialogue is a testament to the incredible woman you’ve become. Make sure to watch Kendall’s Twitter on Sunday night to find out what I’m talking about and be prepared to be moved. #bethechange #shareyourstory #changetheconversation #proudmom #finallyasolution #authenticity #mydaughterinspiresme #getready
In the video, the model talks about how she wants to help people now that she’s older, and connect with those who are experiencing the same thing she is. She stated, “Now that I’m 22, and I have this whole thing behind me, I can speak to so many people, and just be like, I can help you, and it’s okay. I experience it, and I’m very normal. I understand you. Like, I can connect with you. And, try and help.”
She had us convinced and majorly intrigued, as there was a lot of talk regarding what Kendall may have been hinting at, and let’s just say, there were some crazy ideas being thrown around. She’s been known to suffer from sleep paralysis and major anxiety attacks, as we know from show. So, some fans assumed she may have been alluding to that.
The “raw” reveal however, proved very different.
Days later, Kendall took to Twitter to announce that she was the new face of Proactiv and that her big secret was that she has been struggling with acne. This is the moment where we pause for effect…
Now, don't get us wrong. We're not saying it isn't a big issue for a lot of people. It is. But, we were expecting earth-shattering, ground-breaking-from-right-under-us kind of news, Kendall. So, the announcement was a bit (VERY) lacklustre for us.
In the video shared by Proactiv's official Instagram account, she mentions how it was at the 2018 Golden Globes, where the media were particularly harsh towards her, pointing out her acne-prone skin. In announcing her big secret, she mentions that “the magic was proactive”.
Atta girl, Kendall. That’s the way to respond to jealous critics, who try to shame you; hit them back with some good old fashioned quality sponsored content.
While we think that making such a statement takes courage, some weren't as sold, or impresssed...
Here's what some fans had to say about the news:

We'll be patiently waiting to see what momager Kris has to say on the matter. Who knows, maybe we'll get another #proudmum post?
Either way, good on Kendall for taking action, and for reaching out about something that meant a lot to her. We have major respect for you, girl!
