According to People, during the season premiere of The Real on Monday, Kourtney admitted how intimidating her younger sister’s billionaire status can be.
“Probably subconsciously it makes us feel like, ‘When is it enough?’” Kourtney told her co-hosts Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry, Loni Love, and Adrienne Bailon Houghton.
“And that’s a thing I always think to myself, ‘When is it enough?’ Because I don’t like missing out on certain things like doing my kids’ homework or certain after-school activities for different things like that,” Kardashian went on to explain.
Kylie, 22, had been named the world’s youngest billionaire by Forbes, in the magazine’s annual Billionaires 2019 ranking in March.
“I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future,” Kylie told Forbes. “But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”
Kylie Cosmetic expanded into Ulta last year, this drove the company’s revenue to shoot up 9 percent. Last year’s revenue estimated to $360 million, the overall valuation of the brand estimated to be $900 million, Forbes calls this a “conservative” report. Kylie owns the entire company solely, having launched it in 2015 with three Lip Kits.
Kylie doesn’t only earn money from her cosmetics though, she also gets them from her extensive assortment of product endorsements, her KUWTK checks, the Kendall + Kylie clothing line, as well as her partnership with Adidas.

Each of her sisters has their own success story as well. Kim has her new shapewear, SKIMS, and Khloe has Good American denim. Kourtney has a lifestyle brand Poosh, and Kendall has been named the world’s highest-paid model in 2018. These reality stars are taking their careers farther than TV.
Kourtney Kardashian was asked on Monday’s episode of The Real if she ever thought her family would be this successful. To which she answered, “We didn’t even think about it. We just hit the ground running … We just kind of did it and it happened so quickly, and I don’t think we even thought about it.”
Will The Kids Of The Kardashian Family Have The Same Fate As Their Parents?
She definitely gives the credit to Keeping Up With The Kardashians for her success, she won’t force her kids to live their lives in the public eye as well. “If they want to do it,” Kourtney, who has sons Mason, 9, and Reign, 4, and daughter Penelope, 7, with her ex Scott Disick, said. “I definitely would never push them to do it and it’s not something that I’m hoping they’re going to do. Whatever makes them happy I think.”
According to E!, she herself has felt at times that she wished the family wasn’t in the public eye. Even though her family is always there to help when things are getting hard.
“Khloe always tries to instill in all of us is let’s wake up and be so grateful. Grateful that I’m filming in my house or going to Khloe’s house for the day or filming with my sister or my mom or my kids and so I do feel like we all have our moments where we are like ‘I hate this’ or whatever,” Admitted Kourtney. ” Currently, I am happy, very into my blessings, and feeling really good. I’ve definitely had my moments because life is short.”
Only the future will tell what is in store for the Kardashians, kids and adults alike.
