Spend just five minutes watching a Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode and immediately, you’ll be immersed in a language unique to the Kardashian-Jenner family. Khloé, Kim, Kourtney, and the rest of the KarJenners have formed their own way of communicating with each other over the course of the past 10 years of the series. In fact, it’s one of the things KUWTK fans love most.
One such fan endeared by the Kardashian way of life (and speech!) is Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown. While making an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, the 13-year-old actor positively gushed about her guilty pleasure: Kylie, Kendall, and the likes.
“It’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians all the way,” she told Jimmy Fallon of her favorite must-watch show. “I love them. I love them! I really do. I am obsessed with them. I follow them on social media. I think they are just like, really great. They’re so entertaining!”
“They have their own like, language. Instead of saying, ‘I swear,’ they’re like, ‘Bible!’ And then they’re like, ‘OKURRR!'” she continued. “It means like, ‘OK’ but it’s ‘OKURRR!'”

It’s a token Kardashian term that originates from people in court having to swear over the Bible that they’re telling the truth. It means a person is telling the truth; it also acts as a way of discerning whether or not a person is lying.
Example: “Is this a joke or are you telling the truth? Say Bible.”
A liar wouldn’t say Bible. Someone who was confident that they were telling the truth would have no problem saying the word.
A shortened way of saying, “suspect” or “suspicious.” It usually refers to a person who is not to be trusted. On her app, Kim clarified the term as describing someone who is “acting shady as f—-.”
Example: “I read Caitlyn Jenner’s book and she is so sus.”
Jane and Suzanne
No, there isn’t anyone on the series named Jane Kardashian or Suzanne Kardashian. However, Jane and Suzanne are in full force — especially at the gym. After KhloMoney’s divorce and Kourtney’s breakup from longtime boyfriend Scott Disick, the pair of sisters became each other’s workout partners. Working out together everyday drew Khlo and Kourt to channel two female fitness icons: Jane Fonda and Suzanne Somers.
“I’m not sure how we decided who was whom but Kourtney’s Jane Fonda and I’m Suzanne Somers,” Khloé has said. “We came up with this when we started working out together because we felt like fitness gurus in our own right.”
Well, we basically can’t explain it more perfectly than Millie Bobby Brown already has but we’ll give it a go. It’s an emphatic way of saying, “OK!” and it might also be a hybrid of both “okay” and “sure.” Once you get to the end of the word, you role your “r” and usually direct the pointer finger to the sky.
This one actually has a lot of meanings. “Damn, Gina” is a reference to the 1990s sitcom Martin. In the series, “Damn, Gina” is what the protagonist Martin says to the character Gina, either when she looks attractive or is annoying him.
But it’s taken on a double meaning for the Kardashians thanks to Kim’s husband. On Kanye’s album The Life of Pablo, Chance the Rapper is featured on the song “Ultralight Beam.” In his verse, he raps, “Treat the demons just like Pam / I mean I f— with your friends / But damn, Gina.”
Khloé uses the positive version of the phrase, saying it when someone looks good, hot, or when she’s impressed by someone’s actions. As in, “Kim Kardashian — damn, gina! Looking hot tonight!”
Sound familiar? That’s because it’s yet another Kardashian word tied to Kimmy’s husband, Ye. “Waves” was one of the titles for the album Kanye eventually was named The Life of Pablo but the KarJenners still like to keep the term up. A wave is “the current trend, what’s cool right now; what all the cool kids are super into at the moment,” Kim explains.
The term can also be used as an adjective, ie. wavy. As in, during the epic Twitter feud of 2016 in which Kanye West claimed to own Wiz Khalifa’s child, Wiz responded that Ye was “not wavy.”
Ah, the bloop. Originally founded by Nene Leakes, the bloop is a random word that can be used at any moment, for any reason. Kim explains that it’s, “Essentially meaningless. a ‘bloop’ is a space filler that can be used at any time, for any reason.”
To quote Drake: What’s that? Facts? Actually, Drake’s not the only rapper to tap the term. Kanye released a song called “Facts” in 2016 and Kim explains the song was “inspired to illuminate certain truths to the world.” On her app, she further listed the definition of the word as “the truth, the real deal, what really happened.”
As in, used in a sentence: “What Taylor Swift said happened was a lie. What Kim and Kanye said happened is facts.”
It’s about to get deep and philosophical right now. “The general feelings that someone or something gives you,” says Kim. “A vibe is not concrete, but rather a mood you feel from other people and your surroundings.” A vibe could also refer to fashion, as in when Kim posts three photos of herself in three different gray getups and writes, “Gray vibes.” It can also be used as a verb to explain why Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t get along with the rest of the KarJenners anymore.
As in when Kourtney infamously said of Caitlyn, “The personality just doesn’t vibe with ours.”
