Most of us have to tune in to E! to keep up with the Kardashians, but some lucky individuals have made it to the inner circle by becoming friends with the First Family of Reality TV. And even though they don't have Kardashian or Jenner as a surname, these pals are quickly becoming stars in their own right. Here are some of the Kardashian-Jenners' besties, some of whom aren't in the A-list… yet.
Kim Kardashian's friends Jonathan Cheban and La La Anthony are her "OG Crew." Few fans knew Jonathan before Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but many knew LaLa from her time as an MTV VJ. Lesser-known friends of Kim's include KUWTK producer Carla DiBello and childhood friend Allison Statter — "Allison is like the first person that I would call if there was, like, a huge family drama, like, before anyone," Kim once said on her website — while her more high-profile friends include Nicole Richie and Rachel Roy.
Kylie Jenner, arguably second most famous family member at this point, has a number of friends who've since become celebs — including BFFs-turned-roommates Jordyn Woods and Anastasia "Stassi" Karanikolaou. But she has also befriended folks like singer Harry Hudson, wig stylist Tokyo, and assistant Victoria Villarroel Gamero. And Kylie's sister Kendall is practically attached to the hip with rising supermodel Gigi Hadid after meeting her on Twitter at age 14.
Back on the Kardashian side of the family, Khloé Kardashian has stayed close with two of her childhood friends: twin sisters and Dash Dolls fixtures Malika and Khadijah Haqq. ("I couldn't love them anymore than I do!" Khloé once wrote on Instagram.) Meanwhile, sister Kourtney Kardashian calls former Real Housewives of Miami star Larsa Pippen her "boo." And Kourtney revealed bro Rob Kardashian's best friend of many years is music manager J.J. Corsini, whom she says is "like a brother" to the rest of the family. (Kourt had some explaining to do, however, when she ended up in bed with J.J. after a night of partying on Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami.)
There you have it, people. Since a lot of these confidants are longtime friends, you'd probably need a time machine to break into the inner circle now… But hey, you never know whom these reality stars might befriend next!
