Keeping Up with Kimoji: See the Hilarious Reality TV Inspirations for Kim Kardashian's New Emojis

Kim Kardashian West released an update of her popular app Thursday


For the reigning queen of reality TV, art imitates life.

Kim Kardashian West released a new, even more NSFW pack of Kimoji on Thursday, and we’re already obsessed.

The emojis, stickers and GIFs should look familiar to longtime Keeping Up with the Kardashians viewers, with a few recreating iconic moments from the series’ 11 seasons and countless spinoffs.

Check out our scholarly analysis below:

Exhibit A

The new “ugly cry face” Kimoji sticker is a major improvement on the original and more closely mirrors one of Kim’s most infamous tearful moments: When she confessed she no longer loved her husband of 72 days, barking basketball player Kris Humphries, during season 2 of Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

Exhibit B

We are truly #blessed to live in a world where there are now Kimoji GIFs, and this animated reenactment of Kim slapping Khloé with her oversized (obviously designer) purse and warning, “Don’t be f—ing rude,” after hearing her talk some sisterly smack about her becoming a diva during season 2 of KUWTK. (Warning: The video above includes crude language … as does the actual Kimoji.)

Exhibit C

Okay, so those are probably Kim’s hands making it rain with a stack of cash, but we fantasize about her shading Scott Disick for drunkenly shoving a $100 bill down a waiter’s throat during a Las Vegas bender in season 4.

Exhibit D

This one’s up for debate. Kim could be referencing that time momager Kris Jenner crashed her pole-dancing exercise class with, of all people, BLAC CHYNA (Were we ever so innocent?!) in season 9 … or when a young Kylie Jenner shocked her sister by channeling the Pussycat Dolls on her mother’s stripper pole. Kardashian kids, they grow up so fast.

KUWTK airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on E!
