The ladies of the Kardashian-Jenner clan don’t strike us as the type to have much trouble with sleep.
In our minds, they lie down on 80 bajillion thread-count sheets each night for 11 hours of uninterrupted beauty shut-eye, awakening only when an implant shifts or when Kanye starts yelling at his breakfast burrito for not being dope enough.
But apparently, for Kendall Jenner, sleep doesn’t come easy, and it’s beginning to affect her work as someone who has her picture taken for a living,
It’s easy to take all the talk of Kendall’s sleep issues as the height of both First World Problems and a consequence of the annoying tendency of reality shows to milk drama out of the most inane day-to-day problems.
But in fairness, this isn’t your typical insomnia that we’re talking about.
It seems Kendall suffers from sleep paralysis, which is a terrifying-sounding condition in which sufferers wake up unable to move.
Pretty self-explanatory stuff, but her sisters make Kendall describe it to them in the clip below, both because they have to fill up an hour-long episode, and because they’re not exactly the sharpest bulbs:
“Basically, your mind wakes up, but your body is still asleep,” Kendall explains.
“Like, you wake up but nothing can move.”
She goes on to paint a pretty terrifying picture of this nightmarish condition:
“It’s the scariest thing in the entire world,” Kendall tells her sisters.
“You’re freaking out. All you want to do is be able to move, so you’re laying there, and you’re trying to move.”
Unfortunately for Kendall, her sister Kim exists in a constant state of botox-induced sleep paralysis, meaning that she once went to sleep at a plastic surgeon’s office and woke up unable to form facial expressions.
What we’re saying is Kim’s not the one to turn to if you’re looking for genuine sympathy.
But bless her heart, she tries:
“I’ve never heard of sleep paralysis, and I think it sounds like a crazy experience,” Kim tells the camera.
“I feel so bad that she’s been going through this.”
Yeah, there’s a reason Kim never took up acting.
