Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian Defend Family Brand

Posted: Updated:

Kim Kardashian and sister Khloe Kardashian are speaking out against accusations made this week in the New York Post claiming the Kardashian family's fame is quickly plummeting.

"We face adversity every week and as you all know, we have always tried to take the high road and continue to work hard," Kim wrote on her blog Friday. "But when the media try to manipulate things and write things that are untrue about our business ventures and our shows, it's time to step in and correct the lies."

Kim is referencing the Post's article that claims the reality TV family's brand -- including their paid promotional appearances and reality show ratings -- is losing its popularity.

In addition to calling out the Post, the former Mrs. Kris Humphries thanks Forbes for their favorable article, in which they break down the accusations and set the record straight about the Kardashian brand. In fact, an E! spokesperson told Forbes that ratings for "Kourtney And Kim Take New York" are up 43 percent since last season.

Kim continued to defend her family's brand on her blog.

"As a family we work extremely hard and we are very proud of what we have achieved, and it’s disappointing to see people try to tear that down," she wrote.

Kim's sister Khloe, who has dealt with rumors saying she's not actually a Kardashian this week, also blogged about the accusations.

"As I'm sure you all know, recently our family has been receiving a lot of criticism, which of course has hurt, but luckily we’re a strong bunch and we always have each other’s backs so we didn’t let it get to us too much," she wrote, adding that the article was "really just the straw that broke the camel’s back for me."

So whether you like them or not, it seems the Kardashians are here to stay for the time being -- wedding, divorce and daddy drama included.
