Is Kendall Jenner retiring from her modeling career just as it’s beginning to take off? According to the newest reports, 19-year-old Kendall Jenner feels “immense pressure” staying skinny enough to be competitive in her field, and is pondering the likelihood of a career switch.

According to the latest reports, the pressures of Kendall Jenner’s modeling career–dietary and fashion restrictions, to say nothing of the crazy travel schedule and hectic publicity–are taking their toll on the second-youngest Jenner. Insiders state that Kendall Jenner quitting modeling is a very real possibility indeed.

Said the insider,


Kendall is feeling immense pressure to stay model skinny. Although Kendall has been blessed with amazing genes, she still has to diet and restrict what she eats to stay as skinny as she’s supposed to walk on runways and be in high fashion magazines. It’s really hard on her and sometimes she just feels like quitting all together.


In addition, the fact that Kylie Jenner has no such concerns irritates Kendall Jenner to no end. According to the same friend of Kendall Jenner’s, “Kylie eats whatever she wants and rubs it right in Kendall’s face. They will go out to eat and Kendall with order some kale with only lemon juice as dressing while Kylie will order a pizza and ice cream for dessert, laughing the whole time at her sister’s misery.”

So–what else would a retired Kendall Jenner do? Well, for starters, she and Kylie Jenner are reportedly in talks with several networks for an official spin-off from Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The two haven’t announced their departure from KUWTK just yet, but rumors of their desire to move on have been flying for months; given the success of Caitlyn Jenner’s spinoff I Am Cait, it seems at least possible that we’ll see a Kendall and Kylie Jenner-based reality program on television at some point in the fairly near future.

There’s also the Kendall and Kylie Jenner fashion line, which the sisters teased on social media all summer long before finally announcing a proper launch. So far, there isn’t much product on offer; Kendall Jenner’s long relationship with PacSun has been one of the most successful in the company’s history, though, and, because of her popularity on social media, a Kendall Jenner clothing line is bound to do booming business in at least the short term.
