In what might be the understatement of the century, the Kardashians are pretty used to attention and being in the spotlight. They鈥檝e made an empire out of making people care deeply about their day-to-day lives, largely because of how much of it they share not only through their long-running reality show, KUWTK, but on their own personal social media accounts, some of the biggest in entertainment.

But ever since Kim鈥檚 terrifying gunpoint robbery in Paris last month, she鈥檚 been social media silent, and the rest her family have scaled back their (and Kim鈥檚) own potentially privacy-compromising output. And smartly so.

That鈥檚 not to say the KarJenner krew haven鈥檛 still been racking up their share of headlines 鈥 ones that increasingly have us wondering just WTF is going on with our Kweens.

One of the strangest things of late was the update last Friday on Kim鈥檚 website (her friends and family have been updating it for her) of her family鈥檚 Halloween photos. They were posted by her brother Rob on the very day after he had his first kid, the adorable Dream Renee, with Blac Chyna. These were the first officially released photos since Kim鈥檚 robbery, and the timing couldn鈥檛 have been stranger.

And speaking of Dream, Rob and Chyna鈥檚 accounts were instantly flooded with pictures of the baby聽(a far cry from Kim keeping pics of North and Saint private for weeks after their birth. Little Dream had Snapchat filters applied to her face before she could open her eyes and then Chyna started a Twitter account in the baby鈥檚 name, posting a pic of herself breastfeeding and writing in the voice of the baby.

Then, in opposite land, Kendall actually deleted her crazy-popular Instagram account, later appearing on the Ellen show to explain that it was a temporary 鈥渄igital detox.鈥 (Photo via Lisa Maree Williams/Getty)

Kourtney even caused some commotion this week with some revealing vacation pics of her and ex Scott Disick, leading people to think they鈥檙e back together 鈥 or at least aren鈥檛 shy about letting us think they are.

Is this series of strange stories a calculated media move we don鈥檛 know the end game to just yet (Kris trying to distract from Rob and Chyna鈥檚 baby/drama?), or is it a sign of something else? We can鈥檛 help but think that even more than matriarch Kris, Kim is the glue that holds this group together, and without her lighting their paths, they鈥檝e gone a little astray. Kim 鈥 we need you back!
