Damn KJ Back at it again!

So today I was just chilling as you do, watching Desi on Snappy. If you don’t follow Desi Perkins then you clearly are not living. Any ways next thing she is just casually hanging out at Kris Jenners house, with a bunch of other Youtubers and the one and only Kylie Jenner herself.
