Over a year ago it was claimed that “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” may end because of the highly publicised “drama” with Caitlyn Jenner. The media exposed the report at the time. Now a year has went by, and it is clear that the reports were right.
On June 5, 2017, RadarOnline declared the Kardashians needed to “end their falling flat TVshow.” The piece started with the website asking, “Could ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ be on its last season?” The blog kept up the series “future” was “in question” due to a “colossal ratings crash” and the chat coming from “key relatives” were that “the show should end” in light of the fact that Caitlyn’s continuous fight with Kris Jenner, which was uplifted by the arrival of the transgender star’s memoir, The Secrets Of My Life, was influencing the momager too much emotionally.
What was being said?
“The whole Kardashian family has at long last broken apart,” pronounced a so-called “source,” who guaranteed Kris, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian were “in understanding that ‘it’s enough'” when it came to “KUWTK.” Insisted this alleged source, “It certainly looks like this WILL be the last season we see the family… They are finished being the most famous American family on TV. They all need out and are in talks with [the] E! channel at this very moment!” It was even said that “a few fat cats” at the system concurred the show had “become old.”
In any case, no TV trade publication at the time revealed anything about E! crossing out the show. Moreover, a rep for the family only disclosed to the media on the record that it was “false” the Kardashians needed to end “KUWTK” over Caitlyn and the aftermath from her book. What’s more, it soon turned out to be clear the cameras would keep on rolling.
While the current season, number 13, finished only a couple of days after this report was made, it was not the slightest bit of the program’s “last season.” Season 14 of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” later debuted on October 1. That same month, “KUWTK” was reestablished in another “uber” deal, as Variety put it, that would keep the reality TV stars on the air through 2020. The network even said in an announcement, “We are unbelievably pleased with our association with the Kardashians and they remain a vital piece of the E! family. We anticipate continuing with our cooperation for a considerable length of time to come.”
That was an unmistakable difference to RadarOnline’s request a long time earlier that both the scandalous group and officials needed to “end” the “falling flat” show. What’s more is that weeks prior to the renewal, Kris herself disclosed to Variety that she’s “never had a formal talk about when ‘KUWTK’ may end.” And a long way from being too emotional, making it impossible to proceed with the program because of “drama” with Caitlyn, Kris was seen recording this past April and again in May. Season 15 is on track to make a big appearance this year. Obviously, this story about the show finishing couldn’t have been more wrong.
