A magical proposal and difficult divorce decision may not be enough to save Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In fact, ratings for the show’s ninth season are at an all-time low, and with more than one family member threatening to pull away, Kris Jenner fears the seemingly inevitable cancellation.
Even the famous family’s most popular member, Kim Kardashian, is contemplating leaving the reality series. “Kanye [West] doesn’t want her to be on the show anymore,” an insider tells Star. “He thinks it’s tacky, and she needs to move on now that she’s going to be his wife.”
Another insider adds that Bruce Jenner is also “done with the show,” and wants to continue undergoing his physical transformation (what many believe to be a gender reassignment) in private.
Meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian is focused on her longtime partner, Scott Disick, who recently lost both of his parents, and Khloe Kardashian is spending more and more time partying since filing for divorce from Lamar Odom. At this point, Kris sees Kendall Jenner’s budding modeling career as her only chance to save the show — but reality TV may not be in the 18-year-old’s life plan.
“Advisors have been telling Kendall that she’ll never be taken seriously in the world of fashion if she is seen as a reality star,” a source explains. “She knows how badly the show reflects on her.”
