Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been on the air for 13 seasons and counting, but new rumors suggest that the ongoing season may be the last before KUWTK gets canceled. The reason, apparently, may have something to do with the dramatic fallout that followed Caitlyn Jenner’s allegations on her recently-released autobiography.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians cancellation rumors come from Radar Online, which wrote that per insider information, some of the more prominent members of the Kardashian family believe that their reality show has run its course. This is due to matriarch Kris Jenner’s “meltdown” after learning what her ex-husband Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner wrote in her memoir, The Secrets of My Life. Some of Caitlyn’s more damning allegations included her claim that she always felt uncomfortable having sex with Kris when they were married.
Interestingly, Radar Online’s unnamed source observed that there’s only one person in the family — Kim Kardashian — who’s against KUWTK’s cancellation.
“The entire Kardashian clan has finally fallen apart and at least three major players—Kris, Kourtney, and Khloe— are in agreement that ‘it’s enough.’ Kim is the only one who disagrees.”
“It definitely looks like this WILL be the last season we see the family!”, Radar Online‘s source continued.
Last month, the Los Angeles Times wrote about Caitlyn Jenner’s autobiography and how her ex-wife didn’t take things well at all after reading what had been alleged against her. While Caitlyn had nothing but praise for Kris’ business skills and connections in the entertainment business, among other things, she also claimed to have told Kris before they got married that she was already uncomfortable living as a man. This included admitting her “gender problems” to Kris before they would have sex.
Kris Jenner would complain about these accusations on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, telling daughters Khloe and Kim Kardashian that Caitlyn’s memoir did her a huge disservice, and that nothing on it “made sense.”
“I read it and basically the only nice thing she had to say was that I was great socially at a party one time…. Everything she says is all made up. Why does everything have to be that ‘Kris is such a b**ch?'”
About a month later, it would seem that Kris is still upset about the Caitlyn Jenner autobiography, and that may ultimately prove to be the catalyst for KUWTK‘s cancellation, Radar Online wrote. The publication’s source said that Kris Jenner is now “at the point of nearing a breakdown,” having seen several doctors and having taken antidepressants on a daily basis to help her cope with the drama Caitlyn’s book had caused her. That’s been a huge cause of concern for her daughters, who are reportedly worried that their usually-strong mom is going through such emotional distress.
“The girls have become VERY concerned about her because she’s been acting erratic unstable and totally different. She’s crying all the time. She’s depressed and slipping more and more every day.”
Radar Online claims that the real-life Kris and Caitlyn Jenner drama hasn’t just convinced Kris that KUWTK should be canceled. This time, her older daughters, with Kim being the notable exception, are reportedly in agreement with her. Further fanning the fires of speculation is Radar‘s claim that almost everyone wants out of the show, and that cancellation talks with Keeping Up with the Kardashians‘ parent network E! are ongoing at the moment. It’s not an arrangement E! seems to be comfortable with, due to KUWTK‘s popularity and longevity, but the network is supposedly thinking of having the show “go out slowly,” instead of abruptly and with lots of fanfare.
While Radar Online made several references to how Kim Kardashian supposedly isn’t taking the rumored KUWTK cancellation lightly, and how her family sees her as “selfish” for it, the show’s fate may all be decided by Kris Jenner’s health and well-being. Radar noted that Kris is “really all the family has,” and with the Caitlyn situation making things “ugly and dangerous” for the momager, the wisest thing to do at the end of the day may be to cancel a show that’s reportedly stopped being fun.
