Rob Kardashian appears to be back to his old ways. Following reports of his possible return to Keeping Up With The Kardashians for the series’ currently airing 11th season, Rob Kardashian has been steering clear of photographers and of social media, as new sneak peek of tomorrow night’s episode show no sign of the reclusive former reality star.
On November 20, Cambio shared a preview of the November 22 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and just like the Season 11 trailer, Rob Kardashian was not seen, nor mentioned, in the clip. Instead, the clip featured Kim Kardashian and her sister Kourtney, as well as Kourtney’s ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick, who stayed the night at Kourtney’s house the night before, much to Kim’s dismay.

While Rob Kardashian’s season 11 return is still possible, the odds continue to decrease with each week.
News of Rob Kardashian’s potential return to Keeping Up With The Kardashians first began in September, when Us Weekly claimed Rob Kardashian had filmed scenes for the new installment. “Rob Kardashian Has Lost More Than 15 Pounds and Is Preparing to Make a Comeback,” read the magazine’s headline.
Rob Kardashian has “already lost more than 15 pounds,” an insider close to the sock designer told the magazine. “[Rob Kardashian] has been sticking to the plan Gunnar [Peterson] created for him, and is getting meal delivery from a chef.”
According to the magazine, Rob Kardashian was being supported by several family members, including Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kanye West, as he attempted to get himself back to his previous weight. Rob Kardashian was also said to have been motivated by the money he’d receive upon returning to the E! Network reality show.
“[Rob Kardashian]’s not getting paid if he doesn’t film,” another source added to Us Weekly, claiming Rob Kardashian had started filming for season 11. “[Rob Kardashian] has a $2 million-a-year contract. He realized he couldn’t give up this huge opportunity.”
In addition to rumors of a return to E!, Rob Kardashian has also been making headlines lately for his decision to move out of his sister Khloe’s home after living with her for the last few years. Although it is unclear why Rob Kardashian moved, a Celebrity Dirty Laundry report claimed there may have been tension between the two siblings due to Khloe’s recent comments about Rob Kardashian’s depression.
“[Rob Kardashian] said enough was enough and he moved out of Khloe’s house ASAP. When Kris Jenner tried to mend fences between [Rob Kardashian] and his sisters, he lashed out at her and announced he was not posing in the family Christmas card,” a source told CDL on November 21.

As Hollywood Life revealed earlier this week, Rob Kardashian has backed out of the Kardashian family Christmas card, claiming that while he’s reportedly made some progress with his weight issues, he’s still not comfortable being seen publicly — even in photographs.
Rob Kardashian’s refusal to participate in his family’s annual Christmas card is just one of disappointment his family has been dealt with in recent weeks. Earlier this month, after being begged by his sisters to attend, Rob Kardashian was a no-show to his mother Kris Jenner’s over-the-top 60th birthday celebration in Los Angeles, which was attended by the rest of her family and her celebrity friends.
On November 20, Hollywood Life reported news of the Kardashian/Jenner family’s Thanksgiving plans, revealing Khloe will be hosting a bash at her Los Angeles home. No word yet on whether Rob Kardashian will be seen during the event.
