Khloe Kardashian has always been the oddball of the bunch when it comes to the women in her family. From trying to live a life out of the spotlight with a normal marriage to branding herself completely different from her sisters, Khloe Kardashian has always marched to the beat of a different drummer. She has been referred to as the “fat” Kardashian sister in the past, but all of that has changed. Khloe remains on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but has also branched out to do her own reality talk show on a separate network. Kocktails With Khloe was expected to immediately fail, but it has surprised everyone involved with it.
While the FYI network is excited about the ratings and progression of Kocktails With Khloe, it seems Khloe Kardashian isn’t on the same page as the executives. According to Radar Online, Khloe Kardashian is upset that she doesn’t have more control over how the show goes. She is given minimum freedom, and it just isn’t enough. Kardashian is struggling to find guests who aren’t directly associated with the Kardashian family in some way. Out of the few shows that have aired, only Jenna Marbles and Snooki have been non-Kardashian associates. Creative freedom is important to Khloe Kardashian, and she feels more like a co-host than an actual host. Apparently, the network also has final say in which topics the show will address in regards to topics and Twitter feuds. Kardashian feels almost like a pawn in a game, and it just isn’t where she wants to be.
Kocktails With Khloe gave the FYI network a huge shock when ratings soared. There have been various rumors circulating that the show was tanking because of Khloe Kardashian being unreasonable. That is not the case, and the network has confirmed how well the show is doing. It airs on Wednesday nights, and draws in a stellar crowd. The Kardashian family is American royalty whether people like it or not. Khloe Kardashian has so much potential to grow with this show, if only a little creativity was handed off to her. More potential guests need to step up and help her out. Several fans have voiced their opinions about who they would like to see on the show with Kardashian, and Todd Chrisley seems to be among the front runners.
There are high expectations for Khloe Kardashian, especially when so many want to see her fail. While she isn’t completely bummed by Kocktails With Khloe, there is a lot left to be desired. According to Starpulse, Khloe Kardashian just doesn’t feel like the star. This may be a bit of diva behavior, but after living in the shadow of her sisters, who could blame Kardashian for wanting just a little bit more for herself? When Kocktails With Khloe was announced, critics were out in full force bashing the show. The premise is a more modernized talk show, and several of the guests have been high-profile celebrities. It is true that many of them are friends of the Kardashian family, but they are still huge names.
Fans are hoping Khloe Kardashian will stick with the show for a little while longer. After only being on the air a few weeks, it is hard to judge whether or not it could be worth it long term. Kocktails With Khloe has brought a new audience to the FYI network, and they are loving every second of the attention. Kardashian is doing well for herself, but she wants a little bit more. As the next few shows air, there will be plenty more guests and controversial comments to be made. Khloe Kardashian knows what she is doing, and the network would be wise to loosen the reigns on the show just a bit.
