Rumors have been flying that Rob Kardashian is ready to return to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and he’s bringing his girlfriend, Blac Chyna, with him.
After several years out of the spotlight, Kardashian has emerged from seclusion and begun to change his lifestyle. Rob has reportedly long struggled against weight and depression issues, but after a health scare and diabetes diagnosis in December, Kardashian has begun to change his lifestyle. As part of that change, Rob has returned to the public eye — and now, rumor has it — he’s ready to return to the spotlight.
Of course, as a big part of Rob’s life, Blac Chyna is prepared to appear in some KUWTK scenes as well — but only under specific circumstances. According to Hollywood Life, Blac Chyna has yet to sign a contract with Keeping Up With the Kardashians producers because she’s still haggling over compensation — and who she’ll appear in scenes with.

According to an unnamed source for Hollywood Life, Blac is more comfortable appearing with some Kardashian-Jenner sisters than others, and she’s flat out refusing to appear in scenes with a few members of the family.
“[Blac] wants to shoot scenes with Rob for KUWTK, but she is having trouble agreeing to terms with the producers, so she hasn’t signed a contract yet,” the Hollywood Life source reported. “Blac has a list of demands the producers aren’t willing to agree with. Besides the financial compensation, Blac also has an issue of who she will appear in scenes with. She is more comfortable around some of the sisters than others, and she says she has strong feelings about working with Tyga and Kylie [Jenner].”
If she wants to shoot scenes for Keeping Up With the Kardashians with Rob, Blac Chyna is in a precarious position. Blac has a long history with Tyga (and even a 3-year-old son with the rapper), which makes her relationship with Kylie complicated. Tyga and Blac Chyna were once engaged, but ultimately split when Tyga began cheating on Blac Chyna with Kylie Jenner, who was only 17 at the time. Kylie and Tyga have been together off and on ever since. At least, that’s the story Blac Chyna tells.

Because Blac Chyna believes Kylie stole her man, Blac has gone out of her way to repeatedly slam Jenner on her social media accounts.
Understandably, the relationship between the two women isn’t great, and neither is the relationship between Blac and her ex, Tyga. But, as Hollywood Life notes, Chyna may have to move beyond her dislike of the couple if she wants to use KUWTK to launch her television career.
“She knows that if she wants to land her spin-off with Rob, which they have been taking meetings about, she needs to settle to terms with the KUWTK producers and Kris Jenner. So, she will likely sign something soon and start working on her TV career.”
Because of her relationship with some of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, Keeping Up With the Kardashians scenes with Blac promise to be filled with drama, given that many of the Kardashian family members were unhappy to hear of Rob’s relationship with Blac Chyna. A spin-off of KUWTK could be drama-filled, as well, since there are already rumors swirling about a Rob Kardashian-Blac Chyna baby.
What do you think of Blac Chyna’s demands that she avoid filming KUWTK scenes with Kylie Jenner or Tyga? Do you think she should get over her dislike of the couple and film what she’s told to film, or do you think she should stick to her guns?
