Rob Kardashian is officially returning to Keeping Up With the Kardashians after refusing to film for the E! Network show for two years. The first KUWTK Season 12 sneak peek has been released, and in the clip, we see that Rob is headed back home and he’ll be joined by Lamar Odom for at least one episode. With Rob’s return to reality TV, many fans are wondering if he’ll bring his fiancée Blac Chyna along for the ride.
In the new Season 12 teaser, Rob is seen snuggling up on the couch with his mom Kris Jenner. It looks like the two have made up after the last two years of sparring back and forth about getting him back on Keeping Up With the Kardashians among other things. Rumor has it that Rob didn’t want to be a part of the show because of his weight gain issues. Low self-esteem and the constant pressure from his sisters to do something about his health certainly made it hard for him to get in front of the cameras.

Rob Kardashian has come a long way since the beginning of 2016 and he gives a lot of credit for his success to Blac Chyna. The formerly reclusive reality star has definitely come out of his shell in recent months and shed much of the weight that he gained while reportedly depressed. Rob has turned his health around with the help of Blac after a Christmastime diabetes diagnosis. Despite the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family having a huge beef with Blac Chyna, Kris Jenner has said that she is grateful to the former stripper for helping her son in a time when even she couldn’t get through to him.
As far as Blac Chyna making appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians is concerned, that seems to still be up in the air. Oxygen reported that Blac is in talks with KUWTK execs about possibly making appearances with Rob on the show but that they are still in negotiations. They allege that Blac wants $1 million to show her famous face on the E! Network hit.
While it’s a given that Kylie Jenner will be about as excited to have Blac Chyna on her reality show as she is to have her enemy engaged to her own brother, there’s no denying that putting their drama on TV will be huge for ratings. That’s something that their momager Kris Jenner knows all too well and probably is the reason that appearances by Blac on Keeping Up With the Kardashians are even under consideration.
For those who can’t wait to see Rob Kardashian rejoin his family on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Season 12 starts on May 1. There are also rumors that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are considering a spin-off of some sort or at least a wedding special in order to cash in on their upcoming marriage.
Fans can also expect to see the Kardashian sisters confront Lamar Odom in the coming episodes, with Kourtney Kardashian even telling him how lucky he is to have survived a near-fatal overdose at a Nevada brothel late last year. In the short clip released by the E! Network, Kourtney is seen telling Lamar, “People’s prayers for you saved your life.”
There had been rumors that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom might even be trying to salvage their marriage but that was before Odom was caught drinking at a sports bar in Los Angeles. Now there is speculation that they will be going ahead with their divorce and that Kris Jenner is pushing for their marriage to end sooner rather than later.
