Before their new show has even aired, Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are being accused of faking scenes for ratings. While the couple scored a reported $5 million deal to document their journey towards parenthood in Rob & Chyna, insiders reported that the reality stars “were just filming the scenes for the show,” as they house-hunted amid rumors that Blac Chyna wanted an all-new home before the baby is born.
A source close to Rob and Chyna confirmed, however, that the search for a new home is completely fake, and Kardashian and his fiancée are “not going anywhere,” especially since Kris Jenner purchased the $2 million home for Rob in a trust, meaning he can’t sell it anytime soon. While it’s not clear why the home was purchased in a trust, insiders say that Jenner isn’t sure that Rob really is the father of Blac Chyna’s baby, and might have wanted to protect the major asset.
According to Radar Online, Rob had only lived in the home for seven days before the house hunting scenes for Rob & Chyna were filled, which is further indication that the reality show isn’t really based on reality. Kardashian’s new luxury home is located in Jenner’s gated Calabasas, California, neighborhood, and its sudden purchase caused quite the stir between Rob and his sisters, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney, if scenes from Keeping Up With The Kardashians are to be believed.
In one scene from Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe and Kim argue with their mother that she shouldn’t help Rob buy a mansion when he’s a grown adult. At the time, the Kardashian sisters seemingly didn’t know that Blac Chyna was pregnant, and didn’t want their brother hanging around her.
Kris, however, has been accused of knowing at the time that she was going to have a new grandchild, and was helping Rob establish his family, particularly since he was so happy to be with Blac Chyna and to become a new dad.
While Rob and Blac Chyna scored a cool $5 million for their new reality show, some insiders are saying that the reason there’s a spin off reality show at all is because Kris Jenner wouldn’t pay Blac Chyna enough to appear on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. A source close to the negotiations told Radar Online that talks between Chyna and Rob Kardashian’s mother failed because “Kris was not offering Blac the kind of money she wants.”
So, because the “momager” and Blac Chyna couldn’t come to an agreement, Rob Kardashian and his fiancée decided “that having their own spin-off show under the direction of Kris Jenner is the best way for them to profit off of this entire situation,” according to an insider close to Blac and Kardashian.
It’s not the first time that the Kardashian family has been accused of faking scenes for ratings and good drama. While it’s not news that reality shows aren’t unscripted, it’s rare to get an insider to admit it.
But just last year, Keeping Up With The Kardashians producer Russell Jay testified during a court case that at least two scenes from the reality show were “scripted, reshot, or edited” so Kris Humphries, who was married to Kim at the time, would look like the bad guy after Kardashian decided she wanted to divorce him.
In fact, during one scene in which Kim famously cries, making a face that inspired several memes on social media, the producer suggested Kardashian used a “tear stick” to cry on cue, while the proposal scenes involving Kim and Humphries had to be shot again because Kardashian didn’t like how she looked on camera.
