Kris Jenner is reportedly asking Caitlyn to return to Keeping Up With The Kardashians in an attempt to save the long-running reality show. However, the momager’s request might come with a price, and it’s a hefty one.
In a recent report by RadarOnline, it has been revealed that the Kardashian matriarch was pleased with the show’s sudden boost in ratings after it aired her “bitter battle” with ex-husband Caitlyn Jenner. Apparently, the unexpected surge in ratings opened an opportunity for Keeping Up With The Kardashians to have another season, the gossip outlet revealed.
It has been alleged that the 61-year-old socialite wants to increase, if not maintain, the show’s ratings by pushing more of Caitlyn’s drama into the next season. The outlet even claimed that Kris already approached the transgender icon and asked her to “put their differences aside for the sake of the family.”
However, it seemed like Caitlyn Jenner was not having any of it unless it comes with a hefty price tag. RadarOnline cited an insider who revealed that Caitlyn was not convinced by Kris’ reasoning. Apparently, the former Olympian believes that Kris only wants to save the show for herself.
“Caitlyn knows Kris’s intentions. She basically told her, ‘Show me the money!'”
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode, which featured Kris and Caitlyn Jenner’s nasty conflict about the latter’s memoir, The Secrets Of My Life, recorded a whopping 175 percent increase in ratings. According to reports, the boost landed the show in the second spot for the highest-rated cable show in its time slot on Sunday evening.
It can be recalled that the reality show, which has been airing for 13 seasons, reportedly got off to a rough start earlier this year with a continuing decline in viewership. Reports revealed that Keeping Up With The Kardashians raked in 1.5 million views an episode; a far cry from its 10.5 million viewers back in the day.
Surprisingly, despite Kim’s traumatic Paris robbery and its emotional aftermath, the dramatic moments did not appear to be enough to increase their ratings.
Meanwhile, Gossip Copdebunked claims that Kris Jenner wants Caitlyn to help save Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The site revealed that a representative for Caitlyn exclusively confirmed that the rumors are “not true.”
