Kim Kardashian will talk about her divorce drama on the final season of KUWTK

kim 10203

Kim Kardashian lives her life out in the open with Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The show has been running for 20 seasons and 14 years. But… over time, I think I can safely say that the sisters have actually pulled away from the “warts and all” coverage on KUWTK. I’m not a stan, nor am I a defender, but for years now, KUWTK is more like a “curated” reality show, with its own parallel storylines and selective editing for real-life dramas. People swore up and down that Kim, like, organized her own traumatic robbery in Paris “for the show.” She did not. The only thing about the robbery shown on KUWTK was the aftermath, with a traumatized Kim barely able to do anything but sit with her kids and try to process what happened.

Over the years, KUWTK has only shown highly selective parts of Kim’s marriage to Kanye West as well – as the marriage disintegrated, Kim just gave herself other storylines, like fights with her sisters. So… I don’t really believe the new claims that Kim is “saving her divorce drama” for the show. But that’s what a lot of people claim:

So much for “please respect our privacy.” Kim Kardashian has filmed her marriage problems with Kanye West for the final episodes of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Page Six has exclusively learned. A source with knowledge of their show — which is ending after more than a decade-long run and 20 seasons on E! later this year — said the disintegration of Kim and Kanye’s marriage will feature heavily in the final storyline as they make their exit from the reality show.

The source said, “the Kardashians intend to go out with a bang. They’ve filmed Kim discussing her marriage problems. But everybody involved is on a nondisclosure agreement, because the finale won’t screen until later in 2021.”

What is not clear is how much participation the E! show got from Kanye amid his separation from Kim. A separate source said Kanye is fine with his upcoming divorce. “He understands Kim’s side has to spin that she is sick of him. In reality, he’s been sick of being involved with [the] Kardashians for a long while. Especially her mother, who looms large in all big decisions she makes.”

West, the source added, “seems to be enjoying the brouhaha surrounding his divorce. He is quite familiar with what the Kardashian public relations machine is capable of, and thinks it’s funny that her team is blaming his presidential run on the marriage disintegration.”

So, again, KUWTK is not going to show “fights” between Kanye or Kim, just like they never really showed the extent of Kanye’s mental illness, nor did they exploit Kanye by putting him on camera when he was manic. What it sounds like – the big reveal, per sources – is that Kim will be speaking on camera about how her marriage is over. Maybe they’ll even do a set-up where Kim is talking to her mom or Khloe about it. It’s not even clear to me that Kanye will be on-camera at all, especially since he’s been living in Wyoming for the past year?

Sources also say that Kanye is “less than thrilled” about KUWTK covering the divorce. Again, I have to wonder if A) he really cares and B) he’s even on camera at all? I’ll criticize Kim freely about lots of things, but here’s my super bold take: she has every right to talk about HOW SHE FEELS about getting a divorce, and she has every right to do that for her reality show. I’m not really seeing why any of this is evil or anything. Manipulative? Sure, maybe. But what did people expect?

    Kanye married her knowing his life would be scripted and broadcasted. He participated. As long as it’s not to gaslight someone Currently struggling with a severe mental illness who cares? It’s a show on E! We aren’t forced to watch on its last season.

  2. AppleTartin says:

    I think it’s all bullshit to have a cliffhanger to take them to their next streaming platform. I don’t think she will divorce him. He is a treasure trove of storylines for Kim.

    • escondista says:

      This. If you’re going to make it a part of the show then i will just assume that you fed the story to the press for ratings and that there is no truth to it.

  3. Southern Fried says:

    Of course she will. Ratings, you know. Money, money and more money for these attention whores. The whole lot are garbage people.

  4. Noki says:

    It doesnt matter what they decide,I will say again that they need to tread lightly,catch Kanye on a bad day and all hell will break loose all over twitter.

  5. shanaynay says:

    So divorce him, and then STFU about it. This ‘divorce talk is beyond played out.

  6. lucy2 says:

    Of course.
    Their poor kids.

  7. grabbyhands says:

    Of course it is. They have zero desire to keep anything private plus it has the added benefit of them controlling the narrative. As ever, the whole rollout was planned to the nth degree.

    PMK must be relived that the inauguration went smoothly because the attempted coup kept pushing the impending divorce story line out of the news.

  8. Angel says:

    That’s what he deserves for exposing their personal business to the whole world last year.

    • mkam says:

      what he deserves? these people have been sharing every detail of their personal lives for decades, way before they met kanye.

      • Southern Fried says:

        Yes, Kanye is simply collateral damage, he’s got a mental illness and they use it for ratings. Despicable people.

      • Angel says:

        He did not have to share to the whole world that they almost aborted North last year.

    • MM2 says:

      @Angel I agree with you. People have the right to share what they want to share & she did not want that shared. Just because someone does a show, stars in a movie, is an influencer, or uses social media, does not take away your right to privacy.

  9. LBB says:

    I actually really like that last photo of their family.

  10. EllieK says:

    Or like maybe she can be a decent human being for once and keep that shit private for the sake of her children and mentally ill husband? I think she has enough money as it is and lacks a need to exploit her private immediate family matters for the sake of cash.

    Positives about Kim & Kanye’s marriage:

    #1. Four beautiful children.
    #2. An interracial marriage that was celebrated in popular press with magazine covers and online press.
    #3. Some good discussions on mental health? I’m kinda out of points. But I do think that there’s something to the idea that a divorce doesn’t always represent a failure. Kim & Kanye had several successful years of marriage on their own terms. When we reflect on our own “failed” relationships, sometimes it’s better to look at them in terms of successes… at least that’s what my shrink says ;)

  12. ME says:

    They always make their ex-boyfriends, ex-husbands, and even ex-friends look bad on the show. These women make up their own narrative and try to feed it to the public. Usually the men never say a thing and move on with their lives…but Kanye will be different. If they try to make it as if Kim is just some innocent victim now left to care for four kids all on her own, Kanye won’t be having it. To be honest, it seems like the kids enjoy being in Wyoming with him, especially North.

    wtf is with that stupid peace sign kissy face?? gahhhh enough already!

  14. NotHeidisGirl says:

    Of course she does. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
    Now can all of them please go away?

  15. Yvette says:

    “Kim Kardashian will talk about her divorce drama on the final season of KUWTK.”

    Of course she will. I’m SO glad this is the final season of KUWTK. Can’t wait for the door to hit their enhanced backsides as they leave.

  16. Melissa says:

    Um…is there really any ‘drama’ to cover? Kanye doesn’t seem to give a rat’s ass what Kim does. There won’t be drama until they edit coverage and he can prove it…then I expect drama. At this point it’s zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  17. Amando says:

    I actually don’t even believe that she is going to go through with a divorce. It’s all for the final season and to drum up some interest in their next venture.
