Pete Davidson will only be ‘in the background’ in Hulu’s ‘The Kardashians’

In July, Hulu dropped the teaser trailer for The Kardashians Season 2. Season 1 was successful for Hulu, and it felt like the show’s buzz and popularity justified Hulu giving the Kardashian clan a HUGE paycheck. The Kardashian-Jenners now have even more control over what goes into their reality show and they’re introducing new storylines and what have you. The thing most people talked about from the teaser was the last clip, where you can see Pete Davidson talking to Khloe, then Kim asks him if he wants to shower with her:

That clip made people believe that Season 2 would feature the love story of Kim Kardashian and Pete, that he would be a somewhat significant part of the show. Well, Pete and Kim broke up about two weeks ago. What will happen to Season 2? Will viewers still get to see Pete? Apparently not.

Don’t be fooled by Hulu’s Season 2 trailer for “The Kardashians.” Pete Davidson may be featured in the teaser, but sources tell Page Six he’s barely in the show.

“He’s in the background, but the reality world is not built for people like Pete,” a source told us.

In the teaser, Kim Kardashian, 41, reflects on how “life is good” as she embarks on her new relationship with Davidson, 28. “I have a new boyfriend, and I am just having a really good time,” she says.

The next clip shows the now ex-couple on the night of the Met Gala as Kardashian gives him a racy invitation right in front of her sister Khloé Kardashian. “Babe, do you want to shower with me really quick?,” she asked Davidson. Davidson then rushes behind her as Khloé looks on in shock – but we’re told those glimpses may be all we see of the “Saturday Night Live” alum in the series.

The source described Davidson as “a very private person” and acknowledged that Kardashian “was always super respectful of that.”

“He was not on the first season. I don’t know how they’re doing the second season, but he’s not a part of that world,” they said.

It sounds like Pete was filmed at times for the show but he hopes that the producers will edit some stuff out now that he and Kim are over. Kanye West had a similar energy about appearing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but at the end of the day, he did appear in some episodes. I wonder if this is a huge ass-ache for producers and editors – will Kim ask to have some Pete stuff taken out? Or will she just shrug it off? In the weeks since the breakup, it absolutely sounds more and more like Pete dumped her.

    I believe 100% he broke up with her. I think it was probablly centered around his mental health, he has already stated he seeked medical help because of Kanye’s abuse. Maybe she didn’t support him being public about it. I don’t know this whole releationship just seemed off from the beginning.

    • Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

      Eh, I think it’s because he wants kids and she was finally honest about not wanting any more. I don’t think she anticipated he was going to be more mature about his desires and this relationship.

    • Christine says:

      I’m sure there was a bunch of non-public nonsense Kanye put him through as well. Not to mention the harassment he probably got from fans. As much as Kim has her faults, I can’t help but feel bad for her. She’s never going to be “allowed” to move on.

    I’m sure the producers are used it by now. The Kardashians are known for re-filming episode to fit their narrative.

    I think it’s great for Pete that he got out of that showmance. He seems like a good guy, hopefully he won’t get sucked back into that Kar-Jenner vortex.

    • ME says:

      His mom unfollowed Kim so it is definitely OVER lol ! Most people believe he dumped her. I know Kim’s ego is hurt so she’ll re-shoot scenes for season 2 making it seem like she wanted to dump him.

  4. SomeChick says:

    I don’t think it was a showmance. I think they genuinely liked each other but there’s no place for him in that world. and also Kanye was 100 times worse behind the scenes than even what we saw. I’m glad he noped out of there! he seems like a great guy.

    what does it say when he breaks up with you, tho? I’m glad he wouldn’t let them use him.

    Uh, yeah, only if the family doesn’t feel the need to milk this relationship for publicity as much as ghoulishly possible.
